WATFORD — David Moyes said he was disappointed by his new players after his first game in charge of West Ham United ended in a 2-0 defeat at Watford.

Goals in each half from Will Hughes and Richarlison were enough to earn victory for Marco Silva’s team.

And although Watford keeper Heurelho Gomes made a number of saves, particularly from Marko Arnautovic and Cheikhou Kouyate, the home side missed a number of other chances and were good value for victory.

West Ham stayed 18th, in the relegation zone, following a loss in which Moyes admitted “the better team won.”

He said: “I didn’t enjoy the performance in the end. Overall, I didn’t think it was good enough. It’ll not be good enough; it needs to get much better.”

Travelling Hammers fans made their anger clear, barracking the club’s owners David Gold and David Sullivan and vice-chairman Baroness Brady and singling out striker Andy Carroll for criticism.

David Moyes didn’t enjoy West Ham’s performance at Watford on Sunday.

“I don’t know all the history and the reasons for it and I am really thankful because they were supportive of me,” Moyes said.

“But I have to say also that we need a united club, and I know that’s hard to say and they have grievances. Those supporters will know much better than me about the past.”

On Carroll, Moyes said: “I didn’t know there was any heat before. I didn’t. I was surprised because, to be fair, Andy has done everything in training, tried to be correct in everything he’s done.

“We need to find a way to make sure we get the club together. It needs to be united. I’m probably the wrong man to ask that question at the moment.

“I can only try and get wins which will hopefully make the supporters feel a bit better about the players and the team.”

Moyes said he faced a tough task to revive the squad he inherited from Slaven Bilic a fortnight ago.

“I thought it was a big job,” he added. “There were some players with big reputations who disappointed me a little bit and I thought: ‘You’ll show me more and you’ll show me a little bit if you play in the team regularly.’ 

“But today was really the first time I had a chance to see them play. They didn’t. They need to show that, if this is their reputation, why they have got it.”

fifa15guide | MPs will get to vote on final terms of Brexit deal

Brexit Secretary David Davis (Picture: PA)

The final Brexit deal will be put to MPs for a vote, Brexit minister David Davis confirmed today.

If MPs vote against it, we will leave the EU with no deal.

He clarified the risk of leaving with nothing when Tory former minister Owen Paterson asked: ‘If the House of Commons votes down the new withdrawal bill, will the consequence be we still leave on March 29 2019, but without an agreement?’

Mr Davis replied: ‘Yes.’

Prime Minister Theresa May has been under pressure to offer parliament the chance to have a ‘meaningful vote’ on whatever the terms our of Britain leaving the EU.

Tory rebels threatened to vote against necessary legislation to leave if this didn’t happen.


To try and appease them, Davis said MPs would now get the chance to debate and scrutinise any final Brexit agreement.

‘I can now confirm that once we’ve reached an agreement we will bring forward a specific piece of primary legislation to implement that agreement,’ he told parliament.

But he was accused of offering a ‘sham offer’ because it was all or nothing without the chance to send negotiators back to talks.

We might leave the EU with no deal (Picture: Daniel Leal-Olivas/PA)

Labour former minister Chris Leslie added: ‘Totally worthless to Parliament, essentially trying to buy off people by saying: ‘Oh look, we’re going to give you an act to shape things’, when in fact this is a post hoc, after-the-horse-has-bolted piece of legislation.

‘We might have left the European Union, the treaty and the deal would have been done and Parliament could do nothing at all to shape the nature of that withdrawal agreement.

‘(Mr Davis) has to do much better than this. Parliament must have a say on that withdrawal agreement before we are thrown over the cliff edge.’

Croatia book their place at Russia 2018 on fifa15guide

 Listen 
  • Croatia see off Greece to secure World Cup qualification
  • Goalless draw in Piraeus sees Croats win 4-1 on aggregate
  • It is a fifth World Cup qualification for the Balkan nation

Croatia have qualified for a second consecutive FIFA World Cup™ after a goalless draw in Greece on Sunday evening secured a 4-1 aggregate victory. It is also a record fifth time that the Croatians have qualified for a major tournament through a play-off.

An emphatic 4-1 victory in the first leg in Zagreb on Thursday was more than enough for the Balkan nation to book their place in the global finals in Russia next year.

Needing to overturn a three-goal deficit, Greece pressed forward to find an opening goal at the Karaiskaki Stadium. However, early efforts from Anastasios Bakasetas and Sokratis Papastathopoulos failed to test Croatia goalkeeper Danijel Subasic.

In fact, it was the visitors that went closest to scoring before the break, as Ivan Perisic drilled a long-range shot off the post before the ball bounced away to safety.

Greece kept pushing for goals, but their efforts were unable to pull them back into this play-off tie. Konstantinos Mitroglou had an early chance after the break, while substitute Dimitrios Pelkas found the back of the Croatia net, but the goal was called back for offside.

It was Croatia that celebrated qualification to Russia 2018 in Piraeus at the final whistle, with their first-leg result proving to be the difference, in the end.

