Having a lazy day and watching two matches on this Super Sunday...

happens to fall on Easter Sunday as it always has.

Thought that you GRACE in particular would appreciate this.

Two young teenagers from the slums of India, as portrayed in
Slumdog Millionaire, are being brought to Old Trafford, M/C
to be trained to play for Manchester United. The 16 yr old is
the son of a former sex worker who was able to send him to school
on the proceeds of her job, she is now employed at a pittance in
a factory, the other boy's mother is scraping a living with a roadside
stall. So things will turn around for these parents considering the
salary the boys will receive in the future.

A feelgood story this Easter Sunday.

I expect it was inevitable.....feel dreadfully sorry for this man, David Moyes.
He has been sacked this morning.
Here is an excerpt from 'The Telegraph' about his treating the squad to a
vacation in Australia in order to get to know each other.

"Having left behind the frenzy of Bangkok on the first-leg of United's summer tour, Moyes had decided to take his squad on an impromptu trip to Bondi - a stroll around the beach to stretch the players' legs after training.

On a similar summer trip to Sydney with Everton, Moyes had taken players on the same bonding session and it passed without incident.

But this was United, and while an Everton squad containing Australia international Tim Cahill went unnoticed in their club tracksuits among the surfers and sandcastles, Moyes's new team were mobbed and besieged by supporters to the extent that the manager had to hide his players in the rooftop bar of a nightclub until security arrived to restore order.

It was akin to a supply teacher taking a group of unruly sixth formers on a day out, with the leader's authority undermined from the outset.

United's security staff and local police usually work in tandem when such trips are planned, but Moyes was unaware of this and a tour which had already made him uncomfortable due to the demands of sponsors and supporters alike had just delivered a stark example of the monster he now managed.

Moyes failed to heed the lesson of Bondi, however, and as his disastrous reign progressed, he somehow walked into every pitfall that lay in his path.

Initially, Moyes was too reverential, too awestruck by his new surroundings, allowing himself to be caught on a microphone saying "wow" as a five-minute montage of United's glorious history was played to an audience at a 250-a-head dinner at Sydney's Westin Hotel.

Moyes also hinted at inner doubts about his suitability for the job, even claiming to being fearful of what he had taken on.

"I tell you, there's not one person who would turn around and say:'Taking over Manchester United, you think you can walk in there and breeze in and think you can do it easily?' Moyes said in Sydney. "Of course not. There has to be an element of fear that comes with managing a club like Manchester United.

"You would have doubt if anybody took over this job, but in my own way, I've got to say I feel it's the right job for me at the right time and hopefully I'll make it work."

Interesting.

'Morning Grace,

we touched on the supermarkets earlier, and I mentioned some time ago that the NHS
in the UK was in dire straits. I think this might hjave been confirmed this week, when
the Shadow Health Secretary commented that 'something's wrong when patients
are advised to go to the ASDA pharmacy in an emergency rather than A & E".!!!!!!!
Trust me, I don't make these claims up.

Very interesting El.

if only that were the case Sir Tally...but half the team are being replaced also.
Anyway, c'est la vie and all that. Like you say, business is business. He will
walk away with five million...okay his reputation has gone.
Thinking more on it and putting aside sentiment, he has asked for it and the
team have suffered due to his mistakes.
Hope your weather has picked up, have a great day.

Mike Woodson had the Knicks on top of their division and in the second round of the playoffs, destinations that had become unreachable and practically unimaginable in New York.

A year later, he was out of job.

Phil Jackson fired Woodson and the entire coaching staff on Monday, making his first big move since becoming team president in March and saying in a statement that ''the time has come for change throughout the franchise.
