1. Giggs will be the next manager - English translation

English

Louis Van Gaal, Manchester United's manager expects Ryan Giggs to take his job when he quits but Giggs is currently the dutch's assistant.


"I expect Giggs to be the next manager after me. Right now the responsebility is with me. He has projects to do as a player and what he has done for me he has done really well." Said Van Gaal to the MUTV channel but he has compared Giggs to Jose Mourinho, Chelsea's manager.


Giggs is a true legend at Manchester United but the Welsh has played the most games for the club. He played 963 games for the club in a fantastic carreer that lasted for 25 years. In that time he won 25 titles with the club, including 13 English championships and two Championship league titles.


"Giggs reads the game quite like Mourinho and he puts in a lot of work to the job. He's been quick to learn."

Lou­is van Gaal knatt­spyrn­u­stjóri Manchester United býst við því að Ryan Giggs taki við starfi sínu þegar hann hætt­ir hjá fé­lag­inu en Giggs er aðstoðarmaður Hol­lend­ings­ins.

,,Ég reikna með því að Giggs verði næsti stjóri á eft­ir mér. Núna er ábyrgðin á mér.Hann hef­ur verk­efni sem hann hef­ur til aðfram­kvæma eins og leikmaður og það sem hann hef­ur gert fyr­ir mig hef­ur hann gert mjög vel,“ sagði Van Gaal við MUTV sjón­varpið en hann hef­ur líkt Giggs við José Mour­in­ho, stjóra Chel­sea.

Giggs er sann­kölluð goðsögn hjá Manchester United en Walesverj­inn á leikja­met fé­lags­ins. Hann lék 963 leiki með liðinu á stór­kost­leg­um ferli sem stóð yfir í 25 ár. Á þeim tíma vann hann 25 titla með fé­lag­inu þar af enska meist­ara­titil­inn 13 sinn­um og Meist­ara­deild­ina í tvígang.

I chose this article because it was challenging. I could have chosen some basic article for kids but instead i went to the website Mbl.is and found an article challenging enough. I didn't really use any methoods unless to grab a dictionary every now and then.

Þeir halda að það sé allt búið; fyrrverandi fótboltamenn um lífið eftir lokaflautuna.

Stuart Ripley, 47

Það eina sem ég vissi að mig langaði að gera eftir að ég myndi hætta var að fara í háskóla. Ég fékk níu O-stig og gekk svo í raðir Middlesbrough 16 ára svo sá draumur var tekinn frá mér. Ég var í byrjunarliðinu 17 ára og lífið sá um sig sjálft. Ég vann ensku deildina og stóð fyrir landi mínu, en þegar hætti svo 34 ára þá fannst mér eins og hefði misst af miklu með því að fara ekki í háskóla. Svo, eftir að hafa tekið smá pásu þá sótti ég um í "University of Central Lancashire." Fyrst ætlaði ég að fá gráðu í tungumálum en það þýddi að ég hefði þurft að vera í útlöndum í ár og ég gat ekki bara farið sísvona; krakkarnir voru komnir í skóla svo ég endaði á sameinaðri braut: Frönsku og lögfræði.


Ég fór á nokkra lögfræðiupplestra og hafði almennt gaman af þeim. Á þessu stigi ætlaði ég aldrei að verða málflutningsmaður. Eftir að ég fékk gráðuna mína fór ég í framhaldsnám og fékk svo þjálfunarsamning hjá Barbners, sem er stofa í Manchester. Ég eyddi tveimur árum á mismunandi deildum- maður verður að stökkva í gegn um hringina.

The only thing I knew I wanted to do when I retired was to go to university. I got nine O-levels and then joined Middlesbrough at 16, so that option was taken away. I was in the first team at 17 and life was taking care of itself. I won thePremier League and represented my country, but when I retired at 34, I felt I’d missed out by not going to university. So, after taking a bit of time out, I enrolled at the University of Central Lancashire. My first intention was to do a foreign languages degree, but that meant a year abroad and I couldn’t just up and leave; by then, the kids were in school. So I ended up on a combined course: French, criminology and law.

I went to some law lectures and thoroughly enjoyed them. At that stage, I never had any intention to become a solicitor. After my degree, I did the postgraduate certificate for a year and then got a training contract with Brabners, a firm in Manchester. I spent two years in different departments – you have to jump through the hoops.

Interview with Gísli Þór Brynjarsson

So Gísli where do you play?

I am the team captain at Umf Bisk.


Have you won any titles?

Yes we won the southern outsidersleague.


What does football mean to you?

It means alot to me, but ofcourse i have to have a little time for my newborn child, wich will be raised to be a Liverpool fan number 1. But me and the guys get together two times a week and run a little.


Desbribe a day of your life.

First I wake up early to get to my job. Then we go play some football after work. We don´t have a coach so I am also the coach. Then I go home and get a beer after the practise. And then I put baby and wife to sleep and then I get a good night sleep.


How much more do you think your carreer will last?

I hope to be at least 20 years more and be a legend at my club.


Will we ever see you play on TV?

I think that's a possibility. A couple of teams have already contacted me after the victory at the Guðjónsmót so I think it's just a matter of time.


Thank you for the interview!

No problem, just happy to help.


I Chose Gísli because he has won alot of titles for his home club Umf Bisk. He showed great talents at the world famous Guðjónsmót at Selfoss and has often won the Young player of the year trophy at Reykholt. He has always shown class and good behaviour both on the field and out of the field. He is a true legend.

Ted: Clint Smith - how to raise a black son in America.

In this lecture he talks about how it is to raise a black son in America. He talks about the dangers and how to black kids can not play outside when the sun goes down. All these rules that we don't know like taking your hood down when it gets dark and don't play with toy guns or anything that might be mistaken for a weapon.


I chose this lecture because I think it was inspiring and I learned alot from it.

Ted: Clint smith - The dangers of silence

In this one, Clint is telling us how silence is dangerous and it is better to speak up against injustice. He tells his own experience and how he gave up speaking. The subject of this lecture can be put in one sentence: "We spend so much time listening to the things people are saying that we rarely pay attention to the things they don't."


I chose this lecture because it was also inspiring.

Ted: Shimpei Takahashi - Play this game to come up with original ideas

Shimpei tells us his story as a toy inventor and his troubles. He couldn't find anything so he came up with a game to help bring fresh ideas. U take a random word and then another one that begins with the last letter of the first one. then again and again until you have alot of random words. U then put those words together to form an idea. For example toothbrush and a guitar is a toothbrush in the shape of a guitar that plays music.


I chose this lecture because it makes you be creative.
