Trevor John Francis is a former footballer who played as a forward, with most games for Birmingham City. Throughout his playing career, he played for several clubs in England, had spells in the United States and Scotland, he became England's first £1 million player following his transfer from Birmingham City to Nottingham Forest in 1979, won two consecutive European Cups with the club in 1979 and 1980. At international level, he played for England 52 times between 1976 and 1986, scoring 12 goals, played at the 1982 FIFA World Cup. Between 1988 and 2003 he was a football manager, most notably with Sheffield Wednesday and Birmingham City. Francis was born in Plymouth and educated at Plymouth's Public Secondary School for Boys, he was joined Birmingham City as a schoolboy. Francis rose in status, making his debut for Birmingham City's first team in 1970, aged just 16, his talent was noted when, before his 17th birthday, he scored four goals in a match against Bolton Wanderers. He ended his first season with 15 goals from just 22 games.
In the 1970s, Birmingham City reached the occasional domestic semi-final but failed to make a great impact in the First Division championship, so the ability and achievements of Francis were made more noticeable as a result. On 30 October 1976, he scored one of Birmingham's most famous goals, when he turned away from the touchline and cut inside four Queens Park Rangers defenders being forced backwards, before unleashing a 25-yard shot which caught the goalkeeper off guard. Francis negotiated a secondment from Birmingham in 1978 to play for the Detroit Express in the North American Soccer League, where he scored 22 goals in 19 league matches and was named to the NASL first XI alongside Franz Beckenbauer and Giorgio Chinaglia before returning home to the Midlands. However, in February 1979 came the moment which would define his career and leave his name permanently in football folklore. Nottingham Forest, the reigning First Division champions and League Cup holders managed by Brian Clough, put in a bid for Francis which totalled just over £1 million.
No player had been sold between English clubs for a seven-figure fee before, the deal was sealed, with Francis famously being introduced to the media by a manager impatient to play squash – Clough was in his red gym kit and carrying a racquet as he addressed the press conference. While recognised as the first British million-pound player, the actual transfer fee for the player was £1,150,000, including 15% commission to the Football League. Clough wrote in his autobiography that the fee was £999,999, as he wanted to ensure the million-pound milestone did not go to the player's head, although Francis says, a tongue-in-cheek remark by Clough. Nottingham Forest retained the League Cup shortly afterwards, made progress in the European Cup to the extent that they reached the semi-finals, at which point Francis was permitted by registration rules to take part, they won their semi-final, in May 1979 Forest took on Swedish club Malmö in the final in Munich, a major instalment of the huge investment money was repaid just before half time.
The ball was spread to Forest's lugubrious but skilful winger John Robertson wide on the left and he took on two defenders at once to reach the byline and curl an awkward, outswinging cross towards the far post. Francis had begun to sprint into position, but so he had to increase his pace in order to reach the cross as it dropped, ended up throwing himself low at the ball, he connected with the ball diverted powerfully into the roof of the net. Forest won the match 1–0 and footage of the goal was used in the opening titles to Match of the Day for some years afterwards. A giant picture of Francis stooping to head the ball remains on display in the main entrance and reception area of Forest's City Ground stadium. Though the season ended there, Francis duly headed back to Detroit for another summer playing in the NASL, where once again he was named to the first XI alongside Johan Cruyff and Giorgio Chinaglia, despite playing only half the season. In his brief NASL career, Francis scored 36 goals in 33 regular season matches and had 18 assists, placing him one spot ahead of Pelé on the all-time scoring list, despite playing 23 fewer games.
Francis arguably did not achieve his full potential as a Forest player. This may be due to Clough playing Francis on the right wing, rather than in his preferred position as a central attacker, he was in the side which lost the 1980 League Cup Final to Wolverhampton Wanderers, but missed the European Cup Final against Hamburg due to an injury to his Achilles tendon. Somehow the success of his Forest career never quite reflected his huge fee: he scored only 14 league goals in the 1979–80 season and 6 in the next 18 games that he played for Forest. Although still a regular for England – his Achilles injury prevented him being in the squad for the 1980 European Championships – his scoring record in club football was not spectacular; the injury kept Francis out of the game for over six months. He was sold to this time for £ 1.2 million. The deal caused behind-the-scenes friction at Manchester City. During negotiations City chairman Peter Swales informed manager John Bond that the club could not afford the transfer fee.
