We battled but you expect that at this level in every game.“It’s disappointing being 1-0 up at half-time, being ahead and not being able to see it through. When you lose a game, it’s not a step forward — it showed we’ve got to work hard.“It’s disappointing, so we’ll assess it and see where we can improve. Then, hopefully, we can take it into Everton on Sunday.“We could have been a bit braver. When we went 2-1 down, we started to do it better, create two or three chances towards the end but it was too late.”Jake Lambourne29 Oct 2019, 9:22 pm Jake Lambourne29 Oct 2019, 8:41 pmJake Lambourne29 Oct 2019, 8:05 pmJake Lambourne29 Oct 2019, 7:29 pmThe Club will be marking this period of Remembrance during the coming weeks by showing its support for our serving Armed Forces, veterans and the Royal British Legion’s Poppy Appeal.@PoppyLegion ⚪️ #THFC— Tottenham Hotspur (@SpursOfficial) October 28, 2019Jake Lambourne29 Oct 2019, 6:56 pmTOTTENHAM boss Mauricio Pochettino was left stunned by a journalist’s claim that Tanguy Ndombele “made a big difference” when he came on against Liverpool.The £65million French midfielder came into the game on 63 minutes replacing Harry Winks with the score at 1-1.In the post-match press conference it was put to Poch that Ndombele “made a big difference” when he replaced Winks.The boss replied: “Big difference? Doing what?”The reporter then highlighted the 22-year-old’s passing as being impressive in the second half and asked whether he will be starting more games.Pochettino replied: “Yes but in this time the game was different no? I think be careful how we assess.“I was talking to some of your colleagues before the game. With 29 players in the squad it’s so important to rotate and keep them all motivated to play.“He played on Tuesday in the Champions League and I think Harry Winks was fresh to play.”Jake Lambourne29 Oct 2019, 6:20 pm🎟️ Tickets for @SpursWomen’s historic north London derby against Arsenal Women in the @BarclaysFAWSL at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Sunday 17 November are now on general sale.#THWFC ⚪️ #COYS— Tottenham Hotspur (@SpursOfficial) October 28, 2019Jake Lambourne29 Oct 2019, 5:43 pmTOTTENHAM fans can look forward to reliving their defeat to Liverpool in great detail when Amazon’s upcoming documentary series airs.Reports detail how the club are pocketing around £10million for the ‘All or Nothing’ programme.And the 2-1 defeat at Anfield was the first time cameras were allowed inside Mauricio Pochettino’s dressing room.According to The Athletic, Liverpool bosses were more than happy for Spurs to bring the film crew into the ground with them.Harry Kane’s early goal set the side on their way to a famous win on Merseyside.But second-half strikes from Jordan Henderson and Mohamed Salah left them empty handed and cameras picked up a no-doubt dejected Tottenham after the whistle.Jake Lambourne29 Oct 2019, 5:07 pmPAULO GAZZANIGA was left bitterly disappointed by the defeat against Liverpool despite his outstanding performance.Speaking to Spurs’ website, he said: “At the end, the three points stay here and we’re all disappointed.““We tried until the end and after it went to 2-1 we tried and tried, but again, we couldn’t take a point.“Sonny hit the crossbar and maybe 2-0 could have changed the game, but again, we have to keep trying, keep working hard.“There are things we need to work on but with a negative score, everything you see is negative but there are also a few positives. They won, so we have to look at ourselves, keep pushing ourselves, that’s the way.”Jake Lambourne29 Oct 2019, 4:30 pmROY KEANE has issued a withering assessment of Serge Aurier and Danny Rose – naming the duo Dumb and Dumber after their performances against Liverpool.Manchester United legend Keane was in the Sky Sports studio for the match and did not hold back when discussing the Spurs defenders.He said: “The two Tottenham full-backs were dreadful. Dumb and Dumber, I’d call them.“I thought they were really poor. You can’t compare them to Liverpool, the two lads who are absolutely fantastic.“Particularly going forward, okay defensively there’s parts of the games they can improve on, but going forward they’re absolutely fantastic.”Jake Lambourne28 Oct 2019, 3:53 pm”There are things we need to work on but with a negative score, everything you see is negative but there are also a few positives.”