Bitter appetizer for Gareth Bale

On September 1, 2013, Real Madrid announced that it had reached a transfer agreement with Bale at a world record price of 100.8 million euros (£ 85.1 million). At that time, he was the best player in the Premier League and the Tottenham shirt became cramped with the Welsh star.

After 7 years, Bale returned to his old roof at the age of 31. His luggage was a huge collection of titles and dull years in Madrid. Bale is no longer the best player in the world as before and his speed and skills have been greatly worn away.

After a few days with Real Madrid, Bale finally decided to return to Tottenham to hope to revive his bad career. Returning to the old place can be a beautiful dream for both sides. But it all turned into a terrifying nightmare. Expected a lot, but had to wait until exactly 1 month to recover from injury, Bale had his first appearance for Tottenham. But this 1-month period is insignificant compared to the 7 years and 152 days since he last put on the Rooster’s jersey (May 2013).

And the scene when Bale comes on the field is said to be extremely convenient for him to complete a beautiful dream. Tottenham then led West Ham to 3 goals and the clock was only in the 72nd minute. Coach Jose Mourinho prepared an offer that could not be better for his beloved student.
But perhaps he did not expect this to be a very wrong decision. “The special one” had stabbed the knife with his own hands as well as into Bale’s chest. Just 10 minutes after Bale came on, Tottenham conceded the first goal. 3 minutes later, Rooster had to receive the second goal by midfielder Davinson Sanchez. And the closing tragedy could not be more bitter when Manuel Lanzini scored 3-3 in the 90 ‘+ 4 minute.
Mourinho was dumbfounded outside the field while the Tottenham players did not understand what happened. They led the opponent to 3-0 after only 16 minutes of rolling and lost 3 goals in the last 12 minutes including compensations. After entering the field, Bale proved not to adapt to the play style of Harry Kane and Son Heung-min. This is also understandable because the Welsh striker has only returned to Tottenham for 1 month.

The 31-year-old’s entry into the field accidentally opened the door of hope for West Ham and the visitors had made good use of this. Bale’s defensive involvement was neither as good nor as active as Steven Bergwijn, who came out to make room for him.
Therefore, the two players on the left edge of West Ham, Masuaku and Cresswell, are much more “free” to cross the ball. Balbuena’s goal to shorten the score to 1-3 from a Cresswell cross.
After that, Bale also partly proved his ability with a high-speed breakthrough in the middle of the 4 West Ham players. Unfortunately, this player’s finishing shot was a bit hasty and the ball went out.
Without high pressing pressure, the Tottenham defense reveals big holes. The next 2 goals of the visitors were somewhat fortunate because one was an own goal and the other was a shot from outside the box at the last minute. However, it is undeniable that the problem mainly comes from Tottenham’s ability to defend remotely.

Van Dijk said his sincere words after Liverpool’s defeat

Liverpool had a flourishing 2019/20 season, however, entering this new season, coach Jurgen Klopp’s team was showing certain deviations. Most recently, The Kop had to lose salt in front of a team that only relegated last season, Aston Villa. After that match, Liverpool’s disastrous defense received many criticisms.

Recently, Liverpool’s number one midfielder, Virgil van Dijk, has made a candid statement about this unfortunate “accident”. Share on BBC Sounds, this player said:
I think trying to stay first is the hardest thing.
Everyone wants you to stumble when you’re at the top.
Life is like that, especially in these days. For me, I want to dedicate myself to my retirement and then won’t feel any regrets.

I don’t want any regrets after that, I think it will be the worst feeling you can have. Going forward will be challenging times. We are the champions.
We should enjoy this moment“.
Currently, the Premier League is taking a break to make room for the national teams to join forces, preparing for the upcoming Nations League campaign. Van Dijk was also present with the Dutch national team and tomorrow morning, Orange Tornado will have his first match in a series of international friendly matches against Mexico.

MU set up a series of unforgettable milestones after losing 1-6

The “nail” match of the 4th round of the Premier League suddenly became a nightmare for the Red Devils, since the 28th minute red card of Anthony Martial. Whatever the reason, the fact that MU had to receive a humiliating defeat, accompanied by a series of unforgettable milestones.
Specifically, up to 5 milestones made in this match belong to MU or to MU.
First, this is the third time MU has conceded 6 times in a match at the NHA. 2 times ago in 1996 (Lost to Southampton 6-3) and in 2011 (Lost by Man City 6-1).
Next, this is the first time in 30 years that MU conceded 4 goals after the first half of a match in the highest tournament in England. Even the last time MU had to receive this sad ending (in 1990), the Premier League was not born. (The UK’s top division championship has officially been called the Premier League since 1992).
Since 1972, this is the first time MU has conceded at least 2 goals in all three matches at the beginning of the season. It was in a 1-3 defeat against Crystal Palace, a 4-3 win over Brighton and the latest defeat against Tottenham.

