We think we have a very, very good picture of all of the players and exactly what they’ve done in every game, and we can only pick honestly on what we’ve seen.”So far this season, Dele, 23, has not done enough.I spoke to Dele in the two previous months but there’s only so many times that they are going to want to have that conversation.Gareth SouthgateHis Spurs boss, Mauricio Pochettino, claims it is laugh- out-loud stuff for people to question Dele’s thirst and appetite for the game.The midfielder has spluttered into life in the last couple of weeks but has yet to meet the dizzying heights that once marked him out as a mainstay in the England side.Others are out in the cold as well, with Chris Smalling continuing to be overlooked despite an upturn in form during his loan spell with Roma.Lingard is really struggling to make the cut and error-prone defender Michael Keane has joined a lengthy list of senior players overlooked.The Everton centre-half had a torrid time in the Czech Republic defeat and it is difficult to envisage him winning a place again if John Stones can get his act together.For this one, Southgate decided to pick up the dog and bone.England’s head coach added: “Whenever I don’t select a player who has been with us for a period, I always talk them through the rationale of the initial decision then try to pick it up as we go through.“They need feedback — it’s important for players.3“I’ve done that with Michael Keane this time because they want to go away and improve and try to get back in the squad.“All of those guys are capable of getting back in the squad.“In most of those instances, they have missed a fair amount of the early season and pre-season, and that’s definitely affected their opportunities with their clubs.“Even so, they are all young enough to make that step back.”England can guarantee a place at Euro 2020 with a win against Montenegro at Wembley on Thursday or in Pristina against Kosovo on Sunday week.Southgate is still fine-tuning, trying to find the right balance as he looks to the likes of Mount, Barkley and Ox.He added: “I know there is this thirst for this creative player but we’ve scored more than anybody else in qualifying.Gareth Southgate explains why Jack Grealish is not in England squadMost Read in FootballTHROUGH ITRobbie Keane reveals Claudine’s father was ’50-50′ in coronavirus battleTOP SELLERGavin Whelan has gone from League of Ireland to David Beckham’s InstagramExclusiveRIYAD RAIDMan City’s Riyad Mahrez has three luxury watches stolen in £500,000 raidPicturedAN EYEFULMeet Playboy model and football agent Anamaria Prodan bidding to buy her own clubI SAW ROORodallega saw Rooney ‘drinking like madman’ & Gerrard ‘on bar dancing shirtless’NEXT STEPJonny Hayes set to move to English Championship having been let go by CelticREF RELEASEDChampions League ref Vincic released by cops after arrest in prostitution raidKEANE DEALEx Man United youth ace David Jones says Roy Keane negotiated a contract for him “But I think it’s fair to say that we’re still seeking that pivot who can do all sides of the game.“And if any of you see him, by all means, throw your hat at him.”Right now, that man does not go by the name of Dele.

A 21-year-old cross-dresser was on Thursday granted bail by Magistrate Leron Daly when he appeared at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts to answer to three charges.Nicholas Kissoon of B Field Sophia, Greater Georgetown, pleaded not guilty to the charges when they were read to him. The court heard that on May 23, Kissoon while in custody at the Brickdam Police Station damaged a door and door lock.He was also charged for assaulting Police Constables Tavon Watts and Ryan Fields. Kissoon was also charged with resisting arrest from Constable Fields.Police Prosecutor Sanj Singh did not have objections to bail being granted to theNicholas Kissoondefendant.The unrepresented Kissoon was released on $90,000 bail. The charges stemmed from an incident which occurred on April 27, 2017 at the Georgetown Prison, following an altercation between Kissoon and a female prison officer.Kissoon said she visited the prison to take “support” for a family member and got into an argument with the female officer at the gate.“She cuss me first, so I cuss her back and they took me to Brickdam Police Station,” Kissoon related.“They took me to the [Brickdam Police] Station to have a seat; they beat me and start discriminating my lifestyle I live … they are finding a lot of charge because they lash me to my head and bust it,” he explained.As it relates to the issue of attempted suicide, Kissoon said that it was a “trumped-up” charge and he had no knowledge as to why the Police would charge him with such an offence. “I have no knowledge about that, that’s a false allegation made against me by the Police.”Meanwhile, Kissoon is expected to return to court on May 28, 2018.
As the Police investigation continues into allegations of the million payment fraud, Deeds Registrar Azeema Baksh has since denied any wrongdoing. This was detailed in a statement issued on her behalf by her lawyer, Attorney-at-Law Nigel Hughes, on Thursday.It was alleged that Baksh unlawfully paid herself a higher salary than was approved by the Judicial Service Commission (JSC). These payments reportedly started in 2014 and continued up to the present, totalling almost $4.5 million.Additionally, it was claimed that the Deeds Registrar also waived some $7 million of revenue owed to the Deeds and Commercial Registries Authority (DCRA). The request was alleged made by an attorney who owed some $8.5 million, but only paid the Authority $1.5 million.Deeds Registrar Azeena Baksh and Legal Affairs Minister Basil Williams back in 2015However, Baksh has refuted both of these allegations. “Ms Baksh strenuously denies the allegations and will continue to provide the Guyana Police Force with all the documentation and other material to confirm her innocence,” the public missive from her lawyer outlined.In fact, Hughes pointed out that on February 13, 2013, the then Cabinet had taken a decision that all staff of the Deeds Registry who opted to transfer to the Deeds and Commercial Registries would be paid severance and would be offered contract gratuity appointments.He continued that pursuant to the issuance of that Cabinet memo, the staff of the Deeds and Commercial Registries were written to by the Permanent Secretary of the Legal Affairs Ministry on May 19, 2014, providing them with two options – either refuse the offer of employment with the Deeds and Commercial Registries and be transferred to another Government Ministry or Department, or accept employment with the Deeds and Commercial Registries and receive severance under the termination and severance act.“Ms Baksh accepted the offer of employment with the Deeds and Commercial Registry and was paid severance in keeping with the offer from the Permanent Secretary of Legal Affairs. The payment of salaries for the staff of the Deeds Registry is prepared by the Human Resources Department and submitted to the Finance Department for disbursement of salaries,” Attorney Hughes pointed out.He went on to underscore that Baksh did not have the authority to direct the Human Resources Department or the Finance Department, to make any payment of salaries. These Departments, he added, report to the Governing Board of the DCRA. The lawyer noted too that his client never authorised the Human Resources Department to place any member of the Deeds and Commercial Registries on the payroll.Nevertheless, Hughes stated that Baksh was invited by the Head of the Fraud Department of the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) on Tuesday for an interview, which she attended and the allegation that she had wrongfully authorised the payment of her own salary on a contract basis – when she was still a member of the permanent establishment – was put to her.The Attorney said the Deeds Registrar denied the allegation and undertook to provide the Police with all the documentations relating to the Cabinet decision, the offer of severance and the payment of her salary.Hughes further stated that the following day, his client returned to the CID Headquarters where she provided the Police with copies of the Cabinet memo, the offer from the PS of the Legal Affairs Ministry and other pertinent documents. However, he noted that on neither of those days, no allegation of any waiver of fees or waiver of any monies due to the Registry or the Government was ever put to Baksh during the interviews with the Police.Meanwhile, also commenting on the issue, former Legal Affairs Minister Anil Nandlall, under whose tenure Baksh was appointed, explained that whatever remuneration package the Deeds Registrar was enjoying came out of consultations with the Guyana Public Service Union (GPSU) prior to her, along with other staff members, transferring to the DCRA.
