Sir Alex Ferguson admits he was desperate “to go out a winner” after being beaten to the Barclays Premier League title by rivals Manchester City last year. He added: “We had a terrific points lead. The problem is when you have a lead and you start to lose a point. When we lost to City in the Monday night game you start to think ‘Christ, you can’t throw this away’.” That need to end on a high note extends to the final game of the Ferguson era at West Bromwich Albion on Sunday too. The silverware may have been sewn up already, but Ferguson has no interest in signing off with defeat. “We need to win the game on Sunday,” he added. “We won the last home game (against Swansea) and I don’t want to lose my last game, that’s for sure.” Ferguson was instrumental in the decision to appoint Everton manager David Moyes as his successor and he explained why he felt his fellow Scot was the man for the job. United may have known plenty of success in recent seasons, but Ferguson feels the ability to deal with adversity could be crucial for Moyes. “What I know of David is he’s hard working, there’s an integrity about him, he’s got a work ethic about him and he’s a serious football man,” Ferguson said. “These are qualities he’s going to need. If you look at what he’s done at Everton for instance. “Eleven years without real financial backing, but he persevered and created some decent teams in the last few years.” The Manchester United manager, who retires after 26 years of unprecedented success at Old Trafford, explained how important it was to him to leave his post with the club back on top of the pile. Speaking on stage at the club’s end of season awards ceremony, Ferguson told MUTV: “That was an issue when (wife) Cathy and I chatted about this at Christmas. At that point we had a five-point lead and I thought we had a great chance. I said ‘I really need to go out a winner. We need to win something’. After the disappointment of last season we couldn’t take a second one. I was hopeful we’d win it and we did.” Press Association
“Whether you are a player or a coach you need confidence and you could understand it if he was a little bit daunted.” Given his background, it is hardly a surprise Harrison’s skills are in demand. In his work for McDonalds, the 75-year-old tries to improve coaching at the grassroots of the game, with children a particular priority given the manner in which he revolutionised the youth system at Old Trafford. “The manager is obviously the most important person at any football club but without good coaches they would be absolutely nothing,” said Harrison. “And I might be biased but one of the most important coaches at any club is the youth coach. “They are just as important as the players because they are responsible for bringing the next generation through.” Evidently, that was Harrison’s forte, having decided something had to be done to improve the standard of coaching from his own playing days. “I started at Halifax Town and then went across the lower leagues,” he said. “In all my career; 550 games over 17 years, not one coach or manager took me to one side and said they would work with me to improve certain aspects of my game. “I was scared to say anything but I didn’t think it was right. “I resolved that if I ever got a job coaching, I would make sure the players got coached properly. “I hope that attitude has rubbed off on the United lads and is why they want to go from being top-class players to hopefully being top-class coaches.” :: Eric Harrison was speaking at the 2013 FA and McDonald’s Community Awards. The annual awards recognise and celebrate the thousands of volunteers who dedicate their time to grassroots football each year – everyone from coaches and officials to groundsmen. Visit mcdonalds.co.uk/awards for more information. Former Manchester United youth-team manager Eric Harrison has no doubt Ryan Giggs will be a success in his new coaching role at Old Trafford. Giggs has been appointed to David Moyes’ backroom team along with another member of the famed ‘Class of 92’ which Harrison was responsible for bringing through the ranks, Phil Neville. Although Giggs will be eased in gradually, having entered his 24th top-flight campaign as a United player, it is clear that is the direction he is heading, with some already speculating he will end up as Red Devils boss at some stage in the future. Speaking at the annual McDonald’s Community Awards, Harrison said: “Without doubt Ryan will be a success. “He is a football nut. I am glad he is doing what he is doing. “It would have been a tragedy if he had said ‘right, I am going to play golf every day’. He gets bored after five minutes if it is not football.” Nevertheless, as coaches Giggs and Neville have to prove themselves in a manner they did such a long time ago as players. And the major difference is, they are not entirely in charge of their own destiny given results are determined by the performances of others. Given those results during pre-season have not entirely gone to plan, Harrison has resolved to have a chat with the pair, plus reserve team coach Nicky Butt, later this week, to ensure they have the confidence required heading into a new campaign so full of uncertainty following the exit of Sir Alex Ferguson. “It’s not often but occasionally I will sit down and have a word with them,” said Harrison. “I am going to do with Phil for instance because he might be a little bit nervous.

