Quamie Wants LFA to Host Periodic Regional Training

first_imgDeputy Minister Andy Quamie suggests LFA should organize periodic training for administratorsDeputy Sports Minister Andy Quamie has called on the Liberia Football Association (LFA) to host periodic training ahead of every football season.Quamie, a CAF and FIFA match commissioner and inspector, was speaking in Buchanan during the first phase of two-day regional training from 25-27 January.He lectured on football administration to participants from the sub-associations of Margibi, River Cess and hosts Grand Bassa.Quamie said he was grateful to the executive committee for the training and his preferment as a facilitator in the training.“I am not sure if this is the first [the LFA organized such training], but most of the people who attended are their first time attending administrative courses.“The last time I ever attended an administrative course in Liberia was Futuro II, which was organized by FIFA in 1997/1998 and this is the first Liberian-organized training that I have attended,” he said.Quamie praised the LFA for decentralizing the training and said the periodic course will go a long way in improving football.“Every year we can organize one in Gbarnga, Ganta and other places so that administrators will have the opportunity of knowing their role.“Most of the people, who attended this training didn’t know their roles. We started with the major lesson of a president interfering with the work of coaches. So we explained the functions of a president, secretary-general, coach and team manager.“When everybody knows his/her role, the president will not leave the VIP stands to go to the coach to interfere with his job because when you interfere, how can you say you want to fire him?” Quamie asked.LFA director of referees, Ebenezer Stanley Konah and referee fitness instructor, Jay Exodus Flanjay, who are former FIFA-badged referees, former soccer head coach Kaetu Smith, and medic Boakai Kamara, facilitated the sessions on refereeing, coaching, and sports medicine.The sub-associations of Grand Gedeh, Maryland and hosts River Gee also gathered in Fish Town for similar training.Former LFA referee committee chairman, Mason Chumud Goe and referee fitness instructor, Joseph Momolu Hoff, who are also former FIFA-badged referees; LFA director of women’s football Francis Tamba, who serves as CAF education officer; Emmanuel Bafford and Lydia Grant Boi, served as facilitators.“The participants were enthusiastic. They were hungry for knowledge. I have been conducting training but I have not seen such enthusiasm from the participants,” said Tamba.“They were willing to even sit on blocks or on the bare ground just to obtain knowledge. My only regret is that the leadership of the county wasn’t receptive to us but the training went well in Fish Town,” he added.Each sub-association presented five medics, 10 administrators, 15 referees, and 25 coaches, bringing the participants to 330.The second phase runs run from February 1-3 in Tubmanburg and will include the sub-associations of Gbarpolu, Grand Cape Mount and Bomi counties.Facilitators will include former FIFA-badged referees Alex Nagbo and Sylvester Johnson; coaches Francis Tamba and Lucretius Togba; Dr. Torsu Jallabah and former LFA vice president for administration, Pennoh Bestman.Each sub-association will present five medics, 10 administrators, 15 referees, and 25 coaches, bringing the participants to 165.Sinoe, Grand Kru and Montserrado sub-associations should have been part of the previous training but they will form part of the final training along with Nimba, Lofa and Bong sub-associations.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Proposed L.A. city gang tax premature

first_imgIn the philosophy of the city’s elected officials, there’s never a bad time to come up with a new way to squeeze money out of Angelenos. There are rate hikes and various fee increases to pay for the job of a barely maintained city. And when the city’s leaders are feeling especially confident, there’s the parcel-tax hike. The Los Angeles City Council must be feeling pretty confident at the moment about getting voters’ support, since it so generously and recently agreed to give council members another term of office – though perhaps induced by a little misdirection from the council’s spinmeisters. And that’s not a thing to waste. The collective whim of the voters can change faster than you can say “macaca.” Enter the gang-tax proposal, a $40-a-year (on average) charge on property owners to raise $30 million a year to pay for gang-suppression efforts. If this measure introduced by City Councilwoman Janice Hahn were a surefire solution to the violence and toll illegal gangs have on the city, it would be the bargain of the century. Who wouldn’t pay $40 to wipe the street gangs out of existence and see the young men and women chewed up by gangs go on to fruitful lives and careers? But this isn’t a surefire thing; the council doesn’t even have a plan for the money, just a conviction that they will need it. But, in fact, the city doesn’t even know what gang resources it already has, as the city controller has only just begun an audit of existing gang-prevention programs, as encouraged by the council members themselves. The council’s Rules and Elections Committee last week directed the city attorney to draft the measure, which would appear on the February presidential primary ballot. If approved, the money it generates would go to gang prevention, intervention, job training and after-school programs. The council clearly wants to milk all the voter goodwill it can by passing a tax on the cause of the moment. But it’s way too soon to start raising money the city may not even need. There’s a very good chance that in the millions of dollars the city already spends on gang-prevention programs it doesn’t know it has, that one or two or 30 of them are being wasted. There is no good reason to rush this parcel tax to the ballot other than to satisfy City Hall’s revenue lust to waste on pet projects and aid to political supporters. The City Council ought to put aside this parcel tax until City Controller Laura Chick’s audit of gang-intervention programs is complete and there’s a concrete plan of action for the revenues. It just makes sense to think this one through before calling on voters to open their wallets yet again. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Wenger’s best and worst young signings at Arsenal – Abraham to follow next?

