The 29-year-old has been the subject of rumoured bids from Sydney clubs and it’s understood he’s also wanted by the Storm, but Green said on Monday a decision on his future wouldn’t be made until after Melbourne’s finals campaign.Green signed for Melbourne in 2015 and has made a huge impact on the club over the past two seasons but will make sure all his time and energy is put into this finals series, and says the contract will be dealt with at a later date.”I think I’ll probably wait [until after the season is over] to be honest. The main focus is making sure we win our footy games, we don’t need any distractions for the team,” Green said. “The main focus at the moment is just making sure we get back into some form heading into the finals, so I’m sure that’ll sort itself out in due course.”Before the finals series begins the Storm will be involved in one more huge game, as the minor premiership goes in the line on Saturday night.After the loss to the Broncos and the Sharks’ come-from-behind win over the Roosters on the weekend, the top two sides are separated by just one point, meaning the winner will take home the JJ Giltinan Shield.”It’s an important one for us. We’re looking to bounce back from last week’s performance, we were probably a little bit lacklustre in terms of energy so we need to rectify that this week when we come up against a very good Cronulla Sharks team who put in a good performance against the Roosters,” Green said.Despite sitting on top of the table Melbourne have lost two of their past three games, and consistency is now a big issue for the Victorian club heading into the finals.Green said over the past three weeks his side has fluctuated between good and bad performances and knows they need to bring the energy each week from here on out if they’re to make it to October. “I thought we were quite flat when we played the Raiders a couple of weeks ago, and then we had a short turnaround and played with a heap of energy against Manly and put up a good performance,” Green said.”We then probably went back to that performance against the Raiders on the weekend, so it’s something Craig’s spoken about and something we need to sort out if we want to be a threat in this competition.”

With a contract until June 30, 2021, Benfica already tried to sell the player last summer, but without success in his attempts. In what we have of course, Fejsa has played only five games, mostly in September, due to the injury of Gabriel Pires. The absence of the expepinero in the spinal cord opened a temporary gap in the eleven that, recovered the Brazilian, closed. Fejsa still does not count for Luis Filipe Viera.Signed in 2013, the situation is new for this pivot since in previous courses it was a basic piece in the Eagles. Since 2015 their participation has not dropped from 28 games per season. Last year he came to play 33. In the seven and a half seasons he has been incarnate player, he has scored only two goals, good proof of its eminently defensive profile.The Leganés seeks for the current winter market a half center, a band footballer and a central, although it is the first two positions that most urgently need a club to make more additions as a goalkeeper or a center forward depending on the options offered by the market. The Leganés has asked about the situation of Ljubomir Fejsa, 31-year-old Serbian defensive center currently in the ranks of Benfica. The blue and white club does not dislike the profile of the Balkan, but it generates many doubts its physical conditions. Tending to suffer muscle problems, in Butarque they are suspicious that the player can perform at the level demanded by the elite in Spain.It is these doubts that, right now, makes the Lega see nothing clear of its incorporation despite the fact that Benfica would not accept his departure with bad eyes. As told by the Portuguese newspaper O Jogo and has been able to confirm AS, in case of leaving, the player would do so as a loan, although it is not ruled out that the Lisbon were granted the freedom letter, an aspect for which the fundamental impediment is their high salary, higher than the gross million euros per season.

