For all that is positive about Tottenham, for all that they are about to move into an exciting new stadium and are blessed with a crop of highly promising young players, their away record against big sides has become an issue. It’s a problem that predates Mauricio Pochettino – Spurs have now won just four of their last 87 away games against Manchester United, Arsenal and Liverpool – but one that he seems a long way from resolving: although this was his first league defeat to Arsenal, he has now won just one of 18 away games against other top-six sides. Women's Nike Dallas Cowboys #55 Stephen Paea White Vapor Untouchable Limited Player NFL JerseyThere were mitigating factors here – the fact that neither Harry Kane nor Mousa Dembélé looked fully fit and that Harry Winks wasn’t able to start, plus marginal refereeing calls on both Arsenal goals – but there always are. Pochettino, as he had to, mounted a defence, pointing out that other top-six sides also have problems in away games against the elite, but this was a game settled in final half hour of the first half as Arsenal produced one of the displays of ferocity and discipline of which they are infrequently capable and which they have recently reserved for big games in the FA Cup. When they can press as well as this, you wonder why they don’t do it all the time. Once they had gone 2-0 down, Tottenham were forced on the offensive and Paul Martin Jersey could easily have leaked more on the counter as the pace of Alexis Sánchez and Alexandre Lacazette was unleashed. And for all Pochettino claimed his side had been on top until they were undone by the referee Mike Dean, that was not how it seemed. The focus on refereeing decisions often ignores the fact that they, just as much as defensive errors, are often the result of pressure. Tottenham’s problems could be traced to the back of midfield, where the pairing of Dembélé and Moussa Sissoko offered muscularity but not control. They were an oddly immobile Patrik Laine Jersey pairing, both of body and mind, clearly rattled by the pressure they found themselves under. Again and again in the first half, Arsenal players found themselves with time to measure passes through the Spurs defence, leading to the Héctor Bellerín cross that Lacazette just failed to touch in and then the second goal. It’s hardly a secret that Sissoko is a player who tends not to relish the rough and tumble of a derby. This was the first game he had started for Tottenham against Arsenal, but in 14 previous starts in derbies, seven for Newcastle against Sunderland and seven for Toulouse against Bordeaux, he had a record of won one, drawn one, lost 12. Here he contributed to Tottenham seeming oddly short in an area in which Arsenal are often fallible, in central areas just in front of the back-line. Statistics don’t really explain the issue which is largely positional, but Sissoko won the ball back only once in the game, whether by tackle or interception, – very low for a holding midfielder whose side were under such pressure. The introduction of Winks just after the hour made a significant improvement: he imposed himself far more than either of the other holding players, to the extent that he had 48 touches in his 29 minutes in the pitch, as opposed to Dembélé’s 63 in 61 and Sissoko’s 67 in the whole game. That lack of a platform – and perhaps Kane’s lack of effectiveness – had a knock-on effect further up the pitch. Dele Alli, who had also missed the England friendlies with injury, may not have been at his sharpest, but he was a largely peripheral figure anyway until being booked for a late lunge on Granit Xhaka. Neither he nor Christian Eriksen were able to muster passing accuracy above 72%. The lop-sided triangle in midfield, whether in a 4-2-3-1-cum-4-3-3 or a 3-4-2-1-cum-3-5-2, has been one of Spurs’ great strengths; here, against all expectation, it failed to function. Perhaps it is just a learning experience. Perhaps a young side feeling its way to Womens Jose Reyes Jersey the next level will always have setbacks like this. The prognosis for Tottenham remains generally positive. But, as Arsenal could tell them, sooner or later there’s a need for potential to be transformed into something concrete otherwise it withers away. In this game, perhaps, Pochettino was right. Perhaps Tottenham were largely unfortunate, both with decisions and issues of fitness. But the wider pattern is clear: Spurs’s away record against top-six sides is dismal and until it improves the frustration will endure. Already any thought of a serious league challenge this season has all but gone. Their three remaining league games against other members of the big six, the next of them at Manchester City in a month, will reveal a lot about how sustainable their progress really is.,13481

