Paul Pogba kills everything – Morgan declares

first_imgWillie Morgan has launched a scathing attack against Paul Pogba, claiming the Manchester United midfielder is too slow and cumbersome.The United legend claims that Jose Mourinho must drop the Frenchman in order to have a chance of defeating Liverpool on Sunday.United travel to Anfield this weekend looking to reduce the gap between both teams to 13 points, after a disastrous start to the 2018-19 season.The Red Devils have only managed to win seven of their 16 matches in the league so far and face the possibility of missing out on a UEFA Champions League, already eight points behind Chelsea down in sixth place.Pogba has been criticized for his poor performances over the last few weeks and seems disinterested on the pitch, with rumours of a possible move to Barcelona on the horizon.“The game against Fulham, albeit it was Fulham, they played really well,” Morgan told Love Sports Radio.Harry Maguire, Manchester UnitedLiverpool 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.“They were quick, they were moving around, there was no Pogba in the team. He kills everything anyway, he’s just so slow and cumbersome. It was the first time they actually looked like a team.”“If he puts Matic and Pogba in midfield, the game stops every time they get the ball,” Morgan added.“So you have got to get the young lads in, a bit of movement, move the ball quicker. Rashford is a free player and can play anywhere, the kid is really good. I think we’ll get a result.”“Again it comes down to who does he play. If he plays Pogba and Matic we won’t win. If he plays the team that he played against Fulham I think we’ll get a result.”last_img read more

COPY LINKAD Loading … Close Thomas Peter-Pool/Getty ImagesPakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan said he feared another security incident with India, after the two nuclear-armed countries engaged in a dangerous escalation that fuelled “war hysteria” in New Delhi ahead of elections next month.In an interview with the Financial Times on Tuesday, Khan said tensions were still high even after the crisis over a militant attack in Kashmir had eased with the release of Indian Air Force pilot captured by Pakistani forces.”I’m still apprehensive before the elections, I feel that something could happen,” Khan told the newspaper.Pakistan and India, which have fought three wars since gaining independence from Britain in 1947, passed through a crisis last month after India accused Pakistan of being behind a militant attack that killed 40 policemen in Pulwama, in Indian-controlled Kashmir in February.Islamabad denied responsibility for the attack, which was claimed by Pakistan-based militant group Jaish-e Mohammed, but the attack prompted India to launch a cross border air strike against what it said was a militant training camp in Pakistan.Pakistan responded with air strikes of its own and in an ensuing dog fight over Kashmir, at least one Indian plane was shot down and its pilot captured. The pilot was subsequently returned to India, leading to an easing in the crisis.Khan has offered to hold talks with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi over the issue, the latest in a long series of confrontations over Kashmir, a majority Muslim region that is claimed by both countries. However, he said Modi’s government appeared to be using the tensions for electoral purposes.”When Pulwama happened I felt that Mr Modi’s government used that to build this war hysteria,” Khan told the Financial Times. “The Indian public should realise that this is all for winning the elections, it’s nothing to do with the real issues of the subcontinent.”He repeated a denial that Pakistan was involved in the Pulwama attack and said a crackdown had been launched against militant groups.Although the immediate crisis has eased, parts of Pakistani airspace continue to be closed to overflights, causing severe disruption to several international airline operations.center_img Our Fight is for Kashmir not against the Kashmiri’s says Narendra Modilast_img read more

Senator Cruz Explains Lack Of Town Hall Meetings

first_img X Listen 00:00 /01:14 Ed MayberrySenator Ted Cruz addresses employees of Atec, a Sugar Land-based NASA subcontractor.Democratic Representative Beto O’Rourke is taking a page out of Cruz’s 2012 campaign playbook by announcing his bid early and taking a grassroots approach. Those are the methods Senator Cruz says worked best for him four years ago. “You’ll recall nobody thought I had a prayer. Nobody thought we had any chance at all. All the money, all the institutional power in the state was opposed to us, and we saw an incredible grassroots army rise up.” Senator Cruz doesn’t appear to be concerned with calls from constituents for town hall meetings. He says instead he’s spending his time with small businesses like Atec in Sugar Land. He toured the facilities of that NASA subcontractor, saying that jobs and economic growth are his priorities. “And so I’m continuing to travel the state to hold gatherings like the one I just did here at Atec, a small business — meeting with Texans, listening to their concerns, answering their questions and fighting for them.”  Senator Cruz chairs the Science and Space subcommittee and authored the bipartisan NASA authorization — the first one in seven years. O’Rourke has little name recognition across Texas, which hasn’t elected a democrat statewide since 1994. To embed this piece of audio in your site, please use this code: Sharelast_img read more

