The Spaniard seems unlikely to bring Ozil back into the team (Picture: HaytersTV / YouTube)Mikel Arteta has given little indication that he will bring Mesut Ozil back into Arsenal’s team for Saturday’s FA Cup semi-final clash with Manchester City despite the German declaring he is ‘ready’.Ozil has yet to make an appearance for the Gunners since the season was restarted, not even making the matchday squad in the last five Premier League games.Arsenal say Ozil has been struggling with ‘back soreness’ that has kept him out of the team, though the player himself appeared to rubbish that suggestion by writing ‘I AM READY’ in block capitals on the eve of Wednesday’s game against Liverpool. Ozil is back in training after his back problem but still can’t get in the squad (Picture: Getty)Once again, though, Ozil was left out of the squad – with Arsenal securing an unlikely 2-1 victory in his absence – and Arteta had a very icy response when asked about the 31-year-old ahead of Saturday’s trip to Wembley.AdvertisementAdvertisementADVERTISEMENTQuestioned on Ozil’s ‘ready’ message on social media, and whether he will be in the squad that takes on City, Arteta responded frostily: ‘Yeah he’s been training.’Probed further on whether that means Ozil is in the squad, Arteta continued: ‘I haven’t done the squad yet.

LifestyleTravel Fight over reclining seat diverts flight by: – June 2, 2011 29 Views no discussions Share Tweet Sharing is caring! (CNN) — Simmering air travel tensions bubbled over this weekend when a United Airlines passenger smacked a fellow flier over an unwelcome seat recline, The Washington Post reported.Air Force fighter jets escorted Ghana-bound United Airlines Flight 990 back to Washington Dulles International Airport after the fight broke out after takeoff Sunday night.The flight arrived back at Dulles at 12:35 a.m. Monday, according to United Airlines. Airline spokesman Mike Trevino said he could not confirm any details of what happened onboard.Sources told the Washington Post that not long after departing the airport, a passenger lowered his seat into the space of a fellow passenger and a fight followed. A flight attendant and another passenger tried to break up the scuffle, the report said.Is reclining your seat a right?Airport police met the flight at Dulles and determined that charges were not warranted, according to a spokeswoman for the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority.The flight was delayed until Monday, Trevino said. He did not know if the feuding passengers were onboard when it departed after the delay.The disagreement over seat reclining is not the first to get physical. In November, a disgruntled passenger grabbed a reclining flier’s right ear with enough force to knock his glasses off, according to a complaint filed in that case.By Marnie Hunter, CNN Share Share

Up next for the IMCA Late Model tour is the 500th event in Deery Series history, at 34 Raceway in West Burlington on Saturday, Sept. 21. Winner of Monday’s $250 Sunoco Race Fuels feature qualifier drawing was Dalton Simonsen. The Labor Day show was the 49th Deery event held at Boone and the 30th held at Super Nationals. “Todd and I have been friends for a couple years. It was 100 percent how he runs it,” Thornton said after the last of the victory lane photos were taken. “We didn’t change a thing. He has a setup just for Boone.” Piloting a car borrowed from Todd Cooney, Thornton dominated in leading the last 36 of 50 laps and won Monday’s Deery Brothers Summer Series Late Model main event, on opening night of the 37th annual IMCA Speedway Motors Super Nationals fueled by Casey’s at Boone Speedway. “Not a whole lot of people have done that. It’s pretty cool,” said the Arizona transplant, who will be back in action later this week in both a Modified and a Stock Car. “Now I hope to be the first to win two Super Nationals championships the same year.” His convincing win in Monday’s Deery Brothers Summer Series main event made Ricky Thornton Jr. the first champion crowned at the 37th annual IMCA Speedway Motors Super Nationals fueled by Casey’s. (Photo by Tom Macht, www.photofinishphotos.com) The $2,000 checkers came at the end of Thornton’s career-first tour start. The fast-paced feature was stopped by just a single caution, on the second circuit. Thornton had started from inside the third row. He dogged Zrostlik before catching up and beating him across the stripe by less than a car length when lap 14 was scored. He led by half a straightaway when the 20th lap was in the book and had built up an advantage of five-plus seconds over Kay when the checkers flew. The Modified champion at Boone in 2016, Thornton became just the fifth driver to win Super Nationals titles in different divisions. Tenth starting Justin Kay, 13th starting Tyler Bruening, Nick Marolf and Terry Neal completed the top five. Early leader Joe Zrostlik ended in sixth and point leader Andy Eckrich was seventh. “When Ricky Thornton calls and asks to borrow your car, you don’t say no,” said Cooney, who won the last of his three Super Nationals titles in the same car, in 2017, and was almost as happy becoming a Super Nationals champion car owner. BOONE, Iowa (Sept. 2) – Ricky Thornton Jr. had a three-time Super Nationals champion to thank for his second Super Nationals crown. Feature results – 1. Ricky Thornton Jr., Adel; 2. Justin Kay, Wheatland; 3. Tyler Bruening, Decorah; 4. Nick Marolf, Moscow; 5. Terry Neal, Ely; 6. Joe Zrostlik, Long Grove; 7. Andy Eckrich, Oxford; 8. Jeff Aikey, Cedar Falls; 9.
