OLE GUNNAR SOLSKJAER is under increasing pressure at Manchester United – with Mauricio Pochettino waiting in the wings to replace him.SunSport revealed the under-fire Old Trafford boss told his players he will be sacked if they lose to Tottenham and City in their next two games.3 How Man Utd could line up under Pochettino with Kane, Eriksen and AlderweireldPoch, 47, has long been linked with a United takeover and after his shock sacking at Spurs the Argentine is the clear favourite to succeed struggling Solskjaer.He would inherit a squad that has stuck with a consistent backline this season with keeper David De Gea, and the centre back pairing of Harry Maguire and Victor Lindelof.Aaron Wan-Bissaka has nailed down the right-back spot while 19-year-old Brandon Williams has emerged as the first-choice left back.Before United splashed out a record £80m on ex-Leicester defender Maguire, they were linked with Spurs contract rebel Alderweireld – who has not extended his deal that expires in the summer.If he were to take over, Poch could opt to pair the Belgian with Maguire or have him as competition for Lindelof – all while not paying a penny for the 30-year-old soon-to-be free agent.United’s lack of creativity in midfield has continued to be a sticking point for Solskjaer this season, despite consistency from Scott McTominay.Old Trafford bosses were put off spending £60m on Sporting Lisbon midfielder Bruno Fernandes this summer, a scoring talent Poch desperately tried to sign at Tottenham.3If the Argentine manager is to get his way, he could force United chiefs to pay whatever it takes to recruit Fernandes, and partner him with playmaker Paul Pogba.They could be helped out in the transfer race with new Spurs boss Mourinho confirming they are not interested in Fernandes – with Dele Alli on form under his new manager.Potentially following Alderweireld out the door next summer is attacking midfielder Christian Eriksen, who failed to secure a move away from North London this summer.The Dane’s heart appears to be set on Real Madrid but Poch could tempt him to remain in England as part of a new look United side.Another major issue for Solskjaer has been a lack of consistency with his attacking line.Selling Romelu Lukaku to Inter Milan this summer – along with Alexis Sanchez – and not signing a replacement has cost the United boss.Winger Daniel James, who arrived from Swansea for £15m has been a bright spark on the right wing.But Marcus Rashford has been forced to constantly switch from out wide to down the middle throughout the campaign, and forward Anthony Martial has only five goals.3Solskjaer tells Man United stars he WILL be sacked if they lose to Spurs and Man City as Pochettino waits in wingsManchester United news ODS ON?Ighalo to leave Man Utd TOMORROW unless dramatic extension can be reachedDEVIL’S ADVOCATEEx-Man Utd star Chadwick dreaded being picked for Keane’s team in trainingPicturedTRAINING DAYFernandes back in his Mini while Pogba arrives for training in yellow FerrariMARCSMANWatch Rashford floor Man Utd team-mates with ‘naughty’ bit of skill in trainingGossip’DEAD’ PAULPogba’s proposed £15m-a-year Real transfer risks wage row after virus pay cutOD TO JOYMan Utd ‘very close’ to extending Ighalo deal says agent in dramatic U-turnLive BlogUTD LATESTMan Utd news LIVE: All the latest updates and gossip from Old TraffordLive BlogUNITED LATESTMan Utd news LIVE: All the latest updates and transfer news from Old TraffordThe solution, how possible it is or not, would be to go for Spurs hitman and serial scorer Harry Kane.It would come at quite a cost, but club legend Roy Keane was adamant all United’s problems would end if they would be able to persuade the England skipper to make the risky switch to Old Trafford.Kane scored 171 goals under Poch during their five seasons together, and the striker could be top of his transfer list, wherever he goes next.

Third bottom Cardiff are four points behind Brighton with only one game remaining, ensuring they will join already relegated Huddersfield and Fulham in the second tier next season.The Bluebirds will make an immediate return to the Championship after last season’s promotion, their fate sealed by a dismal run of nine defeats in their last 11 league games.It won’t be a season fondly remembered by Cardiff, with their relegation coming after the tragic death of striker Emiliano Sala, who died in a plane crash en route to Wales before he had even played a game for the club.“They’ve tried hard. We’ve shown limitations today and that’s why we are where we are,” Warnock said.“But the club’s arrived again now. It’s alive and kicking and that’s the main thing. When we first came here it was almost gone.“I’m really proud of what we’ve done. It could have been a little bit closer, but things were out of hand.”Warnock’s name was chanted by Cardiff fans despite the loss, but it remains to be seen if the 70-year-old returns for the Championship promotion bid next term.In a painful twist, Cardiff were pushed towards relegation by Palace winger Wilfried Zaha, who spent time on loan with Cardiff when they last dropped out of the Premier League in 2014.The Ivory Coast international, booed by Cardiff fans, gave an influential display on his return to south Wales and fired Palace in front from the edge of the area in the 28th minute.Martin Kelly gifted Cardiff a lifeline three minutes later when the Palace defender tried to cut out Leandro Bacuna’s cross but instead diverted the ball into his own net when he could have left it for goalkeeper Vicente Guaita to collect.Kelly’s blunder did little to ease Cardiff’s obvious anxiety and on-loan Chelsea striker Michy Batshuayi restored Palace’s lead when he punished sloppy marking with a clinical close-range finish in the 40th minute.Andros Townsend effectively confirmed Cardiff’s relegation in the 70th minute with a low drive that went in via the woodwork and Bobby Reid’s 90th minute curler was no consolation for the beleaguered hosts.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Cardiff were relegated from the Premier League after losing to Crystal Palace © AFP / GEOFF CADDICKCardiff, United Kingdom, May 4 – Cardiff City have been relegated from the Premier League after slumping to a 3-2 defeat against Crystal Palace on Saturday.Neil Warnock’s side needed a win to have a realistic chance of beating the drop on the last day of the season, but they were out-classed by Palace at the Cardiff City Stadium.

