Man United blow? Neymar to stay at Barcelona ‘for life’, insists club director

first_img1 Neymar celebrates scoring for Barcelona Neymar will remain at Barcelona “for life,” according to the club’s technical director Roberto Fernandez.The Brazil superstar was linked with Manchester United this summer, with reports in England claiming the Red Devils were prepared to spend £240million to tempt him to the Premier League.£130m of that fee would have been the player’s buyout clause, with the remainder on tying him to a long-term contract at Old Trafford.Neymar, who scored 43 goals in all competitions as Barcelona won a La Liga, Copa del Rey and Champions League treble last season, recently admitted he held talks with United over the summer.He is, however, tied to the European champions until June 2018, and Barca have expressed their intention to reward the Brazil international with a new and improved deal that would reportedly make the player the second highest paid at the club after Lionel Messi.“We are currently working on Neymar’s contract extension and I don’t think there will be any type of problem,” Fernandez said, as reported in Marca.“I have no doubt in my mind that Neymar will spend the rest of his life at Barcelona.”last_img read more

Good news for Spurs and Southampton? Porto star plays down Real Madrid link

first_imgTottenham and Southampton target Giannelli Imbula insists he is not dreaming of a move to Real Madrid.The midfielder joined Porto in the summer from Marseille for £17.5m after they beat off competition from Premier League clubs.Since then, though, rumours have grown that the 23-year-old is unsettled and struggling to adapt to life in Portugal.Spurs and Southampton have been tipped to make a move for the Frenchman, while recent reports have suggested that Imbula is targeting a switch to Real.However, the link to the Spanish giants has quickly been quashed by the player. “It is not a dream? No,” Imbula told Canal+ when quizzed on interest from Real Madrid.“La Liga? No it is not a dream. A dream is something you have when you go to bed… I have personal aims, but I don’t necessarily have dreams in football.” Giannelli Imbula 1last_img read more

Ryan won’t be retained as U.S. women’s coach

first_imgSOCCER: Debacle at World Cup, the team’s only major tournament, prompts team to look for another leader. By Rachel Cohen THE ASSOCIATED PRESS High expectations can create major repercussions. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREGame Center: Chargers at Kansas City Chiefs, Sunday, 10 a.m.That was defender Cat Whitehill’s reaction to the news Greg Ryan is out as the U.S. women’s soccer coach. The decision came less than a month after his top-ranked team lost in the World Cup semifinals following a contentious goalie switch. “With the standards our team has set, if you don’t win, it’s hard to keep your job,” Whitehill said Monday, a day after players and Ryan were informed of the move. “Nothing against the way Greg Ryan coached, but we didn’t play as well as we should have.” Ryan’s contract will not be renewed when it expires at the end of the year. The squad does not play any more games in 2007. “I’m not going to point to any one factor or one individual decision,” U.S. Soccer president Sunil Gulati said on a conference call Monday announcing the change. “Obviously, coaches’ decisions impact games. All that was weighed in.” Gulati, U.S. Soccer secretary general Dan Flynn and retired star Mia Hamm will form the search committee. Gulati expected to make a hire in the next 30 to 45 days, with the team set to resume training in January. The new coach will come in with just eight months to prepare for the Beijing Olympics. Gulati said he wants a candidate who is familiar with American soccer, who has experience coaching in international events. Ryan was 45-1-9 since taking over in early 2005, but Gulati made clear that the lone loss weighed heavily in the decision because it meant Ryan failed to win his only major tournament. Gulati also indicated that poor performances in games the U.S. won or tied factored into the choice to sever ties. “The expectation is to compete for a gold medal virtually every time we’re in competition,” Gulati said. With the Americans favored to win their third World Cup, Ryan decided before their match with Brazil to make a change in goal, replacing Hope Solo with veteran Briana Scurry. Solo had allowed two goals in four World Cup starts and had a shutout string of nearly 300 minutes. Scurry, the goalie for the 1999 World Cup champs, had beaten Brazil two straight times. The U.S. lost, 4-0, and had to settle for third place, and Solo ripped Ryan for the move. Solo is not suspended from the team and will be invited to next year’s residency program, Gulati said. Forward Heather O’Reilly said distractions wouldn’t have lingered had Ryan remained coach. “We were looking to move forward if it was Greg or if it was a new coaching staff,” O’Reilly said. Gulati said he and Flynn spoke to players in evaluating Ryan and that the committee would seek input from team members during the hiring process. Ryan’s assistants – Bret Hall, Phil Weddon and Billy McNicol – don’t have the experience to be considered for the head coaching job, Gulati said. The new coach will decide whether to retain them. The 50-year-old Ryan, a longtime college coach, was an assistant on the gold-medal-winning U.S. team at the 2004 Olympics. In a sport once dominated by a few powers, last month’s World Cup reflected the greater commitment to women’s soccer by many countries. “I’m not concerned we’ve fallen off,” Gulati said. “What it takes to stay even is clearly more demanding.”160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

