Football / Billy Sharp – A Goal From Heaven
« on: November 02, 2011, 07:50:03 PM »

http://awkwardlytalented.net/2011/11/02/billy-sharp-a-goal-from-heaven/

In the footballing world money can buy you the best players on the market, fancy cars, big houses, the best boots but one thing that money can’t buy and that’s class. Doncaster Rovers player Billy Sharp is a strong man and a man that great will, on Saturday he lost his two day old son Luey Jacob Sharp.

Two days after the death of his son Doncaster Rovers had a match against Middlesbrough in the nPower Championship, when players lose loved one they are always given a leave of absence, however Billy didn’t take it, instead he called up his manager and asked him if he could play.

    “He rung me and asked if he could play – he wanted to play. He wanted to score a goal for his son and his family and he was ready to go. When he said that to me I couldn’t really refuse.”

Sharp was back in the lineup after missing the match on Saturday against Coventry and was given the captain’s armband. Moments before kick-off a message was read to the supporters.

    “This is a minute’s applause to celebrate the short life of Billy and Jade’s son Jacob Sharp. “Born 27th October, taken by the angels on the 29th. Sleep tight son.”

14 minutes into the match and Billy scored a volley which opened the scoring in the match, he then removed his jersey to reveal a message that said:

    “That’s for you, son.

In football the gesture of removing your jersey to reveal something on your shirt is a yellow card but the referee on the day did not present one to Billy, a sign of respect. Doncaster went on to lose the match 3-1 but the real winner on the day was the family of Billy Sharp and football.

This is a moment that should never be forgotten by anyone seeing that Carlos Tevez who is paid £250,000 a week refused to enter a match as asubstitute because he didn’t feel like it and Billy Sharp who is paid £10,000 a week played despite tragedy.

Well Done Billy!

Rest In Peace Luey Jacob Sharp.

Football / Shearer - New Newcastle coach
« on: March 31, 2009, 08:14:21 PM »
Shearer takes boss reins for Toon

Premier League strugglers Newcastle United haved appointed Alan Shearer in a managerial capacity for the remainder of the season.

Current Magpies boss Joe Kinnear is currently recovering from heart surgery and he was due to meet cardiologists next Monday to determine if he is fit to return to the touchline.

However, it has been suggested that he could move to a role upstairs, possibly as director of football, and St James' Park legend Shearer has taken over the managerial reins from caretaker boss Chris Hughton.

The 18th-placed Magpies face Chelsea at St James' Park on Saturday, and have a tough run-in which features games against Stoke, Spurs, Portsmouth, Liverpool, Middlesbrough, Fulham and Aston Villa.

Shearer will be presented as the new manager on Wednesday morning


This could really backfire big time.
Shearer shoulda waited till next season at least.
If its true that is  :devil:

Football / Players who disappointed/failed at the International level?
« on: November 10, 2008, 09:04:07 PM »
Let we hear bout players who were real good at Club level but for whatever reason never lit up games played at the International level.

My picks are Ian Wright probably cause he never got a consistent sequence of games for England
and Dugarry from France cause he was a 1 in 10 finisher, same like Andy Cole.

Entertainment & Culture Discussion / Scorpions in T&T on Sept 23
« on: August 08, 2008, 09:06:09 AM »
A 75 foot stage with catwalk will be constructed at the Queen’s Park Savannah for rock legends Scorpions’ September 23 concert.

The German super group which has spanned three generations of rock will arrive in T&T on September 22 for the show, part of their current world tour.

According to Joey Sabeeney founder of Star Events Ltd—which is bringing the band to T&T—SEL’s historic Legends of Rock 2 concert features a number of “firsts” in various areas.

Local rock group Orange Sky—which is under SEL management and is now on tour in the US—will be returning home to “open” for the Scorpions.

Sabeeney said that since word of the concert broke in the T&T Guardian in May, regional and international interest from fans in Venezuela, Colombia, Guyana, St Lucia, Barbados, St Vincent, Antigua and Florida wishing to attend have been received fortified by requests for reserved tickets.

“Response has been phenomenal,” Sabeeney added, “Not surprising due to the magnitude of this group and the fact that T&T has been included in their world tour.

They’ve never been to the Caribbean and the T&T concert will therefore facilitate fans up and down the region.”

Stage construction will start around September 10 in the area near the Paddock, Sabeeney said.

The sound company handling the event (Johnny Q) also plans to make a statement via the show with an innovative design and roof top now being put together for the concert.

