Sparks begin life without Younghusband brothers

first_imgMOST READ “We are still in a good position to challenge for the inaugural PFL title,” said Roxas.“The absence of the boys (Phil and James) will certainly make a dent on our campaign but it can also be viewed by all of you as an opportunity to step up and chart your own destiny with this club and for Philippine football.”The Sparks gave the Younghusband brothers a traditional guard of honor before the match against the Aguilas. “They certainly deserve it for what they have done for the club and for their immense contribution to the growth of football in the country,” said Roxas. “We wish them both the very best in this new adventure.”Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next “Wanting them more (to stay) is not only based on the tangible stuff but also the intangible. The brothers knew they could always retire with Meralco and that was part of the reason they stayed this long.”The club official confirmed that they offered the Younghusband brothers, who have been with the club since 2011, a two-year deal “so that we can negotiate again after two years since we could not match what Davao was offering today.”The financial details of the Younghusband deal remain undisclosed, although the same club official confirmed that an agreement between the two clubs was reached last Friday. The Younghusband brothers still had a month left in their contract, but got their release from the Sparks after playing in the 3-2 win over the Aguilas in Tagum City last Saturday.FC Meralco Manila vice chairman Randy Roxas, in his pre-match message for the players, believes the Sparks can rise to the challenge without the brothers. ADVERTISEMENT Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

How Chicken Came To Town

first_imgChicken, one of the domestic fowls, cherished by most people today, once lived in the bush. It was a part of the fowl species of animals.  Chicken and Bush Fowl were counterparts and did everything in common until one day when their friendship took a different twist! Bush fowl and chicken had gone to search for food the fateful rainy day and though it had not started raining by then, they hastened to be where they would have enough to eat before the rains. For, during this time of year, the rain would be ruthless, once it began to pour and it would not pity anyone though; not even Chicken and Bush Fowl.  And so, as Chicken and Bush Fowl began to feed on bugs, earthworms and remnants of fruits left behind by squirrels, birds and monkeys, the once gay and promising sky soon became bleak and cloudy and in a breath-taking uproar of thunder, and there was an abrupt down-pour of a mighty rain amidst violent thunderstorm which threatened their survival. They soon became terrified and worried as to how to get back home.  All they could do that was to remain calm in the face of the eminent danger until the harsh rainstorm abated after soaking them down to their bare tender skins, as their feathers would no longer save them. It rained like what seemed like an eternity and when it finally abated, they were left shivering! Shortly after the cessation of the mighty rain, Chicken and Bush Fowl, the two best friends, began their sojourn for home. While en-route home, Bush Fowl suddenly had a thought. He thought that Chicken could go to town for firewood so that they could catch a fire to warm themselves afraid that they might die. But would Chicken be brave enough to undertake such an adventure, knowing not what lay ahead of him? It was quite obvious that none of them had ever come in close contact with a human being before; not even Bush Fowl himself! To go to town for fire was their greatest predicament! But one of them had to go anyway, no matter what, or the severe cold could be much harmful since the sky was still bleak, without any trace of sunrays to warm their bodies.  Howbeit, Chicken studied his friend’s suggestion, for it was rather a do or die affair! Either one of them would go to town for the fire, or both of them stay and die from the cold. Then Chicken, having given this suggestion a second thought, declared: “Yes, my friend I will go to town for the fire and let come what may; for God knows our plight and He will not allow me to fall into the hands of evildoers though I do not know the characteristics of the human race.”  “Bravo my friend! “Bush Fowl cheered him. “Indeed, you are a very brave fellow! May God be with you as you undertake this tedious task.”  By that, Chicken started his journey for town; the place where humans and other domestic animals like goat, sheep, dog and cat lived. But the true intent of Chicken’s visit to town soon turned otherwise though, when he approached the entrance of the town, Chicken observed women and children beating and fanning rice, as goats, sheep and cats went about their normal businesses while ducks and ducklings fed on the rice dust, as men split wood to add to the glowing fire hearth in the kitchen.  “Oh, what a happy and busy place this town is like!” Chicken now was surprise, and wished to be part of these happy and busy people and animals! No sooner did Chicken enter the town, when he started to feed on the scattered rice found on the ground around the place where women and girls were busy beating rice. The sun was shinning brilliantly in this busy town and there was no need for Chicken to find fire to warm himself. And so, as Chicken was busy helping himself, no one actually seemed to care about his presence in the town until late in the evening as Chicken was caught sleeping in a corner near the fire hearth in the Chief’s kitchen! But the Chief did not bother to raise alarm, for all he thought was that a Bush Fowl had mistakenly come to town and had been caught in the midst of the darkness and could not find his way back into the bushes. The Chief therefore “let the sleeping dog lie.” Yet, Bush Fowl was still anxiously waiting for chicken, his dear friend to return from town, but to no avail!  Bush Fowl then began to wonder as to what had really happened to his friend: Whether he had missed the road and was now wandering into the bushes and finding it difficult to find his way back home, or whether he had been simply captured by the townspeople, who were noted for not sparing any bush animal for that matter. They would soon make a delicious soup with it once it became victim to their vicious trap! Bush Fowl worried the more and in spite of his plight, soon forgot about what happened to them that fateful morning and did not sleep the whole night. He kept contemplating on what might have happened to his friend. But Chicken was apparently not worried as to what condition his friend was in. All he knew, he had found a paradise on earth and why must he return to his friend in the bush, a place of hardship.   “Let him remain where he is,” Chicken said, “poor him, and suffer for the rest of his life, thinking that I will carry fire to him.” The next morning, Chicken flew happily from the corner where he had slept the night before and was enjoying himself since no one ever asked him as to where he came from; not even the Chief and his wife, or his children! For all the Chief felt, he was quite a very lucky fellow indeed for a fowl to leave the bush and come to be with him and his family, without anything probably instigating him to do so. It was a wonderful occurrence in the Chief’s life as villagers from far and nearby towns and villages soon came to see the Chief’s new found wonder!  And as time went by, Bush Fowl decided to go to town in search of his friend. On that day, Bush Fowl took off for town and when he approached the entrance of the town, he became frightened upon seeing the number of people, cattle and huts in the densely populated town; and instead of reaching the town, Bush Fowl decided to call Chicken in the town from where he stood atop an old tree stump. And as Bush Fowl did so, he began to call: “ Kor-kweh, kor-kweh!” But Chicken did not pay heed to his friend’s call.  And all in all, this is how Chicken came to town, and remained while his friend, Bush Fowl is usually found calling him atop a tree stump. “Kor-kweh, Kor-kweh!”  Lesson: There are many friends like chicken today, who often forsake you when better days come their way, despite how long you might have struggled together!The EndShare this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

