Quique Setién shows her most caring side

first_imgThe coronavirus has postponed the book festival and with it, the departure of the traditional volume of Sports Solidarity Stories, a charity that sports journalists have published for 16 consecutive years sponsored by a sports figure, this year it was Quique Setién’s turn, in order to deliver all of the proceeds each year to a charity.This year the book was special for all who make it, because It is a book of photographs freely loaned to honor Fernando Zueras, AS photographer, and Carlos Pérez de Rozas, who died last year. Unfortunately, recently we were also left by the photographers Francesc Casals and Miguel Moreno, who were also honored in this edition whose benefits will go to the Pallapupes collective, the solidarity clowns who go to the pediatric plants of hospitals to cheer children boarding schools. Quique Setién agreed to the request of the group of journalists to pose with a clown nose, as Guardiola did in his day in favor of Clowns without Borders, and write the prologue of the work in which he says that “From now on, I assume the responsibility of my public position as a speaker to avoid the tension and tensions that surround us every day and to be a little happier. And for that we need there not to be a single sad clown. Those children who will take our place will remember the rest of their lives each of your smiles. And there is no greater reason or stimulus than a child’s smile to leave a better future. “Setien explains that “Soccer was everything until the news about the coronavirus pandemic suddenly ended with doubts and reality confined us at home somewhat distressed (…) This wonderful invitation to be part of this consolidated solidarity project comes at the right time, first because it has stirred my consciousness from the moment I started reading all the prologues that have gone before me and also because it reminds us of who we really are and the short film. time that we are going to be around here. ”last_img read more

Tony Becca | A figment of Cameron’s imagination

first_imgWhich is the best cricket team in the world? Is it Pakistan, India, Australia, England, or South Africa, as the ICC rankings would suggest, or is it one of New Zealand, Sri Lanka, the West Indies, Bangladesh, or Zimbabwe? To me, the number-one team should be Australia. They have been the best for a number of years, and although one must be good in any condition anywhere, and not only at home, and even though they lost recently to Sri Lanka on Sri Lanka’s turning pitches, they must be the best. Frankly, I do not see Pakistan as the number-one team, as the ranking shows, and definitely not over Australia, India, or England. The team that I cannot see at number one or occupying that position in the near future, however, is the West Indies. Unlike Dave Cameron, the under-pressure president of the West Indies Cricket Board, I am not blinkered. I simply cannot see the West Indies in the picture, or anywhere near to it, not now anyway. I am not the president of the board, I am not a member of the board, and I am not the public relations officer for the board. I need not put a “spin” on things to make things look good or to suit anyone. Cameron said recently at a meeting in Dominica: “We need to ask ourselves as the board, and as our public, what is it that the public wants from the West Indies Cricket Board?” “The West Indies Cricket Board has just delivered three titles. There is no other cricket board in the world that has three titles to its name,” continued Cameron as he went on to mention improved finances, the Professional Cricket League, and the recent performance of one like all-rounder Roston Chase against India. He added: “We need to ask the public and our stakeholders to define for us what success looks like, and I think that once we agree what success looks like, I think it is easy to answer that question.” I wish I was there. I would have asked him this question: What is the business of the West Indies Cricket Board? If he were to answer “cricket”, I would ask him, for a start: When last have the West Indies beaten a top-ranking team whether at home or abroad? When last have the West Indies been ranked above number eight in the world in Test cricket and in one day cricket? When last did someone perform as good as Chase? When last have we got to the semi-final of the World Cup? When last have the West Indies players enjoyed a place of some degree of satisfaction in the rankings – Test and One-day? The people, by attendance, may prefer T20 cricket, its many towering sixes, and its staged entertainment of flashing lights, music, and dancers, but I don’t believe that they pay much attention to its figures, except who is the biggest hitter in T20 cricket. T20 players, except for the batsmen, are basically nameless. The people do not know, or they do care not to know, who is the best bowler, or fielder, or catcher. But for a very few, the other players simply make up the numbers. Although finances are important, and very important at that, cricket is not a financial business. Cricket is cricket, and those in charge of cricket must be, or should be, focused on the business of cricket. In other words, if the West Indies are playing cricket, as important as money is, it’s no use boasting of a little money in the bank while the team is coming last or thereabouts on the cricket field, and is also the beating stick, or the laughing stock, of every one, certainly of Australia, India, England, South Africa, Pakistan, and New Zealand. And although the West Indies were the best and the most popular team in the world once upon a time, they are no longer so, neither do they possess the best batsman, bowler, wicketkeeper or captain as they did many times in the past. Based on the crowds, the money in the bank did not come from playing cricket, or from playing cricket well. It must have been the West Indies’ share from a pool of funds from the ICC and, therefore, nothing really to shout about. What Cameron needs to do is to ask the public, what, in cricket, is success. The people would answer him this way: Success in cricket is not so much about money but more about performance on the field; good performance, individually and collectively. The people, from all around the world may also tell him that West Indies cricket cannot be a success when it has been occupying the number-eight spot or thereabouts out of 10 teams in anything but T20 cricket for as long as 20 years or so. That would be the people’s answer, and as long as cricket remains the way it is, as long as Test cricket continues to be the way in which all cricket, and cricketers, are judged, that’s the way it will always be seen. The West Indies are fantastic, and they are superb in the flashy T20 form of the game, which many now see as the West Indian way of playing the game. In the one-day format, however, they are embarrassing, and based on their performances, they are hardly any better in the sophisticated play of Test matches, the format which was once considered made for the West Indies. But it may even be worse if the board continues to hire and to fire people like Phil Simmons and to change its cricket staff so often for differences of opinion, while clinging to one like Richard Pybus, its obviously “powerful” director of cricket. And although it may turn out to be a good move in the end, like the selection of Fidel Edwards some years ago, the “blind” selection, in this day and age of so much first-class cricket, of a man based on his performance in the nets, is like grabbing at straws.

