Wenger tries to lift bruised stars

first_img Press Association There was little sign of what was to come when Arsenal raced into the lead on six minutes as Olivier Giroud swept home a left-wing cross from Oxlade-Chamberlain, who was replaced at half-time with what could prove to be a serious knee injury. However, Villa – who battled against relegation last season – responded well and were level after Gabriel Agbonlahor had been upended by Wojciech Szczesny. Although the Poland goalkeeper saved Christian Benteke’s penalty, the Belgian headed in the rebound. After both sides produced plenty of hefty challenges, the defining moment of the match came on the hour. Koscielny looked to have won the ball in his sliding challenge with Agbonlahor, only for referee Anthony Taylor to belatedly point to the penalty spot once again. Benteke only needed one attempt this time as he put Villa in front before Arsenal’s afternoon got worse as Koscielny, booked for his foul on Agbonlahor, was shown a red card after collecting a second caution when he went through the back of Andreas Weimann. Although Wenger admitted the “stubborn” performance of Taylor had left him “quite amazed”, Arsenal still created enough chances with 10 men to get something from the game as Villa goalkeeper Brad Guzan made two exceptional saves to deny first Tomas Rosicky and then Santi Cazorla. Villa defender Antonio Luna, signed from Seville, added a late third for the visitors on the break – before chants of “spend some money” and jeers rang out from the disgruntled home support. United States international Guzan felt the victory was testament to the spirit within the Villa squad, forged during last season’s battle for survival. “We are confident in what we are about as a team, in our abilities,” he said. “We wanted to come down here and make a statement.” Villa head to Chelsea for a rearranged match on Wednesday night. Guzan added: “To come down here and get a result like we did, we can take this result forwards. “We know there is a lot of football to be played in a long season ahead of us, so we will enjoy this now, then be focused and ready to go again at Chelsea.” Saturday’s match also featured the first use of the Premier League’s new goal decision system (GDS) when a 52nd-minute effort from Villa midfielder Fabian Delph struck the inside of the right-hand post and rolled along the line. The Gunners were booed off after they lost 3-1 at home to an industrious Villa side, who were helped somewhat by a controversial second-half penalty which was swiftly followed by the dismissal of defender Laurent Koscielny for a second yellow card. Given the criticism for failing to land any major summer transfer targets despite having millions in the bank, it was hardly the ideal warm-up ahead of Tuesday night’s first leg of a crucial Champions League play-off against Fenerbahce at the intimidating Sukru Saracoglu stadium – where Arsenal could well be without defenders Kieran Gibbs and Bacary Sagna as well as England midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, who all went off on Saturday. Wenger, though, challenged his players to show their strength of character and produce the required response in Istanbul. “The next game becomes very important when you come out of a game like that,” the Arsenal manager said. “You must not let the disappointment gain in the spirit of the players “The resolute attitude we had against Villa we have to keep and bounce back on Wednesday, that is what it is about.” Midfielder Jack Wilshere accepts there can be no dwelling on the disappointment of yesterday’s capitulation if Arsenal are to stay on course for the lucrative group stages of the Champions League. “We are not happy, we have got to look at ourselves,” the England international said on BBC Sport. “We have got a big qualifier coming up and there can be no mistakes now – we have got to push on. “We have got to pick ourselves up. We need to put in better performances and win games.” Manager Arsene Wenger maintains his bruised Arsenal squad cannot afford to feel sorry for themselves if they are to bounce back from a nightmare opening day defeat by Aston Villa and keep alive their Champions League dream in Turkey next week.last_img read more

Sports visualisations: A better alternative to videos?

first_img Share Jakub Myszkorowski, CCO at STATSCORE, compares the “smooth and enjoyable” experience of watching sports video games on a streaming portal to the reality of watching live football. Can sports visualisations really replace the real thing? Okay, so I know the title could be seen as a little controversial, perhaps even annoying, but before you start hitting empty cans on my head let me defend my case. Do not ‘boo’ me yet, fellas! In my opinion, animations can really take over our minds and let us experience the sport in a better way. How? Let me explain. Have you ever used Twitch or any other PC games’ streaming portal to watch talented youngsters playing one of the sports games? You had probably tried playing the same game on your own and… well it did not end up going so well. When you wanted to pass you found yourself producing a high cross and while you tried to make Zinedine Zidane’s signature move – “the 360 roulette” – you just gave the ball to the opponent. Yeah, embarrassing as hell! Now you see these kids playing and they can create magic that the world has never seen! Everything goes so smooth and enjoyable that you think: ‘Well, let’s postpone the next appointment and just watch how this one game will end.’ 10 games later, you are still there happy as you were young again. Then compare this experience to watching real football. And, well, the reality seems to suck a little bit. doesn’t it? You see not so great teams playing a not so fast style at a less than impressive technical level. Life tries to match the video games which have been inspired by it, but it is losing in a way akin to a pub team facing one of the pro teams. And yet this is the world we have created. If you can imagine all of these things above, why would you argue that showing the videos from the sports – especially from the lower and less popular competitions – can still make a better offer for the viewers than showing them the same game with fully animated display?Indeed, a fully animated display where the poor quality video of poor quality sportsmen is replaced with arousing and well-shaped 2D animation? Think about it this way – how about turning a grey day of sports into a sunny fiesta? You might still ask: but why? Why change something which is real and exists into something that is… well, artificial and has to be created? The answer is simple, even if it could still sound a little bit controversial. Firstly, because virtual sports (as a whole) gets more and more people to follow. Not only because of the plot behind the rivalry, but mainly thanks to the way the games are shown. Whether you like it or not, it looks beautiful. Perhaps more importantly, your generation Z users and the next ones have shown that they choose virtual over reality. Let’s skip on the judgement tone here and not discuss if this is right or wrong. Just treat it as a fact and think of the implications it has for your business.Secondly, the world of live sports animations doesn’t have to be created as… well, we have already done it at STATSCORE. Years ago we sat, drank a sea of coffee and came up with what we believed at that time would be the future of presenting sports events for online betting. Fast forward back to 2019, and we see that we were damn right about it. Ever since 2011, we have been developing our LivematchPro live sports widgets that now display 17 sports with dedicated animations and live players’ stats for every single incident of each game. Why you would seek anything more than something that is right there in your hand and can boost your income from live bets like a tsunami? Just dig in into the world of tomorrow and be a little more virtual than you are used to.

