Robin van Persie set to retire at end of Dutch season

Let’s ignore Ockham’s Razor and entertain some of them. Did Sonny Liston take a dive? By , Muhammad Ali was no longer Cassius Clay and had taken the world heavyweight title from the grasp of intimidating bruiser Sonny Liston. Their second title fight in Maine however, would be shrouded in controversy forevermore. Ali caught Liston with what looked an innocuous counter-punch in the first-round, but Liston hit the canvas. Referee Jersey Joe Walcott did not begin the count, and the after Liston stayed down for more than 10 seconds the fight was stopped after a brief resumption. Ali won on technical knockout, and the decisive blow was called ‘The Phantom Punch’. Rumours abound that Liston bet against on himself to pay off gambling debts, that the Nation of Islam made threats against his life or the Mafia fixed the result. Ali’s punch did catch Liston a glancing blow to the temple however, and that would be the simplest explanation. Make your own mind up.

An A-Z of 80 years of promoting youth October 30, Today marks the 80th anniversary of Manchester United having an academy graduate in every single match day squad. For context, the club with next longest run is Everton with over 1, consecutive games over a period of 21 years. In other words, United — City 0. Unlike many teams in the league, United are in a position to buy all their first team squad players, yet instead of doing that, they always include academy graduates.

Today is a day for the recognition we deserve.

Van Persie also ended his barren run of nine games without a goal. Manchester United had to play a midweek fixture away to West Ham. This was a tough game that saw the hosts go ahead twice through Ricardo Vaz Tê and Mohamed Diamé.

Comments Manchester City will look to retain the Premier League title after being crowned champions of England, for the first time since , in the most dramatic end to a season in Premier League history. So far Roberto Mancini is yet to dip into the transfer market, and it is uncertain that the Italian who recently signed a five-year deal with the club will make big moves this summer.

City also still own the likes of Emmanuel Adebayor and Roque Santa Cruz, whose wages are proving a stumbling block in moving them on. Robin Van Persie Transfer Whilst a repeat performance of last season from Van Persie would be beneficial to any club in world football , even one with such stars in their side already, his previous seasons at Arsenal are less impressive. In the campaign he started 37 league matches and was a substitute in the other, scoring 30 league goals. In the previous campaign he scored 18 times starting 19 matches, however before that season his highest goal tally in the league was 11 in both the and the seasons, but between and he only managed to start more than twenty games once in the Premiership.

City have already got fiery personalities in Tevez and Balotelli so the addition of Van Persie may unsettle the side that Mancini has just about balanced together to create the title winning success. My advice to Roberto would be to let this one go and look at a more direct replacement for Dzeko, if he goes, and possibly fight it out with Fergie for Lewandowski of Borussia Dortmund.

The philosophy of fuck Dalrymple writes: My brother once worked on a roadbuilding site. Anthony Burgess has the same story, with an army mechanic taking the place of the roadbuilding foreman: Why the most pleasurable activity known to mankind, and the organs by which it is procured, should be debased through the use of the basic, or quadriliteral, terms as expressions of opprobrium has never been adequately explained.

To be called a prick though never a penis , a cunt or a twat is not pleasant. There is perhaps a fundamental puritanism in such usages, a denial of the holiness of sexual pleasure, which, of course, explains the taboo. Words like fuck, cunt, shit, piss are not slang; they are ancient words long buried by a social decorum not so mindlessly repressive as our permissive age seems to think.

Some seem to believe that there was once a sort of golden age in which no figleaf was imposed on language, but squeamishness about these four words, and others with sexual or excretory referents, goes back a long way. Shakespeare undoubtedly knew fuck and probably used it in everyday speech, but the word is not to be found in his plays or poems.

Robert Lewandowski transfer history with Manchester United

Robin van Persie middle Former Manchester United and Arsenal striker Robin van Persie has revealed that he is planning to retire at the end of the season. Having spent 18 years as a professional, with his senior bow made at the age of 17, the Dutch frontman is ready to call it a day. He has graced the very top of the game during a distinguished playing career, with Premier League title and FA Cup success enjoyed in England.

Van Persie also netted 50 goals in appearances for the Netherlands, with those outings taking him to three World Cups and two European Championships.

It may seem peculiar, in a series highlighting greatest individual seasons , to nominate a title-winning Manchester United player. Van Persie was 29 by the time he signed for United. Fifteen trophy-filled seasons later, another raid on north London was prompted by a very different war footing: Manchester City had won the league. When they wooed Van Persie, whose feet were growing itchy in an underachieving Arsenal team, Fergie flew into action.

Fergie paid less than half of that for the man who would win him his final title. By the time Van Persie emerged from the bench, Marouane Fellaini had already scored the winner. More crucially, second-half sub Wayne Rooney suffered a gashed leg which would rule him out for a month. By the time the Scouser returned, the new boy was on five goals in three starts. And these were not grace goals. Frankly, United needed him. Alex Ferguson produced some Manchester United teams whose dominance was almost embarrassing, but this was more of a unit that did just enough.

Factor in his 15 assists, and tangible statistical influence borders on phenomenal.

It was United’s first Premier League opening game defeat since United then returned to Old Trafford where they played against Fulham. The game started with Fulham taking the lead in third minute through a Damien Duff goal, a goal which marked Fulham’s first goal at Old Trafford since United levelled the game seven minutes later through a spectacular volley from Robin van Persie who scored his first goal for United after joining the team a week before.

Van Gaal and Van Persie share a close relationship and were spotted watching a number of football games prior to David Moyes’ sacking. The pair are preparing for the Netherland’s first World Cup warm up game against Ecuador on Saturday as Manchester United await an opportune moment to confirm him as their new manager. Van Persie was awarded the armband for his national side 11 months ago and Kamperman believes their previous history makes the year-old an almost certainty for the armband at Old Trafford.

But after that it went really well and van Persie was very positive about him. So yes he does have a very good relationship with him. The Serbian agreed a two-year deal with Inter Milan earlier this season and has played his last game for the club. Other candidates for the position include Wayne Rooney and Patrice Evra but the latter is also expected to depart in the summer transfer window. Holland will have two days off after the Ecuador game and Van Gaal is expected to travel to Old Trafford to rubberstamp a move.
