Carrick hails Mourinho, Ferguson as managerial ‘greats’

first_img0Shares0000Former Manchester United midfielder Michael Carrick embraces manager Jose Mourinho as he leaves the pitch at Old Trafford © AFP/File / Oli SCARFFLONDON, United Kingdom, Oct 12 – Manchester United coach Michael Carrick says Jose Mourinho is in an elite group alongside Alex Ferguson as one of the greatest managers of the past 30 years despite his current problems at Old Trafford.The former midfielder, 37, took up a coaching role at the end of last season after a distinguished playing career at West Ham, Tottenham and United. Mourinho will be hoping last weekend’s thrilling 3-2 comeback win against Newcastle sparks a revival after a dismal run of results saw United slip well off the pace in the Premier League and exit the League Cup.Carrick told Britain’s Press Association that the most striking thing about the Portuguese boss was his track record in winning trophies over many years.“He’s managed to win trophies at United,” said Carrick. “We’re striving now to get back to it, but as a manager you can’t hide from the fact about what he’s done. It’s up there with the very best.“Fortunately for me, you look at the best managers over the last 25-30 years. You’re picking the top three, top five — two of them you’d say Jose or Sir Alex are right up there.“I’ve been lucky enough to experience that and take what I can from both of them.”Carrick is hoping to become a manager in his own right and said he was trying to “learn from the great Jose Mourinho at close quarters”.Carrick’s contemporaries Frank Lampard and Steven Gerrard have already embarked on managerial careers.“You look at Frank (Lampard at Derby) and I know Stevie (Gerrard) has done a year with the younger lads at Liverpool, but he’s gone straight in at Rangers and it looks like it comes natural to them.“I’m in my position as I am at the moment and it feels good for me, so we’ll see what the future brings.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

first_imgDD Exclusive: The licenses for Donegal’s two commercial radio stations could be changing hands, if two businessmen get their way.Highland Radio, which has the license for north Donegal, is facing a challenge from millionaire Inishowen businessman Paddy Simpson.The Carndonagh native, how living in Fahan, has extensive business interests. He has given the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland a substantial five-figure sum in order to be allowed to bid for the license for north Donegal, which has to be renewed later this year.Mr Simpson will now go ahead with a proposal to remove Highland from the airwaves and replace it with a brand new station.And Ocean FM, which has the license for south-west Donegal, north Leitrim and Sligo, is facing a challenge from the man who used to hold the license for the area.Paul Claffey was the man behind North West Radio who held the licence for south Donegal until 2004 when it was awarded to Ocean FM. At the time there were protests about the decision with people taking to the streets. There was a bitter war of words after an Ocean FM commissioned report described North West Radio listeners as “old, conservative and from a lower social class.”It was also controversial with the decision-makers split three votes each with the chair of the BAI casting in favour of the new station.At the time North West Radio was the most popular station in Ireland.Mr Claffey continues to run the highly successful Mid-West Radio – but would dearly love to get broadcasting licence back for south Donegal, Sligo and north Leitrim.The process for getting the next licence in 2014 starts later this year. “It is my opinion that we would be very well placed to serve the people of the region for the next licence period,” Mr Claffey told the Sligo Weekender newspaper last year.He said his MWR station would share content on a new North West Radio station, insisting: “The shared arrangement worked very well before and would be reignited again. It is the ideal option in the current climate when a lot of stations are now losing money.”MILLIONAIRE BUSINESSMEN IN BID TO WIN BROADCAST LICENSES FROM HIGHLAND RADIO AND OCEAN FM was last modified: March 26th, 2013 by BrendaShare 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:MILLIONAIRE BUSINESSMEN IN BID TO WIN BROADCAST LICENSES FROM HIGHLAND RADIO AND OCEAN FMlast_img read more

first_imgDonegal have received a massive boost with the news that Leo McLoone has returned to full training with Rory Gallagher’s squad this evening in Ballyshannon. McLoone opted not to re-join the squad when Rory Gallagher took over citing that he wanted to take time out to go travelling.However, McLoone has lined out regularly for his club Naomh Conaill and his performances have been superb for Martin Regan’s side. McLoone was an integral cog in Jim McGuinness’s side during his tenure as manager and his return will be a welcome one for Donegal supporters and manager Rory Gallagher.McLoone has established himself as one of the best half-forwards in the game over recent years and is a player who always performs consistently.He scored crucial goals against Derry and Antrim in last year’s Ulster SFC.His return will provide a welcome team selection headache for Rory Gallagher who spoke at his disappointment at losing the services of McLoone earlier in the year. Donegal are continuing their preparations for their FIFTH Ulster SFC final in-a-row with Monaghan on July 18th.   MASSIVE BOOST FOR DONEGAL AS LEO MCLOONE RETURNS TO COUNTY SQUAD was last modified: July 2nd, 2015 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:donegalGAALeo McLoonenewsSportlast_img read more

