Johnson sees red as BT, Tivoli draw 1-1

first_imgThe two sides of Jermaine ‘Teddy’ Johnson were highlighted during  10-man Tivoli Gardens’  1-1 draw with Boys’ Town in round two of the Red Stripe Premier League  at the Barbican Complex yesterday. Boys’ Town who are utilising the Barbican Complex as their home field while the Collie Smith Avenue ground is being resurfaced, took the lead through Kimarley Fray two minutes after half-time break but Tivoli found the equaliser through Miguel Ricketts four minutes later. However, it was the behaviour  of out-of-favour national midfielder  and Tivoli captain Jermaine Johnson, that took centre stage as the player was sent off in the 75th minute. After a slow start Johnson gradually got into his game and was a handful for Boys’ Town’s defenders especially national full back Xavian Virgo. But at half-time, the controversial player got into a verbal clash with a spectator and attempted to jump the perimeter fence to confront the Boys’ Town supporter. Boys Town’s goalkeeper, Kirk Porter, in an effort to quell the dispute, was pushed to the ground twice by the former Bolton Wanderers player. The Boys’ Town spectator was also attacked by a group of  opposing fans. On the resumption of play Boys’ Town  went ahead in the 47th minute when Fray headed home from Virgo’s free-kick. But Johnson showed why he is one of the most feared attackers in the league as his dribble opened the Boys’ Town defence and Nickoy Christian crossed to Ricketts who slammed in the equaliser. However, 15 minutes from full time the player was fouled and not given the call, and he proceeded to verbally abuse the referee who responded by showing him the red card. Johnson’s behaviour did not go down well with most onlookers with coach Christopher Bender calling it ‘unacceptable’. “It is unacceptable. It is something that we have to talk about, we have to sit him down and let him know that as the leader of this club I will not tolerate or accept behaviour like that,” he stated.. Goalkeeper and senior player Edsel Scott called on his teammate to show more professionalism. “He’s the captain and he is my friend but you have to put friend aside, we have to know how to conduct ourselves. We look up to you, you play overseas so you have to carry overseas professionalism  here and guide the youngsters,” Scott said. Boys’ Town’s coach Andrew Price said he will have a word with the player. “Jermaine is a talented player and even at his age he has to be given the type of respect he deserves. But he and I are good enough friends and I will have a word (with him) about what happened today,” Price said.

Emery squashes Arsenal’s fruit drink cravings

first_imgInstead, the Arsenal manager wants the team to follow his lead and drink a healthier alternative.The Gunners picked up their first win with a 3-1 victory over West Ham, having lost their opening first two games under Emery to Manchester City and Chelsea.They face a trip to promoted Cardiff on Sunday, with former Paris Saint-Germain boss Emery insisting his new players are on board with his guidelines about what they should drink.“Yes, this is true,” he told reporters when asked about the drink ban on Friday.“I like fruit a lot and I like fruit juice. But with a lot of sugar? Not very good.“It’s for that and when I was very young, my father was coming every day with one fresh orange fruit juice.“I like it in my life, more of that. It’s for that, when I arrived here, I asked only for that from the cook. And the players, I think, are the same. They prefer their orange juice fresh.”Mesut Ozil, who missed the win over West Ham through injury, is fit to return at the Cardiff City Stadium following reports Emery had fallen out with the German midfielder over his failure to adapt to his preferred high-tempo pressing game.“He’s training normally with the group, in every session this week,” Emery said.“We started on Tuesday and every day he has been training with the group. He’s OK. Also I’m looking at him well every day.”Emery also confirmed Reiss Nelson is set to join German side Hoffenheim on loan for the remainder of the season, although he has also signed a new long-term Arsenal deal.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Arsenal’s Unai Emery has banned sugary fruit drinks from the training ground © AFP / Glyn KIRKLONDON, United Kingdom, Aug 31 – Unai Emery has banned his Arsenal players from high-sugar fruit drinks as he steps up his overhaul of the Premier League club in the post-Arsene Wenger era.Emery has asked Arsenal’s canteen staff to remove non-freshly squeezed juices from the club’s London Colney training base.last_img read more

