Rashford comes in from the cold at Man United

first_imgFILE PHOTO: Marcus Rashford Share on: WhatsApp Sent off at Burnley in September for a headbutt, Rashford was labelled “naive” by Mourinho.It was not the last time he would be one of Mourinho’s sacrificial lambs.“When we talk about Luke Shaw, about (Anthony) Martial, about (Jesse) Lingard, about Marcus Rashford, we’re talking about boys with great potential but who still are lacking that (courage),” Mourinho moaned in November.Thankfully for Rashford’s flagging morale, that proved one of Mourinho’s last salvos before his unlamented exit.Solskjaer knows a thing or two about persevering in adversity at United after thriving under Alex Ferguson despite often being used as an impact substitute.His refusal to be defined by his understudy role was rewarded when he scored the dramatic winner in the 1999 Champions League final against Bayern Munich.Feeling a kinship with Rashford, Solskjaer was quick to seek him out when he arrived at United’s Carrington training ground, making a point of rebuilding his shattered confidence by assuring him the goals would come as long as he persevered.Putting in the hard yards has never been a problem for Rashford, who is so dedicated to his craft that he spends hours after training honing his skills while most of his teammates have long since gone home.“Marcus just wants to learn. He’s on the training pitch all the time and at times you have to drag him off, because he just wants to be out there,” United defender Ashley Young said.“It’s fantastic to see, he’s got that hunger, that desire, he’s a winner.”For Solskjaer, a devotee of United’s purist principles, the pace and poise of Rashford was the ideal building block for his revamped attack.His strike against Brighton was his 41st goal for United, with Ronaldo having scored 25 times and Rooney 45 times after 150 games.Unchained by Solskjaer, Rashford is the leading man at last and United are reaping the rewards.center_img London, United Kingdom | AFP | Marcus Rashford was in danger of seeing his dream of becoming Manchester United’s star striker turn to dust but the England forward is flourishing again after escaping Jose Mourinho’s shackles.Three years after exploding onto the Premier League scene, Rashford marked his 150th United appearance on Saturday with a memorable goal that underlined his vast potential.Smoothly turning away from Brighton’s Pascal Gross, Rashford curled a fine shot into the top corner as United sealed a seventh successive win since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer took over as interim manager.Solskjaer’s arrival in December to replace the sacked Mourinho has proved a catalyst for United’s surge, and Rashford has been at the heart of their success.Rashford has scored five times in six league matches following the Norwegian’s appointment, earning comparisons from his manager with former United stars Cristiano Ronaldo and Wayne Rooney.“Definitely he can be absolutely top-class. He is only 21 but the maturity he is showing at times is more than 21,” Solskjaer said when asked if Rashford was capable of emulating Ronaldo and Rooney.Born in the south Manchester suburb of Wythenshawe, Rashford has long appeared destined to join the lengthy list of homegrown United legends.He joined the club as a seven-year-old and was so highly regarded that the notoriously demanding Louis van Gaal handed him his debut in a Europa League tie against Midtjylland in February 2016.The coltish Rashford netted twice that night, before scoring another brace against Arsenal in his first Premier League game three days later.He also scored in his first Manchester derby match and his first Champions League match, earning an England call-up that featured — what else — a debut goal.Scoring against Australia in the third minute, Rashford became the youngest Englishman to net on his international bow.But following Mourinho’s arrival, it quickly became clear that Rashford’s precocious talent would be tolerated but not fully trusted by the Portuguese coach.Mourinho rarely gave Rashford a sustained run of games as a centre forward, preferring to use him on the flanks while Romelu Lukaku monopolised playing time, even though the Belgian was often inconsistent.– Hunger and desire –By the early stages of this season, Rashford was growing disillusioned.He scored just twice for United between August and December, and Mourinho’s acerbic tongue hardly helped ease his player’s fears that his career was stalling.last_img read more

Over 800 Students Learning in Bad Conditions

first_imgRivercess County lawmaker Francis S. Paye has expressed his frustration with the deplorable facilities of Cestos High School, where over 800 students are attending classes.Rep. Paye has therefore sought the indulgence of his fellow lawmakers to help resolve its terrible state of affairs.Representative Paye said the library, laboratory and the auditorium of the county’s only public high school are horrible, which is inevitably impeding growth in the learning process.He stated that students are facing pathetic conditions in the absence of Physics, Economics, Geography and Language Arts instructors.The Rivercess lawmaker, in his letter read on the 29th day sitting of the House of Representatives on Tuesday, May 20, reminded his colleagues of his initial letter dated July 16, 2013, which has since been forwarded to the Committee on Education to investigate and report in two weeks.The Rivercess County District # 2 Representative further complained to Plenary on the denial of salary payments to the county education officers for over two years.“You will certainly recall, our dear Honorable Speaker, that on July 16, 2013, we did forward to your honorable office a communication complaining about the deplorable situations at the Cestos High School, involving the employment of individuals placed on supplementary payrolls but had reportedly not been paid, coupled with poor conditions of the library, laboratory and auditorium regularly used by the administration and students in effectively governing the affairs of the school and the community,” Rep. Paye wrote.According to Representative Paye’s previous letter, the school’s auditorium was broken down to create more space for offices for the County and District Education Officers and expand the auditorium with the belief that there was an allotment of US$100,000, which is yet to be fruitful.The letter further said the newly appointed CEO has not been paid for 19 years because according to the Personnel Division at the Ministry of Education, the former CEO, Mr. James Bayogar, who was transferred to the Head Office, is still receiving the salary.“Also, the Education Ministry has five District Education Officers (DEOs) in the county, one of whom has also not been paid for 19 months,” the letter said. “The Education Ministry has also failed to provide vehicle for the county to conduct effective supervision of schools.”Meanwhile, members of the House of Representatives on Tuesday have voted unanimously for the letter to be forwarded to the Committee on Education as reminder to investigate and report to Plenary within two (2) weeks.LShare this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Not so pretty in pink for the Ice Dogs

