Big names push up MLS attendance

first_imgDENVER (AP):Kaka and David Villa are raising the profile of Major League Soccer (MLS). Clint Dempsey and the US national teams have done their part, too.Buoyed by international football icons and capitalising on recent World Cup success by the American men’s and women’s national teams, the league is drawing record numbers so far this season, MLS Commissioner Don Garber said in an interview with The Associated Press this week.MLS averages 21,109 spectators a game, a figure bolstered by the additions of Orlando City (Kaka’s squad) and New York City FC (Villa’s team). The 20-team league also has new television deals that allow their stars to be seen all over the globe.MLSLOSINGMONEYStill, MLS is losing money – Garber declined to give an exact figure – as teams write big cheques for top players and fund player development through academy programmes to discover the next Michael Bradley, Landon Donovan or Dempsey.”We’re still in investment mode,” said Garber, whose MLS All-Stars beat Tottenham Hotspur 2-1 on Wednesday. “But there’s a lot of momentum for the sport of football in the US and Canada, and that is empowering.”Next on the docket? Expansion. Atlanta is scheduled to join MLS in 2017 and a second team in Los Angeles the following season. Down the road, Miami and Minnesota are expected to come on board as well.Garber threw his support behind a plan presented by retired football icon David Beckham to officials in Miami. Beckham and his partners are looking at the former Orange Bowl site, with the field financed privately and built on city-owned land at an estimated cost of around $200 million.”We believe Miami will be a great MLS market and we look forward to bringing the whole project across the finish line,” Garber said.As for Minnesota, that’s proving a little more challenging. With the passing of an early July deadline for a stadium plan in Minneapolis, the league is turning its attention towards St Paul.”We’ve now become intrigued by a possibility of having a stadium be in St Paul,” Garber said. “Similar with Miami, though, without a stadium, you can’t go forward anywhere. But we remain hopeful.”Other potential markets include Sacramento, St Louis or San Diego, he said.”That speaks to this overall growth period that we’re going through,” Garber said. “You have to do expansion right. There’s no rush. If we have to wait any period of time to get it right, we’re willing to do that.”Garber is encouraged by the number of foreign players headlining MLS rosters – and not just as a last resort.Sebastian Giovinco, the 28-year-old former Juventus standout, has 13 goals and 10 assists for Toronto FC this season.Then there’s Kaka and Villa, a pair of 33-year-old highly decorated players who are demonstrating they still have flashy moves. Kaka scored on a penalty kick in the MLS All-Star game and set up Villa’s goal.last_img read more

Baby perishes in EBD fire, 11 others homeless

first_imgA seven-month-old baby perished on Monday morning after his home was allegedly set on fire by a suspected arsonist, who had threatened to burn down the house after the owner made a report against him and his cohorts.Dead baby: Romain SethThe charred remains of seven-month-old Romain Levi Seth were pulled from the ruins hours after the fire was extinguished by firefighters at Lot 462 Third Field, Kaneville, East Bank Demerara (EBD).The remains were found in the same area where the child was left sleeping when he was put to bed by his grandmother on Sunday evening. The fire reportedly started about 02:00h in the same bedroom after an explosive device was hurled through the window by a young man whose name was provided to the Police.Guyana Times understands that the young man and his friends had threatened to set the house alight after the owner, Michelle Menez, had made a report to the Police Station about their marijuana business close to her home.The young men were reportedly arrested, but were later released by the Police. It was upon their release that they threatened to kill each member of the house and accused Menez of being a Police informant. When Guyana Times visited the scene on Monday, a pair of rubber slippers suspected to be that of the arsonist was left behind.The remains of the wooden structure after the blazeThe owner of the house, who is the dead child’s grandmother, and the mother of the dead baby were at the Grove Police Station.The mother, Holly Seth, who was in tears told Guyana Times that she left her only child with her mother, since she had to run some errands with her brother. When the fire started about 02:00h, she had not returned.The grieving mother explained that she received a call from her niece who informed her that her house was on fire. At that moment, she was not aware that her son had perished.“It was until I reach home and enquire about my son, they tell me that he burn up…” she cried.At the scene of the fire, an aunt, Yonette Walters, told Guyana Times that she received a telephone call from her daughter who informed her that her house was on fire.“I was at work, so I called my boss and tell him my house on fire and I rushed home… when I reach I see it was my sister’s house instead… I enquire what happen and all they tell me is that Romain get burn up… My sister was crying bitterly and I comfort her,” the woman stated.She also confirmed that at the time of the fire, her sister was at home along with eight children. Walters explained that her sister attempted to save her grandson from the inferno, but the heat was too intense. She, however, managed to save the others.A teenaged relative who resides next door recalled feeling heat and upon looking through the window, she realised that her aunt’s house was on fire and immediately raised an alarm. By that time, portions of the wooden structure were already engulfed in flames.Persons in the area and other family members formed a bucket brigade and attempted to control the blaze until the firefighters arrived on the scene. The distraught teenager recollected her aunt crying out for Romain and it was then they were told that the baby had burnt to death.The Police and the Guyana Fire Service have launched an investigation into the fire. Several persons were detained for questioning. (Bhisham Mohamed)last_img read more

