The Cargo Movers also scored six points on blocks in that set alone.ADVERTISEMENT Steam emission over Taal’s main crater ‘steady’ for past 24 hours MOST READ Brian Heruela arrival bolsters Phoenix backcourt, defense F2 Logistics.

That’s the only way I’m going to find the best performance, the best way to improve quickly but with common sense — not looking at certain players, looking at every player.”Emery has been tasked with returning Arsenal to trophy-winning ways and the Champions League, after they finished sixth in the Premier League last season.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Arsenal’s Alex Iwobi is staying put for the post-Arsene Wenger era on a reported five-year deal, according to his new manager © AFP/File / Alexander NEMENOVSINGAPORE, Singapore, Jul 27 – Arsenal boss Unai Emery on Friday said Nigeria’s Alex Iwobi was set to sign a new deal, in a boost to his efforts to fire the Gunners back to the big time.Emery has been busy in the transfer market in his first weeks in charge but he said Iwobi, 22, was staying put for the post-Arsene Wenger era — on a reported five-year deal.last_img read more

first_imgRonald de Boer has confirmed to talkSPORT that his brother, Frank de Boer, is close to being appointed the new manager of Crystal Palace.The Eagles are searching for their next boss following the surprise resignation of Sam Allardyce at the end of last season, having just successfully secured the club’s Premier League status.It was believed there were a number of coaches on the club’s shortlist, but recent reports in Holland have suggested De Boer is in pole position to take over at Selhurst Park.READ MORE: Has the Eagle LANDED? Frank de Boer closes in on Crystal Palace job And Ronald has revealed his younger twin brother Frank – formerly manager of Ajax and inter Milan – is in talks with the London club.Speaking to the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast, the former Barcelona, Rangers and Netherlands star said: “Hopefully they round things up soon. Frank is very excited, of course.“It’s the biggest league – everybody knows it, everybody’s watching the Premier League.“You can do really something if you have the chance, because there is money involved and you can buy players. It’s an interesting league to see what you’re capable of as a manager.“I know they are talking and I think it’s just about little terms with the coaching staff etc. I don’t see any problem, but of course it’s not for me to say if it’s a done deal or not.”If De Boer gets the job, he would become Crystal Palace’s eighth manager in seven years.The 47-year-old left his last job at Inter Milan in November – having been in charge for only 14 matches – after he was unable to produce the consistency which saw him deliver the Eredivisie title for Ajax over four consecutive seasons.But Ronald believes his brother can make an impact on the English top flight, adding: “Frank has always stood for his football to be attractive.“He likes teams to be pressing high up and make sure that the ball most of the time stays on the ground, to hopefully have the ball quickly in the possession to try to score.“He will have to get to know the players and what kind of system will fit those players, so it is important he gets a good run, like a six-week pre-season because [after] you can then know the players better.”Listen to talkSPORT’s interview with Ronald de Boer IN FULL above!last_img read more


first_imgA brave showing by St Eunans simply wasn’t enough to see them progress in the Ulster Club Championship against Crossmaglen Rangers at the Athletic Grounds.The Letterkenny side were always on the backfoot after the Armagh champions got off to an early lead and eventually lost 3-11 to 1-7.An early Kyle Carragher goal for Crossmaglen didn’t help Eunans cause. However they managed to keep in touch with some fine points from Conal Dunne and Mark McGowan to leave Crossmaglen 1-6 to 0-4 ahead at half-time.Big John Haran gave Eunans huge hope when he rattled the net just after the restart.However that hope was dashed when free-kick ace Mark McGowan was red-carded just after that.And sensing that Eunans were wounded, Crossmaglen rubbed salt in the wounds as Aaron Kernan netted again for the Armagh team. The evergreen Oisin McConville made it 2-10 to 1-5 as the Glen began to turn the screw.Indeed but for a point blank save from JP Clarke, Eunans could have then found themselves even further behind.That fear became a reality when Paul Grant forced Clarke to pick the ball out of his net for a third time to make it 3-11 to 1-6 for Crossmaglen.Crossmaglen (Armagh) will now play Errigal Ciaran (Tyrone) in the semi-final.ST EUNAN’S OUTCLASSED BY ALL-IRELAND CHAMPIONS CROSSMAGLEN was last modified: November 11th, 2012 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:ST EUNAN’S OUTCLASSED BY ALL-IRELAND CHAMPIONS CROSSMAGLENlast_img read more
