City end Newport’s giant-killing run to reach FA Cup quarter-finals

first_imgTroubled by the rutted Rodney Parade pitch, City were indebted to Ederson for a superb save to keep them level during a lacklustre first-half display.City eventually hit their stride in the second half and Leroy Sane’s powerful finish put them ahead before Phil Foden doubled the lead.Newport refused to surrender and Padraig Amond’s late goal could have set up a tense finale, only for Foden to net again 79 seconds later before Riyad Mahrez wrapped up the win.“It was a really tough game. We opened the scoring in the game and believed it was done. They showed us how incredible they are and a big compliment for them,” Guardiola said.“The home crowd was amazing, winning here, I understand English football today better than ever and how tough the cup is in these conditions.”With their Champions League last 16 first leg against Schalke to come on Wednesday, followed by the League Cup final against Chelsea, Guardiola made seven changes to the side which hammered Chelsea 6-0 last weekend.“You play League Two then Champions League. You have to adapt and change mentality and that means a lot to grow like as a team. The big mistake is believing you are better than anyone,” Guardiola said.“It is a mistake, like United are praised and better than PSG, but you see what happened. You have to be calm and prepare well.”The gulf between the clubs is enormous, with Newport’s squad costing just £50,000 and City’s totalling £450 million.But Newport had already knocked out Premier League side Leicester and Championship outfit Middlesbrough in the previous two rounds.Guardiola had warned City they would “suffer” at set-pieces against Newport’s “taller, stronger” players and the Spaniard’s fears were nearly confirmed in the 14th minute.Failing to deal with Mickey Demetriou’s long throw, City left space for Tyreeq Bakinson and he headed goalwards from close range, only for Ederson to dive to his right to make a brilliant one-handed save.Bothered by the unpredictable surface, left badly damaged by heavy use from two rugby unions teams as well as Newport, City were unable to get any momentum and another long throw ended with Joss Labadie lashing wide.Mahrez couldn’t hit the target with a series of half-chances and Sane grazed the top of the crossbar from an acute angle as Newport gamely reached half-time on level terms.– Brave resistance –Newport’s brave resistance was finally broke in the 51st minute, with Gabriel Jesus teeing up Sane for a fierce strike that smashed into Newport keeper Joe Day’s face before looping into the net.With 15 minutes left, Foden increased City’s advantage as his low strike eluded Day’s weak attempt to save.Amond punished woeful defending from Aymeric Laporte and Nicolas Otamendi to lob home from the edge of the area in the 88th minute.But young midfielder Foden went straight down the other end to blast City’s third and Mahrez slammed in the fourth in the final seconds.Brighton moved into the quarter-finals for the second successive season as goals from Anthony Knockaert and Jurgen Locadia clinched a 2-1 win over Frank Lampard’s Derby.Chris Hughton’s side opened the scoring after 33 minutes at the Amex Stadium when Knockaert bent his first-time shot into the bottom corner.The Seagulls doubled their advantage as Locadia fired home in first half stoppage-time after Yves Bissouma’s effort hit the post.Former Chelsea and Arsenal star Ashley Cole set up a tense finish when the Derby defender headed in after 81 minutes. Championship strugglers Millwall are also through to the quarter-finals after a 1-0 win at third tier AFC Wimbledon.Neil Harris’s side made it to the last eight for the second time in three years thanks to a fifth minute header from Murray Wallace, who scored their shock winner against Everton in the previous round.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Leroy Sane inspired Manchester City’s FA Cup win at Newport County © AFP / GEOFF CADDICKLondon, United Kingdom, Feb 16 – Manchester City powered into the FA Cup quarter-finals as the Premier League leaders survived a battling display from Newport County to beat the fourth-tier minnows 4-1 on Saturday.Pep Guardiola’s side didn’t have an easy ride in a full-blooded fifth round tie against a team 82 places below them in League Two.last_img read more

Terror bill lacks funds

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREGame Center: Chargers at Kansas City Chiefs, Sunday, 10 a.m.Among the six “no” votes were liberal Rep. Dennis Kucinich, D-Ohio, and South Bay Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, R-Huntington Beach, who called the bill “posturing.” “Is spending $20 million so people can talk more and pay for their hotel rooms and expenses really going to solve anything?” Rohrabacher asked. “I don’t think so.” Harman, a Democrat who chairs the Homeland Security Subcommittee on Intelligence, argued that the commission is essential to preparing for a domestic attack. “We need to centralize the best ideas out there for understanding this phenomenon,” Harman said. “When we are attacked again it will be by a homegrown terror cell. So we’d better understand how a homegrown cell is formed, and how does a radical change into a violent killer.” Harman became interested in the subject after Torrance police arrested suspects in a string of gas station robberies in 2005 and subsequently uncovered a prison-based Islamic cell with plans to attack synagogues during Jewish holidays. She held a hearing at Torrance City Hall on the issue, and invited Los Angeles Police Chief William Bratton and others to testify. When the bill was introduced, it included a grant program to fund local law enforcement initiatives to address the issue. That provision was later removed. As it stands, all the bill would do is create a commission to study the issue. After 18 months, the commission would cede its duties to a “Center for Excellence,” based at a research university. The bill, as passed, did not include any funding for the program. If the Senate approves the idea, some money will have to be allocated to make it a reality. Under the House’s “pay as you go” rules, Harman and her co-sponsors will have to find an offsetting funding cut before the program can be approved. Writing in CQ.com, National Security Editor Jeff Stein argued that the project is “redundant” because homegrown terrorism has been thoroughly studied both inside and outside of government. Harman and her allies, Stein argued, “could save taxpayers money by sponsoring a field trip to the local Barnes & Noble, whose shelves are groaning with tomes on terrorism.” In response, Harman said, “I take strong issue with that. ? The nub of this bill is to try to prevent radicals from becoming terrorists. I don’t think you can put a price tag on that.” gene.maddaus@dailybreeze.com 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

