CHRIS WADDLE has launched a blistering attack on Tottenham’s flop stars and told them: If you don’t want to be here, get out.Spurs were given a Champions League lesson as they crashed to a humiliating 7-2 home defeat by Bayern Munich on Tuesday night.3 Chris Waddle claims former club Tottenham are a shambles and need to clear out the players who don’t want to be thereCredit: Getty – ContributorAnd Tottenham legend Waddle claims the club is now a “shambles” just six months after one of the greatest nights in their history.Despite reaching the Champions League final last season, stars like Christian Eriksen, Toby Alderweireld and Serge Aurier have said they wanted to quit.And furious Waddle told Five Live: “Clean them out, if they don’t want to play for Tottenham get them out and get some people in who want to wear that white shirt.”I don’t think Aurier wants to be here. He tried to get away in the summer, they wouldn’t sell him, got rid of Trippier instead.”They should’ve bought a right back and said “yeah, you want to leave, then you want to leave”.”At Spurs at the minute there’s too much going on, whether it’s Eriksen or Alderweireld out of contract. So and so wants a new deal, Vertonghen wants a new deal – is he signing? Is he not”It’s just been a shambles, let’s be honest.”I was here for four years, I loved it, it was brilliant.3Latest Tottenham newsHARRY ALL FOUR ITKane admits Spurs must win EIGHT games to rise into Champions League spotGossipALL GONE PETE TONGVertonghen wanted by host of Italian clubs as long Spurs spell nears endBELOW PARRSpurs suffer blow with Parrott to miss Prem restart after appendix operationPicturedSHIRT STORMNew Spurs 2020/21 home top leaked but angry fans slam silver design as ‘awful”STEP BY STEP’Jose fears for players’ welfare during restart as stars begin ‘pre-season’KAN’T HAVE THATVictor Osimhen keen on Spurs move but only if they sell Kane this summer”But you’ve got to say that it’s a shambles at the minute and they’ve got to sort it out quickly because that squad, even though I’m saying the defence is not good enough, it’s still good enough for the Premier League to finish in the top four.”So they’ve still got a lot to play for, it’s early doors.

The Belfast star takes on Leo Santa Cruz in an immediate rematch, live on Sky Sports, at the end of January, with his WBA ‘Super’ featherweight title on the line.The points win over the Mexican last July was his first fight at 126lbs on the back of his super-bantamweight unification success over Scott Quigg at the start of 2016.Frampton has flown out to Las Vegas a month out but already has one eye on making boxing history and put Irish boxing back on the map.”I want to be a three-weight world champion,” he told Sky Sports. “That is the goal. It wasn’t necessarily at the start of my career, when you reach targets you set new goals and Steve Collins is the only other Irishman to hold world titles in different divisions, so I want to stand alone.”Collins, from Dublin, won world titles at middleweight and super-middleweight and is best known for being the first man to beat Chris Eubank Sr in their back-to-back battles in the 1990s. Frampton has been linked with a featherweight unification fight with Lee Selby and and is convinced he will make it two wins out of two against Santa Cruz at the MGM Grand, Las Vegas, on January 28.”I’ve been working hard and sparring well and although I am 30, I feel I am getting better and if I take what I’ve been doing into the gym so far in with me, I am going to win the fight convincingly,” he said.”We’ll pretty much be in Las Vegas for a month. When I was over last time, when I fought him in New York, we went over a month early and we don’t fix what’s not broken.”We are going to to it again; get used to the time difference, just get used to the surroundings and just soak it all up, enjoy myself when I’m out there for the big fight.”Watch Carl Frampton v Leo Santa Cruz live on Sky Sports, in the early hours of Sunday, January 29.

Both tears of joy and sadness erupted in the courtroom of Justice Navindra Singh on Wednesday after a 26-year-old miner, Trevor Williams, was set free following a unanimous not guilty verdict returned by a 12-member jury on a manslaughter charge at the Demerara High Court.Freed: Trevor WilliamsThe former accused faced the indictment which detailed that between June 4-5, 2013, at Bruck-up Landing, North West District, Region One (Barima-Waini), he unlawfully killed Randy Raphael. The accused pleaded not guilty to the offence.Back in April of 2013, Williams was charged with murder when he made his first court appearance at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts. However, Williams was slapped with a manslaughter charge when he appeared at the High Court on Wednesday.The accused was represented by Attorney Mark Conway while the State’s case was presented by Prosecutors Teriq Mohammed in association with Tuanna Hardy and Abigail Gibbs.After a total of five witnesses testified, the State had closed the case, however, Defence Attorney Conway made a no-case submission to the court, contending that the State failed to prove its case or find sufficient evidence for Williams to be convicted of the charge instituted against him.Facts presented indicated that on the day in question, the accused found a shotgun which he picked up and took back to his mining camp. Moments later, Raphael, a friend of the accused was trying to open the said firearm but Williams took it from him and also tried to open it during which a round of ammunition went off and hit Raphael in the head resulting in his death. Williams realising what he has caused left the scene, but after several days he turned himself in to the Police at the Port Kiatuma Police Station.Justice Singh while informing Williams that he is now a free man, encouraged the young man to “be careful” the next time as he made a mistake the last time which caused the death of his friend.
