Mourinho: “I don’t feel free to speak”

first_imgJosé Mourinhocame out swinging after being hit with an FA charge for improper conduct for ironically congratulating referee Mike Dean on an “unbelievable performance” in the Sunderland match, claiming he feels gagged and calling on people to show Chelsea more respect.”I cannot say a lot. I do not feel free. Because every time I speak, there’s a consequence. Even if I say the referee was amazing, that is a reason for me to be charged. If you want a better press conference, speak with the FA”, Mourinho fumed.The Portuguese coach revealed that Eden Hazard is a doubt for Wednesday’s return leg against Atlético: “Hazard is out for Sunday, and I think he is out for Wednesday, but let’s wait”.Quizzed about whether he would be fielding a second-string line-up on Sunday at Anfield in order to keep his first-choice players fresh for the Champions League, Mou claimed that was a “private” decision and stated that Chelsea “deserve more respect than they are getting” for what they have “done for English football for the last 10 years”.”[The fans] want Chelsea to go to Liverpool and play, as always, at the maximum giving everything they have. Which players? That’s our decision, not your decision”, added the coach.Asked about the Blues’ chances of winning silverware this season, the ex-Real Madrid man stated that his only concern is “to give everything to our club, to make our families proud of us as good, professional honest people”. Mourinho also ruled himself out of the United job: “I told Chelsea they never have to worry about me because I don’t want to leave. I will stay here until the club wants me to leave”.last_img read more

Red Bank Acts to Stop the Stickers

first_imgBy John BurtonRED BANK – Mayor Pasquale Menna said he has a solution for what he said has been a longstanding bane: promotional stickers that continually find their way onto public and private property without the owners’ consent.At last Wednesday’s Borough Council meeting Menna announced his plans to hopefully prevent any further damage to property.His plan, the mayor explained, would be to bring up the issue when businesses are seeking approval from the local planning or zoning boards. As Menna explained, the future ordinance, when adopted by the borough, would ask businesses if they intend to distribute promotional adhesive stickers as part of their marketing and advertising plan. If so, they must assure the board that the stickers would have an easily removable adhesive backing. That would be a condition of board approval for the business to move forward.“I take destruction of property very seriously,” Menna said at last week’s meeting.If future businesses agree to the provision, yet fail to adhere to it, “You will be notified that one of your signs are there,” he said. If the sticker is not easy to get it off, the offending business would be subject to daily penalties.“It’s a shame you to have to be Big Brother,” but there appears no other way to curtail the practice and damage, Menna said.Menna has long railed about local businesses who give out the stickers, which can be easily found adhered to street and traffic signs and walls throughout the community, especially in the downtown business district.“The biggest culprit” last week said Borough Council­woman Kathy Horgan is Cluck-U Chicken, a sandwich and chicken takeout restaurant, 50 Water Street.“I see no reason we have to clean up Cluck-U stickers on every sign,” Menna said. But he added, “They’ve been talked to.”And on Monday, Robert Lisi, the manager on duty at Cluck-U Chicken said, “We pretty much stopped it about a year ago.“We’re doing other things,” like giving out key rings, to promote the business, Lisi said.According to Menna, the previous borough attorney told the governing body it would be difficult to enforce any prohibition on the stickers or to penalize the businesses for distributing them; only if a culprit was witnessed putting it on property, could that individual be criminally charged.Putting it in the boards’ hands would mean it would be up to the businesses to self-regulate, Menna said.This would only impact new businesses, however, Menna said.last_img read more


first_imgTRAINER QUOTES -30- MARK CASSE, CONQUEST TWO STEP, WINNER: “They set it up nice for him. I was smiling pretty big down the backside (at the fractions) watching those three go at it. I thought he was a big price based on his last effort, but I understand everybody likes to see two in a row. I kind of like it myself. When they run a big race, you want to see them come back and do it again.”Next race? “I don’t know. We’ll enjoy this one today and hopefully try to win another one.” JOCKEY QUOTES JEFF BONDE, DISTINCTIV PASSION, FOURTH: “One hole, no good.” NOTES: The winning owners are Ernie Semersky and Dory Newel of Highland Park, Illinois, who race as Conquest Stables LLC. JOE TALAMO, CONQUEST TWO STEP, WINNER: “He had a perfect trip. I was very happy to see three horses in a speed duel. I just stayed outside and he wasn’t even getting any dirt in his face. What a race he ran. We were high on his last race, when he ran second to Shared Belief (in the Grade I Malibu) and I know a lot of people thought it was a fluke but he really ran that same race again today.“It feels good to get my third win today. It’s not the first time I’ve started a meet slow; I was zero for eighty one time at this meet. It’s just a part of the game. You have to keep your head up and keep working hard. It’s not what you’re doing when you win, it’s what you do when you’re losing. You have to stay focused and keep a good mind-set.”MIKE SMITH, DISTINCTIV PASSION, FOURTH: “I didn’t have a lot of options and I didn’t get a breather, not one. His last race (Grade III Midnight Lute Dec. 27) when I was on the outside, I was able to let Heir of Storm challenge me on the inside; I just sat out there. Today, I was down on the rail and they were on top of me the whole way. Other than that, he ran a good race today.”last_img read more
