HE’S yours for £32million, Ed.Mauricio Pochettino, the world’s most wanted boss when he led Tottenham to the Champions League final 119 days ago, comes with a hefty price-tag.5 Manchester United should go for Mauricio Pochettino – but it would cost them £32mCredit: GettyBut look at it another way — it is £14m cheaper than midfielder Fred, a complete flop since he arrived 15 months ago and a standout example of Manchester United’s malaise.United, who first courted Poch when they fired Louis van Gaal in May 2016 and again just days before Jose Mourinho was sent packing last December, are likely to try again at some point.Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who squeezed past League One Rochdale on penalties in the Carabao Cup on Wednesday, is feeling the strain.The job of reviving United, of fighting it out for football’s big prizes, is beyond him, despite what club chief Ed Woodward claims in public.5POCH’S TORTUOUS WEEKEvery result is forensically analysed, with poor performances against Dale, West Ham and Astana in their last three games adding to the unease around the place. Arsenal, at home on Monday, is a biggie.By then the future of Pochettino will be clearer because he will be judged by Spurs fans during their home game against Southampton.It feels like he needs to win, and to win well, after another tortuous week.After the Carabao Cup shootout defeat against Colchester United on Tuesday, he admitted to cracks inside the first-team dressing room.Danny Rose, Toby Alderweireld, Jan Vertonghen, Kyle Walker-Peters, Eric Dier, Lucas Moura, Dele Alli and Christian Eriksen have all had beefs with the world’s most wanted.CHAMPIONS LEAGUE FALLOUTYesterday, when he adopted a sunnier disposition, Poch maintained he is the man to put things right.Spurs, who have faith in their highly-regarded head coach to start winning again, can cope with one sticky run.The problem is whether Poch is really in for the next cycle, with the widely- accepted White Hart Lane view that another squad overhaul is due.After five years during which he has overseen a change of personnel, added noughts to the valuations of some ordinary footballers, ushered them into their sparkly new stadium and led them to a European Cup final, he is entitled to think about his future.He was upset by the celebrations at the post-Champions League final banquet, when Spurs top brass drank and sang and toasted their success until the early hours.5The failure to win, to beat Liverpool in Madrid that night, hurt Poch more than he has ever let on.It was the culmination of five years’ hard graft and the Argentinian was desperate to have something to show for it by landing the biggest prize in European club football.That abridged version of his spell in North London would wipe out most people.In the summer, when Max Allegri announced a year-long sabbatical, Poch was known to covet the Juventus job.The Agnelli family turned to Maurizio Sarri, with his £5m buyout clause at Chelsea making it more appealing.Poch is an expensive acquisition.SPURS-UNITED BAD RELATIONSWhen he signed a new five-year deal at the start of last season, he did so without inserting any exit clauses into his contract.It means the cream of Europe — Juventus, Real Madrid, Barcelona, United — would have to pay up his contract, which has three years and nine months to run, in full.Poch earns around £8.5m a year, but there is no chance of getting him on the cheap.For United to poach a rival Premier League manager, it would be a complicated process.There is discord between Spurs and United, a fractious relationship between the top brass after years of rancour over player sales.Teddy Sheringham, Michael Carrick and Dimitar Berbatov all forced Daniel Levy’s hand to make the move to Old Trafford happen. It has not been forgotten.Spurs chairman Levy, who has turned down an official approach from Real Madrid and an unofficial move by Chelsea for his manager, does not want to let him go.PRESSURE BUILDS ON OLEThe problem is Poch and his failure to unequivocally pass on the message to his employer and his players that he is staying.Nobody can say for certain.The firm view at Old Trafford, based on soundings taken in the game, is that Pochettino wants away.If that is correct, he could do with a break first.This job is chaotic, with the pressures and the demands on the top managers turning them into emotional wrecks.He needs a period of introspection, some time to recover as he comes to terms with the first serious wobble of his Spurs career.Solskjaer has different pressures, with United’s 659million worldwide fanbase all seeming to have their say on social media.It makes grim reading for him.They want the winning feeling again, longing for those giddy days when they could turn up and expect to see their boys triumph.It is stodgy stuff, with United’s players struggling to adapt to Solskjaer’s methods.latest Manchester United newsLive Blogunited newsMan Utd news LIVE – Latest updates from Old TraffordMAN DOWNUtd and City face TWO-WEEK summer if they reach Euro finals before new Prem seasonDEPAY CHARTMan Utd flop Memphis used computer data and analytics to quit Old TraffordODS ON?Ighalo to leave Man Utd TOMORROW unless dramatic extension can be reachedPEA SHOOTERHernandez: Man Utd ‘still haunted’ by ‘mistake’ of Moyes replacing FergusonDEVIL’S ADVOCATEEx-Man Utd star Chadwick dreaded being picked for Keane’s team in training5He has boardroom backing, but the possibility of taking Pochettino to the Theatre of Dreams will always be a temptation.To make it happen, it will cost them £32m.For United, it’d be worth every penny.5 Ole Gunnar Solksjaer is facing a big struggle at Manchester UnitedCredit: Getty

Garcia did not have a concealed weapons permit to carry the handgun, which was loaded. Garcia was ineligible for the permit because he had been convicted of several misdemeanor offenses. Before running from police, Garcia dropped several plastic grocery bags containing mostly personal effects like clothing and shoes, police Lt. John Evans said. Freire said investigators hoped a more thorough search of those plastic bags would lead to information on a possible motive for Garcia to run. “We’re hoping that conversations with friends, family and associates will shed some light onto why he was armed,” Frerie said. Police would not verify Monday that a drug deal was taking place at the time of the shooting. They declined to say whether Garcia was in possession of drugs or large amounts of cash. firstname.lastname@example.org (909) 483-8553 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

