Chelsea ban has been a gift to England – now kids need a chance with Pep & Co

first_imgThe block on young British talent is being cleared and the best of the lads won’t have to wait into their 20s to exist beyond the Carabao Cup and the bench.Manchester United have twice proved they could win trophies with kids.And while I doubt this will happen again with any club, my choice would be to give younger players — Declan Rice is ours — a decent chance to thrive.Pep Guardiola says Phil Foden is the ONLY Man City player he would never sell… even for €500m PEP GUARDIOLA says he won’t take the risk of giving extended chances to his promising kids.A few hours later Manchester City lost surprisingly to Wolves, another club, like mine, which is cautious about regularly exposing post-academy youngsters to the fires of the Premier League.3 Mason Mount, Fikayo Tomori and Tammy Abraham are all impressing at ChelseaCredit: Getty – Contributor3 Pep Guardiola is a big fan of Phil Foden – but hasn’t played him very oftenCredit: Getty – ContributorGuardiola has taken an overly-dogmatic stance, although it is hard to argue with two consecutive championships from a truly marvellous team.Still, fans love home-made starlets. You had only to watch Sean and Matty, the Longstaff brothers of Newcastle, do so much towards beating Manchester United on Sunday to appreciate what that meant to the Toon.But the match provided a warning, too.At some point United fielded six former academy lads and the lack of assurance under pressure undermined whatever boss Ole Gunnar Solksjaer’s tactics were.Guardiola is being questioned repeatedly about why Phil Foden is so rarely among his starting team. He says the 19-year-old would be taking the place of an experienced player, almost certainly of high international calibre, so why take the chance? Does he consistently leave out one of the Silvas, Ilkay Gundogan or Rodrigo?City can afford any available player. So, aware of limited first team chances, 17-year-old Jadon Sancho decided to leave for Borussia Dortmund where he’s had plenty.3 Jadon Sancho is tearing up the BundesligaCredit: Getty – ContributorA year later Sancho was playing for England and even now Foden isn’t.Callum Hudson-Odoi, of Chelsea and of similar age, nearly joined Bayern Munich, only for Chelsea to make first team offers and add a nought to his salary.That paid off, too, with selection for England.Whether their current transfer ban has activated manager Frank Lampard’s revolutionary thoughts at Chelsea I can only guess.But he has placed his faith in a bunch of boys and now we shall have to wait and see if Roman Abramovich will ever open his wallet so generously again. Unlocking a treasure trove of talent, Chelsea are playing in an exhilarating way, as if Eden Hazard was a generation away rather than just a few months.Southgate has responded by picking Hudson-Odoi, Fikayo Tomori, Tammy Abraham and Mason Mount.What a gift to England from a club with a history of renting out dozens of its best youngsters.You can hardly blame Guardiola for looking far beyond Foden. Sancho is a warning that things are changing, though.Most Read Football newsTHROUGH ITRobbie Keane reveals Claudine’s father was ’50-50′ in coronavirus battleTOP SELLERGavin Whelan has gone from League of Ireland to David Beckham’s InstagramExclusiveRIYAD RAIDMan City’s Riyad Mahrez has three luxury watches stolen in £500,000 raidPicturedAN EYEFULMeet Playboy model and football agent Anamaria Prodan bidding to buy her own clubI SAW ROORodallega saw Rooney ‘drinking like madman’ & Gerrard ‘on bar dancing shirtless’NEXT STEPJonny Hayes set to move to English Championship having been let go by CelticREF RELEASEDChampions League ref Vincic released by cops after arrest in prostitution raidKEANE DEALEx Man United youth ace David Jones says Roy Keane negotiated a contract for himlast_img read more

