Rooney now Man United’s record scorer with 250 goals

first_img INCREDIBLE STRIKERS MANCHESTER, England (AP): It was a moment of drama and pride for Wayne Rooney but one tinged with disappointment for Bobby Charlton. Rooney overhauled Charlton yesterday to become Manchester United’s record scorer, coming off the bench to net his landmark 250th goal in stoppage time at Stoke to clinch a 1-1 draw in the Premier League. “(Charlton) came and congratulated me in the dressing room so I know he’s pleased in some way,” said Rooney, who has won the Champions League and five Premier League titles with United. “I’m a team player, but records are important. When you finish your career you can look back on it and it’s something to tell your kids.” Last January, Rooney moved past Denis Law to become United’s second-highest scorer on 239 and, now playing as a deep-lying attacker or in midfield, began the slow crawl to surpass the tally of club great Charlton – who was among fans watching the game against Stoke – that had stood since 1973. The 31-year-old Rooney, no longer assured of a starting spot in his 13th season at United, moved level with Charlton on January 7 and needed two more weeks to take the record outright. Rooney has scored 250 goals in 546 games. Charlton scored 249 in 758 matches. “I have become used to the honour of being the club’s all-time top goalscorer,” Charlton said. “We have had some incredible strikers here at Old Trafford and they have scored a lot of goals, but it has been fairly obvious for a while now that Wayne Rooney was going to be the one likeliest to break my record. “And now that day has come, I would be lying to say that I’m not disappointed to have lost the record. However, I can honestly say that I’m delighted for Wayne. He deserves his place in the history books.” Having already broken Charlton’s 49-goal England scoring record in 2015, Rooney has now completed possibly the final major feat of his illustrious – if turbulent – career. Setting the United goal record confirms Rooney as a modern-day great in English football, if not maybe the world game. Some will say he hasn’t quite reached the heights expected of him after bursting on to the international scene with such brio at the 2004 European Championship, or that he hasn’t kicked on from when he was arguably at the top of his game with United in the 2009-10 season. In that season, Rooney was at a level comparable to Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi. But his career has tailed off somewhat – save for certain standout periods – while Messi and Ronaldo have gone from strength to strength, competing on an annual basis for FIFA’s Player of the Year award. Yesterday’s results: Liverpool 2 Swansea 3; Bournemouth 2 Watford 2; Crystal Palace 0 Everton 1; Middlesbrough 1 West Ham 3; Stoke City 1 Manchester United 1; West Brom 2 Sunderland 0; Manchester City 2 Tottenham 2.last_img read more

Journalist Tells Taylor’s Story of Failure

first_imgA Liberian journalist, Mr. Max Willie, has launched a book documenting the stories of former President Charles Taylor’s armed insurrection, his presidency and departure from Liberia to Nigeria.The book titled, “Where Charles Taylor Went Wrong,” is a summary of the administration of Mr. Taylor’s governance style both home and internationally.Launching the book on behalf of Mr. Willie was the executive director of Center for Media Studies and Peace Building (CEMESP), Malcolm Joseph. Mr. Joseph disclosed that the pieces of information contained in the book, are an insider’s account of Mr. Taylor’s overgenerous approach to governance and his twisted perception on international relations.Highlighting the books capacity to spark debate, Mr. Joseph said, “This book allows readers from the current generation to promptly delve into the details of actions initiated by well-known members of the international community determined to drag Taylor to court in The Hague. These forces placed emphasis on what they called Taylor’s ‘war crimes committed in Sierra Leone,’ while turning a blind-eye to the more serious offenses he orchestrated in Liberia.”According to him, this piece of literature is a first-hand account of Taylor’s missteps in Liberia and Sierra Leone that speaks on the issues and events culminating in the downfall of a man who transfigured Liberia.“The ex-president’s foreign policy toward not only the United States and other western countries, but to neighbouring African countries was the basis for his international isolation, the lack of donor support to his government and his eventual demise,” the author asserted.Also commenting on the launched book, journalist Aaron Kollie encouraged Liberia’s educational system to take interest in said resource material in order to add another voice to the ever-changing story of Liberia.He also called on the committee responsible to rewrite Liberia’s history to consider this piece as an important tool to help generate more necessary information to foster their work.Max Willie is a former Voice of America (VOA) correspondent, former deputy director general of Liberia Broadcasting System (LBS) and was in the employ of the Search for Common Ground-Talking Drum Studio Liberia public information manager.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

first_imgSinn Féin whip on Donegal County Council, Cllr Mick Quinn, has expressed his disappointment at the decision reached by his fellow councillors tonight.Cllr Quinn said that it was a missed opportunity to finally make a stand for the people of the county who are suffering from continued austerity.Cllr Quinn said: “I am extremely disappointment that the much anticipated stand against cutbacks in Donegal has been wasted. “I am mystified as to what has changed since last Tuesday when the budget was rejected by Sinn Féin, Fianna Fáil, and Cllr Campbell.“The u-turn by some councillors gave the government parties the opportunity they needed to enforce a deeply unfair budget and save face for Minister Phil Hogan.“I am further disappointed at the nature of the vote as the Fine Gael/Labour/Independent grouping blocked any opportunity to debate their proposals or question their vague plan to raise hundreds of thousands of euro through ‘increased targets’.“Many people will interpret this as a reckless and desperate attempt to save their own skin at any cost. “As local representatives we were mandated, when elected, to represent the people of Donegal; young, old, sick and suffering. We were not elected to pass a budget for the sake of passing it.“This budget is wrong for the people of Donegal as we will not be able to provide basic services; particularly for the most vulnerable in our society.” CLLR QUINN: ‘CAMPBELL’S U-TURN HELPS PHIL HOGAN SAVE FACE’ was last modified: January 14th, 2014 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:CLLR QUINN: ‘CAMPBELL’S U-TURN HELPS PHIL HOGAN SAVE FACE’last_img read more
