first_imgMANCHESTER UNITED welcome Tottenham to Old Trafford on Wednesday as United look to bounce back from a disappointing 2-2 draw with Aston Villa at the weekend.Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team are floundering in ninth but could welcome Scott McTominay and Nemanja Matic back to their injury ravaged midfield as Jose Mourinho returns to Old Trafford for the first time since his United sacking in December 2018.3 How Man Utd could lineup vs TottenhamPaul Pogba is still out having been abroad recovering from an ankle injury and Solskjaer was disappointed to have to talk about injuries again.He said: “You know I don’t want to talk about these injuries we’ve had, but of course when you get Scott back, when you get Paul back… we have been light in midfield because we had Scott and Nemanja and Paul out for such a long time and that’s affected us.”Scott and Nemanja are touch-and-go, so let’s get this [Tuesday’s] training session out of the way.3″We’ve got more games than this one, so I can’t just look at one game. We’ve got to look at the long term.”We will give the players a training session today and see how they are, everyone.”Of course, Sunday is also still in people’s heads so it is not going to be a hard session, but we will have a good team out.”We have the facilities and people behind the scenes working really hard to get players fit.”MOST READ IN FOOTBALLTHROUGH ITRobbie Keane reveals Claudine’s father was ’50-50′ in coronavirus battleTOP SELLERGavin Whelan has gone from League of Ireland to David Beckham’s InstagramExclusiveRIYAD RAIDMan City’s Riyad Mahrez has three luxury watches stolen in £500,000 raidPicturedAN EYEFULMeet Playboy model and football agent Anamaria Prodan bidding to buy her own clubI SAW ROORodallega saw Rooney ‘drinking like madman’ & Gerrard ‘on bar dancing shirtless’NEXT STEPJonny Hayes set to move to English Championship having been let go by CelticREF RELEASEDChampions League ref Vincic released by cops after arrest in prostitution raidKEANE DEALEx Man United youth ace David Jones says Roy Keane negotiated a contract for himIf McTominay is fit for the Spurs clash after his ankle injury, he will likely slot in alongside Fred at the base of midfield with Andreas Pereira pushing forward to take Juan Mata’s number 10 role.However, Solskjaer could really shake things up and throw both players back into the fold in an alternate XI.There is also a chance the misfiring Anthony Martial could be benched giving youngster Mason Greenwood a chance to shine in the Prem.3Jose Mourinho says Manchester United is in his history book as Spurs prepare to take on the Red Devilslast_img read more

Romney Campaign Focuses On New Trio Of States

first_imgRomney Campaign Focuses On New Trio Of States This is part of the KHN Morning Briefing, a summary of health policy coverage from major news organizations. Sign up for an email subscription. With just days to go until Election Day, the Romney campaign sees possibilities to win in Pennsylvania, Michigan and Minnesota, while pro-Obama groups launch new ads about Medicare and women’s health.The Washington Post: Romney Forces See Pennsylvania, Michigan And Minnesota Ripe For Turning RedAfter a season dominated by talk of Ohio, Virginia and Florida, Campaign 2012 suddenly shifted focus to a new trio of states Wednesday amid a new verbal battle about which candidate is better positioned to win on Tuesday (Balz, Merkon and Kane, 10/31).The New York Times’ Political Memo: In Dwindling Days Of The Race, Romney Takes A Softer TackThere are plenty of carry-overs, of course: he dings President Obama’s health care law as cumbersome and bemoans the size of the federal debt as immoral, as he has since 2011, when he entered the race. But even if the extent of the evolution is up for argument, there is little debate that Mr. Romney is finishing the presidential campaign as a milder candidate than when he started (Barbaro, 10/31).The Washington Post: Ad Watch: Pro-Obama Group Ties Romney To Medicare FraudWhat it says: “[Rick] Scott ran a company that paid a record fine for committing Medicare fraud. Then, as governor, Scott cut millions from health care. Romney was director of a company that stole millions from Medicare. Now, Romney’s plan would end Medicare as we know it.” What it means: A new Kaiser Family Foundation poll finds that Romney is closing the gap with President Obama on who would better handle Medicare. This ad seeks to widen it by linking Medicare cuts to Medicare fraud (Weiner, 10/31).The Hill: Planned Parenthood Launches $853K Ad Buy Against RomneyPlanned Parenthood’s political wing is making what could be its final attempt to alienate female voters from Mitt Romney before the election. The Planned Parenthood Action Fund (PPAF) is spending $853,000 to run a 60-second radio ad on Colorado, Ohio and Virginia airwaves until Tuesday. The ad accuses Romney of holding views on women that “seem like they’re from the 1950s.” It also paints Obama as the right choice on the economy (Viebeck, 10/31).last_img read more