A growing threat to civil liberties

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREStriving toward a more perfect me: Doug McIntyre His bureau had already talked with a federally financed think tank at USC, a forerunner of the kind Harman has in mind to implement her bill. Like Downing, Harman thinks it likely that the U.S. will face a native brand of terrorism in the immediate future and offers a plan to deal with such ideologically based violence. Harman’s bill threatens constitutional rights by creating an anti-terrorist commission with sweeping investigative power and a mandate to propose laws prohibiting whatever the commission deems homegrown terrorism. Specifically, the commission is a menace through its power of hearings and subpoenas, a power expressly authorized for even a single member of the commission – little Joe McCarthys running around the country holding their own private hearings. Harman’s bill would also assign the commission the insidious power to infiltrate targeted organizations, to hire consultants and contractors to carry out its work, and to create the misnamed “Center of Excellence” which will continue to exist after the commission is disbanded. The proposal also includes an absurd attack on the Internet, criticizing it for providing Americans with “access to broad and constant streams of terrorist-related propaganda.” While its purpose is to prevent terrorism, Harman’s bill doesn’t criminalize any specific conduct nor contain penalties. But the commission’s findings will be cited by those who see a terrorist under every bed and who will demand passage of criminal penalties that further restrict free speech and other civil liberties. Personal or group actions contrary to the commission’s findings will be interpreted as a sign of treason, at worst, or a lack of patriotism at the least. While Harman denies that her proposal creates “thought police,” it defines “home grown terrorism” as the “planned” or “threatened” use of force to coerce the government or the people in the promotion of “political or social objectives.” That means that no force need actually have occurred as long as the government can argue that the individual or group thought about doing it. IF there was any doubt about the imminent threat to free speech and thought inherent in Rep. Jane Harman’s “Thought Police” bill, one need only read the testimony of LAPD Deputy Chief Michael Downing. The Los Angeles Police Department, through Downing’s anti-terrorism bureau, had already implemented the most dangerous provisions of what Harman would do nationwide. Only a loud public outcry got the LAPD to drop – or at least put a more benign name – on its efforts, for now, anyway. With overwhelming bipartisan support, Harman’s “Violent Radicalization and Homegrown Terrorism Prevention Act of 2007” passed the House 404-6 late last month. Swift passage through Sen. Joe Lieberman’s Homeland Security Committee appears certain. It was before Lieberman’s committee that Downing revealed his plan to keep tabs on Muslim organizations in Los Angeles. Under the guise of helping them integrate into the larger community, Downing wanted to know what Muslims are taught, what they read and whose voices among them we should support. Any social or economic reform is thus brought under the gun. Have a march of 100 or 100,000 people in support of a reform – amnesty for illegal immigrants or overturning Roe v. Wade – and someone can perceive that to be a use of force to intimidate the people, the court or the government. “Violent radicalization” is defined as promoting an “extremist belief system.” American governments, both state and national, have a long history of interpreting radical “belief systems” as inevitably leading to violence as a means of facilitating change. Examples are numerous. California’s 1919 criminal syndicalism law was used successfully to break up the Communist Labor Party, sending its leaders to San Quentin for membership in an organization that, the government maintained, advocated force and violence. That law was resurrected in the 1960s in Los Angeles for use against black activists. The hearings conducted by the House UnAmerican Activities Committee for several decades during the Cold War and the solo hearings by a member of that committee’s Senate counterpart, Joe McCarthy, demonstrate the dangers inherent in Harman’s legislation. California’s “Tenney Committee” smeared reformers in a similar manner. Harman denies that her bill is a threat to free speech. It clearly states that no measure to prevent homegrown terrorism should violate “constitutional rights, civil rights or civil liberties.” But as in waterboarding, all the government need say is that “We don’t torture,” or in this case, “We don’t violate the Constitution.” Unless the public applies pressure on a Senate ready to pass this turkey, what LAPD’s Downing tried to achieve here will be implemented nationwide. Ralph E. Shaffer is professor emeritus of history at California State Polytechnic University, Pomona. William Robinson is director of the Upper San Gabriel Valley Water District.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

