  • Parkinson hails ‘best ever performance’ as Bradford stun Chelsea in FA Cup

    first_imgBradford City manager Phil Parkinson has hailed his side’s FA Cup fourth round victory over Chelsea as their “best ever performance”, after the Premier League leaders suffered a huge upset at Stamford Bridge.Having found themselves trailing 2-0 on 38 minutes, the Bantams hit back in style to bag four unanswered goals and stun Jose Mourinho’s men with a 4-2 win.The Yorkshire based club are known for their cup runs, after reaching the Capital One Cup final in 2013, but Parkinson believes this win ranks as the best display he has ever seen from his team.“To be 2-0 down and win 4-2 is what dreams are made of,” the Bradford boss said.“The way we played in the second half, I thought we were absolutely magnificent, we really took the game to Chelsea, a team that is so solid defensively, and we scored some great goals against them.“The magnitude of the victory in terms of beating the league leaders, and one of the best teams in Europe, has got to be the best performance overall.“The day we got to Wembley by winning at Villa Park, that would take some beating for the sheer scale of it, but I just think the performance here today, the way we played and the way we attacked, was just incredible.“It will be day that will be remembered for a long time.”last_img read more

    first_img Leicester boss Claudio Ranieri has hailed Jamie Vardy after the striker’s latest heroics against West Bromwich Albion. 1 Leicester boss Claudio Ranieri has hailed Jamie Vardy after the striker’s latest heroics against West Bromwich Albion.The England international scored for the eighth successive game in the Premier League to make it 11 goals for the season in the Foxes’ 3-2 victory at the Hawthorns.Vardy is just two games away from equalling Ruud van Nistelrooy’s league record of netting in the first 10 matches, which the Dutchman set at Manchester United 12 years ago in 2003.The comeback victory sent Leicester to third in the table, just three points behind leaders Manchester City, and saw their unbeaten away record remain intact.Ranieri said: “Jamie is just starting his career now. He comes from non-league but for him it is not too late to arrive at a high, high level. I wish all the best for him.“I have a very good feeling now, not only with the strikers or only with Vardy.“I feel very good here at Leicester with the chairman, with the family of the chairman, with all my staff, with all our players, all our fans. It is fantastic, there is a good electricity.The Italian manager also praised the Foxes supporters, and spoke of how lucky he feels to be with the club. “It’s one of the best atmospheres I’ve had at any club.

    first_imgGardai have warned that burglars are prowling around empty houses to find valuables to sell for Christmas.The warning comes after a spate of burglaries in houses across Letterkenny.Gardai do not know if the same gang is behind the thefts but the thieves have used similar methods to break into a number of homes. The gang remove beading from windows before carefully taking out glass and climbing through into the properties.Thousands of euro worth of property including laptop computers, cameras, phones and jewellery has been taken on raids on homes in Willowbrook and College Farm Road in recent days.One woman, whose home was burgled in recent days, told Donegaldaily.com that she felt sick by what had happened.“It was bad enough that all this stuff was taken but the thought that somebody was going around my house and going through all my stuff just made me sick. “It seemed like they knew exactly what they wanted. They took things they could sell easily like a laptop and a camera.“There was other stuff there, new stuff that I had bought for Christmas, but they just ignored that,” she said.The woman said she spoke to Gardai who told her that thieves were now stockpiling stolen items so they could sell them on for Christmas cash.BURGLARS TARGETING HOMES FOR CHRISTMAS CASH WARN GARDAI AFTER SPATE OF ROBBERIES was last modified: November 24th, 2011 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:burglariesCHristmasGardailetterkennylast_img read more

