The £100m worth of talent Man United need

first_img Kevin Strootman – AS Roma – Valuation: £20m – Click the arrow for the defender who could be a top class replacement for Vidic and Ferdinand – Another player with strong links to United is Kevin Strootman. A known favourite of former Netherlands boss Louis van Gaal, there is an air of inevitability that the two will work together again in some capacity. As talkSPORT have been told, Van Gaal has made it his mission to bring in the midfielder to help bring some much-needed steel to the centre of the pitch. However, with Roma warning United off one of their star men, the Red Devils will have to pay a sizeable sum for his services. Fabian Schar – Basel – Valuation: £7m – Click the arrow for a midfielder who could transform United’s fortunes! – Van Gaal is known to be a huge advocate of youth, but given his decision to ship out a sizable number of United’s youngsters over the summer indicates that he simply does not rate many of the players coming from the academy. The Dutchman seems keen on giving younger, more established players a chance though, and as such has been loosely linked with a move for Basel’s 22-year-old Swiss defender Fabian Schar. Schar has been building a reputation for himself over the past few seasons and now could be set for a move. At around £7m, he looks like a comparable bargain, but would he solve United’s problems? 5 Mats Hummels – Borussia Dortmund – Valuation: £30m – – Click the arrow to see “one of the most talented players of his generation” – perfect for Old Trafford? – United’s interest in the Germany World Cup winning defender is well documented and while a deal is believed to be possible, United will have to spend a sizable sum to tempt Dortmund into selling. Hummels is valued at around £30m, but his defensive abilities and leadership would surely bring some much-needed stability to United’s rocky defence. 5 5 Marquinhos – Paris Saint-Germain – Valuation: £22m – Click the arrow to see the other players Man United should sign to get them back on top! – The former Roma man is widely regarded to be one of the top young defenders in Europe and while he has frequently appeared for PSG this season, he has shown that he is arguably exactly what United need at the back. The French champions boast excellent depth in defence, with David Luiz joining Thiago Silva in a bustling squad, but the Red Devils would certainly have to make any potential deal worth PSG’s while. 5 Marco Verratti – Paris Saint-Germain – Valuation: £21m – Click the arrow for more – Described by PSG’s president as “one of the most talented players of his generation”, Marco Verratti continues to be linked with United and for good reason. His talents in the centre of midfield are well known, so much so that PSG recently offered him a one-year contract extension, so it will take a sizable sum to lure him away. Strong in a tackle and threatening all over the pitch, Verratti has attracted a number of admirers. They’ve already spent an estimated £150m on players, but if Manchester United are to challenge for the Premier League again, then they will probably need to spend another £100m according to one former Red Devil.Ex-United star and coach Phil Neville recently commented that while his former club had brought in some enviable names over the summer months, they remain a number of players short of being a domestic force again.That was perhaps no more evident than on Sunday, when Louis van Gaal’s side let a 3-1 lead slip – eventually falling to Leicester City 5-3.United’s need for defensive reinforcements is there for all to see, but who should they be spending their £100m on?Click the arrow to see who Man United should be targeting… 5last_img read more

first_imgDonegal’s 2016 Tidy Towns Seminar took place in Ireland’s tidiest town, Letterkenny. The seminar, which was hosted by Donegal County Council, took place in The Radisson Hotel with over 50 people attending.In his opening address the Cathaoirleach of Donegal County Council Cllr. Ciaran Brogan welcomed all the participants to the event. He said “As a Letterkenny man myself, I am delighted to welcome all of you to Ireland’s tidiest town and I am especially delighted to welcome Anne O’Leary, a national adjudicator in the Tidy Towns Competition.”He added “I would like to congratulate the representatives of all the Tidy Towns on the work they do day in day out to keep their own towns and villages in tip top shape”.The Cathaoirleach also paid tribute to the work of the Council staff and mentioned in particular the Councils Litter Wardens. He stated that “these staff work at the coalface doing what is at times a very difficult job. However, by working hand in hand with communities across the county, our litter wardens are working hard to tackle the scourge of illegal dumping and littering that continues to blight our county”. Seamus Neely, Chief Executive of Donegal County Council echoed the sentiments expressed by the Cathaoirleach and acknowledged the great work being done by Tidy Town Committees throughout the county.“The contribution made by these committees and by their many volunteers is vital in terms of supporting not only the social fabric of our towns and villages but also in supporting the economic development of our county. Tourism is an important sector for Donegal and if we are to continue to promote Donegal as an ideal holiday destination then we must ensure that we can provide a positive experience for our visitors and the beauty of our natural environment and of the built environment of our towns and villages have a huge role to play in creating this positive visitor experience.Anne O’Leary, a national adjudicator with the Tidy Towns Competition provided the participants with plenty of food for thought with her presentation on what adjudicators are looking for when they visit competing towns and villages during the competition. She included examples of best practice from various locations around the country and gave tips and advice on how to make the best use of existing streetscapes and iconic buildings.Fiona Kelly and Suzanne Bogan from Donegal County Council provided the audience with information on incorporating sustainable waste and resource management principles and good practice techniques within the work of the committee. This area has become increasingly important in the overall competition and committees were urged to look at ways to increase their scores by introducing new practices into their ongoing activity.In his address, Jonathon Officer from The Radisson Hotel Letterkenny provided an interesting business perspective and gave details of the various actions that the Radisson Hotel has put in place to manage their resources in a more sustainable way. He encouraged committees to work with businesses as well as residents in their local areas and clearly demonstrated that good sustainable practices also made good business sense.The seminar concluded with participants being encouraged to visit a number of stands including the Letterkenny Men’s Shed project, Letterkenny Tidy Towns Committee, Donegal County Councils Litter Management Team and representatives from the Councils Communications Office.

