It needs to tell this Club’s supporters what that plan is.”And the Board also needs to consider its own role in this. Is the manager solely accountable? How much has the Board’s line on wages and transfers contributed to player unrest and disaffection? How much did it contribute to the situation we now find ourselves in? And will it change to help support a new manager?”We’d like to put on record our thanks to Mauricio Pochettino, Jesus Perez and Toni Jiminez for the fantastic football and magical moments they have brought us over the last five years.” MAURICIO POCHETTINO’S sacking has been slammed by Tottenham fans.Daniel Levy swung the axe this evening after seeing Spurs win just 25 points from their last 24 league games.1 Axed chief Mauricio Pochettino was extremely popular with Spurs supportersBut the Tottenham Hotspur Supporters’ Trust criticised the timing of the board’s decision, with Jose Mourinho odds-on to take the reins.A hard-hitting statement read: “We’re shocked and saddened to hear our Club has sacked Mauricio Pochettino and his coaching staff.”During his time at Spurs, Poch gave us many of our best moments as supporters, made Tottenham Hotspur a force to be reckoned with again, and forged a strong link with the fans. We will never forget the joy he brought us.”Of course, results in the league have been disappointing for some time. But many fans thought Poch had earned the right to turn it around in the first sustained period of poor form we’ve had during his time at the Club. We now have to look forward and take stock. But there are questions that must be asked of the Board of THFC.”The Club’s statement makes it clear the Board has decided to sack the manager and coaching staff. It is their decision.”We question why this decision was taken at the end, rather than the beginning, of the international break. We question whether the timing of the decision leaves the Club with much choice in who takes over. Tottenham sack Mauricio Pochettino in shock axe after poor run of formlast_img read more

Raúl Bravo: “Seeing your name saying that you sent Kovacevic to murder is crazy”

first_imgOikos operation: “You have to remember that I have been accused of murder and I am here to talk about this. With Kovacevic I have no complaint and I can talk about this issue and a trial that I have pending I can not say anything. One thing has nothing to do with the other. It’s a matter of my lawyers and I’m waiting for the trial to come, stay calm and keep everything clean. “Oikos-Kovacevic Bonding: “I had a great relationship with Darko. There is not a thread. I have not spoken in recent years. It is impossible that they can link me. I have nothing with Darko. I jokingly said that they would say it was me to take off the brown of over”.Kovacevic call: “It has taken two days. I would have called at the time. My family was worried. I didn’t call him. Darko himself when he saw the news will have freaked out. Linking it to the Oikos case is silly. You see that in the press and it worries you. We have neither business nor debt. He has been my companion and nothing else. “Do you plead not guilty?: “When the judge says so, we’ll see. It’s not that he declares me, it’s that I’m innocent because I haven’t done anything wrong.”Actual life: “I am playing in the Gandía and quiet. Enjoying football and family. Waiting for the trial to come and then to work. It is difficult until it is cleaned.” Raul Bravo went through the microphones of “The spar” to talk about his alleged connection with the shooting Kovacevic suffered and his involvement in the ‘Operation Oikos’. The soccer player wanted to clarify that “Kovacevic called him worried” and that “everything comes from a media of pink press of Serbia”. Why do they accuse you of being the author of the shooting?: “I have no idea. With all the hype that has come out of the case so famous someone wants to say the silly one. Darko has called me worried about me. We had a healthy life. It is charismatic. It does not get in trouble. Get up and see one day your name in the newspaper saying that you sent him murdered is crazy. The news that leave blood runs like gunpowder. The people around you are worried. “Serbian press: “I have not had an argument. Kovacevic has told me that everything comes from a pink media outlet in Serbia. I have asked him to go out and talk so that this is settled. He has told me that he could not now and speak. I”.Personar against the media: “I can denounce and put you in another country in a lawsuit. I denounce and throw me five years and when I win they give me 40,000 and I have spent 60,000. I will not denounce.”last_img read more

Ohio results from the 100th American Farm Bureau Federation Annual Convention

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest By Joel Penhorwood and Matt ReeseA number of Ohioans competed and found success at the 100th American Farm Bureau Federation Annual Convention held in New Orleans in January.Annie Specht, a professor of agricultural communication at the Ohio State University, and a member of the Tuscarawas County Farm Bureau, competed at the national level of the American Farm Bureau Federation Discussion Meet.“I was able to make it out of the first round, so we had two different rooms of discussion, and out of the 36 competitors, they ended up taking the top 16. I was lucky enough to make that sweet 16 round. Sadly, I did not move on to the final four,” she said.She said though she was disappointed to not make it to the finals, she was happy to enjoy great discussion with ag professionals from across the country.“The competition is structured the way that we would structure a committee meeting, so you’ve got in most of the rooms, four to five individuals, a moderator who introduces the topic, introduces the participants, and you give a 30-second opening statement. After all the competitors have given their opening statements, you have 25 minutes of conversation,” Specht said. “That conversation is supposed to flow very much like a committee meeting would flow. So you have people asking questions of each other, proposing solutions for whatever the topic is, and then wrapping everything up with each participant having a 60-second closing statement on top of what they’ve already talked about.”A number of topics are covered in the meeting rooms of the discussion meet.“One of my favorite topics to talk about was how we as agriculture can be more inclusive,” she said. “What are some of the things we can do to sort of open those barn doors a little bit and bring different segments of agriculture and different segments of our U.S. population into the industry.”Specht was the winner of the Ohio Farm Bureau Discussion Meet in early 2018. She gave advice to aspiring competitors on how to get involved themselves.“I think getting involved at your county level — talking to your organization director for Farm Bureau — that individual will set you up to compete at the state meet which usually happens in December,” she said. “Then if you’re lucky enough to move on at that point, then you get to compete in the final four, which will actually be happening at the Young Ag Professionals conference here in just a couple of weeks.”In addition to Specht, young agricultural professionals Jess and Adam Campbell from Warren County competed in the national Excellence in Agriculture. The Campbells made it to the Top 10. Eight Ohio county Farm Bureau projects were chosen to participate in the County Activities of Excellence program during the trade show portion of the event.Ohio Farm Bureau also received all four Awards of Excellence that demonstrate outstanding achievements in four program areas: Advocacy; Engagement and Outreach; Leadership and Business Development; and Membership Value. In addition, Ohio received the Scholar Award, which is given to the six state Farm Bureaus with the highest total donations to the foundation within their membership groups. Ohio Farm Bureau also qualified for one of 25 Apex Awards given to states that have increased total contributions to the foundation by 10% or more over the previous year.For more from the 100th AFBF Convention, visit ofb.ag/AFBF19.last_img read more
