NIGEL RODDIS & nbsp; (REUTERS) ‘); return false; “class =” item-multimedia “>NIGEL RODDIS (REUTERS) On September 1, 2008 Manchester changed forever when Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed Al-Nahyan became the top shareholder of Manchester City with the Abu Dhabi United Group for Development and Investment in exchange for 250 million euros. The older brother of United (founded in 1894) wanted to start discussing the hegemony of red devils in the city and in English football and also, immediately.The same day, left and right hand signing offers began to come from the blue side of Manchester. The sheikh wanted to give a blow of effect wearing one of the great soccer players of the moment.One of those who received it was Real Madrid and for Robinho, then a white star who had been trying to force Chelsea out all summer. Just one day before leaving, he summoned the press and explained the reasons for his rebellion. “It was not once, nor twice, nor three times that my representative and my father went to the club to renovate and the club was not very interested in my permanence either. I have nothing against Cristiano, but I have my pride. Now as the club has not managed to sign it seems that they are not interested in me leaving, but my intention is to leave, “he let loose as a direct missile to Real Madrid and also to a Bernd Schuster (” He is not my father, he is my coach “) who promised to recover 10 for the cause.Thus, an hour and a half before closing, young Robson saw how his wishes came true but, not him as he expected. Manchester City put 40 million euros on the table, in cash, and took the Brazilian, whose agent Wagner Ribeiro tried until late that Chelsea match the offer. Those in London did not, the Brazilian was already skyblue. A brief and ruinous idyllThe first galactic of the City of Abu Dhabi did not come out much less as expected. The Brazilian said he would become “the best in the world” but stayed away. In their first season, 14 Premier League goals left a good taste but failed to meet the expectations of what was the second most expensive signing of the summer of 2008 after Dimitar Berbatov, whereby United rose to 45 million euros. Only one in his debut against Chelsea (defeat by 1-3) went to one of the great teams that dominated then. His best match in the Premier came in October with his hat trick at Stoke and in the Europa League he barely remembers a goal for Twente. If within the field he shone halfway, he did it more outside, where the parties condemned him in the eyes of Mark Hughes, who disapproved of his nightlife. “I liked Manchester, the City, the restaurants … but let’s not forget the discos. I had a party image. And yes, I liked the party, “he told Daily Mail in 2017 where he also said that he put more effort into watching Brazilian soccer players (Jô, Elano …) more than the English, like Joe Hart, Micah Richards or Wright-Phillips. In its second season, the decline. An ankle injury left him out eleven games and since the arrival of Mancini disappeared from the starting team. Five matches at his command until on January 28, 2010, just three days after his birthday, he was assigned to Santos.53 games (over € 800,000 / game), 16 goals (2.6 million per goal) and zero titles was the balance of the first big signing of the not so new owner.
A leading Donegal GAA club has slammed online bullying and in particular the use of the ask.fm website.Erin GallagherTermon GAA Club said it will not tolerate anybody who uses offensive comments through it’s Facebook page.The club says we have already seen the devastation such bullying can do to children in Co Donegal. In October, Ballybofey schoolgirl Erin Gallagher, 13, took her own life amidst claims that she was being bullied online.It has since emerged that three girls originally blamed online for the bullying were innocent – and they themselves were bullied.In a hard-hitting statement issued on its Facebook page, Termon GAA Club says it is the club’s policy to remove and block friends who use insulting or offensive comments about other Facebook users.“This is due entirely to the reputation of ask.fm and the terrible price some children have paid for using it. “The pain and devastation caused to the families of those who have taken their lives due to online bullying is unacceptable to us at Termon GAA.“If you wish to continue using ask.fm and making foul comments about others, please remove them from our home page as we do not wish to be party to them.“We will have no hesitation in naming and shaming those continue to bully online. We will also report you to facebook and the relevant authorities,” warns a spokesman for Termon GAA club.The following is a further reply from Termon GAA Club in relation to a number of comments left on Donegal Daily today.“In reply to the Letterkenny posts in particular, this is not an internal problem at our club thank God. It is a problem nationwide and a growing one at that. It is up to us adults to police our own homepages as neither facebook or ask.fm seem willing to do so. We did not put up our post in haste, indeed did so only after weeks of careful scrutiny on our homepage. The young lady who was removed from our site posted very hurtful and offensive comments regarding the appearance of another girl. As she named this unfortunate girl for all her peers to see we feel she should have no right to anonymity. We asked her to remove these comments several times, which she refused to do, only then did we block her. As we stated before, this conduct is totally unacceptable to us and we would ask all GAA clubs across Ireland to join with us in protecting our young members. Thank you very much for your comments, whether you agreed or disagreed with us. It is only by discussing this huge online problem that we will find a solution. Meanwhile we stand by our statement and if you visit our site you will discover we are providing helpline numbers, and links to anti bullying sites. It is the wish of Termon GAA that no child will feel abandoned or left defenseless to the cruelty of bullying. We will provide any help and total anonymity to any child or parent who wishes to contact us. Thank you.