Martial individual also went into MU history as the player who had to receive the earliest red card in a Premier League match (28 minutes)
As for Tottenham, they also have a record when they become the first away team to score 4 goals against MU in the second half of the match. The last time a team did this happened in 1957 and coincidentally it was Tottenham. That year, the London representative fired the Reds 4-3 to complete a dramatic 4-3 victory.
The fourth round of the Premier League also saw another result that people had to mention more, that was Liverpool’s 2-7 defeat against Aston Villa. This match takes place right after the “tennis set” that Tottenham for the Red Devils.
After a round with many special results, the Premier League and a series of European tournaments will take a two-week break to make room for the gathering of national teams.

In the next round (will return on October 17), MU will have a trip to Newcastle’s field – the team is ranked 7 places above them on the Premier League table.

Mourinho: ‘I’d rather do charity than give money to federation’

Coach Mourinho even went straight into the tunnel after the moment Callum Wilson finished putting Hugo Lloris from the penalty spot in the 90 + 6 minute. It is a controversial penalty blow situation from the referee as well as from the VAR team. Many believe that Mourinho will have a lot to complain about after the game.

Finally, the Portuguese strategist spoke up.
“The restricted area is the most important place and we have worked hard to protect it. In the end, we still ran into a controversial situation and lost 2 points. I will not comment on a single statement. But if I have to spend money, I would rather go to charity than spend it for the Federation (FA). As for the ball yesterday, I will not say another word! “.

Mourinho’s statements were recorded by Sky sports after the game. The Tottenham captain refused to talk about the controversial penalty, but did not forget to give the FA’s sarcasm.

In the match where Tottenham should have had 3 points, Mourinho’s team played on their feet and completely took the initiative in front of the visitors.Even before the stoppage-time penalty, Newcastle did not have a significant finish. about Hugo Lloris’s goal.

Finally, the situation of Eric Dier’s hand contact after an aerial dispute with Andy Carroll caused Rooster to receive a penalty. It was a situation where Eric Dier was passive while landing from the air, and the ball touched his hand from behind this player. Before that, Carroll’s offside situation also caused VAR to enter. But in the end the decision was still taken as a penalty for Newcastle.
“I thought about what the players were doing in this match. They did well. It’s just a pity that we couldn’t get more goals because the Newcastle goalkeeper was focused. We keep controlling the game. In the second half, finally the penalty came. It’s a pity that Tottenham could not keep winning “- Coach Mourinho continued to share.
With this draw, Tottenham had 4 points after 3 matches. Temporarily ranked x on the Premier League chart. This week continues to be a busy week with Mourinho’s students as they clash with Chelsea in the League Cup Tuesday morning, and go on to kick off the Europa League play-off on Thursday morning. .

Liverpool won at Chelsea

Sadio Mane shone with a brace for Liverpool, in just four minutes. One came from a sharp coordination situation, a wrong punishment goal by goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga. Two goals were scored when Chelsea played with 10 people, red carded midfielder Andreas Christensen and disqualified at the end of the first half.

Balanced stance until the red card. The first chance came to Liverpool in the 14th minute, from the situation of the ball. Goalkeeper Kepa rushed out unreasonably, overtaken by Salah and stretched. Midfielder Christensen promptly returned to block Firmino’s kick.
On the Chelsea side, striker Timo Werner played aggressively when repeatedly confronted Fabinho – the midfield player in this match. In the 33rd minute, Werner overcame Fabinho to go close to the penalty area. Instead of leaving Marcos Alonso in an empty posture, Werner shot with his left foot to miss the post. If the ball is headed to the goal, goalkeeper Alisson can also catch.
The turning point appeared at the end of the first half. Receiving the ball from home field, captain Jordan Henderson swung up to let Mane down. The ball fell into the space between the two Chelsea midfielders, creating the opportunity to face the goalkeeper for Mane. Christensen followed and hugged the culprit from behind. Referee Paul Tierney initially showed Christensen the yellow card. After watching the slow motion tape, he switched to the live red card.

