Manchester United v Swansea City: Van Gaal set for Premier League bow 14 August 2014 17:46 For the second season in a row, Manchester United kick off their Premier League campaign against Swansea City and under a new manager. After 27 years with Alex Ferguson at the helm, the Old Trafford club dismissed successor David Moyes just 10 months into his contract as they careered towards a seventh-placed finish in the Premier League last term - their lowest in the competition's history. Ryan Giggs saw out the season in the United hot seat on an interim basis, but the onus now falls on former Netherlands coach Louis Van Gaal to lead the club out of what are - by their own exalted standards - dark times. And the experienced coach, who led his country to the semi-finals of the World Cup in Brazil earlier this year, has brought a new sense of optimism to the 20-time English champions.

Where are Van Gaal's Manchester United leaders? As Patrice Evra becomes the latest senior player to depart Old Trafford, the incoming coach enters a dressing room full of individuals low on experience and confidence The list of departed leaders is extraordinary; unprecedented in a single Premier League summer. Patrice Evra, Rio Ferdinand, Ryan Giggs, Nemanja Vidic. All first-team captains, none to be seen in a Manchester United shirt again. Their exits took different forms. Giggs elected to retire when persuaded to remain at Old Trafford as one of Louis Van Gaal's assistants. His contract running down, Vidic chose to move to Serie A before United had the opportunity to show him the door. After 12 seasons in red, Ferdinand was informed that his services were no longer required. Losing the third part of what was until recently United's strongest defence was a more complicated process. Whatever you read last season about Patrice Evra being surplus to requirements for the coming campaign was misinformed. Evra ...

Manchester United assistant manager Ryan Giggs does not believe the club should retire his No.11 shirt following the end of his playing career. The Welshman officially announced his retirement from the game in May after a spell as interim manager at the end of the last season and has now taking up a role as second-in-command behind new boss Louis Van Gaal. The 40-year-old spent his entire 24-year career at Old Trafford, winning 13 Premier League titles, four FA Cups, three League Cups and two Champions Leagues but, despite his incredible achievements with United, Giggs wants the No.11 jersey to continue to be used. "There are obviously special cases but it just depends on the club, really," he told MUTV. "I don't think it's for United, where they constantly churn over great players." Giggs then joked that whoever follows him in wearing the shirt will be under immediate scrutiny. "I haven't thought about who will take over the No.11 shirt - that's a good question," he added. "They're under pressure, aren't ...
The Giggs story: 2007-11 Ryan Giggs was virtually ever-present during one of the most successful eras in Manchester United history, breaking records and collecting winners' medals at almost every turn… The evergreen Welshman was the first and last scorer in the unforgettable 2007/08 campaign, netting the opener in the Community Shield triumph over Chelsea before converting from the spot during the Reds’ dramatic penalty shootout success in the Champions League final. Poignantly, on that rain-soaked evening in Moscow, Giggs stepped off the bench to register his 759th match and break Sir Bobby Charlton’s long-standing appearance record. It was the perfect end to a season that also saw United claim the Premier League title with a 2-0 win at Wigan Athletic just 10 days earlier, when our silver-haired hero scored the trophy-winning goal.

Louis Van Gaal will need to hit the ground running when he finally takes over as Manchester United manager in July. The Holland coach has never been afraid of a challenge and says it has always been a dream to manage in the Premier League. Having won titles in Holland with two different clubs, and in Spain and Germany, he now wants to conquer England and, as he puts it, "make history". United's executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward and the club's longest-serving player Ryan Giggs have no doubt already outlined some of the problems that became apparent during the club's worst season for 25 years. But even a man of Van Gaal's vast experience may be shocked at the size of the task awaiting him at Old Trafford.   Here are 10 areas he will need to focus on to make Untied great again:   1) Rebuild the defence. With Patrice Evra likely to follow Rio Ferdinand and Nemanja Vidic through the exit door there are big holes to fill in the back four. United want Luke Shaw to become their left-back and are targ ...

Now that current Netherlands coach, Louis Van Gaal, has been confirmed as the new Manchester United manager. The Dutchman faces a daunting task to restore the former Premier League champions to the top of the English and European game. According to Reuters, below are the 10 issues which should be at the top of his to-do list when he starts work at Carrington after the 2014 World Cup ends in Brazil on 13 July: 1. Win the dressing room: Unreserved faith and support from United's senior players will be imperative for Van Gaal to work in the right kind of atmosphere at Old Trafford, something his predecessor David Moyes apparently lacked. It will also help if he sees things eye-to-eye with his assistant Ryan Giggs, who should play a crucial role in bonding the dressing room with the iron-fisted Dutchman. A healthy relationship between the coach and the players is the basic prerequisite for United to restore the Alex Ferguson-era confidence that was so palpably shattered by poor results under Moyes. 2.

Giggs expects appointment Ryan Giggs believes a new Manchester United manager is likely to be announced within a week and feels a lack of European involvement for the club next season will benefit the incoming boss. The 40-year-old took charge of United's final four Premier League games of the campaign following the sacking of David Moyes, culminating in a 1-1 draw at Southampton on the final day. A second-half Juan Mata free-kick cancelled out Rickie Lambert's opener for Saints as both sides shared the points from a typical end-of-season game as Mauricio Pochettino's side finished one place below the Red Devils in eighth place. With Giggs' own future unclear, the Welshman once again said he has several options available to him and admitted he must be quick to make a decision with the appointment of a new manager seemingly imminent. Asked if he was any closer to knowing his immediate future, Giggs replied: "No, I'm not really. "I'll decide within the next week. I think the managerial situation will be sor ...

