In just a month and a half Mou accumulates problems

2. 3 José Mourinho has been a Tottenham coach for a month and a half and is already in trouble. Yesterday they played a game of FA Cup before him Middlesbrough from Jonathan Woodgate and things did not go well. They tied one with a club that militates in a lower category and they will be forced to play a replay match, something that the technician will not like at all, that if he has complained about something over the years, it is tight calendar that English teams have, as well as the few rest days they have. Six wins, two draws and four losses is the coach’s balance since he signed for Tottenham. He has just arrived, but he is expected to stop adding obstacles, especially now that the round of 16 is coming Champions League, where a priori have an affordable rival, the RB Leipzig. Kane will miss the first leg of said crossing.All this with the underlying problem of Christian Eriksen, who seems definitely determined not to renew his contract to leave free in summer, although some club is trying to convince you to change your air immediately. Losing one of the stars of the team is another blow to Mourinho. Premier League* Data updated as of January 6, 2020 Tottenham has not been eliminated but there are those who take in London the result as a defeat, since it was taken for granted that they would go round without problems despite the decline in Harry kane. And is that the injury of the striker is another problem that has come to the Portuguese on the slope of January. It seems that it will take longer than expected to return and English is key to trying to take the flight back in the Premier League, in which they are already sixth with 30 points, to one in Europe. That is why having to play more games than expected, not starting with a comfortable balance, the loss of Kane, the pressure of the eighth Champions and the more than possible Eriksen march, are many more problems than any would like coach after a month and a half on the bench. 9 read more

UNMIL Staff Testifies in Tears

first_imgBonfrer Adidee, a Ugandan UNMIL staff on May 27, took the witness stand to testify for prosecution in the murder case of his fiancée, Antoinette Nettie Peters. Adidee’s testimony comes against his private security guard, Jefferson Dahn, he had hired before the murder of Nettie. Dahn is accused of allegedly murdering Nettie.The UNMIL civilian staff was seen crying with tears rolling down his cheeks as he testified at Criminal Court ‘A’ at the Temple of Justice, where the murder case is on trial.Defendant Dahn, who is alleged to have killed Nettie, said it was Adidee, who did the killing and promised to give him US$600, a laptop and two phones for him to cover-up by throwing her dead body away at night.Adidee stated that in nearly five months between Nettie’s death and his security guard’s arrest, he had repeatedly insisted that he didn’t do it.He added: “I have cooperated with the Liberia National Police (LNP) during their investigation and proved my innocence.”Adidee testified after he was summoned by the Court to do so, following prosecution’s request to the court to order him to testify.He testified that the last time he spoke with his girlfriend was an hour prior to her homicide, when he called to cancel his lunch due to one of his colleagues’ health issue.  “She told me that everything was okay during that conversation,” Adidee said in open court.According to him, he had left defendant Dahn and Nettie in the compound by 7 a.m. on the day that she was murdered“I left her alive in the morning and to come back and see her dead is still shocking to me,” Adidee wept as he testified.  Adidee described the relationship between him and his deceased girlfriend as very good. Though tears were constant throughout his emotional testimony, he wonders “I can’t described the feeling the security officers hired to protect me could be the killer of my fiancée.”The witness told the court that Nettie and his security guard had had a heated argument over her broken bowl that Dahn had allegedly earlier taken away from the house. According to him, Nettie had threatened to cut US$50 from his pay for her bowl. “That could not be the reason for him to stab her to death,” he added.He said, it was Nettie who recruited defendant Dahn and three other security guards to protect him and his property.“She brought Dahn and some other persons for me to hire them when I first met her at the Great Wall Hotel, where she was working as a security guard, because I was looking for trusted people to protect me and my compound, when I arrived in the country in 2011,” Adidee alleged.Nettie was stabbed to death in Adidee’s 12 Street, Sinkor home on November 3, 2013.The case has been postponed until June 3, following the Liberia National Bar Association convention in River Gee County. Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Fifth-seeded Trojans to dance with Razorbacks

first_imgThe Trojans received the No.5 seed in the East Region and will face 12th-seeded Arkansas on Friday in Spokane, Wash. The players, some of whom brought along family members, erupted in cheers. Then they got the unique perspective of watching that delayed reaction on the CBS telecast seconds later. “It was unbelievable,” Young said. “I’ve never been in a situation like that, where we see ourselves on the screen and everybody was yelling, then seeing the No. 5 pop up. That was great.” It will be USC’s first trip to the NCAA Tournament since the 2001-02 season, before any current player was on the team. “We’ll get them back to Earth tomorrow, and they can take pats on the back today,” Tim Floyd said. It was a first date of sorts, a date with the NCAA Tournament. Stewart, Nick Young and Gabe Pruitt had been pining for this opportunity for years. Their backs were arched and heads tilted to catch a better view of the scoreboard screen from the arena’s plush new seats. They ached to find out who would be their dance partner, and where they would be going. But the selection show teased them for more than 30 minutes, going through the entire West region before USC’s pairing was announced. USC players sat in the Galen Center stands, two television cameras ready to capture their reactions, and waited. And waited. “My palms were sweaty,” said senior guard Lodrick Stewart. center_img Floyd took over a team coming off a last-place finish in the Pacific-10 Conference and has it in the NCAA Tournament twoyears later. , the Trojans were picked by the media to finish sixth in the conference. “It’s absolutely ahead of schedule,” USC athletic director Mike Garrett said. “If you told me, with the team we had coming back and losing Ryan Francis, that we would make the NCAA Tournament, I would have said that was a `Ripley’s Believe It or Not.”‘ Francis, the starting point guard last season, was killed in a shooting in Louisiana during the offseason. The fifth seed is higher than expected. The Trojans had an impressive resume, with seven victories over Top-25 teams, but had bad losses to South Carolina and Arizona State, as well as a No. 40 RPI. USC’s RPI improved last week thanks to USC’s run to the Pac-10 tournament final, but the Trojans (23-11) had an embarrassing blowout loss to Oregon in the title game. “We’re certainly happy with our seed,” Floyd said. “We think we were treated fairly.” USC won its last meeting with Arkansas, in 1986. The Trojans also beat the Razorbacks in 1967, their only other meeting. Arkansas (21-13) tied for eighth in the Southeastern Conference but advanced to the final of the conference tournament before losing to Florida. If USC can get by the Razorbacks, it could set up a second-round game against No. 15 Texas and national player of the year candidate Kevin Durant. “Obviously, he’s a top NBA prospect,” Pruitt said of Durant. “Hopefully we can take care of business against Arkansas and see those guys in the second round.” Entering the season matthew.kredell@dailynews.com (818) 713-3607 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

