first_imgMan Utd chief Woodward: Solskjaer job secureby Paul Vegas7 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveEd Woodward says Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will remain Manchester United manager no matter what happens against Liverpool on Sunday.Supporters are growing restless after United’s spluttering start which sees them in 12th with nine points from eight games.But Woodward insists the club have a long-term plan that includes Solskjaer at the helm.”Ole has also instilled the discipline back into an environment where we may have lacked it in recent years,” said Woodward in an address to staff at Old Trafford. “He is building a squad that respects the club’s history, in which players work hard and respect their team-mates.”No one is bigger than the club. The changes we saw over the summer have resulted in a very young squad. But it’s also a squad, with the players and the culture, that provides a base camp for us to build and grow from as we start our new journey.”He added: “Ole’s vision maps exactly to the core three football objectives we have: we must win trophies, we must play attacking football, and we must give youth its chance,” said Woodward.”The middle section of last season, after Ole’s arrival, feels most relevant to what we want to achieve and where we want to be, we saw a team playing fast, fluid football, with a clear representation of the style and philosophy the manager wants.” TagsTransfersAbout the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

first_imgTagsTransfersAbout the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say Moyes tells Man Utd ace Pogba to stay putby Paul Vegas3 days agoSend to a friendShare the lovePaul Pogba should stay with Manchester United, says former United boss David Moyes.The France international revealed in the summer he’s ready for a new challenge elsewhere.Moyes told talkSPORT: “Pogba is still Manchester United’s best midfield player and I think Pogba can play for any team in the world. He’d get a game for any team.“I’m not sure he’s a player who is consistent and makes a difference all the time.“I think for the profile he’s got, you hope he makes the difference. He doesn’t always do that for me.“But I think he should stay at Manchester United.“I don’t think he wins games like Messi does for Barcelona or Ronaldo’s done for Juventus.“He’s a really talented player and he’s got a lot to give.“His best for me was then he was at Juventus. He joined in more and got closer to the opposition box. Pogba is at his best getting near the box and trying to score a few goals.“If you were picking United’s team, I still think that Pogba would be in their midfield.” last_img read more

AAC Football’s Official Twitter Account Trolled Penn State

first_imgAmerican Athletic Conference twitter page trolls Penn State.American TweetPenn State made some news yesterday when it was revealed that the team literally buried the game tape of its 27-10 season-opening loss to Temple with a shovel. In the embarrassing defeat, the Nittany Lions surrendered 10 sacks. While Penn State was ready to let that game go, the American Athletic Conference, of which Temple is a member, wants to relish the memory of it . That’s why the AAC’s official football Twitter account dropped a solid troll job on Penn State this morning. Penn State may have buried the game tape, but you can watch all 10 @Temple_FB sacks from Sat on our YouTube page https://t.co/xkp5lidkzS— American Football (@American_FB) September 9, 2015That’s tremendous. This was Temple’s first win over PSU in over 70 years, and they set a conference sack record in the process. The AAC doesn’t have many opportunities to brag about its football accomplishments, so it is understandably proud of the Owls’ performance.last_img read more

Man City ‘held talks with Terry’ over £200k-a-week deal

first_imgManchester City did hold talks with John Terry over a move to the Etihad Stadium in the summer of 2009, the club’s former chief executive Garry Cook has confirmed.Chelsea gave City permission to speak to their skipper, but he eventually turned down a five-year contract worth £200,000 a week.The deal was offered to Terry nearly 12 months after billionaire owner Sheikh Mansour took control of the club and during Mark Hughes’ reign, although the Welshman was sacked in December that year.

Cook told Sky Sports: “We went through the process [of signing Terry].”[Chelsea chief executive] Peter Kenyon was there at the time and we had conversations with him, saying we’d like to do it and we’d like to have a conversation.”I think he was probably more confident that he [Terry] wasn’t going anywhere.”We had conversations with John and he decided to stay where he was, and quite rightly so.”But there was never a document ready to sign.”Terry later revealed that he used the offer from City as a bargaining tool when negotiating a new deal with Chelsea.”There were players out there who were using us as a stalking horse and that’s the game,” Cook added. “If you want to get a better contract in your renewal with the club you’re with, then you’ve got to try and raise a market, and that’s what agents would do.”The reality is, would we have liked a lot of them to come? Yes. But the truth is, some of them were a little bit smoke and mirrors.”The defender went on to stay at Stamford Bridge until 2017, making a total of 703 appearances for the club, a Chelsea record.He went on to sign for Aston Villa and spent the 2017-18 career in the West Midlands, captaining the side to the Championship play-off final at Wembley where they narrowly lost to Fulham.last_img read more

