But a stadium named after him might be a small homage towards the great footballer,” he added.This is going to be the first-ever stadium in the country to be named after any footballer.Bhutia, the first Indian footballer to play 100 International matches said he is “honoured”.“I”m very much honoured and excited. If you look at the larger picture I”m happier because the budding footballers will get another top-class facility and infrastructure to play football.“This stadium has produced many footballers including me. I have so many memories of playing there,” Bhutia said.Groundwork of the Bhaichung Bhutia Football Stadium started in 2010 before it faced many roadblocks owing to financial difficulties.After Prem Singh Tamang, the current Chief Minister of Sikkim, assumed his office, the construction work resumed once again.“Our chief minister is an avid football supporter and he himself took interest to fast-track the construction work. Had the COVID-19 pandemic situation not disturbed the entire scenario, the stadium could have already been inaugurated already,” Ethenpa said.The artificial turf has already been laid besides setting up a 15,000-capacity stands. Ethenpa added that the plan of installing floodlights is already in the pipeline and it will be covered in the second phase of work.“After resuming the work, it took less than fourteen months to finish. Chief Minister himself was monitoring the progress. The capacity of the stadium is 15,000 and we”ve already planned to install floodlights in the second phase.”Bhutia said that he has submitted a proposal to establish an academy in the vicinity of the stadium which will, in turn, encourage more youngsters to take up football.“We have already spoken with the state government about setting up a football academy. It will be a joint venture between the government and United Sikkim — the biggest semi-professional football club in this region.” Football PSL 2021 Playoffs Live: How to watch PSL 2021 Playoffs LIVE streaming in your country, India Euro 2020 LIVE broadcast in more than 200 countries, check how you can watch Live Streaming of EURO 2020 in your country Euro 2020, Italy vs Wales: 3 key battles to watch out for in ITA vs WAL Stadium named after Bhaichung Bhutia to be inaugurated soon in Namchi Cricket WI vs SA 2nd Test Day 3 Live: Start delayed due to wet outfield, SA lead by 149 runs – Follow Live Updates Euro 2020: Didier Deschamps offers Ousmane Dembele update ahead of Portugal matchlast_img read more

The easyJet share price: a bargain buy, or throwing good money after bad?

Image source: Getty Images. Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! Budget airline easyJet (LSE: EZJ) just put out a year-end trading update. It’s as gloomy as we expected, but I think there are some brighter signs — though admittedly, not many and perhaps not all that bright. The easyJet share price is now down 64% in 2020. And that will present a dilemma for those who like to invest in recovery prospects.So what’s upbeat in the latest news? Well, in the fourth quarter, easyJet carried more than nine million flyers. And for the full year, the company reckons passenger numbers reached 48 million. To put that into perspective, the previous year saw easyJet carrying 96 million. That’s half the numbers, with the easyJet share price down more than a half.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…The weighting of the year, ending in September, does make that look more favourable, having given the airline a first quarter at full capacity before the scary ‘Covid’ word terrified the world.But the figure of nine million carried in the final quarter is better than I’d expected. It does, though, represent a full-year equivalent of only 36 million. And it was the September quarter, with winter still to come. For the first quarter of the new year, chief executive Johan Lundgren said that “based on current travel restrictions we expect to fly c.25% of planned capacity for Q1 2021.“easyJet share price attractive now?But early booking levels for summer 2021 are, apparently, in line with previous years. Folks who’ve been locked down and had no holiday escape in 2020 appear optimistic. And it obviously all depends on how much progress we make on the coronavirus vaccine front between now and spring. If the firm really can get close to normal flying by next summer, the easyJet share price could turn out to be a bargain attraction at today’s levels.But against that, the financial situation looks horrendous. And CEO Lundgren is crying out for help, saying: “Aviation continues to face the most severe threat in its history and the UK Government urgently needs to step up with a bespoke package of measures to ensure airlines are able to support economic recovery when it comes.”He adds that “easyJet came into this crisis in a very strong position thanks to its strong balance sheet and consistent profitability. This year will be the first time in its history that easyJet has ever made a full-year loss.”Watch that balance sheetAt 30 September, easyJet faced net debt of £1.1bn, from £326m a year previously. The company did have cash and cash equivalents of  approximately £2.3 billion. That cash figure might look comforting, but it has to be seen against easyJet’s cash burn rate. The firm is expecting Q4 cash burn of “less than” £700m, following on from £774m in Q3.Still tempted by the easyJet share price? If business doesn’t pick up dramatically in the next six months, I can see easyJet needing a new injection of funding. And even if things look better next summer, we just have no idea how diluted existing shareholders will be then. Or what easyJet’s balance sheet and debt situation will look like.My final reason for not buying is that easyJet is an airline. One of the best airlines, in my view. But it’s still an airline, and I still reckon that industry is potential poison.center_img I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future.

