Paulo Gazzaniga the hero as Tottenham down Hornets on pens

first_imgDELE ALLI sealed Spurs’ shootout victory on his Milton Keynes  homecoming.The England star scored the vital  penalty after keeper Paulo Gazzaniga had saved efforts by Etienne Capoue and Domingos Quina.9 Dele Alli and goalkeeper Paulo Gazzaniga were the shootout heroes for SpursCredit: News Group Newspapers Ltd9 Dele Alli was spot on as he equalised for Spurs with just under ten minutes remainingCredit: News Group Newspapers LtdIt was a crazy end to a crazy night at a crazy venue where we saw three sets of supporters watched two teams score four goals in normal time.The last three came in the final eight minutes as Spurs trailed and then led before Capoue’s 89th-minute leveller.At least it made the journey to Stadium MK worthwhile for thousands of fans who were delayed by road and rail problems worthwhile.Mauricio Pochettino fielded a stronger-than-expected team, despite making eight changes from Saturday’s 2-1 win at Brighton and giving Harry Kane and Christian Eriksen the night off.9 Erik Lamela thought he had won it for Spurs when he fired them 2-1 up in the final secondsCredit: News Group Newspapers Ltd9 Isaac Success had given Watford the lead at MK DonsCredit: News Group Newspapers LtdMind you, he had to. Spurs took enough stick for moving this clash 50 miles without putting out a side full of kids.In fairness, Tottenham’s marketing department did a fine job of filling the stadium with as much club branding as possible to make it feel home.MK Dons followers might not have been too pleased — although AFC Wimbledon would call it karma! Tottenham even brought their own mobile club shop to compete with local vendors who did a roaring trade in half-and-half scarves.Though, surely, with around 1,000 seats snapped up by MK Dons season-ticket holders third-and-third-and-third scarves would have been more appropriate.Unsurprisingly for this most unusual of day trips, the atmosphere in the stands felt decidedly touristy.And on the pitch the match started like an exhibition game with neither team seemingly sure as to which should assume the role of the home side.Dele, the night’s main draw on his return to his former club, nearly gave the locals what they wanted to see when Lucas Moura’s volley across the face of goal was just too far ahead of the England midfielder at the far post.Watford’s ex-Spurs keeper Heurelho Gomes then got down well at the feet of Lucas Moura following his fellow Brazilian’s burst into the box.But it was the Hornets who finished the first half the stronger as Success fired a shot from the edge of the box down Paulo Gazzaniga’s throat before Marc Navarro tested the Spurs stopper from even further out.Spaniard Navarro was clearly just setting his sights as moments later his 35-yard curler flew just over the bar.9 Christian Kabasele was sent off for this foul on Dele AlliCredit: News Group Newspapers Ltd9 Paulo Gazzaniga saved twice in the shootout to earn victory for TottenhamCredit: News Group Newspapers Ltd9 The Hornets will be stinging after their cruel defeatCredit: News Group Newspapers LtdSpurs’ Toby Alderweireld then made a last-ditch tackle to deny Ken Sema a strike on goal just before the break.This should have shaken up Spurs going but they came out for the second half just as sluggish and went behind just 41 seconds after the restart.Isaac Success latched onto Kiko  Femenia’s pass and smashed a shot past Gazzaniga in front of the 4,000 travelling fans — plus 1,000 or so neutral ones!Femenia almost added a second goal just two minutes later as he shot straight at Gazzaniga.Full Premier League weekend preview including Chelsea v Liverpool and Man City v Brighton Dele, who was still known as Alli the last time he played a home match here, skied a volley way over and sub Heung-Min Son had a shot cleared off line by Ben Wilmot as Spurs looked doomed.But Dele levelled with an 81st-minute penalty after Christian Kabasele was sent off for bringing him down in the box.9 The Argentine goalkeeper came up trumps for Spurs in the Carabao CupCredit: News Group Newspapers Ltd9 Tottenham are now in the hat for Saturday’s fourth round drawCredit: News Group Newspapers LtdIt was ten-v-ten by then though as Spurs right-back Serge Aurier limped off after Poch had used all three subs.Erik Lamela then looked to have won the game in normal time for Spurs with an 86th minute strike after being played in by Mousa Dembele.But, incredibly, ex-Spurs midfielder Capoue made it 2-2 with a last gasp shot that was deflected off Ben Davies.Dream Team’s football agents give all the news from the Premier League match week 6last_img read more

Can Solskjaer bring the good times back to Manchester United?