  • LUXURY ‘NO FLY’ CRUISE TO PORTUGAL AND SPAIN DIRECT FROM DONEGAL

    first_imgBeautiful LisbonYou won’t even have to make a trek to the Airport for a cruise this year, in fact you will be picked up by luxury coach in most parts of Ireland.Donegal based Travel Company JMG Travel and Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines have joined forces yet again to offer a 10-night exclusive cruise to Portugal, Spain & Gibraltar, departing from Dublin port in September 2013.Family-owned JMG Travel is the tour operating division of well known Donegal transport company McGinley Coach Travel and started to charter and offer cruise holidays in 2011. Fred. Olsen’s 880-guest cruise ship, Boudicca, is a modestly-sized, traditional style ship, with an excellent range of facilities and a friendly and relaxed onboard atmosphere. The ship and its crew offer a welcoming ‘home for home’ aboard that will appeal to Irish holidaymakers.The attractive itinerary begins with a relaxing cruise from Dublin on the evening of 13th September 2013, and a leisurely two days at sea; guests onboard have time to settle in and explore the ship, joining in with the many activities, watching live entertainment, or enjoying onboard lectures.The live entertainment will offer a great mix of music, comedy and cabaret, including some traditional Irish entertainment and music from Irish bands such as the Brose Walsh Band and Johnny Mullens.The first port of call is Lisbon, the attractive and compact Portuguese capital. Spread over seven hills on the north of the River Tagus, it offers a delightful mix of palaces, churches and art nouveau cafés, gardens and castles to delight the visitor.

This is a famous fishing port, with pretty streets and gardens to explore, where fresh-caught sardines are grilled and served in the many street cafés.The next port of call is the great seaport of Cadiz in Spain.

  • DONEGAL TD’S FURY AS CHILD PORN MAN WALKS FREE FROM COURT

    first_imgSinn Féin Justice spokesperson Padraig Mac Lochlainn has reiterated his party’s call for sentencing guidelines for judges after a man caught with 7,000 child pornography images was allowed to walk free after being given a suspended sentence last week.Deputy Mac Lochlainn said: “When people see sex offenders walk free after being convicted there is genuine anger and rightly so.  People demand answers.  They want to know why someone who was caught with 7,000 child pornography images is not given a custodial sentence while others convicted of less serious crimes are regularly jailed.“That is why my party has been calling for the establishment of a sentencing council that would issue guidelines for judges. “We don’t believe in mandatory sentencing because we know that they are not a deterrent to perpetrators and that each and every case has its own circumstances.“However, we do believe that sentences need to reflect the seriousness of the crime committed.“We need a sentencing council and new sentencing guidelines for the judiciary to ensure accountability and consistency in sentencing, particularly for violent crimes and sexual assaults.“We cannot continue with a system that allows convicted sex offenders to walk free as we seen once again last week.”DONEGAL TD’S FURY AS CHILD PORN MAN WALKS FREE FROM COURT was last modified: November 18th, 2013 by John2Share 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

  • New high-power line to be rerouted

    first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREThe top 10 theme park moments of 2019 Discussed in public meetings last May and June in the Antelope and Santa Clarita valleys, the three-segment line – costing $200 million to $300 million – is intended to serve a huge expansion of Antelope Valley wind farms and could deliver 1,100 megawatts, enough to supply 825,000 homes, Edison and state officials say. The segments would link existing transmission facilities in Santa Clarita, Antelope Acres and Acton to Tehachapi. A post-energy crisis state law orders utilities to get at least 20 percent of their electricity from renewable sources by 2017. State officials say the Tehachapi-Mojave area has the potential to grow from 600 megawatts of wind power to as much as 4,500. Another wind farm has been proposed just outside the Antelope Valley California Poppy Reserve west of Lancaster. That idea has already been denounced by local environmentalists, and the proponents have filed no formal proposal with Los Angeles County officials, whose permission is necessary. As presently envisioned, the new lines would replace a lower-power line leading northeast from Santa Clarita, follow much of an existing power-line corridor from Antelope Acres to Acton, and create a new power-line right of way north from west Lancaster north into Kern County. Segment one is expected to get California Public Utilities Commission approval in early 2006, in time for construction to be completed in early 2007. There is no state deadline for the completion of the second segments, but they could get PUC approval in late 2006. A draft environmental impact report on the Santa Clarita-Lancaster segment is expected to be released in November. The line north of Antelope Acres was originally proposed to follow 100th Street West, but that drew complaints from people who live along the road in Kern County. The latest plan is to run the line up 105th Street West, veering over to 107th at the Kern County line, then to 103rd at an existing power line near Willow Springs. Part of the new segment north from Antelope Acres will be carried on steel poles rather than metal lattice pylons. The poles take up less space on the ground, allowing farming to go on around them. The route is also proposed to shift out of Cameron Canyons, where homes are located, and into the windmill-studded hills to its west. Charles F.

