Match Preview Both sides will be heading into their clash at St James’ Park with a point to prove, the Magpies looking to bounce back following their heavy 5-0 defeat to Leicester and Manchester United eager to pick themselves up after their worst start to a Premier League season.Bruce is set to take charge of Newcastle against his former club for the first time, with whom he spent nine years of his playing career from 1987-96.The Red Devils have endured a sorry start to their first full season under Solskjaer, made worse by their midweek 0-0 stalemate to AZ Alkmaar in the Europe League – and still searching for their first win on the road in 10 matches.A dreadful 1-1 draw with Arsenal at Old Trafford in Monday meant that United have suffered their worst start to a top-flight campaign in 30 years, picking up just nine points after seven games.They have won just twice – against Chelsea and Leicester – but the Red Devils have also lost to the likes of West Ham and Crystal Palace.They occupy 10th place in the league table heading into the weekend, miles adrift of rivals leaders Liverpool on 21 points, and Manchester City who are on 16.United have, on two occasions, accumulated 10 points at this stage of the season in 2018-19 and 2013-14. Those campaigns were helmed by Jose Mourinho and David Moyes respectively – with both being dismissed from their posts before the summer.Solskjaer will be welcoming the chance to take maximum points off the Magpies, who have struggled so far this season and sit in 19th place, having picked up just five points so far.Questions have steadily been raised about the managerial abilities of the Norwegian, and whether or not he is the right person to manage the Red Devils.Steve Bruce NewcastleThe Magpies are having issues of their own, boasting just one Premier League victory in seven games, with Newcastle fans already divided by the appointment of ex-Sunderland coach Bruce as manager.Newcastle’s woes are off-pitch in addition to on, with supporters continuously agitated with owner Mike Ashley.“As managers we don’t want to give anyone any favours when we play each other,” Solskjaer said on his meeting with Bruce.“Brucey’s going to set up a team to win. I’m going to set up a team to try to win. We’re going there, it’s a great stadium to play at. We’re looking forward to the game.”“We’re not in the ’90s now,” he added, stating his intentions of moving on from the past and placing a focus on the future.  “It’s a different era, a different group that we’re building. We know there are going to be ups and downs. I’m ready to see these boys blossom.“There’s not many clubs with our stature that play the young players that we do. They’ve got a chance to come through and we’re sure some of these will be part of a successful team.” Check out Goal’s Premier League 2019-20 fantasy football podcast for game tips, debate and rivalries.last_img read more

Discount Car Truck Rentals to pay 700000 over misleading advertising

OTTAWA — Discount Car & Truck Rentals Ltd. is paying a $700,000 penalty after reaching an agreement with the Competition Bureau over misleading advertising about its prices.Following an investigation, the federal agency found that Discount advertised rental prices that were unattainable due to mandatory fees that were added during the purchasing process.It also determined that advertised rebates suggesting consumers would get a discount on their total bill were not applied to mandatory fees.In addition, various fees described as mandatory government taxes or surcharges were in fact imposed by the company to recover costs.Discount is the fourth vehicle rental company to conclude agreements to address so-call drip pricing, which has resulted in a total of almost $6 million in penalties.The others are Avis/Budget, Hertz/Dollar Thrifty and Enterprise. read more