If the ball goes on the left foot then you just try it,” said a typically relaxed Kevin De Bruyne on Saturday evening. “Sometimes it comes off and sometimes it doesn’t. It’s the same with the outside, the inside. It helps if you can do different types of things, sometimes you might put spin on it. But I’m not scared to shoot with my left foot, obviously.” Women's Bradley McDougald Limited Pink Nike Jersey: NFL Seattle Seahawks #30 Rush FashionObviously. The Belgian’s left foot decided this match; his shot from outside the Leicester City area hitting the roof of Kasper Schmeichel’s net at a speed that just did not seem feasible. It was the sort of goal that causes cheeks to puff out in astonishment and increasingly what people are hoping to see when they watch Manchester City play. Yes your team might get a chasing but there will be moments of virtuosity you won’t forget. When De Bruyne was substituted in the 89th minute, he was applauded from all sides of the King Power Stadium. For a player who increasingly looks like a superstar, De Bruyne hardly acts like one. It’s not like he is modest, but he is grounded, and so matter-of-fact as to be both endearing and just a little disappointing. There’s no Ibra-esque talk of lions and immortality, just a clear-eyed focus on process and practice. That, of course, is the way Pep Guardiola likes it. “It’s freedom but everybody has their position‚” De Bruyne said of the gameplan. “I know when Kyle [Walker] is going up and Raheem [Sterling] is going inside I have to take care of the winger for the counter. If I am more up then Kyle is going to stay and Raheem is going to be outside. It’s fluidity in the team but knowing what you need to do at the right time. “We just have to try and see where the spaces are and then take advantage of it. Every game is going to give us something else and probably today was more on the left but I think Raheem came more inside as a result and the first goal he created was very good.” Indeed it was. Sterling made the opener just before half-time with a piece of play that was David Silva-like. Playing a one-two with De Bruyne, the England man then dinked a ball between centre-half and full-back that completely turned the Leicester defence. Breaking beyond that back-line with a Sterling-esque dash was Silva. He Reggie Nelson Jersey cut the ball across goal for Gabriel Jesus, who simply couldn’t miss. City have the same number of points after 12 games, 34, as Roberto Mancini’s title-winning side of 2011-12. They have a better goal difference, by virtue of conceding fewer goals. But the talk is already of a new bar being set for the league in terms of style of play and questions are being asked as to whether City can now go the entire season unbeaten (for the record, Arsenal’s Invincibles Cam Fowler Jersey had 30 points at this stage). The fluidity and systematic understanding throughout Guardiola’s team lends credibility to such talk. As does the fact that City have one of the most expensive squads in the history of the game. The City manager fumed at losing John Stones to a hamstring strain on the half hour. It was an injury he blamed on the defender playing 90 minutes in both of England’s recent friendlies. Guardiola will now look to recruit a new defender in January but, for all of that, the substitute Eliaquim Mangala did a good job of standing in. The Frenchman, making only his second league appearance of the season, cost the club £32m three seasons ago. Vincent Kompany also made his return to the side, though in his case after injury (sustained on international duty, which again drew Guardiola’s ire). The Belgian was lucky not to be sent off in just the third minute when his tackle brought down Jamie Vardy. Claude Puel felt it was the game’s crucial moment, Kompany felt Stones was providing adequate cover to prevent a goalscoring opportunity. “It was a good run from Vardy. I thought: ‘I’ll just use my joker now,’” Kompany said. The club captain may not be as vital to Jose Altuve Jersey his team’s prospects as he once was, but the experience he has accrued in winning two Premier League trophies should prove invaluable over the coming months. Asked whether this team are playing the best football he has seen in his nine years at the club, Kompany said: “Maybe at this moment, but I want to remain on the cautious side, because we don’t have any silverware to show for it. At the moment we haven’t done anything special, we’ve just put ourselves in a good position to go and do something great.”