Wilson shows the way for Man United This was a match which, though it should have had an end-of-term feeling about it, still contrived to produce several moving moments as Man United beat Hull 3-1. There was the sight of Ryan Giggs, winner of 13 Premier League titles, bringing himself on as a substitute with 20 minutes to go. There was the sight of Nemanja Vidic coming on for the injured Phil Jones for his last match at Old Trafford, an appearance which was greeted with the most rapturous of ovations. Above all, though, there was James Wilson, the 18-year-old future superstar who scored the game's first two goals with the sharpest of instincts. Wilson, who has now scored for the club's under-18, under-19, under-21 and first teams in the course of the season, is a talent of whom a great deal is expected, and rightly so. Louis Van Gaal, tipped to take over as United manager, is world-renowned for the quality of his work with young players, and the thought of him working with Wilson next season is a very exc ...
Manchester United 3-1 Hull City: Wilson scores twice on dream debut as Vidic bids farewell to Old Trafford The 18-year-old striker, given his first start as well as Tom Lawrence, netted in either half, while Matty Fryatt's fine long-ranger was made irrelevant by Robin Van Persie. It was a dream debut for Manchester United striker James Wilson as the 18-year-old's double secured a 3-1 Premier League victory over Hull City. The youngster, along with Welsh winger Tom Lawrence, was fielded by Ryan Giggs for his maiden first-team game and made it a memorable one half an hour in when he fired home with a left-footed volley. The Red Devils extended their lead through Wilson just after the 60-minute mark when he tapped in on the rebound, though the Tigers got a consolation in fine style with Matty Fryatt's long-range stunner only two minutes later. Old Trafford also had a chance to say goodbye to captain Nemanja Vidic, who came on for one last home game before joining Inter in the summer, while 40-year-old Giggs ...
Two goals from debutante James Wilson have led Manchester United to a 3-1 win over Hull City in the Premier League this evening. The home side wanted an early penalty when Adnan Januzaj was brought down in the box following a Maynor Figueroa challenge, but the referee was not interested in their shouts. The visitors had a chance in the opening 15 minutes when Robert Koren slid the ball forward for Shane Long , but Chris Smalling was able to clear before the striker could get his shot away. The hosts were forced into an early change when Phil Jones appeared to pick up a shoulder injury less than 20 minutes in, bringing Nemanja Vidic on during his final home match with the club. United broke the deadlock with just over half an hour gone as Marouane Fellaini played Wilson in on his senior debut, allowing the 18-year- old to smash the ball in. Januzaj had a chance to double Ryan Giggs's side's lead early in the second half with a shot from the edge of the box, but Eldin Jakupovic was able to deny him. United ...

Manchester United manager Ryan Giggs enjoyed a winning start to his Old Trafford reign as goals from Wayne Rooney and Juan Mata saw off Norwich. Giggs, in temporary charge after the sacking of David Moyes, watched Rooney score a penalty and curling effort either side of half-time. Substitute Mata added a third and headed in from six yards to keep United in the hunt for a Europa League spot. Defeat leaves Norwich one point above the Premier League relegation zone.

The same rules do not apply to the FA Cup however, with the runners-up in the competition getting a spot in Europe if the winners qualify via another route. So if Arsenal win the FA Cup, one of either Hull or Sheffield United will end up in the Europa League provided Arsene Wenger’s men finish in the top four in the league and thus, qualify for the Champions League.
Football - Premier League United hit four to give Giggs winning start Premier League, Old Trafford - Manchester United 4 (Rooney 40’ pen 48’ Mata 64’ 73’) Norwich City 0 Ryan Giggs enjoyed his first win as Manchester United manager with a 4-0 victory over Norwich City. Giggs watched in a suit from the sidelines, having left himself out of the match day squad. He was joined in the dugout by Nicky Butt, Paul Scholes and Phil Neville. United initially played much as they had for the whole season, struggling to find momentum or break the opposition down. Most of the play came down the right wing, with Phil Jones and Antonio Valencia sending in a number of poor crosses. Just before half time, Steven Whittaker brought down Danny Welbeck as he prepared to latch onto a loose ball Norwich failed to clear, and Wayne Rooney scored with a confident penalty. In the second half, Rooney took three minutes to extend the lead, curling in a fine shot from 25 yards. United regained some of their old confidence, and ...
Premier League preview: Ryan Giggs' Manchester United face Norwich at Old Trafford Last Updated: 25/04/14 11:15am Share: Ryan Giggs: Takes charge of Manchester United for the first time Events at Old Trafford have dominated the headlines since the last round of Premier League fixtures, with the decision to strip Moyes of his managerial duties announced on Tuesday. The United board - on the back of an 11th league defeat of the season away at Everton on Sunday - felt drastic action was required in order to start righting the wrongs of a disappointing campaign. Moyes was sacked just 10 months into a six-year contract, with the Scot finding out the hard way that following Sir Alex Ferguson is going to be no easy task for whoever inherits the reins. For the time being, that man is Giggs - with a United stalwart asked to restore pride and belief to an under-performing side. Numerous high-profile figures continue to be linked with the post on a long-term basis, with Holland coach Louis Van Gaal and Real Madrid's ...
Preview & Predicted Line-Ups: Man Utd – Norwich By Tim SimonPosted on April 25, 2014 This screenshot was taken from the Squawka Football App – Download it here What a difference a week makes. This time last week, David MoyesManchester United were preparing for a game against Everton which would ultimately be the last game of his reign as Sir Alex Ferguson’s successor. After the Scot’s sacking, Ryan Giggs has been placed in temporary charge for the remaining four league games, starting with the weekend game with Norwich, and all of a sudden, the positivity around Old Trafford has made a welcome return. Giggs, United’s record appearance maker, has promised that the side he picks in his first game as boss, will play with a quick tempo against a Canaries team that are fighting for their Premier League lives. For Norwich and caretaker manager Neil Adams, Moyes’ sacking could not have come at a worse time. With tough games to follow their trip to Old Trafford, they would have seen this as a winn ...
Manchester United VS Norwich City Predicted Manchester United XI to play Norwich City - Who does Giggs trust for first game in charge? Match to be played on Saturday 26th April 2014 at 17:30. Venue: Old Trafford, Manchester. There is going to be plenty of attention on Manchester United’s game against Norwich City this weekend as the post- David Moyes era begins. Ryan Giggs has been given control of the first team for the rest of the season as United stare at the grim possibility of no European football next year and the fact Liverpool could take their Premier League title by the end of May. Here’s the side Giggs could select for his first game in charge. GK – David De Gea This is one position that Giggs doesn’t have to think about. De Gea has been one of the only United players to show any form of consistency this season. RB – Chris Smalling Smalling is one of the most versatile defenders that United have but he needs to play in a settled position. CB – Phil Jones Jones is at his best when he ...
All eyes will be on the Old Trafford dug-out and the Chelsea teamsheet this weekend as Manchester United begin life after David Moyes, while Liverpool aim to move within touching distance of the Premier League title. Ryan Giggs, assisted by three fellow members of United’s famed ‘Class of 92’, will be in temporary charge of the troubled giants when struggling Norwich visit Manchester for the first match following Moyes’ sacking. Then at Anfield on Sunday, leaders Liverpool will wait with bated breath to see if Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho carries out his threat to field a weakened team as the Reds look to move a giant step closer to winning the title for the first time since 1990. So often at the centre of late-season title drama themselves, United have hogged the headlines for the wrong reasons this week, but their bench will be a different and probably calmer environment without the sight of the strained Moyes growing more pained with each chastening defeat. After only 10 months in charge the b ...
Man Utd shares jump 6% after manager Moyes’ sack (AFP) – Shares of Manchester United jumped six percent Tuesday after the struggling Premier League giant sacked manager David Moyes just 10 months into the job. Shares of the popular British football team, traded on the New York Stock Exchange, leaped in opening trade and rose to $19.18, before closing at $18.78, their best level since May 2, 2013. David Moyes The company announced Moyes’s departure ahead of the market opening, a much-anticipated move after the club’s poor showing this season. Moyes was recruited to replace legendary manager Alex Ferguson last year, inheriting a team that had romped to the Premier League title — United’s 20th English League crown — by 11 points. But under Moyes, 50, United have slumped to seventh place in the league table and been eliminated from both domestic cup competitions and the Champions League. The club’s owners announced that veteran midfielder Ryan Giggs will serve as interim manager while they loo ...
SPORTS UPDATE WITH EMMAH ATAI: Following the departure of David Moyes as manager, Manchester United has announced that Ryan Giggs, the club’s most decorated player, will assume responsibility for the first team until a permanent appointment can be made. The club will make no further comment on this process until it is concluded. Chelsea captain John Terry has stated that his side are focused on silencing their critics in order to reach this season's Champions League final. Spanish outfit Atletico Madrid stand in the Blues' way tonight at 22:45 to reach Europe's elite showpiece for the third time in the seven years. Gerard Houllier has backed Liverpool to go on and clinch the Premier League title - and believes it would be a fitting reward for the club's "special" supporters. Roberto Martinez says Everton must come through one of the toughest possible run of fixtures in the final weeks of the season if they are to finish in the top four. Former Swansea City midfielder Ferrie Bodde is in an induced coma a ...

