Marsh heading to Finland on trial

first_imgCavalier’s attacking midfielder Chevone ‘Messi’ Marsh, who impressed at the schoolboy and Red Stripe Premier League levels, is set to jet off to a two-month trial stint with top flight Finnish outfit Kuopian Palloseura, having impressed club scouts two months ago. Twenty-two year-old Marsh represented Calabar High as a schoolboy and made his debut at Cavalier at age 11 in the Kingston and St Andrew Football Association (KSAFA) under-15 league. He has also featured for the club at the under-17 and KSAFA Super League levels. The tricky midfielder has developed over the last four years into one of the most talented players in the Red Stripe Premier League. Despite Cavalier’s relegation this season, club boss Rudolph Speid said his charge is one of the most destructive midfield players and deserves to take his career to the next level. “The fact that Messi (Chevone Marsh) was called up to the national team as one of four players to play in our premier league, alone says that he has impressed a lot of persons,” said Speid He explained that scouts were impressed with Marsh, and backs the player to continue impressing and making his mark. “I am pleased for him. He has been our longest serving player and I can only hope for the best for him because he has the potential to excel,” continued Speid, while stressing “he is one of the most destructive players in the premier league”. Meanwhile, in an email correspondence, Jarmo Heiskanen, managing director of Kuopion Palloseura, confirmed that his club would like to invite the Jamaican for a football trial from April 30 through to July 2 this year. The club has played in Finland’s top flight for 50 seasons and claimed five league titles, two Finnish Cup titles and one Finnish League Cup title. It is also called KuPS, and has finished runners-up in the league nine times and claimed a number of junior titles.last_img read more

Assault on our fundamental rights

first_imgDear Editor,With each passing day, APNU/AFC’s arrogance and contempt for the people of this country become more apparent. The latest assault on our dignity and fundamental rights by these neo-colonial political elites is their Cybercrime Bill and its obnoxious “law of sedition” clause.The law of sedition clause states that “a person can commit an offence of sedition if the person, whether in or out of Guyana, intentionally publishes, transmits or circulates by use of a computer system, a statement or words, either spoken or written, a text, video, image, sign, visible representation, or other thing that – brings or attempts to bring into hatred or contempt, or excites or attempts to excite disaffection towards the Government established by law in Guyana”. The penalty for persons charged under this law ranges from 4 months to a life sentence.This is nothing short of a fascist piece of legislation. It is a clear attempt by the Granger Administration to effectively shut down all criticism of the regime and its policies. It begs the question: What exactly do they have in store for this country that would require them to have such a draconian piece of legislation in place to control us when we oppose them?Granger had, from day one, demonstrated a tendency towards zero tolerance for criticism and opposition. However, it has intensified during APNU/AFC’s time in office. Recently, we witnessed the shocking dismissal of columnists Lincoln Lewis and David Hinds from the Chronicle, and now this “law of sedition” clause takes us to a whole new level by equating any expression of ideas, including by email or even a conversation, with exciting or attempting to excite ‘disaffection towards the Government’ for the purpose of sedition. According to this piece of legislation, this letter could be seen as sedition.It is interesting that the representatives of the ABC countries, who never miss an opportunity to bleat on about their love for freedom of speech — despite the fact that in reality they oppose it at every turn in both their respective countries and internationally — are silent on this bill.Beware of what our Government and their Imperial Masters have in store for Guyana. The signs are ominous. This legislation represents a very worrying and repressive trend. History has taught us that fascism is something that creeps up on you, until one day you wake up and it is too late.Sincerely,Gerald A. Perreiralast_img read more

City looks into bid for county fire service

first_imgLa Habra Heights will have to pay the county $3,500 as part of an agreement the council and county Board of Supervisors both must approve before the county will provide a formal bid. The three council members who voted to seek the bid said all they want to do is get more information to help them make a decision on where they should build a new fire station. “I’m looking for a hard number,” said Councilman Stan Carroll, who was joined in the vote to seek a bid by councilmen Layne Baroldi and Howard Vipperman. “It’s good to get information to add to the public discussion on where we’re going to locate the fire station,” Carroll said. “All we’re asking for is a quote. We’re not signing a contract. It’s just another piece of the puzzle. Carroll and others said they also were following the wishes of the public. Roy Francis, retired firefighter, said that petitions with 150 signatures have been collected in favor of seeking a county bid. LA HABRA HEIGHTS – The City Council has voted 3-2 to find out how much it would cost to contract with Los Angeles County for fire services rather than operate its own fire department. The action in the wee hours Friday came in a meeting that started Thursday night following an informal price of $4.1 million from Mike Dyer, chief deputy for the county Fire Department. For that amount, the county will provide one four-member engine company, and a two-person paramedic squad. The city now spends about $1.2 million for its volunteer fire department. But the two council members – Brian Bergman and Tela Millsap, who voted against seeking a bid, called it a “vote of no-confidence” in the existing fire department and accused the majority of delaying the decision on a new station. “It makes me wonder if it’s a stalling tactic,” Millsap said. Millsap also asked the majority if they would vote to raise taxes if the county bid came in significantly higher than what the city spends now. Carroll and Vipperman denied both charges, saying they support the existing volunteers. They also said there is no way the city would be able to spend more. Vipperman said he also isn’t sure the informal quote is a real price. He cited the fact that the county provides fire service to La Habra, where it has four stations, for nearly $6 million. Fire Chief John Nielsen, said he isn’t certain of the reasons for the difference, but one is that stations in La Habra also cover portions of unincorporated Whittier and La Mirada, allowing for the sharing of costs. But Bergman said he didn’t believe the city could get a lower price, adding the only way it would happen would be with significantly less service. “To think \ will come back at $1.7 million is a pipe dream,” he said. “If I sent an e-mail back with a $4.1 million price and came back with $1.7 million, I’d look like a fool. If it comes back at $1.7 million, you can throw a pie in my face.” mike.sprague@sgvn.com (562)698-0955, Ext. 3022160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Juve captain Buffon ‘sorry’ for referee rant