Lee Dixon tells an eye-opening story in the film 89 about being pinned up against the wall of the dressing room by his own team‑mates before his first north London derby. He was warned, in no uncertain terms, that if he did not perform in this game of all games he would be in trouble. It is hard to imagine that in the modern game such threats would be part of a pre-match routine, but the words said within the Arsenal camp last week to gee them up for the visit of Tottenham Hotspur certainly had a motivating effect. Youth Nike Cleveland Browns #65 Larry Ogunjobi Orange Alternate Vapor Untouchable Elite Player NFL JerseyIn the intensity of their play, in their body language, this was a different kind of Indianapolis Colts Womens Jersey Arsenal to the one that has a tendency to freeze up and feel the fear creeping in during high-pressure games. They seemed to relish Dexter McCoil Authentic Jerseythe situation. Héctor Bellerín let out some kind of primal roar as he headed down the tunnel at half-time in recognition of a two-goal lead his team would not relinquish. Mesut Özil at one point hoiked an agricultural clearance 40 yards straight up into the air – as un-Özil-esque a technique as you could ever imagine – to clamourous acclaim. Alexis Sánchez rediscovered his appetite for careering around the pitch chasing every cause going. Youth Majestic San Diego Padres #37 Travis Wood Replica Brown Alternate Cool Base MLB JerseyOne of the key figures in galvanising Arsenal was an unexpected one. Shkodran Mustafi has had a mixed experience since joining the club in the summer of 2016. Some promising performances, some ropey ones, spells out injured, suggestions the German might even move on after one so-so season. Mustafi Justin Faulk Authentic Jersey had been absent for seven weeks before being recalled to the three-man defensive unit that formed the platform for Arsenal to take on a Spurs side generally billed as favourites pre-match. He tackled a vital game as if it mattered to every fibre of his being. Afterwards he contemplated the question that foreign players might not be perceived as caring about a derby as much as locally born counterparts. His no-nonsense reply suggested the old fashioned pin-your-team-mate-against-the-wall routine might chime with his wholehearted personality. “That’s you guys thinking it,” he said. “As always – Arsenal is dead. Arsenal is not coming back. It’s always the same. It’s about what the team is thinking and feeling. We keep saying it that we are always alive, we always believe in ourselves, we always try to give everything on the pitch. Obviously when it comes to games like this you have to show character. We showed a great character, when we had the ball but also when we didn’t have it.” Their efforts without the ball were cranked up and what a difference that made as a foundation for a strong performance. When they got the benefit of some tight calls by the officials they were in the mood to make the most of it. Arsène Wenger was particularly complimentary about Mustafi’s influence, vocally as well as his impact reading the game with obvious determination at both ends of the pitch. “He’s a leader, he’s a motivator,” the manager said. The unit, with Mustafi alongside Laurent Koscielny and Nacho Monreal, snuffed out the attack of Harry Kane, Dele Alli and Christian Eriksen, and Wenger liked the leadership that came from the back. “Sometimes one word – ‘go a bit more wide, go a bit more left, drop off’ – makes a complete difference. Because it’s like you have a photo of a team when you play at the back.” Mustafi thinks Arsenal must strive to hit those levels more regularly. “It’s about being consistent. That’s our goal every day in training because you are only as good as your last game. If you win today and lose next weekend you are back where you were.” Mustafi’s straight-talking was evident as he responded to queries about how close he came to leaving Arsenal during the summer. “You [reporters] like to get the shit, the biggest shit. That’s your job,” he said. “People outside, talking and thinking that they know everything. What happens in the changing room is the real thing. “I don’t understand why people just talk about things they cannot know about. If I have been talking to clubs or if I haven’t, it’s only rumours. Obviously there are so many newspapers, they need something to write because it’s boring if the paper is empty.”

