  • Dortmund and Bayern Munich planning raids for Ireland youngster Troy Parrott

    first_img4 Parrott made his senior Ireland debut against New Zealand during the recent international breakCredit: Getty Images – Getty4 Replacing Mauricio Pochettino with Jose Mourinho has thrown uncertainty to the future of Parrott at SpursCredit: Reuters BORUSSIA DORTMUND are ready to battle it out with arch-rivals Bayern Munich to sign Ireland youngster Troy Parrott, according to reports.The Spurs striker is seen as one of the most exciting teenage prospects in Europe and signed his first professional contract on his 17th birthday in February.4 Troy Parrott is wanted by Europe’s top clubsDortmund took teenager Jadon Sancho from Manchester City in 2017 and the England winger’s development in Germany has been clear to see.Plenty of other young players have left Premier League clubs for Germany over recent years to great success.So the chance to take on Parrott and do something similar would no doubt appeal to Lucien Favre as his side look to capitalise on Bayern’s uncertainty over the managerial situation with Hans-Dieter Flick remaining in interim charge.But according to the Express, giants Real Madrid and Juventus are also monitoring Parrott’s situation and could try to lure him away from North London.4 Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich are among a number of clubs interested in Tottenham striker Troy ParrottCredit: ReutersParrott arrived at Spurs from Irish side Belvedere two years ago and was incredibly popular with former boss Mauricio Pochettino.He featured in pre-season alongside Harry Kane and made his presence known in the Uefa Youth League with five goals in three appearances – plus an assist against Bayern.The forward made his first-team debut in the Carabao Cup defeat to Colchester and was on the bench for the 1-1 draw with Everton at the beginning of November.IRELAND INTERNATIONALHe had done enough to convince Mick McCarthy to hand him his senior Republic of Ireland debut.Parrott started for the Irish in their 3-1 friendly win over New Zealand at the Aviva Stadium last week.He did not come on in the crucial clash with Denmark meaning he dropped down to play with the Under-21s in their win over Sweden on Tuesday.And it was on the pitch at full-time after the win over the Swedes that Parrott was informed of Spurs’ decision to sack Poch.The Argentine was replaced less than 12 hours later by Jose Mourinho, who won his first game in charge against West Ham yesterday.ACCA WITH LADBROKES Pick up a whole load of acca features to help you land the big oneFor all his success and silverware in his career, one criticism of Mourinho has been his reluctance to give youth a chance.So immediately suggestions that Parrott may need to leave – either permanently or on loan – to progress his career surfaced, with interest from around Europe.Jose, though, was quick to set out his stall after being unveiled as the new Spurs boss by commenting on the club’s exciting academy.He said: “I really like this squad. Of course, I’m not going to say names, I’m not going to tell you individuals because this is completely against my concept of what a team has to be, but I like a lot the ability of the squad.Latest transfer newsLive Blogblues newsChelsea news LIVE – Latest updates from Stamford BridgeLive Blogunited newsMan Utd news LIVE – Latest updates from Old TraffordLive BlogGunners newsArsenal news LIVE – Latest updates from the EmiratesGossipGOING DUTCHChelsea ‘to grab Mbuyamba on free deal’ with defender set to leave BarcelonaDEPAY CHARTMan Utd flop Memphis used computer data and analytics to quit Old TraffordLive BlogBLUES NEWSChelsea news LIVE: Latest updates and transfer gossip from Stamford BridgeGossipFIT IN HIS BELEArsenal turn attention to Lyon striker Dembele as Lacazette replacementGossipGUNNER MAKE A MOVEArsenal weighing up transfer move for Barcelona star Rafinha“There is not one manager in the world who does not like to play young players and help young players to evolve, there is not one.“The problem is sometimes you get into clubs and the work that is below you is not good enough to produce these players, but when you have them, the managers are always happy to develop these players.“I look to our history and you see that the academy is always giving the talent the first team needs.

