Speaking to chief sports reporter Dave Kidd, Rose said: “I am opinionated and I might not have long left in football.“One thing is for sure, for the rest of this career, I will play this game how I want to play it and, while I am not going to disrespect anyone, I am going to voice my opinions.”He also clarified in that interview that he is not seeking a transfer out of Tottenham.33 Danny Rose is determined to see out the remaining 18 months of his contract first given to him by Spurs chairman Daniel LevyCredit: Rex Features TOTTENHAM defender Danny Rose insists he will see out the 18 months left on his contract despite claiming the club want to sell him.The left-back was speaking while on international duty with England, where he maintained he will “not be going anywhere until my contract is finished”.3 Danny Rose, pictured with boss Mauricio Pochettino, says he will see out the remaining 18 months of his contract with TottenhamCredit: EPARose, 29, was believed to have been close to a move to Watford on transfer deadline day, but the deal fell through.He has since gone on to be a regular starter this season for Mauricio Pochettino and has kept his place in the England squad.Last season, despite many claiming he wasn’t up to his usual standards, he still featured in 37 games for Tottenham.He was named in the PFA Team Of The Year two seasons running previously.NO NEW CONTRACT ON OFFERSpeaking to The Standard he said: “It’s pretty obvious what happened [in the summer].”People upstairs at Tottenham were trying to do what they were trying to do. I’ve said [to them] I’ve got 18 months left on my contract and I’m not going anywhere until my contract has finished.”In January, you’re probably going to hear something [about my future].”I’m telling you right now that I’m not going anywhere until my contract is finished.”[Tottenham chairman] Daniel Levy told me in the summer there was no new contract for me at Tottenham, which is fine.”I respect that.

At least fifty Liberian parents yesterday received U$100.00 each, amounting to U$5,000.00 from Street Child of Liberia, through Street Child UK, as part of its Family Business Scheme.Presenting the amount at a program held at the auditorium of the Educational Promoters in Chocolate City, Gardnersville, its board member, Sumo Dangbuah told the beneficiaries, majority of them women, “This grant is meant to help you make businesses to ensure that your children don’t return to the street.”It is Street Child’s second grant presentation, held at the same venue a couple of weeks ago, which also awarded 50 parents, each receiving U$100.00.The parents are beneficiaries of Street Child whose children were identified, registered and reunited with them. Described as Family Business Scheme, the grant is to ensure their sustainability, according to the Project’s coordinator Mrs. June-Rose Dangbuah.Mrs. Dangbuah told the Daily Observer that the beneficiaries went through a day-long ‘how to start and manage a business seminar.’Beneficiaries interviewed by the Daily Observer expressed appreciation for the grant and promised to use the money and the knowledge gained at the seminar to help their children.“We are excited at this program,” a spokesperson told the Daily Observer, “this money can help us.”There are more than 400 children beneficiaries in the Street Child of Liberia program.He said through a process of counseling, Street Child provides families of street children a package of support that aims to enable them to lift themselves out of extreme poverty and to afford the costs of educating their children. Yesterday’s program was assisted by a team of Street Child of Liberia volunteers.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
As with most things in Hollywood, it’s about who you know. Family friend Namrata Singh Gujral was shopping for financiers for her screenplay when Gill and her father, Gladwin Gill, took notice and came on board as her backers. “It was such a pleasure to have a friend who believes enough in the film that she came in with the help of her dad to wrap up some much-needed financing to get the movie started,” said Gujral, who also plays the lead and shares producer and screenplay credits. Gill said she was drawn by the film’s theme of assimilation and cross-cultural identity. In the movie, Shelley leaves her home in the Himalayas for Los Angeles to find her childhood love, and she finds herself caught between worlds. “She learns how to keep her cultural identity while still embracing the positive things America offers,” said Gill, who confronted similar issues and whose father is Pakistani and mother is from the Philippines. “She becomes her own person.” While Gill’s future in the pictures is uncertain – she still has to finish college – she did learn a few things. “Movies are hard to make,” she said. “Very stressful.” firstname.lastname@example.org (818) 546-3304160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

GLENDALE – While most high school seniors were worrying about their future and what to wear to the prom, Natasha Gill was working her Hollywood connections. Gill, 18, has an executive producer credit in the locally made independent film “Americanizing Shelley,” which she earned from working behind the scenes during her last year in high school. She also nabbed a small role as a makeup artist. “I missed out on a lot of homework. I don’t know if that’s a bad thing,” said Gill, a Glendale native who just finished her freshman year studying political science at Pepperdine University. “It was college application time, and you have to make sure your GPA’s up. I didn’t sleep for a year.” The feature, described by its producers as “Pygmalion” meets “Bend it Like Beckham” meets “My Big Fat Greek Wedding,” began a weeklong run Friday in Los Angeles and Glendale.
0Shares0000Jordan Henderson says Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp (left) ‘knows better than everyone else’ about signings © AFP/File / FABRICE COFFRINILONDON, United Kingdom, Aug 5 – Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson says manager Jurgen Klopp’s judgement in the transfer market should not be questioned despite a lack of heavyweight signings in the transfer window.The Reds have added just teenagers Sepp Van Den Berg and Harvey Elliott to a squad that won the Champions League and finished second to Manchester City with the third-highest points total in Premier League history. There has been criticism of Klopp for not making a significant signing to help his side’s quest for a first domestic title since 1990, but Henderson said that was unwarranted.“If the manager hasn’t signed anyone then he knows better than everyone else,” said the midfielder.“I think we’ve got a fantastic squad of players, we’ve shown that. We can use everybody, we’ve got big players (Naby Keita and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain) coming back from long-term injuries, which is like new signings as the manager says.“We believe we’ve got a strong group in the changing room, a strong team, and we’ve just got to keep learning, keep improving on the training pitch, keep doing what we’ve been doing for a long time now, and keep staying hungry for more success.”Liverpool lost to City on penalties in the Community Shield on Sunday but their second-half display suggests they can challenge the reigning champions this season, which gets under way on Friday when the Reds host Norwich.Liverpool finished with 97 points last season, losing just one match, and they will have to maintain similar standards to have a chance of usurping Pep Guardiola’s City.However, Henderson stressed the quality of the performances could be improved despite the club’s impressive points tally.“We can’t always think back to what we did last season. We’re looking forward, we want to improve as a team,” he said.“There were a lot of games last year where we didn’t play particularly well and play as well as we like and we did grind results out at times.“Performance-wise we can be much better and that’s what we’ve got to focus on. Performance has got to be improving all the time.”0Shares0000(Visited 3 times, 1 visits today)

Another historic shop on Letterkenny’s Main Street has been forced to close.Classic Casuals has been trading as a men’s clothing out for more than two decades.Before that the shop was known as the Prefect Tailor. Owner Sean Foody was a hugely well-known and respected businessman during that time.This week members of the public reacted with shock and regret at the news of the closure which took place on Saturday last.“It’s just another sign of the times. People aren’t spending money on clothes anymore but it seems so unfair.“Sean and the lads in Classic Casuals were always a pleasure to deal with. They went that extra yard to look after their customers. “They would always be pleasant when you needed anything special,” said a customer.