first_imgYouth. Courage. Success? Those three words were used by Manchester United upon the summer arrival of Swansea’s Daniel James.Admittedly, the Old Trafford marketing team did not use a question mark at the end but right now you really need to as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer approaches his first full season at the helm.In the midst of their latest rebuild post-Sir Alex Ferguson, United’s 1999 treble hero is the man entrusted with getting the club back to the top of the English game.A surprise appointment as caretaker manager after the entirely predictable sacking of Jose Mourinho, the popular Norwegian’s hero status only grew during his record-breaking interim stint.Unfortunately for Solskjaer it proved to merely be a honeymoon as the players grew tired and some heads dropped, meaning United somewhat fittingly ended the campaign with a home loss to relegated Cardiff.The fact they ended as many points away from the Bluebirds as champions – and noisy neighbours – Manchester City highlighted the job at hand.The long-awaited appointed technical director has yet to arrive but the acquisition of Welsh speedster James from Swansea looks shrewd, as does the the arrival of rapid right-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka.There remains issues to resolve in central defence, central midfield and on the right wing, but United returned from their pre-season tour of Australia and Asia with an air of positivity.Comfortable wins down under against Perth Glory and Leeds were followed in Singapore by a 1-0 triumph against Inter Milan, when teenage sensation Mason Greenwood scored a fine winner.The 17-year-old underlined his first-team credentials during the tour to the point where Solskjaer talked up his chances of starting the Premier League opener against Chelsea, before likening his development needs to that of Ryan Giggs.Fellow United-reared youngsters James Garner, Tahith Chong and Axel Tuanzebe have shown signs of promise, while Angel Gomes grew as the tour has progressed and scored a superb winner in the 2-1 triumph against Tottenham in China.Scott McTominay is another academy graduate to show his quality on tour, where a high-intensity, speed-based play has been honed during intense training sessions and impressive warm-up matches.There has been a style, and at times a swagger, about United, who also have benefited from an on-form Paul Pogba as, despite his well-publicised comments about a summer move, the France international has knuckled down.Solskjaer wants him to play a key role in the coming season, but while the Norwegian may not have to worry about Pogba, he still has plenty of questions to answer.How does Alexis Sanchez fit into things? Will United manage to strengthen in key areas? When will David De Gea put pen to paper? Will Romelu Lukaku finally get his move?They all feed into the key question about how well United can do off the back of a tumultuous season.The youth and courage boxes certainly look likely to be ticked in 2019-2020. As for success? Well, we will have to wait and see.last_img read more

Smokescreen at local bank

first_imgDear Editor,A few weeks ago I went to cash a cheque at a local bank. I could not find my Guyana national ID card, so before I left home I grabbed my newly issued drivers’ licence. I have been using my new drivers’ licence to conduct financial transaction. However, my brother and several other persons had told me of the horrors they experienced at that bank, so as a precaution, I also took with me my Barbados national ID card.When I arrived at the counter I presented the cheque and my drivers’ licence. The young lady told me that the bank does not accept the new drivers’ licence at ID. I then gave her my Barbados national ID card. Much to my dismay, I was told that the bank does not accept national ID cards from other countries. At this point I asked to speak with a supervisor.The supervisor told me just what the teller had told me. So I asked the supervisor to please explain the rational for these decisions. She told me that she does not make the rules. In an effort to have the cheque changed, I suggested that she call the issuer (they have his number), so as to verify that the cheque was indeed written to me. I was thinking that with two pieces of ID’s and a phone call to the account holder, that would have been sufficient to prove that I was who I said I was.I was told in no uncertain terms that I would not be allowed to cash the cheque without my Guyana national ID card or my passport. I had to leave the bank and return with my passport.Last week I heard that one man had hundreds of millions of illegal money on his account. I would not be surprised if I heard that his account was at the same bank. These pathetic rules are only smokescreens.Sincerely,Pastor WendellJeffreylast_img read more

