Crunch time approaching for Pardew

first_img But he acknowledged that irrespective of Cabaye’s situation it is essential for the club to bring in new faces to add to their solitary summer signing Loic Remy before the transfer window shuts early next month. Pardew said: “We know we’ve got some business to do and the next nine days are very important to this football club. I’m still fighting and I’m determined to make a success of this season for our fans.” Pardew would not elaborate on Cabaye’s absence but did hint at his imminent departure when he said: “We need to get ourselves in a situation where if he stays, great, and if he doesn’t we need to get someone equally as good.” Pardew watched his side fail to muster a single shot on target on a dreary afternoon at St James’ Park, but almost saw them snatch victory when substitute Sammy Ameobi hit a cross against the inside of the post in injury time. With Hammers keeper Jussi Jaaskelainen stranded, the ball bounced down to a surprised Yoan Gouffran who somehow conspired to scoop the rebound over the bar when it would have been easier to score. Other than Ameobi’s late effort Newcastle’s best chances were a couple of off-target free-kicks by Hatem Ben Arfa, who has impressed Pardew in the way he has bounced back from last season’s nagging injury issues. “One thing Hatem showed today and against Manchester City is his hamstring is fine and he’s still got that burst of pace,” said Pardew. “I was pleased with his commitment, and that bodes well for us.” Newcastle boss Alan Pardew knows he is heading into one of the most crucial periods of his three years in charge of the Magpies after enduring more frustration in Saturday’s goalless Barclays Premier League draw with West Ham. Yohan Cabaye was once again left out of Pardew’s matchday squad and his future on Tyneside looks increasingly bleak with Pardew indicating the club must step up their search for a replacement. Pardew did not comment on reports Cabaye had refused to play since Arsenal lodged an initial £10million bid last Monday, with both the Gunners and Paris St Germain expected to table improved offers next week. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Region 7 hit by another violent storm

first_img…no school reopening today in Kako VillageIn less than one month, at least three villages in Region Seven (Cuyuni-Mazaruni) have been devastated by violent storms, leaving residents to pick up the pieces and restart life. Late on Saturday afternoon, a violent storm wreaked havoc in Kako Village. Although there has been no loss of life, residents have to now pick up the pieces and start reconstructing their damaged homes.According to Regional Chairman Gordon Bradford, no one was seriously injured. He said that a team from the Regional Democratic Council’s Emergency Preparedness Committee has been dispatched to the village and has reported that some six houses were totally destroyed, six other buildings suffered major damage and the school in the area was also damaged.“Because of the damage to the school, there would be no school reopening tomorrow (Monday) and the Regional Administration would be there to begin repairs to the school soon,” Bradford informed Guyana Times.Flashback: The house that collapsed on Marsha Jordan and killed her during a storm last monthHe added that the team reported that residents indicated that for the past five days they have been experiencing heavy thunder coupled with lightning and precipitation. He said that this would begin in the afternoon hours around 15:00h.“The parents are fearful of sending their children to school, especially those that have to use boats, because of the storm. They are saying that the children should remain home, because it would be too bad if they get caught in a storm on the river,” he said.Bradford said that the Civil Defence Commission has been informed and was on standby to provide assistance if needed. He added that Kamarang, also in Region Seven, was affected, but because of its remote location, the details of the damage there are yet to be reported.The Regional Chairman said interior locations would experience frequent storms during the hurricane season and noted that the residents were already looking at the possibility of constructing storm-resistant homes. He said that a storm-resistant home would be built to house the family of Marsha Jordan, who was killed when a house collapsed on her last month during a violent storm.Jordan was seven months pregnant at the time. She was the mother of two girls aged 3 and 11. Around 16:00h on Friday, August 19, heavy winds, lightning and thunder wreaked havoc on the Amerindian village of Jawalla, damaging several houses in the process. Jordan and her two daughters were sheltering under a house when it collapsed on them, immediately killing her.last_img read more
