NAOMH CONAILL ‘EXTREMELY AGGRIEVED’ AT APPEAL REFUSAL

first_imgNAOMH CONAILL club leaders have tonight expressed their anger at their failure to have their game against Glenswilly replayed.The Glenties based club had asked for their county championship semi-final to be replayed after the referee in their semi-final against Glenswilly last Sunday failed to send off a player who had already been yellow-carded.When he later received a black card, he should have been given a red card and sent off. Instead Glenswilly were able to replace him. Naomh Conaill’s appeal against the result was turned down by Donegal county board executives. An appeal to the Ulster Council was refused at lunchtime today.In a statement tonight, Naomh Conaill said: “CLG Naomh Conaill received notification from the Ulster Council in relation to our appeal and now wish to state that we feel extremely aggrieved at the decisions reached by both the CCC Donegal and the Ulster Council with regard to the matter.”Glenswilly play St Eunan’s in the county final tomorrow.  NAOMH CONAILL ‘EXTREMELY AGGRIEVED’ AT APPEAL REFUSAL was last modified: November 1st, 2014 by John2Share 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:appealglenswillyNaomh ConaillUlsterlast_img read more

Dembele criticism is overblown, says agent

first_imgThe criticism of Ousmane Dembele is overblown, according to the player’s agent Moussa Sissoko.Dembele was not in the Barcelona squad that suffered a 4-3 shock loss to Real Betis on Sunday as reports circulated he had been disciplined for a violation of team rules.Reportedly, Dembele did not properly inform the club he was too ill to train last week, which led to his exclusion. Article continues below Editors’ Picks Man Utd ready to spend big on Sancho and Haaland in January Who is Marcus Thuram? Lilian’s son who is top of the Bundesliga with Borussia Monchengladbach Brazil, beware! Messi and Argentina out for revenge after Copa controversy Best player in MLS? Zlatan wasn’t even the best player in LA! Barcelona manager Ernesto Valverde claimed the omission was not a punishment and Sissoko has also taken those reports to task, claiming they are the latest in a long line of ill-informed rumours about his client. “All these criticisms make me laugh,” Sissoko told RMC Sport. “It had already begun with a so-called delay at the meeting before the Champions League match against Inter. I am surprised that very serious newspapers can take back this information because Ousmane didn’t arrive late.“His coach has confirmed that the fact that he wasn’t in the starting XI was not due to a delay.”The agent also addressed the discussion over Dembele’s illness this past week, confirming the club was annoyed by the situation but added there is no doubt over the attacker’s sickness.“It is true that Ousmane was sick (before Betis),” Sissoko said. “He had not slept all night, he was very tired.“He missed the morning training and what the club has blamed us is that he did not warn a little before that a doctor can see his mismanagement at home. He did it a little late.“But he was sick, the club confirmed he had a (gastrointestinal illness), he missed the training because of that. And I am surprised that we also make controversy when he is sick.”Sissoko pointed to his client’s continued recalls to the France national team, along with assurances from Barcelona sporting director Eric Abidal as proof concern over Dembele’s work habits are overblown.Sissoko added: “Ousmane continues to work, he is in a big club, he is in national team and Didier Deschamps continues to call him.“He is very much demanding on the behavior of the players and their performances so if Ousmane is today in team of France, he deserves it.“I also had (Barcelona sporting director) Eric Abidal on the phone. He is very happy with Ousmane, he told me he was training very well. He doesn’t question him at all right now.”Deschamps also weighed in on the Dembele discussion Monday, saying that the attacker has a habit of being late to training, though he is not alone in that.The France boss also added he hopes Dembele can improve his work habits going forward, though he did not want to comment on how Barcelona’s club policy.last_img read more

