Tottenham offensive by Lemar

first_imgIt should be remembered that the figure of Lemar becomes essential in this winter market for Atlético de Madrid, since the departure of the French is the key to the possible arrival of a forward that reinforces the attack of the Wanda Metropolitano team. The future of Thomas Lemar is increasingly far from Atlético de Madrid. The interest of several English teams to gain the services of the French midfielder is increasing and Tottenham seems to be the team that is closest to signing Lemar, in addition, the latest statements of the Cholo Simeone in a press conference have put the French in The exit ramp.According to The Independent, Tottenham has offered Atlético de Madrid a transfer until the end of the season with a purchase option of 60 million euros. The French midfielder’s loan would ‘cost’ the spurs about 6 million euros, as reported by the British newspaper. This is one more step the Lemar exit operation of the rojiblanco set, since before the interest of Tottenham and Arsenal was known, and now the figures are known. Lemar arrived at Atlético de Madrid last summer of 2018 after the payment of 70 million euros. In his season and a half in the rojiblanco set, the French has only scored three goals in 64 games, a performance that is not enough for Atlético de Madrid or Cholo Simeone, which have opened the exit door in this winter market.last_img read more

City Council launches “City Week” in observance of 175th anniversary

first_imgTo commemorate its 175th Anniversary, the Mayor and City Council (M&CC) officially launched its “City Week” celebrations on Friday evening at the Stabroek Market Square.At the launch, both youths and older citizens were treated to a musical explosion by several disc jockeys and the One Man Band.The Week, which is expected to start on August 19, 2018, will be one filled with various activities showcasing the diversity of the city.According to Georgetown Mayor Patricia Chase Green, the objective of Friday’s initiative is to bring awareness to the citizens of Guyana and to also have every citizen participate in the activities.“We have come a long way from when we were ruled by the Dutch. There were many complaints (for example)about the city flooding as soon as rain falls, so now we have gone from that era and we are now trying to improve in other areas as well,” the Mayor explained.It was also noted that before the week-long festivities commence, the M&CC will engage in a clean-up exercise in Georgetown, particularly around the Stabroek and Bourda Market areas.On August 19, the day will start with a church service at the St George’s Cathedral followed by an opening ceremony at Stabroek Market Square.Some of the other activities planned include an arts & craft exhibition on Main Street, a health fair, cocktail reception and a beachfront party at the Guyana Marriott Hotel.It was noted that most of the funding for these activities will be sponsored by several different companies. The “City Week” celebration will be branded and “promoted as a tourist attraction”.last_img read more

JUDGE GIVES DISABLED SINGER ONE MORE CHANCE IN DANGEROUS DRIVING DEATH CASE

first_imgA Co Donegal country and western singer who uses a wheelchair faces jail if he does not complete his community service sentence or get a medical report as to why he cannot do it.Mr Coyle appearing at an earlier court sitting. Pic by Northwest Newspix.Daniel Coyle, was jailed for four years and disqualified from driving for 20 years after pleading guilty to dangerous driving causing the death of his cousin Hugh Donegan in 2009. However his jail term was substituted for 240 hours community service by Judge John O’Hagan following a case at Letterkenny Circuit Court in 2012.But Coyle, 31, was brought before Judge O’Hagan again today after the probation services revealed that Coyle, of Clar, Redcastle, had completed just 20 hours of the 240 hours community service.Probation officer Ms Yvonne Lennox told the court that her office had given Coyle numerous offers of ways to complete the community service but many had not been taken up.He had been offered the chance to take part in a pro-social drivers course in which he could speak about dangerous driving to other participants but this was not taken up.It was also arranged for him to sing for old folks at the Buncrana Day Care centre, and although this was taken up on two occasions, he failed to meet other appointments.Mr Coyle had told Ms Lennox that he had recorded a CD for charity and the probation services were willing to give him some hours off his community service in lieu of this.However no evidence of any CD has ever been given to the probation services, she added.Barrister for the state, Ms Patricia McLoughlin, said the probation services were “at their wits end” trying to get Coyle to complete the community service.But Coyle had claimed that he was simply too unwell to meet the requirements of the community service sentence.Barrister for Coyle, Mr Peter Nolan said his client was physically incapacitated and also suffered a brain injury.Judge O’Hagan said he was disturbed by the situation and said it looked like Coyle simply wanted to walk away from what he described as “this dreadful situation.”He said he was prepared to give Coyle one more chance to come up with options or solutions as to how the remainder of the community service could be completed or a medical report as to why he is not fit to complete it.He adjourned the case until January 26th next adding that the case could be re-entered if there is any difficulty with Coyle in between.JUDGE GIVES DISABLED SINGER ONE MORE CHANCE IN DANGEROUS DRIVING DEATH CASE was last modified: July 28th, 2015 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:community servicedangerous drivingDaniel CoyleJUdge John O’Haganredcastlesingerlast_img read more