Widespread consultations overrule an expeditious timeframe as it relates to constitutional reform, President David Granger stated as he explained why his administration was unable to fulfil its manifesto promise toPresident David Grangerensure draft recommendations are presented to the National Assembly for approval within nine months.During an interview on ‘The Public Interest’ TV programme, President Granger explained that it is impossible for such a magnitude of undertaking to be completed in nine months.He outlined that the availability of a framework for constitutional reform is an indication of the A Partnership for National Unity/Alliance For Change (APNU/AFC) coalition’s determinedness in keeping its promise.Moreover, he underscored the importance of the consultation process.“I have asked for the process to be consultative because we have had different opinions on the constitution since in the mid-1970s and I feel the people of Guyana should have a constitution that is not subjected to acrimony,” the President said.In this regard, he stated that those in charge of the constitutional reform process must embark on widespread consultation across the country in order to capture the concerns of the public.“I would like to see more than rushing to timeline, I would like to see thorough consultations countrywide and those consultations must be countrywide and not boardroom consultations,” he said, noting that those leading the charge must travel to the various outlying communities to get the citizens’ views on these matters.According to the APNU/AFC Coalition Election Manifest 2015, it will ensure the establishment of a Constitutional Reform Committee with a mandate to complete consultations, draft amendments and present same to the National Assembly for approval within the first nine months in Office.With more than a year gone, Cabinet is still in the process of reviewing the report of recommendations on constitutional reforms submitted by the Steering Committee.The report was handed over to Prime Minister Moses Nagamootoo on April 30, 2016 by Convener and Chairman of the Constitutional Reform Steering Committee (CRSC), Attorney Nigel Hughes.The committee was established by government last August to define the scope of the actual reform process, and formulate the terms of reference and mechanisms for consultation to establish a Constitution Reform Commission (CRC).It is expected that a CRC will come on stream and it is this commission which will effect the changes to the Constitution.The report recommends the reduction in the powers of the presidency, among other matters.The manifesto had outlined the need to rebalance the powers and responsibilities of the Prime Minister and the President in a manner meant to reduce abuse, avoid conflicts of interest, and facilitate the more efficient execution of state functions.Previously Prime Minister Moses Nagamootoo had noted that it is critical for changes to the constitution prevail before General and Regional Elections 2020.

National U-23 soccer squad, Satellites also known as the Liberia Olympic football team, is expected today to host triple Super Cup title holder, BYC I, in continuation of friendly engagements at the Antoinette Tubman Stadium in Monrovia. The time is 8:30am.Today’s match may likely conclude the final selection of the 20-man squad against Ghana’s Black Meteors in Accra in the 2015 CAF Cup U23 finals first qualifying round on Sunday, April 26.A successful two-leg tie against the Black Meteors would see the Satellite (U-23 Lone Star) play Congo in the second qualifying round.If the Satellites (U-23 Lone Star) survive that test too, they will face Nigeria in the final qualifying round, which looks like a difficult qualification route for the Thomas Kojo’s boys.The April 26 encounter in Accra would be the junior national soccer team’s first appearance on the continental scene, since the outbreak of the deadly Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) in March-2014.A month ago, two Liberian football clubs, BYC FC and Fassell were ejected on a 2-1 and 4-3 aggregates, which football analysts have graded the two sides of relatively performing satisfactorily having been match-rusty for over eight months owing to the pandemic.The Secretary General of the LFA, Alphonso Armah told the Daily Observer in an exclusive interview yesterday via mobile phone that the Thomas Kojo’s boys would depart the country next Wednesday, April 26 to get acclimatize to the Ghanaian hot weather.The 2015 CAF U-23 Championship qualifying rounds will decide the participating teams of the 2015 CAF U-23 Championship, a youth football tournament organized by CAF for the under-23 national teams of their member associations. A total of eight teams will play in the final tournament, to be hosted by Senegal.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)