Part sponsor for the show is Carib with Radio 95.1 as the official station for the band’s visit.

In another first—an acknowledgement of the band’s global supergroup status—95.1 will broadcast live, the band’s arrival at Piarco Airport on September 22 and a reception at the diplomatic lounge.

The event also pioneers on-line ticket purchase (with postal delivery) through the following Web sites, Sabeeney said.

n www.stareventslimited.com

n www.caribbeanboxoffice.net

n www.the-scorpions.com

Tickets go on sale August 14 at Ruby Tuesday locations, Sound Research, Music.Com, Just CDs, Music Shak, Bee’s Chaguanas and Muzic Chamber

Orange Sky which will be the opening act for Stone Temple Pilots in Pennsylvania next week will return to the US after the Scorpions concert to continue their American tour, Sabeeney added.

A heavy police and special security presence will be in force for the Savannah concert.

Other Sports / Rally Driver Colin McCrae is dead
« on: September 16, 2007, 06:06:34 AM »
well ah now get up to watch the Belgian Grand Prix at Spa and see dat Colin died in a helicopter he was flyiing with 3 other people.
I always liked his driving style and attitude of taking risks.

RIP Colin..you going and hang out with some of the best up there who left early :beermug:

Rally driver feared dead in crash
Former world rally champion Colin McRae is believed to have been killed along with three others in a helicopter crash near his home in Lanarkshire.
The helicopter, which police believe was owned by Mr McRae, 39, came down on Saturday afternoon in Jerviswood, about a mile from Lanark, and caught fire.

Strathclyde Police said Colin McRae, a keen pilot, is thought to have been on board with three others.

However formal identification of those killed still has to be carried out.

Strathclyde Police said the damage to the Squirrel aircraft was so bad it was initially unclear how many people had died.

A police statement said: "Around 1610 BST on Saturday, 15 September 2007, emergency services were called to a helicopter crash in Jerviswood, east of the A73 at Lanark.

"There are no survivors."

The Air Accidents Investigation Branch (AAIB) has been informed and will carry out a full inquiry.

Police have been conducting a full scene examination and area search.


The Scottish Ambulance Service confirmed that its own helicopter had been despatched to the scene along with three ambulance crews, and the Strathclyde Fire and Rescue Service was in attendance.

An RAF helicopter was also put on stand-by to assist.

A spokesman for the British Airports Authority said the helicopter did not come from Glasgow or Edinburgh Airports, but its flight path is still unknown.

Colin McRae won the World Rally Championship drivers' title in 1995 driving a Subaru, becoming the first Briton to win the title.

He was also runner-up in 1996, 1997 and 2001.

He is married to Alison and has two children, Hollie and Johnny.

Entertainment & Culture Discussion / T&T TV Icon passes away
« on: August 18, 2007, 05:54:42 AM »
RIP Uncle Ian..thanks for taking the time to teach us  :'(
I will never forget Rikki Tikki

http://www.trinidadexpress.com/index.pl/article_news?id=161191360

Local television has lost another of its pioneers with the passing of Ian Ali, better known as "Uncle Ian".

Ali will be best remembered among those who were children in the 1980s, during which, as "Uncle Ian", he hosted one of local TV's most popular programmes, Rikki Tikki.

The 70-year-old media personality died of heart attack-related problems at about 7 p.m. on Thursday.

Ali had an unrelated medical procedure at the Eric Williams Medical Sciences Centre at Mt Hope on Wednesday.

He complained of chest pains and was transferred to the Westshore Medical Facility, where he had a pacemaker inserted on Thursday. He died later that evening.

Rikki Tikki was one of the first local shows for children.

As Uncle Ian, Ali's warm, buoyant personality was not the only thing that had captured thousands of local children-he also accompanied his many stories and discussions with one-the-spot illustrations.

As a teacher and artist, Ali's 40-year career, however, spanned several disciplines.

In 1962 he won a government scholarship to study art in the United Kingdom, where he studied at Bath Academy of Art, Sir John Cass School of Art and Hammersmith College of Art and Building.

He was proficient in painting, sculpture, design, fabric work, jewelry, pottery, commercial art and illustrating.

He was also a lecturer at the Government Training College for teachers and the University of the West Indies Summer Schools.

He served at the Ministry of Culture and as a teacher at the Point Fortin Secondary and St Augustine Senior Comprehensive Schools.

Ali also ran the Art Television Series.

