UNITED COMPLETE SIGNING OF VICTOR LINDELOF

Manchester United is delighted to announce the signing of Victor Lindelof from Benfica on a four-year contract from 1 July 2017, with an option for a further year.

The 22-year-old Swedish international centre-back is a versatile defender and will make his debut on the summer tour of the USA in July.

I know that our fantastic group of players will welcome him as one of us.”

 

 

 


Victor Lindelof said:

“I am thrilled to be joining Manchester United. I have enjoyed my time at Benfica enormously and I have learned a lot there.

Manchester United 2-0 Southampton

 Match report: United 2 Southampton 0

Premier League | Old Trafford | Att: 75,326 | Scorers: Ibrahimovic 36, 52 (pen)

Paul Pogba may have been the star attraction beneath the Friday night lights, but Zlatan Ibrahimovic stole the show at Old Trafford after his brace secured a 2-0 win over Southampton that keeps Manchester United top of the Premier League table.

The Swedish striker scored either side of half-time, firstly with a well-taken header and then from the penalty spot, as Jose Mourinho’s men dispatched the visitors in a comfortable fashion that will continue to fuel the belief that the team can challenge for the title this season.

The first home match of the season is always a special occasion for fans, yet this much-anticipated Old Trafford outing was elevated beyond the traditional sense of excitement in light of Pogba’s first appearance since returning to the club following a four-season spell at Juventus. The world-record signing’s every touch was cheered, particularly throughout the opening exchanges, and the stadium would have erupted had his shot from Ibrahimovic’s pass beaten Fraser Forster on 13 minutes.

Southampton did not excel in their first match under new manager Claude Puel, drawing 1-1 with Watford, yet they made a positive start at Old Trafford – firstly, by winning the coin toss and making United attack the Stretford End in the first half, which is against tradition. The Saints then registered shots at goal through Dusan Tadic and Shane Long, in spite of Oriol Romeu going off injured.

Wayne Rooney stung the palms of Forster with a rasping strike on the half-hour mark, and it was the captain who assisted the opener moments later. His superb cross from the right corner-flag was headed home at the back post by Ibrahimovic, the summer signing who made it three goals in as many competitive matches after his strikes in the Community Shield and at Bournemouth.

STATS AT HALF-TIME
Possession:
United 47% Southampton 53%
Shots at goal: United 4 Southampton 6
Shots on target: United 3 Southampton 1
Corners: United 3 Southampton 0

Juan Mata, a scorer at Bournemouth last weekend, blazed over the crossbar and Southampton’s Tadic saw a goal disallowed for offside as the match resumed in entertaining fashion. Anthony Martial then tested Forster with a 20-yard drive from the left wing before Ibrahimovic scored from the penalty spot to double the Reds’ advantage. Luke Shaw won the spot-kick after going to ground inside the area, with Jordy Clasie the guilty party.

Pogba displayed his repertoire of attributes – strength, vision, creativity – and almost added a goal to his performance when heading over from Mata’s corner on 64 minutes. It was at this point when Mourinho turned from his technical area and nodded repeatedly to the crowd while clapping his hands together, as if he was praising their support. He had, of course, spoken about its importance on Thursday, telling MUTV: “If the fans play their part, there will be no chance for the opponent.”

Armenia captain Henrikh Mkhitaryan was introduced to the Old Trafford crowd on 75 minutes, taking the place of Mata on the right, before Martial was replaced by Ander Herrera as Mourinho looked to consolidate the victory in the professional manner that his teams have become known for.

As for Pogba, United’s new no.6, he finished the game despite not playing since the European Championship final on 10 July. While his name was not added to the score sheet, despite going close with a powerful shot wide in the 93rd minute, the 23-year-old’s industrious display in midfield hinted at what will hopefully become a stellar career back at the club he calls “home”. Welcome back, Paul.

STATS AT FULL-TIME
Possession: United 45% Southampton 55%

Shots on target: United 5 Southampton 1
Corners: United 4 Southampton 0

pogbaunited

Paul, welcome back to Manchester United. How do you sum up your emotions right now?
There’s no words, to be honest, there’s no words. I just came back to Carrington. It was like I’d just come back home. I just went for a holiday, looks like I went for a holiday. I’ve come back home, I’m happy and I see everyone, the same persons. It’s just a great feeling, to be honest.

