Press Association Angry Gunners fans chanted for the manager to sign a striker at the end of their 1-1 draw at Leicester on Sunday. Olivier Giroud is out until January with a broken tibia and Wenger was linked with Loic Remy before he joined Chelsea on Sunday. Boss Arsene Wenger has urged Arsenal fans to trust him in the transfer market and insisted they must stop dreaming of an instant solution. They never pursued a deal for the QPR man, though, despite reports of an inquiry. Rookie Yaya Sanogo started up front at the King Power Stadium but it was Alexis Sanchez who netted the opener, which was immediately cancelled out by Leonardo Ulloa. And Wenger wants supporters to remain patient despite Monday’s looming transfer deadline. “As long as the transfer market is open it makes everyone dream by thinking the solution is always somewhere but it’s not necessarily obvious,” he said. “The solution every time you don’t win is to buy someone. We are out there and we’ll try our best and you have to trust us. “You can’t think every time you don’t win a game there’s a miracle man who can win you the game. “Why did Manchester City not win against Stoke? They have plenty of strikers, football is a team sport and we cannot sell it too much as an individual sport.” And Wenger, who lost Laurent Koscielny to a head injury, insisted the Gunners will keep looking before the window closes but refused to give assurances on new arrivals. “I have been in England long enough to know I don’t want to promise when I’m not 100 per cent,” said Wenger, who also admitted Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain suffered a minor calf injury. “It is not unlimited money because that’s not the way we manage the club. We will try to make the right decision but we have the resources if we think it’s the right player.” Ulloa levelled just two minutes after Sanchez’s 20th minute opener to claim a deserved point for Leicester. It was the striker’s second goal of the season, although he missed a fine chance in the second half to win the game. But boss Nigel Pearson believes his side, who have drawn two and lost one in their opening three Barclays Premier League games since promotion, are improving. “I think when you have a group of players, and a lot haven’t experience the Premier League before in this intensity, the three games we have had have been pretty tough,” he said. “They can reflect on the game and know we can get better and improve but they have given as good as they got. “That should give them confidence. “There isn’t really a great deal of pressure on the players because no-one expected us to beat them. The pressure is on when people make assumptions you should win games. We have to make sure how we judge our players is based on the standards we set ourselves. “I am pragmatic on how I look at fixtures and reflect on performances.”
Riyad Mahrez then shot wide after a move that began with City playing a series of passes inside their own penalty area.And Aguero squandered an excellent chance in the 25th minute, hitting his shot against McCarthy after Sterling had accelerated past the hapless Targett.But overplaying at the other end almost proved City’s undoing.Ederson was nearly caught by Austin before dribbling round the striker. But he showed a mastery of the more conventional goalkeeping arts on the half-hour with a diving save to keep out Austin’s glancing header from a corner by Ward-Prowse.City did not heed the warning and Saints were level after 36 minutes.Oleksandr Zinchenko was slow to see Hojbjerg closing in on him and the Southampton captain robbed the Ukraine defender and strode forward before lashing the ball in from 15 yards.– City double stuns Saints –Zinchenko could count himself lucky that referee Paul Tierney did not see his barge on Ward-Prowse after 44 minutes as a penalty.And the home crowd were still complaining about that decision when City retook the lead on the stroke of half-time.Sterling forced his way down the left and fired in a low cross that hit the foot of Ward-Prowse and zipped between the surprised McCarthy and his near post.And the crowd’s disbelief was complete three minutes into first-half stoppage time when Aguero rose unchallenged by Jan Bednarek to nod Zinchenko’s cross under McCarthy.In the second half both sides went through the motions. City had the points they needed and Southampton were happy to avoid further damage to their confidence and goal difference. But even then City could have had three or four more goals.Sterling shot straight at McCarthy, Aguero hit the angle of the post and crossbar, and Mahrez blasted straight at the goalkeeper.Share on: WhatsApp Southampton, United Kingdom | AFP | Manchester City showed they are willing to accept the challenge of Liverpool in the race for the Premier League title with a 3-1 win away to Southampton on Sunday.Following shock defeats by Crystal Palace and Leicester, reigning champions City cut the gap between themselves and Premier League leaders Liverpool to seven points ahead of their meeting with the Merseysiders at the Etihad Stadium on Thursday.But they allowed a limited Southampton side back into the game after a dominating start, which suggests there are still frailties for Liverpool to exploit.David