“The road connecting the City Football Academy youth and community pitches with the Club’s First Team Centre has been renamed ‘Vincent Kompany Crescent’ and is marked by a mosaic inspired by Vincent’s unforgettable goal-celebration in the 2012 Manchester derby,” City said in a statement.“At the unveiling, the Chairman (Khaldoon Al Mubarak) revealed to Vincent that the Club has also begun the process of commissioning a sculpture to publicly recognise and celebrate his achievements and contributions to Manchester City. When completed the sculpture will take pride of place outside the Etihad Stadium.”Kompany had been due to feature in the star-studded charity match that will see a City legends team face an all-star XI of former Premier League players to raise money for his homelessness charity Tackle4MCR.The 33-year-old left the Premier League champions in May to become player-manager at Anderlecht and, much like the latter half of his City career, was hit by a muscle injury in defeat to Genk last month.“Unfortunately I can’t start or even play. I have a slight hamstring injury and can’t risk it. It’s typical me,” said Kompany.However, the Belgian international played down his frustration at missing out with the most important goal raising funds for charity.Current City stars David Silva and Sergio Aguero will line-up alongside the likes of Mario Balotelli in a team managed by Pep Guardiola.They will face an all-star side littered with former Manchester United greats like Edwin van der Sar, Gary Neville, Paul Scholes and Ryan Giggs, but also boasting Thierry Henry and Robin van Persie in attack.“We are specifically dealing with homelessness in Greater Manchester. You can’t have a successful project without Manchester United involved. We have our differences – that is clear – but if we can get together for these sort of events the city is stronger.”City failed to replace Kompany in the summer transfer window and are now short at centre-back with Aymeric Laporte facing a lengthy spell out injured.However, Kompany is confident that Guardiola will ensure Laporte’s absence is not as costly as it seems over the next few months.“By losing Laporte you lose a big player. You need big players in the bigger games but the key strength of this Manchester City team is relying more on the system than the individuals.“I don’t see City weakening. Pep is way too aware of this danger to let it happen.”0Shares0000(Visited 32 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Vincent Kompany will not be fit to take part in his own Manchester City testimonial on Wednesday © AFP / Paul ELLISLONDON, United Kingdom, Sep 11 – Manchester City will honour former captain Vincent Kompany with a statue of the Belgian outside the club’s Etihad stadium.Kompany will miss playing in his City testimonial on Wednesday due to a hamstring injury, but was in attendance as the club also named a road at their training base after the centre-back.
DISPUTE: Officials in L.A. and neighboring counties feel shortchanged on funds. SACRAMENTO – An aggressive push by Southern California lawmakers to grab more money for local trade projects was shot down Tuesday as a state transportation panel passed a plan that some said shortchanges the region’s desperate needs. A coalition of five Southern California counties had demanded up to 85 percent of $3 billion potentially available to improve trade corridors, arguing that’s how much state trade is handled by Los Angeles and Long Beach ports and Inland Empire distribution routes. But the California Transportation Commission rejected the arguments and instead awarded the region a little more than half. Assembly Speaker Fabian Nu ez, D-Los Angeles, decried the decision as a political compromise not based on merits. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREPettersson scores another winner, Canucks beat Kings“The proposal before you shortchanges the neediest areas of the state when it comes to goods movement,” he told the panel. Nu ez also threatened to have the Legislature consider overturning the decision when transportation funding is debated next year. “This in my view is not only unacceptable, but if these guidelines are adopted, I guarantee you that we’re going to have a problem when we look at how we reconcile our differences in the Legislature,” he said. Nu ez – along with Assemblyman Mike Feuer, D-Sherman Oaks, who chairs the budget subcommittee on transportation, and about 35 other legislators from the five counties – had sought more for the region. Recognizing the political difficulty of asking for 85 percent, Nu ez sought a compromise giving about $2.2 billion, or 73 percent, of the trade funds to the five counties. Ultimately, however, the commission upheld its staff recommendation that those counties get $1.5 billion to $1.7 billion, or about 50 to 57 percent. The vote was 8-1, with the commission’s only member from Los Angeles County, Larry Zarian of Glendale, as the lone dissenter. Zarian said his opposition was based on doubts about revenue projections of the available funding. Commission Chairman James Ghielmetti said the staff recommendation was the fairest-possible result of two days of talks. “We did our work and tried not to politicize it. Now it looks like it’s going to get politicized. The fact of the matter is everyone could use more money, and we don’t have more money,” Ghielmetti said. In L. A. County, projects potentially targeted for the funds include replacing the Gerald Desmond Bridge, creating grade separations along the Alameda Corridor East and improving freeway interchanges. Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa said extra funding is needed because cargo volume in the region is expected to triple in the next 10 years.”Any allocation that fails to recognize this special burden is unacceptable and demonstrates a lack of commitment to the millions of voters in Southern California who overwhelmingly supported Proposition 1B,” he said. San Diego was considered its own trade corridor region and got $250 million to $400 million. MediaNews Staff Writer Erik N.

The parish priest of Termon has said that Donegal needs no greater incentive to go on and win the All-Ireland than to honour tragic GAA fan Andrew Duffy.Fr Pat McHugh was speaking today as more than 1,500 people turned up for the funeral of the young farmer who drowned in Dublin last weekend.Bathed in warm sunshine, St Columba’s Church was packed to overflowing as people turned up to show their respects to the 24 year old farmer. Fr McHugh said he still couldn’t sleep thinking about Andrew and how Donegal’s joy had turned to sadness at hearing of the young man’s passing.He spoke of a young man who was shy, unassuming and who had a deep faith.“This county was ecstatic at Donegal’s win over Cork and the fact that we were in only our second All-Ireland final. As the news filtered through the county and through our country, even the most exuberant fan found the good had gone out of the occasion“Everyone felt for the Duffy family in their suffering and grief. I watched the Donegal flags flutter in the breeze as I travelled to Termon and thought to myself how happy we should be but sadly we find ourselves in the throes of grief,” he said. He said his thoughts and prayers were with Andrew’s mother Margaret, father John and sisters Leanne and Carolyn.He also revealed how Andrew had even telephoned his dad John at 11pm to seek his permission after deciding to staying in Dublin after the semi-final win.A number of Donegal GAA stars including Michael Murphy, Mark McHugh, Karl Lacey and Brendan Boyle also attended the funeral mass.Members of Andrew’s own club Termon provided a guard of honour to and form the funeral mass as did a number of other clubs including Glenswilly and Gaoth Dobhair.Fr McHugh added that Andrew has already left his legacy by the way he lived life but said his football heroes could still honour him one last time “At times like this one often thinks of erecting a monument in memory of the deceased, but Andrew left his monument in this community and it is a monument of a life well-lived.“If the Donegal team needs an incentive to win the All-Ireland, it would be to honour the memory of Andrew Duffy,” said Fr.McHugh.PRIEST TELLS DONEGAL TO WIN ALL-IRELAND IN MEMORY OF ANDREW was last modified: August 31st, 2012 by StephenShare 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:ANDREW DUFFYfuneralTermon