first_imgCristiano Ronaldo slotted home the penalty to give Real a 4-3 aggregate victory after the Serie A champions had staged a remarkable comeback to wipe out a 3-0 first-leg deficit at the Santiago Bernabeu.A fuming Buffon had raged that Englishman Oliver had a “rubbish bin for a heart” and should “sit in the stands with your wife, your kids, having your drink and eating your crisps”.European football’s governing body said the case will be dealt with on May 31.“After that match, I went beyond the limits with the things I said about the referee and I apologise for that,” said Buffon.“I am extremely sorry about that, as over 23 years of Champions League career, I was never sent off or suspended, so I feel that I behaved fairly and in a sporting manner with everyone.“If I saw the referee again, I would give him a hug and say that he should have taken more time with that decision in such an important game for us and for me,” said Buffon.“With the feelings, emotions and disappointment of the situation, I behaved in a way that was not usual for me.“The referee gave me a red card — which I still don’t understand — and you (the press) rather than focusing on my comments, should look at behaviour from the official that was not really consistent.“A few days later I was sorry to have offended the referee, because at the end of the day he is a human being who does a very difficult job.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Gianluigi Buffon was angered after being sent off in his last ever Champions League match © AFP/File / MARCO BERTORELLOTURIN, Italy, May 17 – Gianluigi Buffon on Thursday apologised for his referee rant after Juventus’s Champions League quarter-final exit against Real Madrid last month.The 40-year-old has been charged by UEFA over his comments about referee Michael Oliver, who awarded the Spaniards a late penalty and dismissed the Juve captain.last_img read more

Germany v Argentina preview: Messi’s Maradona moment or Muller magic in the Maracana?

first_img talkSPORT previews Germany v Argentina 1 The big day is finally here. The Maracana on July 13, 2014, and there isn’t a yellow shirt in sight. The dust has long settled on Brazil’s humiliating exit from the World Cup, and with the Netherlands also falling at the penultimate hurdle, only Argentina and Germany remain. It’s Europe against South America, Messi against Muller, and the third final of its kind. talkSPORT previews the big game…Head-to-head: Argentina have faced Germany (including the former West Germany) twenty times. The South Americans have won seven, while Germany edge it with nine victories, and the remaining four draws are shared between the two. Most importantly, of the two World Cup finals previously contested between the pair, each nation has a win each.GermanyWhat’s the story?Joachim Low has taken some time to find his best team, initially using a back four composed entirely of central defenders before moving Philipp Lahm back and adding Sami Khedira to the midfield. Up front, meanwhile, the coach has alternated between using Thomas Muller as his central forward, or the Bayern man in a wider role with Miroslav Klose in the middle.How they reached the finalJoachim Low’s men were drawn in a competitive group featuring Portugal, Ghana and the U.S.A, and they quickly dispensed of the Iberian nation – in principle their toughest opponents – thrashing them 4-0 in their opening fixture. Ghana proved to be more stubborn, holding the Germans to a 2-2 draw, while a 1-0 victory over the U.S.A ensured the central European nation topped Group G.In the knockout stage, Germany required extra time to get the better of a well-drilled Algeria side, but in the quarter-finals they were more convincing, eliminating France, who had looked strong in the early steps of the tournament. The big assertion of German dominance came in the semi-finals, when they swatted away Brazil like a pesky fly, hammering them 7-1 to earn a spot at the Maracana.ArgentinaWhat’s the story?Like Low, Alejandro Sabella hasn’t been afraid to change things in his quest to find the best eleven. After starting the World Cup with a back three and two wingbacks, the former Estudiantes man quickly scrapped that in favour of a traditional back four, asking Javier Mascherano to drop back as an auxiliary central defender when full backs Marcos Rojo and Pablo Zabaleta push forward. In the midfield Sabella has been equally experimental, toying briefly with Fernando Gago, before dropping him for Lucas Biglia, while Angel di Maria’s injury problems have led to the inclusion of Benfica man Enzo Perez in the Albiceleste’s last two games. Up front, meanwhile, injury concerns for Sergio Aguero have led to Ezequiel Lavezzi playing more often than he may have expected, while Rodrigo Palacio has been the go-to man from the bench. Lionel Messi has been an unshakable presence, unsurprisingly.How they reached the finalArgentina have taken some time to get going at the tournament, requiring a big second-half performance from Lionel Messi to defeat Bosnia and Herzegovina 2-1 in their group opener, then another piece of magic from the number ten to beat Iran 1-0. The Albiceleste looked better in their third game, a 3-2 win over Nigeria, but required a last-gasp Angel di Maria strike in extra time to get the better of Switzerland in the first knockout round.The addition of Martin Demichelis to the back four helped the South Americans to look much more stable in their 1-0 win over Belgium in the quarter-final, but for all they have grown at the back, their attacking prowess has dulled somewhat, with penalties necessary to edge the Netherlands in a laboured semi-final game.Click here to listen to talkSPORT’s live coverage of Germany v Argentina from 20:00 (UK time) on July 13…last_img read more
