FA gives United, City more time to explain bust-up

first_imgVictory sparked mass celebrations from City. United are understood to have taken exception to how their visitors conducted themselves in and around the dressing room area.Milk and water were reportedly thrown at United boss Jose Mourinho after a confrontation with City goalkeeper Ederson and this allegedly escalated into altercation involving up to 20 players and staff in a crowded corridor.City coach Mikel Arteta was reportedly left with a cut below his eye after being hit by a plastic bottle.The FA had asked for a response from the clubs by Wednesday but they have been given until two extra days to provide observations on the alleged fracas.“Manchester United and Manchester City have both been given extra time to provide their observations following reports of an incident after Sunday’s game. They now have until 6:00 pm on Friday 15 December,” the FA said in a statement.Mourinho has dismissed claims his players were in the wrong during the chaotic post-match confrontation that overshadowed the derby.City manager Guardiola has also defended his players, although he has offered an apology to United.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000The match between Manchester United and Manchester City on December 10, 2017, was overshadowed by a chaotic post-match confrontation © AFP/File / Oli SCARFFLONDON, United Kingdom, Dec 13 – The Football Association on Wednesday gave Manchester United and Manchester City extra time to explain the ugly post-match scenes at Old Trafford following victory for Pep Guardiola’s team.Runaway Premier League leaders City opened an 11-point gap over second-placed United with their 2-1 win on Sunday.last_img read more

Arsenal and Man United target scores superb lob (video)

first_imgZlatan Ibrahimovic is usually the hero for Paris Saint-Germain but against Lille his sidekicks Edinson Cavani and Ezequiel Lavezzi were the stars of the show.The Ligue 1 giants were 6-1 winners on Saturday and, while Lavezzi hit a hat-trick, Uruguayan striker Cavani scored a stunning lob just four minutes into the clash after being fed through by Javier Pastore.The 28-year-old has been linked with a move to both Arsenal and Manchester United this year, despite the player insisting he is concentrating on playing for the French club.But a move could still happen, especially when he can score goals like this.

Players who need January transfer to keep Euro 2016 hopes alive

first_img 10 10 6. Loic Remy (Chelsea and France) – linked with Aston Villa, Newcastle – Loic Remy’s Chelsea career just hasn’t quite worked out. The former QPR and Newcastle man has an impressive strike rate in the Premier League but a poor injury record and a lack of faith from Jose Mourinho has seen his minutes restricted. A return to the north east has been mooted – although even a January transfer is unlikely to see him force his way into the France squad despite the blackmail scandal facing fellow striker Karim Benzema. 10 10 3. Andros Townsend (Tottenham and England) – linked with Newcastle, Bournemouth – A player who has often saved his best form for the international stage, Townsend has now fallen so far down the Tottenham pecking order his appearances have been reduced to exclusively Under-21 games. England manager Roy Hodgson is a clear admirer of his talents, so a move to guarantee more game time could well catapult him back into the 68-year-old’s thoughts. 10 10 Euro 2016 follows the culmination to the 2015/16 season and it’s set to be an exciting occasion, particularly for the four Home Nation taking part.A sizeable percentage of Premier League players will be hoping to force their way into their respective international reckonings ahead of the finals in France.But many of those stars may be struggling to make an impression at their current clubs as the second half of the season begins.That’s where the January transfer window comes in, with opportunities out there for those with tournament desires to acquire more first-team action.But who should be looking to do so? talkSPORT has looked at 10 players who could benefit from a move this month.Click the yellow arrow above, right, to see who made the shortlist… 4. Pedro (Chelsea and Spain) – linked with Barcelona – Pedro’s move to Chelsea last summer was meant to boost his chances of securing a role in Spain’s attack in France, but an uninspiring Blues career to date has ironically put that in jeopardy. Guus Hiddink’s arrival and Eden Hazard’s injury problems could reignite those hopes, but a return to Spain has been mooted to ensure he figures in Del Bosque’s thoughts. 10 10 10 8. Marouane Fellaini (Manchester United and Belgium) – linked with AC Milan – The big Belgian has become a scapegoat of Van Gaal’s stuttering, dysfunctional United side and as a result has been ostracized from the starting XI as the club seek a more fluid attacking approach. He’s been brilliant for Belgium in the last 12 months, however, scoring six times in his last four games and the 28-year-old will want to preserve that importance ahead of a finals they are heavily tipped to flourish at. 7. Mathieu Debuchy (Arsenal and France) – linked with Aston Villa – A man whose value has depreciated dramatically in the last 12 months, Debuchy can’t get a look in at the Emirates due to the meteoric rise of Hector Bellerin. Aston Villa manager Remi Garde has expressed an interest in Debuchy, but the right back might desire a slightly more ambitious move considering he’s still very much competing with Bacary Sagna for a starting berth in the France team. 2. Kevin Mirallas (Everton and Belgium) – linked with Monaco – Mirallas is another mercurial talent who is a frequent game-changer but has struggled at Everton since he stole a penalty from Leighton Baines against West Brom in January 2015 and duly missed it. The Belgium squad is brimming with elite stars featuring regularly for Europe’s heavyweight clubs, so a move might be necessary to safeguard his tournament inclusion. 5. Ashley Young (Manchester United and England) – linked with Tottenham – Young has quietly and effectively gone about his business at Manchester United in the last year but it still hasn’t been enough to earn an England recall. After several years in the international abyss and despite hastening Angel di Maria’s Old Trafford exit with his performances last season, Young may require more time in the spotlight than he is being offered in Manchester. 1. Ander Herrera (Manchester United and Spain) – linked with Juventus – A sizeable percentage of Premier League players will be hoping to be part of their respective nation’s Euro 2016 squads. First team football is important and some could seek January transfers to boost their chances of booking a seat on the plane and talkSPORT looks at 10 players. Rumours of Herrera’s discontent in Manchester continue to rumble on, with many claiming United’s entire Latin-speaking contingent have fallen out altogether with manager Louis van Gaal. The 26-year-old is one of the most popular figures in the Red Devils squad but might seek an escape in January to ensure he remains a part of Spain boss Vicente Del Bosque’s plans. 9. Jonjo Shelvey (Swansea and England) – linked with Crystal Palace, Newcastle – From a key cog in an impressive Swansea outfit at the start of the season to a peripheral figure in a struggling Swans side in the new year, it’s difficult to put a finger on Shelvey’s decline. His talent is undeniable though there are doubts about his temperament, but he really impressed in the England setup in the last few Euro 2016 qualifiers. A change of scenery could reignite his chances as the likes of Dele Alli and Eric Dier are both probably ahead of him right now. 10 10. Charlie Austin (QPR and England) – linked with Crystal Palace, Chelsea, Newcastle – Austin’s talents are wasted in the Championship. He earned his first England call up at the back end of last season after scoring 18 goals for an abject QPR side and nine months later he needs a more high profile club to showcase his assets. Crystal Palace manager Alan Pardew said he’s not interested in the striker, but he would not be short of other top-flight suitors. Jamie Vardy’s exploits this season show anything is possible for Austin in a short space of time.last_img read more

