Why does Zidane not explain the disaster in midfield? Why does he say Real suffer in the middle of the field but let (Dani) Ceballos leave? “Intensity is just an excuse, how can he speak of intensity if after the humiliation of Paris he has granted himself a day off?

first_imgTagsTransfersOpinionAbout the authorChris BeattieShare the loveHave your say Sack Solskjaer? Why dumping manager won’t change anything at Man Utdby Chris Beattie16 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveCOMMENT: Pick a manager… Allegri, Poch.. any manager. Would any manager be able to get a tune out of this lot at Manchester United…?With international week comes the sack talk. Partly due to the need to fill the vacuum left by a barren league programme. But also due to the growing belief inside boardrooms that the best time to remove a manager is during such a recess. A chance to regroup and allow the new man to get his feet under the table before the action resumes.They’re already at it in Italy. AC Milan dumping Marco Giampaolo on Tuesday – just three months into his job. And they won the weekend, never mind being beaten at Newcastle United.But should defeat at St James’ Park be the last straw for United and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer?Well, for many – including some United ‘exes’ – the answer is ‘yes’. With the headlines blazing and the place apparently leaking, it only appears a matter of time before the board admit they were wrong and send Solskjaer back to Norway.Max Allegri has picked up his English lessons again. Mauricio Pochettino is trying to engineer a way out of Tottenham. It’s all lining up. Ed Woodward can get rid of Solskjaer and replace him with someone more suited to the job. Or so they say…Because no matter who is in the dugout, they’ll still have to make do with what’s available to them. Sunday’s team on Tyneside was nothing like what Solskjaer had at his disposal on the opening day for that win over Chelsea. Three of the back four were missing: Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Victor Lindelof and Luke Shaw. Paul Pogba was also absent, as was Anthony Martial in attack. Essentially, injury has robbed Solskjaer of almost half his first-choice team. And while critics will argue ‘it’s a squad game’, it really isn’t when you’re undergoing an overhaul as Solskjaer is now driving through. With Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez now pulling on an Inter Milan shirt for a living, the attack may be paper thin, but long-term it was the right call to shuffle off both players. Indeed, Lukaku is already finding how things can quickly turn in Italy. His coach at Inter, Antonio Conte, having to defend a sluggish performance from the striker for their defeat to Juventus. It was Lukaku’s first big test since his move from United – and it ended with his manager explaining away a lethargic showing.Of course at United, Lukaku would be getting a game today. But that’s not the issue. Solskjaer, with the support of the board, wanted to go in a different direction. And crucially, that support remains.As mapped out here, the club’s top brass have recognised the predicament that has befallen their manager. If results had been the same with Solskjaer’s first-choice XI, then serious questions would be asked. But not today. Not with this reality.Instead, the discussion has been about what’s been put in place – and whether it’s working. And the consensus is positive. The youth policy is showing the right signs. The progress of Scott McTominay and the introduction of Axel Tuanzebe have both pleased management. As have the impact of their three summer signings, Daniel James, Harry Maguire and Wan-Bissaka. On what they’ve seen this season, no-one inside Carrington have doubts about any of these five not being long-term prospects for the club.Indeed, the only criticism, said in some jest, is that Maguire could be doing better by his manager at the other end of the pitch. Being more decisive with that chance at 1-0 at West Ham, along with a soft free header at Newcastle, and the spotlight wouldn’t be so acute on Solskjaer as it is today.But in the aftermath of that Toon defeat, there were some positives – if we care to consider the long-term.It was significant that the two leading voices to react to the loss were David de Gea and Marcus Rashford. Both fresh from committing themselves to new contracts, their reactions were of men who have bought into something. They were taking ownership. Not so much for the result, but something far bigger – the project. De Gea, particularly, spoke of someone determined for this plan to succeed – and well aware of his place inside it. Time will tell if a new leadership group is forming, but the signs are that De Gea and Rashford do have the stomach for this fight the club is in.And it is a fight. Results have the club spiraling. But there are reasons. Reasons the board have accepted. They know, given current circumstances, a change of manager would make little difference. last_img read more

