“I am very happy for the place where I had to debut” What offer came first?First came the offer from Kazakhstan. It was a lot of money, but I don’t think it’s time to go to that kind of leagues. I don’t see it as important as Ekstraklasa. I do not tell you that with 32 years I will not look at him with good eyes, but I think I can still compete at a high level, try to play in Europe or win titles with Lech Poznan. Tomorrow I’ll see.Doesn’t it look in the MLS either?Nor was the time because I want to continue playing in Europe. For me, playing the group stage of the Europa League or the Champions League would be great. I have signed three and a half years here and I hope to do so with Lech Poznan. Tomorrow I don’t know what will happen. I get another MLS offer and I decide to accept it. But now I don’t think of anything other than playing in Poznan and winning titles with Lech.Niezgoda did not think about it and did go to Portland Timbers.Yes, and look I was young. I am 27 years old and could have said: ‘Come on, I’m going there and that’s it.’ But the two offers were economically very similar and I preferred to continue in Europe. Niezgoda has decided to go to MLS but I think, being so young, it’s a wrong decision. Returning from MLS to Europe is complicated. He knows.They say that without Dani Ramírez the LKS is second meat.That is nonsense because with me they were also last. I think that a player alone could not make or remain first or prevent them from being last. We had defensive problems, in every game we scored a minimum, and it was very difficult to win like that. They have now been reinforced. I was watching them the other day against Legia and I saw them quite well in defense. They had few occasions in attack, but they have reinforced well. Antonio Dominguez is a great player; Let’s see if Pirulo starts to score goals and is full of confidence. I think they are a better team than they are demonstrating and the position they are in. I hope they get out of there as soon as possible.What do you think of the Spanish reinforcements of the LKS?Very good very good. Carlos Moros is an experienced center. He likes to send, he likes to lead the team and I think he is going to give him a lot of seniority and temper in defense, which is something that the team needed. Samu Corral is a good striker: strong with a very good shot. He is used to playing in Segunda B in Spain, which is a fucking league, and I think that the moment he starts to see the door he will give the team a lot. Was it sad to leave?Both my wife and I were very sad to leave Lodz behind. It was a city to which we had adapted very well, we had it very controlled. I have had wonderful moments with the team. Ascend to Primera with a team for which nobody gave a hard was milk. But this opportunity has come to me and I have not let it escape. The soccer player’s career is very short. I am planning to go see them play soon, it is a team I hope to play next year at Ekstraklasa. I hope they are saved.The farewell was very emotional.The farewell was amazing. I expected to receive bad comments from people. The typical, manger and stuff. But they have understood that I am going to a better team and that I don’t just do it for money. If I had gone for money I would have gone to Kazakhstan, where they gave me more than double what I will charge in Poznan. I have come here because I think it is a step forward in my career and that I will compete at a higher level. But the farewell has been incredible. They have all behaved very well: the president, colleagues, fans … It has been wonderful. That’s why I want to go see them when I can. They deserve my love.The president even gave him a knife. Do you share hobby?No, as far as I know we don’t share hobby, I think he doesn’t like hunting. In fact I have never used a hunting knife, but he gave it to me and I have it at home as an ornament. Right now I am seeing it. It is a memory and I am very grateful because I did not expect it.LKS Lodz has one more fan then.Yes, it is also that we are not at the same level in the league. They fight for one thing; us for another. And we are not going to have to face. I no longer see them as rivals, so they will have my support in every game.Do you put a house in Poznan? And car?No, they don’t put me home. When you earn money they tell you to look for it yourself. When I was about to clear my wife came to Poznan by train and looked for an apartment. So I arrived directly from Lodz to the apartment. I am already in my new house installed. Nor do they put me in a car, but the club has an agreement with an automotive brand and I hope to have mine available in the next few days. In Lodz he used the tram to get around.In Lodz he had everything at hand and didn’t need a car at all, he didn’t even miss it. But in Poznan I am far from the stadium and far, far from the center. So I jump from the tram to the car out of necessity. I have been in Poland for three years and I already need it. Having it will improve my quality of life.Debuted marking with the subsidiary. How did you feel?Great. We played a mix between the subsidiary and the players who had been substitutes in the previous game of the first team. I, because I was