Home Everton News Everton: Greg O’Keeffe can see Moshiri making poor ‘Football Manager’ choice amid Bielsa links ByGreg O’Keeffe has slammed Farhad Moshiri’s managerial choices at Everton after the club were linked to Marcelo Bielsa. The Lowdown: Bielsa the number-one targetIt was reported pretty soon after Frank Lampard was sacked as Everton manager that the club were keen to appoint Bielsa as the Englishman’s successor, although could now be under threat. Reports started to emerge about Bielsa having concerns over the squad and if they would be good enough and physically up to the standard his tactics required, something O’Keeffe hinted at last night. Obviously, a great manager elsewhere, but I just don’t think he’s a fit for Everton – certainly not at the moment. There has rarely been stability in the dugout since Moshiri became majority shareholder at Everton in February 2016.

Home Arsenal News Arsenal: Leandro Trossard signing won’t affect transfer plans ByArsenal’s imminent signing of Leandro Trossard won’t affect their long-term transfer plans, claims Charles Watts. The Lowdown: Trossard’s arrivalThe Guardian has reported that Arsenal have secured a deal to sign the Belgium international from Premier League side Brighton & Hove Albion for a fee potentially rising to £26m. Mikel Arteta’s side moved in rapid time to lure the wantaway 28-year-old to the Emirates Stadium after it emerged that Trossard had fallen out with Roberto De Zerbi, leaving a move away looking inevitable. The Latest: Watts’ commentsFollowing the news of Trossard’s imminent arrival from the south coast, Watts said on his YouTube channel that he doesn’t expect the transfer to affect Arsenal’s long-term vision and their potential summer recruits. I also don’t think that this would stop Arsenal in the summer [from] going out and still spending big money on a younger winger, a more long-term thing – because Trossard is not necessarily just an out-and-out winger.12 days ago The Transfer Tavern

It is not that I have something to hide, simply that I feel the need for some privacy (Photo: iStock)Hi Chris,I have been told that partners are supposed to tell each other everything, even when they have only just started dating. But I also have this strong feeling that I need to keep some things private. Because my girlfriends tell me that talking about everything, often all night is what they love most about being in a relationship. It is not that I have something to hide, simply that I feel the need for some privacy. Nevertheless, it is still a good idea to avoid topics that your partner finds boring.3 months ago The Standard
