The 19-year-old has come in for some rough treatment during his breakthrough under Sherwood this year. West Ham brought Alex Song on to combat the teenager, who set up Tom Cleverley’s winner in Villa’s 1-0 victory on Saturday, and Song was booked for chopping him down late on. He has flourished under Sherwood and the boss believes Grealish will be able to take what is thrown at him. He said: “I’ve never seen someone get kicked so much in training. He’s getting a lot of practice. Next week he’s wearing Alastair Cook’s pads. “He almost likes it. No-one likes getting hurt but he loves bodies around him. You give the ball to him in a tight area. That’s something I always work on, trying to create a melee, but he finds a pass out. It allows us to double up down the side. “He’s doing something right. Just continue what you’re doing. He doesn’t roll around on the floor. He’s almost a little bit too honest, maybe it’s the British in him.” Villa can seal survival at Southampton on Saturday as they sit four points above the Barclays Premier League relegation zone with two games left. Grealish has been instrumental in recent weeks with Villa winning three of their last four games and he also starred in their FA Cup semi-final victory over Liverpool last month. And Sherwood reckons the Republic of Ireland Under-21 international has been a game changer because he takes risks. He said: “It’s just the way he is – the way he plays. He’s always been like that ever since I’ve seen him play from 16 years of age in youth teams. He likes to show everyone that he’s a top player. “You don’t really get the credit for it until you do it in front of 39,000 fans. He makes the difference.” Tim Sherwood insists Jack Grealish can handle himself and dismissed any fears the Aston Villa star will get bullied out of games. Press Association
About the authorAnsser SadiqShare the loveHave your say Kane issues Tottenham rallying cry: Enough’s enoughby Ansser Sadiq9 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveHarry Kane has issued a rallying cry to his teammates about the need to win a trophy.Spurs have been impressive in recent seasons, finishing in the top four and challenging the top teams in the league.But they have not won a trophy since the League Cup in 2008 under Juande Ramos.And Kane wants to change that. Spurs are in the Carabao Cup semi finals, with a 1-0 lead over Chelsea after the first leg.”I’ve said all along that the aim of a professional footballer is to win team trophies,” the striker told Sky Sports.”There will be no better feeling than to win something with these guys, we’ve all worked so hard over the last three or four years to turn Spurs into a team that contends each and every year.”We’re in a good stage, we’re in a semi-final [Carabao Cup] with a 1-0 lead, we’re in the FA Cup and Champions League and we’re not too far off in the Premier League, although there is a long way to go.”So far, so good, but it’s this stage of the season that we have just fallen behind in the past so it is important this year that we step it up, work even harder and go into these games and try and bring it home.”
Man Utd boss Solskjaer confident going to Newcastleby Paul Vegas21 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveManchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is optimistic they can win at Newcastle and end their long wait for an away win stretching back to Paris Saint-Germain in March.However, he knows there will be no favours from his former teammate Steve Bruce who is already under pressure after a difficult start at Newcastle.”I do feel it’s going to come,” said the United boss. “There’s no point me talking about it. I’ll get your questions until we do win. If we don’t we’ll get this on Sunday as well.”We are a team that can be set up well to play away from home. Sometimes you can play on the counter. We didn’t really get the counter-attacks as we wanted to (against Alkmaar).”As managers we don’t want to give anyone any favours when we play each other. Brucey’s going to set up a team to win, and I’m going to set up a team to try to win. It’s a great stadium to play at. We’re looking forward to the game, and hopefully we’ve got many players fresh for Sunday.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say
TORONTO – Toys “R” Us Canada sought creditor protection largely due to the financial woes of its U.S. parent company, which filed for bankruptcy, but consumers may still be wary of its Canadian stores due to the hit to the global brand’s reputation, experts say.Retail analyst Bruce Winder says Canadian consumers may hesitate to shop at Toys “R” Us this fall, worrying about whether they will be able to access product warranties or return items in the coming months.“What customers hear is that Toys “R” Us is in bankruptcy protection, or going bankrupt,” said Winder, who is the co-founder and partner of Retail Advisors Network.“They won’t be able to differentiate that Canada or the U.S. is profitable.”Toys “R” Us Canada was granted creditor protection in Ontario Superior Court under the Companies’ Creditors Arrangement Act on Tuesday, one day after Toys “R” Us started bankruptcy proceedings south of the border.The Canadian subsidiary said in court documents filed Tuesday that it is performing well financially, with net earnings doubling and sales revenues increasing at a compounded annual rate of 5 per cent over the last three years.The Canadian arm, operating legally under the name Toys Canada, does not have any obligation to its parent company’s Chapter 11 debtors, it added. However, the bankruptcy proceedings south of the border resulted in a default and termination of the company’s loan facilities — including the main source of financing for Toys “R” Us Canada, the filings said. In turn, the Canadian subsidiary was required to repay the outstanding loans, which it is not in a position to do.