sanctioned, could not enter the call, I played with them. I saw it well, so I could take minutes and start playing with some of my new teammates. And look, I premiered with a goal. I think I played well, I felt comfortable and, besides, the shirt fits me like a fucking mother. I’m very happy to be here, I go crazy for playing Sunday.He will debut in Krakow, where LKS has not done badly this season.I’m looking forward to the match against Krakow. With the LKS I have won both games and I have very good feelings against them. In his stadium I gave an assist and at home I scored a goal. I am very happy for the place where I can debut. I do not know how the game will turn out, but it is a rival that I have been good this season.He will also be willing to play in Poznan.Imagine … The Lech has a stadium that is a pass. 40,000 people enter. Play there, be able to score, celebrate with people … I’m looking forward to it. The pity of the LKS is that they are building the stadium, they can only put about 6,000 people and it falls short. Here in Poznan, when it is full there will be 40,000. The difference is brutal. At least they have two or three years of work left to close it and from then on I am sure that they will grow very much. “When I learned that Lech loved me I didn’t want to hear anything else” Dani Ramírez Lech Poznan & nbsp; (Facebook) ‘); return false; “class =” item-multimedia “>Dani Ramírez, during his presentation with Lech Poznan.Lech Poznan (Facebook) Dani Ramírez Poznan is in luck. The most representative team in the city, the Lech, made official only a few days ago the signing of one of the highest quality footballers of the Ekstraklasa, Dani Ramírez (Leganés, 1992). The Spanish aroused the interest of Kazakhstan and the MLS, but “it was not the time to go to those leagues.” Hours before his debut against Krakow, Ramírez attends AS to review how his first days are going on in Poznan. “I’m crazy for the game to come,” he confesses.How about the first days in Poznan?Perfect. It shows that Lech is a very big club. A powerful club in the country. The deal with me since day one has been milk. The partners have also treated me great. When you arrive at a club where they don’t know who you are, it’s harder for you to adapt. But here you know who I am. I have faced them and it has been very good since the first day.Was it clear that he would leave the LKS?I did not plan to leave, although I did know that I could have offers in winter because I was playing well and having good numbers. I knew that if a very good offer came I could accept it, but I played the entire first part of the season thinking that I would play until the end in the LKS.Several clubs asked for you. Did you expect so much interest?I was a little overwhelmed because I didn’t expect so much interest. You never want to think about the possibility of changing airs but I did not expect that, when the time came, there would be so many interested teams. But it was easy. When I learned that Lech wanted me to replace Darko Jevtic, which meant it was going to be important, I didn’t want to hear anything else. I am very grateful to all the clubs, but Lech is one of the three most important teams in Poland and I could not let him escape.
Likewise, the official announcement by Naples to resume training on March 25 has been very surprising within the club, especially because the situation in Italy is much more problematic than in Spain. It must be remembered that the Neapolitan team is the rival of Barça in the Champions League and that the second round remains to be played at the Camp Nou, where Setién’s men start with a relative advantage by achieving a draw (1-1) on the way. In the club they are very clear that the health of the players is above all and they will not make the decision to restart the activity until the authorities end the house confinement and those responsible consider that a sufficient period of extension has elapsed to restart the activities. After the announcement by the President of the Government, Pedro Sánchez, that the confinement will last fifteen days more than initially planned, at Barça they also began to modify the road map, aware that the situation is still going to be long and that the time that the players will have to continue working alone and at home will be a minimum of one month. The concern revolves around physical preparation. Who more or less is aware that what footballers are doing during the time of confinement is totally insufficient, especially if we talk about the needs of an elite player, since it is doing general maintenance.In fact, the forecasts that physical trainers have is that they will need a minimum of two weeks to recover their pre-coronavirus crisis status, as announced by AS. Taking into account that the initial schedule that LaLiga is studying is to start in mid-May, the specialists are working under the plan to start training next Monday, April 27. From the club it is recognized that it would be the most optimistic scenario, because today everything is pending on the evolution of the pandemic, but physical trainers are obliged to go ahead in events to prevent there from being a relaxation or a lack of intensity in the players work.