first_img 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! “There was nothing good about that game,” said coach Rick Adduono after a lengthy postgame meeting with his team. “The first and second periods were awful. We played like we didn’t want the puck ? didn’t want to hit anybody. It was like men playing against boys. “It’s a critical time and we need to win, and that’s the bottom line.” It took the Ice Dogs exactly three minutes to fall behind 2-0 on a pair of soft goals by Kyle Peto, on a shot from the point, and Scott Burt, off a break down the left wing. That was the end for starting goalie Brett Jaeger, who, after just the two shots, was pulled in favor on Mike Brown. However, the goaltending switch proved to do nothing, as the rest of the team seemed equally unfocused and out of sync until the final 10 minutes. LONG BEACH – The Ice Dogs were pretty in pink Friday night. Pretty ugly, for the most part. center_img Wearing pink-lined jerseys for their Pink in the Rink breast cancer awareness promotion, the Ice Dogs were thoroughly dominated before their late rally came up short in a 5-3 loss to Idaho Steelheads before a crowd of 1,933 at the Long Beach Arena.

Liverpool transfer news: Reds signing could ruin Man United deal and more reports

first_img Samuel Eto’o: free agent – Good news for Liverpool fans: Eto’o wants to be a Gunner, say the paper that will go unnamed. Many Kopites were underwhelmed by the link with Eto’o, who still very much remains a back-up option for Rodgers. Ajax are also interested in the Cameroon attacker. 4 4 Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers is hoping he has not finished his summer shopping yet.There’s still a Luis Suarez-shaped hole in the Anfield changing room and the boss hopes to bring in another goal scorer to add strength in depth up front.“There’s maybe an area or two we will look at, but if the right players become available then we will look to do something,” Rodgers said.Rickie Lambert has been brought in, while Belgium World Cup striker Divock Origi has been loaned to Lille for the season, which leaves Daniel Sturridge as the main man for the Reds in terms of conventional strikers. Former Liverpool star Steve Nicol, meanwhile, reckons Wilfried Bony is a forward his old club should target.Take a look at the gallery above, as talkSPORT brings you the latest on the search for another goal machine.And let us know who you think the Reds should target in the remainder of the summer window… Edinson Cavani: deal for PSG star could also scupper Man United’s ambitions – German publication Bild carry the Falcao reports from the Mirror, but add that Cavani is an option for the Reds, too. In addition, if the PSG striker did move to Anfield, then Angel di Maria would be free to move from Real Madrid to PSG, scuppering any hopes Man United hold of landing the coveted winger. 4 4 Radamel Falcao: on his way from Monaco? Click the arrow to see the latest on other reported Liverpool striker targets – Brendan Rodgers has admitted Liverpool are still in the marker for a striker and the Reds have been linked with some of the most lethal finishers on the continent. There is a glimmer of hope a deal for Falcao – yes, Falcao! – can be done, according to the Mirror. All the talk was that Falcao has his heart set on a move to Real Madrid, despite his past success with city rivals Atletico – he won the 2012 Europa League in red and white stripes – but the chances of a transfer to the Spanish capital this summer are slim. He’s keen to leave France and Rodgers is apparently willing to wait until the transfer deadline and offer Falcao a year-long loan, to tempt him across the English Channel. Ezequiel Lavezzi: PSG – He’s not a striker, but the Daily Star claim talks on a new contract at PSG have stalled to leave Liverpool on alert. Apparently Rodgers would consider the Argentine forward, whose pace and trickery would fit into his Liverpool side. Lavezzi has dazzled over the past few years, first at Napoli and now in Paris. The player may cost £20m.last_img read more


first_imgFROM NEIL DOHERTY AT FIR PARK: THERE were rumours all around Glasgow this morning that defeat for Celtic here against Motherwell today would have spelled the end of Neil Lennon’s time in charge of the Hoops.The fans have been getting restless in recent weeks as Rangers, who have spent very little money, seem to be racing away with the title already.Today Celtic came to Fir Park and, inspired by Derry supersub Paddy McCourt, went home with three points in the bag. And a great deal of relief for players and fans alike, especially the few dozen fans who travelled once again from County Donegal. The result leaves Celtic 12 points behind Rangers with a game in hand.Michael Higdon had headed Mothewell into an 11th-minute lead but Anthony Stokes replied from close range just three minutes later.The turning point came 13 minutes from the end when Paddy McCourt replaced Samaras for the Hoops.The finest dribbler in the Scottish game ran at the terrified Motherwell defence three minutes later, and as they backed off, McCourt fed Stokes to his left who fired a ball across the face of the goal for Gary Hooper to score with the easiest of tap-ins. Motherwell’s hopes of a comeback were over soon afterwards when Tim Clancy was sent off for a foolish kick at Hooper.And after Thursday’s 3-1 Europa League win over Rennes at Parkhead, Lennon said the result showed his side are up for the title fight.He told ESPN TV: “On the back of what was a really physical game on Thursday to come here and win, it speaks volumes for the players.“We know they’ve got it. They’ve got talent in abundance.”THE HOOPS REPORT: SUPER-SUB McCOURT INSPIRES CELTS TO VICTORY was last modified: November 6th, 2011 by BrendaShare 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:Celticceltic fcmotherwellNeil LennonPaddy McCourtlast_img read more
