first_img David De Gea Louis van Gaal will not change his stance over David De Gea with Sergio Romero again to start between the sticks for Manchester United this weekend.The Dutchman has refused to consider De Gea for selection amid speculation over a move to Real Madrid and summer signing Romero has played in the wins over Tottenham, Aston Villa and Club Brugge.Van Gaal has continually stated United’s Player of the Year could be welcomed back into the fold if a move to Real does not materialise, and his position remains the same.When quizzed about De Gea’s situation ahead of Saturday’s lunchtime visit of Newcastle, he told reporters: “I have said three weeks ago we shall evaluate after the first of September [when the transfer window closes] but you don’t want to listen!”Phil Jones is still unavailable for United because of mild thrombosis and Marcos Rojo is unlikely to feature as he still lacks match fitness.Van Gaal could hand a full debut to Bastian Schweinsteiger after three substitute appearances.“It is only a matter of time before he starts and maybe it will happen tomorrow,” Van Gaal said. 1last_img read more

first_img Burnley celebrate Burnley retained the bragging rights over east Lancashire rivals Blackburn as Scott Arfield’s second-half winner saw the Clarets come away from Ewood Park with a 1-0 victory.Having gone 35 years without defeating their neighbours, Burnley have now claimed back-to-back derby wins over Rovers.It was a harsh result for the hosts, who were the more creative team throughout, but their prolificacy in front of goal – with Tom Lawrence and Jordan Rhodes both squandering brilliant chances – was eventually punished by Sean Dyche’s men.Burnley registered only two shots on target all game, but Scottish midfielder Arfield made the most of his opening with a fine curling strike just after the hour.Rovers had a gaping opportunity to level moments later, but fluffed their lines again as Craig Conway struck the crossbar late on.The result temporarily lifts Burnley to second in the Championship table, while Blackburn remain in 17th, just two points above the drop zone. 1last_img read more

first_img1 Charlton owner Roland Duchatelet has abandoned plans to appoint Nebojsa Vignjevic as the Championship club’s new manager.Vignjevic was all set to be unveiled by the Addicks on Thursday following their decision to end interim boss Karel Fraeye’s miserable three-month reign.The Serbian is currently in charge of Ujpest, the Hungarian club also owned by the Duchatelet family.But Ujpest have now confirmed Vignjevic is staying put after Duchatelet backtracked on his decision to appoint another unknown foreign boss amid fears of a huge fans’ backlash.The billionaire Belgian businessman has employed five different managers since he took over Charlton in January 2014, all from within his network of clubs across Europe.None of those appointed have lasted long and the latest – Fraeye – has left the Addicks deep in relegation trouble after a run of nine games without a win.Supporters have been left dismayed by Duchatelet and chief executive Katrien Meire’s running of the club and staged a huge protest earlier this month outside The Valley boardroom.Duchatelet, who has only been seen at The Valley once since completing his takeover, was warned by club figures he risked increasing supporter unrest by bringing in Vignjevic.That forced him into a rethink and talkSPORT understands he is now looking to bring in a boss with experience of British football to try and appease supporters and rescue the club’s season.