Nilmar: Espanyol played 75 minutes with one less man, but Villarreal did not know how to take advantage of it. Special attention deserves the case of the Brazilian Nilmar, who scored two goals on the second day but only has 10 points after being penalized four times with a -2. Its price is around € 5,500,000, and it doesn’t stop going down. Raúl: The eternal Madrid captain was a starter in his team’s win against Xerez, but he did not stand out too much and only obtained 2 points. The “problem” is that he has only scored one goal so far and has 13 points. Considering that it’s worth a few € 5,000,000, we can expect a little more from him. Sergio Canales: The Cantabrian already marked the last day, although his team could not pass the tie. On this occasion, his double did serve for Racing Santander to take the victory at Sánchez Pizjuán. Two authentic works of art that allow you to achieve 18 points. Leo Messi: Leo, Leo, and more Leo. Ten goals in the last five games that allow him to be the player with the most points in Biwenger and repeat as MVP of the day. 19 points has been achieved this time after his last hat trick. From the Caves: He was not playing great games, but this day has become the true hero of his team with two great goals in a field in which it is always difficult to score as La Catedral is. His great performance allowed him to win Sporting and achieve 18 points this day.They can do moreForlán: Three goals and an assist in eight games are not excessively bad statistics, but the 21 points he has are. A very poor figure for a striker who has been a starter in all matches with Atlético de Madrid. Just -2 this day, but unexpected from a footballer with a price close to € 12,000,000 and that it should score better. No more adjectives to define Leo’s performances. Messi He gave a recital again, this time in Tenerife, and scored a hat trick that allows him to be the MVP for the second consecutive day. Of course, the Argentine was not alone, since he had the invaluable help in defensive tasks of a Victor Valdes who bolted on his goal, and Puyol, which was an impassable wall and even saw a door.Another win was the one that Málaga endorsed Atlético de Madrid 3-0. The Andalusian team was very confident in defense, with Jesus Gamez and Manu Torres As most outstanding men, the latter entering from the bench and scoring the second goal for his team. One of the matches of the day was the one that faced Getafe with Valencia. The Madrid team turned the result around to take the three points with a score of 3-1 thanks to the double of Manu del Moral and the both of Pedro León.Real Madrid prevailed over Xerez by the same score as Barça over Tenerife, although in this case playing at home. Cristiano Ronaldo He opened the account in the first minute and gave his team peace of mind making the second of the game. A huge Sergio Canales allowed Racing to surprise at home for Sevilla, who won 1-2 with two works of art from the youth team.Sporting de Gijón achieved the same result at the home of Athletic Club, and also with a clear protagonist: From the Caves. The man from Alicante scored both goals for his team in the second half to storm La Catedral. We only saw a bit in the victory of Mallorca in Pamplona, but it was a great goal that had the signature of a Chory castro who is our last member of the Ideal XI of the day 8.MVPs
Table Tennis Jamaica (TTJ) President Godfrey Lothian has made a call for greater support from corporate entities, following the country’s third-place finish in Division Three at the International Table Tennis Federation (ITTF) Perfect World Team Champion-ships in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, recently, which also saw the Jamaicans jumping from Division Five to their current status in three years.In 2014, in Japan, the Jamaica team of Michael Hyatt, Kane Watson, Simon Tomlinson and Chris Marsh swept all before them to take the Division Five crown.Starting out at Division Four this time around, the Jamaicans won all their four group matches, before moving on to the quarter-finals where they defeated the United Arab Emirates 3-0.In the semi-finals, the Jamaicans lost to Pakistan.TOO HOT FORPANAMAHowever, the Caribbean team was too much for Panama in the bronze-medal match, as they beat the Central Americans 3-0 to claim third spot and a place in Division Three for the next championship.”In three years, we have moved up two divisions. We have moved from fifth to fourth to third [division], and that is unprecedented. So things are happening in table tennis, and we should be rewarded with some strong support,” Lothian commented.”We see that we can have success in the sport. This [sport] is not just for Asian and European countries. Countries from Latin America and the Caribbean, in particular, Jamaica, can have success, but we need corporate Jamaica to see table tennis as a sport they can invest in.”They (corporate community) need to see it as a sport that can draw large support as it can be played any and everywhere. We also have a lot of new activities coming on board that we just want support for,” he continued.Lothian was also full of praise for the country’s representatives – Hyatt, Watson and Mark Phillips – who won the bronze at the championship, and noted that there were many more youngsters on the rise.”I am elated! This is great because success has been achieved, so we are overwhelmed,” beamed Lothian.”They (players) really did Jamaica proud. We have other youngsters coming up, so we have a face now of five, six players, so things are looking good for table tennis,” he added.
