  • Diogo Jota, Arsenal target

    first_imgRubén Neves would come for the creation, and another former rojiblanco player, Diogo Jota, would contribute in the scoring facet. He is 23 years old, contract until 2022, and so far this season he has added fifteen goals and six assists in 37 matches with a team that is still far from competing with Manchester City or Liverpool, which gives it even more merit. He did two hat-tricks in the Europa League, one at Besiktas and another to Spanish. Figures on a possible offer are not yet in the works, but it is clear that the Wolves will not let them take their best footballers at any price. It has already been raised that Adama Traoré could return to the Spanish league and that the Mexican striker, Raúl Jiménez could return to Atlético de Madrid, but according to Daily Mail, Diogo Jota and Rubén Neves could head to London to play for Arsenal.

  • Michael Robinson dies

    first_imgFormer player and television commentator Michael Robinson has died on Tuesday at the age of 61 after a long fight against melanoma with metastases that he suffered since December 2018. Despite the fact that the disease was revealed to be incurable from the start, he continued to work as a commentator on Movistar + and on Cadena SER almost until the last day. ANDThe last game he narrated was, oddly, at Anfield, on March 11, in a Champions League match against Atlético de Madrid. The Reds, their Reds, were eliminated in an unforgettable match. A goal by Morata was the last he saw from the cabin. The worst news in the best scenario.Robinson’s death was announced on his own Twitter profile: “With tremendous sadness we inform you of Michael’s death. It leaves us with a great emptiness, but also countless memories, full of the same love that you have shown him. We will be eternally grateful to you for making this man so happy, he never walked alone. Thank you”. An endearing message for a man with two brilliant careers, that of footballer and that of communicator. With tremendous sadness we inform you of Michael’s death. It leaves us with a great emptiness, but also countless memories, full of the same love that you have shown him. We will be eternally grateful to you for making this man SO HAPPY, he never walked alone. Thank you– Michael Robinson (@michaelrobinson) April 28, 2020Leicester-born Robinson was always linked to the history of the Liverpool, although he debuted in 1975 in the ranks of the Preston North End. From there he went to Manchester City and then to Brighton before joining the Reds in 1983, definitely the team of his life, despite the fact that he only played two seasons. Still gave him time to conquer a League, a League Cup and the 1984 European Cup, on penalties against Roma and in Rome. “I always celebrated not having to shoot a penalty that day. I was going to throw the sixth. Many of us were afraid to screw it up. ” He was in charge of bringing the Cup to the plane, but he forgot it at the airport duty free. “Going back for it, I did the fastest sprint of my career.”DAILY AS ‘); return false; “class =” item-multimedia “>Michael Robinson, in his time as an Osasuna player.DAILY AS “Going to see Liverpool at Anfield was like Santa Claus came every fortnight. Playing there was playing for a cause, having added value. You were trying to make people proud. Those were society gladiators who lost their job with Margaret Thatcher, “Esquire recalled in an interview.From there he jumped to Queens Park Rangers, in which he would play three seasons, until his arrival at Osasuna, in 1986, now 28 years old and with too many knee injuries in tow. “I came for football and fell in love with Spain,” he has stated on several occasions. In the Navarrese team he would play three more years, in which he would score twelve goals in 59 games. “At first I didn’t even know where he was, I thought the city was called Osasuna. When I saw the penultimate team, I told my wife that I couldn’t save him, that they should have signed Spiderman or David Copperfield. He had other offers, but to sign up for Osasuna seemed very romantic to me. Before the first game I saw that there was a habit of praying before jumping onto the field. I told my father that my suspicions were confirmed, that we were so bad that we had to pray before playing. “English by birth, would play 24 games with the Irish team, due to the ancestry of her maternal family.His second careerAs soon as he retired, he began working at Eurosport and collaborating with Televisión Española, as a commentator on the matches of the English League and, subsequently, of the 1990 World Cup. His peculiar style, his sense of humor and his accent caught the attention of Alfredo Relaño, then head of sports for Canal +. Since then he began a long journalistic career, which led him to present spaces such as ‘El Día after’, by the same network, and to comment on the most interesting game of each day with his inseparable Carlos Martínez. “The Day After is the program I have always wanted to see and have never seen. It is the work of my life. I am more proud of that program than of the European Cup.”In 2007 he launched the Robinson Report program, with in-depth reports on the world of sports: “The program is not about winners and losers. It has to leave a moral. Sport is the pretext to tell stories.” Later he would spread the formula to the radio, with the Cadena SER ‘Robinson Accent’ program, where he placed special emphasis on the human face of the athletes. Throughout these years he has collaborated in various spaces of the SER and also, for a time, in the newspaper AS. In 2017 he received the Vázquez Montalbán International Prize, in the category of sports journalism.Robinson was always a multifaceted character. It was the image of a very popular video game in the nineties, PC Fútbol, and he acted as a voice actor in the animated films Shrek and Shrek 2. A devoted fan of rugby, he promoted the Super Iberica project, a professional league that did not work. He was also a director of Cádiz.last_img read more

