    DURING the international break in September, Harry Maguire was asked how it felt to be Cristiano Ronaldo’s captain. Manchester United had just announced the return of their geriatric Galactico and Maguire, away on England duty, smiled sheepishly and dodged the question, as if thinking to himself, ‘F*** me, how IS that actually going to work?’ 2Cristiano Ronaldo could be the captain that Manchester United needCredit: EPA 2The new boss could take the armband off Harry Maguire after his strugglesCredit: AFP Even a seasoned England international such as Maguire can be starstruck by the presence of a bona fide footballing god. And while Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, master of nostalgia, gleefully hailed Ronaldo’s sudden second coming, the Norwegian will have instantly recognised an even sharper focus on his own future. Ronaldo does this. Even at Manchester United, he cranks up the thermometer. He did not make or break Solskjaer. Three crucial late goals in as many Champions League matches might have briefly extended his tenure. Yet the Portuguese also played in each of United’s recent humiliations by Leicester, Liverpool, Manchester City and...

    Getty The Giants pulled off an impressive come from behind victory on the road against the Saints. However, they lost another captain on their defense. The New York Giants pulled off an impressive come from behind 27-21 victory in overtime over the New Orleans Saints on Sunday, October 3. But not before they lost another captain on their defense. This time, it was underperforming safety Jabrill Peppers, who went down with a hamstring injury, before being ruled out for the rest of the game in the fourth-quarter. Injury Update: S Jabrill Peppers (hamstring) has been ruled out. — Dan Salomone (@Dan_Salomone) October 3, 2021 Peppers endured a rough first-half in pass coverage and was a non-factor against the running game. Peppers did not appear in the second-half, which initially led some reporters to speculate he had been benched. However, the Giants ultimately announced Peppers as the latest starter to suffer a hamstring injury. Keep in mind, the Giants were already without two top receivers in Sterling Shepard and Darius Slayton due to hamstring issues as well. This duo...
    Former New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has denied rumors that he abandoned his dog Captain and said some people 'can't just get the facts straight.' The rumors started after Cuomo left Captain, a Northern Inuit dog, in the state executive mansion while he stayed at his sister's Westchester home.  The Albany Times Union reported he had been asking staff at the mansion if anyone would like to keep Captain, a shepherd, Siberian and malamute mix. But Cuomo turned to Twitter to deny the claims at 10:10pm Monday night - less than two hours before his term as governor ended. 'Some people just can't get the facts straight,' he wrote.   'Yes, I was downstate monitoring storm response for a few days, but Captain and I are a man and his dog.  'He is part of our family and that’s the way it will always be,' he wrote on the social media platform.   Cuomo stepped down on Monday, in the aftermath of a report by the state attorney general that found he sexually harassed 11 women.  While some Tweeter users were supportive to Cuomo,...
    Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D-NY) has found himself in the in the midst of another scandal. According to the Times Union, the governor, who has been residing with one of his sisters in Westchester County as his tenure comes to a close, asked staff members at the Executive Mansion if someone wanted to keep his dog Captain. The “high-strung” shepherd mix has reportedly been staying at the state-owned residence since Cuomo moved out last week, as the governor’s resignation will become official on Monday night. The Times Union added that State Police sources claimed a mansion employee took home the dog, who “has nipped a few people since Cuomo adopted him in 2018,” but eventually returned him. While Richard Azzopardi, a spokesman for the governor, has denied the allegation, saying, “Someone offered to watch him for a few days while the transition was ongoing,” dog lovers on Twitter were horrified by the report: This may be the most asshole thing Cuomo has ever done. You move out and leave your dog behind? What a complete twat. https://t.co/KFuTVly3Hq — Liz Mair (@LizMair) August 23, 2021 What...

    A local prosecutor on Friday filed a total of 63 felony criminal charges against three employees over a July 2018 tourist boat accident on a Missouri lake that killed 17 people. The charges were filed in Stone County against the captain, the general manager and the manager on duty the day of the accident for the Ride the Ducks attraction on Table Rock Lake near the tourist mecca of Branson. The charges against captain Kenneth Scott McKee, of Verona, general manager Curtis Lanham, of Galena, and manager on duty Charles Baltzell, of Kirbyville, came seven months after a federal judge dismissed charges filed by federal prosecutors, concluding that they did not have jurisdiction.

