Laudrup: Defeat no season barometer

first_imgMichael Laudrup will not dwell on Swansea’s 4-1 defeat to Manchester United because the result will have a minimal effect on where his side finish the season. “On Thursday we have to prepare for a completely different competition. It is the first leg of two against the Romanian side in the Europa League and in that game it is very important for us not to concede goals.” Victory in Swansea was an ideal start for Moyes as he faces the unenviable task of replacing the most successful British manager in history. But, despite the change of manager, Laudrup believes they remain the team to beat thanks to the winning mentality nurtured at Old Trafford over the previous quarter of a century. “It is unique because Ferguson has been there so many years,” said the Dane. “It is something they have built up, it is personalised in him because he was the manager for all those years. “They have built something up that is so difficult – a winning mentality. “There were three teams who could win the title last year. Manchester United, Manchester City and Chelsea. “Do I think Manchester United had a much better team than the other two? No. “But they had the winning mentality. In certain games and periods, because of the manger and what is inside the players, they had that winning mentality that you cannot buy. “It is something you build up. Some players have it and when you bring players in, the old players and the manager try to inject that into the players. “It is so difficult to explain and build up. Manchester United have had it many years and will still have it for many years. it is like a strand of DNA at the club. Other clubs still have to build it.” Swansea had been tipped to give David Moyes and United an uncomfortable start to life after Sir Alex Ferguson at the Liberty Stadium. But two goals for the brilliant Robin van Persie and a brace for Danny Welbeck gave the visitors an emphatic 4-1 victory in south Wales. The only consolation for the Swans was Wilfried Bony finding the net on his Premier League debut but, after an encouraging pre-season which had included a comfortable Europa League win over Malmo, this was something of a rude awakening. The Welsh club must now prepare for the first leg of their Europa League play-off round tie against Romania’s Petrolul Ploiesti, and Sunday’s testing league trip to face Tottenham. But Laudrup will remain typically calm, and was quick to point out that it is results against the other 12 teams in what he considers to be the second tier of the top-flight, that will ultimately dictate the success of Swansea’s season. “The big players play for the big teams. That is why there is such a big difference sometimes,” he said. “They just need a couple of chances and they score. The two goals from Van Persie were world class. “It happened to us last season against Tottenham here. We were in the game, we dominated and suddenly two interventions from Gareth Bale and you are 2-0 down. You try to come back but it is difficult. They have so many quality players. “After a great pre-season, not conceding any goals, and we have conceded four in one game, even if it is against Manchester United. It is not what you want. “But Manchester United and us are playing for two different things. It is not against teams like that we have to see where we are. Press Associationlast_img read more

UK betting faces crossfire of educational data breach

first_img Marc Etches to step down as CEO of GambleAware in 2021 August 14, 2020 StumbleUpon Share BGC: Government must ‘act fast’ and extend furlough scheme August 11, 2020 Share 2020 begins with no respite for UK betting leadership, as the industry suffers another weekend of frontpage headlines as a Sunday Times investigation reveals that UK betting firms engaged with the ‘breached data’ of the ‘Learning Records Service’ educational index, however the Betting and Gaming Council has dismissed the coverage as ‘untrue’.The database contained the names, ages and addresses of a reported 28 million children aged 14 and above, designed for the purposes of verifying academic records and monitoring pupils’ educational needs.The Learning Records Service index is maintained by the Department of Education (DoE), which this weekend confirmed that it had shut down access to records, as an angered DoE Secretary Gavin Williamson sanctioned an immediate investigation of the data breaches.Betting and Gaming Council said: “Media reports that betting companies have access to the Learning Records Service database are untrue. GB Group provides age-verification services to a range of organisations from banks to government agencies and betting companies. All betting companies are legally required to verify the age of people who wish to join to ensure that they are over the age of 18, the only information GB Group provides is confirmation or rejection that the applicant is over the age of 18.”The Sunday Times reports that the data breaches relate to third party access of the Learning Records Service by Chester-based intelligence firm GB Group Plc, who had been able to reference the educational data as part of a business agreement with employment screening firm Trust Systems Software, commonly known as ‘Trustopia’.GB Group is reported to have utilised the data as a cross-referencing service for online gambling operators seeking to verify and age check customers. Betfair and 32Red have been disclosed as customers of GB Group data.Branded as one of the UK’s biggest ever breaches of government data, the DoE underlines that access to its Learning Records Service could only be sanctioned for educational purposes.“This was completely unacceptable, and we have immediately stopped the firm’s access and ended our agreement with them. We will be taking the strongest possible action,” detailed a DoE statement.Both GB Group and Trustopia have issued responses to the Sunday Times, denying that they had illegally accessed the DoE’s data.Leading the DoE Gavin Williamson underlined that the government would undertake the toughest actions against the firms that have accessed its educational data. Nevertheless, it remains unclear whether betting operators would have known of any GB Group and Trustopia data arrangement.A turbulent start to 2020 has seen UK betting’s value chain come under media scrutiny, as the UK Gambling Commission (UKGC) investigates the live streaming contracts of bookmakers which allowed Bet365, Betfair, William Hill, Coral, Ladbrokes, Unibet and Paddy Power to live stream FA Cup matches – an arrangement criticised by the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS).Last week, NHS Mental Health Director Claire Murdoch wrote a letter to industry leadership demanding that gambling firms end free promotions, incentives and VIP rewards as a means to end ‘a vicious gambling cycle’ on vulnerable consumers.