first_img 16 16 16 16 Carlos Vela – Vela was 16 when he arrived at Arsenal in 2005, but after various loans in England and Spain he was eventually sold in 2012, having been unable to break into the first team. He scored 11 goals in 62 games for the club. If he can’t get first team football at Chelsea next season then Tammy Abraham is ready to leave, with Arsenal said to be keen.The 19-year-old has come through the youth team at Stamford Bridge and has top scored for Championship club Bristol City this season with 23 goals. Abraham, who won the FA Youth Cup and UEFA Youth League twice with Chelsea, is City’s Player and Young Player of the season.Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has a history of signing promising young players and while some of those moves do not work out, others have been hugely successful. Here, talkSPORT.com looks at some of them beginning with the long serving Theo Walcott. Jermaine Pennant – Arsenal paid £2m for Notts County’s talented 15-year-old in 1999 and he was the youngest Arsenal debutant at the age of 16 years and 319 days when he played against Boro later in the year (Fabregas later broke the record). Pennant scored a hat-trick on his full Premier League debut at the age of 20, but played just 26 times before leaving in 2005. He wasted his talent and he played for a whole host of clubs in various leagues in both England, India and Spain. Rio Miyaichi – Arsene Wenger said he was delighted 18-year-old Miyaichi joined the club from Chukyodai Chukyo High School in Japan. “He trialled with us in the summer and has raw ability which has attracted many clubs around the world,” he revealed in 2011 before sending him on loan to Feyenoord to gain experience. He didn’t make any impact at Arsenal and was released in 2015 and now plays at St Pauli. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain – Chamberlain was 17 when Arsenal paid Southampton £15m for him in 2011. He is an exciting player to watch and popular with the fans, but the 23-year-old midfielder hasn’t been able to nail down a regular starting place. This has led to talk of a summer move in 2017 with Liverpool said to be frontrunners for his signature. Denilson – Denilson was captain of the Brazil U19s and had played 12 times for Sao Paulo when he joined as an 18-year-old in 2006. Arsenal paid £3.4m and he had a couple of seasons of regular games, including 51 appearances in the 2008/09 season, but was eventually released in 2013 once he lost his first team place. He re-joined Sao Paulo and is now on loan at Cruzeiro from Al-Wahda. 16 16 16 16 16 16 16 16 Aaron Ramsey – Ramsey was 17 when Wenger plucked him from Cardiff and he has become a key first team player in the years since. Now 26, the midfielder is a full Wales international and also scored the winner in the 2014 FA Cup final, their first major piece of silverware since 2005. Nicklas Bendtner – Bendtner joined the youth ranks at Arsenal in 2004 and he made his debut a year later, but the forward was the source of ridicule from both his own fans and many rivals. He showed a lot of promise early on and spent time on loan at Birmingham, Sunderland and Juventus. He was a free transfer for Wolfsburg in 2014 and now plays for Rosenborg. Gael Clichy – A promising teenager at Caen, Clichy signed for Arsenal at the age of 18 in 2003 and eventually became the club’s first choice left-back once Ashley Cole left. He was the youngest player to win a Premier League winners medal in 2004 and later sealed a £7m move to Man City in 2011. Nicolas Anelka – Arsenal paid PSG £500,000 for 17-year-old striker Anelka in 1997 and his impact was immediate. He won a Premier League and FA Cup double in 1998, scoring in the final, won the PFA Young Player of the Year in 1999 and then sealed a £22.5m move to Real Madrid by the time he was 20. 16 Patrick Vieira – He was unknown when he arrived at the age of 20, but within months everyone knew who the young Frenchman was. He captained the club, won the double twice, the World Cup with France and was soon coveted by the world’s leading clubs. He moved to Juventus for just under £14m in 2005. 16 16 Kolo Toure – Wenger signed 20-year-old Toure from Asec Mimosas in 2002 and had high hopes for his long-term future at Arsenal. He was part of the ‘Invincibles’ in 2004 and won two FA Cups before moving to Man City for £14m in 2009. Have you heard about his incredibly funny Arsenal trial? Listen here. 16 Robin van Persie – Arsenal signed him for £2.75m in 2004 and the striker scored 132 goals in 278 games in his eight years at the club. His incredible left foot made a lot of Gooners happy and when he was fit he was among the best players in the world. In his last season at the club before joining Man United in 2012 he scored 37 goals in all competitions, won the Premier League Golden Boot and was honoured with the PFA and FWA Footballer of the Year awards. Cesc Fabregas – Fabregas is probably the best of Wenger’s young signings, having not taken long to cement his place in the first team following his arrival from Barcelona as a 16-year-old in 2003. He won the FA Cup in 2005 and his class eventually led to him becoming club captain and then a £35m transfer to Barca in 2011 before returning to the Premier League three years later with Chelsea. He has just won his second Premier League title. Abou Diaby – Diaby sealed a move to Arsenal from Auxerre where the Gunners beat Chelsea to the teenage midfielder. However, his time was plagued by injuries and he played 124 times in nine years and joined Marseille in 2015. Matthew Upson – When Upson joined Arsenal at the age of 18 in 1997, the club had Tony Adams, Martin Keown then bought Sol Campbell and Kolo Toure, and so he found it difficult to break into the first team. Wenger said he was impatient to play, but always knew he would have a good career when he left in 2003. “I didn’t stop him because I knew he had qualities to play in the Premier League,” Wenger said about Upson’s decision to leave. Theo Walcott – Tammy Abraham is ready to leave Chelsea if first team football at Stamford Bridge is unlikely and Arsenal are said to be keen. Arsene Wenger has a history of signing promising young players and while some of those moves do not work out, others have been hugely successful. Here, talkSPORT.com looks at some of them. Walcott was 16 when he arrived from Southampton in 2006 and is Arsenal’s longest serving player. In that time he has become an established England international, hit 100 goals for the club and won two FA Cups, scoring the opening goal in the 2015 edition. last_img read more