    OWEN FARRELL hasn't been picked to captain the Lions over fears it could expose the squad to unnecessary flak. The England skipper's leadership style came under-fire during his country's worst ever Six Nations campaign this year. 3England captain Owen Farrell hasn't been picked to skipper the Lions Fly-half Farrell struggled for form and ex players queued-up to demand he was stripped of the armband. So on this Lions tour in South Africa, boss Warren Gatland made the call to remove Farrell from the spotlight and let his rugby do the talking. And he did the same with his England and Saracens teammate Maro Itoje - a guy who Gatland himself bigged-up as a possible tour leader. Six guys - tour skipper Alun Wyn Jones, his shock replacement Conor Murray, Ken Owens, Iain Henderson, Jamie George and Stuart Hogg - have all skippered the Lions in 2021. Lifting the lid for the very first time on why Farrell and Itoje were behind the others in the pecking order, Gats said: "It was almost a little bit like not wanting to...
    MANCHESTER UNITED have reportedly been given a clear path to sign Sergio Ramos after Paris Saint-Germain dropped out of the race. RMC claims Mauricio Pochettino is keen on signing the former Real Madrid captain, whose shock Bernabeu departure was confirmed this week. 3Man Utd lead the race for Sergio Ramos after PSG dropped out due to his wage demandsCredit: Getty However, Ramos is demanding a two-year contract on wages worth £200,000-a-week. And PSG are refusing to enter talks unless Ramos, 35, has a change of heart and drops his demands. That means United could now be frontrunners for the veteran defender after he also refused to entertain an offer from former side Sevilla. Ramos is seen as an ideal partner for Red Devils captain Harry Maguire. And United have shown in the past they are not afraid of handing out large contracts for the right player. Ramos played 671 times for Real after a £23million move from Sevilla in 2005,...

    Vanessa Bryant secured a legal victory Friday in her lawsuit against Los Angeles County over deputies and firefighters who allegedly shared grim photos of the helicopter crash in which Kobe Bryant and their daughter died. A federal judge ruled her attorneys should have more time to pursue their investigation because they have been “diligent” in their efforts to pursue their allegations of misconduct. The move gives the widow more time to depose and investigate, and pushed a trial from November to February 2022. Vanessa Bryant’s lawyers argued that while initial information shared by the Sheriff’s Department showed eight deputies shared images, evidence turned over now shows those possessing photos at the scene number at least 18 county employees while 66 county employees know about the misconduct. Lawyers for the county accused Bryant of conducting a fishing expedition that diverted first responders from their jobs and subjecting them to harassment after she sued and publicly identified several of them. U.S. District Court Judge John F. Walter, however, allowed the delay in his ruling Friday, rejecting the county’s argument. He explained...

    MIKEL ARTETA has a huge decision to make over whether Arsenal skipper Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang can lead the line in his starting XI. In my own mind I have been weighing up what he offers in the role and comparing it to what Alexandre Lacazette offers and, in truth, trying to convince myself that our Gabonese talisman edged it.  5Arsenal captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang hasn't impressed in recent games with his work rateCredit: Rex Admittedly the thought process will undoubtedly have been influenced by the fact that the club has committed to Aubameyang and him to them. Meanwhile French forward Lacazette has seemingly not been offered a new deal with his contract to expire in 2022. No Arsenal supporter wants to see another Mesut Ozil situation on the horizon, so I am sure most would love to see a happy Auba, smiling on the pitch and scoring for fun. However, this is perhaps not the player we have at present. Against Tottenham and again in the second half comeback at the London Stadium, Lacazette illustrated quite clearly the attributes required of a...