first_img1 It was Mauricio Pochettino’s 100th match in charge of the north Londoners Mauricio Pochettino insists he does not regret fielding a weakened team despite Borussia Dortmund thrashing Tottenham 3-0 in the Europa League last 16.Harry Kane was left on the bench at the Westfalenstadion as Pochettino played Nacer Chadli up front and Ryan Mason and Tom Carroll in midfield and handed 18-year-old Josh Onomah only his fourth start of the season.The decision to rest some of his top players, with Mousa Dembele also on the bench and Eric Dier left at home, backfired as Marco Reus’ double and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s header all but ended Spurs’ hopes of progress.“No regrets,” Pochettino said.“I’m very disappointed with the result but we didn’t have a very good day. It was a bad day in the office.“When we analysed the squad and picked the starting eleven we tried to win the game. It started okay but it was a really bad day for us.”The defeat leaves Tottenham with a mountain to climb in the second leg at White Hart Lane but also means Pochettino’s men are now winless in three matches, following last week’s loss at West Ham and draw with Arsenal.A trip to bottom-of-the-table Aston Villa on Sunday offers the perfect chance to bounce back as Spurs look to resume a title challenge that has them sitting five points behind league leaders Leicester.“I am not worried, I know the circumstances,” Pochettino said.“We need to accept some periods during 10 months that we will have good and bad times. We have always had things good.“It has only been in the last few games not so much. The players are very sad but we have to take the positives.“We have a big challenge against Aston Villa on Sunday. We are in a very good position in the league and we will do our best.”Placed second in the table, Tottenham will hope to face similar opposition more regularly in the Champions League next season.But while similarities were drawn between the two sides’ style of play, league position and low-budget squads before kick-off, Dortmund demonstrated Spurs still have a way to go to compete with the European elite.“I think they had a good experience but we spoke yesterday and I told them that to play at the next level you compete with teams like Borussia Dortmund, which is a real test,” Pochettino said.“It was good for us to feel what a game in the Champions League feels like.“It was disappointing because the result was bad but to build a group for the next few years to compete at the level of Borussia Dortmund is very difficult.“We were disappointed but it was a very good test for us to compare the level.”READ: ‘Mauricio Pochettino has to take this one on the chin – he got it wrong’ – Tottenham fans on manager’s selection in Europa League defeatlast_img read more

first_imgSHELTERS: A dog lover spends $500,000 for the site that helps prevent animals from being killed. By Verena Dobnik THE ASSOCIATED PRESS NEW YORK – Sweet William, a young black Labrador retriever in Illinois, has two days to live. Sandy, a golden female Jindo in New York, also has just two days left. Kate Hepburn, a tan female boxer in California, has 18 days to live. “They don’t like doing this,” said Alex Aliksanyan, a pet adoption advocate who made money in the Internet travel business, “but they have to abide by the law, which requires a shelter to control its animal population.” Aliksanyan spent $500,000 of his own money to start The Buddy Fund Inc., a nonprofit organization that operates the site and is named after his miniature American Eskimo dog. “I’ve done well, and it was time to give something back,” he said. “So I thought, let’s bring the story of these animals dying quietly in these shelters to the public.” He hired six staffers to manage and market the site. Shelters post information about each dog directly, with daily updates and information on how each shelter can be contacted. Aliksanyan sends digital cameras and software for the task. A shelter can sometimes delay a dog’s death date – if it has room in its kennel and few new strays coming in. A death date can get moved up, too, if the shelter becomes overcrowded. The adoption service is free both for shelters and people looking for pets, allowing users to search by location, breed or time until death. The in-your-face site, Aliksanyan said, “is not a place to sit with your 6-year-old and say, `This one’s going to die; that one is going to die.”‘ He said he is driven by the philosophy of the Indian leader Mahatma Gandhi, whose words are posted over the “In Memoriam” page: “The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated.” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Each is tagged with a death date set by a shelter – and a countdown clock showing the days, or hours, until the animal is destroyed. Dogsindanger.com works with more than 120 shelters nationwide that destroy dogs. How much time the dogs get before death varies from state to state. In New York City, for instance, a stray dog must be kept a minimum of three days, while a shelter has the legal right to immediately destroy an animal that is abandoned there by its owner. About 4 million dogs are put to death each year in the United States, by injection or gas. In the three weeks since the site has been up, dozens of dogs have found new homes. Their photos are posted on a section of the site marked “Success Stories.” The images of dogs that didn’t make it adorn the site’s “In Memoriam” wall. last_img

