Leicester City fairytale complete!

first_imgLONDON (AP):Leicester City completed one of the greatest-ever sporting achievements yesterday when the 5,000-1 underdogs won the English Premier League for the first time.Leicester players were crowded around a television inside top-scorer Jamie Vardy’s house as they were handed the title by closest challengers Tottenham being held to a 2-2 draw by deposed champions Chelsea.With an insurmountable seven-point lead over Tottenham with two games remaining, Leicester are champions of England for the first time in their 132-year history.”Championes! Championes! Ole! Ole! Ole!” the jubilant Leicester players sang as they jumped up and down with their arms on each other’s shoulders inside Vardy’s house.”Nobody believed we could do it, but here we are Premier League champions and deservedly so,” Leicester captain Wes Morgan said. “I’ve never known a spirit like the one between these boys, we’re like brothers.”FIRST JAMAICA TITLE-HOLDERMorgan is the first Jamaican international to win the English Premier League.Just two years ago, Vardy and many of his teammates were playing in the second tier and then came close to instantly dropping out of the Premier League. They started this season as among the favourites to be relegated again. But last night, fans – who never dreamed their modest club in a city with a population of 330,000 would conquer wealthier rivals – descended on Leicester’s King Power Stadium to party into the night.”People saw it last season when everyone expected us to be relegated, but we fought back to prove people wrong,” Morgan said. “This season’s been a continuation of that. We’ve built on the momentum, but I don’t think anyone believed it would come to this.”Leicester, who will collect the trophy on Saturday when they host Everton at home, had not even finished higher than second since 1929.English soccer have not had a first-time champion of the top flight since Nottingham Forest in 1978. And for the last 20 years, the Premier League trophy has never left London or Manchester, with Arsenal, Chelsea, United and City sharing the trophy among them.Unlike that title-winning quartet or 1995 champion Blackburn, Leicester have achieved their success without lavish spending on their squad.Chelsea’s draw also ensured Leicester manager Claudio Ranieri became a league title winner for the first time in his career, 12 years after the 64-year-old Italian was fired by the Blues.”Let’s do it for Ranieri,” read one Chelsea fan’s banner during yesterday’s game at Stamford Bridge, where the trophy was presented to Chelsea last May.”It’s the greatest achievement in the history of English football and it was led by an Italian,” Matteo Renzi, the Italian prime minister, tweeted.Leicester missed a chance to seal the title on Sunday when they were held to a draw by Manchester United, but Chelsea ensured that the party wasn’t delayed any longer.Tottenham had to win at Chelsea to keep their bid for a first title since 1961 alive and led 2-0 thanks to goals from striker Harry Kane and Son Heung-min, before Chelsea staged a second-half fight back to draw in a fiery London derby, where tempers frayed and tackles flew in from everywhere.”What a game,” Leicester defender Robert Huth tweeted. “Makes me look like an angel! CHAMPIONS!!!”Centre half Gary Cahill pulled a goal back for Chelsea early in the second half and with Tottenham clinging on, the equalising goal was scored by Eden Hazard.Ranieri called Chelsea manager Guus Hiddink to thank him for Chelsea’s part in delivering the title to Leicester, which is owned by Thai retail giant King Power.”(Ranieri said) five times ‘Thanks’, because of the emotion,” Hiddink said. “I didn’t see any tears because it was not a Facetime conversation, but his voice was trembling a bit.”One bookmaker, Sky Bet, said it paid out £4.6 million (US$6.8 million) to punters who backed Leicester to win the title, with 128 putting money on the team at 5,000-1.No sports team has defied such odds to triumph, and Leicester’s improbablesuccess has provided a feel-good story for a country divided as they prepare to vote on whether to remain in the European Union.”Many congratulations to Leicester,” British Prime Minister David Cameron tweeted. “An extraordinary, thoroughly deserved, Premier League title.”last_img read more

