But on a club level Italy have had a good season, with Roma reaching the semi-finals of the Champions League and Juventus the quarter-finals, with Lazio going as far as the Europa League last eight.In Serie A, there was a gripping battle until the end for the title with Juventus securing a seventh Scudetto in succession on Sunday.But as the season draws to a close, Italy will be braced for a sad run up to a World Cup from June 14 to July 15 in which they will have no role.Over the next four weeks, while the world of football will be buzzing with news of pre-tournament friendlies, team selections and training camps, Italy will be just a sparring partner, playing pre-tournament warm-ups against France and Saudi Arabia.“I’m going to regret it all my life,” said heartbroken goalkeeping star Gianluigi Buffon.“We’ve deprived children of having a heart which beats for the World Cup.”On football pitches in Rome and throughout the peninsula, Italian children now say they want to support Argentina, “because (Juventus’s Paulo) Dybala is so strong,” or Belgium, “where Roma’s (Radja) Nainggolan plays.”– ‘Tough to watch’ –Goalkeeping legend Dino Zoff, however, believes enthusiasm for the World Cup will be undiminished among his compatriots.“It doesn’t feel like a World Cup but the fans will be there. Where there will be less will be in Russia. But Italians will watch it on television,” said the 1982 World Cup winner.“People in Italy are very attached to football and they will still follow it. But it might be tough to watch a little-known side play while our team, which has carved its name into footballing history with four World Cup titles, stays at home.”For Roberto Gandolfi, vice-president of Italian sportswear group Errea, who will be present in Russia as the kit supplier of Iceland, Italy’s absence will have above all a financial cost.“We have Iceland and it’s very positive but when you think of TV, that sort of thing obviously there will be harm. It probably won’t be fully realised until after the tournament,” Gandolfi told AFP.More than six months after their elimination Italy still do not have a permanent national coach, nor a federation president, and have slipped to an historic low of 20th in the world rankings.“We have to wait for the young players. They are there. I think we have a group of 20-25 players who can succeed with a bit of experience,” said Zoff.But under which coach? Carlo Ancelotti has said “no”, and the choice should finally be Roberto Mancini who left Zenit Saint-Petersburg on Sunday.“Not seeing the Azzurri won’t be nice for us, it won’t be the same World Cup,” said former Manchester City boss Mancini. “We need to believe the national side can return to among the best in the world.”Roberto Mancini might be leaving Russia because Italy aren’t going, and want the Zenit Saint Petersburg manager to take over the Azzurri © AFP/File / OLGA MALTSEVAFor Mancini, Italy “does not have the great champions that they always had, but they have good players because good players are always being born in Italy”.While awaiting this future generation, the country will follow the World Cup as outsiders, where they will be best represented among the referees, with four including three in charge of video assistant replay (VAR) among the 13 selected by Pierluigi Collina, another Italian.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000As Italy goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon ends his international career with dull friendlies instead of at a World Cup, many fans say they will support Argentina, who Buffon faced in March. © AFP/File / Oli SCARFFROME, Italy, May 14 – For the first time since 1958, football-mad Italy will follow a World Cup finals from the sidelines without their national team.Four-time winners Italy have been in chaos since their shock elimination in the play-offs last November to Sweden.
1 Southampton’s Jay Rodriguez is edging closer to a return after completing his first full training session on Wednesday.The England forward, who has been linked with a possible move to Tottenham in the summer, has been sidelined for a year after suffering a cruciate knee ligament injury against Manchester City in April 2014.Rodriguez’s imminent return will come as a timely boost for Ronald Koeman as the Saints continue their push for a Europa League spot.Southampton face fixtures against three relegation-threatened teams in Sunderland, Leicester City and Aston Villa before ending their campaign with a trip to the Etihad.As it stands, a sixth-place finish will be enough for Southampton to secure a European place but seventh could be enough if Arsenal retain the FA Cup against Aston Villa at the end of May.

