Pep Guardiola happy as Man City repeat ‘Fergie time’ trick against West Ham

first_img Manchester City and David Silva dig deep to break Hart-less West Ham Pep Guardiola Share via Email Share on LinkedIn Topics Manchester City Share on Twitter West Ham United Pep Guardiola praised Manchester City’s increasing ability to win in “Fergie time” after West Ham United were beaten by David Silva’s 83rd-minute strike, to make it three successive matches his side have served up a late, late show in the manner of Manchester United under Sir Alex Ferguson.The victory was a 13th straight league win, to equal the all-time single‑season top-flight record most recently achieved by Arsenal in 2001-02- and Chelsea last term as Guardiola’s side maintained an eight-point lead over United. Premier League news Reuse this content Alex Ferguson Read more Share on WhatsApp Share on Pinterest Share on Messenger Share on Facebook After Huddersfield Town and Southampton were beaten in City’s previous two games thanks to Raheem Sterling’s strikes, the City manager was asked if his side now have their own version of “Fergie time”.Guardiola said: “If we can take something about the Fergie time, it is welcome, a pleasure. I heard about the Fergie time. I was not here in that period but of course you have to have that. What we show in the last games is we never give up. The opponent doesn’t want to play. They just want to defend. I understand. I am not judging but it is difficult. Always they have 10 players behind the ball. Hopefully in the future opponents can want to play. Today I learned a bit like a manager to tackle it different. We don’t normally play with two strikers and two wingers but we did so it is a lesson.”City had fallen behind to Angelo Ogbonna’s header 60 seconds before the break but Nicolás Otamendi equalised on 57 minutes before Silva struck.While City next play United at Old Trafford in Sunday’s 175th Manchester derby, West Ham’s defeat means David Moyes has claimed only one point from his four matches in charge. Yet despite his team being second bottom on 10 points, three adrift of the last safe spot, he is not contemplating relegation. “I always think we will get away. I don’t think we will be in trouble,” Moyes said. “I think we have a good team, good players. I thought the effort and energy of the players will give us a real chance.“I really want the football to be attacking but we are playing against a team that we can hardly get the ball so what are you going to do? There will be a lot of teams will find it a struggle to get the ball off them,” he said.last_img read more

Van with 140m of meth smashes into police car

first_imgSydney: Australian authorities have uncovered a USD140 million stash of amphetamines after an alleged criminal’s run-in with the law saw his drug-filled van crash into an officer’s car outside a police station. Security camera footage released on Tuesday showed a white van ploughing into the front of a vehicle parked outside a suburban Sydney police station before speeding off down the street. Police said the alleged 26-year-old driver was pulled over about an hour later, less than a 10-minute drive away from the accident scene. Also Read – Saudi Crown Prince ‘snubbed’ Pak PM, recalled jet from USThe van was said to be packed with moving boxes containing 237 kilograms of methylamphetamine, an illegal drug commonly known as “ice’, with a total estimated street value of AUS 200 million. Australia has a growing problem with meth, with a government report released last year showing the country has proportionally more users than most nations. The van driver has been charged with large commercial drug supply, negligent driving, and not giving particulars to police. He was due to appear in a Sydney court later on Tuesday. No one was injured in the incident.last_img read more

