Walker woe lifts United, Leicester top

first_imgUnited handed competitive debuts to Sergio Romero, Matteo Darmian, Morgan Schneiderlin and Memphis Depay, while Bastian Schweinsteiger came on in the second half to become the club’s first German player.“The first time you play at Old Trafford is always difficult, but I liked the performance, especially of Darmian,” United manager Louis van Gaal, who was celebrating his 64th birthday, told BT Sport.On goalkeeper David de Gea, dropped amid interest from Real Madrid, Van Gaal added: “He is our best player for the past two seasons, chosen by the fans, so we can’t let him go so easily.”Spurs made a bright start in the Salford sunshine, Christian Eriksen volleying over from Harry Kane’s scooped pass, but they retreated into their shells following Walker’s moment of misfortune.United failed to take full advantage, however, with Young the only player to muster a shot on target, and Eriksen forced Romero — deputising for De Gea — to make two sharp saves in the latter stages.Chelsea launch their title defence at home to Swansea City later on Saturday.Leicester City found themselves on top of the table after Algerian winger Riyad Mahrez inspired them to a 4-2 home win over Sunderland at the King Power Stadium.After Marc Albrighton teed up Jamie Vardy for an 11th-minute header, Mahrez scored with a header from another Albrighton cross and then added a penalty to put Leicester 3-0 up with only 25 minutes gone.– Cabaye strikes –Manchester United’s Memphis Depay (2ndR) celebrates with Wayne Rooney (R) after United take the lead due to an own goal from Tottenham Hotspur’s Kyle Walker at Old Trafford on August 8, 2015.

I can’t be too critical,” said Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe, whose side won the Championship last season.“I’m disappointed with the defeat, but looking forward to the rest of the season.”Norwich City, promoted via the play-offs in May, lost 3-1 at home to Crystal Palace.Wilfried Zaha and Damien Delaney put the visitors in charge before substitute Nathan Redmond hit back for Norwich, but Palace’s star recruit Yohan Cabaye sealed victory in stoppage time.Arsenal host West Ham United and Liverpool travel to Stoke City on Sunday, with last season’s runners-up Manchester City opening their campaign at West Bromwich Albion on Monday.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Leicester City’s striker Jamie Vardy (2nd R) celebrates after scoring the opening goal during an English Premier League football matchagainst Sunderland at King Power Stadium in Leicester, central England on August 8, 2015.

Church of Haile Selassie I Gets Legal Status

first_imgThe Government has officially recognised the Church of Haile Selassie I as part of the religious expression of the Rastafarian movement in Jamaica.This follows the passage of the Church of Haile Selassie I (Incorporation and Vesting) Act, 2013 in the Senate on Friday, October 25, after it was approved by the House of Representatives on October 8.Piloting the Bill in the Upper House, Justice Minister, Senator the Hon. Mark Golding, noted that the legislative establishment of the Church of Haile Selassie I will further legitimise the faith and religious practices of Rastafarians and their families.Noting that this signals a historic moment in Jamaica, Senator Golding said he is particularly pleased that after spending several years before the Private Bill Committee of Parliament, the legislation “has finally successfully emerged from that process”.The Bill seeks to make provision for the incorporation of the Church of Haile Selassie I and to vest certain assets in the church and to allow it to hold property.Supporting the Bill, Opposition Senator, Robert Montague, said he is pleased that a “home grown” religion, has finally received legal status and state recognition in Jamaica.“The Rastafarian movement has contributed significantly and positively to our history. There have been incidences in the past that would need, maybe, some investigation, and lessons can be learned from that…and to encourage the Minister to reach out to the other sector groups so that they too can be legitimate,” he said.Government Senator, Lambert Brown also gave his support for the Bill, contending that it “has been a long road for the Rastafarians” who have been setting positive examples and have been preaching self-reliance as part of the way forward for the country.“I’m happy to associate with all of the progressive and positive contributions that the Rastafarians (have made to the country).  Despite oppression, despite brutality, despite all the negative things said about them by high society, they have led the way. I’m very happy that today, I can participate where we recognise the religious practices of a group of Rastafarians….I’m happy that we are recognising them today and allowing them to be part of the system, because they have been positive,” he said.Among the aims and objectives of the church are to develop the social and administrative mechanisms to organise and centralise the Rastafarian movement according to the operational guidelines, which the federation and the movement see fit; to achieve official recognition for the federation and Rastafarians,  leading towards democratic representation; and to provide cultural and political education for members of the federation, Rastafarians and for others, who conscientiously wish to become informed about the movement.The Church of Haile Selassie I was formed in 1987, by Brother Emmanuel Fox, a Rastafarian activist along with other brethrens.last_img read more

first_imgAS Roma sporting director Monchi announced that the club retain “100%” confidence in under-fire coach Eusebio Di FrancescoThe Giallorossi blew a two-goal lead on Saturday at Cagliari to settle for a 2-2 draw, which left them only eighth in the Serie A table after 15 games.It means that Roma’s five-season run of finishing in the top three in the league is in danger of ending with reports in the Italian media suggesting Di Francesco’s future is on the line.The Italian himself declared that his focus remains on the pitch with Monchi now announcing that the club board retain full confidence in him.“Unfortunately I have talked about this too many times: the position of the club has not changed and our confidence [in the coach] is the same,” Monchi told Sky Italia.Maurizio Sarri, JuventusMaurizio Sarri satisfied despite Juventus’ draw at Fiorentina Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Maurizio Sarri was satisfied with Juventus’ performance on Saturday afternoon after finishing a tough game at Fiorentina 0-0.“When I have belief in a professional I do not easily change my mind. I am a bit confused when I read things about the directors: that there is a war between us, that I want to walk away, that I’m getting angry. Here we have 100% belief in the coach.“It is the same coach who finished third last season and took us to the Champions League semi-finals – nothing has changed.“Sometimes the responsibility falls on all of us, not just one person: we can’t put everything on the coach.”Roma will face Viktoria Plzen in the Czech Republic tonight at 18:55 (CET) with the hope of avoiding defeat to book a last-16 spot from Group G.last_img read more
