Arteta: We’ll be ready for City

Posted on by

first_imgMidfielder Mikel Arteta cannot understand Arsenal’s hectic schedule – but maintains the players will be out to make a “big statement” with victory at Manchester City in Saturday’s lunchtime kick-off. “The mood will be fine, but the recovery time is very tight,” said the Spaniard. “I don’t understand why we play Sunday afternoon, then in Naples on Wednesday, getting back to London at four o’clock in the morning (on Thursday) and then we are going to play again on Saturday morning in Manchester. “However, there is not much we can do, so we just have to prepare well and be ready for it because they will be ready for us as they rested several players for their European game on Tuesday night. “However, there can be no excuses, we have to be ready, we want to win there and have to be prepared. “We know it can be a big statement if we get a good result there, so that is what we want.” Arsenal needed only a point against Napoli to be sure of top spot in Group F and with it seeding for the knockout stage. However, after their loss at the Stadio San Paulo – where midfielder Arteta was sent off in the second half – coupled with a late winner for Dortmund in Marseille, Wenger’s men are now likely to face one of Real Madrid, Paris St Germain, Bayern Munich, Atletico Madrid or Barcelona when the draw is made on Monday in Nyon, Switzerland. Arteta, though, feels Arsenal will present testing opposition for any of the seeded sides. Arsene Wenger’s squad have little recovery time following their midweek Champions League 2-0 defeat away to Napoli as they try to get themselves up for the challenge which awaits at the Etihad Stadium. Arteta, though, is confident the squad will be ready as they look to extend their five-point lead at the top of the Barclays Premier League before then tackling another of their title rivals when Chelsea are at the Emirates Stadium on December 23. “You are looking at the top teams who have won their group, so it is tough, but let’s see what happens,” he said. “I am sure, though, that they will not be happy to play against us as well. “On our day, we have shown that we can compete with any team in Europe, but you are making it tougher for yourself (by finishing second). “However, if someone had said before that you are going to be through, we would be happy with that, but with the position we were in, we wanted to finish first. “Now we know we will face some really difficult opposition in the next round so it is disappointing to lose the game, but at least we are through and can take some positives because it was a really tough group.” Arteta labelled his sending off at the Stadio Sao Paulo – where he was shown two yellow cards in the second half by Hungarian referee Viktor Kassai – as a “joke”. He said: “With the second one, he is on the floor before I got there, so I am very disappointed. “They made 20 fouls in the first half, and then I made two in the whole game. “I thought it was very harsh and unfair.” England forward Theo Walcott could be in contention to start against City, while full-back Bacary Sagna may also be fit following his hamstring problem. German forward Lukas Podolski, meanwhile, stayed in London this week to step up his rehabilitation after a torn hamstring sidelined him since the second leg of the Champions League qualifier against Fenerbahce in late August.

‘Judges Retire in Abject Poverty, Disgrace’

Posted on by

first_imgJudge Roosevelt Willie of Criminal Court ‘A’Judge Willie AlarmsJudge Roosevelt Willie, the president of the National Association of Trial Judges of Liberia (NATJL), said on yesterday that the continued denial by the government to pay retirement pension and benefit to judges has left most of them who have retired to live in abject poverty and disgrace.Willie, also Resident Judge of Criminal Court ‘A’ at the Temple of Justice, delivered his charge yesterday during the opening of Criminal Courts, A, B, C, D and wondered aloud, “It is very disheartening and frustrating for professionals like us to serve our country for all our lifetime and after reaching the retirement age of 70, live in abject poverty and disgrace.”Willie’s assertion comes just days after another retired Associate Justice Gladys K. Johnson sued the government for refusing to pay her legal and factual pensions and benefits, since August 2016, up to and including the filing date of her Petition of Writ of Mandamus before the Supreme Court.Mandamus is a “Special proceeding to obtain a writ requiring the respondents to perform an official duty.”Speaking to his audience that included Chief Justice Francis Saye Korkpor, judges, lawyers as well as party litigants, Willie explained that once a judge was to be retired his or her allowances cease to exist.“The monthly allowances of US$5,000 for judges and US$2,000 for magistrates and the 135 or 40 gallons of fuel as well as the quarterly scratch cards (GSM) and some funds for entertainment, including vehicles are all cut-off  by the government,” the criminal court judge disclosed.The NATJL president was frank yesterday to inform his audience that judges were receiving Liberian dollar LD$7,500 as monthly retirement benefits, likewise magistrates were taking LD$4,000, which is 50% of their take-home pay.Explaining the ordeal of some judges, Willie said, Judge William Ware, who was retired few years back, could not live on the LD$7,500 monthly retirement benefit with his family, and because of that stressful situation he died.“During his period of sickness, it was the association that was catering to his medical bills, even until he died,” the criminal court judge recollected.He also explained that another retired Judge, Friday Nah of the Debt Court in Sinoe County, has suffered from stroke and, because of the poor retirement benefits, the NATJL was also caring for his welfare.Besides Nah, Willie said, Judge Amy Musu Jones is also sick and cannot even walk and that the association is also caring for her wellbeing and welfare.To ensure that judges get their just retirement benefits, Willie told the gathering about their engagement with the Legislative and Executive Branches to see reason to enact the appropriate laws in that direction.“But, our plight for retirement benefits over the years continue to fall on deaf ears and have yielded no fruitful results,” the criminal court judge declared.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more
