New Captain of BiH National Football Team Edin Džeko: Great Honor and Responsibility

first_imgAfter former captain of the BiH national football team Emir Spahić retired from the team, coach Safet Sušić decided to pass the captain armband to the first forward of the team Edin Džeko. Sušić told BiH media there was no dilemma who would succeed Spahić. ”We have new challenges and victories ahead of us, and I believe our supporters will support us on our path of success as they have been doing so far”, concluded the new captain of “The Dragons” and he thanked Sušić for his faith in him. ”Džeko is the favorite among the players and this is a logical decision.

Celtic declared champions as Scottish season is ended

first_imgPremiership clubs agreed on Friday that finishing the season was no longer a realistic option.Scottish clubs will not be allowed to return to training until June 10 at the earliest.The cost of testing and the fact a high percentage of players will be out of contract in May and June were also highlighted by clubs as reasons why making a return to finishing the campaign was impractical.“The SPFL has today announced that, following consultation with all 12 top-flight clubs, the Board of the SPFL has determined that the 2019/20 Premiership has been concluded with immediate effect,” the league said in a statement.By calling the season to an end, the SPFL can now release a final instalment of prize money to clubs based on their league position.“On Friday, Premiership clubs expressed their clear and unanimous view that there was no realistic prospect of completing the outstanding fixtures from season 2019/20,” said SPFL chief executive Neil Doncaster.“The SPFL board met this morning and in line with the express agreement of member clubs in April, the board determined that League season 2019/20 and the Premiership be brought to an end.“This decision now enables us to pay out around £7 million ($8.5 million) in fees to help clubs stay afloat during this incredibly difficult time.”Leagues in France, Belgium and the Netherlands have also called their seasons to a premature end.However, many more across Europe are hoping to follow the example of Germany’s Bundesliga, which has already returned behind closed doors and with a series of strict safety measures in place to protect players and staff.Share on: WhatsApp London, United Kingdom | AFP | Celtic were crowned champions for a record-equalling ninth consecutive season as the Scottish Premiership campaign was declared over on Monday.Neil Lennon’s men were 13 points clear at the top of the table when the season was stopped due to the coronavirus pandemic in March with eight games remaining for the majority of clubs.Second-placed Rangers had a game in hand to try and cut that gap and were due to face Celtic twice more before the end of the season.A points-per-game formula for determining final league placings also sees bottom club Hearts relegated unless there is any progress in talks over league reconstruction.“It is, of course, a real shame that we were not able to see out the league in front of our fans. However, no one can deny how deserved this title is,” said Celtic chief executive Peter Lawwell.“While we rightly celebrate this fantastic, deserved achievement we must take time to consider the wider circumstances we have all been experiencing and remember those who have helped us through these unique and challenging times with such bravery and selflessness.“We dedicate this title to everyone who has cared for us and all those who have been affected by these times of challenge and difficulty.”The three leagues below the Premiership were ended over a month ago when clubs passed a controversial resolution that allowed the Scottish Professional Football League (SPFL) board to also bring the top flight to a halt if it deemed the games could no longer be played.Last week Rangers failed to gain support of the 42 member clubs for an independent inquiry into how the vote on the resolution was passed.– Prize money to be released –last_img read more

