  • Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s goal drought distracts from larger problems at Arsenal
    on October 26, 2020 at 12:40 pm

    In Arsenal’s last five Premier League games, star striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has only mustered five shots. At this moment in time, the target he’s most affiliated with is undoubtedly the one on his back. A 1-0 defeat to Leicester City on Sunday night marked the first time the Gabon international failed to score in five consecutive games since 2014 when he suffered a similar barren run at Borussia Dortmund. Fans, pundits and an army of Twitter trolls have been quick to take aim at the sharpshooter who’s drought in the league has extended to 483 minutes of regulation time. That is to be expected when you sign a new contract that reportedly commands over £350,000-per-week in wages. A bumper deal of that magnitude automatically makes you scapegoat-in-chief should you not live up to near impossible expectations. Just ask Mesut Ozil who’s currently enduring one of football’s iciest freeze-outs at the north London club. The fact that Aubameyang’s last league goal came just a few days before penning an extension isn’t great for optics and is doing him no favours. Former Tottenham and England striker Darren Bent was one of many to take a cynical view. “Before he signed his contract, he was absolutely everywhere – running back, tracking back, putting tackles in, breaking forward,” he said on talkSPORT. “There was a real hunger and intensity to his game. At the minute, you can see there’s been a massive drop-off. When you focus so much on getting a new deal like Aubameyang did, you’ll run that extra yard and make that extra effort.” View this post on Instagram Some seasoned goal-scorers are suffering droughts in their leagues 🏜️😣 A post shared by Sport360 (@sport360) on Oct 26, 2020 at 5:55am PDT There’s no denying the 31-year-old has been poor in recent games, but that is true of Arsenal as a whole in the final third. The Gunners have scored just five times in their last five matches in England’s top flight. This season, they rank 17th in the league for shots per game [8.8] and key passes per game [6.7]. Mikel Arteta’s system has facilitated Arsenal’s progress in a number of departments, most notably in terms of their shape, ability to play out from the back and high-pressing game. However, its lack of flexibility and variation has hampered their creativity in the final third. That drawback is further compounded by the deployment of two holding midfielders in the double pivot with Granit Xhaka and new signing Thomas Partey partnering up against Leicester. A 3-4-3 appears to be Arteta’s favoured system but its functionality at Arsenal is at an awkward juncture. It’s evolved to a point that makes for a sturdy structure but has lost the element of unpredictability. Simultaneously, it hasn’t progressed enough for new patterns to develop organically or for players to improvise effectively within it. Arsenal have created just 17 chances in the second half of Premier League games this season, only Fulham (11) have created fewer.If only they had a creator under contract... https://t.co/Xhyd9MPCGU— Squawka Football (@Squawka) October 25, 2020 Arsenal are largely reliant on cross-field balls or lobbed passes down the flanks followed by deliveries into the box. Their passing game is crying out for a creative spark. Arteta’s deduction that Dani Ceballos isn’t a number 10 suggests that he would consider playing one given the opportunity. If only Arsenal had an established World Cup-winning playmaker in their ranks who could seize control in the final third… It’s no surprise that Aubameyang’s goalless run in the league is being blown out of proportion to the point that it’s bordering on being a crisis for the striker who netted against Rapid Wien in the Europa League just three days prior to Leicester’s visit. There are larger problems at Arsenal though. Aubameyang’s critics can continue taking shots at Arsenal’s skipper. Ironically, they too are missing the target.

  • DIFC’s Gate Avenue and INSPIRE host breast health education and Pink Classes
    on October 26, 2020 at 6:21 am

    As part of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Dubai International Financial Centre’s (DIFC), Gate Avenue and wellness studio, INSPIRE are joining forces to host breast health education and curated yoga classes to empower women to take control of their health by educating them about their body and steps to take to help reduce breast cancer risk. The event will be held on Wednesday, October 28 at 5PM, in outdoor area Zone B of Gate Avenue, DIFC. Among women, breast cancer is the most common malignant disease worldwide, accounting for 24% or over 2 million new cancer cases and 15% of cancer deaths in 2018 . According to GLOBOCAN – a cancer database released by the Descriptive Epidemiology Group of the International Agency for Research on Cancer, incident cases are expected to increase by more than 46% by 2040. The good news is that many women can survive breast cancer with early detection and medical care. Joining the program will be certified family physician and functional medicine practitioner, Dr. Basmah Al Rowaily to talk about common household carcinogens or substances that can lead to cancer. Your lavender home smell might be emitting cancer-causing chemicals. Dr. Al Rowaily has a holistic approach to medicine and is determined to get to the root cause of disease, rather than just treating symptoms. Also, Tina Choueiri Chagoury, a licensed clinical dietician, health behavior educator and, breast cancer survivor herself, who was diagnosed with breast cancer and underwent radiation and chemotherapy, will be sharing her personal journey – from diagnosis to recovery – and tips on how to better cope with it as well as the importance of early detection and prevention. The discussion will be 45-minutes, followed by 45-minutes specially designed yoga class inspired by pranic healing and the power of femininity. Gentle yoga poses that promote blood and energy circulation and internal respiration in cells as well as restorative poses that support the release of hormones responsible for reducing anxiety moving the body into parasympathetic system or rest and restore system, combined with meditation and Pranayama (breathing techniques). Also, INSPIRE’s Al Manara studio is currently hosting community yoga classes every Friday at 2PM. Research has shown that yoga can improve the quality of life for breast cancer patients and survivors, reducing hot flashes, joint pain, fatigue, sleep disturbance, and anxiety. Also, can be a powerful tool to boost breast health. Those interested in signing up for the free event must register in advance.