Opposition Leader and former President Bharrat Jagdeo has stated that Guyanese are at a lost as to where the country is heading in terms economic growth, adding that the coalition Government has failed to present a substantial economic policy.“I’m a politician and I tend to be partisan; I want the PPP (People’s Progressive Party) to get back in office and that’s my job, working towards that so maybe I don’t give them a fair chance of presenting what their economic policy is. But I’ve asked many people, who are supposed to be not partisan, not politicians and they are just as lost as I am about where the country is heading and a clear vision for taking it there cause it just doesn’t exists,” Jagdeo asserted.Opposition Leader and former President Bharrat Jagdeo addressing the gathering at the Guyana Manufacturing and Services Association annual dinnerHe was at the time delivering the feature address at the Guyana Manufacturing and Services Association (GMSA) Annual Dinner held at the Guyana Pegasus on Friday evening. According to the former President, the country’s growth rates for last year and this year are very anaemic.Jagdeo went on to say that even the projection growth some of the sectors like sugar, manufacturing and construction are unlikely to happen. However, he noted that while the forecasted 3.8 per cent growth in the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) can very well happen, it will be only because of the mining sector, more specifically gold. He added that every other sector in the country is declining.The Opposition Leader premised this argument on the country’s balance of payment data, which shows that earnings from gold exports have moved from US$469.8 million in 2014 to US$778 million in 2016 with a projection of nearly $800 million this year.At the same time, however, the other major sectors pushing the country’s economic are on the decline. Jagdeo noted that rice exports reduced from US$249 million to US$182 million from 2014 to 2016; sugar from US$88 million to US$67 million from 2014 to 2016; bauxite from US$124 million to US$100 million from 2014 to 2016 and timber declined from US$53 million to US$40 million from 2014 to 2016.“So these are the five major areas that are disaggregated… and four of the five have seen significant decline in exports in US dollars,” he posited. Turning his attention to imports, Jagdeo noted that only fuel imports in 2014 was recorded at US$573 million and fell to US$367 million in 2015 and then to US$327 million last year. However, this is projected to go back up to US$433 million in 2017.“The improvement in our balance of payment has relied on two things alone: the drop of fuel prices, we saved a couple of hundred million dollars, and gold price skyrocketed between 2014 and 2016 by a few hundred millions – everything else has deteriorated… On the export side, gold has gone up and on the import side, there is savings in fuel but both are volatile,” Jagdeo surmised.The former President pointed out that because a significant part of the earnings from gold are earned by large companies, it’s recorded in the exports but the bulk of the money does not flow back into the country.Moreover, the Opposition Leader noted that while there has been a growth in imports, persons have been reporting a reduction in the numbers of containers that being brought in. This growth, he added, is as a result of the increase valuations by the Guyana Revenue Authority (GRA).“So you have a reduction in the number of containers coming but it’s seen as a growth of imports because GRA bumps up the valuation. People bring in containers now are complaining that their containers are re-valued 30-40 per cent capriciously and so it creates the impression that more imports are taking place but in real sense, it’s a financial transaction. S people are concern,” he stated.Jagdeo noted that he painted a benign picture of the country’s balance of payment and even with that, there is so much pressure already on the exchange rate. “If you paint a picture of the balance of payment evolving on the basis of what we know anecdotally then it gets worst because the real sector can’t support what’s happening there,” he said.
