The key to Manchester United’s unravelling could be in the Rooney Deal, writes’s The Daily Shift’s Ian Colgan. None of the excited guesswork about Manchester United would be taken seriously if United were winning week in, week out, instead of thrashing around in some kind of ungainly death throe, and RVP didn’t do much to […]
In the first of a two-part inquest, The Daily Shift’s Ian Colgan examines Machester United’s crumbling empire.

The Monuments Men (directed by George Clooney, Cert 12) tells the tale of the curators recruited towards the end of the war to preserve the art of Europe. Given the wholesale destruction of entire cities (Dresden, formerly called ‘The Jewel Box’, is the most famous example of a city being levelled), the real-life Monuments Men did a remarkable job.
