Arsenal could be set for a loss of approximately £144 million ($178m) for the year 2020-21 if all games next season are staged behind closed doors. Bukayo Saka gave another impressive display out of position at left-back That is according to findings made by the Arsenal Supporters’ Trust (AST), which has produced detailed analysis of the potential impact the Covid-19 crisis could have on the club’s finances over the coming months. In an email sent out to members, the AST warned that Arsenal’s cash reserves could be ‘wiped out’ should the worst happen next season and predicted that the summer transfer window would be a quiet one as a result. The analysis also predicted that the club would now be set for a loss of £19m ($23m) for the year ending May 2020 due to the remaining games of the campaign being played behind closed doors. Prior to the pandemic, Arsenal had been on course for a profit of £4m ($5m). That change has been put down to Arsenal having to refund fans for the four remaining Premier League home games of the season, as well as a drop in commercial and retail revenue. The figures are a stark reminder of just how costly the coronavirus pandemic could be to Arsenal, especially as they are based on the assumption that Mikel Arteta’s side will go on and qualify for the Europa League next season and that there is no drop in broadcast revenue. It must be noted, however, that currently there has been no indication that the entire 2020-21 season will have to be played behind closed doors, although most expect at least the first half of the campaign to be staged without fans in attendance. Matchday income currently accounts for around 24 percent of Arsenal’s revenues and this is the time of year when season ticket money usually starts to arrive for the coming campaign. But executive box and club level renewals have been suspended, as have general season ticket renewals which would usually open from May. The AST says those pre-payments normally total close to £70m ($86m) and produce working capital for the off-season months of May, June and July. The numbers show how important matchday income is to Arsenal and reveal just how big the impact will be if they have to play behind closed doors next season, even if it is just for the first half of the campaign. Commercial and retail revenue would also be hit badly, with the AST warning of a loss of up to a third if games are played without fans next season. It also notes that the vast drop in combined revenues would have to result in either a significant reduction of costs, most likely from player wages, or tangible financial support from owners Kroenke Sports & Entertainment (KSE) through a loan or new capital. In summarising its findings, the AST said: “Covid-19 is likely to take Arsenal from a situation where they would have reported a small profit of £4m for this current season to one of recording a loss of £19m. If behind closed doors (BCD) becomes an issue that affects all of next season then the club could face reporting losses of £144m. “So we can see that the reduction in income from playing BCD for the rest of the season will knock £23m ($26m) from available cash at the end of the season as will the absence of season ticket renewals. “Arsenal’s available cash reserves heading into the summer of 2020-21 could be wiped out and a new borrowing requirement of over £50m ($62m) being required by the end of July if the club is to meet its commitments to pay other clubs installments due on player transfers and finance wages in June and July. So we certainly don’t predict a big-spending transfer window! read also:Arsenal make contact with Real Madrid over Saka replacement “Whilst the money set aside as security for the bondholders, who have lent the remaining £170m ($210m) of stadium-related debt, cannot be touched, it is almost inevitable that Arsenal will be drawing on its short term £50m ($62m) loan facility made available by Barclays.” FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享

Filipe Goncalves is a goalkeeper for the youth team of Portugese side Nacional and one day was woken up by a phone call asking him to go and train at the Madeira Stadium in Portugal. Football across the world had been put on hold due to the coronavirus pandemic so Goncalves was surprised by the call. ‘We thought it was to work with the main squad,’ the 18-year-old told A BOLA. When Goncalves arrived at the stadium and entered the pitch with his team-mate Hugo Mosca, on the grass was Juventus star Cristiano Ronaldo.

There were 10 training sessions in total, only three were with Hugo Mosca. Goncalves’ colleague returned home and Ronaldo trained alone with just Goncalves. At first it was a secret and Gonclaves couldn’t even tell his closest family. The youngster said: ‘I couldn’t tell anyone at all. It was forbidden. The information was that Nacional had returned to training and my parents thought that.’Until BOLA discovered Ronaldo in the Choupana and the secret was discovered. ‘It was total madness.

