Five pairs of teammates that did not get along despite on-field success

first_img 4. Emlyn Hughes and Tommy Smith – Both men would appear on a list of Liverpool’s greatest ever captains but Hughes and Smith despised each other. Smith has been quoted in interviews as saying “I hated scoring for Liverpool because Hughes would come up and congratulate me. I hated him.” It all began when Bill Shankly replaced Smith with Hughes as captain, leading to disharmony in the dressing room. Smith was the more popular of the two among senior players, saying “the only mates he (Smith) had at Liverpool were straight out of a vending machine.” 5. Kieron Dyer and Lee Bowyer – click the arrow, right, to see some more high-profile falling-outs – The pair came to blows during Newcastle’s 3-0 defeat to Aston Villa in 2005 when Dyer refused to pass to Bowyer on two occasions before telling his teammate it was “because you’re **** basically!” After both receiving their marching orders, they attempted to continue the fight in the dressing room until manager Graeme Souness offered them both out and Alan Shearer called them a “disgrace”. They have since patched things up. 3. John Arne Riise and Craig Bellamy – Riise and Bellamy’s fall out infamously also involved a golf club. At their five-day training camp to prepare for their match with Barcelona in 2007, the Liverpool players were singing karaoke but Riise refused and acted angrily to Bellamy’s continued insistence that he perform. After a few more drinks the Welshman got angry about the incident and grabbed an eight iron from his golf bag and hit Riise with it a few times while he was sleeping in bed. The pair put their differences aside and scored a goal each as the Reds beat Barca 2-0 at the Nou Camp. 5 5 5 5 1. Alan Shearer and Chris Sutton – Despite forming one of the greatest strikeforces in Premier League history – scoring 49 of Blackburn’s 80 as they won the title in 1995 – Shearer and Sutton (or ‘SAS’) did not see eye to eye. Sutton, the junior of the pair by three years said: “Off the pitch it’s difficult to put into words how I felt. There was an underlying feeling that there wasn’t any warmth towards me from Alan. I moved for a British record transfer fee and maybe stole the limelight away from Alan for a short period.” Cristiano Ronaldo stormed out of a Champions League press conference on Tuesday after growing tired of questions about his lack of away goals and relationships with Gareth Bale and Karim Benzema.The Portugal captain was quizzed whether he felt the close bond of Neymar, Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez was helping the trio outscore Real Madrid’s own front three this season.However, Ronaldo responded by saying “When I was at Manchester winning the Champions League, with some players like [Ryan] Giggs, [Rio] Ferdinand and [Paul] Scholes our discussions were limited to ‘Good morning’ and ‘Good night’.“But when we were on the pitch together there was total understanding. I don’t need to go out for dinner with Benzema or Bale. What counts is what happens on the pitch.”The former Old Trafford favourite implied he was not close to his Manchester United teammates, but which other footballers didn’t get on off the pitch?talkSPORT looks at five big falling outs between footballers that occurred while playing at the same club.Click the arrow above, right, to see some of footballs most infamous ‘frienemies’. 2. Andy Cole and Teddy Sheringham – Cole and Sheringham we integral to Manchester United’s famous treble-winning 1999 squad but off the pitch, the two couldn’t stand each other. It began when Cole was snubbed by Sheringham while replacing him to make his England debut in 1995. Cole said the move made him feel “small”. 5last_img read more

More taxes coming for TCI restaurants

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, TCI, June 15, 2016 – A proposal to broaden the base of who is taxed for giving dining services in the country will mean more revenue and a more leveled playing field believes the Finance Minister, Hon Washington Misick who presented the amendment to the 2014 ordinance.Minister Misick, yesterday during House of Assembly debate admitted there is push-back on the move to make more restaurants subject to the 12% tax.  Magnetic Media in checking the pulse of the marketplace found that while there is support for equity in who has to deliver on this tax to government, there is also the view that if there will be more paying the Hotel & Restaurant tax – which earned the second highest revenue for TCIG last fiscal year – then the tax could and should be lowered.Perhaps this suggestion holds merit, as Government recorded a surplus of $68.6 million last financial year and in that Ministry of Finance report, it said,  “Favorable results from the Hospitality sector, recording $58. 2 million at year end for Hotel & Restaurant Tax.” Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Related Items:last_img read more

Employees provident fund investment into indexed equities to remain at 5

first_imgThe Employees’ Provident Fund Organisation (EPFO) has no plans to increase its investment limit than what it already does into India’s stock exchange traded funds (ETF), Labour Minister Bandaru Dattatreya told Parliament on Monday.The expectations that the retirement-corpus guarding entity could increase its limit from 5 percent to up to 15 percent into such exchange traded indexed funds remained just that. In a written reply to the Lok Sabha on Monday, Dattatreya said that “at present there is no proposal under consideration of the government to enhance this limit.” The retirement fund’s central board of trustees (CBT) has only agreed to continue with 5 percent investments into ETF, but hasn’t proposed any further increase.The CBT was expected to meet sometime before July 22. Also, both the labour minister and the finance ministry had granted an in-principle approval to extend investment into India’s equities market.PTI reported that Dattatreya had said the “quantum of investment to be made into ETF” would increase after the organisation had discussions with both the Bombay Stock Exchange and the National Stock Exchange, while the finance ministry too had cleared a proposal for investment between 5 to 15 percent into equities through these ETFs. Dattatreya held that such an approval is for long term investment, while “it may be may be up to 10 to 12% depending upon the market conditions.”Investments into ETF began a year ago and, as of June 30, the EPFO had invested Rs. 7,468 crore in two index-linked ETFs — one on both the exchanges. The present market value of the investment stood at Rs. 8,024 crore, which was 7.45 percent return on investment.The EPFO is a statutory body under the labour ministry.last_img read more