4 Tips for MongoDB Beginners

first_imgSenko Raši? has created a list of tips for MongoDB beginners called MongoDB gotchas for the unaware user. All of these “gotchas” are in the MongoDB documentation, but are the sorts of things that you might not remember until it’s too late. Taking Raši?’s advice early could save you some major headaches later on.Raši?’s tips:Use the 64-bit version The 32-bit version is limited to about 2.5GB of data, and you can’t switch to the 64-bit version after install without starting all over.Have a slave DB on another machine If your MongoDB instance crashes, you’ll want to recover it from a slave on another server because the data from the master could be hopelessly corrupted.Secure it MongoDB doesn’t use any authentication by default. If you don’t want the entire world to be able to tamper with your database, you need to setup some security rules.Always use getLastError “Unless you need lightning speed, it pays to wait a little to be sure the database is ok with your changes, and that there were no errors modifying the data,” Raši? wrote.Read his post for more details.

BJP, Sena have chance to raise their RS tally from Mrashtra

first_imgMumbai, May 12 (PTI) Ruling allies BJP and Shiv Sena in Maharashtra have a chance to wrest one seat each currently held by Opposition Congress and NCP in the next months biennial elections to six Rajya Sabha seats in the state given their present strength in the Assembly.Biennial elections to 57 seats in the Upper House of Parliament will be held on June 11, the Election Commission said today. The elections were necessitated as 55 members from 15 states are retiring between June and August. One seat each from Rajasthan and Karnataka vacated by Anand Sharma (Congress) and Vijay Mallya (Independent) will also go for polls.Six of these seats are in Maharashtra with two each held by Congress and NCP, and one each by BJP and Sena. The retiring Rajya Sabha MPs from the state are Ishwarlal Jain and Praful Patel (NCP), Vijay Darda and Avinash Pande (Congress), Union Minister Piyush Goyal (BJP) and Sanjay Raut (Sena).The Rajya Sabha elections are now held Open Ballot wherein the Members of the Legislative Assembly (excluding the Nominated MLA) have to display the preference of voting to the party whip.The number of votes required to win the elections is pegged at 42.Given their current strength in the Assembly, it is highly unlikely either the Congress or the NCP will field more than one nominee. The Congress has 42 MLAs and the NCP 41.Both the Congress and the NCP are not in a position to muster additional 84 votes to ensure victory for their second candidates. Hence, they will have to forgo the idea of fielding a second candidate.advertisementAs against this, the BJP has 122 MLAs and the Sena 63, taking their combined strength to 185.However, in case an election is forced, both the BJP and Sena will fall short of 46 votes each to get their second candidate elected. But if they reach an understanding, they can get their second candidate elected by mustering the required votes.Other parties in the 289-member Assembly stand as follows: PWP 3, BVA 3, AIMIM 2, MNS 1, Samajwadi Party 1, BBM 1, CPI-M 1, RSP 1, Independents 7 and 1 vacant (nominated).
