Ole Gunnar Solskjaer Holds 'crisis Talks' With Senior Man Utd Players
~2.1 mins read

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has held ‘crisis talks’ with six senior players ahead of this weekend’s Premier League clash with Watford.

United go into the game at Vicarage Road with one win from their last six league fixtures, including embarrassing home defeats to Liverpool and Manchester City.

Solskjaer is under huge pressure to get a win against a Watford side that sits just two points above the relegation zone and has the fourth-worst defensive record in the Premier League so far.

It has been rumoured in recent weeks that key players have grown frustrated this season. Earlier this month, Bruno Fernandes was said to be among those concerned by the lack of clear game plans by Solskjaer and his staff.

Meanwhile, Cristiano Ronaldo, although not expecting to find the exact same club he left in 2009, is said to be ‘shocked’ by how far standards have fallen.

The Daily Mail writes that Solskjaer spoke with Fernandes, Ronaldo, Harry Maguire, Luke Shaw, Victor Lindelof and Nemanja Matic at a 10am meeting at the club’s Carrington training ground on Thursday morning.

The main point of discussion was how they would turn things around, as well as a tactical plan following a recent shift to a back three system.

With the majority of the United squad called up by their respective countries for World Cup qualifiers, Solskjaer used the first few days of this month’s international break to get away from it all by taking a short holiday with his family back in his native Norway.

Immediately after Watford, United face Villarreal in the Champions League, where anything other than a win would leave their progression to the knockout stages in doubt. Then come tough back-to-back Premier League fixtures against Chelsea and Arsenal.

International Olympic Committee Asks All Sports To Ban Russia And Belarus
~2.2 mins read
The Executive Board (EB) of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) discussed again today the dilemma the Olympic Movement is currently facing after the breach of the Olympic Truce by the Russian government and the government of Belarus through its support in this.

The Olympic Movement is united in its mission to contribute to peace through sport and to unite the world in peaceful competition beyond all political disputes. The Olympic Games, the Paralympic Games, World Championships and World Cups and many other sports events unite athletes of countries which are in confrontation and sometimes even war.

At the same time, the Olympic Movement is united in its sense of fairness not to punish athletes for the decisions of their government if they are not actively participating in them. We are committed to fair competitions for everybody without any discrimination.

The current war in Ukraine, however, puts the Olympic Movement in a dilemma. While athletes from Russia and Belarus would be able to continue to participate in sports events, many athletes from Ukraine are prevented from doing so because of the attack on their country.

This is a dilemma which cannot be solved. The IOC EB has therefore today carefully considered the situation and, with a heavy heart, issued the following resolution:

In order to protect the integrity of global sports competitions and for the safety of all the participants, the IOC EB recommends that International Sports Federations and sports event organisers not invite or allow the participation of Russian and Belarusian athletes and officials in international competitions.

Wherever this is not possible on short notice for organisational or legal reasons, the IOC EB strongly urges International Sports Federations and organisers of sports events worldwide to do everything in their power to ensure that no athlete or sports official from Russia or Belarus be allowed to take part under the name of Russia or Belarus.

Russian or Belarusian nationals, be it as individuals or teams, should be accepted only as neutral athletes or neutral teams. No national symbols, colours, flags or anthems should be displayed.

Wherever, in very extreme circumstances, even this is not possible on short notice for organisational or legal reasons, the IOC EB leaves it to the relevant organisation to find its own way to effectively address the dilemma described above.

In this context, the IOC EB considered in particular the upcoming Paralympic Winter Games Beijing 2022 and reiterated its full support for the International Paralympic Committee (IPC) and the Games.

The IOC EB maintains its urgent recommendation not to organise any sports event in Russia or Belarus, issued on 25 February 2022.

The IOC EB has, based on the exceptional circumstances of the situation and considering the extremely grave violation of the Olympic Truce and other violations of the Olympic Charter by the Russian government in the past, taken the ad hoc decision to withdraw the Olympic Order from all persons who currently have an important function in the government of the Russian Federation or other government-related high-ranking position, including the following:

Mr Vladimir Putin, President of the Russian Federation (Gold, 2001)

Mr Dmitry Chernyshenko, Deputy Prime Minister of the Russian Federation (Gold, 2014)


City Are In Trouble’: Some Arsenal Fans React To Shock News About £25m Gunner
~2.2 mins read

Arsenal have reportedly been given a very surprising but very welcome boost.


It had been widely reported that Arsenal would be without Kieran Tierney for their trip to Manchester City tomorrow.


Scotland’s Stuart Armstrong tested positive for the virus that has swept the globe in 2020 and his international team-mate Tierney was deemed to have been a close contact of the Southampton midfielder.


Consequently, the Gunners left-back had been instructed to self-isolate for a period of two weeks.



But The Scottish Sun has today reported that Arsenal will have Tierney available for the visit to Eastlands after club doctor Gary O’Driscoll held ‘productive talks’ with Scottish government and the Scottish Football Association, after insisting that the 22-year-old had adequately socially distanced himself from Armstrong.




Here’s how fans of the North London side reacted to what would be a major boost.

In excellent form and performing impressively in big matches this season, Al Hain-Cole expects Mourinho's men to prove too strong for the Gunners
Article continues belowTottenham will be looking to make a major statement when Arsenal visit the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in Sunday’s Premier League clash.

Jose Mourinho’s men are flying high at the top of the league going into the weekend with six wins and just one loss from 10 games, while their local rivals are struggling down in 14th place.

Tottenham vs Arsenal Latest Odds

Unbeaten in their last four North London derbies, the hosts are 19/20 (1.95) favourites with bet365 to maintain bragging rights with a victory against their neighbours.

The Gunners have claimed just four points from the last available 18 but can be backed at 14/5 (3.80) to kick start their campaign by coming out on top on enemy territory.

Article continues belowTwo of the last three meetings between this pair have resulted in draws, and there are odds of 13/5 (3.60) available on them cancelling each other out once again.Tottenham vs Arsenal Team News

Sergio Reguilon, Toby Alderweireld and Harry Kane all passed late fitness tests for Spurs, however Erik Lamela is out.

David Luiz does not feature despite sitting out Thursday’s Europa League clash with Rapid Vienna following his head injury against Wolves, however Thomas Partey has recovered from injury. Nicolas Pepe is suspended.

Tottenham: Lloris; Aurier, Alderweireld, Dier, Reguilon; Hojbjerg, Sissoko, Lo Celso; Bergwijn, Son, Kane

Arsenal: Leno; Bellerin, Holding, Gabriel, Tierney; Partey, Xhaka; Saka, Willian, Lacazette; Aubameyang

Tottenham vs Arsenal Preview

It is not only the eight-point advantage that makes Spurs such clear favourites going into this clash, but also recent performances in big matches.

Having romped to a memorable 6-1 victory at Old Trafford early in the season, they have put in controlled performances to see off Manchester City 2-0 and earn a valuable 0-0 draw away at Chelsea in the last two fixtures.

With just two goals to their name in the last six league fixtures, it is hard to see Mikel Arteta’s out-of-form team having the guile or the confidence to put an end to their neighbours’ strong run with a first derby away win since 2014.

Tottenham vs Arsenal Tips and Predictions

Instead, those 19/20 (1.95) seem far too good to pass up on a Tottenham team that has now lost just once in 16 league matches proving too strong for an Arsenal side with five defeats to their name in the last eight.