Van Dijk: I don’t care about being booed

first_imgVirgil van Dijk says he does not really care when opposing fans boo him in the wake of jeers from England supporters in the Nations League.The Dutch centre-back was booed every time he touched the ball in the Netherlands’ Nations League semi-final victory over England.That victory pushed the Dutch into the finale, where they fell 1-0 to Portugal on Sunday thanks to a Goncalo Guedes goal. Article continues below Editors’ Picks ‘There is no creativity’ – Can Solskjaer get Man Utd scoring freely again? ‘Everyone legged it on to the pitch!’ – How Foden went from Man City superfan to future superstar Emery out of jail – for now – as brilliant Pepe papers over Arsenal’s cracks What is Manchester United’s ownership situation and how would Kevin Glazer’s sale of shares affect the club? Van Dijk was again signalled out in Porto as a number of England fans were again in attendance in the hope that they would see their side in action.But he insists it not something that bothers him on the pitch.”I don’t really care, if somebody boos me or boos the team, we’re trying to win the game,” he said following Sunday’s defeat.”We know we have a lot of support behind us anyway and at the end of the day it’s us players who have to do the job, and it doesn’t affect me at all.”Sunday’s defeat was a diffiuclt one for the Dutch, who bounced back from missing the 2018 World Cup by making the finale of the new UEFA tournament.Van Dijk and team-mate Georginio Wijnaldum were hoping to cap off a spectacular season that saw Liverpool lift the Champions League title with yet another trophy on Sunday, but it was not to be as the Netherlands fell short in a tournament final once again.”Well, yeah, obviously we wanted to win, that’s the main thing,” he said.”We have to keep our heads up high, recover from all of this, learn from this whole experience, because we have a young group, and make sure we qualify for the Euros. He added: “It’s a total different team we faced. I think they wait for our mistakes, they sit back a little bit and let us have the ball, and I think the pace of the game was not high, especially the first half, but I don’t think they had too big chances, and were a bit luckier in the end than we were.”Looking ahead, towards Euro 2020 qualification, the defender says he feels the Dutch side is in a better place than it once was, and he believes the Nations League run will be a springboard to bigger and better for this group “I think before this tournament if someone said we would be in the final, we would beat France, Germany, England, then somebody would say you’re crazy, so we have to be proud of ourselves,” he said.”We made big progress as a team, in and out of the pitch, so we have to keep going and make sure we qualify for the Euros.”last_img read more

Nick Saban Addresses Alabama Quarterback Battle

first_imgA closeup of Nick Saban during a press conference.TAMPA, FL – JANUARY 09: Head coach Nick Saban of the Alabama Crimson Tide speaks during a press conference after the Clemson Tigers defeated the Alabama Crimson Tide 35-31 in the 2017 College Football Playoff National Championship Game at Raymond James Stadium on January 9, 2017 in Tampa, Florida. (Photo by Brian Blanco/Getty Images)Nick Saban took the podium at SEC media days today. Naturally, the Alabama quarterback battle was a big topic, to the legendary coach’s chagrin.Alabama is in the advantageous, yet touchy, place of having two quarterbacks that are probably good enough to win a national title. With that being the case, both of those guys are going to want to be in situations where they can play.Jalen Hurts led the team to the title game last year, losing to Deshaun Watson’s Clemson Tigers. This year, he brought Alabama back, but struggled in the first half vs. Georgia and was replaced by Tua Tagovailoa, who led the Crimson Tide to the win.Tagovailoa admitted that he had some transfer thoughts during the season. Now, Hurts is a serious transfer risk for Alabama.Nick Saban insists that no choice has been made between Hurts and Tagovailoa in the Alabama quarterback battle.He got pretty snippy with reporters when asked about it during his press conference this afternoon.Saban: “It’s still to be determined who will play quarterback for Alabama. You can ask all the questions you want, but it’s still to be determined.”— Stewart Mandel (@slmandel) July 18, 2018Nick Saban at #SECMD18: On the “quarterback controversy that you love to create and have already created … is still to be determined.”— Gene Sapakoff (@Sapakoff) July 18, 2018That’s no surprise. You got annoyed Saban during these things more often than not.Still, it is a very valid question. Two of the best quarterbacks in the country are on the same roster, and there’s a very good chance that one is on his way out when a decision is made.Saban’s timeline was actually aided by a spring injury to Tagovailoa. He is the expected winner of the quarterback battle, even if it lasts into the season. However, he was very limited due to a hand injury in the spring, making it impossible to really make a determination during the spring.In all likelihood, we’ll see both guys get time for at least a few weeks to start the year. Alabama opens with a game against Louisville in Orlando on September 1.last_img read more

