Wenger calm about contract talks

first_img The French coach – who turns 64 next month and is now the longest-serving manager in the top flight – will come to the end of his current deal in the summer of 2014, but has indicated he would be open to extending his stay. Wenger continues to hold the full support of owner Stan Kroenke and the board, with chief executive Ivan Gazidis stressing earlier this summer negotiations would continue quietly behind the scenes. The Gunners boss proved key in the record-breaking £42million deal to bring Mesut Ozil from Real Madrid on transfer deadline day, and has always maintained the continued drive for success on the pitch comes ahead of any speculation over his own future. Speaking ahead of Saturday’s Barclays Premier League game at Sunderland, Wenger again reiterated any negotiations would not be rushed. “We are in no hurry. We are in September and my contract finishes in June. There is a long way to go,” he said. “There is no need to plan (any talks). I have said many times I want to do well with this club and in the end I will sit down and think ‘how well have I done with the team I have had?’ That has to be sufficient for me to decide yes or no. “One of the main judgments you can have about a manager is how well he does with his team.” Wenger certainly pulled off a transfer coup with bringing in the marquee signing of Ozil. Before the 1-0 win over big-spending Tottenham ahead of the international break, Wenger had seen moves for Gonzalo Higuain, Luis Suarez and Yohan Cabaye all fail to materialise, and only secured the free transfers of Yaya Sanogo and Mathieu Flamini, while a loan move for Palermo goalkeeper Emiliano Viviano was also completed on deadline day. The Arsenal manager, though, was relieved to have finally allayed the criticism he was not ready to spend big for the right player. Press Association Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger maintains there is “no hurry” over his contract extension talks with the Barclays Premier League club. “When I told you two or three days before (the transfer deadline), I looked a bit lonely when I said I was optimistic, but in the end it happened,” said Wenger. “I thought we had a chance to do it, a small one, but we worked very hard on it until the end. “It was very complicated in the end because the timing was short, but on Sunday when I came to the Tottenham game, just at two o’clock I thought we will manage to do it. Before the game I knew we were 90% there.” Wenger added: “What is very important for us is to find world-class players. There are not plenty around. “We had to go through some years when I signed a long-term contract where we had some restricted financial potential, and the target was to stay in the Champions League in this period. We managed to do it, and we are now in a strong position financially.” last_img read more

Poyet delighted to win Brown appeal

first_img “Naturally, we are delighted with their decision, which is fair and just.” Brown was dismissed in the first half of Saturday’s top-flight contest at the Britannia Stadium, which Sunderland lost 2-0, for a sliding challenge on Charlie Adam. The Black Cats man, travelling at speed when he made the one-footed tackle, won the ball and replays suggested any contact between the two players had been minimal. Referee Kevin Friend deemed it worthy of a straight red card – a decision that left Poyet livid and calling for an apology from Mike Riley, the head of the Professional Game Match Officials Board. Friend has not been given a match for the next two rounds of Premier League games. Poyet added on Tuesday: “I have spoken with Mike Riley and, whilst the details of our conversation will remain private, I am satisfied with the outcome. “Of course it was hugely frustrating to have Wes sent off, but we accept that officials are only human and, like everyone, they can make mistakes. “Having the red card rescinded goes some way to rectifying the error and we are delighted to have Wes available for Saturday’s game at Aston Villa.” Press Association Sunderland boss Gus Poyet has welcomed what he regards as a “fair and just” decision after the Football Association overturned Wes Brown’s red card against Stoke. The FA announced on Tuesday that the Wearside outfit’s appeal against their defender’s sending-off had been upheld, meaning he is now free to be selected for the Barclays Premier League game at Aston Villa on Saturday. And giving his reaction, Poyet said on Sunderland’s official website: “I would like to express my thanks to the panel for giving the matter their consideration. The FA also revealed that Crystal Palace were unsuccessful with their appeal against the red card Eagles midfielder Yannick Bolasie received in their top-flight game at Hull on Saturday. Bolasie will now serve a three-match suspension. His straight red card was issued by referee Anthony Taylor for a challenge on Jake Livermore 12 minutes from the end of the match at the KC Stadium, which Palace won 1-0. A statement from the FA said: “An Independent Regulatory Commission has heard two separate claims of wrongful dismissal involving Sunderland’s Wes Brown and Yannick Bolasie of Crystal Palace. “With regard to Brown, who was dismissed for serious foul play during Saturday’s game at Stoke City, the claim was upheld. As a result, his three-match suspension has been withdrawn with immediate effect. “The claim in relation to Bolasie, who was dismissed for serious foul play during his side’s match at Hull City on Saturday, was unsuccessful therefore his three-match ban remains with immediate effect.” last_img read more