Asked if he felt the Lakers had to make a move, Jackson answered: “After Thursday’s loss, I was very disappointed in our team. I thought our chemistry was not good. I told you guys … that I saw defeat in some faces in a ballgame that was close. It was right down to the wire all the way through, and we’ve had four games like that out of our five losses that have been right on the nub and we haven’t been able to produce.” Bryant called Kidd “one of the top point guards in the history of the NBA” and suggested the two wouldn’t have a problem co-existing. “If a name like Jason Kidd comes across the table, you have to look at it,” he said. The Nets, who have slipped to 25-29 and two games out of the Eastern Conference’s top eight, would have to be open to a package probably built around Kwame Brown and Jordan Farmar as well as several expiring contracts and draft picks. The Lakers have lost key players for nearly 120 games this season due to injury. And because of that, the Lakers already have played their way into the sixth seed – they trailed Houston by four games and led Denver by 2 1/2 entering Tuesday. “Hopefully with a few days off that we had and getting re-focused, we’ll be able to come back and have a solid end of the season,” Luke Walton said. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

No Phil Jackson-coached team ever has lost six straight games, although that will be of no comfort as the Lakers play host to Portland tonight at Staples Center. They have dropped their past four games in the closing minutes, almost finding new ways to lose. Although the Lakers have victories to their credit over the Western Conference’s top five teams, they have gone just 16-18 after opening the season with 15 of their first 20 games at home. They now would have to go 20-8 to finish with 50 wins. EL SEGUNDO – As the Lakers reconvened Tuesday following the All-Star break, they could find the seventh-place Denver Nuggets closer in their rearview mirror than the fifth-place Houston Rockets ahead on the road. Whether the Lakers are stuck in reverse or merely stalled out thanks to a combination of injuries and a difficult schedule, they will start the second half of the season having lost five consecutive games and 11 of their past 15. Amid questions about their direction, the Lakers hope one answer might come in a highway-robbery deal before Thursday’s trade deadline. They have expressed interest in All-Star guard Jason Kidd, who is owed $41 million over the next two seasons. With those financial considerations in mind, the New Jersey Nets are considering trading Kidd to the Lakers in a package that would not include either center Andrew Bynum or forward Lamar Odom, the two most valuable assets after Kobe Bryant. “We’ve looked to make deals over the last few years close to the trading deadline,” Jackson said Tuesday, “and they’ve all been really key players that we thought would make a difference. We just didn’t want to do a lateral move or something like that. That’s one of the reasons why we think if you do something, do it right, do it big.” The Lakers would have to take into account the luxury-tax implications of adding Kidd as well as the difficulty in bringing a player up to speed midseason in the triangle offense. Even so, Jackson’s patience might have run out after Thursday’s 114-108 loss to Cleveland, a game in which the Lakers led with 3:23 left only to watch the Cavaliers finish the game by making five consecutive trips to the foul line.
“I think it’s opened their eyes, that for many people, (hunger) is an issue, that you can do something about it,” Baker said. The first 250 participants who pledge $25 or more will receive a pancake breakfast and a T-shirt, and those who raise more than $250 are eligible to win one of two laptop computers. “It’s an opportunity for people to come out, have a good time and raise money so we can feed people,” Baker said. email@example.com (661) 267-7802160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

That’s according to Grace Resource Center Director Steve Baker, who runs one of the Antelope Valley’s most prominent charities. A cadre of area high school students today will take action in support of Baker’s assertion. For their senior project, 12 Antelope Valley Union High School District students organized the Second Annual Walk Against Hunger, which will be held today at Clear Channel Stadium. Registration booths open a half-hour before the 8 a.m. event, which includes a two-hour walk and an approximately hourlong prize ceremony. The event is open to the public. The student organizers are Vanessa Gonzalez, Yesenia Castillo, Katherine Harris, Arreanna Ramstein, Jennifer Ruiz, Briana Sandoval, Hassan Stephens, Andrew McSorley, Makeda McCauley, Dario Rivers, Allison Pineda and Cynthia Herrera. AVUHSD special- education instructor Steve Scheper helped coordinate the students’ efforts. Baker said involving teens in the event is as much about helping those less fortunate as it is about developing future leaders.