India vs South Africa: ICC running behind time. Tweets Day 2 report on Day 3 of Pune Test

first_imgIndia vs South Africa: ICC running behind time. Tweets Day 2 report on Day 3 of Pune TestICC committed a glaring error while posting the 3rd day’s report from the ongoing Pune Test between India and South Africa.advertisement India Today Web Desk PuneOctober 12, 2019UPDATED: October 12, 2019 19:13 IST Virat Kohli celebrates the dismissal of Theunis de Bruyn on Day 3 of Pune Test. (AP Photo)HIGHLIGHTSICC posted the 3rd day’s summary as ‘DAY TWO REPORT’The mistake was also seen on the ICC websiteICC hadn’t deleted the tweet till the time this article was publishedThe International Cricket Council (ICC) on Saturday made a huge mistake after the end of the 3rd day’s play between India and South Africa. As is usual practice, ICC tweeted the day’s report on its Twitter page. But there was a glaring error in the tweet and the actual report which was somehow missed by the governing body.ICC had captioned the report as thus: “Philander and Maharaj shared a 109-run partnership but couldn’t stop India finishing off the South African innings by stumps. #INDvSA DAY TWO REPORT”. ICC Twitter screengrabWhat caught the fans’ eye was the last 3 words: ‘DAY TWO REPORT’, as it should have actually said ‘DAY 3 REPORT’. The mistake, however, went a level deeper if one happened to open the particular report.The subtitle of the day’s report on ICC’s website went: ‘Ind v SA, 2nd Test, day two, report’ – again erroneously calling the 3rd day as the 2nd. ICC website screengrabIt should be noted that the tweet in question, which was posted at 17.41 IST, had still not been deleted by the ICC and neither was the day’s report edited to reflect the correct day of the ongoing Pune Test.Earlier, South Africa finally showed some fight on the 3rd day in Pune and the fight came from unexpected corners for the Proteas on the third day at the MCA Stadium.After India had run through the top-order, Vernon Philander and Keshav Maharaj were involved in a record 9th wicket stand to stall India. The duo batted out 43.1 overs before Ra Ashwin (4/69) wrapped up the innings handing India a massive 326-run lead.advertisementAlso Read | India vs South Africa 2nd Test: India take 326-run lead after Philander-Maharaj resistanceAlso Read | India vs South Africa 2nd Test: Intruder in Pune leaves Sunil Gavaskar fumingFor sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.

Cataloochee Escape

first_imgWe’ve found the ideal winter getaway combo—days spent challenging snow covered hills on skis and snowboards and nights snuggled up by the fire in a cozy cabin at an adjacent dude ranch.At one time Cataloochee Ski Area and Cataloochee Ranch were under the same ownership, but the family who continues to own the ranch concentrates now on welcoming lodging guests while the ski slopes are under different management. The two work closely together, however, to make sure everyone has a great mountaintop experience in Maggie Valley, N.C.Getting Ready for the Season Beginning November 1 Cataloochee Ski Area staff are primed to begin snowmaking as soon as the temperature dips low enough. Check out the schedule for when the slopes will be open for the 2013-2014 season here.  If you’re just starting out, they can set you up with lessons. And get this: those beginner lessons are free every non-holiday Monday through Thursday if you rent your equipment there.A Little Piece of HeavenAfter a day on the slopes, head next door to Cataloochee Ranch to warm up by the fire and recharge your batteries. A hearty dinner and breakfast are included in your stay. We predict you’ll want to kiss the cook when you chow down on homemade favorites. Lunch is offered as well, but you’ll need to pay as you go for this meal.The original owners of the ranch, Tom and Judy Alexander, converted a stone and log cattle barn into the main ranch house where they raised their family. Today, the ranch is in the hands of second and third generations of the family and the six bedrooms in the rustic ranch house provide cozy comfort to visitors. There are also 12 rental cabins on this 900+ acre property as well as the Silverbell Lodge, perfect for groups who want to travel together. It can hold up to 24 people.Mix and Mingle While you can retreat into the comfort of your cabin without any disturbance from the outside world, you can also enjoy feeling like you’re part of the Cataloochee Ranch family. You might be seated at dinner next to one of the family members or enjoy getting to know guests from other parts of the country. They have a social hour before dinner, and even offer live entertainment on select evenings. If the crowd is lively enough, watch for them to slide back sofas to create a dance floor.Rev up the next morning with a big breakfast—platters of bacon, eggs, homemade biscuits and jellies, grits, oatmeal and more—and hit the slopes again. Perfect getaway, right? Yes, we think so too.Cataloochee Ranch, 119 Ranch Drive, Maggie Valley, N.C. 28751 | 800-868-1401  info@cataloocheeranch.comCataloochee Ski Area, 1080 Ski Lodge Road, Maggie Valley, N.C. 28751 | 800-768-0285  ski2@cataloochee.com 12 Reasons South Dakota Deserves Your Attention If You Haven’t Visited the Kentucky Bourbon Trail, What Are You Waiting For?

