Moyes: We were never out title race

first_img0Shares0000LONDON, England, November 22- David Moyes admits Manchester United have made a slow start to the season but never felt they were out of the race to retain their title.United have had a mixed start to their first season under Moyes and slumped to 12th in September their crushing 4-1 defeat at Manchester City. But they are unbeaten in nine games in all competitions and defeated league leaders Arsenal 1-0 in their last fixture before the international break.Moyes says his faith in the side was never broken and he is confident they can continue improving as the season progresses.“I never thought we were out of it (the title race),” said Moyes, who takes United to Cardiff City on Sunday afternoon.“We just go about our job and try and win each game. Everybody knew at the start what it was going to be like.“We knew we had a change of manager and there were always going to be problems, no matter what – whether it be winning games or different personnel in the team.“I have said many times that Manchester United have proved over the years they improve as they go on.“My history at Everton was as a slow-starter as well. Hopefully we’re beginning to find our feet and we’ll continue to improve.”-Football365.com0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

European Net Usage Growth Opens Doors for International Business

Their carefully considered Digital Agenda aims to improve Internet business opportunities by boosting broadspeed and getting more people online.What’s more, each country is vying to outdo the others. For example, Britain is aiming to win the race online by becoming the first nation in the world where everyone is able to access and use the Web.Robert Nicholson is the Marketing Manager at Interxion, a UK-based data services provider. You can follow him on Twitter at @robbothan.Good for Europe, you may be saying – but what has it got to do with businesses in the US? Well, the answer is a heck of a lot. Interxion has put together a visualization of the data surrounding this digital race and unearthed some startling figures that represent fantastic opportunities for businesses worldwide.Here is what we discovered:Perhaps the most relevant piece of information is that while 45% of British businesses are purchasing goods and services online, only 15% of British businesses are providing them. This means that UK-based companies are not meeting the demand, and this is where international businesses can swoop in and cater to this need.However, the Digital Agenda’s main purpose was to stimulate domestic business opportunities in order to decrease the EU’s reliance on the financial industry. In an effort to boost local economies, the Agenda could potentially force proprietary systems (think Apple’s iPhone) to open up to competitors.Nevertheless, recent events are making the EU attractive for international business owners – particularly in e-commerce. With more and more European users online looking to purchase goods, international companies have a historic chance to grab some of that business.– Robert Nicholson IT + Project Management: A Love Affair Tags:#enterprise#Guest last_img read more
