Arsene Wenger to consider upstairs role… but not at Arsenal


data-js=”article-body” data-insert-mobile-adslot>

He has already received a series of offers in management and, after beginning his career in that role some 34 years ago for Nancy, is still drawn to the idea of returning to the touchline.

“I doesn’t look very good on the beach,” said Wenger. “I like green grass. I like to work on it every day. I didn’t miss a training session in 22 years. I never stayed in my office. That is something that I will miss.

“I keep myself fit. We have staff games – I can still play. I would pick myself every week. People look at your age and make an issue of it. It becomes a bit discrimination. They don’t really look how you work and perform. They look, ‘Oh he is old’. I can understand that as I thought the same when I was young.”

Wenger is clearly referring to the most recent period ofshirt number upon joining from Benfica.The Portuguese forward was given the No.7 shirt once he completed his move to Los Rojiblancos after having worn the No.79 at Benfica.”I wanted the No.79, but they didn’t let me here,” Joao Felix told Eleven Spor his career when, until this season at least, his record against some of the younger and recently acclaimed managers like Mauricio Pochettino and Jurgen Klopp was far more favourable than popular perception.

There is no prospect of him taking any sort of upstairs role just now at Arsenal, although the club would ultimately be open to such an appointment. The and Wenger hopes that some of his old coaching staff will remain, not least for the knowledge they can impart about the culture of the club and the wider competition.

“Of course people who come in also want their own staff, it’s about finding the right adjustment,” he said. “I always tried to have a local person, who knows the culture, who knows the habits, the tradition and makesh Dubai-based airline Emirates, but the Serie A club’s recent fortunesouthampton.The midfielder is being linked with Manchester United and Arsenal this week.”The best thing for me would be to stay here, but I don’t close the door on any club, or any country.

“The earlier the better now. People want hope and to prepare as well next year. The squad doesn’t need much – it has huge potential and good spirit. Two or three additions and this team will compete for the Championship next year.”

Ahead of Wednesday night’s match against Leicester City, Wenger also confirmed that his captain tendon and will now miss the World Cup and not return to training until December. “He is of course devastated,” said the Arsenal manager.

Wenger is also certain that offer. “I am convinced his future is here – it will happen,” he said.

Bills finish fourth overall in toxic differential


Foed with a bid for Lyon midfielder Tanguy Ndombele.The Mirror says City have already had a bid rejected for Lyon powerhouse Ndombele according to reports.It is said that PSG, Juventus and Inter are all interested in the midfielder, but Lyon have rejecr the past two seasons at Buffalobills.com we’ve tried to shed some light on a relatively new metric category where most of the last 15 Super Bowl champions have ranked high. Toxic differential, originally formulated by former Baltimore head coach Brian Billick, takes turnover margin along with big play differential and adds the two together to help determine how well NFL clubs manage risk and reward in executing and preventing big plays. In 2015 Buffalo had their highest ranking in toxic differential.

The Bills were among the league leaders for most of the season in toxic differential. d after he fouled Heung-min Son to give away a penalty in the 2-2 draw with Tottenham.”Of course critics are always here,” he said. “The north London derby, I think we had a good game. I made a mistake with the penalty but if you saw the game, we couNow with the 2015 campaign over Buffalo posted its highest ranking ever in the category according to SportingCharts.com. 

Buffalo finished a lofty plus-35 in toxic differential, the highest figure the club has ever posted since the metric was published by analytic researchers in 2009. It’s also the second time in three seasons the Bills have finished in the top 10. Donetsk goalkeeper Andrei Pyatov insists they’re capable of beating Champions League opponents Manchester City.Shakhtar host the English champions tonight.Pyatov said, “I am not a soothsayer, but I know that Shakhtar always plays for victory. “TherefThey ranked ninth overall in 2013 with their only other positive figure (plus-11).

The Bills tied for eighth in the league in turnover margin with a plus-six figure thanks in part to their 25 takeaways, which ranked 11th in the league. Three of Buffalo’s takeaways were returned for touchdowns.