MAJOR BOOST AS 70 JOBS MOVE A STEP CLOSER FOR KILLYBEGS

first_imgBio-marine Ingredients Ireland Ltd (BII) has been notified by Donegal County Council of its intent to grant planning permission for its new facility.KillybegsThe move paves the way for the creation of 70 new jobs in the Killybegs, with an additional 50 jobs to be created during construction phase.This is a significant step forward for the ground-breaking €40 million project. The planning application for the new facility was initially submitted to Donegal County Council last July. Pending the approval of full planning permission, construction work could begin on the seven acre site at Stoney Hill Industrial Park, adjacent to the new pier in Killybegs by the end of the summer.“The Taoiseach recently launched the ‘Action Plan for Jobs 2015’ which places particular emphasis on balanced regional development and creating employment in the regions. This project fits very comfortably into that plan. We are very excited at the prospect of creating marine ingredients and high value human nutritional products from species such as blue whiting and boarfish.“We look forward to receiving formal confirmation of planning permission in the near future and delivering this enormous opportunity, which can take the Irish seafood sector to a completely different level,” said Bio-marine Ingredients Ireland CEO, Jason Whooley.The Chairman of Bio-marine Ingredients Ireland, Martin Howley added, “This innovative project can certainly be a massive boost for Killybegs and its hinterland. This town and County Donegal as a whole, is crying out for new employment opportunities so we are delighted at the announcement from Donegal County Council. As an area, we have suffered terribly during the economic collapse and our project can play its part, in helping the North West turn the corner. The prospect of construction jobs by the late summer is very exciting for everyone concerned.” MAJOR BOOST AS 70 JOBS MOVE A STEP CLOSER FOR KILLYBEGS was last modified: March 2nd, 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:donegaljobs boostKillybegslast_img read more

Simple steps can cut home energy costs

first_imgWith unseasonably cold temperatures this weekend, Southern California Gas Co. officials Friday offered several tips to keep comfortable and save money: The best way to keep winter gas bills lower is to conserve energy. When using the home furnace, lower the thermostat three to five degrees and turn it off when not at home. This can help save up to 20 percent of heating costs. Check the furnace filter monthly and clean or replace it to save up to 2percent on heating costs. Caulk and weatherstrip drafty doors and windows to save up to 5percent on heating costs. Use an extra blanket and turn down the thermostat at night as the weather turns cooler. Take shorter, cooler showers. For a family of four, a seven-minute shower a day per person could save about $30 on the monthly gas bill. Use cold or cool water when washing clothes to save up to 10 percent on hot-water costs. Fix leaky faucets to prevent hot water from being wasted. Run the dishwasher only when full. Have air ducts tested for leaks and seal any leaks to save up to 20 percent on heating costs. For more information on conservation and simple home-improvement tips, as well as energy efficiency rebates, call the Gas Co. at (800) 427-2200, or visit its Web site at www.socalgas.com.

