first_imgTwice fired by Al ThaniJuan Ramón Muñiz knows what it is to be fired by Abdullah Al Thani. In the summer of 2010, the Sheikh of Qatar bought 96.8% of the shares held by Fernando Sanz. The first thing he did was to say goodbye to Muñiz who had saved the team from relegation to Second against all odds and with the second lowest budget in the category (€ 25.7 million) and despite having another contract year. The Portuguese Jesualdo Ferreira was hired instead. Almost a decade later history has been repeated. The case is pending resolution in the Courts.Getafe is still waiting for AntoñínAs it is known, Malaga rejected a proposal by Getafe by Antoñín, 1.5 million euros. But there are many possibilities for the Malaga striker to become part of the Madrid team. It would remain to be determined, in the event that the operation was closed in this winter term of signings, if the player would go immediately to Pérez Muñoz or could end the season in La Rosaleda already as assigned.Antoñín will renew his contract automatically until 2023 on June 30 for having played (and exceeded) the 10 games (counting as a game to participate in at least 45 minutes). In addition, its current termination clause, three million euros, will become six.Regardless of this situation, Manolo Gaspar, the sports director, is negotiating with the player to accept a professional contract. Abdullah Al Thani is punishing his disastrous management as president of Malaga with the unanimous rejection of the fans and countless complaints. Among them is that of Juan Ramón Muñiz, who decided to denounce the club after being dismissed last April 14 after a defeat against Extremadura in La Rosaleda. The Asturian coach had to fulfill season and a half of contract. And that is what he claims.The view is scheduled to be home today in Malaga. On May 28, the act of conciliation was established prior to a lawsuit in this type of situation. As there was no conciliation, Muñiz filed the lawsuit in the social courtMuñiz’s lawsuit is not the only one Abdullah Al Thani must face. In fact, they accumulate. The lawsuit with the BlueBay hotel remains pending resolution. There is also the criminal complaint of the APA (Association of Small Shareholders) in which the City Council appeared and is waiting for the plaintiff to file a motion for reform after the judge denied the intervention of the club. We cannot forget the demands presented by Caminero and Joaquín Jofre (former sports director and former legal advisor). Or the Jony case.last_img read more

first_imgNicknamed ‘El Bisonte’, Luis Suarez has a player profile that closely resembles Angel’s, being very fast, with great capacity of unmarking and remarkable success in the face of goal.Getafe would receive ten million for the transfer of Angel (33 years) to Barça. With that money he will go for Luis Suarez. The Colombian has a market value of 4.5 million, a price that will rise until the end of the season. Luis Javier Suárez Charris, known soccer as Luis Suárez (not to be confused with the Uruguayan striker of Barça), is Getafe’s goal for the next season as soon as the signing of Angel for Barcelona crystallizes.Luis Suarez, a 22-year-old Colombian nationalized in Spain, plays striker in Zaragoza yielded by the English Watford and is the third top scorer of Second with 14 goals, after Stuani (20) and Yuri (16).The club azulón would continue its continuous line of betting on the Second Pichichi and how good result has given him in recent years with the signings of Jorge Molina, Ángel and Jaime Mata, in addition to Enric Gallego, although this one only lasted four months in the equipment when being yielded in January to Osasuna.last_img read more

first_imgRyan Lonergan in action for Rovers.ROAD TO AVIVA: Letterkenny Rovers player Ryan Lonergan has enjoyed a sensational season at full-back, so much so that he has been nicknamed ‘Cafu’ by his teammates. Lonergan’s raiding runs down the flank, combined with his defensive solidity have drawn comparisons to the Brazilian legend!His consistency has ensured he has received glowing plaudits during an already historic campaign for Rovers. However, the former Glencar underage starlet feels his teammates can go all the way, and believes if they play to the ability their capable of, it could be a dream weekend for all involved with the Cathedral Town club.Lonergan told Donegal Daily, “It’s been a dream season for everybody, we’ve had a long tough season.“The lads call me Cafu, but I think I’m more like Philip Lahm to be honest!“But all those nights getting the legs ran off us on the track at the Community Centre by Liam O’Donnell, will be all worthwhile when we get to run out at The Aviva on Saturday, it really is a dream come true for us. “We’ve worked so hard all year for this competition, it’s the one we targeted, and to see the buzz it’s generated it’s easy to see why.“We targeted a run in this competition, and seven games and eight months later we’re in the final at the Aviva.“We’re operating at the highest level possible for us at Intermediate level, and it’s just amazing to be involved.”There’s a huge buzz around Letterkenny, the main street has black and white flags draped from top to bottom, and in every shop window there’s good luck signs for Eamon Mc Conigley’s troops.Lonergan said, “The buzz around the place is unreal, it means so much to so many people, men that have been involved in the club for 54 years, they’re just so happy, and it’s fantastic to see. “But we want to win it so badly, and we’ll be doing everything we can to make sure we bring that cup back to Letterkenny.”Rovers have played 9 games in national competitions and will play at least 11 before the season is out, it’s been some run, but Lonergan hopes the best chapter has not yet been written.“It’s going to be amazing to play at the Aviva on Saturday, but we want to win, and if we do, we’ll make history and it’ll be the greatest day in the club’s history.“Crumlin are a top-class side, they’ve been there and done it, but hopefully we can do the business on Saturday.” ROAD TO AVIVA: LETTERKENNY’S ‘CAFU’ RYAN LONERGAN HOPING TO MAKE HISTORY was last modified: May 12th, 2016 by Mark ForkerShare 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:CafunewsRoad To AvivaRyan LonerganSportlast_img read more

