Solskjaer’s smash-and-grab: Why this Man Utd manager has more than luck going for himby Chris Beattie9 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveCOMMENT: A 1-0 win in London. At Tottenham. On paper it reads like a real smash-and-grab. And it was. But the way Manchester United nicked these three points was a complete 180 to the tale such a result would’ve demanded just a month ago…Jammy. Lucky. Yeah, Spurs fans can feel aggrieved today. Mauricio Pochettino, the home manager, had no complaints in the aftermath. They simply came up against an inspired goalkeeper. But David de Gea would also pull off such performances pre- Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. The Spaniard was outstanding. Inspirational. But so was what he saw in front of him. As mentioned, this was a smash-and-grab. But it was done by a United on the front foot. In their best traditions. Spurs weren’t locked down. Their play wasn’t stifled. Strangled. It was the opposite. Pochettino’s greatest concern wasn’t breaking down a packed defence. It was the two forwards Solskjaer insisted stayed on the halfway line. No matter the pressure. No matter the time Spurs had in possession. United’s manager always had two attackers waiting to turn Tottenham’s defenders around.Six wins from six. With a bit of luck to help things along. But what’s wrong with being a lucky manager? Especially when it’s his initiative which is bringing this change of fortune.It’s not luck that Solskjaer has decided to go all in with Marcus Rashford as his prime – central – striker. It’s not luck that the Norwegian has realised the best way to win with this group of players is by backing their attacking strength. And it wasn’t luck that produced the winner – via Rashford – at Wembley on Sunday. The reaction of the manager and his staff a clear indicator that a week’s work in Dubai had just come off. Something which the matchwinner would later confirm.“We’ve done a lot of work in training on switching the play and little things like that,” Rashford revealed in the aftermath. “We’ve had a long week in training (in Dubai) and it’s been tough in training, but that’s the type of thing we’ve been working on. So for it to come out in a game is good for us as players and good for the staff as well.” Claims that Solskjaer is simply the beneficiary of player power – that they’re now performing because Jose Mourinho isn’t around – is insulting to the caretaker boss. When he and his staff review Sunday’s win, they’ll be confronted by the same problems as what Mourinho struggled with. A loose back four. An even looser midfield. By rights, Spurs should have taken the three points. But Solskjaer has made a difference. On the training pitch. In team selection. He’s giving this group of United players a tactical platform to go out and win. And as this column has already stated, it’s a platform over 11 years in the making. From the highs with Molde. To the lows with Cardiff City. And everything inbetween. These United players are the recipient of the decade long apprenticeship served by Solskjaer.They may get torn to shreds at the back. But United will always have a chance with De Gea between the posts and the pace they have up front. In the Mourinho era, we’d say the manager can’t trust his back four. But this is Solskjaer’s time, though the sentiment remains the same. He’s leaning on those players regarded as the best inside his squad. And they all happen to be attackers. It’s a cliche, but it’s working for this United manager: attack is the best form of defence.And suddenly this lot do have the makings of a great United team. And in the very best traditions of Sir Alex Ferguson. A great goalkeeper. Attacking, edge-of-your seat pace in attack. If Ed Woodward, United’s vice-chairman exec, can find his manager a new centre-half, they’ll be a step closer to completing the revival.From Gary Pallister. To Jaap Stam. And Rio Ferdinand. Sir Alex broke transfer record after transfer record to find the right centre-half to buttress the style of football he wanted to employ.Five years since the Scot’s retirement and Solskjaer is bringing back that approach. It might as well have been Fergie himself when the manager declared late Sunday afternoon: “We’ve got the best goalkeeper in the world. We’ve got blistering pace…”And now he just needs that centre-half. If Woodward is still hesitating this smash-and-grab should strengthen the manager’s case. Give him what he needs and Solskjaer is proving he can deliver. TagsTransfersOpinionAbout the authorChris BeattieShare the loveHave your say