ONTARIO – An Ontario police officer shot and killed a 23-year-old Whittier man late Sunday after police said he brandished a handgun during a foot chase and aimed it toward the officer. Christopher Michael Garcia was shot once in the chest and was pronounced dead by paramedics at the scene. Police received a tip at 10:15p.m. that a drug deal was taking place outside a convenience store at the southwest corner of Fourth Street and Mountain Avenue. Officers arrived shortly after 11 p.m. They approached Garcia because he matched the description provided by the caller of one of the men involved in the reported drug deal. When Garcia saw the officer, he ran west away from police along Fourth Street, police said. The officer chased him, and during the chase Garcia pulled a chrome semi-automatic handgun from his waistband, police said. The officer “felt he was going to be fired upon,” Ontario police Detective Robert Freire said. The officer fired one shot at Garcia, striking him in the chest. Garcia immediately collapsed on the sidewalk. Police did not identify by name the officer who shot Garcia. Police said the officer is a corporal who has worked for the department for 11 years. The officer was placed on administrative leave, a routine practice in officer-involved shootings. Garcia’s death marks the first officer-involved shooting in Ontario since July, which was the only officer-involved shooting in 2006, Freire said. There were two officer-involved shootings in 2005. Police said they are unsure why Garcia ran when confronted. There were no warrants out for his arrest.

By Scott Wolf Staff Writer As expected, quarterback John David Booty will start for USC against Oregon State. “He’s ready to play,” Coach Pete Carroll said. “I hope a couple weeks off haven’t thrown him out of kilter.” Although many USC fans yearn for the days when offensive coordinator Norm Chow called the plays, Carroll said his original choice for the job was California coach Jeff Tedford. Carroll said he contacted Tedford after getting hired at USC, but was turned down. “Then he went to Cal,” Carroll said. When Teford passed on the job, Carroll immediately turned to Chow, who went on to stay at USC for four memorable seasons. Carroll said he called Chow the first day he was hired at USC. Cornerback U.? USC is ranked 96th in the nation in interceptions, a statistic that rankles the Trojans and especially Carroll, who originally wanted his defenses to be known as Cornerback U. Safety Taylor Mays said he the Trojans’ zone coverages don’t really allow for a lot of interception opportunities. “I haven’t seen a lot of plays where I could say I should have had the ball,” Mays said. “We can’t go out of our way to make these plays.” Baker out Carroll said offensive tackle Sam Baker would not play against Oregon State. Baker would not rule out playing, but Carroll said he did not think it would happen. Freshman Butch Lewis will start again at left tackle. Offensive guard Chilo Rachal did not practice because of a tightness in a calf. Rachal is expected to play. “The trainers were worried about it and wanted to give him an extra day to rest,” Carroll said. Upon further review Carroll spoke with Pacific-10 Conference supervisor of officials David Cutaia again Thursday about the lack of penalties called against USC’s opponents, but once again there was no consensus on the reason. Carroll said he would understand if it were a one-year phenomenon but said it’s happened the past four seasons. Cutaia officiated last year’s USC-Arizona game when the Wildcats committed more penalties than the Trojans. email@example.comWant local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

A DONEGAL campaigner against austerity measures has warned that the Government is about to launch a crackdown on unpaid Household Charges – and introduce new charges in coming weeks.Owen Curran, from the Cloich Cheann Fhaola Can’t Pay Won’t Pay group said septic tank taxes and new household rates will be announced soon.And he has called on the people of Donegal to stand firm in the face of warning letters which, he says, will be sent out over the summer from the Local Government Managers Association. “With the Fiscal Treaty Referendum now behind the Government, ordinary people can expect them to get back to the business of imposing unjust taxes and cuts. Amongst other issues, this means a new launch date for registration of septic tanks, which, according to a government spokesperson is expected to be in mid-June,” said Mr Curran.He said the head of the L.G.M.A has also threatened that ”enforcement” letters will be issued in mid-July against the majority of households boycotting the tax. More than 65% of people in Co Donegal have still not paid that charge.Mr Curran went on: “The government also intend to publish a report on the property tax. The report has no date for it’s publication, except that it would be ”possibly before the recess.”“It is also obvious that the government has no serious plans to tackle un-employment, the biggest social, political and economic crisis we are currently facing. “We call on all citizens concerned about the effects that these unjust taxes will have on themselves and on our local economies, and the lack of effort by the government to tackle the unemployment crisis, to get involved in the campaign against the household, water and septic tank taxes in any way they can. Only by boycotting these taxes and fighting for policies that will enable our economy to grow can we hope to emerge from this economic depression in the years ahead.”The campaigner added: “The future of our society is too important to leave in the hands of failed politicans and bankers, professional wafflers and wannabe politicans who see this crisis as their opportunity. Only by citizens becoming fully involved in political and social affairs can we ever hope to have a hand in shaping our destiny. It is up to us.”DONEGAL CAMPAIGNER WARNS: GOVERNMENT TO LAUNCH CRACKDOWN ON UNPAID CHARGES was last modified: June 5th, 2012 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 CAMPAIGNER WARNS: GOVERNMENT TO LAUNCH CRACKDOWN ON UNPAID CHARGESYOUR LETTERS: GOVERNMENT CRACKDOWN ON UNPAID CHARGES
