Arteta dig at Spurs as he claims trophyless Kane proves Aubameyang is world class

first_imgMIKEL ARTETA took a completely unprovoked swipe at Tottenham as he attempted to prove Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is world class.Gary Neville recently revealed the Arsenal star isn’t considered a Premier League great due to his lack of silverware.2 Arteta has taken a swipe at Spurs to prove Aubameyang is world-classBut Arteta roared back, claiming if Harry Kane is considered to be a Premier League great despite playing for trophy-shy Spurs, the Aubameyang should be thought of similarly.In reference to his lack of trophies at Arsenal, Neville had claimed: “[Aubameyang is] not mentioned as world class.”We don’t mention him as a Premier League great, but I think we have to.”When told of this, Arteta hit back – using trophy-shy arch-rivals Tottenham as the perfect example to prove why his own star is a true great.After hearing of Neville’s comments, the Gunners boss said: “Yeah, but Harry Kane has scored 30 goals and never won the Premier League, you know?“There are a lot of good examples of players that do phenomenally, but unfortunately there are a lot of top teams in this country and only one wins the league.”So you can’t have everything in life.“I think they do talk but obviously with top players who are playing at clubs that are winning constantly, there is more impact on that.“But we all know how good Auba is. It is remarkable what he is doing and how consistent he has been over the years to do it.”That is very, very difficult to do. I think we all appreciate, at least at the club, his value and what he brings to us.”MAKE YOUR DEBUT Bet £5 get £20 in free bets for new customers at LadbrokesAubameyang is currently the league’s joint-top-scorer, along with Jamie Vardy, having netted 17 times this season – one ahead of Sergio Aguero.Having worked closely with Aguero during his time as Pep Guardiola’s No2 at Manchester City, Arteta revealed he believes Aubameyang to be right up there with the Argentine legend.The Spaniard continued: “I wouldn’t like to compare but what I can say with Auba is that he’s right there with the best of the scorers in this league.“In the last ten years if you look at his record and what he’s done in the game it’s phenomenal. In my opinion he’s up there with the best.2MORE ARSENAL STORIESLive 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’HOMECOMINGDavid Luiz confirms Benfica talks with Arsenal contract set to expire in JuneGossipBERN IT UPMan Utd, Arsenal and Chelsea on alert after Bernardeschi reveals Prem plansPAIN IN THE ASSEArsenal lose out on starlet Aouchiche as he takes Saint-Etienne medicalLEW BEAUTYTeenage winger George Lewis, 19, signs Arsenal contract after successful trial“I think if he had been top scorer in the league, and won the league, then he would have been voted the best player in the league for sure.“You need both.

Romney Points To Mass Law To Defend Positions On Womens Health Issues

first_imgOn the eve of the Republican convention, GOP presumptive presidential nominee Mitt Romney embraced the health law he signed while governor of Massachusetts as evidence that he would protect women’s access to health care.   Politico: Romney Touts His Health Care PlanOn the eve of the Republican convention in Tampa, Fla., Mitt Romney abruptly embraced his Massachusetts health care law in response to President Barack Obama’s attacks that Republicans have declared a “war on women” (Gibson and Samuelsohn, 8/26).National Journal: Romney Says He’s Proud Of Mass. Health Care LawMitt Romney said he is “proud” of the health care plan he signed into law as governor of Massachusetts, and cited it as evidence that would protect women’s health as President in an interview on Fox News Sunday. “I’m the guy who was able to get health care for all the women and men in my state,” Romney said, adding that he, “did it without cutting Medicare and without raising taxes” (Mazmanian, 8/26).The Hill (Video): Romney Cites Mass. Law To Defend Stance On Women’s Health IssuesMitt Romney rebuffed Democratic suggestions that the GOP ticket was weak on women’s health issues by touting his Massachusetts healthcare reforms, in an interview with Fox News. In an interview taped last week and aired on Fox News Sunday, Romney was asked by host Chris Wallace how he answered “the Obama charge that they offer more support, more choice to women when it comes to abortion, rape, or birth control or women’s health.” “In regards to women’s healthcare, look I’m the guy who was able to get healthcare for all the women and men in my state,” said Romney (Mali, 8/26).CNN: Romney Says He’s ‘Very Proud’ Of Mass. Health Care LawRomney pointed to the health care law after being asked about Democratic-led attacks that accuse the GOP of launching a so-called war on women. “Look, I’m the guy that was able to get health care for all of the women and men in my state,” Romney said on Fox News. “They’re just talking about it at the federal level. We actually did something, and we did it without cutting Medicare and without raising taxes.” Romney rarely brings up the Bay State health care plan, given that it served in part as a blueprint for President Barack Obama’s sweeping health care reform, which Romney now says he would work to repeal (Killough, 8/26).CBS: Romney: Mass. Health Reform Helped Women Without Cutting MedicareMitt Romney on Sunday pointed to the health care reforms he implemented in Massachusetts as proof that his policies would benefit women, even as he blasted President Obama’s federal health care reforms. The difference between the two plans, Romney said, was that his Massachusetts reforms protected Medicare, the popular government health care program for seniors. “With regards to women’s health care, look, I’m the guy that was able to get health care for all of the women and men in my state,” Romney said on Fox News Sunday (Condon, 8/26).Meanwhile, Politico offered a hard look at a similarity between the Massachusetts health reforms measure and the 2010 health law – Politico: Mitt Romney’s Law Has An ‘Unelected Board’ TooMitt Romney is on the warpath against President Barack Obama’s “unelected board” of health care bureaucrats — but his own Massachusetts health care law has been blasted more than a few times for the same reason. It’s another reminder that, as much as Romney is trying to campaign against “Obamacare,” there’s almost always some similarity in “Romneycare” that can come back to bite him (Cheney, 8/24).
