Cantona: My proudest moment as Man Utd player

first_img Cantona points to the fact that Ferguson’s side featured academy products and young players such as Ryan Giggs and Paul Ince as the source of his pride. Asked what was his most most iconic moment on The Official Manchester United Podcast, Cantona replied: “Maybe when we won the double with a new generation of players. We won the double with Ince, with Hughes, and then Ferguson because he knew that the young players were great. For the first season we won the double with them. “Of course, it was an unbelievable generation of players. So it’s why it’s something special. It means something special for me and I think for the club also. Because I think it’s important to win things with players coming through the academy. It’s like Barcelona, you are prouder than if you win with the players you buy anywhere.” FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Eric Cantona says his proudest moment as a Manchester United player came in the 1993/94 season.

Pardew sorry for outburst

first_img “It was a heat of the moment thing. We just had words that we always have as managers, to a degree. I have apologised to him and fortunately for myself, he has accepted that.” Pardew’s comments included a particularly offensive four-letter word, and he later admitted Pellegrini’s involvement in the spat did not merit that. He said: “No, I don’t think it merited that word, if I am honest. As I said, I have apologised for that particular word, but we sort of tease each other a little bit and have words.” Pellegrini insisted he did not know what Pardew had said to him, but was untroubled by the exchange, although he did accuse the Newcastle boss of questioning every decision the officials made. He said: “I’m not surprised because I think it is impossible to complain about every decision of the referee during the match. “I know they were playing at home and they have an advantage in that sense, but it’s impossible for the referee if you are complaining at every decision. “That was my only problem with Alan, but nothing important.” The root of Pardew’s complaint was referee Mike Jones’ decision to rule out a 34th-minute Cheick Tiote equaliser for offside against Yoan Gouffran. The 52-year-old aimed an expletive-laden volley at the Chilean during the first half of his side’s controversial 2-0 Barclays Premier League defeat by the new leaders on Sunday afternoon. A contrite Pardew said: “I hear that it’s been picked up a little bit, and I apologise for my comments 100 per cent. Press Association The Frenchman was in an offside position as the Ivory Coast international’s piledriver flew past helpless keeper Joe Hart, although Pardew could not accept Mr Jones’ judgment that he was interfering with play. He said: “I have gone and seen him. I was right behind the shot, as the fourth official was, and it was a clean strike. “It was a great moment for this football club to get a goal like that, so if you are going to chalk it off, you need to make sure that you are getting the point right. “My point was did he think Gouffran was interfering with Joe Hart, and he said, ‘He was in the six-yard box’, and I get that. “The guy was recovering from an offside position, he didn’t want anything to do with the play, but he is not interfering with Joe Hart’s vision. In fact, it goes on the inside of him. “The Man City players are impairing Joe’s vision, not Gouffran. “It’s a real technical matter that he’s talking about here, and to chalk a goal off of that quality, that takes some doing, I think, and it did set the tone for the rest of the game. “I think if you are going to call a guy retreating from an offside position, it has to be pretty clear that he is interfering with the goalkeeper’s view. “The linesman, even though he was on the wrong side, couldn’t have been clear on that, and the referee definitely couldn’t have been clear on that.” However, Pellegrini was confident that the referee, who consulted assistant Stephen Child before making his decision, had got it right. He said: “There was a player offside when the other player kicked the ball. It was offside and was perfectly not valid at all.” City had taken an eighth-minute lead when Edin Dzeko converted Aleksandar Kolarov’s left-wing cross, but they had to wait until the fifth minute of stoppage time at the end of the game for Alvaro Negredo to seal victory with his 19th goal of the season. Pellegrini, whose side leapfrogged Arsenal into first place as a result of their win, said: “It was a very big result because it’s a very difficult stadium to play here. We, Chelsea and Manchester United know how difficult it is to play Newcastle. “They have a direct style with a lot of physical power, and the whole game, they were trying to score with crosses and shooting, and we were very concentrated in defending. “Also, we scored two goals and we had two or three more clear chances to do it.” However, City left Tyneside fearing midfielder Samir Nasri, who was carried from the field on a stretcher after being felled by Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa’s 75th-minute challenge, has suffered a serious knee injury. Pellegrini said: “It’s very serious. It was a very unfair kick and the player of Newcastle, it was directly a red card. I don’t understand why he was not sent off. “It’s his medial ligament. We will see tomorrow how serious it is, but I don’t think it’s a light thing, I think it’s a serious injury.” Newcastle boss Alan Pardew has apologised for a foul-mouthed rant at Manchester City counterpart Manuel Pellegrini.last_img read more

Cable expresses Twickenham concern

first_img Press Association The RFU has confirmed the Blues have made an enquiry about using the 82,000-capacity home of English rugby should they opt to redevelop Stamford Bridge. However, Mr Cable, Liberal Democrat MP for the area and Business Secretary, has revealed he too has contacted the governing body to voice his misgivings. Local MP Vince Cable has expressed his concerns over Chelsea’s possible temporary move to Twickenham. center_img Mr Cable tweeted: “I have written today to RFU about Twickenham Stadium and possible use for a year by Chelsea FC. V serious concerns and need for facts ASAP.” Chelsea announced earlier this summer that they might look to redevelop their stadium, although no timescale has yet been drawn up. The RFU has previously rejected requests from football clubs to play their fixtures at Twickenham with Fulham’s approach in 2001 being rebuffed. The RFU said in a statement: “We are regularly contacted by a variety of organisations, within and outside sport, on a wide range of opportunities concerning use of what we believe is a world-class stadium. “We have had an enquiry from Chelsea FC, but have not had any discussions of any substance. “While we don’t comment on any specific confidential conversations, each request is taken on its merit, assessing a variety of factors, such as the effect on the pitch, availability, transport and local considerations and other important implications.” last_img read more

It’s Safe to Blow out the Candles, Florida Dentist Invents Birthday Cake Shield

first_imgJACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Even though you can’t throw a huge birthday party due to COVID-19, now you can safely blow out the candles on your cake thanks to a Jacksonville dentist who has invented Top It Cake Shield.Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, when large celebrations become popular again, health officials fear it will no longer be safe to blow out the candles on a cake. So, Florida-based prosthetic dentist, Dr. Billy Kay, created a plastic cake-shaped shield to protect the cake icing from being sprayed by germs from the birthday boy or girl’s mouth.Courtesy: Top It Cake ShieldGoing forward it makes sense in general to protect a cake from the potential diseases that were traditionally blown all over the cake in the past.During the pandemic downtime, Kay designed and manufactured the first “Top It Cake Shield,” which has holes cut out for the candles, yet still covers the cake protecting it from saliva and germs.The shields start at $4.99 and come in different sizes. They’re set to launch online Sept. 15.last_img read more