Chretien ignores lobbyist registrars inquiry on meeting with NS premier

first_imgHALIFAX – Jean Chretien has ignored a letter from Nova Scotia’s lobbyist registrar asking if he lobbied the premier about a port proposal during a recent closed-door session that drew a citizen complaint.The registrar of lobbyists, Hayley Clarke, asked the former prime minister about a March 21 meeting in Halifax with Premier Stephen McNeil and Transport Minister Geoff MacLellan.Chretien is an international adviser to Sydney Harbour Investment Partners, which has been seeking investor support for the Cape Breton container port project. Chretien is not a registered lobbyist in Nova Scotia, and both McNeil and MacLellan denied he lobbied them or discussed the port project.Following a complaint from a retired union activist, Clarke sent Chretien a letter providing information about the province’s lobbying act, and asked for a response by the end of April.“We ask they (Chretien) review their activities to ensure compliance and provide a response advising as to the results of their review within 30 days,” says a March 29 letter to the complainant, John McCracken.No response came, Clarke’s spokesperson told The Canadian Press.“There has been no response to the Nova Scotia’s Registrar of Lobbyists inquiry of the Hon. Jean Chretien following a complaint received from a member of the public,” Marla MacInnis said.The Canadian Press sent written requests to Chretien and to an associate who often arranges media interviews but received no response.Duff Conacher, the co-founder of Democracy Watch, said Chretien needs to clear up the issue before he resumes conversations with politicians in the province.“He should be showing and documenting that he has not crossed the line that the law establishes that requires registration. If he’s not going to show the registrar, then the police should give him a call,” said Conacher.McCracken said Chretien’s lack of response demonstrates that Nova Scotia’s lobbying law is “toothless.”He said his only option now would be to take his complaint about Chretien to the police, a move that he’s contemplating.“It confirms everything I predicted at the time when I got my response from the registrar, which was that they (the registrar) were going to contact him and he (Chretien) was going to laugh in their face,” he said in an interview.The day before the meeting, Chretien had attended a conference in Sydney and told reporters about his role as an international adviser to Sydney Harbour Investment Partners.When a Cape Breton Post reporter asked Chretien how he’d market the Sydney container port to the premier, the former prime minister said he felt the premier would be in favour of a provincewide approach to container ports.“He (McNeil) said, ‘He’s for the development and he wants development in Nova Scotia,’ and he’s the premier of all Nova Scotia. And there always competition between one city and another. But all the cities in Nova Scotia are in Nova Scotia, but he is the premier of Nova Scotia.”The provincial Liberal government has been cautious about the Sydney proposal, as a 2016 study prepared for the province and the federal Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency recommended against public money for a terminal that would compete against the Halifax port.As the interview continued, Chretien was asked if the province should invest money in the container port proposal, and he replied: “I hope so.”When asked about another project along the Strait of Canso trying to develop a port, Chretien replied, “So what? I’m working for Sydney. I’m not working for them.”Clarke has previously made clear there was little she could do to probe what had occurred.“The role of the Registrar of Lobbyists is to administer the Registry of Lobbyists. The Registrar is not an enforcement agent,” MacInnis confirmed in an email to The Canadian Press.A number of other provincial jurisdictions, including Ontario, and the federal commissioner of lobbying can probe citizen complaints and recommend police investigations.Conacher said in an interview that he’d encourage McCracken to bring the media reports regarding Chretien’s actions to the attention of police.“He can say ‘There’s this story, and there’s this law, can you please check into what the (former) prime minister’s been doing,’” he said.Conacher said in most jurisdictions, commissioners do an investigation and bring the matter to police if it’s considered a crime was potentially committed. He said Nova Scotia should set up a similar system.“They often do the front-line investigation that police don’t have time to do,” he said.Nova Scotia legislation provides for a fine of not more than $25,000 for anyone who lobbies without registering first.McCracken said he would have been content had Chretien registered as a lobbyist after his complaint, and agreed to follow the rules of lobbyists going forward.These include requirements such as documenting if he has lobbied provincial politicians or government agencies on behalf of his client.Nova Scotia’s lobbyist registration law says lobbying includes communicating with a public servant “in an attempt to influence” the awarding of a contribution on behalf of government.One of the definitions of a lobbyist under the Nova Scotia law is “an individual paid to lobby on behalf of a client.”A person who does this is required to disclose their name, address and the name of the company they’re lobbying on behalf of, and the “subject matter” of their lobbying and who they’ve contacted.last_img read more

Cadillac brand will return to Michigan from New York

first_imgDETROIT – General Motors is moving its Cadillac brand headquarters from New York back to Michigan, four years after heading to the big city to become more cosmopolitan.The move to the Detroit suburb of Warren, Michigan, across the street from GM’s giant technical centre, will take place in April.The company said Wednesday the brand’s workers need to be closer to engineers and designers because Cadillac plans to launch a new vehicle every six months for the next three years.The move comes five months after GM ousted Cadillac brand chief Johan de Nysschen, who thought a New York headquarters would give the brand more sophistication when Cadillac moved to New York in 2014. Cadillac sales fell 8 per cent last year but were up 5.4 per cent during the first half of 2018. GM replaced de Nysschen with Steve Carlisle, who ran GM’s Canadian operations.Spokesman Patrick Morrissey said GM learned a lot about the brand in New York, but circumstances changed since 2014 with Cadillac being part of GM’s technology and electric vehicle push. About 70 per cent of the workers in New York were recruited from the city, bringing GM new talent, Morrissey said.All 110 workers at the headquarters in the Manhattan’s SoHo district will be offered jobs in Michigan.De Nysschen was hired away from Nissan’s Infiniti luxury brand with much promise and named president of Cadillac in August of 2014. A few months later he moved the brand’s headquarters from Detroit to New York.New York’s economic development agency approved a $1 million grant to Cadillac to help with the $12.7 million renovation of the Manhattan headquarters.Morrissey said GM did not draw down any of the incentive funds “but we are thankful and appreciative of the support we got from New York.”Jason Conwall, spokesman for Empire State Development, New York state’s main economic development office, said the state is disappointed in the move, but understands “this is a business decision being made by GM to co-locate the Cadillac headquarters with the rest of its corporate headquarters.”He confirmed that the state did not disperse any of the $1 million performance grant to GM.last_img read more