More than a year following recommendations for appointments from the Judicial Service Commission (JSC) President David Granger on Wednesday swore in a Justice of Appeal along with four new Judges to serve in the chambers of the High Court.High Court Judge Rishi Persaud has been elevated to serve in the Court of Appeal while attorneys Simone Morris-Ramlall, Damone Younge, Sandil Kissoon and Gino Persaud have been appointed Puisne Judges.The Head of State speaking at the simple ceremony at State House reminded that the Judiciary is the guardian of the Constitution.The appointments, he said, were made in exercise of the powers conferred upon him as President by article 128-1 of the Constitution of Guyana which states that “the Judges, other than the Chancellor and the Chief Justice, shall be appointed by the President, acting in accordance with the advice of the Judicial Service Commission, and article 128-2 which states “the President, acting in accordance with the advice of the Judicial Service Commission, may appoint a person to act in the office of Justice of Appeal or Puisne Judge, as the case may require”.The new Judges have been appointed with effect July 17.According to President Granger, independence of the Judiciary is necessary to protect the rights of citizens and ensure that legal controversies are settled in a lawful manner.“It secures the rule of law and acts as a safeguard against tyranny and pressure. The Judiciary must be sustained if Guyana is to remain a law-based State,” he said, continuing that the Constitution of Guyana makes provision for allowing the independence of the Judiciary from the perils of Executive and Legislative encroachment.“The Executive arm of Government is committed to promoting, protecting and preserving judicial independence.In February 2016, the JSC had unanimously recommended that High Court Judges, Justices Rishi Persaud and Dawn Gregory be appointed to the Court of Appeal, and Attorneys Sandil Kissoon and Damone Younge be appointed Puisne Judges.
TRADERS IN the county reported a record shopping weekend as better value and the good weather combined to make it a mega-shopping weekend for Donegal!After a fortnight of snow and ice, traders were reporting huge trade throughout the county -with traffic chaos at times in Letterkenny and Donegal Town.The slide in the euro also meant more people stayed at home to shop this year – and with new weather warnings for later this week, many people were taking advantage of the thaw. Shopping fever replaced cabin fever – and temperatures of +10C…25 degrees higher than on some nights last week.In the new Dunnes in Letterkenny and in Tesco in the town, there was evidence of panic-buying as shoppers loaded trolleys with turkeys, brussel sprouts and booze.Predictions of the return of the Big Chill next week also had thousands of shoppers queuing to buy presents at many stores on Main Street and in the Retail Park.“Christmas shopping was delayed this year so we had expected to see an influx of customers to Letterkenny this weekend,” said Toni Forrester, boss of the Letterkenny Chamber of Commerce. “There is great value and top brands in Letterkenny this year and it was also great to see some shoppers from the North enjoying what Letterkenny has to offer.”RECORDS SMASHED IN DONEGAL WEEKEND CHRISTMAS SHOPPING FRENZY! was last modified: December 13th, 2010 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)
CELEBRITY wedding planning duo Ant and Dick are offering their services to gay couples hoping to ‘tie the knot’ in April this year when the first Civil partnerships in Donegal will take place.This week gay couples in the county hoping to have a Civil Partnership can register for their ceremony.And Ireland’s only Civil Partnership experts say they are on hand to help Donegal couples through the planning process. They are also on the look out for couples planning their big day for the first day in April as they have suppliers on board offering their services for free! Ant said today: “The world’s Press will be watching how Ireland handles the first Civil Partnerships and it could even influence other countries such as America in their decision to allow gay couples the same privilege.