TagsOpinionAbout the authorEdward StratmannShare the loveHave your say Three key issues Solskjaer must address to clean up Man Utd messby Edward Stratmann10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveIn the wake of Jose Mourinho’s sacking from Manchester United, the club have chosen to replace him with former hero Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. Stepping into the role of interim manager, the Norwegian has many issues to address in his quest to arrest the side’s fortunes and the negativity surrounding the club. Our columnist looks at three key issues he’ll need to confront…Boost morale and team happinessUnder the stewardship of Mourinho, a man who was never shy in criticising his players in public and letting his opinion fly in a forceful manner, there was no escaping the detrimental impact this had on the squad. Couple this with his pragmatic tactics and the palpable tension surrounding United was rife. On a massive downhill spiral, Man Utd currently find themselves 19 points behind table leading Liverpool as a result, an unacceptable position to be in for a club of United’s quality and stature. With Solskjaer now taking over the reigns, his first challenge will be to return some much needed confidence and positivity into this group. Crucially, he’s shown from his previous posts that he backs his players and shows plenty of belief in his troops. This should unquestionably be a breath of fresh air for a United team who had clearly grown tired of Mourinho’s demoralising style and approach. Sort out PogbaThe strained relationship between Paul Pogba and Mourinho had become a disappointing, ongoing saga, as the duo had been battling it out for the best part of a year. While Mourinho stoked the fire by publicly lambasting him many times and dropping him regularly, the French World Cup winner didn’t cover himself in glory either due to his antics, with his outspoken nature getting himself into hot water and frustrating Mourinho on many occasions. Never really seeming to trust Pogba, Mourinho duly struggled to get the best out of his £89 million star.Having previously stated his admiration of Pogba and worked with him during his time coaching the United reserves, Solskjaer will relish the opportunity to involve the former Juventus whizz. “I would [build the team around him], absolutely no doubt,” he said back in August. “That just shows how far the kid has come. Paul is a fantastic kid so hopefully we can build the team around him and keep him.”It’ll therefore be expected we’ll see the tremendously talented Pogba immediately restored to the starting lineup against Cardiff City this weekend, with the enigmatic midfielder set to be an integral component of the 45-year-old’s plans.Offensive football to returnAs the unrest grew on many fronts, the stifling tactics often implemented by the Portuguese manager were a key bone of contention among many. Judging on Solskjaer’s previous experiences, the new man in charge should bring some bolder, more attackingly geared football to Old Trafford, something that will be music to the United faithful’s ears.Although it’ll take some time for his ideas to bed in, once they’ve been taken on board, Solskjaer will be hoping to get his team playing some progressive and exciting possession football. Previously noting Pep Guardiola and Sir Alex Ferguson as two of his idols and never afraid to give youth a chance, he’ll insist on United building out from the back, pushing the full backs high and using the breathtaking pace and dynamism of the likes of Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford to stretch defences.All things considered, he’s certainly got a massive task ahead of him to get things back on track to revive the ailing Manchester giants. Possessing an invaluable love and knowledge of the club, a desire to play offensive football and wanting to get his players back enjoying their football, watching him go about his work will be fascinating as he’ll do everything in his power to rejuvenate his beloved United.
Cardiff boss Neil Warnock hails away fans for Crystal Palace stalemateby Paul Vegas10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveCardiff City boss Neil Warnock hailed the away support for their 0-0 draw at Crystal Palace.Warnock made a point of instructing his side to applaud the 1,700 away end, with the players handing over shirts to supporters in the crowd.He said: “When you’ve got fans like that and a club supporting you, you’ve always got a chance. Our dressing room is our strength, but I think we play a lot more than we get credit for.”I think the lads get tainted because they’re my team, whereas I think we play as well as a lot of teams in the league and we’ve got a bit of steel about us.””I’m really pleased for the fans. We’ve had one point in I don’t know how many games. To keep that volume up is unbelievable, so all credit to them.”Warnock added: “We looked at the last time they played Burnley and I think they had 30-odd shots, so we knew what we’d be up against.”But I thought we were really well organised and broke at pace when we got time. I thought their keeper made the best save of the game if I’m honest from Kadeem and at the end we kept going and nearly won it at the death.”I know it was a 0-0 draw but I thought it was an exciting 0-0 draw if I’m honest.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say