UW letdown in Big House

first_imgJEFF SCHORFHIEDE/Herald PhotoANN ARBOR, Mich. — Michigan had five turnovers, one first down and 21 total yards in the first half. The home crowd of 109,833 booed the Wolverines (2-2, 1-0) as they trotted off the field down 19-0 to visiting No. 9 Wisconsin at intermission. At that point, the game was all but over.But the Badgers’ dropped passes and inability to finish drives with touchdowns — which seemed meaningless before halftime — came back to haunt them in the end, as the Wolverines scored 27 straight points to beat Wisconsin (3-1, 0-1) 27-25 in stunning fashion.“We didn’t finish, we didn’t take advantage of opportunities we had,” cornerback Allen Langford said. “We had them where we wanted them to be, but we didn’t finish. We’ve got to play four quarters, and that’s something we just did not do.”Down 27-19, the Wisconsin defense forced Michigan to punt, giving the offense one more chance to tie the game with 1:19 left on the clock. Quarterback Allan Evridge orchestrated a drive that ended in a touchdown strike to David Gilreath with 0:13 left to play. And after Evridge completed a two-point conversion pass to tight end Travis Beckum — who didn’t play until late in the fourth quarter because of a lingering hamstring injury — it seemed as if the game was headed for overtime. But an “ineligible receiver downfield” penalty nullified the play, pushing the Badgers back five yards.“[Travis] lined up over to the right, we got him over to the left, Kyle (Jefferson) tried to adjust him, but he lined up on the line of scrimmage,” head coach Bret Bielema said. “Obviously he should have lined up off it, which would have made the play legal.”UW was out of timeouts, and Beckum’s confusion at the line proved to be costly.“It’s stuff like that that we practice all the time and should be second nature,” co-captain Chris Pressley said of the mental mistake.Moments later, Evridge’s pass sailed over the head of wide receiver Isaac Anderson, sealing the Michigan comeback victory.“I got hit,” Evridge said of the missed conversion. “[Isaac] was in the back of the end zone, I tried to go high with it; I didn’t even see where it went.”It was that kind of day for the Badgers, who failed to put the home team away when they had the chance early.“There were a lot of missed opportunities out there on the field from an offensive standpoint, and we just let that linger,” Bielema said.The Wisconsin defense was dominant in the first half, as Michigan quarterback Steven Threet headed into the locker room 2-for-10 for negative-7 yards passing. But when the Wolverines finally got on the board in the third quarter after a 26-yard connection from Threet to tight end Kevin Koger, the tides began to turn.“They definitely came out swinging in the second half,” Langford said. “Once they got that first touchdown, it kind of swung [the momentum] in their favor, and we weren’t able to catch up with it.”After a pair of Brad Nortman punts, the Wolverines got the ball back on their own 15-yard line. The Wisconsin defense seemed to come up with a big stop, but a “roughing the passer” call on defensive end Matt Shaughnessy kept the Michigan drive — which ended in a 35-yard Brandon Minor touchdown run — alive, bringing the score to 19-14.“Defensively, after that first touchdown, they had good eyes on the sidelines,” Bielema said. “But when that second one hit, I think their confidence value really went down.”On the next play — after a Bryan Wright touchback — Evridge’s pass hit wide receiver Kyle Jefferson on the hip and went straight up into the air. Linebacker John Thompson grabbed it and followed a wall of maize and blue into the end zone. The Wolverines missed the ensuing two-point attempt, but the damage was done. Just like that, Michigan took its first lead of the day 20-19, one that it refused to surrender.“They just wanted it more in the second half,” co-captain DeAndre Levy said. “We didn’t execute, and they took advantage of it. They got the momentum, and we couldn’t get it back.”Freshman running back Sam McGuffie provided the dagger on the Wolverines’ next possession with a 3-yard touchdown run following Threet’s 59-yard scamper up the middle.“[Our defense was] out there quite a bit [in the second half,]” Bielema said. “[On offense] we went three and out, three and out, three and out and anytime you do that, you’re going to have a lot of fatigue physically and mentally as well. Our inability to convert first downs and move the chains on offense had an adverse effect on our defense big time.”A confused Levy disagreed.“I don’t think it was fatigue,” the senior said. “I don’t really know what it was; I’m baffled. I don’t know what just happened.”His teammate, on the other hand, wasn’t quite as shocked.“I’m not surprised. This is college football; anything can happen,” Langford said. “That definitely just happened right there. It’s definitely one of the hardest losses I’ve been a part of. But it did just happen. We’ve just got to take advantage of this and not let it beat us twice.”Wisconsin will look to rebound Saturday when it hosts Ohio State at Camp Randall Stadium at 7 p.m.last_img read more