Ryan Giggs was backed by Alex Ferguson to become the next Manchester United manager one day and makes sense if he guided the club over the next four league games. Ryan Giggs has the respect from everyone in world football but does he have the fear factor which has been missing since May last year. If you played for Manchester United and were 2-0 down at half- time after a woeful performance Alex Ferguson would let you know about it. Hence the hair-dryer treatment. Against Everton on Sunday when United went 2-0 down at half-time and the side looked like they were just counting down the games until they begin their summer vacation. This season would have hurt Alex Ferguson the most. Seeing his legacy destroyed, not qualifying for the Champions League and rivals Liverpool inches away from clinching the Premier League would have been his worst nightmare as Manager of Manchester United. Sir Alex Ferguson would love nothing better than to take the Premier League title away from Anfield and bring it to Mancheste ...

NEWCASTLE v Manchester United (Kick-Off 3:00 UK & Nigeria) Newcastle's injury woes continue, with Moussa Sissoko joining their lengthy list of absentees with a thigh strain. He joins the likes of Tim Krul, Mathieu Debuchy and Loic Remy on the sidelines. Manchester United duo Chris Smalling and Jonny Evans are back in training and available to play but Wayne Rooney is out with an injured toe while fellow striker Robin Van Persie remains out. Rafael and Ryan Giggs are doubts, but Alex Buttner is fit, while Juan Mata and Patrice Evra return. MATCH PREVIEW It's unusual for this fixture, at this stage of the season, not to be one of importance towards the top of the Premier League. However, make no mistake, it's hugely significant for both of these clubs in their current predicament. In Manchester United's rollercoaster season of transition there have been small signs of hope and recovery at times, only to then be followed by another negative result. Their midweek Champions League draw with Bayern Munich defie ...
Regional paper Talk LONDON EVENING STANDARD Arsenal are considering a summer move for former Chelsea striker Salomon Kalou.

'All the coaches around the world do not want to be favourites before the tie. I have to accept that we are. Last season Bayern won everything and this season we were 25 points ahead of our opponents and we won the title seven games early.

Manchester United's 'Class of '92' have agreed a deal to buy Salford City FC subject to FA and league approval. The group, which comprises Gary Neville, Phil Neville, Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes and Nicky Butt, had been in negotiations with the non-league outfit for the past month before reaching an agreement on Thursday evening, with the purchase set to be complete in the summer. Recent reports had linked the ex-United players with an astonishing move to buy the Premier League champions, though they have instead settled for a side playing in the eighth tier of English football. Former midfielder Scholes, meanwhile, has reportedly been lined up to take over the managerial reins at the club, having turned his back on a coaching role at Old Trafford under David Moyes. A statement read: "Salford is close to all their hearts. Manchester United nurtured and developed them but Salford is where it all began so, when the opportunity arose to acquire Salford City FC, it was one they all wished to pursue. "They want t ...
Player Ratings: Manchester United 3-0 Olympiakos (agg 3-2) A stunning Robin Van Persie hat-trick secured the hosts' place in the last eight of the Champions League as David Moyes' men overcame a two-goal deficit from the first leg The hosts had trailed 2-0 heading into the second leg, with manager David Moyes under huge pressure to produce a result, but the Scot avoided a Greek tragedy with the help of his prolific Dutch frontman. Manchester United's season lives on. On a night when failure simply was not an option for David Moyes and his side, the Premier League champions did enough, just, to secure their passage into the last eight of Europe's premier competition. Robin Van Persie's stunning hat-trick was a fitting way to win a tie that brought the very best out of Old Trafford, with the Stretford End at its loudest for a very long time. For the first time in what feels like a very, very long time, there are smiles again at the Theatre of Dreams. Penalties have become a familiar sight at Old Trafford in ...
Champions League : Van Persie hat-trick fires Manchester United into quarter-finals Van Persie Robin Van Persie scored a rousing hat-trick as Manchester United booked their place in the Champions League last eight with a breathless 3-0 win over Olympiacos at Old Trafford. David Moyes' side had trailed 2-0 from the first leg in Athens three weeks ago, but produced a stirring comeback with Van Persie, Wayne Rooney, Ryan Giggs and goalkeeper David De Gea returning to the levels of form that led United to the Premier League crown last season. Van Persie slammed a penalty into the net for the opening goal on 25 minutes before he tucked a Rooney pass beyond visiting goalkeeper Roberto for the second goal a minute into added time in the first period after a lovely ball over the top by Giggs to find Rooney. The Dutch forward added number three and the winning goal six minutes into the second half when he lifted a free-kick over the Greek side's wall and into the net with Roberto left dismally out of position. Oly ...
Robin Van Persie's hat-trick lifted the gloom surrounding Manchester United and manager David Moyes as the English side beat Olympiakos Piraeus 3-0 to overturn a 2-0 first-leg deficit and reach the Champions League quarterfinals on Wednesday. United, mounting a dismal defence of their Premier League title in Moyes's first campaign since replacing Alex Ferguson, kept alive their last remaining hope of lifting a trophy this season. Asked to show character by their manager, United responded with Van Persie showing a clinical edge that has been missing of late while the recalled Ryan Giggs was also instrumental on his first start since late January. Van Persie began the Old Trafford comeback with a 25th-minute penalty, awarded after he had been shoved in the back by Jose Holebas. The Dutchman levelled the tie on aggregate in first- half stoppage time, steering in Wayne Rooney's cross and Van Persie completed his hat-trick with a free kick six minutes after the break that left Olympiakos keeper Roberto rooted ...

