Mourinho Out trends as Spurs fans complain Pochettino was not the problem

first_imgAt minute as predicted its players not manager that’s problem 🙄🙄🙈🙈 Tottenham look allllllll shook up— Howsing (@Howsing4) November 26, 2019 Mourinhoout is trending oh dear— Nathan Cooper (@NCooper122) November 26, 2019 But Mourinho’s side quickly fought their way back into the game, pulling a goal just before half-time through Alli and another almost immediately after the break from Harry Kane.And they performed what at one stage looked to be the most unlikely of comebacks when Serge Aurier half-volleyed home a beauty and then Kane bagged his second of the game to win 4-2.It is just Mourinho’s second game since he replaced Mauricio Pochettino who was ruthlessly sacked last week.He had secured victory in his first game – a 3-2 away victory at West Ham, and confidence was high in the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium before the game.Tottenham players can’t seem to string 2 – 3 passes…— Afolabi ABIODUN 🇳🇬🇨🇦 (@afolabiodun) November 26, 2019 TOTTENHAM fans slammed their players and “MourinhoOut” started trending on Twitter during their horror start against Olympiakos.New boss Jose watched on from the sidelines in despair as the Greek champs surged into a 2-0 lead after just 19 minutes in their Champions League clash.1 Jose Mourinho was left utterly stunned as his Tottenham team collapsedCredit: GettyI’m witnessing #mourinhoout already 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣— The Mrs (@Marshall5Sharon) November 26, 2019 Tottenham players look switched off. #TOTOLY— This is America (@toomykay) November 26, 2019center_img But that evaporated pretty much straight after kick-off, as Olympiakos took firm control of the Champions League clash.First El-Arabi pinged home a 25-yarder after just six minutes, and then Borges Semedo moved the Greeks still further ahead.Those goals led to Mourinho making a substitution after just 26 minutes – hooking Eric Dier off for Christian Eriksen.Rivals fans poked fun at Tottenham’s perilous situation, and “MourinhoOut” was soon trending on Twitter.But it was the players the gaffer had picked for the game who received the most stick.Jose Mourinho celebrates with Spurs ball boy after his quick thinking leads to Champions League equaliserLatest Tottenham NewsHARRY ALL FOUR ITKane admits Spurs must win EIGHT games to rise into Champions League spotGossipALL GONE PETE TONGVertonghen wanted by host of Italian clubs as long Spurs spell nears endBELOW PARRSpurs suffer blow with Parrott to miss Prem restart after appendix operationPicturedSHIRT STORMNew Spurs 2020/21 home top leaked but angry fans slam silver design as ‘awful”STEP BY STEP’Jose fears for players’ welfare during restart as stars begin ‘pre-season’KAN’T HAVE THATVictor Osimhen keen on Spurs move but only if they sell Kane this summerAfolabi Abiodun wrote: “Tottenham players can’t seem to string 2 – 3 passes.”Another added that it was the “players and not the manager that’s the problem”, in a clear reference that Pochettino wasn’t to blame.This was a central theme to many tweets from angry Spurs fans on social media.What a win today.

Dr. Menjay Appeals for Emergency Education Reform

first_imgThe president of the Liberia Baptist Missionary and Educational Convention, Rev. Dr. Olu Q. Menjay, has stressed the need to restructure Liberia’s education system with urgency.According to Dr. Menjay, Liberia has an emergency for education reform which demands an immediate and urgent action to achieve the reform process.“This emergency requires radical actions and therefore must be treated as a life time or death situation where we have no time to play around,” he said.He believes that anything short of this, the future of our existence as a country will be miserable.Dr. Menjay, who is also Principal of Ricks Institute, a Baptist high school, made the disclosure recently in an exclusive interview with the Daily Observer at his office in Virginia, outside Monrovia.   He observed that the education crisis in country is now becoming a crisis for the entire economy, endangering the country’s prospects for a brighter future.He called on stakeholders to create a critical awareness of the country’s social reality through reflection and actions.According to him, to improve and transform Liberian education, everyone, including state actors, “must recognize our imperfection by acknowledging our own deficiency.”As a school administrator, Dr. Menjay said it pains his heart when 95 percent of passes made in examinations administered annually by the West African Examination Council (WAEC) for Liberia’s high schools are very weak passes.He said a scale from one to eight with eight being the limited passing mark, over 95 percent of the students who passed, made eight on the scale.As such, he observed, “It is worrisome to know that in Liberia, only a single student passed the West African Senior Secondary Certificate Exams (WASSCE).”It is annoying to know that the country does not have adequate textbooks for students, said Dr. Menjay, adding that it is critical because there is no future without quality education.Rev. Mejay is also vice president of the Baptist World Alliance (BWA) and Principal/Chief Administrative Officer of Ricks Institute, one of Liberia’s premier institutions of learning.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Guardiola fears bans could derail City

