Solskjaer searches for answers to save Man Utd season

first_imgRashford’s recent form has helped paper over United’s lack of depth up front after they opted not to replace Romelu Lukaku, who left for Inter Milan in August.United’s midfield looks desperately short of creativity in the absence of the injured Paul Pogba and with Jesse Lingard struggling to find his best form. Scott McTominay is also currently sidelined with a knee injury, depriving the side of steel.And despite boosting their defence with the signings of Harry Maguire and Aaron Wan-Bissaka in the summer transfer window at considerable cost, United do not look like a cohesive unit at the back.Maguire’s arrival has not had the same galvanising impact that Virgil van Dijk’s signing had at Liverpool, with United recording just three clean sheets in the Premier League this season. Only Norwich and Tottenham have had fewer.Solskjaer did not sound over-confident that the January transfer window would yield obvious solutions.“We are a young team and with the injuries we’ve had and illness it shows more and that’s something we are looking at,” he said.“If there is something there for us I’ve got the backing to do something but if it is not the right thing we won’t do anything.”Aston Villa midfielder Jack Grealish and Leicester midfielder James Maddison, as well as Dortmund’s Jadon Sancho, have all seen their names linked with a move to Old Trafford.The problem is that January is a notoriously difficult time to persuade clubs to part with their best players. Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers has said nobody he wants to keep will be leaving the King Power Stadium this month.Alongside the constant speculation over Pogba’s future, Solskjaer may have another headache, with reports that veteran defender Ashley Young has opened talks over a move to Inter Milan.“We can’t weaken ourselves. We’ve got to strengthen ourselves if any movement is going to happen,” Solskjaer said.Share on: WhatsApp SolskjaerLondon, United Kingdom | AFP | Manchester United’s demoralising defeat against Manchester City in their League Cup semi-final laid bare their desperate need for reinforcements if they are to salvage anything from their stuttering season.United conceded three first-half goals in a match at Old Trafford for the first time since May 1997 on Tuesday in their chastening 3-1 first-leg loss against Pep Guardiola’s men.Bernardo Silva’s wonder strike, Riyad Mahrez’s cool finish and an own goal from Andreas Pereira put City well on course for a third straight final before Marcus Rashford gave the hosts faint hope for the second leg on January 29.The defeat was another stark reminder that United are light years behind the standards set by Premier League pacesetters Liverpool and defending champions City.Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said there would be no easy solutions as United attempt to claw their way back to the top of English football.“I’ve said before it is not going to be a quick fix and the two teams you are talking about are probably two of the best teams in the world,” he said.“That’s the task we have ahead of us, it’s something that we’ve started. You can see we are still a way off but we’ve started something that needed doing.”The problem is that the shoots of recovery are hard to decipher, with United short of technical quality and fight against City.United have had some impressive performances this season — including a 2-1 victory at City in the league last month, wins against Chelsea and Spurs and a draw at home against Liverpool.But they have stumbled badly against sides they would expect to beat, losing to Watford, Bournemouth, Newcastle and West Ham, and face a tough battle to qualify for next season’s Champions League.– United flaws –There are problems for Solskjaer to solve all over the pitch.last_img read more