Mourinho misery extends United’s woes in post-Ferguson era

first_img0Shares0000Jose Mourinho’s stormy reign at Manchester United came to an end as he was sacked by the clubLONDON, United Kingdom, Dec 18 – Watching on at Anfield as Manchester United meekly surrendered 3-1 to Liverpool in what proved to be Jose Mourinho’s last match in charge, Alex Ferguson was caught shaking his head at the sight of what the empire he built has become.For the fourth time since Ferguson retired in 2013 after nearly 27 years in charge, with 13 Premier League titles under his belt, United are looking for a new manager. The volatile Mourinho was largely the author of his own downfall. He leaves the world’s richest club 19 points off the top of the Premier League and with an almighty struggle just to qualify for next season’s Champions League with a top-four finish.But his departure should sound alarm bells for United’s American owners, the Glazer family, as they struggle to find a manager capable of following in Ferguson’s footsteps.The fiery Scotsman signed off by winning the league. In the five years since, United have not even been in contention to win the title.Replacing one of the all-time greats was never going to be an easy task but even Ferguson, who also led United to two Champions League crowns, five FA Cups and four League Cups, would never have dreamed it would prove such a poisoned chalice.As a fellow Glaswegian whose relative success on a limited budget at Everton evoked memories of Ferguson’s breakthrough years with Aberdeen, David Moyes apparently had the skillset and background to follow his compatriot’s template in Manchester.But after Ferguson anointed him as his hand-picked replacement, Moyes proved completely out of his depth and lasted just 10 months of his six-year contract.Moyes’s penchant for conservative tactics, dour training sessions and a lack of man-management skills might seem familiar to members of the current United squad, who grew sick of Mourinho’s acerbic personality.By the time United were ruled out of qualifying for the Champions League, the writing was on the wall for Moyes, whose sacking in April 2014 made his the shortest United managerial reign for 82 years.Autocratic Dutchman Louis van Gaal was also a poor fit despite his impressive pedigree with Barcelona and Ajax. His football was too one-paced and predictable for fans fed on Ferguson’s aggressive approach for so long.Returning United to the Champions League with a top-four finish in his first season bought Van Gaal some time, but the only standard that matters at Old Trafford is winning the title.When they laboured to a fifth place finish 12 months later, even United’s FA Cup final win against Crystal Palace was not enough to spare Van Gaal.– ‘Whole club needs resetting’ –Mourinho’s self-proclaimed status as a serial trophy winner made him the obvious choice to take a role he had long regarded as his dream job.But the siege mentality that helped Mourinho inspire his players to remarkable success at Porto, Chelsea and Inter Milan was no longer such a convincing act for the pampered millionaires that inhabit the Old Trafford dressing room.Although Mourinho won the League Cup and Europa League in his first season, United finished a dismal sixth in the Premier League.It did not help that Mourinho’s dour game-plans in a trophy-less second season contrasted so sharply with Pep Guardiola’s stylish and successful Manchester City side, who romped to the title with a record 100 points.And at Liverpool, Jurgen Klopp has woken a sleeping giant and put them in contention for a first league title since 1990, adding defensive steel to attacking flair.Guardiola and Klopp were both on the market in the post-Ferguson era and passed United by.The club stated on Tuesday that time will be taken to find a successor, with a caretaker put in charge for the rest of the season.But there are concerns over who will make that decision, with the club increasingly obsessed with commercial interests rather than winning on the pitch.“There’s a multitude of issues, it’s more complex than the manager getting the best out of the players or not being backed. It’s a deep problem, it needs resetting, the whole club needs resetting,” said former United captain Gary Neville said on Sunday.“Five years ago, two huge figures (Ferguson and former chief executive David Gill) left that football club, two figures that had great knowledge of the game.“What happened was the financial and commercial people, that are fantastic at their jobs, were put in charge of the football side of things and they are not competent enough to do it.“They have to now hand it over to people that are good enough to run the football side of the club.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