  • How much longer should Man United tolerate Ole Gunnar Solskjaer learning on the job?
    on October 25, 2020 at 2:14 pm

    Eyebrows raised before Manchester United’s meeting with Chelsea swiftly fell as an instantly forgettable goalless draw ensued. Harry Maguire’s headlock and a debut for Edinson Cavani stood out from a contest which sapped momentum earned in Tuesday’s stirring 2-1 victory at Paris Saint-Germain. A curious continuation of the XI which beat Newcastle United 4-1 last weekend, and ignorance of players such as Alex Telles who shone so brightly in the City of Light, was the overriding theme. Football is a sport in which teams reflect their managers. Should there then be any surprise when a listing United are led by the unformed Ole Gunnar Solskjaer? The Norwegian’s side are one of contrasts. Just like his reputation. Is a, seemingly, permanent state of development all of which one of Europe’s great clubs can now aspire to? This is the question executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward and his American paymasters should ask themselves. Solskjaer has neither shown himself to be the second coming of Sir Alex Ferguson no matter the latest run of impressive results, or proven to be as unspeakably out of his depth like David Moyes even in the aftermath of a 6-1 humbling by Tottenham Hotspur. Saturday’s stalemate saw United fail to win their opening three home games for the first time since 1972/73. But the midweek win in the French capital witnessed 10-successive away triumphs, in all competitions, notched for the first time in this storied club’s 142-year history. United registered 14 attempts on goal in both the Parc des Princes and Old Trafford. They veered from being consistently threatening at the home of the 2019/20 Champions League’s beaten finalists when deployed in a five-man defence for much of the running, to utterly toothless on familiar territory in a 4-2-3-1 formation against last term’s fourth-placed finishers in the Premier League. Results have oscillated wildly. 0 – Man Utd have failed to win their opening three home league games to a season for the first time since 1972-73. Blunted. #MUNCHE pic.twitter.com/l2pa9nG6XP— OptaJoe (@OptaJoe) October 24, 2020 Solskjaer’s epic 3-1 win at PSG in March 2019 purportedly earned him the full-time job and made it 14 victories from his opening 17 games. United would, though, then lose eight of the next 12 fixtures when 2018/19 ended in disarray. Form throughout 2019/20 can be viewed through a similar, erratic, prism. United sat 10th from seven games after their worst start to a season in 30 years. They would then, with January’s addition of Bruno Fernandes, finish up a fine third. Post-match press conferences only sporadically provide true insight. Solskjaer’s response to the Chelsea result may have offered a revealing glimpse into his mind-set. “It is a point on the board against a good team,” he said. “Last time we beat PSG we struggled big time. “Our results were shocking. We hardly won a game. “I am keen that it doesn’t happen again.” Is “keen” just a benign way to round off a question, or is it illuminating about the 47-year-old’s methods? Plenty to build on from yesterday's game – time to focus on the next one! 💪#MUFC pic.twitter.com/BiDKVWr3Hq— Manchester United (@ManUtd) October 25, 2020 A lack of direction and inability to successfully develop phases of play has put the handbrake on an impressively assembled squad, just as much as Glazer parsimony. Even inconsistency in criticism is enlightening. Solskjaer’s troops have floundered at various junctures against conservative sides who utilise dogged banks of defenders. This trope has come to define his United. It is not, however, always entirely accurate. Sheffield United, Brighton & Hove Albion, Bournemouth and Aston Villa attempted to nullify them post-lockdown. But this quartet were hammered to such extent that a Premier League record was notched for most-consecutive victories by three or more goals. Liverpool’s Jurgen Klopp and Manchester City’s Pep Guardiola are contemporaries, now Solskjaer is at the helm of a fellow giant. So, too, the unemployed Mauricio Pochettino. All have defined methodologies. But it is an impossible task to neatly summarise Solskjaer’s almost two years since he answered an emergency call when in charge of Molde. There is ample good, plus incongruous bad. The only true constant is the absence of consistency. How much longer should United tolerate someone, even a club great, learning on the job?