TWO MEN ACCUSED OF EXTORTING MONEY FROM DONEGAL FAMILY

first_imgTWO men, who are accused of extorting €15,000 from a Buncrana family, have claimed they are being denied basic human rights in prison.Kevin Harkin, 30, of 71A Rosnagalliagh, Derry and Seamus Mahon, 34, with an address of 92 Altcar Park, Galliagh, both appeared in handcuffs in Buncrana District Court.The duo had spent the previous four nights in Castlerea prison after they were arrested at Ture, Muff on Friday last, April 22. They both appeared before a special sitting of Sligo District Court that night jointly charged with making an unwarranted demand to extort monies to the sum of €15,000 with menace from a local couple.However last Tuesday the men reappeared before Buncrana Court after being transported by prison officers from Castlerea allowing their solicitors to apply for bail.Solicitor for Harkin, Donnacha Cleary told the court that the Derry man would reside with his sister’s partner in Carndonagh and sign on regularly in Inishowen.Similarly solicitor for Mahon, Pat McMyler said there was a possibility that his client could live in a family property in Malin, which belonged to his father and uncle.The men claimed they had been denied human rights in jail as they hadn’t been allowed to shower or change their clothes since they were arrested on Friday.“No shower, no phonecalls and the same clothes since Friday,” said Kevin Harkin.“What about human rights? What about our human rights?” said Seamus Mahon.The court was told Harkin’s partner’s had brought a change of clothes to the court but was informed they could not be handed over.Superintendent Eugene McGovern stated the men were not permitted to take anyadditional property back with them to prison. He said the accused’s partners were welcome to bring the stuff to Castlerea Prison where a member of the prison service would examine it thoroughly.He said any other concerns were a ‘matter for the prison service’.Mr. Cleary said there was a certain ‘degree of rancour’ being shown towards the two Derry men.While Mahon’s solicitor Pat McMyler asked Judge Paul Kelly to direct that €50 could be given to the men by their partner’s to buy ‘a few cigarettes’ and items in prison.While, Judge Kelly said be believed that the claims that the prisoners had been denied showers was ‘not proper’ he added that this and Mr. McMyler’s calls for the Derry to be given cash was not a matter for the district court.Earlier in the hearing, Mr. McMyler raised concerns that he was not allowed to consult with his client in private. The prison officer accompanying the Derry man said he could not consent to allow Mahon in the consultation room in the courthouse claiming that it wasn’t secure.A clearly outraged Mr. McMyler did not accept this, adding there were bars on the window, with Judge Kelly adding that he was ‘entitled to consult’ with a solicitor in private.However Judge Kelly also accepted that ‘people had broken out of courthouses in this country before’.After inspecting the consultation rooms, Supt. McGovern said they were not suitable. He suggested that they could return to the Garda Station in Buncrana to allow them to consult with their solicitors in a secure environment.However, Mr. McMyler said this was unacceptable. He said everyone had the right to consult privately in the facilities in the Buncrana Courthouse and his client shouldn’t be treated differently.After some argument, Gardaí approved a private consultation in the rooms downstairs in the courthouse, which were deemed more appropriate.Regarding the bail application, Supt. McGovern told the court that the strenuously objected to bail given the seriousness of the charge. He said on conviction in the Circuit Court the penalty for the alleged offence of extortion was up to 14 years in prison.He described the ‘strength of the garda evidence’ against the two men as ‘extremelysignificant’.The Buncrana Superintendent also said that he had ‘significant concerns’ relating to the intimidation of witnesses connected with the case.He also revealed that he was awaiting DPP instructions on which court ‘venue’ the case would be heard.Regarding Mr. Harkin, Supt. McGovern said he objected to the Carndonagh address which Mr. Cleary had provided.Mr. Cleary said he didn’t understand the basis of the objection.“I am not aware of the strength of the evidence but I have an address, Mr. Harkin’s partner’s brother, Martin O’Connor lives in Carn and there is a room there for him.Mr. O’Conner says he is welcome,” said Mr. Cleary.“I’m not sure what the basis for the objection is – perhaps we could try and bridge the gap with the Gardaí in relation to their objection.”Mr. McMyler said he had an address in Malin for Mr. Mahon and would be able to gather cash for an independent surety, however that he would need time to arrange for money to be transferred. Supt. McGovern said he also objected to bail being granted for Mr. Mahon on any circumstances.Judge Kelly remanded the Derry pair in custody to appear before Letterkenny Circuit Court next Tuesday, May 3.TWO MEN ACCUSED OF EXTORTING MONEY FROM DONEGAL FAMILY was last modified: April 29th, 2016 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)last_img read more

CPA set to be launched to give club players a voice

first_imgA new Club Players Association is set to be launched in order to give club players a voice amidst growing unrest among club players all over Ireland.The issue of player welfare raised its head in Donegal again this weekend following Burt’s historic Intermediate championship win on Saturday.Burt were forced to play their first-round clash in the Ulster IFC on Sunday afternoon, less than 24 hours after landing the Donegal Intermediate crown after earning an extra-time win against Milford. That sparked massive anger and dismay amongst the GAA fraternity not only in Donegal, but also nationally, but unfortunately this type of incident is not an isolated incident.Now, the time for talking has stopped, as it seems nobody is listening to GAA club players.Club players believe the only way they can improve the club situation is to set up their own organisation, and it seems the CPA (Club Players Association) will be launched in the next three weeks.Former Monaghan selector Declan Brennan – who managed Clontibret to four county SFC successes – is one of the driving forces behind the new body and says he is acting out of concern for the welfare of club players. The aim of the new body is to give a voice to club players in the same way that the GPA represents the interests of county footballers and hurlers.“I think what most players – and remember intercounty players are club players too – want is a proper closed season where they can get the proper rest and plan their lives better,” he tells The Irish Independent.“There’s no doubt, players want to see the intercounty season condensed. I don’t have a mandate to speak on anyone’s behalf and I’m just trying to get this up and running.“But it will happen. We’re not looking for something like the Gaelic Players Association. We’re not looking for money from the GAA. We’re not trying to build anything for the future. The GPA has done great work but has become immersed in the GAA now.“We just want to pull people together, gather views and make those views strongly known. It’s not a long-term thing. Something has to happen within months.” CPA set to be launched to give club players a voice was last modified: October 19th, 2016 by Mark ForkerShare 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:AssociationBURTCPAGAAnewsSportwelfarelast_img read more
