Eva Carneiro deserves apology from ‘appalling’ Mourinho, talkSPORT told

first_imgLeading sports physician Peter Brukner has slammed Jose Mourinho’s “appalling behaviour” after the Chelsea boss criticised first-team doctor Eva Carneiro and her medical staff, insisting they deserve a public apology from the manager and the club.Carneiro has reportedly been told she will no longer have a matchday role for the Blues following a bust-up with Mourinho, who branded his staff ‘impulsive and naïve’ following Saturday’s 2-2 draw with Swansea on the opening day of the Premier League season.“I thought it was appalling behaviour by the manager,” Brukner, former head of sports medicine and sports science at Liverpool, told the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast.“The medical staff deserve a public apology, and I’m very disappointed the club hasn’t come out and done something to support them – they were just doing their job.”It all stemmed from an incident which saw an apparently injured Eden Hazard forced off the field, reducing Chelsea – who already had goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois sent off – temporarily to to nine men against the rampant Swans.Fearful his side could concede with the winger off the pitch, Mourinho blasted Carneiro for her intervention, and has since seen to have the club doctor’s role at the club significantly changed.Carneiro will remain as the club’s first-team doctor, but she will not longer play any part in the team’s matchday and training sessions, instead remaining around the Cobham training base.And Brukner – currently doctor for the Australia national cricket team – believes the Portuguese was out of order for his actions, insisting Carneiro and her team were simply doing their job.“Our first priority as doctors and physio is the health and safety of the individual player, and that’s what they were attending to,” he said. “They were doing their job and they’ve been criticised very publicly.“He [Mourinho] has a player [Hazard] who has gone down, has remained down and the referee considered it serious enough to summon the doctor and physio. They went on as they must do, and as a result the player had to come off the field.“What do you expect the doctor to do, just ignore the referee beckoning them on?“They were only responding to the referee’s instruction to come and a treat the player, so to criticise the medical staff publicly in the way that he did was absolutely appalling behaviour.”Alan Brazil disagreed, suggesting the medical staff did not understand the situation and that Hazard perhaps went to ground too easily, which is becoming increasingly common in modern football.To the presenter’s suggestion, Brukner replied: “It’s a whole other issue about players going down too easily.“Maybe he [Mourinho] should be criticising his player for staying down, and not his medical staff for treating him.”last_img read more

Steven Naismith concedes he may leave Everton for first-team football

first_img1 Steven Naismith admits he may have to consider a future away from Everton if he cannot force his way back into Roberto Martinez’s plans.The Scotland international’s season has been filled with frustration so far having been forced to accept a bit-part role for the Toffees.He has started just four Barclays Premier League matches and has not featured at all in the top flight since a 3-0 home defeat to Manchester United in mid-October.However, Martinez is on record saying he does not want to lose the former Rangers attacker and even knocked back an £8million deadline-day bid from Norwich earlier this term.But with the January transfer window set to open in three weeks’ time, Naismith confessed the subject of a move may crop up again.The 29-year-old said: “When Norwich were interested in me in the summer, it was the manager who said he didn’t want it to happen. But as a player you need to think about all your options“The manager said we’d speak about it again come January time so we’ll do that.“At the moment I’m just concentrating on playing my football as part of a great squad and hopefully if I get my chance to play again, I take it.“But you’ve got to weigh up all your options and see where you’re at.“At the start of the season I wasn’t playing then got thrown on nine minutes into the Chelsea game and not many people would’ve seen me scoring a hat-trick. That shows you how quickly it can change.” Steven Naismith last_img read more

first_imgSinn Fein Deputy Pearse Doherty has said he hopes there is light at the end of the tunnel for 24 workers laid off at the RAP packaging plant.Workers at the Derrybeg factory were told of the news this morning with management blaming seasonal factors.“I am concerned to hear this morning of temporary lay offs announced at the packing plant in my own home town. This company is still active and my office has been assured that its their intention to have all of the laid off workers back at work within two weeks. Nevertheless, the loss of earnings over the next few weeks will be a blow to the workers, their families and will have a significant impact in the local area. “While the lay offs announced this morning are temporary, there have been unfortunatley many announcements of permanent lay offs in the county over the past number of years and I am concerned that this is reflective of the lack of an effective and targeted strategy to support businesses in creating sustainable and long term employment, particularly in rural areas.“These lay offs are announced after figures released by Sinn Féin yesterday which show that Donegal bucked the trend in terms of the number of full time jobs created by Enterprise Ireland in 2012 when 180 jobs were created for the region while 309 full time jobs were lost in the same period. Údaras na Gaeltachta created a net total of 11 jobs in Donegal in 2012.“What is clear from the above figures is the complete lack of a targeted Government job creation and job retention strategy for the North West region. Donegal is recognised officially as the most deprived county in the state and west Donegal in particular is suffering under huge deprivation, emigration and unemployment. What has the response of the Government been to this crisis?    “Last year Sinn Féin launched a job creation plan with detailed proposals for a €13billion stimulus programme over four years which would create and retain more than 150,000 jobs. We have set out clearly how these jobs could be created and sustained through targeted investment in key industries. It is time for this Government to get its act together and develop a clear, comprehensive job creation strategy for the county. ”  DOHERTY SAYS HE HOPES WORKERS LAID OFF AT PACKAGING PLANT CAN BE RE-HIRED was last modified: February 19th, 2013 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:Pearse DohertyRAP PACKAGINGlast_img read more


