‘Lazy’ Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s poor goal record after signing huge new contract shows Arsenal captain may be ‘another Mesut Ozil’ as Martin Keown calls for Gabriel Martinelli to replace him

Sports
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s struggles in front of goal since signing a whopping £350,000-a-week contract are a big concern for Arsenal. The striker was brought in for a club-record fee of £54million back in January 2018, and he netted 54 Premier League goals in his first two-and-a-half seasons at the Emirates. GETTY Aubameyang was a goalscoring machine at the start of his Arsenal career GETTY But he’s been poor in 2020/21 and not looked the same player His goals helped them win an FA Cup and Community Shield trophy last summer and he bagged himself a Premier League Golden Boot in 2019. This campaign, however, it’s been a different story. The pacy forward has scored only nine league goals this season...

Jamal Lascelles scores injury-time goal to rescue point for relegation-threatened Newcastle against Aston Villa

Sports
Jamal Lascelles scored an injury-time equaliser to rescue a point for Newcastle in a 1-1 draw with Aston Villa on Friday night. The Magpies captain rose highest to head past Emiliano Martinez with the last attack of the match after a Ciaran Clark own goal had given Villa an 86th-minute lead. Getty - Pool Lascelles netted a header in the fourth minute of stoppage time Newcastle and Aston Villa were both toothless in attack for the majority of the contest at St James’ Park. A long-range shot from Ryan Fraser and Trezeguet stinging Martin Dubravka’s palms were the best efforts of a dull first-half. The second-half did not offer much else either with Martinez doing well to deal with a powerful back header from his own player, Matt Targett. Joelinton was ...
Lessons from the Gita for market practitioners: Different paths to the same goal

Lessons from the Gita for market practitioners: Different paths to the same goal

Finance
As you grow older, your reading pattern changes. I find myself engaging in more of spiritual reading and, of course, many of those texts are based on concepts from the Bhagavad Gita. Reading some parts, I was struck by the relevance that some of the observations in that great text can have for financial markets. This is a bad habit I have, of taking every good thing of life and transporting those into the market context, because I try and draw a lot of parallels between how you live and lead your life and how you act and perform in the markets. In Chapter 12 of the Gita, Arjuna asks Krishna as to which form of worship will be more preferred – whether through the form of the Lord or through meditation on the formless nature of the Lord. While the Lord answers Arjuna in different ways to mak...

Liverpool score 7,000th top flight goal as they end losing run in Premier League with triumph over Sheffield United

Sports
It’s too early to say if Liverpool are back in business but a 2-0 win at Sheffield United will make Jurgen Klopp and Co. feel a whole lot better. They went into the Bramall Lane clash having lost their last four matches in the Premier League but they had no such problems on Sunday night. AFP Roberto Firmino and Curtis Jones set Liverpool on their way for the win Curtis Jones slotted in the opener just after the break while a Roberto Firmino effort, which took a sizeable deflection off Kean Bryan, sealed the three points. Liverpool’s second goal was actually their 7,000th in top flight matches on a night where they could have had more but for the brilliant goalkeeping of Aaron Ramsdale. Ramsdale saved efforts to deny Firmino, Andy Robertson, Moha...

Wolverhampton Wanderers 1-0 Leeds United: Illan Meslier’s own goal gives hosts victory

Sports
Illan Meslier's unfortunate own goal following Adama Traore's sensational strike gave Wolverhampton Wanderers victory against Leeds in an entertaining Premier League encounter. There was little to separate the sides before Traore hit a thunderous effort from distance just after the hour and the ball hit the crossbar before rebounding off the back of Meslier's head into the Leeds goal.The visitors had gone close to scoring themselves just moments earlier when Rui Patricio denied Liam Cooper's header from point-blank range before the follow-up by Patrick Bamford was scrambled clear. Bamford also thought he had snatched an equaliser late on as he powered through on goal before finishing brilliantly but he was flagged just offside, before ex-Wolves winger Helder Costa spurned a glorious chance...
