first_imgJurgen Klopp insisted there was no reason for Liverpool to parade the Champions League trophy ahead of their win over Norwich City, saying it was time to move on. Liverpool secured their sixth European Cup with a win over Tottenham in the final in Madrid in June. But they opted not to parade the trophy on Friday, when they opened their Premier League campaign with a 4-1 victory over Norwich at Anfield.  Article continues below Editors’ Picks Emery out of jail – for now – as brilliant Pepe papers over Arsenal’s cracks What is Manchester United’s ownership situation and how would Kevin Glazer’s sale of shares affect the club?

Asked about that decision, Klopp was seemingly unaware of the possibility, but said he would not have done it anyway. “Nobody told me I have to. Is that what you do usually? I touched the Euro cup on the matchday there, the day after, and since then not,” he told a news conference. “No reason for it, I know how it feels. And people know how it looks. “If somebody expected that then somebody should’ve told me. I’m pretty sure I wouldn’t have done it anyway, because we are now in the new season. Enough celebration. “Nobody has to congratulate me anymore, but still everybody’s doing it. I’m really fine with all the things I heard about it, now let’s play the new season.” A calf injury to goalkeeper Alisson soured Liverpool’s win , which came thanks to first-half goals from Mohamed Salah, Virgil van Dijk and Divock Origi after Grant Hanley’s seventh-minute own goal. Alisson 2018-19But Klopp says Adrian, who came in for the injured Alisson, is ready to play.  “He’s a confident guy,” the Reds boss said. “I don’t think he wanted to sit on the bench for the next couple of years, he made himself ready. “It’s a situation, but if you’re in a situation like this you want to have somebody who’s played in the league, who’s experienced.  “He’s 32, a calm guy, good with his feet as we saw. That’s important for us, so a lot of good things, but you still don’t want to have a situation where only one goalie is fit.” Liverpool have a quick turnaround, with the club set to face a UEFA Super Cup final against Chelsea on Wednesday before returning to league action against Southampton next Saturday.   Subscribe to Goal’s Liverpool Correspondent Neil Jones’ weekly email bringing you the best Liverpool FC writing from around the weblast_img read more

Millennials have finally worked out how to use social media to be

first_img“So a lot of apps that older millennials are using now are really geared towards embedding that within your social life.”Older millennials are also the last generation to remember a time before the internet – so might place a higher value on face-to-face interaction, she added. “At this age they’re investing in relationships and in identity-building activities and experiences which allow you to explore what’s out in the world and try new things,” she said. Younger millennials were spending less time on average “actively” socialising, than they were in 2000, suggesting that they were spending more time at home on activities such as computer games. Despite its name, social media may be making us less sociable. But one age group is bucking the trend. Older millennials are the only group who have successfully harnessed online apps and platforms – and are spending more time actively socialising than they were before, experts say. Figures from the Office for National Statistics show that the amount of time spent eating out, going to the theatre and cinema and playing sport by those aged 26 to 36 has risen from 35.5 per cent to 36.5 per cent from 2000 to 2015 – the only age group where the figure has risen. Among 46 to 55 year-olds the number has fallen from 32.6 per cent in 2000 to 30.3 per cent in 2015, and the overall time spent socialising among all age groups has fallen to six hours a week, a 12.7 per cent fall since 2000. “It’s possible that with increased device use, people are becoming less likely to go out of their way to meet up and socialise,” the ONS said. “Easy internet access enables people to talk to friends via social media apps, but they’re still doing so alone.”The figures show that those in their late twenties and early thirties are now spending the most time actively socialising, having overtaken those aged 18 to 25 in the time since 2000.  Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?