first_imgThe Canadian PressManitoba Premier Brian Pallister is suggesting the federal government could take over the Port of Churchill as one way to help revive the subarctic town’s broken rail line and economy.“The federal government has the responsibility for ports,” Pallister said Thursday. “They run dozens of them and maybe they could run one more.”Pallister has said he is hopeful the federal government will find a solution to the crisis facing Churchill, which lost its only ground connection to the outside world in the spring when flooding damaged the rail line.People and goods have had to be flown in at much higher cost, and the town of 900 residents on the coast of Hudson Bay fears a long-term economic hit.The railway and port used to be federally owned but were sold to Denver-based Omnitrax in 1997.Omnitrax closed the port’s grain terminal last year. Its biggest customer used to be the Canadian Wheat Board before the agency lost its monopoly on western wheat and barley sales.Omnitrax has been trying to sell the rail line and has said it cannot afford the repairs needed to get a 250-kilometre section of the line back up _ at an estimated cost of $43.5 million.Read more: Report says Churchill rail line could be repaired soon for $43 million or lessPallister said a revived port would help the viability of the rail line and the economy as a whole.“That is of great importance to the long-term sustainability of the community as it exists today and for northern development,” he said. “It’s a tremendous asset for the country of Canada, quite frankly.”Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said in July that Omnitrax has a legal obligation to fix and operate the line. He did not directly answer when asked whether the government might sue Omnitrax.The company has been in talks with a First Nations consortium to sell the line. That could pave the way for government subsidies for repairs, but there is no sign of a deal.Pallister is not the only politician touting the idea of a federal takeover. New Democrat member of Parliament Niki Ashton, who represents the Churchill area, has called on Ottawa to nationalize both the port and the rail line.“We know the privatization experiment failed,” she said in a written statement last year.“It’s time to develop a model that benefits our North and Canada as a whole.”Contact APTN National News here: [email protected]last_img read more

first_imgKITIMAT, B.C. — The company behind a controversial natural gas pipeline in northern British Columbia says construction began in a number of places before archaeological assessments were complete.Coastal GasLink says an internal audit found there were two areas along the right of way east of Kitimat where land was cleared before archaeological impact assessments occurred.It says the assessments are conditions of the permits issued by the BC Oil and Gas Commission and the B.C. government’s Environmental Assessment Certificate. “I have directed the team to complete a thorough investigation of these incidents and have halted clearing work in the area until the investigation is complete and recommendations are put into practice,” Pfeiffer said in a statement Thursday.The Canadian Press Coastal GasLink says it has suspended all clearing activity in the area until an internal review is complete and actions are taken to prevent it from happening again.It says it has also notified affected Indigenous communities and welcomes their participation in post-impact assessments.The Coastal GasLink pipeline inspired global protests when hereditary chiefs of the Wet’suwet’en First Nation said it had no authority without their consent.The company says it had signed agreements with all 20 elected First Nations along the 670-kilometre route to LNG Canada’s export terminal on the coast in Kitimat, including the Wet’suwet’en council.It says the land cleared in the affected areas measure 600-by-50-metres and 240-by-10-metres respectively and assessments of neighbouring lands had identified them as having low likelihood of archaeological significance.Coastal GasLink president David Pfeiffer says he regrets the errors that led to the construction.last_img read more