Got an Extra $260 Million? Most of Hawaii’s Molokai Island Could Be Yours.

first_imgPrevious Getting to Know Rhum Agricole, Rum’s Grassy Sibling We’re not breaking new ground by saying Hawaii is the most beautiful of all the United States (sorry, California). It’s no wonder that it tops most traveler’s bucket lists as their No. 1 must-visit destination. But living in the Aloha State can prove prohibitively, even impossibly, expensive — which is why the newest listing from Sotheby’s International Realty seems so outlandish. However, if you happen to be Hawaiian royalty, in the top 1 percent among one-percenters, or a recent Powerball winner with some cash to burn, it could be yours.The $260 million sale of Molokai Ranch is a once-in-a-lifetime real estate deal, providing its lucky new owners the chance to secure 35 percent of Molokai Island. Just to be clear: This is an opportunity to buy more than one-third of a major Hawaiian island all for yourself. The 55,000-acre purchase would place the forthcoming owner among the top five private landowners in the state of Hawaii. Incidentally, it’s difficult to imagine just how much land the other four own.The scale of the ranch is literally unbelievable. The property is roughly the size of the city of Boston and consists of 300 individual parcels spanning all of Hawaii’s varied terrain types, from rainforest to verdant farmland to pristine beaches to dramatic sea cliffs. Provided you’re the entrepreneurial sort (which seems like a given in this tax bracket), the long list of existing businesses on the property — a golf course, numerous residences, an oceanfront resort, nature preserves, and lots and lots of agricultural land — could prove a wise and fruitful investment.Of course, you could just buy it all, kick every last person out, and live out your days in Howard Hughes fashion, lording over one of the most beautiful pieces of land in the most beautiful state in the country. The ranch offers more than 20 miles of private coastline adjacent to the south shore of Molokai, which is home to Hawaii’s most extensive and protected reef system. It’s difficult to imagine why you would ever need or want to leave. Should you desire human interaction, however, all the services of Honolulu and nearby islands are less than 30 minutes away by private plane.Images courtesy of Sothebys Realty. 1 of 9 Next Learn Guitar (and Don’t Give Up) With the Fender Play App center_img Ride Out the Apocalypse With the 1,000-Horsepower Rezvani Tank X SUV Get to the Choppa!

Channel Your Inner Paul Bunyan With These Log Cabin Kit Homes

first_img Pluspuu Pluspuu Pluspuu Pluspuu Next There’s a ruggedly romantic notion of a log cabin by a lake in the middle of the woods. It presents the ideal escape from daily life. A one room space with just the bare basics, built from trees you felled yourself. Log cabins are the original man caves. But they present a host of long-term problems that will make you regret your decision after just a few months of living out your lumberjack dreams. Luckily there is a company that has a solution.Pluspuu, a Finnish design firm, has developed a unique line of log cabin kit homes that address all of the common problems of a traditional log cabin home while providing the modern comforts of home we love.PluspuuPluspuu made sure their log cabin homes are durable, affordable, and stylish. One of the biggest issues with traditional log cabins is the shrinking and settling of the beams – a natural occurrence as the wood “breaths” in different seasons and weather. Working with a builder who specializes in log homes, Pluspuu developed non-shrinking beams. This means no settling and none of the constant post-construction maintenance that comes with typical log cabin homes. This unique innovation keeps building and material costs down, making these homes more affordable and sustainable than other log homes. The strength of this system also eliminates the need for internal support walls. Gone are the days of the one-room log cabin. Pulspuu’s kit homes are wide open, spacious and can be built as large as you want. Of course they also offer smaller models that keep in line with the notion of the tiny escape cabin in the woods.PluspuuPluspuu delivers the parts and quickly pieces it all together on site. They offer eleven different models, including a sauna. All have large windows, unlike your standard cabin, making them bright and airy. The interiors can be decked out in whatever finish suits your style. Keep with the rustic theme and go with natural wood on the floors, walls and ceiling. Or for a touch of city life in the forest, there is a mid-century modern style interior complete with concrete tile floor, a stainless steel kitchen, and white painted wooden walls and ceiling.PluspuuAnd don’t worry, the folks as Pluspuu know that anyone looking to build a log cabin will probably be spending more time outside than in, so they put just as much thought into the exterior of the homes. Their variety of options come in everything from a traditional gabled roof with white painted logs to an ultra contemporary mono-pitched roof with charcoal finish logs. Each model provides a spacious outdoor patio or deck for relaxing outside. There’s even the option for a rooftop deck.PluspuuRanging in size from 650 to 1,340 square feet, there is a Pluspuu log cabin home to fit every need. Set it up as a weekend retreat or permanently escape the hustle and bustle of the real world. Whichever style you choose, you’ll be living like Paul Bunyan in no time.For another non-traditional take on the cabin in the woods, check out this A-Frame cabin kit along with this backcountry hut building company for a truly off-grid home away from home.

