Mikel Arteta plays down suggestions Arsenal players will want to relegate Watford as ‘revenge’ on Troy Deeney

first_imgAdvertisement The Watford skipper has been openly critical of Arsenal’s players in the past (Picture: Getty Images)Mikel Arteta has played down suggestions that Arsenal’s players will be extra motivated against Watford due to comments Troy Deeney has made about them in the past.The Gunners have nothing to play for going into the final Premier League match of the season – with European qualification now hinging on winning the FA Cup final – while Watford need to better Aston Villa’s result to stay up.But plenty of Arsenal fans are hoping they can have the last laugh over Deeney and Watford and still remember his infamous barb in 2017 when he claimed the side lacked ‘cojones’. Mikel Arteta plays down suggestions Arsenal players will want to relegate Watford as ‘revenge’ on Troy Deeney Deeney has suggested that Arsenal do not like physical battles against him (Picture: Getty)Arteta was not at the club three years ago, but a number of players in the squad were, though Arteta does not believe they will have revenge on the agenda and were not truly affected by the remarks.AdvertisementAdvertisementADVERTISEMENTAsked if Arsenal’s players will want to send Watford down after Deeney’s comments, Arteta replied: ‘No, I think revenge, or when you are annoyed and when you want to put things right, it’s probably because you feel that what is being said is right.‘If you don’t feel it is right, then it doesn’t justify the way you approach the game or the way you fight, it doesn’t have to affect you.‘So I think that is a very personal thing.’More: Arsenal FCArsenal flop Denis Suarez delivers verdict on Thomas Partey and Lucas Torreira movesThomas Partey debut?

Every player is free to say whatever they want, so I cannot comment on every opinion.’On whether his side will be 100% focused on the game despite having nothing to play for, Arteta said: ‘That’s the way we will prepare the game, that’s for sure. We need to know the responsibility we have towards the other clubs as well and the responsibility we have just wearing that shirt in any game. It has to be to win the football game and prepare.

A strong side doesn’t mean that players who have played less participate, for me it’s more about how we approach the game and how you get into that game to win the game. There is no 50:50s, no lack of intensity or anything like that. We can’t do that.’MORE: Future captain?

first_imgJack hard at work perfecting chocolate at Mondelez’s R&D centre in BournvilleName: Jack RogersAge: 22Job title: TechnicianCompany: Mondelez UK R&D, BirminghamEducation: Level 2 professional bakery course at University College Birmingham Explain your job to us in a sentence (or two)I’m a chocolate technician at Mondelez International’s Cadbury Factory in Bournville, just outside Birmingham. I work in research and development, producing chocolate samples on our refiner lines. My job is to perfect existing products and help design the products of the future.Why did you decide to go for a career in food?I’m passionate about food and drink and knew it was a thriving industry that I wanted to be a part of. The sector has limitless learning opportunities providing a broad platform for me to build upon and grow my career.Tell us about how you went about applying for your job. What was the process?What really decided my future was attending a Mondelez International workshop whilst I was studying at UCB. The workshop advertised a new program called ‘The Technical Academy Placement’. Two successful candidates from the workshop would go onto a two-year apprenticeship at Mondelez. I made sure I applied as I knew it was a massive opportunity I couldn’t afford to miss – and here I am today! Jack and colleagues show Defra minister George Eustice how to make chocolate at Birmingham’s Big Bang FairWhat’s the best part about working for a food company?There are lots of perks, including sampling chocolate and new products before they hit shelves. My role means I take a lot of pride in seeing new products I’ve tested and worked on being enjoyed by friends and family. Mondelez is a brilliant company to work for they expose you to so many fantastic opportunities. In my time here I’ve been fortunate to have been able to teach MPs at the Houses of Parliament how we make chocolate and hosted chocolate demonstrations at the Big Bang Fair in Birmingham.And what’s the biggest misconception people have about working in food & drink?People don’t appreciate the science and technology involved in making foodPeople think I work in hospitality. They don’t appreciate the science and technology involved in making food. They think it’s all burger and chips!What advice would you give to other young people looking to get into the food & drink industry?Consider an apprenticeship. Look beyond traditional career paths. Many companies, including Mondelez, have graduate schemes and apprenticeships in manufacturing, R&D and even finance. Ask questions. Be curious, motivated and enthusiastic about the industry, and be prepared to learn and discover every working day.What’s your ultimate career dream?I’m really proud to have achieved my goal of gaining a permanent job within Mondelez following my apprenticeship. Now I want to develop within R&D.

Parcel of FNQ island can be yours for $1.8 million

first_imgZuna island, Torres Strait Pic : suppliedIT is fodder for the most outlandish of dreams: owning a parcel of an idyllic island off the Far North Queensland coast.But reveries could become a tropical reality for a bold investor.A 4050sq m slice of Zuna Island, near Thursday Island in the Torres Strait, is currently listed for $1.8 million.The beachfront property comprises a modern house and neighbouring bungalow, which together can sleep up to 10 people.“It’s not for everybody, but those who live up there absolutely love it – we’re looking for the right type of person, who has a sense of adventure and loves the Far North,” said Jillian Raleigh, selling agent for the property’s owner Russel Williams. Mr Williams was living in Kalgoorlie, Western Australia, when the idea of owning a Zuna Island property was born after seeing an advertisement on the internet.“There was nothing but a shack there. There were no services, power and water supply was non-existent,” he told News Corp Australia. “Even though it was pretty humble I saw the potential. I wanted an escape, a retreat.” The 1000ha island is accessible by air and water from Thursday Island and Horn Islands, both of which are nearby. More from newsCairns home ticks popular internet search terms3 days agoTen auction results from ‘active’ weekend in Cairns3 days agoThe property has a main residence and nearby bungalow.Both the main residence and bungalow are fully furnished.“The Torres Strait is Australia’s best-kept secret,” Mr Williams said.“There are more islands here than the Whitsundays, but fewer people. “It’s one of Australia’s best areas for fishing, snorkelling and diving. “The whole pace is so different; it’s laid-back, colourful and the people are so welcoming.“When people come and visit me here they see the wow factor.”It is understood several people have expressed interest in the property.The Zuna Island offering is among several islands off Queensland currently on the market. The Duke Group Archipelago, comprising three separate islands off Central Queensland, is listed for almost $12 million.

In comparison, Sydney saw 21.3 per cent of units sell for $1m or more in the year to June.It’s those sorts of figures that have spurred an influx of interstate buyers on the hunt for property investments in the third biggest capital.CoreLogic’s Australian research head Cameron Kusher said bracket creep was no longer a surprise in Sydney and Melbourne where values surged 77 per cent and 61 per cent in the past five years.Million-dollar sales: 10 Grattan Terrace, Wynnum, sold for $1m on the dot on August 8, 2017.

Meanwhile, the proportion of units selling for at least $1m has increased to 3.5 per cent of all sales in June 2017, up from 3.2 per cent a year earlier.last_img read more
