United may regret sacking Jose now the ‘dinosaur’ is roaring back with Spurs

first_imgJosé Mourinho hails Dele Alli’s work-rate after Tottenham star continues resurgence with double vs BournemouthNobody remembers the dull games. Nobody remembers that the 1999 Champions League Final was the worst on record until injury time.How two years after that triumph Sir Alex himself admitted this trophy could not be won with cavalier football anymore.Even he became pragmatic in the pursuit of another triumph in club football’s greatest competition.The treble team was the perfect storm, but not always the norm.Ole Solskjaer is trying to recreate something that was done with players like Ryan Giggs, David Becham, Roy Keane, Dwight Yorke and Andy Cole.With defenders like Rio Ferdinand and Nemanja Vidic and the other great players Sir Alex bought or nurtured.It can’t be done with this current group no matter how he gets them to play.Still Mourinho achieved great things with the players at his disposal.In two seasons at the helm of United he won the League Cup, Europa League, came second in the Premier League and reached an FA Cup Final.There is no asterix against those achievements saying: ‘Ah yes but he didn’t play football the right way.’What is the right way?In the Europa League Final in Stockholm against Ajax he did it the right way.That night he faced a young, vibrant, short passing, high pressing, Dutch side who would hound you in your own half.So what did Mourinho do. He told his players to launch the ball into the opposition’s half as soon as they got it.High and long , to utilise the height and ability to hold the ball up that Marouane Fellaini could possess and the speed of Marcus Rashford.3It worked a treat. The Ajax coach spoke afterwards as if Mourinho had cheated, but there was only one coach holding the trophy and taking the acclaim of his fans.Just as he did after the most exciting final at the new Wembley when they beat Southampton 3-2 to win the League Cup.He told everyone that coming second in the league the following season was one of his greatest achievements, and people scoffed. They now know what he means.Think about it. This time 18 months ago,United were better than Liverpool and Mauricio Pochettino’s Spurs.There is no doubt The Special One could be the awkward one too, but still the club allowed a situation to develop where five months after finishing second he was sacked.They knew better when he wanted to sell the over hyped Anthony Martial, better when he said they had to push the boat out to get Harry Maguire.Better when they failed to fully back him in his problems with expensive flop Paul Pogba.When he said in LA two summers ago that Pogba needed to start playing for United as he did for France in winning the World Cup he was deemed spiteful.He wasn’t, he was spot on.3LATEST MAN UTD NEWSLive Blogunited newsMan Utd news LIVE – Latest updates from Old TraffordMAN DOWNUtd and City face TWO-WEEK summer if they reach Euro finals before new Prem seasonDEPAY CHARTMan Utd flop Memphis used computer data and analytics to quit Old TraffordODS ON?Ighalo to leave Man Utd TOMORROW unless dramatic extension can be reachedPEA SHOOTERHernandez: Man Utd ‘still haunted’ by ‘mistake’ of Moyes replacing FergusonDEVIL’S ADVOCATEEx-Man Utd star Chadwick dreaded being picked for Keane’s team in trainingMourinho refused to indulge Pogba. Now he is allowed to do what he wants including picking and choosing which holiday destinations to go to while he recovers from an ankle injury.Another criticism laid at Mourinho’s door was that he put the brakes on this fabled Academy production line of players.Yet it was he who took the kids on the pre-season tour of the States 18 months ago.He who promoted Scott McTominay into the first team.Mourinho had his faults but he did a great job for Manchester United.One early signs are telling us he is now doing for Spurs.The ‘dinosaur’ is roaring again and his next victim could well come tomorrow night. WHEN Jose Mourinho marches down the touchline tomorrow night Old Trafford might well wonder why on earth they let this man go.There were no tears spilt when 11 months ago he was shown the door at this great club.3 Jose Mourinho won the Europa League with Man Utd and club has gone into decline sinceCredit: Getty – ContributorJose Mourinho has won three out of three since taking over at Tottenham last monthApparently he had sucked the life out of the place, failed to tap into it’s DNA, played boring football, some even said he was man past his time, a footballing dinosaur.A quick look at what he achieved and where they are now might cause a rethink.A former national team boss in the Old Trafford press room on Sunday summed it up about the current state at Manchester United.He had just completed his media duties for the 2-2 draw with Aston Villa having also been at Bramall Lane for the 3-3 the Sunday before.“I tell you what,” he said “The games are certainly exciting. As long as you are not bothered about the results.”And that’s the problem at United, having to please two camps. Those who want free flowing football and the need to get results.Because you can’t always do both.To listen to some Manchester United fans you would think every game was won 4-3 under Sir Alex Ferguson with two goals in injury time from a team filled with Academy graduates.last_img read more