Chargers taking Turner for worst
first_imgIt comes to our attention the Chargers are, in fact, being coached by one of the biggest losers in the NFL, named Norv Turner. Figuring out why they are 1-3 in his first season in San Diego isn’t something that requires a blue-ribbon panel of football experts. Even folk as simple as Chargers fans, and they hardly come dumber or easier to please, broke into a stadium-rocking chant with 3:41 to play Sunday at Qualcomm Stadium. “Mar-ty! Mar-ty! Mar-ty!” That is what they shouted, referring to former Chargers coach Marty Schottenheimer. The guy who couldn’t win in the postseason, but at least was sharp enough to go 200-126-1 in the regular season and get to the playoffs often enough to compile a 5-13 record. SAN DIEGO – Remember the San Diego Chargers, Super Bowl contenders? The team with 11 Pro Bowlers and the National Football League’s MVP back from a 14-2 team? They’re 1-3 and playing horribly. So badly, you’d think they were being coached by one of the biggest losers in the league. What? Yes? Oh, I see. Norv? A 30-16 Chargers’ home defeat at the hands of the feeble Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday drops his coaching record to 59-85-1 over parts of 10 seasons. His postseason record? That would be 1-1, both games coming the one time he blundered into the playoffs, in 1999. That the Bolts suddenly look like the Dolts isn’t a surprise, considering the track record of the guy in charge. The only real mystery is why Chargers general manager A.J.Smith thought casting Marty adrift in favor of Norv “59-85-1” Turner could possibly be an upgrade. Smith apparently didn’t like Marty, and the fact they weren’t pals apparently means the Chargers are headed back toward irrelevance. A small price to pay to make the GM feel comfortable with the coach. So, here is the team of LaDainian Tomlinson, Shawne Merriman and Antonio Gates that is last in the AFC West, apparently helpless as kittens and, perhaps, in retrospect, happy they got to face Chicago’s Rex Grossman in one of his last starts or they might be 0-4. The Chargers’ stink bomb of a defeat Sunday was comprehensive. To wit: They lost two fumbles, and Philip Rivers, bearing no resemblance to the star of 2006, threw two interceptions, including one aimed at Tomlinson before he had turned around. They gave up 30 points to a team that had scored 26 in its first three games combined. They blew a 16-6 halftime lead and couldn’t score on first-and-goal at the 5 with five minutes left. After seeing Tomlinson rush for 116 yards and a touchdown on 14 carries in the first half, they gave the ball to him only six times in the second half. It was enough to turn normally sedate Chargers fans into boo birds. “I can’t say I blame them,” Tomlinson said. Said Rivers: “We understand to an extent their frustration.” Well, sure you do. You used to play for a coach who didn’t lose games to teams as wretched as these Chiefs. And now you play for a guy who can’t quite figure out what went wrong. “It’s usually those little details,” Turner said, discussing plays gone awry, “little things in terms of handling a blitz, handling a protection scheme, whatever they may be, that’s ultimately going to make the difference.” Norv’s teams have been having trouble with those little things for quite some time now, going back to seven seasons and a 49-59-1 record at Washington and two seasons (9-23) in Oakland. Frankly, Smith and the Chargers brass screwed this up royally by not firing Schottenheimer soon enough to promote their ace offensive coordinator (Cam Cameron, now head coach at Miami) or their ace defensive coordinator (Wade Phillips, now running things at Dallas). So Smith got Norv, and the Chargers got trouble with a capital T. As in Turner. “This thing is getting away from us,” veteran fullback Lorenzo Neal said, “and before you know it you’ll look back in six or seven weeks and say, `What happened?’ We have to stop it, now. If you continue by saying it’s going to get better, you’re living a pipe dream.” Said defensive end Igor Olshansky: “If we don’t turn this around real quick, it’s not going to be a good season for us.” Do tell. Well, don’t hold your breath, Igor. Bad seasons seem to follow Norv Turner around. It’s uncanny. [email protected] local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

People were thinking, ‘Oh, you finished 10th…’, but with a couple fewer wins, we could have been in the bottom five, so it was a miracle.”If we do the same this year with teams spending even more money than last year, it will be a miracle.” last_img read more

Air Canada union files human rights complaint over flight attendant treatment

first_imgTORONTO – The union representing Air Canada flight attendants says it has filed a human rights complaint alleging “systemic discrimination and harassment” of its members.The Canadian Union of Public Employees says the airline’s policies on uniforms and makeup are discriminatory towards female flight attendants on the basis of sex, sexual orientation and race.It adds the company’s new onboard service managers, who perform in-flight assessments of flight attendants, have made sexist, racist and homophobic remarks and have engaged in “inappropriate behaviour” towards flight attendants of both sexes.The union that represents 8,500 flight attendants at Air Canada and Rouge is turning to the Canadian Human Rights Commission because the employer has failed to deal with members’ complaints, says CUPE section vice-president Beth Mahan.It is asking the commission to order a review of Air Canada policies and eliminate the onboard service managers program.A spokeswoman for Air Canada says that it has policies related to grooming and presentation, which she says is the standard for major international carriers.But she says that because the matter is before the human rights tribunal, the company won’t comment further.Last month, WestJet Airlines Ltd. filed an appeal after the Supreme Court of British Columbia refused to throw out a proposed class-action lawsuit that accuses the company of fostering a corporate culture that tolerates harassment against female employees.Former flight attendant Mandalena Lewis is suing WestJet over allegations of gender-based discrimination, accusing her former employer of breaking its promise to provide a harassment-free workplace for women.Companies in this story include: (TSX:AC, TSX:WJA)last_img read more
