Valencia starlet in demand as Manchester United, City and Chelsea all eye up moves

first_img1 Manchester United, Manchester City, Chelsea and Barcelona are preparing to fight it out for the signature of Andre Gomes next summer.The Portugal midfielder, on loan at Valencia from Benfica, is represented by super agent Jorge Mendes and is drawing attention from all the European giants.He was wanted by Liverpool last summer before deciding to try his luck in Spain.His form in La Liga has now alerted the wealthiest clubs in the world to his talents and a bidding war is expected to kick off in the New Year.The 21-year-old midfielder, meanwhile, is keeping his cool and said: “I do not care what is spoken about other teams. Me, I like the Valencia and my only concern is to continue the good times here and keep playing well.“After that, I am not worried about the speculation.” Andre Gomes last_img read more

Manchester United and Real Madrid target closes in on new deal

first_img Argentina star Lucas Biglia 1 Manchester United and Real Madrid interest Lucas Biglia is close to agreeing a new deal at Lazio.Back in June, United were credited with having the defensive midfielder on their shopping list and just last week Madrid reportedly offered around £15m for the anchorman.But, according to reports in the Italian press, with each passing day United don’t make a firm offer for the former Anderlecht man, he gets closer to penning a lucrative extension in the Italian capital.Biglia made 30 appearances for Lazio last season and his combative style made him a firm favourite with the club’s fans.Lazio feel they could command a fee of around £20m for the 29-year-old Argentinean in the current seller’s market.But if none of the Champions League’s big-spending clubs stump up the asking price, Lazio will be more than happy to give Biglia a new deal and hefty pay rise.last_img read more

first_imgIreland’s first woman boxing referee said she hopes Katie Taylor’s Olympic Gold medal win will encourage some of Ireland’s more “experienced” boxing coaches to help more girls to join the sport.Sadie Duffy, from Buncrana, has been refereeing some of Ireland’s biggest boxing names since she first became a referee in 1997.Sadie has become good friends with the Bray golden girl after refereeing a number of her bouts over the years. But she said that while boxing in Ireland has changed in recent years, more work still needs to be done to get girls into the ring.“Women’s boxing has come on so much in Ireland and that is down so much to Katie Taylor.“But it still needs plenty of encouragement. It has always been a man’s sport but that is changing.“I just hope now that with Katie’s magnificent win some of Ireland’s more ‘experienced’ coaches can finally see what women’s boxing has to offer. “Gender should never be an issue. It should only be seen as two athletes in the ring,” she said.Sadie, who is a member of the Illies Golden Gloves Club, has travelled the world both refereeing and managing boxers.Ironically it was because of a man that Sadie first became interested in boxing.Her husband Eddie, now a coach with Illies Golden Gloves, used to box and Sadie would attend his bouts.But instead of taking a back seat Sadie decided she had better get involved if she wanted to see more of her then boyfriend. “Instead of taking a back seat I decided I would like to get involved. I did a six week course with the Derry County Board and continued from there.“I had to do various exams and I eventually qualified in 1997 when I refereed my first bout at St Canice’s Club in Derry,” she said.Sadie said she was delighted to watch Katie eventually realise her goal and win an Olympic title.“If anyone deserved to fulfill their dream then it’s Katie. “She is the nicest and most modest girl you could meet. Nobody will ever realise what she has done for sport in Ireland.“She has a lovely family and I am so delighted for them all that Katie’s dream has become a reality,” added Sadie.SADIE HOPES COACHES WILL ‘BOX CLEVER’ AFTER KATIE’S GOLDEN WIN was last modified: August 10th, 2012 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:boxingIllies Boxing ClubKatie TaylorSadie Duffylast_img read more


