*DISCLAIMER: Like Arsenal winning the Champions League, these subtitles are entirely fictional.Radamel Falcao is on his way to Chelsea Football Club and we have scooped everyone with the first officially made up interview with the new Blues striker.Seated alongside his new (and old) strike partner, Diego Costa, Falcao gives his thoughts on how he plans to take the Spaniard/Brazilian’s place in the team when Costa gets sent off.Meanwhile, Costa likens Falcao to a fat Michael Jackson and chats up a lady in the audience.Unbelievable!
AZ Alkmaar technical director Max Huiberts has rubbished claims that Tottenham overpaid for Vincent Janssen.The striker moved to White Hart Lane from the Dutch side in the summer for an initial transfer fee of £17m.So far, the 22-year-old has failed to live up to that price tag and he has just one goal for his new club.But despite his sticky start, Huiberts does not believe that Tottenham blundered by paying a such a big fee for Janssen and has backed him to come good in England.“It was said that it was ridiculous that we asked for more than £10m for Vincent because he plays for AZ. But then I think, why?” Huiberts told club magazine AZ Spreekt.“He is the top scorer in the Netherlands and the number one striker for the Oranje. Vincent had already reached the top in the Eredivisie.“I am sure that he will adapt quickly to the level of the Premier League.” Vincent Janssen in action for Tottenham 1

Arsenal have yet to officially confirm the deal for Aubameyang but it appears now certain he will arrive at the Emirates.He was at the Gunners’ training ground on Tuesday to thrash out terms after Dortmund accepted a bid of around £60million from the Premier League club. Arsenal’s media team appear to have unwittingly confirmed the signing of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.A video of an interview with Arsene Wenger speaking of his delight at the deal was posted on the club’s official website overnight before quickly being taken down.In the clip [below], an interviewer asks Wenger: “Aubameyang is an Arsenal player, you must be delighted to get the deal done?”The Frenchman, speaking after his side’s 3-1 defeat at Swansea, then responded: “Yes, it’s good news.“We need people who can give us more offensive power. We aren’t efficient enough going forward. I’m convinced he will bring us that.“He has a big challenge in front of him, he wants to win the Premier League.” 1 Umm… #Arsenal have posted the wrong video on their website and accidentally confirmed the #Aubameyang signing… #AFC pic.twitter.com/WqUiB6jwZL— Tom (@TomCIarke) January 31, 2018 Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang
Motherwell have accused Celtic fans of vandalising Fir Park during their Scottish Premiership clash on Wednesday evening.In a statement the club say they are investigating the travelling support for breaking more than 200 seats in the away end, damaging toilets and graffitiing the South Stand.They have also confirmed they have contacted the Scottish FA over the standard of refereeing in their last two clashes with Brendan Rodgers’ side.Motherwell conceded a controversial penalty in each of their meetings this week, firstly to Scott Sinclair in the League Cup final on Sunday and then Callum McGregor in Wednesday’s Scottish Premiership clash. Motherwell say they will take appropriate action against any individual that is found to have acted unacceptably.Focusing on all three subject matters, the club have stated: “Whilst everyone in football accepts match officials have a challenging role, and getting everything correct is almost impossible, it is disappointing to see high profile decisions affect both Wednesday night’s match and the League Cup final in the way they have.“To that end, we have made contact with the Scottish FA’s Head of Refereeing to express our views and seek feedback. “In addition, the board would like to thank our fans for yet another strong turnout and for their backing of the team. Our average attendances are up almost 30% this season as Stephen Robinson and his squad continue to capture the imagination. “However, we also note the comments of the Celtic captain today. As we do at every match at Fir Park, if any incidents are reported to us, we will fully investigate them. Should any evidence exist, we will take appropriate action against any individuals who have acted unacceptably. “In addition, we will work with Celtic Football Club to fully investigate, amongst other things, the numerous acts of vandalism, including 206 broken seats, damaged toilets and graffiti in the South Stand.” In addition, they have noted Scott Brown’s complaints that home fans threw objects at the Celtic players and say they are investigating his claims.The Celtic captain accused rival supporters of throwing coins at his side on a weekly basis and said it happened again at Fir Park on Wednesday.Despite the headlines focusing on the controversial late penalty that salvaged a share of the points for Celtic, Brown said there were more pressing issues to address.Speaking on Wednesday afternoon he said: “You take a corner and you have to look over your shoulder to see what’s coming. Eventually someone will get hit in the head with a coin but until that happens probably nothing will be done about it.”
But the former Trinidad & Tobago striker has his fingers crossed the New Douglas Park prospects can make the most of their chance to shine.“It’s great for the club,” he said. “I think it’s history in the making.“Hopefully, we can go and do well. It will be a great experience for me as a coach, a great experience for the club, to play for the first time in the Youth League.“It will be tough but hopefully the boys can give a good account of themselves.” Hamilton’s youngsters will make history on Wednesday when they face Basel in UEFA Youth League action.The first leg in Switzerland against a much-fancied Basel outfit will be Accies first ever European fixture. It’s a reward for the Lanarkshire side’s latest crop of talents storming to the Under 17 Elite Performance title last season.Youth coach Jason Scotland knows his side face a real challenge mixing it with the big guns of Europe for the first time. Talented teenage midfielder Charlie Reilly is aiming to do the club proud in what is the biggest game of his career to date.He said: “It’s going to be the biggest moment, probably for most of our careers.“To make the club proud, that’s what we’re wanting to do.Winger Lewis Smith, 18, added: “It’s a really proud moment. Obviously, growing up, you don’t expect Hamilton to be in Europe.“But the boys have done amazing to get there and hopefully we can do our best and compete in a great competition.”

Doherty said, “The retail industry of this country is currently under siege from online hackers with what seems like a system compromise occurring every other week.”Highlighting the cyber security discussion, Ronald Plesco presented a digital disaster workshop which focused on how the advancement of technology is fundamentally changing cyber warfare and the targets hackers prey upon. Mr. Plesco provided real-life examples of instances where user identity and company security had been compromised through intrusions across a wide array of channels including cell phones, email accounts and wifi access points at public locations like hotels. The workshop helped the security professionals in attendance build an understanding of the foundations and contingency plans they will need to put in place when their organization suffers a data breach.- Sponsor – At the event, James D’Arcy of the Great A&P Tea Company was honored with the joint NJFC and NJRMA Loss Prevention Professional Award for his outstanding contributions to the loss prevention industry as chair of the Loss Prevention Conference Planning Committee, Vice Chair of the NJFC Loss Prevention Committee and for creating the NJFC Loss Prevention Scholarship Program.
