Ex-Spurs boss Sherwood makes ill-timed joke about Lloris horror arm injury

first_imgTIM SHERWOOD wasted little time turning the knife on Hugo Lloris by making a joke about his horror arm injury while he was being treated in hospital.Lloris suffered a dislocated elbow after falling heavily on his left arm just 129 seconds into Tottenham’s game against Brighton.4 Hugo Lloris was left screaming in agony after suffering a horrific dislocated elbow in the defeat at BrightonCredit: ReutersThe 32-year-old was left screaming in agony and needed morphine to help cope with the pain following the shocking incident early in the 3-0 defeat at the Amex Stadium.The harrowing scenes led to fears over the long-term health of the World Cup winner, with Manchester United keeper David De Gea quick to send his best wishes minutes after it happened.But former Spurs boss Sherwood, who managed Lloris during his time in charge of the North London club, was less sympathetic.The 50-year-old was working as a pundit at the game for the Premier League channel alongside Michael Owen – and minutes after full-time he was making a joke of the incident.The pair were analysing the mistake from Lloris in the seconds leading up to the freak accident, which had gifted Brighton an early lead.Sherwood said: “Listen, Hugo would hold his arms up if he could hold both up and say that, ‘that’s a mistake’.”The attempted pun was met with a blank response by fellow pundit Owen and experienced presenter Manish Bhasin in the studio.4 Tim Sherwood joked about Lloris not being able to hold both his hands up to a mistakeCredit: Twitter-EssayjamesAdvanced levels of shithousery from Tim Sherwood.

Edwards has Tivoli ticking again

first_imgCoach Omar Edwards has been guiding his charges at Tivoli Gardens FC in the right direction with the team moving up the ladder in the Red Stripe Premier League (RSPL) this season.Tivoli are currently in second position on 29 points, the same as the University of the West Indies. However, Tivoli enjoy a better goal difference behind leaders Montego Bay United on 31 points after 15 games in the preliminary stage.The West Kingston outfit are rolling on a five game win streak after scoring a 1-0 victory against struggling Waterhouse last Sunday.Edwards spent 10 years as assistant coach at Boys’ Town then moved over to neighbouring Tivoli last summer and is doing a great job as the new boss.Tivoli finished in mid-pack in the RSPL last season but are now a different outfit under Edwards’ guidance.”This season is totally different. When I came in the first thing was to get the players to understand and adhere to the rules and regulations of the club,” Edwards told The Gleaner.”We had former national and international player Jermaine Johnson in the squad, and we got him to understand his role and be better disciplined in his approach to the game,” the 32-year-old coach added.”The coaching staff has developed a code on how to play and that has made life easier. We have fixed both aspects of the game in defending and attacking as a team,” Edwards explained about his team’s impressive form in the nation’s elite league.”I am not totally new to the Premier League, but it’s my first time hired as a head coach. My ambition is to go all the way in winning the championship at Tivoli,” he added.With regards to support from the management team, Edwards praised their effort.”The management is totally behind the team. I am extremely pleased with the management team. The players’ salaries are not the best, but they are working on improving that aspect,” Edwards divulged.In 15 RSPL games this season, Tivoli’s record shows nine wins, two draws and four losses. They scored a league high 23 times and conceded 12 goals.Tivoli will next play 10th- place Harbour View on Sunday at the Edwards Seaga Complex in West Kingston.last_img read more