TOURISM BOOST FOR DONEGAL AS TOP CHINESE JOURNALISTS FLOWN INTO COUNTY

All you need to know about the player Man United could sign ahead of Pogba

first_imgFootball statistics experts WhoScored.com assess the merits of Manchester United making a move for Monaco defender Fabinho. Read all about it, below, then check out WhoScored’s Man United stats page.Much of Manchester United’s summer dealings have been dominated by the arrival of Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Zlatan Ibrahimovic. A world record deal to re-sign Paul Pogba is now the priority but their business doesn’t look set to finish there. Eric Bailly joined as Jose Mourinho’s first signing as United manager and it could be another defender that concludes their business before the new season starts next month.Understandably lost in the media coverage of United’s pursuit of Pogba, Mourinho’s side are also reportedly plotting a £25m move for Monaco’s versatile right-back Fabinho. Despite boasting the joint-best defensive record in the Premier League last season (35 goals conceded), their defence has been a cause for concern. Bailly’s arrival has seemingly put an end to Daley Blind’s spell at centre-back, while signing Fabinho would mark United’s latest attempt at resolving an issue they’ve had at right-back since Gary Neville retired in 2011. Matteo Darmian was last season’s solution but his own future is up in the air following an unconvincing debut campaign, while Antonio Valencia and Phil Jones are simply not right-backs. Instead, Mourinho has reportedly earmarked Fabinho as a potential target to complete what has already been a sensational window for the Red Devils. Given the type of defenders Mourinho has gravitated towards during his career, it is no surprise that at 6ft 2in, Fabinho has caught the eye of the United manager. Mourinho would have also caught glimpses of Fabinho during the 12 months he spent on loan with the Madrid Castilla squad in the 2012/13 campaign during Mourinho’s final year as Madrid manager. Fabinho even earned his only appearance for the senior team in one of Mourinho’s final games in charge, registering an assist in a 14-minute cameo during Madrid’s 6-2 win over Malaga.The European champions opted against keeping the then teenager before Claudio Ranieri’s Monaco swooped. The 22-year-old has gone from strength-to-strength ever since. No current Monaco player has secured a higher WhoScored.com rating over the last two Ligue 1 campaigns than Fabinho (7.4). With age and experience, Fabinho’s all-round performances have significantly improved. Fabinho has always presented a threat going forward but his end-product in the final third was often found wanting in his first two years at Monaco. The fact he failed to register a single assist in the league during that time would suggest the criticism was well placed. However, last season Fabinho played a direct hand in 10 league goals (six goals, four assists), with half of those coming in his 18 appearances at right-back.Getting forward and supporting attacks also means that Fabinho attracts fouls. Only Bernando Silva (77) was fouled more times for Monaco in the league last season and Fabinho’s physical prowess would also add another dimension to United’s attack. With Chris Smalling the only player that offered any serious aerial threat, only Stoke (6) scored fewer goals from set-pieces than United (7) in the Premier League last season. It’s an area where United need to significantly improve and something Fabinho could contribute towards.While Fabinho’s blistering runs forward may be one of his most eye-catching qualities, the Brazil international is extremely diligent in his duties at the back. He has completed more tackles and interceptions combined than any other Monaco player in the last three years (483), accentuating his statistically calculated WhoScored.com strengths of ‘tackling’ and ‘concentration’. Not only that but he has also won possession more times in the defensive third than any other teammate (282).There is also another common denominator between Mourinho and Fabinho in that both are represented by Jorge Mendes, an agent United are already very much in bed with. United are yet to do business with Mendes this summer, but that could all be about to change. 1 Fabinho in action for Monaco against Crystal Palace last_img read more