Man City held at newly-promoted Wolves

first_imgIt appeared Wolves might inflict a first league defeat on the Premier League champions since City’s derby defeat to Manchester United in April.The home side exposed some chinks in City’s armour that will offer a glimmer of encouragement to the rest of the Premier League.Nuno Espirito Santo’s men weathered intense City pressure before claiming a surprise lead.And even though City shared the points thanks to an emphatic header by Laporte, the game threw up rare questions for Guardiola to answer.Having stormed to the Premier League title last season and started the new campaign in impressive style, life has been plain sailing for much of the past 18 months for Guardiola.In the absence of the injured Kevin De Bruyne, however, the composure his side so often display in attacking areas was sometimes missing at Molineux, although they still created enough chances to see off Wolves comfortably.Of more concern, perhaps, was the lack of solidity in defence, where Vincent Kompany and Laporte at its heart looked far from assured as a partnership.With John Stones left on the substitutes’ bench, there were signs that Kompany’s lack of pace and Laporte’s lack of experience could be exposed, although the young Frenchman looked like a seasoned Premier League campaigner when he thundered home the header to give his side a point.– Patricio save –A first half in which Wolves played their part in an entertaining spectacle was still, inevitably, dominated by the reigning champions, who struck the woodwork twice, once with the aid of a fabulous save from Rui Patricio.The Wolves and Portugal number one threw himself high to his left to claw a long-range effort from Raheem Sterling onto the crossbar on 22 minutes.That came shortly after Sergio Aguero had struck Patricio’s left-hand upright with a snap-shot from a Kyle Walker cross.That effort came from a break that followed a disallowed goal for Wolves, who had Raul Jimenez flagged offside after he had tapped home a cross-shot by Diogo Jota.Fernandinho fired narrowly wide for City and Ruben Neves did likewise for Wolves, with Boly making two fine challenges on Aguero as the opening 45 minutes failed to produce a goal.It was unusual territory for City, who then conceded a 57th-minute goal to add to their frustrations.Joao Moutinho’s delicious cross from the left skimmed the head of Matt Doherty and found Boly, with the ball finding its way into the bottom corner via his arm.City believed the opener might have been ruled out for either offside or handball and they were further agitated when David Silva was denied a penalty for what he felt was a shove by Doherty.But they were right back in the game when Ilkay Gundogan delivered a free-kick from the right and Laporte leapt above Boly to head home the equaliser from six yards.Had a stoppage-time free-kick from Aguero dipped under the crossbar instead of striking it, City would have forgotten their frustrations.Instead, Guardiola was left to ponder a number of issues after a rare disappointment for his all-conquering side.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Willy Boly’s controversial goal put Wolves ahead against Manchester City© AFP Geoff CADDICKWOLVERHAMPTON, United Kingdom, Aug 25 – Aymeric Laporte rescued a draw for Manchester City against newly promoted Wolves on Saturday as Pep Guardiola’s team dropped their first points of the season.The reigning champions were forced to dig deep to rescue a point on a day of mild controversy at Molineux, with Laporte’s header in the 69th minute cancelling out Willy Boly’s opener 12 minutes earlier that went in off his arm.last_img read more