    BEIRUT (AP) — Interpol has issued a wanted notice for two Russians and a Portuguese man over explosive material that had been shipped to Beirut and stored at the city’s port for six years until it exploded in August, the state-run National News Agency reported Tuesday. The Aug. 4 explosion killed 200 people, injured thousands and caused wide destruction in Beirut. NNA said the Interpol-issued Red Notices were for the owner and captain of the Rhosus, the ship that carried the 2,750 tons of ammonium nitrate to Lebanon in 2013, as well as a Portuguese nitrate trader who visited the port’s warehouse in Beirut in 2014 where the material was stored. The notice is a non-binding request to law enforcement agencies worldwide to locate and provisionally arrest a fugitive. It is not an arrest warrant and does not require authorities to arrest a wanted suspect. Lebanon’s state prosecutor, Ghassan Khoury, had asked Interpol to issue the notices, NNA said.

But star forward Mo Salah did - and revealed he was upset but understanding over Klopp's decision to hand the armband elsewhere. Salah, 28, told AS: "Honestly, I was very disappointed. I was hoping to be the captain, but it’s a coach’s decision. I accept it." Despite the Egyptian's reveal, Klopp went on to admit striker Divock Origi, 25, should he been the captain instead.

    A former Houston Police Department Captain who is accused of pulling a gun on a repairman over fake ballot allegations was one of 20 investigators hired to overturn the election by controversial GOP megadonor Steven Hotze who previously called for George Floyd protesters to be shot.  Mark Anthony Aguirre, 63, was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon on Tuesday - almost two months after he pointed a firearm at an air conditioning technician he believed was engaged in a mass voting fraud operation. The alleged assault took place as Aguirre tailed the unidentified workman for four days as part of a plot to find evidence to support a false conspiracy theory that widespread voter fraud was going on in Harris County, Texas, prosecutors say.  The former cop, who was fired from the force 17 years ago, was allegedly paid $266,400 by prominent Republican power-broker Hotze through his group the Liberty Center For God and County to carry out the investigation.  Hotze appears to have enlisted Aguirre's help in at least one other effort to toss American votes, with...
    Houston police were left wondering what happened to one of their own Tuesday after arresting a former captain who allegedly ran a man off the road and held him at gunpoint, believing he was in possession of hundreds of thousands of fraudulent election ballots. The former squad leader, Mark Anthony Aguirre, 63, allegedly believed so strongly in baseless claims of massive voter fraud plaguing Harris County’s presidential election that he was willing to commit crimes himself to substantiate it. The man he allegedly surveilled for four days and held hostage was not a scheming mastermind of political crime, however, just an air conditioner repairman. “He crossed the line from dirty politics to commission of a violent crime and we are lucky no one was killed. His alleged investigation was backward from the start, first alleging a crime had occurred and then trying to prove it happened,” Harris County District Attorney Kim Ogg said in a press release. Aguirre is charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. The retired policeman allegedly used his SUV to ram the back of the...

The National Transportation Safety Board said not having a night watch led to the fire spreading quickly, trapping victims below deck, the Associated Press reports.

    Graphic photos of Kobe Bryant’s crash scene are now at the center of a retaliation claim by a Los Angeles fire captain. Capt.

    A Los Angeles County fire captain who was at the scene of the helicopter crash that killed NBA star Kobe Bryant and eight others has filed a retaliation lawsuit against the county, alleging he was demoted for refusing to fully cooperate with an investigation into graphic photos taken of the crash site. The lawsuit, filed Wednesday by Capt. Tony Imbrenda, marks the latest fallout from the photo scandal that embroiled the county’s fire agency and the Sheriff’s Department. The Times reported this year that sheriff’s deputies shared gruesome images of the scene in the foothills above Calabasas. Imbrenda, who served as a spokesman for the fire department in the days after the crash and later was stripped of that title during the investigation, alleges his career prospects were damaged severely by the cloud of suspicion cast over him during the inquiry. “Imbrenda had an impeccable reputation in the Southern California PIO community with extensive earning potential in his post fire service career,” the lawsuit said. “That potential is now totally destroyed.” The Fire Department did not respond to...