Football Marshon Lattimore primed and ready to be a top 10 NFL

Former Ohio State cornerback Marshon Lattimore addresses the media during the 2017 NFL Combine in the Indiana Convention Center in Indianapolis. Credit: Ashley Nelson | Sports DirectorINDIANAPOLIS — Marshon Lattimore has come a long way from Glenville High School in Cleveland. From a receiving a devastating hamstring injury that nearly ruined his chances of playing football to becoming the No. 1 ranked cornerback in the 2017 NFL Draft, Lattimore has found a way to keep his dreams of playing in the NFL alive.His opening statement in the Indiana Convention Center on Sunday during the NFL combine reflected just that.“It’s just a blessing to be in the position I am today,” he said. “Because, I didn’t even know if I was going to play or not. If I was going to be healthy enough to play.”Lattimore had problems with his hamstring in both 2014 and 2015, and was kept off the field for essentially the entirety of both seasons. But, after a long rehab process and a few more gray hairs for his coaching staff watching anxiously to see if his legs would hold up in 2016, Lattimore will likely hear his name called in the top half of the first round of the NFL draft.NFL teams erred on the side of caution with the speedy cornerback, and wasted no time getting right to the point about his pesky hamstrings. Lattimore laughed when asked about how teams addressed his previous injury, and said it was the first question asked by many.Whether Lattimore can remain healthy remains to be seen, but the numbers he put up in 2016 paired with a clean bill of health following the end of the season should bode well for the Ohio native.With four interceptions, one returned for a touchdown, and nine pass deflections, along with stellar lateral quickness and top-end speed, his designation as the draft’s best cornerback is all too obvious.With OSU quickly becoming a haven for top secondary talent, Lattimore was around more than a few current NFL cornerbacks in his time with the Buckeyes. The most notable of those players,Lattimore said, have been New York Giant Eli Apple, Denver Bronco Bradley Roby and fellow 2017 NFL Draft prospect Gareon Conley.“I played with Eli, so I learned a lot from him,” he said. “Learned a lot from Bradley Roby. I wasn’t there when he was there so I just talked to him. I asked him about certains things, certain techniques and they give me feedback all the time. Even with Gareon, because he started a year before I even started, so I look at all of them for help.”The New York Jets seem like the most likely landing spot for Lattimore barring any unforeseen issues ahead of the draft. A team that is struggling to defend the pass and just released arguably its best cornerback could use the services of a cornerback with the skill level of Lattimore.However, the Jets might be interested in Leonard Fournette, would would essentially guarantee Lattimore to drop to the eighth pick and make him a Carolina Panther.And if he is picked in the top 10, he knows exactly who to thank.“At Ohio State, the prepare you the best, I feel like,” Lattimore said. “We perform in college, and then we perform in the league. Me, Gareon … all eight players in the draft just trying to continue that.”The combine concludes on Monday, and the 2017 NFL Draft kicks off on April 27 in Philadelphia. read more

Mourinho believes Fred can become better

first_imgJose Mourinho has given a hint that new signing Fred can step up his game at Manchester United by improving off the ball.The former Shakhtar Donetsk star man opened his account in a United shirt by scoring the first goal against Wolves.Unfortunately, the goal was canceled out by a resurgent Wolves side in the second half amid a poor United display in Old Trafford.However, Mourinho has lambasted the performance of his team and went further to suggest Fred can develop some aspects of his game.Jose Mourinho, Lionel MessiMourinho: “Lionel Messi made me a better coach” Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Jose Mourinho believes the experience of going up against Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi at Real Madrid made him a greater coach.Mourinho made a point of singling out his quality when United have the ball: “Yes, step by step. “Especially when the team has the ball, of course, he has quality.“I think we don’t deserve more than the draw and I think Wolves deserved to leave the pitch with that result as compensation for the hard work they put in,” he said.“We were not intense enough in our defensive work. We let them play; we didn’t press intensely.“We gave them too much time to be comfortable when they had the ball, and we were not creative or dynamic enough in the last third, with many players not sharp and not with that fire you need in the last third to beat an organized block of seven players.”last_img read more

