Louis van Gaal tells critics: Old Trafford was not always Theatre of Dreams

first_img “We have to improve that and I hope we shall score against CSKA Moscow but I know it is very difficult because they are very organised and they shall play more defensively than Crystal Palace.” The fact that United’s goal drought has coincided with Van Gaal’s decision to move Wayne Rooney back up front has not gone unnoticed. Ruud van Nistelrooy, one of the most famed goal scorers in United’s history, claims Anthony Martial is far more suited to the central striker’s role at United, and with the fantastic start the Frenchman has made at Old Trafford, few would argue against the former Holland forward. But Van Gaal has not lost any faith in Rooney, who turned 30 last weekend, even though he has scored just two Premier League goals this season. “I have still confidence in Wayne Rooney,” Van Gaal said. “Wayne Rooney is a fantastic player so expectation is much higher than another player in another club, but you have to also give players time to come back in a certain shape and that is what we are doing and I have confidence in this player but he gives also more than only scoring goals. “He is our captain but also an example for the whole team. He has more credits than any other player. I have explained that to the group already one-and-a-half years ago.” Alan Shearer has suggested Rooney should be given a fortnight off to “recharge his batteries”. Interestingly, Van Gaal would not rule out the possibility of giving Rooney time off in the future. “Yes, but not only for Wayne,” Van Gaal said when asked if he would consider giving Rooney a break. “I have done that for all my players. I have done that, for example Paddy McNair was a week in Ireland last week. “When we think it is better, I do that. It is not a big issue for me because even when I was a very young trainer-coach I did it with Jari Litmanen, he had problems in the months of November and December, so I did it. I sent him on holidays. “That is not a big issue for me but it is more a big issue for the players. They are not so easy to convince.” Morgan Schneiderlin missed training on the eve of the game against CSKA because of a “personal issue”, but could be available for selection. Phil Jones trained away from the rest of the squad on Monday morning, but is available. Memphis Depay also trained separately from the group, but is not expected to feature at Old Trafford. If United fail to score in Tuesday’s Champions League match against CSKA Moscow, it will be the first time they have drawn a blank in four consecutive games since 1992. A host of former players, most notably Paul Scholes, have criticised Van Gaal for his tactics and some supporters have bemoaned the often dull style of play. But Van Gaal has reminded his doubters that United have not always enjoyed unbridled success. “I have seen periods and tendencies in Manchester United like in other clubs. It was not always the big Theatre of Dreams,” the United manager said. “I am sorry to say that, but it is logical also so now we are making hopefully history but it takes time. “I have said that before. “It is only a moment in the process. We have stood first in the Premier League. “Now we have a bad period when you don’t score because football is (about) scoring goals. United topped the table at the end of September, but their form has dipped of late. Van Gaal’s men have recorded three consecutive 0-0 draws against Manchester City, Crystal Palace and Middlesbrough, who knocked United out of the Capital One Cup on penalties after the stalemate. Press Association Louis van Gaal has hit back at his critics again, reminding them that Old Trafford “was not always the Theatre of Dreams.” last_img read more

KSI backtracks after saying Logan Paul was ‘going to f—ing die’ in fight

first_imgBoxing promoter Eddie Hearn seemed visibly upset by the comment. He immediately told the YouTube stars to “keep it civil.”Warning: Video contains explicit language.KSI VS. LOGAN PAUL 2: How to watch the highly anticipated boxing matchHearn admitted afterward to Boxing Social that the language KSI used doesn’t have a place in boxing.”They don’t know enough boxing, they don’t respect the game enough to think about what they’re saying,” Hearn said. “I mean fighters say stuff like that all the time, [but] no one really means it. But I didn’t like it when that was said multiple times. I’ve heard it this week, last week, the week before. And I don’t think they know enough about the game to know that they shouldn’t be saying that.”KSI listened to the complaints and issued a statement on the matter Friday.Just want to clarify a statement I made yesterday at the press conference. I don’t intend to kill Logan physically tomorrow, I only intend to kill his youtube career and spirit. After this fight, I still want Logan to be alive and well.— KSI (@KSIOlajidebt) November 8, 2019KSI VS. LOGAN PAUL 2: Why are these two YouTube stars fighting? While KSI was clearly being tongue-in-cheek with his comment, there’s a reason why Hearn wasn’t pleased with that langauge being used. Over the past year, boxing has seen the deaths of Maxim Dadashev, Hugo Santillan and Patrick Day, so even the slightest suggestion that there’s intent to kill is in poor taste. KSI received criticism for the language he used during Thursday’s press conference leading up his fight against Logan Paul on Saturday.At one point, late in the media session, KSI said Paul was “going to f—ing die” in the ring. Paul was stunned by that comment responding loudly, “Death?” Paul made similar comments during the second press conference leading up the rematch.”I might kill this man,” Paul said repeatedly.Paul and KSI are set to fight Nov. 9.last_img read more