A LANDLORD has admitted he knew the property he leased to a group of individuals was being used as a brothel.Ionel Iulian Bojoga, with an address at 7 Duffy’s Lane, Letterkenny admitted at the town’s District Court that he knew his premises were being used by prostitutes.The court heard that Gardaí issued with a search warrant, raided the apartment owned by Ionel Iulian Bojogo on June 19 this year. Gardaí discovered females in the rooms and a number of clients were ‘visiting’ the apartment at the time of the raid.A number of items and paraphernalia were seized from the apartment including a substantial amount of money.The court heard how the arrest of Ionel Iulian Bojogo had a devastating impact on him and his family.The defendant’s solicitor Patsy Gallagher told the court: “This has had a devastating impact on Mr Bojogo and his family.“He was remanded in custody for six to eight weeks following his arrest and was also directed to reside in Dublin following his release.“He was unable to see his family and it was an extremely difficult time for him and his family.“He realises he shouldn’t have leased the property to the individuals once he discovered what they were using his property for.“I would ask the judge to take into account his early guilty plea, and the fact he has no previous convictions.”In his closing summary Judge Denis McLaughlin said: “I’m taking into account the fact the defendant has already spent between eights weeks in custody, and the fact he’s had no previous convictions and is obviously a man of good character.”Judge Denis McLaighlin sentenced Bojogo to eights months in prison. However he suspended the sentence for a period of two years.The case is one of a number involving landlords which are due to be heard at the local court.LANDLORD CONVICTED OF LETTING OUT APARTMENT TO PROSTITUTES was last modified: November 11th, 2014 by Mark ForkerShare 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:convictedlandlordletterkennyproperty
Without a doubt, the city could and should do a better job of reducing the number of animals euthanized in L.A. shelters. This is a fair and reasonable demand, but it’s lost among the animal extremists’ unfair and unreasonable demands, as well as their unconscionable tactics. There’s no good answer to the problems at the L.A. Animal Services Department, and there won’t be until the extremists come back to reality and stop behaving like, well, animals.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORERose Parade grand marshal Rita Moreno talks New Year’s Day outfit and ‘West Side Story’ remake As much as no one wants Villaraigosa to break another campaign promise, it would be arguably worse for him to give in to this shrill band of people who obscure the righteousness of their cause with their self-righteousness that tramples on the rights of others. So the mayor has found himself stuck between a rock and a hard place: Either he breaks his word and keeps Stuckey, or he rewards uncivil – and sometimes criminal – behavior by dumping him. On Thursday, he made his choice and fired Stuckey, who has threatened to sue and almost certainly will wind up with the same kind of golden handshake that so many City Hall officials have received over the years. So the extremists have won, and at a steep cost to the taxpayers, but now what? Regardless of who is hired to replace Stuckey, the extremists will still be unsatisfied unless they get an ironclad no-kill policy in city animal shelters – which simply is not realistic at this time. While no one denies that animal shelters should be free from cruelty, some animals simply cannot be placed into good homes. Because of a failure of animal owners to spay and neuter their pets, the city is home to tens of thousands of unwanted dogs and cats a year. A good number of these are pit bulls and other poorly bred, poorly raised creatures that are simply too dangerous to be adopted out. Add into the mix that Los Angeles is a city of limited resources, with tremendous human needs, from health care to homelessness to gang violence and public safety. It would be irresponsible – and immoral – for city officials to permanently house unadoptable animals at the expense of meeting the real, critical needs of L.A.’s human inhabitants. It’s hard for the casual observer to choose sides in the battle between animal-rights extremists and Los Angeles city officials. That’s because in this clash, there are no clear good guys. To their credit, the extremists do have a few good arguments on their side: The city’s Animal Services Department has long been poorly run. Its general manager for the last year, Guerdon Stuckey, does seem less than wholly qualified, as he’s never worked in the animal-services field before. And Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa did promise, while campaigning for office, that, if elected, he would give Stuckey the ax. That said, it’s hard not to feel sorry for Stuckey, a well-meaning bureaucrat from Maryland who got the job because no one else would take it after his predecessors suffered years of abuse at the hands of city officials and animal rights fanatics. With their tactics of intimidation and harassment, these activists have made life a living hell for Stuckey, the past and current mayors and many Animal Services employees. They protest obnoxiously and offensively outside the mayor’s home and his public events. After Stuckey’s apartment was smoke-bombed, his wife fled back to the safer environment of Maryland. Employees of the department are so afraid that they’ve asked for police protection.
