He was 17 when he made his competitive first-team debut. Titles accumulated at an unprecedented rate: four in the Champions League, nine in La Liga and six in the Copa del Rey. Adulation at Camp Nou turned into worship; media called him “La Pugla (The Flea)” for his small frame and unparalleled acceleration, and Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger equated Messi’s moves with a video-game creation, proclaiming he was “like a PlayStation.”ADVERTISEMENT Volcano watch: Island fissures steaming, lake water receding Cloudy skies over Luzon due to amihan In fight vs corruption, Duterte now points to Ayala, MVP companies as ‘big fish’ LATEST STORIES Trending Articles PLAY LIST 00:50Trending Articles00:50Trending Articles00:50Trending Articles02:14Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard02:56NCRPO pledges to donate P3.5 million to victims of Taal eruption00:56Heavy rain brings some relief in Australia02:37Calm moments allow Taal folks some respite03:23Negosyo sa Tagaytay City, bagsak sa pag-aalboroto ng Bulkang Taal01:13Christian Standhardinger wins PBA Best Player award LeBron returns to LA to plot next move as free agency nears MOST READ Christopher Tolkien, son of Lord of the Rings author, dies aged 95 View comments Saturday will likely mark the end of an era for the World Cup, a decade in which much of the hype and pre-tournament talk has been about the best players in the world, the Spanish league rivals who have evenly split the last 10 FIFA Player of the Year Awards.

(AP Photo/Thanassis Stavrakis)MOSCOW — Lionel Messi stared, hands on hips, pain etched across a face once boyish and filled with limitless joy, now obscured by a brown beard and hardened by expectations for his nation unmet.Four hours later and 950 miles (1,530 kilometers) away, Cristiano Ronaldo’s eyes were wide in anger as he shouted in protest just ahead of the final whistle, once again arguing with a referee. The tirade got Ronaldo a second yellow card that would have suspended him for the next match. No worries, Portugal’s World Cup ended with a loss.ADVERTISEMENT He scored at a rate once unfathomable: 383 goals in 418 league matches, 100 in 125 Champions League games and 552 in 637 first-team appearances overall. He was a lifer for one of the most popular clubs in the world, a brand of his own, earning love in Spain but detachment from his countrymen in South America. Too often, his World Cup failures were compared to Maradona’s successes.Ronaldo, too, debuted at 17, for Sporting Lisbon. His crossover dribble was already famous when Alex Ferguson snatched him for Manchester United ahead of the 2003-04 season and gave him the No. 7 of just-departed David Beckham. After six seasons that included three Premier League titles, one Champions League and one FA Cup, he moved to Real Madrid and scored 450 goals in 438 matches, winning four Champions League titles, and the league and cup twice each. He’s set a Champions League record with 120 goals, leaving Messi a distant second.They were soccer’s yin and yang, Messi understated and distant, Ronaldo flamboyant with a model girlfriend and attention-grabbing hairdos. They are global spokesmen, Ronaldo for Nike, Toyota and many more; Messi for the likes of Adidas and Pepsi.Ronaldo grew a goatee for this World Cup. He said it was because of a bet with Portugal teammate Ricardo Quaresma, but it coincided with the release of a commercial of Messi with a real goat — as in “Greatest of All Time.”They have entertained, becoming household names in continents far afield, royalty of the internet age when satellites beamed their twice-a-week matches to homes, bars and laptops in ways Pele, Maradona and predecessors couldn’t envisage.But now their time at the top has come to an end. Mbappe, just 19, and others in the next generation are ready for leading roles. It is too soon to proclaim which will emerge to become the best.

Who’s Next?

