Mata: Giggs has got what it takes

Posted On Sep 21 2020 by

first_imgJuan Mata feels Ryan Giggs is the perfect man to lead Manchester United. Press Association Giggs’ reign as United manager got off to the best start possible on Saturday as the Red Devils strolled to a 4-0 win over Norwich at Old Trafford. After a slightly cumbersome first half United sprang into life after the break, playing with width, pace and flair – just as Giggs had demanded. Mata, another of Moyes’ signings, was happy to end a tumultuous few days for the club on a high. “It has been a difficult week for us,” the Spaniard told MUTV. “A change of manager is never good news because it means that you are not doing the things right but today it was very important to win and give the fans what they deserve.” Moyes made no mention of the United playing squad in his midweek statement, but Mata, for one, was sad to see the 51-year-old go. “I will always be grateful to him because he was the one who brought me here and gave me the chance to play for this amazing club,” said Mata, who signed for United from Chelsea for £37.5million in January. “I wish him and his staff the best in the future.” Giggs admitted he barely slept on the eve of the match as he was worried about dropping some of his team-mates, such as Mata. But it turned out all right for the interim United boss. Norwich never looked like beating David de Gea once the hosts found their rhythm. Giggs was happy with his team’s performance, but he knows he must stay grounded. “I thought we ended the game really well,” said Giggs, who has been told he will be in charge until the end of the season. “It would have been nice if Chicho (Javier Hernandez) had scored a fifth at the end but I can’t get too greedy. “And I can’t get carried away either. It’s the first game. We are at Old Trafford and we are expected to win. “We will look forward to the Sunderland game and hope for the same performance.” Giggs, who is taking his coaching badges, added: “Maybe I should retire now with a 100 per cent record!” Norwich, meanwhile, face a real battle to stay in the Premier League. The Canaries, who have lost their last five matches, face Chelsea and Arsenal in their remaining two games and interim manager Neil Adams knows time is running out for his men. “There are two massive, massive games now, and we need to take points from both of them,” Adams said. “I’ve seen character in the dressing room. There are people in there now who are hurt.” Giggs may not be under consideration for the post on a full-time basis, but many of the 75,208 fans who were inside Old Trafford wish he was. Mata is also a big fan of Giggs, even though he was dropped to the bench by the Welshman for Saturday’s game. “If we speak about Ryan we speak about a Manchester United person,” said Mata, who scored twice following his introduction on the hour. “He was very successful here as a player and now he is leading the team. We are all happy because who is better to do it?” Giggs said prior to kick-off that he wanted to “restore the positivity” around the club following an extremely disappointing campaign under David Moyes. The 40-year-old certainly did that. The greeting Giggs received from the fans as he strode down the touchline in his club suit was real Roy of the Rovers stuff. There was little mention of Moyes at Old Trafford. The ‘Chosen One’ banner had gone and Giggs did his best to make a clean break from the Scot’s reign. Giggs made six changes to the team that lost 2-0 to Everton in Moyes’ final game in charge while Marouane Fellaini – the Scot’s £27.5million signing – was not even on the bench. last_img read more

