Opinion: Why Chelsea must fail for the good of the game

first_img1 Roman Abramovich If you’re not a Chelsea fan, the chances are they are the team you most love to hate.That dubious honour used to belong unequivocally to Manchester United, gorged for so long on the success shaped firstly by Alex Ferguson, and then by Sir Alex Ferguson.Since 2004, however, the landscape has changed and the Blues from west London have replaced the Reds from the north-west on people’s wish-list for failure.Some of that can be attributed to the fact that, like United before them, they keep on winning trophy after trophy. But some of it is down to the fact they stand for the absolute worst of the modern game, a plaything for the rich and to hell with the long-term consequences.And that is why, for the good of football, I hope the sacking of Jose Mourinho comes back to bite Roman Abramovich squarely on the arse I imagine he parks on a pile of silken cushions every evening.Don’t get me wrong, I’ve no particular love for Mourinho. Like many people during his first foray into the Premier League, I found him amusing and a breath of fresh air. Second time around, he’s been little more than a bore and a bully.This season he has cut an increasingly desperate figure – indeed, Dietmar Hamann told talkSPORT in October he looked like a man ‘begging for the sack’. If that was indeed his end game, then once more he has got what he wanted.This, though, represents the tenth managerial change in 11 years since Mourinho was first appointed in June 2004. That attrition rate, you would think, would signal a club in crisis.The trophy haul, however, tells a different tale. Since the self-proclaimed ‘Special One’ walked into Stamford Bridge, the Blues have won four Premier League titles, four FA Cups, three League Cups, the Champions League and the Europa League.Under ten different managers.And that’s why I hope expected caretaker manager Guus Hiddink fails. And why I hope his expected long-term successor, Diego Simeone, also fails. Because if Abramovich’s trigger happy approach continues to reap rewards in the shape of silverware, other chairmen and owners will see it as the blueprint for success.David Moyes was given just ten months to re-shape Manchester United following Fergie’s departure. But are they honestly in significantly better shape now under Louis van Gaal than they were under the Scot?Brendan Rodgers led Liverpool to second place in the Premier League in 2013-14, was named LMA Manager of the Year – the first Anfield chief to win that accolade in 20 years – and signed a new four-year contract in May 2014. Six months later he was sacked. Roy Hodgson, meanwhile, spent just seven months in the Anfield hot-seat. This at a club, remember, famed for its ‘boot room’ factory of managerial consistency.Andre Villas-Boas was given 18 months at Tottenham (although that was twice as long as he was allowed to ‘rebuild the culture’ at Chelsea). His successor at White Hart Lane, Tim Sherwood, lasted six months. He was then granted two months longer than that to try to turn around an Aston Villa ship that has been heading for the rocks for a numbers of years now.Paolo Di Canio was given six months at Sunderland. As was Dick Advocaat.All those decisions may turn out to be the right ones. But what the constant hiring and firing of managers does is give players an excuse and an easy get out clause.Mourinho talked about being ‘betrayed’ by some of his players, but that’s the culture Abramovich’s attitude has created. After all, why bother to be accountable when you know your next boss will be along shortly?The Russian oligarch may be able to stare fondly at a trophy cabinet that suggests he is following the right path. But where is the stability? Where is the future planning? It can’t be coincidence that the last player to come through the junior ranks at the club was John Terry, a man from a different generation.If the owner of a ‘proper business’ conducted his affairs in that way, they would be deemed a basket case. But while it keeps getting results, the practice will continue. And will spread.So, despite this being the season of goodwill to all men, I wish Chelsea a very unhappy New Year.last_img read more