Playing more than people, Liverpool encroached on the field during the second half. Coach Jurgen Klopp sends rookie Thiago Alcantara to take Henderson’s place. Without Thiago making a mark, Liverpool opened the score thanks to the trio of Mohamed Salah, Mane and Firmino. Firmino sparked the ball when he turned on the wall with Salah and then escaped to the right. The Brazilian striker crossed the ball for Mane to hit the head to cut the face to the far corner, knocking Kepa in the 50th minute.
Four minutes later, Kepa made a serious mistake when Mane cut a pass in the penalty area. The Senegal striker easily cushioned the ball in the net, punishing the Chelsea goalkeeper mistake.

Chelsea suddenly rekindled hope to earn points, when Werner was fouled by Thiago in the Liverpool penalty area in the 73rd minute. Midfielder Jorginho took a familiar ‘flute jump’ free kick, but was caught by goalkeeper Alisson. Alisson waited for Jorginho to kick, then fell over and pushed the ball out. Jorginho was blocked for the first time, and the rare time Alisson got it.
In the remaining minutes, Liverpool did not stop shooting the goal but failed to score. Kepa atoned for an error in the compensation kick when falling over the ball to prevent Mane from scoring a hat-trick. He also blocked Salah’s shot in the last seconds. The ball bounced out to Gini Wijnaldum, but the Dutch midfielder was startled and could not get the ball into the net.

Arsenal – cannon revival?

The Premier League new season 2020-2021 is expected to continue Arsenal’s recovery under Mikel Arteta, after winning two consecutive Cups in a month.

The glory – in the FA Cup and then the British Super Cup – looks to be coming sooner than planned for Arteta and Arsenal. But according to the Guardian, the young Spaniard may still have to be more patient to complete the Arsenal rebirth process according to the roadmap he has set. The 2020-2021 season will give Arteta and associates time and the opportunity to do just that.

There are two cases of being “robbed on a streak” that Arsenal must remember. The way Serge Gnabry slipped out of his hand was well known. The young talent that Arsenal brought to Vietnam had a preliminary agreement on a new contract before joining the German Olympic Games in 2016. But instead, he signed with Werder Bremen, and then went to Bayern Munich. to become the current superstar.
In the second case, although there is less evidence to support, Kingsley Coman may also have been a member of Arsenal. Coman left PSG, then he and his agent visited Arsenal’s training ground in 2014. The English team is willing to pay a six-digit compensation fee and a seven-digit salary. But the transfer didn’t take place. Like Gnabry, Coman is also an important factor for this year’s Champions League championship of Bayern.

With all the reviews summing up over the past half-decade, a few relatively small deviations can make Arsenal recent past look completely different. And they need to see these things in order to start the season in a more positive way.
Arteta can thank Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang for his efforts in winning the FA Cup last season. But that feat also reflects the tactics that Arsenal has outperformed.

Inheriting the troubled collective inheritance, Arteta handled the work in varying degrees of weight. Matteo Guendouzi, Mesut Ozil all tasted “tearless discipline”, and no one felt the absence of these two stars. But what made Arteta so admiring was how he persuaded a skeptical Aubameyang to continue to dedicate top form to the “Gunners”.
Granit Xhaka was also persuaded to “transform from reincarnation” from attitude to style in a spectacular fashion. Meanwhile, Willian is expected to be an excellent addition to Arsenal’s forces this season. But be aware, this three-year contract, before nodding, admits to being fascinated by Arteta’s plans.
Arteta seems to have a strange ability to entice others on the same journey. Aubameyang’s prowess at Wembley ensured Arsenal under Arteta won a major title earlier than expected. And this season will tell, with Arteta, Arsenal will return to the modern “Super Cannon”, or still the old “Goddess”.

Sanchez: ‘Man Utd is not like a family’

On his personal Instagram on September 4, striker Alexis Sanchez revealed that he wanted to cancel his contract with Man Utd right after the first training session.
“Today I want to talk about Man Utd, about information that makes me look like a bad guy,” Sanchez said. “I reached an agreement with Man City, but the deal broke down, so I went to Man Utd. They made an interesting offer for me. I also liked Man Utd since childhood. I signed a contract without knowing what. After the first few days with my teammates, I realized the mistake. Right after the first training session, I went home and called my agent, asking if I could cancel my contract with Man. Utd to return to Arsenal no “.