A December 2016 majority decision loss to Joseph Parker marks Ruiz’ sole loss, although many boxing pundits believe the “Destroyer” did enough to have his hand raised in victory that night.Anthony Joshua career recordAnthony Joshua hauls a 22-1 record (21 KOs) into the Diriyah Arena in Saudi Arabia to take his crack at redemption. The signature victory on the 30-year-old’s pro ledger is a thrilling 11th-round TKO of Wladimir Klitschko at Wembley Stadium in London back in April 2017. The victory made the 2012 Olympic gold medalist the unified world heavyweight champion. He went on to defend that crown against the likes of Carlos Takam, Joseph Parker and Alexander Povetkin, before losing it to Ruiz at Madison Square Garden on June 1. Avenging that loss with a win over Ruiz would be the former world champion’s greatest ring feat yet.

“The night before the Seventh we were in the lobby until four in the morning”

first_img“My favorite moment at Real Madrid would be the victory of the Seventh” Favorite moment at Real Madrid: “I will never forget that night (after the Seventh). Then we headed to the Plaza de Cibeles. The streets were flooded with hundreds of thousands of people, dressed in their white shirts and scarves, singing and celebrating. If I had to choose my favorite moment of my years at Real Madrid, it would be that triumph “.The galactics: “You would come to the locker room, sit down, look around and see the winner of the Ballon d’Or, the player of the year in Spain, Pichichi, the best goalkeeper in the world. Being part of that environment was very special. Sometimes, I sat and thought: “Look where you came from and look where you are now. “ I was proud. “White late afternoon: “My last game at the club was on June 17, 2007. We received Mallorca at the Bernabéu, on the last day of the season, and we were tied on points with Barcelona, ​​who faced Gimnàstic. If we both won, we We knew we would keep the title, thanks to the direct confrontations against Barça. We started losing, 0-1 from early, but in the second half we went back and won 3-1. It was an incredible victory. “ Arrival at Real Madrid: “I went to Cibeles, Cibeles is one of the most iconic places. But for football fans, it carries an extra meaning. Cibeles is the place where Real Madrid (and also the Spanish National Team) meets to celebrate their titles.”Confinement: “I can’t go to work. In the last month I have left my house twice, and that was to go to the supermarket. Staying home all day is making me walk on the walls. But at the moment, it is the right thing to do and what to do. I could not recognize my city. The streets are completely empty. I have never seen Madrid like this. “ The night before the Seventh: “We had suffered in the League that season. Juve was in the final for the third consecutive year. We arrived at the game without being the favorites. The night before the final, none of us could sleep. Normally we went to bed at 10 o’clock night, but that night we were sitting in the lobby at four in the morning, telling each other stories. We were not afraid, but we did have a lot of respect for Juventus. “Final against Juventus: “We did very well in that final. Juve had many chances, but we won 1-0. Not only did we win that game with our quality, but we also did it with our motivation. We loved him more than they did.” Roberto Carlos arrived at Real Madrid in 1996, by the hand of the recently deceased Lorenzo Sanz to join the Fabio Capello team. He left in 2007, after being one more member of the Madrid of ‘Los Galacticos’. He is now director of Institutional Relations of the white entity. The Brazilian winger reviews in first person to The Players’ Tribune some aspects of those years and how day to day of the state of alarm. His story: ‘The Good Life’. “I was proud to belong to Los Galacticos” Lorenzo Sanz: “He was the man who brought me to the club. Only the memory of Lorenzo already makes me smile. Although he was a president, above all things he was an amateur. She lived for Real Madrid. When we tied or lost, it left us alone. But when we won titles, he was the first to hug us. He was like a father to us. I have never called Lorenzo Sanz, and I have never tried it. For me he was always President, or Pressure“Debut of white: “I remember the first time I played at the Bernabéu, in front of 80,000 people. I was like … ‘Ehm, what am I doing here? Now what happens if I make a mistake?’It was scary! But it was also one of the best days of my life. “ “Debut at the Bernabéu, in front of 80,000 people. It was awesome!