At times it was difficult to know whether Tony Pulis was mounting a robust defence of his record, or just determined to get in a few pre-emptive strikes Karl-Anthony Towns Youth jersey in the event he loses his job at West Bromwich Albion and is restricted to a carefully-worded statement that denies him the chance to say what he really thinks about his achievements at the club. Women's Marcus Semien Replica Grey Majestic Jersey: MLB Oakland Athletics #10 Road Cool BaseEither way, Pulis clearly recognises the end of his near three-year reign could be close after a wretched run that has delivered only two victories from the past 20 league games, leaving West Brom one place above the teams in the relegation zone and prompting supporters to turn on him during the 1-0 defeat at Huddersfield Town before the international break. The feeling within The Hawthorns is that Pulis could be on the brink if there is more of the same disquiet – in particular in the stands – at home against Chelsea on Saturday, when Guochuan Lai, the club’s owner, will be looking on from the directors’ box after arriving from China for a visit that was scheduled six weeks ago but now feels rather timely. Lai will lean heavily on John Williams, West Brom’s experienced chairman, when it comes to any decision, with Pulis honest enough to admit that sacking him would not be unfair on the back of his worst run of results for 13 years. From Pulis’s perspective, however, there is a broader picture and, armed with a few facts and figures, the 59-year-old set about dealing with the criticism that has come his way. “If I left tomorrow I’d put my record on the table and put it in front of anybody and see what they think of what I’ve done here in three years,” Pulis said. “Yes, we’re on a bad run and everything is determined by the next game – no one ever Authentic Nick Fairley Jersey looks back and sees there was Samaras, Varela,, Gamboa – 11 players were bought that summer [before he took over mid-season] and not one made a profit. I inherited those players and we finished 13th that year.” There was more where that came from. “Last season was only the third time in history this club has finished 10th in the Premier League. It’s only the second time since 1967 this club has finished the top Midlands club. “We’ve played kids in this group since I’ve come in. They’ve made 89 appearances, the youngsters, and again no one else has done that. The record goes on and on and on. “I understand. The more you give, the more people want. We brought in a lot of good players, players we hoped would gel straight away, and we’ve been unfortunate. [Nacer] Chadli, [James] Morrison and [Oliver] Burke are all players who can create and score, and we’ve not had them. Like every team, Authentic Nick O'Leary Jersey if you don’t have your best players, especially at the top end of the pitch, you’re going to struggle. “People say the football’s been boring. The last two games at The Hawthorns have seen nine goals scored. Look at the league, there are four or five teams who have scored fewer goals than us. And one of those is my hometown club Bournemouth, and everyone tells me what great football Bournemouth play and Eddie’s done a fantastic job down there.” Pulis went on to claim “expectations have gone through the roof” as he rowed back as far as 2005, when Bryan Robson pulled off what became known as the great escape, to make another point. “This club has fought relegation battles to the last days. They’ve had supporters carrying managers round the pitch on the last game of the season because of results going for them and kept them up. In the three years I’ve been here this club has been nowhere near getting relegated.”

Mauricio Pochettino has lavished praise on Arsène Wenger before the first north London derby of the season, describing his counterpart at Arsenal as a “very special manager” and an “innovator”, and said he would like to match the Frenchman’s longevity by spending “20 years at Tottenham”. Men's Nike Denver Broncos #22 C.J. Anderson Elite Orange Rush Vapor Untouchable NFL JerseyPochettino and Wenger go Womens Trevor Bauer Jersey head to head at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday with Tottenham three places and four points ahead of their local rivals, having finished above them for the first time in 22 years in the previous campaign. Pochettino is undefeated in six league contests against Arsenal since taking over at in May 2014, but he refuses to believe his team are favourites to win or that Wenger is a busted flush having come under more criticism from his own supporters, as well as outside observers, in recent months. Women's Reebok San Jose Sharks #8 Joe Pavelski Premier Black Pacific Division 2017 All-Star  NHL Jersey“In football history he’s one of the great managers, the same level as [Sir Alex] Ferguson,” Pochettino said. “He will always be a special manager. To keep motivation more than three years is difficult. Five years, you must be very good, very good if you’re Joe Carter Womens Jersey 10 years. When you talk about 20 years it’s amazing. Everyone who talks about him needs to show respect. Derek Rivers Jersey Some days you’re good, some days not so good. But [show] respect. “Wenger was an innovator, ahead of everyone, like Ferguson. It’s difficult to innovate but you must try to create a project under your ideas and philosophies to