It was later found at Ards parked on the shoreline.The heifer was killed when the trailer was covered by a high tide.“The last hours of the animal must have been horrific,” said one friend of the farmer.“He’s not sure why anyone would do this; maybe they didn’t know the trailer would be covered in water when it was abandoned.”  COW DROWNS IN SICKENING TRAILER THEFT INCIDENT was last modified: October 24th, 2012 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:COW DROWNS IN SICKENING TRAILER THEFT INCIDENTlast_img read more

first_imgA couple years ago economists at UCLA’s Anderson Forecast floated their housing price bubble theory, which has hovered over the residential real estate market ever since. Last week the economists took some air out of it. It seems that the market, at least in Southern California, continues to show surprising strength. And UCLA’s forecasters are not the only ones saying it. A senior Wells Fargo economist agrees; so do some analysts, and numbers for November. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREBlues bury Kings early with four first-period goals Michael Bazdarich, a senior Anderson economist, summed up the bubble thusly: “I think it’s fair to say our forecast for the housing market is for a soft landing. I don’t see any weakening in the local markets yet.” This stance got a lot of attention. But it really was not that new. After its initial call, UCLA still used the word bubble on lots of occasions. But when forecasters explained the position in detail, there was no claim that prices would fall off a cliff, at least in Southern California. Appreciation rates would slow and sales would cool. And that’s happened in some places, like Orange, San Diego and Ventura counties. Other areas, including the San Fernando Valley, are still seeing healthy rates of appreciation, which just about everyone who tracks the market finds surprising. The Valley’s median single-family home price hit a record $600,000 for the third time this year. A year from now it will likely be higher, but by how much is the question. A legitimate concern looms, though, and it starts materializing next year. A lot of the recent buying activity, at least in high priced Southern California, came courtesy of adjustable rate or interest only loans. “The first act of a five-act play will start playing out in the housing market,” said Scott Anderson, a senior economist for Wells Fargo, who believes that the Southern California residential real estate market has longer legs than some others. He notes that nationally, 66 percent of the subprime loans made last year were two-year adjustables and 19 percent were three-year adjustables. Subprime home loans are made to less credit worthy buyers. Some of them will be facing higher payments throughout next year. “I don’t know if a lot of people are prepared. If they bought the highest priced house they could afford, are they going to be able to afford those (new) payments?” he said. That could lead to a spike in inventory or foreclosure activity. Demand could then flatten, as well as prices. Market analyst Nima Nattagh also points out that housing price appreciation has been running well ahead of income gains. And this, too could pose a problem. He also said the relationship between home loan debt service and prices is a fairly worrisome level. “This is not going to be sustained, and the prices will have to correct themselves. The issue is when is that going to happen?” Nattagh wonders. That sounds bad, and it could be for recent buyers, especially those using creative financing or speculating on big appreciation gains continuing. The experts say this market is still in for a soft landing. But that also means it’s likely the big money, in terms of equity growth, has already been made. Gregory J.

first_imgDonegal Sinn Féin Senator Pádraig Mac Lochlainn has again appealed to the Government to put in place a redress scheme for the thousands of Donegal families affected by mica defective concrete blocks in their homes.He raised the matter again in the Seanad today with the Minister of State for Housing, Damien English.Senator Mac Lochlainn said: “The long delayed report of the Expert Panel on these defective concrete blocks was published last June. A year behind schedule. Another year of anguish and distress for the thousands of affected families across Donegal and Mayo. “While the terms of reference set by Government for that report were limited, it is clear that the findings and recommendations point to the failure of this State to ensure that concrete blocks, the core component of the family home in Ireland, were manufactured to a safe standard. The failure in State regulation also extended to building control standards and legislation.“In other words, this State failed so many families in Donegal. Families who had undertaken the largest financial outlay in their lives, the mortgage or loan for their family home have been left badly exposed. Therefore the State has to step up and support these families to make their homes safe with a redress scheme as was the case for the families in Dublin and North Leinster affected by pyrite in their homes a number of years back.“I am deeply disappointed and frustrated by Minister English’s response today. These Donegal families have lost another year already with the delay in publishing the Expert Panel report. Another four months later and we still have no financial relief for those families.“It was very telling today that when my colleague, Mayo Sinn Féin Senator Rose Conway Walsh asked Minister English whether he has sought a line in the upcoming budget to ensure financial assistance for the affected families, he avoided the question. “The Government need to do the right thing and they need to do it now. They need to deliver fairness and justice for families, whether they live in Dublin or Donegal and Mayo.”Featured image by Brian McDaid shows crumbling blocks from a Donegal home.‘Donegal families need a Mica Redress Scheme now’ – Senator Mac Lochlainn was last modified: September 27th, 2017 by Rachel McLaughlinShare 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:MICASenator Padraig Mac LochlainnSinn Feinlast_img read more
