Royalty fees would be paid in lieu.Ms Revington outlined to Judge Moran that demands for payment were made in January and February of this year before the licence was revoked.In July, a civil equity bill was furnished to the owners of Bourkes seeking further demand for the monies and Ms Revington added that in October, notice was also served that proceedings were being initiated.Andrew Darcy, for the respondents, told the court that he would need until the end of next January to collate the defence. He said that his client had a defence to the amount of money alleged to be owed.Ms Revington claimed that music was still being played at the venue despite the absence of a licence and said that she was instructed to immediately seek the injunction from them continuing to do so.Judge Moran said that he would grant Mr Darcy time to gather the defence but said that the matter would be heard in full on the next date. The motion was adjourned until January 28 next.

Suarez wins writers’ award

first_imgLiverpool forward Luis Suarez has been voted the 2014 Footballer of the Year by the Football Writers’ Association. The Uruguay international, 27, topped the poll of 300-plus journalists ahead of Anfield team-mate Steven Gerrard, the England captain. Suarez’s 30 goals have helped propel Brendan Rodgers’ men towards a first championship in 24 years. The Liverpool forward will be honoured with the prestigious FWA accolade, which has been running since 1948, at a gala dinner at the Lancaster London Hotel on May 15. Suarez was last week also named Player of the Year by the Professional Footballers’ Association. FWA chairman Andy Dunn, of the Sunday Mirror, said: “Those members who have been fortunate enough to be working at a match involving Luis Suarez have witnessed an astonishing talent first-hand. “Tireless endeavour allied to extraordinary imagination makes an irresistible combination. Add ingenious, impudent finishing and you have a footballer who truly quickens the pulse. “Luis is a remarkably gifted addition to the long and distinguished list of winners of our award.” In a poll that saw 10 different players collect votes, Suarez collected 52 per cent of the overall vote, ahead of his club captain, Gerrard, with Manchester City midfielder Yaya Toure in third place. Suarez received two votes in last year’s FWA poll, which was won by then Tottenham winger Gareth Bale, and has come full circle since serving a 10-match ban for biting Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

As long as Dodgers keep playing, Kenley Jansen can try to forget about upcoming surgery

first_img“I think this playoff setting is a nice distraction and he’s doing everything he can to focus on this moment,” Roberts said.LINEUP CHESSWith left-hander Wade Miley starting for the Brewers – and likely to stick around for more than one batter this time – Roberts tried another starting lineup combination. He started David Freese at leadoff, only the fourth time in Freese’s big-league career he has batted in that spot (once with the Cardinals in 2010, twice with the Pirates in 2016).Freese led off the game with a home run, popped out in a second at-bat against Miley then drove in the Dodgers’ second run with a double off him in the fifth inning.“It’s more of still loving David’s at-bat quality and liking him against Miley and just being able to see him a couple of times, depending on how the game goes,” Roberts said. “And I think that, again, it’s a game that you just don’t know how it’s going to unfold. So with the way that we structured the lineup and the guys we have on the bench, it just kind of gives us a little bit of flexibility on how we want to use the guys on the bench.”While Brewers manager Craig Counsell has tried to maneuver the Dodgers into loading their lineup with right-handed hitters against Miley (and then switching to a right-handed reliever), Roberts has not taken the bait. Cody Bellinger and Max Muncy were in the starting lineups for Games 5 and 6 against Miley as was Yasiel Puig, a right-handed hitter who is much more dangerous against right-handed pitching.“This guy’s approach to pitching and specifically the cutter to right-handed hitters has changed. He’s not conventional to what he used to be,” Roberts said. “I don’t think those characteristics lend itself to just running out a bunch of righties. Now when you layer on what they could potentially do (with pitching changes), it makes even more sense.”ALSOWith his start in Game 6, Puig has appeared in all 52 postseason games the Dodgers have played since he came to the big leagues in 2013. The 52 postseason games are the most for any player in Dodgers history (surpassing Andre Ethier’s 51).Related Articles How Dodgers pitcher Ross Stripling topped the baseball podcast empire “Right now, I feel like I’m so, you know, so numb to it now. It’s like I keep telling myself it’s maybe one more week of taking this medication.”Jansen was placed on beta-blockers after the episode in August, which involved having his heart shocked back into rhythm at a Colorado hospital. He tried pitching with them and gave up four home runs in his first three games, taking two losses and blowing a save, before he decided to stop taking them.Jansen has been back on a reduced dosage of the medication for more than a month now. But he clearly doesn’t like it.“It’s not easy, definitely not, because when you take it sometimes you feel sleepy,” he said before Game 6. “But you’ve just got to go through it. This playoff adrenaline definitely helped a little to get myself into it, too. … I try to not think too much about it and keep telling myself this is where we are right now and we’ve been talking about this the whole year, to try to win a championship, and here we are a game away.”At the start of the playoffs, Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said it was “unlikely” he would lean on Jansen this postseason as heavily as he did last fall when Jansen appeared in 13 of the Dodgers’ 15 postseason games, pitching more than one inning five times. Circumstances have kept Jansen to five appearances in the first nine playoff games and only one extended outing (two innings in the 13-inning Game 4). Cody Bellinger homer gives Dodgers their first walkoff win of season Dodgers’ Max Muncy trying to work his way out of slow start Fire danger is on Dave Roberts’ mind as Dodgers head to San Francisco MILWAUKEE — Each Dodgers victory postpones it a little longer. But it is never far from his mind.Dodgers closer Kenley Jansen will undergo a surgical procedure on his heart two weeks after his season ends – whenever that is. It will be the second time in six years. Following the 2012 season, Jansen had an ablation surgery during which heart tissue was cauterized to prevent it from sending the signals that caused atrial fibrillation episodes.The a-fib returned in August and doctors will once again thread a catheter up to Jansen’s heart and do what they deem necessary to prevent further episodes.“You know, that’s a tough thing to deal with this year, especially when I came back,” Jansen said of his return after the a-fib episode in August. “I feel like I have two different personalities in me right now – one who wants to do the surgery already and then another one who wants to go out there and compete to help your team.