I suppose it’s a funny question after what you’ve just said but why are you back here at United? What made you come back?
I think it’s destiny, I would say it’s destiny. First my mum told me I would come back here and I told her, ‘You never know, you’ll see.’ For myself as well it’s a big challenge too, just to come back to where I came from, where I grew up, where I started. I didn’t finish what I started here so I think I came here to finish it.

And of course, you have to listen to your mum…
My mum, she says ‘Your mum’s always right.’ So she was right this time, so it’s good.

And how does it feel to be the world’s most expensive footballer? That’s quite an achievement with all that you’ve already achieved on the pitch…
The thing with me is I only think about the pitch. I want to do great, I want to be one of the best, I want to win titles, I want to achieve things and that’s all; that’s why I came here, just to do this, to become one of the best and to win titles because I know this club has to win titles. This club is created to win titles, to win things, to win big things. I just focus on this and that’s it. I’m just ready to go and work on that and just kill it. (smiles)

Has it been a mad summer for you, playing in the Euros at home for France and then being linked with different clubs?
Yeah. Was there a bit of sadness? Of course, because we lost the final at home. But I will say I’m happy. It was a bad thing for a good thing so I’m happy now. I’m back home and it’s something crazy, it’s really crazy, I cannot explain. I’m very, very happy, the feeling I have in my body. I can’t wait to start.

What’s it like being Paul Pogba now, compared to when you were here at 18 or 19, in this indoor arena at the Academy?
Well, I was younger. Now I’m taller and bigger (laughs). It’s just like… as I told you… it looks like I went for a holiday and I came back home. I was meant to come back here. I feel this. I always had this United thing in my heart and that’s why I came back. I’m happy, just happy.

How have you changed as a player since you were here at United the first time around? What have you learned about your game, about yourself? How are you different?
I’m more experienced, I’ve won titles at Juventus. I’ve been playing with big players like when I started at Man United, of course. I came back. I’ve not come back from the Academy now; I went to play somewhere else and I came back, I would say, as a person, as an adult. I would say with experience, with more games, so I think that’s the difference.

Manchester United is delighted to announce that Paul Pogba has completed his transfer from Italian club Juventus. Paul joins on a five-year contract, with the option to extend for a further year.

PAUL POGBA PHOTO PAUL COOPER
Paul, 23, has been with Juventus for four seasons, making 124 appearances and scoring 28 goals. He joined the Bianconeri from United in 2012.

The midfielder has been capped by France on 38 occasions, scoring 6 goals and was a member of the recent squad that reached the final of Euro 2016.

Paul Pogba said:

“I am delighted to rejoin United. It has always been a club with a special place in my heart and I am really looking forward to working with José Mourinho. I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at Juventus and have some fantastic memories of a great club with players that I count as friends. But I feel the time is right to go back to Old Trafford. I always enjoyed playing in front of the fans and can’t wait to make my contribution to the team. This is the right club for me to achieve everything I hope to in the game.”

José Mourinho said:

“Paul is one of the best players in the world and will be a key part of the United team I want to build here for the future. He is quick, strong, scores goals and reads the game better than many players much older than he is. At 23, he has the chance to make that position his own here over many years. He is young and will continue to improve; he has the chance to be at the heart of this club for the next decade and beyond.”

Ryan Giggs Leave Manchester United,

Ryan Giggs leaves Manchester United | June 02, 2016
Ryan Giggs is to leave Manchester United, the club he has been with since the age of 14, to pursue his desire to be a manager.
– Giggs, 42, has played more times for the club than anyone else in history and is its most decorated player, having won every major honour in club football.

Ryan Giggs said: 
– “After 29 seasons at Manchester United as a player and assistant manager, I know winning is in the DNA of this club – giving youth a chance, and playing attacking and exciting football. It’s healthy to have high expectations, it’s right to expect to win. Manchester United expects, deserves, nothing less.
– “This is why it is a huge decision for me to step away from the club that has been my life since the age of 14. It has not been a decision that I have made lightly. I’ll take away so many special memories as well as a lifetime of experiences that will, I hope, serve me well in the future. However, the time feels right and, although I have no immediate plans to step into management, it is where I want to be.

–  “I’ve been extremely fortunate in having two great managerial mentors; first in Sir Alex, who I’ve spent the majority of my life working with and learning from and who I believe will remain as football’s greatest-ever manager and in more recent times, Louis van Gaal, whose CV speaks for itself. The knowledge I have gleaned from them has been invaluable.
– “I want to reiterate my thanks to the backroom staff and support teams at Manchester United I’ve worked with over the years. The results on the pitch are a reflection of the hard work off it. I would not have achieved the success I have without the dedication, sacrifice and commitment of these people in creating the best environment for the team to succeed.

