Eric Dier More English youngsters should go abroad like Sancho

first_imgMore English youngsters should emulate Jadon Sancho’s example and move to a foreign football club, says Eric DierAt just 18 years old, Sancho has already become an integral member of Borussia Dortmund and won his first three England caps recently.This comes after Sancho made the bold move in 2017 to leave Manchester City for Dortmund in Germany – a decision which is paying dividends for him now.Dier, who himself rose through the youth ranks at Portuguese side Sporting Lisbon, now hopes to see more young English talent go abroad.The Tottenham midfielder will return “home” to Portugal for the Nations League semi-finals in June.Jadon SanchoMerson believes Arsenal should sign Sancho Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho might be the perfect player to play for the Gunners, according to former England international Paul Merson.“It will be the first time I go back and play there since I left – it will be very special,” said Dier, according to the Telegraph.“It’s my home so I am very happy to go back. I hope players continue to do what Jadon is doing.“That’s so important for their development. Not just as a footballer but as a man.“He’s out of his comfort zone and he’s living by himself in a foreign country. Those experiences are important for you to grow as a person.”Sancho has managed 5 goals and eight assists in 17 appearances for Dortmund across all competitions this season.last_img read more

Publishers Consumers Rush to the iPad

Even digital magazine vendor Zinio released a statement over the weekend announcing the Zinio App in the App Store. The free app makes the titles in Zinio’s digital newsstand available on the iPad, and allows users to navigate “within each magazine page between text, interactive graphics, animated illustrations, videos” and more.The enthusiasm surrounding the iPad was ripe with consumers, too. Apple said today that as of midnight Saturday, it sold more than 300,000 iPads in the U.S., including deliveries of pre-orders and sales at retail stores. iPad users subsequently downloaded more than 250,000 e-books from its iBookstore during the first 24 hours.It’s obviously still too early to say whether the iPad will be the magazine/media savior it has been (over) hyped to be. As Jeff Jarvis recently pointed out via Twitter, consumers might be less inclined to pay $5 for a magazine’s iPad app if they can access much of the same content for free online or via its free iPhone app which, in turn, is accessible on the iPad. And the question remains: Even if consumers buy up magazine apps in droves, will sales translate to meaningful revenues for publishers? With little surprise, the Apple iPad bandwagon is growing exponentially. Late last week, hours before the product officially was released Saturday, media companies rushed to market with announcements proclaiming that their content would be available on the new tablet device. Among them were Bonnier’s Popular Science, Rodale’s Men’s Health, Time Inc.’s Time, as well as titles from Hearst and Conde Nast. Some apps are paid (Men’s Health for $4.99, and Time for $4.95) while others (WSJ, USA Today, etc.) are free.Today, F+W Media joined the expanding media community on the iPad. F+W says it has signed an agreement to become an e-book provider to the Apple iBookstore, the iPad’s retail application. So far, it has uploaded select titles from its top 50 best-selling e-books, and will add to it over the coming weeks. F+W, which publishes 35 magazines, on average produces 600 new books annually and has a backlist of approximately 3,500 books (it sold 10.2 million books last year).“No matter how the landscape changes, we at F+W will remain media-agnostic and delivery-agnostic,” CEO David Nussbaum said in a recent FOLIO: blog post. “Our evergreen content is equally suited to p-books and e-books. We will continue to offer our content however, wherever, our customers and communities demand.” read more