Teens organize concert for hurricane recovery

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREThe top 10 theme park moments of 2019 “Two weeks before, I was watching the news and just seeing everything that happened,” Margaret said. “I was sad.” With her friend Rae Edge, 14, the two booked eight bands “from all over the area,” Margaret said. The concert featured “hard-core … screamy’ music,” she said. She and her crew, made up of family members, charged $5 a head, plus a $3 re-entry fee. About 200 primarily young people showed up, Margaret said. The concert raised $1,037.50, which will be sent to the Salvation Army in Waveland, Miss., said Margaret’s mother, Katie Lira. “If something like that happened to me, I would want them to help me,” Margaret said. MONROVIA — Four years ago, Margaret Lira was touched by the plight of the children whose lives were forever changed by the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. With the help of then-Principal Jill Selak at Mayflower Elementary and her family, Margaret initiated a fund-raiser at the school, “Penny Power,” in which students and their relatives donated coins later sent to the New York PTA to help youngsters through the school community there. Earlier this month, Margaret, 13, watched the destruction and devastation caused by Hurricane Katrina on television and again she wanted to help. This time she organized a benefit concert featuring high school-age bands who performed Sept. 17 at the Monrovia Christian Vineyard, a youth center. The event was definitely different from her Mayflower fund-raiser, Margaret said. She recruited her mother, father Henry Lira, twin 10-year-old brothers, an uncle who is a professional bodyguard, and a cousin, Frank Lira, and his wife, Maria. “I feel pretty good. I’m glad the bands came out and played,” Margaret said. “They are all following up on what is happening with the hurricane.” Another helper who showed up was Selak, with whom the Liras have kept in touch. Selak worked the refreshment table. “It was really well attended,” Selak said. “The teens were so well behaved. I was so impressed and surprised. It was just so well run.” Katie Lira said she was really proud of her daughter. The bands that performed at the concert were Fiddling While Rome Burns, Kingdom, Le Coma Reve, Asaria, The Love Story, Confide, South Bend and LA Assassins.

‘No point submitting motions…they fall on deaf ears’ – Councillor highlights frustration

first_imgA Letterkenny Municipal District Councillor has expressed his frustration at the lack of action on motions submitted by members.Independent Councillor John O’Donnell was speaking at this afternoon’s meeting of the Letterkenny MD.In supporting a motion from Councillor Ciaran Brogan to improve facilities at the bus stop next to the old Oatfield factory, Councillor O’Donnell hit out. “I don’t think there is any point bringing in motions,” said Councillor O’Donnell.“I highlighted this two years ago. All we get are soft answers.“They’re falling on deaf ears most of the time. It is very frustrating.“We are making the reps and are doing what the electorate want. When we follow them up, we get them proposed, seconded and they’re talked about. Nothing is very done and we get soft answers. “We are not bringing motions if they weren’t concerns that our electorate bring to us.”Regarding the improvement to the bus stop, Councillor Brogan was told the roads department have begun negotiations with the NTA with a view to carrying out upgrade works, including the provision of seating.Councillor Brogan said: “It is used by thousands of people on a weekly basis. A lot of people come and go, young and old, and there isn’t so much as a seat.“There is nothing for people with disabilities. For a small amount of money, it could be made more user friendly and attractive. People are frustrated about it and it has been mentioned to me.”‘No point submitting motions…they fall on deaf ears’ – Councillor highlights frustration was last modified: October 11th, 2017 by Chris McNultyShare 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:Councillor Ciaran BroganCouncillor John O’DonnellletterkennyLetterkenny Municipal Districtlast_img read more