Andy Carroll has enjoyed his time at West Ham and insists he will always work hard for whichever team he is playing for. He added: “I knew a few of the lads down here already and all the others have welcomed me into the squad, so it’s been great. It doesn’t really matter what happens, I will work hard for the team I am playing for. This season has been great for me. “When I’m fit, I try my hardest and I run about and put myself about and I feel that’s what I’m about – if I didn’t have that then I would have lost half of my game.” Carroll currently tops the West Ham goalscoring charts this season along with captain Kevin Nolan, with both men finding the net on seven occasions so far. His performance in the 2-2 draw at home to Manchester United earned him the sorts of plaudits that saw Liverpool spend £35million to acquire his services from Newcastle in January 2011. Carroll, who has a chequered history off the field, said he has enjoyed the time spent with the West Ham squad and has been pleased with his own contributions since recovering from his early-season injury problems. “I think I have done well since I came back to fitness in February, not just with the goals that I’ve scored but I’ve also created quite a bit as well,” he added. “I’ve put myself about as much as I can and that’s really what I’m about. As long as I’m in and around the box, I can do things. “There is a lot of talk about me from people who don’t know me, who say things about me but have never met me. People have heard stories and I came here and maybe a lot of the lads thought that as well, but I feel now that most, if not all, of them are close friends. I spend every day with them and it’s been great.” The 24-year-old is approaching the end of his season-long loan at Upton Park from Liverpool and, despite a couple of injury setbacks earlier in the campaign, the England international has impressed during his time in east London. It remains to be seen if Carroll will pen a permanent deal with the Hammers, with financial constraints and a yearning from the player to prove himself at Anfield likely stumbling blocks. But the ex-Newcastle striker admits he has had a great season, telling West Ham TV: “Coming down here to London, it’s a long way from home but I’ve enjoyed every minute of it.” Press Association
In a collaboration spanning more than 3,000 miles and 40 courses of instruction, The New York Times and USC announced a joint venture Tuesday that will offer extensive continuing education programs sponsored by the two institutions.Collaboration · The Office of Continuing Education, located at the Davidson Conference Center, will partner with The New York Times. – Dieuwertje Kast | Summer Trojan The university will co-sponsor online courses in seven areas of study with the Times’ Knowledge Network, an already established adult and continuing education program offered by the newspaper. Courses will be taught in architecture, arts management, business, cinematic arts, communications, medicine and politics.The collaboration between the programs is the first of its kind in continuing education as a partnership between a for-profit institution and a university of USC’s size.The opportunity to use both partners’ vast resources for continuing education where it might otherwise be unavailable was a major motivating factor behind the partnership.“It allows [USC] to take some of our core academics and share it with the community at large,” Eileen Kohan, executive director for Continuing Education and Summer Programs, said. “[The partnership] gives us the opportunity to be viewed as one of the top continuing education programs.”Courses, which begin Oct. 10, will be headed by current USC faculty with the participation of at least one journalist from The Times. Those who enroll in classes through the collaboration will also have complete access to the Knowledge Network’s offerings in writing, science, health and editing.Felice Nudelman, executive director of education at The New York Times Co., noted the partnership’s exceptional ability to reach students around the world.“This is a truly innovative way to offer a comprehensive continuing education program that will feature a broad course catalog and exceptional faculty,” Nudelman said in a statement. “Together we will establish a global online resource for students who are interested in maximizing their education regardless of geographic location.”The program will also feature a program led by Times journalists and USC professor tailored specifically to high school students. If students take the entire six-course schedule, they can receive a certificate. Alternatively, they can register for one of two single-sessionlectures.USC and The Times are also set to launch the venture internationally in Hong Kong during the USCGlobal conferenceOct. 13. Many USC alumni are located throughout Asia and the collaboration hopes to bring continuing education to them with the program.According to Kohan, response to the program has been tremendous and she expects it to grow considerably within the next few months.USC alumni who enroll in the program will have a 10 percent discount available to them.