“This really is the biggest thing to happen in Ireland since Divorce and for Ireland to have come so far so quickly since decriminalisation really is fantastic.”Ant and Dick are the only Civil Partnership experts based in Ireland – and say they’ve already had enquiries from Donegal!Said Dick: “With a thorough understanding of the industry we are able to ensure that gay couples in Donegal not only find suppliers happy to work with them but they will also negotiate on behalf of couples to ensure the right and fair price is being paid and is within the couples budget.” The national average spend of any wedding is approx €20k and gay unions will be roughly the same, he said.But he warned: “Businesses should not get carried away with it all, there will be a great interest at the beginning and the initial influx of couples will most likely be older couples who have been together many years and want to cement their relationship legally for next of kin and financial reasons.“Then the figures will drop, it will be at least three years before a trend can begin to appear and it could take up to ten years for the ‘normalisation’ to really take hold.“Until now gay men and women pretty much accepted that getting married wasn’t an option when they came to terms with being gay, so now that they can enjoy a Civil Partnership it may take some time for that option to sink in and for it to become a normal expectation for gay couples.”The gay wedding planners are at www.antanddick.com. endsGAY DONEGAL WEDDINGS BEING PLANNED BY CELEBRITY DUO was last modified: January 5th, 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)
THE BROTHERS behind a bakery which went bust have failed to save the company.A liquidator was today appointed to O’Donnell’s bakery in Laghey.It comes following a creditors meeting involving the Directors of the company earlier. The Liquidator Patrick McDermott, from Letterkenny will now try and sell the companies assets. He will also be going to attempt to sell the good will and customer base of the company with the Highland Bakery interested.The Letterkenny Bakery has already offered some of the 15 O’Donnell’s workers positions.Mr. McDermott says he is currently compiling figures to speak to possible buyers or partiesHe says he will be trying over the next few days to sell the ‘good will’ of the company if possible. The 15 existing workers will be entitled to redundancy from the company through the liquidation process and any arrears of pay will be covered by the state insolvency fund.The brothers behind the company, Charlie and Eamonn O’Donnell, ceased trading at their Laghey-based business on Christmas Eve.Highland Bakery has been using the brand since while directors of O’Donnells called the luiquidator’s meeting.A spokesman for the O’Donnells said last week “There are several interested parties and our main priority is to safeguard jobs.”The company was run by brothers Charlie and Eamonn O’Donnell – and was founded by their father and uncles in Ballyshannon in 1969. Last year the company won a coveted Great taste award in Britain.Today a friend said: “Charlie and Eamonn are devastated. They are decent lads and have tried their best for the 15 workers at the bakery.”LIQUIDATOR APPOINTED TO LAGHEY BAKERY was last modified: January 17th, 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)
The Independent Broadcasters of Ireland has called for the Government’s planned new public broadcasting charge, to replace the TV licence fee, to also fund independent radio stations.It has also demanded sufficient funding from the charge to be made available for RTÉ Radio 1 to allow it operate as a commercial-free full public service broadcaster.The group also wants the regulator, the Broadcasting Authority, to be sufficiently funded from the charge. “Every household has at least one radio and nearly every person has the ability to listen to radio on their mobile phone, laptop, computer, iPad, and so on,” said IBI chairman Scott Williams.“Given the number of radio devices in each home, we believe that the public broadcasting charge (PBC) set out in the Programme for Government and which will be levied on all households, must be used to strengthen and develop all forms of broadcasting in Ireland”.“The TV licence fee has provided an unfair competitive advantage to RTÉ. With more than 1,500 people employed in the sector independent broadcasters make a significant economic, social and cultural contribution to the Irish economy.“The replacement of the licence fee with a new PBC provides a unique opportunity to the Minister for Communications to create a more competitive broadcasting landscape RADIO STATIONS SEEKING CASH INJECTION FROM TAXPAYER was last modified: April 6th, 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)