“Toys Canada has been cut-off from its primary source of financing during the midst of its inventory build for the holiday season,” it said in the court documents.“Without creditor protection and access to [debtor-in-possession] financing, Toys Canada will lack sufficient liquidity to operate its business in the normal course within approximately two weeks.”Toys “R” Us Canada has now secured interim debtor-in-possession financing from a new group of lenders led by JPMorgan Chase Bank, including a US$200 million term loan and US$300 million revolving credit facility, it said.The Canadian subsidiary says the “breathing room” afforded by the creditor protection and new financing will facilitate continued operation of its 82 stores across Canada, as well as its e-commerce websites, as the company restructures.Melanie Teed-Murch, president of Toys “R” Us and Babies “R” Us Canada, said in a statement on Tuesday that it would continue to honour all gift cards, warranties and returns as normal.“The restructuring is intended to facilitate the continued success of our iconic brands; building a stronger company for our customers, business partners and team members…. We are confident that this process will enable us to leverage Toys “R” Us’ existing strengths to succeed.”The retailer’s Canadian arm was already feeling the pinch from its U.S. parent company’s struggles before initiating proceedings on both sides of the border.Toys “R” Us Canada said in the court filings that a number of its suppliers have recently “sought to reduce their potential exposure” by “requiring deposits, cash on delivery or compressed payment terms.”Winder says vendors may also start to ship reduced amounts to the retailer in a bid to protect themselves, resulting in thinner shelves and further sending a negative signal to customers.Alfonso Nocilla, a law lecturer at the University of Western Ontario, also said the toy chain’s Canadian arm may be impacted by “potential damage to the brand name” as the company goes through the restructuring process.Still, although the toy chain’s U.S. parent company may try to tap assets in Canada to pay off its creditors, it will want to avoid disruption in its Canadian subsidiary, he said.“To the extent that the Canadian operations remain profitable, and that the stores are doing well, practically speaking… they’re going to want to protect that and enhance that.”
FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. — After several weeks of using a temporary fix to fill potholes, crews with the City of Fort St. John will begin using a more permanent fix on the road hazards with the help of a fancy new gadget.The City’s General Manager of Integrated Services Victor Shopland said that crews have been out using cold-mix to fill in potholes around town since the snow started clearing up several weeks ago. However, he said the mixture is only useful when temperatures are still too cold for paving crews to begin working.Shopland said that starting this week, summer crews will be out using ‘hot-mix’ asphalt to more permanently fill in and seal the holes, and will also be using a new pothole patching machine. The City purchased the machine last fall, and will start training on using the device over the next few days. The machine works by heating up the road surface to a temperature where the road surface can be raked up and then smoothed out to repair the road almost seamlessly. Shopland said that for areas that are particularly pothole-ridden, DGS Astro Paving will be contracted out to do hot-in-place paving, recycling the existing asphalt to create a new road surface. He said that areas such as the south end of 86th St, the intersection of 100th and 100th, 102nd St. near 112th Ave., and east of the Medical Clinic are particularly rutted and will need work.Shopland added that crews will also continue the street paving operations that have been occurring since snow last fell in early April.
The event takes place Thursday, February 21st, 7 pmAt the LIDO Theatre, 10156 – 100 Ave FSJThis is a free event and no registration required.A link to the University online presentation CLICK HERE FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – Dr. Roy Rea, Senior Laboratory Instructor at UNBC will be the featured guest presenter for an evening presentation, ‘You Cannot Love Softwoods and Hate Hardwoods.’Those who are interested in learning more about considerations for moose in forest management are invited to attend this presentation and discussion by the Natural Resources & Environmental Studies Institute at UNBC and with their partners.The presentation will take a look at forestry practices and consider the concept of ‘not only how much is taken from the forest yet how much is left behind’ and how this would benefit moose and other animal species.
FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – BC Hydro will be doing their clearing and debris management in various Site C project areas.Merchantable trees of sufficient size, quality and volume that are suitable for harvest will be hauled to local mills.
