Never. Never saw anything,’ the former Arsenal striker said.‘I’d love to say Martin Keown did just so I could wind him up but not even he made many mistakes. ‘At this stage of David Luiz’s career and where Arsenal are going – and it was unfortunate for Pablo Mari tonight – but I’d probably have to agree with Dicko there.

Wrighty [Ian Wright] would be playing him all day, standing in certain areas and making him uncomfortable. And even if Wrighty didn’t get a kick, he’d know he would get one chance and probably score that chance. ‘So as a striker playing against him, it doesn’t matter how bad you’re playing or how well he’s playing, you’re always in the game because you fancy your chances that he’s going to give you something.’ Rio Ferdinand tells Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to drop struggling Read More Skip Ad About Connatix V67539 Manchester United captain Harry Maguire Visit Advertiser website GO TO PAGE / Read More Read More During his candid post-match interview with Sky Sports, Luiz accepted the blame for the loss and admitted he should have made an earlier decision over his contract situation, with his current deal due to expire later this month.Reacting to the defeat, ex-Arsenal right-back Dixon told Premier League Productions: ‘It was men against boys. If you’re going to stand a chance against Manchester City you’ve got to play really well, you’ve got to hope they don’t play so well and you’ve got to keep all your men on the pitch. ‘And, unfortunately, with David Luiz there’s always a chance of him either making mistake or getting himself sent off and he did double tonight so it was a poor night in the end for Arsenal for City were brilliant.’ The Brazil international took the blame for Arsenal’s defeat after the final whistle (Picture: Getty)Luiz was given his marching orders by referee Michael Oliver and De Bruyne slotted past Bernd Leno with the resulting penalty before Phil Foden but the icing on the cake for City with a close-range strike at the death.

first_imgThe Clean Up Politics Campaign founder Tim Jackson with King of Tory Patsy Dan Rogers.The Clean Up Politics campaign has won regal favour this week with Patsy Dan, King of Tory Island, calling it a “much needed wake-up call for our politicians.” Visiting Tory to promote the campaign, Tim Jackson, the Ballybofey-based founder of Clean Up Politics, was warmly welcomed by the islanders, with the King expressing full support for the initiative.As part of the Clean Up Politics campaign, candidates at the next General Election will be asked to adopt four policy points concerning their earnings. They are:– Salaries should be reduced from €90k to €45k– Expenses must be fully vouched, with receipts made publicly available– Pensions will be reduced in line with the current public service rate– €13m p/a funding of political parties will ceaseHighlighting Sinn Féin’s recent electoral promise to reduce TD’s salaries by 20% from the current €90,000, Jackson remarked that the move made little sense, since each Sinn Féin TD claims to only take home one third of their salary anyway.“The only explanation I can see is that Sinn Féin don’t want to cut TD salaries in half because the party couldn’t then keep the savings for themselves, as they currently do at the expense of the taxpayer. I would prefer to see all parties make an honest, comprehensive attempt to address this issue, rather than peddle empty promises of token reform.” EVEN DONEGAL’S KING WANTS IRISH POLITICS CLEANED UP was last modified: August 24th, 2015 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more
