Klopp negotiating with Liverpool?

first_imgEx-Dortmund boss Jurgen Klopp has told Liverpool he would gladly take the Anfield job – but only on his own terms. The 48-year-old former Dortmund boss is on sabbatical after stepping down from his job in Germany last season. He has made it clear he would happily work for the five-time European champions as long as he is the unanimous choice to do so and the club also scraps their transfer committee, according to the British tabloid the Daily Mail. Klopp is regarded alongside Carlo Ancelotti as prime candidates to replace Brendan Rodgers should owner John W Henry and the Fenway Sports Group decide to make a change. However, Rodgers’ inability to dictate his own transfer policy is something Klopp would not tolerate even if he does want to manage one of Europe’s top clubs. Having taken Dortmund to two Bundesliga titles and a Champions League final, Klopp is in a strong negotiating position and could extend his break until the summer when Pep Guardiola leaves Bayern Munich.last_img read more

Liverpool latest team news v QPR – Reds to welcome back first team stars

first_img 1 The international break was something of a blessing in disguise for Liverpool, with the Redmen visibly hindered by injuries.Prior to their victory against West Brom last time out, Brendan Rodgers’ men had failed to win since their 3-0 away success against Spurs and they will be licking their lips at the prospect of another much needed three points when they take on a below-par QPR side on Sunday – live and exclusive on talkSPORT.The biggest positive for the club however should be the return of Daniel Sturridge, who has been absent since the end of August. Liverpool have undoubtedly missed his predatory instincts in attack, with Mario Balotelli yet to find his shooting boots.Sturridge has reportedly flirted with returns over the past weeks, but is expected to finally take to the pitch at Loftus Road on Sunday.Another important player slated for a return is Joe Allen. The Welshman has been absent with a knee complaint, but Rodgers confirmed prior to the international break that the midfielder will be back in action when the league campaign resumes.His return will offer something of a selection dilemma, given Jordan Henderson’s strong form and Adam Lallana’s recent impact, but it is a problem Rodgers will surely be happy with.The Raheem Sterling debate will likely resume following his withdrawal from England’s Euro 2016 qualifier with fatigue. The 19-year-old has been among Liverpool’s most frequently used players this season, but he should be fresh to face his former side on Sunday.Liverpool’s only injury concerns surround Emre Can (ankle) and Jon Flanagan (knee), with the latter not expected to return until December.A question mark continues to linger over Mamadou Sakho’s future. Rodgers commented that the Frenchman has been struggling with injury, but with suggestions that he has fallen out of favour at the club, it will be surprising to see him make the starting line-up against QPR.Liverpool’s provisional line-up v QPR: Liverpool should be back to full strength for the weekend 1 Liverpool fans, do you think Daniel Sturridge will return against QPR? Comment below…QPR v Liverpool is LIVE and EXCLUSIVE on talkSPORT on Sunday from 1pm. Click here for coverage.last_img read more

