Wilshere charged with misconduct

first_img Arsenal issued a swift apology from the studio presenter during their live in-house media broadcast of the event, while on Monday, Wilshere apologised if his actions had caused any offence and was spoken to by Arsenal staff about the issue. However, after themselves having warned Wilshere following similar comments during the 2014 celebrations, it is understood the latest outburst prompted the formal disciplinary action from the FA, which may well result in a significant financial penalty. A statement from the FA read: “Jack Wilshere has been charged with misconduct in relation to Arsenal’s FA Cup celebrations on Sunday 31 May 2015. “It is alleged his conduct in making and/or inciting certain comments during the club’s open bus trophy tour was improper and/or brought the game into disrepute. “The player has until 6pm on 10 June 2015 to respond to the charge.” Many thousands of Arsenal fans had braved the rain to cheer the squad as they went on open-top buses from the Emirates Stadium to Islington Town Hall, celebrating the club’s record 12th FA Cup victory after successfully retaining the trophy with a 4-0 win over Aston Villa at Wembley on Saturday. As the players were later presented to supporters back at the stadium, Wilshere took the microphone and said: “I have one question, and one question only: what do we think of Tottenham?”… before adding: “And what do we think of s***?”, then joining in as the crowd sang back: “We hate Tottenham and we hate Tottenham… we are the Tottenham haters.” Wilshere, who is set to join up with England this week for the June internationals, received support from fans, with the chair of the Arsenal Independent Supporters Association claiming the player’s outburst showed that he “totally understands what it is to be an Arsenal supporter”. Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere could face a fine from the Football Association after being charged with misconduct following his foul-mouthed, anti-Tottenham chants during the FA Cup victory parade on Sunday. However, former Gunners striker Niall Quinn said Wilshere had “overstepped the mark”. While falling short of saying sorry for making the remarks, Wilshere used a Twitter post to apologise to anyone who had been upset by them. “Sharing back2back Cup wins with so many amazing Gooners is a dream come true. Apologies if I upset or offended any of u with my celebrations,” he wrote. On the pitch, Arsenal are expected to return from their summer break a stronger unit as manager Arsene Wenger targets a sustained assault on the Barclays Premier League title following back-to-back FA Cup triumphs. Arsenal are intent on improving the squad over the summer, with Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech one transfer target said to be keen to secure a switch across London to the Emirates Stadium. Full-back Nacho Monreal, meanwhile, wants to stay at the club despite interest from Athletic Bilbao. Out-of-favour German striker Lukas Podolski, though, could be set to join Galatasaray, having spent the second half of the season on loan at Inter Milan. England midfielder James Milner is another on Arsenal’s radar, but has been also strongly linked with a free transfer move to Liverpool once his contract expires at Manchester City. The 23-year-old, who came through the Gunners’ youth ranks, took to the microphone to mock the club’s fierce rivals as the players celebrated on a stage outside the Emirates Stadium. In similar scenes to 12 months ago, Wilshere then proceeded to lead the massed ranks of Arsenal supporters in a chant which included expletives against Spurs, who again finished below their north London neighbours in the Barclays Premier League table.

McInerney creates scoring opportunities for Orange in victory over Golden Flashes

