Hazard converted a 77th-minute penalty to set Chelsea on its way to a 2-1 win at Newcastle in an embarrassingly one-sided game at St. James’ Park, and a third straight victory to open the season.The three points were only secured for Chelsea because of an 88th-minute own-goal by Newcastle defender DeAndre Yedlin, but few could begrudge Chelsea the win.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSJapeth Aguilar wins 1st PBA Finals MVP award for GinebraSPORTSTim Cone still willing to coach Gilas but admits decision won’t be ‘simple yes or no’And Hazard, in particular.“I feel very tired,” Hazard said, with a wry smile, after being asked about his treatment by Newcastle’s players. “But at the end, we won the game.” LATEST STORIES Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri had suggested Hazard might only play an hour, with the Belgium international working his way back to full fitness after a late return following his exertions at the World Cup in Russia.As it turned out, Hazard played the full 90 minutes against Newcastle and was like a magnet for the ball — and for tough tackles by Newcastle players. Mohamed Diame chopped him down twice in the first half, and one foul by Matt Ritchie bundled Hazard off the playing surface and toward the advertising hoardings.Hazard had the last laugh, though, and is set to thrive in the attacking, possession-based approach that Chelsea is adopting under Sarri.Chelsea enjoyed 79 percent possession in the first half. At one stage in the second half, the percentage soared to 90 with Newcastle manager Rafa Benitez seemingly having told his players to retreat when Chelsea had possession.“I have never seen a Rafa Benitez side play with five defenders,” said Sarri, who replaced Benitez as coach of Italian side Napoli in 2015. “I think it is very difficult to play here for every team — not only us.”ADVERTISEMENT Chelsea’s Eden Hazard, centre, celebrates scoring his side’s first goal of the game against Newcastle, during their English Premier League soccer match at St James’ Park in Newcastle, England, Sunday Aug. 26, 2018.

Yedlin, who set up Joselu for the equalizer in the 83rd minute, stretched his leg out to block a shot from Marcos Alonso in the 88th and contrived to divert the ball into his own net.Newcastle has one point from three games.MITROVIC DOUBLEAs Newcastle stumbles early in the season, one question seems especially pertinent: Why did it let go of Aleksandar Mitrovic?The Serbia striker has been one of the most impressive strikers in the Premier League so far and moved onto three goals for the season with a double for Fulham in its 4-2 win over Burnley.He also struck the post with a fierce shot that rebounded to Andre Schuerrle, who tucked the ball home for the clinching fourth goal at Craven Cottage. Jean Michael Seri also scored for Fulham, with a rasping effort from outside the area.Mitrovic wasn’t trusted at Newcastle by Benitez, who was happy to see the striker leave for Fulham for a reported fee of $28.9 million.WATFORD’S STRONG STARTMany would have expected Liverpool and Chelsea to be on maximum points after three games. Few would have thought Watford would be there alongside them.With Watford beating Crystal Palace 2-1, it is only the fourth time in its 137-year history that the team has won its first three games of a league season, and the first time in the Premier League.

The South African Ambassador to Liberia, Masilo Mabeta, announced at the weekend that his government had decided to begin issuing visas to Liberians. This is wonderful news because it will save our people the costly and embarrassing inconvenience of traveling to neighboring countries to obtain S.A. visas.Ambassador Mabeta went to the Foreign Ministry last Friday to inform Foreign Minister Augustine Ngafuan about the S.A. government’s decision. Mr. Ngafuan thanked the Ambassador profusely and under the same breath pleaded with the European Union to emulate South Africa’s example. It is hard to understand why the Europeans are continuing to punish Liberians with the humiliating, costly and time-consuming necessity to travel to neighboring countries for visas to enter Europe.If each European nation thinks it too costly to set up a consular section in its embassy in Monrovia, why can’t the whole of Europe mandate the European Union Delegation to Liberia to handle this aspect and save Liberians all the trouble, including time and cost of traveling to Abidjan, Abuja, Accra, Dakar, Freetown to get a European visa?In 2010 following a harrowing experience traveling from Monrovia to Accra and to Abuja in search for a Schengen for his scheduled travel to Austria and Germany, the publisher of the Daily Observer wrote an odyssey which was published in this newspaper. It claimed the immediate attention of the Ambassador of the Federal Republic of Germany, Bodo Schaff, who said he had immediately reported the matter to the Foreign Office in Berlin. After reading Mr. Best’s odyssey, Ambassador Schaff did not only apologize to the Liberian people for all the inconveniences; he also pledged to work with his government toward redressing the situation. Alas, the good, friendly and effective Ambassador most probably did what he could, and has since ended his tenure and returned to Germany. But the problem remains. If a Liberian or person or any other nationality residing in Liberia wishes to travel to Europe, he or she still has to go to one of those African capitals to apply for a visa. In his September 28 and 29, 2010 odyssey, Mr. Best said he had first gone to Accra and the German embassy there told him to go to the Austrian embassy in Abuja, Nigeria. He traveled to Abuja the next day and was told that he should rather go to Dakar. He told them that that would make him late for the event in Vienna should he go to