DD Motoring: The Ford Focus RS

first_imgDriving this Focus RS was a bit like knowing you were dreaming and afraid you might wake up. All too soon my drive was over and as always with good dreams the memories fade fast in the real world.After my cousin dropped out of college I remember my late Aunt Bida updating me on his progress. Brendan! Ah he’s doing great, he now does the books for a band, what is it you call them? “FOCUS”! Nah that’s not it, they’re called “BLUR” that’s it. Knew it had something to do with your eye sight. Advertisement Think my drive in the new Focus RS this week was a bit like my aunt’s memory of the 1980s band, The Focus went that fast.It was more like a Blur! Both in terms of sheer power, 345 bhp, and the pure enjoyment.Ford are 100 years in Ireland this year and what better way to celebrate their anniversary than to take a drive in one of the fastest road going Focus that Ford have ever produced.Enjoying a cuppa at Macs as we test out the new Ford Focus RS from Hegarty’s .Letterkenny. Photo Brian McDaidAndrew Hegarty thought the blue RS was the nicest looking of the two RS Focus he had in the showroom. That blue is unique to the Focus RS he said. I had my own reasons for wanting to drive a white RS. Advertisement That oval Ford badge on a white Ford RS just sends me into a male version of Alice in Wonderland.I remember reading somewhere that in 1968 the first Ford MK1 Escorts RS 1600 were available in any colour as long as you ask for them in Diamond White!A decade on in the 70’s and I was living the dream, not Alice in Wonderland, more like “Brian in Ballymacool” working at the Old Hegarty’s Auto Services garage “out the Row” at 14 years of age on the petrol pumps, moving Ford Escort RS 2000s and Escort Mexicos around the forecourt.40 years on and I am back in Hegarty’s looking for excuses to move RS’s around their forecourt again; No doughnuts now, Brian! Andrew Hegarty warns me as he hands me the key of the gleaming white Focus RS, Doughnuts I thought, some chance, I wasn’t even going to chance a “coffee to go” in it.Getting into the RS and seeing the Recaro seats takes me back to the new Ford RS2000 of the 1970’s with the mesh in the see-through headrests.The best of the best in seating from Recaro on board the Focus RS which we drove this week. Photo Brian McDaidI press the starter button the engine rumbles to life, Cosworth breathed their magic on this latest power plant as they did on them first RS1600 escorts of the 60s. If them engines of the 1960s had a rasping sounds of sucking air and fuel into the inlet, now the present day turbos have the thunder of fuel and air pushed in the induction valves.To the untrained eye this diamond white Focus just looks like any other Focus. To a Cosworth Connoisseur, the heritage of this car has signs at every corner of it. I know cars that have smaller road wheels and tyres than the brake discs are on this Ford Focus, they’re massive! with blue Brembo Brake callipers looking out through the alloy wheels.The big brakes, a view through one of the wheels of the New Ford RS Focus to the Bembo Brakes Systems. Photo Brian McDaidThe traffic is heavy on the High Road as we await our turn to merge into it, 0-100kms takes just over 4 seconds, so it’s not to long before we are out in the flow of traffic.As you would expect from this RS, it has a stiffness to its suspension, but still this car can be very civilised on the road, that’s if you wanted that way. Give it a stretch of open road and give it the gas and it’s a different animal, there were hairs standing on my head where I no longer have hair! As this car gathered its horsepower, and shorten the straits, pure magic.I have to say that over the years the RS badge kind of lost it’s way, (in my view) when the power was transferred to the front wheels, but this RS has brought it all home again. It’s a bit like the riff of that song that you have forgotten over the years that transports you to a time, a place, and a feeling.Ford have always done this so beautifully and this Focus is the prime example. This RS is four-wheel drive but makes no big deal about it.Now if you want to really engage with it, you can at the flick of a button puts it into drift mode. It must put a load of power to the rear wheels. I honestly don’t know.. Mr. Hegarty!This car got a bit of bad press for this button when it was launched. As do most things that you enjoy these days.One of the reasons I like this RS in white is at a passing glance it might look like any other Ford Focus, but looks in this innocent white car is where it ends! There are loads of cars running about now with the clothes of far more powerful cars with spoilers and buckets seats and very slick low slung body lines.This car needs everything including that bad boy or girl button, it needs every inch if downdraft from its aerodynamics, every inch of grip from its go faster wheels, every bit of stopping power from them big Bembo brakes.I dreamed all my life of owning an RS, not that I think that I am that good of a driver.Driving this RS was a bit like knowing you were dreaming and afraid you might wake up.All too soon my drive was over and as always with good dreams they fade fast in the real world.In the old RS2000 it was the clonk of the gearstick making it way into the close ratio gear shift that will always remind me of them great cars. Now 40 years on it’s just pushing the start button and the rumble of the 2.3 engine’s note out through them two walk through exhausts that gets me.54,000 euros buy this white RS Focus, think the blue one might be dearer, but they are class, even at that price.The Lotto I made a journey to Dublin to say goodbye to the last of my aunts, who passed away last week.Funerals for me make me appreciate life.Me and my brother Cathal went up and shared the driving. Normally I just use the motorway from Adree on into Dublin all of the time. He was driving back and wanted to use the old Ashbourne Rd. which we did.I told him we still needed to find a place to pay for our toll on the M50 and we finally found a place in Ardee on the Dublin Rd. called Daybreak.I paid for the E flow, 7.80 for two passes on the M50 in the van, two Magnum ice creams for me and my driver, a bottle of Coca Cola for Cathal and a coffee for me, and two lotto one each for us for luck!I have to say I enjoyed my journey back home to Donegal sitting in the passenger seat going through all them old towns but as the week progressed I couldn’t help but notice that my regular stop at the filling station on the Motorway in Lusk was the filling station where the winning lotto ticket was sold on the same day and time that we were on the old road parallel to it. Mmmmmmmmm… Good Bye Focus RS.And finally I included a couple of pictures from Damien Tourish’s shakedown as he prepares for the Galway Rally this weekend.I am so happy to see this rally going ahead but think longterm spectators will have to get involved in some way for this free to view sport.Man and Machine. Damien Tourish , who by his own admission is a bit rusty pictured at the weekend as he get to grips with his Ford Escort MK2 in preparation for the forthcoming Galway Rally this weekend. Photo Brian McDaidOne of the biggest attendance to any sport in Co. Donegal is rallying. There is no gate receipts so no one really knows how may thousands of spectators come to Donegal every year. The Galway rally this weekend is the same and it gives that county on the western sea board a much needed cash injection to the local economy.We are in the same boat up here. So longterm there should be some way of taking the burden of insurance off the competitor. It will be to late trying to addresses this when the insurance premium gets to high.We overcame this before in the 1980s and to my memory Donegal Motor Clubs were one of the front runners in raising the much needed cash, The club also introducing new safety measures.On standby Our Motoring columnist on the Donegal Rally in the 1980s as part of a emergency team to fly to tan accident in the event of one happening.I can remember giving up my rally weekend to sit on call with accident cutting gear at a helicopter to fly straight to the scene of any accident on rally weekend.Happy Motoring FolksDD Motoring: The Ford Focus RS was last modified: February 1st, 2017 by Brian McDaidShare 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:brian mc daiddd motoringfocus rsfordlast_img read more

