  7. Inspector Ricciardi: From Friday 10th March, All4/Walter Presents Inspector Ricciardi, an Italian period crime drama, will hit our screens next month. Naples, 1932. Inspector Ricciardi is no ordinary detective. The police commissioner is haunted by the ghosts of people who were violently killed, and can hear their final thoughts. It is a gift he inherited from his mother, and he doesn’t hesitate to use his chilling connection to the echoes of the dead to solve Naples’ most vicious murder cases. Thus, this extraordinary gift is both a blessing and a curse. BBC Four confirms transmission date for Paris Police 1905 Two years ago we were bowled over by Paris Police1900, a handsome, turn-of-the-20th-century crime drama set in Paris (the clue’s in the name, we guess). It examined politics, riots, race, addiction and class in a sumptuous, sprawling story. And it’s coming back for a second series. Now set in 1905 (again, the clue is in the name) Paris Police 1905 follows Paris police’s vice squad – on the orders of Police Chief Lépine – as it begins to clean prostitutes off the city’s streets. However, a man’s body is found in the Bois de Boulogne and Inspector Antoine Jouin is entrusted with the investigation. Here’s a French-language trailer: The six-episode series will once again be told in weekly double-bills. Paris Police 1905: Saturday 4th March, 9pm, BBC Four

  9. John Henry: Liverpool not for sale Speaking to the Boston Sports Journal, the 73-year-old was asked about potential plans to sell the Boston Red Sox, and instead discussed the situation at Anfield. “I know there has been a lot of conversation and quotes about LFC, but I keep to the facts: we merely formalised an ongoing process,” he replied. “Will we be in England forever? No. Are we selling LFC? No. Are talking with investors about LFC? Yes. Will something happen there? I believe so, but it won’t be a sale. Have we sold anything in the past 20-plus years?”
  10. Filthy pass from Trent and a filthy goal by El Chaos!
  11. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.bbc.com/sport/football/64687384.amp Footballer Christian Atsu has been found dead under the rubble of his home almost two weeks after the Turkey earthquake, his agent has confirmed. The Ghana international, 31, had spells with Premier League sides Everton, Chelsea and Newcastle. Atsu had been missing since the 6 February quake that caused the collapse of his apartment in Antakya, Hatay. "There are no words to describe our sadness," tweeted his Turkish top-flight club Hatayspor.
  12. https://www.bbc.com/sport/football/64684703 Sheikh Jassim bin Hamad Al Thani, the chairman of one of Qatar's biggest banks, has confirmed his foundation will bid to buy Manchester United. BBC Sport understands that Ineos, owned by Sir Jim Ratcliffe, also officially made a bid before Friday's 22:00 GMT 'soft deadline' for proposals. Sheikh Jassim's Qatari consortium said: "The bid plans to return the club to its former glories. "The bid will be completely debt free via Sheikh Jassim's Nine Two Foundation, which will look to invest in the football teams, the training centre, the stadium and wider infrastructure, the fan experience and the communities the club supports. "The vision of the bid is for Manchester United to be renowned for footballing excellence, and regarded as the greatest football club in the world." Described as a life-long Manchester United fan, Sheikh Jassim is chairman of Qatari bank QIB and the son of a former prime minister of Qatar. His consortium did not provide any details on the amount they proposed to purchase the club for. There are also expected to be at least two offers for United from the United States, while there have been suggestions of interest from Saudi Arabia. That means there could be up to five parties trying to negotiate a full sale, with others looking to make a smaller investment in return for a partial stake in the 20-time English league champions