Cooke seeks compensation from INSPORTS

first_imgThe Institute of Sports (INSPORTS) is being challenged by one of its creditors, Edward Cooke, whose lawyer has filed on his behalf for compensation from the government agency for monies owed for his services.Attorney Davion L. Vassell served the notice yesterday on the agency largely responsible for grassroots sporting development. It seeks payment for services allegedly rendered between July and October 2, 2014, which amounted to $619,000 and was accompanied by six invoices.The letter was addressed to INSPORTS to the attention of its chairman, Don Anderson, “re payment of funds to Edward Cooke”, with administrative director Ian Andrews and Cooke also cited.”I act for Edward Cooke in the captioned matter,” it said. “I am instructed that Mr Cooke did work on several occasions for the Institute and to date has not been compensated for services rendered.”I am further instructed that despite several demands, the Institute has failed and/or refused to honour its obligation to Mr Cooke.”Further, it said: “We demand that this sum be paid in two weeks of the date of this letter (January 5, 2015), failing which we will explore other avenues available to Mr Cooke without further notice to you if the debt is not paid.”UNAWARE OF DEVELOPMENTWhen contacted, Anderson said he was oblivious to the development.”I am not aware of it. I am sitting in my office working now and I will continue for the rest of the day to work, no intention to investigate this,” he noted.”If it comes to me, fine, but right now, I have no idea of it. If it comes to me, I will consult my lawyer, but I know nothing about it, so I cannot answer any question,” he further stated.Further calls were made to INSPORTS, where a source, who requested anonymity, explained that the situation stems from a policy change in September 2015 by the new board of directors, which relieved Andrews of the authority to sign cheques. The source said that has resulted in a backlog of payments to its creditors.Andrews was also barred from his office and sent on leave at the time.However, the latter actions were reversed after union intervention, with the exception of Andrews’ signing power.ALLEGED BREACHThis authorisation of cheques is now facilitated with signatures by two board members, an action the source alleges constitutes a breach of government financial regulations on the grounds that the board functions in an advisory capacity and is only responsible for setting policies, as opposed to an executive capacity, which would make it responsible for the day-to-day running of the agency’s operations.In the meantime, Cooke’s attorney expressed hope in the letter that the matter against the government agency would be resolved soon.”We look forward to a prompt and positive response in light of the above,” said Vassell.last_img read more

Wolmer’s ready to defend corporate area crown

first_imgWolmer’s Girls have been corporate area queens for the past eight years but come March 15-19 at the ISSA Boys and Girls Athletics Championships, the Michael Carr-coached team will be under severe pressure to continue their streak.The girls from Heroes Circle have consistently finished ahead of their corporate area rivals at the marquee event. However, the likes of Convent of Mercy (Alpha), Camperdown and Excelsior are eager to knock them off their perch this year.Coach Carr is wary of the fact that his team will be under tremendous pressure but is bracing for the challenge.”To make it nine in a row, it is going to be very challenging as the team does not really have any flag bearer, so to speak, like we did in the past when we had a Shauna Helps and Jonielle Smith, who were real motivators,” said Carr.Unlike former years, his girls have not been dominant at development meets but Carr is not perturbed.”I used these meets to see what we need to improve on going forward, and I am pleased with the progress, as these meets are very beneficial to the athletes,” he said.Asked about his points projections for Champs, his reply was, “I am not a person who thinks about points as, for me, performance is the key, and once they perform the points will come, and I do not believe in predictions.”Although not having a big squad, Carr singled out one athlete who he expects a lot from.”I am very pleased with the performances of our jumpers, especially Danielle Spence, who has been doing well in the triple jump so far.”Asked which teams he sees has threats to dethrone Wolmer’s as Corporate champions, he was philosophical in his reply.”A number of teams are doing well. Camperdown has done very well in recruiting, while Excelsior and Alpha have been doing well, so far, especially Excelsior, who has some great coaches. But, on the day, every team will start at zero points, and only two competitors can compete in an event and, despite all these teams being major threats, I am confident that my girls can rise to the occasion,” said Carr.Carr also stated that not having a playfield for the first four months of training affected his preparation.last_img read more

Magnolia frustrates GlobalPort to halt two-game skid

We need to have that playoff mentality starting with today’s game. I’m very happy because they adjusted in second half,” he said. “I told them this is a grinding game, so we need to dig deep especially in the game’s physicality.”Kelly Nabong got 21 points and 12 rebounds to lead GlobalPort, which dropped to 4-5, now tied with Phoenix and Blackwater for the seventh spot.ADVERTISEMENT “That was the story of the game: our defense,” said coach Chito Victolero. “Every time we limit our opponents to under 88 points, we have a big chance of winning the game.”Magnolia got back to its winning ways and rose to 7-3, putting pressure on fellow league leaders San Miguel and Alaska which will battle each other on Saturday in Batangas.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSTim Cone, Ginebra set their sights on elusive All-Filipino crownSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSAfter winning title, time for LA Tenorio to give back to Batangas folkDela Rosa once again notched a career-high 18 points, nine coming in the payoff period, to go with four rebounds as he reached a new career-best in scoring for the third straight game.Justin Melton contributed 14 markers, six boards, and five assists, while Ian Sangalang also got 14 points, six rebounds, and two dimes in the victory.

