Zlatan Ibrahimovic discusses MourinhoPogba relationship

first_imgFormer Manchester United striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic shared his theory on why Jose Mourinho failed to bring out the best out of Paul Pogba at United.Ibrahimovic believes Mourinho’s failure to give Pogba confidence was the reason for the breakdown in their relationship during their time together at United.The former Chelsea manager was sacked last month and Pogba has since produced some of his best football in a United shirt since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was appointed as caretaker manager, scoring five goals and assisting four more in the six matches he has played under the Norwegian.When asked about what changed, Ibrahimovic claimed Pogba is the type of footballer who goes beyond tactical organization and balance and needs to be “free.”Harry Maguire, Manchester UnitedSolskjaer praises Harry Maguire after Man United’s 1-0 win Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Ole Gunnar Solskjaer singled out Harry Maguire for praise after helping Manchester United keep a clean sheet in their 1-0 win over Leicester City.“There are these players that need to be free, they need to feel free to do what they are able to do under the disciple of the coach,” Ibrahimovic told ESPN FC.“Obviously, he has his tactics, he has that, but some players they go above these limits, and you need to let them be free, and I think Paul is one of them.”“Paul didn’t feel confidence from the coach [Mourinho], and the coach didn’t feel confident for Paul.”“It’s difficult to perform as a player if you don’t have confidence from the coach and you don’t have that energy, that motivation, and Jose felt the same thing about Paul.”last_img read more

2014 Magazine Launches Outpacing Last Year in Q1

first_imgMediafinder has released its first quarter report on magazine launches and closures. This year is shaping up better than the previous year, as 45 print magazines launched in 2014 verses 27 in 2013.There is some bad news, however. Closures this year outpaced 2013, with 14 versus 9. Still, that equals a two-year net market gain of 48 new (or revived) titles in Q1.Breaking it down further, 36 of the launches this year are consumer-facing titles and 9 are in the b-to-b space. But all 14 closures this year are consumer titles.In 2009 there was a net market loss of more than 120 titles over the entire year, and things looked bleak. However, the industry is clearly rebounding–with stable net gains since 2010.last_img read more

Triangles pintsize speakers are highend masters

first_img Tags Share your voice Speakers Audio Comment The Triangle Esprit Titus EZ speakers Triangle HiFi I’ve covered a lot of American and British audiophile speakers in my time, but French contenders, rarely. This one, the Esprit Titus EZ from Triangle HiFi may be the first I’ve heard from that company, but there will likely be many more. Triangle was founded in 1980 in France, how I overlooked Triangle this long is beyond me. The Esprit Titus EZ is a small, two-way bookshelf design fitted with a 1-inch (25mm) horn loaded titanium tweeter and a 5-inch (127mm) cellulose midrange/woofer. Both drivers are designed in-house. There’s a small bass port on the rear baffle, and some of the most beautifully crafted all-metal speaker cable binding posts I’ve ever seen.  The speaker is nice and compact, just 12 x 6.2 x 10.5 inches (306x167x257mm). My gleaming white Titus EZ samples had attractive, magnetically-attached white cloth grilles, but I listened with the drivers exposed. The Esprit EZ sells for $1,250 per pair in high-gloss black or white, $1,000 in vinyl walnut or black ash in the US; £620 and £740 respectively in the UK; AU$1,399 and AU$1,699 in Australia. I don’t recommend using the Titus EZ with receivers, unless they are rated to handle 4-ohm speakers. The Titus EZ is a small two-way speakers with 5 inch woofers and so you can’t expect it to be a head banger’s or party speaker.  Easy listening with the Titus EZThe Titus EZ arrived on my doorstep right after the Wharfedale Linton Heritage speakers departed. The Lintons are much larger bookshelf speakers that retail for $1,198 a pair, in line with the Titus EZ pricewise. The Lintons make a ton of bass, play loud with ease, and they’re more dynamically alive.  Still, the Titus EZ was enjoyable and wholly satisfying, just on a smaller scale, and it would be a better fit for small to midsize rooms.  The Titus EZ has a sweet, beautiful tone that makes harsh recordings a little easier on the ears. It may be a horn speaker, but it’s not about to threaten the Klipsch RP 600M horn speaker for dynamic “slam” or power, the Titus EZ is more polite than that.One of my musician audiophile pals dropped by while I was working on the Titus EZ review, and while he can be pretty fussy about sound he was quite taken with the Esprit EZ. He was especially impressed with the way these speakers reproduced the sound of drums and cymbals. This speaker digs deep into the quieter detail of recordings, so you hear atmosphere of the recording venue or studio. The Titus EZ tweeter is clear and clean, but it’s not going to make everyday, compressed recordings sound annoyingly harsh.To test the Titus EZ’s low-bass abilities I cued up Fabriclive. 54: David Rodigan, a tasty collection of classic reggae, dance hall and dub music. Definition and fullness were decent, but if you listen to a steady diet of bass-heavy music, plan on adding a subwoofer. Same as you would for any small speaker with a 5-inch woofer. The KEF LS50 speaker is close to the same size as the ‘EZ, but the LS50 is a little less sensitive, but somewhat more weighty-sounding speaker in the bass. Definition was better, too. Still, the Titus EZ sounded richer on male vocals, which subjectively warmed up the overall tonal balance. It’s a mellower, more “relaxed”-sounding speaker. Stereo imaging was wide, but image focus wasn’t as sharp as the LS50s’. I like both of these speakers, and they’re both high-quality mini monitors so there’s no easy call here. I really enjoyed my time with the Triangle Esprit Titus EZ speakers. They’re ideal for buyers craving a very musical, highly refined speaker for use with audiophile electronics in smaller spaces. I’m just starting with Triangle speakers; I hope to report on their higher-end Signature or Magellan series speakers later this year. The Audiophiliac 1last_img read more