  • Beware of dangerous Jaguars, Hope warns

    first_img PLAYING GOOD He added: “I am expecting another competitive game. Guyana is currently on a high and have been playing good cricket in the Four-Day format for quite some time. “However, a few of our guys have been coming into form with the bat and ball, and once we execute on the field, we will give ourselves the best chance of winning.” Not only did Hope make a winning start to his captaincy tenure, but the victory also coincided with the right-hander’s maiden first-class hundred. The innings – an unbeaten 105 in the second innings – helped Red Force set Volcanoes a massive 375 to win. Hope said that the handsome victory spoke volumes about how the squad embraced him as the new captain. “The team has been responding well to me being named skipper. I think the game against the Windward Islands is a good indication of the team’s response to my elevation as captain as well as the unity of our squad,” he noted. “Coming from the position we were in at the beginning of that game, and to pull off such a victory, speaks well for our dressing room. “After not having the best first half to the season, getting a win under the belt was a great confidence booster. All praises must go to the team.” Two-time defending champions Jaguars, who trounced Jamaica Scorpions in Kingston, top the standings with 84.8 points, with Scorpions second on 73 points. Barbados Pride’s win over Leeward Islands Hurricanes in Bridgetown left the third on 68 points, with Red Force fourth on 53.6 points. PORT-OF-SPAIN, Trinidad (CMC): Newly appointed Trinidad and Tobago Red Force captain, Kyle Hope says that last weekend’s comprehensive win in the Regional four-day championship has lifted the confidence levels of his side but has warned them to beware of the dangerous of Guyana Jaguars, who they clash with starting here today. Red Force trounced a hapless Windward Islands Volcanoes by 172 runs to break a run of poor form and haul themselves off the bottom of the standings into fourth spot. But Hope, who led Red Force for the first time last weekend, said he was under no illusions, about the size of the task coming up against Jaguars. “The team is in high spirits after the win against the Windward Islands Volcanoes, but we understand that the Guyana Jaguars will be a completely different challenge,” the Barbadian pointed out.last_img read more