The second factor was Tyrod Taylor’s ability to protect the football. Buffalo’s quarterback led the NFL with the fewest interceptions among starters who appeared in 10 games or more with just six picks in 14 starts. His touchdown to interception ratio of 3.33:1 ranked seventh among quarterbacks in 2015.

The big play ability of Buffalo’s offense was also critical to their toxic differential ranking. The Bills offense finished first in the NFL in big plays from scrimmage. According to SportingCharts.com, Buffalo had 70 runs of 10 yards or more and 32 pass plays of 25 yards or more. Working against that 102 big play figure on plus side are the 73 big plays against for a big play differential of plus-29. That differential was good for third in the league behind only Carolina and Seattle.

Charles Clay and Sammy Watkins led the team as each of them posted nine plays of 20-plus yards. LeSean McCoy had eight.

“It’s definitely something we focused on in preparation-finding ways we can create big plays,” said Tyrod Taylor. “We progressed each and every week.”

“There were some beautiful things done by guys like Sammy Watkins and Tyrod and LeSean and some of the guys,” said offensive coordinator Greg Roman. “We led the league in explosive plays and leave it at that.”

Toxic differential has been an effective means of determining the teams that often qualify for the postseason. Of the 12 teams that advanced to this year’s NFL playoffs, 10 of them were in the top 12 in toxic differential this season. The two clubs in the top 12 that did not reach the postseason were the Bills and New York Jets.

The three teams that ranked ahead of the Bills ( 35) this season in toxic differential were Carolina ( 54), Seattle ( 49) and Cincinnati ( 36).

Stevie questionable for Sunday


The Bills athletic training staff along with head coach Chan Gailey made the decision to hold Stevie Johnson out of practice on Thursday as his groin was tight and a bit uncomfortable following Wednesday’s practice. The decision might very well prove to have been a wise one.

Johnson was still a limited participant, but did ntheir Europa League round 16 tie with Inter Milan at a neutral venue.It was not played this week as it has been postponed by UEFA due to the coronavirus and the solution could be to play a one-off match at a neutral site.That’s the view of Villaverdeot miss a ster City are following Guctekin.It was revealed in 2017 by Fenerbahce board member Mahmut Uslu that City had made a €5m bid for the talented midfielder but it was rejected.Now, the 20-year-old ‘wants to leave’ the club after a poor season and Citysingle period of Friday’s practice session.

“I did everything,” said Johnson. “Everything that consists of a practice, I was out there running routes and full go with the guys.”

“We’ve got Stevie listed as questionable, but he went out and did all that we wanted him to do today and we’re going to take another long look Sunday morning and make a decision.”

The Bills top wideout in hindsight was glad the staff made him sit Thursday.

“I think coach made the right call along with the guys in the training room with sitting me (Thursday),” said Johnson. “I guess it will only get better from here and we’ve still got only a couple of days until game day. I think it’ll be alright.”

“It helped a lot by doing that and we think another 48 hours will help a lot,” said Gailey. “I feel good about it, but you don’t know.”

Johnson maintains that his groin is healthy after having surgery this past spring, but he found it difficult to describe just what the problem is.

“It is taken care of,” he said. “It’s not a huge issue. I don’t feel mentally that it’s a huge issue. I think it’s something from talking to other players they’ve had the same situation where something may occur and then they’re back steady again. That’s what I believe it is so I was back out there running around.”

Still, Johnson said he’ll be spending a lot of time in the training room the next two days getting treatment. He insists it’s just a proactive approach to keep his groin from keeping him off the field.

“I think it’ll be something that I’ll be taking care of for the rest of the regular season just in case something pops up again,” he said. “It’s about staying in the train the start of the season.Klopp has confirmed Shaqiri will not be involved “for a while” after tearing his calf while on Switzerland duty at the UEFA Nations League.Klopp has revealed that he faces a race against time to be fit for the start of the caing room for my body.”

Buffalo’s number one passing target feels his groin problem is mostly mental, but he’s confident his mind will be free and clear and focused on the game plan Sunday.

“It has to be,” he said. “It’s a big game. Week 1 it’s a division opponent. It’s the Jets. I definitely won’t be thinking about anything else besides trying to beat whoever is in front of me and win the game.”
