(Reuters) - Former Manchester United forward Wayne Rooney has stepped down as manager of Derby County, the League One club said on Friday, ending a turbulent 17-month spell during which his side were marred by financial trouble and relegated to the third tier. Derby were handed two separate deductions worth 21 points for entering administration and breaching financial rules last season, which eventually led to their demotion from the Championship. "Wayne Rooney has today informed Derby County Football Club that he wishes to be relieved of his duties as first team manager with immediate effect," Derby said in a statement. American businessman Chris Kirchner's proposed acquisition of the club fell through this month after he failed to meet the English Football League's deadline to complete the purchase. "Today I met with the administrators to inform them of my decision that it was time for me to leave the club. In fairness to them, they tried tremendously hard to change my … [Read more...] about Soccer-Rooney steps down as Derby County boss

(Reuters) - Derby County manager Wayne Rooney said he hoped former owner Mel Morris loses sleep over the club's relegation to the third tier of English football. Derby were handed two separate deductions worth 21 points for entering administration and breaching financial rules earlier in the season, with their 1-0 loss at Queens Park Rangers confirming their relegation from the Championship. "Hopefully he doesn't have a good night's sleep tonight and that plays on his mind," Rooney told the BBC on Monday. "I think he needs to have a think about it. Where the club's been left, it was a complete mess. "I know Mel Morris is a big Derby fan, so I'm sure he's sat at home tonight disappointed. We are disappointed as we've done everything we can to try and not let this happen and worked extremely hard." Despite their relegation, former Manchester United and England striker Rooney said there were a few positives to take out of the season. "We've earned enough points to stay in … [Read more...] about Soccer-Rooney hopes former owner loses sleep over Derby’s drop to the third tier
(Reuters) - American businessman Chris Kirchner has been named as the preferred bidder for second-tier side Derby County, the English Championship club's administrators said on Wednesday. Kirchner, 34, said in October he wanted to take Derby out of administration and was seeking approval from the English Football League (EFL) to become owner of the club. "Following a rigorous and well-documented marketing process, the joint administrators... have accepted an offer from Chris Kirchner to acquire Derby County Football club out of administration," the administrators said in a statement reported by British media. Derby, managed by former Manchester United and England striker Wayne Rooney, are 23rd in the standings after 40 games due to points deductions imposed when they went into administration.

On Friday, June 26, 2015, the Supreme Court of the United States delivered its decision in the case of Obergefell v. Hodges. The court had voted — narrowly, 5-4 — to legalize gay marriage nationwide. At the time, it felt as though the court had offered a gift to San Francisco, which that same weekend was celebrating Pride. Seven years later, almost to the day, the Supreme Court once again set the tone and tenor for Pride Weekend, ruling on Friday that there is no constitutional right to abortion, stripping millions of women of a bodily autonomy they had known for nearly half a century. On Friday morning, San Francisco Supervisor Rafael Mandelman, whose district includes the Castro, came to the steps of City Hall for a special LGBTQ+ Pride Marriage Celebration. Couples had been invited to celebrate their nuptials before a rainbow balloon altar. A photo booth had been set up, too, full of silly costume props. The undertone, though, was one of mixed emotions. “The fact that we’re … [Read more...] about ‘Pride started with a protest’: Abortion ruling reminds LGBTQ people why they march in S.F.
An artist and her lawyer partner are locked in a fight with their millionaire neighbours after being accused of taking three feet of their garden and paving over it. Wendy Mszyca and her partner Amanda Uziell-Hamilton are accused of staging a land-grab over the narrow strip of ground between their million-pound house and the £1.4m Victorian home of their neighbours, Jay and Hannah Stirrett. The neighbours' houses in Camberwell, south London, are built with gardens backing onto each other and the Stirretts say the other couple removed a fence and paved another three feet back towards the Stirretts' house. They are now suing at Central London County Court for return of the strip, which they say is "significant" in an area of London where properties are expensive and gardens small and valuable. However, their neighbours deny the land belongs to the Stirretts and say they were simply reclaiming what used to be their flower bed before it was temporarily fenced off by builders in … [Read more...] about Couple sue millionaire neighbours over ‘3ft land grab’ between back gardens
A domestic abuse survivor terrorised by her abusive ex-boyfriend is "relieved" after his "dirty little secret" was revealed, claims a relative. Christopher Forrest pleaded guilty to assaulting his then-partner on multiple occasions during a court hearing yesterday and is due to be sentenced next month. The 40-year-old delivery driver, from East Kilbride, South Lanarkshire, committed the attacks at his victim's home in Blantyre, in the same county, between July 2017 and August 2020. Hamilton Sheriff Court saw CCTV which showed the thug throttling her on a bed and telling her she was going to die, reports the Daily Record. A family member told the newspaper the victim "feels better" but can't believe he is still walking the streets while he waits to find out his sentence. They said: "She is relieved it's out there for everyone to see who he really is and she is no longer hiding his dirty little secret.