For decades he was active in the Scouting fraternity and served as their National Commissioner for Communications.

He was one of the original judges for the Prime Minister's Best Village Competition, where he continued to judge for several years.

His impact remains in the art arena, in education, in the development of Carnival designs and studies and in the pioneering of art training on television.

Ali's love for his country was also clear in his work.

His 1970s television series Looking Around was among the first to bring to the nation images of such wonders as the leatherback turtle, the scarlet ibis and local historical architecture.

He would end each show with an enthusiastic "looking around".

Left to cherish the memory of Ian Ali are his wife of 47 years, Carolyn, daughter Jo-Ann and son-in-law Hakeeb, daughter Tammy, son-in-law David and grandson Liam, daughter Patti, daughter Judi-Anne and son-in-law Michael, as well his brothers and sisters and relatives in Trinidad and Tobago and abroad.

Football / You have an idea for the Warrior Nation?
« on: May 26, 2007, 12:31:29 PM »
Just wanted to share my personal opinion today, as a member of the Warrior Nation, concerning the Warrior Nation and some of the recent threads like Warrior Nation FC, Players Union, Protest action, etc.
These aren't the first good ideas proposed by people on this website and they surely aren't going to be the last, but they are in danger of being dropped like a hot potato just like the others before.

Lately, I've been watching everybody saying Warrior Nation should do this, Warrior Nation have to do that, why Warrior Nation didn't do this, why Warrior Nation moving so slow, etc.
I know people always in need and want instant satisfaction but the part that gets me is that the people saying all this not even members of Warrior Nation. Being part of this Sw.net discussion forum doesn't constitute being a member of the Warrior Nation.

If you have an idea or proposal for the Warrior Nation, there are channels to go through. We still make an effort to read what the public is saying but unfortunately going through these threads here and trying to pick up pieces of someones ideas here and there is very time consuming. We have now created a forum on the Warrior Nation website where members can constructively interact over ideas and problems without it descending into chaos.
 
How many of you know that there is a registration/renewal fee involved? The Warrior Nation cannot survive on 'talk', we need active members who can volunteer their time and services.
In reality it is just a few of us who barely keeping this Club afloat and I for one would not like to see all our personal time and money go down the drain.

Therefore people as I said before, please signup/register to help in the rehabilitaion of T&T football.


**The above statement does not generally reflect the views of the Warrior Nation Board of Directors.

General Discussion / Government Ministers abuse of Credit Cards
« on: May 20, 2007, 05:20:39 PM »
Bank statements concerning the Government’s individual travel card, held by Planning Minister Camille Robinson-Regis, show a number of transactions of US$1,000 each conducted at the American Fertility Clinic in New York in June, 2006.
The statements, produced yesterday by Opposition back-bencher MP Ganga Singh (COP), also show:
* Purchase of jewelry at Christies Sothers (New York) for US$6,420 on June 1, 2006

* Purchase of clothing at Max’s Better Dresses (New York) for US$259 on June 9, 2006

* Purchase of items at Bitz N Pieces (New York) for US$607.81 on June 9, 2006

* Purchase of items at Lighthouse Lighting Corp (New York) for US$3,118.99 on June 13, 2006.


Singh produced the documents after Wednesday’s Lower House sitting, when he quoted from a report of the Comptroller of Accounts.

The Comptroller’s report concerned contraventions of the Government’s individual (Visa Gold) travel card by 29 senior officials, including Robinson-Regis and seven other ministers.

Cabinet, according to Minute 2412 of August 26, 2004, approved the card for official overseas travel and local entertainment expenses for 120 government officials and holders of certain offices under the Salaries Review Commission.

The card has a limit of US$10,000 for government holders, and is issued by First Citizens Bank.

Singh had said on Wednesday that according to the Comptroller of Accounts’ report, Robinson-Regis had a credit card overdraft of $174,000.
Singh claimed that the money was used to buy jewelry, clothing and light fixtures.

Comptroller’s report

According to the Comptroller’s report, Robinson-Regis incurred an expense of $10,951 in April, which was described as “private use,” another in May for the same purpose, in the sum of $26,352.56, and the biggest in June of $176,453.59.
Robinson-Regis subsequently denied she had made improper use of the travel card.

She said the two large amounts were cash advances that were to put the card in credit to pay for medical expenses overseas. She said one could not take a large amount of cash to the hospital and had to put the amounts onto the card as a cash advance.
She did not state what medical treatment was sought. The credit card statement listed several transactions of US$1,000 each conducted at the American Fertility Service in New York for the period June 5 to 13. Robinson-Regis returned to work in April after giving birth to twins in January.

