Liverpool legend slams Jose Mourinho for losing the Man United dressing room

first_img 4 revealed 4 gameday cracker 4 Defeats to Derby County and West Ham United in the space of a week have left the club in free-fall; out of the Carabao Cup and nine points behind Premier League leaders Manchester City already.However, Carragher believes what we are witnessing is nothing new. In fact, Mourinho’s self-destruction in charge of a huge club is merely history repeating itself.Writing in his Sky Sports column, Carragher said: “The last two Manchester United games I’ve seen live, in midweek in the Carabao Cup and what I saw at the weekend against West Ham, the performances were not far away from a disgrace.“What I saw at the weekend, every team will have a game like that this season, maybe two where your character and commitment get questioned. However, it might only happen once or twice a season. We’ve seen this now three or four times in 10 games under Jose Mourinho and that’s the worrying thing.

He was speaking about the players they had at Chelsea and whatever they said, those players – John Terry, Frank Lampard and Didier Drogba – went with. He was saying about the difference in the players now, they think they know it all and they’ve always got an answer. So that’s really Jose speaking as well.

That’s not rocket science, I don’t even think that’s that controversial a thing to say.“The problem with that is it’s now the third time it has happened.

There were four or five people there. The big thing he said he learnt from the Chelsea exit was that you couldn’t single out a player in a meeting in front of the other players because the players do not accept this now.“But it looks as if he has gone back to that or is still doing that at Manchester United. He’s stripped Pogba of the captaincy, which I agreed with, but it sounds like it was in front of the players. The players don’t want that now and that’s why he has lost the dressing room, and it’s not the first time.” With Zinedine Zidane seemingly set to replace him Jamie Carragher believes Jose Mourinho has lost the Manchester United dressing room in the same way he did at Real Madrid and Chelsea.The Portuguese is seemingly on the brink at Old Trafford, with Zinedine Zidane lurking ominously in the shadows.

Other crowd-pleasers focused on humor, like Amazon’s take on celebrity product testers.While the New England Patriots bested the L.A. Rams on Sunday in Atlanta during Super Bowl 53, brands were also winning and losing off the field. Some spots, like Google’s ad about its translation service, charmed many viewers. But others like Mint Mobile’s ad about “chunky milk” fell flat.San Diego Advertising Executive Kathy Cunningham stopped by Good Morning San Diego to discuss the hottest trending Super Bowl ads.BESTAmazonThe Amazon ad was an early crowd pleaser when it was released well ahead of the game. Harrison Ford, Forest Whitaker and other celebrities test out rejected Amazon products that feature its Alexa digital assistant, such as a talking electric toothbrush and a dog collar.Bud LightBud Light’s crossover with Game of Thrones was a hit because it came as such a surprise. What started out as the “Bud Knight” in a jousting tournament morphs into a promo for the next “Game of Thrones” season.“It was somewhat confusing at first,” said Mark DiMassimo, chief of ad agency DiMassimo Goldstein. “But it was super engaging and fun and surprising.”Stella ArtoisTo tout its partnership with, which helps provide clean water to the developing world, the beer maker shows two 1990s icons giving up their signature drinks for a philanthropy-supporting brew. “The Dude” — a Jeff Bridges character from “The Big Lebowski” —forgoes his White Russian, while Sarah Jessica Parker’s Carrie Bradshaw from “Sex and the City” eschews her cosmopolitan. The 1990s nostalgia was a hit with viewers.HuluHulu kicked off the evening’s surprises during the first break with an ad that started out like Ronald Reagan’s 1984 campaign ad “Morning in America.” But it was soon revealed to be a teaser for the next season of “The Handmaid’s Tale.” ”Wake up America, morning’s over,” a voiceover stated.“It was a great misdirect and great placement,” DiMassimo said.GoogleAn ad promoting its Google Translate service pointed out that although “words can hurt and sometimes divide,” the most translated words in the world are “How are you,” ”Thank you” and “I love you.”Kim Whitler, marketing professor at the University of Virginia, said the ad was an example of how the night’s “most powerful ads focused on unity, positivity and commonality.”MicrosoftAnother heart-tugger was Microsoft’s ad showing a disabled child talking excitedly about the fun he had using an adaptive Xbox controller designed for players with mobility limitations.“It combined true emotion, great storytelling, and relevant product innovation with an insight about their category (gaming) as a great equalizer,” DiMassimo said.WORSTMint MobileThe wireless provider was trying to stand out from larger rivals Verizon, T-Mobile and Sprint. But the “gross-out” route may not have been the way to do it.The ad compares Mint Mobile’s $20-a-month wireless plan with “chunky milk,” then it shows a fake ad with a family drinking the unappetizing beverage. A mint-colored cartoon fox says the milk is “not right,” but Mint Mobile’s plan “is right.”“The ad could be confusing. People might just remember that Mint’s pricing is ‘not right,’” said Northwestern University marketing professor Tim Calkins.Turkish AirlinesTurkish Airlines created a trailer for a six-minute short directed by Ridley Scott, known for directing Apple’s iconic “1984” ad. It was the storied director’s first return to the Super Bowl in decades. But some viewers took to Twitter to express confusion over what exactly the ad was trying to promote.

Dhakas traffic jam causes Tk 370b annual loss

first_img.Spending hours in tailback, commuters in Dhaka city suffer from a variety of diseases caused by pressure of traffic congestion on human mind.This was observed at a roundtable on ‘Dhaka city’s traffic jam: Financial and health problems’ on Saturday.It was that the city’s traffic congestion eats up 5 million man hours every day.Research findings presented there show, the average speed of vehicles in the capital city has slowed down to only 5 kilometres per hour now from 21 kilometres per hour only 12 years ago.In a variety of research, the annual loss due to traffic jam is estimated between Tk 200 billion and Tk 370 billion and the average loss stands at Tk 370 billion a year, the roundtable was told.Experts said in view of deteriorating traffic situation in the city day by day, financial loss would increase in the coming days.Accident Research Institute (ARI) of Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (BUET) and Road Safety Foundation jointly organised the programme in the city.ARI director professor Md Moazzem Hossain, presenting the keynote, urged the authorities concerned to take immediate steps to improve the traffic system.Citing research findings, he pointed out that had the required measures been taken to improve the city’s traffic situation, an amount of Tk 220 billion could have been saved every year.“If the city’s traffic situation does not improve, the average speed of vehicles will come further down to 4 kilometers an hour — even less than average walking speed — by the year 2025,” Moazzem added.He blamed narrow roads, illegal parking, occupation of footpaths and frequent diggings of roads for the traffic congestion.Former director of National Institute of Traumatology and Orthopaedic Rehabilitaion (NITOR) professor Muhammad Siraj ul Islam said traffic jam puts negative impact on mental health that may ultimately lead to social instability.Farah Deeba, associate professor of Dhaka University’s Clinical Psychology department, said traffic jam impacts on the family life and social relations as it creates severe mental stress.Deputy director of Fire Service and Civil Defence Debashish Bardhan said a total of 2,500 lives were lost in fire incidents in the Dhaka division alone last year. “The number would have been much lower, had there been no traffic jam,” he added.The experts recommended increase in public transport, expansion of railway network, lessening the number of personal cars and decentralisation of Dhaka city to curb the traffic congestion.Professor Sarwar Jahan of BUET’s Urban and Regional Planning department, suggested modernisation and expansion of public bus service for addressing the traffic problem.Chairman of Road Safety Foundation and professor of DU’s Sociology department AI Mahbub Uddin Ahmed presided over the session.last_img read more