Political malice spawns apathy

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORE11 theater productions to see in Southern California this week, Dec. 27-Jan. 2A Field Poll released over the weekend showed them in a statistical dead heat, with fully 25 percent of Democratic voters still undecided – the highest percentage this late in an election in six decades of polling. By the time final figures come in, most estimate Westly and Angelides will have spent a total of $80 million – much of it attacking one another rather than defining their vision for the state’s future to voters. “It seems to me that the message is muddied,” Democratic consultant Darry Sragow said. “It’s fundamentally a blur. You watch these ads and come away with the idea that there’s something wrong with them, but they’re indistinguishable.” Sragow attributes the contentious tenor of the campaign to an attempt to engage voters who distrust all politicians and are tired of elections. “We had a governor’s election in 2002, a recall in 2003, a presidential election in 2004 and a special election last year,” Sragow said. “Both these guys got as far as they could with positive ads and then did what was inevitable: … go negative.” As the 2006 primary election lurches to a conclusion today with a final blitz of ads, telephone calls and mailings, weary voters and politicians say it’s one of the most negative campaigns in years and likely to push apathy to new heights. The evidence is strong that the negativity has turned voters off. The Secretary of State’s Office projects a 38 percent turnout of registered voters – one of the lowest in California history, including only about one in four of those eligible to register. “Up and down the state, you are seeing more negative campaigning in more races than I can remember,” said Bob Stern, president of the Center for Government Studies in Los Angeles. At the top of the Democratic ballot, gubernatorial rivals Phil Angelides, the state treasurer, and Steve Westly, state controller – two intelligent, competent office holders – have turned their race into a political free-for-all that has left many voters frustrated and confused. Stern noted that the negative campaigns have not been limited to the top of the Democratic ticket. One of the oddest attacks came in a race for a state Senate seat in which former Assemblyman George Nakano, D-Torrance, accused Assemblywoman Jenny Oropeza, D-Carson, of refusing to send her children to Los Angeles schools. Oropeza has no children. And in the race for 43rd Assembly District, Burbank school board member Paul Krekorian and Glendale City Councilman Frank Quintero got to the point where they were sending out negative ads about each other’s negative ads. Stern said candidates have pulled out all the stops in an effort to capture the attention – or spark the interest – of voters. “Unfortunately, people don’t remember the positives,” Stern said. “And there is no pulling back these days.” Democratic consultant Kerman Maddox, who appears regularly on television as a political commentator, said even the usual gadflies haven’t become excited about the primary. “Being on television, people normally can’t wait to come up and tell me what they think about politics,” Maddox said. “This year, no one seems to care.” That point was driven home to him on Sunday when the candidates toured African-American churches as part of their get-out-the-vote effort. “No one cared who was there,” Maddox said. “People just don’t seem to care about it this year.” And other candidates or issues appear unlikely to generate widespread interest. There are actually eight Democrats seeking their party’s nomination for governor, and three little-known candidates are challenging Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger in the GOP. Voters also will be deciding the match-ups in the Nov. 7 general election for lieutenant governor, secretary of state, treasurer, controller, insurance commissioner, state schools superintendent and the Board of Equalization. There’s also a contest between former Gov. Jerry Brown and Los Angeles City Attorney Rocky Delgadillo for the Democratic nomination for attorney general. And there are dozens of congressional and state legislative races, as well as contests in Los Angeles County for sheriff, assessor and two supervisorial seats. There are two statewide ballot measures: Proposition 81, which would issue $600 million in bonds for library construction and literacy programs, and Proposition 82, an income tax on wealthy Californians to fund preschool programs for the state’s 4-year-olds. Rick Taylor, who is Maddox’s partner, said he is surprised at the lack of public interest given the issues across the nation – soaring gas prices, the war in Iraq and illegal immigration. “You would think an old-line liberal like Phil Angelides would have been able to tap into that, but neither one is really dealing with issues,” Taylor said. “Neither he nor Westly has staked out a position on something that matters to voters.” And if voters are expecting a reprieve after today’s balloting, Sragow said they should think again. “June 7 is the first day of the rest of their lives,” Sragow said. “You have an incumbent governor who is vulnerable at a time when Republicans are not looking too good across the country. “I wouldn’t be surprised to see Schwarzenegger do what incumbents in trouble normally do – beat the daylights out of his opponent. For Democrats, they will go on the attack immediately to bring their party back together and try to tie the governor to everything people hate about what the Republican Party is doing.” rick.orlov@dailynews.com (213) 978-0390160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Mamata calls Darjeeling hills political parties for talks on August 29

first_imgThe lowdown on the Darjeeling unrest  The hills have been facing a shutdown since June 15, which has severely affected the economy of the region and life has come to a halt.Attempts by the State government for holding talks to end the imbroglio failed, but the situation this time is different as many political parties in the hills are keen on talks.GJM leader Swaraj Thapa said the party will hold discussions on the issue before announcing their stand.  While Ms. Banerjee avoided any direct mention of the Gorkha Janmukti Morcha (GJM) — the outfit that is spearheading the Gorkhaland agitation — she said all major political parties in the hills are welcome to participate in the meeting.The development comes a day after the GJM made a request to the Central and State governments “to initiate talks at the earliest so that peace and normality can be restored in our region at the earliest.” Darjeeling unrest: The story till now West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Tuesday called political parties in the Darjeeling hills for talks to restore normality.Ms. Banerjee told journalists that she received a letter from the Gorkha National Liberation Front (GNLF), urging her to hold talks on the ongoing stalemate in the hills.

India wants to stop the export of its financial markets, or does it

first_imgIn theory, theory and practice are the same; in practice, they are not—or so goes the saying. This dichotomy is starkly seen in India’s policy missteps when it comes to developing vibrant and liquid financial markets onshore.The government’s stated policy is to curb the export of financial markets to offshore centres such as Singapore and Dubai. In fact, this was one of the reasons it promoted an international financial services centre (IFSC) in Gandhinagar. But in practice, recurring policy mistakes continue to help these offshore centres gain at the expense of onshore markets.After handing over large chunks of the exchange-traded index futures and dollar-rupee futures markets to Singapore and Dubai, India has set things up nicely for these centres to seize a sizeable share of the single stock futures market.Read it at Live Mint Related Itemslast_img read more