Government should swallow their pride

first_imgDear Editor,My attention was drawn to an extensive social media post by Minister of Business Dominic Gaskin in which he posited “The Constitution is silent on the impact of a no-confidence vote on the National Assembly. I would therefore expect the National Assembly to continue to function as normal, and in keeping with the will of the electorate, until such time as it is dissolved.”I will begin by agreeing with Gaskin that he is correct in that the Constitution is silent on the matter, but since Article 106 (6) states “The Cabinet including the President shall resign if the Government is defeated by the vote of a majority of all the elected members of the National Assembly on a vote of confidence” and Article 106 (7) continues “Notwithstanding its defeat, the Government shall remain in office and shall hold an election within three months, or such longer period as the National Assembly shall by resolution supported by not less than two-thirds of the votes of all the elected members of the National Assembly determine, and shall resign after the President takes the oath of office following the election”, then one can take the two articles conjunctively to arrive at a commonsense position that it cannot be business as usual as contended by Gaskin. Instead, it must be a period of great ethical behavior; no granting of contracts; no dispersal of state assets; no actions that can be deemed favorable to one’s self, friends, cronies or business associates. While a caretaker Government provision is not explicitly stated, we cannot have a vacuum, hence it is most certainly implied.Editor, there was no rabid call for resignation of the Government prior to their announcement of ‘exploration of options’, until then, President Granger and Opposition Bharat Jagdeo had set a respectful tone that becalmed seas that threatened to be stormy. The behavior of Cabinet members since the departure of President Granger has caused many great alarms. The attempts to sidestep the Constitution by way of asking the Speaker to review a decision of the National Assembly; introduction of illogical interpretations of the word ‘majority’; questions of citizenship that are clearly addressed by Article 165 (2) of the Constitution are all acts of people who are desperate to avoid facing the electorate.Editor, until there is a renewed public acceptance by the Government that it has fallen and there exists no constitutional crisis, civil society members will continue to be strident in the calls for the resignation of the Granger Administration. The people of the nation accepted the results of the no-confidence motion, I strongly urge the Government to swallow their pride and follow suit, failing which the medicine will indeed be bitter at the polls.Respectfully,Robin Singhlast_img read more

Neymar on the mark as PSG up and running under Tuchel

first_img0Shares0000Neymar scored his first goal for PSG since a 5-2 win over Strasbourg in February © AFP / GERARD JULIENPARIS, France, Aug 12 – Neymar scored his first goal for Paris Saint-Germain since February as the French champions kicked off the new Ligue 1 season with a 3-0 defeat of Caen on Sunday.The Brazilian star, who scored 19 times in 20 league games before fracturing his foot last season, struck just 10 minutes into his first start for the club in almost six months. Adrien Rabiot netted a second for PSG before half-time and Timothy Weah, the son of 1995 Ballon d’Or winner and Liberia president George Weah, rounded out the victory with his first league goal.Gianluigi Buffon also produced a couple of sharp saves on his home bow in goal for PSG as coach Thomas Tuchel made a winning start at the Parc des Princes.“We played a good match with lots of intensity, especially in the first half. In the second half we managed things a bit more because we’re not yet at 100%,” PSG captain Thiago Silva told Canal+.“Some players arrived late (for pre-season) and are not ready, like myself for example. At the end of the match I had lots of cramps, but well done to all the team for the match we played today. We’re going to make more progress.”German Tuchel, who replaced Unai Emery on a two-year deal, was without a host of first-team regulars as PSG’s trio of World Cup winners — Kylian Mbappe, Presnel Kimpembe and Alphonse Areola — showed off the trophy to fans before kick-off.Edinson Cavani and Marco Verratti were also absent as Tuchel handed starts to youngsters Colin Dagba and Stanley N’Soki in defence, and fellow 19-year-old Antoine Bernede in midfield.After appearing in a 15-minute cameo at the end of last weekend’s 4-0 rout of Monaco in the Champions Trophy in China, Neymar made a long-awaited return to the line-up in Paris.He needed little time to leave his mark as Caen goalkeeper Brice Samba was punished for a sloppy pass, with Christopher Nkunku setting Neymar up for a calm, side-footed finish on his left foot.Buffon, who was expected to retire at the end of last season before electing for a new adventure abroad, became the oldest PSG player in Ligue 1 history at 40 years and six months.The 2006 World Cup winner was called into action for the first time midway through the opening period when Malik Tchokounte’s firm volley forced Buffon to punch to safety.– Buffon bails out Silva –Angel Di Maria, on target twice in the victory over Monaco, laid the ball on a plate for Rabiot to add PSG’s second on 35 minutes.The Argentine winger’s acceleration took him past Alexander Djiku and into the Caen area where he crossed for a charging Rabiot to tap in from close range.Silva was indebted to the quick reflexes of Buffon on the stroke of half-time when an attempt to head clear a cross left his keeper scrambling to turn the ball behind.Stef Peeters had Buffon beaten after the break when his free-kick smacked against the inside of the post, while a combination of Samba and the woodwork then denied Weah on 85 minutes.Nabil Fekir paraded the World Cup trophy to the Lyon fans ahead of their game at home to Amiens © AFP / PHILIPPE DESMAZESBut the US international pounced on another mistake by Samba a minute from time, Weah forcing the ball over the line after catching the Caen keeper in possession.Earlier, Bertrand Traore and Memphis Depay scored for Lyon in a 2-0 victory over Amiens.Burkina Faso forward Traore fired Lyon ahead on 24 minutes when he broke down the right side of the area and sneaked the ball through the legs of Amiens goalkeeper Regis Gurtner.Nabil Fekir, who came on as a substitute in France’s 4-2 win against Croatia in last month’s World Cup final, was not included in the Lyon squad having only returned to training on Monday.Bruno Genesio’s side coped without their captain as Dutch star Depay made the points safe with a terrific 20-yard free-kick on 75 minutes.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Chivas aims for Copa II