Paul Linaman was working as a barista at Peet’s Coffee and Tea when the company began making changes that included firing some of its best employees at a time when unemployment rates were soaring.“It was a company that had been going through all these transitions,” Linaman said. “The transition was very rough. I was really upset at the time, but [being fired] turned out to be a really good thing.”Lettuce talk · Salad chef Paul Linaman (right) chats with Soon Gon Kim (left), a sophomore majoring in fine arts, outside of Seeds Marketplace. – Ani Kolangian | Daily TrojanLinaman, now a salad chef at Seeds Marketplace, took the job loss as an opportunity to improve his culinary skills. At the time, his mother was the associate director of St. Joseph’s Center, a service center for poor and homeless families, which acquired an unused restaurant as a donation. The donated location served two functions: providing free restaurant-style meals for the homeless and providing what Linaman calls “crash-course culinary training” for chefs of varying skill levels.“It was a wide variety of people,” Linaman said. “It was people who were just out of college, like one young woman who, her whole life, had worked with her mom’s catering business, but now wanted to get a job at a restaurant. It was people who had been laid off, usually people in the industry who wanted a little extra training in order to get their careers going again.”After the course, Linaman worked at the Hard Rock Cafe in Hollywood but said he lost his position when the franchise laid off about two-thirds of its chefs. He once again refused to let the loss of a job he loved discourage him, so after a few weeks off, he applied for a job with USC Hospitality in 2010.During a kitchen test, Linaman made pasta primavera but had to turn to improvisation when he ran out of time to cook the noodles after finishing the meat and vegetables.“I called it ‘Paleolithic primavera’ because I noticed that sometimes on Top Chef, when they mean to make something but run out of time, they sometimes make up stories and the judges usually love it,” Linaman said. “My story was that it’s part of the trend of being on the Paleolithic diet, where you eat as if you’re a hunter-gatherer.”Linaman was already familiar with this audition-like application process and had previously developed his improvisation skills after growing up in Los Feliz, where he became involved in performing arts at a young age.“As soon as there was any theater available to be involved in, I was,” Linaman said. “As soon as I was in junior high and they had drama class, I started taking that. I was really involved in play production in high school.”After attending Santa Monica College, he transferred to New York University to study theater, where he participated in many student productions. His favorite was a play about the last days of the Trojan prophet Cassandra.“It was interesting because it was an original play, and [the professor] was rewriting it while we were working on it,” Linaman said. “The author was right there so we could ask her questions. I could tell that she was rewriting based on what she saw.”After college, Linaman moved back to Los Feliz. He said that, despite his love for theater, he did not want to enter into the competitive world of Broadway. He has not been involved in any formal productions since his return to California but is interested in returning when the opportunity arises. He has found, however, that some theater school lessons apply to other aspects of his life.“When I’m making salads, the physical structure of it is kind of a choreographic narrative,” Linaman said. “Being able to focus on that is very theatrical. It’s the capacity to put yourself in structures, and live within the structures in a particular way.”Linaman’s theatrical experiences also led to an interest in psychoanalysis, something he is now interested in pursuing in graduate school.“There’s a few professors who I want to meet but haven’t quite had the courage to just walk into their offices,” Linaman said. “I didn’t even realize they taught here when I first started reading [their books].”He has been considering USC for a master’s degree in comparative literature, a program that would not only allow him to further his education but perhaps give him the chance to meet some of his favorite writers.

