first_imgLONDON: Former Manchester United midfielder Paul Scholes stated the Barcelona team under Pep Guardiola was the best side he came up against during the course of his illustrious career.Scholes, often regarded as one of the finest playmakers in the history of the game, conceded that Barcelona had assembled an ‘unreal’ team when Manchester United came up against them in the first decade of this century. Scholes also recalled the time when Manchester United were defeated by Barcelona in two UEFA Champions League finals in a span of three years. In 2009, Barcelona blanked Manchester United 2-0 in Rome while they thumped the Red Devils 3-1 in London in 2011. Scholes admitted that United would have won more UCL titles in a different era. “We were quite unlucky really. In any other era we might have won four, five, or six European Cups,” Scholes told the A Goal In One Podcast as per Daily Mail. “But the teams that were about — you look at Guardiola’s Barcelona team. Jesus, how good were they?! “You could go right through the team. In midfield, you had Andres Iniesta, Xavi, Sergio Busquets and Lionel Messi. Henry on the left. Centre halves of Gerard Pique and Carlos Puyol. Just unreal. “They’re without doubt the best team I’ve played against. They’re one of the best teams that has ever been.” IANS Also Read: NHL players on board with daily COVID-19 testing if season resumeslast_img read more

Cant Stop It Now

first_imgCan’t Stop It Now As summer heats up, so is the housing market. According to the most recent Fannie Mae Home Purchase Sentiment Index (HPSI), more and more Americans feel it is a good time to buy. June’s index saw a 2.1 jump from May, ending up at 88.3 percent—which equaled the all-time high seen in February.According to Fannie Mae’s Chief Economist, Doug Duncan, the HPSI also reflects a growing sellers’ market. Month-over-month the net percentage of respondents who indicated it’s a good time to sell rose to 39 percent, a new high and 7 percent increase from May.However, there are still some clouds on the horizon. “While consumer optimism on this metric is as high as we’ve seen in the survey’s seven-year history, it’s worth noting that this record is relative to the fairly tight standards in place post-crisis when we started collecting National Housing Survey data. Nevertheless, in the face of very tight housing supply, easing credit standards may fail to have the desired effect and could have the unintended consequence of fueling further house price increases,” noted Duncan.Though Americans seem to feel optimistically about the housing market, they aren’t as confident in other sectors, according to Fannie Mae. The net share of respondents who reported that they weren’t concerned about losing their jobs dropped by 5 percent to 66 percent, while those who reported that their household income is higher than a year ago fell 1 percent to land at 17 percent.To see the full range of housing stats Fannie Mae reported, click here.
