Arsenal manager Unai Emery has revealed his delight at his team’s fast start to the game against Liverpool last weekend.One criticism leveled at the Gunners of late has been their slow start to football games and, since that was addressed during the club’s 2-2 draw against Jurgen Klopp’s side and Emery wants that to continue this weekend and beyond.“Against Liverpool I think we had more in the 90 minutes of the game,” he said, according to BT Sport.“Our idea is to repeat matches with this pace over 90 minutes. It’s not easy because other teams have their moments in the matches. But our idea is to continue improving this.”Merson believes Arsenal should sign Sancho Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho might be the perfect player to play for the Gunners, according to former England international Paul Merson.“It is about the progress in the team. The progress is about continuing to create confidence and creating also tactically different ways to improve.”“The first thing we must do to improve is to continue with our way, with our positioning and our aggressiveness, with the ball and without the ball, and then taking confidence to do these things better every match.”“The confidence can come, firstly, from winning matches and then also from when you feel it on the pitch you have a capacity to battle against teams with the potential of (a team like) Liverpool.”

The beverage company tweeted Tuesday that it’ll pop open a limited release of New Coke to promote the new season of Stranger Things on streaming service Netflix. This comes 34 years after the release of the failed drink. Tags Starting on May 23 at 5 p.m. ET, the Coca-Cola Co. will release a limited-supply run of New Coke in the company’s online store. A bundle of two cans of the recipe and a limited-edition and numbered Stranger Things/Coca-Cola and Coke Zero Sugar 8-oz. glass bottle will be available for purchase. Coke will also set up free vending machines filled with New Coke in select cities. Customers who purchase tickets to the World of Coca-Cola in Atlanta or who spend $19.85 or more at Coca-Cola Store Las Vegas on certain days during the week of June 3 will also have an opportunity to score cans of New Coke.

(@CocaColaCo) May 21, 2019 Released in April 1985, New Coke was the Atlanta-based company’s attempt to regain market share that it was losing to other drinks. The new recipe didn’t make any fans, causing a huge backlash among drinkers of the original. It took just three months after the release for Coca-Cola to announce it would reintroduce the old drink that summer, dubbing it Coca-Cola Classic. Stranger Things season 3 is set during the summer of 1985. Originally published May 21, 9:09 a.m. PT.Update, May 22: Includes additional info on how to get New Coke.

Vivendi has triggered a request for a meeting of Telecom Italia’s shareholders to appoint new auditors and has called for the dismissal of chairman Fulvio Conti and four other board members nominated by its rival for control of the Italian telco, Elliott Management.Vivendi has proposed the nomination of Franco Bernabè, Rob van der Valk, Flavia Mazzarella, Gabriele Galateri di Genola and Frencesco Vatalaro to replace Elliott-nominated directors Conti, Alfredo Altavilla, Massimo Ferrari, Dante Roscini and Paolo Giannotti de Ponti.Vivendi said that Elliott had sought to obtain the votes of shareholders at the May 4 meeting that saw control of the company pass from Vivendi to the hedge fund and its allies by saying it would continue to support the management team led by Vivendi appointee Amos Genish but had then engineered Genish’s dismissal in November “without legal basis” and “in violation of responsible corporate governance practice”, having worked to undermine the CEO in the interim.Vivendi accused Elliott of seeking shareholder support by misleading shareholders as to its true intentions – a break-up of the company – and of shielding its own investment from the sharp fall in TIM’s share price under its watch by entering into a collar agreement with JP Morgan last April.Vivendi accused Conti of acting as an executive director, engineering a controversial write-down of assets while refusing to allow the board to discuss recovery plans put forwards by Genish, and of then securing Genish’s dismissal while the latter was outside the country.Vivendi, in its request for a shareholders meeting to be called, also slammed the failure of the TIM board to call a meeting to appoint an external auditor and called on it to convene the meeting “as soon as possible” to appoint new auditors “as required by applicable law provisions”.Vivendi said that, as a shareholder that had invested approvimately €4 billion in TIM, it “cultivates a long-term perspective” to “maximise the value growth” of the business, and argued that it was “essential” that the current governance of the company “be removed as soon as possible to prevent any further damage”.
