West Ham close to survival after vital win over Watford

first_imgDavid Moyes urged West Ham to finish the job after they effectively sealed their Premier League survival with a first half goal-blitz in Friday’s 3-1 win over relegation rivals Watford. Moyes’ side ran riot before the break at the London Stadium thanks to goals from Michail Antonio, Tomas Soucek and Declan Rice. Troy Deeney got one back for Watford after the interval, but the visitors couldn’t muster an unlikely escape act. West Ham climbed to 15th place and sit six points clear of the relegation zone with just two games left. Holding a vastly superior goal difference to third bottom Bournemouth and second bottom Aston Villa, the Hammers should be safe from the drop. After their second successive win, West Ham need one more point to guarantee their survival. If other results make them do it themselves, Moyes is confident his players will be up to the task against Manchester United and Aston Villa. “We are in a good position. Teams still have that chance and we have to do the job,” Moyes said. “Even scoring the goals has helped, I wanted us to keep our goal difference as good as it could be. “We have 37 points with a couple of games to go. If we get 40 points we’ll have done it off our own back.” Fourth bottom Watford are just three points above the relegation zone and face a nerve-wracking finish to the season.

I’d expect better from our players,” Pearson said. “I’ll look at it again and players will get honest feedback. They will go home tonight and think ‘wow we’ve let that one drift past us’. “It wasn’t good enough. We know that we have the toughest run-in but we have to cope with it.” – In-form Antonio – Antonio had scored four times in West Ham’s rout of Norwich last weekend and the forward was too hot for Watford to handle as well. West Ham took the lead in the sixth minute when Pablo Fornals played in Antonio and he fired past Ben Foster for his seventh goal since the coronavirus hiatus. Less than five minutes later, Watford’s task was made harder when Soucek headed home from Jarrod Bowen’s cross. England midfielder Rice produced a superb 30-yard strike to put West Ham three up in the 36th minute. Watford striker Deeney reduced the deficit in the 49th minute, tapping in after Abdoulaye Doucoure’s shot rebounded off a post. But Deeney was forced off with an injury and Watford couldn’t fight back without their captain.last_img read more

Mixup at U.S. Bureau of Prisons over Identity of Dr. Malachi York and Son,…

first_imgDr. Malachi Z. YorkFollowing Dr. Malachi Z. York’s over 16 years of imprisonment already served in the United States of America, this newspaper has established, through a reliable research, that the name Dwight York, which has been accorded Dr. York by both the Middle District Court of Georgia and the Bureau of Prisons (BOP), is not his name but that of one of his sons, Dwight Totten York.The question that lingers further in this finding, is whether Dr. York was aware that both the court and the BOP actually recorded the name that belongs to his son as his name when they proceeded with their activities involving him.According to the United States Pre-Sentencing Investigation report, which consists of paperwork that the judge used to help determine the right way to punish a defendant, as was filed against Dr. York on April 1, 2003, it has Dwight York, who is said to have been born in Boston, Massachusetts, on June 26, 1945.Contrary to this information, however, the Daily Observer has in its possession a Certificate of Vital Records from The Commonwealth of Massachusetts State Department of Public Health, where Dr. Malachi Z. York is said to have been born.The record states:  “A search has been made of the records in this office for the birth of Dwight York, throughout the records of the Commonwealth for the years 1941-1950, and that said record has not been found.”According to Dr. York’s son, Dwight Totten York, he stated in an affidavit that the mix-up on the issues of identity and status began in the early 1990s when Dr. York purchased land in Eatonton, Georgia, on which development began and where Dr. York came to serve his Consulate Post for Liberia.In an affidavit written by Dwight Totten York under oath on April 9, 2009, he said: “I, Dwight Totten, A.K.A. Dwight T. York, attest to the fact that I did sign documents for my father Malachi York in the name of Dwight York within Putnam County, Georgia, for permits and deed recordings which is the reason some documents say my name Dwight York and some names say Malachi York and some say both.” He added, “in conclusion, I am Dwight T. York, and my father is Malachi York. I went into town to apply for and sign paperwork in order to obtain various permits for the structures that once existed on the 404 Shadydale Rd. property.”There seems to be much conflicting information on the World Wide Web when it comes to who is Dr. York, or who is Dwight York, as previously reported by the Daily Observer. Wikipedia, for example, shows that Dr. York is a convicted “child molester” and “rapist”, which is not stated on his judgement signed by the presiding judge for the Middle District Court of Georgia, Judge C. Ashley Royal.On the Internet, it is reported that Dr. York was convicted in the biggest child molestation case in the United States, but after thorough perusal of his judgement, as previously reported, it came to be known that Dr. York’s actual charges were: Conspiracy to Transport Minors in Interstate Commerce for Unlawful Sexual Activity; Conspiracy to Travel in Interstate Commerce for Unlawful Sexual Activity With Minors; and Conspiracy to Structure Cash Transactions to Evade Currency Transactions Reporting Requirements.Since Dr. York’s incarceration, there has been a plethora of recantations that seemed to have gone unreported by many of the news sources that earlier covered the case.The Daily Observer has in its possession affidavits of recantation of four alleged victims, witnesses who initially testified against Dr. York but later, in affidavit and under oath, made changes to their statements. Ebony Hill, who according to the United States Middle District Court transcripts, initially testified against Dr. York on the 13th of January, 2004, in her affidavit in which she testified in front of Notary Public Colisha A. Butler on April 27th, 2009, stated the following in her recantation:“The reasons I testified untruthfully against Mr. York at trial is because the law enforcement agents threatened me by saying that I abandoned my son. I was also afraid of going to jail because the FBI said that my name was involved in some very serious things. I was so scared of losing my child and intimidated by the FBI. I just went along with their story of Malachi York being a child molester.”With efforts exerted by the Garlawolu Law Firm, Dr. York’s naturalization records, which accorded him Liberian citizenship, were found at Criminal Court “B” in Monrovia. With this development, the Liberian Government is now expected to prove to the U.S. Government that Dr. York is not a U.S. citizen any longer and should be granted freedom from imprisonment and subsequent repatriation to Liberia.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Henry suffers defeat on Monaco return, PSG seal perfect 10