Robinson-Regis said Cabinet ministers were entitled to medical health coverage and expenses, and the card was used for this, and had “prior Cabinet approval.”

But Singh, providing the supporting bank statements yesterday, noted that several of Robinson-Regis’ card transactions involved the American Fertility Service at 115 E 57th Street Ste 500 in New York.

He also noted that Bitz N Pieces(New York) at Broadway, listed on the statement, is a leading wig and hairpiece emporium, according to Web site checks.

Christies’ Sothers, at 109 East 42nd Street in NY, is described as a jewelry store and Max’s Better Dresses at 851 2nd Avenue, NY, a women’s clothing store.

The bank statement also listed two cash withdrawals at the Independence Square ATM of FCB on May 23, 2006.

Item 7 on the list of 23 conditions between the Finance Minister and the cardholder states that the card is not to be used for private purposes or foreign entertainment.

Item 8 stipulates that no local cash advances are to be made with the card; however, cash withdrawals are allowed while on official overseas travel.

In excess

Item 9 states that the credit card limit must not be exceeded at any time without prior approval of the Minister of Finance.

The bank reserves the right to refuse such increases if the cardholder is in arrears by more than 30 days.

Unauthorised excess amounts are repayable immediately.

Item 15 stipulates that if there is an outstanding balance 30 days after the statement date, the Comptroller of Accounts will issue instructions to the relevant accounting officer to have amounts deducted from the next month’s salary up to the maximum of the net salary, any allowances and/or retirement benefits, until the total outstanding balance is repaid.

Singh said yesterday:

“The Hon Minister has indicated publicly that $26,000 and $176,000 were put on the card in order to pay for medical expenses, and that these expenses were approved by Cabinet, because Cabinet ministers were entitled to medical expenses.

“The credit card statement reveals a multiplicity of transactions of US$1,000 at the American Fertility Clinic in New York in June, 2006.

It is inconceivable that the terms and conditions of employment of a Cabinet Minister will provide for medical expenses for infertility treatment.”
Singh pointed out that the 80th Salaries Review Commission did not provide for the latter treatment.

“In fact, neither dental expenses nor optical expenses are covered by the SRC.

“Use of taxpayers money to deal with the infertility of a minister is an obscene and blatant breach of public policy.

“Use of the Treasury for such an intimate and personal procedure is no doubt abhorrent and disgusting to all right-thinking persons.

“No clear-thinking Cabinet could have allowed this.”

Saying that Robinson-Regis was a public figure paid by taxpayers, Singh called for her resignation:

“The data in the credit card statement demonstrates that Robinson-Regis has abused her ministerial office for which she must be held accountable.

“Purchase of the items in the statement represents a blatant breach by the minister of the agreement entered into with the Government.

“It represents use of taxpayers’ money for private purposes.

“Section 8 of the agreement prohibits local cash advances, but notwithstanding this condition, the statement points to two cash withdrawals at Independence Square FCB’s ATM.

“One does not need to be a prophetess to see that once taxpayers’ money is used to fund infertility treatment under ‘medical expenses,’ then one might expect ministers to be funded for cosmetic surgery and erectile dysfunction treatments.”

Ministry cover-up?

Singh also said a Finance Ministry statement on Friday, explaining reasons for the card, had not denied the veracity and integrity of the contents of the Comptroller of Accounts’ report he spoke about in Parliament on Wednesday.

The Finance Ministry’s statement reiterated some of the Cabinet Note’s content on the rationale for the card, noting difficulties experienced by government officials when on official business travel.

The Finance Ministry’s statement also stated that the report Singh spoke about in Parliament was “dated,” and that “any anomalies that may have arisen have been addressed or satisfactory arrangements made to address them.”

But Singh said:

“With respect to Minister Robinson-Regis, there is an entry in the Comptroller of Accounts that states, inter alia:

“‘Minister to PS Minister of Finance dated 30/01/2007 awaiting response.’

“So the report is exposed some three months after that entry. The exposure of abuse of power and misuse of public office, some three months later cannot be regarded as dated.

“There can be no limitations on the abuse of ministerial power.”

Describing the Ministry’s statement as a cover-up, Singh added:

“The ministry’s statement states that ‘any anomalies that may have arisen have been addressed or satisfactory arrangement made to address them.’

