Bournemouth v Manchester City: match preview   10%

Can Bournemouth stop Manchester City? Probably not. Eight defeats from eight meetings in the Premier League speaks for itself.

A rather large if, however, considering the embarrassment of talent at Guardiola’s disposal. Graham Searles

Is US capitalism really abandoning the 'greed is good' mantra? | Larry Elliott   -30%

The US roundtablers’ pledge is woolly. So it’s baby steps for now to stop Capitol Hill forcing more drastic changes

Milton Friedman will be spinning in his grave at the heresy perpetrated by the US Business Roundtable. For the thick end of five decades US capitalism has been run along Friedmanite lines – namely that businesses are there to make money for their shareholders. No charitable giving, no diversity awareness. No green audits. Just making money. Period.

Now some of the highest paid on the planet have appeared to ditch the idea of shareholder primacy. Sure, they say, shareholders matter but so do a range of other stakeholders: customers, employees, suppliers and communities. Workers must be treated with dignity and respect. Businesses will be run sustainably in order to protect the environment.

Sylvinho has revived Lyon so will Ligue 1 have a title race after all?   -16%

Lyon have won both of their games so far this season and look like a team reborn under their young Brazilian manager

By Adam White and Eric Devin for Get French Football News

“I didn’t think he would be a coach,” explained Gilles Grimandi. “I thought he would be disappointed – that he wouldn’t understand why some people don’t have the same spirit as him, invest as much or work as hard. He has such a passion for football that it takes precedence over everything else.” Despite the concerns of his former Arsenal teammate, his minimal experience, little understanding of French, the sales of key players and a volatile fanbase, Sylvinho looks better suited to coaching than Grimandi expected.

Lyon are only two games into the season and Sylvinho is rightly cautious about heightened expectation, but the manager has a pair of meaningful victories to his name. Previous incumbent Bruno Génésio suffered through a toxic atmosphere at Parc OL, incessant pressure from fans and media alike, and widespread criticism of his tactical nous. Under Génésio, Lyon repeatedly struggled for inspiration against the more conservative tactics of weaker Ligue 1 sides, while Europa League collapses horribly punctuated his tenure. Lyon often lacked ideas and cohesion, but that has already started to change under Sylvinho.

Remarkably,m the Norwich midfielder escapes a booking, but Chelsea have a free-kick from about 35 yards out, in the inside right channel.
