A Liverpool legend in the making: Behind Virgil van Dijk’s remarkable rise to world’s best player “He can play in a lot of positions. I said when he first arrived that, for me, he is not a holding midfielder,” fellow Frenchman Henry told Sky Sports .”He can play in a lot of positions but that is where he is at his best. That was vintage Juve Pogba.”Every time Lingard was making that early run inside, he was occupying that position on the left.”When you go back on your right foot — I used to go on the left myself — you can ping a ball on the other side, you can play that reverse pass, you can play a cute one-two, you can dribble past people. As we saw, he did it all in the second half.”When he plays at that level he is almost unplayable and I think he changed the second half.”He went up to a certain level. That’s what you do as a captain. You say to your team-mates, ‘guys, follow me. I’ll show you the way.'”Great win, good begin of the year, c’mon Uniteeed  @ManUtd #mufc pic.twitter.com/Sdou35FVQ4 — Paul Pogba (@paulpogba) January 1, 2018 “When he plays like that and when he plays on the left, coming in and being kind of free, it’s very difficult to stop him,” Henry added.”Today he acted like a captain. That’s very important too.”Manchester United moved up to second in the table, two points ahead of Chelsea – who are due to play Arsenal on Wednesday – and 12 points adrift of neighbours Manchester City.Pogba and company face a match on Jan. 5, an FA Cup tie against Derby Country to close an insane run of fixtures over the festive period.

Alphaliner Capacity on Transpacific Route to Remain Flat

first_imgzoomIllustration. Image Courtesy: Pxhere under CC0 Creative Commons license Container capacity on the Transpacific route would remain unchanged this year as shipping lines currently do not plan any increases, according to Alphaliner.The carriers’ cautious approach marks the first time since 2009 that no new transpacific services are to be introduced on the route in the transpacific contract season, which starts on May 1, for the summer’s peak shipping season.Alphaliner said that Transpacific cargo volumes are expected to weaken this year, and eastbound liftings data for the first two months of the year already shows a reduction of -1.0%.On the Far East – USWC route, the total number of weekly services will be cut from 37 to 36 sailings from April, due to the withdrawal of the Zim Med Pacific (ZMP) service. Zim will then join the 2M on the Far East – PNW TP-9/Maple service and contribute four of the seven 8,400 TEU vessels to be deployed on the revamped loop.The partners of THE Alliance will combine their existing PS1 and PS2 loops into a new FP1 pendulum service, connecting North Europe, Asia and the US West Coast. The merged service will use 15 ships of 9,000 TEU, resulting in a small reduction in overall capacity of some 400 TEU weekly.However, THE Alliance will add a new PN4 service, using six classic Panamax ships with an average intake of 4,600 TEU. This additional capacity will nonetheless be offset by the downsizing of the carrier group’s existing PN3 service from the 13,300 TEU scale to 8,600 TEU, as the larger ships will be re-deployed to the Asia – Europe route, Alphaliner concluded.last_img read more