The rumours around Robin Van Persie’s departure next season has been put to rest by David Moyes. The manager spoke in the pre conference held today. He expects RVP to stay and also chose to support him in his position. Though some Manchester United fans feel that RVP is already 30 and he must be off loaded. If you say so. Ryan Giggs is 40. Will you plan to off load him? (Even if you get a reasonable bid from others. No one would want to off load him) Van Persie is doing brilliantly in the field. He has the best Match – Goal ratio in United and was also the top scorer of last season. He is very much needed for us and has a vast experience in Premier League. His form has definitely dipped following his injuries and the criticism he is facing from the fans. But if given support he will be back to his best and treat us with some exceptional display. The Team's morale is low and that has lead to poor results. They have no will to fight back. In such situations, we need to utilize the more experienced playe ...

Transfer news : Manchester United step up chase for Internazionale midfielder Fredy Guarin. Manchester United manager David Moyes has reportedly sent out representatives to watch Internazionale's Fredy Guarin ahead of making a January offer for the midfielder. The 27-year-old has been identified as the player needed to bolster Moyes' struggling midfield, in which he has largely played 40-year-old Ryan Giggs and centre-back Phil Jones in the middle of this season. Guarin is well known to one current Premier League manager - Tottenham Hotspur's Andre Villas-Boas, having won the treble under him at Porto in 2011. The Colombian can also play in the Champions League knockout stages, as Inter finished ninth in Serie A last season. Guarin joined Inter from Porto for £9m in May 2012, turning his loan deal permanent. It was been reported that Inter could be open to an offer of £15m for the midfielder

Manchester United is a highly successful English football club, with millions of supporters across the world. Its current players include Ryan Giggs, Wayne Rooney and Robin Van Persie, and among its former players are Bobby Charlton, David Beckham and Cristiano Ronaldo. Manchester United is presently managed by David Moyes, appointed to follow Sir Alex Ferguson, the most successful manager in English football. Manchester United was one of the first English clubs to play in Europe (1956) and the first to win the European Cup (1968). Returning from a European tie in 1958, Manchester United lost eight players and various club officials in the Munich air disaster. Manchester United is the only English club to have won the Premiership, the FA Cup and the UEFA Champions League in the same season (1998-1999), and most recently won the Premier League title in 2012-2013.
Manchester United have gained a reputation as one of the best places for young footballers to ply their trade. It's a tradition that stems back to the ‘Golden Generation’ under Sir Alex Ferguson, when the likes of David Beckham, Gary Neville, Ryan Giggs and Paul Scholes all graduated to the Red Devils first team. But, over the years, the current Premier League champions have let their fair share of top talent leave the club as well. 5.Ravel Morrison to West Ham United 4.Ryan Shawcross to Stoke City 3.Giuseppe Rossi to Villarreal 2.Gerard Pique to Barcelona 1.Paul Pogba to Juventus Comment if I have missed anyone
Ryan Giggs is Best Player in Premier League history: Jamie Carragher via
Manchester United manager David Moyes hails Ryan Giggs as the Premier League's "best ever" player:
Ryan Giggs suggested he may just swerve training with Manchester United this morning... to avoid the inevitable pranks that await him on his 40th birthday. United legend Giggs celebrates the milestone on Friday, and is in no doubt his team-mates will have some practical jokes planned at the club’s training ground to mark the occasion. “I’m not coming in on Friday,” said Giggs, with a wry smile. “I’m going to stay in bed, I think, just in case!” Asked whether he would be glad when his birthday is over, given all the hype and interest surrounding him turning 40, Giggs said: “Yeah, I will. “It’s not really a big milestone for me. Obviously, it is, but I try not to think about it as much and I don’t think about it, if I’m honest, until guys like you remind me!” Yet there is no getting away from the magnitude of Giggs’ achievement in becoming only the fourth outfield player – and seventh in total – to grace the Premier League at 40, following Kevin Phillips, Teddy Sheringham, Go ...

Coach and player Giggs laughs off suggestions Man United are underdogs for Sunday's showdown with Arsenal. The Welshman is also happy that the game has regained some of its importance after years or Arsenal falling from the title picture Ryan Giggs scoffed at the suggestion Manchester United will be underdogs when they face Premier League leaders Arsenal tomorrow. Although Arsenal go to Old Trafford eight points ahead of United, Giggs seemed affronted at the idea that David Moyes’s side would start the game as second-best. “Are you making us underdogs?” asked the veteran midfielder, fixing the questioner with a look of near disdain. “ Manchester United against Arsenal at Old Trafford and we’re underdogs? I wouldn’t say we were underdogs. They’ve had a good week, beating Liverpool and Borussia Dortmund, so confidence is high in their camp. “I take the point that Arsenal are probably the form team and it’s going to be a tough game.

