Miguel Ángel Moyá wants to continue in the Royal Society beyond June This year, when his current relationship with the San Sebastian club ends, he has a unilateral option to renew his contract for another campaign, but has not yet made it effective. It’s more, He has not even informed the Mallorcan goalkeeper of his decision. This has been revealed by the txuri-urdin goal in the SER Chain microphones. “I am comfortable at Real, but I have not received an offer,” he says. The Binissalem footballer, recovered from the inconvenience that have prevented him from being in the last two games, He hopes to face Mallorca on Sunday, which he defended in 5 seasons, between 2004 and 2009. He would play for the first time in this course, while he is looking forward to his future. “I would like to continue until 2021 at La Real Sociedad, but the offer has not arrived. The intentions of the club do not know, but I know they are happy with my performance, “he says sincerely. However, Moyá does not get nervous and is understanding with the position of the entity from San Sebastian. “It is normal for clubs to pause with players of a certain age, as is my case. I am comfortable here, but the football player’s life is not always over where you want, “he says with intrigue. La Real does want to continue counting on his services and has decided to exercise the automatic renewal clause until 2021, but for the moment KO has officially communicated nothing in this regard.

A massive countrywide protest demanding Regional and General Elections and against the ongoing House-to-House Registration which will cause a delay, ensued on Friday as People’s Progressive Party supporters picketed in front of the Guyana Elections Commission (GECOM) offices.Protesters picketing in front of GECOM’s office on Church StreetOrganised by the People’s Progressive Party/Civic (PPP/C), persons also called upon President David Granger to announce a date for new polls as is constitutionally mandated.Court proceedings have already been filed to terminate the “illegal” registration exercise, which began last Saturday, by the Guyana Elections Commission as many took to the streets to voice their concerns over the current political dilemma.The country was swarmed with peaceful picketing as placards voiced the immense need for the elections body and the Head of State to respect the Constitution of Guyana.Former Prime Minister, Samuel Hinds was among the protesters in Georgetown as he urged the President to call a date for new polls. His calls came after Chief Elections Officer, Keith Lowenfield confirmed earlier this week that the Official List of Electors can be renewed with a Claims and Objections period, rather than to formulate a new list.“We are calling on our President to name a date for elections now. We’re calling on GECOM and Mr Lowenfield to start the preparations for elections September 18. He has come out saying that the list can be refreshed with a Claims and Objections period and he should get on with that and suspend the House-to-House Registration,” the former Prime Minister relayed.Hinds told media operatives that Guyanese have a right to express their concerns when legal frameworks, such as the Constitution, are violated or misinterpreted. He clarified that Cabinet should resign and accept its caretaker status.“We need all our people in Guyana. Whether they vote for us or any other party, they have a part in this. They should also be holding out that the Constitution be respected now. Our reading of the Constitution and the CCJ ruling is that the President must call the date for elections. He and his Cabinet and all his people should be handing their resignations and then as the Constitution says, they should stay in office in a caretaker mode so he is the person that has to set the date for elections.”The President made a shocking statement on Thursday that there is no timeline for elections, even though the Caribbean Court of Justice’s orders prescribed that the constitutional deadline for elections must be upheld. Chief Justice Roxanne George provided clarifications which indicated that the deadline for elections will end on September 18, 2019. With this activity in play, there is a great possibility that the Constitution will not be honoured.As such, Executive Secretary of the PPP/C, Zulfikar Mustapha reiterated the opinions of many that GECOM is violating the Constitution by proceeding with the exercise.Mustapha said, “GECOM is violating our Constitution, especially the Chief Elections Officer. GECOM should have never embarked on a House-to-House Registration because the CCJ has ruled that election will have to be held within three months”.He further stated, “We are seeing is a violation of our Constitution and we are urging that GECOM should stop the House-to-House Registration and they should immediately embark on preparation for national and regional elections”.Adding to that, Member of Parliament, Nigel Dharamlall reiterated that House-to-House Registration will not be completed in time for the election deadline, resulting in a substantial delay.