MICAT’s Ruling in LIMU Pre-Elections Case Falls on Deaf Ears

first_imgBoakai Fofana, Deputy Minister Technical Services at MICAT. The Ministry of Information, Cultural Affairs and Tourism (MICAT) has mandated the President of the Liberia Movie Union (LIMU) to reconstitute the election board and use the old constitution instead of the amended one in the pending elections in their ruling of the All-Star Movement VS Union Election Commission case.MICAT’s ruling, given by Boakai Fofana, Deputy Minister Technical Services, said after listening to both parties’ side of the argument, the Ministry ruled that the President of the Union, Martha Akorsah, reconstitute the election commissions before the pending elections can go into effect.Min. Fofana’s ruling also instructed the president to inform the next election commissions not to use an amended constitution, which has not been approved, to draw up guidelines for the conduct of the upcoming elections.“After listening to both parties, I noticed that the election commissions were in violation of the Union’s constitutions by drawing guidelines from the recently amended constitution, which have not been approved.“Therefore, we mandated the president to reconstitute the election commissions, who will now have the responsibility to set a new guideline which should come from the 2006 constitution for the conduct of the pending elections,” Mr. Fofana said. “Also, the election should not be decentralized and that the election of the various guild chair should be abolished because these clauses are not in the old constitution.”However, in response to MICAT’s ruling contained in a press statement, Martha Akorsah, the Union’s president, seemed unwilling to adhere to MICAT’s mandate and has expressed confidence in the current election commissioners.“Being complacent of our electoral procedure, the entire membership of the Union with the mandate from the president is leaving no stone unturned, to remove the election chairman Junior Pewee Russian or anyone who is not knowledgeable about our constitution and electoral guidelines.“Additionally, I’m mandating the election chairman and the team to proceed with the electoral process as slated for March 31,” Madam Arkosah said.The 24 counts of complaints filed by Frank Artus, the standard bearer of the All-Stars Movement, noted that decentralization of the Union’s election was unconstitutional and illegal and is intended to sway the result of the elections negatively.The complaints also stated that the commission’s actions to draw the guidelines from the amended constitution, which has not been approved clearly violate the constitution.Frank Artus in that complaint among other things said that the appointment of the commission was unconstitutional because the decision was unilaterally taken by the Union’s president without consultations of the National Executive Committee.The document also said LIMU’s election guidelines that called for a contestant for the presidency to be a  property owner with at least L$100,000 in his/her account; and that such a contestant’s parents should be natural born Liberians are illegal.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window) – Advertisement –last_img read more

