As Bayern München has announced a mysterious press conference this Friday morning, the rumors of Arsene Wenger taking the club intensified.The situation at Bayern München has become difficult for manager Niko Kovac, who is already imagined by the German media outside of the club and with Arsene Wenger taking his position.This Thursday there was an announcement from the club itself to all the news outlets in the country, where they called everyone for a mysterious press conference in which the manager will speak first.The odd part of all this will be that after Niko Kovac has spoken, both Uli Hoeness and Karl Heinz Rummenigge will also take the microphones and make an announcement to the media that attend the call.As soon as the announcement was made, the rumor of Arsene Wenger taking Niko Kovac’s position started to intensify and even Bild newspaper suggests that the Frenchman will be announced on Friday.We are obviously going to be hunting for any development on that press conference and we will report anything important that happens during and after it ends, there have been mysterious calls like this in the past that have pretty much always ended up in someone getting sacked or announced as the new boss at Bayern.Bayern Munich have summoned the media to a press conference for Friday at 12pm. Uli Hoeness, Karl-Heinz Rummenigge and Hasan Salihamidzic have something MAJOR to report.There are rumours suggesting that Arsène Wenger will become new FCB manager. #AFChttps://t.co/F1Oh88SVf8— Cannon Insider (@CannonInsider) October 18, 2018Niko Kovac has reached a point to where he may not be able to salvage the situation, as he has made enemies with some of the most important players in the club and he may not have a way to reverse the situation with some of them.The case of James Rodriguez is the most obvious, as Kovac has left the Colombian player on the bench in very important matches and the midfielder hasn’t responded very well to his decisions.The Bayern München board is convinced that Rodriguez is one of the best players in the world, they trust that he can take Bayern to win the Champions League if he gets enough participation throughout the season.Report: Bayern are held by Leipzig George Patchias – September 14, 2019 Bayern Munich was held to another draw, this time by RB Leipzig.Bayern Munich finds themselves in the unfamiliar position of sitting third in the…They were especially alarmed during the international break, when James demonstrated the special talent that he is with the incredible performance he offered against the United States in a friendly match playing for Colombia last week.Both Hoeness and Rummenigge, think that wasting a talent like James is a luxury that the club simply cannot afford and this latest decision to call for an emergency press conference could be their response to the situation between the player and the manager.🇫🇷 Arsene Wenger is ready. 👊 pic.twitter.com/qHug6XHuMz— SPORF (@Sporf) October 18, 2018The reality is that nobody knows what will happen in this press conference, but we can analyze what the board members have done in the past when something like this happens.Both Hoeness and Rummenigge are club legends who care very much about the institution, they are known for never hesitating when things are not working inside the club and the latest results for Bayern are bad enough to trigger a reaction from them in order to make the clock tick again for the German giants.Bayern München is one of four giant clubs that every season are candidates to win the Champions League, which is why getting results like the latest under Niko Kovac are usually good enough to get the man sacked.There are still no confirmations of Arsene Wenger taking the job, the management might not even be thinking about making any rash decisions this early in the season, but you can rest assured that we will be standing by to see what comes out of this very interesting and mysterious press conference on Friday Morning.Arsene Wenger to become Bayern Munich’s next head coach.

Former Arsenal defender Martin Keown has blasted the club’s January transfer policy amid reports Unai Emery will only be able to sign players on loan.Reports suggest that Emery will only be allowed to make permanent signings if the club can sell Mesut Ozil this month.The policy has not deterred Emery going after Barcelona midfielder Denis Suarez, although any deal to bring the former Villarreal midfielder to the Emirates will be a loan move with a view to a permanent move in the summer.With Arsenal sitting fifth on the Premier League standings and battling to secure a top-four spot, Keown admitted he is surprised by a “very weird situation” with the Gunners.“It’s a very weird situation at Arsenal,” he told talkSPORT on Thursday.Merson believes Arsenal should sign Sancho Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho might be the perfect player to play for the Gunners, according to former England international Paul Merson.“For the club to say they’re only allowed to loan players…”“This is the sixth-wealthiest club in the world! And we can’t buy a player in this transfer window?”“I think that’s astonishing.”