  • IPL 2020: MS Dhoni and other star names who have underwhelmed with their performances
    on October 25, 2020 at 1:50 pm

    As the 2020 Indian Premier League enters its final stages, there will be several stars who will be looking to make amends for their underwhelming individual campaigns. These players were rightly or wrongly hyped up at the start of the IPL season, but have failed to deliver the goods expected from them. As experienced campaigners on big-money contracts, there is always the danger of being labelled as a flop if things start to go awry. Unfortunately for the undermentioned stars, some big performances will be needed in the remainder of the campaign if they are to redeem their reputation. GLENN MAXWELL – KINGS XI PUNJAB Image credit – SPORTZPICS for BCCI. Glenn Maxwell’s reputation as one of the most destructive white-ball batsman precedes him wherever he goes, though the IPL has only been treated to glimpse of the actual talent. The Australian maverick has been a fixture in the IPL since 2012, and only once in 2014 has he really taken the competition by storm. Despite his unflattering returns in previous campaigns, Kings XI Punjab paid out big bucks to acquire the Aussie’s services for the 2020 edition. It is safe to say that the franchise hasn’t got their money’s worth so far, with Maxwell enduring a barren run with bat in hand.  Just 102 runs at an average of 14.52 are poor numbers from a player of Maxwell’s calibre and is bound to put off franchises from bidding big for him in future auctions. What’s even worse is the fact that he is yet to slam a single six in the ongoing campaign, with his strike-rate hovering at a dismal 102.00. The saving grace for Maxwell is that KXIP’s team management continue to believe that he will come well eventually. With KL Rahul’s men currently embroiled in a rat race for the play-offs, there is yet time for Maxwell to make a defining statement. ANDRE RUSSELL – KOLKATA KNIGHT RIDERS Image credit – SPORTZPICS for BCCI. For a man who has struck 83 sixes in the two most-recent IPL editions, the current campaign has been a forgettable affair. No batsman in the competition invokes as much fear at the crease as the burly Jamaican, but that factor will be diminishing fast if his current form holds any longer. While he has picked up a handful of wickets with his pace, Russell’s primary skills as a finisher have hardly seen the light of day. He has had plenty of starts in the season, although he has failed to convert either of them into a knock of any substance. Russell is averaging less than 12 with the bat in 2020, with a surprisingly low strike-rate of 131 by his own high standards. To make matters worse for the Windies star, his injury troubles seem to have flared up again and he has now missed out on KKR’s last two outings. It speaks volumes about Russell’s poor form this season that Kolkata have won both those matches and have barely felt his absence. You expect someone like Russell to fire sooner rather than later, and some unlucky bowling attack could be about to face the brunt of his power in the coming games. MS DHONI – CHENNAI SUPER KINGS Image credit – SPORTZPICS for BCCI. MS Dhoni’s dismal form has mirrored that of his side Chennai Super Kings, with the skipper taking a large part of the blame personally. While there have been worse offenders than Dhoni in the CSK side, the spotlight will always be sharper on a player who has become synonymous with the franchise’s success. The veteran wicketkeeper batsman averaged over 80 with the bat across the 2018 and 2019 editions, but his 2020 showings scream of a career on its final legs. It has been a tale of two contrasting halves for Dhoni in the ongoing campaign, with both of them yielding similarly disappointing results. While his circumspect approach at the start of the season displayed a lack of intent in the crease, his reversal to a more aggressive stance in recent games have only brought in further failures. No longer does he look like the finisher who would pull rabbits out of the hat for Chennai, and his heydays seem a long way behind him. A middling average of 25 is the least of Dhoni’s worries, with his decision making and squad selection as captain throwing up further question marks. It will be a sad end to Dhoni’s spectacular association with CSK if he goes out on this abysmal note, and it remains to be seen if he can summon energy for one last push in 2021. AARON FINCH – ROYAL CHALLENGERS BANGALORE Image credit – SPORTZPICS for BCCI. Like his countryman Maxwell, Aaron Finch is another T20 hit for Australia who has failed to translate the same form into the IPL over the years. The opening batsman has shattered plenty of records in international T20 cricket, but has only set the IPL alight on a handful of occasions. Many expected 2020 to be the year that Finch finally cracks the IPL code after finding a new franchise in Royal Challengers Bangalore. Sadly, it just hasn’t happened for the Australia limited-overs skipper, bar a couple of decent knocks. He has been completely shown up by rookie opener Devdutt Padikkal at the other end, which is never a good look for an experienced international. His 236 runs so far have come at an average of 21, while his strike-rate is a poor 111. If this lean spell continues for the Australian, RCB could seriously consider dropping him from the playing XI and bring in someone like Josh Philippe. BEN STOKES – RAJASTHAN ROYALS Image credit – SPORTZPICS for BCCI. It is hard to imagine what it feels like being in Ben Stokes’ shoes currently, with the star England all-rounder arriving in the IPL in the midst of testing times on the family front. Given that he has been away from cricket to be with his ailing father in New Zealand for the past few months, some rustiness was always expected from Stokes in the IPL. That has very much been the case in his five appearances so far, with the all-rounder struggling for fluency in both the batting and bowling departments. His aggregate of 110 runs is the most by any batsman to have not registered a single six, and his strike-rate of 106.79 is reflective of that struggle. Rajasthan have not done themselves any favours by promoting Stokes to an unfamiliar position of an opener, and are subsequently paying the price for some shoddy team management. It hasn’t been any better for Stokes with the ball in hand and he has gone wicket-less so far while also being very expensive. For the insane amount of money which the franchise shelled out for his services, Stokes’ performances for Rajasthan in three editions running now have been abject. This is a man who could do no wrong in an England shirt in a dream 2019. Unfortunately, the Royals have seen none of that magic.
