Tottenham striker won’t replace Man United-bound Falcao at Monaco

first_img1 Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino admits he will do everything to keep Roberto Soldado even though Monaco are believed to be lining up a move to sign him as a replacement for Radamel Falcao.Soldado has been linked with a move away from White Hart Lane after failing to produce his best form for the north London club.The Spanish forward only arrived at Tottenham last summer in a £26m move from Valencia but has only scored six Premier League goals.With Falcao making a shock move to Manchester United on transfer deadline day, Monaco are now doing everything they can to bring in a replacement before the window closes and could step up their move to sign Soldado.Despite Emmanuel Adebayor being the first choice striker, Pochettino admits he still sees a big future for Soldado at the club.He said: “We keep him. He was only missing against Liverpool due to injury.” Tottenham striker Roberto Soldado last_img read more

I kept shouting “John, John, what are you at?” But he kpet hitting me and he put me on the ground.“Initially I got blows on the hand and I looked to defend myself and he caught me on the head and he split me. He then went for my leg. He said to me “You bastard, you know what this is for.”Mr McLaughlin said he managed to climb back into his car and blew the horn and McGettigan fled the scene.He managed to drive himself a number of miles away to get medical treatment for his wounds at the local NowDoc clinic in Carndonagh.Barrister for McGettigan, Peter Nolan, put it to Mr McLaughlin that he had barred his client because of the slagging in the bar.He put it to him that he had been caught masturbating in front of barmaid Denise McDaid whom he had previously been in a relationship.Mr McLaughlin admitted he had been masturbating in front of Ms McDaid.And Mr Nolan put it to Mr McLaughlin that the word spread around the bar among regulars that he was caught masturbating in front of Ms McDaid.“I put it to you that Mr McGettigan and everyone in the bar was slagging you continuously – calling you things like Tommy Tank, Tommy Tugger and Pat Mustard – a character from TV show Fr Ted.“You did not like it and you set out to get him and shut him up. You didn’t like McGettigan – didn’t have time for him. He was embarrassing you and you decided to get him back.”Former barmaid Denise McDaid told the court that her former boy friend Mr McLaughlin initially claimed that he had been “jumped” by four men but later admitted it was McGettigan.She also told the court that she had witnessed Mr McLaughlin masturbating in the cellar of the bar.“He wen tout to the cellar and the door was ajar. His penis was in hand and he was masturbating. I slammed the door and I told him to cop himself on. It happened three times. I closed door and walked away,” she revealed.She also revealed that Mr McLaughlin texted texted on his phone in the bar.The text read “If you stand there and look pretty I will give you twenty euro while I masturbate.”Ms McDaid said she told fellow barman Jason McElhinney and he told other regulars who all began to call Mr McLaughlin names for several months.“They would call him all sorts of names and would ask ‘are you away in there for a w*** Darren,” she added.The accused man, a 32 year old fisherman from Gemstone Park, Gleneely denied having any involvement in the assault of Mr McLaughlin.He admitted that he had been barred from the premises but said he had been barred before and had returned to the premises.The case, before Judge Martin Nolan, continues tomorrow.Pub owner claims he was attacked with baseball bat after barring regular customer was last modified: February 3rd, 2017 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)last_img read more

first_imgWhy Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… At Google, we run anywhere from 50 to 200 experiments at any given time on our websites all over the world. Right now, we are running a small test of a new Google News homepage design. More information about how Google runs experiments can be found [here].Google last redesigned its news page last May, adding more visual content to the layout. This time around, we expect to see more in the way of real-time content, including features such as the trending topics seen here.If you keep a close watch, it is possible you will see other new features that Google is testing, but as the company’s blog post points out, often these features will show up and go completely unnoticed. In Hobot’s case, the trending topics showed up for a brief period before disappearing again.We asked about the specifics of the new feature, but Gaither said that statement included above is all the company is saying about it at this time.
