Man Utd will back Solskjaer for ‘fresh start’

first_img“While the last few weeks were disappointing, we are delighted to confirm the appointment of Ole on a three-year contract,” said Woodward on a conference call to investors as United’s third-quarter financial results were revealed on Thursday.“Preparations for the new season are under way and the underlying strength of our business will allow us to support the manager and his team as we look to the future.”United ended the season 32 points off Premier League champions Manchester City and failed to qualify for the Champions League after finishing sixth.Solskjaer has spoken honestly about the need for a huge rebuild at Old Trafford but is hoping that a new season and additions to the squad will result in a fresh start for the club.“I can’t wait because it’s a fresh start. We set targets, aligning our ambitions and we’ll work together and agree certain principles,” the Norwegian told the United app.“It’s always a massive month, or six weeks, that we have together to agree on how we’re going to do things to set the culture right.”United still expect to post revenues of between £615 million ($787 million) and £630m in fiscal 2019, which ends on June 30.Revenues for the three months up until the end of March 2019 were up 3.4 percent to £152 million, largely thanks to extra broadcasting income from the Champions League.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000‘Fresh start’: Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be backed in the transfer market © AFP / Paul ELLISLONDON, United Kingdom, May 16 – Manchester United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward vowed that manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be backed in the transfer market despite a bitterly disappointing end to the season.Solskjaer was only appointed on a permanent basis in March but is already under pressure after United won just two of their final 11 games in all competitions.last_img read more

Paul Scholes on Newcastle thriller: That was finally like watching a Man United team

first_img1 Wayne Rooney celebrates scoring for Manchester United Paul Scholes hailed Manchester United for finally making him feel entertained following their thrilling 3-3 draw with Newcastle.The United legend has been scathing of the style of play under Louis van Gaal and claimed the players looked ‘bored’ during their narrow win over Sheffield United in the FA Cup on Saturday.But Scholes was enthused by their performance against the Magpies on Tuesday night, despite Paul Dummett’s last-minute equaliser denying the Red Devils victory.“Loads better,” he told BT Sport when asked how he was feeling after United’s display.“To go and watch Manchester United, whether it’s home or away, is entertainment, it’s goals – whether you concede goals or whether you can score goals.“Tonight that was like watching a Manchester United team. Okay, they didn’t win but they should have won, really.“(Marouane) Fellaini’s header – what a chance to make it 4-2 – and Jesse (Lingard) has had a great chance, and that’s just what I expect.“I expect positive play from Manchester United all the time, whether you’re at home or away.“Sometimes it’s a little bit easier to do it away from home, actually, when a team comes out at you and really has a go like Newcastle did.“Now they have to try and transfer this type of form to Old Trafford.”last_img read more

DISAPPOINTMENT AS ENGLISH FAILS TO GET OUT OF WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP HEATS

first_imgMark English has failed to qualify from the first round heats of the 800m at the World Championships.Despite a late finishing burst, the Letterkenny man did not do enough to secure a top-three spot and automatic qualification in Moscow today.His fourth place in heat four briefly left him in a fastest loser spot but a quicker following heat knocked him out. English, whose set a personal best of 1:44.84 recently, clocked 1:47.08 in today’s race.It was always going to be a tough ask for English given the presence of American medal contender Nick Symmonds and Qatar’s Musaeb Abdulrahman in the qualifier.English appeared to leave himself with too much to do in the closing stages as he was unable to get on terms with the leading trio despite producing his fast finish.The tactic of hanging back worked well in London two weeks ago as he picked his way past world-class athletes in the closing 200m. English will probably feel that he should have been capable of beating Moroccan Jamma whose personal best is 1:45.47.Those behind English included Kenyan Jeremiah Mutai who surprisingly could only clock 1:50.17.DISAPPOINTMENT AS ENGLISH FAILS TO GET OUT OF WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP HEATS was last modified: August 10th, 2013 by StephenShare 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:Letterkenny athletemark englishWorld Championshipslast_img read more

Drake Falls to No. 16/15 Iowa, 91-82

first_img at Bradley 1/4/2019 – 7 p.m. Following Friday’s final non-conference game, the Bulldogs kick off Missouri Valley Conference play Jan. 4 in Peoria, Ill. with a 7 p.m. tip-off against the Bradley Braves. Print Friendly Version Hittner matched her season-high in scoring with five minutes left in the second quarter. Her 23 first-half points were crucial, as just two other Bulldogs were in the scoring column at the second quarter media timeout. Photo Gallery At halftime, Drake led 45-43 after trailing by as much as 16 early. Hittner led all scorers with 23 points on 9-of-12 shooting, including 4-of-7 from three-point range. As a team, the Bulldogs hit five of their last eleven attempts from deep to outpace Iowa’s attack. Full Schedule Roster Preview Story Links Watch Live Next Game: Sara Rhine (Eldon, Mo.) scored 14 points and added four rebounds as Rhine has hit double-digit points in every game this season. Following the game, Hittner and Rhine were both recognized for reaching the 1,000-career point mark. With 3:11 on the clock, Drake kicked it into gear with a 13-0 scoring run to cut the Iowa lead to three points at 26-23 by the end of the quarter. Hittner’s 6-of-7 shooting performance was huge for Drake to get back in the game after Iowa’s hot start. Also, with five rebounds was Brenni Rose (Shawnee, Kan.), who added a team-best four assists, and Sammie Bachrodt (Wichita, Kan.), who scored 13 points and nabbed a pair of steals. Bachrodt is now only 11 points from 1,000 in her career. Maddy Dean (Jordan, Minn.) added 15 points.center_img Iowa also got into foul trouble late, but it was too late for the Bulldogs to take advantage. Hittner scored the team’s final seven points, but Iowa’s lead was too large to overcome as it pulled out the in-state win. Later in the fourth, Bachrodt hit a three-pointer to tie the game at 70-70 with 8:20 left. However, Drake’s three inside players, Rhine, Allie Wooldridge (Center Point, Iowa) and Monica Burich (Roseville, Minn.), had foul trouble and were forced to play cautiously in the final quarter. This allowed Gustafson to play more aggressively down low as she scored 19 points in the quarter, and helped Iowa lead by as many as 14 late. The Hawkeyes jumped out to an early 26-10 lead, helped by making their first nine shots. Hittner did her best to keep the Bulldogs in the game, scoring Drake’s first 11 points.