first_imgChicago: Rapper R. Kelly has been released from jail here after the $161,000 he owed in child support was paid. The Cook County sheriff’s office said the money was paid on Saturday morning and he was set free shortly afterwards, reports bbc.com. It is unclear who made the singer’s payment. The R&B artist was last month charged with 10 counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse, involving four alleged victims, three of whom were minors. Also Read – Hilarie Burton, Jeffery Dean Morgan tie the knot He pleaded not guilty to all the charges and was released on bail after spending three nights in jail. If convicted, he faces three to seven years in prison on each charge. As he walked out of jail on Saturday, CNN quoted him as saying: “We’re going to straighten all this stuff out.” The singer had been prepared to pay up to $60,000 of what he owed to his former wife, Andrea Kelly, and their three children, but the judge had required the full amount and ordered him detained. The singer’s defence attorney had previously said the singer was having financial difficulties and his finances were a “mess”. Kelly has been a target of a boycott campaign, and his recording contract has been cancelled.last_img read more

first_imgNEW DELHI – Wearing his traditional Nehru-cap, 45-year old former bureaucrat-turned politician Arvind Kejriwal, head of the newcomer Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) or Common Man’s Party, was sworn in on Saturday as Delhi’s youngest chief minister at Ramlila public park in Delhi as a massive crowd of nearly 100,000 people including party workers cheered him.  Kejriwal, whose party AAP made spectacular electoral debut in Delhi elections of December 4, rode the Delhi metro to the swearing-in ceremony  at the historic public park signifying his party’s promise of “ending the VIP culture” of India’s political capital.Saturday’s oath-taking ceremony was held at the public park on the request of Kejriwal as he wanted “common man” to attend the function. Kejriwal was sworn-in as chief minister by Delhi’s Lieutenant Governor Najeeb Jung. 1600 policemen were on guard as thousands of party workers and supporters cheered and waved brooms, AAP’s election symbol, as Kejriwal made a soul-stirring speech vowing to serve the people.“I appeal to my party let us never become arrogant,” Kejriwal said.“We are here to serve,” he said.Kejriwal, whose party emerged as a new ray of hope against rampant corruption in government, swore that he and his party will never offer or seek bribe.“Let us swear that we will never seek nor offer a bribe,” Kejriwal thundered as thousands of supporters including common men and women roared in assent.Kejriwal said that Saturday’s swearing-in ceremony was like every common man has become chief minister of Delhi.He termed the recent Delhi election as “miraculous” and “revolutionary” stressing that politics can de done with “honesty” and “integrity.“Till now we used to think that India cannot be saved from corruption but today the people of Delhi have shown that elections and politics can be done with honesty and integrity,” he said.Kejriwal said there is no problem that can’t be solved if there is unity.“There is no problem that we cannot solve if we unite,” he said maintaining that he has no magic wand to solve all the problems.“We don’t have a magic wand, but Delhi’s 1.5 crores (15 million) people can find a solution to anything,” he asserted.Kejriwal addressed a press conference soon after assuming charge of chief minister and announced that he would keep important portfolios including Home, Power, Finance and Vigilance.Kejriwal also reaffirmed his belief that he and his ministers won’t need police security and sprawling government bungalows as the “VIP culture” goes against the spirit of common man’s party.Hours after taking oath, the newly-formed Delhi cabinet decided that no minister or government official will be allowed to carry “red beacon” cars as it signifies “VIP Culture”.On December 23, in a handwritten letter, Kejriwal had formally notified the Delhi police that he does not need any security.“I don’t need any security. I don’t need any escort…God is my biggest security,” Kejriwal had written in the letter.Delhi police chief had written to Kejriwal that as a protocol they are bound to provide him top layer ‘Z’ security.AAP made a spectacular debut in Delhi elections by winning 28 of 70 seats in the new Assembly, whose elections results were declared on December 8. BJP emerged as the single largest party with 31 seats but refused to form a government as it was short of a majority. AAP formed the government with the external support of eight Congress lawmakers.AAP was born out of a country-wide anti-corruption movement spearheaded under the leadership of Gandhian social crusader Anna Hazare which demanded strong anti-corruption legislation against elected representatives and public officials. Kejriwal, a former income tax commissioner, rose to prominence in recent years as the ‘right-hand’ of Hazare.Both Hazare and Kejriwal parted ways after the latter decided to join politics a year ago, citing differences in political views.last_img read more
