If blanket travel bans, quarantine measures and lack of testing continues, a further 27 per cent will run out of cash in the first half of next year, resulting in 88 per cent of agents running out of cash before June. This means – in a rather hypothetical situation that there will only be 12 per cent of travel agents still in business next summer.- Advertisement – – Advertisement – OlderChile leads winners at 2020 Latin America World Travel Awards Julia Lo Bue-Said, chief executive at the Advantage Travel Partnership said: “When will the government wake up and see that an industry is collapsing in front of them? “These results are deeply concerning, but sadly are indicative of many businesses throughout the travel industry. “We need an exit strategy from our government to outline how we are going to move forwards. – Advertisement – A new report from the Advantage Travel Partnership has found that 61 per cent of travel agents will run out of cash by the end of this year.The travel agent consortium released the findings as the UK enters a second lockdown, which effectively prohibits overseas and domestic travel. – Advertisement –last_img read more

Bring it on! Five things Man United fans are saying about the new season

first_img 1. ‘Rooney must score more goals!’ – to find out four more things United fans are saying, click the arrow above – Wayne Rooney is hoping playing as a centre forward will see him hit the 20-goal mark, but the team can’t just rely on the captain. “Whether we can win the title [in the next two seasons] is dependable if we can buy players with speed and creativity,” manager Louis van Gaal said. This should be no problem if the rumours are true and manager Van Gaal is able to play a front three containing the speed and trickery of Memphis Depay, Rooney and Spain forward Pedro, who has been linked with a £22m transfer. That trio spell goals and United fans are demanding Rooney fills his boots. Man United’s problematic midfield has been fixed, with the additions of Bastian Schweinsteighter and Morgan Schneiderlin, meaning there is no need for the reliance on Michael Carrick.Unsettled winger Angel Di Maria has left, to the delight of the Old Trafford faithful, however, there are other things the club still must do before and during the 2015/16 season.Click the yellow arrow above, right, to see four things that need to happen. For all Man United news click here. 5 3. ‘Don’t sell De Gea!’ – click the arrow above, right, to see what else Man United must do this season, according to the fans – David De Gea’s future is still not clear and if he leaves, Van Gaal will be left with Sergio Romero as a first team goalie. He wants Victor Valdes out and Anders Lindegaard has not had a look in, which could be why reports linking United with Hugo Lloris has resurfaced. 5 2. ‘Sign a world class centre-back!’ – click the arrow above, right, to see what else Man United must do this season, according to the fans – There is need for a commanding presence at the back, someone who would at least make it difficult for a player like Zlatan Ibrahimovic to score the type of goal he did for PSG against United in a recent friendly. The striker prodded home from close range after being allowed to run through the middle of defence without a challenge and with Phil Jones and Chris Smalling injured a lot, this is likely to be a priority. Daley Blind, as versatile as he is, seems better utilised elsewhere. 4. ‘Start the season as we mean to go on – winning!’ Click to see one final thing fans want United to do – It sounds obvious, but the last two seasons have not been the best of starts. Swansea won 2-1 at Old Trafford last August and United did not pick up their first win until the 4-0 hammering of QPR on 14 September. This followed draws with Sunderland and Burnley and an embarrassing defeat to MK Dons. In the 2013/14 season, they lost to Liverpool early on and were held to a 0-0 draw at home against Chelsea. Andy Cole highlighted the need for a strong start when speaking to manutd.com: “It doesn’t matter if you get drawn the tough games early doors because you have got to win those tough games,” he said. 5 5. ‘Let’s reclaim OUR trophy’ – United have lifted the Premier League trophy 13 times – nine more than the next best, Chelsea. After two campaigns in which United were well off the pace, this time around a title challenge seems realistic. “I feel this season for the first time, rather than the last two seasons, we’re ready to challenge again,” said Wayne Rooney. Even if the title doesn’t go to Old Trafford, it’s important that a trophy is put in the cabinet. Not since the 1980s have United gone so long without winning major silverware. 5 5last_img read more
