Keane: “I would have lynched De Gea at rest”

first_imgPremier League* Data updated as of March 2, 2020 The play did not like a former player and commentator like Roy Keane, which ensures that if he had been on the grass he would have finished him: “As a coach or as a player I would have killed him. You would have killed him!” The Englishman does not understand the reason why it took so long to get a ball that did not involve any danger: “He is a goalkeeper too smart. It just takes too long. What are you waiting for?”Keane also explains that at a key moment of the season and with a campaign as mediocre as the one the club is doing, those failures cannot be allowed, since that goal cost him two points: “If you’re going to make a decision, at least make it quick. These are very important moments for United when it comes to entering the Top-4 and if you have an experienced goalkeeper … what are you waiting for?”Cross out the “arrogant” goalkeeper for waiting for the strikers to approach him as if he were trying to get attention: “I think at least he’s a bit arrogant: ‘look at me …’”Finally, the former player explained that after finishing the first part he would have come for him: “I would have lynched him at rest.” David de Gea yesterday made a big mistake in the match that faced Everton and Manchester United (1-1). The Spanish goalkeeper received a ball to play with his feet, but he was entertained for too long and when he wanted to kick long he crossed his path Calvert-lewin. The ball hit the heel of the English striker, who jumped on his back with his leg extended, and went straight to the goal of the red devils. onelast_img read more

It costs just over 1 to rent one of their rides

And, the argument goes, scooters also help the environment by reducing carbon emissions, so it’s a win-win.But so far, neither Bird nor Lime have found a way to win big. Last year, The Information published a presentation that Bird reportedly gave to investors that revealed the company had a gross profit margin of 19% on its rides. But when operational costs are factored in—like employee costs, rent, and other expenses—the company was hemorrhaging cash, according to a Crunchbase report from last year.That’s some eye-opening context to the company’s Wednesday announcement that it will sell its newest scooter directly to the public. When it’s released this summer, the Bird One scooter will cost an eye-popping $1,300 and come in a choice of Jet Black, Dove White, and Electric Rose. And, of course, Bird noted, preorders are available immediately.What is Bird thinking?The company has not only built its business on scooter sharing, but its customers have been conditioned to share—not buy—scooters.And though a ride costs less than a latte, for scooter companies, the opportunities are clear. In an interview with Inc. earlier this year, mobility analyst Horace Dediu said the market opportunity for scooter companies is huge. “We’re talking trillions of dollars,” he said.But, that price.At $1,300, Bird is asking consumers to drop a considerable amount of cash to buy an electric scooter that they could otherwise rent—just down the street, from Bird, no less—for $1. (They then pay a nominal fee—15 cents—for every minute they’re rolling around town.)According to the presentation published in The Information, Bird users’ average ride came to $3.65, so they’d need to be a serious scooter user to come anywhere close to spending $1,300 in rental fees.Yet heavy Bird users already have a way to subsidize their two-wheeled addiction. Just last week, the company unveiled a new rental program that lets customers ditch the per-ride charge and pay a flat, $25-per-month fee to ride its shared scooters. The program, which will be tested in San Francisco and Barcelona before it rolls out globally, allows for unlimited rides.“Renting a Bird for an entire month of unlimited use will cost less than just a couple of ride hail trips or parking garage days in most cities,” Bird CEO Travis VanderZanden said at the time.At an annual cost of $300 per year, Bird’s personal rental program would require four years of monthly participation before it would be smarter to shell out $1,300 for a Bird One to call your own.But the move to sell scooters also brings Bird new competition, now coming from the retail scooter market.For example, Chinese electronics maker Xiaomi sells a long-range, high-end scooter called the Mi Electric Scooter for $448 on Amazon. Meanwhile, the top-of-the-line Swagtron 5 Elite, a scooter designed for heavy city use, will set riders back $350. The Swagtron Swagger 2 Classic, meanwhile, is designed for both adults and children and goes for $200.Yet it’s likely that Bird isn’t thinking of consumers’ pockets, as much as it’s thinking of its own. (Bird did not respond to Fortune’s request for comment.)Until now, the company hasn’t had much trouble funding its business. According to Crunchbase, it’s raised $415 million across five investment rounds and most recently secured a $2 billion valuation.But eventually, investors want to see a game plan for actually generating profits. And the more of its own cash that Bird can use to fund its business, the less it’ll need to raise next time around. Making more money, in other words, is critical.Bird ostensibly believes that selling a wildly expensive scooter is the path to that. The company told investors last year, according to The Information, that it pays $551 for each scooter. Assuming a similar cost on the Bird One, the company could stand to make hundreds of dollars on each sale and boost margins.In an interview with The Verge, Bird’s CEO Travis VanderZanden said the move makes sense. He said his company’s goal is to “not just do sharing, but to do sharing, rent, and own.”He’s now gotten his wish.