Hamilton Green’s distortion of history – setting the record straight

first_imgDear Editor,The media recently carried a letter penned by Mr Hamilton Green in relation to the tragic sinking of the Son Chapman due to an explosion in the Demerara River. This incident occurred on July 6, 1964.In his letter, Mr Green said he was not pointing a finger at anyone for what happened, however, his entire letter was pointing a finger at the PPP.In recent times, the PNC-led APNU has been trying to use this incident to whip up racism for political mobilisation. Racism is their main weapon to try to cling to power.Mr Green is aware that neither the enquires that were held, nor the colonial police, which at that time was working with the PNC to force the resignation of the Government of 1961-1964, ever made any changes against the PPP for that incident.Mr Green resorted to circumstantial evidence to prove his point.He insinuated that it could have been a reprisal for what occurred at Wismar/McKenzie on May 25 and 26, 1964. This is how he put it “… over 75% of the Indo Guyanese were roughed up and forced to flee their homes and businesses…”A worse understatement was never made. The “roughing up” that Mr Green spoke about were the dozens of persons killed, women and children raped. Many of the women had bottles rammed into them. Even little babies were torn from the hands of their mothers and murdered. Two hundred buildings, homes and businesses were destroyed completely. Many perished in the flames. This included the family of Senator Christine Ramjattan, who almost lost her sight and her father was brutally murdered.The first report on May 26, 1964, of the previous day’s events, put the amount of dead at twenty-seven (27) and forty (40) injured by gunshot, many of the forty died later. Of course, dozens more died on May 26, 1964, in that massacre.Mr Green wrote that that was a reprisal for what was happening on the Coast, mainly the East and West Coast of Demerara.That is just not true. Most of those who suffered death and destruction of their homes were Indo Guyanese. The death count just before the massacre at Wismar/McKenzie was thirteen (13) Indians and five (5) African Guyanese.The truth of the matter is that the PNC, with the support of the British colonialists through the British Police Commissioner, had gone on a terror campaign against PPP supporters.During the strike by GAWU for Union recognition that Mr Green spoke about, the police were used to harass sugar workers. The PNC supplied scab to Bookers to break the strike.PNC recruited thugs to go into villages to beat and harass sugar workers. They were often transported by Police vehicles. It is clear that the British decided to use the strike to create mayhem as part of the destabilisation. The PNC and MPCA were the main tools of the colonial master.While the colonial police facilitated the attacks on the PPP members and supporters, they prevented sugar workers who had formed committees to guard their villages from the frequent attacks. Many times the police, accompanied by thugs, arrested and delivered serious beatings on them. One at Blairmont was murdered in his yard. Needless to say, no one was ever arrested.The PNC X-13 plan that was exposed in this period was a terrorist plan to create as much violence as possible to prevent independence from being granted. It was in operation since 1962 but only exposed in 1964. It was that plan that was being executed by the PNC. That is why the British-controlled Police took no action to stop the violence directed against Indian and African Guyanese PPP members and supporters.Coming back to the Son Chapman tragedy, let me say that the most likely cause was accidental. I say this since if the PPP had anything to do with it, that would have given the British the condition to jail and disgrace the PPP and in particular, Cheddi Jagan. It is apposite to point out that by then a large part of the PPP leadership was detained without trial or even charged.What was known also, was that Son Chapman was ferrying explosives to Wismar/McKenzie, for a while before the PNC’s murderous rampage of May 25-27, 1964.The police had many reports of this. The Premier, Cheddi Jagan, told Peter Owen, the British Commissioner of Police, that he had information that this was happening months before the explosion in Son Chapman. And months before May 25 and 26, 1964. Of course, the colonial police paid no heed.Indeed, from all the papers that have been released from the US State Department and the British Foreign Office, we see how they were protecting the PNC leadership and their criminal acts. Even Mr Burnham, who was found with an illegal weapon in his house, was protected by the Governor. He ensured that the case against him was dismissed.Moreover, the papers revealed that the PNC via Mr Burnham was collecting money from the CIA that period to help with their organisation. That continued until 1973.The Governor even went so far as to decree that individuals or organisations who or which were found in possession of the PNC’s X-13 plan would face compulsory jail time. This was another demonstration of the British protecting the PNC in their efforts to frustrate the granting of independence.The question may be asked, where was the PNC getting the dynamite from. Those old enough would know that dynamite was the preferred explosive used by the PNC at the 1963 and 1964 riots.Recall that large quantities of dynamite were reportedly stolen from the quarries owned by Correa (A PNC legislative member) Martin Fredericks (he was a candidate on the UF list) and De Freitas (supporter of the UF). The police never