first_imgRep. Ricks Toweh, District # 6, Nimba CountyRepresentative Ricks Toweh of Nimba County Electoral District # 6 has joined the opposition Liberty Party (LP).Rep. Toweh made the declaration in Saclapea City over the weekend when the standard bearer of Liberty Party, Cllr. Charles Brumskine, chose Mr. Harrison Kanwea as his presidential running mate for the October elections.Rep. Toweh in his remarks said the Liberty Party has been asking him to join the party as far back as 2005, before he got into politics.“Now that I have tested politics, I think it is now time that I join the Liberty Party and am therefore pledging my support to the party along with my supporters,” he said.Meanwhile, his critics say that Toweh joining the Liberty Party would not make a difference on the county’s political landscape, as he is unpopular in his district and the county at large.Many District # 6 citizens are demanding proof of Toweh’s impact in their district, especially when it comes to spending the funds allotted for the district from the 53rd Legislature of Liberia.In his remarks, Rep. Toweh boasted of joining the party with about 500 supporters, a number critics are doubtful of.It may be recalled that Rep. Ricks Toweh ran on the ticket of the now defunct National Union of Democratic Progress of Senator Prince Johnson. After the party fell apart, Rep. Toweh’s status in terms of party connections, remained in limbo until Saturday, March 18, 2017, when he finally found a political home in the LP.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Brendan Rodgers: Liverpool can land psychological blow with win at Arsenal

first_img Brendan Rodgers Liverpool can land a psychological blow on Barclays Premier League rivals Arsenal with victory at the Emirates Stadium on Monday night, according to manager Brendan Rodgers.The Reds travel to the capital for an early meeting with another side who have top-four aspirations this season aiming to continue their bright start after back-to-back 1-0 victories over Stoke and Bournemouth.Rodgers admits the result is unlikely to have too much impact on the final standings at this stage, yet appreciates an away win over Arsene Wenger’s men can greatly enhance the confidence among his group.“You’re playing one of the rivals that you’re hoping to be competing with at the top end of the table; these games are important,” Rodgers acknowledged.“They don’t give the full picture in terms of how it will finish up – you can draw or lose these games and still go on and achieve what you want to achieve. Of course it’s for the confidence and psychologically they are important.“No matter when these games come in the season they are always good for the psychological effect.“We’ve got a tough game away from home but we’ll arrive into the game with confidence. We know they’re an outstanding group of players and some quality individual players but there’s a real focus in this group for this season, a real toughness, mentally.“We know that we’ve got that ability to scrap and fight to get a result as well as play good football. If we can go there and perform like we think we can and keep to our game-plan we’re confident we can get a result.”In studying Arsenal’s recent home defeats, Rodgers has discovered his side may not necessarily need to match their opponents in the ball-retention stakes to prosper.Both sides have earned plaudits for being aesthetically pleasing under their current managers but Rodgers will be happy to cede possession to the hosts if it means they follow West Ham in taking three points at Arsenal this month.“If you assess Arsenal’s last 10 games they’ve lost at home, the teams that have won, it’s been about dangerous possession,” Rodgers noted.“The teams that have been there have only averaged about four shots on target, with 43% possession. It tells you that you can go there and you don’t need to dominate the ball, but you can dominate the space and that’s something that is important when you go away.“For us, tactically, we’ll arrive into the game in a good mind of how we can win it. Like Arsenal, we do like to dominate the ball, but there are certain games where tactically you look at the approach of what is going to get you the result. That’s something we’ve done and been working on this week.” 1last_img read more

Premier League top scorer signs new contract

first_imgLeicester City forward Jamie Vardy has signed a new contract with the Premier League leaders. The England striker’s new deal keeps him at the King Power until 2019 and it comes off the back of a red-hot 2015/16. Sheffield-born Vardy has netted 18 goals for the Foxes this season, as they have taken the Premier League by storm and they lead with just 13 games to go. The most recent victory in the club’s incredible rise – after avoiding relegation last season – came on Saturday afternoon as Claudio Ranieri’s men beat Man City 3-1 at the Etihad. Vardy has broken into the England squad, winning four caps, and is in line to be included in Roy Hodgson’s Euro 2016 squad this summer. He also set a new Premier League record when he scored in 11 straight games earlier in the season.Vardy, 29, told Leicester’s official website:”I’m absolutely delighted to be fighting to achieve something special with this club, as part of this squad.“I’ve never known a spirit like it – from the owners, to the manager and his staff, the players and the fans. I want to be part of it for a long time. “Leicester City have shown nothing but total faith in me since the day I arrived here three and a half years ago and it’s impossible to measure how much that belief has helped me to improve. I’ll forever be grateful for the investment the Club has made in me and I’ll spend every day working to repay it.”This time last year the club were at the bottom of the league having lost to Crystal Palace and Vardy had just one goal to his name. He has flourished since Ranieri came in and the Italian boss commented: “Jamie is a fighter. He has had an unbelievable journey to get to this point in his career and continues to play every game as if it’s his last.“I love his spirit, which is a quality I want in my players above all else. “He has shown what a fantastic player he is and, more importantly, he is part of a fantastic group. I am very happy that he will stay with us for a long time.”Vardy joined Leicester in 2012 for £1million from Fleetwood Town and he had previously played non-league football.Since arriving in East Midlands, he has scored 44 goals in 132 appearances.