  • Hernández Hernández took two penalties after the VAR notice

    first_imgThe VAR of Atlético-Sevilla has had a lot of work during the first part. Even twice he had to notify Hernández Hernández, field referee, of two possible penalties that he had not appreciated from the field of play. On both occasions, after consulting the field monitor, he ended up decreeing the maximum penalty. One for each team.The first controversial action was almost half an hour away. In an attack by Atlético de Madrid, the rojiblancos players claimed a penalty on João Felix. The player had been shot down inside the area, but In addition to that action, González Fuertes, VAR referee, was reviewing a possible hand of Diego Carlos. The Sevilla player makes a move with his arm and the ball hits. The Canarian referee, after reviewing the play on the monitor, decides to indicate the maximum penalty. Morata transformed it from eleven meters. Iturralde González, the referee of the Cadena Ser y AS, was against the decision of Hernández Hernández: “For me, that is not a hand and there is no trip to João Félix. I do not see a penalty.” A few minutes later, the VAR re-entered the game. This time in the Atlético area. An intervention that was delayed in time since he had to check if the ball had crossed the goal line the Oblak stop to Reguilón. Once determined no, He had to review a Trippier entry about Ocampos. The rojiblanco player shot down the Sevilla player after touching his support leg. Hernández Hernández pointed it out after going to the monitor and Ocampos achieved 2-2. On this occasion, Iturralde González does match the decision of his former partner: “It’s Trippier’s penalty, hit on the leg of Ocampos.”last_img read more

  • ‘Give Back to Your Country’

    first_imgFormer VP Boakai at the graduation of Stella Maris Polytechnic, Monrovia-Boakai cautions Stella Maris GraduatesFormer Vice President Joseph Nyuma Boakai has cautioned 500 students who graduated from Stella Maris Polytechnic over the weekend to work tirelessly and give back to their country in order to be able to develop the  nation.Mr. Boakai’s challenge was contained in a speech he delivered as guest speaker at the 19th commencement convocation of the Stella Maris Polytechnic under the theme, “Education: The Enabling Tool for Continuous Development and Fair Distribution of National Wealth.”The elaborate ceremony was held on August 31, 2018, in the school’s newly constructed auditorium, one of the largest privately-owned halls in Monrovia.According to Mr. Boakai, in order for any of the young graduates to give back to their country, they must be focused, resolved, hardworking, and exercise discipline in their quest to reach greater heights of achievement and distinction.“I pray that you are mindful of the reality that you break free from the walls of this institution at a time when our world is beset with a new host of interminable challenges, twists and turns, surges and drops. As our nation is no exception to this global state of flux and uncertainty, you have upon your shoulders a stark responsibility to develop a knack for foresight, innovation and thoroughness,” the former Vice President said to a deafening round of applause from the graduates and members of the platform guests.While sharing his experiences, Boakai said life is like echoes in the forest that send back messages to the receiver, bringing back exactly what the receiver may have said earlier in the town, because “if you say kind words, they are repeated to you in the same way, but if you say otherwise, you get the same words back. So graduates, give the best to your country at all times, and surely you will reap good in return.”He said on such occasion, graduating from one stage of the educational quest to another, most often people hear the usual exhortation and encouragement from speakers to the graduates not to settle for what has been achieved, but instead to reach out for higher heights.“And so, with no reservation, I do add my voice in the hope of further reinforcing the messages to you on the exceptional imperative for you to press on, remaining focused, resolved, embracing hard work, and keeping your action and utterances polished in discipline in all that you do,” he challenged the graduates.“On enrollment at this premier faith-based institution a few years ago, you consciously undertook to imbibe and live the tenets of the motto of Stella Maris Polytechnic, “Wisdom, Knowledge and Skills for Service,” Mr. Boakai said. “Here you are today having worked, prayed, and humbled yourselves, proving beyond doubt that you are indeed true believers. You are today reaping what you have sown in hard study.”He also cautioned the graduates to be aware of the most important thing to live with no regrets, treat people the way they will want to be treated, “work like you don’t need the money, love like you’ve never been hurt, and dance like you do when nobody’s watching.”Exuberant GraduatesMr. Boakai: “The height you have attained at Stella Maris leaves no doubt in my mind that you do fully appreciate the great importance of education; therefore, I should spare you a lecture on the relevance of seeking knowledge. You surely know that this is a journey that only ends when one takes the last breath.Boakai with Stella Maria grads“This is all the more why I see so much brilliance in your choice of the topic, ‘Education: The Enabling Tool for Continuous Development and Fair Distribution of National Wealth.’”He defined education as a tool, but said some great thinkers have also defined education as “molding of the mind.”Quoting the great Mathematician, Albert Einstein, Mr. Boakai said “Education is what remains after we have forgotten what we learned in school, because learning teaches a system of thought and knowledge as bedrock of learning.”He said education is indeed the enabling tool for continuous development and fair distribution of national wealth, “but unless such distribution is in the hands of distributors, who have the thought of country, the love of country, and are committed to building that country, I am afraid the fair distribution process can become a source of serious disappointment for graduates who want to serve their country.”Boakai therefore said true leaders and distributors of national wealth must consider themselves as stewards, “so the fear of God must make them want to see lives improved, a country developed and citizens allowed to enjoy the resource of their country.”Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