Local Environmentalists Concerned About Trump Presidency

first_imgBy Joseph SapiaThe election of Donald J. Trump as president has some area environmentalists concerned, especially regarding climate change and drilling for gas and oil in the Atlantic Ocean.“We think the Trump administration will be very bad for the environment,” said Colette Buchanan, a Monmouth Beach resident who is president of the Monmouth County Audubon Society, a bird-watching and conservation group.“President Trump will be an unnatural disaster unleashed on the environment,” said Andrew L. Chambarry, an Asbury Park lawyer who is a founder of Citizens in Opposition to Beach Restrictive Access (COBRA) and serves on the legal issues team of the Surfrider Foundation.In January, the presidency passes from President Barack Obama, not viewed as an overt protector of the environment, to Trump, not viewed as an environmentalist at all.“Trump and his team will dismantle regulations, which would have helped guard against climate change,” Chambarry said. “His policies will benefit big business and corporate greed. The effects will be widespread and could lead to hasten an environmental crisis that many say is imminent.”Backing off on the prevention of climate change will create a domino effect, with other countries emboldened to do the same, said Bill Williams, co-chair of the Surfrider Foundation’s Jersey Shore Chapter.“Sea levels will rise and there is not enough money or sand to dredge and fill our way out of this problem in New Jersey,” Williams said. “With the policies Mr. Trump has proposed, we need to get serious about other strategies like retreat along our coast.”Debbie Mans, executive director of the Keyport-based NY/NJ Baykeeper, a group concerned with the NY-NJ Harbor Estuary, said “New Jersey is surrounded by water and we have already experienced the impacts of increased storm events and localized flooding.“His promises to roll back regulations addressing the emissions contributing to climate change and lack of commitments to adapt to sea-level rise place New Jersey coastal communities and industries at risk, from Newark to Cape May (and up) to Trenton,” said Mans.“Trump denies that human-cause climate change is real and has no intention of addressing it,” Buchanan said.“President-Elect Trump’s platform, repeated campaign pledges, First 100 Days agenda, and denial of climate change could cause profound harm to the ocean environment including making deep cuts to the Environmental Protection Agency and the Department of Education, re-opening of oil and gas exploration and extraction in the Atlantic, increasing fossil fuel production, and rolling back clean water and emissions rules,” said Cindy Zipf, executive director of the Sandy Hook-based Clean Ocean Action environmental group. “These do not bode well for marine life and our clean ocean economy.“However, it is important to note, the actual Trump administration’s ocean policy is uncertain and time will tell,” Zipf said. “What is certain is that Clean Ocean Action will continue to be vigilant, vocal and vigorous in protecting and sustaining the ocean, and New Jersey and New York’s $50 billion tourism and fishing economies that depend upon it.”Buchanan and Mans worry the federal Environmental Protection Agency would be weakened or eliminated under Trump.For the Mid-Atlantic region, Obama issued a five-year moratorium on offshore gas and oil drilling. This “proactively prevented oil spills for the next five years that could greatly affect our recreation, fishing and tourism industries,” Williams said.But Williams fears Trump will lift the moratorium as soon as he can.“Drilling in the Atlantic will pose serious threats to many marine species, while reducing areas for fishing and boating,” Chambarry said. “Environmental disaster could reach the beaches of New Jersey at any time. We will have to prepare for such a sad state of affairs under President Trump.”“I am not sure President Trump has the attention span and insight to focus on long-term, gradual progress and am worried he simply will react and focus on short-term goals that result in a reduction in man-nature sustainability,” said Rik van Hemmen, who lives in Fair Haven and is active with Navesink River boating and environmental issues.Van Hemmen said he was not pressuring Trump to make the environmental progress Obama has made.“But I would be very disappointed in any steps that would be backwards,” van Hemmen said. “Such behavior is unnecessarily costly and counters the conservative political outlook, which, as far as I can see, should conform to first, do no harm to the country at large.”Buchanan expressed concerns for wildlife under Trump.“As an organization that is focused on bird conservation, Monmouth County Audubon is concerned that the Endangered Species Act will be weakened or eliminated,” Buchanan said. “Additionally, many North American bird species are already threatened by ongoing climate change.”But Van Hemmen did not expect to see blatant change under Trump.“On the local level, I think we will not see much change,” van Hemmen said. “I hope that our community commitment to sustainable man-nature interaction will simply continue.”Van Hemmen had a greater concern on a wider level, however.“On the national level, I am worried and can only hope for the best,” van Hemmen said. “We often lose sight of what works and what does not work. We often think that any type of regulation is bad, but more often forget these regulations have actually improved our environment and made it fairer to all, rather than a few exploiters.”Van Hemmen noted local environmentalists should not lose focus on their own causes.“No matter what the political situation is, we can always act locally – discover, engage and sustain,” van Hemmen said.last_img read more

Leeds have quickest manager turnover in England after latest sacking

first_imgLeeds’ new manager will be their 11th since April 2013, more than any other team in the English league system.The Championship club parted company with Paul Heckingbottom on Friday, less than four months after his arrival at Elland Road.Former Barnsley boss Heckingbottom replaced Thomas Christiansen at the start of February, but lost eight of his 16 matches in charge as Leeds finished 13th in the Championship.Neil Warnock served for just over a year before leaving in April 2013, and his successor Brian McDermott lasted only until May of the following year.David Hockaday and Darko Milanic also departed before 2014 was out, Neil Redfearn lasted barely six months and Uwe Rosler’s sacking made it four completed reigns inside 16 months. Steve Evans lasted seven months, Garry Monk nearly a year and Christiansen served from June 2017 to February 2018, while Heckingbottom was in charge for just 115 days.Watford are the only team to rival Leeds in this timeframe, with Javi Gracia becoming their ninth manager in five years when he succeeded Marco Silva.That total was bumped up by the resignation due to illness of Oscar Garcia after less than a month in charge, but also saw his successor Billy McKinlay sacked after a scarcely believable nine days. Leeds have gone through 11 managers in a little over five years 1last_img read more
