Man U announce £140m debt

first_imgRelatedPosts Player prices may go down after COVID-19 pandemic — Southampton manager Angry Man U fans attack Ed Woodward’s mansion EPL: Newcastle dare Red Devils Manchester United have announced their net debt has increased by almost £140 million in their latest financial figures, even after posting another revenue increase for the first quarter of 2019-20.The startling increase in debt levels from £247.2 million to £384.5 million, a rise of 55.5 per cent, will do little to appease disgruntled fans, unhappy with the way the club is run by the Glazer family owners and executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward.United have posted revenues of £135.4 million for the first quarter of 2019-20, which represents a £400,000 increase on the same period for the previous year.Commercial revenue was £80.4 million, a 5.9 per cent increase on the previous year, but the club are expecting 2020 annual revenue to be down this year to somewhere between £560 million and N580 million, compared to £627.1 million for the year ending June 30, 2019, though the club’s wage bill has dropped slightly.In part that will be due to the club’s lack of Champions League football this season. Broadcasting revenue for the quarter was £32.9 million, a 23.1 per cent and £9.9 million drop on the same quarter the year before.“We have a clear vision in terms of football philosophy and recruitment,” Woodward said. “The significant investments that we have made in recent years in areas such as transfers, recruitment infrastructure, analytics and our academy are already beginning to bear fruit.“We are very proud to be shortly approaching a milestone 4,000th game featuring an academy player, and we are particularly optimistic regarding the considerable young talent currently coming through.“Our ultimate goal is to win trophies by playing exciting football with a team that fuses graduates from our academy with world-class acquisitions.” Tags: Ed Woodwardlast_img read more

Edinburgh too strong for Ulster

first_img Press Association Edinburgh’s interim coaching duo of Steve Scott and Duncan Hodge made a winning start to their tenure when the Scots edged out Ulster 14-8 at Murrayfield to secure only their fifth RaboDirect PRO12 success of the campaign. A try by Stuart McInally plus three penalties by Piers Francis saw the Scots home against an Ulster side for whom Andrew Trimble bagged a try and Paddy Jackson landed a penalty. However, it was Jackson’s lack of accuracy with the boot that proved to be the difference between the sides as he failed with three simple penalties early in the second half. last_img read more

Sherwood hoping for fiery derby

first_img This, though, is the kind of fixture which can give Spurs a timely shot in the arm and Sherwood wants the game to be a throwback to the derby matches he used to play in. “It is a fantastic occasion – always was to play in these games,” the former midfielder told Spurs TV. “It is my first time as a manager at the Lane to be standing opposite Arsene Wenger and hopefully I will get one over on them. “I don’t think there is much blood and thunder these days – I want it to be more of that. “I think that gives us the edge. We are possibly more functional than they are, but if they get into their stride we know they can be very dangerous, so we need to knock them off their stride.” Sherwood’s first match in the dugout for a north London derby came in January, when the Gunners ran out 2-0 victors in their FA Cup third-round tie at the Emirates Stadium. That was the first defeat of his tenure and the pressure has since mounted on the man that succeeded Andre Villas-Boas in December, with talk of a summer departure intensifying as poor results begin to stack up. Sherwood is only concerned with the here and now, however, and is confident his players – whose desire he criticised after the defeat to Chelsea – will do him proud on Sunday. Spurs head into the match in need of a morale-boosting victory after heavy back-to-back defeats this past week at Chelsea and then at home to Benfica in the Europa League. The results likely mean another season without a trophy at White Hart Lane and leaves their top-four ambitions hanging by a thread ahead of Sunday’s pivotal encounter with Arsenal. Tim Sherwood wants this weekend’s north London derby to be a “blood and thunder” encounter as he believes that will give Tottenham the edge. “We’ve got the best game we could have, a north London derby,” he said. “We won’t need any more motivation for that, will we? I am sure they will be up for it. It is probably the best game we could have. “I always thought it was a good time to be playing Arsenal, but it’s ups and downs. We have to soldier on, you can’t always win games and we know that. “We’re in a difficult period at the moment, coming off the back of two defeats, we have to go out there and be counted and I am sure we will and the crowd will accept nothing less.” Emmanuel Adebayor, Kyle Walker and Mousa Dembele are all struggling to be fit for Sunday’s match, while captain Michael Dawson will be absent due to a hamstring injury. Etienne Capoue, Erik Lamela and Vlad Chiriches have also been sidelined, although Gylfi Sigurdsson could be involved after training on Friday. Press Associationlast_img read more

