  • I wanted Origi to join Liverpool right away, admits Rodgers

    first_imgLiverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has admitted that he is disappointed at having to loan new signing Divock Origi back to Lille. The Belgium striker completed a £10million move to Liverpool on Tuesday, signing a five-year contract with the club, but was immediately sent back on loan to Lille as part of the agreement.Rodgers was delighted to secure the 19-year-old’s services, after being impressed with his performances at the World Cup. However, the Liverpool boss has admitted that he was gutted to have to loan back Origi to the French club for the upcoming season. “Well, firstly we are absolutely delighted to sign him because I genuinely think he has the real potential to go on and be a world class young player,” said Rodgers. “Of course, as the manager, he is someone that could have really helped us this season. “He’s 19 years of age, 6ft 2in, quick, strong and can score goals. But we knew part of the deal was that he was going back to Lille on loan.” 1 Divock Origi last_img read more

    first_imgMemphis Depay showed just why Louis van Gaal persuaded the Manchester United board to splash out £25million on the youngster during the Netherlands’ clash against USA on Friday night.The 21-year-old forward scored, set up another, and showed off an array of skills as he gave United fans plenty of reasons to feel excited about his impending arrival at Old Trafford.But the fine individual performance by Depay, who started alongside his new club teammates Daley Blind and Robin van Persie, was not enough to secure victory for the Dutch as they went down 4-3 in a thrilling encounter at the Amsterdam Arena.Check out the video of Depay’s display above, and see full match highlights below…last_img


    first_imgStewart and Barry give the thumbs up to being in Donegal!A plan hatched over a couple of pints in Australia has seen a Burt man travel almost 18,000 kms to compete in this weekend’s Donegal Rally.And not only that but Barry Callaghan has spent almost €20,000 bringing his own rally car with him.Barry, 29, has lived in Perth for three years and takes part in rallies across Australia Now he has spent the last nine months planning the trip along with his boss Stewart Liddle, 55.Dad-of-one Barry revealed “Like most things it kind of happened over a couple of pints one night and we couldn’t go back on it.“Myself and Stewart rally back in Australia and I am always telling him about Donegal and how brilliant the Donegal Rally is.“So we decided last October that we would just go for it and here we are,” he said. Barry’s 2006 Subaru Imprenza left Australia in March and only arrived in Ireland on Monday last.But while Barry didn’t leave his car behind, the same can’t be said about his heavily pregnant wife Keara (nee Barr) and son Matthew, 5.“Keara is due our second child in July and I told her that if she goes into labour not to call me.“Hopefully she can hold on until I get back but could you imagine having to fly back to Australia having spent all this money,” he laughed.Navigator Barry, who is a panel-beater with local Australian company Signhere Signs, admits that most people think he is mad spending so much cash on a rally. “Most people think I have a screw loose in my helmet.“But the reality is that the nearest rally to us in Australia is 3,000 kms away.“This is a little bit further and it’s going to cost a lot more but it’s a once in a lifetime thing – hopefully,” he laughed.Barry said he is also delighted to be able to get back to Donegal and see his friends and family in the village of Burt close to the border with Derry. “I’ve told Stewart to take it easy at the start of the race. I don’t want us going out on the first bend after all the time and money we have spent on our dream,” he added.Meanwhile another Donegal man, Glenn Alcorn, has also traveled from Australia to take part in this weekend’s event.BURT MAN TRAVELS 18,000 KM TO TAKE PART IN DONEGAL RALLY! was last modified: June 20th, 2013 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:Barry CallaghanBURTdonegal rallyStewart Liddlelast_img read more

