 Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan has declared a state of emergency in three states after a series of deadly attacks by Islamist militant groups.

The military will take "all necessary action" to "put an end to the impunity of insurgents and terrorists" in Borno, Adamawa, and Yobe, he said.

Mr Jonathan also ordered more troops to be sent to the north-eastern states.

Militants from Boko Haram have been blamed for most of the violence, which has left 2,000 people dead since 2010.

The Islamist group, whose name means "Western education is forbidden" in the local Hausa language, is fighting to overthrow the government and create an Islamic state in the north.

Nigeria - a multi-ethnic nation of more than 160 million people - is also affected by a spate of conflicts over land, religion and oil.

Sir Alex Ferguson's Leaving Speech in Full HD
 "I've got absolutely no script in my mind, I'm just going to ramble on and hope I get to the core of what this football club has meant to me.

"First of all, it's a thank you to Manchester United. Not just the directors, not just the medical staff, not just the coaching staff, the players or the supporters, it's all of you. You have been the most fantastic experience of my life.

"I have been very fortunate. I've been able to manage some of the greatest players in the country, let alone Manchester United. All these players here today have represented our club the proper way - they've won the championship in a fantastic fashion. Well done to the players.

"My retirement doesn't mean the end of my life with the club. I'll be able to now enjoy watching them rather than suffer with them.

"But, if you think about it, those last-minute goals, the comebacks, even the defeats, are all part of this great football club of ours. It's been an unbelievable experience for all of us, so thank you for that.

"I'd also like to remind you that when we had bad times here, the club stood by me, all my staff stood by me, the players stood by me. Your job now is to stand by our new manager. That is important.

"Before I start bubbling, I just want to pay tribute to Paul Scholes, who retires today. He's unbelievable; one of the greatest players this club has ever had and will ever have.

"Paul we wish you a good retirement and I know you'll be around annoying me! Also I'd like to wish Darren Fletcher a speedy comeback to our club.

"The players... I wish the players every success in the future. You know how good you are, you know the jersey you're wearing, you know what it means to everyone here and don't ever let yourself down. The expectation is always there.

"I'm going home, well, I'm going inside for a while, and I want to say thank you again from all the Ferguson family. They're all up there, 11 grandchildren - thank you."

Football / Rooney wants out, Ferguson reveals
« on: May 12, 2013, 11:15:45 PM »
Ferguson is retiring. That has made news all week. What people did not know was that Manchester United Striker Rooney wants to leave Old trafford at the end of this season.

Rooney was missing in the 2-1 win over Swansea City. Ferguson had this to say:

"I don't think Wayne was keen to play simply because he's asked for a transfer," he said. "I think he wants to think things through in his mind; I think that's a good idea.

"We're not going to let him go. I think he's maybe a bit frustrated that he's been taken off once or twice in the last few weeks."

The Scot however revealed to the BBC that they turned down his offer and gave him time to think about his decision. United are keen on offering him a new contract.

Come on Rooney, no more money for you, Benzema is coming!!!

Football / Mourhino devastated by Ferguson exit
« on: May 11, 2013, 03:52:47 AM »

Real Madrid Coach Jose Mourhino has admitted that he was devatsted to hear that Sir Alex Ferguson was retiring at the end of the 2012/2013 season. He said that Sir Alex Ferguson personally called to inform him of the decision.

"When Sir Alex called me to give me the honour of knowing from him his decision, I was surprised and sad," he said in an interview with Sky Sports.

"It will be difficult for me, and I think all managers, to go to Old Trafford and play against Manchester United without this mythical figure waiting for us.

"At the same time, I was happy to feel his emotion, and pride for such an amazing career.”

United face Swansea City on Sunday in what will be Ferguson's last home game in charge of the club but Mourinho said he would be too emotional to watch the match.

Methinks this guy is just too sad/disappointed that he didn't get the top job at the theatre of Dreams.

Football / David Moyes named United Manager
« on: May 09, 2013, 07:37:31 PM »
The speculation on who is going to replace outgoing Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has ended with the appointment of Everton manager David Moyes.

Ferguson had this to say about his successor: "When we discussed the candidates that we felt had the right attributes we unanimously agreed on David Moyes.

"David is a man of great integrity with a strong work ethic.

"I've admired his work for a long time and approached him as far back as 1998 to discuss the position of Assistant Manager here.

"He was a young man then at the start of his career and has since gone on to do a magnificent job at Everton.

"There is no question he has all the qualities we expect of a manager at this club.”

Moyes, 50, was out of contract at his club and was the most favored to take over from Ferguson.

“It’s a great honour to be asked to be the next manager of Manchester United.

"I am delighted that Sir Alex saw fit to recommend me for the job. I have great respect for everything he has done and for the football club.

“I know how hard it will be to follow the best manager ever but the opportunity to manage Manchester United isn’t something that comes around very often and I’m really looking forward to taking up the post next season," Moyes said.

“I have had a terrific job at Everton, with a tremendous chairman and Board of Directors and a great set of players.

"Between now and the end of the season, I will do everything in my power to make sure we finish as high as possible in the table.

“Everton’s fantastic fans have played a big part in making my years at Goodison so enjoyable and I thank them wholeheartedly for the support they have given me and the players.

"Everton will be close to me for the rest of my life.”

Moyes has made a name for himself at Everton making it a top 6 club using very little funds. Lets wait to see how he will fare at the theater of dreams.
