Manchester United are ‘far better placed’ to win Premier League title under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer than Jose Mourinho, says Gary Neville

Manchester United are currently in second (Photo by Ash Donelon/Manchester United via Getty Images)Gary Neville has taken a dig at Jose Mourinho by insisting Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has a ‘far better’ chance of ending the club’s wait for a Premier League title due to the new-found spirit and harmony at Old Trafford. Mourinho was appointed in 2016 to end United’s wait for a title since Sir Alex Ferguson’s retirement but he departed in late 2018 having failed to deliver. Solskjaer is yet to win silverware in his two years at the Theatre of Dreams but the Norwegian has stabilised the club and supporters are happier with the style of play at the club, as well as the progress in results. And Neville believes Solskjaer has put his former club in a far stronger position than Mourinho eve...

What the Surprising Golden Globe Winners Say About the Oscar Race

The 2021 COVID-delayed, virtual Golden Globes show was a weird one. Popular four-time hosts Amy Poehler and Tina Fey, anchoring Los Angeles and New York, struck a dystopian chord: They compared the show to “The Hunger Games” as they played to dark, socially distanced rooms of “smoking hot” first responders in black masks. No wonder the event seemed muted. The two comediennes, like everyone else participating in the evening, knew that the 87 fractious members of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association were reeling from a series of Los Angeles Times articles that allege the wealthy organization continues to be influenced by those in Hollywood hoping to score awards, while paying many of their members handsomely. “It’s all a scam invented by a big red carpet to sell more carpets,” said Fey.

Louise Redknapp often feels mum-guilt over her parenting (Picture: Getty Images)Louise Redknapp has slammed the mum-shamers for ‘judging’ her whenever she enjoyed a night out following her split from ex-husband Jamie Redknapp.  The former Eternal singer split from retired footballer Jamie in 2018 after more than 19 years of marriage.  They share sons Charley, 16, and Beau, 12, and, while they have been co-parenting amicably, Louise feels she got the brunt of backlash for simply leaving the kids at home to go out with friends in the months after their marriage ended.  In an extract from her new book, You’ve Got This: And Other Things I Wish I Had Known, which has been exclusively shared with Metro.co.uk, Louise writes: ‘Sometimes I wonder if this is even possible!

Here are the false or misleading claims Donald Trump made in his CPAC speech

Summary List PlacementFormer President Donald Trump spoke at the Conservative Political Action Conference in Orlando, Florida on Sunday, his first speech since leaving the White House last month. During his remarks, Trump hinted at a 2024 run, said he would not be forming a new party, and targeted Republicans who had supported his impeachment.