Croatia have now qualified for five World Cup finals, having finished third in their maiden appearance at France 1998. They also appeared at Korea/Japan 2002, Germany 2006, and Brazil 2014.

fifa15guide – Declare Your Allegiance in the Battle for Azeroth

The battle against the Legion has left the world broken—but the shattered trust between the Alliance and the Horde could prove the hardest wound to mend. Blizzard Entertainment unveiled plans for World of Warcraft®: Battle for Azeroth™, a new expansion to the company’s acclaimed massively multiplayer online role-playing game that will test players’ resolve as they champion their faction’s cause in a devastating new war.
 

fifa15guide - Declare Your Allegiance in the Battle for Azeroth

In Battle for Azeroth, the fall of the Burning Legion has set off a series of disastrous incidents that reignites the furious rivalry between the noble Alliance and the mighty Horde. As a new age of warfare begins, Azeroth's heroes must set out on a harrowing journey in search of new allies, race to claim the world’s mightiest resources to turn the tides of war, and fight on several fronts to determine which side will lead Azeroth into its uncertain future.

"Conflict is at the heart of the Warcraft® saga, and in Battle for Azeroth, tensions that have been simmering for a long time escalate into all-out war,” said Mike Morhaime, CEO and cofounder of Blizzard Entertainment. “World of Warcraftplayers are incredibly passionate about the characters and factions they identify with in the game, and this expansion will make them prouder than ever to declare their allegiance to the Horde or to the Alliance."
 

fifa15guide - Declare Your Allegiance in the Battle for Azeroth

World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth includes new features and content that will put heroes’ dedication and fortitude to the test. In this expansion, players will be called upon to:

Explore Two Fabled Kingdoms: As a champion of the Horde, travel to the Zandalar empire to persuade the trolls to lend their naval might. As a defender of the Alliance, venture to the seafaring kingdom of Kul Tiras, home of Jaina Proudmoore, and rally its inhabitants to fight for your cause.

Recruit Allied Races: Take a new form for your adventures as several new playable Allied Races, each with unique racial abilities. Earn the favor of the Highmountain tauren, Void elves, Dark Iron dwarves, and others to create a new character of that race and add their strength to your faction.

Plunder the Islands of the Great Sea: Scour Azeroth’s myriad uncharted Islands and conquer an ever-changing array of enemies, environments, and objectives. Battle in groups of three as you race against cunning rival intruders—or enemy players—to collect each island’s resources and fuel the war effort.

Cold War maps show what Britain would have looked like as a Soviet country on fifa15guide

The incredible maps – including this one of Newcastle – were produced over a 40-year period (Picture: The Red Atlas How the Soviet Union Secretly Mapped the World)

The Soviet Union spent decades drawing up meticulous plans of what Britain would look like if they managed to invade.

For 40 years, spies from the USSR familiarised themselves around 100 UK cities and towns, producing extremely detailed maps showing local amenities – such as post offices, museums and parks.

The incredible collection of maps came to be known as the Red Atlas.

One of the maps lists place names in Kent and Essex phonetically, transliterated into the Polish alphabet. Other maps show major cities with area names written in the cyrillic Russian script.

Polish citizens may have found themselves living in Kentebery (Canterbury), Eszfed (Ashford), Douwe (Dover) or Saufend-on-Sji (Southend-on-Sea).

You could take a day trip to Hejstynz, or Fouksten (Picture: The Red Atlas How the Soviet Union Secretly Mapped the World)

But if you were living in London, you would have gone to university on Странд (the Strand), gone for a walk along Темза (the Thames), or gone for drinks in Мейфер (Mayfair) – according to this map drawn up in 1985.

Recognise any of these famous places just north of the Thames in London? (Picture: The Red Atlas How the Soviet Union Secretly Mapped the World)

Another map of Edinburgh produced in 1983 has transliterated the names of popular areas, such as Уест-Энд (West End) and Парк Куин-Стрит-Гарденс (Queen Street Gardens).

You could easily find your way around Edinburgh with this map (Picture: The Red Atlas How the Soviet Union Secretly Mapped the World)

Liverpool looks quite different in this map from 1974 – although Док Альберт (Albert Dock) is still clearly visible.

And this Soviet map of central Manchester clearly has the tram lines marked, as well as Piccadilly station.

Even the tram lines in Manchester are clearly marked in this map (Picture: The Red Atlas How the Soviet Union Secretly Mapped the World)

The incredible maps can be found in The Red Atlas: How the Soviet Union Secretly Mapped the World, which has been written by John Davies and Alexander J Kent.

The pair spent 15 years researching the maps for their book, adding that the level of detail is ‘mind-boggling – and it’s all completely correct’.

‘Knowledge is power. They believed that the whole world would be Communist, and they would be in charge. If you were in possession of one of these maps, you would have a lot of information at your hands,’ Davies told MailOnline.

He added: ‘The project was started by Stalin and it ran all the way through beyond Kruschev’s time.’

Many streets were missing names – such as on this map of Glasgow – which leads experts to believe they were drawn from satellite photographs (Picture: The Red Atlas How the Soviet Union Secretly Mapped the World)

Experts are still unsure how the cartographers managed to glean so much detail, with even civil amenities such as post offices and museums marked on the map.