TUSCALOOSA, AL – NOVEMBER 29: Alabama fans cheer after the Alabama Crimson Tide defeat the Auburn Tigers at Bryant-Denny Stadium on November 29, 2008 in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. Alabama defeated Auburn 36-0. (Photo by Doug Benc/Getty Images)Last week, the Alabama chapter of Alpha Phi released a recruiting video which included an appearance from Crimson Tide running back Kenyan Drake. Just one week later, the school has pulled the footage and issued an official apology. Why? Well, we’re not really sure.Fox Sports’ Clay Travis was able to obtain the statement, which is a bit vague. The decision comes after a columnist at AL.com wrote a scathing piece on the subject, calling the video “worse for women than Donald Trump.”“This video is not reflective of UA’s expectations for student organizations to be responsible digital citizens. It is important for student organizations to remember what is posted on social media makes a difference, today and tomorrow, on how they are viewed and perceived,” said Deborah Lane, Associate Vice President for University Relations.The school’s decision is causing a great deal of controversy, to say the least. If you haven’t seen the video, it’s been re-posted below. You can form your own opinion on it.
Story Highlights RFP for the technology’s acquisition was issued in August The Ministry of Finance and Planning is currently in the process of acquiring a human capital management enterprise system, which will assist in streamlining human resource processes and procedures across the public sector.Deputy Financial Secretary in charge of the Ministry’s Strategic Human Resource Management Division (SHRMD), Wayne Jones, says efforts to secure the requisite technology to support enhanced management and other improvements to the public sector human resource framework, are “well advanced”.Speaking at Tuesday’s (September 17) SHRMD organized workforce adjustment and human resource process standardization conference, at the Institute of Jamaica, in downtown Kingston, Mr. Jones informed that a Request for Proposal (RFP) for the technology’s acquisition was issued in August, and that two bidders conferences have been convened to date.“We are in the process of responding to comments and questions of clarification from prospective bidders. That is being driven by Fiscal Services Limited, our information technology partners,” he outlined.Mr. Jones explained that the move is intended to ensure that “all of us are doing things (relating to human resource management) the same way, because all of us are supposed to be using the same platform.”“The Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) is our financing partner, and things are going well. We are highly confident that we are going to get a robust and effective information technology solution for human capital management in the Jamaican public sector,” he added.Over 100 public sector human resource directors, managers and officers participated in Tuesday’s conference, which featured presentations on a range of human resource processes earmarked for incorporation in the civil service, and strategic policies being developed within the context of a programme of workforce adjustment and development being pursued within the sector.Focus areas in the presentations included: redeployment and selection; grievance, and leave entitlements and management; voluntary separation (encompassing training/re-training and early retirement); performance management; succession planning; recruitment and selection, promotions, and transfers; pensions management; and the motor vehicle duty concession process.

