Gary Neville reveals the formation and team Sir Alex Ferguson would pick to end Manchester United malaise

The Red Devils have been on a very disappointing run of form recently (Picture: Getty)Gary Neville believes Sir Alex Ferguson would play two up top and a narrow, combative midfield in order to arrest Manchester United’s current poor run of form. The Red Devils lost to Young Boys in the Champions League, exited the Carabao Cup against West Ham and have now picked up just one point from a possible nine in Premier League matches against Aston Villa, Everton and Leicester City – two of which were at Old Trafford. Their poor form continued at the King Power Stadium as they lost 4-2, ramping up the pressure on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, with his line-up – and the balance of the side – called into question. United gave another lacklustre performance against Leicester (Picture: Getty)Neville

Lorne Buchman’s ‘Make to Know’ shows the way that we work

Lorne Buchman later in his artistic and academic careers went on to take a doctorate in theater at Stanford and to chair the Theater Department at Cal. But as every Nobel-winning poet has to scribble a first line, every director has to stage his first scene. And as an undergrad at the University of Toronto for whom the play was the thing but who’d discovered he wasn’t really an actor, the time came when Buchman discovered that his favorite literature professor, Francis “Martineau also taught a course in directing for the  theater, and he had a very specific approach to that course. There was no theoretical preparation. His attitude was simply this: If you want to direct, jump in and direct something. It’s the only way to learn it, to know it, and to understand what questions to ask as you

Mohamed Salah’s agent jets into Liverpool for talks over new £500,000-a-week deal

Mohamed Salah is out of contract in 2023 (Photo by John Powell/Liverpool FC via Getty Images)Mohamed Salah’s agent has jetted into Liverpool with talks over the club over a new £500,000-a-deal for the Egyptian winger. The 29-year-old has just over 18 months to run on his existing deal at Anfield and talks over a new deal have progressed slowly, despite both sides intimating that they’d like to agree on an extension. Salah had previously suggested he’d be open to a move to Spain but the financial climate has closed off that opportunity and he’s now keen to stay on Merseyside. He is, however, keen to extract a record-breaking contract from the Reds to reflect his performance level and the Mirror say his agent was in the UK on Saturday to hold discussions with the club over a new...

Newcastle United set for surprisingly small January transfer budget

Steve Bruce will hope to still be in charge of Newcastle in January (Picture: Getty Images)Newcastle United do not intend on spending vast amounts of money in January, with a transfer budget of just £50m planned for the next transfer window. The Magpies have new ownership, and a huge amount of cash has come with the takeover, led by the Saudi Arabian Public Investment Fund. Fans are expecting a complete overhaul of the playing squad in the coming months, but it will not happen in January, with no more than two or three players likely to arrive. The Daily Telegraph report that a budget of just £50m is being planned for the January window, which does not equate to many players at all with the Magpies looking to transform into a team that competes near the top of the Premier League...

Fremont to raise fees for developers who don’t build affordable homes

FREMONT — In a bid to encourage developers to build more affordable housing, the Fremont City Council has launched a two-prong approach that will dig deeper into the pocketbooks of those who don’t and give some breaks to those who do. By increasing the fees that go into a special account reserved for eligible affordable housing projects, the council is hoping developers will choose to skip the payments and instead build the units themselves. Otherwise, the developers will see their affordable housing in-lieu fees rise from $26 per square foot for houses and $27 for townhouses to $44 per square foot for both, starting on Jan. 1, 2024. And the fees would have been even higher if two council members got their way. At last week’s council meeting, Vice Mayor Yang Shao and Councilmember Jenny Ka

This Home Storage Organizing System Also Fits in Your Car’s Trunk

Photo: GOAT Boxco.Scouting Report: This storage organizing unit goes from the house to your trunk. I’ll admit it, I have way too much stuff. I try to only buy what I'll actually use regularly but, apparently, there’s a LOT of things I actively use.

In quiet debut, Alzheimer’s drug finds questions, skepticism

The first new Alzheimer’s treatment in more than 20 years was hailed as a breakthrough when regulators approved it more than four months ago, but its rollout has been slowed by questions about its price and how well it works. Several major medical centers remain undecided on whether to use Biogen’s Aduhelm, which is recommended for early stages of the disease. Big names like the Cleveland Clinic and Mass General Brigham in Boston say they’ll pass on it for now. One neurology practice has even banned the company's sales reps from its offices, citing concerns about the drug and its price, which can climb past $50,000 annually. Many doctors say they need to learn more about how Aduhelm works and what will be covered before they decide whether to offer it. That might take several months to so

Escaped controlled burn in Santa Cruz Mountains was on retired fire chief’s property

In a career as a firefighter that spanned 32 years, Greg Estrada worked to put out dozens of wildfires across California. On Friday, the retired Cal Fire battalion chief battled one on his own property, when a controlled burn by Cal Fire on his family’s ranch to reduce fire risk in the Santa Cruz Mountains jumped containment lines. “We wanted to do right,” he said late Saturday. “My family has been here since the 1800s. We feel as though we’re good stewards of the land. The overall goal was to improve the environment.” Even though more than a dozen Cal Fire firefighters were supervising the burn, sudden gusts of wind sent embers over their lines. Estrada and his son Zach, who had been watching the operation, tried to help put out the flames with water and hand tools. “We were putting out s