DANIEL OPENS THE DOORS OF HIS VISITORS CENTRE FOR A SNEAK PREVIEW

first_imgDaniel O’Donnell has opened up his new visitor’s centre to give readers of Donegaldaily.com a sneak preview.The much-awaited Daniel O’Donnell Visitors’ Centre will not officially open its doors until Sunday.But the Kincasslagh star allowed us behind the scenes as the final touches were put to what is expected to become one of the biggest tourist attractions in the county. Daniel was in a bit of a hurry when we caught up with him this week as he made his way to a game of cards.He kindly posed for photos but then put Donegaldaily in the capable hands of wife Majella.He did have time to show us the make-shift storage room which holds the treasure-chest of memorabilia above The Stepping Stone bar on the town’s Main Street which is literally a shrine to the star.Not a hair out of place and looking nothing close to his half century, the millionaire singer admits that he hasn’t seen much of the memorabilia in recent years. “There’s so much stuff that I had actually forgotten about half of it because it has been stored away.“It brings back so many memories and I’m really delighted to see it coming together now,” he said.He says he is delighted with how things are shaping up.“I’m really looking forward t the day now – I think it’s going to be really lovely and it’ll be even better if we get the weather.”Daniel knows more than most how much Dungloe, Kincasslagh and Donegal has been hit by various recessions over the years. His father Francis was forced to work for years abroad in Scotland providing for Daniel’s mother Julia and his family.The visitor’s centre may not be a complete solution to this once thriving Co Donegal town’s woes, but it may breath new life into it.“That’s the hope. Sometimes we have to do things for ourselves and this is one of those times.“It’s starting to take shape and hopefully the fans will like it,” said Daniel. He checks if various things are being sorted and, as quickly as he strolled in, he’s away to keep his date at the card school.Wife Majella is left making sure the list of things to do are ticked off before Sunday’s grand opening.She moves form item to item, each piece telling a different chapter about her husband rags-to-riches success story.Pictures of Daniel and Cliff Richard, dozens of gold discs for millions of record sales and even a pair of cowboy boots and a Stetson which Daniel wore when he played the Grand Old Oprey.“There are so many great things here and he’s just so laid back about it all. He has never changed,” said Majella.Dressed casually in jeans and a t-shirt, Majella says she would prefer to leave the photographs until the grand opening.“I don’t even have any make-up on. Leave it until Sunday and we’ll get plenty of photos,” said the down-to-earth woman.Daniel’s best man PJ Sweeney looks like he is bursting with pride as he picks up item after item of personalised memorabilia.Among them is a handful of original vinyl albums signed by Daniel to a fan.“They’d be worth some money I think,” said PJ.Pat ‘Nora’ Gallagher, the man whose idea it was to set up the Daniel O’Donnell Visitor’s Centre, then arrives.He is a whirlwind of energy as he makes his way through the various rooms and corridors of the half-ready complex.He dodges painters, electricians and carpenters who are all trying to put the final touches to what could become the spark to ignite Dungloe’s tourism industry once again.“We’re certainly hoping so. The reaction to the centre has been nothing but positive from locals and from people around the world.“Travel company Tara Travel have already confirmed that 97 people will be travelling form Killarney to Donegal after Daniel’s concert in August to visit the centre.“That’s the kind of on-the-ground reaction that we need and we’re hoping that will continue,” he said.The well-known Donegal entrepreneur then takes us on a whistle-stop tour of the complex.Visitors – hopefully tens of thousands of them – will first see a 12 minute video of their hero’s life from growing up on The Hill in Kincasslagh to playing in front of millions of fans around the globe.Throughout the centre, Daniel’s achievements will be seen everywhere.From the actual This Is Your Life red book presented to him by Michael Aspel in 2000 to the silver MBE medal presented to him by Britain’s Prince Charles in 2001, it’s all here.There are at least 30 various gold and platinum discs as well as various items of clothing including Daniel’s wedding suit and Majella’s wedding dress which they worn in 2002.Around each corridor is yet another surprise which will leave Daniel fans thinking they have died and gone to Danielville!However the most appealing aspect of the centre for Daniel’s millions of fans worldwide will be the many personal items from Daniel’s early days.And one of the most fascinating will be Daniel’s first schoolbag – a brown leather travel case – which even contains some of his first copy books!“I can just picture him travelling off down the road to school carrying that,” laughed Majella.Come Sunday, the streets of Dungloe will be awash with thousands of people in what will be a poignant reminder of the days when the Mary From Dungloe Festival was in its heyday.Daniel will officially cut the chord and unveil a huge poster of himself outside the visitor’s centre with the words ‘Follow Your Dream.”Country singing stars including Lisa McHugh, Shaun Cuddy as well as Daniel and Majella will perform at a concert on the day.As our private tour comes to a quick end to allow the army of workers to get on with the task of having the centre ready, Majella decides to give the lift its maiden voyage.Thankfully she emerges below outside the Bank Bistro with one hundred and one jobs to do.“God, that wasn’t very smart. Could you imagine if I had have got stuck in it?” laughs the lovely Majella.Judging by the effort being put into it, there’s only one direction the Daniel O’Donnell Visitor’s Centre is going – through the roof!DANIEL OPENS THE DOORS OF HIS VISITORS CENTRE FOR A SNEAK PREVIEW was last modified: May 4th, 2012 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:daniel o’donnellvisitor’s centrelast_img read more

