Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe backs Southampton striker for England Euro 2016 call

first_imgSouthampton striker Charlie Austin still has “every chance” of forcing his way into England’s Euro 2016 squad, according to Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe.Cherries manager Howe hailed Saints’ £4million January capture of Austin from QPR as “good business”, admitting he still rues failing to sign the former bricklayer back in 2009.Austin hit 18 Premier League goals despite QPR suffering relegation last term, and even edged into Roy Hodgson’s England squad briefly in May 2015.The 26-year-old scored on his Southampton debut in the 1-0 win at Manchester United on January 23, and now long-term admirer Howe has tipped him to fire the goals to prove his England credentials.“I still think he’s young enough for England, and I still think the end of this season could be really important for him,” said Howe, wary of Austin’s influence when Bournemouth host Southampton in Tuesday’s Premier League action.“England aren’t blessed with a huge array of strikers to pick from and I still think he’s got every chance to get to the Euros. So the end of the season’s going to be important for him.“It could possibly turn out to be a timely move. From his perspective he’s got to stay fit and bang some goals in.”Only a transfer embargo denied Howe signing Austin for Bournemouth in League Two following a pre-season trial back in 2009.The natural poacher’s 46 goals in 46 games for neighbours Poole Town the previous campaign had caught Howe’s eye, and the Bournemouth boss later signed Austin in his stint as Burnley manager.Howe revealed one crisp volleyed finish from Austin in Bournemouth training still remains fresh in his memory, some seven years on.“It’s good business for Southampton, they’ve done well,” said Howe.“We were frustrated here many years ago when we tried to sign him and we were embargoed.“But then I was fortunate enough to take him to Burnley. He was outstanding and scored a lot of goals there.“Charlie is someone we admire greatly and he’s a real goalscorer.“So I think he’ll do very well for Saints, supplemented by a very good squad around him and a team that will play to his strengths.“To step through the levels, first of all you’ve got to be good enough, so you’ve got to be technically able.“Now Charlie’s been able to do that, and I think he’s improved and I think he’s had a good step.“He hasn’t done it in one jump, it’s been a gradual process from Poole Town to Swindon to where he is now.“So he’s done it gradually but he seems to have taken every step and every raise in the level in his stride, and that’s been a real factor.“And I think mentally you need to be strong enough to handle the rise, with the rise comes more exposure and more money.“Charlie’s been very level-headed and he’s been able to keep his motivation levels very high.“He just has an ability to score. That was the first thing that struck me.“We did a small-sided game, he’d just come to us from Poole Town on trial, and I remember him hitting this volley into the bottom corner without even blinking.“He was playing against good players who had done really well in League Two.“And immediately you take real notice that this boy’s got something.“From that moment he never changed, he still had the ability to find the net.”Howe will hand Lewis Grabban a late fitness test ahead of hosting Saints on Tuesday, the striker making “good progress” in fighting to beat a groin strain.Howe will make a late decision on whether to start Max Gradel given his phased recovery from long-term knee trouble, while Junior Stanislas should miss out with a hamstring problem. 1 Charlie Austin in action for Southampton against Chelsea last_img read more

Medina – September 14, 2019 Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho might be the perfect player to play for the Gunners, according to former England international Paul Merson.The German World Cup winner, who won the Bundesliga seven times at Bayern, predicted last week that his old club will struggle to break Dortmund’s hold of top spot.“I still believe Dortmund will decide the title race in their own favour. But if anyone can catch up with them, then, of course, it’s Bayern,” said Matthaus.RB Leipzig will finish third with Borussia Monchengladbach, who were one of the surprise packages from the first-half of the campaign, completing the top-four.But Hannover 96 and FC Nürnberg will be relegated with Fortuna Dusseldorf finishing in the relegation play-off spot, which will see them face whoever finishes third in the Bundesliga 2 in a two-legged play-off tie for a place in next season’s top-tier division.Matthaus’ final 2018/19 Bundesliga table after all 34 gamesBorussia Dortmund – 79 pointsBayern Munich – 78 pointsRB Leipzig – 65 pointsBorussia Monchengladbach – 63 pointsTSG Hoffenheim – 56 pointsEintracht Frankfurt – 55 pointsBayer Leverkusen – 54 pointsVfL Wolfsburg – 46 pointsWerder Bremen – 44 pointsHertha BSC – 43 pointsSchalke 04 – 40 pointsMainz 05 – 35 pointsSC Freiburg – 35 pointsVfB Stuttgart – 33 pointsFC Augsburg – 31 pointsFortuna Düsseldorf – 30 pointsHannover 96 – 26 pointsFC Nurnberg – 22 pointslast_img read more