Aubameyang takes centre stage as injury sidelines Salah

first_imgGuinean Amadou Diawara scored his first Italian Serie A goal to earn Napoli a last-gasp 2-1 win over Chievo and keep them in hot pursuit of leaders Juventus.ENGLANDPIERRE-EMERICK AUBAMEYANG/MOHAMED ELNENY (Arsenal)The Gabon striker slotted home Danny Welbeck’s pass from close range to keep his scoring streak since becoming Arsenal’s club record signing in January.However, there was an end to forget for Egypt midfielder Elneny as he was shown a straight red card for pushing his hand into Cedric Soares’s face as tempers flared in the closing stages.STEVE MOUNIE (Huddersfield)Mounie pounced on a terrible backpass from Brighton’s Shane Duffy to salvage a priceless point for Huddersfield, who drew 1-1 in their quest to remain in the Premier League.The Benin striker now has nine goals in all competitions this season.MAME BIRAM DIOUF (Stoke)Diouf grabbed his sixth goal of the season, but admitted he couldn’t remember much about it after Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper Hugo Lloris’s clearance smashed off the Senegalese’s face.The forward kept his balance just long enough to slot the ball into the unguarded goal.However, Diouf’s bravery didn’t ultimately help Stoke’s battle against the drop as two goals from Christian Eriksen condemned them to a 2-1 defeat, leaving them still rooted in the relegation zone.SPAINNABIL EL ZHAR (Leganes)Morocco-born former Liverpool winger El Zhar cut inside and fired into the bottom corner from the edge of the box despite slipping as he shot to give runaway La Liga leaders Barcelona some anxious moments before Lionel Messi completed his hat-trick to ensure a 3-1 victory at Camp Nou.Barcelona are unbeaten in 38 league matches, equalling the record set by Real Sociedad 38 years ago.ITALYCHEICK DIABATE (Benevento)Mali forward Diabate scored a brace to twice drag Benevento back into the game against champions Juventus, but the rock-bottom side lost 4-2 and fell to their 26th defeat in 31 games.Diabate tapped in a rebound after 24 minutes to cancel out Paulo Dybala’s opener and scored his second six minutes after the break with a header off a corner.The towering forward has scored five goals since arriving in Naples last February. But the 29-year-old — who helped save French club Metz from relegation in 2016 — looks to have arrived too late for Benevento.AMADOU DIAWARA (Napoli)Guinean midfielder Diawara scored his debut Serie A goal and a last-ditch winner that kept Napoli’s title ambitions burning with a 2-1 win over Chievo.The ball dropped for the 20-year-old midfielder to curl in a right-foot finish from a corner at the 93rd minute in Naples. “I’m very happy, it’s my first Serie A goal and it couldn’t have come at a better time,” said Diawara.“I dedicate this goal to my mother, who died a year before I came to Italy, so she didn’t get to see me play in Serie A.” Napoli remain within four points of leaders Juventus.GERMANYISHAK BELFODIL (Werder Bremen)The Algeria striker, on loan this season from Standard Liege, netted Werder Bremen’s consolation goal in a 2-1 defeat at Hanover 96.Belfodil netted his third goal in as many league games when his header looped over the Hanover goalkeeper and into the net via the crossbar.FRANCELEBO MOTHIBA (Lille)The South African forward, 22, put Lille in front at Bordeaux with his third goal in eight games since being recalled from a loan at second-tier Valenciennes in January.However, he could not stop his side from sliding to a 2-1 defeat that leaves the 2011 champions still in the relegation zone, without a win in nine games.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000The absence of injured Liverpool and Egypt star Mohamed Salah allowed Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to steal the limelight among the African stars in Europe at the weekend © AFP/File / Glyn KIRKPARIS, France, Apr 9 – The absence of injured Liverpool and Egypt star Mohamed Salah allowed Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to steal the limelight among the African stars in Europe at the weekend.He scored his sixth goal in eighth appearances for Arsenal since moving from Borussia Dortmund as they shaded Southampton 3-2 in a fiery English Premier League clash.last_img read more