#THFC ⚪️ #COYS— Tottenham Hotspur (@SpursOfficial) October 28, 2019William Pugh28 Oct 2019, 2:31 pmGARETH BALE does not know who the Prime Minister is, “genuinely” has no clue about “99 per cent” of Brexit and pays no interest in the “nonsense” because all he follows is golf.The Real Madrid and Wales superstar, 30, earns around £93,000 per DAY in the Spanish capital.Quizzed on Brexit, Bale said: “I look in terms of stuff financially, if Brexit affects me in a certain way for money or investments, but I don’t read the rest of the nonsense.“I genuinely don’t know 99 per cent of Brexit.“I don’t even know the prime minister is anymore.”Upon being told it is Boris Johnson, Bale replied: “Well, there we go. I didn’t know that.“I thought he was the mayor?“I can’t have a say in it so I’m not interested. I follow the golf, that’s about it.“I can tell you who’s number one in the world.”William Pugh28 Oct 2019, 1:29 pmGARY NEVILLE thinks Manchester United would take Christian Eriksen “tomorrow” – but Roy Keane is not so sure.The Danish playmaker looked set to leave Tottenham this summer, but transfer interest from Real Madrid and United came to nothing.Instead the 27-year-old has remained in North London with his contract expiring at the end of the season.United legend Neville reckons Old Trafford bosses would compete to sign the Spurs star on a free transfer next summer.He said on Sky Sports: “Manchester United would take him tomorrow.“Would he improve Man United? I think he would.“What you’re seeing at the moment with Eriksen is a player who is not buying into what’s happening.“He’s disinterested. He’ll switch it on again when he moves to another club.“I’m not saying he’s good, but will Man United, PSG, or Real Madrid take him? On a free, they will.”William Pugh28 Oct 2019, 12:43 pmTottenham great Rafael van der Vaart has urged his former club to sign Ajax midfield sensation Hakim Ziyech.And ex-Holland star VdV said he has sent a personal message to Spurs chairman Daniel Levy telling him to snap up the Morocco international next summer.He scored in Ajax’s 4-0 win over arch-rivals Feyenoord on Sunday.Afterwards Van der Vaart said: “I really hope that Ziyech goes to Tottenham Hotspur, and I mean it.“I sent Daniel Levy a message earlier today.  I told him to get Ziyech once the season is over.“I am convinced that he will be a sensation in London, and I also hope he gets a move over there.”Ziyech appeared to cut a surly figure after being substituted late in the game.Van der Vaart, speaking to Dutch broadcaster NOS, added: “That would make no difference to me if I was his manager.“You know how clubs think.  They always want players who are ideal son-in-law material.“But as far as I’m concerned, what could go wrong?  He would sell out the stadium.“I hope Spurs sign him, and say: ‘Let’s see what happens with him.’”William Pugh28 Oct 2019, 11:49 am🎂 Happy birthday, Erik Thorstvedt.#THFC ⚪️ #COYS pic.twitter.com/hgHztTLGUt— Tottenham Hotspur (@SpursOfficial) October 28, 2019William Pugh28 Oct 2019, 10:19 amHARRY REDKNAPP was taken to hospital while working for BT Sport earlier this month – after getting his earpiece stuck.The ex-Spurs boss, 72, appeared as a guest on the channel to help cover his former side’s trip to Brighton on October 5.But he ended up having to make a rapid dash to the local A&E to dislodge a piece of plastic that was wedged in his ear.Now according to The Athletic, BT Sport crew even tried to pull it out with a pair of PLIERS – but to no avail.Redknapp was unhurt and returned to complete his punditry duties.But it is understood BT bosses have now banned regular-shaped broadcast earpieces with only specially-moulded ones allowed to be worn.At the time, he said: “I came in and they put an earpiece in me, and I took it out, but a piece of it broke off and got stuck in my ear.“So I ended up in the local hospital trying to get it out because the most the guys were trying to get it out, the deeper they were pushing it in.“Anyway, it’s out now.”William Pugh28 Oct 2019, 9:12 am🗣️ @GazzanigaPaulo: “We have to look at ourselves and keep pushing ourselves, that is the way forward.” #THFC ⚪️ #COYS pic.twitter.com/aiaoSSdPcr— Tottenham Hotspur (@SpursOfficial) October 27, 2019William Pugh28 Oct 2019, 8:39 amROY KEANE slammed Dele Alli calling him “non-existent” after Tottenham’s defeat at Anfield on Sunday.Spurs threw away an early lead to lose 2-1 and the famously dour Irishman did not pull any punches in his assessment of the midfielder’s performance.Speaking after the game he said: “Very very poor.“He’s a great example to a lot of footballers out there if you lose your hunger.“Spurs were carrying three of four players.