MEN WHO WRECKED AN GRIANAN FORT GET SUSPENDED JAIL SENTENCES

first_imgTwo young men who were part of a gang who went on the rampage at one of Ireland’s most historic sites have been jailed for a month each.Raymond McCormick, 20, and William Sweeney, 20, appeared before Buncrana District Court today.The men had been remanded in custody since the last sitting of Letterkenny District Court on Monday last. Garda Eddie Doherty recounted how the two accused were part of a group of 40 people who had gone on a rampage of destruction at An Grianan Fort in Burt.He revealed how a drink-fuelled party took place at the ancient fort last weekend.When he arrived he found a scene of carnage in which revelers had defecated in a holy well and on walkways.William Sweeney leaves the court.Beer cans and even women’s underwear was found strewn on the inside of the courts and parts of the fort had even been dismantled by the revelers.Tourists visiting the ancient site from as far away as America and China had witnessed the scenes and had also been verbally abused.The two accused had been charged with causing criminal damage by throwing cans and also some ancient stones fro the fort.Solicitor for the two accused, Patsy Gallagher, said it was “outrageous” that stonemasons from Leitrim were transported to the site at a cost of €900.“This is a personal view but I think it is outrageous that a Government Department take people from Leitrim to fix a wall.Maymond McCormick leaves the court. PIcs copyright Donegal Daily“There are members of the Office of Public Works in Letterkenny who could have done this.“I think this was an extra expense for these people to come all the way for Leitrim,” he said.However, Judge Paul Kelly said the court was not talking about fixing a wall!“This is a 3,000 national artifact. These people were from the National Monuments District and I’m actually surprised the is as low as it is and I’m surprised they will be able to repair it at all,” he said.Mr Gallagher added that he just could not understand that there were not people locally who could fix the monument.Garda Inspector Michael Harrison he could not understand why the monument was damaged in the first place.Mr Gallagher stressed that his client were two of 40 people and they were not the main culprits.Judge Kelly replied “Nobody forced them to come here and nobody forced to tank themselves up with drink.”Desecration: The damage done at An Grianan FortSolicitor Gallagher said he was seeking bail to allow the men to pay the €900 costs.Sweeney had an address at Ballybane, Creggan, Derry and McCormick had an address at Oaklands Park, Creggan, Derry.Garda Supt Harrison said he was objecting to the men’s release as they lived across the border.“Their addresses are in Derry City. They have no residence here. If they got bail we would never see them again or the €900.“The OPW have been extremely reasonably in their figures and I would ask they be remanded in custody until the money is paid,” he said.Judge Kelly replied that the accused were no getting out until the money was paid.After the matter was adjourned, solicitor Patsy Gallagher said the money was in court to pay the OPW.He said that having spent almost a week in prison both men were trembling with fear at the thought of going back behind bars.“They have never seen inside a Garda station before this, nevermind a prison cell for a week,” said Mr Gallagher.He pleaded with Judge Kelly not to send them back to prison saying it was very unlikely they would appear in court again.Judge Kelly “They are very fortunate to have family willing to stand by them and bail them out. They may be able to prevail upon their comrades, the other people involved, to pay their part.“What they did on this day and specially the treatment of visitors was absolutely appalling – intimidating and harassing an American woman and Chinese family. It will not be tolerated,” said Judge Kelly.He sentenced both men to one month in prison but suspended the sentence for 12 months.“If you appear before me again in that time this sentence will be activated,” he said.MEN WHO WRECKED AN GRIANAN FORT GET SUSPENDED JAIL SENTENCES was last modified: July 11th, 2013 by StephenShare 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:An Grianan FortBURTJudge Paul KellyRaymond McCormickWilliam Sweeneylast_img read more