Silva put City ahead after 10 minutes but they passed up a number of chances to add to the lead and gifted Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg an equaliser in the 37th minute.For a period, Pep Guardiola’s side looked fragile, but a James Ward-Prowse own-goal and a header by Sergio Aguero just before half-time restored their confidence.Saints’ frustrations boiled over with a red card for Hojbjerg after a wild challenge on Fernandinho late in the game.Southampton manager Ralph Hasenhuttl sprang a surprise in his team selection by giving a debut to 18-year-old former Chelsea starlet Kayne Ramsay at right-back.City should have gone ahead in the fifth minute when Jack Stephens allowed Raheem Sterling to steal possession and set up David Silva.But the City man tried to be too deliberate, with his shot blocked by goalkeeper Alex McCarthy.But Saints could also have taken a more surprising lead after eight minutes when Mohamed Elyounoussi’s clever flick over the City defence sent Charlie Austin clear.Austin’s first touch, however, was dreadful and sent the ball into Ederson’s grateful arms.Instead of being a goal up, the home side were behind within a minute.The left side of their defence was opened up with ease by a simple one-two, leaving Bernardo Silva clear of full-back Matt Targett and free to advance down the right. He had all the time he wanted to pick out the unmarked David Silva, who hit the ball first-time past McCarthy.
29 Apr 2015 England Golf partners 59Club to help grow the game England Golf, the governing body for English amateur golf, has partnered with 59Club, Europe’s leading customer service analysts and training consultants, to help create an even brighter future for the sport. The agreement includes support for a pilot project which England Golf is running in Warwickshire, Staffordshire and Northamptonshire to trial new ways of increasing participation and club membership. 59Club’s mystery testers will make telephone enquiry calls and live visits at selected clubs in each of the three counties. They will analyse customer service levels, including those offered to non-members who visit as day guests. 59Club will also gather feedback from current golf club members. The data and feedback will be collated and analysed before a series of staff training programmes takes place, led by 59Club’s team of experienced trainers. In addition, England Golf has agreed a package for its GolfMark clubs, giving them access to 59club’s customer service and sales resources at a subsidised rate. The GolfMark award recognises clubs which achieve high standards in recruitment and retention; management and sustainability; coaching and competitions; and safeguarding. The partnership between the two organisations supports the aims of the England Golf strategic plan – Raising Our Game – which calls on all who care about the game to work together to create a brighter future for golf, including more players, more members and stronger clubs. Richard Flint, the England Golf director of participation and club support, said: “59Club has a track record of success with individual resorts and golf clubs and many of its analysis tools – including in-depth, golf-member surveys – will prove advantageous to us as we work to grow the game. “This partnership will allow England Golf to use club profiling to identify clubs requiring support, and also to trial 59Club’s customer-service tools and mentoring.” Simon Wordsworth, chief executive at 59Club and a fellow of the PGA, added: “We are delighted to be able to make available parts of our process for the use of England Golf. Growing the game at the amateur level is essential for the whole industry moving forward, and if we can, in even a small way, play a part in making that ambition a success, we will be delighted.” 59Club is fast becoming the industry standard for measuring and comparing customer service levels and analysing all key revenue streams for golf venues, and is committed to the on-going development of club managers and PGA professionals. The unique benchmarking and training service has already benefited hundreds of PGA members and golf-course operators including Wentworth, Marriott, Stoke Park and Goodwood. The services include a series of mystery shopper recorded enquiry calls and live visits, followed up with regular analysis and training to ensure venues can identify trends and compare, improve, or maintain, service standards.

VANCOUVER, B.C. –A newly released Fraser Institute study suggests increases in the minimum wage do very little to reduce poverty, and in some cases can make matters worse.Charles Lammam, the Institutes’ Director of Fiscal Studies, noted 60 per cent of minimum wage earners in this country are teens or young adults.- Advertisement -What is arguably the most crucial piece of the study data, confirms, that only two percent of low income workers are single parents with at least one child.So that would seem to put outside any alignment with the facts, the often quoted perception, of the typical minimum-wage earner being a struggling single parent.Meantime, Lammam also notes minimum wage hikes can do considerable harm.So that begs the question: is there a better way to help these workers?Advertisement