Bond issued an ultimatum: if Francis did not sign, Bond would resign. Francis made a promising start at the club, scoring two goals against Stoke City on his debut, but over the course of the season he was injured. In total he scored 12 goals in 26 games and made the England squad for the 1982 Worl
David Platt (footballer)
David Andrew Platt is an English former professional footballer who played as a midfielder. Born in Chadderton, Platt began his career as an apprentice at Manchester United only to move to Crewe Alexandra where he began building a reputation as a goal-scoring midfielder. At the age of 22, he signed for Aston Villa where he gained the attention of the England manager Bobby Robson, with whom he soon made his debut. At the 1990 FIFA World Cup, Platt increased his reputation by scoring goals with both head and feet, whilst displaying good technique, passing abilities, high work rates. According to Rob Bagchi in The Guardian, Platt "seized Bryan Robson's role with riveting aplomb." His performances in the World Cup earned him a move to Serie A club Bari in 1991. In 1992, Platt moved to Juventus. Platt continued scoring goals for England, playing in Euro 92 and 96. Despite his efforts, England failed to qualify for the 1994 FIFA World Cup. In 1993, he moved to Sampdoria where he stayed for two seasons before he returned to England to join up with Arsenal.
Platt played with the London club for three years, being part of the Arsenal side that won the Premier League and FA Cup Double of 1998. Platt went on to manage Nottingham Forest, as well as England's Under-21 team. Platt signed for Manchester United as an apprentice on leaving school on 24 July 1984, having been spotted playing for Chadderton, he signed professional at the start of the 1984–85 season, but was given a free transfer on 23 February 1985. Dario Gradi signed Platt for Crewe Alexandra in the Fourth Division, he established himself as a strong-running, free-scoring midfielder. He played 156 league games scoring 56 goals for the club. In the FA Cup he played three games. In the League Cup he played four games. Platt left Crewe on 2 February 1988, midway through the 1987–88 season. In 1988, he signed for Aston Villa for £200,000, in his first season at Villa Park he helped the club achieve promotion to the First Division, one season after they had been relegated, he was a frequent goalscorer for Villa, in 1989–90 took them to the brink of the league title.
Although they had to settle for runners-up spot behind Liverpool, Platt was voted PFA Players' Player of the Year. The next season, 1990–91, he continued where he left off. In a game against Arsenal he famously went in goal when Nigel Spink was injured in a 5–0 defeat to Arsenal. Platt's success with Villa was evident in his goal-scoring record. From 2 February 1988 to 21 July 1991, he played 121 League games. In the FA Cup he scored two goals in four games, while in the League Cup he scored 10 goals in 14 games. On 21 July 1991, Platt moved to Italy to play in Serie A, he signed for A. S. Bari for played 29 games, scoring 11 goals. In the Italian league, where goals were difficult to come by owing to the defensiveness of the Italian style for a midfielder, this was considered an impressive achievement; the 1991–92 Serie A season ended in relegation for Platt and Bari. During his time at Bari, Platt received a phone call from Roberto Mancini in January 1992, who pressed him to come to Sampdoria. From the moment Platt – the 1990 PFA Players' Player of the Year at Aston Villa and one of Bobby Robson's shining lights at the World Cup finals of the same year – left England in a transfer-record move to Serie A club Bari, Mancini saw the asset he would be at Sampdoria, where the Italian was captain.
Platt's first telephone call from Mancini came as a surprise, in January 1992. "We'd played Sampdoria a few times and I'd faced Robbie," Platt recalls. "But I didn't know him and he'd tracked my number from somewhere. He said:'I know you've got a good relationship with your president, I'm sure you could push through a move to us.'" In the end, Platt chose Juventus. In June 1992, Platt was signed for Juventus for £6.5 million. In domestic competitions Platt struggled to maintain a first-team place in the Juventus team that season, which possessed many stars, he did score a decisive goal against S. S. C. Napoli in a 4–3 victory, giving the team a chance at the league title, he helped the Turin club win the UEFA Cup. Platt wasn't listed on the substitutes bench, however he picked up a medal as part of the squad and lifted the trophy after the final. In Serie A, he scored three goals in 16 games. Mancini persisted despite his move to Turin. "Every two weeks he would be on the phone, pressing me." When things failed to work out in Turin, the move Mancini wanted did happen.