Lampard is the only midfielder in the top 15 Premier League goal scorers and is 57 ahead of the next midfielder, Ryan Giggs. If any midfielder was going to win the Golden Boot, it would have been Lampard but the opportunity never occurred. His best return in the 2009/10 season saw him score 22 goals, finishing fifth in the goal scoring charts. His team mate Didier Drogba won with 29 goals. With his role at Chelsea becoming less prominent, it looks as though an unlikely Golden Boot looks out of reach for Super Frank. RESPECT

THE PAST, PRESENT & FUTURE OF Man Utd David Moyes makes his first public appearance as Manchester United manager at Old Trafford on Friday with a mix of old and new forming around him in his revamped backroom team. If Manchester United fans questioned the credentials of those Moyes has brought with him from Everton, then the promotion and appointment of trusted figures from Sir Alex Ferguson's golden generation will provide a sense of reassurance. Moyes's first serious move after succeeding the retiring Ferguson was to surround himself with familiar faces from his 11 years at Everton. They were experienced in Premier League terms but - like the new manager himself - did not offer the consistent trophy-winning pedigree demanded at United. This is where the elevation of Ryan Giggs to player-coach and the arrival on the coaching staff of Phil Neville - after retiring at Everton at the end of last season - provide a counterpoint to the shortage of United experience in Moyes's new team. UNITED'S NEW REGIME ...

My United XI: Nicky Butt iFormation: 4-4-2 Peter Schmeichel “He was so hard to score against and such a massive character.” Gary Neville “Gary was Mr Consistency throughout his United career. He rarely played badly.” Jaap Stam “An awesome defender with great recovery pace, strength and physique.” Rio Ferdinand “Rio is simply the best footballing centre-back I have ever seen.” Denis Irwin “Ultra-reliable, like Gary, plus he could produce the goods from free kicks.” David Beckham “His final pass and delivery were brilliant, and he had a first-class work ethic.” Roy Keane “Great leader and a massive presence, but his football talent was underrated.” Paul Scholes “A phenomenal player with an incredible footballing brain. Such a goal threat, too.” Ryan Giggs “One of the Best Players to grace the Premier League – and he keeps getting better.” Eric Cantona “Legend. Everyone looked up to him, and he won us those early Premier League titles.” Andy Cole “A proper out and ...

May 30th, 2013 by Guest Everton : A Vision for the Future Posted in Everton FC, Featured Posts Tags: Everton In April I was lucky enough through work, to be able to take part in a trip to Thailand and Cambodia for 15 days. Six of these days I spent in Bangkok, while I was there I thought it would be interesting to see what kind of presence (if any) we have in the city and see if Chang really are as big as the club make out. When we were driving down the expressway through into Bangkok one of the first sights that greeted my eyes was a 10 storey (probably more) photo of Ryan Giggs with the United badge, Premier League badge and most importantly the Singha beer logo right at the top and bottom of the advertisment. This set the tone for the rest of my stay. From my impressions the club are certainly right Chang is an absolutely huge brand and their logo is on every single bar/cafe/eaterie, you will even see hundreds of people per day weari . ...
"People talk about Ryan Giggs, but for me Paul Scholes has been the best English player in the Premier League" - Giggs is WELSH Paul Merson!
Golden oldies XI . Ryan Giggs, David Beckham and Thierry Henry all feature in our 35 and over all-star XI. At the age of 39, Ryan Giggs made his 1000th professional appearance against Real Madrid on Tuesday. He is one of the great footballers who are still playing at ages considered old for footballers. There are also many other fne players taht are still succeeding as they reach their twilight years. Here's my fantasy 11 of players aged 35 and above that are still playing the game: Goalkeeper: Brad Friedel - Tottenham - 41 At the age of 41, Brad Frieldel is currently the oldest player in the Premier League. Perhaps most famous for his record run of 310 consecutive Premier League games, the American is a great keeper. Despite playing second fiddle to Hugo Lloris at Spurs, he is still worthy of a place in my team. Right Back: Javier Zanetti - Inter Milan - 39 Argentine veteran Zanetti is a great within Italian football. Deployed mainly as a right back, Argentina's most capped player is very versatile, able ...
Well, less than seven days after Ryan Giggs celebrated his 1000th senior appearance, the Welshman is getting some more love. The Manchester United star has never received a red card throughout his Premier League career - that's 45,495 minutes of football - by far the most minutes out of any player in top flight history. Actually, Manchester United have a pretty decent record when it comes to keeping players on the pitch. No less than four current and former- United stars make into the top 10 players to have played the most minutes without ever having received their marching orders. Edwin Van Der Sar and Peter Schmeichel are two of five keepers on the list, while Michael Carrick is also in the top 10. But Giggs is out on his own as undisputed number one. He's played 6,000 minutes more than second placed Shay Given, a quite incredible record especially for an outfield player. In fact, he's never been sent off for Manchester United. Despite being the club's record appearance maker with over 900 outings, his ...
Why Sir Alex Ferguson is still the best Manager in the world ? While the footballing world laments a shocker of a decision from a poor referee in a very good game, I thought I would look at United’s exit from the Champions League (beaten 2-1 (3-2 on agg.) by Real Madrid on Tuesday night) from a managerial point of view. Sir Alex Ferguson needs no introduction to the footballing world. 12 Premier League titles, 5 FA Cups, 4 League Cups, 2 Champions League titles and a treble – that’s about as impressive as it can get. Yet on Tuesday night, Sir Alex was on the money with an asset of his that is not talked about much – his tactical genius. Before the game had started, the world was in for a typical Fergie shocker – he had kept Wayne Rooney out of the Manchester United lineup, and 39-year-old Ryan Giggs was to start a match against the fastest team in the world. Carlton Palmer said that Ferguson got his tactics wrong, and that United would be mauled by a slick Real team. But then again, that is why ...
giggstop10 Manchester United icon Ryan Giggs reached another incredible landmark last night when he made the 1000th appearance of his senior career. The 39-year-old signed a new one-year deal at Old Trafford last week, meaning he will play on into his 40s, and his legend continues to grow. His appearances have all been for the Red Devils and Wales, and he made his league debut for Man Utd all the way back in March 1991. Giggs has now clocked up a club-record 932 games for United, winning 12 Premier League titles, two Champions Leagues, four FA Cups, four League Cups, one Club World Cup, eight Community Shields, one Super Cup and one Intercontinental Cup. The Welshman played the full 90 minutes in last night’s agonising 2-1 Champions League defeat to Real Madrid, again underlining his supreme fitness despite his age. Giggs has had so many highs and not too many lows during his illustrious career to date, and looks like adding a 13th title to his collection this season, but what have been his best moments ...

