‘I’ve got no problem with Shaun Johnson’ – Kearney

first_imgKearney has spoken publicly for the first time since Johnson’s spectacular departure from the club and his subsequent signing with the Cronulla Sharks.At the weekend Johnson said Kearney “didn’t like him” and that he was left out of discussions about the Warriors’ playing rosters, as he was not in the team leadership group.”I can honestly say after spending close to 20 test matches with him and at close quarters over the last two years… I’ve got no problem with Shaun,” said Kearney.Kearney refused to reveal what hand he had in Johnson’s departure and said he was not “into” the “he said, she said” conversations which have been going on and simply wanted to move on.Johnson’s abrupt exit was triggered when it was revealed the Warriors had advised him to test his value on the open market for a contract post 2019.Kearney wouldn’t answer directly when asked if he wanted Johnson at the club long-term, but did confirm he spoke to the playmaker when he was on tour with the Kiwis in England early last month.”I made it very clear that we were very committed to Shaun for 2019. He had a contract with the footy club.”However I was going to help him be better at his job, I was committed to making sure that happened, but what’s transpired has transpired.”Warriors chief executive Cameron George had recently taken a crack at Johnson for his inconsistency.”We need consistent performances and therefore we need consistent individuals, and not everyone has been doing that.”While he shot down speculation Johnson was on the outer, saying he was a respected member of the squad, Warriors captain Roger Tuivasa-Sheck said Johnson’s annual training routines meant it hadn’t been much different since the shock departure.Although Johnson had been the face of the Warriors almost since making his NRL debut in 2011, Tuivasa-Sheck said his Kiwis team-mate hadn’t usually been one of the earlier players to join the squad for pre-season.”It’s funny you should mention because he [didn’t] really start till after Christmas, so it’s pretty normal at the moment.”Once that all finished up with the news of Shaun going the boys were quick to move on and ready to dive into what’s next for us.”All that remained now was deciding who would take Johnson’s position in the team next season.Kearney was adamant they would be taking their time and wasn’t ruling out either recruiting a new player, or calling on younger squad members Chanel Harris-Tavita, Hayze Perham and newcomer Adam Keighran to step in alongside Blake Green.”The next recruitment decisions we make, they’re really important ones and we’re not going to be panicked into making any rash decisions.”We’ve got a couple of young guys here that, when you get presented with a challenge what it does is offers others an opportunity. That’s what it’s done.”last_img read more

Barça’s medical services foresee a plague of injuries

first_imgTraditionally, the most conflictive months of injury during the season are usually at the beginning of the season, August and September, coinciding with the return of the players’ vacation period, and the last months of the course, when the workload has built up and forces begin to falter. Curiously here we find “The perfect storm”, according to club sources, since “the two-month break coincides with the final stretch.”This same season, without going any further, in the months of August and September a total of ten injured were accumulated, five per month. Namely: Messi (soleus), Neto (left hand scaphoid and operation), Suárez (soleus), Dembélé (femoral biceps) and Junior (knee ligament), in August, and Umtiti (foot), Alba (femoral biceps), Messi (soleus relapse), Ansu Fati (patellar tendon) and Dembélé (femoral biceps) again, in September. Also, in the club they do not forget that Leo was injured in his first training session of the season.All these antecedents force the medical services to multiply the scenarios before the possibility of an injury plague. In fact, This year up to a total of twelve players have had problems of greater or lesser magnitude in the hamstrings and in the joints: Dembélé and Suárez even undergoing surgery.As of today there are only two players on the roster who have emerged immune to injury. Curiously, we are talking about the two big signings of the summer: Frenkie de Jong and Antoine Griezmann. An internal report from the medical services of FC Barcelona makes clear the enormous concern within the club for the health of its players. And we are not talking precisely about the coronavirus virus but about the high risk of injury in the event that activity is restarted after two months of confinement.In the most optimistic scenario, the possibility of suffering “between five to ten injuries” during the first month of competition is emphasized. There are multiple reasons for making this type of forecast: two-month period of confinement with its inevitable consequences on physical fitness, deficit training due to the protocol set by LaLiga, absence of friendlies to help catch the competition rhythm, insufficient time for recovery of muscle fatigue between matches and matches -se speaks for 72 hours-, high temperatures that will affect the effort and maximum mental demand when playing the decisive final stretch of LaLiga and the Champions in just over two months.Also in the report Special emphasis is placed on prevention work during the rehabilitation phase “in the hamstrings and joints.” Hence, training before the start of the competition must focus on minimizing the risks with “a specific job” in the most risky players or those with a history. Antonio Gómez, the physical trainer of the first team that supervises strength work in the gym, will have a prominent role in this prevention work.Taking into account that the current Quique Setién squad is one of the shortest in LaLiga, with only 19 footballers, With the added handicap of a long-term injured player, Dembélé, among them, although also with the presence of Ansu Fati, we are talking about a limit situation, especially thinking that after the League the Champions League will come.last_img read more