Norwegian Air puts the brakes on Canada launch at least until spring

first_img This is an updated version of the story that ran in the April 5th, 2018 issue of Travelweek. To get Travelweek delivered to your agency for free, subscribe here. TORONTO — Norwegian Air says its arrival into the Canadian market will be delayed until spring 2019.In an interview with news service Bloomberg, the low-cost carrier’s CEO blamed the slowdown on the delayed delivery of two B737s.Last month the Canadian Transportation Agency (CTA) gave Norwegian permission to begin selling tickets for summer flights. While there are still more hoops that the carrier needs to jump through, including getting the green light from Transport Canada, the CTA’s approval was seen the first step to Norwegian possibly starting transatlantic flights out of Canada this summer, as early as July 23.A four-week delay getting the new B737s has derailed Norwegian’s plans to launch transatlantic flights from this market, says CEO Bjorn Kjos. “We got a slight delay, not much, but it gave us a month shorter pre-sale period,” Kjos told Bloomberg. Time was running out to market the new Europe flights, prompting the LCC to push off its launch in Canada until at least spring 2019.Norwegian wouldn’t be the first LCC to come into Canada with transatlantic flights. Primera Air recently sent introductory $199 one-way fares into the market on its Toronto-London (Stansted) route for summer 2018 flights. WOW air has made inroads in the Canadian market too. The Icelandic-owned LCC started flying out of Canada in 2016.The LCC phenomenon certainly isn’t new either. Southwest Airlines got the ball rolling in the U.S. in the 1970s and then fares in Europe took a dive with the launch of Ryanair and easyJet in the mid-1980s and mid-1990s. Ryanair is now the biggest European airline in terms of passengers flown – or at least it was until last year, when a screw-up with pilot holiday time schedules led to the cancellation of thousands of flights (and Lufthansa Group grabbed the title).Just about every legacy airline has launched its own low-cost carrier too, from Air Canada Rouge to BA’s Level and Air France’s Joon.More news:  Sunwing to further boost Mazatlán service with new flights from OttawaSo what’s different about Norwegian? Most airline analysts point to the carrier’s aggressive growth strategy. In U.S. gateways like New York and L.A., Norwegian came in and quickly established itself with not just one or two European destinations, but many routes, like London, Barcelona, Paris, Rome, Oslo, Stockholm, Amsterdam and Madrid all now available out of New York.In just five years Norwegian has ramped up with nonstop flights to Europe out of more than a dozen U.S. gateways. In the past few days Norwegian checked its newest two cities off its North American growth plan: Chicago (March 25) and Austin (March 27), with nonstop service to London Gatwick. The introductory fares started at US$160 one-way.After launching long-haul flights in 2013 Norwegian now has more than 500 routes servicing a network of 150+ destinations, with long-hauls operated through fully-owned subsidiaries.“We were the first successful low-cost airline to operate between the U.S. and Europe, which we launched back in 2013 and continuously expanded ever since. We now have more transatlantic routes than any other European airline,” says Norwegian Air spokesperson Anders Lindström. “Since we operate an all-Boeing Dreamliner fleet for our long-haul flights (and have one of the youngest and most fuel-efficient fleets in the world), it allows us to keep costs down and offer extremely competitive fares. So it’s low fares but high quality.”Norwegian’s fare model, like most LCCs and ULCCs, also relies heavily on ancillary add-ons for revenue cash cows like baggage fees and inflight meals.Asked about overcapacity on transatlantic routes, if Norwegian comes into the Canadian market, Lindström said: “Norwegian closely monitors and studies all markets it is interested in. If we were worried about overcapacity we would not enter that market, unless we knew we could offer something better and provide more value for money, thereby attracting customers.”Air Canada spokesperson Peter Fitzpatrick says “there has been ‘low cost’ competition on the transatlantic for many years in the form of Air Transat, WOW and Icelandair, and this year will see the addition two new LCCs, Level and Primera, so we are very used to competing successfully in this market by the various means at our disposal.”More news:  ‘Turn around year’ for TPI brings double-digit growthFitzpatrick adds that Air Canada’s goal “is to remain competitive in all markets we serve”, with Air Canada Rouge, branded fares including Tango and the new Economy Basic fares currently available on select flights in North America. “As we always we do, we are monitoring market developments and respond as warranted.”Meanwhile WestJet is pushing ahead with European expansion plans, announcing earlier this year that it will add Paris flights out of Halifax starting May 31, with daily service. WestJet already offers London flights and is looking to grow its international network. And Transat is heading into summer 2018 with 17% more capacity on transatlantic routes and selling prices up 1.7%.Of course low-cost carriers are typically no friend to travel agents, offering little to no commission. Norwegian’s travel agent portal is“We do have quite a large portion of bookings coming through agents, and we have agreements with almost all major U.S. agencies,” says Lindström. “For Canada though, and for now, we are not in BSP.”Norwegian has posted multimillion dollar losses in recent months as it tackles warp speed expansion and rising fuel costs. Financial hurdles and aircraft delays notwithstanding, the carrier is looking for a fleet of 30 long-haul B787s by the end of this summer. All in all Norwegian’s fleet consists of some150 aircraft including Boeing 737-800s, Boeing 737 MAX aircraft and Boeing 787 Dreamliners.This is an updated version of the story that ran in the April 5th, 2018 issue of Travelweek.

