Everybody has tried to stop Messi in many ways but the great footballers have manners in which they can get out of any trap that gets set against them.”“Barcelona has already lost some matches with Messi. We are going to have to compete very well. The ideal thing would be to get a positive result and not let them score any goals, but leaving a clean sheet against Barcelona is very complicated.”“In order to give the surprising result, we’ll have to win by a margin that doesn’t require us to win by more than one goal in the return leg.”FC Barcelona, Valencia CFMatch Preview: Barcelona vs Valencia Boro Tanchev – September 14, 2019 Is derby time in La Liga, as Barcelona welcomes Valencia to the Camp Nou Stadium tonight at 21:00 (CET).“I insist, Barcelona also doesn’t like to have Sevilla as their rival for this match.

Wenger questions Ozils commitment

first_imgFormer Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger feels Mesut Ozil’s long-term contract may have pushed the star into his “comfort zone”.Wenger was still the Gunners boss when Ozil penned down a new contract that would run out in the summer of 2021.However, the former Madrid man has endured a difficult spell under Unai Emery with the Spaniard appearing not to be a big fan of his style of play.Wenger on Ozil’s huge contract: “He has a contract but the problem is that if you want to buy a player like him you have to spend £100m. So the decision you have to make is whether you re-sign the player who costs us nothing, or do we have the money to buy a new player?” #Arsenal— Gurjit (@GurjitAFC) February 19, 2019Ozil has started just one game for the Gunners since Boxing Day, leading to yet more speculation about whether he will stay at the Emirates beyond the end of this campaign.“I feel that the length of the contract has nothing to do normally with the selection of the team. But sometimes there are special cases,” Wenger told Sky.Top 5 Premier League players to watch for next weekend Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – September 11, 2019 With the international activity cooling down for the next month, we go back to the Premier League’s Top 5 players to watch this weekend.After…“Most of the time now we think when we sign a player for five years we have a good player for five years. But that doesn’t necessarily mean that they practice, they play their best. Because they might be in their comfort zone.“He has a contract but the problem is that if you want to buy a player like him you have to spend £100m.“And to maintain the value of the player, beyond the Ozil case, it is more about the way football is structured.Wenger reveals why it was important to give Ozil a bumper deal— ARSENAL TRUE FANS (@arsenal_true) February 19, 2019“To buy players of top, top quality you need £100m. So the decision you have to make is whether you re-sign the player, who costs us nothing, or do we have the money to buy a new player?”Wenger was speaking after being honoured with the Lifetime Achievement Award at the Laureus World Sports Awards.last_img read more

Financial management laws good financial systems questionable for TCI

first_img Related Items:anand heeraman, audit general, financial system, tci audit committee Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, 02 Feb 2016 – Although the Turks and Caicos is performing well financially, the released Auditor General’s report for 2014-2015 exposed that good laws need to be supported now by good systems. A battery of documents were made public during House of Assembly debate in December and Magnetic Media can report that the auditor, Anand Heeraman, found some of the accounting favorable, but cited – in the main – that issues with the last financial audit of government spending were repeated. In the conclusion of the audit, Heeraman says the way things are currently set up, it is impossible for the country to get a true sense of where the government is as a whole fiscally and if the country is getting true value for money in whatever spending is taking place. The Auditor said and I quote, “…there still remains a gap between the intention of the finance laws and their implementation…” Heeraman also said, “Some of these weaknesses identified by the TCI Audit Committee included absence of a risk management process, inadequate asset and liability management, no controls in place to ensure the reliability of financial information being reported, absence of documented policies and procedures to guide the operations, inadequate filing and storage of financial records and transaction documents, absence of supervisory review and management approval for transactions, inadequate documentation and inaccurate recording of inventory items and no systems in place to ensure compliance with applicable Ordinances and Regulations.”The risk of stealing is high, the instance of wrong reporting is high and regular and accountability within TCIG is sorely lacking. Of the four final opinions the Auditor General is required to give, only one was qualified or satisfactory; the other three were adverse or non-satisfactory.last_img read more

DPM says closure of BAMSI and Urban Renewal will not be rash

first_img#MagneticMediaNews#DPMSaysNoRashDecisionsOnBAMSIandUrbanRenewalDefendsIncreasedAllocations.#BAMSI#UrbanRenewal#BahamasBudget20172018 Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppBahamas, June 12th 2017: From being audited, to an increase in funds, both BAMSI, The Bahamas Agriculture and Marine Science Institute, and Urban Renewal will receive additional funds for their operations despite claims of corruption at the two agencies. Fresh from their massive win at the polls, the FNM vowed to commence audits into both companies, but now comes a change of tune, with increased budget allocations having been made to both entities in the new fiscal year.Allegations of incomplete works done under Urban Renewal’s Small Home Repairs, SHR programme, came to the Auditor General’s attention, while the Public Accounts Committee described it as public wastage. As for BAMSI, fire at one of the dorms sparked public attention, when it was revealed the contractor responsible for it, did not have insurance despite stating otherwise.However, DPM and Finance Minister Peter Turnquest is saying any decision to be made to close both companies, must be sound and be done based on facts and not emotions. He says there are people involved in both organisations and describes it as a human business and it would be unfair to the people involved. Minister Turnquest citing, jobs and contractors owed monies, says it was not as simple as “turning off the spigot”Government outlined in its budget that $5M will be allocated toward Urban Renewal in the new fiscal year 2017/2018, while the former administration had put aside $1.79M in its 2015/2016 budget. Some $8M has been put aside for BAMSI under this fiscal year, a $600,000 increase from the previous budget. Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppcenter_img Related Items:last_img read more