– “I want to congratulate José Mourinho on his appointment as manager of the world’s biggest club. There are only a handful of proven winners at the very highest level and José is unquestionably one of them. I know the fans will welcome him. 

Message to the Fans
– “My final thank you is to the fans. I cannot begin to tell you how much I will miss walking out at Old Trafford in front of you. It’s extremely difficult to say goodbye after 29 years. I have loved every minute both as a player and assistant manager. The support you have always shown me has been phenomenal; thank you.
– “It’s time for a new chapter and a new challenge. I’m excited about the future – I’ve had the best apprenticeship into management anyone could ever ask for.”

Words from Executive vice-chairman, Ed Woodward: 
– “Ryan’s place in the history of Manchester United is assured. He has been a constant presence at the club since 1987 and, during his playing days, regularly delighted crowds; first with his dazzling wing play and later with his intelligence and ability to dictate a game.
– “He has tackled his coaching and management responsibilities with similar rigour and diligence. The experiences and discipline he developed at United will undoubtedly be a big help as he continues to learn his trade. He has all the attributes to be a terrific manager in the future. Everyone at the club wishes him well in his new career. He will be missed but will always be welcome at Manchester United.”

The 2016/17 Premier League fixture list was released on Wednesday morning and Manchester United will begin the new season with a trip to Bournemouth.

It will, of course, be Jose Mourinho’s first top-flight match in charge of the Reds and the Portuguese coach will be determined to start with a victory over Eddie Howe’s Cherries at the Vitality Stadium. United’s opening home clash is against Southampton in the second fixture.

The first Manchester derby has been scheduled for 10 September at Old Trafford – as you can see in the full fixture list below – and that pits Mourinho against the Blues’ new boss Pep Guardiola. Our new manager will also face rivals Liverpool at Anfield on 15 October before returning to former club Chelsea a week later.

Other standout fixtures include the Boxing Day match against Sunderland at Old Trafford, a trip to West Ham United’s new Olympic Stadium on 2 January and the final game against Crystal Palace, the club beaten by the Reds in this year’s FA Cup final, at Old Trafford.

As ever, it is worth highlighting that all dates released by the Premier League are very much subject to change, with broadcasters Sky Sports and BT Sport yet to decide which matches they will show live.

May 2016 Summary

*** heads up **

(a long sharing post maybe covering the whole of this month of May 2016.)

This section will be covering thoughts and writings about May 16-23th 2016 

Afternoon brothers and sisters in Christ and friends .Is been almost a week and half since i last shared on my anxiety and worry moment about my future and job opportunities chances as mention below or the post on May 4th. During that week i was feeling so unwell maybe because i was still sick or some stomach bug or some sort as i posted this Biblical verse
“Psalms 56:3-4 When I am afraid, i put my trust in you. In God , whose word I praise- in God I trust and am not afraid.”

during that time i pray, mediate and ponder this verse for the whole week as it was my key goal to live it out in the ministry and spiritual walk as ” not to be afraid and put trust in God alone in all circumstance and live it out that week as soon as that happen i received couple email from past chaplains friends and Peter James the CEO of SU QLD about the funding issue as it was just a minor case and there will be funding of course we NEED SCHOOL CHAPLAINS IN SCHOOL IN QUEENSLAND .. ( * sorry about the caps was just making a point )
By the end of the week i researched more information and wrote a similar blog post which you can read it on this  link  or this  article regarding tot he issue 
As most of you know is school chaplain week also known as chappy week .
Chappy Week

After that frantic- anxious moment i continue to pray and seek God in my studies at Brisbane School of Theology as i had just finished my paper essay work on Old Testament The Themes of the Pentateuch,. It was a tough essay to work on since have the elements of writings, research, thinking ,interpreting the Bible, looking at Biblical scholars, planning and structuring a proper essay format. I am glad is finish but that’s only one major essay for my Old Testament course as not to mention i have a upcoming exam in 2 weeks time on the historical books from 1-2 Samuel, Judges, 1-2 Kings and Joshua. 

