first_img0Shares0000United go into the clash with the Spanish side following a morale boosting win over the Reds that put them in pole position to secure second position in the English Premier League behind Manchester City.LONDON, United Kingdom, Mar 13 – Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has said that beating Sevilla in Tuesday’s Champions League last-16 second leg will be more important than their 2-1 league victory over rivals Liverpool.United go into the clash with the Spanish side following a morale boosting win over the Reds that put them in pole position to secure second position in the English Premier League behind Manchester City. Mourinho emphasised the need for his team to retain their dominance internationally after winning the Europa League last season.The first leg tie between the two teams finished in a goalless stalemate in Spain, and United will be confident that home advantage on Tuesday night will work in their favour.“Tomorrow is more important than the win over Liverpool because Saturday was a match for points that we still have 24 more points to discuss, 24 more points to try to finish in the top four, to try to finish third, to try to finish second if possible,” Mourinho told reporters on Monday.“But tomorrow and Saturday against Brighton are the matches where, in the end, you go to the next draw or you don’t go to the next draw. So, of course, knockout becomes more important than league matches.”The Portuguese manager also downplayed his side’s chances to contest the European title, telling the media that United is not among the best teams in the competition.He added: “I don’t think we are one of the best teams in the competition. But I think when a team arrives in the last eight, anything can happen.“I think when you are in the last 16; it looks really, really far. But when a team gets in the last eight, you start smelling semi-finals and I think when a team gets into the last eight, the feeling is, of course, you are among the best.“But anything can happen, so let’s see what happens tomorrow. I think tomorrow is a very difficult match.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

They are required to participate in a play-off with FKF Cup holders AFC leopards on May 1 in Nakuru in a match that will determine who between them will play Hull on May 13. In the event that Gor win the tie and book a friendly date with Hull, Kerr is faced with a headache.“We are the league’s defending champions and the league leaders, so I think we should have been selected to play Hull. I don’t know why we had to go into this play-off,” Kerr posed.“Also, I am faced with a big dilemma because at this point, my focus is on the Confederations Cup to be honest. We play on the 6th away and the 16th at home and in between, we might be playing Hull City. I am left with a decision to make because playing against a Championship side is a huge opportunity for these players like we had with Everton last year,” said Kerr.Gor Mahia head coach Dylan Kerr analyzing the match as his side fluffed chances against Esperance of Tunisia in the first leg of the CAF Champions League First Round. Photo/RAYMOND MAKHAYA“I need all my best players to be fresh and injury-free for the Confed Cup and that means I will have to disappoint a few players by not playing them in this prestigious match if we get the chance. We also have the play-off to think about. Tough decisions await but I will take that responsibility as coach,”“I mean it’s a great opportunity and I thank the sponsors for that. It is football and we need to deal with how things come. I am optimistic we will find a way,” the tactician further stated.Hull who are also sponsored by betting firm SportPesa just like Gor and AFC arrive in the country on May 11 for a five day tour that will include football clinics within Nairobi with their visit ultimately culminating in a friendly match against either of the two Kenyan giants.“It is a great opportunity obviously for Hull to come and learn from the growing game in Kenya like Everton did last year and this is an opportunity for our players here to also learn from them,” Sportpesa CEO Ronald Karauri said on Monday.Cliff Kasuti of Sportpesa All Stars challenges for the ball against a Hull City select player. PHOTO/CourtesyHull Commercial Manager Joe Clutterbrook told the club’s official website: “This is a fantastic opportunity for the club and one we are all very much excited about. Whilst the match against either Gor Mahia or AFC Leopards is obviously the centrepiece of the tour, we are also very keen to engage with the local community in Nairobi, as well as experience the culture on offer.”While Gor will be left with huge weighing scales to look at, their opponents AFC Leopards will be salivating at the opportunity of facing the English side with their new coach Rodolfo Zapata.Chairman Dan Mule speaking to Capital Sport says it will be a momentous opportunity for his team which will work their socks off to beat Gor and get the opportunity.“We will do our best in the match. Now we have a new coach and we hope that by then he will have had time with the team and will be ready for the game,” Mule noted.The match will be staged at the Kasarani Stadium and just like they did with Everton in Tanzania last year, SportPesa have taken it upon themselves to renovate the playing surface to mirror the same quality that Hull have at their KCOM home pitch.This will be the second time a Kenyan team is facing a side from Hull. Last year, a KPL select team travelled to the English club’s home and played a friendly against their development side, losing 2-1.Meanwhile, the government has promised that the Kasarani Stadium which has been closed for renovation since January will be ready for the tie.The Moi Sports Centre Kasarani had a refreshed look prior to last year’s IAAF World Under-18 Championship. PHOTO/Raymond Makhaya“We are promising that this stadium will be complete. We are aware that there have been challenges but we will work closely with the contractors to ensure everything is in place,” Sports Principal Secretary Peter Kaberia said.He has also added that both Nyayo and Kinoru Stadia will be ready by June 1 with the Kinoru Stadium scheduled to host the Madaraka Day national celebrations. Initially, Kaberia had exuded confidence that the three stadia would have been complete by end of March.The completion of the three stadia especially Nyayo and Kasarani will be welcome news for Gor who have been playing their CAF matches at the Kenyatta Stadium in Machakos which has greatly dilapidated due to overuse.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Gor Mahia head coach Dylan Kerr reacts during a training session at the Camp Toyoyo Ground in Jericho on April 5, 2018.

