  • Wayne Rooney continues to spiral down the pecking order at Manchester United

    Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney has been reduced to a support act in the eyes of manager Jose Mourinho, after the England international was denied a slice of history in the Europa League win over Fenerbahce. Rooney was twice denied the opportunity to take first half spot-kicks, despite being one of two designated penalty-takers and was prevented becoming the club's premier marksman in European competition - currently held by Ruud van Nistelrooy on 37 goals - and closing in on Sir Bobby Charlton's all-time scoring record. At the start of the campaign Rooney was regarded as one of three options from the spot, along with new signings Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Paul Pogba.

  • France's Juppe says Anglo-French border should be moved to England - Guardian

  • Trump's war chest one of smallest in recent presidential campaigns

    By Ginger Gibson and Grant Smith WASHINGTON/NEW YORK (Reuters) - Republican Donald Trump could go down as the least well-funded presidential candidate in recent campaigns - entering the final month of the election still without the cash to match the level of staff and advertising that has helped power the campaign of his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton.

Through the end of September, Trump raised a total of $163 million (133 million pounds) - a far cry from Clinton’s $449 million.
