first_imgONLY the fourth game of the season.A long way to go.3 With so much at stake, Pochettino and Emery might be happy with a point eachCredit: Getty – ContributorYet even before the first international break of the new campaign, Sunday’s North London derby – one of the most ferocious and dirtiest derbies in football – feels like it means so much more.Not just a game that both Arsenal and Spurs are desperate to win.But one in which defeat would reverberate for weeks, maybe months, to come.And a match that could, indeed, shape the way the whole of the rest of the campaign and the battle for the top four places plays out.Tottenham’s horror show home upset by Newcastle last weekend has definitely upped the stakes for Mauricio Pochettino – who has denied “stupid  rumours” he will quit after Sunday – and his men.Senior figures at Spurs were angered, outraged and infuriated by speculation the Argentine is ready to walk, win or lose, after Sunday.In truth, that seems an unlikely prospect.After all, if Christian Eriksen does leave for PSG in a £90million move by Monday’s European deadline, it will have been something Pochettino has been preparing for all summer, one of the reasons he was so keen to bring in Giovani Lo Celso.ACCA WITH LADBROKES Pick up a whole load of acca features to help you land the big oneBut there is no question that Tottenham, so long a happy ship under Pochettino’s demanding reign, are wobbling.And on the verge of suffering something far more demoralising if they fail again at the home of their greatest rivals.The vast majority of Tottenham fans cannot get their heads round Pochettino’s refusal to select Jan Vertonghen – who is being targeted by Bayer Leverkusen – for any of the first three games of the campaign.It appears that the issue is the Belgian’s physical condition and application in training.Yet most Spurs supporters would rather see him alongside Toby Alderweireld, adding natural balance and a long-term understanding to a rocky back line, than Davinson Sanchez.For many of them, it is further evidence of Pochettino’s intransigence, reminiscent of the way he froze out, not just Kyle Walker in 2017, but Alderweireld the following season, the likes of Nabil Bentaleb and Andros Townsend before that and, more recently, Vincent Janssen.SPURS ARE WOBBLINGMost of the time, of course, Pochettino has been vindicated.He may feel the need to start Eriksen at The Emirates and has Dele Alli available too.Heung-min Son will definitely be sharper for having had 90 minutes under his belt and Lo Celso is seeking to find his sharpness. Maybe Harry Kane will be in better nick, as well.Yet Spurs make the short trip along the Seven Sisters Road as underdogs. Big underdogs.Unsurprisingly, in truth. After all, they have only won twice in the League at Arsenal since the formation of the Prem – the initial meeting in May 1993 and the comeback win from two down under Harry Redknapp in 2010.Arsenal fans do not need reminding of that fact. Nor do the Spurs supporters.3 Dele Alli and Heung-min Son could be crucial for TottenhamCredit: Getty Images – GettyIndeed, in recent seasons, the Emirates has been a chastening venue, Spurs’ pretensions and expectations swiftly doused and destroyed.Add in the fact that Pochettino is without Tanguy Ndombele and likely to have to field Moussa Sissoko at right-back – the alternative is Eric Dier – and there is pressure on Unai Emery, too.Arsenal may have salvaged some pride with their last few minutes at Liverpool but the first 80 or so were less impressive, especially defensively.This is a game where David Luiz, brutally exposed against Spurs when in a Chelsea shirt at Wembley last season, has to stand up and be counted for his new manager.Emery’s judgement on the Brazilian, no question, is on trial – especially after the horror show against Liverpool.They did win the first two games, against Newcastle and Burnley, yet neither display was particularly convincing.Emery has to decide whether this is the time to unleash his three most potent attacking talents – Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Alexandre Lacazette and Nicolas Pepe – in a trident for the first time.Spurs’ defensive vulnerabilities, especially if it is Sissoko alongside Sanchez on the right, suggest it is.And yet, after all the build-up, if Emery crashes and burns on Sunday, it will, for many, feel like Ground Zero all over again. That, for all the talking of the talk, Arsenal are unable to walk the walk.3Latest Arsenal newsLive BlogGunners newsArsenal news LIVE – Latest updates from the EmiratesCONT ME OUTArsenal’s Lacazette ‘not interested’ in joining Inter as Martinez’s replacementGossipINTERESTED PARTEYArsenal ‘most interested’ in Thomas Partey but coronavirus delays talksGUNNER GOLuiz ‘has to go’, Saliba ‘a concern’ and Mustafi not at right ‘level’, says KeownAT YOUR BOC AND CALLTorreira reveals ‘dream and desire’ to one day play for Boca JuniorsWRIGHTY’S OUTRAGEIan Wright says video of George Floyd’s death in US left him ‘drained’A win, for either manager, will be a triumph and a vindication, combined.Likewise, defeat will not just sting.

first_imgThe rescue helicopter takes the injured man fro Errigal. Pic by Patrick McClafferty for Donegal Daily.This is the dramatic moment a rescue helicopter lifted a young trainee teacher off Errigal after he tumbled 50 metres down the side of the mountain.The student from St Patrick’s Teacher Training College in Dublin fell and tumbled down a steep shale slope last evening.The 19 year old from Co Monaghan was with another trainee teacher on a week-long break to improve their language skills at a local Irish College. The young men began climbing the 2,464 ft mountain at 5pm but disaster struck at 7pm when one of the men took a serious fall.Patrick McClafferty caught this stunning picture of the rescue.The injured man tumbled and as well as receiving severe cuts and bruises to his legs and body, he also suffered a dislocated shoulder.The teenager’s companion called the emergency services who responded immediately. The emergency rescue helicopter was dispatched from its base in Sligo.However upon arrival the casualty could not be airlifted from the dangerous area where the young man had fallen.Members of the Donegal Mountain Rescue team were then called into action and had to move the man to a safer area where he could be extracted from the mountain.Joseph Brennan of the Donegal Mountain Rescue said it was a very tricky rescue.“Because of the area where the young man had fallen is covered in scree, he could not be winched out of there. “There was a fear that the blades of the helicopter may have struck the rocks and we just couldn’t take that chance.“It was just one of those very awkward operations. While it was a lovely evening, it was blowing a gale at the summit of the mountain.“We eventually got to him and brought him to another location where he was then airlifted to safety,” he revealed.The man is currently recovering at Sligo General Hospital where he was transferred from Letterkenny General Hospital while his companion was checked but did not receive any injuries. Mr Brennan said the lads did nothing wrong but the incident showed how quickly a situation can change in the “blink of an eye.”“The lads left to climb the mountain at 5pm which isn’t too late and it was a lovely evening.“But unfortunately one of them took a tumble and it just shows how everything can change in the blink of an eye.“He tumbled up to 50 metres but thankfully he managed to protect his head before he came to a stop.“His friend then managed to scramble to him and comforted him until the emergency services arrived.“What should have been a nice climb up and down in a few hours ended up with one of them being taken from the mountain at 11pm and then being hospitalised.“However the good news is that the lads will recover and all the rescue services came together for what was a prolonged but successful rescue,” he said.He also advised people to prepare when climbing a mountain by wearing the proper clothing, footwear and to bring a bar of chocolate and always a mobile phone.THE DRAMATIC MOMENT STUDENT WAS LIFTED FROM ERRIGAL AFTER 50 METRE FALL was last modified: April 22nd, 2014 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)Tags:Donegal Mountain RescueErrigalfallhelicopterlast_img read more
