These countries are historically the most dominant in European competition and, therefore, we have adjudged their domestic competitions to be the toughest to win. The level of European club football is also far in advance of any other continent, with the world’s best players plying their trade in Europe’s top leagues.We then wanted to find out levels of support, so took the most recent average attendances across a season (2015/16) as a reliable guide.Additionally, we looked at wealth (as measured by Forbes’ most recent sports club valuations) and record transfer fees paid (to measure how wealth translates into spending power).Finally, in order to include only the very biggest clubs, we decided on entry criteria of at least 10 domestic titles or more, or a Champions League victory in the past decade.Once these conditions were established, we had a pool of 11 clubs vying for the title of world’s biggest: Real Madrid, Manchester United, Barcelona, Bayern Munich, Liverpool, Arsenal, Juventus. Atletico Madrid, AC Milan, Chelsea and Inter.In each category clubs were awarded points: 10 for first place, nine for second, eight for third and so on, down to one for 10th place and no points for finishing last.Find out how each club fared in the slideshow above. 17 17 17 Most league titles – Juventus are joint top with Real Madrid – Joint 1) Juventus and Real Madrid have won 32 titles apiece, giving them 10 points each in this category. They are followed by 3) Bayern 26 titles = 8 points. 4) Barcelona 24 titles = 7 points. 5) Man United 20 titles = 6 points. Joint 6) Liverpool, AC Milan and Inter’s 18 titles each = 5 points apiece. 9) Arsenal 13 titles = 2 points. 10) Atletico Madrid 10 titles = 1 point. 11) Chelsea 5 titles = no points. last_img read more

Courageous little donkey Timmy won’t be let down

Posted On Dec 28 2019 by

first_imgTimmy the Donkey captured the hearts and minds of the people of Donegal last year when he was born at the Donegal Donkey Sanctuary, now he needs their support once more.The brave little foal was born in July 2016 with a deformity and his hind legs were bent and twisted, preventing him from standing or feeding normally. In order to help him walk and run, he was fitted with a set of prosthetic shoes which are glued to his tiny hooves using a special adhesive.Little Timmy was given a lifeline by his kind carers Danny Curran and wife Sandra at the sanctuary in Raphoe and the generous donators who fundraised for his operation. Timmy became a celebrity as a super donkey with bionic legs! Timmy’s special shoesTimmy grows stronger everyday and lives a happy life with his mother Twilight, but his care plan is expensive and he needs the help of donators.Sandra Curran today gave Timmy’s fans an update on his health and renewed the appeal for help towards his care.“We have been cautiously optimistic about Timmy’s future over the last three months but are delighted to report that he is doing tremendously well and defying all the odds.“His care plan continues to be intensive with veterinary, equine physiotherapy and farrier costs. This is the toughest time of the year financially here at the sanctuary as our winter feed supplies are dwindling and we are waiting on mild weather and Spring grass to commence the summer grazing season.” “Any donations towards his continued programme would be gratefully received. Let’s not let this brave little man, who has come so far, down . GO TIMMY!”, Sandra said.The Donegal Donkey Sanctuary is a non-profit making operation that helps rehabilitate and rehome distressed and unwanted donkeys. They post regular updates on Timmy and all the other donkeys on their Facebook page and run an adoption programme so people can sponsor the care of the animals.

first_imgA Judge has ordered Gardai to break down the door of a house belonging to a dead Church of Ireland minister to get to the bottom of a land dispute.John Doe, aka Daniel Greene appears at court in Letterkenny.The house at Newtowncunningham was left to charity by the late Rev Samuel Reede, 86, when he died in 2010. However when estate agents called to the house at Rooskey in February, they found the house was occupied and had ‘No Trespassing’ signs on the windows.Since then a legal battle has taken place in a bid to get the man living in the house to come to court and explain himself.The man, who was initially known as John Doe, was eventually brought before Letterkenny Circuit Court on July 19th.The man gave his name as Daniel Green and told Judge John O’Hagan that he had deeds for the house and had paid a deposit for it.The case was due to be heard last week when Judge Petria McConnell ordered Green to appear in court.He failed to appear in court again today after Gardai went to the house.Garda Evan Joyce told the court they waited outside knocking on windows and doors for up to an hour and a half.He said there was “possibly” someone in the house but said he was not sure if he had reasonable grounds to use force to gain entry to the property and bring Green to court.Judge McDonnell instructed barrister Fiona Crawford to deliver a summonse to Green telling him he is to appear in court tomorrow.She also said she was now giving Gardai permission to “break down the door at 8.30am” if Green does not come voluntarily.She told Gardai that was perhaps not something they would like doing but that “this is going to go on forever if we do not do something.”Judge McDonnell also ordered Gardai to secure the house if Mr Green and his partner, known as Jane Doe, are not at the property.JUDGE ORDERS GARDAI TO BREAK DOWN DOOR OF DEAD CHURCH MINISTER’S HOME was last modified: October 15th, 2013 by StephenShare 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:Daniel GreenGardaihouseRev Samuel Reedelast_img read more

He approached a Garda patrol van and asked them for a lift home.However, the Gardai said they were busy but if he was still on the street in an hour they would bring him home.McFadden, of Corcknamurleog, then called the Gardai ‘gobs*****.’Solicitor Patsy Gallagher said his client rarely drank and remembered little about the night.Judge Paul Kelly said Gardai were not a taxi service and said McFadden responded in a childish way to what was a generous offer.He ordered McFadden to pay €100 to Carrigart Youth Club.MAN WHO HAD NOT BEEN IN NIGHTCLUB FOR 20 YEARS CALLED GARDAI ‘GOB******’ was last modified: January 14th, 2014 by StephenShare 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:DowningsGardaiJudge Paul KellyManus McFaddenlast_img read more