Sir Alex Ferguson is confident Robin Van Persie will be fit to face Real Madrid after the Manchester United striker picked up an injury in the 2-0 win over QPR. Van Persie hurt his hip after colliding with a camera in the build-up to United's first goal and he was eventually replaced six minutes before half-time by Danny Welbeck. The Premier League's top scorer will be assessed in the next few days, but Ferguson expects the Dutchman to be available for the second leg of the UEFA Champions League tie against Real on 5 March. "He collided into a camera which was dug out of a piece of ground, he collided into the base of it and that's given him a sore hip," Ferguson told Sky Sports. "I imagine it will be tender and sore for a few days, but hopefully he'll be alright, particularly for the Real game." The victory at Loftus Road was secured by a stunning goal from Rafael and a late finish from the evergreen Ryan Giggs, and opened up a 15- point gap to reigning champions Manchester City. Ferguson added: "We're i ...

Well, at Loftus sparkling Road - Guess what happened to Ranger Rick, QPR? "They got religated?" No, not yet, have another go. "They took thier country-side hat off to the Lovely Queen Elizabeth and singing the British National Anthem, 'God Save the Queen' and earned more Premier League points?" Ok, stil No! I'll tell you and all the boot-footy fans - Ranger Rick where supprisingly slaughtered by the cheeky, wretched Devils, Man Yacharmingnited, 2-0. In that flaming match, with the solidier boy, Sergeant Wayne Rooney was sleeping on the bench, while sitting with an assault rifle standing up, in his dear hand, aww. In the 23rd minute, Rafael made it 1-0 for the Devils. In the second half, 80th minute, the soldier boy, Rooney came on, kicked the ball to Ryan Giggs, ...
Monday Night Football: QPR defending unexplainable, says Sky Sports' Gary Neville Gary Neville was left baffled by Queens Park Rangers' 'unexplainable' defending at the weekend but thinks the Premier League's rock-bottom club could still produce a Great Escape. A 2-0 defeat by league leaders Manchester United on Saturday left Harry Redknapp's team at the foot of the table and seven points from safety with just 11 matches remaining in the season. There was little QPR could do to stop Rafael from opening the scoring with a wonderful strike but Sky Sports expert Neville was less than impressed with the defending which allowed Ryan Giggs to add United's second. "Southampton could almost put QPR to bed on Saturday. But if QPR win and bring Southampton back into them, they could potentially go on a run" Gary Neville Quotes of the week Jose Bosingwa permitted Danny Welbeck to set up the goal while Stephane Mbia moved away from play, seemingly adjusting his gloves rather than focusing on the game, before Clint Hi ...
Did You know? Ryan Giggs scored on his 999 match as a profesional player today. Arsenal have finished above Tottenham in the league for the last 17 seasons in a row. 73% of Real Madrid fans said that they would like to see Michael Laudrup take over as coach should José Mourinho leave the post! [AS] Chelsea have been awarded more penalties than any other side in the Premier League this season [8].
A sublime volley from Dimitar Berbatov started it... A Piledriver from Rafael made it better and a cool thump from Ryan Giggs ended it... Premier League on Saturday... worth the wait of 5 long days. GGMU!!!
Phil Neville: "Ryan Giggs is the greatest Premier League player of all time."
Today is Independence Day in The Gambia and Sepandarmazgan in Iran!   As for birthdays, today is a big day for:   Gary Neville - 38 - English football (soccer) player known for playing his entire career at Manchester United from 1992 to 2011. He was put into the senior squad back in 1992 when he was 17 years old. He played right back for nearly 20 seasons for Manchester United, which saw him 400 league games and is the most capped right back for the English National Team. As for his team, only Ryan Giggs played more games for Manchester United. His greatest partnership was probably with David Beckham for many years, being his complimentary assist maker and backup from 1995 to 2003. In his career with Man United, he won 8 Premier League titles, 3 FA Cups, 2 UEFA Champions League titles, 1 Intercontinental Cup, 1 Fifa Club World Cup, and was part of the "The Treble" in the 1998-1999 season. He finally retired after the 2011 season and is now currently a coach for the English National Team and is a comment ...
Ryan Giggs believes Manchester United have been the beneficiaries of Rio Ferdinand's England exile after the centre-back put in another stellar performance in the 1-1 draw at Real Madrid on Wednesday night. Rio Ferdinand won 81 caps Ferdinand, 34, has not played for England since a 2-2 European Championship qualifying draw with Switzerland at Wembley in June 2011 and has never been selected by current boss Roy Hodgson. But Ferdinand, who is out at contract at United in the summer, has not let the situation with his international career, which appears to be over, affect his club form. Ferdinand has started 19 Premier League games this season, though his appearance in Madrid was only his second Champions League start of the campaign. When asked if the England situation has affected Ferdinand, Giggs, who was applauded onto the pitch by Madrid fans when he came off the bench, said: "I don't think it has. We're just happy that he's playing so well for United. "England's loss is our gain. The rest of the stuff ...
"I missed my penalty and it felt like the worst day of my life. Now it's the happiest day of my life." Cristiano Ronaldo Forty years after their first European Cup triumph, half a century on from the Munich air crash and on the night of Ryan Giggs's club-record 759th appearance, Manchester United FC's evening, as they contested the 2007/08 UEFA Champions League final, was so nearly spoiled.After an epic domestic campaign which saw United sneak out on top of perennial Premier League rivals Chelsea FC, this first all-English showpiece delivered its own brand of engaging encounter at a rain-soaked Luzhniki Stadium.United were first to show their hand 26 minutes in, Cristiano Ronaldo dropping off Michael Essien and leaping majestically to head Wes Brown's cross low into the corner for his 42nd club goal of the season.Buoyed by the effervescent Owen Hargreaves and calmed by the composed Paul Scholes, United's goal was first threatened when Rio Ferdinand inadvertently headed that way. Edwin Van Der Sar to the r ...
SEVEN THINGS WE LEARNT AGAINST EVERTON. 1)THE PREMIER LEAGUE WILL RETURN TO Old Trafford Although one would never like to admit that a competition is indeed over three months prior to its official crescendo, it’s pretty much a certainty that Manchester United’s time away from Premier League glory will come to an end this season.With 26 games gone and a 12-point gap now separating the Red Devils from second-place Manchester City, it would take something of a spectacular fall for the Red Devils to spoil their bid now considering that in those first 26 matches, United have dropped just 13 points. "12 points is too much at the moment"- Roberto Mancini. 2)THERE IS ONLY ONE SIR RYAN GIGGS. After opening the scoring against Everton, Ryan Giggs extended his run of claiming a goal in every Premier League season in history, netting for the 23rd consecutive campaign.Putting it frankly, never will a player eclipse some of the Manchester United legend’s achievements in this sport, which now rank near mythical te ...