Shinkwin eyes England spot with impressive Hog victory

first_img23 Apr 2012 Shinkwin eyes England spot with impressive Hog victory Hampshire Hog 136 C Shinkwin (Moor Park) 68 68 139 M Young (Brokenhurst Manor) 68 71, J Titlow (Knole Park) 68 71 140 M Wallace (Moor Park) 66 74, G Samuels (Leighton Buzzard) 68 72, J Bartlett (Worthing) 65 75 Callum Shinkwin (Moor Park, Hertfordshire) boosted his chance of a call-up for next month’s international with France with an impressive victory in the Hampshire Hog at a showery and chilly North Hants yesterday. Two rounds of two-under-par 68 earned the 18 year old a three-stroke winning margin over Martin Young (Brokenhurst Manor, Hampshire, IoW & CI) and Jerome Titlow (Knole Park, Kent). Watched by England selectors, Shinkwin, who opted to miss the previous day’s Selborne Salver – won by England boys’ squad member Matt Fitzpatrick (Hallamshire, Yorkshire) – said: “This win sets up a lot of opportunities for me. My aim is next year’s Walker Cup so hopefully a full England place is a possibility.” On the eve of jetting out to Spain for a week’s coaching with the rest of the England ‘A’ squad, Shinkwin found himself three strokes off the halfway lead, held by Jack Bartlett (Worthing, Sussex), after his opening 68. But as the weather deteriorated in the afternoon with showers moving in so the scores increased, apart from Shinkwin’s. His second 68, the only sub-par return of the round, left him out of touch for the rest of the field as he signed for four birdies and two bogeys. “I didn’t find the conditions more difficult after lunch,” he added. “The only problem was continually putting on and removing waterproofs. “But I’ve been playing solid all year. This is a superb course but I didn’t hole many putts today but I hit a lot of greens. “It’s great to win this title and to have my name up there with so many famous winners such as Michael Bonallack, Peter McEvoy, Gary Wolstenholme and Justin Rose.” While Shinkwin kept his form in the afternoon, the early leaders lost ground. Bartlett followed up his 65 with 75, while Matt Wallace (Moor Park, Hertfordshire) and Gavin Samuels (Leighton Buzzard, Bedfordshire) added 74s to their opening 66s, all three finishing equal fourth. But Bartlett, winner of the Berkhamsted Trophy three weeks earlier, had to consolation of lifting the Hampshire Salver for the best aggregate over the Selborne Salver and the Hog. He finished tied on 278 with Fitzpatrick but won on countback for his 140 at the Hog against Fitzpatrick’s 145. However, the Yorkshire teenager began the weekend by winning the Selborne Salver at Blackmoor with a 36-hole tally of 133 after a superb opening 63. He finished a shot ahead of ‘A’ squad member Jonathan Bell (Royal Blackheath, Kent) and Paul Howard (Southport & Ainsdale, Lancashire). Leading final scores Selborne Salver 133 M Fitzpatrick (Hallamshire) 63 70 134 J Bell (Royal Blackheath) 67 67, P Howard (Southport & Ainsdale) 66 68 136 P Tarver Jones (Worthing) 64 72 Hampshire Salver 278 J Bartlett (Worthing) 138, 140; M Fitzpatrick (Hallamshire) 133 145 (Bartlett won on countback)last_img read more

Cooperation Between Jamaica and Belgium to be Strengthened

Kamina Johnson Smith, said mutual assistance can also be used to identify and recover the proceeds of crime, and is particularly important in preventing criminals from evading prosecution because evidence or proceeds are in different countries.Senator Johnson Smith, who is also Minister of Foreign Affairs and Foreign Trade, said the Order refers to two conventions to which both Jamaica and Belgium are parties – the United Nations Convention against Corruption (UNCAC) 2005 and the United Nations Convention against Transnational Organised Crime 2000.“The UNCAC requires parties to the treaty to implement measures that focus on areas such as prevention, law enforcement, international cooperation, asset recovery, technical assistance and information exchange. The Order before us today would implement chapter four of the UNCAC international cooperation,” she added.She said as a party to the Palerma Convention and the Palerma Protocols, Jamaica has committed to taking a series of measures in relation to transnational organised crime, including the adoption and revision of frameworks relating to extradition, mutual legal assistance and law-enforcement cooperation.“By affirming the Order by resolution, we are not only safeguarding our relationship with Belgium, but we are also ensuring that our international obligations are satisfied,” she said.Leader of Opposition Business in the Senate, Donna Scott-Mottley, said the Opposition fully supports the Resolution.“We expect that our country will accede to these international requests, especially because the focus is on transnational crime and unearthing any kind of corruption which cuts across all borders,” she said.