Pello Hairdressing: See what happened backstage at London Fashion Week!

first_imgWhat a way to start 2018 for Letterkenny based salon Pello Hairdressing! The exclusive Aveda salon owner Patrick Gray has just returned from an amazing 3 days of working backstage with Aveda on 3 different shows for 3 different designers for London Fashion Week A/W18.PATRICK BACKSTAGE WITH AVEDA AT LFW A/W 2018As we all know LFW is one of the biggest fashion events in the world. Patrick Gray, the owner of Pello Hairdressing, which is the only Aveda salon in Donegal, was thrilled to be representing the Aveda brand for Ireland. Patrick said he “was enormously proud to be chosen as part of a team of 11 international Aveda stylists from around the globe.” He felt privileged to work under the guidance of Bea Watson who was the team leader for The London shows. Bea is also the global educator for Aveda. GLOBAL EDUCATOR AND TEAM LEADER BEA WATSON WITH PATRICK.Also overseeing the team was Jon Reyman, who’s a collaborative stylist for some of the most influential designers in the industry notably Donna Karen, Oscar de la Renta, Nautica and Carolina Herrera.Jon heads up to 20 shows during fashion week each year between London, Paris and New York. JON REYMAN WITH PATRICK GRAY Patrick says “that despite his 39 years experience of working in the industry it was a pretty unique experience”. He added that “with these guys you need to leave your ego at home as it’s such a time pressured environment with 18 models for each show who all need to have hair, nails, and Make-up done within a time frame of 3 hrs. That leaves up to 2 models for each stylist, so the pressure is on as everything needs to run as smoothly as possible. Patrick added “Bea is a true Aveda Artist with a totally calm aura She’s amazing at coordinating a team and remaining cool and collected throughout. ”You realise working backstage for London Fashion week that teamwork is crucial for an event at this level and this is something that I totally instil in my own staff training here at Pello and it’s what makes a busy salon run smoothly.”Team Effort Backstage“It’s was a fantastic feeling to be able to come back to the salon in Letterkenny and share this very magical and unique experience with my team. “Not only that but it gives us here at Pello Hairdressing the opportunity to share with our guest the in-looks that are trending right now straight from the catwalk.”A few of Patrick’s team members had also styled for New York Fashion Week the previous week. However they all agreed that London is the coolest of the fashion weeks.Patrick himself an avid follower of fashion week over the years, always thought that hair for the Paris shows was the most glamorous, with New York being the most wearable and Milan always tending to be more classical.But London always seems to have that edge and creativity that always makes us want to grab our tools and copy that latest look that’s hit the runway.My own personal favourite says Patrick “was a look from the Roberta Einer show inspired by the 80s sensation Sade which was the featured with my own model in the evening standard”. He added “This was a slick low braid with a high shine finish.” Patrick has worked with the global Aveda brand of which the product’s up to 96% naturally derived for over a decade. He opened Pello Hair Color and Design in Letterkenny in 2007 and has recently opened Pello Hairdressing in Letterkenny Shopping Centre in July 2017. As an appreciating of his belief and devotion to the brand coupled with his almost 40 years experience of working in the hair industry he was truly humbled to be invited as part of the team. At the beginning of each show you are briefed by the team leader on the looks that needs to be created for each individual designer. Each designer will have from one to 3 or 4 different styles to complement their unique fashion design. The three designers that Patrick represented as part of the Aveda team were Roberta Einer, Paula Knorr and Merchant Archives.

This was mixed with sleek low ponies and plaits which were varied to suit the individuality of the models sporting the look.Another amazing highlight for the weekend for Patrick was  that his team effort model from the show made “The Evening Standard Newspaper”.Patrick’s joint Model (to the right ) made the Evening Standard Newspaper.DAY 2: THE TALENTED GERMAN DESIGNER PAULA KNORR. A/W2018 LFWRED ALERT FOR PAULA KNORRPatrick’s second backstage show was for the German-born designer Paula Knorr which was held at the BFC Show Space, on The Strand.