take you ahead of other clubs. They were ahead. That’s why my respect and admiration is high.” Asked if his kind words for Wenger were part of a pre-match strategy aimed at softening up the 68-year-old, Pochettino replied: “I tell the truth to you. Why show different emotion if you don’t believe that? I need to be honest and fair. He is my enemy because Todd Gurley Jersey he is Arsenal manager but he is my colleague too. What he is doing at Arsenal and as a manager – I would like to be like him one day; 20 years at Tottenham.” That will come as great news to Spurs supporters and the club’s hierarchy given the manner in which Pochettino has enhanced the team since arriving from Southampton. Tottenham have secured third- and second-place finishes in the Premier League under the Argentinian and this season secured progression to the knockout stages of the Champions League with two group games to spare and having beaten Real Madrid 3-1. Pochettino signed a new five-and-a-half-year deal in May and recently said he would sign a 15-year contract if it were offered to him by the chairman, Daniel Levy, having been linked with a move to, among others, Manchester United. The 45-year-old’s immediate focus, however, is on securing Spurs’ first win at the Emirates since a 3-2 triumph in November 2010, when Harry Redknapp was manager. Their chances have been boosted by the return to first-team training on Thursday of Harry Kane, Dele Alli and Harry Winks, all of whom missed England’s recent friendlies against Germany and Brazil because of knee, hamstring and ankle injuries respectively. Hugo Lloris also returned to training having missed the 1-0 victory over Crystal Palace before the international break with a groin strain. “I hope we can count on them for the game,” said Pochettino. “We need to decide between the medical staff, sports science staff and us. But I am happy. If they cannot play on Saturday I’m sure they’re close for Tuesday [a Champions League match against Borussia Dortmund] or next weekend [a Premier League match against West Bromwich Albion].” Tottenham have, however, suffered an injury setback with the news that Toby Alderweireld could be out until the new year with the hamstring injury he sustained in the victory over Real.

Alberto Moreno is 100% back” Jürgen Klopp said this summer and you can see it. You can hear it, too, with every joke, every giggle, every time he bursts out laughing. After a year he describes as “very bad”, in which there were times he felt “down” and only his baby daughter, Carla, could be guaranteed to coax a smile from him, life in Liverpool is good again. As for mornings at Melwood, they are even better. There are reasons to be cheerful and he is cheerful, all right. Not least because he has one fewer problem now. Well, two. Men's Adidas New Orleans Pelicans #23 Anthony Davis Swingman Navy Blue Resonate Fashion NBA JerseyThe best thing about being back is not the sense of satisfaction in overcoming, the feeling of redemption, or the sound of silence, critics falling quiet; it is not the return to the Champions League or to the Spain squad after three and a half years, although he was delighted to take an “unexpected” call. It is not even the proud return home, when Liverpool play Sevilla in the Champions League on Tuesday, Moreno heading back to a place that “smells different”, the boy from here doing well over there. Now, at least; now, at last. No, he smiles: it’s that Sadio Mané and Mohamed Salah are someone else’s problem. Someone like Sevilla. Mention their names and, more than words, Moreno makes noises. “Pfff,” “Ooh.” “Wow.” “I wouldn’t want to face Mané and Salah,” he says, puffing out his cheeks. “It must be … pfff.” You would think he speaks from daily experience, forced to face them each morning, but here is the rub, another reason why the benefits of being back go beyond match day. “No,” he grins, “when the manager picks teams, I’m usually with them. The best thing about starting this season is playing on their side.” And with that, Moreno falls about again. He is joking but, for the man who admits reaching a point where he feared whatever he did he would be “useless”, just how much things have changed, and how fast, has come into focus lately. Last week he returned to the Spain squad, the smile spread across his face as he described playing in Russia on Tuesday as “like making my debut all over again”. On Tuesday, he returns to the Sánchez Pizjuán, where it all began and where his boyhood hero plays. He still has a photo of himself, aged 11, alongside Jesús Navas. This time, he will be up against him. It is tempting to see symbolism in the trip to the Pizjuán, to see his return there representing his return, full stop: an opportunity to close the circle against the team he faced the night when many considered his Liverpool career was over. Moreno won the Europa League with Sevilla in 2014. In 2016 he lost the Europa League final against Sevilla – and for some it really was him that lost it. The verdict after a 1-0 half-time lead became a 3-1 defeat was in: guilty. Jamie Carragher deleted a tweet that pleaded with Liverpool to “sign a fucking left-back”, but not before thousands had seen it. Mark Lawrenson said bluntly: “He can’t defend.” One match report called Authentic Corey Brewer Jersey him “brainless”, giving him two out of 10; another described him as “hopeless”; it was a “horror show” said a third. The reactions might have been exaggerated but when a BBC report stated: “He’ll surely be replaced,” they were not exactly going out on a limb. He did not leave but he did Bryan Bulaga Jersey not play, either. James Milner played at left-back, a converted midfielder trusted more, and in the whole of last season Moreno started two league games. Then, in the summer, Liverpool signed Andy Robertson from Hull. But it was not the end; that signing might have sparked something in Moreno but he had already sought to turn his situation around. He describes himself as a fighter and says he “loves Liverpool”; he did not want to go and he did not give up. “I went to see Klopp a few times to ask what I could do and he said: ‘Alberto, you’re doing well but I can’t change.’ At the end of the season I asked myself: ‘Alberto, what can you change? What can you do?’” Having resisted, held on, the answer, as it turned out, was for the one-time winger who wanted to emulate Diego Capel, Antonio Puerta and Jesús Navas to rebel against his nature. Something shifted; this summer a bid from Napoli was rejected. In early August, Klopp said pre-season had brought “new players” and Moreno was one of them. Soon it seemed he was right: he has started nine league games and all six matches in Europe, becoming one of Liverpool’s most consistent performers. Had he really been a new player, he would surely be talked about as a shrewd signing. Meet him and he is the same as ever; watch him and he is not. By his admission, he has changed; by his own hand, too – although he is swift to credit those around him, from family to team‑mates, coaching staff to the club’s nutritionist, Mona Nemmer, who has even found a place for a taste of Seville on Merseyside.

A former Argentinian football official killed himself just hours after he was Authentic Mike Fisher Jersey accused of taking bribes by a witness in the New York corruption trial examining endemic misconduct at world football’s governing body, Fifa. Men's Nike Cincinnati Bengals #42 Clayton Fejedelem Elite Orange Alternate NFL JerseyJorge Delhon, 52, a lawyer who worked for Argentina’s Football for All, a government programme that holds the broadcast rights to domestic football in the country, was accused of accepting annual $500,000 (£380,000) bribes from 2011 to 2014. Women's Mark McGwire Replica Green Majestic Jersey: MLB Oakland Athletics #25 Alternate Cool BaseThe sworn allegations were made by Alejandro Burzaco, an influential former sports marketing executive, who has already pleaded guilty to corruption charges and has been assisting US authorities in the sprawling investigation into Fifa. Burzaco claimed to have agreed the bribes with Delhon and another Argentinian Authentic Mike Fisher Jersey official to receive broadcast rights to domestic club competitions. Shortly after he made the allegations in court on Tuesday, police in Buenos Aires announced that Delhon had killed himself. The trial of three former South American football executives continued on Wednesday. As Burzaco prepared to give a second day of testimony, he broke down in tears on the witness stand and was escorted from the courtroom. Lawyers for Juan Ángel Napout, the Paraguayan former president of South American football’s governing body Conmebol, accused someone in the courtroom of “staring down” the former executive. Napout, Manuel Burga, the former head of the Peruvian football association, and José Maria Marin, the head of Brazil’s football confederation, all deny multiple counts of racketeering, wire fraud and money laundering. As Wednesday’s proceedings commenced, Burzaco to give details of how he orchestrated multi-million dollar bribe payments to obtain the exclusive marketing rights to the Copa America tournament for company, Datisa, created to house a group of rival sports marketing corporations, including Burzaco’s own Torneos y Competencias. Burzaco said he had agreed Authentic Mike Fisher Jersey to pay $16.5m to a group of senior Conmebol officials to secure the rights. The deal allowed Datisa the rights to the 2015 tournament and the next two editions of the event. The $16.5m bribe payment would be repeated for the next two Copa Americas, and the contract would allow Datisa first refusal for rights in the future. The Argentinian national, who turned himself in Authentic Mike Fisher Jerseyto authorities weeks after a May 2015 morning raid on a hotel in Zurich unveiled the federal investigation into Fifa, said the Copa America contract was finalised during a trip to London in May 2013. Burzaco said he had travelled to the UK for the Champions League final, which was held at Wembley Stadium, and met with a number of Conmebol officials at venues including the Waldorf Hilton hotel and a restaurant in Mayfair, in an attempt to get their signatures for the new contract. Burzaco recalled the details of one meeting at the Waldorf with Marin and Marco Polo Del Nero, a Fifa executive and now the current president of the Brazilian football confederation. The pair, who were due to receive $3m in bribes for the first Copa America, were angry they had not yet been paid a separate $2m annual bribe for the rights to another South American club tournament, the Copa Libertadores. The bribes, Burzaco said were “normally paid in the first six months of the year” but had not yet reached the two officials.

