MOTD2 Analysis: 'Why Arsenal are in trouble with or without Sanchez'

MOTD2 Analysis: 'Why Arsenal are in trouble with or without Sanchez'

Sports
Arsenal's summer has been largely dominated by Alexis Sanchez's future - and will continue to be until Thursday's transfer deadline has passed - but Sunday's demoralising defeat at Liverpool showed there are bigger issues to deal with.In losing 4-0 at Anfield, Arsenal showed tactically they are nowhere near their rivals for a top-four place in the Premier League. More worryingly, they lacked hunger and they don't look like a team. I genuinely don't know what Arsene Wenger is saying to them on the training ground.

A commercial LNG tanker has sailed across the colder, northern route from Europe to Asia without the protection of an ice-breaker for the first time. The specially-built ship completed the crossing in just six-and-a-half days setting a new record, according to tanker's Russian owners. The 300-metre-long Sovcomflot ship, the Christophe de Margerie, was carrying gas from Norway to South Korea.Rising Arctic temperatures are boosting commercial shipping across this route. The Christophe de Margerie is the world's first and, at present, only ice-breaking LNG carrier. The ship, which features a lightweight steel reinforced hull, is the largest commercial ship to receive Arc7 certification, which means it is capable of travelling through ice up to 2.1m thick. On this trip it was able to keep up a...

MUMBAI: Builders who have been thinking of ways to beat the new Real Estate Regulation Act are fast running out of time as banks, in consultation with the Reserve Bank of India, have decided not to extend loans to those projects which have not been registered under RERA. "We have to look for some security mechanism, and since RERA is designed to weed out fly-by-night operators, we have decided not to extend credit to projects not registered with it," said a bank official who did not wish to be identified. "Adhering to the regulations will safeguard our interests, it's better to be safe now than regret later." Banks have also sought additional collateral, including on personal properties of promoters, as guarantees while disbursing loans to a few real estate developers. "We are very ap...