“They laughed. Then I said: ‘Something’s wrong’. But I signed a contract. A few months later, I felt Man Utd was not a united team. Reporters and former players criticized that.” They don’t understand the teamwork They criticize the individuals, while Man Utd is not like a family When they need to blame someone they always aim at me Sometimes I only play 20 minutes, but the team loses It’s still me. Of course I blame myself for being able to do better in the few minutes, “said the Chilean striker.

Sanchez moved from Barca to Arsenal in 2014. In four years at the Emirates Stadium, he scored 60 goals in more than 120 Premier League games. Not winning major honors, but his fiery, mischievous and technical play style is appreciated. That is why in January 2018 Man Utd changed midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan to bring him back to Old Trafford with a weekly salary of $ 650,000 and the number 7 shirt once belonged to Eric Cantona, David Beckham or Cristiano Ronaldo. However, after a season and a half there, he only scored five goals in all competitions and early in the 2019-2020 season he was loaned to Inter.

“Then I struggled with the trauma. Reporters and former players blame me again. They say baseless things. Gradually I no longer feel happy. There was a match against West Ham, and I wasn’t even registered. It hurts me, because I have never been like that. From a top top player in the Premier League, I can’t play. I could not believe it. I’m sad and angry, and then go home. The next day I went to practice twice a day, because playing football is always fun, “he added.
After a season at Inter, Sanchez was accepted by Man Utd for free to play for the Italian team. This saves them $ 71 million in wages for the remaining two years on the contract. Before that, Man Utd averaged $ 26 million for each goal of the Chilean striker.
“At the end of the season, Man Utd had a new coach. I told him to let me go to Inter to enjoy the new atmosphere. He replied: ‘Okay, don’t worry’. Then I go for real”, striker 31 age added. “I just wanted to say thank you Man Utd for giving me the chance to play under their shirt. I’m upset that the time was not going well. If we behaved like a family we could have solved the problem. The reporter and former player did not expect their words to affect me. I have not said that until now. I regret not being able to bring victories and titles back to the fans.

Arteta and Edu assumed all purchasing power

Arsenal transfer news today August 17, 2020: According to the British press, the ‘Gunners’ latest movement is considered a historic ‘transfer’ when empowering Coach Arteta and Technical Director Edu.

Arsenal has just made a change in the top floor that caused a lot of attention, which is firing the head of the transfer, Mr. Raul Sanllehi, and at the same time bringing Mr. Vinai Venkatesham to the General Manager of the team.

This change helps coach Arteta and Edu fully take the initiative in implementing Arsenal’s team reform project, including short, medium and long-term plans when transferring and purchasing players.

Everyone saw, with the stature of the club being disputed at these schools. Therefore, we must act quickly, quickly and decisively to bring Arsenal back to these competitions soon.
With Arteta and Edu, we have a dynamic coach, a specialist in player evaluation. They will be a formidable team. We give them all the power to decide the expertise of the team.
Of course, above them there are me and the Board of Directors. But they are experts in the field, they have a clear plan to rebuild the team and convince people. So we started to work right away in the transfer window that is taking place
”.

Paul Merson said pessimistically about the rookie of Man City

After being left behind by Liverpool on the 2019/20 Premier League chart, Manchester City quickly showed their determination to overthrow The Kop by recruiting two new recruits Ferran Torres and Nathan Ake.

Nathan Ake: How would Bournemouth defender improve Manchester City ...

Talking about Nathan Ake, the reason for The Citizens to bring him back to Etihad is that last season, the center-back position was clearly the biggest weakness in Pep Guardiola’s system. And even with Aymeric Laporte back, loopholes in City’s defense remain, even in their victory over Real Madrid.
Obviously, City fans expect Ake to be Laporte’s perfect partner and shine brightly in the 2020/21 season. However, according to former player Paul Merson, he is not too optimistic about the deal:

Paul Merson nói về ake và city - Bóng Đá

He might not be suitable for City as many people think. The city isn’t the biggest football team in the world either. “
“Sometimes they get stuck in fixed situations, and Ake isn’t going to help them improve this.”
“Never before have we seen him show leadership qualities at Bournemouth. The lack of organization in the defense has cost Bournemouth a lot of points, and it’s not Eddie Howe’s fault alone.”
