Wenger wants a line to be drawn

first_img Wenger believes it is a collective responsibility not to take complaints too far, and admits he often has to rein himself in, the latest coming on Wednesday night after berating Norwegian referee Svein Oddvar Moen at half-time of Arsenal’s Champions League tie in Monaco where Alexis Sanchez had been cautioned for simulation. “With the team I don’t think we have had too much of that problem, we have never been reproached for doing it, but I question myself on my individual behaviour, that is true, because I am sometimes keen to as well,” said Wenger, whose side will be out to sustain their impressive Barclays Premier League form at Newcastle on Saturday. “We want everybody to be respected and the referees are part of everybody. “You want players to be ready to fight for each other. But how far has that to go in the behaviour? You have to draw a line somewhere, you cannot go after every decision of the referee. “You have to stop or you push the referees. How far can you go?” Wenger accepts managers must also show constraint on the touchline, rather than continually bend the ear of the fourth official. “Sometimes it helps you to get your frustration out, but I don’t think it is right, honestly. That doesn’t mean I don’t do it. I do,” he said. “I have looked back on the tape sometimes, and even sometimes at half-time I think (to myself) ‘come on, stop that, my friend’, and then I think in the second half I will not say a word to him any more.” Football Association chairman Greg Dyke has spoken of his concern over the “pretty scary increase” in such incidents, which have been highlighted recently in games such as when Chelsea’s players surrounded referee Bjorn Kuipers during their Champions League tie against Paris St Germain. At the end of last year, the FA wrote to clubs to remind them of their responsibilities, with some 16 having been charged by the governing body already this season for failing to control their players. Press Association While Wenger’s current Arsenal side are not high on the offenders list, that was not always the case when the French coach first arrived at Highbury in the late 1990s, and the likes of Patrick Vieira, Emmanuel Petit, Martin Keown, Ian Wright and Tony Adams provided the backbone of the squad. “We have less physical players and more technical players than before, that is true,” said Wenger, who once had to face a running list of the red cards under his tenure. “We had the old guard from England who were more educated in the English style and ready for a fight every time. “The game has changed. It was more physical, more direct and more open to challenges. “Yes, the supporters like it, I like it as well, but at some stage you have to stop.” Arsenal head to Newcastle looking to keep up the pressure on second-placed Manchester City, whom they now trail by just a point following a run of eight wins from the last nine Premier League games. Wenger, though, admits to concerns over player burnout, with the likes of Sanchez having given so much in recent weeks. “Yes, he is a bit (fatigued). Also, because he is in a position where he has scored less, he is a bit wants to force his game and then he is more included in physical battles,” said Wenger. “Maybe his goalscoring is on his mind so he wants to do too much and he wants to force his game. “I am tempted at some stage (to give him a rest), I have been for a long time. “It is not that he won’t let me, I will decide that. “It is just that every game now is so important, you always have a hesitation to do it.” Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger believes a line must be drawn over confronting referees – and that includes for himself. last_img read more

Cricket News MS Dhoni shenanigans light up Chepauk in Chennai Super Kings practice before IPL 2019

first_img For all the Latest Sports News News, Cricket News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps. New Delhi: When one looks at the dynamics of cricket crowds for matches, any international match involving India with other nations results in sold-out stadiums. However, the dynamics at the MA Chidambaram stadium in Chepauk is totally different. This is the home venue of the Chennai Super Kings, the franchise led by the inspirational MS Dhoni. For their practice session alone, over 12,000 people turn up to watch their favorite heroes practice. Chennai Super Kings made a return to the IPL in 2018 after serving a two-year ban due to the spot-fixing scandal in the 2013 IPL and this has once again resulted in fans turning up in large numbers.Chepauk has been starved of action for a very long time. In 2018, the first match between Chennai Super Kings and Kolkata Knight Riders witnessed a thriller and CSK won the match. However, the rest of the games were moved out of the city due to protests by political parties over the Kaveri issue. One will be hoping that in 2019, Chennai Super Kings play all their home games at Chepauk and they will get the chance to play the final in front of their adoring home fans. Before the start of the 2019 IPL, the team indulged in a practice session. There were two teams, the batting XI and the bowling XI and they battled it out. Nearly 15000 people turned up and the players had plenty of fun. The CSK CEO, Kasi Viswanathan, was in attendance greeting the players. There was also a moment when a fan tried to catch MS Dhoni yet again. In the Ranchi ODI, one fan had breached the security and tried to catch Dhoni but he proved to be unsuccessful. In Chepauk, another fan tried to catch Dhoni and the former Indian skipper dodged him successfully, sometimes using bowling coach L Balaji as a shield. The Batting Lions squad were boosted by a knock of 56 from Suresh Raina and it included six sixes. However, the result was immaterial for the official Twitter handle of CSK said, ‘Batting Lions won by a margin of yellove to the power of inifinity.’The love and admiration shown by the fans of CSK, even for a practice session, has shown that MS Dhoni’s side is truly the spirit of the IPL.center_img CSK has won the IPL title three times in 2010,2011 and 2018.CSK’s games in Chepauk in 2018 were shifted due to the Kaveri protests.CSK returned to the IPL in 2018 after the end of their two-year ban. highlightslast_img read more

Barnwell takes six-for before scoring a century as DCC dominate UG

first_imgCHRISTOPHER Barnwell enjoys the University of Guyana’s (UG) bowling. Yesterday he stormed to his third consecutive century against the side in two-day cricket, but he also proved his might with the ball, by registering a five-wicket haul. It is the second time in his career that he has scored a century and picked up a five-wicket haul – the first was also against UG.In the GISE/Star Party Rentals and Trophy Stall first-division two-day cricket clash, Barnwell delivered one of his best bowling figures at this level – 6-16 from eight overs – to lift the home-team Demerara Cricket Club (DCC), to a first-innings lead.When bails were lifted after day one, UG were on 0-0, two overs into their second innings, trailing by 207 runs.   Batting first the visitors were undone by the ferocity of Barnwell’s fast medium bowling. After K. Roberts had sent him for a six and a four in the opening over, Barnwell recomposed himself in his second over to get three quick wickets.From 12 without loss, UG struggled to 8-36 before Pavindralall Persaud and Yekini Favourite put together 58 runs for the ninth wicket. Persaud was particularly destructive after settling in. The middle-order batsman struck four consecutive sixes and a four in a top score of 39, while Favourite finished with four fours in his 22, but those scores were plasters over the wound that the national cricketer Barnwell delivered to the visitors as they succumbed for 94 in 30.1 overs.Carlton Jacques supported Barnwell with 2-12 from 7.1 overs.  In the middle, DCC lost their openers early, but national cricketer Tevin Imlach blasted his way to 73 (8×4, 1×6). Although his innings was of a high quality, Barnwell’s took over the spotlight as he spanked 11 fours and 10 huge sixes in a top score of 134.The middle-order batsman looked like he would have batted out the day, but he succumbed to Persaud. He had belted the off spinner for a six off his first ball over the deep mid-wicket region and was attempting a similar shot the very next, but was caught.UG bounced back by picking up the last four wickets for 29 runs, but they were still trailing the home team by 207. The match is set to continue this morning at the Queenstown venue.last_img read more