Will 2010 Be the Year of the Smartphone?

first_imgA Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Related Posts frederic lardinois For more details about the launch of the Nexus One, see our live blog of Google’s press event. Later today, Google plans to unveil its own smartphone, the Nexus One. According to new data from research firm Forrerster’s new U.S. Omnibus Survey, Google is launching this phone at just the right time. Today, 17% of U.S. adult who subscribe to a cell phone plan use smartphones. This number is up from 11% in 2008 and 7% in 2007. Thanks to the growing importance of Android, Forrester thinks that 2010 will be “the year of the smartphone.” Forrester’s Charles S. Golvin also notes that quick messaging devices with closed operating systems like the LG Xenon are still growing at a rapid pace as well. Currently, about 15% of adult subscribers own one of these devices. While the growth of this category slowed down somewhat over 2009, it still eclipsed that of the smartphone segment. As prices for smartphones continue to come down and as developers manage to overcome some of the usability issues of current devices, more and more users will opt for full-blown smartphones instead of quick messaging devices in the coming years.While Android and Apple’s iPhone are clearly driving the adoption of smartphones – and the Nexus One will surely play its part in this in 2010 – it’s important to note that BlackBerry still maintains its two-to-one advantage over the iPhone.The Google PhoneIt’ll be interesting to see how Google will market the Nexus One. Thanks to numerousearlyreviews, there is very little that we don’t know about the phone itself at this point. Chances are that Google has a few surprises up its sleeve for today’s announcement. After all, the company must have known that today’s press briefing would come long after all the details about the actual hardware of the phone had leaked already.center_img Tags:#news#NYT#web Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic…last_img read more

YouTube Steps Up to Shine Light on Egypt

first_imgVideo sharing website YouTube has been highlighting video from the protests in Egypt for days, but tonight the official YouTube blog put up a post describing a number of steps it’s taking to make sure the world knows what’s going on in Cairo, Alexandria, Suez and elsewhere around that country. The Egyptian government is trying hard to black-out all media coverage of the huge protests challenging the three decade long rule of President Hosni Mubarak, but media is still getting out. YouTube appears to be doing what it can: every page on the site now has a banner pointing to the collection of Egypt protest videos, those videos are highlighted on the site’s front page and YouTube is streaming Al Jazeera’s coverage in English and Arabic. Imagine what would happen if Twitter and Facebook did something like this.The protests in Egypt are a huge story in politics, in media and in technology. Egypt is one of the most geopolitically important countries in the world. Understood in context, these protests could be key in an unfolding history that changes the world forever. Old media is rushing to Egypt to cover it as well as it can: Nicholas Kristof and Anderson Cooper, for example, are Tweeting and Facebooking up a storm from the streets of Cairo.It’s fitting of YouTube’s role in a rapidly transforming media world that the site is aiming the focus of its audiences directly at these important offline events. Twitter’s making it easier for Egyptians to Tweet by phone. Facebook is being used extensively by protesters for their own communication. Do you think it would be a good idea for Facebook to take official steps to draw the eyes of all the rest of its users to the conflict in Egypt?

World Cup Twenty20: IPL helps opponents plot India’s downfall

first_imgIt has almost become fashionable for the Indian Premier League (IPL) to be blamed for all the ills that plague cricket, all around the world.But in the case of India’s campaigns at every World Twenty20 since the billion-dollar league made its debut back in 2008, there’s a clear trend – opposition teams exploit their familiarity with the Indian players to plot their downfall.Take the example of India’s two tormentors in Friday’s game – Aussies Shane Watson and David Warner. They have played five and four seasons of the IPL respectively and the former admitted after the game that the fact that he was used to facing the Indian spinners helped his cause.”I have been lucky in a way that I have been able to play all those spinners in the IPL over the past few years, so I knew how they were going to bowl to me and how they were going to try to get me out,” the all-rounder said.Australia and South Africa are the two countries that contribute the maximum number of players to the league, apart from India, and almost every player from those countries talks about using his IPL experience against the Indians.George Bailey, the Australia skipper, has played just four IPL games for the Chennai Super Kings, but has seen the likes of MS Dhoni, Suresh Raina, Ravichandran Ashwin and Lakshmipathy Balaji at close quarters over the last four years.”This game can be very fickle and you don’t decide on basis of one or two performances. I have tried to follow that while selecting the Australian team. I have learnt a lot there,” Bailey had said before the game. Chennai teammate Albie Morkel of South Africa is more blunt in his assessment.”Well, it certainly helps having played alongside these players. Since I have shared the change room with these guys, I will be able to give inputs to my team about them and vice-versa. But then, they will also need to make adjustments to stay ahead of everyone,” he says.That’s something the Indians seem to do very irregularly, which has led to a massive decline in their T20 record. None of the players in the squad of 15 – bar Ashoke Dinda and, to a certain extent, Ashwin – has used the IPL as a vehicle to the India shirt. That just goes to show that the league, which was supposed to be a showcase for Indian talent, has had the opposite of the desired effect.advertisementlast_img read more
