1 Stoke goalkeeper Jack Butland has signed a new contract with the club taking him through to the summer of 2021.Butland, who joined the Potters in January 2013 on a four-and-a-half-year deal, only signed a fresh contract taking him through to 2019 around a year ago.The 23-year-old has since succeeded the departed Asmir Begovic as first-choice stopper and put in a series of impressive displays this season.Reports have suggested England international Butland – linked with some major sides this term – has been rewarded by Stoke for his fine efforts with a significant pay rise.Stoke chief executive Tony Scholes said on the club’s official website: “We are naturally delighted that a player of Jack’s quality has signed a long-term contract.“We’ve always held Jack in the very highest regard but he has exceeded even our expectations since Mark (Hughes, the Stoke manager) selected him as our first choice goalkeeper.“As a club we feel it’s important that we tie down our talented young players on lengthy contracts and Jack’s new deal is a fitting reward for his progress this season.” Butland joined the Potters in 2013 from Birmingham

The outstanding Ross McCormack netted a first-half hat-trick as Fulham raced into a three-goal lead at Craven Cottage before the visitors pulled one back just before the interval.McCormack troubled Nottingham Forest’s defence from the start and went close to scoring after three minutes when his fine strike from near the edge of the penalty area was tipped over by keeper Dorius De Vries.The striker then scored twice from a similar distance in the space of 10 minutes, firing home after Hugo Rodallega’s lay-off and then sending a curling shot beyond De Vries and in off the post.It put Fulham in a commanding position, although they needed keeper Marcus Bettinelli to come to their rescue following an error by Kostas Stafylidis.The Greek’s daft back-header was a gift for the lurking Britt Assombalonga, but Bettinelli was swiftly off his line to make the save.Fulham remained in control and more good work by McCormack almost led to a goal for Seko Fofana.McCormack cleverly found Alex Kacaniklic who pulled the ball back from the left for the on-loan Manchester City midfielder, whose first-time effort was kept out by De Vries.There was nothing De Vries could do, however, when McCormack once more tried his luck from near the edge of the box and this time the ball looped into the net after taking a heavy deflection off Forest’s on-loan Chelsea defender Todd Kane.Struggling Forest, with only one win from their last 10 matches, were given hope when Henri Lansbury’s nicely-struck free-kick reduced the deficit. Fulham (4-1-2-1-2): Bettinelli; Grimmer, Hutchinson, Bodurov, Stafylidis; Parker; Fofana, Tunnicliffe, Kacaniklic; McCormack, Rodallega. Subs: Kiraly, Ruiz, Roberts, Woodrow, Dembele, Williams, Burn.

This article is only available to GBA Prime Members My father was a college professor who was respected for his scholarship. Yet Dad doesn’t pay much attention to the physical world. If he were asked to define the stack effect, he’d probably guess that it was a type of exhaustion caused by walking past miles of library bookshelves. According to a family legend, the engine of our family’s Volkswagen van had to be rebuilt in 1963 because my father drove thousands of miles without checking the dipstick or changing the engine oil.In order to own and drive a car, you don’t need to know how to replace a clutch. But most drivers would agree that it’s important to know how to check your engine oil and tire pressure.While my father’s lack of mechanical knowledge may have been extreme, many Americans can be grouped with him at the ignorant side of the mechanical knowledge spectrum. A similar spectrum exists for home performance knowledge. While some homeowners are perfectly capable of installing a new HVAC system, others wouldn’t be able to identify the purpose of their furnace if they were staring right at it.Is it reasonable to expect homeowners to understand how their homes function? Or is it only natural for a large percentage of homeowners to be ignorant about home performance?Here’s another way to pose this question: Should our government protect homeowners from unskilled and ignorant contractors? Or does this responsibility lie solely on the shoulders of homeowners?The average suburban home in the U.S. is filled with systems that are completely unknown in rural Africa or Asia. Over the past century, our houses have become more sophisticated and complicated than ever before.Instead of a wood stove in the parlor, most American homes are heated with furnaces… Start Free Trial Already a member?