CET discusses poor classroom attendance

first_imgThe best way to encourage students to attend class is to make sure lectures provide added value, student fellows of the Center for Excellence in Teaching said at a panel discussion Wednesday.Attendance · Members of the Center for Excellence in Teaching suggested that teachers go beyond just using textbooks and refer to current events or pop culture in their lectures to encourage student attendance. – Mindy Curtis | Daily Trojan The panel discussion, which was moderated by James Green, CET undergraduate fellow, included Becky Courter, a CET teaching assistant fellow, Joseph Dombrosky, the CET undergraduate fellows chair, and Colby Kennedy, a CET undergraduate fellow.CET held the panel to receive feedback from students about attendance and to provide extra resources for professors who want to improve class attendance.“There are three primary issues for students,” Green said. “Lack of interest in the class, lack of engagement insofar as participating and getting involved and lack of added value, in that students don’t feel their class experience is adding to their required textbook readings and the other parts of the course.”Green said students can be classified into three categories: those who will attend class no matter what, those who never attend class and those who are somewhere in  between. The students who are in between often feel they have better things to do than attend class.“They don’t feel the class is worth going to. Or [they have] other assignments or quizzes,” Green said. “It’s important that [faculty] create an environment that really encourages students to come to class.”Some students said they have a difficult time going to class when they feel the information is verbatim from the textbook.“What is the most productive way that I can spend my time,” said Frankie Bennett, a senior majoring in business administration. “When a professor is really interesting, of course I’ll be there every time. But when I’m being taught something I could learn faster outside of class, then it doesn’t make sense for to me to go.”Courter said CET is trying to provide extra resources and ideas for professors to improve attendance. It falls on the professors, however, to care about attendance, and on the university to provide incentives for those professors to care.“As a teacher if you care about your students, then you care if they show up,” Courter said.TAs often play a large role in engaging students in the course content because they teach discussion sections that expand on professors’ lectures to a smaller number of students.Courter said she tries to stay as comfortable as possible when she is teaching because she believes it makes students feel comfortable, too.Wayne Glass, professor of international relations, said classroom attendance supports a healthy educational system.“I want my classes to be exciting and active,” Glass said. “In some sense, that’s being successful; it’s a measure of my own success as a professional.”In classes where attendance is high, professors encourage class discussion and interaction give frequent quizzes and assign small group work to replace powerpoint lectures, according to Green.CET encourages professors and TAs to focus on adding value to their lectures by getting students interested in the subject through the use of varied media, such as the internet, pop culture and news articles that cater to student interest.“Find a way to encourage students to learn more outside of class,” Green said. “You want to encourage students to come to class — not just to fulfill an attendance grade, but to learn.”last_img read more

Charles Barkley calls Celtics star Kyrie Irving a ‘miserable’ person

first_imgBarkley also brought up Warriors star Kevin Durant, who is scheduled to be a free agent this summer.“If I’m a New York Knicks fan I’m leery, because if you can’t take the heat in Cleveland, Boston and San Francisco, you’re not going to take it in New York,” Barkley said. “Both of these guys (Irving and Durant) have handled it awful. They could have said Day 1 I’m not going to talk about free agency and it would have been over, but they talk about it every single day, and when you guys ask them about it every single day they complain about it.”Entering the season, the Celtics were considered to be the favorites in the East, but have struggled to stay consistent. They are now ranked fifth in their conference with a 40-26 record behind the Bucks, Raptors, Pacers and 76ers. Kyrie Irving on turbulent weeks with Celtics: ‘Obviously I get annoyed pretty quickly’ NBA legend Charles Barkley wasn’t holding back when it came to his evaluation of Celtics guard Kyrie Irving. Irving has been vocal this season about his dissatisfaction with the Celtics and some of his young teammates, but the TNT analyst and Hall of Famer doesn’t understand where the six-time All-Star is coming from. Instead, Barkley believes Irving has the world “in the palm of his hand.” “He wanted to go to Boston to have his own team,” Barkley continued. “But what a lot of these guys don’t understand is when you’re a star, you get all the credit, but also all the blame. That’s not right. That’s just the way it is. Nobody goes to Jaylen Brown or the Morris brothers — they’re going to come to Kyrie Irving after every game. That’s the responsibility of being a star.” “He’s got to be one of the most miserable people I’ve ever seen.”Charles Barkley had some words about Kyrie.— Get Up (@GetUpESPN) March 6, 2019“Kyrie Irving, I don’t know him that well, he seems like a nice kid, but I’ve never seen a person so miserable,” Barkley said on ESPN. “He’s got the world in the palm of his hand, he’s going to make $40 or $50 million a year for the next 10 years, he’s in movies, but he’s one of the most miserable people I’ve ever seen.”Barkley went on to explain that he believes Irving brought his problems upon himself by leaving the Cavaliers for the Celtics in 2017 to “have his own team.”  Related Newslast_img read more

Salisu justifies the fight between Real Madrid, Atlético, City …

first_imgIn this campaign, with the Promises number, it was planned that Salisu trained with the first team and played with the B, but the loss of Javi Sánchez and the Barba sanction made the Ghanaian start in the first League match against the Betis, but He did so well that he became the undisputed headline until today. UndisputedThis season he has played all the matches, practically 90 minutes in every game except at the Camp Nou, where he started on the bench and entered 32 minutes after Nacho’s injury. In those 23 games, being central, he has only seen two yellow cards, in a team like the blanquivioleta, which with the second lowest budget in the category, is the sixth least thrashed, based on the baggy classification of the pucelanos.The Ghanaian, in addition to scoring a goal, against Eibar, stands out for the safety in the exit with the ball since 80% of his passes are good. Not only that, he has made 101 recoveries, he has won 108 duels and made 119 clearance, being one of the most outstanding players in the majority of the matches of the blanquivioletas.Real Madrid is the last to be interested in the player, Although as the SER has told in Valladolid on Wednesday, he dismissed his signing twice for not seeing potential. It was before, of course, his debut at Villamarín. After, Clubs such as Atlético de Madrid, Manchester United, Newcastle or Valencia have joined in their wish for the Ghanaian to become part of their squads. And while Real Valladolid, which does not give up renewing it, although every day sees it more complicated, it only expects to see if any of these clubs are serious to negotiate or, directly, pay the termination clause of 12 million. If there is a definition of what it is to go from 0 to 100 that is the path of Mohammed Salisu (04-17-1999, Ghana) in two and a half years. Its conditions and performance are justifying a super fight between major European clubs, focused on Spain with Real Madrid and AtléticoIn fact, the 1.87m defender has become the player with the highest market value of the team trained by Sergio González: It has gone from being valued by Transfermrkt at 250,000 euros in June to 10 million now.In September 2017 he arrived at the Valladolid youth team and in three months he ascended to the Second B Promises in January, where he showed in 13 games what he could give. In the 2018-19 campaign, he played twice in the second blanquivioleta team, 26 games, demonstrating outstanding power and quality. He also debuted with the first team, but only in Copa del Rey.last_img read more