TMO controversies involving England Of course there has been controversy recently in terms of TMO’s with England having a try disallowed against the All Blacks which ultimately cost the Roses victory.Sam Underhill thought he had scored a sublime try as he ran rings around Beauden Barrett to score in the corner, however the score was disallowed after Courtney Lawes was judged to have been offside when he charged down a kick by scrum-half TJ Perenara. WELCOME TO the big time, Sam Underhill. England… LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Collapse TMO controversies involving England After the game the boy said: “I saw the touch judge’s flag up and then I saw that New Zealand were scoring a try.“And when they scored the try, I said to the touch judge ‘this shouldn’t happen, why don’t you go on and tell him?’ And the touch judge said ‘no I can’t do that’.“Then one of the people in the ground told me to go on yourself.”It took a while, but eventually the correct decision was made.

All Blacks claim the Rugby Championship after epic battle with the Springboks

first_imgSaturday Oct 5, 2013 All Blacks claim the Rugby Championship after epic battle with the Springboks The Springboks knew what was needed to claim the Rugby Championship, and achieved part of the mammoth task by scoring a four try bonus point, but conceded five in what was a thrilling game of rugby, won 38-27 by the All Blacks in the end. New Zealand won at Ellis Park for the first time in 16 years as they not only beat their greatest rivals away from home, but claimed another Rugby Championship title, going unbeaten all season.They started the better of the two sides with a brilliant early try to prolific tryscorer Ben Smith. The Springboks then bounced back with two great tries of their own, finished well by Bryan Habana. First it was Duane Vermeulen that put Habana away, then Francois Louw with an excellent pass before the speedy winger chipped the covering defence. Habana pulled up shortly after that with a hamstring injury, leaving the field on 52 Test tries.Liam Messam crossed for the All Blacks after a strong build up, and also made a decisive blow just before halftime, after South Africa had attempted to run the ball out from their own 22.Messam was later yellow carded for slowing the ball down, as was Ben Franks, although his was for a swinging arm to the face of replacement prop Coenie Oosthuizen.Willie Le Roux scored, and then Jean De Villiers crossed for the all important fourth try but with the All Blacks having scored three of their own at that stage, by the time Beauden Barrett scored it was Championship over for the home side, taking a slight bit of sting out of the contest.Read, who had an incredible match, got on the end of a neat bit of play by Julain Savea, rubbing salt into the wounds and extending the visitors’ lead, securing the well deserved win.Over 60 000 fans witnessed an unbelievable spectacle, one that will long be remembered as an epic game between the two best teams in the world. A mention should also be made of referee Nigel Owens, who did a stellar job under immense pressure on an enourmous occasion.Better quality highlights will be posted soon but share your opinion on this classic game below <mce:script language=’JavaScript1.1′ mce_src=”http://ad-ace.doubleclick.net/adj/N4827.147781.RUGBYDUMP.COM/B7843647.17;abr=!ie;sz=400×80;ord=[timestamp]”> </mce:script> <NOSCRIPT> <A HREF=”http://ad-ace.doubleclick.net/jump/N4827.147781.RUGBYDUMP.COM/B7843647.17;abr=!ie4;abr=!ie5;sz=400×80;ord=[timestamp]?” mce_HREF=”http://ad-ace.doubleclick.net/jump/N4827.147781.RUGBYDUMP.COM/B7843647.17;abr=!ie4;abr=!ie5;sz=400×80;ord=[timestamp]”> <IMG SRC=”http://ad-ace.doubleclick.net/ad/N4827.147781.RUGBYDUMP.COM/B7843647.17;abr=!ie4;abr=!ie5;sz=400×80;ord=[timestamp]?” mce_SRC=”http://ad-ace.doubleclick.net/ad/N4827.147781.RUGBYDUMP.COM/B7843647.17;abr=!ie4;abr=!ie5;sz=400×80;ord=[timestamp]” BORDER=0 WIDTH=400 HEIGHT=80 ALT=”Advertisement”></A> </NOSCRIPT> ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error All Blacks , The Rugby Championship Related Articles 40 WEEKS AGO North vs South should be a permanent fixture… 40 WEEKS AGO Barrett could easily end up on All Blacks… 42 WEEKS AGO Future All Blacks?