Couple who leased San Ysidro storefront to illegal dispensary ordered to pay

first_img Categories: California News, Local San Diego News FacebookTwitter KUSI Newsroom Couple who leased San Ysidro storefront to illegal dispensary ordered to pay $388,000 SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – A judge today ordered a Riverside County couple who leased a San Ysidro storefront to an illegal marijuana dispensary to pay $388,000 in civil penalties to the city of San Diego.The judgment against Quirino and Bertha Gutierrez of Menifee equates to $1,000 a day for each of the 388 days the dispensary operated illegally. It brings to $7,862,353 the civil judgments obtained by the City Attorney’s Office against landlords and operators of illegal dispensaries.“Landlords of illegal dispensaries are no less culpable than their tenants, and we prosecute them with equal vigor,” City Attorney Mara Elliott said. “If you are leasing your property to an unpermitted pot shop, we will hold you accountable to the fullest extent of the law.” The defendants’ property at 154 West San Ysidro Blvd. is located in a zone where a marijuana dispensary could be permitted, but the defendants never obtained a permit from the city.In October 2015, the city investigated a prior marijuana dispensary operating at the property. The operators of the dispensary closed it by the end of November 2015. In August 2016, the court entered a default judgment against the Gutierrezes, imposing $12,399 in penalties and costs and a permanent injunction prohibiting them from leasing their property to any marijuana-related business without permits.In March 2016, the city learned that the “Luxury Care Healing Center” was operating at the property and advertising marijuana products on the Internet. The current lawsuit was filed in May and the court issued a temporary restraining order against the Gutierrezes in September.The dispensary continued to operate in violation of the court’s orders until the San Diego Police Department raided it on Feb. 22, 2017, and impounded about 10 pounds of marijuana, $3,484 in cash, 100 edible marijuana products and 150 concentrated products.The court entered a $425,000 default judgment against the Gutierrezes but set it aside after their former attorney, Ron Rockwell, admitted fault in failing to answer the complaint.Earlier this month, San Diego Superior Court Judge Randa Trapp granted the city’s motion for summary judgment against the defendants. The final judgment includes a permanent injunction, prohibiting the Gutierrezes from operating or maintaining a marijuana dispensary or any other marijuana-related business without a conditional use permit.The judge also signed a default judgment against the dispensary operator, Ziad Putrus, ordering him to pay $100,000 in civil penalties and prohibiting him from operating or maintaining a marijuana dispensary or other marijuana-related business in the city of San Diego without a conditional use permit.

Shatrughan Sinha on not being invited to Abhi–Ash wedding Jab bulaya nahi

first_imgOnce thick friends, Shatrughan Sinha and Amitabh Bachchan don’t share a warm, cordial vibe anymore. The presence of Jaya Bachchan and Shatrughan Sinha as rivals in the political sphere and the Bachchan family’s decision to not invite Shatrughan and family to the grand wedding of Abhishek Bachchan with Aishwarya Rai could be the two biggest reasons.The Bachchans apparently had sent a packet of sweets to all those they couldn’t invite to the wedding. Abhishek Bachchan had said that the decision to keep it a private and intimate affair was made because of his ailing grandmother who was in the hospital.However, Shatrughan Sinha sent back the sweets and was quite vocal about his displeasure. Since Sinha considered Amitabh as his close friend, this seemed like an insult to him. Sinha had told Mid-day, “Jab bulaaya nahin phir mithai kis baat ki? Amitabh had said those who had not been invited were not his friends in the first place. I won’t be put in second place and embarrass him by accepting the sweets.”Without mincing his words, Shatru had lashed out at the Bachchans saying, “The least I expected was that either Amitabh or someone from the family would call me up before sending the sweets. When that was not done, why the mithai?”Talking about who all were not invited, an infuriated Shotgun had said, “Hema Malini was not invited, neither were Dharmendra and Ramesh Sippy. Half of the industry that has stood by the Bachchans through thick and thin. All of us are currently in second place as Amitabh is being guided by a misguided missile called Amar Singh.”According to a Pinkvilla report, Amitabh Bachchan had later said that those who couldn’t understand their situation and why they were not invited to the wedding, weren’t his friends in the first place.Abhishek Bachchan on Koffee with Karan had said that he didn’t feel angry or surprised by Shatrughan Sinha returning the sweets as he was entitled to his opinions and if he didn’t want to keep it, he had a valid reason for it.last_img read more