Regarding to the commentary or extra reading i have decided to watch The Bible Project on those books as a guide for me to comprehend the books better into a visual before reading those books again. I know the exam will be a challenge but all challenge is worthy of the cause as not because i am studying at Bible College for pride or acknowledgement or fame more to the fact want to glorify Jesus and share my faith and testimony to all you brothers and sisters in Christ and friends to people who i meet from streets in Brisbane as much as i have the capacity to type here today and share about my personal experience to you all i am forever bless and grateful for Jesus for giving me life and that i am capable to live in this wonderful blessed country of Australia.

About John Calvin assignment i have to answer the following question

Assess the significance of Calvin’s Institutes of the Christian Religion for the spread of Reformed theology in the sixteenth century.

been a challenge for me personally have written around 2000 words not sure i i am on the right track but i am sure my Grammar and English is out of terms when i send a draft to my friend to have a look and his comments and feedback . His comments were
“There are many grammatical problems here and below. I suggest reading your sentences out loud to see if they make sense. “

Last May 23rd-29th 2016

This week is the last week of May and also the  last week of Semester One at Brisbane School of Theology . Is been a tough challenging six month of  joy and knowledge  to study Biblical theology and concepts of Old Testament Foundations and Church History to 1550. Learning new topics and knowledge each time i go to my classes on Tuesday and Friday. So much time spend on the quality from staff members at BST .

With excellent staff members from Richard and John guiding us along . I have been so beneficial and amazed at their teachings. For more details check out this link. As much learning and understand i decided to upload and share will you some of my notes . But it is password protected to access only.

I will try update this section after my exam next Tuesday (June 7th) and for more information check out the link above or contact me if you want a preview of the notes i cover at class and all tutorial lecture notes is covered by my lecturer. I hope the notes is sufficient to share and provide resources to better spread the gospel of Jesus story and how the church history and Old Testament Foundations work in a big picture to glorify Jesus in everything I do .  Sound simple to say or even type the words but in fact is a life long journey process , is not that easy actually we all endure and encounter different pathways to the person who you are right now. Hear me right now or for the first time or even know me well enough from a young childish shy boy.

Maybe is just me, after all i am different to everyone else in a unique way, not because i am special or different more to the fact i have a strong relationship with my Holy Spirit Jesus Christ. He is everything to me . Without any doubt he is the source of my life and source of yours. I am proud to be a Christian. Being a Christian is glorifying Jesus and living out a life that show Christ-like in my actions and behaviors and lifestyle. The way i am maybe different from anyone since everyone is unique and special with God’s creation. I can continue sharing and saying views about my personal life journey but this is just the only summary of my May 2016; what i have been up to since haven’t shared or emailed to most of you lately.

 


Finishing off my Calvin’s assignment by May 27th 2016
Thankful for Graham for helping and fixing up my Grammar and structure to a readable text of Calvin. I think i don’t need to write anymore just finish on Wed evening on the topic and now
 
 need to get ready for this preparation and continue to study for my Old Testament  Exam on June 7th 2016 please pray for me about it  so i can concentrate and focus on this coming study week and energy and rest in my studies. I tend to procrastinate and spend time on editing photos when i meant to be revising for Book of Joshua, 1-2 Samuel or maybe 1-2 Kings .


As a habit i procrastinate and spend time doing other stuff rather study for my Old Testament exam. I know i am not the best to concentrate and focus when i get distracted on my computer. I love watching football/soccer or photography videos when i am not doing anything. Sometimes this week i wander around New Farm and Valley to not study and just take photos. Is not the best time to do all this kind of stuff when my exam is unknown as to be concerned to know a historical understanding of King Solomon and some aspect of Book of Joshua and maybe the divided kingdoms in 1-2 Kings. I have done the note research and need to get it in my head and remember. I doubt is a trick in the question for the exam just need basic understanding and i will do fine. For all certain i will probably revise my notes again this week and before Tuesday of course.
Still puzzling and pondering about how to approach my exam i am glad and thankful for all the challengers and decisions i made this year so far. So far so good i guess is not because today is June 1st 2016 or that i am feeling quite nervous and scared that is already June 2016 already that is actually half of the year have arrive. JUNE so much time on my hand as i only have one exam this semester so far and that i basically finish my essays and writing all couple weeks ago which is a relive and great but i know all my friends at university still not finish until mid June which i will anxiously wait for them.
Now ++ June 2016 
Special announcement to be presented to you all soon but here a preview of what i have been updating in my free and leisure time. Is a new project i started couple years back when haven’t got the time yet but i will resume from last time. Example from the image but will outline more later update post sooooooon….