Initially, the UKGC ordered the bookmakers to pay a fine which amounted to 2.5% of gross gambling yield, the amount retained by a bookmaker after payment of winnings but before deduction of any expenses.Due to the cancellation of the UK racing calendar from 17 March, the UKGC has confirmed that it will be issuing the bookmakers with ‘advice to conduct’ letters or warnings.Reported on the Racing Post, a Gambling Commission spokesperson said: “Protecting children and young people from gambling harm is a priority for the commission.“Due to the impact of the exceptional commercial challenges and current uncertainty for on-course bookmakers, we have taken the decision to review the initial sanctions placed on these seven operators.“We will continue to monitor their standards very closely. If future failings are identified we will not hesitate to take action.”Chris Hudson, the president of the British Racecourse Bookmakers Association, explained that he was pleased by the news and that they will contact the UKGC to establish how on-course bookies can ‘work more closely together’ with the regulator.He said: “We will again attempt to reach out to the Gambling Commission officers responsible to better understand how we can work more closely together, as protecting the young and vulnerable is a key objective of the Gambling Act and is supported by all racecourse bookmakers.” Spotlight delivers Racing Post translated services for Pari-Engineering Russia August 26, 2020
There was a game-tying 3-pointer, a controversial call and the key to the team sitting on the bench, injured. The last time these two teams played one another, it was in the postseason. But while this game had all the drama of a playoff game, the Clippers didn’t play like it was one. It was a fight to the finish, but ultimately, in the Clippers’ quest for vengeance against the Houston Rockets, they finished just short in a 109-105 loss Saturday night at Staples Center. “I don’t think we played very well,” said Clippers coach Doc Rivers. “I didn’t think we had a great sense of urgency. So that’s why we lost the game.”Facing Houston (4-3) for the first time since the devastating Game 7 loss in the 2015 Western Conference semifinals and down by three with only 49.9 seconds left, James Harden, who up until the final 50 seconds had been the hero for the Rockets with a season-high 46 points, was charged with an offensive foul after a collision with DeAndre Jordan. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error “That’s not why we lost the game,” Rivers said. The Clippers (4-2) lost the game because they couldn’t contain Harden and they failed to adjust properly without point guard Chris Paul. Harden torched L.A., his second straight game with more than 40 points, adding four rebounds and two assists to his stat line. There was no containing the Rockets’ leading scorer, who went 14 of 26 from the field, including 5 of 10 on 3-pointers. Doc Rivers shouldered the blame, saying he didn’t have a good enough game plan in place against Harden. “He had 46 points tonight so, clearly, we didn’t do our job,” Rivers said. “That one is more on me, the way I look at it. We wanted to single-cover him for most of the game and send him different places. He just caught fire early and I knew I should have adjusted.” But even with Harden on the bench, L.A. had problems defending Howard, who pulled down seven offensive boards and 13 rebounds total, and Marcus Thornton, who scored 16 points. Before the game, the Clippers announced that Paul would sit out with a sore right groin. Austin Rivers, who had a breakout game against Rockets in Game 3 of the Western Conference semifinals, was confident that he could that he could step in for Paul. While the play of Austin Rivers and Pablo Prigioni drew high praise from teammates, the offensive rhythm was disrupted, Without Paul, the Clippers couldn’t get back into it. “With Chris being out, the rotations were really different,” said guard J.J. Redick. “Chris has just such a command of the game. We definitely missed him.”Doc Rivers doesn’t want to use Paul’s absence as an excuse. He said the Clippers simply played a lackluster game. “When you don’t play with Chris, who moves the ball and plays in a completely different way, it’s going to be different,” Doc Rivers said. “Chris is great at getting us back into rhythm. I don’t think we were very organized, which is on me. I don’t think we executed very well and thought a lot of that was not the point guard. It was just the way we played.”Griffin kept the Clippers alive until the final buzzer, leading L.A. with 35 points, 11 rebounds and five assists. Redick had 19 and Jordan doubled up with 11 points and 14 rebounds. Josh Smith also scored 10 points against his former team. Nine seconds later, with the ball back in the hands of the Clippers, Blake Griffin kicked it outside to Pierce for a corner 3-pointer to tie the game at 105-105. But after Harden hit two free throws and Griffin missed a layup and a putback, the ball was knocked out of bounds by Dwight Howard and the Clippers cried for a goaltending call. In fact, they’re still crying goaltending. But the call was reviewed and the ball went back to the Rockets.“I actually watched it already. I couldn’t wait until I got home,” Griffin said. “I watched it several times. That’s textbook goaltending. But they can’t go back and look at it if there wasn’t a call on that actual goaltend, or non-goaltend, or whatever you want to call it.”However, coach Doc Rivers maintained that the Clippers had chances before the final minute, leading by as much as 10 points in the second quarter.