OSU freshman Luke Fletcher celebrates his first varsity victory over Missouri’s Zach Synon. Credit: Sam Janicki. Courtesy of OSU AthleticsThe dual-meet between Ohio State and Missouri, featuring two 2016 Olympians and recognizing last season’s championships won by sophomore Myles Martin and junior Kyle Snyder, the No. 4 Buckeyes dominated the No. 5 Tigers 30-9.Redshirt juniors Nathan Tomasello and Bo Jordan, Snyder and Martin all won in landslide decisions.“You see these four guys, four of the 10 were a critical part of our first national championship,” OSU coach Tom Ryan said.At 133 pounds, Tomasello faced off against Missouri’s Jaydin Eierman, in a match that turned controversial after Tomasello finished a slam out of bounds after a blown whistle.“I didn’t hear any whistle and then as the whistle blew, I already had him in the air,” Tomasello said. “I wanted to finish my tag. I think it was kind of good to get the crowd more involved after that.”Tomasello won the match 11-2. Since beginning the season with an injury, he has lived up to the hype of a championship contender in the few weeks of competition.“Patience, patience is important,” Tomasello said. “Having support from the training staff and from coach Ryan and all the guys like Kyle (Snyder) has helped me to continue to push hard and come back even better than I was last year.”A point of anticipation in Thursday’s match was the debut of OSU freshman Luke Pletcher at 141 pounds, who had his redshirt pulled earlier this week. Down early in the first period, Pletcher rebounded by scoring a late takedown, ultimately prevailing 6-3.“I remember him staying in the fight,” Ryan said. “I remember him scoring late in the periods. You want to be the guy that scores the last points in the period.”Coach Ryan praised Pletcher’s ability to handle the stress and pressure that comes with short turnarounds and tough competition. “We felt pretty good about Luke going in. On a daily basis, he does the things necessary to have a performance like that.”OSU’s Kollin Moore, redshirt freshman at 197 lbs., wrestled the tightest match of the night, taking on Olympic bronze medalist and top-ranked J’den Cox of Missouri. Moore fell behind 0-2 early, but kept close the entire match. Two crucial takedowns in the third period brought Moore within a point of Cox, but his effort fell short, as Cox prevailed 6-4.Bo Jordan and brother Micah won their matches by a combined score of 37-13. Martin scored six takedowns, winning 21-5. Snyder pinned his opponent in the heavyweight division.
The 2011 FIFA Women’s World Cup won’t begin until June 26, but the U.S. women’s national team looks ready. Preparations for this summer’s tournament continued for the American women Saturday with a 2-0 international friendly match win against Japan at Crew Stadium. The U.S. took a 1-0 lead in the 29th minute, thanks to veteran forward Abby Wambach’s goal — the 118th of her international career. Just eight minutes later, Wambach assisted on a goal that forward Amy Rodriguez hit off the post to give America a 2-0 lead. The U.S. went on to win by the same score. Japan began the match with offensive pressure and threatened American goalkeeper Hope Solo as the U.S. sat back early. “If you look at the first 25 minutes, I don’t think it’s good soccer,” U.S. coach Pia Sundhage said. “(Japan) played good. They kept possession and so forth.” Momentum swung in America’s favor when defender Ali Krieger provided the free-kick service for Wambach’s goal from about 35 yards away from Japan’s net. Wambach met Krieger’s lofted ball in stride and headed it passed Japanese goalkeeper Ayumi Kaihori to give the Americans a 1-0 lead. “We struggled big time until we scored the first goal,” Sundhage said. “Abby was great today. Just look at that goal; it (was) fantastic.” Wambach contributed to the American attack again just moments later. In the 37th minute, Wambach assisted on Rodriguez’s goal with a simple pass into Japan’s penalty area. Rodriguez hit the pass in stride, and the ball eventually trickled over the goal line after hitting off Kaihori’s near post. Despite contributing to both goals, Wambach credited the win to the U.S.’s defenders, saying they had a “strong” performance. “We have such a great defense,” Wambach said. “Our back four (defenders) are so solid. I like our chances when we score one goal.” Solo, who collected the 51st shutout of her international career, agreed. “It’s pretty easy playing with this back line,” Solo said. “My work is half as much as it usually is playing in the (Women’s Professional Soccer league).” The U.S.’s momentum continued immediately after play resumed in the second half, as the team fired three shots in the first seven minutes. By game’s end, the Americans took nine on-target shots at Kaihori, but none found the back of the net. Though her team did not score in the final 53 minutes of the game, Sundhage said the U.S.’s performance improved after the team’s early hiccups. “The second half was so much better than the first half,” Sundhage said. “We can do better.” Discipline in every facet of the U.S.’s game helped limit Japan’s offense in the final minutes — America went 21 minutes without committing a foul, from the 62nd minute until the 83rd minute. The 2-0 lead was all the Americans needed. Sundhage said she was happy with the outcome of the match. “This is a great team, and the team put it together,” Sundhage said. “We stayed composed and we came back. You don’t have to play beautiful soccer for 90 minutes, but you need to be smart enough to find a way. We did it.” The U.S. women’s national team will continue its FIFA World Cup preparation with another game against Japan on Wednesday. The match is scheduled to kick off at 7 p.m. in Cary, N.C.