Granger requests 2nd list of nominees from Opposition Leader

first_imgOne day after publicly rejecting the first list of nominees for the Chairmanship of the Guyana Elections Commission (GECOM), President David Granger formally indicated to Opposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo his dissatisfaction with the first batch and requested that a new list of persons be submitted. In his correspondence to the Office of the Opposition Leader on Monday, the Head of State contended that the six nominees were “unacceptable within the meaning of the Constitution”.The President told media operatives during the Annual Media Brunch on Sunday morning that the nominees, in accordance with the Constitution of Guyana, ought to be a judge or possess qualifications which would make them eligible to become one.He contended that the nominees submitted by Jagdeo do not meet those requirements and were, therefore, unacceptable – an assertion that was wholly dismissed by concerned stakeholders.Granger has rejected this list of nominees on the grounds that the individuals lack a legal background even though in 1997, he accepted the nomination to be GECOM Chairman by then Opposition Leader Desmond Hoyte despite lacking the qualifications he is now seeking in a new Chairperson. The nominees submitted by Jagdeo are: Executive Member of the Private Sector Commission (PSC), Ramesh Dookhoo; former PSC Chairman and Army Chief Norman Mc Lean; Chartered Accountant and former Head of the Bar Association, Christopher Ram; writer Rhyaan Shah; Professor James Rose and human rights and conflict resolution consultant Lawrence Latchmansingh.Article 161 of the Constitution of Guyana indeed outlines that the nominees must be a judge or have the qualifications of a judge, but it also states that the nominee can be any person deemed “fit and proper”.The extract reads, “The Chairman of the Elections Commission shall be a person who holds or who has held office as a judge of a court having unlimited jurisdiction in civil and criminal matters in some part of the Commonwealth or a court having jurisdiction in appeals from any such court or who is qualified to be appointed as any such judge, or any other fit and proper person, to be appointed by the President from a list of six persons, not unacceptable to the President, submitted by the Leader of the Opposition after meaningful consultation with the non-governmental political parties represented in the National Assembly.”Previous ChairmenThe majority of the previous Chairmen of GECOM lacked legal qualifications and, therefore, would have all qualified under the “fit and proper” requirement.In fact, of all the persons who were appointed as Chairman of GECOM, only the late Doodnauth Singh, former Attorney General and Senior Counsel, satisfied the category of being a judge or having the requisite qualifications to be one.All the other persons – Rudy Collins, Edward Hopkinson, Joseph Singh and Dr Steve Surujbally – lacked legal qualifications.Meanwhile, former Attorney General Anil Nandlall believes that the President’s announcement is a signal of the People’s National Congress (PNC)-led A Partnership for National Unity/Alliance For Change (APNU/AFC) coalition’s intention to rig the next General and Regional Elections in 2020.“The President is playing a dangerous game… I believe these machinations will continue until the President conjures up an interpretation of the Constitution which permits him to unilaterally appoint a Chairman of GECOM,” he expressed.Former Government Minister, Dr Leslie Ramsammy said the President’s rejection was an attempt to seize power through a coup.Additionally, Guyana Trades Union Congress (GTUC) General Secretary Lincoln Lewis disagreed with President Granger’s assertion, highlighting that the Constitution indeed provides for suitable persons outside the realm of judges or those qualified to be judges to be appointed as GECOM Chairman.The Opposition Leader will be responding to the President’s request today.last_img read more

