Former Manchester United defender Danny Higginbotham gave his verdict on Paul Pogba and Marcus Rashford’s strong form.Since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s appointment as an interim coach at United, Pogba has managed six goals and five assists in nine appearances and produced another brilliant display to assist Rashford for the match-winner against Leicester City on Sunday.Meanwhile, Rashford himself has found the net six times since Solskjaer moved him into his preferred centre-forward role.“They’ve got their best players playing in their best positions and it’s proving hugely successful for them,” Higginbotham told Sky Sports.“Obviously, there are still question marks over the defensive side of the team, but they are scoring so many goals.“You’ve got Marcus Rashford playing in his favourite position through the middle and he is going from strength to strength. The run he is on at the moment is unbelievable.“And then there’s Paul Pogba. He’s now looking like the player that is one of the best midfielders in the world and he’s been given the freedom to go and express himself.”Nine wins and a draw have enabled United to reach the fifth round of the FA Cup and close the gap to the top-four in the Premier League table to just two points under Solskjaer.Higginbotham added: “You’ve got to give Ole Gunnar Solskjaer unbelievable credit. “Everything he touches turns to gold.Liverpool legend Nicol slams Harry Maguire’s Man United form Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Steve Nicol believes Harry Maguire has made some “horrendous mistakes” recently, and has failed to find his best form since joining Manchester United.“I’ve heard a number of people saying anybody could have gone in and done that. No, they couldn’t, I’m sorry but they couldn’t. It doesn’t work like that.“What he’s done is he’s gone in there and looked at the team. What you see with the top managers and we see it all around world football, play your best players in their best positions and build a team around them in order to get the best out of them.”As for whether the Red Devils can snatch a top-four spot, Higginbotham said: “I think so and that’s something we wouldn’t have said a couple of months ago.“You have to give Solskjaer great credit because United are now playing to their strengths.”Rashford was named United’s Player of the Month for his strong performances in January.Horn Hill ➡️ Castle Black ➡️ The Citadel ➡️ Winterfell ➡️ Manchester 🏆Thanks for coming all this way to present @MarcusRashford with his #MUFC POTM award, @JohnBradleyWest! 😁 pic.twitter.com/mWz6Uovznh— Manchester United (@ManUtd) February 7, 2019

2020 BMW 745e xDrive review: A plush plug-in with power and presence Share your voice Post a comment 1:25 Now playing: Watch this: 2019 BMW X7 first drive: Big-time Bavarian More From Roadshow 2019 BMW X5 xDrive50i review: A potent and tech-rich SUV 42 Photos BMW X5 M and X6 M: The dynamic duo Tags 0 Enlarge ImageBMW’s X6 sports activity vehicle has been driving a wedge between enthusiasts since 2008, and now it’s entering its third generation. BMW BMW’s X6 “sports activity vehicle” has been both a success for the brand and a wildly polarizing model since it made its debut back in 2008. Since then, it’s seen several refreshes, including a second generation which came out in 2014, but it’s high time that BMW came out with a new version.Thankfully that’s exactly what it’s doing with the third-generation 2020 BMW X6, which the company announced on Tuesday. The new car has all the same lifted coupe on big wheels styling that customers want but gets the same excellent upgrades that we saw on its sister model, the X5 SUV.The 2020 X6 will be available in three flavors, depending on how much performance you need and how much cash you’re willing to part with. The base model is the sDrive40i, followed by the xDrive40i and the M50i. Don’t let that M in M50i fool you though. This is just an M Performance trim level and not a full-fat M vehicle.The sDrive40i is rear-wheel drive and makes a healthy 335 horsepower and 330 pound-feet of torque. The xDrive40i is similar but also drives the front wheels. The M50i model is where things start to get really spicy though because its 4.4-liter turbocharged V8 produces 523 horsepower and 553 lb-ft of torque. That’s a lot of jam, friends.Power in all models is sent through BMW’s eight-speed automatic transmission. Nothing shocking there. Speaking of shocking though, BMW’s X6 is equipped with active roll stabilization which is powered by high-voltage electric swivel motors that work to smooth out rough pavement and keeps the SAV flatter in the corners, despite its tall bulk.Enlarge ImageThe 2020 X6 gets the massive kidney grilles that are currently adorning the noses of the X7 