first_img0Shares0000Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola’s team has three key players that are one yellow card away from earning suspensions © AFP/File / Lindsey PARNABYMANCHESTER, United Kingdom, Dec 2 – Pep Guardiola admits he is concerned about potential suspensions when leaders Manchester City face West Ham United looking to equal a Premier League record on Sunday.Victory over West Ham would mark a 13th consecutive league victory for Guardiola’s team, equalling the record for the most straight wins in a single season, currently owned jointly by Chelsea last season and Arsenal in 2001-02. That Arsenal team went on to win a 14th game at the beginning of the following campaign and, should they beat West Ham, City will have the chance to tie that record when they travel to Old Trafford to face title rivals Manchester United seven days later.But three key players — midfielders Fernandinho and Leroy Sane, plus captain Vincent Kompany — are one yellow card away from earning suspensions that would rule them out of the eagerly-awaited Manchester derby.And that has raised the prospect of Guardiola resting one or more of those players for struggling West Ham’s visit to Eastlands.“We will see tomorrow in the training sessions what we will do. Of course they can play or rest,” said Guardiola, whose side are eight points clear at the top.“Vincent Kompany was two months injured, he played a game then again three days later.“Fernandinho played a lot of minutes but this is an important game, we can’t think about United.“I’m worried about the bookings but West Ham as well. We’ll see the team.“The last game we didn’t play David Silva from the beginning, I rotated and maybe I will again. Nine games in one month is a lot.”City will be hoping for a more routine victory against West Ham than in their last three games, all of which have required late winning goals from Raheem Sterling, who has already topped his best ever goalscoring season with 13.– Social issues –The City manager has been keen to credit Sterling for his dramatic improvement, but believes the England winger taking his advice and limiting his use of social media has been a key factor.“If the reason why he’s scored a lot of goals is because he’s out of social media then I’ll say it to all the players!” said Guardiola.“Before he was more active (on social media) and now he’s more passive.“Of course, they are free to do whatever they want but after that, they have 30 million comments and you can’t avoid it, people criticise you because you show a picture.“If you want to do it, fine. But people can criticise your family because of how they dress.“Enjoy it for yourself and nobody needs to know what they are doing in their private lives. There is no rule but we have our advice as a club.”David Moyes has endured a difficult start to life at West Ham and heads to City still looking for a first win in his fourth game since taking charge.“I was hoping it would be a bit easier, to be honest,” he said.“In football you just never know. It’s a big task and a big job, but it’s a good challenge and they have good players here.“I think we’ll be OK. We have got a good team.”The Hammers’ prospects of getting something from the game haven’t been helped by a lengthy injury list.Jose Fonte, James Collins, Sam Byram, Andy Carroll and Javier Hernandez are all sidelined.West Ham goalkeeper Joe Hart is ineligible to face parent club City, opening the door for Adrian to start.0Shares0000(Visited 2 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

first_imgPaul DurcanDONEGAL goalkeeper Paul Durcan is celebrating tonight – after landing a Dublin club county championship.St Vincent’s dream of securing a third title in a row was shattered by Durcan’s club Ballyboden St Enda’s from the southside who claimed the title for the first time since 2009.St Vincent’s, who had won an All-Ireland club title and two Leinster crowns during their reign, started as 4/1 on favourites. But Ballyboden shocked the Marino side in the first half. An early goal from Andrew Kerin set the tone and it took St Vincent’s 22 minutes to register their first score.As the fog descended on Parnell Park Ballyboden already had one hand on the trophy as they led 1-7 to 0-3 at the break.They looked to have put the game beyond Vincent’s reach early in the third quarter when – after a foul on dual player Conal Keaney – Kerin notched his second goal, this time from the penalty spot. They added another point in the 37th minute to lead 2-8 to 0-4.St Vincent’s finally got their act together in the final quarter and began a spirited comeback. With Ballyboden content to defend their sizeable lead Vincent’s poured forward and hit six points without reply to narrow the gap to four points. But Ballyboden held their nerve. Even though they failed to score in the last 24 minutes crucially they didn’t concede a goal with former Four Masters man Durcan between the posts and held out for a 2-8 to 0-10 victory to capture the blue riband prize in Dublin football. They previously won the title in 1995 and 2009.Dublin midfielder Michael Darragh Macauley is a key figure for the winners who had Dublin hurlers Stephen Hiney and Conal Keaney in the side while David ‘Dotsie’ O’Callaghan came on as a substitute. PAUL DURCAN PART OF MAJOR UPSET AS CLUB LANDS DUBLIN COUNTY TITLE was last modified: November 1st, 2015 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:2015BallybodendublinDublin championsPaul Durcanlast_img read more