SUNDAYS GOSSIP Former England captain David Beckham, 37, will try to convince at least four big-name England stars, including Steven Gerrard, to join the MLS - once he has sorted out his own future. Ashley Cole and Peter Crouch are also believed to be on the wishlist. Premier League teams including Tottenham, Manchester City, Arsenal and Liverpool are all believed to be interested in signing striker Christian Benteke from struggling Aston Villa. The 22-year-old striker has scored 11 goals already this season. Reading are plotting to hijack Blackpool winger Tom Ince's move to Liverpool with an £8m bid. Stoke City goalkeeper Asmir Begovic has set his heart on a summer move to Manchester United, although Manchester City, Arsenal and Liverpool have also shown an interest in the 25-year-old, who is rated at £14m. Newcastle are in talks to sign Ivory Coast striker Wilfried Bony, 24, from Dutch side Vitesse Arnhem for £12m. Sir Alex Ferguson took the advice of Ryan Giggs and Paul Scholes before signing Robin ...

Premier League: 10 talking points from the Boxing Day action Sir Alex Ferguson tinkers too much, Chelsea still need Frank Lampard's nous and Dimitar Berbatov's T-shirt was not offensive "We always make it hard for ourselves, it's in the nature of this club." So goes the popular Sir Alex Ferguson refrain and, with his team coming from behind yet again, he will probably consider himself proved right yet again. But there is not a whole lot that Steve Bruce's late headers have in common with the epidemic of rescue missions required almost 20 years later. More likely they reflect compulsive tinkering and inexplicable team selections which are creating unnecessary messes that need clearing up. Paul Scholes and Ryan Giggs are exceptional substitutes because both still produce exceptional moments but the moments before and after are of variable quality. Thus, with both starting against Newcastle and Tom Cleverley on the bench, it was no surprise to see United's midfield ignored by the visitors – Tottenham did t ...
Sir Alex Ferguson is ready to break up his dream team pairing of | Robin Van Persie | and Wayne 'Wazza' Rooney over Christmas, despite their goals firing Manchester United to top spot and heading towards a Premier League scoring record. Sir Alex Ferguson, who has avoided rotating his £50million strikers so far, feels he has to change his policy to cope with a run of four games in 10 days, starting against Swansea City on Sunday afternoon. Fringe players including Chicharito, Danny Welbeck, Phil Jones and Ryan Giggs can be expected to play a part in fixtures against Swansea, Newcastle United, West Bromwich Albion and Wigan, with Ferguson confident that a maximum 12 points over the holiday period will lead to them reclaiming the title from Manchester City.

Manchester United are ready to end speculation over Rio Ferdinand’s future and offer him a new deal to stay on at Old Trafford for another year. According to the Daily Star, Sir Alex Ferguson wants the Former England captain to remain with the Red Devils but Ferdinand is still mulling over his options for the future. Recent media reports had suggested Ferdinand was ready to end his time with United, as were teammates Ryan Giggs and Paul Scholes. The Star also claims teams from China, the Middle East and America are ready to come in with lucrative offers in a bid to lure Ferdinand away from the Premier League, but the Manchester United boss still feels the 34-year-old has a lot to offer. Ferdinand has finally shrugged off serious fitness issued that had threatened his future 18 months ago or so, with him unable to play too many games too close together. That is no longer a problem and he has featured in the majority of United’s league games this season. Ferdinand moved to Old Trafford from Leeds United ...
Paul Scholes will quit football next summer — and this time there is no Coming Back. The Manchester United legend, 38, has told people close to him this is definitely his final season. Scholes first retired after the 2010-11 campaign, which saw United win a record 19th title. He took up a role coaching the reserves but badly missed match days and training with the first team — and believed he still had something to offer. SunSport exclusively revealed last January that he wanted to return as a player. He made his comeback as a substitute in United’s FA Cup victory over Manchester City on January 8. Scholes, whose stunning trophy haul includes 10 Premier League crowns, two European Cups and three FA Cups, went on to play a big part as United pulled clear of City in the title race, only to eventually miss out on goal difference. He was encouraged enough to carry on playing this season but the Former England man has started just seven games. Fellow veteran Ryan Giggs, 39, has also made only seven start ...
With all due respect for Ryan Giggs but Alan Shearer might have something to say about being the "Best Player in Premier League history" -Zz
Wayne Rooney has been voted the Premier League's Best Player in a 30,000 strong Barclays Global Fans Survey. One in five voters selected the 27-year-old as the first name on their respective team sheets out of all the current crop of top- flight stars, with the England international's Old Trafford team-mate Robin Van Persie taking second place with 14 per cent. Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard claimed third with 10 per cent, while Luis Suarez was not far behind in fifth in the survey which covered nearly 200 worldwide territories. Rooney succeeds Chelsea striker Fernando Torres, who was the favourite player the last time the survey was taken, during his playing days at Anfield back in 2008. "It's great to be recognised by the fans in this survey," said Rooney. "I get messages from fans all over the world so I know how popular the Barclays Premier League is outside of the UK." However, it's Red Devils veteran Ryan Giggs who scooped the accolade of best Premier League player of all-time, overtaking another ...
Ryan Giggs has compared United’s current rivalry with City to that formerly shared with Arsenal, citing the recently intensified Manchester derby as reason. From 1997 to 2004, the Reds consistently battled the Gunners for the Premier League title and meetings between the pair were often highly-charged, competitive affairs that weren’t for the faint-hearted. Just days after a similarly ferocious match at the Etihad Stadium, Giggs cannot help but compare clashes with the Blues to those of yesteryear against Arsene Wenger’s team. “We had so many battles with Arsenal that were skilful games, but also physically tough, and I felt the game was like that on Sunday,” Ryan told Red Voices, ManUtd.com’s exclusive podcast. “It is two very good teams with the added spice that it’s a local derby. Over the last three years, each Manchester derby has intensified. The build-up is longer, people start talking about it earlier and the feeling when you win is even better. “It was two quality sides, both in ...
Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney contributes much more than goals to the Premier League leaders, according to team-mate Ryan Giggs.