Newcastle manager Rafael Benitez has insisted that the performances of the players at the World Cup will not have an effect on his summer transfer plansThe Spaniard, who is currently facing an uncertain future at St James’ Park, has confirmed that he has begun making his plans with managing director Lee Charnley.But the former Liverpool manager has refused to judge players based on their performances in the upcoming World Cup this summer in Russia.“I don’t think so. We have people going around but now you can see a lot of players and you don’t have to be there.” said Benitez, according to Chronicle Live.“Also I am not a fan of the Euros and World Cup in terms of signing players from there because when they go there, what do they have? Something you don’t have for ten months, it’s not guaranteed for ten months.Jose Mourinho is sold on Lampard succeeding at Chelsea Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – September 14, 2019 Jose Mourinho wanted to give his two cents on Frank Lampard’s odds as the new Chelsea FC manager, he thinks he will succeed.There really…“When you go to the Euros and the World Cup, everybody wants to go and they are motivated. This motivation for one or two weeks, for some players it is enough to make a name and then go to a top side.“But after for ten months, maybe they don’t reach the level. I am not impressed with the World Cup or Euros in terms of signing players because they do well there.”After a difficult start in their return to the Premier League this season, there has been a notable upturn in form for Newcastle since the beginning of the new year and Benitez’s side have climbed to an unexpected 10th place in the standings.Yet the 57 year-old has previously stated that he will not be satisfied until they reach his 40 point target with Newcastle just two points shy.
Spain captain Sergio Ramos is hoping that his Real Madrid teammate Cristiano Ronaldo has a rare bad game ahead of their first match against Portugal at the World CupAfter playing integral roles alongside each other last season as Real claimed a third successive Champions League title, the duo will now line-up at opposite ends for their respective national sides as Spain face Portugal in their Group B opener on Friday.Ahead of the meeting at the Fisht Olympic Stadium, an anxious Ramos admitted that he does not find the prospect of facing an in-form Ronaldo to be inviting and hopes that the five-time Ballon d’Or winner has a rare bad game.“I’d rather have him on my team than against me. We know how dangerous he can be,” said Ramos, according to SportsKeeda.Fiorentina owner: “Ribery played better than Ronaldo!” Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Fiorentina owner Rocco Commisso was left gushing over Franck Ribery’s performance against Juventus, which he rates above that of even Cristiano Ronaldo’s.“He ended the season in outstanding shape. He’s a constant threat.“Not only Ronaldo but the Portugal squad are very talented. There are many players who can hurt you quickly, a lot of skill and safe in their defensive formation.“We will see a match for all sports lovers. It will be beautiful. I hope Cristiano doesn’t play his best match.”Following the shock sacking of head coach Julen Lopetegui on Wednesday, Spain have since confirmed that sporting director Fernando Hierro will take charge of the national side for the World Cup.
New Real Madrid boss Julen Lopetegui may not even be a month into the job yet, but defender Dani Carvajal is convinced that he will prove to be a great successThe 51-year-old was announced as Zinedine Zidane’s successor last month in a rather controversial twist that saw Lopetegui immediately removed from his post as the Spain head coach with just two days remaining till the start of the World Cup.But Lopetegui has now put the sad end to his time in charge of the national side behind him and he has now officially begun his duties at Real.The former goalkeeper previously played for Los Blancos during his playing career and won La Liga in the 1989/90 season but he has never managed to deliver silverware at club level in his managerial career for Rayo Vallecano, RM Castilla B and FC Porto.But Carvajal, who played under Lopetegui with Spain’s Under-19s, Under-21s and the senior team, is certain that his compatriot is the right man to take Real to even further heights this season after winning three successive Champions League titles under his predecessor Zidane.“I have always enjoyed Lopetegui,” Carvajal told El Gráfico, via AS.“I share his ideas of football and he is a coach who gets the most out of each player. He is going to do us well and I am already anxious to put myself at his orders. The bar is now very high but we have to have patience.”Zidane reveals Sergio Ramos injury concern for Real Madrid Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Zinedine Zidane has put Sergio Ramos’ availability for Real Madrid’s trip to Sevilla next weekend in doubt after withdrawing him against Levante.⚽? ¡De vuelta con el equipo! ?? @DaniCarvajal92 ?? @NavasKeylor#RMTour pic.twitter.com/2y51g1ybBP— Real Madrid C.F. (@realmadrid) July 29, 2018“We all get along well,” he added.“I think that is key for success. It’s practically a family and that makes everything easier on the pitch. The pressure at Real Madrid is always there and you learn to live with that. We enter [training] every day and share [the pitch] with the best in the world – it’s amazing. I think the good atmosphere has been fundamental for things to go well.”Real will face Manchester United on Tuesday night in the first preseason match of their US tour.