Raptors exec Ujiri says will stay in Toronto

first_imgUjiri has two years left on his contract with the Raptors, but ESPN reported this month that the Washington Wizards were pursuing him with an offer that included ownership equity in the club.Ujiri became the Raptors’ general manager in 2013 and team president three years later.One of Ujiri’s most pressing tasks now will be to retain the services of NBA Finals Most Valuable Player Kawhi Leonard, who is expected to opt out of the final year of his contract and become a free agent.Ujiri said he is confident that Leonard will stay, even if he checks out the free agent market first. Leonard arrived via a trade from San Antonio last July after a season of growing discontent with the Spurs.“We’ll wait,” Ujiri said. “He’s our player and he’s a superstar on our team and we’ll wait on that.”He said he thought the team had “built a trust” with Leonard.“We’re really approaching it like we want to bring everybody back on this team,” Ujiri said. “That’s a priority for us.”Ujiri had little to say about the investigation by California authorities of a confrontation between Ujiri and a sheriff’s deputy after the Raptors’ championship-clinching game six victory over the Golden State Warriors.As Ujiri approached the court after the victory he was stopped by the deputy for not displaying court-access credentials, according to the Alameda County Sheriff’s Office.The deputy says Ujiri struck him, injuring his jaw.“I am confident about who I am as a person, my character and as a human being,” Ujiri said. “For now, I’ll just respect their process there and wait for the next steps.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Toronto Raptors president Masai Ujiri and family wave to the crowd during the NBA champion Raptors’ victory parade on June 17, 2019 © GETTY IMAGES NORTH AMERICA/AFP/File / Vaughn RidleyLOS ANGELES, United States, Jun 26 – Toronto Raptors president Masai Ujiri says he’ll stay with the club to vie for another NBA championship, and he believes star forward Kawhi Leonard will, too.“I love it here,” Nigerian-born Ujiri said at a season-ending press conference in Toronto on Tuesday. “My family loves it here.