DD Fitness: How to stick to your January resolutions

first_imgJanuary resolutions. The time of year where people change their lives and REALLY want to stick to those changes, but find it really, difficult to do so.How then do we break the habit of starting our new healthy regime in January, only to have it fail by February? The answer is in the question!When it comes to January Resolutions, we like to do a bit of Disneyfying. We expect everything to be perfect and our diet and training to be on track and to never veer off course until the exact amount of weight we want to lose, is lost. This expectation of perfection is why so many resolutions fail.Nothing will ever go exactly to plan. Life will get in the way. Family matters will come up. Work issues will arise. General issues might throw you off course.If you had nothing planned except perfection, when these things arise, you have nowhere to go.So, how do we break the habit of starting our new healthy regime in January, only to have it fail by February? Allow yourself to fail!When you are planning your January resolutions, in your plans, plan for failure.Why would you plan for failure? It’s simple, because it will inevitably happen.If you do not allow for something to give along the way, you will be disappointed when it happens and that can lead to you stopping altogether.Failure is part of life. Our reaction to it and how we deal with it is what determines whether we win or lose. What I mean by that is;> If you give up, you’ve lost> If you keep going you’ve wonDon’t give up because you have had 1 bad meal, or a bad day or a bad weekend.Nothing good comes from that.Instead, look at what happened, why it happened and see if you can find a better way around it if something similar comes up again. By looking for solutions you are finding a way to deal with things if something similar were to happen down the road, and it WILL happen, so please don’t think that it won’t.But if you are prepared for it and you are expecting these slight blips, you will be able to deal with them and get back on track after they happen.That is how you stick to your resolutions.#TrainSmartIf you can’t make it to the gym due to having a busy job or life, then our LADIES ONLY online plan that you can do from home might be of interest to you.

Drinking Deeply and Long-Form Content

first_imgA newsletter subscriber sent me a note to ask that I remove him from my email list. He was taken aback by the length of the newsletter. It was 642 words in total. That’s a lot less than a magazine article, and a bit more than a blog post. He complained that the email newsletter was too long.The subscriber who sent me the note is right. For him, the newsletter is too long. If it doesn’t create value for him, then he is right to unsubscribe (and you might think about unsubscribing from anything doesn’t create value for you).Are we losing our ability to read long-form, write long from, and think in more than soundbites? Twitter allows 140 characters. Text messages are limited to 160 characters. The news that you see and hear every day provides you with sound bites, framing a complicated, complex issue up to what can be read in a minute or two. For a lot of information, this might be enough. But if something is important, you need to drink deeply.Sipping from the StreamWhile I was recovering from brain surgery in late 1992, I read a book a day for about 60 days. I told my neurologist that I felt like my brain was on fire. He told me that it was likely compensation, that there is nothing about having a piece of your brain removed that would cause it to operate at peak performance.After about 60 days of recovery, I started back to work. With less time to read, I slowed down to reading a book a week. I kept up this pace while working during the day and attending college at night, and then when I attended law school. No matter what my work or school work required, I maintained a book a week.I was sipping from the stream, making sure I got a small taste of everything as it passed by. But I wasn’t applying as much of what I read as I might have.Drinking DeeplyI’ve intentionally slowed down my reading. Instead of trying to keep up with the stream, I am more selective. I have chosen to drink deeply because the value in reading books and magazines, listening to audio programs, and taking courses is to apply what you have learned.When you sip from the stream, you gain awareness. You get to sample lots of ideas. But you don’t devote enough time and energy to truly benefit, and you have likely shifted your attention from one idea to the next, not gaining much in the way of application.There is a difference between awareness and integration.As you sip from the stream, you need to look for what is most important and most useful to you now. And then you need to drink deeply. You need to find longer form content and spend time studying it. Ask yourself “What part of this do I need to apply to my work?” Or, “How do I begin executing on these ideas now?”Information is essentially free and completely ubiquitous. You carry a good part of the collected knowledge of humankind in the smart phone in your pocket (or more likely, in your hand). Not everything that flies by you is worth your time or your energy. Small sips are not going to quench your thirst.What is worth your time and energy deserves more of your time and energy. When something rises to that level, drink deeply without worrying about what you are missing.How much time do you spend sipping from the stream of information being hurled at you? How much time do you spend drinking deeply?How much of what you see, read, and study are you applying to your life in some useful, meaningful way? How much do you forget within hours?How would your results be improved if you spent more time working on studying and applying a few things instead of trying to keep up with the many novelties and distractions?