Dakar. It was upon the kind intervention of the Liberian Ambassador in Abuja, Alhassan Conteh, that the Austrian embassy finally relented, and the Observer publisher was able to get the visa.Mr. Best, a born Liberian, could not understand why it caused him so much trouble getting German and Austrian visas when Liberia has been for nearly two centuries Germany’s closest African friend. The Germanic states, Mr. Best said in his essay, became in 1848 among the first foreign powers to recognize Liberia’s independence. “There have almost always been cordial diplomatic and sisterly relations between Germany and Liberia. Indeed, before the Second World War, it was Germany that dominated the Liberian economy . . . it was German merchants that shipped Liberian produce, including coffee, cocoa, piassava, palm oil, palm kernels, pepper and other products to Europe and elsewhere. Most of the medical doctors in Liberia were German . . . until World War II when Germans had to leave Liberia. But following the War [long before most African states gained independence from their European colonizers] Liberia resumed very cordial diplomatic relations with Germany. President W.V.S. Tubman and Conrad Adenauer, [Germany’s] first post-war Chancellor, were very good friends, and exchanged state visits in the 1950s and 1960s. This friendship led to many, many Liberians pursuing professional studies in Germany in a wide range of fields, including Architecture, Engineering, Medicine, Natural Science, Philosophy, Social Science and Vocational and Technical training. In the mid-1960s German industrialists, Eugene Plotzky, invested in the Bong Mining Company . . . The German government built one of the biggest and most beautiful embassy compounds in Monrovia, which spanned Tubman Boulevard to the Atlantic Ocean.”We urge the EU and all European embassies in Monrovia to do their best to ease the pain of Liberians by pleading with their governments to mandate the EU Delegation in Liberia to start issuing Schengen visas in Monrovia.

Body in shallow graveZaila SugrimThe husband of 37-year-old Zaila Sugrim, whose body was discovered on Tuesday in a shallow grave at Crane, West Coast Demerara (WCD), has confessed that he shot his wife to the head and then set her body on fire before burying it.In his confession to Police on Tuesday, the businessman detailed how he killed his estranged wife. Sugrim’s body was found on a property near her husband’s home after she was reported missing on Saturday last.On Tuesday, Police swooped down on the businessman after they received information that he picked up his estranged wife at Vreed-en-Hoop, West Coast Demerara, and that was the last time she was seen alive. Investigators made a major breakthrough after an examination of the man’s car revealed blood in the trunk.Speaking with Guyana Times, Sugrim’s borther, Ahmad Haniff, said his sister was burnt beyond recognition. Sugrim went missing on Saturday after she left her brother’s Golden Grove, East Bank Demerara (EBD) home to be picked up by her estranged husband at the Vreed-en-Hoop Stelling.The mother of five was reportedly visiting her estranged husband’s home to celebrate one of their children’s birthday. However that was the last time she was seen alive.Relatives told this newspaper that Sugrim suffered 15 years of abuse at the hands of her husband and was forced to stay away from her relatives.In 2018, Sugrim had finally mustered up the courage to leave her husband, the owner of a gas station, which is located in front of the house where they lived and a stone throw away from where her body was found.Relatives said Sugrim’s decision to leave her husband was made following a severe beating, which left her hospitalised. After contacting her family after years of no communication, Sugrim took the suspect to court where he was charged for unlawfully and maliciously causing her bodily harm.However, after informing the court that he was the sole breadwinner for his family, he was released on bail was ordered to not go within 100 feet of the now dead woman.On Thursday last, Sugrim’s brother said his sister had visited the suspect’s home where she spent time with her children. That visitation was without incident and as such, Haniff noted that his sister informed him that she was going over again on Saturday.However, the family became worried when several calls placed to Sugrim’s phone on Saturday evening went unanswered.As such, on Sunday morning, a report was made at the Diamond Police Station. After relatives made additional reports on Monday at the said Police Station, a group of ranks swooped down on the suspect’s home.After much interrogation, the suspect finally broke down and confessed that he indeed killed his estranged wife and led Police to where he buried her body.
1 Axel Witsel in action for Belgium Chelsea target Axel Witsel has verbally agreed to join AC Milan but the deal has hit a snag over the transfer fee involved.The Belgian midfielder, who has been monitored by Jose Mourinho’s scouting team at Stamford Bridge for over a year, has told Zenit St Petersburg he wants to test himself at one of Europe’s powerhouse clubs.But the 26-year-old’s £21.5m price tag is much higher than Milan are willing to part with for the former Standard Liege and Benfica man, opening the door for Chelsea to make a late bid and match Zenit’s asking fee.It has been revealed by the player’s agent, Riccardo Napolitano, that the San Siro giants will only shell out £14.3m for Witsel despite the Belgium international insisting Italy would be his first-choice destination.Advisors from Milan are set to meet with Zenit officials at the end of this week to try and come to an agreement over the transfer, while Chelsea will wait in the wings and make their next move based on the outcome of those talks.