first_imgMonaco, who were runners-up to PSG last season, are now 24 points adrift of the reigning champions after they cruised to a 5-0 thrashing of Amiens at the Parc des Princes despite resting several key players.A dreadful error by Monaco’s third-choice goalkeeper Seydou Sy gifted Strasbourg midfielder Adrien Thomasson an early opener, and substitute Samuel Grandsir was sent off midway through the second half.Lebo Mothiba doubled the advantage, and a late Youri Tielemans penalty was a mere consolation for the 2017 Ligue 1 title-winners.“It wasn’t easy, we tried to put something in place which worked at the beginning, and then we conceded that goal that I don’t need to describe… Human error, I don’t want to wipe the floor with anyone,” said the 41-year-old Henry.“Then we tried to change the game, and unfortunately Sam (Grandsir) is sent off. After that it was even harder, but we still tried to keep playing.“But I want to keep positive despite the negatives… The game could have turned in our favour, but it didn’t. In addition, we lost (Radamel) Falcao at the beginning. It wasn’t the dream scenario.”– Miserable bow for Henry –Henry — a World Cup winner and Arsenal’s all-time record goalscorer who started his playing career at Monaco — made four changes to the team which lost to Rennes before the international break, with former Manchester City and Inter Milan striker Stevan Jovetic restored up front.But his new side got off to the worst possible start as they handed Strasbourg a 17th-minute lead.Kenny Lala’s long ball forward was nodded hopefully towards goal by Thomasson, but Senegalese ‘keeper Sy — who was only playing due to injures to Diego Benaglio and Danijel Subasic — comically fumbled the ball over his own line.A disappointing first half ended poorly for Henry and Monaco, as captain and star striker Radamel Falcao was forced off injured.It was proving a miserable debut for Henry, as just two minutes after being brought on as a substitute, Grandsir was given a straight red card for catching Anthony Goncalves in the hip with a high boot, with the Strasbourg winger collapsing to the ground holding his face.As the visitors pushed for an equaliser, they were hit on the counter-attack in the 84th minute as South African international Mothiba raced clear before a cute lob gave him his seventh goal of the season for club and country.Tielemans pulled one back with an injury-time spot-kick after Moussa Sylla was brought down in the area, but it proved too little, too late.– PSG make it 10/10 –Mbappe scored his fifth goal in two games as PSG romped to a 5-0 thrashing © AFP / FRANCK FIFEParis Saint-Germain continued the blistering start to their Ligue 1 title defence as Kylian Mbappe scored again earlier on Saturday.Coach Thomas Tuchel left key men Neymar, Thiago Silva and Thomas Meunier out of the squad altogether at the Parc des Princes with Wednesday’s Champions League clash with Napoli in mind, but PSG had more than enough to see off Amiens.“Everyone thinks that Ligue 1 might be too easy to prepare for the Champions League, but it’s not like that,” insisted Tuchel, who took over the reins from Unai Emery in the close-season.“That would mean you’re blaming the other teams, but we focus on ourselves. Nobody won 10 games in a row, and we did it.”Brazilian centre-back Marquinhos nodded the hosts into a 12th-minute lead and Adrien Rabiot made it two shortly before half-time.Germany winger Julian Draxler grabbed the third headed goal of the game, and the 19-year-old Mbappe fired in late on to score his ninth goal in just six league outings this season.Moussa Diaby came off the bench to complete the rout as the capital-city giants maintained their eight-point lead over Lille at the top of the table.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Thierry Henry endured a miserable first match as a head coach © AFP / Frederick FLORINPARIS, France, Oct 20 – A “positive” Thierry Henry suffered defeat in his first match as a head coach when his 10-man Monaco side slumped to a 2-1 loss at Strasbourg on Saturday to drop into the Ligue 1 relegation zone, while Paris Saint-Germain eased to a 10th straight victory to start their title defence.The principality club have failed to win in 11 games in all competitions since the opening weekend of the French top-flight season, and are only above bottom team Guingamp on goal difference.last_img read more