  • Pochettino admits deadline day signings ‘will be difficult’ for Tottenham

    first_img Mauricio Pochettino has endured a frustrating summer in the transfer window Alderweireld was expected to leave Tottenham this summer after a contract dispute – but his move to Manchester United hasn’t happened Pochettino does accept how the lack of activity might be viewed externally, but is happy with the club’s vision.“Of course it’s difficult to understand for people in football that Tottenham didn’t sign or sell players, but sometimes in football you need to behave differently,” he said.“If we are happy with our squad and cannot improve our squad, sometimes it’s better to keep our squad together.“There’s no reason to not trust in our squad and no reason not to believe in our club or believe in what we can do.“The most important thing is we’re so positive and of course we’re going to challenge for big things this season too.” Cavani ‘agrees’ to join new club and will complete free transfer next summer 4 LIVING THE DREAM Top nine Premier League free transfers of the decade moving on Tony Cascarino backs Everton to sign two strikers for Carlo Ancelotti RANKED three-way race Chelsea confident of beating Man United and Liverpool to Sancho signing Kevin De Bruyne ‘loves Man City and wants to keep winning’, reveals father Latest transfer gossip on was heavily linked with a move to Manchester United but any firm interest never materialised.“We have a very good squad, with very good players and it is very difficult to add players to that,” the boss added.“We didn’t sell players and with 25 players in the squad it is difficult to add players.“It’s not about adding because it’s fashionable to sign players. It’s about if you really need them or not and then if you can get your target or not.“It’s true our targets are always the same level as Manchester United, Manchester City or Real Madrid but for different circumstances we can’t achieve that.“I am not worried, I am not sad, I am so happy. To keep our best players was our objective and goal and we have achieved that – at the moment, we will see what happens in the next 20 days in Europe.“If you can’t add a player that can improve your squad, the most important thing is to make sure you do not lose your best players and I think that was a great job from the club to keep the best players and the manager.” Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino has conceded it will be “difficult” for the club to bring in any new players before today’s transfer deadline. targets targets center_img REVEALED LATEST Arsenal transfer news LIVE: Ndidi bid, targets named, Ozil is ‘skiving little git’ Liverpool’s signings under Michael Edwards – will Minamino be the next big hit? Spurs have managed to keep hold of their top stars this summer Where every Premier League club needs to strengthen in January 4 Aston Villa were determined to keep Jack Grealish at Villa Park this summer 4 IN DEMAND Man United joined by three other clubs in race for Erling Haaland Spurs are the only Premier League club not to make a signing this summer, and the boss admits any arrivals are unlikely before the window closes at 5pm.Pochettino challenged the club to be “brave and take risks” at the end of last season, as they look to challenge for top honours.The club have been linked with a number of targets, notably Aston Villa midfielder Jack Grealish, who they had a £25million bid for rejected on Wednesday.But, with just hours to go until the window shuts, it looks like being a fruitless period for the club.The Argentinian said on Thursday afternoon: “I think it’s so difficult now because it’s only a few hours until the end and I don’t have news now.“It’s sure it will be so difficult. Always, until you finish the game, you cannot say, ‘Now it’s the end of the game’. But in four hours it will be difficult to sign some players.” TOP WORK 4 While their summer window will disappoint many fans, Tottenham have atl east managed to keep hold of their top stars, with a number of them even tied down to new deals.The window remains open to European clubs until the end of August, so there is still the possibility of players going out even after the English deadline passes.Toby Alderweireld, Danny Rose and Mousa Dembele could still leave in the next few weeks, but Pochettino has been able to keep hold of the likes of Harry Kane, Christian Eriksen, Kieran Trippier and Dele Alli.

    first_imgThe scene of the crashBREAKING Exclusive: GARDAÍ have arrested a 20-year-old man after a 60km chase through Co Donegal on Wednesday.The arrest came just hours after a man driving a Nissan Primera fled the scene of a crash in Letterkenny. The driver of the car he smashed in to had to be treated in hospital for several injuries.That suspect had been tailed by Gardai from Ardara on Wednesday afternoon after he was spotted driving dangerously in the area. But instead of pulling over the man – believed to be a resident of Derry – continued to drive at speed.Attempts to stop the suspect using a Stinger device failed with Gardai fearing the driver could cause serious harm to other road users.The subsequent chase lasted close to an hour and came to a sudden and dramatic end in Letterkenny.He drove into an Audi A4 on De Valera Road – close to Letterkenny’s fire station – at 4.20pm, injuring the driver. The suspect then drove off, but had to abandon his car and fled on foot, leaving one of his shoes behind.He entered Tobin’s garage where he demanded staff call him a taxi, but when they refused he ran off towards LYIT.The one-shoed suspect was apprehended close to the Polestar roundabout later.He was taken to Letterkenny Garda Station where he is being held overnight. ARRESTED!

Pic by Brian McDaid.Scenes of jubilation for St Eunan’s after they won the Donegal SFC title after defeating local rivals Glenswilly. Pic by Brian McDaidSt Eunan’s have won the Donegal SFC title after a close and hard fought win over local rivals Glenswilly.St Eunan’s were the better side and fully deserved their win, they perhaps would have won more comfortably, but were guilty of kicking a number of wides throughout the match.Glenswilly scored just one point from play and that was ultimately their downfall. St Eunan’s had some sensational performances with John Haran rolling back the years with a super performance at midfield and deservedly won man of the match.Rory Kavanagh, Conor Gibbons, Eamon Doherty, Conor Parke and Conall Dunne all shone for St Eunan’s in an excellent display.The game wasn’t a great spectacle, with Glenswilly adopting their blanket defence.St Eunan’s were patient in possession and wore Glenswilly down by continually attacking them down the flanks. Neil Gallagher put in a solid performance in the middle of the park for Glenswilly and turned over some great possession.St Eunan’s led by one point at the break, two excellent points from Conor Gibbons and three points from Conall Dunne (two from frees) had them in-front at the interval.Michael Murphy scored two points in the first-half, while Gary McFadden, who put in a solid performance, also pointed a free.Glenswilly’s only point from play came from Brian Farrelly, just before half-time although they strike the upright on two occasions in the second half.Scores were at a premium in the second-half, but it was St Eunan’s that managed to grind  them out. Sean McVeigh, Conor Park and two more points from Conall Dunne edged them over the line.Murphy and McFadden registered two points from frees.Murphy went into the danger zone for the final five minutes as Glenswilly tried to find that elusive goal.But despite a number of high balls into the area, Eunan’s brought men back into defence and crowded out the big number 14. It wasn’t the most memorable of finals but even neutrals would agree that St Eunan’s deservedly won this Donegal SFC title.Final score St Eunan’s 0-09 Glenswilly 0-06Maxi Curran celebrates with his family.