Kitty Market vendors protest market’s non-completion

first_img…still paying monthly rental 2 years nowOver two years ago, the Kitty Market vendors were removed from their stalls to facilitate repairs to the dilapidating building, but are yet to return, since the market is still under construction. Fed-up by the constant delays, the vendors and representatives from the political Opposition staged a picketing exercise demanding answers and a speedy completion of the market.The protesters in front of the Kitty MarketLast Monday, Communities Minister Ronald Bulkan paid a visit to the market and pledged an additional $25 million to complete the project.Due to the unavailability of funds and materials, City Hall approached the Communities Ministry for assistance since the first phase of the works is about 70 per cent complete for the upper flat and 45 per cent for the lower flat.Vendor Annette Singh, who was displaced to the roadside, said the sanitary facility is in a deplorable state since the washrooms do not have running water and women often contract infections when they use the toilet.“We don’t have proper facility with the cleaning, we have garbage here for weeks and weeks and no one cleans it. They (City Hall) have a cleaner does come but he don’t clean out here. We does have to clean our own garbage, sweep everything, they are getting paid to do nothing,” she said.Singh said she has been vending at the Kitty Market for over 26 years and because of the relocation, she has lost a number of customers resulting in her business suffering, forcing her to downsize.“We lost a lot of customers. They (City Hall) are not saying anything to us and when the Ministers come they just go upstairs and they don’t come and speak to vendors,” the disgruntled vendor stated.Zaman with his placardThe vendors said they are not hearing anything from City Hall’s administration and noted that they are being forced to pay rental for the unoccupied stalls in the market. The vendors have to pay a rental fee of $300 per day for weekdays and $600 on weekends.“They charging us for the monthly rent in there and out here too and that is unfair because we have to stay in the sun and the rain. They start this market so long and put us on the pave and people passing and telling us all kind of thing but where will we go,” another vendor, Zaman, noted.Joining the protest, People’s Progressive Party Member of Parliament (MP), Juan Edghill said the continuous plugging on money into the market’s rehabilitation is questionable.“I am lending solidarity with the people of Kitty and more so the vendors of the Kitty Market. We have to put in perspective, this seems to be a new cash cow, how much has already been spent? $240 million already gone, the Minister comes around and said he is going to put in another $25 million. When will this market be finished?” Edghill questioned.He added that Government only acts when leadership is provided by the Opposition, hence the reason for them joining the vendors.“The vendors have been removed they have to sell on the ground. They are displaced; they have to pay for stalls that are not occupied just to keep their space in the market. When are they going to be able to move back into the market, when are they going to get access to the stalls they are paying for, when the citizens will have access to the Kitty Market, how much more money would be spent?” he further questioned.The MP stated that the visit by Minister Bulkan was a mere publicity stunt to distract from the real issues at the market.During Minister Bulkan’s visit to the market, Assistant City Engineer, Rasheed Kellman said he envisions the new Kitty Market to have a “supermarket arrangement” where the products are nicely packaged and displayed.“We’re hoping to have a supermarket arrangement where the meat is nicely portioned and packaged and placed in freezers. We don’t want to be operating in the same manner when this market is finished. So we don’t want vendors to have the meat hanging in the stalls exposed to flies and the elements,” Kellman is quoted as saying by the Communities Ministry.The scope of works include the construction of 15 external stalls, the sanitary block and the administrative office, inclusive of a revenue collection section, the Ministry said.The new contract for the rehabilitation was awarded to BML Construction Services.last_img read more

