Budapest Has a Grand New Hotel

  Budapest Has a Grand New Hotel As the 19th century careened into the 20th, the population of Central European cities exploded. So, too, did the number of imaginative—mind blowing, really—buildings that to this day make Prague, Vienna, and Budapest some of the most beautiful cities in the world. Buildings were made of elaborately carved stone, tiles in shocking colors, and architectural elements right out of a Mucha illustration. While we think of the Austro-Hungarian nobility at this time as stuffy and stuck in the past, some were not and got in on the action.

Palace youngsters to make the most of the club's redeveloped academy and urged them to draw belief from his own journey.

The 51-year-old returned to his boyhood side on Thursday to officially open their academy base in Copers Cope Road which has been transformed over the last 18 months following a £20m investment.

Southgate, who came through the Palace academy and went on to captain the side to First Division title success in 1994, cut the ribbon to open a site which will house more than 220 players and hosts six full-size pitches plus various classrooms.

It had been another turbulent week for Newcastle, having dismissed Steve Bruce on Wednesday and placing his assistant Graeme Jones in interim charge for the next two games. © Getty Callum Wilson brings Newcastle level with an overhead kick It was a tough assignment at Selhurst Park too, with Crystal Palace unbeaten at home under Patrick Vieira this season. The hosts dominated the first half, but had little to show for it at the break.

"Without Crystal Palace, none of my journey happens. I had 10 years here and it is an amazing football club," the Three Lions boss told an audience which included former managers and players in addition to the current staff at the Selhurst Park club.

"I am conscious there are people here who have had longer and more illustrious careers than I have, Patrick (Vieira) and Roy (Hodgson) in particular, and people who over the years have spent a lot more time dedicating their lives to Crystal Palace.

"My journey was a little bit different so what I can say is for me everything started here as a 14-year-old schoolboy.

White is finding out the hard way how big expectation is at Arsenal

  White is finding out the hard way how big expectation is at Arsenal Ben White, who joined in the summer for £50m, had looked like he was settling in in an Arsenal shirt following a shaky start but he is back under the microscope - and back in the firing line.Arsenal is a club that has prided itself on having some of the defensive greats: think Tony Adams, think Sol Campbell, think Martin Keown and think Pat Rice. That famous quartet, among others, set standards in north London, showed a level of toughness and determination that led to multiple titles.

"Hopefully that gives lads in the academy, parents and people who work here belief that you can start here and have an international career with England. And frankly if I can end up in charge of the national team anything is possible!"

While Palace are located in south London which has been referred to as a hotbed of talent, often the best from the area have moved elsewhere.

Jadon Sancho, Callum Hudson-Odoi and Emile Smith Rowe are recent examples but the transformation of the academy to ensure it is now Category One graded could help convince the biggest talents in the area to stay at Palace.

Southgate reflected on his own journey through the Eagles youth team and challenged those in the set-up currently to make the most of the facilities.

He said: "At Palace, we had a resilience but when we did travel to Highbury or Tottenham, we did feel a bit inferior.

"Young players coming in now will feel just as special as any of the other clubs in the Premier League because the facilities are going to match that. The onus now is on everybody to bring it alive.

In the birthday broadcast on TF1 this Saturday, October 30, Jérémy and Maud, the fifth season, came back on their mutual favorite. "But I tell you anyway ... I love you." by making them interpret in duet the famous song of Patrick Bruel at one of the premiums of the Star Academy , the production had only put words on the very

"Also what we found at St George's Park is we had facilities that players could be proud of and that created a culture where coaches could have those conversations, could mix and learn from each other.

"The building didn't change things but it was a catalyst for change and that is the opportunity you have now. You have a blank canvas and a brilliant facility with a board that is saying we care about youth development, we care about our young players and now it is over to you to make it happen."

Current boss Patrick Vieira brought over his squad while various ex-players and managers like Hodgson and Alan Smith were present.

Palace chairman Steve Parish paid tribute to Southgate for pushing him to transform the Beckenham base.

"In the next 50 years I believe this will touch a vast number of lives in south London and transform not only our club and team but make a real difference to our local area," Parish said.

"The success the England team are enjoying now under Gareth's tutelage are not just a product of what he does as a coach but also the many years he has spent talking people like me into making things like this a reality."