DD Motoring: The New Skoda Kodiaq and Shannons’ Corner

first_imgOne sure sign that you have arrived is when you go “through the Gap” and they shorten your name. It’s a respect thing if you can understand it or not you have very little option but to go with it. The knew Skoda lost the two letters out of its name, shortening it to “Kodi” when it arrived recently to DMG Motors in Donegal Town.Maybe the AQ was silent to begin with so what was the point in writing it down if you weren’t going to say it. It’s a bit like Mary Matthews restaurant at the top of Ballyshannon Main St. called Shannons’ Corner. Advertisement Both Skoda and Shannons’ Corner have come along way to end up at a successful location even though they started their journey travelling in the complete opposite direction. Skoda started out as an independent carmaker in the Czech Republic only to be taken over by the VW group which ended up making the brand a runaway success, some would even consider it a more successful brand than its parent company.The new Skoda Kodiaq which we were out and about in this week pictured on the Quay in Donegal. Photo Brian McDaidSkoda always were ahead of the competitors in the Czech Republic and just needed that final ingredient of VW’s support to make the brand a success.Shannons’ Corner had Mary Matthews who started off in the catering business working for Jack Grimes in his Bakery and Café in Ballyshannon, Mary ended up as manager of the business baking for everyone in Ballyshannon, Bundoran and Rossnowlagh where Jack Grimes had retail outlets.After working for 17 years for the Grimes group, Mary decided to go out on her own, that was 19 years ago on the 4th of April next week. Mary Matthews opened her own business at the top of the Main St. in Ballyshannon. She will be the first to say it wasn’t easy. There was manys a week she came home without a wage for herself after she had all the bills squared for a week working in her own wee town. Advertisement Over the years Mary looked after her own customer base and her suppliers. Mary buys all her supplies locally, free range eggs come up from Patton’s Whitehall Farm, her meat comes from local butchers; Rooney’s Walsh’s and Jim Gallagher in Mc Gaherns.Mary Matthews from celebrating 36 years in the baking and catering trade in Ballyshannon. and 19 years since she set up her own business in Shannons’ CornerThis week I was parked up outside the Café to enjoy some of Mary’s home cooking when I returned to my gleaming Skoda Kodi, I seen a local man eyeing it up, “what do you think?” I asked, he just kept looking at it as he got to the backend of the car and said “Ah Skoda, I thought it was a BMW!”Having worked in Ballyshannon off and on for the last 30 years, I know that there is a compliment in there somewhere.It saddens me to see our towns suffering in business so it’s a breath of fresh air to see Shannons’ Corner surviving, buying local, employing local, and cooking local for local customers and of course catering the odd lost “blow-in” like myself from “through the gap”.A perfect 10The new Skoda Kodiaq or “Kodi” as the say in Clar, ticks a lot of boxes for me. I am happy when others are happy in the car that I am driving.The Skoda Kodiaq parked outside the famous tin shop near Clar this week. Photo Brian McDaidThat’s why I just love estate cars, room for everyone and room for all their baggage! A good bit of power but easy to run, then there’s the grip, 4 wheel drive but not all the time only when you need it, making it the most efficient way to go. It’s only after all them wishes granted that I would consider that vehicle to be in the guise of an off roader.Driving the KodiThe man that mistook my Skoda for an X5 BMW outside Shannons’ corner in Ballyshannon need not feel bad. This Skoda Jeep and VW Toured and the Q5 are all based on the same floor pan, but have different levels of finish.Unlike the BMW and Audi, the extra will be extras and will have to be paid for on top of the price of the car. The Skoda we drove a 4×4 with 150bhp cost around €41,000, the Ambition starts at €29.395. That’s a lot of jeep (SUV) for that price.A view of the plush interior of the new Skoda Kodiaq from DMG Motors which we tested this week.This was also a seven seater with the two rear seats folding into the boot when they are not needed. There is an air of understated class driving a Skoda these days, something that Skoda may have mistakenly inherited from its posh cousin, the Audi. Years ago it was the Merc and BM’s that stole the show for class and the Audi was there or there about. Now more Skodas are filling the posh parking spaces where once the German brands names were king.McGettigan on Berocca Boast!There are unconfirmed reports that one of the top contenders in the “Fight for the Stage” fight night is already under club protest. The motor club have received a number of protests on one of the top contenders.“Deck-him” McGettigan who was one of the first members of the Donegal Motor Club to put his name in the hat for the forthcoming white colour event is under the spotlight from fellow club members.McGettigan who signed in as a Standard Production/ Showroom Class competitor but club members claimed they have already seen “Deck-him” out testing on a set of full slicks, which he is believed to have specially ordered in through the foot sportswear section of Michael Murphy’s.Illegal re fuelling Club official also claim to have information on traces of B1, B2 and dulce in his fuel intake and have also seen him on an unofficial fuel stop on the Port Rd to collect a chicken burrito with all the trimmings.Fellow club members are demanding to have Mc Gettigan upgraded to a more suitable “modified class” when he was seen arriving at the press conference with a packet of Berroca Boast (mixed berries flavour) sticking out of his back trousers pocket.‘Fight for The Stage’ with Donegal Motor ClubDonegal Motor Club is inviting local businesses to get behind a unique white collar boxing event this summer. ‘Donegal Fights for The Stage’ will see some of the biggest names in motorsport step inside the ring for a one-night-only boxing extravaganza.

The stat that will make Liverpool and Watford fans very optimistic

first_imgCrystal Palace v Liverpool match preview The Hornets registered an impressive 3-1 win at Burnley on Sunday – ending a barren run of twelve away matches in the league without a victory.The result means Javi Gracia’s men have a 100% record in the league so far, having claimed six points from their opening two matches.And after the game, a stat that will make the Watford faithful and Liverpool fans incredibly excited for the season ahead emerged. Liverpool will be looking to build on their win over West Ham in the league’s opening weekend It’s early days in the 2018/19 Premier League season but that doesn’t stop anyone from trying to predict who will finish where come May.Big sides Manchester City, Chelsea and Tottenham have hit the ground running while there have been surprisingly good starts for the likes of Watford and Bournemouth. 2 – Watford have won their opening two matches in a top-flight league season for only the second time – on the previous occasion (1982-83), they ended 2nd in the league behind Liverpool. Golden.— OptaJoe (@OptaJoe) August 19, 2018Although this was before the creation of the Premier League, the Watford faithful would be very happy to see a repeat of the days where John Barnes and Luther Blisset wreaked havoc on opposition defences.It will also be encouraging reading for Liverpool fans as they crave a first Premier League crown ever and their first league title since 1990.The Reds will be looking to prove that they’ve got more than stats going for them, however, as they take on Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park on Monday night and stay in touch with title favourites Manchester City.center_img 2 Watford have been one of the top flight’s surprise packages so far 2last_img read more