  • Boys’ basketball: Hofman won’t be on sideline

    first_img Spark plug: If there was an award for the best sixth man in the area, Dallas Rutherford would have to be considered one of the front-runners for the honor, particularly after Saturday’s performance. The 6-foot-3 junior from Campbell Hall of North Hollywood scored eight of his season-high 17 points in a crucial stretch of third quarter and added five rebounds in 78-64 victory over Francis Parker of San Diego in the Div.IV regional semifinals. The breakout game comes as a good sign for Rutherford, who’s been hampered by a troublesome knee injury for a majority of the season, and for the Vikings (31-1) heading into Saturday’s regional final against Horizon of San Diego (24-6) at 7 p.m. at Cal State Fullerton. “That was the real Dallas that everyone saw on Saturday,” Rutherford said. “I’m feeling normal again. Everything is coming together now. “The coaching staff has taken some heat for me this year, but they’ve kept their faith in me and that’s been big. I just needed one game to get things going. I’ve got my confidence back.” (818) 713-3607 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! “It’s an unfortunate situation,” said Hofman, who was ejected from a game for the first time in his 21-year coaching history with the program. “I wonder about the referees’ judgement. From my experience, 99 out of 100 officials use a little more professionalism.” Hofman picked up the first technical midway through the first quarter and was tossed after picking up his second at the 3:46 mark of the second quarter after Darren Ho was called for a blocking foul. “I certainly didn’t demean the officials in any way,” Hofman said. “In fact, I was sitting down on the bench when I got thrown out. There was no warning on either technical. It was a little bit outrageous.” Veteran assistant Jeff Stephens will take over for Hofman. He’ll be aided by Jim Harvey, Ray O’Brien and Chris Evelyn. “My assistants have more than 60 years of coaching experience, so they’re competent and I have all the faith in the world in them,” Hofman said. “The kids know what we expect from them too. They know the system better than anyone.” Most consider Tom Hofman to be one of the more personable, mild mannered boys’ basketball coaches in the area. The door to his office at LaCanada High is seemingly always open to players, parents and the media. He’s more than willing to take time out of his busy schedule to answer just about any question, often providing insightful and informative responses in his own unique, subdued way. center_img That’s what makes the circumstances surrounding his two technical fouls and subsequent ejection from Saturday’s 65-58 victory over Mission Bay of San Diego in a Div. III Southern California regional semifinal game all the more puzzling. According to Southern Section rules, if a coach is ejected from a game, he’s automatically suspended from the next contest, meaning Hofman won’t be on the sideline when the Spartans (30-3) face Artesia of Lakewood (31-2) in Saturday’s regional final at Pauley Pavilion. last_img read more