first_imgThe Daily Observer has reliably learned of an impending reshuffle in government. Welcome news – some things needed to change. Underperformance has been an understatement to be frank. Should this be the case, perhaps NOW the President is serious. Perhaps now she is ready to change course, heading due north.The question, however, becomes: Who’s next? We hope that this will not be just another dos si dos. How does the President now plan to vet candidates for such all-important positions? This is a great opportunity for a fresh start, even at this late hour in the game.To be fair, some of the seemingly best candidates for these high-level positions have been woefully disappointing. Highly credentialed and experienced candidates have turned out to be either corrupt, ineffective, or both. The leadership and integrity components have been sorely missing in this country.Some of these people walked by line in places such as the United States and other Western countries where they worked for many years because they knew that one false move, and they were gone. Those nations have systems in which engineers and such come a dime a dozen, and in which people of color are often underdogs anyway. So our people adhered to the highest standards of ethics and professionalism. Upon returning home, however, to such high positions, they become arrogant and their true colors come out.Others are what we call ‘techies’. They can crunch numbers all day long. But leadership ability is nowhere to be found in their DNA. It is simply too overwhelming to ask them to lead an entire ministry. They are good followers, but not leaders. Others still are good managers, but still not leaders; and there is a difference.Managers serve under leaders. They maintain the status quo and follow orders. They do as they are told. They may suggest changes to leadership, but must be authorized to implement them.Leaders, on the other hand, are free to create new systems where old ones become ineffective and obsolete. They think outside of the box. That requires courage and confidence to make the changes necessary without fear or favor. They are not afraid to hurt feelings or step on a few toes, although that may not always be necessary, and battles must be carefully chosen. Leaders are not beholden to old buddies or family. They are patriots who put country first. Leaders do not drop the ball or pass the buck. They relish the opportunity to take the ball and RUN with it to the finish.The difference here in terms of cabinet positions is that cabinet ministers must be able to juggle both leadership and management. One the one hand, they serve at the will and pleasure of the President. They are managers under her administration. On the other hand, however, they sit at the helm of entire ministries. That makes them leaders. As such, good management is a sub-set of leadership.So these are some of the intricacies that need to be decoded in vetting candidates for positions of trust and leadership.Insanity has often been defined as doing the same thing over and over the same way and expecting different results. It is now time to reexamine the metrics we use to vet candidates for positions of trust in government. It is even possible that the vetters are part of the problem. Are people paying top dollar to be shortlisted as possible replacements? Are those who have the President’s ear taking undue advantage of her trust?Even if the news turns out not to be accurate, the rumor will have been worth having this conversation.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

PPP accuses Govt of frustrating work of NDCs

first_imgGeneral Secretary of the People’s Progressive Party/Civic (PPP/C) Clement Rohee has lambasted the David Granger led-Administration and it’s Communities Ministry for financially stifling Neighbourhood Democratic Councils (NDCs) across the country.At the Party’s weekly press briefing on Tuesday, Rohee accused Communities Minister Ronald Bulkan of withholding his approval for the release of budgeted monies to NDCs controlled by the PPP/C.PPP General Secretary Clement Rohee“The withholding of ministerial approval for budgets submitted by the NDCs is a blatant manifestation of the arrogant and spiteful behaviour of the Minister to punish the people in those NDCs controlled by the PPP/C.The NDCs are being financially stifled by APNU/AFC [A Partnership for National Unity/Alliance For Change] coalition Administration, thus preventing them from executing their functions in the interest of the people, who elected the Council members to administer the affairs of their respected local authority areas,” he remarked.According to the PPP General Secretary, this new “studied policy” of the Administration has resulted in residents being affected by non-functioning NDCs. He added that cleaning of trenches and canals, works to be done on internal roads, environmental sanitation, maintenance issues and other civil works are badly needed in these communities.Rohee argued too that these residents would have voted for their elected representatives to improve their environmental and infrastructural surroundings, as promised in the campaign trails leading up to the Local Government Elections, which was held in March.He pointed out that some three months after those elections, the political rhetoric emanated from the coalition about the importance of democratic governance, seems to have turned out to be meaningless and self-fulfilling prophecies.“It has now become obvious to all that the Granger-Administration has now embarked on a studied policy of frustrating the activities of the PPP/C controlled NDCs and the APNU so-called democratic renewal of the lives of the newly elected Councils, have been made a mockery by withholding ministerial approval for spending monies already in possession of the NDCs,” he remarked.Rohee went on to say that the NDCs will never be able to “work for the good of their communities,” words spouted by the APNU/AFC, which continues to pursue policies to the contrary, effectively blocking the development of these communities.All the 48 PPP/C-controlled NDCs across the country are yet to receive their budgeted subventions, Rohee said, while warning that with the money being held up, the works to be done are becoming greater and so by the end of it, when the funds are finally release to the NDCs, then it would be inadequate because they allowed the works to mount.Asked whether NDCs would have to submit audited statements for past years, the General Secretary said he was unaware of such a requirement, noting that there needs to be clear instructions from the subject Minister.“I need to see these things in writing from the Minister… I don’t recall any of our newly elected or re-elected Councillors having any documents asking for such reports to be submitted. It is legally wrong for you to be holding up monies that are already in the hands of these NDCs for works to be done in these NDCs on the spurious claim that they need to submit (such documents),” he stated.Moreover, the PPP General Secretary was asked whether this situation was isolated to only PPP/C controlled NDCs or all. However, Rohee could not say. He explained the Councillors in the NDCs controlled by his party would have complained about the situation and have not had any such reports from the others.“We have been paying attention to NDCs where PPP Councillors are in majority… we have a vested interest in ensuring that what was promised to those people are given and therefore we are giving the necessary backing to our NDC Councillors to press for this,” he remarked.last_img read more