first_imgDONEGAL SOUTH WEST TD Thomas Pringle today welcomed a commitment from the Government to examine ways of allowing traditional fishing methods in Inver Bay.Deputy Pringle has been lobbying on behalf of a number of fishing families who want to fish for sprat and mackerel in the bay using methods which are more than a century old.The Independent TD had asked Minister Simon Coveney to give the go-ahead for the practice to continue, arguing that claims the fishermen were also catching salmon just don’t add up. Deputy Pringle said today: “I tabled a question to Deputy Coveney because fishermen in Inver Bay who use traditional methods which have been in place there for over 100 years have been placed under severe pressure, particularly by the regional fisheries board.“This is because – perhaps both fortunately and unfortunately – the bay is partly formed by the estuary of a river in which salmon spawn. The regional fisheries board has tried to claim that the individuals to whom I refer are also fishing for salmon when they are out trying to catch sprat and mackerel.“However, they use completely different gear to fish for the latter and, therefore, the chances of their catching salmon are practically non-existent.“It is important that the type of fishing in which they are involved should be recognised as a traditional method. I understand there is precedent in this regard because a type of gillnet fishery exists in west Cork. “I welcome the fact that the Minister is going to consult the Marine Institute and the Minister for Communications, Energy and Natural Resources, Deputy Rabbitte. I look forward to a positive outcome in respect of this matter.”Deputy Simon Coveney told Deputy Pringle: “We are trying to be constructive with regard to this matter. If we can facilitate fishermen who use traditional methods, particularly in respect of specific stocks which fall outside the TAC system, I would be extremely anxious to do so.“Many restrictions are imposed on those involved in fishing in the context of effort, stocks, quotas and the tonnage that applies in respect of their boats.“If we can facilitate some flexibility in respect of allowing the use of other methods of catching fish which do not impact on vulnerable stocks, then I would be anxious to encourage this. However, we must ensure that we do our homework properly. The last thing I want to do is provide an indication that it is fine for fishermen to invest and commence fishing and then be obliged to clamp down on their activities in six months time as a result of a decision made by the European Commission.“What we do must remain consistent with the rules and the law. The reply I have given the Deputy is initial in nature and it suggests that significant opportunities exist if people want to pursue them.” DONEGALDAILY.COM – THE ORIGINAL 24/7 NEWS WEBSITE.

first_imgDONEGAL TD Pearse Doherty has called on the Government to do more to defend the seafood industry here in the wake of new Chinese restriction on Live Crab exports.Deputy Doherty made his comments following a decision last month by Chinese authorities to impose strict new limits on levels of heavy metal ‘Cadmium’ found in crab meat entering the Chinese market.Deputy Doherty told Donegal Daily today: “Naturally, access to the Chinese market for our crab exporters was a very positive development when it was first granted back in 2010 following bi-lateral co-operation between the Sea Fisheries Protection Authority and authorities in China.” “The Industry has subsequently expanded in recent years and Live Crab exports are estimated to be worth €3 million in value, which means that companies here have benefitted from having gained access to the Chinese market when selling their products.“However, following recent concerns which I’ve received from Irish crab exporters locally in relation to these new limits which have been imposed on consignments of Live Crab to China, specifically Brown meat Crab, I decided to raise the issue with Minister Coveney in which I highlighted the negative impact which these new restrictions would have on the industry here, and I asked him what assistance was now being provided to exporters to ensure that they would not be impacted by this development.”Response“The Minister responded by acknowledging the fact that exports have increased in recent years with the help of exports to China however, he said that the new limits were introduced in October following concerns raised by Chinese authorities about the levels of Cadmium in Live Crab shipments from Ireland.” “The Minister stated that the SFPA has notified exporters of these new limits and that the authority has informed them that the new rules pose difficulties for exporters to now obtain health certificates for Live Crabs intended for export to the country.”“The Minister also claimed that attempts have been made to raise the issue of these new restrictions with authorities in China in the hope that the limits would be reconsidered however, the Minister conceded that so far these attempts have been unsuccessful.”“Of course, while I welcome representations which have been made by the SFPA, and the Marine Institute with their Chinese counterparts, the government must take decisive action to resolve this issue.“It is essential that every effort is made to stand up for our industry here and to defend ours exporters who in recent years have successfully built a good reputation abroad for their products and who have become dependent on these overseas markets – including China – as part of their business operations.”“I will of course raise this matter with the Minister again and I will ask that he outlines what action he will take to ensure that our industry is properly represented in any future negotiations with Chinese authorities.” FEARS FOR DONEGAL EXPORTS AFTER CHINESE LIVE CRAB RESTRICTIONS was last modified: November 27th, 2015 by John2Share 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:ChinesecrabPearse Dohertylast_img read more
