It’s not like the club is on its knees or anything. The mood is still pretty good, but you are now just waiting to be told the news.’ Freddie Ljungberg could be promoted should Unai Emery be sacked before the end of the season (Picture: Getty)The Daily Mail claimed Emery held talks with Arsenal suits Edu and Raul Sanllehi in the tunnel area in the immediate aftermath of Saturday’s dispiriting draw against Southampton, during which Lacazette scored a 96th minute equaliser against the division’s second bottom club which was greeted with muted celebrations.Head of Football Sanllehi is already in the process of sounding out potential replacements with the likes of Max Allegri and Mikel Arteta, who came close to succeeding Arsene Wenger before Emery’s appointment, in the frame while Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo jumped to the head of the betting markets on Tuesday.After his shock departure from Tottenham, meanwhile, Mauricio Pochettino is available and despite his connection with their local rivals, Paul Merson believes Arsenal should be doing everything to convince the Argentine to move to the Emirates.More: Arsenal FCArsenal flop Denis Suarez delivers verdict on Thomas Partey and Lucas Torreira movesThomas Partey debut?

Allam proud of promoted Tigers

qwuwumar

first_imgHull chairman Assem Allam feels the club can be proud of what they have achieved since he took over two years ago, having moved out of administration to securing promotion to the Barclays Premier League. The Tigers did it the hard way, grinding out a 2-2 draw against npower Championship title winners Cardiff and then having to wait around for Watford’s delayed match against Leeds to finish. But when news filtered through of a late winner for Leeds at Vicarage Road, the celebrations began in earnest at the KC Stadium with Allam and manager Steve Bruce leading the way. “It was fantastic, one of the proudest days of my life,” the Egyptian told BBC Radio 5 Live’s Sportsweek programme. Press Associationcenter_img “It was very stressful but at the same time, when we had four or five minutes left, Watford needed to score two goals to be promoted so that gave us a bit of comfort.” City return to the top flight after a three-year absence and Allam revealed it has come at a personal cost, but one he feels was necessary. “Not only has the club been promoted but we’ve come through administration,” he said. “I bought the club in December 2010 four days before the winding up, so it was a case of saving the club, And in two and a half years of my ownership, we’ve gone from what would have been bankruptcy to the Premier League. “To save the club from bankruptcy is what I call dead money, money I would have saved by waiting four days to buy the club from the receivers. “I would have saved £27million in money owed to the taxman, who enforced the winding-up order, and two banks. “But then the club would have lost 10 points, they would have been relegated and this would have cost more and I didn’t want this, for the community to be deprived of good quality football. So I signed a contract knowing that I’m throwing away £27million for the sake of staying in the Championship.” last_img read more

Cricket News Seven-year-old kid made honorary co-captain for Australia in Boxing Day Test against India

