Arsene Wenger could be counting his days as Arsenal manager, claims Lethal Bizzle

first_imgArsenal fan Lethal Bizzle has slammed Arsene Wenger for failing to buy an outfield player in the transfer window. Goalkeeper Petr Cech was the club’s only summer recruit, as Wenger ignored calls from fans to buy a ‘world class’ striker to turn them into genuine title contenders. Frustration was compounded by the news this week that Danny Welbeck will be out for a ‘period of months’ after undergoing knee surgery, leaving Olivier Giroud as the Gunners’ only orthodox forward. The rapper and actor was left confused by Wenger’s transfer policy, telling the Weekend Sports Breakfast: “I don’t know what Wenger’s playing at, he’s very stubborn.“I just think if we really want to challenge for the title he needs to pull his finger out and adapt to the whole wage system. “If we want something quality, we’re going to have to pay 30, 40 or £50million to get a top player in. I think he’s so stuck in his ways and he’s so reluctant to do that. Until we manage to do that, we’re way off the title, Chelsea are the champions and they’ve strengthened. “I thought with Cech, he’s actually going for it now and I thought he was going to nick Karim Benzema. Didn’t happen. And then take at least a defensive midfielder. Didn’t happen. We definitely needed a centre-back. Still hasn’t happened. “I don’t know if he sees something we don’t because he always does pull off miracles, we have over-achieved quite a few times and we always make the Champions League. “But I don’t think the team is strong enough to challenge for the title this season. “We’re way off and I think we’ll be lucky to get fourth this year. It’s inevitable we’ll get injuries – that’s football. January is the most panic-buying window so I don’t know if we’ll manage to get anyone by then. It’s a real shame. I think Arsene Wenger could be counting his days.”last_img read more

Tottenham confirm departure of transfer chief

first_img Franco Baldini with Daniel Levy 1 Tottenham have announced the departure of technical director Franco Baldini.The Italian, former England assistant to Fabio Capello, has been in the role since the summer of 2013.Brought in to overhaul the club’s recruitment strategy, he was widely criticised for the spending spree that followed Gareth Bale’s departure.After receiving £86m for the sale of Bale to Real Madrid, Spurs splashed out more than £100m on Erik Lamela, Roberto Soldado, Paulinho, Christian Eriksen, Etienne Capoue, Vlad Chiriches and Nacer Chadli.Few of those arrivals, however, made a positive impact at White Hart Lane, and Soldado, Paulinho, Capoue and Chiriches all left White Hart Lane in the summer.Baldini’s position was weakened by the appointment of Paul Mitchell as the club’s head of recruitment last November.And now the 54-year-old has left the north London club after agreeing a severance package.A statement from the club read: “Franco joined us as technical director in June 2013 from AS Roma where he was general director. He leaves us now to spend time outside of club football. We wish him all the best for the future.”last_img read more

AC Milan’s on loan Liverpool striker ‘has taken too much sun’ – Berlusconi

first_img Mario Balotelli 1 AC Milan president Silvio Berlusconi has described on-loan Liverpool striker Mario Balotelli as an “Italian who has taken a bit too much sun”.The 79-year-old former Prime Minister of Italy is this weekend celebrating the 30-year anniversary of his 1986 takeover of Serie A giants Milan, and made his comments about Balotelli – the son of Ghanaian immigrants – during a scheduled visit to the Milanello training complex.When asked if Balotelli, who has made only 10 league appearances this season, was a valuable player in Sinisa Mihajlovic’s squad, he said in quotes carried by Tuttosport: “We are rich with individual talents, like (French forward Jeremy) Menez, and Balotelli, who is an Italian who has taken a bit too much sun.”He added: “Mario has unmatched athletic attributes. In training I see him take shots that break the net and he shows outstanding ball control.“Several times I have said to him ‘Mario, do you want to win? You need to score to win and to do that you have to get close to the goal’.”In 2008 Berlusconi described the United States’ president-elect Barack Obama as “young, handsome and tanned” while his brother Paolo Berlusconi used the word ‘n****’ to describe Balotelli when he first signed for Milan in February 2013.Silvio Berlusconi’s latest gaffe has not been given prominence in the sports pages of Italy’s leading newspapers, with Tuttosport making reference to the politician’s attempts to “backtrack on his joke” by praising Balotelli’s ability.Balotelli has regularly been the target of racist abuse from opposition fans in Italy and while playing abroad with the national team – a section of Croatia supporters threw bananas at him during a group-stage match at Euro 2012.The former Manchester City striker has scored only two goals in all competitions for Milan this term and has not started a league game since September.last_img read more

