Arsenal youth chief Mertesacker: Emery has brought different kind of energyby Paul Vegasa month agoSend to a friendShare the loveArsenal academy chief Per Mertesacker says manager Unai Emery has re-energised the club.It’s just over 12 months since Arsene Wenger waved goodbye and the north Londoners have taken time to adjust.“Going away from Arsene meant there was a leadership void. It was almost the case that Arsene decided everything,” Mertesacker said.“Now it’s more spread out. We have brought in Edu, two CEOs, plus myself and a new manager.“The club has undergone a massive change and everyone still needs to find their feet but Unai is more focused on the first team and the football side. He’s not as involved as Arsene was in strategic issues. There’s a shift in leadership.“He brings a different kind of energy. You could see the shift from Arsene to Unai. It was new. Everyone was energised by a new start.”This isn’t being negative but you could smell that it needed a new start. There was a difference in training. You could see that after having one manager for such a long time there was a positive energy about the place.”With the arrival of Edu as sporting director it has all been very positive. We want to build on that momentum. I feel there’s some momentum building up. You can see energy about the place.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say

Dan Nelson with the Borough Office of Emergency Management presented the new traffic plan for the week ahead at the community meeting in Cooper Landing on Saturday: “We’ve had the road closed as you are coming into the community of Cooper Landing at the Skilak Lake Road, and that has now been changed to MP 71 at the Watson Lake area. The other side at MP 53 will remain the same.” The Incident Command Teams plan will be to provide enough notice for the short term delays so that residents are made aware of these before attempting to travel the highway. Continued updates will be posted throughout the week as they are made available. By planning ahead for this and informing the public of the possible traffic delay, this will allow motorists to plan and avoid a sudden disruption to travel plans.
