But we laughed about it as well,’ Wilshere told Arsenal’s In Lockdown podcast.‘When I first got into the team I played on the right wing and I actually really enjoyed it. I never saw myself playing there but I really enjoyed it, cutting in from the right, taking either a shot or a through ball and I really enjoyed it.‘Then when I started playing in the Premier League, we used to play a 4-2-3-1 and I’d play in the two in midfield. I think that was only because of the injuries at the time but then I took my opportunity, he stuck by me and I learnt that position that year.‘But then when I came back from that injury, I think he saw me playing further forward. He wanted me to play as a No.10 and, don’t get me wrong, I did enjoy it but I found it more difficult playing there. I enjoyed it more playing a little bit deeper and getting on the ball, controlling the game.And then obviously, I started playing holding midfield for England and I loved it. Things went really well when I was playing there and I felt like I was learning that role and then I came back and had a conversation with Arsene and he was like, “No, I don’t see you playing there”.‘We didn’t really play that formation where there was that one holding midfielder anyway but I wanted to play in the two but he kept playing me in the No.10 role which I enjoyed… listen, I was playing No.10 with the No.10 on my back so I was living the dream but I just felt I could give a little bit more when I was deeper.’ Advertisementlast_img

BIFA: Sulphur Surcharge Will Be Extremely Unpopular

first_imgThe British International Freight Association (BIFA) has slammed the recent introduction of the sulphur surcharge by the container shipping industry, describing it as unjustified.To remind, the world’s largest liner company Maersk Line is planning to introduce a new fuel adjustment surcharge ahead of the 2020 sulphur cap. The surcharge will be introduced on January 1, 2019, and it will be levied separately from the company’s freight rate.As explained, the new Bunker Adjustment Factor (BAF) surcharge aims at recovering Maersk Line’s costs of compliance with the global sulphur cap, which is set to increase the company’s fuel bill by USD 2 billion a year.Robert Keen, BIFA Director General, said rises of such magnitude were unjustified and could be construed as “blatant profiteering by shipping lines determined to exploit the situation.”BIFA would prefer any necessary increases to be consolidated within freight rates and with any required fluctuation being managed against that figure. “BIFA members are now faced with the task of explaining yet another surcharge to their customers, and what the rationale behind it is. The sulphur surcharge is bound to be extremely unpopular,” Keen said.Earlier this year, leading container shipping companies, Maersk Line, MSC and CMA CGM, introduced “emergency” bunker surcharges in response to rising fuel costs.BIFA has been vocal opponent of the liners’ surcharges, saying that often they are unjust and baseless.last_img
