KAGAME: We still need Arsenal to go back where it belongs – up there

first_img“I would like to finish my job well,” Wenger had said on Wednesday. “I believe a man has to give his best as long as he is somewhere.“With all my commitment and energy, I would like to walk out of Arsenal one day knowing that until the last day I focused only on Arsenal.“When my job at Arsenal is finished I will see where I go from there but I want to finish this love story well.”Despite his domestic achievements, Wenger has never won a European trophy with Arsenal.Share on: WhatsApp Long-time fan Kagame with former captain Tony AdamsKigali, Rwanda |  THE INDEPENDENT | Arsene Wenger will not get the happy ending he had wished for, and Rwanda President Paul Kagame, a long time fan has said ” this should not have been the kind of ending of an era.”Diego Costa killed Arsene Wenger’s last hope of a glorious Arsenal farewell as his goal sent Atletico Madrid through to the Europa League final  2-1 on aggregate on Thursday.Wenger’s 250th European fixture with Arsenal also to proved to be his last, decided by a typically ruthless finish from Costa, who delivered the sort of barnstorming display defenders must have nightmares about.Soon after Kagame tweeted: “My take on my beloved Club Arsenal- a very good one at the game and a very good coach like a.Wenger ,this should not have been the kind of ending of an era. The coach is leaving and club trophy-less it was long coming! I am still a committed fan going forward :). Blame the owners.”He added that “As I had said way back and just as a good observer…something fundamental needed to change at/about the club. But if anything changed it was not the right one. All the best to all involved! We still need Arsenal to go back where it belongs- up there among the best in the game!”last_img read more

VAR will cause ‘controversy’ admits Premier League chief

first_imgHe hopes there will be fewer stoppages for referees to consult monitors than seen during other events such as the Champions League last season or the recent Women’s World Cup.“I think fans want to see those clear and obvious mistakes changed and put right,” Masters said in China, where he has been attending the Premier League’s pre-season Asia Trophy.“But they don’t want to see the Premier League or English football interrupted, or the pace of the game changed.“I think the only difference you might see is the referees using the referee review area a bit more sparingly and relying more on the VAR for the more subjective decisions.“But we are putting something new into the Premier League and if it needs to be refined or improved or tweaked we will look at it when the moment arises.“We’ve got to let it happen first and keep an open mind about whether it is really working.”Share on: WhatsApp FILE PHOTO: VARShanghai, China | AFP | Premier League interim chief executive Richard Masters admits VAR is certain to cause “controversy” when the technology makes its English top-flight debut in the forthcoming season.The video referee system will be used for the first time in the Premier League after its introduction was delayed for a year to allow time to develop the system.VAR has been used in England in the FA Cup and League Cup, as well as in numerous other foreign leagues and tournaments including the Champions League.It hasn’t been a huge success, with complaints from managers and fans about the slowness of the system and mistakes made by the officials.“I have no doubt it will create some controversy because it is about the big decisions but we are prepared for that,” Masters said.“We have spent two years working up to this point, and we were committed to doing it in our heads for two years.“We have been training and testing and making sure when it happens, particularly on Saturday afternoons when we have got multiple matches going on, that we have a number of VARs trained. We feel that is done and we are ready to launch it.”Masters is adamant the Premier League have looked at ways to ensure VAR operates effectively, taking lessons from the initial use of the system elsewhere.last_img read more

CONGU launches updated website

first_img26 Oct 2016 CONGU launches updated website The Board of CONGU® – the Council of National Golf Unions – has announced the launch of their new, updated website.Chairman, Jim McArthur commented: “This has been a long process with much thought being given particularly to the layout of the website and to how this would best serve our aims and objectives.“We have set out to make the site simpler to use and to be more instructional for both players and club officials alike. There are many players who are quite happy to accept the handicap system as it is without wishing to know in detail how it works, but there are also those who have a desire to understand the handicapping system better, and have often criticised CONGU for not making it simpler to understand.“Hopefully, the addition of the Quick Guides, and a complete online manual will help to address these criticisms, and we invite golfers and club officials alike to visit  www.congu.com”Image © Leaderboard Photographylast_img read more
