first_imgJamie Carragher has told talkSPORT John Stones should turn his back on Chelsea and stay at Everton.The England central defender is wanted by the reigning Premier League champions, who have so far had two bids rejected, but the Anfield hero has urged the 21-year-old to remain on Merseyside.Carragher told Drivetime: “Every player should want to play at the highest level and win trophies, play in the Champions League and play for his country. That’s the aim of every player. It’s just [a question of] what is the right time for the player to go.“I think the right thing for John Stones would be to play for another couple of years at Everton. He’s playing really well but you have ups and downs as a young player, especially as a defender where you can make a couple of mistakes, give away a penalty, and your confidence goes. That’s part of being a defender and learning your trade.“I think it would be better for him to know he’s almost guaranteed to play week in, week out for Everton, go through those times with Everton, and then when he eventually gets his move to a top English club, as he will do, he’ll be going there a bit more experienced, a better player, and a bit more mature in his game.“When you get to that really top level, any little mistake, anything that’s not quite right, can cost your team a draw, or you drop three points, and that can end up costing a team the league title, or seeing them knocked out the Champions League.“You don’t want to be learning on the job when you’re at a top club. I think it would be better for him to spend another couple of years at Everton and then make that move.”last_img read more

first_imgTHE DIRECTOR of Public Prosecutions is considering whether or not to bring charges in the case of Denis Donaldson, the former IRA and Sinn Fein shot dead by dissident terrorists in Donegal more than six years ago.The former senior Sinn Fein official had confessed to spying for police Special Branch and secret service MI5 just months before he was killed.Donaldson, 56, was murdered in his remote home at Classey, Cloghercor, outside Glenties on April 4th 2006. He had been operating as a British spy for 20 years and was shot four times in the chest, face, arm and hand in a rented cottage.Although there have been three arrests relating to Donaldson’s brutal murder, nobody has ever been charged in connection with it.Two were arrested in Donegal and a third man – a leading dissident – in Derry.Supt Michael Finan told an inquest in Letterkenny today that a file on the Donaldson killing had been submitted to the DPP.Further information had been sought by the DPP and given to him by Gardai, he said.The case was adjourned until September at which point Coroner Denis McCauley said he hoped to be in a position to have a pre-case hearing, if there weren’t any charges brought.Witness statements in the case were handed in by a state solicitor to the coroner today.The family’s solicitor Ciaran Shiels told Mr McCauley that they “took some comfort” from the terms of reference in which a future inquest would take place.This would include an examination of Mr Donaldson’s life whilst living in the North as well as information on all who met him in the days before his death in the Co Donegal cottage.DPP CONSIDERING CHARGES IN DONALDSON MURDER, INQUEST HEARS was last modified: March 21st, 2013 by BrendaShare 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:DPP CONSIDERING CHARGES IN DONALDSON MURDERINQUEST HEARSlast_img read more

Humble and kind just like Manny. And he could really fight.“His life story is somewhat epic like Manny and is dedicated as a fighter.