Liverpool v Man United combined all-time European XI: Find out who makes the cut

first_img 11 Left back: Alan Kennedy (Liverpool) – Kennedy scored the winning goal in two European Cup finals (1981 and 1984), with the second the final kick of a nervy penalty shootout against Roma in their own stadium. Honourable mention: Dennis Irwin Right midfielder: Cristiano Ronaldo – Impossible to leave out the competition’s highest ever goalscorer. Ronaldo’s goals and performances on the way to winning the 2008 trophy earned him the Ballon d’Or that year – even if he did miss a penalty in the final. Honourable mention: David Beckham 11 11 Centre back: Bill Foulkes (Manchester United) – He may not have as many trophies as some of his Liverpudian counterparts but Foulkes was one of only two men to win the 1968 European Cup final after surviving the 1958 Munich air disaster. He fittingly scored the goal to take Manchester United to that Wembley final. Honourable mentions: Jamie Carragher, Emlyn Hughes, Phil Thompson, Rio Ferdinand. Centre back: Alan Hansen (Liverpool) – Before he became Match of the Day’s top pundit and dropped the ‘you won’t win anything with kids’ clanger, Hansen won three European Cups during the ‘70s and ‘80s as Liverpool won everything possible. 11 Striker: George Best – Best dazzled in the 1968 final, turning Benfica’s defenders inside out on the way and scored in the final, as United became the first English club to win the Champions League. He also won the Ballon d’Or that year. Thursday night will signal the first time that Manchester United and Liverpool will face off in a European competition.It is one of the biggest rivalries in football with eight European Cups lifted between them.Manchester United became England’s first winners in 1968 before Liverpool won the competition four times in eight years from 1977 to 1984.They also boast arguably the two greatest comebacks in the competition’s history, with Manchester United scoring twice in injury time to beat Bayern Munich 2-1 in 1999 and Liverpool winning on penalties in 2005 despite losing 3-0 at half time to AC Milan.And despite the setting of their first European tussle being on the less glamorous stage of the Europa League, the rivalry will be no less fierce.Legends have made history for both sides but who has contributed more in Europe? Roy Keane or Graeme Souness? Steven Gerrard or Sir Bobby Charlton? Cristiano Ronaldo or Kevin Keegan?Some magnificent players have represented the clubs in Europe, far too many to fit into one team, but talkSPORT gave it a go anyway.Let us know who you think should have been included in the comments section below!Click the arrow, above, right to see the Manchester United and Liverpool combined all-time European XI. Right back: Phil Neal (Liverpool) – No Briton has won more European Cups, with Neal present for FOUR of Liverpool’s five triumphs. Only three players have won the competition more than the Englishman. Honourable mention: Gary Neville Centre midfielder: Steven Gerrard – Gerrard almost single-handedly dragged Liverpool to the podium to collect their fifth Champions League trophy with his displays in 2005. From his late rocket against Olympiakos to scrape through the group stages, to his header to begin the magnificent comeback from 3-0 down at half time, Gerrard optimised Liverpool’s miracle of Istanbul. 11 11 11 11 11 Left midfielder: Ryan Giggs – Giggs has won the trophy twice, scoring the winning penalty in the 2008 final. Only two players have played more games in the competition and the Welshman is the only player to score in 16 different Champions League seasons. Goalkeeper: Ray Clemence (Liverpool) – Prior to working within the England set up as a coach, Clemence won three European Cups with Liverpool, keeping two clean sheets in three of those finals in the process. Honourable mentions: Peter Schmeichel, Jerzy Dudek, Bruce Grobbelaar, Edwin van der Sar Centre midfielder: Bobby Charlton – Like Foulkes, Charlton was a survivor of 1958 tragedy who played in the emotional 1968 final success. Playing at centre midfield, Manchester United’s all-time top goalscorer bagged a brace as the club ran out 4-1 winners after extra-time. Honourable mentions: Paul Scholes, Roy Keane, Graeme Souness, Ray Kennedy 11 11 Striker: Kenny Dalglish – ‘King Kenny’ won three European Cups, including in 1978 when he scored the winner with a lovely dink over Club Brugge goalkeeper Birger Jensen. Honourable mentions: Ian Rush, Kevin Keegan, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, Dwight Yorke, Andy Cole, Denis Lawlast_img read more

