    I watched an entire show on a group of guys that do this and all I can say is WOW!!! Sadly, the show I watched last year.. well the group lost one guy. They take a day or more to strategically plan and sometimes at the last minute they realize it wont be possible. Amazing, takes talent and guts for sure!

Ronaldo was, as usual, his exceptional self. Breaking records for fun. That 80m pounds for his signing is now a bargain!

    @Vincent Andrew, it's been absolutely brilliant! Pogba starting tonight as well! We need a world class centre-back (I would have loved to have seen Varane) but all in all we're moving in the right direction. Mourinho has brought some much needed charisma to the club! I'm very happy! :-)

    The first 5 fixtures may change yet (down to the TV schedule) but I would imagine the manager would like a dominant start, so it's possible.
    Mark Murray
    01/07/2016 #9 Mark Murray
    He left because he felt (at the time) he was a better player than Paul Scholes. It infuriated him when SAF brought Scholes back out of retirement. In hindsight, maybe SAF should have given him more opportunities but the past is past.
    Vincent Andrew
    01/07/2016 #8 Vincent Andrew
    #7 Pogba will be a good buy! How did United let him go in the first place? I think United must be quick off the mark when the season starts. We usually start slowly but I'm hoping that will change. Looking at our first five fixtures, do you think we can get at least 10 points @Mark Murray?
    Mark Murray
    01/07/2016 #7 Mark Murray
    He's made 2 decent signings so far, if he can get Varane and Pogba and offload 80% of the dead wood currently in the first team, the good times could return in the next couple of years. He has a big job to sort it all out but he has the expertise and the clout to improve the squad. Fingers crossed he can do it! :-)

There's just one thing, to make sure you are being read I think it would be ok as you say not to focus on likes or shares, but I would definitely try to put attention on feedback since some of the comments will make writers grow and also try to write something that of course inspires themselves but also will be read by followers and keep them engaged.

France i can see doing well, They won the world cup last time they hosted so could be a big advantage for the French, but as you said, they haven´t had a great start to this year so far!

I loved his use of a piece of sand for every thousand years. I bet he blew the audience away because they probably weren't expecting such a long and well thought out answer. He was iconic- yes because of his career in boxing but also much of what you wrote about that we never heard much about over the years. Your points on diversity- I couldn't agree more.

    this one man made more of an impression on society then the Beatles Managed as a collective, a true inspiration and an amazing man. he was a wordsmith, a poet, a fighter (not just in the ring), a leader, A Hero. He will be forever missed and forever remembered in history! He fought Parkinson´s for years and now he finally gets his peace. Rest well Sir, your fight is finally over.

    I´ll finish on a Spoken poem by the man himself, quoted from before his first championship fight with Sonny Liston in 1965 after winning 19 straight fights to get the title shot.

    "Now clay swings with the right, what a beautiful swing,
    And raises the bear straight out of the ring,
    Liston is rising and the ref wears a frown,
    For he can't start counting till Liston comes down,
    Now Liston disappears from view the crowd is getting frantic,
    But our radar stations picked him up somewhere over the Atlantic,
    Who would have thought when they came to the fight,
    That they'd witness the launching of a human satellite,
    Yes the crowd did not dream when they laid down their money,
    That they would see a total eclipse of the sonny"

    RIP Muhammed Ali, the greatest of all time

    Nice post. My mom had the opportunity to meet him briefly back in the day while working at the St. Regis Café in New York. She always says his hand was bigger than her face!

    Had no idea Austria had a stamp made in his honor, do you own that one @Oliver McGee, PhD, MBA, CFRM, AFWCI? It’s incredible. Thanks for the effort that you put into this nice tribute to this great guy!