Protesters Take to the Streets After Davis is Confirmed as Baltos Police

first_imgProtesters took to the streets on Oct. 19 after members of the Baltimore City Council voted to confirm Police Chief Kevin Davis as the head of the city’s police department.Protester Mecca Verdell cries as she chants during a demonstration, Monday, Oct. 19, 2015, in Baltimore. Protesters marched after the City Council confirmed Kevin Davis as the city’s permanent police commissioner. The council’s vote came five days after a committee voted in favor of hiring Davis and demonstrators held a sit-in to demand meetings with Davis and Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake. (AP Photo/Patrick Semansky)Davis won the vote 12-2 with City Councilman Carl Stokes, who is running for mayor, and Councilman Nick J. Mosby, who is rumored to be considering a run, voting no. Davis was a former deputy under Anthony W. Batts who was fired from the position earlier this year.“We need stability in the Police Department,” said Brandon Scott, city councilman, during the hearing. “We cannot have a temporary captain of the ship with all the violence in the city and the [Freddie Gray] trials coming up. … I have confidence that the commissioner will do a better job of working with everyone to get the crime rate down.” Following protests last week, Bernard C. “Jack” Young, council president ordered the balcony overlooking the chamber closed citing safety concerns. Many of the people who had come to witness the proceedings were unable to get in. About 20 minutes into the meeting, many protesters spilled out of the meeting, chanting things like “No justice, no peace, no racist police!”The group of about 40, marched from City Hall to the Inner Harbor – often walking directly in the streets and stopping traffic. They stopped at McKeldin Square and eventually headed back to City Hall, where police had set up barricades.Organizers told the group to follow police orders and avoid getting arrested. The group had dispersed by around 6:30 p.m.Activist Kwame Rose said that Davis went back on his word after a meeting that was held Oct. 18 involving several activists and Davis.Protesters block traffic, Monday, Oct. 19, 2015, in Baltimore, after the City Council confirmed Kevin Davis as the city’s permanent police commissioner. The council’s vote came five days after a committee voted in favor of hiring Davis and demonstrators held a sit-in to demand meetings with Davis and Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake. (AP Photo/Patrick Semansky)“Last night the Commissioner met with four young activists including myself and he agreed to the 19 rules of engagement. We went and we reworked every word of those 19 rules of engagement and even added a 20th rule of engagement which was that Baltimore City Police would designate one community liaison from the police department to coordinate with the protesters so that our First Amendment rights would be respected.” “Today he had until 12 p.m. to adhere to that and make a public statement and we agreed. We left that meeting with an agreement that that would happen and that did not happen. The Commissioner has continued to show that he is not interested in the respect of black young people in this city who care about their lives and their first amendment rights.”Baltimore mayoral candidate Calvin Young was inside the City Council meeting. He was in the overflow room officials had set up since the balcony was closed. People inside the overflow room could watch the proceedings on a monitor.“The vote came up and it was passed. After it was passed that’s when the demonstrators – those that were in the overflow room where I was – they all proceeded to get up and go towards the chambers. Also, from the screen we could see that demonstrations had begun in the chambers. I got up, the group that I was with, and we started paying attention and they had actually closed the doors to the chambers so those who were in the overflow room from what I could see did not make it into the actual chambers. Eventually everybody was escorted out and they started marching.”Damon Mathews-Bey, a Baltimore City employee who said he had come to the meeting because he was concerned about an issue unrelated to Davis’ confirmation, said he was upset that he wasn’t let into the meeting.“I was disturbed, very disturbed, because it’s supposed to be open to all the citizens in Baltimore and I’m a tax paying citizen also a worker for the city of Baltimore. I felt a little let down.”Following the vote, Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake swore Davis in as new commissioner at a community meeting. “We have to fight violent crime in a new and different way,” Davis told reporters. “It’s going to take our best efforts and building relationships with the community.” Davis’s five year, $200,000 annual salary, contract will face another vote on Wednesday in the form of the Board Estimates. The Board of Estimates is in charge of spending for the city and is controlled by Rawlings-Blake.last_img read more