First Lady praises efforts to support autism awareness, fundraising

first_img— over 0,000 raised for new Step by Step schoolFirst Lady, Sandra Granger on Friday encouraged donors and well-wishers of the Step by Step Foundation to continue to support the initiatives to build a new school for children affected by Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) even as $685,000 has been raised during activities held to mark Autism Month.The First Lady made this appeal in her address at the launch of the building fund for the new Step by Step School, held at the Guyana Marriott Hotel.She recalled that when she was invited to become patron of the Foundation, she agreed without hesitation. She said she is extremely pleased at the support received from individuals and donors alike at the first major awareness and fundraising effort the ‘Light it up blue’ Autism Awareness Walk on April 2, World Autism Awareness Day.“When we first started our first exercise for autism awareness …I was struck by the fact that there were not only people there, companies were involved, but also some of the kids were there and I think it brought home to some of us who did not have dealings with children with special needs, particularly ASD, that they are people like us,” the First Lady said.She announced that the ‘Light it up blue walk’ alone netted $383,000 in proceeds.“I think it’s our first little step towards the foundation for the school and I am hoping that through corporate and private donations, large or small we will be able to commence the building of the school,” she said.Mrs Granger also said she is looking forward to more donations and further collaboration between the Ministry of Education and the school, noting particularly that linkages with the ministry will lead to earlier diagnoses and treatment for children affected by ASD.In giving a brief update on the Foundation’s progress, Dr Suraiya Ismail, Chair of the Executive Committee said the new school has a projected cost of $120M. The Foundation hopes to be able to accommodate 50-60 children, to provide training facilities for parents and training opportunities for Education Ministry teachers, among other plans.The Foundation has grown from five children to seventeen and plans are in train to enrol two more in September. It also now boasts seven tutors and the Ministry of Education has committed to providing teachers as needed.“Our growth was achieved through the generosity of many, many donors, from the private sector and from individuals too many to name,” Dr. Ismail said, adding that they are “extremely fortunate to have the patronage of the First Lady”.Meanwhile, in his address, Managing Director of Republic Bank said Richard Sammy,, “It is my pleasure to acknowledge the widespread enthusiasm and support for this cause.”He noted that a number of companies donated their products, purchased t-shirts and their staff members and other persons showed up, purchased t-shirts and participated in the ‘Light it up blue’ walk. Today, many individuals also made direct cash donations and, all combined, the efforts netted the sum of $685, 000.Caption: First Lady, Sandra Granger (centre) and Richard Sammy, Managing Director pay keen attention to Dr. Suraiya Ismail, Chair of the Step by Step Foundation as she makes a point, during a brief interaction before the start of the reception.last_img read more