USC’s Norris Cinema Theatre will screen Education Under Fire, a documentary produced by USC alumnus David Hoffman that discusses the religious persecution against the Bahá’í people in Iran and recaps attacks against the Bahá’í Institute for Higher Education, on Friday.Though BIHE is more than 7,000 miles away from USC, Hoffman, the film’s executive producer and co-creator, said USC students can help halt injustice.“Every USC student should see this documentary and imagine in the 21st century a government that will use weapons against its own people to deprive them of higher education just because of their faith,” said Hoffman, a USC alumnus of the class of 1976. “Education is the bedrock of society and a fundamental human right so we are urging students to speak out against this injustice.”One of the ways students can speak out is to sign an online petition that generates letters to top Iranian officials, Hoffman said.“There are USC students here on this campus that have helped innocent people fight injustice and transform lives,” said Ata Farhadi, a graduate student studying law and a member of the Bahá’í Student Association. “When someone on this planet is denied a basic human right, we are all attacked because we are all human.”Farhadi said ignoring injustice abroad is dangerous.“We make a moral choice to either fight injustice or ignore it,” Farhadi said. “If we choose the latter, we are lessening ourselves and depriving our community. We all pay a price for every moral judgment we make and if we allow religious persecution in Iran there may come a day when we too will suffer the same fate.”In 1948, Iran signed the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Article 26 of the document lists education as a human right. Still, Education Under Fire argues the Iranian government is attempting to strip Bahá’ís, Iran’s largest minority group of about 300,000 people, of their right to education.Education Under Fire is a 30-minute documentary that follows the lives of several BIHE teachers who the Iranian government arrested in the name of national security. According to Hoffman, however, one of the key principles of Bahá’í faith is to obey the government or ruling power.“The Bahá’í are a peaceful and noble people,” Hoffman said. “They have had to cope with arrest, imprisonment and even torture, but they still maintain BIHE.”The film focuses on BIHE and how the institute is still in operation despite the Iranian government’s intervention, but Jeff Kaufman, the film’s director and producer, said the documentary is not against Iran.“There are many Iranian friends, neighbors and even strangers who have reached out to help Bahá’í people,” Kaufman said. “This film shows the potential of Iran and the real power a whole group of people can make.”Dean of Religious Life Varun Soni said all students, regardless of religion or study, can connect with the documentary.“This documentary hits upon very important issues for USC students, such as pluralism, diversity, education and civil rights,” Soni said. “No matter what you’re studying, there is an aspect of what is happening to Bahá’ís in Iran that you can learn from.”In addition to the petition, one of the main goals of the campaign is to convince university leaders in the United States to give Bahá’í students credit for BIHE courses so they can pursue post-graduate education internationally. Not long after the campaign launched last November, Harvard Graduate School of Education Dean Kathleen McCartney officially announced that the school accepts BIHE coursework for transfer credit.USC Bahá’í Club President Laleh Mehrrafiee attributes this success to the size and strength of the Education Under Fire movement.“This campaign is the largest action the Bahá’ís have taken to fight this persecution, and we are their voices, essentially, because if [Bahá’ís] in Iran stand up against this persecution, they end up more persecuted against,” Mehrrafiee said.
However, during last Tuesday’s Western Conference Final, the No. 2 Seattle Sounders ended LAFC’s record-breaking season, handing the club a 3-1 loss. Johannah Suegay is a sophomore writing about LAFC. Her column, “Black & Gold,” runs every other Thursday. Midfielder Eduard Atuesta gave LAFC the early lead in the 17th minute with a curling free kick from 25 yards out. However, the Seattle Sounders equalized five minutes later with a goal from forward Raúl Ruidíaz and went on to score another unanswered goal. On paper, LAFC seemingly dominated the game with 69% of the possession and an 88% pass accuracy compared to Seattle’s 68%. Since its inaugural season in 2009, Seattle has never missed the MLS Cup Playoffs. The Sounders are going to their third MLS Cup final in four years and are looking to win their second championship in that span. Patience will be key in waiting for LAFC to finally win the MLS Cup. Looking at the Seattle Sounders, added playoff experience will benefit LAFC immensely — teaching them grit, persistence and fighting as one unit towards one goal. The results of last Tuesday’s semifinal showed what Seattle has learned from its abundant playoff appearances: how to win games when losing means an end to a hard-fought season. While it is easy to look ahead with hope