Garage stuffed with generosity

In recent months, the salesman and Glendale Sunrise Rotary Club president coordinated a collection of stuffed animals for officers and firefighters to give to children in need. Ropfogel collected more than 200 stuffed animals and crammed them into the detached garage at his Glendale home. But on Friday, Ropfogel was ready to give up the toys to authorities eager to take them.

I think it will (bring) a lot of joy to the kids that we come in contact with here on the streets,” said Officer John Balian, a spokesman for the Glendale Police Department. Other police departments have also used stuffed animals to help children cope with stressful situations. Ropfogel, 53, who has worked with the Red Cross, said he envisions officers keeping some stuffed animals in their vehicles to hand out to console children after domestic violence situations or fires. “It’s an upsetting event and stuffed animals are comforting for little kids,” he said.

‘Roma is not a supermarket’ – Liverpool warned over Mohamed Salah pursuit

first_img1 Mohamed Salah won’t be allowed to leave Roma for less than their valuation Roma have warned Liverpool they are not “a supermarket” and there will be no bargain buy for winger Mohamed Salah.The Reds have been in talks with the Serie A side for several weeks over the Egypt international after having an opening bid of £28million rejected.Roma’s valuation of the 24-year-old is far in excess of Liverpool’s and it is understood the price being quoted to the Merseysiders is more than the 40m euros (£35m) being reported in Italy.Sporting director Monchi, confirming the interest in Salah, said they would not be forced into selling below their valuation of the player but did not rule out Salah leaving.“For Salah there is an offer from an English club but the price will be set by Roma, not the buyers,” he told a press conference for the presentation of new coach Eusebio Di Francesco.“As I’ve said before, Roma is not a supermarket. Roma is a team that will represent Italy in Europe.“We came second in Serie A and our idea is to keep as good a team as possible.“At the same time no club exists that does not sell players.”last_img read more

Tragic father admitted driving at 170kph after son suffered accident

first_imgA grieving father caught speeding at 170kph was rushing to get home quickly after hearing his son had an accident shortly after another son had been killed tragically.Alex Coyle appeared at Letterkenny District Court charged with dangerous driving on November 15th, 2016. Mr Coyle explained that he had been telephoned by his wife Susanna and told that his son had suffered a serious fall.The court was told that Mr Coyle was still suffering following the loss of another son, two-year-old son Joshua, in tragic circumstances in 2014.Little Joshua was killed when a family friend struck him in his van while reversing out of Mr Coyle’s home at Creeveglebe.Solicitor for the accused, Mr Seamus Gunne explained that his client was speeding home because he thought he was reliving his first tragedy all over again.He said his client was still suffering from the incident“He had been telephoned and told his son had fallen and hit his head. He thought the worst.“Eighteen months previously he had lost another son in a tragic accident in the garden of the family home. He has not been the better of it since.“He carried little Joshua in his arms to the hospital. This has been a horrific time for the family.“He simply feared the worst and thought ‘Here we go again,’ said Mr Gunne.Mr Gunne added that his client was a very responsible parent who had simply feared the worst when he got the phonecall from his distressed wife.Judge Paul Kelly offered his sympathies to Mr Coyle and his family.However he warned Mr Coyle that if he continued to drive at this speed then he could well have a tragedy revisited upon himself on his or another family.He reduced the charge from dangerous driving to careless driving and fined Mr Coyle €350.Tragic father admitted driving at 170kph after son suffered accident was last modified: July 5th, 2018 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:Alex CoylecarcourtdeathdonegalfineJoshuasonSpeedlast_img read more