and X5, but these ones are illuminated. BMW Also on the options list for xDrive models is active four-wheel steering. This is thankfully an individual option and not bundled with other stuff, because making a big SUV more maneuverable in tight spaces should be of interest to everyone. Buyers can also opt for height-adjustable air suspension at all four corners, which should add further comfort to the Bimmer’s ride.The interior of the 2020 X6 has a few exciting updates including a panoramic glass roof that’s 83% larger than previous sunroof offerings. It can also be had with a feature that BMW is calling the Sky Lounge. This takes your sexy glass roof and adds around 15,000 individual points of light (think Rolls-Royce Starlight headliner) that look like a night sky.If having a fancy glass roof isn’t enough for you, BMW is allowing buyers to add an optional glass shifter, iDrive control knob, start-stop button and volume control knob. You can also get heated and cooled cupholders and a wireless charging pad, but you’re going to pay for them.The X6 gets the latest version of iDrive, which is still one of the best infotainment suites in the business as well as Live Cockpit Professional. This allows the BMW — among other things — to detect who is driving the car and adjust a large number of settings to their tastes automatically.One of the other more interesting optional features on the X6 is called Back-up Assistant. This system stores the steering inputs you made to get into a parking space and when engaged, will mirror these movements while you modulate the throttle and brakes to help make getting out of a space easier. It sounds cool, at least in theory, but we’ll have to test it in person before we pass judgment. It’s a part of the larger Parking Assistance Package.Enlarge ImageThe new X6’s interior is typical BMW but can be had with a number of glass touches including a starry panoramic glass roof. BMW When it comes to more safety-oriented driver assistance systems, the X6 can be had with just about all the bells and whistles you could want. There are plenty of standard features on-hand thanks to the Active Driving Assistant which includes blind-spot warning, lane departure warning, rear collision detection with cross-traffic alert, frontal collision warning which detects pedestrians and cyclists and speed limit information.The optional Driving Assistance Professional package adds more features which, in our opinion, should be standard for a car in the X6’s price category. These include adaptive cruise control with stop and go traffic capability and lane-keep assist. It also adds Extended Traffic Jam Assistant which augments the adaptive cruise system and only works on limited-access highways and freeways at speeds under 40 mph.Outside, the X6 is slightly larger than the model it replaces in every dimension except height, where it’s just under an inch shorter than its predecessor. One of the most significant visual changes and the one bound to make a polarizing vehicle even more polarizing is the premiere of BMW’s light-up kidney grille. That’s right, in addition to being HUGE, it’s also illuminated so now even people in passing aircraft will be able to see that you’re driving a new BMW.The rest of the exterior moves the model in-line with BMW’s current design language and is generally better-looking than the outgoing second-generation car, in our opinion.Pricing for the base model sDrive40i starts at a rather robust $65,295 including destination. From there it’s a small leap of $2,300 to get the all-wheel drive xDrive40i and a much bigger jump all the way to $86,645 for the V8-powered M50i version. BMW expects the 2020 X6 to hit showrooms in November of 2019. BMW’s 2020 X6 is faster, fancier and smarter than ever SUVs Coupes BMW
TIBThe Transparency International Bangladesh (TIB) criticised the proposed budget for keeping windows to whiten black money, calling it “unconstitutional”, reports UNB.”Buying flats, land procurement and investing in economic zones and high-tech parks with black money is like legalising corruption for the next five years,” TIB executive director Iftekharuzzaman said in a statement on Friday.TIB noted that the move contradicts the zero-tolerance policy against corruption declared by the prime minister.Iftekharuzzaman dubbed the initiative “unconstitutional, unethical, and discriminatory”.Finance minister AHM Mustafa Kamal placed a Tk 5231.90 billion budget, the biggest-ever in Bangladesh’s history, for the next fiscal on Thursday.TIB, however, appreciated the budget for expanding area of social security.But Iftekharuzzaman pointed out that it lacks specific initiative to reform the bank sector which is already in a grave crisis due to record loan defaulters, irregularity and corruption.