as to what the team can be in the future, there is a lot for LAFC fans to celebrate now. As a second-year club that broke records left and right, LAFC has set the standard for future expansion teams. This past season will be remembered for showing just how dominant a team can be in the MLS. Still, Seattle’s opportunistic play and its approach to defending Vela are not the only reasons it won against LAFC. While the team will not be raising the MLS Cup trophy, LAFC was well-represented in the MLS’s year-end awards. Following a season in which his team claimed the MLS Supporters’ Shield, LAFC head coach Bob Bradley deservingly won the 2019 MLS Sigi Schmid Coach of the Year award. Throughout the game, the Sounders capitalized on limited opportunities to score. They were also successful in not allowing Vela to get on the scoreboard. Throughout the match, Seattle was physical and assertive — often putting two or three men on Vela. Looking ahead to the future of LAFC, I believe there is a lot of hope. With a top-notch coach in Bradley, world-class striker and captain in Vela and many other talented players that were essential in LAFC’s incredible season, there is a lot for fans to look forward to. Golden Boot winner and LAFC Captain, Carlos Vela, also claimed the title of 2019 Landon Donovan MLS Most Valuable Player — the highest achievement for MLS Players. Vela was also the first Mexican MVP. However, the boost provided by the Sounders’ recent history of playoff success couldn’t be discounted. Although it did not end as many expected, LAFC’s season is still one to be celebrated and admired. Many expected that by the end of this week, Los Angeles Football Club would be hoisting the MLS Cup trophy. Especially after its commanding playoff victory over the Los Angeles Galaxy — its first win over the crosstown rival in franchise history — a perfect ending to the season seemed within reach.
That something is Kedon Slovis, who shattered the program records for both passing yards in a season by a freshman and single-game passing yards by any quarterback in a sterling 515-yard, four-touchdown performance. Slovis was absolutely lights out, putting the pressure on UCLA’s offense by guiding the Trojans to an early lead and responding with scores every time the Bruins mounted a comeback attempt. Aidan Berg is a junior writing about sports. He is also an associate managing editor for Daily Trojan. His column, “Berg is the Word,” runs every Monday. The University must balance that requirement with the priority of holding onto Harrell. It needs to find an inspired coaching candidate — no, not Urban Meyer — that will be willing to retain and work with Harrell and his crew. This is why USC cannot afford to get rid of Harrell. The relationship between an offensive coordinator and their quarterback is crucial to a team’s performance, and the Trojans have found one that works — really well. Slovis has shown he can be one of the best quarterbacks in school history, but we don’t know what he looks like with someone else calling the shots. Even with the injuries at running back, it shouldn’t have taken that long to develop a complementary run game. But it’s also important to remember that Harrell is young and coaching his first season in a Power 5 conference. Just like Slovis, he’s had a fantastic first season, and he’s only going to get better. Slovis is the perfect signal-caller for Harrell’s modified Air Raid approach. He almost always makes good decisions, so he can sling the ball more than 50 times without risking too many turnovers. He’s also got fantastic accuracy and knows how to find his receivers in positions for them to make plays with the ball. The crazy thing is that due to the attack’s execution-based nature, Slovis is only going to get better over time. He’s had a few freshman mistakes where he tried to force the ball between defenders, but that’s something he can iron out. Saturday’s game continued the trend of Slovis putting up monstrous numbers — and not just for a freshman. Over his final five games this season, Slovis averaged 404.6 passing yards and 3.8 touchdowns per game while completing over 70% of his pass attempts. If there were fantasy football for the college game, Slovis’ home stretch would have won the league for many of his owners. USC fans have obviously loved what they’ve seen from the once-unheralded three-star recruit, but there’s a small discrepancy between their future hopes for Slovis and their demand that the University move on from Helton. If USC elects to hire a new head coach, he will almost definitely want to bring on a whole new staff, including an offensive coordinator to replace Graham Harrell. Harrell isn’t necessarily a perfect offensive coordinator either. He sometimes gives up on the run game a little too easily, and Saturday was the first time the Trojans could really make a team pay for dropping eight by running the ball effectively. USC football has been heading for a head coaching change ever since the team’s embarrassing 56-24 home defeat to the Oregon Ducks a few weeks ago. At the time, the Trojans were 5-4, and no matter how the rest of the season went, it seemed like the right time to move on from Clay Helton and bring in a staff that