Leicester City confirm owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha among five killed in crash

first_img Fans at Selhurst Park paid their respects to the victims 6 Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha took over Leicester City in 2010 6 6 The helicopter crashed into a staff car park, bursting into flames Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha celebrates Leicester’s amazing title triumph Srivaddhanaprabha was spotted boarding the helicopter on the King Power Stadium pitch – as he did after every home match – approximately an hour after Leicester’s Premier League clash with West Ham on Saturday evening, at around 8.30pm.Tragedy struck just moments after take-off, however, as it spiralled out of control and plummeted into a staff car park just outside the stadium. Leicester City have confirmed the death of their chairman and owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha in a helicopter crash outside the club’s stadium.In a statement released on Sunday night, Leicester announced the 60-year-old was one of five people to have lost their lives in the tragic incident a day earlier. On Sunday, thousands visited the King Power Stadium to pay their respects to the victims as they awaited confirmation of their deaths.Bouquets, flags and football shirts were left outside the ground alongside a large image of the Hindu god Ganesh.Minute’s silences were held ahead of the Premier League matches between Burnley and Chelsea, and Manchester United and Everton, while there was a warm applause for the victims ahead of Crystal Palace vs Arsenal. People arrived in their droves to pay respect to the victims A Leicester statement read: “It is with the deepest regret and a collective broken heart that we confirm our chairman, Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha, was among those to have tragically lost their lives on Saturday evening when a helicopter carrying him and four other people crashed outside King Power Stadium. None of the five people on-board survived.“The primary thoughts of everyone at the club are with the Srivaddhanaprabha family and the families of all those on-board at this time of unspeakable loss.“In Khun Vichai, the world has lost a great man. A man of kindness, of generosity and a man whose life was defined by the love he devoted to his family and those he so successfully led.“Leicester City was a family under his leadership. It is as a family that we will grieve his passing and maintain the pursuit of a vision for the club that is now his legacy.“A book of condolence, which will be shared with the Srivaddhanaprabha family, will be opened at King Power Stadium from 8am on Tuesday 30 October for supporters wishing to pay their respects.“Supporters unable to visit King Power Stadium that wish to leave a message can do so through an online book of condolence, which will be made available via lcfc.com in due course.” Leicestershire Police said the other four people to have died were believed to be two of Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha’s staff Nursara Suknamai and Kaveporn Punpare, pilot Eric Swaffer and passenger Izabela Roza Lechowicz.The force said formal identification had not been completed and no one else was believed to be injured.Superintendent Steve Potter said: “This is an incredibly tragic incident in which five people are understood have lost their lives.“Emergency services were immediately on scene when the crash happened, working to put out the fire and gain access to the helicopter in attempts to reach those inside. Despite those efforts, there were no survivors.“Our thoughts today are with the families of those who have sadly died, with Leicester City Football Club, and with both football supporters and the wider local community who have all been impacted by the events of last night and the news that those on board the aircraft have not survived.”The Air Accident Investigation Branch (AAIB) is leading the investigation into the circumstances of the helicopter crash. The mangled wreckage of the helicopter pictured pic.twitter.com/hQSR0IDWWg— Leicester City (@LCFC) October 28, 2018Self-made Thai billionaire Srivaddhanaprabha bought Leicester for £39million in 2010, and became chairman the following February.Under his ownership the club rose out of the Championship and, remarkably, won the Premier League for the first time in its history in 2015-16, defying odds of 5,000-1.He was a hugely popular figure at the club and around the city, and was praised for his charity work, donating £2 million towards a new children’s hospital.Leicester have confirmed their EFL Cup match with Southampton, due to be played on Tuesday, will be postponed in the wake of his tragic death.The development squad’s fixture against against Feyenoord in the Premier League International Cup has also been scrapped for a later date. 6 6 6 Leicester stars rushed to pay tribute to Srivaddhanaprabha after his death.Harry Maguire hailed a “truly great, kind, loving man”, while Wes Morgan said he was “absolutely heartbroken and devastated regarding the news of our chairman. A man that was loved and adored by everyone here at LCFC and someone who I personally had the utmost respect for.”Jamie Vardy – whose meteoric rise through the leagues was matched step-by-step by the club as they came from nowhere to win the Premier League in 2016 – called Srivaddhanaprabha “a legend”.He said on Instagram: “Struggling to find the right words, but to me you are a legend, an incredible man who had the biggest heart, the soul of Leicester City Football Club. Thank you for everything you did for me, my family and our club. I will truly miss you, may you rest in peace.”last_img read more