GSK buys into Aspen Pharmacare

first_imgUnder the terms of the agreement, GSK and Aspen will collaborate on the commercialisation of their current and future product portfolios in Sub-Saharan Africa, excluding South Africa, where the majority of combined current sales are attributable to GSK. The Bad Oldesloe manufacturing site produces some of the products to be divested and a number of other products previously acquired by Aspen from GSK in June 2008. As part of the agreement and on closure of the transaction, Aspen will appoint a non-executive director, nominated by GSK, to its board of directors. Sub-Saharan Africa “Going forward, the collaboration will build a broader and more diverse portfolio for these countries, with Aspen’s extensive pipeline of new products expected to benefit from greater leverage through GSK’s existing commercial infrastructure,” the company said. UK-based GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) has announced the acquisition of a 16% stake in Aspen Pharmacare, Africa’s largest pharmaceutical company, as part of a deal that will see the two firms combining their commercial activities in sub-Saharan Africa, and several assets being divested to Aspen. “At the same time, GSK will also benefit from investing in one of Africa’s leading healthcare companies with a formidable track record of delivery.” 13 May 2009 “The combination of our commercial activities is highly complementary and will mean that together we can provide more medicines of value to more patients in these countries,” GSK emerging markets president Abbas Hussain said in a statement this week. The products to be divested include Alkeran (excluding US), Kemadrin, Lanvis, Leukeran, Myleran, Purinethol, Septrin and Trandate, which had combined sales of £56-million (about R712.5-million) in 2008. “These divestments reflect GSK’s strategy to simplify its operations and divest certain products which can be more efficiently commercialised by other parties,” the statement read. Aspen will issue GSK with 68.5-million new shares, representing a 16% shareholding in the company, in return for a manufacturing facility in Bad Oldesloe, Germany, as well as eight specialist medicines. GSK said extending the strategic relationship with Aspen supported its strategy to accelerate sales growth in emerging markets. In South Africa, where Aspen has extensive commercial capability, GSK will transfer marketing and distribution rights to Aspen for its pharmaceutical products.
