Montano vs Yorke in court

http://www.trinidadexpress.com/20160216/news/montano-vs-yorke-in-court

SOCA star and 2016 Road March winner Machel Montano will be taking former national footballer Dwight Yorke to court as he seeks damages after he was falsely advertised as being one of the performers at Yorke’s annual Island Vibe fete in Tobago over the weekend.

This was revealed yesterday during a court hearing at the Hall of Justice, in Port of Spain, in which Montano was seeking an injunction to prevent Yorke from further using his name and image in the advertisements to promote the event, which took place on Saturday at Pigeon Point.

That same afternoon, Montano obtained an emergency order, which was granted by Justice Ricky Rahim, which restrained Yorke from promoting, advertising or publishing the alleged performance or any of his bands at the event.

No dispute and I certainly didn't mean to convey it as a negative trait.  I can assure you MM is far more vigilant and diligent than most soca artist in the same situation.

Machel Montano drops lawsuit against Dwight Yorke.
CNC3.CO.TT


Soca artiste Machel Montano has dropped the lawsuit against former national football captain Dwight Yorke, for the use of his name to promote a concert in Tobago.

Montano had filed the lawsuit against Yorke for falsely advertising that Montano was to perform at Yorke’s 'Island Vibe' party at Pigeon Point, Tobago.

Attorney Jacqueline Chang filed a notice of discontinuance on Monday on behalf of Yorke as the matter came up for hearing at the Hall of Justice, effectively ending the proceedings against Yorke.

Montano’s lead attorney Larry Williams said his client was not interested in seeking damages from Yorke, telling reporters, however, that there was a legal procedure to be followed after the injunction was granted to Montano to prevent Yorke from further using his name to promote the party.

Montano still has the option of taking legal action against Yorke for damages if he chooses to.

The real measure of a man's character is what he would do if he knew he would never be found out.

Former Red Devil Dwight Yorke keen to manage in S-League

Former Red Devil Dwight Yorke keen to manage in S-League
By Pan Zaixiang (The Straits Times)


Former Liverpool and Arsenal player Jermaine Pennant has already taken the first step in joining Tampines Rovers in the S-League.

Just last week, his ex-Liverpool team-mate John Arne Riise also issued a come-and-get-me plea to potentially interested S-League clubs.

Now, yet another former English Premier League player in the form of Manchester United legend Dwight Yorke is keen to make a foray into Singapore football, albeit in a managerial role.

"Right now, I'm looking to get into management and maybe a job of that nature will interest me to come to this part of the world," the 44-year-old, who scored 47 goals in 95 games for Manchester United, told The Straits Times.

"Everything in Singapore is fantastic from the great weather to the good food, and if there is a job opportunity from a managerial point of view, I might look into it."

The former Trinidad and Tobago player is in Singapore as part of Singtel's information and communications technology (ICT) contest, where six lucky business owners will get to host him alongside their customers at their shop-front on Friday and Saturday.

He also had a meet-and-greet session with fans at The Chamber at Capital Square on Friday afternoon, where he signed autographs and posed for photographs with about 100 supporters.

Yorke will continue his meet-and-greet sessions at The Chamber at Robertson Walk, Ciao at Italian Risto-Bar and The Bucket List Bar on Saturday from 4pm to 6:30pm.

Dwight Yorke says that he wants the Aston Villa job

Dwight Yorke says that he wants the Aston Villa job and that he has the backing of Sir Alex Ferguson
By Alex Varney (talkSPORT)


Dwight Yorke has urged the Aston Villa board to hand him the job of leading their revival.

The Midlands club are on the lookout for their THIRD manager this season after the departure of Remi Garde last week.

Garde, who only replaced Tim Sherwood in November, proved to be a disastrous appointment as he oversaw just two wins from 20 Premier League games.

With relegation to the Championship  all but confirmed, it appears likely that Villa will target an experienced coach to succeed Garde and plot their route back to the top-flight.

But former Holte End favourite Yorke, who scored 97 goals in 292 appearances for Villa between 1989 and 1998, insists he could be a big success as their boss if given the chance.

“They have tried experience, they have tried unknown managers, and they haven't got it right," he told talkSPORT in an exclusive interview.

