FKF hopeful Oliech will show for Malawi

first_img“The fact that Oliech is already in the country proves to us that he still has the national team top on his mind, it’s a sure sign that he still wants to be part of the line up.“We understand the concerns of Kenyans and will continue to engage him in the view of seeing him make a comeback and boost our campaign to feature in the World Cup and the Africa Cup on Nations,” he added.Oliech quit the national team last month over the use of his image in a team sponsor’s billboard leaving head coach Francis Kimanzi with a major headache in attack six days ahead of the kick-off at Moi International Sports Centre, Kasarani.With AFC Leopards striker, Allan Wanga injured and Sofapaka FC forward Bob Mugalia out of the team due to problems with his travel papers, the question of who will lead Stars’ forward line against The Flames is the biggest riddle facing the side.Kimanzi has been compelled to recall Thika United striker Kepha Aswani barely 24 hours after he had dropped him along other six Kenyan Premier League (KPL) players to make space for the foreign based contingent.Aswani, who has netted 10 goals in the domestic league this season, has no proven international pedigree having been called-up then axed from the final squad last year. Slovakia based Patrick Oboya who has not featured in the side since 2008 earned a recall to the team and is the only recognizable forward in the side that once again finds itself mired in ill-preparations for a crucial game. With influential midfielder, AC Parma’s McDonald Mariga out injured and keeper Arnold Origi also missing from the side, Kimanzi will face Malawi without the spine of recent squads and the head coach must find new people to step up to the plate.Over the weekend the tactician dropped Aswani, Mugalia, Leopards striker Victor Ochieng, teammate Bernard Mang’oli, Peter Opiyo of Tusker and Gor Mahia’s Rama Salim.Celtic’s Victor Wanyama and Oboya of MFK Ruzemberok have already joined the camp with DR Congo based Titus Mulama of club FC Saint Eloi Lupopo and Patrick Osiako of Petrolul Ploiesti of Romania likely to report to camp within the week.The Malawi Flames who were held to a barren draw by Taifa Stars in an international friendly match on Saturday where Kimanzi was in attendance are expected to arrive on Wednesday evening.The match officials for the Saturday tie are also expected to arrive on the same day led by referee Eric Otongo Castane, his assistants Theophile Vinga and Sylvian Mouala and fourth official Yves Mbourou all from Gabon.Match Commissioner Abbasi Ssendyowa from Uganda and referee inspector Hassan Souleiman will also be in the entourage.After the weekend fixture, Stars will travel to Namibia for their second qualifier on June 9 with Origi expected to make his long awaited return. Namibia was also held to a goalless draw by Mozambique in a friendly tie over the weekend. A week later Kenya will take a 2-1 advantage away to Lome for their second leg June 15 tie against Togo in a 2013 Africa Nations Cup knock-out qualifier.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000NAIROBI, Kenya, May 28- Football Kenya Federation (FKF) is optimistic AJ Auxerre striker and captain Dennis Oliech will rescind his retirement decision and feature for the national team during the Saturday’s World Cup qualifier against Malawi.Speaking to Capital Sport on Monday, FKF Secretary General Omondi Adunda said indications were the country record scorer was likely to take up the armband during the 2014 Mundial qualifying opener against The Flames who arrive on Wednesday.last_img read more

Burbank toughens rules on markets in Rancho neighborhood

first_imgBURBANK – If Whole Foods Market thought it was tough to get a store in Burbank before, it will be even tougher now. A 3-2 City Council majority Tuesday ordered more stringent rules on letting large grocery stores into the Rancho equestrian district. The proposed zoning amendment would require any food market intending to move into the area to apply for a conditional-use permit, an arduous process that could take up to six months and requires approval by the Planning Board. Activists – including many who defeated a Whole Foods Market proposed in the Rancho earlier this year – had sought to outright ban future grocery stores for the neighborhood. But Councilman David Golonski, who voted for the amendment with council members Gary Bric and Anja Reinke, said Wednesday the added scrutiny would address concerns about potential downsides of a grocery store development, including traffic congestion. “It’s really more protection” than the Rancho had before, he said. The former city plan had allowed for only specialty food markets in the neighborhood, but an update in 1998 added grocery stores to the list. Mayor Marsha Ramos, who voted with Councilman David Gordon against the amendment, said it sends the wrong message. “What you’ve potentially told a developer is, `When you bring a project, we will consider it,”‘ Ramos said. “I just think we have a lot of work to do, and I just don’t want to send out mixed messages to developers.” Roman Gora, a Rancho resident who helped organized the neighborhood against Whole Foods, asked for a stronger measure. “We’re hoping we might be able to revisit this or have another round with the council … so the neighborhood can rest easy,” he said. eugene.tong@dailynews.com (818) 546-3304160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Man United poll: 70% believe this MUST change at Old Trafford

first_img1 Louis van Gaal has a big job to do at Man United As the fall-out from Manchester United’s FA Cup exit at the hands of Arsenal continues to rain down, the inquest is starting to begin about what needs to change at Old Trafford.Red Devils fans celebrated the appointment of Louis van Gaal as manager following a successful World Cup campaign for the Dutchman, and while he has maintained that this is very much a side that needs extensive work done, something doesn’t seem to be working at Old Trafford.talkSPORT commentator and pundit Stan Collymore said that ‘something has to give’ at the Theatre of Dreams if United are to return to their glory days, pointing out that either the fans need to change their expectations or Van Gaal must alter his philosophy.One of the main causes for friction between the fans and manager is in the belief in how United should play their football, with the United faithful demanding a return to attacking, attract football, while Van Gaal pursues a patient, possession-based game.With that in mind, we asked talkSPORT listeners who they thought needed to compromise in this impasse and the results were pretty conclusive.Just 32.1 per cent of those polled believe that it is United’s fans that must change their expectations, while a pretty sizable 67.9 per cent said that Van Gaal must alter his philosophy if he is to get his side ticking again.Manchester United fans, what do you think? Should there be a change of heart in the stands, or is it down to Van Gaal to try something different? Comment below…last_img read more