  • Terminators, Galaxy Draw in Bomi County

    first_imgTerminators FC of APM Terminals Limited of Monrovia in their first outing in Tubmanburg, Bomi County, forced locals, Galaxy Oldtimers Sports Association, to a 1-1 draw, reports Omari Jackson.The friendly match was played last Sunday, April 27, at the C. H. Deweh sports pitch before a large crowd with the locals’  Athanasiue N. Torborg converting a penalty kick to take the lead in the second half after a goalless first half.The sports hungry fans had an afternoon of fun as old timers juggled the ball back and forth, and missing possible goals.Terminators FC’s technical director J. Armah Baxter featured briefly in a match that was meant to let APM Terminals Limited workers exercise their body, since all work without play, makes Jack a dull boy.Also on hand to show his skills was Liberia’s ex most celebrated soccer star, James Salinsa Debbah, the current technical director of the Barrolle Sports Association.Debbah’s presence brought some attention from the locals, especially those who were old enough to have seen the former soccer star in action. Many took pictures with him.On the game itself, the visitors dominated in the first half, with striker Nicholas Sieh performing his worst, as he fumbled on several occasions and could not discover his scoring boots.Both teams had near scoring chances but it was when James Debbah was brought in that the game changed dramatically. Salinsa, still possessing some of the qualities that made him Liberia’s most celebrated player, made clever passes to his men upfront and it was during his corner-kick that diminutive player Dakina Pederson headed home the equalizer.As the game came to a close, striker Nicholas Sieh has the glorious opportunity to have increased the tally and become the hero but he fumbled to end the game in a draw.Earlier, the team visited two areas of interest: the Blue Lake and the Liberia Government Hospital. At the hospital Dr. Gabriel Gorbee Logan, MD, took the team to tour the hospital.Technical director Baxter, James Debbah and several others presented biscuits to kids admitted to the hospital and wished them early recovery.The team spent some time at the Blue Lake and many of the players appealed to authorities to make it an income generation site.Meanwhile, Armah presented a soccer ball to their host, and told journalists that it was one way of identifying with the Galaxy Oldtimers Sports Association in a county of his birth.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

  • FATF on-site visit could be disastrous for Guyana – Nandlall

    first_imgThe visit by the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) later this week to observe Guyana’s regulatory practices, could prove disastrous for this country, which is still to come up to par with international financial recommendations.PPP MP Anil NandlallFormer Attorney General and Legal Affairs Minister Anil Nandlall said on Thursday last, that the Guyana Government is failing in many ways and could find itself in a “serious problem” when the monitoring team visits Guyana.“When the on-site visit takes place later this month, we might find ourselves in problems, because we don’t have an enforcement unit as recommended by the FATF”, Nandlall said during a televised interview.He noted that when they group comes to Guyana, it will find two gaping holes in the system. One, he said, will be that the country does not have a Special Organised Crime Unit (SOCU) for the purpose of the Anti-Money Laundering and Countering the Financing of Terrorism (AML/CFT) requirements. Also, he said Government has created a huge beauracratic organ, called an AML/CFT Authority, which should comprise of some 20 persons; 10 of whom will be holders of certain offices, similar to that of the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP), the Police Commissioner, the head of CANU, the Guyana Revenue Authority, etc, and the other 10 to be appointed by Parliament.Nandlall said it could be difficult since Parliament took some 15 months to appoint the Director and the Deputy Director of the critical Financial Intelligence Unit (FIU).“I don’t know how long it would take to appoint two,” he stated.Legal Affairs Minister Basil Williams had said that Guyana would soon be able to exit FATF and the Caribbean Financial Action Task Force (CFATF) when officials from FATF carry out an on-site visit here.“Having met the core recommendations for CFATF, we would have been able to exit but for the fact that Guyana had been referred under the previous Government to the FATF process after being subjected to three public statements and still haven’t corrected or implemented the recommendations. So it’s obvious we cannot exit CFATF until we exit FATF and that is why we are here because we have satisfied all those recommendations in CFATF and that is why we were able to have them do the on-site visit”, he told journalists.The on-site visit to Guyana by FATF’s five-member team will be conducted on September 14 and 15.“With the on-site visit, FATF will be looking to see if the reforms contained in the agreed action plan between Guyana and FATF, if those reforms have been introduced, implemented and sustained and if there is political commitment to sustain it,” Williams said.He added that once the team is satisfied then Government, at the next October meeting, will move a motion for them to exit the process.The team will also meet with the Attorney General and compliance team; the Finance Minister; the Director of Public Prosecutions; supervisory authorities and reporting entities, including banks and remittance services.Williams said Guyana has prepared for this visit by having its AML/CFT compliance team conducting meetings with key agencies, including the Financial Action Unit (FIU), The Special Organised Crime Unit (SOCU) and the Bank of Guyana (BoG) to sensitise them on their AML/CFT obligations.“There is no delay; Guyana has done something that is unprecedented in the FATF world and that is within a year in Government, we are poised to exit both FATF and CFATT… This is the third round. In the fourth round you will not only have to comply, but show effective compliance. The fourth round has already started because we have already been exposed to the whole issue of de-risking and the National Assessment that has started to identify risks in Guyana”, the Attorney General said about the process.last_img read more