“We are protesting the unconstitutional action of GECOM where they have proceeded on House-to-House Registration…This House-to-House Registration is going to take us beyond September 18,” the Opposition MP suggested.Opposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo had pointed out on Thursday that the work plan for the registration activity contained a 290 day period for the registration exercise which will run until February 2020.The People’s Progressive Party (PPP) simultaneously picketed the three Guyana Elections Commissions (GECOMs) in Berbice as part of its countrywide protest of GECOM.In Region Five, (Mahaica-Berbice) the exercise was held in front of GECOM’s Fort Wellington office where scores of persons held placards and chanted slogans accusing GECOM of not acting in accordance with the ruling of the Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ).The party’s regional supervisor, Faisal Jaffer Ali, explained that they were there to ensure that democracy prevails. He made mention of the dictatorship tendency of the coalition Government, which he said is stifling democracy.“What we are seeing in Guyana is an attempt [by] this illegal caretaker Administration which is led by David Granger, who seems not to understand or to play ‘hard-ears’; the guy is definitely shameless. He is barefaced not to want to adhere to the constitutional provisions in our country; not to want to respect the Judiciary of our country and the Caribbean because, in addition to what the Constitution says, the CCJ ruled that elections must be held in accordance with the Constitution, and that is three months. So, elections should be by the 17. September,” Jafarrly emphasised.Meanwhile, in Region Six (East Berbice-Corentyne) the party’s supervisor, Zaman Hussain, explained that party supporters are dissatisfied with the steps taken by GECOM. He said these are contradictory to the CCJ’s ruling and referred to the House-to-House Registration which commenced almost a week ago, saying it is an illegal act.More than a hundred and fifty party supporters protested outside of GECOM’s office on Princess Elizabeth Road in New Amsterdam and almost a similar number did the same at GECOM’s Corriverton office.Region Six’s Chairman, David Aragon, who was also on the picket line, told reporters that apart from the GECOM issues, the party wants to send a strong message.Meanwhile, similar protests were also held in other areas of the country including Mabaruma and Port Kaituma, Region One (Barima-Waini); Anna Regina, Region Two (Pomeroon-Supenaam), Region Three (Essequibo Islands-West Demerara); Region Five (Mahaica-Berbice); Bartica, Region Seven (Cuyuni-Mazaruni); Mahdia, Region Eight (Potaro-Siparuni); Lethem, Region Nine (Upper Takutu-Upper Essequibo) and Region 10 (Upper Demerara-Berbice).Meanwhile, last Friday hundreds of People’s Progressive Party supporters gathered outside of the Guyana Elections Commission’s headquarters in Kingston after the body decided to proceed with the prolonged registration.Opposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo was baffled about the legal basis on which GECOM’s CEO advanced with the exercise. Jagdeo added that from the Opposition’s perspective, Lowenfield acted in a rogue manner since he did not formally inform the PPP about the confirmed start of new House-to-House Registration.Earlier this week, an interim conservatory order to block GECOM from continuing its House-to-House Registration was not granted as Chief Justice (CJ) Roxanne George required more evidence as to the unconstitutionality of the exercise. The affidavits on this matter are to be submitted on Monday and the court will resume the hearing on August 2, 2019. read more

11 2. Hector Bellerin (right back) – Bellerin has been one of Arsenal’s most consistent performers over the past two seasons and at only 21 will continue to improve. Arsene Wenger may look for further competition to the Spaniard over the summer, though, with Torino’s Bruno Peres linked. 11 11 11 11 3. Shkodran Mustafi (centre back) – It was recently confirmed that Per Mertesacker will spend the next five months on the sidelines having undergone knee surgery. In the wake of the German’s injury, Arsene Wenger has reportedly opened talks with Valencia’s Mustafi. It’s stated the Gunners could sign him for an initial fee of £25.3m with a further £8.4m in add-ons. 4. Laurent Koscielny (centre back) – Koscielny has settled to life at the Emirates well, becoming Wenger’s first choice in the heart of his defence. His status in the pecking order won’t have changed. 8. Aaron Ramsey (right attack) – Following a fine Euro 2016 campaign with Wales, who reached the semi-finals of the tournament, Arsene Wenger should be looking at finally establishing a role for Ramsey in his side. With so many central midfielders, the Welshman may be preferred in a wide attacking position. 