B.C. Energy Conference in Fort St. John this week

first_imgIt all begins tomorrow with a tour of the simulated well site training facility at Northern Lights College, and a trip to Talisman Energy’s Farrell Creek Camp, followed by the welcome reception featuring a presentation by Preston Manning, founder of the Reform Party of Canada, and entertainment by local musicians Twin Peaks. A similar tour was given to the mayors of Prince Rupert, and Port Edward last fall, which Fort St. John Mayor Lori Ackerman says helped them see the realities of the natural gas industry in person. “Both of them said that coming up here was so valuable to them to see it in action so that the myths and the legends that they find on the internet or in the news feeds, they could dispel those myths in their own mind by seeing it hands-on,” she says. Ackerman argues the conference will be a success if it educates just one person who is uninformed about the energy industry in northeast B.C. – Advertisement -The conference part of the event begins Wednesday, with a variety of discussions taking place over the two days, focused on the theme of “Now or Never”. Topics range from the need for temporary foreign workers and the logistics of work camps, to the Site C Clean Energy Project and sustainable pipeline development. Some of the featured panelists are Senator Richard Neufeld, Paul Jeakins, Commissioner and CEO of the B.C. Oil & Gas Commission, Dr. Richard Florida, who was recently named among the “World’s Most Influential Thinkers”, and B.C. Lieutenant Governor Judith Guichon. Advertisement For more information on the conference, visit its official website at www.bcenergyconference.ca.last_img read more

Former Chelsea striker backs Torres to shine at AC Milan

first_img1 Fernando Torres in action for AC Milan Former Chelsea striker Hernan Crespo has backed Fernando Torres to shine at AC Milan despite his stuttering start to life in Serie A.Torres joined AC Milan from Chelsea on a two-year loan deal during the summer, but he has managed just one goal in nine appearances since making the switch.The Spaniard’s move to Milan echoes that of Crespo, who also left Chelsea for the San Siro back in 2004 after being deemed surplus to requirements by Jose Mourinho.Crespo endured a tough start to life in Milan, but the former Argentina international managed to turn things around and he has backed Torres to do the same.“If Inzaghi is convinced, I still think it is possible,” Crespo told Corriere dello Sport.“Even I arrived at Milan on loan from Chelsea and I was not in a great shape. The only thing I focused on was to work hard and utilise the opportunities that Carlo Ancelotti provided me.“At the end of the season I scored 18 goals for the club.”last_img read more

Ten-man Stars blank Ghana at Kasarani

PHOTO/Timothy OlobuluNAIROBI, Kenya, Sep 8 – Ten-man Harambee Stars produced an impressive result on Saturday evening beating four-time African Champions Ghana by 1-0 at the Kasarani Stadium to revive their hopes of qualifying to next year’s African Cup of Nations. Defender Nicholas Opoku’s own goal in the 41st minute proved the difference as Kenya upset the form books and did what most thought pre-match was a huge mission impossible. The win was impressive for Kenya who played most of the second half one man down following Joach Onyango’s straight red card on a tackle from behind.More so, head coach Sebastien Migne turned a few heads with his selection for the starting team.Black Stars player Daniel Amartey leads Kenya Micheal Olunga.