Caretaker manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer believes Manchester United must take the game to Liverpool in today’s showdown between the old rivals.The Red Devils will play host to Liverpool at Old Trafford this afternoon in what is widely viewed as the Premier League’s biggest match.On the back of 8 wins in 9 league games under Solskjaer, United have moved into the top-four of the standings and will be looking to get one over their rivals by claiming victory today and hindering Liverpool’s title bid in the process.And Solskjaer, who has a big history against Liverpool as a United player, outlined what his squad must do to beat the Reds.“We always want to take the initiative,” said Solskjaer on the club website. “I thought we started on the front foot against PSG but, then again, they took the initiative so we will go into this game wanting to dominate the game but, then again, we know their strengths.“We know they’re going to be waiting for our mistakes and counter attack but then, if we drop back, they can dominate us.Liverpool legend Nicol slams Harry Maguire’s Man United form Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Steve Nicol believes Harry Maguire has made some “horrendous mistakes” recently, and has failed to find his best form since joining Manchester United.“So we don’t want to do that at Old Trafford, so we’ve just got to take that lead.”On whether a positive approach is always the plan, Solskjaer replied: “Well, that’s always my first thought – to try to win the game. I’ve never gone into a game trying not to lose a game.“Then again, as I’m saying, you’re playing against 11 players as well and a team, so if we can do to Liverpool what we’ve done to a few teams now, I’ll be very happy.“If we have to play a different way, then the game itself decides that really, so the start is very important.”Jesse Lingard and Anthony Martial could feature in today’s match after being originally ruled out, but are both unlikely to start.Meanwhile, Romelu Lukaku remains an uncertainty for a start after returning to the line-up in last Monday’s 2-0 FA Cup win at Chelsea.The match between United and Liverpool will begin at 3:05 PM (CET) today.MANCHESTER, ENGLAND – FEBRUARY 11: Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, Interim Manager of Manchester United looks on during a training session ahead of their UEFA Champions League Round of 16 match against Paris Saint-Germain F.C. at Aon Training Complex on February 11, 2019 in Manchester, England.

fact that Brittany Maynard was a Californian suffering from an incurable irreversible illness who then had to leave the state to ease her suffering was simply appalling simply unacceptable" says California Senator Lois Wolk who along with Senator Bill Monning both Democrats have co-authored a bill giving terminally ill patients with six months to live the ability to obtain life-ending medication (MORE: See Which States Allow End-of-Life Treatment) The bill which would require two independent physicians to determine that patients are mentally competent to make an end-of-life decision is largely modeled after Oregons 1997 Death With Dignity law which was the first state measure to allow terminal patients to end their lives That law has become a template for other states considering similar legislation According to the Oregon Public Health Division 1173 people have had end-of-life medication prescribed to them as of 2013; 752 have actually chosen to ingest it Only two other states have passed right-to-die legislation Washington and Vermont while judges in New Mexico and Montana have effectively legalized it by saying there is nothing barring doctors from prescribing life-ending medication For years the so-called right-to-die movement was most associated with Jack Kevorkian the Michigan physician known as Dr Death for participating in dozens of physician-assisted suicides one of which led to a conviction of second-degree murder Maynard offered a far more sympathetic face for the movement A 29-year-old newlywed who was diagnosed with brain cancer on Jan 1 2014 Maynard used her story to advocate for so-called death-with-dignity laws while publicly discussing her symptoms and plans for her last few weeks She died Nov 1 after taking doctor-prescribed barbiturates Since then legislators from 14 states have either introduced or pledged to put forward right-to-die bills according to Compassion & Choices a national organization advocating death with dignity The group says it conducted surveys showing that two-thirds of Californians support end-of-life legislation "The case of Brittany Maynard has brought this into focus for many Californians" Monning says "Theres a changed public attitude and increased awareness and we think the time is right for California" (MORE: Death Is Not Only for the Dying) Wolk acknowledges that actually getting the bill passed however will be a "heavy lift” The measure could find support among some Democrats and libertarian-leaning conservatives who often favor letting individuals make their own end-of-life decisions But resistance will be strong from social conservatives in both parties The Catholic Church in particular has long led the fight against similar measures around the nation The church has already hired a lobbying firm from Sacramento to fight the bill according to the Los Angeles Times The American Medical Association which believes that doctors shouldnt be involved in life-ending treatment could provide another obstacle Wolk expects the bill will make it out of committee and reach the Senate floor but will have a tough time passing both houses of the legislature It’s also unclear whether Governor Jerry Brown would sign it if it reached his desk The onetime Jesuit seminarian has not publicly addressed the issue according to the San Jose Mercury News During his first stint as governor in 1976 Brown signed a law that gave terminally ill patients the right to end life-sustaining treatment if their death was imminent the first of its kind in the nation If the bill doesnt pass however the issue will likely make its way directly to California voters Compassion & Choices is already laying the groundwork to get it on the 2016 ballot as a referendum Correction:

of a “fever” But the real historical context in which the story is set had to do with a fever less about love and more about money The fever in question known as the Tulip Mania (sometimes styled as one word) struck in 17th century Holland when the nation’s now-famous blooms caused a major financial boom and bust As TIME once explained in a story about a different boom market the flower itself was almost incidental to the story: The tulip was then a comparatively new import from the Near East and mutant specimens with irregular stripes were prized as rarities so prized that men would mortgage their villas and their fields The tulips had little intrinsic value Their worth as commodities was a function of pure irrational desire and their economic fate proved that nothing is more manipulable than desire When the mania fell away the flowers were as pretty as they had been before It was just that now few people wanted them very much whereas before they had been invested with a kind of fetishistic and obsessive “rarity” Get your history fix in one place: sign up for the weekly TIME History newsletter It was according to Mehmet Odekon’s financial encyclopedia Booms and Busts the first significant bubble in European financial history It burst in 1637 when tulip speculators could no longer find investors; without that flow of money the bulbs themselves “plummeted” in value In the centuries since though many experts believe it did not really damage the Dutch economy long-term it has remained an important touchstone and reference point for what can happen when financial speculation goes haywire The level of speculation in fact would even have affected the painterly plot of Tulip Fever “At the height of the Dutch tulip mania” Robert Hughes noted in a 2001 review of

formally began its well-choreographed annual Parliament season during which a constitutional amendment removing the two-term limit for President Xi Jinping is expected to be ratified paving the way for his continuation in power possibly for life The annual Parliament season during which about 5000 delegates of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC) and the legislature the National People’s Congress (NPC) would hold full sessions to deliberate on a vast agenda for the year prepared by the ruling Communist Party of China (CPC) This year’s sessions assumed significance and attracted considerable attention as days ago the CPC has proposed constitutional amendment to remove the two-term limit for the president and vice president setting aside decades old principle of collective leadership The proposal sparked off concern and speculation at home and abroad that Xi heading the CPC and military besides the presidency who recently began his second five-year term would continue for an unprecedented third term and beyond wielding unquestionable power exercised by the party founder Mao Zedong in the heydays of China’s revolution File image of Chinese president Xi Jinping The Parliament season formally commenced with the opening of the CPPCC at the Great Hall of People It was attended by Xi now a designated “core leader” by the party The opening of the session was telecast live all over the country Also other party leaders including Premier Li Keqiang members of the Standing Committee of the CPC who virtually rule the country attended the session This Parliament season this year is also significant as top officials on almost all posts except the ones held by Xi and perhaps by Li might change It includes a new State Councillor replacing the incumbent Yang Jiechi who for the past five years was the Special Representative of India-China Border talks Yang has been elevated to CPC’s politburo The present foreign minister Wang Yi might take over as the State Councillor which also means that China will have a new foreign minister The new names approved by the CPC’s Central Committee would be announced after the formal ratification by the NPC which is often regarded as rubber stamp Parliament for its routine approval of the party’s proposals As he set to cement his power removing two term limit Xi plans to appoint four vice premiers to work on popular programmes like poverty relief environmental protection and improving economy which would enhance his image at home The proposal sparked off speculation that Xi is working on populist agenda which would contribute to his public image Tomorrow the NPC spokesperson would address the press during which China would announce the defence budget which last year stood at over $150 billion The NPC which has 2980 deputies would begin its session on 5 March with a work report from Li Its delegates included 269 deputies from the military As China’s main legislative body it was expected to formally ratify the amendment to remove the term limit as well as appointment of new officials The CPPCC is made up of appointees from difference walks of life including film actors like Jackie Chan CPPCC Chairman Yu Zhengsheng commenced the session and spoke about deepening reforms On Friday CPPCC spokesman Wang Guoqing addressed a nationally televised conference in which he took selected

removal of the two-term limit for president and vice-president which made headlines at home and abroad Hong Kong-based the ‘South China Morning Post’ has reported that that Xi has identified four CPC