Across nine categories — Bourbon, Rye, Single Malt Whiskey, Unaged Rum, Aged Rum, Vodka, Flavored Vodka, Gin, and Brandy — we blind-tasted multiple products from around the country to determine our champions. Each of the winning bottles was judged on appearance, aroma, palate, finish, and how well the product represented the category as a whole. Our focus on smaller craft distillers in the U.S. allowed us to highlight spirits that, we hoped, our readers have not tried yet.Best Unaged RumBayou Silver RumRum is a distillate made from fermented sugar cane juice, sugar cane syrup, molasses, other sugar cane byproducts, or some combination thereof. The product is distilled at less than 190 proof and bottled at no less than 80 proof. Typically known as Caribbean spirits, rums are produced around the world and were a key ingredient during the colonial era here in the United States.Dan Baker/The ManualBayou Silver Rum (40 percent alcohol by volume) is an unaged rum made from a blend of local, unrefined sugar cane and molasses by Bayou Rum Distillery of Louisiana. We really enjoyed its cleanness. The tropical notes that underpin the sweet vanilla and butterscotch characteristics make it an easy-to-drink spirit, both on its own and as a component to a variety of cocktails. There’s just enough heat to remind you that you’re drinking an unaged rum, but not too much to distract from the overall experience. And the best part? Bayou Silver Rum is available nationwide.Tasting NotesAppearance: Bayou Silver is clear.Nose: Heavy vanilla characteristics meet butterscotch and some black pepper notes.Palate: Somewhat viscous, you’re immediately greeted with more vanilla and butterscotch that lead into banana flavors, followed by some hints of tropical fruit. There’s a certain amount of heat to the rum, but it is not overwhelming.Finish: The heat follows through on the finish with a general sweetness composed of more vanilla notes. The blend of molasses and sugar cane creates a certain vibrancy that leaves a pleasant memory on the tongue after swallowing.About the DistilleryBayou Rum is distilled in Lacassine, Louisiana, about 20 minutes east of Lake Charles and three hours west of New Orleans. Bayou Rum Distillery’s parent company, Louisiana Spirits, was founded in 2011 by three friends who decided to create a spirit that utilized local sugar cane, which had been cultivated in the state as far back as the 1700s. What resulted was Bayou Rum, which has grown to become the top craft rum in the country.In total, the distillery puts out four products (one unaged and three aged): Bayou Silver, Bayou Spiced, Bayou Satsuma, and Bayou Select. Regardless of the spirit, each rum uses a blend of sugar cane molasses and raw sugar that is distilled in a copper pot still. In the case of Bayou Satsuma, Bayou Select (rum that is aged in bourbon barrels for up to three years using a Solera method) is blended with satsuma oranges to create the liqueur. The rum is then hand-bottled and shipped out across the nation.How to Enjoy It In a CocktailDaiquiriThe daiquiri is a classic rum cocktail enjoyed by countless, including none other than Ernest Hemingway. With only three ingredients, this cocktail allows the rum to really shine through. The sweet vanilla and banana flavors blend seamlessly with the lime for a crisp, clean drink. For step-by-step instructions, check out our detailed video on how to make a daiquiri.center_img Editors’ Recommendations A gold rum, Montanya Oro Rum boasts oak and fruit flavors that mix with black pepper and wood notes. There is some apple in there as well, leading to a great sipping experience.Cane sugar and molasses are heavy on the nose and across the palate of Red Harbor Rum, with vanilla and some wood flavors presenting themselves towards the end.