qwuwumar

first_img For all the Latest Sports News News, Cricket News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps. New Delhi: The Boxing Day Test between India and Australia at the Melbourne Cricket Ground saw an unusual sight. Along with Australia skipper Tim Paine and India skipper Virat Kohli, there was a third captain accompanying the two players. Archie Schiller, a seven-year-old kid, had a special moment to cherish as he was appointed the co-captain of the Australian cricket team for this match. India won the toss and chose to bat with Kohli handing a debut to Mayank Agarwal while Ravindra Jadeja and Rohit Sharma were also included. When the presenter asked Paine what he would have done, he said he was not sure but he had asked Archie his opinion. “Archie wanted to bat 100% but I told him that I was not entirely sure,” Paine said. When asked as to what should be the brief for Australia, Archie was clear. “Hit sixes and take wickets,” he replied with a smile. Following the rendition of the national anthems, Archie strode with the other Australian players and accompanied them to the dug-out. The story of Archie Schiller is of inspiration and fighting an uphill battle at such a young age. When Archie was three months old, he was diagnosed with a heart condition that needed immediate surgery. Six months later, he underwent yet another round of heart surgery and last year, he went to Melbourne for his third open-heart surgery. In his story which was told on Cricket Australia’s official website, Archie’s parents were not sure whether he would survive this surgery but luckily, he did and is now part of one of the most iconic events in the sporting calendar.Read More | India vs Australia, live cricket score, 3rd Test: Kohli opts to batArchie being made co-captain of the Australia cricket team was possible due to the efforts of Make-A-Wish Australia, which learned of Archie’s circumstances and aspirations during his operation last year. His inclusion in the squad was made public last year during Australia’s tour to the UAE against Pakistan when Justin Langer, the current coach of the side, made a phone call. Paine, the Australian skipper, delivered the news to Archie on December 22, the day he turned seven. The announcement that he was appointed as the co-captain came on Christmas Day, when a Family Day was announced by BUPA at Yarra Park ahead of the third Test. It was the day when cricketers and their families came together to celebrate the occasion.Read More | Taylor finds Kohli’s off-field conduct ‘terrific’There is plenty at stake for both sides in the Boxing Day Test in Melbourne. India won the first Test in Adelaide by 31 runs but they lost the Perth Test by 146 runs as the four-match series is level 1-1. Kohli would be aiming to become only the second Indian skipper ever to win two Tests Down Under and they have made a good start, batting first on a grassy wicket. last_img read more

Sri Lanka cling on to draw after Kohli masterclass

qwuwumar

first_imgKOLKATA, India (Reuters) – India’s captain Virat Kohli staved off the threat of defeat before their fast bowlers ensured the hosts finished on a high in the drawn opening Test against Sri Lanka in an enthralling final day at the Eden Gardens yesterday.Chasing an improbable target of 231 in little more than a session, the tourists were reeling on 75 for seven before the umpires ruled the light too poor to continue in the final session of the match.With rain washing out most of the first two days in the match, it was a stunning comeback from the world’s top-ranked Test side who were tottering at 79-6 in their first innings at one stage.Kohli propped up his side’s batting on the final day with an unbeaten 104 to register his 18th Test hundred, and 50th across formats, after paceman Suranga Lakmal’s inspired spell in the first session gave Sri Lanka hope of a maiden Test win in India.India, however, rode out the storm before declaring their second innings on 352 for eight immediately after Kohli hit a six to get to three figures against Sri Lanka, who have failed to win in 17 away Tests against the hosts.India seamer Bhuvneshwar Kumar, who took four wickets in the first innings, picked up another four for just eight runs to take the hosts close to a win but the fading light helped Sri Lanka avoid a crushing defeat after dominating the match for more than four days.The 30-year-old Lakmal was the most successful bowler for Sri Lanka in the first innings with four wickets and he returned to haunt the world’s top-ranked side with a triple strike in the second.After resuming on 171-1, India were cruising before Lakmal got a delivery to jag back off the seam and breach KL Rahul’s defence to dismiss the right-hander for 79.Lakmal then sent back the dependable Cheteshwar Pujara and Ajinkya Rahane in the same over to reduce the hosts to 213-4.Dilruwan Perera dived forward to complete a brilliant catch to dismiss Pujara for 22, while Rahane was out leg-before without scoring.Kohli, who appeared unsure of his footwork at the start of his innings, then added 36 for the fifth wicket with Ravindra Jadeja to steady the ship before his partner perished to off-spinner Perera shortly before lunch.Ravichandran Ashwin and wicketkeeper Wriddhiman Saha fell cheaply to all-rounder Dasun Shanaka, leaving Kohli to wriggle India out of trouble while also looking to add enough runs to take the total out of Sri Lanka’s reach.The 29-year-old Kohli, who has 32 hundreds in the 50-over format, was given out leg-before to Lakmal on 72 but survived on review after replays confirmed a thin edge off his bat.In his 119-ball knock, Kohli hit 12 fours and two sixes, the second off Lakmal over wide long-off bringing up his century. He went down on one knee and roared in delight with a clenched fist towards the dressing room.The second match in the three-Test series will be played in Nagpur from Friday.INDIA 1st innings 172 (C.