IT SNOT ON: Player makes awkward apology after getting heavy ban for clearing his nose on opposition

first_imgThursday Feb 21, 2019 IT SNOT ON: Player makes awkward apology after getting heavy ban for clearing his nose on opposition Cheetahs centre Nico Lee has received a massive 13-week ban after his ‘unsportsmanlike behaviour’ in Saturday’s PRO 14 match. Lee could be seen clearing the contents of his nose on a prone Connacht player at the bottom of a ruck. ADVERTISEMENTThe Free State Cheetahs have made an official statement, condemning the actions of Lee but supporting their player going forward.“The unsportsmanlike behaviour is seen in a very serious light by rugby hierarchy. The Toyota Cheetahs condemn this behaviour which it is not part of the team culture and accept the punishment as such.“Nico is a star player and according to information from the team, he deeply regrets his behaviour and apologised immediately after the match to the opponent. The Toyota Cheetahs realise that he is remorseful of his actions and the team accepts the apology.”After being cited for allegedly infringing Law 9.27 – A player must not do anything that is against the spirit of good sportsmanship, a disciplinary hearing in Cardiff heard that Lee accepted that he did in fact commit the alleged act of foul play.The panel found that: “The player’s actions are an act of foul play. They have no place in the game. This is not a case of over-exuberance, or an act which is within the rules of the game going awry. It follows that by its nature this act is one that is deserving of punishment. It is contrary to the spirit of sport.”ADVERTISEMENTIt was accepted that: “The effect on the victim player was understandably serious. There is no expectation, and there ought never be an expectation, that an opposing player would clear the contents of their nose onto an opponent.”In upholding the citing complaint the disciplinary committee deemed that the offence merited a red card with a top-end offence with an entry point of 26 weeks.In reaching that conclusion the panel found that: “It is difficult to imagine how an act of foul play of this sort could be worse, save for repeated acts or where actual injury is caused.”The panel did not find any aggravating factors and applied mitigation of 50 per cent in respect of the player’s admission of facts, and his clean disciplinary record. The panel found that the player’s approach to the hearing and his conduct throughout was mature, sensible and considered. They found that there was demonstrable “regret and an element of embarrassment about the situation”.ADVERTISEMENTThe committee took into account the rugby calendar for the rest of the season and for domestic fixtures in South Africa, and as a result, Lee is banned for a period of 13 games and is free to play from midnight on Sunday, July 21, 2019.Lee and the Cheetahs put out an official apology, with Lee stating that it’s not the type of person he is.“It was an act of stupidity.. I’d just like to say sorry, and apologise for everything,” he said.

Survey shows support for greater protection of donor rights

It is imperative that charities embrace technology. This will enable them to have a single view of their donor data and responsibly manage this, to understand their donors’ preferences and therefore engage appropriately.”  86 total views,  1 views today Advertisement About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.