could help the considerable talent on this roster reach true contender status. The Trojans have something special on their hands. It’s rare to have two key pieces of your team be so productive and yet have so much room to grow. It’s even rarer for those two pieces to fit perfectly together. It’s been an encouraging end to the season, but if Harrell doesn’t return next year, the offense will enter the 2020 season opener against Alabama with more questions than answers. To protect Slovis’ seemingly definitive status as a star to rely on for the next three years, USC should do whatever it can to avoid this result. Harrell has been a huge factor in Slovis’ success. The freshman quarterback has said so himself, crediting Harrell’s scheme (and his teammates) for his big numbers. Remember that Slovis didn’t even get the first-team reps until after sophomore JT Daniels went down with a knee injury in the team’s opener. Imagine what he can do with a full spring and fall camp as well as a season of experience under his belt. I’m not going to claim that Slovis couldn’t look just as good under some other offensive coordinator. He has talent that most evaluators obviously missed in the recruiting process. From mental processing to arm talent, Slovis has looked close to the total package these last few games. But we know that he works with Harrell, and that’s not something USC should mess with. USC now has a delicate tightrope to walk. It needs to bring on a new head coach so that it can reach its rightful aspirations as a College Football Playoff contender. It needs a head coach who not only inspires devotion from his players, as Helton does, but spurs them on to new levels of play. It also needs an improved defensive staff, as evidenced by the 35 points allowed to a seemingly unstoppable UCLA offense Saturday. While I still believe that is the correct course of action, something about Saturday’s 52-35 victory over UCLA complicates the coaching matter just a bit.
Defending champion Roger Federer is out of the Australian Open after Greek 14th seed Stefanos Tsitsipas earned the biggest win of his career to reach the quarter-finals. The Swiss lost 6-7 (11-13) 7-6 (7-3) 7-5 7-6 (7-5) on a dramatic night.Also yesterday, Wimbledon champion Angelique Kerber was knocked out by world number 35 Danielle Collins in the biggest shock of the tournament.Home favourite Ashleigh Barty won nine games in a row to inspire a comeback against Maria Sharapova and book her place in the Australian Open quarter-finals. Having lost the first set, Barty broke twice in the second and went on to win 4-6 6-1 6-4 to reach the last eight of a Grand Slam for the first timeThe world number two was thrashed 6-0 6-2 in the fourth round in 56 minutes.Federer, a six-time champion, failed to reach the last eight in Melbourne for only the second time in 16 years.Tsitsipas, 20, saved all 12 of 37-year-old Federer’s break points on his way to a famous win.“I’m the happiest man on earth right now, I can’t describe it,” he said.Federer lumped a forehand long to leave Tsitsipas serving for the match in the fourth-set tie-break, and the youngster forced him into a backhand error to win in three hours and 45 minutes.Tsitsipas dropped his racquet in celebration and seemed to mouth “me?” at his team before starting to cry as walked over to celebrate with them.He will play Spain’s Roberto Bautista Agut, who beat Croatian sixth seed Marin Cilic in five sets, in the last eight.Federer was aiming to win a record seventh men’s singles title at Melbourne Park, moving him clear of world number one Novak Djokovic and Australian legend Roy Emerson.But the 20-time Grand Slam champion was undone by a player considered to be one of the best hopes to take over the mantle when Federer – along with Djokovic and Rafael Nadal – retires.The pair were contesting their first ATP-level match, although did meet last month in a Hopman Cup tie which Federer edged in two tie-breaks, indicating their contest in Melbourne would be equally as tight.Tsitsipas’ fearless and energetic approach unsettled Federer, seemingly putting doubt in the former world number one’s mind on the key points.Federer failed to convert any of 12 break points, with some errant forehands particularly letting him down.“There are always multiple factors in match like this, but it didn’t go well on the set points,” he said.“I didn’t break him at the Hopman Cup either, so something is going wrong. It is very frustrating.”The most significant were the eight which he could not take in a six-game spell in the second set.For three consecutive service games, Tsitsipas was put under severe examination in lengthy battles which the Greek eventually came through unscathed.That enabled him to go on and level in the tie-break – a pivotal moment which turned the match in his favour.Federer had lost his last two Grand Slam matches after dropping sets for the first time in the tournament – against Kevin Anderson at Wimbledon and John Millman at the US Open – and he suffered the same fate again.“I lost to a better player who played very well. He stayed calm and hung in there, which is not easy for younger guys so credit to him,” Federer added.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram
