Blackpool chairman apologises for offensive messages to supporter

first_img1 Blackpool chairman apologises for offensive messages to supporter Blackpool chairman Karl Oyston has issued a statement of apology for a series of abusive messages he sent to a supporter.Oyston has faced a backlash over the last 36 hours after a full sequence of texts he sent to a fan, named as Stephen Smith, were published by the Tangerine Knights supporters’ group.He became embroiled in a furious row with Smith, branding him “a retard” and telling him to ”enjoy the rest of your special needs day out”.Oyston is also reported to have told Smith to “f*** off back under whatever rock you reside under”.After being criticised by Blackpool fans and a number of organisations, Oyston responded by issuing an apology on the Blackpool website on Monday afternoon.It read: “I would like to unreservedly apologise for any offence or distress caused by my text responses reported in the media recently.A number of supporters have been involved in protests against the ownership of the Championship club, who are bottom of the league and were thumped 6-1 at home by Bournemouth on Saturday.Oyston revealed he had received a number of abusive messages in recent weeks after his phone number was published online, though he conceded he should not have responded to Smith with such language.“I regret stooping to the level of those threatening and abusing my family,” Oyston added.“My mobile number was placed on a social media website recently and it led to a barrage of abuse about my mother, father, wife, children and myself.“In hindsight the aim of this was clear, and I foolishly opted to challenge some of the abuse, harassment and threats.“Given my position, I should have acted with more responsibility and reported the abusive text messages, phone calls and answer phone messages to the police, rather than get embroiled in such an exchange.”Oyston said he would make a donation to the club’s Community Trust, which works with a number of organisations that support disabled people.last_img read more

‘Celtic are the greatest football team in the land’

first_imgEach week, a leading band or musician takes our special talkSPORT Q&A. Up today, it’s Celtic fans GUN…1) What’s your favourite talkSPORT Show and why?My favourite talkSPORT show is Colin Murray’s. He has great knowledge about sports in general and football, and has a real passion for music too. He’s funny and witty, I really love listening to his show.2) talkSPORT gives you your own show, what’s it’s called and what’s it about?It would be called “Soccer To Rocker” and be about footballers who love their rock music and their musical influences… would they have tried to become musicians if they hadn’t succeeded in becoming footballers? That kinda thing!3) Who are the greatest football team in the land?For me the greatest football team in the land are my beloved Celtic, who have a great history and following. We’ve had many great footballers and legends like Kenny Dalglish, Jimmy Johnstone, Henrik Larrson, but at present I think Real Madrid take some beating.4) Who is the most rock ‘n’ roll player playing the beautiful game right now?Thing is, with footballers a lot of them aren’t very rock ‘n’ roll. Some of their taste in music is really dreadful! The best player in the world is Ronaldo, but if only his music taste waste as good as his football… He likes R Kelly, Ricky Martin, what’s that all about? So for me the most rock ‘n’ roll player in the beautiful game right now is Iniesta, who’s a massive fan of Kasabian, so much that he had them round his house for some beers.5) If you were put in charge of the pre-match entertainment for the FA Cup final at Wembley, what band do you want playing live?The Foo Fighters, a band that are so good live and know how to entertain, have great songs and are the pinnacle of rock music this present day.6) Who’s gonna sing the National Anthem?If he was alive today it be Freddie Mercury, so I’m going for Mick Jagger.7) What track are the players walking down the tunnel and onto the pitch to?David Bowie’s ‘Heroes’.8) What’s on the stereo in the dressing room to psyche the players up?‘Another One Bites The Dust’, ‘Heroes’, ‘Rock The Casbah’, ‘London Calling’, ‘Du Hast’, ‘Back In Black’, ‘Times Like These’.9) You build your own rock ‘n’ roll five-a-side team, who’s in it?Kasbian’s Serge up front as he reminds of Samaras, who used to play for Celtic. Alongside him I’d have Steve Harris of Iron Maiden because he is a great footballer, Robbie Williams has great skill, Johnny Marr could’ve turned pro, and of course Rod Stewart, who’s a mad Celtic fan.10) You get to pick one footballer to work as roadie with your band. Who is it and what do you have them doing?My favourite footballer ever Diego Maradona, the most incredible footballer I’ve ever seen. What would I have him doing? I’d have him telling me all his stories in his footballing career and off the field, too, then after sound check or backstage I’d have him showing me some of his amazing football skills. My hero!11) What’s going on with you as an artist at the moment?GUN are bringing a new album out March 23 which is called ‘Frantic’, we are rehearsing for a tour to coincide with the album and single release so we’re very exited. Anyone who wants to catch up and find more about the dates we’re playing then look us up on www.gunofficial.co.uk or Gun Official Facebook! GUN’s new album Frantic is released March 23 2015.

Top bishop: Anglican fellowship is strong

first_imgRELIGION: Church leaders are discussing their differences, such as acceptance of gays. By Rachel Zoll THE ASSOCIATED PRESS NEW ORLEANS – The archbishop of Canterbury indicated Friday that the Episcopal Church isn’t on the brink of losing its place in the world Anglican fellowship, despite the uproar over Episcopal support for gay clergy. Anglican leaders, called primates, had set a Sept. 30 deadline for the Americans to pledge unequivocally not to consecrate another gay bishop or approve an official prayer service for gay couples. Episcopal bishops have dedicated their meeting here to crafting a response. But after two days of private talks with Episcopal leaders, Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams, the Anglican spiritual leader, said “there is no ultimatum involved.” The goal, he said, is “compromise.” “It’s been presented, sadly, as a set of demands,” Williams said in a news conference before he left. “I don’t think that what was in the primates’ minds. In fact, I’m sure it isn’t.” The Episcopal Church is the Anglican body in the United States and has a more liberal view of Scripture than most Anglicans overseas. Tensions over Bible interpretation erupted in 2003, when Episcopalians consecrated the first openly gay bishop, V. Gene Robinson of New Hampshire. For four years, Anglican leaders have held emergency summits and private negotiations, trying to prevent differences over homosexuality from shattering the Anglican Communion. There were moments of tension in the closed-door discussions. Bishops have said that Williams pressed them to make some concessions for the sake of Anglican unity. As bishops took turns addressing Williams, Robinson said he found some of the archbishop’s comments on the decision before the church “dehumanizing” to gays and lesbians. “I have always held the archbishop of Canterbury in high regard, and I will continue to do so,” Robinson said. Egypt Bishop Mouneer Anis told the bishops that their decision to consecrate Robinson created “one of the most difficult disputes in the communion in our generation.” “If you appreciate being members of the global Anglican family, then you have to walk alongside the members of your family,” Anis said. Yet no one expects Episcopal leaders to reverse course. Theological conservatives are a minority in the denomination, and some wish to stay in the church. Williams will work with Anglican leaders and with members of the Anglican Consultative Council, an international lay-clergy panel, in evaluating whatever statement Episcopal bishops make before they end their gathering Tuesday.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Daniel fronts new video about gas safety – and it’s hilarious!

first_imgDaniel O’Donnell stars in a new safety campaign launched by Gas Networks Ireland in which he turns up at his biggest fans house and offers to look at her gas boiler – only to be kicked out!A mere five hours after Daniel uploaded it on his Facebook page, it has over 111,000 views and 2,400 likes! Daniel steps into Mary’s sitting room, which is full of Daniel O’Donnell merchandise, with pictures of him printed onto cushions, portraits of him on the wall, and even a cake with his face carefully etched onto it with icing!Mary mentions that her house is cold as her gas boiler has been on the blink.Daniel then offers to ‘have a wee look’ at her broken boiler, to which she sternly responds ‘I’d like you to leave!’ while snatching away his cup of tea.A safety message then reads ‘never use an unregistered gas installer – even if it’s Daniel O’Donnell’. Although the video is comedic, it also communicates a very serious message.Gas Networks Ireland say; “The premise of the campaign is simple, you should never use an unregistered gas installer to carry out work on your gas appliances, such as gas boilers, no matter how seemingly convenient or tempting it may be.”Perhaps this could be a new career path for our Kincasslagh crooner?Daniel fronts new video about gas safety – and it’s hilarious! was last modified: October 3rd, 2016 by Elaine McCalligShare 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:daniel o donnellDDTVFunnygas installergas networks irelandsafety campaignlast_img read more

Aidy Boothroyd pleased with England’s ‘effort and energy’ despite U21 Euros exit

first_imgAidy Boothroyd has admitted he has mixed feelings about England’s exit from the European Under-21 Championship having watched from the sidelines as the Young Lions were beaten by Germany at the semi-final stage.Having played 120 minutes of regulation and extra time with the score tied at 2-2, it was the Germans who claimed victory in a penalty shootout, Nathan Redmond seeing his deciding spot kick saved.England impressed to reach the semi-finals of the tournament, even if their on-pitch performances varied from excellent to dour, and there were certainly members of Boothroyd’s squad who vastly improved their chances of making the senior team.And Boothroyd has heaped praise on his players despite the semi-final exit, highlighting just how well his youngsters dealt with the pressure of wearing the famous three lions.Speaking to talkSPORT, the former Watford boss said: “I think the players have dealt with a lot of pressure.“Playing for England isn’t easy as the shirt can be heavy, and after the Sweden game we got a good point then we had two high-pressure games we had to win and we did – we coped with the pressure there.“And tonight we’ve gone down, come back, gone ahead, they’ve drawn level then we’ve ended up losing on penalties.“[I’ve got] really mixed feelings, because I’m obviously delighted with the effort and energy everyone has put in – staff and players – but absolutely gutted because our tournament is over and we thought we could win it.”Despite these ‘mixed feelings’, Boothroyd believes, after a period of reflection, he will be able to look back on the tournament as a successful experience – but one to build upon.He added: “I think at this point, despite being really down about things, after a little period of reflection I think everybody connected with the team can be really pleased.“So, we’re disappointed to go out the way we did, but I’ve thoroughly enjoyed it. It’s been a brilliant tournament, a high-pressure tournament.“What we want to do now is get to the latter stages, and next time we’ll get there; we need to be winning finals, like we’ve done with the Under-20s – and I’m sure we’ll do that.”last_img read more
