Paul Pogba mocks his infamous penalty run-up - by racing a tortoise

The Manchester United midfielder has raised many an eyebrow with his unique method of taking a spot kick

Despite currently nursing an injury, Manchester United star Paul Pogba is still very much keeping himself active.

The midfielder has taken to social media to once again mock his now infamous penalty taking style.

Pogba's unique method sees him taking a number of short steps as he very slowly approaches the ball before striking it.

The United man posted a video of himself recreating that eye-catching run alongside a tortoise and posting the caption: "I’m not THAT slow".

Having been designated United's penalty taker for the season, the strange technique has seen some success against the likes of Leicester City, brighton and in the Champions League v Young Boys.

Huge crash mars Macau F3 showpiece, as Red Bull junior Ticktum takes victory

2018 Macau GP

Motorsport is all about fine margins and pushing the limits - limits that separate glory from defeat, and also those that separate control from chaos. So while Dan Ticktum mastered Sunday’s FIA F3 World Cup in Macau, the race every aspiring F1 driver wants to win, his triumph was tinged with a wider concern for Sophia Florsch, who suffered a terrifying aerial crash - from which she emerged conscious but with a fractured spine...

Just four laps into the event Florsch fell victim to one of the biggest crashes in memory when she was launched over the barriers at high speed.

Having been quickly attended to by medical crews, the FIA confirmed that the 17-year-old German was conscious when extracted from her car and transferred to hospital, and she has since tweeted that she is ‘fine’ but will have surgery tomorrow on a suspected spinal fracture.

One marshal and two photographers also sustained injuries in the incident according to race organisers.

When the race was eventually re-started, following a lengthy red flag period, it was Red Bull junior driver Dan Ticktum who seized control, crossing the line 1.2s clear of Swede Joel Eriksson.

Ticktum’s victory – his second successive at the famous street course – will provide the perfect boost for the British driver, coming just a month after he lost out on the European F3 title to Mick Schumacher. The German had been hoping to repeat the exploits of his father, seven-time F1 world champion Michael, and uncle, six-time Grand Prix winner Ralf, in winning the F3 classic, which has also seen victories by the likes of Ayrton Senna and David Coulthard in the past.

Instead, it’s Ticktum who will take the plaudits, and with it serve another reminder to Red Bull motorsport boss Helmut Marko of his credentials.

There is, of course, still a seat open at Toro Rosso next season, though as it stands Ticktum does not have the required points for a Super Licence, the current points-scoring metric having been ironically put in place following Max Verstappen’s early graduation to F1 under the guidance of Red Bull at the tender age of 17.

If anyone is interested I am Top40 online. In the real world my name is David Russell Ellenberger. I am a SWM 57 and live in Louisville, Ky. I started about 4 years ago. I wasn't exactly sure what I wanted the website to be about but I liked the idea of people voting on items in ranked lists. The voting on these ranked lists will move the items up or down in the rankings you vote by clicking the + or - buttons below or next to the item in a list, refresh the page and the item will then appear in it's new ranking. IMHO voting really is one of the most important things you can do. Your vote is literally worth millions of dollars and that's one thing the politicians want you to do but don't want you to think about in that way. In other words vote for me I'm the best and I'm for this I'm for that I am for all the things that you want and that's why should vote for me. In reality what its about is control over you and money. So next time you vote you should demand to get paid. But I digress that's voting on items is just one of the reasons I started I also wanted to get my point out to the people and hopefully other people will want to use my website to get their point out or at least create their own lists. I had hoped for this to be another social media website. That hasn't really happened and I have been online for almost 5 years now. More about that later.


Everyone thinks just put your website up and they will come but that's not really the case. Part of the problem is search engines like Google have almost complete control of the web and all the traffic on it and they want you to pay. They also don't like other social media sites or search engine type sites they are what's known in the business as viral sites or sites that mostly contain links and not much original content which is exactly what Google is. But I maintain that links are part of the branding and the way you show your links to the world is an original aspect of any website and part of the branding and is orginal content in and of itself. But Google doesn't think so, Because that's what they are and they of course want complete control and they have it and no one seems to care. I didn't care until I started this website. But again I digress.


Back to the point. Why I started this website. Well another reason was to make money you can sell things or you can put advertising on your website. You can go out and sell advertising yourself or simply sign up for advertising services that have already sold the advertising and put the ads on your website for you. Services like this from Google and it's advertising service called adsense. If you read up on the internet how to make money with a website You will eventually find Adsense and various websites will tell you you can make tens of thousands with website adverting its so easy. And that may be true just from a numbers point of view but then reality sets in. More coming in a few days. Thanks for reading....
