Paul Ince compares Mourinho’s Man United to German national side for this reason

Paul Ince compares Mourinho’s Man United to German national side for this reason

Sports
Jose Mourinho is setting up his Manchester United side to flourish in the latter stages of the season, according to former-Red Paul Ince. The Portuguese manager may be looking to ensure a strong finish from his side, suggested Ince, with the Reds still in the UEFA Champions League and FA Cup. A 0-0 draw against Sevilla away from home means Man United need any kind of win at Old Trafford in the second leg in a couple of weeks time to ensure progress in Europe’s elite club competition. Meanwhile, United beat Huddersfield Town comfortably with two goals from Romelu Lukaku and will face Brighton & Hove Albion in the quarter-finals of the FA Cup. Mourinho has four European trophies to his name and countless domestic cups. His CV is not in doubt, but United don’t look capable, at this stage

Abbreviated pundit round-up: Why must only one side in gun culture war show respect? Impeach Thomas?

Abbreviated pundit round-up: Why must only one side in gun culture war show respect? Impeach Thomas?

Politics
E.J. Dionne Jr. at The Washington Post writes—Why is only one side in the gun culture war required to show respect? You have perhaps heard the joke about the liberal who is so open-minded that he can’t even take his own side in an argument. What’s less funny is that on gun control, liberals (and their many allies who are moderate, conservative and nonideological) have been told for years that if they do take their own side in the argument, they will only hurt their cause. Supporters of even modest restrictions on firearms are regularly instructed that their ardent advocacy turns off Americans in rural areas and small towns. Those in favor of reforming our firearms laws are scolded as horrific elitists who disrespect a valued way of life. And as the mass killings continue, we are urged

Who will win the Champions League? We are now at halftime in the Champions League last-16 knockout rounds. After the first-leg ties, several teams can already feel confident of their place in the last 8. Bayern Munich, for example, seem certain of their quarterfinal spot after they trounced Besiktas 5-0 in Germany. Two Premier League sides, Liverpool and Man City, are also shoo-ins to advance through to the next round. Liverpool pulled off a major shock as they scored five times in their away win at FC Porto.

Man United legend names the side he wished Mourinho’s team played like

Not ideal While Manchester United got a draw at Sevilla in the Champions League this evening, they certainly didn’t do it in style and it’s got some talking. It was honestly a dreadful match to watch, very little quality but Man United got the job done that they set out to do at the end of the day. Unfortunately for Jose Mourinho, that is often what puts the pressure on him with many criticising his defensive setups. Thankfully for the Old Trafford boss, the result tonight will likely guarantee Manchester United’s place in the next round of the Champions League. Though, one Man United legend wishes that his old side would have done it a bit more stylishly. Not only stylishly, but in the Barcelona way and that legend comes in the form of none other than Paul Scholes who kn

Leeds want to sign this powerful forward, would be ideal for Heckingbottom's side - originally posted on Sportslens.com Leeds United will look to sign the Nigerian forward Jerry Mbakogu at the end of the season. The Championship outfit tried to sign the Carpi attacker last month but the Serie B side were not keen on losing a key player halfway through the season. Mbakogu is likely to cost around £3.5million and he will add some much-needed pace and power to Leeds’ attacking unit. The Nigerian has scored 6 goals so far this season and he is looking to guide his side to a promotion play-off place in Serie B. Mbakogu is looking to secure a dual Italian passport and once that is sorted, Leeds will be able to complete the transfer without any work permit issues. The Whites signed P...