New H/Rights Org. Launched

first_imgThe newly formed Independent Human rights Investigators (IHRI) was officially launched over the weekend in Monrovia.The IHRI is launched with the aim to bring human rights offenders to justice; to hold abusers accountable with the right action; and to expose human rights records, which is key to attaining lasting peace.ActionAid-Liberia Country Director, Korto Williams, who performed the launch, called on members of the IHRI to remain focused to work in line with their mandates.She recorded, among other things, how during the past, state powers were abused through various means because the voices of Liberians suffered from repressive regimes that were defiant and perpetrators of heinous crimes. IHRI Founding National Director, Adama Kiatamba Dempster, said the launch will set the path in order to break the long silence of the unspoken truth, the culture of impunity, the promotion of human wrongs rather than the promotion of human rights. Mr. Dempster is also a lead investigator. He believes that for too long, the human rights community has gone into silence, thereby leaving the plight of the Liberian people unchecked and unprotected. He said the human rights community has remained cold lipped and silent, which has created a platform for the lives of Liberians to remain as ‘any other business’ (AOB).“The act of remaining cold lipped and silent has led past atrocities-abuses and violations of human rights to go unpunished and unaddressed,” Mr. Dempster argued.The IHRI is founded by Liberians, some of them university graduates, others from United Nations and internationally trained in basic human rights standards, transitional justice, legal service, security insights, research work, analyzing conflict situations, advocacy, campaigners for the rule of law and justice promotion and the common man.The institution, Mr. Dempster said, has its strength in investigations, monitoring, legal service, security insight, training, advocacy, campaign and reporting. It was founded with the mandates to advance the protection and promotion of human rights for all; to conduct inquiries or investigate past and on-ongoing human rights abuses and or violations among other basic rights-related issues. The launching ceremony brought together representatives of civil society actors as well as others from the Human Right Department of the Ministry of Justice, led by Kutaka D. Togba, Acting Coordinator.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Man United have NOT decided against Falcao deal – yet!

first_imgManchester United have NOT yet made a decision on Radamel Falcao’s future, talkSPORT understands.The Colombian striker has failed to live up to expectations since his arrival on a season-long loan from Monaco last summer.Falcao, 29, regarded as one the most feared strikers in world football just a few seasons ago, has scored just four goals in 16 appearances for the Red Devils.His disappointing form has led to claims that United have already informed Monaco that they will not take up their £43m option to buy the ex-Atletico Madrid forward in the summer.However, Old Trafford insiders have told talkSPORT that no decision has been made on whether to sign Falcao permanently, and Louis van Gaal will rule on the player’s future at the end of the season.

Picture by North-West Newspix.Ollie Horgan has secured another FOUR players from last season’s promotion-winning squad.Michael Funston, Raymond Foy, Tommy McMonagle and Ciaran Gallagher all put pen to paper for the forthcoming season.Gallagher enjoyed a sensational season last term – following his return to Finn Park after a brief spell at Derry City – and kept 18 clean sheets as Harps gained promotion back to the Premier Division. Raymond Foy was voted the club’s Player of the Year a few weeks back – and Horgan was keen to tie him down.Experienced campaigner Michael Funston signs on for another season at Finn Park, and his nous and versatility will be vital for Harps next season.Tommy McMonagle is a quality defender, who can play left-back or centre-half, and while he didn’t feature in the play-off run-in – he was a massive player for Horgan last season and will be again in the Premier Division.Gareth Harkin, Kevin McHugh, Ryan McConnell, Ciaran Coll and Tony McNamee committed their futures to the club last season. Horgan will now look to tie down Keith Cowan, Packie Mailey and Damien McNulty before perhaps looking further afield to add more quality to his squad. HARPS SECURE FOUR MORE SIGNINGS AHEAD OF RETURN BACK TO TOP-FLIGHT was last modified: December 4th, 2015 by Mark ForkerShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:newsSportlast_img read more