"Juventus played Sampdoria, Robbie was playing, so I was marking him and hovering around him, hoping he would say something," Platt remembers. "I've always suspected I wasn't on Sampdoria's list that summer, because their president wanted to sign Marco Osio from Parma but he ran the transfer list past Robbie, who had much of the say. I soon made the move." Platt signed for Sampdoria on 14 July 1993 for £5.2 million. Platt won the Coppa Italia in 1994 under Swede Sven-Göran Eriksson, who would manage the England national football team from 2001 to 2006. By the time his Italian career came to a close, he was a technically experienced player, possessing dribbling and finishing skills equal to the best. Platt played for two years, until 14 July 1995, he played 55 League games for Sampdoria. Arsenal signed him for £4.75 million on 10 July 1995. Platt was signed by David Dein as one of the first signings under new manager Bruce Rioch. Rioch cut short a holiday in Portugal to bring Platt to Arsenal. Platt had been offered a two-year extension to his contract with the Genoese club, but his mind was soon made up after talking to Rioch in Sardinia where he was

It is a competition held for teen readers to enter to have the chance to win a modelling career. The competition first started in 1992 and ended in 2002 when the editor in chief of Dolly, Mia Freedman felt it gave a negative impression towards young teenage girls and the Dolly brand.

A comparison of Dolly Doctor with other Australian magazines found that Dolly Doctor gave the most accurate health advice.
Dolly Doctor closed in 2016. In 2005, Dolly came into media attention for taking advantage of young people wanting to get into the magazine industry. Dolly was accused of soliciting and ridiculing unpaid articles from hopeful young women looking for a job in magazine journalism. In Dolly's May 2007 issue featuring Christina Aguilera on the cover, controversy reigned supreme when a picture of a runway model's genitalia was published on page 24 in a section called Dollywood Gossip; the accompanying caption which included an arrow pointing to the model's genital region said "Look Closer, Eww! Not that close" and "Umm, we think you forgot something". Editor Bronwyn McCahon claimed that "It's a long story involving mag terms like "dyelines" and "corrupted PDFs", but we did cover the area and the little spot we used somehow fell off the page just before printing and we didn't notice".

Osvaldo César Ardiles referred to in Britain as Ossie Ardiles, is a football manager and former midfielder who won the 1978 FIFA World Cup as part of the Argentine national team. He now runs his own football school in the UK called the Ossie Ardiles Soccer School. A competitive and skilled midfielder, Ardiles became a cult hero in England, along with Glenn Hoddle and compatriot Ricardo Villa, as a player for Tottenham Hotspur, he left England for a period on loan as a result of the outbreak of the Falklands War in 1982, thus missing most of the 1982–83 English season. After retirement, Ardiles began his management career in England, coaching Swindon Town, Newcastle United and West Bromwich Albion, before returning to Tottenham to become the first Premier League manager from Argentina; as manager of Spurs in the mid-1990s, he played several matches utilizing a formation that had five forwards, a formation that hadn't been used in English football since the 1950s. During his career, Ardiles has coached in Mexico, Japan, Saudi Arabia, Malaysia and his native Argentina.
In Ireland he is a pundit for RTÉ Sport. Ardiles was born in Córdoba, played for Instituto de Córdoba from a young age; as a youngster, Ardiles played football in the streets and was given the nickname Pitón by his brother because of his snake-like dribbling skills. He was named as El Gráfico's best player of the interior in 1974, abandoned his law degree studies in order to play professional football, he played for Club Atlético Belgrano and Huracán. After the 1978 World Cup he moved to England to play for Tottenham, he helped Tottenham win the FA Cup in his third season there, collaborated with pop duo Chas & Dave as well as the rest of the Tottenham players for a song, "Ossie's Dream". He played a big part in another FA Cup triumph the following year, but did not play in the final because it had been arranged with the Spurs management that he would leave early to join up with Argentina's 1982 World Cup squad. At that tournament he wore the number 1 shirt, as Argentina's policy at the time was to number their players alphabetically by surname, with an exception made so Diego Maradona could wear his preferred number 10.
