Wind Warning Continues into Sunday evening


Henry eyes ‘dream’ job as Arsenal manager

first_imgWenger is under contract at Arsenal until 2019 but a failure to qualify for the Champions League for a second straight year would ramp up pressure for him to step down.Asked on-air after the game about whether replacing Wenger would appeal to him, the Sky Sports pundit, who is also a member of Belgium’s coaching staff, said: “I still have a job to do with Belgium, but let’s see what’s going to happen.“It will be a dream for me, but I’m still with Belgium.“Interested? Yes, who wouldn’t be? But I can’t talk about that out of respect for the man that is in charge still and my job that I’m doing right now with Belgium. But who wouldn’t be interested?”Henry, who was brought to Arsenal by Wenger in 1999, believes a lack of consistency is the key to the club’s troubles, with the Gunners having lost six games in all competitions since the turn of the year.“With Arsene, what is difficult is when you have bad momentum,” the 40-year-old told Sky Sports News on Monday.“The consistency is not always there and you need to be consistent. You need to also sometimes have some good games away from home.“The feeling with the fans is that you cannot brag about the win because next week we might be in trouble.“What’s difficult when you start to lose is getting that energy and commitment back. When you don’t win the league for a long time — 14 years running — that doesn’t help.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Arsenal legend Thierry Henry has already moved into coaching, working with the Belgian national team © AFP/File / Glyn KIRKLONDON, United Kingdom, Feb 26 – Arsenal’s all-time top scorer Thierry Henry said it would be a “dream” to manage the club, whose season is threatening to unravel after their capitulation to Manchester City in the League Cup final.Arsene Wenger’s side crumbled 3-0 at Wembley on Sunday and languish 10 points off the top four in the Premier League, with the Europa League their only chance of silverware this season.last_img read more

‘Lucky’ Mane trains sights on Real Madrid

first_img0Shares0000Liverpool forward Sadio Mane celebrates a goal during the Champions League semi-final against Roma © AFP/File / Isabella BONOTTOLONDON, United Kingdom, May 22 – Sadio Mane says he is a “lucky boy” to play alongside Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino in Liverpool’s devastating forward line as he bids to sink Real Madrid in the Champions League final.The Liverpool forward has struck 19 times this season and wants more as the Reds take on the holders for the European title in Kiev on Saturday. “I think more goals are coming,” said the Senegal international. “Of course I am happy but as a striker you’d love to score every single game to help your team.”Mane, 26, has been the junior partner in a formidable forward trio this season. Salah has led the way with an outstanding 44 goals while Firmino has weighed in with 27 in all competitions.“Like I have always said, I have always been enjoying playing alongside these great players,” said Mane. “They make everything easier for me. I am a lucky boy.“But we always talk about the front three. Don’t forget it starts from the guys behind. They make it easier. The power of Liverpool Football Club is the collective. We always do everything together, this is our power.”Real are chasing a third successive European crown, a fourth in the past five years and a record-extending 13th in total.Liverpool have won the title five times themselves but this is their first appearance in the final for 11 years and they did not even play in Europe last season.The Spanish giants are the clear favourites but Mane is confident Liverpool, who enjoyed impressive wins over Manchester City and Roma in the knockout stages, have enough quality to win.“It was not easy, especially from having the play-off against Hoffenheim and the group stage, but now we are in the final,” he said. “Maybe that is a surprise for many people but for us it’s something we have always believed in.“Of course it will not be easy because we know they have experience and also they have qualities in the team. We respect them a lot but we also have players and staff to beat any team in the world.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

On the gang front

first_imgWith the appropriate swiftness and sense of urgency, the Los Angeles Police Department has swept through several of the city’s key neighborhoods, waging a guerrilla campaign against L.A.’s gangs. And, albeit with much less swiftness and sense of urgency, members of the City Council are beginning to look into how to tackle the gang problem comprehensively. Taken in total, this is a positive sign that Los Angeles is finally getting serious about eradicating the scourge of urban terrorism that gangs inflict on our neighborhoods. On Friday morning, the LAPD and the county’s Department of Probation cracked down on gang members throughout Southern California, from Palmdale to Hollywood, with special emphasis on Panorama City and Mission Hills. Responding to two recent slayings stemming from a shattered peace between two rival gangs, the law enforcement agencies were determined to contain the violence before it grew out of hand. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWalnut’s Malik Khouzam voted Southern California Boys Athlete of the Week And so 84 officers from six agencies raided 54 locations, arresting 22 gang members and confiscating various illegal weapons. “This wasn’t a one-time thing,” said Mission Area Capt. Kirk Albanese. “This is going to be an ongoing effort until we get this under control.” As well it should be. But fighting gangs takes much more than a strong police presence, and that’s where the City Council comes into the equation. On Friday, the council approved a measure calling for an outside consultant to study the possibility of creating a new division to coordinate anti-gang efforts. To be sure, studies and consultants are more often a way for politicians to ignore problems, not confront them, and public vigilance will be necessary to make sure this isn’t just one more tedious exercise in bureaucracy. That said, there is a logic to centralizing anti-gang efforts – whether it’s family interventions, after-school programs or law enforcement – so as to maximize results. If the City Council is sincere about comprehensively taking on gangs, that is a welcome development. Because while police sweeps are crucial to combating gang culture, far better would be to overhaul that culture entirely.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