“What are those arrangements. What were those breaches?

“The ministry must come clean, as this issue is pregnant with abuse of power. Why was the Visa Gold card account of the Planning Minister not provided to the Auditor General’s Department, notwithstanding their requests for the same?”

The Finance Minister’s statement on Friday had noted that the card facility was subject to scrutiny by the Auditor General

Cricket Anyone / Chris Gayle - shoulda stayed home

Gayle queries West Indies curfew

West Indies batsman Chris Gayle has questioned the decision to impose a curfew on the tourists in England.
The Windies team management have acted following reports of ill-disciplined behaviour during the recent World Cup.

An 2330 BST curfew has been introduced and opener Gayle said: "I wouldn't agree with the curfew but it's team policy so you have to go along with it.

"If it was in my hands I would have let guys be more free and do what they want to in the lead up to the first Test."


The Windies face England at Lord's on Thursday in the first of a four-Test series, their first action since a poor World Cup campaign on home soil.

They will be without their prolific former skipper Brian Lara, who retired following the tournament, putting extra responsibility on the shoulders of Gayle.


 We've put the World Cup behind us now and are looking forward to Test cricket
Chris Gayle 

The left-hander, 27, has scored 4,259 Test runs at an average of 38.71 with seven hundreds, and is ready for the increased pressure.

"Without Brian it's a different feeling but all the guys have overcome it now and we have to step up and make a name for ourselves," he explained.

"There's always responsibility on my shoulders, not just as a senior player but as a batsman in the top order leading from the front.

"The young guys ask me questions and I share my views with them, my experiences playing here at Lord's as well.

"The senior guys have to lead from the front. Otherwise it might be a bit of a struggle. But having said that, we've got good quality players.

"We've got a good group. We've put the World Cup behind us now and are looking forward to Test cricket."

Football / Roeder Resigns!!
« on: May 06, 2007, 01:54:14 PM »
Glenn Roeder has resigned as Newcastle boss amid intense speculation over his future.

It is understood Roeder has walked away from St James' Park after 15 months in charge following Saturday's 2-0 home defeat by Blackburn which left the Magpies sitting 13th in the Barclays Premiership table.

The club is yet to confirm the development following hours of speculation that the 51-year-old was summoned to an emergency board meeting earlier on Sunday.

His decision came after days of rumours linking former Bolton boss Sam Allardyce with his job, although chairman Freddy Shepherd insisted he had not spoken to the man to whom he offered the position in 2004.

Glenn Roeder has resigned as manager of Newcastle United following an emergency board meeting at St James' Park.
His future had been the subject of intense speculation in the wake of Sam Allardyce's departure from Bolton, although Freddy Shepherd insisted last night that he had not spoken to the outgoing Wanderers manager.

He told the north east's Sunday Sun: "I have never spoken to Sam Allardyce. I don't know where all this is coming from."

But Roeder's situation was brought into sharper focus by yesterday's 2-0 home defeat by Blackburn which ended their faint hopes of European qualification and even left them looking at a 12th-place Barclays Premiership finish at best. Angry fans staged a prolonged protest against the chairman, the manager and the board following the match after booing the players off the pitch.
Former Newcastle skipper Roeder's reign at St James' Park lasted just 15 months. He was appointed on a permanent basis in May last year after guiding the club into the Intertoto Cup as caretaker manager.

Shepherd had to win the approval of his Premiership colleagues to waive rules which state that managers must have the Uefa Pro Licence, which ironically Roeder is now close to completing.

However, injuries to key players - Newcastle lost record signing Michael Owen for the bulk of a season before a ball had been kicked - and limited transfer funds tied his hands to an extent.

But performances on the pitch have not lived up to the demand of the success-starved St James' crowd with the team managing just one win in nine matches and failing to score in five. The crescendo of boos that followed the players off the pitch after defeat to Blackburn was effectively the death knoll for Roeder.

The fact that arch-rivals Sunderland clinched the Coca-Cola Championship title with a 5-0 victory at Luton today did little to improve the mood on Tyneside.



Roy Keane..anybody taking bets? :devil:

Football / Dynamic Duo: Gary Glasgow & Stern John
« on: January 17, 2007, 08:18:48 PM »
I think playing Glasgow is a step backwards period.
the fella had numerous chances in the past without making much buzz.
just cause he going to be top scorer shouldnt make him an automatic choice for future squads.

anybody knew how many chances he had in the 3 games?
