The Street Child World Cup has competing boys and girls teams, it kicks off on Sunday 30th March in Rio, but unlike this Summer's event, it is the taking part that really does count as every single child participating has had a journey to get there and is already a winner.
The fact that there is probably some truth in what Sheedy suggests - that Moyes' tactics are a little direct and certainly not based on playing patient, passing football - is lost on me. His choice of timing is callous and unfortunately his PR plans lack the class he showed on the pitch during his playing career.
More than three years have passed since Ryan Babel became the first player charged by the FA over comments made on Twitter and players are still falling foul of the regulations in new and inventive ways.
Tactics and philosophies can be adapted and changed at the drop of a hat. Hopefully Moyes will start to play to the strengths of the side rather than continue stubbornly with an outdated formation that isn't working. The biggest problem Moyes faces is keeping control of a dressing room full of champions.
David Moyes, Ed Woodward and Manchester United have shown who is boss and his name is Wayne Rooney. Days after the signing of Chelsea midfielder Juan Mata for £37.1 million, striker Wayne Rooney is once again in talks with the Old Trafford hierarchy to extend his current deal which ends in 18 months time.
How much would David Moyes pay for a football club brimming with the same confidence, the same arrogance in fact, that Manchester United have exuded for the majority of the last 20 years? Confident fans, a confident board room and most importantly, a confident group of players.
There are some key factors in building successful teams in politics, sport and business - and Ed Miliband might be stealing a march on David Cameron in one area...
Anyone catch that Keane v Vieira documentary the other week? If you've watched any football on ITV recently, you'll have seen national village idiot Adrian Chiles repeatedly flatulating over it like some sort of gammon whoopee cushion, each time turning to simper at sweet-tempered Roy with the distinct air of a man doing everything in his meagre powers to avoid having his intestines used to hoist the boom.
For anyone who knows the history of Manchester United, particularly the Sir Matt Busby era and when he retired in 1969, there is a real sense of Déjà Vu at Old Trafford at present.
Athletes and sportsmen appear to strongly believe in momentum and the powerful psychology of streaks - winning causes momentum and momentum causes more winning. If the same is true of losing then, this should cause a chill in any United supporter...
2014 promises much in the way of sport, and now that the unfathomably elongated Festive period- after which people cease eating all day long and work again - has finally come to an end, we can get on with it.
As the festive period draws to a close, at a time when age old traditions and habits are both embraced and encouraged, it was once again business as usual at football clubs across the country...
At this time of year, we like to reflect on the last twelve months of Premier League football and hand out the annual awards. One award I would like to focus on is the Manager of the Year for 2013...
Currently suffering their poorest start to a Premier League season on record, it's fair to say that even those who criticised the managerial appointment of David Moyes (and there were plenty of them) wouldn't have predicted United would be languishing in ninth position with more than a third of the season gone.
The Champions League consists of the best domestic teams from all over Europe and to win the competition in its entirety is seen as the pinnacle of club football. Taking part in the European competition has many advantages to it and just qualifying for it is a huge attraction for potential players looking to move clubs.
On the Beckham issue, one just has to laugh. What was the point of digging all that up in such a negative way? Why do a hatchet job in the book and then try to make amends in the book launch, by stating the obvious? Why bring his wife, Victoria, into it?