  • Former auditor ready to testify

    first_imgCity Hall’s CoI…says criminal charges recommended since 2012Financial improprieties were uncovered at City Hall by Consultant Ramon Gaskin since 2012, when he conducted an audit at the Georgetown municipality; and, in some instances, recommendations were made for criminal charges to be pressed against those culpable.City HallGaskin has said he would provide the evidence to substantiate his recommendations based on that audit to the Commission of Inquiry (CoI) that has been ordered set up by the Local Government Commission (LGC) to look in the management and spending at City Hall.“I’m supporting the CoI; I think it is long overdue. I will be giving evidence before the CoI,” the economist told <> on Tuesday.He explained that he had produced and delivered three comprehensive reports to the then Government which had ordered a CoI.Then Local Government Minister Kellawan Lall had, in 2008, set up the CoI to investigate the state of affairs at City Hall. The minister had appointed Keith Burrowes, an economist, sole Commissioner, assisted by an eight-member team.That CoI was set up after the Auditor General had submitted on City Hall a report that revealed serious breaches in regulations and protocols by the Administration of the municipality, particularly within the City Treasurer’s Department.In 2012, Gaskin was appointed head of the Implementation Committee for the reform of the Georgetown Municipality, and was expected to breathe life into the recommendations of the 2008 CoI which was headed by Burrowes.“I wrote a report, but did two more on corrupt transactions and corrupt practices that were taking place. I wasn’t hired to do it, but as I was there and I found out things, I decided to write,” Gaskin said.He noted that none of the recommendations was enforced.Gaskin’s report had highlighted grave matters: such as the council’s financial books not being audited for years, because records were unavailable, while others were difficult to follow.He added that fraudulent transactions, including a payment made to a bogus company affiliated with a staff member’s family, had also surfaced. He said brand new compactor trucks were not put into use, but were parked; and he had uncovered fuel theft, sold resources unaccounted for, and funds missing.In early 2013, the services of four top officials of City Hall were terminated following a report submitted by the Auditor General’s Office. Those dismissed were: City Treasurer Anthony Meredith; Town Clerk Yonette Pluck; City Engineer Gregory Erskine and Head of the Solid Waste Management Unit, Hubert Urling.That AG report had revealed many irregularities, among which were failure to adhere to procurement and financial procedures and record keeping; not taking proper care of council’s assets; reckless incompetence; and, most importantly, being culpable of “failing to deliver on the services expected of the council”.Gaskin has repeatedly criticised City Hall for not accepting responsibility for non- implementation of the recommendations. He is adamant that City Hall’s failure is based specifically on the laissez faire and corrupt culture of the Councils’ operations.Asked whether he thinks this new CoI would bear any fruit, the outspoken social commentator and economist said he has faith in retired Justice Cecil Kennard’s delivering. He also believes that the LCG is serious about the issue, because of its move to set up a CoI.The public hearings will commence on September 24, and are expected to conclude on October 31. The necessary actions will be taken by the Commission after conclusions are drawn from the Inquiry.The CoI comes two months ahead of Local Government Elections wherein a new executive body would be elected to oversee the activities at the Council.Over the years, City Hall has complained about lack of funds, which is a mere contradiction to its excessive spending. Concerns were raised over this issue, and it was noted that while the building is in need of repairs, millions of dollars have been squandered excessively.Town Clerk Royston King has been sent on leave pending the outcome of this CoI.last_img read more

