‘She’s not satisfied with victory’: how Sarina Wiegman transformed England | England women’s football team

Yon 2012, the year Arjan Veurink took charge of Twente's women's team, Sarina Wiegman's ADO Den Haag won the Dutch double – the now England Women head coach's first Eredivisie title and first KNVB Cup as a manager. The following season Veurink got the better of the woman who would later join as an assistant, winning the league with Twente. One week later, though, Wiegman's side denied him the chance to match her exploits by beating his side in the cup final.This was Veurink's introduction to the woman with whom he has gone on to form a formidable coaching partnership. Initially they were adversaries, vying for the biggest domestic prizes. “We played against each other a lot,” says Veurink. “It's always a lovely question to ask her [about that]I'm always joking a little bit about th...

If the economy needs sacrifices, it will be workers who are thrown to the wolves | Nick Cohen

We are back in the thieving world of Fred “the Shred” Goodwin and Northern Rock. The sole difference from 2008 is that instead of the state expecting ordinary people to bail out failed banks, it is expecting them to take pay cuts to protect bosses' bonuses. The war against inflation in the 2020s, like the war against financial collapse in the noughties, must be fought by those least able to fight it.Nowhere in the speeches of the prime minister, chancellor or governor of the Bank of England is there a hint that a national emergency demands equality of sacrifice. They do not repeat David Cameron's line that “we're all in this together”. As millions sink down, all they say is that it is their patriotic duty to protect the privileged by sinking deeper. Or, as a writer plucked from the...

“Porrón” and “Mercedes Benz” play it all on the last day

Peter SardineValencia Updated:07/02/2022 18:35h Save The silly day of all years came out at the Queen's Trophy. He woke up cloudy, but he did not look bad either. Little wind, but rising and rolling to the East, which gave hope that the day would rise. It began to blow and the Regatta Committee, which had scheduled the start at 12 noon, in case three tasks could be completed, arranged a windward-leeward course of just over six miles. The first round started with a wind intensity of 12 knots, but with little wave and with the threat that the intensity would drop as the minutes passed. Good first beat with stable wind. The two big ones, "Aifos" and "Blue Carbón" made a bad start, so they had to turn as soon as they left to reach the "leyl...
