first_imgThe 20-year-old fisherman, who was wanted in connection with the murder of a Meten-Meer-Zorg, West Coast Demerara man, was on Tuesday arrested by Police.Dead: Noel SinghBased on information received, Ramesh “Braffy” Ramdeen was on the run after allegedly killing his fellow villager, Noel Singh, on Sunday. He was taken into custody after being spotted in Parika, East Bank Essequibo (EBE).Singh, who is a 22-year-old fisherman, was knifed to death in front of his home, owing to an old grievance between himself and the suspect.Reports are that at about 20:00h on Sunday, Noel was returning home from a bar where he and his friends had been consuming alcoholic beverages. He was in front of his yard when the suspect confronted him.The argument is said to have been a continuation of a verbal row the duo had some six days prior to the stabbing incident.However, the row escalated and the suspect reportedly whipped out a knife from the waist of his pants and stabbed the victim twice to the left side of his chest and once to his back. He then cut the fisherman along his left wrist.Singh then collapsed and fell into the drain in front of his yard. He managed to climb out, covered in mud, and was picked up by one of his friends, who had been on the street en route to a shop in close proximity of Noel’s home. Meanwhile, the suspect fled the scene and made good his escape.The now dead man’s brother and parents were alerted and a bleeding Noel was rushed to the Leonora Cottage Hospital, ECD, but was already dead when he arrived there.Noel’s friend, who found the bleeding fisherman on the street on Sunday night, Reyaad Mohammed, told Guyana Times that he had just returned home from work and was heading towards the shop to purchase an item when he noticed the suspect approaching him from the opposite direction.“All I see is this boy running coming towards me and I try to run back home because he had tried to attack me a lot of times already so when he passed then I came out back and saw my friend on the road laying there, panting for breath. I helped to take him to the hospital with a taxi. The person who stabbed my friend had beat up and cuff up my friend a few days ago before he stabbed him Sunday,” Mohammed said.last_img read more

City hailed as Premier League greats after 15th straight win

first_img0Shares0000Manchester City midfielder David Silva (R) celebrates after scoring their third goal during the English Premier League match against Swansea City at The Liberty Stadium in Swansea, south Wales on December 13, 2017 © AFP / Geoff CADDICKLONDON, United Kingdom, Dec 14 – Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City are being widely hailed as one of the best sides in Premier League history after they set a stunning new record of 15 straight wins.In its 25-year history, the Premier League has boasted a series of outstanding sides including Manchester United’s treble-winners, Arsenal’s “Invincibles” and Jose Mourinho’s powerful Chelsea side in his first stint at the club. But Guardiola’s team — even though they have not won any silverware yet — are smashing record after record as they sprint towards the Premier League title, leaving allcomers a distant speck in their rear-view mirror.Wednesday’s 4-0 win at Swansea took them clear of Arsenal’s 14 consecutive victories under Arsene Wenger between February and August 2002.Their 49 points from 17 games is the best-ever start to an English top-flight campaign, bettering the record of Tottenham’s great double-winning side of 1960-61 — when a win was worth just two points.BBC commentator Jonathan Pearce believes the current City side is at the top of the tree.“There have been great teams in the modern era but, in terms of fluent football and as an irresistible force, Manchester City are the best the Premier League has ever seen,” he said.“I’ve never seen a team in all my years play like this.”When asked whether City are one of the best sides we have ever seen, former England captain and TV pundit Alan Shearer agreed.“I don’t think there is any doubt about that, and top players in that team, with hunger and desire to put in a performance week in, week out,” he said. “It has to has to be admired.”Chastened Swansea manager Paul Clement described the pain of watching his side try to compete with Guardiola’s free-flowing team.“At times it was horrible to be on the sideline watching that, seeing my side trying but suffering for long periods,” he said.“They’re not the games that will decide our season but it was hard to watch at times because they were so dominant. For me, one of the best sides I’ve ever come across. So many good athletes, so many intelligent footballers and it’s really hard to pin them down.”Guardiola, who managed a Barcelona side widely regarded as one of the finest club sides in history, is aware of his team’s place in the English game.“In history there were amazing things like Liverpool in the 80s and Manchester United with Sir Alex Ferguson or Chelsea with Jose Mourinho,” he said. “There were some amazing teams.“But we are the first ones to win 15 in a row. If we win the title it will just be a record and this record will be broken, but of course it will not be easy.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more