PALMDALE – Southern California Edison plans to shift a proposed high-power line to avoid homes west of Rosamond and in the new Ritter Ranch and Anaverde master-plan communities. South of Palmdale, the 500,000-volt line will veer southwest across a narrow segment of the 7,200-home Ritter Ranch development and then join existing power lines along the southern borders of Ritter Ranch and the 5,000-home Anaverde project to its east. Near the Kern County line, the route would run one-quarter to three-quarters of a mile west of the original plan to avoid houses along 100th Street West. “We’re trying to follow existing right of way as much as possible,” project manager Chuck Adamson said. last_img read more

  • Lakers’ plan for cap flexibility may hurt

    first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWalnut’s Malik Khouzam voted Southern California Boys Athlete of the Week “All those things are a process of trying to put yourself in the best possible space,” Jackson said, “so that when that opportunity shows up, we can really jump to that spot and make that next big move that moves this team back into that higher echelon.’ – The Lakers already have seen two marquee players who could have become free agents in 2007 re-sign with their current teams. Both Houston’s Yao Ming and Phoenix’s Amare Stoudemire signed maximum extensions in recent weeks. Jackson admitted the Lakers were restrained in their moves this summer because they wanted to keep open the possibility of making an offer to Yao or Stoudemire. The possibility of coaching Yao, in particular, was said by insiders to interest Jackson. “Those are really good shots to take,” Jackson said, “and I was in agreement with them even though I didn’t believe that those things would happen, those would come to fruition.” Although there will be other free agents available in the summer of 2007, the Lakers might already be looking at the summer of 2008 to spend, when LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony, Chris Bosh, Dwyane Wade and Kirk Hinrich all could hit the market. The mission for now is salary-cap flexibility, with the Lakers positioning themselves to be capable of offering a maximum contract starting at as much as $14 million per season as early as the summer of 2007. And Phil Jackson said Thursday he will support the plan, even if he might not see the benefit during his three years as Lakers coach. That means sacrificing signing players such as Daniels or Watson in the short term for the possibility of someday landing a superstar. LOS ANGELES — In their past two exhibition games, the Lakers have gotten a first-hand look at Washington’s Antonio Daniels and Denver’s Earl Watson, two of the top guards that were available on the free-agent market this summer. Both Daniels and Watson signed identical five year, $29 million contracts, deals the Lakers just as soon could have offered using their mid-level exception. Instead, the Lakers waited to sign veteran guard Aaron McKie for a modest two years and $5 million. center_img The Lakers will not be under the salary cap until Brian Grant’s contract expires after the 2006-07 season. They appear to be right at the threshold of being able to offer a maximum contract and must measure every dollar they spend on free agents until then. There also is the possibility that Jackson would come back to coach past the 2007-08 season if the Lakers can sign another star player, something Jim Buss, the owner’s son and vice president of player personnel, suggested in an August meeting with reporters. – The Lakers were routed 105-94 by Denver, the same team they will play Nov. 2 in the season opener. Nuggets coach George Karl turned over the team to assistant Scott Brooks and sat in the stands. Karl wanted to give Brooks practice for when Karl will serve a three-game suspension at the start of the season. He attended a workout for Illinois guard Deron Williams before Williams declared for the NBA Draft. The Lakers never led and were outscored 35-13 with their starters on the court. Center Chris Mihm once again struggled to stay in the game and was called for four fouls in 18 minutes. Devean George (11 points) shot well off the bench. — Ross Siler can be reached at (818) 713-3607. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