RSA SHUTTLE BUS MAKES A STOP AT ST.EUNAN’S

first_imgThe RSA shuttle bus at St Eunans.The senior students of Saint Eunan’s College participated in a class with a difference. The school’s Student Council arranged for the Road Safety Authority Shuttle bus to come between last Monday 17th and Wednesday 18th of November.It was booked months in advance by the Student Council who felt it was important to educate students more about road safety. By Evan Mc Croary, Kieron Clarke. Photos by Nathanael GiddeyStudents from Transition, Fifth and Sixth year all had the opportunity to test their hazard perception skills on the motorbike simulator, practice their driving skills on the driving simulator, test their break reaction time, do a mock driving theory exam, and enjoy a fully interactive road safety educational experience.The RSA shuttle bus’ main aim is to provide the general and targeted audiences with the chance to interact with various road safety campaigns and to spread the message about the importance of road safety. The shuttle includes a presentation area, with lectern, projector, screen and seating to hold twenty five people.Students also had the option to experience the roll over simulator which replicates the motion of a car crash by rotating 360 degrees slowly in a car suspended above the ground. The overall reaction was extremely positive as the students of the college enjoyed this practical learning opportunity.The Student Council found it very worthwhile and would highly recommend booking it again. They received great feedback from students who were involved.It was described as ‘a memorable experience’ that ‘really makes you think about the dangers on the roads and the importance of road safety.’RSA SHUTTLE BUS MAKES A STOP AT ST.EUNAN’S was last modified: November 20th, 2015 by Mark ForkerShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more

GAA PICTURE SPECIAL: NAOMH CONAILL LIFT DIVISION ONE CROWN

first_imgNaomh Conaill ended their season on a high by overcoming neighbours Ardara to win the Division One final at O’Donnell Park, Letterkenny.Ardara were in search of their second league title in three years but the Glenties men proved too strong in the end.At half-time it looked like Ardara had the edge as they went in a point ahead. And when Gareth Concarr added a goal eight minutes into the restart it looked like the league was headed back to Aradara.But led by a man-of-the-match performance from half-back Jamie Gallagher, Naomh Conail always somehow found the edge to win with four points to spare on a final scoreline of 0-14 to 1-7.The win will be some consolation for going out in the first round of this year’s championship.Ardara manager Patrick’Larry’ Gallagher might wonder exactly what turned the tide against him. But Naomh Conaill managers Stephen McKelvey and Martin Doherty’s can thank their big hitters including Dermot Molloy (0-4), Darragh Gallagher (0-5) and Leo McLoone (0-3) for getting them over the line.The Glenties men cruised in the final minutes but it could have been all so different if Ardara could have continued to keep pace with the game.Photos by Jack McKelvey.GAA PICTURE SPECIAL: NAOMH CONAILL LIFT DIVISION ONE CROWN was last modified: November 13th, 2011 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:ArdaraNaomh Conailllast_img read more

COUNCILLOR DEMANDS POLITICIANS WRITE TO 17,146 DONEGAL PENSIONERS ‘BETRAYED BY PHONE CUT’

first_imgA Donegal county councillor has demanded Deputy Joe McHugh, Dinny McGinley and Senator Jimmy Harte write to 17,146 elderly people explaining why their phone allowances have been cut.Sinn Fein councillor Mick Quinn accused the Government politicians of supporting the isolation of Donegal’s older population.And he added that Fine Gael and Labour have “betrayed the elderly people of their own county.” Quinn was commenting after the Dept of Social Protection had responded to a Parliamentary Question from Sinn Fein T.D. Pearse Doherty, confirming that 17,146 people would lose their telephone allowance in Donegal.Quinn said: “ McHugh, McGinley and Harte have supported the recent Budget which has withdrawn the telephone rental allowance from parents and grandparents across the county.“These men live in a world of Skype, E-Mail and Text and have obviously forgotten how important it is for people from an earlier generation to be able to ring someone from an ordinary phone. It is also vital that our parents and grandparents have the security of being able to press a button in times of crisis.”Quinn continued “Neither Joe, Dinny nor Jimmy experienced any cuts in their massive salaries and expenses in the budget, yet they have the arrogance to defend a budget that targets the most vulnerable in our society. “Have they no shame? Have they no honesty? Have they no integrity? Or is it a case of “ I’m alright Jack.”And he concluded “I believe that Joe, Dinny and Jimmy should write to the elderly of our county, or, their Carers, explaining why it is more important that that they suffer cuts rather than the great and the good of the political elite.” COUNCILLOR DEMANDS POLITICIANS WRITE TO 17,146 DONEGAL PENSIONERS ‘BETRAYED BY PHONE CUT’ was last modified: November 13th, 2013 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Cllr Mick QuinnDinny McGinleyjimmy harteJoe McHughphone allowancelast_img read more