In the wake of the Falklands War between Britain and Argentina it became difficult for him to return to White Hart Lane and he went on loan to Paris Saint-Germain in France. After just one season in Paris, he returned to Tottenham, helping the club to win the UEFA Cup in 1984. In the autumn of 1987, he was caretaker manager of Tottenham between the resignation of David Pleat and the appointment of Terry Venables, he left Spurs in 1988. He played for Blackburn Rovers, Queens Park Rangers and Swindon Town, before being appointed as manager of Swindon Town in July 1989, he played part of the 1989 American Soccer League season with the Fort Lauderdale Strikers. On 7 February 2008, along with his fellow countryman Ricardo Villa, was inducted into the Tottenham Hotspur Hall of Fame. Ardiles was called up to the Argentina senior team by manager César Luis Menotti in 1975, he was a member of the World Cup winning squad in 1978. In July 1989, Ardiles moved into football management with second division Swindon Town when Lou Macari resigned to join West Ham in July 1989.
He wowed fans by replacing the long ball style, so successful with a new "Samba style", which saw the Town playing attacking football. Part of this change was the new "diamond formation" which Ardiles implemented: a 4–4–2 style with left-sided, right-sided and defensive midfielders. Ten months after he had joined, Ardiles led Swindon to their highest league position, finishing fourth in the second division. After beating Blackburn in the first leg of the play-off semi-final, the fans paid tribute with a tickertape reception in the second leg. Swindon went on to win promotion to the top flight for the first time in their history—beating Sunderland in the Play-Off Final—only to have the promotion taken from them ten days when the Football League demoted them for irregular payments to players; the following season, Ardiles was told to sell players to keep the club alive and Wembley hero Alan McLoughlin was the first big-money departure. With Swindon rocked by their pre-season troubles, their form deserted them.
By the end of February, relegation threatened, when Newcastle offered Ardiles the chance to become their new boss, he accepted, becoming the club's first foreign manager. But his time on Tyneside was not a success and he lasted 12 months in the job before being sacked, with the Magpies bottom of the second division, though they achieved safety under his successor Kevin Keegan. In June 1992 Ardiles replaced Bobby Gould as manager of West Bromwich Albion, who had just missed out on the third division playoffs in 1991–92. At the end of the 1992–93 season, Ardiles guided Albion to victory over Port Vale in the Division Two playoff final. Shortly afterwards he walked out of the Hawthorns to return his former club Tottenham as manager, but his management spell was nowhere near as successful as his spell as a player. Tottenham finished 15th in the Premiership and despite the expensive acquisition of Jürgen Klinsmann, Ilie Dumitrescu and Gheorghe Popescu in the 1994 close season, Ardiles was sacked in October 1994 with Tottenham languishing in the bottom half of the Premier League.
They had just been punished for financial irregularities committed during the late 1980s: with a 1-year FA Cup ban, £600,000 fine and 12 league points deducted. The punishment was amended to a £1.5million fine and six points deducted but the FA Cup ban and points deduction were quashed. Ardiles became coach of J. League D
The Sun (United Kingdom)
The Sun is a tabloid newspaper published in the United Kingdom and Republic of Ireland. As a broadsheet, it was founded in 1964 as a successor to the Daily Herald, it is published by the News Group Newspapers division of News UK, itself a wholly owned subsidiary of Rupert Murdoch's News Corp. Since The Sun on Sunday was launched in February 2012, the paper has been a seven-day operation; the Sun had the largest circulation of any daily newspaper in the United Kingdom, but it was overtaken by rival Metro in March 2018. In 2012, The Sun on Sunday was launched to replace the closed News of the World, employing some of its former journalists; the average circulation for The Sun on Sunday in January 2019 was 1,178,687. In January 2019, it had an average daily circulation of 1.4 million. The Sun has been involved in many controversies in its history, including its coverage of the 1989 Hillsborough football stadium disaster. Regional editions of the newspaper for Scotland, Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland are published in Glasgow and Dublin respectively.
