McGUINNESS: MEDIA WITCH-HUNT AGAINST ME – DOOR NOT CLOSED TO CASSIDY

first_imgDONEGAL Senior Football manager Jim McGuinness has accused elements of the Dublin media of launching a ‘witch hunt’ against him and his players – and also revealed that the door wasn’t closed on a return for Gaoth Dobhair man Kevin Cassidy.Speaking at the launch of the Allianz Football League, Jim said his defence of Ryan Bradley after the victory in the first Championship game against Antrim last season had started a media campaign against Donegal.RTÉ pundits on the Sunday Game had said Ryan didn’t deserve the award. “I think from the moment I stood up for Ryan Bradley that there was a media witch-hunt for myself personally and for the team. Some of the things that were said about the team – they were called the Taliban at one stage – was extremely disrespectful,” said Jim.“These boys, a lot of them not in work, are training and training for the good of their county. I’m an unpaid volunteer, if I told you what I was getting for my expenses for the year you wouldn’t believe it. I’m getting nothing out of the game only the love of coaching the boys.“At the end of the day it’s not that important. We don’t want to be going to war with people but there’s boundaries and there’s respect. There was always boundaries in the GAA but now it seems some people feel they can overstep those boundaries.“A lot of the time it’s ex-players, who are making an awful lot of money on the back of people who are out of work and trying their best for their county in a voluntary capacity. Morally, I don’t think that’s correct.” McGuinness admitted tactics against Dublin in the All-Ireland semi-final were ‘extreme’ but he had no real regrets.“The only regret I have is that, about three weeks out from the game, what we were getting through the middle was very exciting,” he said.“We were playing Michael Murphy out the field and he was strong, he was powerful, Christy Toye was coming back to himself and we had Ryan Bradley – we had a lot of strong, big men with power and pace and we were practising the game plan, the ability to turn the ball, work it, hand it to them and then drive through and ask the question.“The only disappointing thing about it was that we didn’t get enough of that over the course of the 70 minutes. If we continued to do that and done the job defensively and continued to be explosive and dynamic then we could have gone on to win that game easily.“I have my own conclusions in my head . For some of them it was psychological, for some of them . . . I think they regressed into themselves over the course of the game. The closer they got to the All-Ireland final, then the more they just wanted to see it out instead of driving towards it. That is a learning curve if that is the case. They can use that this year if they get into that position again.” Asked about dropping Kevin Cassidy for breaking team rules by co-operating with a book written about last year’s championship, McGuinness appeared to leave the door open for a return by referring to other players who had done the same.“Adrian Hanlon had to go last year for an incident and we talked about it, same as the other incident [Cassidy]. It was dealt with at the time and he’s back in now,” said Jim.Asked did this mean that Cassidy could return to the panel, McGuinness replied: “The same criteria apply. Eamonn McGee was another situation.“I wouldn’t close the door, but the bottom line is, our rules and our parameters were very well defined and what happened was so far over the line in relation to our group . . . that’s all I can say on it. I’m not going to go any further on that. I said I wouldn’t speak about it and I’m not going to say any more about it. I’m not going to be drawn on it.” LEAVE YOUR COMMENT BELOW© 2011 donegaldaily.com, all Rights ReservedThe copying, republication or redistribution of donegaldaily.com Content, including by framing or similar means, is expressly prohibited by law.Follow us on www.twitter.com/donegaldailyFollow us on www.facebook.com/donegaldailySell anything on www.donegaldailyclassifieds.comMcGUINNESS: MEDIA WITCH-HUNT AGAINST ME – DOOR NOT CLOSED TO CASSIDY was last modified: January 31st, 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:Donegal GAAdonegal v dublinJim McGuinnessKevin Cassidylast_img read more

Hughes backing Di Matteo and salutes former club for Barca win

first_imgQPR boss Mark Hughes has hailed his former club Chelsea for managing to beat Barcelona last week.Hughes, who remains a favourite among Chelsea fans and also played for Barca, was at Stamford Bridge to see last Wednesday’s game.“It was a fantastic result for the club. They had to be really disciplined and they got the job done,” he said.“It was difficult because they didn’t have a great deal of possession, but they maximised their opportunity when it presented itself. It sets up the return leg fantastically well.“I wish them well. It’s a huge game for them and still a big ask. I think everyone understands that.”And Hughes praised his former Blues team-mate Roberto Di Matteo for the job he has done since being played in charge.The Welshman said: “He’s doing really well. All you can do as a manager is win football matches and that’s what he’s been able to do.“He’s brought Chelsea through a difficult period and is producing the goods. All credit to him.”Advertising on West London Sport Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more

first_img16 September 2015The National Heritage Monument, made up of life-sized bronze statues of precolonial, colonial and anti-apartheid struggle heroes and heroines, at the Groenkloof Nature Reserve in Pretoria, was unveiled on 15 September.There are already more than 50 statues at the monument, but it will eventually house 400. Known as the Long Walk to Freedom, it reflects the country’s journey from the precolonial era to the early wars of dispossession, as well as encompassing the entire liberation struggle.A walk through the newly erected #HeritageMonumentpic.twitter.com/D6gyKao7cu— Lirandzu Themba (@LirandzuThemba)September 15, 2015Some of the statues already erected include the likes of Walter and Albertina Sisulu, Yusuf Dadoo, Charlotte Maxeke, Solomon Tshekiso Plaatje, Alexander Simons, and King Mzilikazi Khumalo.Cast in bronze, struggle icons Walter and Albertina Sisulu will forever hold hands at the National Heritage Monument.