  • Attorney arrested in action-packed day

    first_imgCarpenter’s murder PI… as poisoned teenager appears in courtThe teenager who is the key witness against murder accused Marcus Bisram in the Faiyaz Narinedatt murder trial and who was poisoned turned up at the Springlands Magistrate’s Court on Wednesday, but before he could take the stand,Marcus Bisramhe had to leave for medical reasons.As the Preliminary Inquiry (PI) was about to commence, an attorney was also arrested by the Police for trying to interfere with the course of justice in what could be described as a day of high drama.Attorney-at-Law Chandra Sohan was taken into custody after State Prosecutor Stacy Goodings accused him of obstructing the course of justice.Attorney Sohan, who is not on record as representing the five accused, told the court that two witnesses who had previously testified did indicate to the court that they did not wish to rely on the further statements which they had given to the Police, but on the first set.Goodings argued that Sohan was not a part of the trial and hence his utterances should not be entertained. However, defence Attorney Sanjeev Datadin reminded the court that all State witnesses have a right to additional legal advice and allAttorney-at-Law Chandra SohanSohan was doing was acting in the interest of the two witnesses.The two witnesses were initially picked up as suspects along with the five defendants and detained for four days. Sohan is alleging that after four days in custody, they were given statements to sign and were ordered to sign them if they wanted to be released.In the initial statements, those witnesses claimed that they knew nothing of the murder. The two in question are now witnesses for the State.Following the intervention by Sohan, he was arrested and taken into custody. The prosecution is contending that he was trying to persuade one or more witnesses to not tell the truth. The prosecution is pushing to have him charged. Meanwhile, Attorney-at-law Datadin told the court that he had reviewed a video, which was submitted by one of the persecution’s witnesses and challenged it in court on the grounds of its admissibility. The court is to also look at the video as the PI continues.The five men charged: Radesh Motie, 39; Diadatt Datt, 18; Harri Paul Parsram, 49; Orlando Dickie and Niran Yacoob 37, are before the court for the November 1, 2016 killing of Faiyaz Narinedatt, a carpenter of Number 70 Village, Corentyne.The State is contending that Narinedatt was killed and his body was subsequently placed along the Corentyne Highway at Number 70 Village and run over by a car to make it appear as if he was the victim of a hit-and-run accident.Bisram has since been arrested by law enforcement officials in New York and is being detained pending a hearing in a New York court.While Bisram’s relatives filled the courtroom, outside family members of the dead carpenter held a peaceful picket calling for justice.On Wednesday afternoon, habeas corpus proceedings were filed in the High Court in Georgetown for Sohan, who is a former magistrate released on his own recognisance. Following the filing of those proceedings by Attorney Sase Gunraj, the court ordered that the Police produce him at 09:30h today. However, the Police have since released him on his own recognisance.last_img read more

  • Bill requires calorie counts at many chain restaurants

    first_imgSACRAMENTO – Chain restaurants would be required to tell consumers how many calories are in each meal before they place their order under a bill proposed Tuesday by a state senator. The restaurants should have to post the calorie counts on their menus or a menu board, said state Sen. Carole Migden, D-San Francisco. She said that would help diners make healthier food choices. “We’re spending nearly half of our food dollars outside our homes while obesity rates have risen 100 percent over the last 10 years,” Migden said in a statement. That leads to higher diabetes rates and health care costs, she said, among other problems. The requirement would be limited to chains that have at least five restaurants in California or 10 restaurants nationwide. California Restaurant Association President Jot Condie said the industry is already providing the information voluntarily to consumers who want it. “Evidently, no good deed goes unpunished,” Condie said in a statement. “Putting these concepts into law will only open the door for liability and lawsuits, and will only benefit those in the legal profession.” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