Delta moving HQ to valley

first_imgPALMDALE – Vehicle-barricade manufacturer Delta Scientific is moving its headquarters from Valencia to its Palmdale plant, bringing about another 50 workers to the high desert. Delta Scientific expects to compete the move of its headquarters operations to Palmdale by mid-July. The Valencia operations include administration, engineering and some specialized manufacturing functions. “We are making the final move to Palmdale because we really enjoy working here,” said David Dickinson, the company’s senior vice president. “Everything we had hoped for is coming to fruition.” The company is also nearing completion of an expansion with the addition of a $4 million, 57,000-square-foot staging and shipping and receiving building. The building will join the company’s $8 million, 125,000-square-foot plant in the Fairway Business Park on Avenue O just west of Division Street. The company’s products include a pop-up barricade capable of stopping a 10-ton truck traveling at 50 mph and guard booths made with steel plating thick enough to block bullets from an AK-47 assault rifle. Earlier this year, the company announced it had installed anti-terrorist vehicle barriers at the international cruise ship terminal at Sydney Harbour in Australia. Each of the barricades is designed to stop and destroy a 15,000-pound vehicle traveling 50 mph. It is set in a foundation only 18 inches deep. At Sydney Harbour, the barriers prevent speeding vehicles from getting past the guard post at the Overseas Passenger Terminal at Circular Quay, where about 90 vessels are expected to dock during the busy summer months. james.skeen@dailynews.com (661) 267-5743160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

They are a great partner for the business park.” Delta, a manufacturer of vehicle barricades, parking control equipment and guard booths, opened its manufacturing plant in Palmdale in April 2004 to keep up with the demand for its products since the 9-11 terrorist attacks. The company has about 220 workers. The company also has operations in Virginia and in the United Kingdom. Delta Scientific’s products are in use at more than 160 U.S. embassies around the world and at more than 110 federal buildings, including courthouses and FBI offices.

The Lough Erne venue has no football fields available to Donegal, but they could host their training sessions through the use of local club facilities.Located a few miles outside Enniskillen towards the Donegal border, the Lough Erne resort is a high-end venue that hosted the G8 summit and world leaders last summer.Its golf resort was designed by Nick Faldo while Rory McIlroy is rather famously its touring professional.There are a number of team-building activities the group may consider while there for light relief from all the tactical training, such as raft-building on Lough Erne, Four by Four driving and Laser Clay shooting. The hotel also has a number of purpose-built conference rooms, ideal for hosting strategy meetings as Donegal manager Jim McGuinness and his backroom team figure out how to decode Kerry on September 21.Last month, then-Armagh manager Paul Grimley took his squad to Lough Erne the weekend ahead of their All-Ireland quarter-final against Donegal and they trained in Brewster Park, Enniskillen, on the Saturday morning. COUNTDOWN TO CROKER – DONEGAL TO USE TOP GOLF RESORT FOR TRAINING CAMP was last modified: September 9th, 2014 by StephenShare 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:donegalFermanaghLough Erne Resortlast_img read more

Glitch knocks out phone service

first_imgA computer software problem knocked out long- distance telephone service including the 9-1-1 system to Whittier residents and tens of thousands of other residential and business customers in the 562 area code Tuesday, officials said. The problem prompted emergency response officials to increase police patrols in some areas and advise residents to use their cell phones to call 9- 1- 1. “A sergeant called me to say that we’re getting no calls in,’ said Capt. Irma Becerra of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department’s Pico Rivera Station, who was notified at 5 a.m. that there was a problem with phone lines into the station. Becerra said she ordered the station’s Emergency Operations Center activated and also assigned deputies to check on area oil well facilities and local senior centers, hospitals and fire stations. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWalnut’s Malik Khouzam voted Southern California Boys Athlete of the Week In addition, 9-1-1 service was disrupted to the Whittier Police Department and the sheriff’s Norwalk Station. The problem affected Verizon Communications customers and began around 2:20 a.m. at the company’s central office in Long Beach, Verizon spokesman Bill Kula said. Local calls were possible but long- distance service was interrupted, he said. The outage was not related to a storm that passed through the region, Kula said. By 2 p.m., full phone service was restored to all customers, Verizon officials said. The equipment that failed is particularly important because it links a number of Verizon call centers and also acts as a hub for routing and processing 9- 1- 1 calls. The cross connect, or tandem switch as it is also called, rarely fails, Kula said. Backup systems that were supposed to kick in did not, Kula said. Technicians do not know why the backup systems also failed. “It’s a very rare day when a cross connect doesn’t perform as it is supposed to,’ Kula said. “Today, regrettably, proved to be one of those days.’ Emergency officials said they were unaware of any significant emergency response issues. People could reach emergency dispatchers by using their cell phones to dial 9-1-1. In Pico Rivera, deputies recruited the help of local HAM radio operators as a precaution in the event that all other communication sources failed. “An officer banged on my door at 6 a.m. this morning,’ said HAM radio operator Judy Robbins. “He told us to come to the station as soon as possible. Part of doing amateur radio is that you commit to public service.’ @tagline columnist : Sandy Mazza can be reached at (562) 698-0955, Ext. 3026, or by e-mail at sandy.mazza@sgvn.com. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
