Exclusive – Wenger will help Welbeck emulate Henry, claims ex-Arsenal striker

first_imgFormer Arsenal striker Kevin Campbell believes Danny Welbeck can emulate Gunners great Thierry Henry.The Frenchman arrived in north London with a point to prove, having previously been used in a wide role by Serie A giants Juventus, and went on to become a legend at the club.Welbeck suffered a similar fate at Manchester United and Campbell claims Arsene Wenger can bring the best out of the 23-year-old – just like he did with Henry.“I do see similarities between Welbeck and Henry,” he told Hawksbee and Jacobs. “Thierry Henry was nowhere near the finished article when he arrived at Arsenal, and just look what happened to his game. It was elevated to the highest level.“I would like to think Danny Welbeck can get up to those heights, there or thereabouts anyway.“Arsene Wenger is very good at developing players and Welbeck is a willing learner. He has everything.“He is only going to get better because his confidence is going to grow. Somebody like Welbeck, with his skill set, is going to be a very dangerous striker in the Premier League.”last_img read more

Contract for Metro transit patrols up for grabs

first_imgCompetition for the $62.5 million annual contract to police the city’s mass transit system is heating up among some law enforcement agencies, months before bidding wars begin. Metro’s five-year agreement with the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department will expire June 30, 2008, and officials do not yet know if they will renew it. The transit agency is reviewing other security options that could dismantle the sheriff’s grip on the mass transit system and save about $4.7 million. Roger Snoble, Metro’s chief executive officer, said at a recent workshop that the security-program review should not be considered a criticism of the Sheriff’s Department and its staff assigned to the transit agency. “We are very happy with the Sheriff’s Department,” said Snoble. “But we are always looking for the best fit.” “We are definitely interested in the contract,” said Tanaka. “We believe it is a good contract for the Sheriff’s Department. We believe it is a good contract for the people we provide service to: the Metro authority and its ridership.” Metro security work was shared from 1998 to 2003 by its own officers; by the Sheriff’s Department, which patrolled unincorporated Los Angeles; and by the Los Angeles Police Department, which covered the city of Los Angeles. The job involves security on five rail lines, a dedicated busway and 2,250 buses. But in 2003, the Sheriff’s Department beat out the LAPD for a five-year contract to police the mass transit system, after submitting a proposal that was $7 million cheaper in its first year than if the LAPD had continued sharing duties. Although the stage could be set for another tug of war between the two law enforcement agencies, LAPD officials on Friday were not aware of any plans to bid on the impending contract. “There is no tug,” said LAPD Lt. Roger Mora. “There isn’t even a pull.” Ultimately, a decision will come from Metro’s board, which will hash out the direction for its security program and then solicit bids. It could involve a variety of competing interests. Among the 13 Metro board members are all five members of the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors, which oversees the Sheriff’s Department’s budgeting, as well as L.A. Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa and his three Metro appointees, including Councilman Bernard Parks, former chief of the LAPD. Others on the Metro board include Glendale Mayor Ara Najarian, Santa Monica Councilwoman Pam O’Connor and Long Beach Councilwoman Bonnie Lowenthal. A Duarte councilman also serves. Security would be fractured if multiple police agencies handled it for the transit agency, said Dan Finkelstein, Metro transit police chief and a Sheriff’s Department commander. “Having an entity that can cross all the geographic boundaries makes sense,” Finkelstein said. At a recent workshop to review security, Parks warned the board that reducing the number of armed deputies and replacing them with lower-level security officers, just to save some money, puts all security at risk. “It could be a ticket they (passengers) show them,” said Parks. “Or it could be a gun.” sue.doyle@dailynews.com (818) 713-3746160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! Metro is considering fattening up its own staff from 94 to 350 security officers who can conduct more of the lower-level activities that some deputies are performing now, such as checking passengers’ fares. In addition, Metro would contract with a law enforcement agency to act as the central core of its operations, as the Sheriff’s Department now does and could bid to continue doing. But Metro is considering paring down sworn officers from the 387 working today to about 100, said Jack Eckles, Metro deputy executive officer for systems, safety and security. The transit agency could then negotiate contracts with other local police departments getting paid overtime to patrol buses and rails passing through their jurisdictions. Already, police agencies from Pasadena, Long Beach, Glendale and Santa Monica are interested in the shot to patrol the bus and rail lines running through their jurisdictions, Eckles said. The county Sheriff’s Department is interested in pursuing the contract again, as long as the Metro board believes the agency is providing the appropriate level of service, said Paul Tanaka, assistant sheriff. last_img read more

Google stock at $600 a share

first_imgThe biggest beneficiaries of the stock’s ascension have been Larry Page and Sergey Brin, who began developing their search engine, then called BackRub, in a Stanford University dorm room in 1996. Page and Brin, both 34, rank among the world’s wealthiest people, with fortunes approaching $20 billion each. Google’s CEO, Eric Schmidt, and top sales executive Omid Kordestani have also accumulated enough stock in the company to become multibillionaires. Hundreds of other Google employees are millionaires. Google’s stock has reigned as one of the hottest commodities on Wall Street because its search engine has turned into a moneymaking machine as advertisers spend more on the Internet to connect with consumers who are increasingly shunning television, radio and traditional print media. Google’s search engine is the hub of the Web’s most lucrative ad network. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