The Sun was first published as a broadsheet on 15 September 1964, with a logo featuring a glowing orange disc. It was launched by owners IPC to replace the failing Daily Herald; the paper was intended to add a readership of "social radicals" to the Herald's "political radicals". There was "an immense and superior middle class, hitherto undetected and yearning for its own newspaper", wrote Bernard Shrimsley of Abrams' work forty-years later. "As delusions go, this was in the El Dorado class". Launched with an advertising budget of £400,000, the brash new paper "burst forth with tremendous energy", according to The Times, its initial print run of 3.5 million was attributed to "curiosity" and the "advantage of novelty", had declined to the previous circulation of the Daily Herald within a few weeks. By 1969, according to Hugh Cudlipp, The Sun was losing about £2m a year and had a circulation of 800,000. IPC decided to sell to stop the losses, according to Bernard Shrimsley in 2004, out of a fear that the unions would disrupt publication of the Mirror if they did not continue to publish the original Sun.
Bill Grundy wrote in The Spectator in July 1969 that although it published "fine writers" in Geoffrey Goodman, Nancy Banks-Smith and John Akass among others, it had never overcome the negative impact of its launch at which it still resembled the Herald. The pre-Murdoch Sun was "a worthy, leftish, popular broadsheet" in the opinion of Patrick Brogan in 1982. Book publisher and Member of Parliament Robert Maxwell, eager to buy a British newspaper, offered to take it off their hands and retain its commitment to the Labour Party, but admitted there would be redundancies among the printers. Rupert Murdoch, had bought the News of the World, a sensationalist Sunday newspaper, the previous year, but the presses in the basement of his building in London's Bouverie Street were unused six days a week. Seizing the opportunity to increase his presence on Fleet Street, he made an agreement with the print unions, promising fewer redundancies if he acquired the newspaper, he assured IPC that he would publish a "straightforward, honest newspaper" which would continue to support Labour.
IPC, under pressure from the unions, rejected Maxwell's offer, Murdoch bought the paper for £800,000, to be paid in instalments. He would remark: "I am amazed at the ease with which I entered British newspapers"; the Daily Herald had been printed in Manchester since 1930, as was the Sun after its original launch in 1964, but Murdoch stopped publication there in 1969 which put the ageing Bouverie Street presses under extreme pressure as circulation grew. Murdoch found he had such a rapport with Larry Lamb over lunch that other potential recruits as editor were not interviewed and Lamb was appointed as the first editor of the new Sun. Lamb wanted Bernard Shrimsley to be his deputy, which Murdoch accepted as Shrimsley had been the second name on his list of preferences. Lamb was scathing in his opinion of the Daily Mirror, where he had been employed as a senior sub-editor, shared Murdoch's view that a paper's quality was best measured by its sales, he regarded the Mirror as overstaffed, too focused on an ageing readership.
Godfrey Hodgson of The Sunday Times interviewed Murdoch at this time and expressed a positive view of the rival's "Mirrorscope" supplement. "If you think we're going to have any of that upmarket shit in our paper," Murdoch replied dropping a sample copy into a bin, "you're much mistaken". Lamb hastily recruited a staff of about 125 reporters, who were selected for availability rather than their ability; this was about a quarter of what the Mirror employed, Murdoch had to draft in staff on loan from his Australian papers. Murdoch relaunched The Sun as a tabloid, ran it as a sister paper to the News of the World; the Sun used the same printing presses, the two papers were managed together at senior executive levels. The tabloid Sun was first published on 17 November 1969, with a front page headlined "HORSE DOPE SENSATION", an ephemeral "exclusive". An editorial on page 2 announced: "Today's Sun is a new newspaper, it has new writers, new ideas. But it inherits all, best from the great traditions of its predecessors.
The Sun cares. About the quality of life. About the kind of world we live in, and about people". The first issue had an "exclusive interview" with the Labour Prime Minister, Harold Wilson, on page 9; the paper copied the rival Daily Mirror in several ways. It was the same size and its masthead had the t