first_imgGuadalajara stands two games from a return trip to Copa Libertadores, South America’s club soccer championship, and needs only a tie – and maybe less – tonight against Necaxa at Home Depot Center to reach an InterLiga final. Guadalajara, which reached the Copa Libertadores semifinals last summer, is atop Group B after two rounds of InterLiga play in Texas. Doubleheaders tonight and Wednesday at HDC will determine four finalists, and Sunday’s games at HDC will decide Mexico’s final two entrants in the South American championship. Group A leader Monterrey, which faces Pachuca on Wednesday, is seeking consolation after a controversial loss last month to Toluca in Mexico’s Primera Division Apertura final. -Scott French 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Agua Dulce council president steps down

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORECasino Insider: Here’s a look at San Manuel’s new high limit rooms, Asian restaurant Town Council members Ramona Hall, Mary Johnson, Peg Spry and Don MacAdam did not immediately return calls for comment Thursday, but council member Ze Gonzales said he was surprised by Flath’s decision. “He was doing an excellent job,” he said. “I felt bad that he felt he had to do that.” Flath, whose resignation will be considered at the Town Council meeting Wednesday, is the second of the seven-member panel to step down over the past two months. Council member Richard Dyer, who is moving to Texas, recently resigned. Town Council bylaws require a special election be held within 45 days to fill vacancies. The rural community of about 4,000 between the Santa Clarita and Antelope valleys has been embroiled in a dispute over Agua Dulce Airpark’s expansion permit. Some residents who have complained of noise, extended filming and aerobatics by pilots want the decades-old permit revoked or restricted, fearing an expanded airport would ruin the area. Pilots and the airstrip’s owner, local tycoon Wayne Spears, have asserted their right to operate. AGUA DULCE – Agua Dulce Town Council President Mark Flath will resign, saying Thursday that ongoing infighting made it impossible for him to serve a community fractured by a local airstrip’s expansion plans. Flath, who was elected in August, said the council elected to advise 5th District county Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich on local issues has shown little willingness to mediate the dispute over Agua Dulce Airpark. “I’m resigning because I’m not going to work with people who have shown over and over they refuse to uphold their oath of office, to formulate a consensus,” he said. “If we have a community that’s divided, the leadership of the community needs to get together and heal that community. “The members of the town council are not willing to serve the community to the best interest of the community. They’re not willing to work together. They’re not willing to put the community first. They want their own agendas first.” A modified permit under review by the county Regional Planning Commission allows a total 59 hangars, a 116,000 square-foot tie-down area and a 20-room “airtel” with a restaurant. A final vote is scheduled for Wednesday. Though the Town Council is officially neutral, the issue is often felt during council elections, with candidates judged based on their airpark stances. Flath had sought to mediate the dispute. In January, he invited Spears to a public meeting to address concerns over expansion and proposed forming a joint committee of local pilots and airport opponents to clear the air. But he was rebuffed by the airport owner, who declined to participate, and by partisans on both sides. “This had nothing to do with the airpark,” Flath said. “This had to do with community members learning how to get along. Part of it is an education on both sides.” Gonzales said that episode contributed to Flath’s decision to leave. “Mark felt that the rest of us wouldn’t support him on the committee,” he said. “I just didn’t feel the Town Council should have another forum when we can’t seem to get to the ones we have now.” Flath said disputes erupted even on the smallest parliamentary procedures. He said a council member who was part of a lawsuit against the panel recently took issue that the agenda for an upcoming meeting was posted 71 hours rather than 72 hours as required by the state open meeting law – a move he said was aimed at attacking adversaries. “All they wanted to do is fight,” he said. Council members Dyer and Johnson, a former airpark employee, were part of a lawsuit last year alleging the Town Council violated the Ralph M. Brown Act because it prohibited electronic recording of its meetings. A Los Angeles Superior Court judge ruled the council, which has no legislative powers, must abide by the Brown Act. The lawsuit cost the council $14,000 and led four council members – some of them airpark opponents – to resign. Flath and Gonzales – who had resigned due to the lawsuit – were elected in an August special election to restore the panel. “The people should agree to disagree, but we don’t,” Gonzales said. “This whole airpark thing has swallowed up the community.” Eugene Tong, (661) 257-5253 eugene.tong@dailynews.com 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Frozen in time