Fulham relegated from the Premier League

first_img0Shares0000Fulham relegated from the Premier LeagueLONDON, United Kingdom, Apr 3 – Fulham were relegated from the Premier League as a 4-1 thrashing against Watford on Tuesday brought a fitting end to their turbulent one-season stay in the top flight.Scott Parker’s side had to avoid defeat at Vicarage Road to stave off their inevitable demise for a few more days. But second-bottom Fulham, 16 points from safety with five games remaining, slumped to a ninth successive loss that confirmed their relegation to the Championship.Abdoulaye Doucoure put Watford ahead in the 23rd minute before Ryan Babel’s equaliser 10 minutes later briefly gave Fulham hope.Fulham’s fate was sealed in the second half when Will Hughes, Troy Deeney and Kiko Femenia all netted for Javi Gracia’s men in the space of 12 minutes.On Saturday, bottom-of-the-table Huddersfield became only the second team after Derby in 2008 to be relegated from the Premier League in March with six games left.Three days later, Fulham followed Huddersfield through the trapdoor in what ranks as the third earliest relegation in the Premier League era.Despite a close-season investment of over £100 million ($131 million) on new signings — the most ever spent by a promoted Premier League club — the Cottagers went down with a whimper.Fulham have lost all five matches under caretaker manager Parker, but they were already destined for relegation long before he took over as the club’s third boss this term.Slavisa Jokanovic was sacked in November as Fulham owner Shahid Khan tried to lift his team out of their wretched run.But his replacement Claudio Ranieri fared even worse and was axed in February after Fulham fans turned on the Italian following seven defeats in eight league games.It was fitting that Fulham’s futile stay in the Premier League ended on the road as they have been historically bad in away fixtures.They have lost their last seven consecutive away matches and have not won away in the league for almost a year, with their tally of just two points away from home this season the lowest in the top four tiers of English football.Fulham have also conceded at least twice in 13 consecutive league games, both home and away.In contrast, Watford’s victory was the ideal preparation for Sunday’s FA Cup semi-final against Wolves at Wembley.Watford’s 13th league win this season is their most in a top-flight campaign since 1986-87.The Hornets have also eclipsed their Premier League club record of 45 points, set in 2015-16.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Belfast couple say heartfelt thanks to locals who helped after car crash

first_imgBelfast woman Sarah Orr would like to reach out and thank everyone who stopped to assist her and her husband Phil after their car and caravan crashed beside Errigal on the Dunlewey side of Glenveagh National Park on Saturday evening.The couple was towing the van with their car when strong winds and a bumpy road caused the caravan to start snaking. It became difficult to regain control and the car began to weave along the road.Speaking to Donegal Daily Sarah explained; “We go on a holiday to Donegal every year, Phil has been going to Carrickfinn since he was a wee boy so we have a lot of friends there. “We were on our way back from Carrickfinn, the road was worse than it was last year. We lost control of the van and the car began to snake and swerve. To avoid hitting a car coming towards us we swerved into a ditch and rolled over.”Sarah says the experience terrified her, and that they are very lucky to escape the wreckage alive.“We’re really lucky no one else was involved and that we walked out unhurt. The girl who saw it happen thought no one was coming out.“There are so many people I’d love to thank. A girl came over with a blanket, people stopped and hugged us and held my hand. Everyone just gathered around and helped us. “I was in shock and I don’t remember faces and names, I remember some faces, and I’ve found others on Facebook. Phil’s reaction to shock is to get things sorted but I was the opposite. Everyone was so good to me, someone gave me their coat and through Facebook I arranged to get it back to her.“I want people to know how thankful I am. There was a psychiatric nurse there who helped calm me down. From what I remember and from what Phil told me, an off duty fireman, an off duty Garda, and a GP were also on the scene! We are also so thankful for all the help and support the emergency services provided. They were really understanding and made sure we were okay.”“It was an act of God, there’s no way we should have come out of that. Apart from some aches and a few bruises we were relatively untouched. I think the marsh took the impact of the crash from the car.“Roarty’s were also really good and helped us get the van and car back to Dunlewey.“There was a woman, I think her name was Martha, who traveled to Dunlewey to make calls for me as there was no signal. I gave her my phone and told her which people to ring and she rang my mother-in-law and my husband’s cousin in Carrickfinn and she came back with my phone. That was awesome, she just helped no questions asked. “It was just a real showing of basic human kindness and that’s how incredible people can be.“There were loads of people who stopped, I wasn’t fully aware but I had about five or six women checking if I was okay, and men were helping Phil. It’s still hazy. Everyone came to the rescue so fast.“We were amazed, it gives you faith in humanity with all the bad stuff happening around the world,” she said.Belfast couple say heartfelt thanks to locals who helped after car crash was last modified: September 8th, 2017 by Elaine McCalligShare 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:Belfastcrashdonegalgood newsHelplast_img read more