Jim Dear sticks to business

first_imgAside from that, Dear avoided controversy and focused instead on the planned Avalon at South Bay mall project, recent improvements at the Southbay Pavilion and other developments affecting the Carson business community. Dear showed about a dozen clips designed to promote local businesses. In one, Walter Neil, the chairman of the Carson chamber, touted BP’s new, energy-efficient Carson headquarters. In another, a representative of the Tire Co. announced that the company would be leasing vacant office space in the old Nissan headquarters. A developer gave a presentation on a new Walgreen’s and a Starbucks slated for the Ralphs shopping center at Carson Street and Avalon Boulevard, adjacent to City Hall. Because the event is hosted by the chamber, economic issues tend to take center stage. This year’s speech made no mention of public safety, despite a spate of recent gang killings, nor of the city’s recent budget deficits, which have spurred discussion of seeking a utility tax. Instead, Dear focused on bringing more chain restaurants to the city, and also some jazz and R&B concerts to the Home Depot Center. Neighbors have complained lately about noise from rock concerts there. “Steady, consistent growth is what we’re looking for,” Dear said. “Only if we stay the course, focus on our goals, and work as a team, can we continue to achieve those goals.” gene.maddaus@dailybreeze.com160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Dear began with a tribute to former Councilwoman Julie Ruiz Raber, a loyal ally to the mayor who was defeated in the March election by Lula Davis-Holmes. He credited Raber with helping spur the city’s economic development during her four-year term. “The business community wants to see stability and teamwork,” Dear said, to an audience comprising mostly members of the Carson Chamber of Commerce. Dear did not introduce any of the current council members, expanding on a pattern established at last year’s speech when he failed to mention his opponents, Councilmen Elito Santarina and Mike Gipson. “He talked about a team,” Gipson said. “And there were some players on the team that weren’t mentioned.” CARSON: Mayor leaves council dissension and safety issues out of his State of the City address.