first_img Published on September 17, 2012 at 2:13 am Contact Jasmine: jlwatk01@syr.edu Facebook Twitter Google+ Liz McInerney was virtually everywhere in Syracuse’s game against Kent State on Sunday. The midfielder scored a goal, but it was her ability to feed her teammates passes that proved to be her more important contribution.She assisted Lauren Brooks, Jordan Page and Iona Holloway on their goals to help the Orange cruise to a 7-1 victory.“It’s pretty easy when the forwards are moving well,” McInerney said. “They were always in the right place at the right time, so we just worked well together today.”Head coach Ange Bradley said she noticed the consistency of her players in this game, but also recognized how much McInerney meant to Syracuse’s win.“She’s just Liz, she’s special,” Bradley said. “Always a hard worker and just does great things out there.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textMcInerney took seven of SU’s 33 shots, outshooting Kent State as an entire team, which took only two. That resulted largely from the grittiness of the Syracuse defense, which has been mostly responsible for the Orange’s undefeated start to its season.“Coming into the weekend we were No. 1 in defense in the country,” Bradley said.Syracuse’s offense was consistent throughout the game, and McInerney repeatedly worked to find scoring opportunities for her and her teammates. The Orange played hard in both halves, which Bradley said the team didn’t do against Villanova on Friday.Coming back from halftime on Sunday, the Orange remained in attack mode. Less than a minute into the second half, McInerney scored her second goal of the season on an unassisted shot from the top of the circle.“Coach always tells us to come out strong,” McInerney said. “She usually wants a goal in the first two minutes.”McInerney also remained vocal on the field throughout the game — a tactic the team says helps it play better as a whole. Even when McInerney was substituted out of the game, she could still be heard encouraging and instructing from the sideline.“We all try to communicate, and that makes for good chemistry while we’re playing,” McInerney said.With the two big wins at home, the Orange will now go on the road, hoping to remain as mentally tough as it was Sunday while also putting up the same dominant effort on both ends of the field.“I think we have a good fan base and a lot of people in the area, so they’ll be coming in to support us,” Bradley said. “We just have to keep playing hockey, doesn’t matter where we’re playing, we know what our goals are.”When Syracuse goes on the road, it’ll be crucial that McInerney continues her strong play for the Orange to continue its winning streak.McInerney said she’s already looking forward to the test of this upcoming road trip and thinking about how the team can continue this stellar play.Said McInerney: “This week will be a really big week for us, so hopefully we can continue the momentum and keep playing well.” Commentslast_img read more

Alumni digitally release film

first_imgProdigy, a feature film co-directed and written by USC alumni Alex Haughey and Brian Vidal, was digitally released March 13 on several platforms including Amazon and iTunes.USC alumni Alex Haughey (left) and Brian Vidal (right), who directed and wrote Prodigy, met in a general education course while they were attending USC as undergraduates. Photo courtesy of Alex Haughey.The sci-fi story revolves around a psychologist who works under a private sector of the military and is assigned to a nine-year-old patient with supernatural powers. Throughout the film, the psychologist dissects more about the patient’s intelligence and the truth behind her powers.“For me, [the film] was always been about exploring the idea of guilt and what happens when we don’t allow ourselves to let go of that guilt [and] the kind of monsters we can become if we continue that path,” Vidal said. “I would hope someone watching the film would ultimately come out of it, feeling ‘Hey, when things seem hopeless, there is hope still there.’”The actors had to put in a conscious effort to mask their own emotions in response to the events in Prodigy during filming.“[It was difficult] to keep my sort of compassionate and empathetic stance throughout and to not react with any sort of frustration in anger, because there is a lot of frustration that can ensue during the course of the film,” said Richard Neil, one of the actors in the film.The crew had to overcome substantial adversity to produce the film, Haughey said. They had to take on multiple roles due to their limited budget and small size. While co-directing and writing the screenplay, Haughey was additionally tasked with producing and casting while Vidal worked on editing.Vidal and Haughey met in a general education course while studying for their undergraduate degrees at USC. Since then, they have worked in and out of the film industry, picking up short films and other job opportunities.“I didn’t know what cinematography meant [before going to USC],” Vidal said. “I didn’t actually understand any of the concepts, it was all just me going with stuff that was interesting. I didn’t have any sort of technical craft that went alongside with that original inspiration. So I think USC took that raw, natural ability and formed that into something where decisions can be made about things on set.”Vidal and Haughey had worked together before Prodigy. Their first feature film premiered last March at the Cinequest Film Festival.“I think that the best part of this whole process was that we took this film to festivals,” Haughey said. “We finally got it done and took it to festivals, where the audience didn’t know anything about it the film. To see them react to the moments, the scenes, and the overall arc of the story that we tried so hard to get right for the people, was unlike anything I’ve experienced before.”last_img read more