recovered the explosives, nor were any arrests made.The amounts taken were large. Fredericks Quarry, for instance, lost 500 lbs. of Gelignite (dynamite), 2 coils of Fuse Wire, 1600 Detonators and 400 electric wire. This was reported by the police. The number of explosives taken from Corriea and De Freitas was just as large or even greater.It was those that were ferried up to McKenzie and were used in blasting buildings during the holocaust (using Burnham’s description) at that location. They were also used extensively on the Coast by PNC’s terrorists and in Georgetown in 1963, at Rice Marketing Board and the bombing of stores owned by Indian Guyanese.It was very clear that part of the cargo on the Son Chapman was dynamite from the stolen amounts.In passing, let me state that none of the explosives came from Demba Bauxite Company at McKenzie; their stock was not breached and all were accounted for.Historians can be sure that these explosives were in the possession of the PNC for the following reasons:In the yard of Mr Reid, who became number 2 in the PNC, dynamite and detonators were found. He was then in a senior position at Bookers and living in Bel Air Park. He was never charged.On March 27, 1964, an explosion took place in the house of Joseph London at Asylum Street, New Amsterdam. London was a PNC activist. He lost seven of his fingers in the explosion. He obviously had the explosives in his hands when it went off. When the police searched his house, they found “seven (7) sticks of blasting gelatine and ten (10) detonators with fuses.Finally, on August 17, 1964, the colonial Commissioner of Police, who collaborated and defended PNC thugs and terrorists, was forced to admit that it was acts of the PNC. He had to in light of many exposures that were taking place internationally, including the United Nations. Peter Owens said; “… enquires so far have revealed that there exist an organised thuggery which is centrally directed…” He later, in a sworn affidavit, stated that “… subversive and criminal activities of a criminal gang attached to a political party known as the People’s National Congress…” existed. This was the gang responsible for the destruction of that period.What action did he take? None. Instead, he used the occasion to further persecute the victims. A large part of the PPP’s GAWU leadership was detained without trial.These included the Deputy Premier Brindley Benn, Education Minister CV Nunes, President of GAWU, Harry Lall, General Secretary of GAWU, Phelomena Sahoye among others. Thirty-four PPP leaders were held at Sibley Hall in the Mazaruni River.Only Robert Jordon from the PNC was held. He was a Legislative Assembly Member for the Wismar/McKenzie Constituency. He was quickly released.For its part, the PPP never stopped fighting for a unity of the Guyanese people. Immediately after the Wismar/McKenzie massacre, the PPP in a statement said “Yesterday, May 25, 2019, Guyanese were given a foretaste on what they might expect from a Government constituted by a coalition of the UF and the PNC. In Wismar, one hundred (100) dwelling and business places were destroyed by fire and eight hundred (800) non-PNC-UF Guyanese became refugees from an area in which many of them had spent most of their lives.“It is a sad commentary on the quality of the UF-PNC leadership that by such going on as took place yesterday at McKenzie our Afro-Guyanese citizens are made to appear to the world as a ruthless and destructive mob whereas their whole history shows them to be a kind-hearted and generous people.”“Afro-Guyanese must surely stop now to think about the leadership they have been following and the direction in which they are being led. As was evident after 1962 and 1963, violence can only lead to economic stagnation and unemployment. The leadership of the UF need not work for a living it is wealthy, but the working people who follow the UF and PNC should look ahead to discover the faith of their future”.Mr Green knows all these things, he played a big part in it. It was in this period that he gained the reputation as being one of the PNC’s notorious strongmen.Distortions and half-truth will not serve any good purpose at this time. If our country is to heal, we need the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth!Isn’t it time to come clean Hammy?Sincerely,Donald RamotarFormer Presidentlast_img read more

Juventus target Arsenal forward and join Liverpool in race for Falcao

first_img1 Lukas Podolski celebrates winning the World Cup Juventus are hoping to seal a double loan swoop for Arsenal’s Lukas Podolski and Liverpool target Radamel Falcao.According to the Gazzetta Dello Sport, the Turin giants want to bring in both forwards before the end of the transfer window – and want them both on loan.Monaco hitman Falcao was a target for Liverpool before they stepped up their interest in Mario Balotelli although reports have suggested that the Reds are still monitoring the Colombian’s situation.Podolski, meanwhile, is yet to play for Arsenal this season after a World Cup winning summer with Germany and he faces a battle to get back in the team.Arsene Wenger is blessed with options down the flanks, where Podolski is primarily used by the manager, and it is unclear where he fits into the Frenchman’s plans.The 29-year-old has been heavily linked with a move back to Germany – with Wolfsburg reportedly close to sealing a deal – but now Juventus want to tempt him to Serie A with the promise of first-team football.Chelsea outcast Fernando Torres is also an option for Juve, but it has been reported that Falcao has become their No.1 striker target for now.last_img read more