The first, above average compared to what?“City workers don’t leave. It’s not like the private sector. The private sector has a turnover, even high-quality companies have a turnover. That’s two, three times higher than government,” Rider said.Yet, Rider said the private sector is doing well.The second reason is Rider likens the pay hikes to a ratchet situation.“It goes up for people who are above average in turnover and the people below average still get an overpriced salary, we know it’s overpriced cause nobody leaves,” he said.Except for the cops who had legitimate retention issues, Rider said the turnover rate is not a problem across the workforce.The cops were kept under the old, and lucrative pension system, yet they too were given raises up to 30 percent between this July and 2020.Six hundred other city workers will get raises from two percent to 30 percent in 2019 and 2020, on top of the 3.3 percent raise coming this July.“Basically because the city council is beholding to the public employee labor unions, when you get honest about it that’s really what’s in play here,” Rider said.The pay hikes will put pressure on the city budget, at a time when the city’s five-year plan is showing deficits.“It will reduce services because as our city workforce becomes more and more expensive, and the unfunded liability continues to grow, which it is,” Rider added.The pension debt has grown from $2 billion to $2.8 billion over the last two years.And the taxpayer’s annual contribution is also growing. It was about $50 million 15 years ago. This July’s payment will be $323 million.

A sports field complex in Hazel Dell will be named in memory of Luke Jensen, who was first diagnosed with leukemia in 2007 and died last May at the age of 9.The name “Luke Jensen Sports Park,” which was recommended in February by the Vancouver-Clark Parks and Recreation Advisory Committee, was approved Tuesday by the Clark County Commissioners. Luke attended King’s Way Christian Schools, where his father, Steve, serves as a principal.The 20-acre sports field site sits on the north side of Northeast 78th Street, next to the schools.The advisory committee recommended the name after nearly 4,000 people voted on seven potential names. About 95 percent of the votes were in favor of naming the park after Luke.Commissioner Marc Boldt, who joined Commissioners Tom Mielke and Steve Stuart in approving the name, said after the meeting that the sports fields will be a great tribute.Boldt’s wife, Dawn, is one of Steve Jensen’s cousins, so Boldt knew Luke.“He was enthusiastic, and he enjoyed life,” Boldt said. During the young boy’s long illness, he remained thoughtful of others and was always appreciative when extended family and friends came to visit, Boldt said.

Dzhokhar Tsarnaev BOSTON — Lawyers for Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev will ask a judge to discuss the timeline and procedure for prosecutors to decide whether to seek the death penalty.A joint status report filed in court says the defense wants the court to address “the death penalty protocol” in federal court on Monday.U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder will ultimately make the decision about whether to seek the federal death penalty, but the U.S. attorney’s office in Boston will make a recommendation. Tsarnaev’s attorneys also have the right to make the case against the death penalty.Tsarnaev, 20, is accused in twin bombings that killed three people and injured more than 260 others at the April 15 marathon. He’s also accused of killing a Massachusetts Institute of Technology police officer while on the run three days later.Prosecutors say Tsarnaev and his brother, Tamerlan, built and planted pressure cooker bombs near the finish line of the marathon.Tamerlan Tsarnaev, 26, died following a shootout with police several days later. Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was wounded in the shootout and later captured hiding in a bloodstained boat in a suburban backyard after a manhunt that paralyzed much of the Boston area. He has pleaded not guilty to 30 federal charges, including using a weapon of mass destruction resulting in death and 16 other charges that carry the possibility of the death penalty.
BOSTON (AP) — There’s no shortage of places for people to share memories of where they were 50 years ago when they found out John F. Kennedy had been assassinated. But a new website debuting Monday aims to take the focus from past to future by asking people of all ages — even those who weren’t alive when Kennedy died — to share their thoughts about how he has inspired them.The website, www.anidealiveson.org, is part of the JFK Library and Museum’s commemoration of the 50th anniversary of JFK’s death, which is Friday. The museum also plans a new exhibit of never-before-displayed items from his three-day state funeral, including the flag that draped his casket and notes written by First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy.Visitors to the “An Idea Lives On” site can explore an interactive video that includes NASA Commander Chris Cassidy, former Massachusetts Gov. Michael Dukakis, comedian Conan O’Brien, Freedom Rider Charles Person and others talking about Kennedy’s lasting impact.The Kennedy Library Foundation, a nonprofit that raises money to support the library, is spearheading the project. The foundation hopes visitors will upload their own photos, videos, written messages and tweets to answer the question “How do the ideals of John F. Kennedy live on in your life today?”“It’s ambitious,” said Tom McNaught, the foundation’s executive director. “He was an ambitious president. In a way that’s how we see this. You can’t stop trying to instill in young people the ideas he instilled in my generation.”
