Chelsea took a step towards the Champions League quarter-finals as Samuel Eto’o gave them an early second-leg lead.Galatasaray’s former Chelsea star Didier Drogba was given a predictably warm reception on his return to Stamford Bridge, where the home side went ahead after only four minutes.Oscar linked up well with Eden Hazard to create the opening for Eto’o and the striker’s hurried shot crept under the body of keeper Fernando Muslera, who perhaps should have done better.And after more nice interplay involving Hazard and Oscar, Frank Lampard sent an effort over the bar.Chelsea: Cech; Ivanovic, Cahill, Terry, Azpilicueta; Ramires, Lampard; Willian, Oscar, Hazard; Eto’o Subs: Schwarzer, Kalas, David Luiz, Mikel, Schurrle, Ba, Torres.Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebook
28 February 2003Taxi operators, commuters as well as formal and informal traders will benefit from a new partnership between the South African National Taxi Council (Santaco) and property development company Taxiprop-BR, in terms of which existing taxi and bus ranks will be transformed into retail and vehicle centre hubs at a cost of R2.8-billion.The 10-year agreement was announced this week at the Sandton Convention Centre in Johannesburg by Limpopo province Transport MEC Tshenuwani Farisani and representatives from Santaco, Taxiprop and Basil Read (Taxiprop-BR).According to Santaco president Thomas Muofhe, Santaco Property will be formed, with the taxi industry holding 51% of the share of the properties and using the money to pay for loans the organisation accumulates on the project.Kevin Williams of Taxiprop-BR, whose company will be responsible for rolling out the programme, said the new centres will offer commuters the convenience of retail stores on hand, while the retailers will have access to a concentrated market.The empowerment aspects of the move include an improved environment and opportunities for informal retailers, who will be located within specifically designated areas.National retailers will occupy 70% of the floor space, while 30% will be set aside for local business participation.In terms of the agreement, work will start this year on some of the major taxi ranks, which include the Randfontein Station in the West Rand, Wynberg in north-east Johannesburg, and Bloed Street in Pretoria.Source: BuaNews
11 January 2013 South Africa is already busy tackling the issues cited by ratings agency Fitch in its downgrade of the country’s sovereign debt, the National Treasury said on Thursday. The government was “aware of the challenges of poverty and unemployment the country is facing,” the Treasury said in a statement. “At its recent conference, the ruling African National Congress (ANC) endorsed the National Development Plan (NDP), which identifies the constraints to faster growth and presents a roadmap to a more inclusive economy that will address South Africa’s socio-economic imbalances and challenges.”From ‘BBB+’ to ‘BBB’ Fitch on Thursday downgraded South Africa’s long term foreign currency credit rating from “BBB+” to “BBB”, its long term local currency credit rating from “A” to “BBB+”, and its short term credit rating from “F2” to to “F3”. Giving reasons for the downgrade, the agency said that South Africa’s economic growth performance had deteriorated, and that this was likely to affect public finances and exacerbate social and political tensions in the country, which had increased. It added that South Africa had seen a decline in competitiveness, reflected in above-productivity wage settlements and infrastructure constraints which Fitch believes have contributed to the country’s widening current account deficit.Mangaung ‘gave certainty on economic policy’ In its response, the Treasury noted that South Africa’s slower economic growth rate was in part due to external factors, particularly the protracted debt crisis in the Eurozone, an important trading partner for the country. It said that the resolutions of the ANC’s conference in Mangaung in December had given certainty on economic policy, “which the Fitch report does not seem to fully appreciate”, adding that the government would be prioritising the implementation of the National Development Plan (NDP) in order to achieve higher levels of growth. Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan’s latest Medium Term Budget Policy Statement, published in October, “sets out a disciplined fiscal framework that keeps the expenditure envelope that was published in February unchanged,” the Treasury said. “It balances support for the economy in the immediate term with fiscal consolidation over the medium to long term. It provides for a sustained investment in growth inducing infrastructure.” This budget framework demonstrated South Africa’s unambiguous commitment to maintaining debt and expenditure growth within sustainable levels, the Treasury said, adding that these principles would continue to underpin South Africa’s fiscal stance.

Transfers ‘Bayern have Goretzka deal sewn up’ – Schalke need a miracle to keep star, says Thon Robin Haack 21:11 19/9/2017 FacebookTwitterRedditcopy Comments(0) Getty Transfers Bayern München Schalke 04 Bundesliga Arsenal Liverpool Barcelona The ex-Germany international believes a star of the current national side is set to complete a transfer after seeing a switch mooted for some time Leon Goretzka already has a move which will take him from Schalke to Bayern Munich “sewn up”, according to Olaf Thon.The highly-rated midfielder has been heavily linked with a switch to the reigning Bundesliga champions for some time, while the likes of Arsenal, Barcelona and Liverpool have also been reported as admirersSchalke spotted his potential early when acquiring the 22-year-old from Bochum, but face losing him as a free agent at the end of his contract next summer.

At least that is my impression.“The fact that no-one is talking about this topic at the moment is very suspicious.“Regarding him staying at Schalke, I am anything but optimistic. Schalke would need a minor miracle.”Thon represented Schalke and Bayern during his playing days, with a spell in Bavaria sandwiched by two in Gelsenkirchen.While the World Cup winner believes that Goretzka could soon tread a similar path, he feels that an extended stay in current surrounds for a man who starred at the 2017 Confederations Cup would be no bad thing.He added: “Goretzka’s current sporting situation would be a good reason for him to extend his contract. “He is in good form, he is scoring goals and has taken on a leadership role. He is the undisputed man in the midfield and deputy captain as well.”Goretzka opened his goal account for 2017-18 in his most recent outing for Schalke against Werder Bremen, with his 83rd-minute effort proving to be the winner.He managed seven in all competitions last season, before going on to net three times at the Confederations Cup as Germany tasted more international success a year out from starting the defence of their World Cup crown.
