Messi and Argentina out for revenge after Copa controversy Best player in MLS? Zlatan wasn’t even the best player in LA! ‘I’m getting better’ – Can Man Utd flop Fred save his Old Trafford career? Why Barcelona god Messi will never be worshipped in the same way in Argentina Paul Scholes, Nicky Butt, Phil Neville, Gary Neville and Giggs have already had a taste of football club ownership with non-league side Salford City, with Beckham the only famed academy graduate not involved in that venture — although he is in the process of launching an MLS franchise in Miami.It is a big step up from the National League to the Premier League for the United old boys, but O’Neill feels their strong ties to the club, and the financial clout they are able to generate, will see them complete a takeover in the future.O’Neill told The Mirror: “I honestly think that the Class of ’92 have got their sights fixed on owning United one day.”I am sure they would deny it at the moment — but it really does make sense when you put all the pieces together.”The Neville brothers, Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes and Nicky Butt have taken over a small non-league club in Salford City and are now finding out what it is like to run a football club from a practical point of view. Why? Is Salford City really the summit of their ambitions as football club owners?”They are obviously on a much smaller scale than United, but going in at that level is giving the Class of ’92 a really practical education in football club ownership.”It would take a serious offer to remove the Glazers from the Old Trafford boardroom, but O’Neill is confident that the funds could be generated — with Beckham part of the fold — and a new era welcomed in at the Theatre of Dreams.He added: “When you look closely you will see they have got some huge financial backers.”Most people are aware that Valencia owner Peter Lim has invested heavily in Salford City. But Lim is small-time compared to some of the Chinese investors who have been helping Gary Neville and Ryan Giggs buy up huge swathes of Manchester city centre for redevelopment.”Even if Manchester United are now worth between £2 billion and £3 billion, I don’t think buying the club would be a problem for the kind of investors that they are now doing business with.”Butt is the only member of the Class of ’92 currently involved with United, with the former England international midfielder now the head of coaching within the Red Devils’ academy system.

Brazilian star Neymar opened up on his difficult upbringing and revealed how a lack of food and money was what ultimately made him the footballer he is todayAt 26 years old, Neymar has enjoyed a glittering football career which has seen him represent some of the biggest clubs in history in Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain.He’s also a Champions League winner and has tasted a lot of domestic glory in both Spain and France over the last five years.Neymar’s dribbling skills, along with his tricks and creativity, have gathered a lot of admirers in the past with some comparing him to Brazil greats Ronaldinho and Pele.But, in a very open and honest interview, Neymar opened up on his humble upbringing and told the story of what prompted him to become one of the world’s best and richest players.“There’s a story with my mum and I think most people know it,” Neymar told YouTube channel O Primo Rico.Neymar responds to PSG criticism with a stunning winner Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – September 14, 2019 Despite all the backlash he got today at Parc des Princes, Neymar responded by scoring a stunning winner vs Strasbourg.We all knew that Neymar’s…“I really wanted to eat cookies but we didn’t have any, so my mum said: ‘Son we don’t have more money, there’s no way. I’ll owe you this week, maybe next week when dad gets his payment, we can buy it.’“At the same time I told her, ‘Mum it’s OK. One day I will be very rich. I’ll buy a cookie factory so I can eat whenever I want.’“My mum cries when she tells that story because it was really touching for her.”“I think it was by the time I was 14 or 15 years old that I realised I wouldn’t lack anything anymore if I did things right, if I had my parents take care of everything.”Neymar has since returned to Brazil to recover from a groin problem and will miss PSG’s game against Nantes at the Parc Des Princes, which begins at 21:00 (CET) today.
The 25-year-old English defender believes he has what it takes to play in England’s highest football level.Tommie Hoban started his professional career in 2011 with Watford.There, he scored two goals in 54 appearances as a defender.He was loaned to Wealdstone in 2012, then to Blackburn Rovers in the 2016-2017 season.His latest loan cames this summer, as he joined Aberdeen in the Scottish Premier League.But the 25-year-old believes he has what it takes to play in England’s highest football level.“Unfortunately for me it’s been one thing after another,” he tells The42.“You do get to a point where you have to ask yourself if you can go back to it again.”“I was devastated, to be honest,” he says.“You try to stay as positive as you can, but when so much time in your career is going to waste it does get hard to keep your spirits up. If you get too down it can become a negative cycle which can be really hard to get out of.”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.“When the injury happened, my son was a few weeks away from being born, so you’re starting to think about his future as well. ‘How many more times can I go through this?’ — that’s what you’re asking yourself,” he added.“I had already been looking into a few other things, doing some extra studying outside of football just to prepare for the worst-case scenario if it ever got to that stage.”“My dad has a business in financial advising and it’s something I’ve always had an interest in,” he recalled.“It’s hard to explain, but even when you get back to fitness, you’ve missed so much football that your body doesn’t feel the same as it did before. You have to make a lot of adjustments. Your recovery takes longer and that can take a bit of getting used to.”“Obviously it has been great to be back playing recently,” said the Watford loanee.“I feel fit now but I still have issues sometimes with pain. I’ve had to take tablets before and after games. That can all take a toll on you. But being part of a winning team, as I have been in the last few weeks, is a feeling that not many things can come close to.”…I know the club will bounce back to where they belong soon and I wish all the players, staff and fans all the best for the future!— Tommie Hoban (@tommiehoban05) May 7, 2017
SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – More parents in San Diego County vaccinate their children on average, compared with those across the state and nation, according to a survey released Thursday by the county Health and Human Services Agency.The survey revealed that 80.6 percent of county children between 19 and 35 months have received recommended vaccines. That’s just above the federal government’s Healthy People 2020 recommended target of 80 percent.The percent of fully immunized children in the state and nation is 65.3 and 70.7 percent, meanwhile.“We’re ahead of California and the United States, and that is great news for our children,” said county public health officer Wilma Wooten. “The higher the vaccination rates, the lower the risks of children getting sick and infecting others.”County staff conducted nearly 4,000 surveys and made more than 550,000 random calls between July 2016 and May 2017 to gather data.Interviewers asked questions regarding vaccination status across different age groups to determine how many people have up-to-date immunizations. Interviews were conducted in multiple languages to secure a more comprehensive sampling of the local population, according to the county.The percent of county adolescents between 13 and 17 years old who have been vaccinated against chickenpox, Tdap and meningococcal disease also exceed federal targets as well as state and national averages.However, additional education is needed on the human papillomavirus vaccine’s ability to protect against cancer, Wooten said. Only 54 percent of local adolescents were up-to-date on the HPV vaccine. That’s higher than state and national averages of 49 and 43 percent, respectively, but below the federal goal of 80 percent.HPV causes most cervical cancers, as well as cancers of the vulva, vagina, penis, rectum, anus and throat, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.Influenza vaccine data was more encouraging.Eighty-one percent of county residents 65 years or older got a flu shot during the 2015-16 season, according to the county survey, which surpasses the federal goal of 70 percent that also was the average statewide and nationally.The survey also showed that 67 percent of high-risk people between the ages of 18 and 64 — including those with heart, lung, diabetes and immune system problems — also got their flu shot, compared with 42 percent in the state and 46 percent across the U.S.Survey data is important in planning additional education and outreach campaigns, Wooten said.“Vaccines are the most effective tool we have to keep San Diegans healthy,” Wooten said. “We must do all we can to inform our San Diego communities about how to protect themselves from vaccine preventable diseases.” Posted: July 26, 2018 San Diego vaccination rates higher than state and national rates, health survey says July 26, 2018 KUSI Newsroom KUSI Newsroom, Categories: Local San Diego News FacebookTwitter
