McAnuff eyes good result in Costa Rica

first_imgAttack-minded midfielder Joel ‘Jobi’ McAnuff, who missed an easy scoring chance for the Reggae Boyz in their 1-1 draw with Costa Rica at the National Stadium on Friday night, says he wants to make amends in their return CONCACAF semi-final round World Cup Qualifier in San Jose on Tuesday.The England-based McAnuff, one of the most influential players for Jamaica, especially in the first 45 minutes of Friday’s game, collected a fine defence-splitting pass, but sent his shot high and failed to trouble the Costa Rica goalkeeper.little disappointed”Yeah, I just probably tried to put a little bit too much power into it rather than placing it and I am a little disappointed that I did not put that into the back of goal,” he told journalists after the game.McAnuff, however, stressed that everyone gave 100 per cent during the game and the Reggae Boyz had chances to win the game.”We played them (Costa Rica) in the Gold Cup and we should have won that as well. We need to turn the ‘should haves’ into wins, and we believe we can do that,” he said.Historically, Jamaica’s Reggae Boyz have it all to do in San Jose as they have never beaten Costa Rica at home, but McAnuff said they will fight to win on Tuesday.”The group is getting stronger and we responded well to the goal on Friday. Maybe, in years gone by, we would have gone under and lost the game, but we held on and really made sure we were playing up in their half towards the end.”We are going to be right there to the end and get the points we need,” he stressed.Jamaica are third in the four-team group with four points. Costa Rica lead with seven while Panama, also on four points, are ahead of Jamaica on goal difference. Haiti are at the bottom of the group on a point. Only the top two teams will advance to the final round.last_img read more

Surely this depravity should not be allowed to continue

first_imgDear Editor,As an earnest tax paying citizen of Georgetown, can the Council inform us when the current Mayor and Councillors of the city of Georgetown will embark upon correcting the wrongs and repairing the extensive damage that was wilfully done to our capital city by a former senior administrative municipal staffer?If one were to take a stroll in the Bel Air Park neighbourhood along where the empty lots known as R3 and R4 are located, one can still observe the remaining evidence of the venal attempt at land grabbing by the “Fantastic Four”. There is an old shipping container and a dilapidated and teetering guard hut defacing one side whilst the other side has been made into a swamp that breeds mosquitoes and cultivates copious amounts of wild brush, weeds and trees due to it being recklessly excavated when the gang was trying to illegally convert this dedicated open space into a dedicated upscale housing plot for themselves. The area needs to be restored into an aesthetically pleasing open space. The same goes for the Farnum Ground in the Subryanville area where another illegal land grab attempt was made.In the downtown area, there are old cut-up railway tracks that have been placed along some sidewalks, which serve no useful purpose other than to have given “the boys” some jobs and some free money to cut up and bolt down this scrap metal. This should be removed and sold to the scrap metal dealers.And then there is the unfinished and now derelict “Presidential Park” at the eastern extremity of Church Street and North Road, which was an unrefined attempt to pander to the politicians. This eyesore needs to be either completed by the relevant agency or torn down. Should this area not be returned to a green space as part of our city’s and country’s green agenda?And further west of these same two roadways, there is the area that was assigned to street barbers, cosmetologists, and beauticians, many of whom are unlicensed which is now nothing short of a shantytown with a number of rickety makeshift tents barely standing, adorned with scraps of multi-coloured plastic, cloth, and canvas, and which is ironically named “The Beauty Promenade”. In the interest of developing our tourism industry, this area should be cleared and cleaned in addition to the dog kennel type structures that were constructed a little further west which is supposedly a “Farmers Market” for wholesalers who bring their produce for sale on Thursdays and Fridays from the rural areas.Surely this depravity should not be allowed to continue. We need to take back our city from this unlawfulness.Sincerely,Anu Biharilast_img read more