Dean and his secret boyfriend jailed for defrauding university of £500,000

However, because many of the maps leave out road names, it’s thought that aerial photos taken by Zenit satellites were a key source of information.

Davies added: ‘The quality is not what we typically associate with the Soviet Union. We know food was in short supply, the quality of paper was poor and tractor records were falsified, but these show that if you were funded by the military, you could get it right.’

The Red Atlas: How the Soviet Union Secretly Mapped the World, written by John Davies and Alexander J Kent and published by the University of Chicago Press, is on sale for £26.

Ambitious Manchester City entering critical stretch – Kevin De Bruyne on fifa15guide

Craig Burley dissects Man City’s game-winning goal to demonstrate how they use a wide, balanced attack to score.
Pep Guardiola wants to see his Manchester City side take more of their chances after a narrow win over West Brom.
Substitute Raheem Sterling’s second-half goal ensured Man City won their ninth Premier League game of the season.

BIRMINGHAM — Kevin De Bruyne believes Manchester City are entering a crucial week for their ambitions for silverware this season.

City can guarantee a place in the last-16 of the Champions League with a draw away to Serie A leaders Napoli on Wednesday.

And they can guarantee a five-point lead at the top of the Premier League going into the international break on Sunday with a victory over Arsenal in a game which finishes before Manchester United, their closest rivals, face a difficult clash away to champions Chelsea.

“We know if we go to Napoli and win then we’ll have qualified — that would be a nice position,” De Bruyne told reporters.

“Then hopefully another good one against Arsenal and put some pressure on the rest of the teams.

“It’s important just to get qualified not about thinking about what it might mean, whether we could get a rest. If we are qualified, that is done.

Kevin De Bruyne is ready for an important stretch of matches.

“We might then have to think about finishing first or whatever but we know if we get a point or win, we are qualified.”

City extended their Premier League winning streak to eight games on Saturday with a 3-2 win away to West Bromwich Albion.

They have drawn once and not been beaten this season but De Bruyne insists it is impossible for City to go all season without a defeat in the league.

“To go unbeaten? Well, it’s very hard. I don’t think it will be possible,” he said. “The level of competition is so high, in every team.

“It’s not like, with all respect, 10 or 15 years ago where you have a couple of teams that won’t win against the top teams. Now, every game is hard and you need to be mentally there.

“And with the Champions League and all the cups, there will be a game where maybe we are a little bit less and maybe lose. But as long as it keeps going, it’s good.”

fifa15guide – Real Madrid stunned by Girona; Getafe beat Real Sociedad

Shaka Hislop and Alexis Nunes try to make sense of Real Madrid’s shock defeat at Girona, and where Zidane & Co. go from here.

Girona ended Real Madrid‘s four-game La Liga win streak with a stunning 2-1 defeat of the defending champions on Sunday.

Isco opened the scoring for the visitors — the Spain international dancing away from two defenders in the box before curling a left-footed shot out of goalkeeper Bono’s reach.

But the hosts hit back and snatched the lead with a decisive four-minute stretch to start the second half.

Cristhian Stuani evened the scoreline in the 54th minute, when he latched onto a loose ball and fired his low shot past Kiko Casilla from inside the box.

And Portu sealed the points four minutes later, sensationally back-heeling Pablo Maffeo’s low cross to the delight of the home faithful.

The result keeps Real in a tie for third place with city rivals Atletico Madrid, eight points behind leaders Barcelona. Girona move up to 11th.

Getafe produced a superb second-half performance to come from behind and beat Real Sociedad 2-1 at the Coliseum Alfonso Perez.

The visitors took the lead after just five minutes when Adnan Januzaj picked up the ball just inside his own half and was allowed to advance unchallenged before playing a perfectly weighted ball to Mikel Oyarzabal, who fired a first-time finish into the bottom corner.

Getafe offered little going forward in the first half but were a different side after the interval and deservedly equalised after 78 minutes as Francisco Portillo’s superb pass allowed fellow substitute Angel Rodriguez to control on his chest before firing home.

And the home side secured all three points five minutes from time when Inigo Martinez brought down Rodriguez in the area and Jorge Molina scored from the spot.

Malaga defeated Celta Vigo 2-1 to claim their first league victory of the season and climb off the bottom of the table.

Malaga collected just one point from their first nine matches but took the lead in first-half injury time through Adrian Gonzalez.

Iago Aspas looked like he might have secured a point for Celta Vigo when he equalised in the 76th minute but seven minutes later Recio scored the winner from the penalty spot after Gustavo Cabral handled in the area.

Eibar fought back from two goals down to draw 2-2 with Levante.

Jose Luis Morales gave the visitors the lead in the 35th minute, and two minutes later they doubled their advantage through Enis Bardhi.

But Eibar gave themselves a lifeline six minutes after the break with a goal from Anaitz Arbilla and Charles earned the strugglers what could prove to be a very valuable point with the equaliser in the 74th minute.