… in response to calls for agreement to be adopted for other companiesBy Vahnu ManikchandChairman of the Guyana Revenue Authority (GRA), Rawle Lucas, has stated that cases of delinquentGRA Chairman Rawle Lucastaxpayers will have to be looked at individually before any determination can be made on whether it should be settled.He was at the time commenting on recent calls by the Private Sector Commission (PSC) for a similar procedure – used to resolve the longstanding legal battle on consumption taxes between Demerara Distillers Limited and GRA – to be adopted in dealing with other delinquent companies.“From the point of view of the Private Sector Commission, we wish to urge that the Guyana Revenue Authority now engage other aggrieved companies to apply similar formulae to correct the distortions in the market place resulting from this action,” the Commission said in a statement on Friday.However, in an invited comment, Lucas explained to Guyana Times that in its calls, the PSC is assuming that all delinquent companies have the same problems.“They are assuming that but I don’t know that everybody has the same problems… Was the DDL story the same, I don’t know. I have no idea as to what the cases are but all the cases can’t be the same, I know that for sure,” he stated.According to the GRA Chairman, the cases will have to be looked at individually before any decision can be made for a similar settlement, as was done with DDL. “One has got to look at every case by itself, take the matters case by case. It’s not something where you can just apply a rule,” he noted.Moreover, Lucas pointed out that persons have to also take into consideration that the GRA might have decided to settle the $5 billion debt with DDL because the matter probably constructed badly. “I have no idea if they have the same problem and remember the people who constructed the DDL problem, might have constructed it badly in the first instance. I don’t know if people are taking that into consideration,” he noted.When further probed whether the Consumption Tax assessment that was levied against the local beverage giant was indeed “badly constructed”, the Chairman declined to say, noting that he will not disclose information on any taxpayer’s case.“I don’t and I don’t expect the GRA to be discussing tax payers’ matters in the public. Notwithstanding the fact that DDL might have put a statement on the settlement, the details of that matter still remains private and we do not intend to disclose details of the matter,” Lucas remarked.Last week, DDL announced that it has reached an “amicable” settlement with the GRA thus resolving the longstanding legal battle between the two, which arose out of a Consumption Tax assessment levied against DDL by former Commissioner General Khurshid Sattuar in January 2009 to the tune of $5,392,020,753.However, the legal battle dated back to 2002, when the local beverage giant raised a legal challenge against the GRA on the methodology adopted by the latter for the assessment of Consumption Tax. In February 2005, the High Court found in favour of DDL. The GRA subsequently appealed that decision and on July 31, 2008, the Guyana Court of Appeal unanimously dismissed the GRA’s appeal.But the following month, GRA commenced a new assessment, this time, issuing a new claim billing the company a crippling $5.392 billion. This was again challenged by DDL in 2009 and the High Court had issued an Order Nisi pending the hearing of the matter.However, there has since been much speculation and condemnation of the transactions. Opposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo had strongly condemned the transaction, calling it a “scandalous out of court settlement” that has cost the State billions of dollars in revenue.“The settlement sends the wrong message to the business community; that a company can unilaterally decide to stop paying taxes, while other companies comply with the law, take the matter to court and drag it out until a sympathetic Government comes to power and settles its debts to the State,” the former Guyanese President stated.Jagdeo further outlined that the settlement has opened the door for other companies to seek refunds on taxes paid. “There have already been reports in the Private Sector of other major companies consulting lawyers about this possibility. Management officials from a major local alcohol and beverage producing company have made it clear, in the past when I was President, that the company would be seeking a refund depending on the outcome of the DDL matter,” he noted.

HE never complained about it – not once.But when Seamus Coleman wasn’t picked for the Ireland squad in 2012 for the European Championships, it certainly upset his supporters.After last night’s victory over Bosnia, 2016 in France looks wonderful for the Killybegs man. Sean St Ledger was preferred to the Everton full-back at Euro 2012, when Ireland lost all three matches to Croatia, Spain and Italy.But this time Coleman can get his passport papers in order.“You grow up wanting to be in these tournaments and now I can’t wait,” he said.“From day one, we’ve all believed we can get there. We have had a few difficult moments along the way but what a feeling now – I haven’t experienced anything like that playing for my country. “In the changing room, when the manager spoke to us, it was an amazing feeling. When you are long gone and retired, these are the moments that you will remember.“I was so disappointed to miss out on the last one, although I have no complaints about not being there.“Hopefully I will be in the 23 when we go there (to Euro 2016). It’s an amazing feeling.” DROPPED IN 2012, SEAMUS COLEMAN SAYS HE IS LOOKING FORWARD TO FRANCE 2016! was last modified: November 17th, 2015 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) Tags:BosniaFrance 2016Irelandseamus coleman