By Michael Liedtke THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Google Inc.’s stock price sailed past $600 for the first time Monday, extending a monthlong rally propelled by the lofty expectations surrounding the Internet search leader’s upcoming third-quarter earnings report. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREChargers go winless in AFC West with season-ending loss in Kansas CityThe Mountain View-based company’s shares traded as high as $610.26 before slipping back to $609.62, a gain of $15.57, or 2.6percent. It marked the sixth time in the past 12 trading sessions that the stock has reached a new high, showing investors are confident Google’s third-quarter profit will be impressive. The results are scheduled to be released Oct. 18. The latest milestone served as yet another reminder of the immense wealth created since Google went public in August 2004. The shares have increased more than sevenfold from their initial public offering price of $85, bringing the nine-year-old company’s market value to $190 billion – eclipsing bigger, more mature businesses such as Wal-Mart Stores Inc., Coca-Cola Co., Hewlett-Packard Co. and IBM Corp. It took 10 months for Google’s stock to leap from $500 to $600 and more than a year for the journey from $400 to $500. The shares hurdled $300 in June 2005 after passing the $100 and $200 thresholds in 2004. Analysts began predicting Google’s stock would reach $600 at the start of 2006 when the shares were still hovering around $420. Some analysts are already predicting Google’s stock will hit $700 within the next year, but the average target price for the stock is $614.64 among analysts polled by Thomson Financial. last_img read more