The 31-year-old, who has 87 previous convictions, admitted carrying out the assaults at the couple’s address at Fairmount, Milford on a number of different dates.Dunleavy told Judge Paul Kelly he wanted to get the charges out of the way.The court was told that the accused had attacked the woman on a number of occasions.On December 18th he admitted to choking and pushing the young woman with whom he has a child.On December 21st, he came to the house from which he was then barred and kicked the door handle in.On October 11th, 21017, the woman said she had been assaulted by Dunleavy when attacked her in her bedroom.Gardai said the woman complained he had sat on top of her in her bedroom, applied pressure to her nose and then headbutted her.On another occasion he attacked her home using a sledgehammer when he attempted to break down the door of the house.Solicitor Donough Cleary said this was very much a domestic dispute which had now been resolved but the Director of Public Prosecutions had decided to press forward with the matter.He said the alleged victim in the case was now in court speaking up on behalf of his client in a “supportive role.”However, Judge Paul Kelly said this was a very serious case considering there was evidence that the accused allegedly pressurised the woman into withdrawing her evidence.He said this was a situation where a woman had been assaulted on three separate occasions by a man who had been given numerous chances but had breached protection orders.He said “A message has to be sent out that women are entitled to be protected in their homes and that is what protection orders are for.“If people come to other people’s homes and inflict violence, then that cannot be tolerated.”He sentenced Dunleavy to three months in prison for the Section 2 assault and backdated it to December 28th.He also imposed two other two month sentences for assault and criminal damage but all sentences are to run concurrently.Man jailed for three months for series of vicious assaults on girlfriend was last modified: February 7th, 2018 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:assaultcourtdonegalGardaigirlfriendKevin DunleavyMilford
A man accused of the sexual assault of an underage girl has been allowed to change his bail conditions to spend Christmas living close to his alleged victim.The accused man, who cannot be named to protect the identity of his alleged victim, lives in a remote part of Co Donegal. He had been ordered to live in Letterkenny in recent months until his trial at Letterkenny Circuit Court and ordered not to live near the alleged victim or have any contact with her.However, the man applied to have his bail conditions varied so he can visit and stay with his family from Christmas Eve until St Stephen’s Day.Gardai told the court that they were objecting to the man’s application on a number of grounds.A Garda Sgt said he had fears the man would try to contact the alleged victim if allowed to return home.He also said there was an allegation that the accused man tried to contact his alleged young victim to ask her to persuade her mother to drop the case against him.He is also alleged to have contacted his victim by Snapchat.The Garda added “I would have a fear that he would contact her and put her under pressure that she would withdraw the allegations.”Barrister for the accused Peter Nolan asked his client if he understood all the conditions of the bail and he said he did.“You know the ramifications of breaching your bail?” asked Mr Nolan and the accused replied he did.Mr Nolan added that it would be suicidal if the man was seen trying to contact the girl saying that everybody in the locality knew him.Having considered the matter, Judge John Aylmer said he was “going to take a chance on him for a very short period of time.”He said he hoped he had learned his lesson from the last time he breached his bail conditions.He set down a number of conditions on which the man could return to his local area and spend the Christmas holidays.They include that he refrain from socialising and not to have any contact with his alleged victim.If he breaks any of these conditions he will be at risk of losing his bail, added Judge Aylmer.Court allows man facing sex assault charge to spend Christmas near alleged victim was last modified: December 19th, 2018 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:bailCHristmasdonegalsex assault
Adrian Hanlon has been dropped from the Donegal senior football panel due to a breach of discipline, Jim McGuinness has confirmed.“We have dealt with the matter internally and we’re happy enough that it has been dealt with internally,” McGuinness said.Hanlon, who has been on the county panel since 2009, made a number of substitute appearances in the Allianz Football League campaign but he started at corner-forward in the Ulster SFC clash with Antrim earlier this month. McGuinness also confirmed that Rory Kavanagh has returned to training with the county.“Rory would be the only man we’d have a concern over, but at this stage I don’t think he’s a doubt for the Cavan game,” he said.MORE TO FOLLOW ON DONEGALDAILY.COMHANLON AXED FROM COUNTY SQUAD was last modified: May 28th, 2011 by gregShare 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)
Finn Harps have been handed another blow with the news that FOUR players will miss their crucial clash away to Wexford Youths in a fortnight’s time. Harps were defeated 1-0 by UCD earlier this evening at the Belfield Bowl.An instinctive finish from Robbie Benson in the second-half condemned Ollie Horgan’s side to defeat in what was a scrappy encounter. Harps lacked a cutting edge throughout and now face a huge game against Athlone at Finn Park on Friday.There was more woe for Harps off the pitch with Packie Mailey sustaining yet another injury as he hobbled off after the hour mark.Tommy McMonagle saw red late-on and he will now miss their crucial clash with Wexford Youths along with Damien McNulty, Ciaran Coll and Kevin McHugh.Harps entertain Athlone on Friday night and will hope they can return to winnings ways before their top of the table clash with Wexford Youths. Harps remain on top but missed the opportunity to put daylight between them and Wexford as well as third-placed UCD.