first_imgEamon McGee was unlucky to miss out on an All-Star, but seems to be taking it well, after his cheeky jibe at brother Neil.Eamon McGee seems to be taking the disappointment of missing out on an All-Star quite well, after telling his followers on Twitter, that he has one title Neil can never get his hands on.McGee was incredibly unlucky to miss out an All-Star award, after another sensational campaign in the heart of Donegal’s defence.McGee should have got one in 2012 too, he enjoyed a great season and was typically consistent throughout the campaign. For many Donegal supporters he was the man-of-the-match against Mayo in the All-Ireland final, but unfortunately the accolade hasn’t been awarded to him.However, his brother Neil also had a superb campaign, and he was rewarded for that, with his third All-Star in just four years for his incredible and consistent performances over the last number of years.But before Neil can start bragging, he was reminded of the title he lost to his older sibling.McGee tweeted, “I once beat our Neil at a sprint in the community games at u12’s, the trophy is still there on the mantle-piece, he now has three all stars though.” EAMON MCGEE PUTS HIS BROTHER BACK IN HIS BOX WITH TWITTER ADMISSION was last modified: October 23rd, 2014 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:All-Star AwardsdonegalEamonn McGeeGAAnewsSportlast_img read more


first_imgLetterkenny band Apollo 6 will represent Donegal at the Irish Youth Music Awards final after claiming victory in the Donegal Heat, which was held in Voodoo INK last Saturday.The event, which was co-ordinated at local level by the Donegal Youth Service, saw 16 finalists take to the stage in what was a great day’s entertainment.Apollo 6 consist of Eilis Cusack (vocals), Ashley Kavanagh (guitar), Thomas McDaid (bass) Chris Cullinane (guitar) John O’Connell (drums). They will now represent the county at the Irish Youth Music Awards National Final in Liberty Hall in Dublin on April 28th. Dungloe band The Loose Bananas finished a very close second when the votes were counted, also winning best original song, meaning they will now have their song performed by Apollo 6 in the national final. The Irish Youth Music Awards is unique in that the regional final works off a principle where all the competing bands have one vote and they have to select who they think will represent the county best at national final. This is where the work really begins also however, as fellow bands will now be asked to work together to support the young Letterkenny band. If Apollo 6 is successful in the national final all the local acts get to be part of a professionally recorded album in Dublin.This is the 5th year of the Irish Youth Music Awards, with Donegal claiming the Paul Clancy Songwriting award in 2011, having previously won the overall award in 2008. At the national final there is also the added bonus of all the bands learning a little bit more about the music industry and meeting representatives from the Irish music industry, and they are judged on all aspect of the Donegal team’s project, such as putting on preparation gigs, photography, styling and fundraising efforts to help bring the band and supporters to the national final.The Donegal Youth Service would also like to thank all at Voodoo INK for hosting the event.The Irish Youth Music Awards are a Youth Work Ireland Initiative.

Lawsuit Accusing Yelp of “Implied Extortion” Dismissed

first_imgTags:#news#web Related Posts mike melanson Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic…center_img A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… A judge has thrown out a lawsuit accusing local business review site Yelp of extortion. The lawsuit made a number of allegations against Yelp, accusing it of acting in a way that added up to “implied extortion,” wherein businesses were said to be treated differently on the site according to whether or not they advertised with Yelp.Today, a judge dismissed the lawsuit on a number of grounds, including that some allegations were “entirely speculative.”According to Eric Goldman, a professor of law at Santa Clara University, the case isn’t quite over yet, as the plaintiffs can amend their complaint, but the intro to the dismissal seems to be clear in its idea.U.S. District Judge Marilyn Patel’s dismissed the case, writing “this case is nothing more than an improper attempt to stifle consumer opinions about Plaintiff’s businesses and defeat the broad immunity afforded to online services like Yelp’s that provide a forum for protected consumer speech.”Goldman says that Judge Patel breaks down the complaint into four groups – that Yelp removed positive reviews after the plaintiff declined to purchase ads, that Yelp kept reviews in violation of its TOS, manufactured its own negative reviews and that it told the plaintiff that paying for ads would improve its rating on the site.The judge decided that several of these complains were “entirely speculative.” On the second allegation – that Yelp maintained negative reviews in spite of its TOS – Judge Patel writes that “Yelp cannot be held liable on a theory that it extorted plaintiffs by refusing to de-publish negative business reviews.”If the plaintiff can add more details to convince the judge that their complaints have merit, however, the case could feasibly move on from there. 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Marketlast_img read more