The minarets of Red Square are finally visible on the horizon after the longest, windiest qualifying road in World Cup history concluded in Sydney on Wednesday night. Nike Doug Martin Women's Pink Limited Jersey: #22 NFL Tampa Bay Buccaneers Rush FashionBookended by goals from the boot of Mile Jedinak, it’s not been the prettiest 29 months of qualification football, but it has at least proved effective. Back in June 2015 Australia left Kyrgyzstan with a 2-1 victory, the first of 22 matches that have taken the Socceroos to all corners of Asia, around Australia, and finally across the Pacific and back. Much of this has been hard-going, Authentic David Robertson Jersey for players, coaches and fans alike. Like much of the qualifying campaign, the decider against Honduras was a nervous affair with little for aesthetes admire. For 54 minutes ANZ Stadium David Robertson Youth jersey was a study in anxiety – coaches too agitated to sit down, players too eager to time a tackle, and fans, the poor tormented fans, burned at similar moments in previous sudden death scenarios, waiting expectantly for chances that never came. Then Tom Rogic somewhat accidentally wandered on the run of the match, weaving his way towards the Honduran penalty area with mounting intent. After he was upended and Jedinak’s free-kick deflected beyond Donis Escober the collective celebration captured the mood David Robertson Youth jersey of a nation. When Jedinak made the net bulge with his second and third set-pieces the mood verged towards euphoric. Not the delirious John Aloisi-running-down-the-touchline-waving-his-shirt-around-his-head kind, but a reminder all the same why the 33 and-a-half hours of football to get to that final final whistle were worthwhile. The memories of Uruguay, Iran, Scotland and more, are never far from the memories of Australian football fans. Like the banners in the stands paying tribute to Johnny Warren and Les Murray, reminders why nights like Wednesday can never be taken for granted. While this is job done for Australia, it remains to be seen if Postecoglou still has work to do. The coach was emotional but non-committal when asked about his future after becoming only the second Australian to guide his country to a World Cup finals. “It’s pretty overwhelming to be honest,” he said. “When you’re coaching your own nation the burden of responsibility is even greater. We deserve to be there. These players deserve to be there. They’ve done it the hard way but they got their rewards.” If this was his last game, Postecoglou will bow out after 49 matches on a deserved high. He won the Asian Cup. He navigated the most arduous World Cup qualifying campaign ever devised. Watching players and staff celebrate in the centre of the pitch, showered in green and gold ticker tape, it seemed unthinkable the mastermind of the occasion may not get to experience the fruits of his labour in Russia. It’s such a puzzling situation. These are Postecoglou’s players. This is his team. It’s a group only part way through its progression, embarking on only the fifth World Cup in Australia’s history.