Outstanding signing can help Arsenal win ‘big trophies’, claims ex-Gunners boss

first_imgPetr Cech can help Arsenal win ‘big trophies’ if he completes his move from Chelsea this summer, talkSPORT has been told.The Czech Republic goalkeeper, 33, is set to move to the Emirates in an £11million deal, despite Jose Mourinho being unwilling to let him join a possible Premier League title rival.But ex-Arsenal boss George Graham believes his years of outstanding service at Stamford Bridge should be rewarded, which will greatly benefit the Gunners.“There is a bit of loyalty at last,” he told the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast. “Sometimes it doesn’t happen in the game but he’s been very loyal to Chelsea and he’s been outstanding for them now for more than ten years.“He’s still got a few more years left in him yet. Goalkeepers can last well into their 30s at the top level and he is a top level goalkeeper.“Ideally [if you were Chelsea] you wouldn’t let him go but I think they’re rewarding him for his loyalty.“Let’s be honest, apart from the last few seasons, Arsenal have always had really good, top class, goalkeepers and that’s very important if you want to win the big trophies.”And Graham believes it’s likely shot-stopper Wojciech Szczesny will stay and be Cech’s understudy as David Ospina edges closer to a move abroad.“Szczesny will definitely stay,” he added.“There is more to come from Szczesny. He’s made mistakes in the past but he’s still young enough and the ruling of keeping homegrown players, even though he’s not English, [will see him stay].”last_img read more

Actor McSorley appears in court again after Newtowncunningham incident

first_imgDonegal-based actor Gerard McSorley has appeared in court again charged with threatening, abusive and insulting behaviour in Newtowncunningham.The 69-year-old, who played Fr Todd Unctious in the Father Ted comedy series, was brought before Ballina District Court in Co Mayo. He was arrested in relation to an alleged incident in Newtowncunningham, the day before.Gda Malachy Magee objected to the defendant getting bail.He told the court McSorley had three previous bench warrants for non-appearance in court and he had no permanent address.The officer added the former actor had been evicted from sheltered accommodation and was “absolutely not welcome back”.McSorley was estranged from his family and was “very much alone and vulnerable”.Solicitor Denis Molloy said Donegal was a county with numerous B&Bs and there was more accommodation than ever now the tourist season is over.Judge Fiona Lydon said the fact McSorley had no permanent address was not a deterrent to granting bail but conditions were imposed.McSorley must stay away from Trinity Court in Newtowncunningham except to collect his property, he must refrain from antisocial behaviour and inform gardai where he is staying.The defendant agreed to the conditions and thanked the judge.He was remanded on bail to appear before Letterkenny District Court next Thursday.Actor McSorley appears in court again after Newtowncunningham incident was last modified: December 17th, 2019 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:ACTORcourtdonegalFr TedGerard McSorleylast_img read more

Betting on football: why we enjoy it so much

first_imgFootball on its own is a brilliant game and followed by millions around the world. While having a flutter on a game used to be something just a few people did, now it seems that everyone who enjoys ‘the beautiful game’ has at least one betting app on their mobile phone. In truth, it’s the technology that has really changed how we place a bet. Better connectivity and improved technology means that betting companies can offer a lot more than in the past. And customers really love it. A useful site to check for some top rated bookmakers is hu-bonusz.comHere are five great reasons why we enjoy betting on football:1. It’s funWe’ll start with the simplest one first. Betting has become a lot more fun over the last twenty years. No longer do you have to skulk into a smoky betting shop on the high street to have a wager on a game. Technology has given the opportunity to bet to a whole range of different demographics who are just as excited as each other of winning their next bet. 2. It’s socialWe’ve democratised betting in a big way. Punters can sit together in a pub or at home, betting on their mobiles and having fun in a group rather than on their own. They celebrate each other’s successes and commiserate the failures. Groups can work together to improve their odds of winning and have a few beers at the same time. 3. There’s varietyOne of the big things that has happened over recent years is that the type of event you can bet on has widened considerably. It’s not just about who wins or who scores during the match. On some sites you can bet on the points difference, the timing of certain events, even how many fouls are committed. It’s also available for every game which gives many more options. That’s what makes it so exciting for football fans.4. Live streamingThis has been a big change for many customers. If they’re stuck somewhere or can’t see the match on satellite TV, many betting companies nowadays offer live streaming and prompts to place a bet so people don’t miss out. That means you can watch the match on your laptop or smartphone while still being connected to betting company, wherever you are in the world. Want to watch games? Check out for a list of bookmakers who offer sports streams.5. Great offersThe competition between different football betting companies is quite fierce. That means you can always find great offers with free bets and improved odds, particularly on big matches. That gives punters real value for money and even the chance to win big. Why it’s important to compare odds and offersWith so much choice for people who bet on football, keeping track of the offers and what odds are available is important. This is pretty challenging, especially when you need up to date information as quickly as possible. That’s why sites like are so useful. You can find all the best offers in one place and quickly decide where you want to bet and what you’d like to bet on. Quick comparison gives you the edge and if you want the chance to win more, getting your strategy straight and making the right choices is important.