first_imgSinn Féin election candidate for the Glenties Electoral Area, John Sheamus Ó Fearraigh has welcomed today’s announcement by An Post that they have awarded a temporary contract to the assistant postmistress in Bunbeg Post Office, averting its closure next week.Mr Ó Fearraigh said: “Today’s announcement is a step in the right direction and is a direct result of the camapign by the local community to have their voices heard on this issue.“Last month when I organised a public meeting on the potential threat to the post office over 200 people turned out to highlight their concern, with an action committee formed to lobby to retain this post office. Hundreds of locals made submissions to An Post during the consultation period and a petition was signed by over a thousand people. “This effort of the local community has sparked a review of the case and an extension of the contract to consider the huge volume of correspondence received in support of the retention of the post office, however it is important to note that the future of the Post office remains uncertain.“The appointment of a temporary postmistress on a three month contract is a welcome development but we must keep the pressure on to ensure that the long term threat that still hangs over this post office is removed.“I want to commend all of those who rose to the challenge of campaigning to keep our local post office, it is clear that our efforts have not fallen on deaf ears and should act as encouragement for us to continue until the future of the post office is secure.”BUNBEG POST OFFICE SAVED FROM CLOSUURE – FOR NOW was last modified: March 7th, 2014 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

first_imgDeele College welcomed Jason Black to the school last Friday, where he gave a talk to the senior students about motivation and following dreams.Mr Black, who last year became the first Donegal person to scale the heights of the daunting Mount Everest, talked to students about his epic adventure and how he managed to summit the world’s highest peak.A prominent businessman in Letterkenny, Jason is an ideal role model for students, as he not only runs a successful business empire, incorporating Voodoo nightclub and Black’s Centra, he is also known in sporting circles for his time with Letterkenny Rugby Club. With students currently facing into their own ‘Everest’ with the Leaving Cert looming, it was incredible to listen to Jason talk of his journey and the tough and dangerous days that he faced during his ascent to the top of the world.It was refreshing for students to listen to a talk on motivation from someone of the calibre of Mr Black.He also spoke of his journey through school, which was not always a pleasant experience, while he also spoke to the students of the personal hardships, which he endured in his life and the need to overcome what obstacles are placed before you.But it was his tales of adventure in Asia that really captivated the audience, as he described in detail the gruelling effort it took to reach the peak of Everest, which stands at an astonishing 29,029 feet. Throughout the talk, Jason continuously referred to one motto, which he has lived his life by, and it is a motto that he is eager to pass on to the next generation and that motto is ‘always follow your dreams.’EVEREST HERO JASON HELPS DEELE COLLEGE STUDENTS REACH NEW HEIGHTS was last modified: February 3rd, 2014 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:deele collegeJason Blackstudentslast_img read more

Cassini Passes Titan a Third Time

first_imgRaw images from Cassini’s Titan-b flyover from 750 miles (see animation) have been uploaded to the website: Cassini Raw Images (proceed from this link).  Improved, processed images are now being posted at, such as this high resolution of dark terrain.  Look also at JPL the and Cassini Imaging Team websites.  In addition, teams monitoring the infrared, ultraviolet, radio, plasma and magnetic field data will have their results soon.    Scientists are still not sure what they are looking at on Titan.  Better interpretation of surface features will require overlap of radar altimetry with visible and infrared images over the next few months.  The dark and light areas are remarkable for their sharp boundaries and paucity of impact craters, indicating a young surface (see the global composite from October).  Something resurfaced this moon recently, and active geology is probably still going on.  When the infrared images from this encounter are published, they should show remarkable surface details in color (see infrared composite from October).  Scientists are also eagerly searching for evidence of changes since October 26, the previous close flyby at this range (see 10/28/2004 headline).    On Dec. 14, Cassini flies by Dione at 50,000 miles to image the strange frosty streaks that puzzled Voyager scientists.  Also, Cassini recently obtained the best pictures to date of Iapetus, showing tantalizing detail visible on both the dark and light hemispheres.  Closer snapshots of Iapetus are coming January 1.  With a string of spectacular successes since June (see 07/01/2004 and 06/14/2004 headlines) and bigger adventures just ahead, the Cassini team is feeling their excitement rise to a crescendo.Keep your eye on Titan; it’s the moon to watch over the next few weeks as the Huygens Probe mission climaxes on January 14 (see European Space Agency story).  Titan looked like a bland orange fuzzball when Voyager flew by 23 years ago, but now we can finally glimpse the surface under all that dense haze, and see that it is a planet-sized world beckoning a new generation of explorers.  This second-largest moon in the solar system, almost as big as Mercury and the only moon with a substantial atmosphere, is going to have amazing stories to tell – stories that are bound to rewrite theories of the origin of the moons and planets.    If you were a kid during the Apollo moon missions, do you remember what you were doing when those famous Earthrise pictures came down on Christmas eve 36 years ago, as the opening words of Genesis 1 were read by the Apollo 8 astronauts?*  You probably remember the moon landings more than anything else that happened in 1968-69.  Maybe you have kids of your own now.  Don’t let them be bored with life, or waste their time on stupid computer games and Christmas toys that will soon break and be forgotten.  Use this true-life adventure as an opportunity to give them a gift that can last a lifetime: the wonder of new worlds, and the thrill of discovery.(Visited 8 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more