Apocalypse, how? The Italian Football Federation’s president, Carlo Tavecchio, had defined the prospect of missing out on the 2018 World Cup as a disaster of biblical proportions. Now the worst has J. D. Martinez Womens Jerseycome to pass, the Azzurri failing to qualify for the first time in 60 years, after losing their play-off with Sweden. All that remains for a proud football nation is to analyse where it went wrong. Women's Nike Tennessee Titans #59 Wesley Woodyard Limited Light Blue Rush Vapor Untouchable NFL JerseyA partial answer could be found on the pitch at San Siro. Italy dominated Sweden with more than 75% of possession, yet lacked the subtlety to unpick a packed defence: pumping endless crosses into a penalty area where their opponents held a clear height advantage. A lack of nuance in the final third has been an ongoing problem for a team that has scored just three times in its last six competitive fixtures. More revealing scenes, though, were playing out on the bench. Midway through the second half, a member of Italy’s coaching staff asked Daniele De Rossi to warm up. The midfielder reacted angrily, appearing to reply: “Why should I go on? We don’t need a draw, we need a win.” His words were accompanied by a gesture in the direction of Lorenzo Insigne. De Rossi later explain that he was making a broader point about the need for attackers, rather than seeking to single any individual out, yet many will wonder how the Napoli forward could be overlooked by manager Gian Piero Ventura. Insigne is a man in the prime of his career, one who scored 18 league goals from the left wing for Napoli last season and almost reached double-digits for assists as well. He is the only Italian valued at over €100m by the CIES football observatory, and yet never made it on to the pitch on Monday – after making only the briefest of cameos in the first leg. Nobody who has followed Ventura’s career could even be all that surprised. It is not that he underrates Insigne so much as that the manager is extraordinarily rigid in his selection process: a man fixated on square pegs and square holes. Insigne is a wide forward, and Italy were lined up in a 3-5-2. Therefore, there was no space available. Ventura had sought to make room earlier in the qualifying campaign, sending Womens J. D. Martinez Jersey his team out in a and later a 3-4-3. The first formation was made to look wildly naive during a 3-0 thrashing by Spain in Madrid, while the latter yielded only a 1-1 draw at home to Macedonia. It might actually have been player Womens J. D. Martinez Jerseypower that provoked a retreat, with veteran stars arranging a team meeting independent of the coaching staff after the latter result. Reports at the time suggested they were agitating for a return to the more familiar 3-5-2. That formation had been used to great effect by Antonio Conte at Euro 2016, but the truth is that all these numbers become meaningless without a coherent plan. Italy were fluid under the now Chelsea manager, a dynamic shape-shifting collective. Under Ventura, the connections between defence, midfield and attack have all but disappeared. The fact that players felt compelled to meet without him might itself offer evidence – supplemented by De Rossi’s pitchside rebellion – of a lack of faith in his ability to lead them. Ventura’s coaching CV was always a modest one, when compared to his predecessors in the role. The biggest club he ever coached was Torino, whom he took to the Europa League in 2014. In some sense, that was a part of his appeal. Prior to Euro 2016, Conte had always seemed restless as Italy manager – too young and too brilliant not to miss the week-to-week intensity of club football. Ventura was 68 when he took the job, and knew it was likely to be the greatest he ever held. He was perceived to have the right temperament to hang around and bring through the next generation of talent, and for a substantially lower salary, too.

There were less than three minutes on the clock when the Wales supporters started their campaign to keep Chris Coleman on as manager and it quickly became clear that it was going to be the soundtrack of the evening. NFL Nike Youth Jim Brown Orange Alternate Limited Jersey - #32 Cleveland Browns Vapor Untouchable“Chrissy Coleman, we want you to stay” was the message that reverberated from the fans time and again on the manager’s 49th – and potentially last – match in charge of his country. With James Harden Authentic Jersey the stadium only around half full, it was a slightly strange occasion in many respects and finished with Coleman briefly acknowledging the Wales supporters at the final whistle, shortly after Panama had snatched an injury-time equaliser, turning on his heel and heading down the tunnel with no one quite sure whether the 47-year-old will be back in the dugout here again. Coleman confirmed afterwards that talks will continue with the Football Association of Wales over the coming days, but also admitted that he has no idea what the future holds. His contract expires at the end of the month and the feeling is that the two parties are not a million miles apart in their attempts to reach an agreement, yet nothing can be said with any certainty about his James Harden Authentic Jersey position right now. Asked whether he felt emotional during the game, Coleman reflected on the difficult times at the start of his tenure and said: “It’s a funny one because I don’t know what’s going to happen. But a huge, huge thank you. “These are our core fans. These are the fans that in the first 12 to 18 months, they didn’t like me much. But I didn’t mind because they were the only fans that showed up for us – 9,000-10,000 people. I didn’t mind them booing because at least they paid the money to come and support their country and they’re still doing it. “So a huge thank you to them. It was nice they were singing my name and I appreciate that. I hope that’s not going to be the last game. I don’t know, if I’m honest with you. I think I am the man to lead them. “But there’s a bit more to it than that.” A night that started with Coleman providing the Wales supporters with a James Harden Authentic Jersey glimpse into the future by giving full debuts to Chelsea’s Ethan Ampadu, Liverpool’s Ben Woodburn and Sheffield United’s David Brooks, ended with the manager thanking his players in the dressing room for their part in a remarkable journey that peaked with the performances at the European Championship finals last year.