Kenya also made a forced change with right back Otieno coming off for Jockins Atudo after picking an ankle injury in the first half.Ghana had started on the front foot and after eight minutes, Afriyeh Aquah had a chance off a Daniel Opare corner, but he headed it across the face of goal from the backpost.Things went south for the hosts on the hour mark when Joash Onyango was shown a straight red by referee Janny Sikazwe after a tackle on Warris as the last man in defense.In response, coach Migne pulled out forward Johannah for defender David ‘Cheche’ Ochieng who slotted straight into centre back.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Wall Street extends losses, dropping 170 points

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWhicker: Clemson demonstrates that it’s tough to knock out the champA speech Sunday night by former Fed Chairman Alan Greenspan added to the market’s ill humor. Greenspan said “stagflation” – when inflation accelerates and the economy weakens – is a growing possibility, given last week’s data showing spiking consumer prices. With inflation on the rise, the Fed, which has reduced the target federal funds rate three times since the summer, might feel less inclined to lower rates again. Higher inflation is also a problem for consumers, especially during the holiday season. With only a week left until Christmas, sales data have suggested tepid spending by Americans, who are struggling with higher food and energy costs and tumbling home values. “The consumer is two-thirds of our economy. The consumer holds the key to whether we have a recession in 2008,” said Alfred E. Goldman, chief market strategist at A.G. Edwards & Sons Inc. in St. Louis. The Dow fell 172.65, or 1.29 percent, to 13,167.20, finishing near its low of the session. Broader stock indicators also declined. The Standard & Poor’s 500 index dropped 22.05, or 1.50 percent, to 1,445.90, and the Nasdaq composite index fell 61.28, or 2.32 percent, to 2,574.46. NEW YORK – Wall Street extended last week’s losses Monday as investors remained concerned about flagging growth and rising prices, and were skeptical that a special Federal Reserve credit auction will be a solution. The Dow Jones industrial average fell more than 170 points and all the major indexes lost at least 1 percent. Investors remained nervous even as the Fed offered $20 billion in 28-day credit through an auction Monday. The central bank will not release the results until Wednesday, but the aim of the auction is to encourage commercial banks to borrow from the Fed. That, in turn, is designed to boost banks’ lending to businesses and consumers and keep the economy humming. Last week, the Fed disappointed investors when it cut interest rates by only a quarter of a percentage point, which was less than some analysts expected. Wall Street is pleased that policy makers say they will keep trying to lift market confidence, which has dwindled since home foreclosures started soaring, but the market is so far unconvinced that the auction will be enough. Peter Cardillo, chief market economist at Avalon Partners Inc., said the market is also volatile ahead of Friday’s “quadruple witching,” a quarterly occurrence during which contracts expire for stock index futures, stock index options, stock options and single stock futures. The expirations magnified Wall Street’s mood, which has been downbeat because of uncertainty in the market about the effectiveness of the Fed’s actions and the overall economy. “It’s going to be a bumpy ride from here till the end of the year,” Cardillo said. President Bush in a speech on Monday said “there’s definitely some storm clouds and concern” because of the nation’s credit crunch and mortgage problems. Last week, the Dow dropped 2.10 percent, the S&P 500 fell 2.44 percent, and the Nasdaq lost 2.60 percent. Government bond prices rose as stocks fell. The yield on the 10-year Treasury note, which moves opposite its price, slipped to 4.15 percent from 4.24 percent late Friday. The dollar was mixed against other major currencies, while gold prices fell. Light, sweet crude futures fell 64 cents to settle at $90.63 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange. In economic data, the U.S. government said the current account deficit, the broadest measure of international trade, narrowed in the third quarter compared with the second quarter, as expected, to the lowest level in two years. The New York Fed’s Empire State Manufacturing Index fell more sharply in December than economists anticipated, while the National Association of Home Builders said its housing market index held steady in November at its lowest level since it started the index in 1985. Wall Street started 2007 soaring due to strong merger-and-acquisition activity but found little consolation in deal-making Monday. Diversified manufacturer Ingersoll-Rand Co. said it will buy air conditioner maker Trane Inc. for $10.1 billion.
