The former Chelsea and Aston Villa striker thought Aubameyang looked ‘disinterested’ in Arsenal’s 3-0 defeat at the hands of Manchester City on Wednesday night. And while he wouldn’t question Aubameyang’s goal record – he has scored 17 Premier League goals this season, one more than Southampton’s Ings – he thinks he lacks the desire of a player like Ings – who Cascarino believes has the ability to drive other people around him.When you look at Aubameyang’s numbers, they’re extraordinary,’ Cascarino told TalkSport.AdvertisementAdvertisementADVERTISEMENT About Connatix V67539 Tony Cascarino identifies Danny Ings as an ideal replacement for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang Aubameyang is not ‘committed’, according to Cascarino (Picture: Getty)‘He’s a consistent threat, even when the team isn’t playing well he’s still trying his socks off.‘He also wants to be at the football club, he wants to be at Southampton, he wanted to leave Liverpool and go there to play football.‘Having a player like Aubameyang is great, but he doesn’t want to be at Arsenal, he’s not committing himself to the club.‘And I thought his performance midweek against Manchester City… he didn’t like that he played out on the left and he looked totally disinterested.More: Arsenal FCArsenal flop Denis Suarez delivers verdict on Thomas Partey and Lucas Torreira movesThomas Partey debut?

THE DONEGAL potato crop is ruined, farmers warned today.More than 80% of spuds are still in the fields because of the dreadful rainfall of the last few weeks.And that could hit next year’s crops – because so much of the seed potato for 2012 hasn’t been harvested. Today the Irish Farmers Association has called on the Government to carry out an audit of the disaster.“The October rainfall here was 204mm compared to 62mm last year and 90mm the year before. Many farms are flooded and we need at least four clear days to be able to get at the crop,” said Bridgend farmer Charlie Doherty.“There is also another problem for growers. Potatoes have been growing near the surface of the drills this year because they did not have to go down low to find moisture.“This will mean if there is any frost at all, there will be total devastation of the crop and we will not be able to salvage any.” Mr Doherty said he stood to lose at least €250,000 if he could not get his crop because it cost €2,500 an acre to plough, plant and tend to a crop to the stage where it was being harvested.“A lot of the growers will go to the wall if there is no take-up in the weather and already I think about 30 per cent of the Donegal crop is lost and will not be recoverable,” he tells today’s Irish Times.SPUD CROP ‘RUINED’ SAY FARMERS was last modified: November 3rd, 2011 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:donegalpotato crop ruined