Close friends Farrior, Foote compete for same job

Posted On Aug 12 2020 by

first_imgby Alan RobinsonAP Sports Writer LATROBE, Pa. (AP)—Larry Foote is the mouth of the Pittsburgh Steelers’ locker room. James Farrior is its conscience.Foote loosens up his teammates with his nonstop chattering and incessant arguing on any subject. Farrior is the defense’s acknowledged leader, a reliable perfectionist and team captain who is almost always in the right position to make a tackle or shut down a play. WARMING UP—Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker James Farrior warms up before the first practice session at the NFL football team’s training camp in Latrobe, Pa., July 31. SIGNALING—Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker Larry Foote gives a signal during the NFL football team’s training camp in Latrobe, Pa., Aug. 1. Until now, Farrior looked to be one of the most irreplaceable of players on a defense that is the NFL’s best statistically over the past five seasons. A two-time Pro Bowl linebacker and former team MVP, he has started 70 consecutive games—every one since 2005. He routinely does his job so well, it allows players such as Troy Polamalu and LaMarr Woodley to make the plays that do get noticed.Still, Farrior hit some rough patches last season, especially during a difficult-to-explain losing streak against the Bengals, Chiefs, Ravens, Raiders and Browns that ultimately kept the Steelers out of the playoffs.Several teams picked on Farrior when slid into pass coverage, and a defense that was the NFL’s best in nearly every major statistical category the previous season lost fourth-quarter leads five times. The Steelers also ranked poorly in getting off the field on third and fourth downs.“Definitely, we felt like we could have played a lot better and we’re looking to pick it up,” Farrior said.To do that, the Steelers brought back Foote and cornerback Bryant McFadden, another former Super Bowl starter who moved on to a different team in 2009—Arizona for him—and didn’t especially like it.They also drafted outside linebacker Jason Worilds in the second round to groom into a pass rusher. And they’re experimenting in camp with last year’s first-round pick, defensive end Ziggy Hood, sliding in for a few plays at nose tackle.Foote left the Steelers partly because he knew 2007 first-round pick Lawrence Timmons was ready to start. Timmons finished fourth on the team in tackles and third in sacks (seven) and, at age 24, is one of only two defensive starters who are 28 or younger.Timmons isn’t about to lose his job so, if Foote is to play most of the time, Farrior must lose his.“Right now on paper I am (a backup), but the coaches told me I’m going to play,” Foote said. “It’s up to my talent and how fast I get back into the swing of things that will determine my playing time. I’m just trying to put my cards on the table and see what happens.”To keep Foote from replacing him, Farrior made certain his offseason regimen was more difficult than ever. He spent the last few weeks before camp—a time when some players fit in a quick vacation—working out for three hours-plus a day in the Florida heat with a trainer.Farrior believes he’s in such good shape that his age shouldn’t matter, even if he knows it does.“Every year, everybody has to prove themselves all over again,” Farrior said. “Especially me.”Not that Farrior isn’t enjoying having Foote back.“It’s great to have that loudmouth back in the locker room. We missed him last year, not having his voice around,” Farrior said. “He was one of my best friends when he was here. Hopefully we can get that back going, that good relationship that we had.” Last season changed everything for Foote and Farrior, the starting inside linebackers on the Steelers’ Super Bowl-winning teams during the 2005 and 2008 seasons.Foote was miserable losing in Detroit, leaving Pittsburgh as a free agent only so he could remain a starter. Farrior was Pittsburgh’s top tackler for the fourth consecutive season, but the quality of his play admittedly slipped as the Steelers went 9-7 and missed the playoffs.Back in Pittsburgh this season, Foote intends to remain a starter at age 30. To do that, he must beat out the 35-year-old Farrior, the oldest starter on one of the NFL’s oldest defenses—and a player who isn’t the least bit interested in giving up his job. Not even to a close friend.“I feel like I’ve always got to compete and that’s the mindset since I’ve been in the NFL, there’s always somebody out there younger, trying to take your job,” Farrior said. “They’re always looking to replace you.”last_img read more

Blackpool chairman Karl Oyston admits five breaches of FA rules over foul exchange with supporter

Posted On Jan 3 2020 by

first_imgBlackpool chairman Karl Oyston has admitted to five breaches of Football Association rules for a text-message exchange in which he called a Seasiders supporter “a retard”.The FA first opened a probe into Oyston’s conversations with fan Stephen Smith back in December and followed that up by bringing a charge against him in March.However, Oyston denied that charge one month later and challenged it as “unlawful”, a claim which the governing body last week announced was dismissed by an arbitral tribunal.Now, the FA has confirmed that a hearing on the matter will take place next Tuesday.Oyston’s attempt to quash the FA’s charge centred on his argument that his exchange with Smith was a private one and should therefore be exempt from their rules.However, a tribunal rejected that notion and gave the FA the green light to continue with disciplinary proceedings against the 47-year-old.Oyston has been charged with using “abusive and/or insulting words”, with reference to disability, which amounts to five breaches of FA Rule E3.Oyston’s run-in with Smith occurred after the chairman’s mobile number was posted on a social media website.The chairman later apologised for the texts’ content in a statement published on the club’s official website and stressed he had regretted responding to personal abuse.However, in the months since, the demonstrations and protests from Blackpool fans against Oyston’s running of the club have only intensified.

Green Building Tip: Test Your HVAC System

Posted On Dec 16 2019 by

first_imgEven well-designed mechanical systems can become sources of indoor air quality problems (or can waste energy) if they are incorrectly installed, so it’s important to make sure heating and cooling systems work as designed before the house is occupied. It’s critical to test the systems (including duct work) before anyone moves into the house. That’s almost always cheaper than dealing with the equipment after problems become obvious.This testing — sometimes called “commissioning” — should follow the “TAB” approach: test, adjust, balance.For homes with a forced-air system, it’s essential to check:Air flow at each registerOverall duct system tightnessAir flow over the coilRefrigerant chargeIt’s also essential to check the combustion efficiency of the furnace or boiler burner; to check exhaust fan air flow; and to check ventilation system air flow.—_This GREEN BUILDING TIP is from our Strategy Generator.