“We need other routes to get hydrocarbons, both oil and natural gas, out of the country and that would be a big step. And once that first step is taken, hopefully, others would follow. So it’s very meaningful.”He said Friday he remains cautious about LNG prospects, pointing out that LNG Canada is still looking for relief from federal tariffs on fabricated steel modules it needs to import from Asia and adding Shell could still choose to build somewhere other than Canada.The North East BC Resource Municipalities Coalition (the Coalition) is optimisticabout British Columbia’s new framework for natural gas development. Fort St. John Mayor Lori Ackerman states, “This framework acknowledges the importance of British Columbia’s Natural Gas and LNG as a clean, reliable, and affordable energy source that will move BC, Canada and our world partners to a lower carbon economy.”Canadian Natural Resources Ltd., one of Canada‘s largest natural gas producers, said in a statement Friday it is also encouraged by B.C.’s commitment to building its LNG industry.“The advancement of LNG development will enable Canada‘s responsibly produced natural gas to reach global markets, creating significant value for B.C. and Canada,” it said.The natural gas investing community has been abuzz with LNG news since the announcement, said CIBC analysts in a report. CALGARY, A.B. – B.C. government tax incentives aimed at jump-starting the much-delayed West Coast LNG industry are being welcomed by Western Canada‘s hard-hit natural gas industry as a potential path to higher prices and better markets for their products.The government said Thursday it hopes its moves will result in a positive investment decision later this year for the $40-billion LNG Canada liquefied natural gas export terminal, pipelines and infrastructure which was delayed in 2016 by proponents led by Royal Dutch Shell.“I’m pleased because it shows the B.C. government is being proactive and has come forward with some inducements for the project,” said CEO Dale Shwed of Calgary-based Crew Energy Inc., which produces liquids-rich natural gas in northeastern B.C. “The general consensus seems to be that an FID (final investment decision) by Shell would be positive for sentiment, if not necessarily result in any material near-term shift to Canadian natural gas supply/demand fundamentals,” they wrote.Investors are now analyzing where the Shell facility would get the gas it will need to generate 13 million tonnes of LNG per year from the first two of four planned “trains” or LNG units, which could be on stream in 2024 if construction starts this year, it added.Several Calgary-based companies producing gas in northeastern B.C. could be suppliers to the proposed Coastal GasLink pipeline leading to the LNG Canada project, including Crew, Canadian Natural Resources, Encana Corp. and Tourmaline Oil Corp., the report said.Thursday’s announcement will provide a fair return for B.C. gas, create jobs, make partners of First Nations and protect the province’s air, land and water, said the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers in a news release. “The global window to build LNG is closing, but these changes will help get Canada into the game,” said CAPP CEO Tim McMillan.“These changes will help ensure a level playing field for LNG proponents competing against other jurisdictions around the world.”The western Canadian natural gas business remains in a deep funk due to low prices and tight pipeline capacity, according to a National Bank of Canada Financial Markets report issued earlier this week.Transmission expansion projects won’t kick in to allow meaningful growth until after 2020, it says, and prices are expected to remain low enough to discourage exploration spending in the meantime.Meanwhile, the U.S. gas supply, up 15 billion cubic feet per day since 2010, is expected to grow by another seven bcf/d this year, which the analysts say will likely lead to more marginally profitable Canadian gas being displaced from its traditional markets in Canada and the U.S.(THE CANADIAN PRESS)

London: Tottenham, Chelsea, Arsenal and Manchester United all failed to muster a win for the second consecutive Premier League weekend as the contenders for a place in next season’s Champions League stumble towards the finish line. Spurs, in third place behind runaway pacesetters Manchester City and Liverpool, are best-placed to secure a fourth straight season of Champions League football. Their 1-0 win over Brighton on Tuesday is the only time in the past 10 games involving the four sides that one of them has won.

For Tottenham, a first defeat at the club’s new stadium, against West Ham on Saturday, means Spurs have now lost 12 times in the league this season. Yet it has still been a campaign of overachievement by Mauricio Pochettino’s men. Despite not signing a single player, spending most of the season at their temporary home of Wembley, and losing talismanic striker Harry Kane for two prolonged spells through injury, Spurs are still the best of the rest in the Premier League behind City and Liverpool and have reached the Champions League semi-finals.

Spurs’ skeleton squad have understandably ran out of gas, but thanks to the profligacy of their rivals, one more win from their final two games against Bournemouth and Everton will guarantee much-needed Champions League cash again next season. Chelsea’s Maurizio Sarri launched an uncharacteristically staunch defence of his first season in charge at Stamford Bridge after a 1-1 draw away to United on Sunday consolidated his side’s place in the top four. “We played the final in the League Cup, we are fighting for the top four, we are in the semi-finals of the Europa League. I think we have done a good season.” Sarri has had his troubles this season. He publicly criticised his players’ mentality followed capitulations on the road at Arsenal, Bournemouth and Everton, while his demand for the loan signing of Gonzalo Higuain in January has reaped precious little reward. Worse could come, with Eden Hazard reportedly closing in on a summer move to Real Madrid and the club currently banned from signing any new players to replace the Belgian for the next two transfer windows. Therefore, it is all the more imperative that Chelsea get back in the Champions League next season. Much of the good work done by Unai Emery over nine months to rebuild the Gunners in the first season since Arsene Wenger’s departure has come undone over three defeats to Crystal Palace, Wolves and Leicester in eight days. The defensive issues that dogged Wenger’s final years in charge still need to be resolved, while Emery constantly chops and changes his formation and personnel in midfield and attack. A three-time Europa League winner with Sevilla, that competition may now prove Arsenal’s best route back to the Champions League but a tough tie against Emery’s old side Valencia awaits in the semi-finals. Despite a run of seven defeats in nine games, United remarkably still had a good chance of hauling themselves into the top four had they held onto an early lead against Chelsea on Sunday. However, United’s current malaise is personified by a dramatic dip in form for goalkeeper David de Gea, who has so often been his side’s saviour in recent seasons.