  • Public reproves Bush, Congress

    first_imgWASHINGTON – The caustic, four-month-long Iraq stalemate between President George W. Bush and the Democratic-led Congress has produced plenty of sharp rhetoric, one veto and a dismal public view of both the president and his Capitol Hill adversaries. In an AP-Ipsos poll, a scant 35 percent of people said they approve of the overall job Bush is doing – the same amount who rated Congress positively. That represented a 5 percentage point drop for lawmakers since last month, and it left Bush at the same meager level he has been stuck at for months. That’s near his record low in the AP-Ipsos poll of 32 percent last January. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was viewed more favorably than either Congress or Bush, but she faces problems of her own, including a gender gap that shows significantly fewer men than women behind her. Her support is also eroding among younger voters and other groups. In a rare instance of bipartisanship, members of both parties point to Iraq as the culprit. “Everything revolves around the war,” said Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y. “I support the president, but the fact is it’s unpopular right now.” “The American public is siding with Democrats” in opposing the Iraq war, said Rep. Henry Waxman, D-Los Angeles. But if Bush and Congress don’t reach agreement on war legislation soon, “it would put both sides in a situation where everybody would start losing.” After taking control of Congress and promising change in January, Democrats have pushed bills on stem cell research, student loans and minimum wage. Little of significance, though, has been signed into law. Rising gasoline prices could also be a factor in lawmakers’ unpopularity, but lawmakers concur that Iraq has overshadowed everything. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

  • Spurs star Kane out until March with ankle injury

    first_imgIt is the third successive season the England captain has missed games due to an ankle injury.“Following preliminary assessments, we can confirm that Harry Kane has damaged ligaments in his left ankle, sustained during Sunday’s match against Manchester United,” a statement on Tottenham’s website said on Tuesday.“The striker will continue to be monitored by our medical staff as he commences rehabilitation and is expected to return to training in early March.”Kane was injured after being caught between United defenders Phil Jones and Victor Lindelof while trying to set up a last-minute chance for Tottenham.He received treatment after the full-time whistle before walking off the pitch clearly in severe discomfort.Vowing to return as fast as possible, Kane wrote on his Twitter account: “Injuries are part of the game but no one will be working harder to get back fit. Thanks for the messages.”Kane’s absence is a major blow for Tottenham as they chase the first trophy of manager Mauricio Pochettino’s five-year reign.The 25-year-old is Tottenham’s top scorer this season with 20 goals in 31 appearances in all competitions.He had scored seven times in his last seven matches to keep third-placed Tottenham in with an outside chance in the Premier League title hunt, the north Londoners sitting nine points behind leaders Liverpool.Kane, who won the Golden Boot as the World Cup’s leading marksman last year, also scored the penalty winner against Chelsea in the League Cup semi-final first leg.Now he will miss the second leg at Chelsea next week, as well as the FA Cup fourth-round trip to Crystal Palace and at least six crucial league games.The first leg of Tottenham’s Champions League last-16 tie at home to Borussia Dortmund will also come too soon for Kane.He faces a race to be fit for the north London derby against Arsenal on March 2 and the second leg at Dortmund three days later.England boss Gareth Southgate will hope Kane is back in contention for England’s opening Euro 2020 qualifier against the Czech Republic on March 22.More immediately, with South Korea forward Son Heung-min away on international duty and Brazil winger Lucas Moura also injured, Pochettino is left with Fernando Llorente and Vincent Janssen as his only fit senior forwards.Speaking before tests confirmed Kane’s ligament damage, Pochettino had already admitted he was “worried” about the situation.Midfielder Moussa Sissoko was also injured against United to further deplete Pochettino’s options.Janssen has endured a wretched time with Tottenham, while Llorente has hardly played either, although he did score a hat-trick in the recent FA Cup third-round win at fourth-tier Tranmere.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Harry Kane will be out until March with ankle ligament damage © IKIMAGES/AFP/File / Ian KINGTONLONDON, United Kingdom, Jan 15 – Tottenham striker Harry Kane will be sidelined until March after suffering ankle ligament damage in Sunday’s defeat against Manchester United.Kane sustained the injury to his left ankle in the closing moments of the 1-0 loss at Wembley and scans have now confirmed the extent of the problem.last_img read more
