Arsenal leading the chase for top class Spurs target, Wenger likes him a lot - originally posted on Sportslens.com Arsenal are leading the chase for the highly rated Watford midfielder Abdoulaye Doucoure.

Doucoure has been in sensational form this season and the big clubs are keeping tabs on the Frenchman. According to Graeme Bailey, Arsenal, Tottenham and Liverpool are interested in the player. The report adds that Arsene Wenger admires the Watford midfielder and a summer move is definitely on the cards. It will be interesting to see whether Watford are willing to sell a key player.

Telegraph adds that the offer has been on the table since the end of last year but Real Madrid have asked the player to stall until April. Los Blancos are still deciding on whether they want to move for De Gea or Courtois. Apparently, they rate De Gea higher but they also believe that it would b...

Top class Spurs target says he wants to join Arsenal because of this crucial reason - originally posted on Sportslens.com Watford midfielder Abdoulaye Doucoure has been very impressive in the Premier League this season and he has been linked with a move away. Earlier this week, it was reported that Tottenham are interested in signing the midfielder. Now, the player has confirmed that he is interested in joining Arsenal. Doucoure is an admirer of Arsene Wenger. The 25-year-old joined the Hornets in the summer and he has been one of the best box-to-box midfielders in the league so far. Arsenal could certainly use a powerful presence like him at the heart of their midfielder. Spurs are probably looking at him as the long-term replacement for Mousa Dembele. It will be interesting to see where...

Scott Pruitt makes it clear—He flies first class to avoid the dirty hippies at the back of the plane

Politics
Why does EPA chief Scott Pruitt require an absolutely unprecedented army of at least 30 personal security guards? Why did he clear a whole floor of the EPA for his private use? Why did he institute a new security system within the security system to keep people out of the building, and a $25,000 cone of silence within in his office? Most of all, why does he fly around the world in first class, surrounded by his security entourage? What horrible threat requires that the public spend—at least—hundreds of thousands on giving Pruitt special waivers to grab first class tickets not just to Europe, but on even the shortest flight? Now we have an answer. Someone … hurt Pruitt’s feelings. The director of the EPA’s Office of Criminal Enforcement, Henry Barnet, told Politico that Pruitt was “appro

Don’t let Scott Pruitt’s first class travel distract you from an even bigger scandal

Politics
It has been a rough week for Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator Scott Pruitt. On Sunday, the Washington Post reported that Pruitt spent at least $90,000 on first class and business class plane tickets while traveling for official government work last June. On Tuesday, Pruitt boarded a flight from D.C. to Boston — and publicly acknowledged that he flew first class for the hour-long flight. Critics pointed to the trip — as well as the EPA’s subsequent explanation that Pruitt has a “blanket waiver” for first class travel due to security issues — as an egregious example of Pruitt’s penchant for spending taxpayer money. Sierra Club executive director Michael Brune called out the administrator’s “dangerously skewed priorities...