first_imgCiaran Bonner was in sensational form for Glenswilly in their Donegal SFC win over Bundoran.Glenswilly 6-16 Bundoran 0-09 Glenswilly bounced back from the disappointment of last weekend’s defeat to Kilcar, by hammering a lacklustre Bundoran side.Bundoran suffered a heavy away defeat to St Michaels last weekend and it was hoped they’d be a tougher proposition at home. Managed by Donegal GAA legend Brian McEniff, Bundoran had no answer to a rampant Glenswilly who were hungry, ruthless and clinical throughout the entire match.Goals from Neil Gallagher and Michael Murphy in the opening period ensured a comfortable win for Glenswilly.They added four more goals in the second-half which may prove crucial, as it could come down to the scoring difference to see who advances to the last eight.Kilcar and Glenswilly are both on two points each, while St Michaels have four. Kilcar will be expected to defeat Bundoran which would them on four, while if Glenswilly defeat St Michaels next week that would leave all three teams on four points apiece.It’s going to be interesting next week in the so-called Group of Death.Mac Cumhaills 0-09 Four Masters 2-14Four Masters delivered an excellent and assured performance yesterday evening to defeat Mac Cumhaills.Four Masters were dominant throughout and goals from Peadar Espie and Kevin McBrearty ensured they would leave Mac Cumhaill Park with the crucial victory they desperately needed. Mac Cumhaills lost Rory Dunleavy brother of Cork City captain Johnny Dunleavy to a black card in first-half injury time.In truth Mac Cumhaills battled gamely but were outclassed by a Four Masters team that were well organised, determined and clinical.Four Masters now play Glenfin who exited the competition following their defeat to Ardara.A win for Four Masters next week would see them advance to the last eight of the Donegal SFC.

Report finds poorer families relying on grandparents for childcare

first_imgFamilies are more likely to rely on grandparents to provide childcare, a new report has found.Children’s Minister Katherine Zappone has defended the fact that the supports are only targeted at those using creches or childminders which are registered with Tusla.Now the Economic and Social Research Institute (ESRI) has found following a report that less well-off families are unlikely to use creches.A spokesman for Minister Zappone has claimed that the findings of the report from the ESRI “prove the minister’s point”.“For many people on low incomes, childcare is not an option,” he said. “The findings do support the policy.”Ms Zappone has said that the scheme is the first step in reforming the childcare situation in Ireland, she said the funding would allow people to move away from relying on relatives for childcare.‘Cherishing All of the Children Equally?’ – the report by the ESRI noted: “State investment in early care and education for children aged three and under…has been very, very low. The private sector dominates the market and costs to most parents are very expensive.”Similar to earlier research, the report showed again that relatives (usually grandparents) were the most common form of childcare in Ireland, while childminders were the second most common, followed by centre-based care, such as creches.Children from advantaged backgrounds were more likely to be cared for by childminders or creches.“Class differences in access to care and education are marked in the early years in Ireland, partly linked to the relatively high cost of childcare for parents,” the report has added.The supports introduced by Ms Zappone include a universal payment of up to €80 per month toward childcare.A means tested subsidy scheme is also due to come into effect, which will see low-income earners benefit from subsidised payments of up to €5.38 per hour. The measures have been met with mixed reactions following the announcement of Budget 2017.The National Women’s Council of Ireland this week welcomed the funding allocation, which they said would help get women back to work.Meanwhile, CEO of the National Childminding Association, Teresa Heeney, has warned that the new measures could force this type of provider out of the market.Childminders can register with Tusla, which will make their clients eligible to apply for the supports. However, at the moment less than 1% are registered.
