Foreigners are often frustrated not just by the small size of most German grocery stores, but also because of an apparent stubbornness from the famous discounters Aldi, Lidl and Netto about moving into the food delivery business. While mid-range supermarkets like Rewe and Edeka have stepped up investments in their 'groceries to your door' services, low-cost chains have instead thrived by taking advantage of curbs designed to prevent the spread of hypermarkets. Spurning the e-grocery revolution altogether — although Lidl does deliver some clothes, household and electrical items — the discounters have instead dominated the grocery sector by focusing on smaller stores, with a limited product range, located in almost every suburb of most German cities and towns. Closer to home Unlike the US and Britain, where the trend until recently has been toward hypermarkets — which for many consumers is often a day out in itself — retail analysts told DW that Germans … [Read more...] about Why don’t Aldi and Lidl deliver?

FREDDIE LJUNGBERG does not expect to be Arsenal manager for much longer. The Swede has been in temporary charge for four games after Unai Emery was sacked two weeks ago. But the club are stepping up their search for a new full-time boss and Ljungberg is not even sure if he will still be at the Emirates by the new year. Technical director Edu and head of football Raul Sanllehi missed Thursday’s Europa League clash with Standard Liege to continue the recruitment process. And Ljungberg admitted: “We have a tough run coming up and I will learn a lot about the players if I’m still here. “The club have said I have to wait until they make a decision so I can’t do anything at the moment.“Maybe we can do something with the staff when they make that decision or if I’m obviously leaving. But it’s up to the club. I haven’t got any indications of whether I’m staying or not. “What I’ve said to the bosses is I will do everything … [Read more...] about Arsenal caretaker Freddie Ljungberg does not expect to be Gunners boss for long as club step up search to replace Emery
ANDY RUIZ JR could fight Deontay Wilder BEFORE Anthony Joshua does. The WBC have confirmed that the Mexican fighter will get a shot at Wilder’s heavyweight belt despite losing his own WBO and IBF titles to Anthony Joshua last weekend. Ruiz was given the runaround by AJ in their Saudi Arabia rematch, having gained extra weight and done very little training since his shock victory in the first clash at New York’s Madison Square Garden. Joshua has now been tipped to take on Wilder and fellow heavyweight giant Tyson Fury in a bid to unify the division. But AJ has since been ordered to take on WBO mandatory challenger Oleksandr Usyk next, with IBF mandatory challenger Kubrat Pulev also in waiting. And the door has now been opened for Ruiz Jr to get in the ring with Wilder – as long as the Mexican can keep his weight in check.WBC president Mauricio Sulaiman said: “Andy is going to be well rated, not only because of the big surprise he gave in June. “He has a … [Read more...] about Andy Ruiz Jr could fight Deontay Wilder BEFORE Anthony Joshua does, confirm WBC despite Mexican’s defeat to Brit
Wales 2 Azerbaijan 1 Ryan Giggs had made it clear before this all-important qualifier that the Wales attack is not all about Gareth Bale. On this occasion, though, Giggs got it wrong. This was an ugly victory and a worrying performance, but it was a win all the same and it was a win provided by the man who does so much to lead the way for his national side. Bale created the first goal, firing the shot which led to a comical own goal by Azerbaijan’s Pavlo Pashayev, and then struck the second as the desperation grew in Cardiff. Wales were far from effective and even further from impressive against a side ranked below the Faroe Islands and Libya, but they eventually claimed three points which keep alive their hopes of qualification for next year’s European Championships. Of course, Bale had accomplices. Jonny Williams, on as a second-half substitute, helped to change the game. But the Real Madrid forward was yet again the central figure for his country, nodding home a vital … [Read more...] about Gareth Bale strikes late to dig Wales out of a hole against Azerbaijan and keep Euro 2020 hopes alive
