Jose Mourinho has taken a man squad to Ashton Gate, where Henrikh Mkhitaryan could make his first United start since November 5 after being dropped from eight of the last nine squads. However, Mourinho has also rested a number of first-teamers for the last eight tie ahead of United’s Saturday night Premier League fixture at Leicester. David de Gea, who did not start in the previous rounds against Burton Albion and Swansea, has earned a breather and Sergio Romero is set to start in his place. Joel Pereira is likely to earn a bench berth, with Kieran O’Hara included in the travelling party as the warm-up ‘keeper. Ashley Young, who has started 13 of the last 14 Premier League matches, has been saved for Leicester and so has Phil Jones. United centre-back Jones returned to play two club matches within seven days last week and is also set to return at the King Power Stadium this weekend. Antonio Valencia came off with a hamstring injury in Sunday’s win at West Brom and has missed the trip to the Championship club. Valencia insists he is ‘fine’ and also could line-up at Leicester.

What an incredible finish. After ninety sweat-infused minutes, in which it appeared nothing could separate the second placed team in the Premier League from the third in the Championship, this tie seemed to be heading into extra time. Then, in the last moments of added time, Korey Smith burst into the Manchester United penalty area to score the winning goal which took Bristol City to the semi-final of the Carabao Cup, and an appointment with Manchester City.

The 8 and the 12, the latter taking a circuitous route via Daubhill, Little Hulton, Walkden, Roe Green and Worsley taking a scheduled 55minutes against the rather tightly timed 38 minutes of the more direct 8. Quite apart from the fascinating stuff we saw and rode on the way up, across and back down again, the Stockport and Manchester Crossleys made a great impression, and so did the great variety of operators working into Manchester, but I remember being especially taken by those lovely Salford Daimlers with their straight staircases, destination-winder trunnions and the no-nonsense, upright Metro-Cammell bodies.
To have lasted so long with such rough treatment these wonderfully characterful vehicles must have been as solidly-built as they looked—or were the fitters kept busy? I bet someone knows! I read that Salford always put their newest buses on the 15, which ran to Piccadilly, to impress their neighbours “across the river”. This has now been superseded by Shudehill Bus Station, which is actually in Manchester, and the whole area around Victoria Bridge Street is being redeveloped.
Share shares University of Manchester scientists put together a map of UK tornado strikes, finding that the Thames Valley is the most likely area in Britain to be hit. The chance of a tornado occurring within 10km of any location in the area is about 6 per cent. Kelsey Mulder, the lead author, said: After the Thames Valley, the most likely to be affected was an area from Bristol through Birmingham to Manchester, which had almost a 5 per cent chance of a twister striking. An area stretching from the north-east of London to Ipswich had a 4 per cent chance of tornado, while the south coast of Wales had a 3 per cent likelihood.
The peak season was from May to October, according to the study of land-based tornadoes from to , which appears in the journal Monthly Weather Review.

It’s become tradition at Bristol Motor Speedway that Sprint Cup drivers select the songs they walk out on stage to before the race. The compound used was a substance commonly used at dragstrips to increase traction in the take-off area. It is designed to enhance adhesion between tires and the concrete racing surface. The substance is intended to give the lower line additional grip to make that groove as competitive as the top groove.
Still, drivers could run on the lower groove and not lose as much time as previously. The track’s lower groove in the corners was treated before this week. The health system is also expanding its role with a strong presence for the Sept. Plus, caregivers will be present for the concert headlined by Kenny Chesney the day before. The support continues a week later with Wellmont providing medical care for the Sept. The new contract, which continues a relationship that spans about 20 years, reflects the speedway’s growth into a multi-use sports and entertainment facility.
Facilities at the speedway include five fan care centers and an infield care center, which treats drivers, crew members and NASCAR officials. Physicians who work in the infield care center must be board-certified in emergency medicine, and all other providers in that facility must have training in emergency care or critical care. The dragway has one care center for spectators and participants in NHRA races, and all medical providers must have the same training and certifications as those who work in the infield care center at the speedway.
Woodard and Parks also work collaboratively with local emergency medical services agencies and WellmontOne Air Transport during all events to assist anyone with illnesses or injuries who might need to be taken to Bristol Regional.

While Bristol Motor Speedway is considered a short track at just more than a half-mile in length, it truly falls more into the speedway category of tracks. With its steep banking, the loads and speeds generated at Bristol are closer to those of much bigger tracks. Because of that, the construction of Goodyear’s left- and right-side tires are built to handle those loads and speeds, as well as optimizing handling.
The other challenge at Bristol is the concrete surface. The tire set-up, and specifically the compounds for Bristol, match up well with the track surface and lay down rubber quickly, leading to the development of multiple racing grooves and competitive, side-by-side racing.

Etymology[ edit ] The most ancient recorded name for Bristol is the archaic Welsh Caer Odor the fort on the chasm , which is consistent with modern understanding that early Bristol developed between the River Frome and Avon Gorge. Alternative etymologies are supported by numerous orthographic variations in medieval documents, with Samuel Seyer enumerating 47 alternative forms.
Shaw derived the name from the Celtic words bras quick, rapid , or braos a gap, chasm, and tuile a stream. The poet Thomas Chatterton popularised a derivation from Brictricstow linking the town to Brictric , the last king of Wessex. It appears that the form Bricstow prevailed until ,  and the Bristolian ‘L’ the tendency for the local dialect to add the sound “L” to many words ending in a neutral vowel is what eventually changed the name to Bristol.
History of Bristol and Timeline of Bristol Robert Ricart’s map of Bristol, drawn when he became common clerk of the town in At the centre, it shows the High Cross. The Bristol merchants subsequently played a prominent role in funding Richard Strongbow de Clare and the Norman invasion of Ireland. The stone bridge built in was replaced by the current bridge during the s. During the 16th century, Bristol merchants concentrated on developing trade with Spain and its American colonies. Augustine founded by Robert Fitzharding four hundred years earlier  became Bristol Cathedral.
Bristol also gained city status that year.