“I have the feeling they may go for experience. I do believe experience counts for a lot of things but sometimes you need someone with the know-how of a football club and someone who can bring a spark back to the club.

“And what people fail to realise is that I have won the Championship. The only time I have played outside the Premier League I won it with Sunderland so I have got a great understanding of what the Championship is as a player.

"So, not only am I familiar with the players, and the whole culture and history of Aston Villa Football Club, but I am familiar with the Championship.

"I will apply [for the job] and I am doing that as we speak. I hope they will at least give me an interview."

And Yorke claims to have the backing of legendary former Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson to take on the job.

After leaving Villa for United in 1998, the Trinidadian enjoyed a hugely successful four years under Ferguson at Old Trafford.

He continued: "I have gained a wealth of experience, I have played under great managers and I spoke to Sir Alex Ferguson about this job and he is endorsing me.  He believes I can do it

"I believe I can do it and it is about giving me the opportunity of at least having an interview."

when, for how long, and how was it ? Look, if he get they job I glad for him, but I don't see why he should. The same reason why Bruce, Keene et al, shouldn't have been coaching big teams yet. Not because yuh was a great player with a great team, mean yuh deserve a chance, more than all the other guys who study, hard get lilbit money if any, and actually give up most of they life learning the business and psychology of the thing. I know plenty guys who actually pay dues coaching all they life (over 40 yrs), have plenty licence and experience and won't get a sniff. and I know guy with licence and degrees who don't coach well. This gimme fren ting , nah. Earn it . JMO 

Los, me not hating I not the employer. If they choose to hire the man I backing Villa, but I don't think he's the right man for the job. Obviously, They don't know who the right man for the job is. SH  *wink

The games that changed my life: Dwight Yorke
By Andy Mitten (fourfourtwo.com)


Dwight Yorke tells FourFourTwo about the matches which left an indelible mark on his career - including helping his nation qualify for their first World Cup and that night in Barcelona.

December 3, 1987: The Green Machine 1-2 Signal Hill Comprehensive
Trinidad & Tobago’s schools finals drew five-figure crowds. My reputation was building – I was already in the national team. We’d won the league, and in the cup final we beat Green Machine, a big side in Trinidad, which has 1.3m people. Tobago has 60,000, so we travelled as underdogs. Did I score? Of course!

March 24, 1996: Aston Villa 3-0 Leeds
I’d not been at Villa long when Tommy Docherty said in 1991: ‘If that lad makes a First Division footballer, then I’m Mao Tse-tung.’ By 1996 I was their main man, which brought pressure. I was expected to deliver in the League Cup final against a Leeds side full of internationals.
Thankfully, I scored in a 3-0 demolition. We came close to winning the league a few times, but two League Cups were my only trophies there.

November 25, 1998: Barcelona 3-3 Man United
This was my first game at the Camp Nou, a stadium which would comfortably seat Tobago’s population! They had Luis Figo, Rivaldo and Pep Guardiola, under Louis van Gaal, but we were playing great stuff.
Sir Alex told us to attack and we did just that. Andy Cole and myself combined perfectly and I got two goals. We knew we were a match for the best.

May 26, 1999: Man United 2-1 Bayern Munich
The highlight of my career. The game was nothing like as exciting as the semi-final second leg against Juventus – we didn’t create a clear-cut chance until injury time, when Teddy Sheringham and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer did their magic. We celebrated long into the night. I didn’t sleep for two days.

November 16, 2005: Bahrain 0-1 Trinidad & Tobago
People back home thought I was giving more to my club career than I was for my country – I was determined to prove them wrong and send Trinidad & Tobago to the World Cup finals for the first time.
I set up the goal, too. Caribbean people didn’t think I could lead as captain – I showed that I could. Our opening match was against Sweden in Dortmund. We were so proud to hear our anthem and see the flag. We drew 0-0 and I got man of the match.

January 20, 2007: Sheffield Wednesday 2-4 Sunderland
When Roy Keane asked me to join him, I’d been living in Sydney, loving life at 35. Then I was in the Championship thinking: ‘What am I doing?!’

We were in the bottom three when I joined but won the league comfortably and took 6,000 fans to places like Barnsley. At Hillsborough, I chipped the keeper as we won 4-2. I didn’t like the Championship, but I liked playing for Sunderland.