Iowa looked like they were going to run away with the lead, but Bachrodt hit four free throws in the final minute to make it a one-point (68-67) game going into the fourth. The Bulldogs did a good job to frustrate Gustafson in the second quarter, denying her the ball and making things difficult in the paint. The All-American made just one field goal on six attempts in the quarter.

Cosmologist Suffers Paranoid Delusions: Media Promotes His Views

first_img“They’re coming to get us, and I’m sure of it, because I know everything.”  What would you think of someone who talked like that?  What if he were one of the most famous cosmologists alive today?  The man is Stephen Hawking – that wheelchair-bound math wizard who talks with a speech synthesizer and once fell into a black hole in The Simpsons.  Now, the Discovery Channel is poised to air his views on SETI and alien life, and the science media, as usual, can’t get enough of his opinions.    The BBC News reported that Hawking considers it “perfectly rational” to believe that aliens exist, but he also believes we should do everything possible to avoid making contact.  He said, “We only have to look at ourselves to see how intelligent life might develop into something we wouldn’t want to meet.”  Normally, scientists do not try to build a universal principle from a sample size of one, nor make such generalities castigating all sentient beings in the universe because of the sins of some.*  PhysOrg briefly parroted these opinions without comment, as did Jessica Griggs at New Scientist.  Clara Moskowitz gave Hawking the most paranoid-sounding headline, though, on Space.com: “If Aliens Exist,They May Come to Get Us, Stephen Hawking Says.”    Along with Hawking’s evidence-challenged delusions that they’re out to get us, he believes he has an inside scoop on the secrets of the universe.  The next episode of his Discovery Channel series, Moskowitz revealed, is titled, “The Story of Everything.”*  This is the “Hollywood Fallacy.”  Consider two filmmakers making documentaries about Los Angeles.  One shows off all the glamour and glitz: Hollywood movie stars, Rodeo Drive, Disneyland, beaches with gorgeous girls, all the best.  Filmmaker #2 makes a film about gangs, drugs, riots, fires and earthquakes.  Which is the truth?    Hawking is undoubtedly thinking of the downside of European conquest of the Americas, and perhaps other instances of conquest, but such broad-brush depictions are not useful without specifics.  The Portuguese were interested primarily in trade, for instance, whereas their neighbors, the Spaniards, sailed to conquer.  And not all the conquered people were worse off after conquest (though many were).  Before the 16th century, the Mayans were throwing girls to volcano gods and committing ritual human sacrifice in ways that shock archaeologists today.  Tribal warfare in some lands before Europeans arrived was brutal and vicious.  It was often replaced by colonization that was also brutal in different ways, but not always.  And we must ask, what peoples did the well-known tribes conquer before them?    Many of the early mountain men were respectful to the Native Americans; trade was welcome, and developed into a mutually beneficial relationship.  Is it their fault if later generations took advantage of the doors they had opened?  Some of the mountain men were appalled at treatment of the Indians and intervened on their behalf.  Sometimes the immigrants tried to be peaceful and introduce trade, only to be massacred for their kindness.  We all know the bad cases (slavery, genocide, epidemics); colonization and empire are often synonymous with greed and avarice.  But some colonizers attempted to be peaceful and benevolent and establish mutually attractive relationships with natives, and some native peoples accepted the terms.  Once in awhile colonization brought new blessings and opportunities.    There’s another more major problem with Hawking’s fear of aliens.  Can he really compare what happened on Earth, where all the parties involved belong to Homo sapiens, with what might happen between people and aliens?  When you talk specifics, you can have a meaningful conversation and bring clarity.  Generalities often serve only to reinforce stereotypes.With all due respect to Hawking’s struggle with ALS and the courage he has exhibited in his many years proving that a life is valuable despite physical disabilities, these factors are no excuse for saying dumb things.  The men in blue suits tried to cure this madman of his delusions by subjecting him to shock treatment in NASA’s “Vomit Comet” in 2007 (picture on Engadget.com), but it obviously didn’t work.  But then, would you expect evolutionary psychologists (02/16/2010, 02/28/2010) to cure paranoia brought on by evolutionary cosmology?  The Discovery Channel should look for more rational content at the Discovery Institute.  We had a little fun here at Hawking’s expense, the poor, good-natured genius.  Now read what physicist Rob Sheldon thinks of all this.(Visited 13 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more