first_img “Passing the bonds shows that the project is moving forward,” Deutschman said. “That would help in attracting private partners.” After years of lobbying, Antelope Valley officials were successful in getting the Rail Authority to plan the route between Bakersfield and Los Angeles through the high desert rather than along Interstate 5. The proposed Antelope Valley alignment would follow Highway 58 from Bakersfield to Mojave, then run south along the Union Pacific railroad tracks through Lancaster, Palmdale and Soledad Canyon and San Fernando Valley. Palmdale has spent nearly $600,000 studying and promoting the Antelope Valley route, which officials say would add just a few minutes to travel time but would serve 750,000 more residents than along Interstate 5. The officials also argued that the route would not require tunneling or raise as many environmental concerns as a rail line over the Grapevine.

However, there is a bill pending in the state Legislature to push that vote back to 2008. Assemblywoman Sharon Runner, R-Lancaster, said given the state’s bond indebtedness, the train system must be deferred in favor of other priorities. “We have some big issues with transportation and infrastructure,” Runner said. “We need to have safe highways to drive on.” Although the Rail Authority has not taken a formal position on such a delay, individual board members, including Donna Andrews and Joseph Petrillo, have spoken out against pushing back the vote, arguing that it would increase the project’s cost. Rail Authority spokeswoman Kris Deutschman said if the bond vote were to pass, there would still be several months before the bonds would be used. PALMDALE – A proposed high-speed rail system that would run through the Antelope and San Fernando valleys reached a milestone Wednesday with the approval of the project’s environmental study. Meeting in Sacramento, the California High-Speed Rail Authority board voted 6-0 to approve the environmental impact report for the 700-mile system running from San Diego to Sacramento. The next step will be a separate environmental study for the controversial corridor linking the San Francisco Bay to the Central Valley. Also to be done are more-detailed environmental studies for each segment of the system, looking at where stations would be built and where rail lines would actually be placed. At an estimated $37 billion, the system would be one of the most expensive public works projects in U.S. history. last_img read more

first_imgThe scene of today’s crashA YOUNG man fighting for his life after a crash may be transferred to a hospital in Dublin.The 23-year-old, from Cavanacaw outside St Johnston and originally from Lifford, is in a critical condition.His BMW crashed into a wall on the outskirts of Letterkenny between the Polestar and Dry Arch Roundabouts just before 1am this morning. Gardaí are furious at “ill-judged” comments today after their decision to close all four lanes of the main road into and out of Letterkenny.That’s because the accident occurred across all four lanes; and forensic investigators needed to examine the scene.At this stage Gardaí believe the motorist was travelling towards the Dry Arch roundabout when he appears to have lost control, skidded right across four lanes before coming to a halt after crashing into a wall.The incident forced Gardai to close the road which led to major traffic congestion for several hours. The tailbacks saw some people stuck in their cars for more than four hours.But Gardaí say they had a duty to close all four lanes in their efforts to establish a cause for the crash.Later this afternoon, two lanes of traffic re-opened as Gardaí continued their work at the scene.The scene of this morning’s crash. CRITICALLY ILL CRASH MOTORIST MAY BE TRANSFERRED TO DUBLIN HOSPITAL was last modified: March 20th, 2014 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:crashGardaiinvestigationletterkennytrafficlast_img read more

first_imgA high-action film about surfing and travel will be given a special screening next week in Bundoran – our very own surf capital. Risky Business is a surf film about big, risky waves from the four corners of the world. It stars South African professional big wave surfer Matt Bromley. The 25-minute film will be shown at the Eclipse Cinema Bundoran at 6pm on Friday 25 November.The fast-paced film captures the journey of South African surfer Matt Bromley and filmer Guy Macindoe while they travel to some of the riskier places on earth in their pursuit of surf perfection. Their amazing water adventures see them surfing between icebergs in Iceland, charging massive mountains of water at Jaws in Hawaii, and dropping into near-dry tubes over unforgiving ledges in Africa.The film shows the risks behind the reward of chasing global swells on a shoe-string budget, all the while living every surfers’ dream for a year between South Africa, Europe, Hawaii, Iceland and Indonesia.Risky Business will be inspiring the audience at Donegal’s coast in Bundoran to stretch the boundaries of their own capacity, flee their comfort zones, and chase all things bigger and better. The creators Matt and Guy both stretched themselves to make this film a reality; travelling in debt and in fear of not knowing what was around the next swell.All their equipment was stolen in Portugal and they suffered many other hardships along the way, but as Matt reports, “It was worth every moment of risk, and made the journey and experience that much more unforgettable.”Surfing film to make a splash in Bundoran was last modified: November 17th, 2016 by Rachel McLaughlinShare 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)last_img read more
