Klopp: LFC defending hurt attack

first_imgLiverpool manager Jurgen Klopp accepts a greater focus on defending has impacted his team’s attack this season.Klopp’s men are unbeaten in eight Premier League games, but their attack is yet to reach the same heights as 2017-18.With 15 finishes thus far, Liverpool are equal fifth for goals scored, however, they have conceded just three – a league-best alongside Manchester City.

Zlatan wasn’t even the best player in LA! Klopp said a change in approach had contributed to those numbers, but believes his team are still creating enough.”We want to be stronger defensively but we didn’t say that means we don’t have that much interest in offensive things,” the German told UK newspapers.”It’s a normal period of adaptation. You need to get used to things – closing this gap, this space.”You put the focus a bit more on something and immediately you lose a bit of the fluency in something else.”But we have created enough chances, it’s just that we didn’t score. It’s not that we’ve had no chances, it’s just that we didn’t use them like we used them in the best period of last season.”I am completely fine with that. We have already had good results and scored goals but it’s obvious that we can improve. We need to keep the stability – no doubt about that.”FINALLY…@premierleague football returns tomorrow!! Meanwhile, enjoy every #LFC goal so far this season… pic.twitter.com/EsyFLXCSYs— Liverpool FC (@LFC) October 19, 2018Liverpool have also made adjustments to their pressing this season, with it occurring less often higher up the pitch.But Klopp, whose team visit Huddersfield Town on Saturday, said that was purely down to the approach of opponents.”It’s more the case that teams don’t usually play against us. They overplay our pressing with long balls, which makes sense,” he said.”In a lot of games our counter-press has been really good, which is much more important in terms of losing the ball and winning it back.”In terms of the high press, it depends on the style of play of the other team. You can’t do it if they don’t play. It’s not that we don’t want to do it any more. If they play then we should be there.”  Subscribe to Goal’s Liverpool Correspondent Neil Jones’ weekly email bringing you the best Liverpool FC writing from around the weblast_img read more

RBC layoffs continue in the Bahamas

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppBahamas, April 25, 2017 – Nassau – RBC’s “New business model” is being attributed to the closure of more banks in the Bahamas, which has led to forced lay-offs. So far five persons were sent home from the Carmichael branch, while three persons were dismissed from the Old Fort Bay branch. The bank says some of the persons laid off were said to be employed in middle management positions. It adds that the new business model aims at pushing it customers toward “electronic banking systems”, such as online banking.Bahamas is not the only Caribbean nation to face layoffs by the bank, as in recent months, RBC has announced downsizing in several of its operations in Trinidad and Tobago and Jamaica. Over 20 of its Trinidad and Tobago employees were placed on the breadline in March, with the closure of three of its branches.Here in the Bahamas, the bank commenced closure of its Bimini and Spanish Wells branch starting with the Lynden Pindling International Airport in Nassau and Treasure Cay. The announcement is said to have caused uproar in the Bimini and Spanish Wells areas as it leaves the islands without a physical bank to conduct business.The lay- offs come following statements issued in February by the banks’ Chief Regional Economist, Marla Dukharan, where she chastised the Bahamas’ government for its “failure to act in fiscally prudent” , “squandering the Caribbean’s ‘most successful Value-Added Tax’ and failing to reduce its national fiscal debt”. Her statements were based on the release of the Government’s fiscal deficit for the first four months of 2016-2017 which noted an increase of  75.3 per cent to $157.5 million.RBC has been the main bank used for Bahamas government transactions.Story by: Kimberly Ramkhalawan#MagneticMediaNews#RBClayoffscontinue#morelayoffsinBahamasbyRBC Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Related Items:#magneticmedianews, #morelayoffsinBahamasbyRBC, #RBClayoffscontinuelast_img read more
