Manchester City 5 Arsenal 0

Ten-man Arsenal were completely outplayed by Manchester City as they slumped to the bottom of the Premier League. It is the first time since 1954 that the Gunners have lost their three opening games of the league season and this match was effectively over by half-time. City captain Ilkay Gundogan and striker Ferran Torres scored in the first 12 minutes and any hope Arsenal had of an unlikely comeback was ended when midfielder Granit Xhaka was sent off for lunging into a challenge on Joao Cancelo.

A trademark teasing run from ¬£100m man Jack Grealish set up Gabriel Jesus for an easy third just before the break, then Rodri guided home a fourth from 20 yards just after it. Such was his side’s total control that City manager Pep Guardiola had used all three substitutes within 16 minutes of the second half starting. It turned into an extended keep-ball session for the hosts, who finished off the rout with Torres’ second six minutes from time. Guardiola’s counterpart and former assistant Mikel Arteta looked shell-shocked in the other technical area as Raheem Sterling – twice – Aymeric Laporte and Riyad Mahrez wasted opportunities to increase the margin of victory still further.

By the end, Arsenal had managed a single shot – off target – and 19% possession. They are still to score in the Premier League this season and immediately after the international break play Norwich, the team they replaced at the foot of the table.The return of skipper Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and new signing Martin Odegaard made no noticeable difference to two previously tepid performances against Brentford and Chelsea. The Gunners’ hapless state was exemplified by Xhaka. An experienced international, needed to guide the youngsters around him, Xhaka’s response to his team going two goals down so early in a key game was to launch himself at Cancelo in a manner that made referee Martin Atkinson’s decision to brandish a red card automatic.

Cookbooks Versus Electronic Recipes Versus Print out Recipes

Cookbooks versus electronic recipes versus printing out recipes from the computer. Which do you prefer? Pros and cons?

I will be honest and say that I don’t really cook but I have used Youtube for a couple of recipes here and there. I prefer the electronic version of recipes instead of reading off from a cookbook or a printout because it takes up so little space when you see it on you tablet or your phone. Also paper tends to fly in the wind, get wet and rip/tear.

The best way is to take your tab or phone and keep it on a stand. Play the video and go along with them. It’s easy to rewind, pause and play back if you didn’t quite catch something and want to get the doubt erased from your mind. Oh also, you can see how it looks like when the chefs or homecooks do it and then when you are done, you can look at your dish and wonder what went wrong!

So I am glad to have a mobile on which I can do this. I don’t have a tab and if I did, I would fully make use of it for cooking using recipes from the internet.
