first_imgManchester United may have won 1-0 at Liverpool on Sunday afternoon – but that didn’t stop a raging Reds fan labelling Louis van Gaal’s side ‘garbage.’The hosts dominated the majority of the play and United were hugely indebted to David de Gea’s heroics for keeping them level before Wayne Rooney’s crucial late winner.The Red Devils showed very little intent throughout a tame affair at Anfield and Rooney’s winner proved to be their only shot on target in the entire 90 minutes.And Tony, a Liverpool fan, was scathing of the visitors’ performance when speaking to Jason Cundy and Danny Higginbotham on Call Collymore in the aftermath of the game.“Man United were absolutely garbage,” he said.“That it was one of the worst Man United teams I’ve ever seen come to Liverpool. They did nothing in that game, absolutely nothing.”Tony also had some choice words for Reds’ striker Christian Benteke who was ineffectual in a late cameo as Jurgen Klopp’s charges chased an equaliser.Listen to the entertaining call in full above.last_img read more

first_imgSACRAMENTO – California’s largest workers’ compensation insurance company spent billions of dollars with virtually no oversight and mislabeled hundreds of millions of dollars in payments to businesses with direct financial ties to its board members, according to a state audit published Tuesday. With the quasi-governmental State Compensation Insurance Fund already racked by a criminal investigation, the audit found that it operates without clear conflict-of-interest rules, minimum qualifications for its board members or accountable leadership. Although it is comparable in size to some of the state’s largest companies, it has no chief financial officer, chief operating officer, chief investment officer or chief technology officer. The audit found that the fund incorrectly classified more than $500 million as legal or auditing fees over the past decade that went to industry associations for contracts that until this year required no specific services and were never audited. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWhicker: Clemson demonstrates that it’s tough to knock out the champThe fund, which handles about a quarter of California’s workers’ compensation claims, also wasted money on technology contracts, paying firms more than $320 million since 2004 for projects that sometimes were never authorized or completed, the audit said. In one instance, the fund approved a firm to provide IT security, but never gave it authority to monitor data or protect against hackers systemwide. The fund is California’s largest writer of workers’ compensation insurance and serves as the insurer of last resort for workers’ compensation claims. It controls about 23 percent of claims in the state, down from a high of 53 percent in 2003 before reforms increased competition. The San Francisco-based fund operates as a private company but is headed by a board appointed mostly by the governor. In a statement, Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger said the audit’s findings were troubling. The fund “plays a critical role in the insurance market and we should accept nothing less than the highest ethical standards,” he said. The audit released Tuesday by state Insurance Commissioner Steve Poizner comes amid an ongoing joint criminal investigation by state insurance investigators, the California Highway Patrol and the San Francisco District Attorney’s Office. Two of the fund’s directors resigned last November amid concerns about conflicts of interest. Frank DelRe, an appointee of former-Gov. Gray Davis, and Kent Dagg, a Schwarzenegger appointee, also were executives with companies that received about $25 million in what were called administrative fees from the insurance fund in 2005, Poizner said earlier this year. Poizner said that because of the ongoing criminal investigation, Tuesday’s audit did not directly address any potential criminal wrongdoing. However, the audit did identify potential conflicts with two unnamed past board members. It said the board paid more than $140 million to an entity controlled by a board member from 2003 through 2006 and more than $125 million to associations affiliated with another member of the board from 2004 through 2006.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