Carmakers spinning wheels

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREStriving toward a more perfect me: Doug McIntyre Your Fresno lawsuit, placed there because for some reason you believe judges in California’s Central Valley are less environmentally conscious than elsewhere, basically said state emissions laws are now in conflict with federal fuel economy laws. If you were right, and those laws were in conflict, the federal laws would prevail and the state laws would not be worth the paper they’re printed on. But now your Fresno case might even be dismissed without so much as a courtroom argument, if judges there determine you’ve already had your day in court in Vermont and lost. For the case you put before Judge Sessions was pretty much a rehash of what you’re arguing in Fresno, since Vermont is one of 12 other states that automatically adopts California’s emissions standards every time this state toughens them. Here are some of the facts you must now consider in determining whether it’s a waste of considerable dollars to keep on with your resistance to the California standards: As adopted by the 12 states where they are now law, the new greenhouse gas standards could eventually cut carbon dioxide emissions by 100 million tons annually. That’s about 20 times as much CO2 as is taken out of the air annually by all the growth on all the farmland in California. Quite a bit. You’ve argued that meeting the new standards will raise car prices to levels that will cut sales and make new vehicles prohibitive for most ordinary citizens. Of course, you have tried this same argument every time California passed any kind of anti-smog regulation for as long as smog controls have existed. You resisted the first primitive smog control devices, you fought catalytic converters, you didn’t want to make either electric vehicles or gasoline/electric hybrids – which are now your fastest-growing sales area. So you’ve wasted a lot of breath and legal fees while losing every time. You’ll lose this time, too, if Judge Sessions is not a complete incompetent (and nothing in his long record suggests he is that). There’s one other thing: You live on this planet, too. While it may be true that other planets also are warming at this time, suggesting a cyclic event is happening on the sun, there is scientific consensus that carbon dioxide is at its highest atmospheric levels ever and that the higher those levels rise, the higher go average worldwide temperatures. So even if part of global warming is natural, part of it is man-made and we can’t tell whether we are causing the larger share or not. So if we want to preserve life and geography as we know them, it behooves us to do what we can to mitigate our contribution to the planetary warming. That includes you. This is the reasoning behind the California standards. Now that they’ve been upheld in Vermont, there’s a good chance six more states that don’t do it automatically will pass similar laws. These include Arizona, Florida, New Mexico, Utah, Illinois and Minnesota. Add them to California and the northeastern states that automatically follow us, and you have more than half the American vehicle marketplace. You argue that California’s rules create a situation where you need to make two kinds of cars. Of course, you’ve done that for many years. We’ve all heard of California cars and so-called “49-state” cars. Never been a big deal for you, has it? But you’re right in one way. It is more efficient to build 50-state cars, meeting standards everywhere. So do it. Make all your cars meet the California standard likely to exist soon in at least half the country. Do that and you’ll save a lot of legal fees, months of grief and a lot of foul emissions. You’ll become good citizens on your own for a change, rather than being dragged to it kicking and screaming. What a positive change that would be! So do yourself a favor and read the Vermont decision closely. Then act logically for once, with the history of your repeatedly failed obstructionist efforts in mind. Then we’ll all have peace and be doing more of our share to keep the planet going.

Listen up, General Motors, Ford, Toyota, Nissan, Chrysler, Mazda and the rest . Judge William K. Sessions III has essentially told you that even though you chose Fresno as the locale for a lawsuit aiming to throw out California’s new rules aiming to cut down greenhouse gas emissions, you won’t win.

Hospital knew of sex attacks, lawsuits claim

first_imgPrior to three women going to police in early 2006, hospital officials say, there had been only one allegation against Gaspar – and that was unsubstantiated after a full hospital investigation. “The bottom line is the hospital responded appropriately and responsibly in taking steps to protect patients and to address the situation as soon as it was reported to them,” hospital attorney Ken Drake said. “The hospital has made every effort to be responsible and to make a commitment that every complaint by patients is addressed.” Soon after he was hired in September 2004, Gaspar was accused by a nurse of groping her breasts and sexually harassing her, according to one lawsuit. But after informing her supervisor, she said, the hospital did nothing to investigate her complaints. “The complaint speaks for itself,” said Anthony Egbase, the woman’s attorney. “She’s psychologically and emotionally injured. She’s getting some treatment.” Another woman checked into the Tarzana hospital in April 2006 to have her gall bladder removed and after awaking from anesthesia, was coerced into a bathroom by Gaspar, another suit alleges. He then forcibly removed her pajamas and, over her objections, washed her and sexually assaulted her. In September 2005, a woman suffering from appendicitis checked into the hospital, according to another suit. After surgery, Gaspar molested her, it said. The following November, another patient alleges, she awoke from surgery to find the nurse’s aide cleaning her in a sexually offensive manner. Three weeks later, she submitted a written complaint to the hospital about the assault. “My complaint isn’t against Gaspar,” said Maryann Gallagher, an attorney who has filed a class-action lawsuit against the hospital on behalf of a different alleged victim. “My complaint is against the hospital for keeping him employed after it knew of numerous sexual assaults on other patients.”160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Police and attorneys are calling for any more witnesses or victims to step forward. Police have also sought the public’s help in catching Gaspar, 39, of Canoga Park. He fled with his wife and toddler son after jumping bail in July 2006. Police believe he might be working at a medical facility in Sacramento, Arizona, Colorado or New Mexico. His victims allege the assaults took place at the medical center’s Tarzana campus at 18321 Clark St., where Gaspar had worked as a certified nursing assistant since 2004. Five lawsuits filed against Encino-Tarzana Regional Medical Center allege the hospital knew a nursing assistant had molested patients and did nothing about it. The suits, including a complaint filed Friday, say the hospital was aware its aide had sexually assaulted patients before he was suspended in April 2006. They also allege the hospital failed to conduct adequate background checks on Ramon Eduardo Rodas Gaspar, a former certified nursing assistant wanted by police on suspicion of sexually fondling or groping more than 10 women still sedated after surgery. “The hospital has failed to take action to protect their patients, having known of the activities of Mr. Gaspar,” said Chris R.