Arsenal closing in on Wenger’s worst ever season

first_imgArsenal The damning stats behind Arsenal’s worst-ever season under Wenger Harry Sherlock 07:00 8/3/2018 FacebookTwitterRedditcopy Comments(3) Arsene Wenger Arsenal Getty Images Arsenal Arsène Wenger Premier League Stats The Gunners have endured a truly horrendous run of form, and the numbers prove just how bad this campaign has been at the Emirates Stadium It’s all falling apart for Arsenal and Arsene Wenger.Under the Frenchman, the Gunners have endured unfathomable highs and degrading lows, but they have never been quite this terrible at this part of the season.Mathematically out of the Premier League title race, the Gunners are sixth, and have lost four times in a row, leaving them a mammoth 33 points behind Manchester City. Article continues below Editors’ Picks Williams case shows Solskjaer isn’t holding Man Utd’s youngsters back – he’s protecting them Goalkeeper crisis! Walker to the rescue but City sweating on Ederson injury ahead of Liverpool clash Out of his depth! Emery on borrowed time after another abysmal Arsenal display Diving, tactical fouls & the emerging war of words between Guardiola & Klopp The ‘Wenger Out’ brigade is more vocal than ever, and it is perhaps unsurprising that the stats prove that the Gunners are enduring their worst ever season under the Frenchman.STANDINGSArsene Wenger ArsenalAfter 29 games of the Premier League season, Arsenal have won 13, drawn six and lost 10 of their encounters. They have 45 points, and a goal difference of 11.Only twice in Premier League history have Arsenal been in a worse position at this stage of the season – in 1992-93, when they had just 39 points, and in 1994-95, when they had 37. In those seasons, Arsenal finished 10th and 12th.Since then, they have never finished below fifth, though they did manage to finish fourth in 2005-06 with only two more points than they currently have after 29 games.It is in stark contrast to the glory days under Wenger. In 2002-03 – the famous Invincible season – Arsenal had 73 points after 29 games, only five fewer than Pep Guardiola’s magnificent Manchester City have now.Indeed, Arsenal’s current points total of 45, coupled with City’s tally of 78, marks the farthest behind the leaders the Gunners have ever been at this stage of the season.Amazingly, they are currently closer to rock-bottom West Brom (a difference of 25 points) than the champions-elect.DEFEATSMesut Ozil Kevin de Bruyne Arsenal Manchester CityArsenal have already lost 10 games this season, just one defeat shy of the most games they have ever lost in a whole season under Wenger’s management, in the 2005-06 season.The Gunners would need to lose seven more times to equal their worst ever Premier League season for defeats, which came in the woeful 1994-95 campaign, while they lost 16 times in 1992-93.Wenger’s men have also lost eight times on the road, with their defeat to Brighton & Hove Albion at the weekend coming off the back of previous losses to Tottenham, Swansea City, Bournemouth, Manchester City, Watford, Liverpool and Stoke City.They have only suffered more defeats away from home under Wenger once, in 2005-06, when they lost nine times. The 1992-93 season featured nine away losses, while 1994-95 saw 11.GOALS CONCEDEDPierre Emerick Aubameyang ArsenalArsenal have never conceded as many goals as they have at this stage of the season before.While the Gunners’ defence used to be miserly and proud of it, this time around they have conceded 41 goals in 29 games, two more than they had let in at this stage of the 2011-12 season. They would eventually finish third in that campaign.This defence has history that would suggest it is in need of reinforcement, however, with the Gunners conceding 36 goals in 29 games in the 2016-17 season, when they finished fifth.MISTAKESPetr Cech Arsenal BrightonArsenal’s players may deserve just as much flak as their under-fire manager, as they have made their fair share of errors this season.Indeed, the Gunners have made more errors leading to shots than any other team, with a staggering number of 27 – five more than Southampton and eight more than Huddersfield Town. Burnley rank lowest in the list, with just five errors.It is perhaps unsurprising, therefore, that the Gunners have also made more errors leading to goals than any other club in the Premier League, with 13, four more than Southampton.Petr Cech was hailed as a truly excellent signing when he arrived from Chelsea, but he too has been sucked into the mire in north London, and it is perhaps time for Wenger to drop the Czech goalkeeper.He has made six errors leading to goals this season and has also made seven errors leading to shots – both place him at the top of the respective stat lists.Granit Xhaka, meanwhile, has made four errors leading to shots and three leading to goals. No other team has such a bumbling duo. Hector Bellerin, too, has made four mistakes leading to shots.Amazingly, Cech has been waiting since December’s 1-0 success over Newcastle United to record his 200th clean sheet, and it shows no signs of coming any time soon.last_img read more

Liverpool ignored Ronaldo & Pique advice

Emery on borrowed time after another abysmal Arsenal display Diving, tactical fouls & the emerging war of words between Guardiola & Klopp They are now in direct competition as rivals on opposing sides of the Clasico divide at Real Madrid and Barcelona, but could have been gearing up for an outing for Liverpool at Old Trafford on Saturday if things had turned out differently.Miller told ESPN FC : “I looked at Gerard Pique and I tried to get him.”The Spanish delegation he was with at a youth tournament, I think it was his grandfather who was the delegate for the Spanish federation. Well he wouldn’t give me permission because I think Man United were already in at that point.”I brought Cristiano Ronaldo [suggested to Liverpool as a signing]. That’s water under the bridge, I recommended him and saw him at a youth tournament.”Ronaldo and Pique are not the only decorated Champions League winners that Liverpool missed out on either, with several other big names having slipped the net.Among those the Reds were interested in but failed to land were John Terry and Petr Cech, the latter of whom could have been acquired before he burst onto the scene and Sparta Prague and eventually earned himself a switch to Stamford Bridge.Petr Cech; John Terry Chelsea“I tried to get John Terry to come,” Miller admitted, with Chelsea having pipped Liverpool to fourth spot in 2003.”It went to the final day and they beat us at Stamford Bridge. After the game I went to speak to John Terry to try and get him.”How I did it was, I went up to him in the corridor and asked him for his autograph. He said yes. As he was signing it I said: ‘Could you put your mobile phone number? Gerard Houllier would like to talk to you.'”He put his agent’s number and said to talk to him. Gerard Houllier spoke to his agent on the bus. I think he just used us to get more money out of Chelsea.”I also had Petr Cech, but at that moment in time we were trying to sign Chris Kirkland. I went to a game to watch Milan Baros and Petr Cech was making his debut.”I then went to Argentina, I think it was in 2001, the Under-20 World Cup. You could have got him for a song. He was with Chmel Blsany and then he moved to Sparta Prague and then he moved to France [signing for Rennes].” Subscribe to Goal’s Liverpool Correspondent Neil Jones’ weekly email bringing you the best Liverpool FC writing from around the weblast_img read more