first_imgWHITTIER – Prim and proper, Rebecca Bailey sat motionless in a chair – until gangster Al Capone, with a fedora pulled low over his eyes, walked up and brought her to life. In an animated voice, Bailey then told the story of her early years as a Quaker wife living with her husband Jonathan Bailey in a ranch house in Whittier. Of course, Bailey and Capone are long gone. The two characters were actually eighth-graders at Dexter Middle School, where the students created a mock wax museum as the finale event for a research project. “It’s fun to dress up as a character and do a wax museum. Who doesn’t want to do a wax museum?” said Bobbie Froehlich, the 14-year-old student who played the role of Bailey. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREBasketball roundup: Sierra Canyon, Birmingham set to face off in tournament quarterfinalsFriday was a dress rehearsal day. The wax museum will officially open to students and parents next week. The idea was introduced eight years ago by eighth-grade honors teacher Marjorie Lawrence, who wanted to make the students’ final research project challenging but fun. “It’s a way to incorporate eighth-grade curriculum with state standards, the students’ own interests and creativity,” she said. The work started in March, when students choose their topics. They then researched the topic, interviewed an expert on the subject and wrote an 850-word research paper based on their findings. Some students choose characters to write about, like Bailey, Mark Twain and Pancho Villa. Others focus on themes, including the design of the space shuttle and Japanese internment camps, Lawrence said. Once the paper is done, students get costumes and create a small speech to read to visitors to the wax museum. In costume, they stand frozen, until someone walks up and activates them. They then read the prepared speech. Austreberto Cueto, 13, said he dressed up as Al Capone because he wanted to find out what it was like to be a gangster in the 1930s. Daniel Peretz, 14, chose to play Moli re, a French playwright in the 1600s, because Moli re liked to stir up trouble in his day. “He seemed perfect because he was controversial and real out there,” said Peretz, who wore a black wig, velvet smoking jacket and buckled shoes for his role. debbie.pfeiffer@sgvn.com (562) 698-0955, Ext. 3028160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

first_imgDONEGAL airport at Carrickfin will get government grants to keep it going next year – but City of Derry and Sligo are to lose funding, the Government announced tonight.In a press statement, Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport Leo Varadkar said that €5.9m in additional funding would be available for regional airports this year.But he said that “from next year, the Government will only be in a position to support the four regional airports at Donegal, Knock Ireland West, Kerry and Waterford. “The Government will not be able to provide operational or capital funding to Galway or Sligo airports.The €5.9m comes on top of the €13.4m already allocated to regional airports for this year by the last government, the statement added.Mr Varadkar urged Galway and Sligo airports to use the opportunity provided by the additional funding to engage with various parties, including business interests, investors and local authorities, in order to secure their ongoing viability in some form.“All the regional airports must use this period (2011) to prepare realistic business plans for the future, as funding cannot be maintained at current levels,” he said. “The right thing to do is support the most viable airports, where there is also a clear geographical need for their services.”The statement the decision was taken based on “significant improvements in road networks, shorter journey times by road and rail, and the collapse in passengers flying domestically.”DONEGAL AIRPORT SURVIVES CUTS – BUT DERRY & SLIGO TO LOSE OUT was last modified: June 7th, 2011 by gregShare 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:derry city airportDonegal Airportgovernment cutssligo airportlast_img read more