Bernanke hints Fed likely to cut interest Dec. 11

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREPettersson scores another winner, Canucks beat Kings WASHINGTON – Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke on Thursday hinted that another interest rate cut may be needed to bolster the economy. The worsening credit crunch, a deepening housing slump and rising energy prices probably will create some “headwinds for the consumer in the months ahead,” he said. Bernanke said he expects consumer spending will continue to grow and suggested the country can withstand the current problems without a recession. But he indicated that consumers could turn more cautious as they try to cope with all the stresses. Fed policymakers will need to be “exceptionally alert and flexible,” Bernanke said. That comment probably will be viewed as a sign the Fed may lower interest rates when it meets on Dec. 11, its last 2007 session.

CONSUMERS OUTRAGED AS SUPERMARKET CHIEFS STOCK EASTER EGGS ALREADY!

first_imgEaster Eggs are already on the shelves, even though we’re 69 days away from Easter Sunday.Donegal consumers have taken to social media to lambast supermarket chiefs for stocking Easter Eggs, even though we’re still 69 days away from the popular holiday.It’s TEN weeks until we celebrate Easter but that hasn’t stopped retailers from rolling out their Easter Holiday marketing campaigns.Lent hasn’t even started yet, and already the temptation to purchase those delicious eggs are upon us. We’ve only just got back into the gym and are attempting to get the excesses of Christmas out of our system and now we have to walk past and ignore the urge to buy a chocolate egg.However, the fact they’ve already hit the shelves has angered many parents in Donegal and a number have taken to their own personal social media accounts to vent their fury.One reader e-mailed us earlier this evening to relay her disgust that there already on the shelves.The woman who wishes to remain anonymous said, “Was in TESCO in Letterkenny earlier this afternoon when one of my children said “Mum can I get a Kit-Kat Easter Egg. “I actually laughed and said don’t be silly it’s only January, you can’t get Easter Eggs now, Lent hasn’t even started.“He then threw the egg in my trolley and I actually couldn’t believe it when I saw it.“I then stepped back and seen an entire shelve full with all types of Easter Eggs.“It’s just madness, why do retailers have to stock them so early?“I understand why do they do it at Christmas, but Easter really? Ten weeks until then and we’ve already got them on the shelves. It’s utter madness. Others have expressed their surprise and disappointment that there already available to buy and feel it puts unnecessary pressure on parents who are still paying off Christmas.CONSUMERS OUTRAGED AS SUPERMARKET CHIEFS STOCK EASTER EGGS ALREADY! was last modified: January 25th, 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)Tags:AngerBusinessConsumersEaster eggsletterkennynewsPARENTSRetailerssupermarketstescolast_img read more