infiltration by spies as tension with North Korea surges over its missile and nuclear programmes North Korea has test-fired two missiles over Japan a country it has threatened to destroy Most experts

Camila Giorgi in the second round at Birmingham on Thursday It is only a month since the 22-year-old Ukrainian tasted the euphoria of winning the Italian Open in Rome but while struggling with injury Svitolina slid to a 6-4 4-6 6-2 second-round defeat to a player ranked outside the top 100 Elina Svitolina in action against Italy’s Camila Giorgi during the second round Reuters One of the reasons for such a dramatic contrast was that the tournament is played on lush grass in the English midlands – utterly different to the high bouncing brick dust of the Foro Italico Combined with a sudden change from Wednesday’s fierce heat to drizzle and damp it became hard for Svitolina who has had issues with a foot problem to cope Another was that Giorgi adapted to the slick surface very well hitting some raging forehand drives finding some good angles and occasionally coming to the net effectively She increasingly played close to the standard that two years ago took her to 30 in the world With Dominika Cibulkova having already lost in the first round the two leading seeds have now both departed early following belated withdrawals from four other top-10 players Although this week’s event is only a warm-up for Wimbledon it is a premier-level tournament with high prize money If it proves even the slightest indicator of events at Wimbledon there are some shocks in store when the Grand Slam tournament gets underway on 3 July Svitolina often played well in the second set and broke serve to lead early in the third but her standards dropped away Afterwards she even suggested she would consider pulling out of Wimbledon "There is a question about it" Svitolina admitted "I will talk with my physios The season is very long and I must look at the bigger picture "The heel feels painful and is very sensitive I am disappointed I am out of the tournament but I am not disappointed with my performance because I could not show even 50 percent Also the court was slippery which is

month ago as 80 percent of the US island remained without power Meeting Puerto Rico’s governor Ricardo Rossello in the Oval Office Trump acknowledged the massive scale of the rebuilding effort but defended his administration’s response "We have provided so much so fast we were actually there before the storm hit" Trump said "They got hit dead center" As well as ravaging the electricity grid the storm knocked out bridges closed roads and made clean water for drinking cooking and bathing scarce Asked how he would rank the administration’s response out of ten Trump responded "I give ourselves a ten" "We have done a really great job" When Trump asked Rosello "did we do a great job" the governor said that Trump had met all of his requests But he added that much more needed to be done to avoid a humanitarian disaster He said the authorities aim to have about 30% of the island back with power by the end of the month and 50% by the middle of next month But he warned that without hope Puerto Ricans — who have the right to live in the continental United States — would flee the island in large numbers feeding an economic crisis "What’s going to keep the people there and keep this going is knowing that we have the backing of the White House and knowing that we’re going to have the backing of Congress" he said They need to know he said "that we can have the resources appropriate" to deal with the storm "US citizens of Puerto Rico can come out of this catastrophe stronger than ever before" ‘Not their fault’ Trump had previously raised concerns on the island by warning that federal aid for Puerto Rico will not be open-ended But he indicated Thursday that a mixture of grants and loans could be found to rebuild in particular the electricity grid which was in poor shape before the storm The federal government would have to be paid back before private bondholders he added "We’re helping a lot" Trump said "We’re doing that because we have an obligation to Puerto Rico to humanity to ourselves" Trump also rowed back on some comments that appeared to blame Puerto Ricans for their plight "It’s not the people’s fault they lost their house they were devastated" he said "A person loses his or her house and then they can’t go to work If you lose your house you know it’s hard to go and be a policeman you are trying to have your family live" Vishakapatnam: Discarded opener
