Ozil back on his game, says Wenger

first_img0Shares0000Mesut Ozil celebrates scoring the opener against West Ham on Wednesday night’s 3-0 win.PHOTO/Daily MailLONDON, United Kingdom, Apr 6 – Arsene Wenger praised Mesut Ozil after the German World Cup winner helped Arsenal to a 3-0 Premier League victory over struggling West Ham and maintain their hopes of qualifying for the Champions League on Wednesday.The result lifted the Gunners above Manchester United into fifth place in the Premier League table — four points adrift of the fourth and final Champions League spot held by Manchester City although the Gunners have a game in hand. The result — West Ham’s fifth loss in a row — also deepened the relegation fears circling Slaven Bilic’s side as they are just five points clear of third from bottom Swansea who play them at the weekend.Ozil scored his side’s first goal, in the 58th minute, and set up Theo Walcott for the second, with substitute Olivier Giroud netting a clinching third late on.“I feel he is back physically and with focus,” Wenger said of Ozil, who had not scored since December 10.“He had been hit hard by us going out of the Champions League and it took him some time to recover from that mentally.“I feel for a few weeks now in training he is really focused again and that comes out in the game.”Wenger said he was positive about Arsenal’s chances of making the top four, something he has achieved in all his 20 plus years at the club and a target he has set himself this time round while insisting it is not a condition of the board’s towards signing a new contract.“It’s possible of course,” the 67-year-old Frenchman said.“We have players back from injury and we have done it before in more difficult conditions.“It was a good result and a relief as well because we had gone through a bad period but the mentality of the team was healthy.“We have scored over 100 goals this season already so going forward we were always good but defensively we were not good enough.“I never questioned the mentality of the team, it was just that when you go through a difficult period the happiness and the confidence go quickly and come back slowly.”Bilic — who has received the dreaded vote of confidence during a season in marked contrast to last one where they qualified for Europe — called on his players to show courage and leadership.“Of course we are in a relegation battle,” Bilic said.“We don’t have to hide it. It’s not being negative, it’s being realistic.“After five defeats you can’t talk about great confidence. You need three points to get it back. Now is the time we need to show leadership, starting with me.“I told the guys ‘forget about this game – there is only one game now for us and that is against Swansea on Saturday’.“I haven’t lost my belief in them, they are good players.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Council vote on conversion could backfire

first_img 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! The park owner has also offered $10 million in homebuyers’ loans and upgrades to the mobile home park. Such incentives could be lost if the owner prevails in court and the conversion proceeds. And the city could end up throwing away money in a costly uphill legal battle. A better outcome might have been for the council to pledge to stand with park residents in lobbying Sacramento for a change in the current law – but not plunging ahead into uncertain legal territory. A state bill under consideration would give local governments more control over mobile home park conversions. We feel the course the council took could do little more than give people false hopes. Change is not always easy, but unless the state Legislature intervenes, it may be inevitable. The job of City Council members can vary with circumstances. Usually it’s all about helping constituents with their concerns or figuring out how to do what is best for community as a whole. Other times, however, the job calls for leadership – leveling with people, even if the truth isn’t what they want to hear. A divided Carson City Council last week voted to reject a proposal to convert Carson Harbor Village Mobile Home Park to resident ownership. That may have comforted many park residents who fear the loss of city’s strict rent-control protection. But the vote also clears the way for the park owner to take legal action against the city. Prevailing state law gives the owner the right to convert his property and sell off the individual lots that mobile home residents now rent. Park owner James Goldstein has already won a similar case, and the city staff recommended that the council approve the conversion, along with financial help for moderate-income park residents to purchase their spaces. That help would have come through the city’s aid program for first-time homebuyers and other assistance. last_img read more

Outage outrage

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREPhotos: At LA County Jail, Archbishop José H. Gomez celebrates Christmas Mass with inmatesThe need to invest more was obvious. First, the nation’s second-largest city is growing, adding new homes and new power users virtually every day. Second, it gets hot here in the summer, particularly in the San Fernando Valley. During the Hahn administration in particular, the DWP poured hundreds of millions of dollars of utility revenue into endless pay raises for workers and to pet projects, with more for cronies. And then it looted what was left and put it into the city’s general fund so that the elected officials, bureaucrats and rank-and-file workers could get huge increases in pay, benefits and perks. Amazingly, the city’s leaders said the windfall electricity revenue could not be used to fund badly needed water supply improvements so they have jacked up water rates sharply and intend to increase them more. In other words, city salaries, yes; the public, no. So this is what we have to look forward to as Los Angeles? Higher power rates and a daily gamble that the lights will stay on? That’s not good enough. But where’s the outcry from the elected leadership? The City Council howls because the police chief tells members rightly that they don’t know what they’re talking about, but it remains silent on the DWP. Or worse, the mayor and other city leaders tell us to “flex our power,” as if this energy crisis were our fault. The fault lies not with the people but with their leaders.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! NO matter what the folks at the Department of Water and Power may claim, the brutal and seemingly endless heat wave is not why Los Angeles residents are going without power for air conditioning, lights or refrigerators these days. Sure, temperatures have hit Death Valley levels and the uncommon humidity has made it unbearable. And yes, the demands on the DWP and the state’s power grid have set records. But the breakdowns are not occurring because of insufficient electricity or because of too much demand. No, the problems in L.A. were local, sometimes a single home or a few hundred in a neighborhood. The DWP could not deliver because it did not properly invest in infrastructure when it was reaping windfall profits from selling power during the statewide energy crisis. last_img read more

Taylor hopes ‘statement’ win over Vazquez opens doors

first_imgThe Prestonpans fighter is looking for steady progress towards his ambition of being a world champion and said fighting for a continental belt could come before any fight in America.“I think the next step is maybe looking at that European belt,” he said. “Anthony Yigit is the champion and I boxed him and beat him in the amateurs. That’s a fight we’re looking at as potentially next.“He’s fighting in a couple of weeks so if he wins that could be next. We need to wait and see and take it from there.” Josh Taylor believes his win against Miguel Vazquez will have caught the attention of American boxers and promoters as he looks to take the next step forward in his career.The super-lightweight put his WBC Silver title on the line on Saturday against the experienced Mexican and stopped Vazquez in the ninth round.Taylor became the first boxer to stop Vazquez in 45 fights and says a “statement” performance could provide opportunities to move on to bigger and better things.“I’m still over the moon with it,” he told STV. “I’ve just watched the fight back just now and there were a few things I could have done better to make life easier for myself. “I had to grit my teeth and get in there but it was a good solid performance and I put in a bit of a statement by being the first guy to stop him.”He added: “I think it definitely has gone Stateside. That’s where all the big fights are just now. “All the champions are over there so I think my name is definitely out there in America now. Belts have just become vacant so the division is wide open.“I’m hopefully right in the mix now for getting involved in some big fights and hopefully getting that one step closer to becoming world champion.”last_img read more