(Image: Mayor of Tshwane, Facebook)“It will be a complex chronicle of our long walk to freedom,” said Gauteng Premier David Makhura. “It will tell the story that many men and women paid a supreme sacrifice to bring freedom in our land. It will tell the story that our freedom was not free.”A must see for tourists“We want this to be a tourism attraction. We want it, in its completeness, to offer a number of things like hospitality and arts and crafts,” Tshwane Mayor Kgosientso Ramokgopa said on SABC news.“It’s going to be a major tourist attraction but also an area where a nation would be able to reflect so that we are able to plan for our future,” said Arts and Culture Minister Nathi Mthethwa.Full historyMthethwa said the South African story had been one-dimensional. This was being corrected through the heritage monument, which was giving a full picture of the country’s history.“We are writing our own story and it is important that we do that because we have to tell the world how we reached 27 April 1994,” Mthethwa said. It was also important to know our history, whether it was good or bad.Many more to see#NHM at #GroenkloofNatureReserve@CityTshwane#Myheritage.

I placed the order and it arrived at my flat the next day with standard shipping.I was very impressedi had to trim and style the thing a bit, which was a challenge since i’ve never had to do that before but for my first really long wig i was not disappointed. It barely fluffed up when i was at the con i wore it to, when friends of mine had struggled with keeping theirs at bay. This was a great buy and totally worth the money i spent on iti’m sooo buying from here againi have attached three photos to this review, one for length pre-styling ((i’m 5’8″)) and one to show how the wig fit pre-styling and one on the day of the convention. Really good wig, its not as thick at it looks but damn it nice. Cant wait to get it on at the festivals this year. Came packed really well, the box it came it keeps it nice and flat too if you dont want to fork out for a proper headstand.

We wanted to open up to the other exhibitors the blessings we have in this barn. We fed some of the dairy kids, some of lamb kids, and Bill Tom opened up the steer barn so we could bring in some acts,” said Michelle Kuhlwein with the Ohio Youth Swine Committee. “We wanted to show 4-H is about family and it doesn’t matter what barn you’re in. Kalmbach Feeds, Apex Clean Energy and Beck’s Hybrids helped make this possible, along with 10 other food sponsors. I hope everybody had a great night.”The event featured the bands Jason Nutt & Highway 70 that performed their ode to showing livestock, “Purple Banners” and North to Nashville.

Stop Selling to the Platonic Buyer

first_img Essential Reading! Get my 3rd book: Eat Their Lunch “The first ever playbook for B2B salespeople on how to win clients and customers who are already being serviced by your competition.” Buy Now There are a lot of generalizations about buyers being bandied about here on the internet.  Here are some you should be aware of:You have no doubt read about buyers being 57 percent through their buying process before engaging with a salesperson (an idea that has been misinterpreted by frauds and phonies and charlatans).There is much lecturing about how much research buyers are doing before making a purchase, there being so much information available, the implication is that buyers know as much as salespeople.Ideas are put out, with such certainty, about what buyers value and what they resist, most of this coming from people who stand to gain from feeding you fear so they can gain financially.Then, there is the idea that buyers don’t accept phone calls.This is the platonic buyer. This is a theory about buyers in general, not the buyer. Even if there is research to back up these assertions about buyers, they are not likely accurate as it pertains to any one buyer.On average, a man is 5’10 inches tall. If you are a tailor or a retailer, you should stock suits for men of this height, that being the average and the point of greatest need—and profitability. Using this fact to make the decision as to what kind of suits to carry is to believe that a generalization is universally true.Your buyer may not be 5’10. They may be 6’4 or 5’3. One contact within your prospective client’s company may indeed be precisely 57 percent through the process of making a complex decision they only make twice in their lifetime. Meanwhile, the rest of their team may be far behind them, maybe at, say, something less than 5 percent through that same process. I am talking about real contacts here, not the platonic kind.Let’s assume the platonic buyer knows as much as you from surfing the internet (I know, this is difficult to imagine, but stay with me here). So, in a couple of hours of reading God knows what on the internet, your platonic buyer has gained all the insight and wisdom of someone who has worked with hundreds or thousands of clients over the course of their career? Let’s use something like Enterprise Resource Planning software as an example. The person who makes a decision to buy ERP might make that decision once or twice in their lifetime, hoping against hope that it will only be one time. How could they know what an experienced salesperson knows?The platonic buyer doesn’t take phone calls. In real life, many buyers do take phone calls, even if it isn’t easy to trade them enough value for them to agree to a meeting. But those are two different ideas. The refusal to meet is less about the medium and much more about the value of meeting.Don’t focus on trying to win the platonic buyer’s platonic business. Focus instead on serving the real people who work inside your dream client companies. They have very real challenges and opportunities, and they very much need your help.last_img read more

first_imgAbout the authorCarlos VolcanoShare the loveHave your say AC Milan boss Giampaolo: I always had faith in Reinaby Carlos Volcano20 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveAC Milan boss Marco Giampaolo thanked his players after their 2-1 win at Genoa.Lasse Schone had Genoa aheead before Theo Hernandez and Franck Kessie struck for the visitors. Pepe Reina secured the points with an injury-time penalty save.Giampaolo said, “I am quite cool-headed during a game, fortunately. I had doubts it was a penalty, but Reina has so much character that I had faith he would save it.“It was a difficult match, we went underwater and were under a lot of pressure, so I praise the lads for not letting go. I didn’t even care if they misplaced a pass or a goal, the important thing was to give a response in terms of character.“I want us to continue with this character, but obviously hope to get a sharper and higher quality style of football in future.“I want to see this team play better football, but it wasn’t possible today because they felt the pressure so much and needed the victory so badly. We had to scrape the last bit of determination and character. I couldn’t ask them for beautiful football today, as we had other objectives.” last_img read more
