Arsenal have amassed more Barclays Premier League points than any other side in 2015 – but manager Arsene Wenger admits he cannot forget the New Year’s Day beating at Southampton that he has highlighted as a turning point for his team. The Gunners travel to St Mary’s for Boxing Day’s late kick-off just two points off the top of the table as they go in pursuit of surprise Christmas leaders Leicester. Three league wins in succession, including Monday’s 2-1 victory over title rivals Manchester City, means Wenger’s side has now collected 78 points for the calender year, 10 more than any other club. The 33-year-old Czech has been in fine form since moving from rivals Chelsea and, despite being widely criticised for not making any outfield additions – Arsenal being the only club to do so across Europe’s top-five leagues – Wenger is pleased to have developed the relationship between the players already at his disposal. “Society today always wants something new,” he added. “We have news every half and hour, or every minute. You need to announce something new. “But let’s not forget that football is as well about cohesion, about stability and that goes a little bit against the demand of what people want but I still think success is linked with the talent and cohesion. “Cohesion is an under-rated factor now in our society because there is always a demand for something new.” Wenger will now be hoping that cohesion can help his side have an equally impressive 2016 and lift the title for the first time since 2004 – with a third successive FA Cup still up for grabs, and with Barcelona waiting in the wings in the Champions League. The Frenchman has highlighted an improved level of consistency as the reason Arsenal are the cream of the 2015 crop – despite missing out on a first league crown in 11 years. But it could have been so different had they not regrouped and recovered following a damaging 2-0 defeat on the south coast right at the beginning of the year. Defensive fragilities and errors from goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny were compounded when the Poland international was then fined for smoking in the showers after the game. He has not featured in a league game since and is currently out on loan at Roma but, after seeing his side mature over the course of 12 months, Wenger feels it was an important lesson for his players. “I think what changed is we are more stable defensively,” Wenger said when asked what the main difference between his team then and now is. “If you look at our record we are more consistent with our results and I looked yesterday and someone made the table in 2015 and we are quite ahead of everyone else in 2015. “The consistency has been quite good. I will never forget that game in Southampton. There was a lot around the game after that. It was a turning point for 2015.” As well as maturity, stability has also played a part in Arsenal morphing into bona fide championship challengers – with only goalkeeper Petr Cech added to the ranks in the summer.

GiG lauds its ‘B2B makeover’ delivering Q2 growth August 11, 2020 Submit Share Kambi takes control of Churchill Downs BetAmerica sportsbook August 28, 2020 StumbleUpon Related Articles Kambi takes full control of LeoVegas sportsbook portfolio August 26, 2020 Kristian Nylén – KambiStockholm-listed sports betting platform provider Kambi Group Plc has attributed its success during Q2 2019 to a growing number of partnerships across both Europe and the US, despite facing ‘tough comparatives including the 2018 football World Cup’.Recording a revenue figure of €21.6m, a jump from the previous figure of €17.6m, Kambi has moved towards forging new partnerships across European markets. Kambi highlights a 25 per cent increase in revenue for the first half, posting a figure of €42.6m. Meanwhile the group’s profit after tax dropped slightly from €1.7m down to €1.6m for Q2, despite an overall increase for the first half of the year. During Q2, the sports betting platform and systems provider strengthened partnerships with both the National Lottery and the Rank Group. Earlier in the month, Rank extended its current sportsbook technology and systems agreement with Kambi to cover sports betting provisions for its Spanish market Enracha brand. In the interim report, Kambi said: “National Lottery has taken the Kambi sportsbook into Moldova, having enjoyed strong growth in its home country of Bulgaria. Meanwhile, Rank will soon add the Kambi sportsbook to its Spain-facing Enracha brand, and we’ll continue to power its Grosvenor Sports brand in the UK.” Kambi hopes that its revenue figures will continue to grow as it moves to expand across the Latin American markets via its new partnership with BetWarrior.The statement added: “Q2 2019 was yet another positive period for Kambi, delivering solid financial growth despite the lighter sporting calendar, and signing new customer agreements to keep up our positive commercial momentum.“The development of the competitive landscape in the US has certainly been dynamic, with operators and suppliers taking a variety of strategic routes. For some, joint ventures or M&A have been the preferred choice, while for our multiple US customers, the decision to partner with Kambi has brought them immediate success, and long may that continue. “As the number of regulated states steadily increases over the coming years, so too will the number of attractive opportunities. The fact Kambi has proven its ability to deliver in the US, coupled with our ongoing US investments in people and products, puts us in a good position to convert the best of these opportunities.“Although much focus is on the US, Kambi continues to explore opportunities globally. In this regard, I am delighted we signed another new customer in Q2, with BetWarrior the latest to join the Kambi network. Although a new operator, BetWarrior is led by an experienced and ambitious management team, one which plans to target countries in Latin America, a region where we’ve seen positive regulatory developments of late.”Throughout the first half of the year, Kambi also strengthened its positions across both Pennsylvania and New York, after brokering new deals to power the first three online sportsbooks to launch in Pennsylvania, as well as taking the first legal bet in New York state with RSI at Rivers Casino & Resort Sportsbook.