Throw in is at 6.45pm and all support greatly appreciated.*Seniors*CLG BnaG 2-10 Buncrana 0-9Our Seniors got back to winning ways on Sunday to maintain their position at the top of the table with a win over Buncrana. It was Buncrana who got off to a flier though and scored 3 unanswered points to leave them 0-3 to no score up after 10 minutes. It was Christopher Barrett who got Na Galloglaighs first score after 12 minutes before Cathal Mc Gettigan scored 2 points to level the game up after 15. The next few scores were tit for tat with McGettigan and Tj Evesson scoring points before a superb team move from our own kick out saw Chippie finish to the back of the net on 27 minutes. This put the boys 2 points clear and this became 5 points when Jonny Logue got another goal on 29. Another good team move saw Logue clean through and his first effort brought a great save from the Buncrana keeper but Jonny reacted quickest to score the rebound. A McGettigan free with the last kick of the half put the boys in a commanding 6 point lead at half time, 2-6 to 0-6. The second half was a low scoring affair with Buncrana scoring first after 41 minutes and scored again on 44. Na Galloglaigh responded with 2 of their own from Gavin Grier and Barrett to maintain the 6 point lead. The defence was on top for much of the second half and seen out the game relatively comfortably, although Sean Gallagher was called upon to make 2 superb saves in the last few minutes. As the game came to a close some security points were scored by Darragh Black and Grier again to leave the full time score 2-10 to 0-9. Next up for the boys is a Intermediate Championship Quarter Final clash with Aodh Ruadh on Friday night under the lights in Convoy, 8pm throw in. With Aodh Ruadh losing at home to Letterkenny Gaels this evening the boys will be hoping the fixture goes to form and they advance to the Semi Final. All support greatly appreciated. Team: Sean Gallagher. Kieran Sheridan, Sean Black, Gavin Grier (0-2), TJ Evesson (0-1), Gary Merritt, Enda McHugh, Jonny Logue (1-0), Joey Cullen, Pauric Curley, Christopher Barrett (1-2), Kieran Mc Laughlin, Kyle Black, Cathal McGettigan (0-4), Paddy Peoples. Subs: Darragh Black (0-1) for McLaughlin (40m), Adam Serrinha for McHugh (54m), Barry McNulty, Shay Durning, Paul Grier.*Reserves*CLG BnaG 3-7 Buncrana 1-16Na Galloglaigh went down to Buncrana in the Reserve match which sees Buncrana extend their winning streak to 10 games. Once again a poor first half left them with too much to do in the second period. Nevertheless the second half was a greatly improved display.Playing against a breeze the boys struggled to get the ball up the pitch and didn’t win enough breaking ball in the middle third. Buncrana were ruthless to leave the half time score 0-2 to 0-12. The second half was much much better from Na Galloglaighs point of view and when a long range effort from Paul Fisher ended up in the back of the net the boys started to get a bit of belief, especially when Dylan Hegarty added a second goal moments later. Buncrana responded to this with a goal of their own to put 7 between the sides again, much to the disappointed of Na Galloglaighs defence as they felt there was a throw ball in the build up. At the other end Dylan Hegarty was denied a strong penalty shout which would have come in handy as gaffer Ciaran McHugh put just 3 between the sides with a goal on 57 minutes. In the end Buncrana ran out with a 3 point win, and on the balance of play deserved the victory, although Na Galloglaigh will feel like they nearly could have nicked it. No game for the Reserves next week due to the Intermediate Championship. Team: Gavin McFadden, Shay Durning, Barry McNulty, Emmet Conaghan, Cormac Friel, Paul Grier, Connor Jason Meakin, Paul Sweeney, Anthony Fisher, Paddy Mc Carron, Luke Trearty (0-1), Paul Fisher (1-4), Dean Burgess, Dylan Hegarty (1-2), Brandon Toye. Subs: Tony McGettigan for Conaghan (HT), Hugh Mc Menamin for Toye (HT), Caolan Bolton for Meakin (HT), Ciaran McHugh (1-0) for McCarron (HT), Patrick Ferry for Sweeney (45m)*Minor Championship Semi Final*CLG BnaG 2-8 Bundoran 2-6Na Galloglaigh have sealed their place in the Minor Championship final after a thrilling win over Bundoran in Killygordon last Wednesday night. The opening period was a tight and cagey affair with Bundoran slightly on top but both teams struggling to make scoring chances. It was Bundoran who got the first score of the match when their centre half forward snuck in for goal to stick the ball past Gavin McFadden on 11 minutes. Gavin Grier got Na Galloglaighs first point after 13 minutes but some poor passing and choice selections made scoring chances hard to come by. It was in the last 15 minutes of the half with the score at 0-1 to 1-1 before the boys started to come to life. Their strong direct running at the heart of the Bundoran defence cut them open on numerous occasions and it was one such run from Adam Serrinha which saw Na Galloglaigh get their opening goal when he smashed home on 19th minutes. Further points from Luke Trearty, Shane McNamee and Serrinha in the last few minutes left the boys in a strong position leading 1-4 to 1-1. The second half was much the same with Bundoran being on top again in the opening exchanges, and they scored 1-1 in the first 5 minutes to put them back in the lead. Nevertheless Na Galloglaigh kept making numerous goal chances when they ran straight at Bundoran and had a gilt edged chance to go back into the lead on 38 minutes. A great run from McNamee saw himself and Martin Doyle clean through and bearing down on goal, but McNamees unselfish pass was just too high for Doyle. Bundoran then went up the pitch to go 2 points clear with 15 minutes left. Na Galloglaigh never gave up and created more goal chances with Grier and Kane Barrett shooting narrowly wide. Grier got a point with 11 minutes left to narrow the margin to the minimum, before seconds later Connor Gormley leveled the game up. Bundoran responded with another point on 51 before a minute later Gormley, effectively playing on one leg after a very heavy knock in the first half, finished to the back of the net to leave the score 2-6 to 2-4 with 8 minutes left. Substitute Kane Barrett then stepped up to knock over a point before Gormley scored again on 55 to put 4 between the sides. Bundoran knocked over a free on 57 to make for a nervy finish with a goal in it. Deep in injury time a sweeping Bundoran move saw them bearing down on goal before Cormac Toland, who had been superb all game at corner back, made a match saving tackle just outside the box. Bundoran tapped over the free but there wasn’t much time left afterwards as the referee blew the final whistle to see Na Galloglaigh win 2-8 to 2-6. It was a deserved victory for the boys who will have badly wanted to win this game tonight after losing to Bundoran in the league final. Na Galloglaigh will now take on Kilcar in the final as they defeated Cloughaneely 1-10 to 0-7 in the other semi final, venue an date to be announced. Team: Gavin McFadden, Patrick Ferry, Kieran Sheridan, Odhrán Coll, Ryan Mcmahon, Ronan Docherty, Cormac Toland, Luke Trearty (0-1), Connor Gormley (1-2), Conor Mc Hugh, Adam Serrinha (1-1), Ryan Spike Flood, Gavin Grier (0-2), Martin Doyle, Shane McNamee (0-1). Subs: Kane Barrett (0-1) for Doyle (40m), Ryan Toye for Flood (40m), Peter Curran, Hayden Curran, Jamie-Lee Blaney, Paddy Mc Carron *U16 Championship*Buncrana 4-16 CLG BnaG 0-6With 3 teams on 4 points a threeway playoff was needed to see who advances past the U16 Division 1 group stages. Unfortunately Na Galloglaigh were defeated in Buncrana last night in the first of these playoff games leaving them with a must win game now against MacCumhaills, provisionally fixed for this Friday evening. The Club would like to wish a speedy recovery to Ronan Docherty who broke his collarbone during last nights game. Ronan has been a key man for the U16s and Minors this season and will surely be a huge loss to the Minors for their Final v Kilcar on Saturday week. Hopefully he will be back better and stronger than ever for the Minors and Reserves next year.*U16 Ladies*Naomh Colmcille 0-2 CLG BnaG 5-20Well done to our U16 Ladies who had a great win over Naomh Colmcille on Tuesday night. The Ladies will now take on St Eunans next Tuesday yo decide who will go through to the A Quarter Finals as both teams have won all 4 of their games.*U13s*Our U13s had a good win at home to Burt on Sunday thanks to goals from Shane Black, Dara McFadden, Owen O’Donnell and Jake Doherty.
