Rashford then sealed the points 10 minutes from time, producing a composed finish after good link-up play from Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez.Solskjaer has already managed to restore the feel-good factor at the club and he admitted post-match that he doesn’t want to depart at the end of his projected six-month spell at the helm.When asked if he will leave United in May, Solskjaer replied: “I don’t want to.”He went on to address matching Busby’s record, before bemoaning a ‘sluggish’ first-half display from his team. “I’m just thinking about the next game because if you win four you can win another four with this club,” he told Sky Sports. “That’s the challenge, that’s the standard we’re used to.””It was a very professional performance. We never hit the heights that we can do but I felt we were in control, kept plugging away,””It was a great goal again by Marcus and a great reaction again by Rom – good first touch as a sub.”In the first half it was sluggish, it was almost like a testimonial at times – too slow, too many touches and too many square passes and back”But the big, big plus was the clean sheet.”4 – Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is only the second manager in Manchester United history to win his first four league games in charge of the club, after Matt Busby in 1946.

It gives me options.”Newcastle boss Rafael Benitez can only dream of such riches in attack after his team drew a blank for the third time in four matches.”We know that the final third is the key,” he told Sky Sports. “When you pay big money for players, normally you are talking about offensive players who make the difference.”You have to give credit to our players because for 80 minutes they were in the game.” Check out Goal’s Premier League 2019-20 fantasy football podcast for game tips, debate and rivalries.last_img read more

Investing in Tall Ships Nova Scotia Festival 2007

The best party of the summer concludes today, July 16, with the Tall Ships 2007 Parade of Sail in Halifax Harbour. About 600,000 people picked their way through 25 Tall Ships. Financial help for the festival was provided by the province and Halifax Regional Municipality. The provincial government has contributed $600,000 in cash and in-kind services to ensure that all Nova Scotians share the economic benefit across the province. “With a track record for economic impact of about $20 generated for every $1 dollar invested, Tall Ships events in this region continue to be a leading tourism and economic development generator,” said Premier Rodney MacDonald. The Tall Ships Nova Scotia Festival began in Halifax on Thursday, July 12. Today, July 16, the ships head south to Lunenburg, Shelburne and Yarmouth, while other ships head north to Port Hawkesbury, Louisbourg and Sydney, and to Pictou. For Halifax Regional Municipality, the event continues to build on the momentum of nearly a quarter of a century of hosting modern-day Tall Ships gatherings in the Halifax Harbour. HRM contributed $300,000 to host the Halifax Harbour event July 12-16. “Halifax Harbour is well-known as one of the deepest and most serviceable harbours in the world,” said HRM Mayor Peter Kelly. “Our waterfront is an exceptional platform to showcase this large fleet of amazing tall ships as well as the thousands of people who admire them.” The budget for the Tall Ships Nova Scotia festival is about $3.3 million, which includes attracting ships to each of the eight ports, host fees, entertainment and administration. “Tall Ships is an amazing event and we’re proud to host it, here in Nova Scotia, said Eric Thomson, chair, Waterfront Development Corporation Ltd. board of directors and chair, Tall Ships executive committee. “We’re very pleased that three levels of government have provided cash and in-kind support to attract the largest gathering of Tall Ships in North America this year, it will be a great event for our province.” Cumulative corporate sponsorship support totals $976,000 and an additional $1,011,000 will be raised through earned income on ticket sales, vending and merchandise. Tall Ships Organizers expect more than 600,000 visitors will come to Tall Ships Nova Scotia Festival 2007 at venues across the province. On-line ticket sales and inquiries have come from as far away as Germany, France, and the United States and across Canada. read more