Councillor Mac Giolla Easbuig and postmaster Josie Molloy.There is anger and frustration in West Donegal at the confirmed closure of Derrybeg postal sorting office.Local postmaster Josie Molloy has confirmed he has received a closure date for the sorting office.Independent Cllr Micheál Choilm Mac Giolla Easbuig has expressed his anger after meeting with Mr Molloy on the issue. Councillor Mac Giolla Easbuig said “This shows the government’s commitment to rural Ireland is just a ploy by Fine Gael to con people into thinking that they have rural Ireland at heart. During the recent election they were taken a back by the feeling of betrayal all across rural areas and we now see that their new found concern is baseless.“If they were serious about addressing the issues that rural post offices and communities face decisions like this would be put on hold at least until the Post Office Working Group set up.”He added the loss of the sorting office in Derrybeg will impact on the local service provided by the an Post.“Many times businesses in the area and members of the community would have been able to call in early to pick up a parcel that they were waiting on and it was this type of local and personal service that made the post office an important part of the community and I believe that an Post will lose that respect of the people with the consolidation of services like this. “Let’s be clear about this though it is part of a process where an Post are preparing to privatise the mail service across the country where your local post office will not be part of the mail delivery at all. We only have to look at the way that post boxes are being taken out of the post office as well. The whole agenda of this neo-liberal Fine Gael government is to drive the full privatisation of an Post” continued MacGiollaEaspuig.Councillor Mac Giolla Easbuig and Deputy Thomas Pringle have been highlighting the threat of privatisation across all services and say they will continue to fight to keep vital services in public ownership but we need our communities to make this a priority too.ANGER AT CLOSURE CONFIRMATION OF DERRYBEG POSTAL SORTING OFFICE was last modified: May 2nd, 2016 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:derrybegdonegalJosie Molloypost office
A case against three drivers applying for bus licenses has been withdrawn by Donegal’s leading Garda, Chief Superintendent Terri McGinn.The cases had come before Letterkenny District Court. The applications were made by three people who were seeking small PSV licenses.However, because they had penalty points on their licenses for speeding, the applications had been refused.In one case the driver had been given penalty points for driving 89kph in an 80kph zone.The applications were appealed and the cases were due to be heard at Letterkenny District Court.However, when the cases were called, Garda Inspector Sean Grant applied for an adjournment to enable Chief Superintendent McGinn to “reconsider” the files.But solicitor Frank Dorrian, representing two of the people seeking licenses, and barrister Gareth McGrory representing the other man, objected.They pointed out that it was the Gardai who had asked for the cases to be heard at a previous hearing six weeks ago.Judge Paul Kelly refused the Gardai’s application to have the matter adjourned again and put the cases back until 2pm.He indicated that it was not appropriate for the Garda Chief Superintendent of Donegal to treat the court or legal practitioners with such “discourtesy.”When the cases were mentioned again, Garda Inspector Sean Grant told the court that Chief Superintendent McGinn was withdrawing her application against the three people.The licenses will now be issued.Bus licenses granted after Judge accuses Garda Chief of “discourtesy” was last modified: October 16th, 2018 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:busChief Supt Terri McGinncourtdonegalGardailicenses
1 Ryan Fredericks and Tom Cairney of Fulham West Ham United are set to announce the signing of Fulham defender Ryan Fredericks on a free transfer next week, according to reports.The defender will become Manuel Pellegrinis first signing, after agreeing a four-year deal with the east Londoners.Despite securing promotion to the Premier League with Fulham, the right-back has failed to agree terms on a new deal at Craven Cottage and will depart once his contract officially expires.According to the Evening Standard, the Hammers are also interested in Tom Cairney; Fredericks former captain at the Cottagers.A deal for the Scotland international will be far more tricky given that he is the club captain and will be seen by Slavisa Jokanovic as integral to keeping the club in the Premier League next season.Former Irons boss David Moyes scouted the midfielder several times during his stay in east London but, after scoring the winner in the Play-Off Final against Aston Villa, a deal for Cairney would surely be bordering on impossible to complete.The report from the London-based paper continued to say that Fredericks wanted a deal which reflected his status at the club and made him the highest earner eclipsing Cairney on £40,000-a-week.However, it is now understood the 25-year-old will arrive at the London Stadium to provide 33-year-old Pablo Zabaleta with competition for the right-back berth.