And with his team looking to maintain their Premier League title challenge, Ferguson has opted to rest a number of senior names - including Paul Scholes, Ryan Giggs, Antonio Valencia and David De Gea - in favour of some of the club's younger players.
I got this fro the History page. MORE GOALS Manchester United became the first team to have scored 1 000 goals in the league after Cristiano Ronaldo scored in a 4–1 defeat of Middlesbrough in the 2005/06 season. Arsenal, Chelsea and Liverpool are the only other teams to have reached the 1 000-goal mark. The highest-scoring match to date in the Premier League occurred on September 29, 2007, when Portsmouth beat Reading 7–4. Five goals is the record individual scoring total for a player in a single Premier League game, and as of November 2009, only three players had achieved this feat, Andy Cole first, followed by Alan Shearer and then Jermain Defoe. Only Ryan Giggs of Manchester United has scored in all 18 Premier League seasons.
Ryan Giggs wife has announced that she has left him, and taken half of everything . She now has 6 more Premier League medals than Steven Gerrard.
Chelsea sensationally avenged their bitter Premier League defeat to Manchester United as they won an nine-goal Capital One Cup thriller 5-4 after extra-time at Stamford Bridge. United looked set to pile on the misery for the European champions with a 3-2 fourth-round victory three days after ending their 10-year wait for a league win in west London, in the most controversial manner imaginable. But Eden Hazard scored a penalty with the last kick of normal time before Daniel Sturridge and Ramires completed an amazing comeback just 24 hours after Arsenal's astonishing 7-5 win at Reading. Just as in that game, defending was nowhere to be seen as United led three times through Ryan Giggs, Javier Hernandez and Nani and Chelsea hit back with a David Luiz penalty and Gary Cahill header. Giggs also scored an extra-time consolation from the spot for United as the Mark Clattenburg saga was briefly forgotten. The 6,000 United fans, far more than on Sunday, mercilessly taunted their opponents throughout about both Cla ...
2011–12 season Rooney started the season with a goal in the first league game at The Hawthorns against West Bromwich Albion. Rooney played a one-two with Ashley Young before a sharp turn and finish from outside the box which found the bottom corner of the goal. He also scored in the second game of the season, at home to Tottenham Hotspur, when he headed in a Ryan Giggs cross late in the game.[144] In late August, Rooney scored his 150th goal for United, the first of a hat-trick, helping to demolish Arsenal 8–2.[14] Rooney won man of the match, scoring two free kicks, a penalty, and also contributing an assist for Nani. He followed this up with another hat-trick in the next game; a 5–0 away win over Bolton Wanderers on 10 September, becoming only the fourth player in Premier League history to score a hat-trick in consecutive games.[145] These goals brought him level with Sir Bobby Charlton on seven United hat-tricks, joint fourth on the all-time list behind Denis Law, Jack Rowley and Dennis Viollet.[ ...

It makes perfect sense, therefore, that he is thinking ahead to make sure United are in the best possible shape when he eventually retires - and he is likely to have the deciding say on who succeeds him at Old Trafford. Jose Mourinho and Pep Guardiola are, in Ferguson’s mind, the only two candidates who can take on a job that is virtually impossible. How do you replace the greatest club manager ever, a man who has won 12 Premier League titles? It is not a task that someone like David Moyes could take on with confidence given he has never won a trophy with Everton. Nor is it a job for a United legend like Ryan Giggs or Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. Yes, they are certainly the type of figures who know the club and are worth having in the coaching set-up, but the job is too big for them. A few years ago, the likes of Roy Keane, Steve Bruce and Mark Hughes were all being mentioned as potential replacements for Ferguson but would not even make a 50-man longlist now. No. Replacing the best requires the best. Ferguson ...
Sunday's tense 2-1 victory ended a five-year wait for Manchester United's tenth Premier League win at Anfield. The scorer who sealed the visitors' return to winning ways, Robin Van Persie, can now be bracketed with other backyard nemeses of the Reds' arch-rivals - the likes of Brian Mcclair, who nodded in the winner when United's first Premier League visit to Anfield, in March 1993, finished 2-1 in his team's favour. Andy Cole's goal made it 3-1 to the away team in April 1997, and the striker did the same eight months later after David Beckham had curled home a glorious free-kick. Cole also scored in the 3-2 triumph at Anfield in September 1999, although the second of two Jamie Carragher owngoals was effectively United's winner. Diego Forlan's memorable double in December 2002 (United won 2-1) was followed by a pair for Ryan Giggs (2-1) in November 2003. The fashionable scoreline then became 1-0 with Wayne Rooney (2004/05), John O'Shea (2006/07) and Carlos Tevez (2007/08) taking it in turns to separate th ...
Giggs achieved his 600 th Premier League appearance against Wigan Athletic last Saturday, and proved to the footballing worldthat he is far from finished. When subbed in the 71 st minute alongside Paul Scholes, who was making his 700 th Manchester United appearance, the stadium rose to their feet to applause the Premier League’s longest-standing footballer as if it was his last game. Regardless of a fleet of talent gracing the Manchester United bench, including the likes of hot prospect Tom Cleverley and new signing Shinji Kagawa, Ryan Giggs proved on Saturday that he should still be regarded as one of the games’ best midfielders. Undoubtedly set to take a grand place in Manchester United’s coveted hall of fame when the time comes for the veteran to retire, Ryan Giggs still has success on his mind, and will hope to clinch his 13 th Premier League winners’ medal this season after signing for the club as a trainee in 1990. As well as hoping to help Manchester United to the title, after sorely missin ...

Since signing for the club, Van Persie has made an immediate impact for the Red Devils by scoring four goals in three Premier League games, including a hat-trick against Southampton to rescue three points from a losing position for his new team. However, Former Manchester United goalkeeper Edwin Van Der Sar has revealed that it was no easy decision for Van Persie to decide what club he wanted to join. Van der Sar spoke to the 29- year-old ex-Arsenal skipper for almost an hour discussing what life at Manchester United was like. He told The Telegraph: "He called me up and said other clubs were in for him, but because I played for two of them, United and Juventus, he wanted to hear my thoughts about them. "So we spoke for five minutes about Juventus and 55 minutes about United. He wanted to know how good United were, what he would find there, how the players are, what Ferguson is like, how they train, how the system works. "He has shown his quality already. I read a statement from Ryan Giggs saying that Unit ...