11 5. Nacho Monreal (left back) – Monreal, over the last two seasons, has been superb. Kieran Gibbs faces a battle for playing time next season. The rumours continue to swirl over who Arsene Wenger wants to lure to Arsenal.The Gunners failed to sustain a Premier League title push last term, struggling to keep pace with champions Leicester City.And with Pep Guardiola, Antonio Conte and Jose Mourinho to compete with next season, Wenger will need to strengthen in the summer transfer window.Latest reports claim the French manager is eyeing a new centre back and centre forward – but how could those being linked to the club slot into the side?With this question in mind, talkSPORT has taken a look at a possible XI for the Gunners next season. Check it out by viewing the slideshow above.POSSIBLE DEFENDERS AND FORWARDS TO FIRE ARSENAL TO THE PREMIER LEAGUE TITLE 6. Granit Xhaka (centre midfield) – Having signed for a fee believed to be in the region of £30m, much is expected of the midfielder. Fans were given a glimpse of his ability at the Euro 2016 finals and his Premier League debut is eagerly awaited. Its expected that hell slot straight into a holding midfield role. 7. Santi Cazorla (centre midfield) – Cazorla missed six months of last season through injury, sparking a predictable flurry of casualties for Arsene Wenger. He was sorely missed in midfield and could be one of the first names on the team sheet at the start of next term. 11 11 1. Petr Cech (goalkeeper) – see Arsenal’s possible XI for next season, in full, by clicking the arrow above, right – Unless injury spoils his pre-season, there’s no doubts over who will be Arsenal’s no.1 next season. The former Chelsea stopper was excellent in his debut campaign at the Emirates and will be aiming to clinch the Golden Glove this time around. 11 9. Mesut Ozil (attacking midfield) – Much was said of the assists Ozil recorded last season and the Germany international will be looking to continue his form when the new campaign kicks off. He still has his critics, but hes a firm favourite with his manager and the Arsenal fans. 11 10. Alexis Sanchez (left attack) – Sanchez has so often been the difference for Arsenal, proving a nuisance to rival defences. He was quiet by his own high standards last season and will be looking to hit the ground running come August. 11 11. Alexandre Lacazette (striker) – This is the man Arsenal are reportedly desperate to sign. Lyon want more than the £29m the Gunners have so far offered, and Wenger should surely be looking to push the deal. His attack needs strengthening and after their pre-season win over the MLS All Stars, the Frenchman admitted he wants to add one more experienced forward to his squad. Is that player Lacazette? read more

A young Donegal man who rescued two youths from drowning at Rathmullan Pier is to be honoured for his bravery.A brave but very modest Shaun Haughey.Shaun Haughey, from Drumkeen, is to be presented with an Irish Water Safety Award after being nominated by Donegal County Council.Shaun will be presented with his award on Tuesday November 18th at St. George’s Hall in Dublin Castle by the Environment Minister Alan Kelly. Shaun, 21, dived into the freezing waters of Lough Swilly at Rathmullan Pier on the night of August 24th this year and rescued two youths who had got into serious difficulties with one of them unable to stay afloat in the water.Without any care for his own personal safety Shaun dived in to their rescue and onlookers were stunned by his remarkable bravery, strength and courage as he battled to bring the youths on a boat that arrived on the scene.David Friel of Donegal County Council’s Water Safety Department examined the facts of the incident carrying out a number of interviews before nominating Shaun for the award.Mr. Friel told the Tirconail Tribune that Shaun Haughey’s bravery was not being fully recognised the Seiko ‘Just in Time Award’ was the highest award that could be bestowed on him and it was fully merited. He also said that action of people like Shaun Haughey was a reminder of how dangerous the sea is and that swimmers might stop and reflect before they went into the waters.The incident took place at Rathmullan PierIn the meantime, Shaun who is the son of musician Johnny Haughey and his wife Kathleen (nee Carberry) Drumkeen has also been promoted at his workplace at the Medisize Company on the Kilmacrennan Road in Letterkenny.He has been selected for training as a toolmaker with the company and will be trained at the IT in Sligo.The irony of the rescue is that Shaun Haughey never wanted anyone else to find out what he’d done.However the reluctant hero agreed to talk after being persuaded by his parents that he would be given the recognition he deserved for his bravery. Shaun then related in graphic detail how the youths had jumped off the pier into Lough Swilly. He had been fishing off the pier when the teenagers began to disappear under the water.During the next eight terrifying minutes, the two youths fought for their lives.“Their heads kept going under the water. They were swallowing a lot of water. I’m a strong swimmer and went in to get them out. The currents at the pier are very strong, they were sweeping the two boys away.”But he is insisted he’s not a hero. “I only did what I had to do and I wouldn’t even want anyone to know what I did but people need to know that pier is dangerous.”“I’m a very strong swimmer and even I wouldn’t go in to where those boys were.”His proud father Johnny said: “He saved those two boys, there is no doubt about that. Rathmullan pier is notorious and people have unfortunately drowned there before.HERO WHO RESCUED DROWNING YOUTHS TO BE HONOURED FOR HIS BRAVERY was last modified: November 6th, 2014 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:donegalDrumkeenIrish Water Safety AwardRathmullan Piershaun Haughey read more