Private sector to block parking meter project

first_img“All options on the table” – GCCI PresidentImplementation of the much panned parking meter project is imminent, but the private sector and civil society have indicated they would employ measures to resist the initiative.GCCI President Deodat IndarThis was on Sunday confirmed by recently elected President of the Georgetown Chamber of Commerce and Industry (GCCI), Deodat Indar, who told Guyana Times there must be in-depth analysis before such a project could be accepted.“We are saying that the contract of this parking meter was not awarded properly. There were no studies done, no impact assessments…the entire thing should be wiped clean, and go back to the drawing board and make sure that they do proper analysis,” Indar observed.His comments follow the action of the Mayor and Councillors of the City of Georgetown (M&CC) last week, voting to adopt the amended by-laws for the controversial parking meter project, thereby signalling that Guyanese will soon have to contend with paid parking once again.In its previous incarnation, the project was the subject of multiple court actions, including a case brought by the New Building Society (NBS) Limited and another by a private citizen against the legality of City Hall’s multiple-decade contract with Mexican company Smart City Solutions (SCS).Guyana Times on Sunday questioned the GCCI President on possible legal action that could be taken to prevent the initiative from returning, and Indar stressed: “All options are on the table.” He, however, cautioned that the private sector would first have to assess the amended by-laws before measures in regard to blocking could be initiated.“We are against the parking meters, and we will be working with others, including the Movement Against Parking Meters (MAPM) and other civil society groups to mount resistance towards the implementation of parking meters,” he noted.Guyana Times understands that operatives within the private sector will be meeting this week to determine their options and craft plans for advocacy against parking meters.When City Councillors had voted on the measure, Mayor Patricia Chase-Green had restricted them from discussing the contract and concessionaire. People’s Progressive Party (PPP) Councillor Bishram Kuppen had argued that since the by-laws are linked to the contract with Smart City Solutions, the council was attempting to move forward with a contract the legality of which was still under question.Kuppen told all the councillors present that if they support the amended by-laws, they in essence were forcing the citizenry of Georgetown to accept an illegal 40-year contract.Additionally, Councillor Malcolm Ferreira had called for the decision to be put on hold until all court issues regarding the controversial project had been addressed.People’s National Congress Councillors Akeem Peter, Winston Harding, Yvonne Ferguson, Welton Clarke, Oscar Clarke, Noelle Chow-Chee, Heston Bostwick, James Samuels, Trichria Richards, Lyndon Hilliman, Ivelaw Henry and Mayor Chase-Green, along with Team Benschop’s Jameel Rasul, voted to adopt the By-laws.Councillors Kuppen and Sharma voted against, and Ferreira and the PNC’s Carlyle Goring abstained.Meanwhile, former Deputy Mayors Lionel Jaikaran and Sherod Duncan – both of the Alliance For Change (AFC) — refused to participate in the process.Following a 14-day public display, the adopted by-laws will be forwarded to Communities Minister Ronald Bulkan for his approval; and if given, the by-laws would be gazetted.Under the new agreement, persons will be paying $150 per hour, and $800 for eight hours of parking in the city. Residents of the city would, however, be issued with a restricted residential pass for free parking from 17:00h-19:00h Monday to Friday, while parking will be free on Saturdays.When the project was first implemented in 2017, it attracted sustained protests for several weeks, and was eventually suspended by the Communities Minister.While it is expected that the Private Sector will receive support for their position on the Parking Meters Project, it is being argued that it is worrying the same type of support was not given to thousands of protesting sugar workers who were thrown on the breadline after Government’s decision to close three estates and dismiss over 5000 sugar workers.One public commentator, in an invited comment, said that it was unfortunate that there were a few isolated groups championing the cause of the sugar workers from the business and Private Sector Commission (PSC) while countless others, who were not directly affected by the move to shut down the industry, stood and watched from the sidelines.“Now that everybody knows that their business will be negatively affected if City Hall reintroduces the project, every man is on board to lobby and fight to resist the Project. Our sugar workers deserved better. The parking meters project and our collective response should be an eye opener for many people,” the commentator said.last_img read more

Weekend rain pushes June numbers back on track

first_imgPresident Ian Tostenson says Stats Canada shows sales in March jumped six per cent over the same month last year, even though nationally they inched up only point two per cent between February and March, with only five provinces registering any increase at all.“We’re seeing a lot of tourism increases in Vancouver and Vancouver Island, which is helping immensely, coupled with good weather,” Tostenson said.“The weather has just been incredible.”That incredible beverage drinking weather included Fort St. John’s, with the airport station posting double digit highs on six different days –including 13.3 C on March 13….and only five below zero highs, with the coldest being -7.7 C on the third.Advertisement The average high for the month was 4.8 C, nearly 10 degrees warmer than the March average of -4.6 C. Although still well removed from the local airport weather office record amount of 80.3 millimeters set on June 27 1965, this is the 61st anniversary of one of the largest one-day precipitation totals in this area.It was on this day in 1954 that the station posted 55.6 millimeters of rain, just 10 millimeters less than Environment Canada’s official average amount for the full month of June.Nothing like that amount is anticipated today, but the airport station, with 20 millimeters last Friday the main reason, is now back on pace to equal the monthly average of 65.6 mm.- Advertisement -It recorded 33.2 millimeters through the first half of the month ending a midnight this morning, and is now also ahead of last year’s pace.The 2014 total for the first 15 days of June was only 23.4 mm, and the station finished the month with a total well below the monthly norm at 37.2 mm.There is now only one week left in what has been for many in BC a mild spring, and among the beneficiaries has been the BC Restaurant and Food Services Association.Advertisementlast_img read more

Messi, Ronaldo World Cup exits signal changing of the guard

first_imgThat took his goal tally for the tournament to three — two behind England talisman Harry Kane and one behind Belgium’s Romelu Lukaku.Messi and Ronaldo, captain of the Portugal side beaten 2-1 by Uruguay, also on Saturday, had been on a quarter-final collision course but the closest they will now come to each other in Russia is the airport departure lounge.While they have set goal records tumbling both in Europe and Spain year after year, amazingly neither has ever been able to find the net in a World Cup knockout match in a combined 14 games.For all Messi’s brilliance at club level with Barcelona, it appears the 2014 final defeat to Germany is the closest he will ever come to winning the World Cup.Real Madrid forward Ronaldo, a European champion with Portugal two years ago, will be 37 by the time the next global showpiece rolls around — meaning it is unlikely he will improve on a run to the semi-finals in 2006.– Mbappe leads the charge –With the exits of the pair, both five-time world players of the year, confirmed on the same day, the stage is clear for a handful of young, hungry pretenders to seize the spotlight.France forward Kylian Mbappe celebrates his second goal against Argentina © AFP / Luis AcostaLeading the charge is the 19-year-old Mbappe, who achieved a feat no player had accomplished in 60 years, becoming the first teenager to score twice in a World Cup match since a 17-year-old Pele in 1958.“I’m very happy, and it’s flattering to be compared to a great player like Pele,” said Mbappe, born a few months after France won the 1998 World Cup.“But he’s in another category. Still, it’s great to join the list of players that have achieved such feats.”The Paris Saint-Germain striker, who as a child had posters of Ronaldo plastered across his bedroom wall, has three goals in three starts in Russia.He finds himself trailing England striker Kane in the race for the Golden Boot, but his terrorising of the Argentina defence underlined his growing menace. He’s not so much as arriving as arrived.After four straight seasons with 20 or more goals in the Premier League, Kane is now demonstrating his ability on the biggest stage of all, leading England’s attack and captaining the side.England forward Harry Kane is leading the race for the World Cup’s Golden Boot © AFP / Martin BERNETTIHe struck twice in an opening win over Tunisia before bagging a hat-trick in his next outing and is the key figure for a youthful England side.“It’s going well, there’s still a long way to go, the most important thing is winning games,” said the 24-year-old Tottenham star.Colombia midfielder Carlos Sanchez described Kane as an “emblematic player” ahead of their meeting with England in the last 16 on Tuesday.Belgium’s Romelu Lukaku is also enjoying a breakout World Cup campaign, answering his critics in resounding style after a disappointing campaign in Brazil four years ago.The 25-year-old scored twice in successive matches in Group G, the first player from any nation to do so at the tournament since Diego Maradona in 1986.He is Belgium’s record scorer with 40 goals in 71 appearances and will be central to their hopes as Roberto Martinez attempts to finally get the best out of a golden generation.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Lionel Messi (left) and Cristiano Ronaldo are heading home from the World Cup in Russia © AFP / Roman KRUCHININ, Adrian DENNISMOSCOW, Russian Federation, Jul 1 – Step aside Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo… there is a new group of kids on the block ready to seize the limelight and form the next generation of global megastars.French teenager Kylian Mbappe announced himself in dramatic fashion on Saturday, overshadowing Messi as France beat Argentina 4-3 in the World Cup last 16.last_img read more

Pepe’s 13th goal of the campaign drew him level in the Ligue 1 scoring charts with PSG’s Kylian Mbappe.Caen got a late consolation five minutes into time added on from their Chad striker Casimir Ninga.Lille finished a man down with Zeki Celik’s foul on Ninga when the Caen striker was faced with an open goal with seven minutes of regulation time remaining.Lille took to the pitch in Normandy without France under-21 international left-back Fode Ballo-Toure, who signed for Thierry Henry’s strugglers Monaco on Thursday.The game was moved forward 24 hours as local authorities prepare for the ninth weekend of the ‘yellow vest’ movement protests.Lille are now on 37 points, 10 adrift of champions PSG who are at Amiens on Saturday, hoping to bounce back after their shock League Cup loss to Guingamp in midweek.Also dumped out of the League Cup this week were Lyon, who later Friday were held 1-1 at home by Reims.Pablo Chavarria put the visitors into the lead in the first half, with Bertrand Traore wrongfooting Reims keeper Edouard Mendy on 70 minutes to level.Lyon remain in third, four points behind Lille, with a game in hand.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more
