Brendan Rodgers receives backing from rival Premier League manager

first_img Tim Sherwood and Brendan Rodgers 1 Tim Sherwood insists Liverpool are lucky to have under-fire manager Brendan Rodgers – and he could have managed Real Madrid.The Aston Villa chief has defended Rodgers amid growing pressure on the Anfield boss following their poor start.Villa go to Merseyside on Saturday looking to pile the misery on Rodgers who has seen his side earn just eight points from six games to sit seven points off the top of the Barclays Premier League.Rodgers took Liverpool to second in the league in 2014 and has vowed to fight for his Anfield future with the club denying Carlo Ancelotti had been approached about the possibility of taking over while Jurgen Klopp has been linked with the job. Sherwood, though, believes Rodgers remains a top manager.He said: “After that season they finished second, if they’d won the league could they have kept hold of Brendan Rodgers?“They would have tried everything – and they did, he signed a new contract after that.“All of a sudden he doesn’t turn into a bad manager, it’s fine margins. We might have seen him at Real Madrid.“Why wouldn’t we have seen him there? He’d have won the English Premier League with a team who hasn’t won it for God knows how many years. He would have been the hottest property in football. A week is a long time in this game, let alone a year. Because they got so close it intensifies the pressure. He’s paying the price for overachieving a couple of seasons ago.“It’s harder to be a manager now than 20 years ago with social media and faceless people have their opinions. There’s more pundits than players.”Christian Benteke has been denied a reunion with Villa for the first time since leaving in a £32.5million move in the summer with a hamstring injury and Sherwood, who has Idrissa Gueye (hamstring) available again, admitted Villa would not have let the Belgium striker go if he did not have a release clause.He added: “There wouldn’t have been a price the club would have taken if the clause wasn’t there. The clause was in there from previously and everyone looked at it and thought it was good money. I always knew that call was going to come.”last_img read more

Oprah, Gates visit high school

first_imgMicrosoft Corp. Chairman Bill Gates and talk show host Oprah Winfrey visited a high school on Wednesday, surprising some of its students. Gates and his wife, Melinda, spent about three hours at San Diego High School and met with nine students for an upcoming segment of “The Oprah Winfrey Show” about the billionaire’s school reform efforts. Wednesday’s visit was not publicly announced and reporters were not allowed on campus. Mark Toney, 42, said his 16-year-old daughter, Daejha, called him about the visitors. “She said ‘Dad, you’re not going to believe it. Oprah is here. I waved at her and she waved back at me,’” Toney said. The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation gave $11 million to the San Diego Unified School District in 2003 to reform three large high schools, said Music McCall, a spokeswoman for the district. The district used some money to divide San Diego High School into six smaller schools specializing in business, international studies, media, and science, among others, McCall said. “Instead of being at a big high school with 1,400 students, you’re at a school with 400 students where people know you better,” McCall said. “They learn more and get more out of school.” The goal of the program was to increase the number of college-ready San Diego high school graduates, particularly among low-income and minority students.

first_imgA Judge has issued a bench warrant for the arrest of a businesswoman after giving her 13 warnings to pay back a credit union loan.Judy Hannon was due to appear at Letterkenny District Court today to answer a summons for failing to comply with an installment order from 2010.Ms Hannon, 48, had been ordered to pay back €30 per week on a loan of €5,241 from Letterkenny Credit Union. However Ms Hannon, of Marcella House, Gortlee, Letterkenny, has paid back just €1,640 in those four years – the last payment being in February of this year.Solicitor for Letterkenny Credit Union, Mr Patsy Gallagher, said his client only brought members to court as a last resort.He said “It is not the policy of the credit union to seek committal orders but their hands are tied for over two years now.“There is a deliberate attempt not to engage and on the 11th hour to make a sporadic payment. The last payment was in February.“This simply cannot go on. Letterkenny Credit union has spent a lot of time and money intrying to get this woman back on track,” he said.Mr Gallagher also referred to the fact that Ms Hannon was a founding director of the Moolicious Food Company which had received significant grant aid.Defense solicitor Frank Dorrian said his client had genuinely mixed up her dates and was due to be in court.He said “The prospect of sending this lady to prison might not be a good fit considering her circumstances.”Judge Paul Kelly said he could not make a committal order against Ms Hannon unless she was present in court.Instead he issued a bench warrant for her arrest but warned that he will be disposed to a committal order in the case.Speaking after the case Mr Gordon Randles, General Manager of Letterkenny Credit Union, said that unfortunately this is an extreme case where all attempts to have on going communication with the member were exhausted.“The Credit Unions objective is at all times to work with members with respect to their financial position, but in this case the member has repeatedly failed to adhere to court orders and also to provide financial information requested by the court.“Letterkenny Credit Union only engage in the legal process for debt recovery as a last resort.”JUDGE ORDERS ARREST OF WOMAN FOR NOT PAYING CREDIT UNION LOAN – AFTER 13 WARNINGS was last modified: October 2nd, 2014 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:arrestcredit unionjudy hannonletterkennynon paymentlast_img read more

first_imgSinn Féin and United Left Alliance TDs walked out of the Dail in protest today as the Government handed over €700M to unsecured bondholders at Anglo Irish Bank.Padraig MacLochlainn and Pearse Doherty were among the TDs who walked out after the Government refused a debate on the issue.The Taoiseach told the Dáil he does not know the names of the bondholders who will benefit from today’s payment. He was responding to Sinn Féin’s Gerry Adams, who said there was a need for transparency.Deputy Adams asked the Taoiseach to get on the phone to the chairman of Anglo Irish Bank and tell him to withhold the payment.The Sinn Féin leader said the “golden circle is still in place”, claiming the chairman’s political allegiance as a former leader of Fine Gael who still keeps his TD pension and current salary.Independent Shane Ross asked the Taoiseach why the Government did not instruct Anglo Irish Bank to embark on a buy-back campaign of bonds. Sinn Féin was first to leave the chamber, followed by members of the United Left Alliance, led by Richard Boyd Barrett.“You will not even give the parliament the right to vote on the handover of all the money you have taken out of the health service,” said Mr Barrett.The Taoiseach said the ECB had refused a Government request not to hand over the money.The Taoiseach said he would love to say it was not necessary to pay the money, however when the Minister for Finance tried to negotiate with the ECB on the money it was not possible.“The position of the Government was clear in February when we were elected on a mandate to pursue growth and not default.” He was responding to Fianna Fáil leader Micheál Martin who quoted Government party promises that Anglo would not get ‘another red cent’.He said promises to burn the bondholders had driven down the price leading to a situation where today’s bondholders were getting double the return on their investment.He accused the government of failing to put the issue on the negotiating table.Follow us on www.twitter.com/donegaldaily Follow us on www.facebook.com/donegaldailySell anything on www.donegaldailyclassifieds.comUPROAR IN DÁIL AS DONEGAL TDs WALK OUT OVER €700 MILLION HAND-OUT TO ‘GAMBLERS’ was last modified: November 2nd, 2011 by BrendaShare 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:Deputy Padraig MacLochlainnDeputy Pearse Dohertydonegaldaily.comlast_img read more