Ireland Women are just one win away from a maiden RBS 6 Nations Grand Slam after Ailis Egan’s second-half try earned them a narrow 15-10 victory over France – with Donegal’s Nora Stapleton and Larissa Muldoon playing their part in the historic win.Trailing 10-5 at half-time, Ireland roared back with Egan burrowing over to add to Niamh Briggs’ first-half score – the full-back slotting the conversion and adding a late penalty.In following up victories over Wales, England and then Scotland, Ireland clinched just a second ever win over France – the first coming in 2009 – meaning only Italy stand between them and the Grand Slam. France, who had designs on leapfrogging Ireland in the table at Ashbourne, having won their last two fixtures, began the brighter and took the lead when fly-half Sandrine Agricole knocked over a penalty in the first ten minutes but Briggs wasted little time in putting her side ahead.A fine move saw No.8 Joy Neville find Briggs, who sped through the gap and dotted down on the right-hand side, before dragging her conversion just wide.The lead did not last long however and France hooker Gaëlle Mignot grabbed her side’s only try of the night soon after, Agricole again on target with a fine kick from the right, handing les Bleues a 10-5 lead.Ireland did their best to respond and had Ashleigh Baxter’s inside pass not gone forward, centre Lynn Cantwell would surely have raced clear. France led by five at the break but Ireland came roaring out of the blocks in the second period and after some fine rucking at close quarters, Egan forced her way over – Briggs adding the extras to put Ireland ahead again.That prompted wave after wave of attacks from the hosts but some resolute defending and handling errors from Ireland kept the French within two points.When the visitors finally started to enjoy some territory, a fluffed drop goal attempt was the best they could muster and when Briggs was on target with a late penalty, just after one had hit the post, Ireland led by five and successfully ran down the clock.They will now head to Milan looking to clinch the Grand Slam on St Patrick’s Day and they will be crowned champions on Sunday if Italy fail to beat England.Should Italy down the seven-time defending champions, both sides would be in with a chance of lifting the crown next Sunday. 15 Niamh Briggs14 Ashleigh Baxter13 Lynne Cantwell12 Jenny Murphy11 Alison Miller10 Nora Stapleton9 Larissa Muldoon1 Fiona Coghlan2 Gillian Bourke3 Ailis Egan4 Sophie Spence5 Marie Louise Reilly6 Siobhan Fleming7 Claire Molloy8 Joy NevilleReplacements:16 Stacey-Lea Kennedy17 Fiona Hayes18 Lauren Day19 Leigh Dargan20 Laura Guest21 Amy Davis22 Grace Davitt23 Niamh KavanaghDONEGAL GIRLS HELP IRELAND TO STUNNING RBS 6 NATIONS VICTORY OVER FRANCE was last modified: March 9th, 2013 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:DONEGAL GIRLS HELP IRELAND TO STUNNING RBS 6 NATIONS VICTORY OVER FRANCE

I’m a football lad.“I will go in on Friday and the first thing I will do is ask for some game-time on Saturday, hopefully to get the chance to play against Wolves the following week. I know myself that I will be more than ready so I can’t wait.”Marco Silva replaces Sam Allardyce in the dugout heading into the new campaign and, after a false dawn last season following a summer of hefty spending, Pickford believes the signings of Richarlison and Lucas Digne can help Everton get it right this time around.“Yes, I think it is a massive club and the club is only going in the right direction,” he said when asked if the new signings were a signal of intent.“We want to do better. We finished eighth last season and so we want to get better than seventh, get into the top six.“The Premier League is a hard league and it is hard to get a win in any game, but we want to please the fans and make the fans happy and the way to do that is win games.”Pickford struggled to put his finger on where things went wrong last season, with Ronald Koeman losing his job in October as the team struggled to provide results.“I felt it was a weird one because a big change is either going to work or is not going to work straightaway and needs time,” he said.“The form at the back-end of the season was very good and I think we were a top-six side. It takes a bit of time to bed in and get used to each other but hopefully this season it is going to be a lot better.” How Everton could look in January under Ancelotti with new signings Jordan Pickford was speaking at the launch of McDonald’s UK’s new football sponsorship programme which will provide over five million hours of fun football for children across the UK by 2022.

A NEW wind turbine has been successfully removed from the lorry which overturned this morning when taking it to the wind farm to replace an older one which was destroyed by high winds several months ago. The road between Maas and Ardara was closed as a result of the incident which happened earlier this morning. The new €1M turbine is now on site and will replace one which fell over during a storm in May.Two cranes and several lorries spent two days on the windfarm at Loughderryduff, near Mass, Portnoo, as the 245-ft turbine was broken down before being transported to Derry.The turbine, which has a lifespan of around 25 years, fell just four years after being erected in the eight-unit development.
