Norwich will not sell striker to ‘direct rivals’ after two Bournemouth bids rejected

first_img Lewis Grabban 1 Norwich boss Alex Neil says Lewis Grabban will not be sold to a direct rival after the Canaries rejected two separate bids from Bournemouth for the striker.The 27-year-old moved to Carrow Road after a spell with the Cherries and could be in line to feature against another former club Rotherham in the Capital One Cup on Tuesday night.“Yes, we’ve had a few bids for Lewis but they have been rejected,” Neil said.“Bournemouth have come in with two separate bids and they have both been rejected.“Lewis is an important part of the squad. Lewis is a clever boy and he can see how much he has featured under me since I have been here and he is a big part of our plans.“I certainly won’t be giving players to direct rivals. That is the bottom line.”Grabban was an unused substitute in Saturday’s draw with Stoke.“That was purely because of how the game was developing. He will be in the squad for Rotherham,” the Canaries boss said.Neil is in the market for a “forward player”, with Crystal Palace’s Glenn Murray the latest to be linked after Stoke’s Jonathan Walters and Benik Afobe of Wolves.last_img read more

Bishop dies, last of Rat Pack clan

first_img“Are we remembered as being drunk and chasing broads?” he asked. “I never saw Frank, Dean, Sammy or Peter drunk during performances. That was only a gag. And do you believe these guys had to chase broads? They had to chase `em away.” Away from the Rat Pack, Bishop starred in two TV series, both called “The Joey Bishop Show.” The first, an NBC sitcom, got off to a rocky start in 1961. Critical and audience response was generally negative, and the second season brought a change in format. The third season brought a change in network, with the show moving to ABC, but nothing seemed to help and it was canceled in 1965. In the first series, Bishop played a TV talk show host. Then, he really became a TV talk show host. His program was started by ABC in 1967 as a challenge to Johnny Carson’s immensely popular “The Tonight Show.” Like Carson, Bishop sat behind a desk and bantered with a sidekick, TV newcomer Regis Philbin. But despite an impressive guest list and outrageous stunts, Bishop couldn’t dent Carson’s ratings, and “The Joey Bishop Show” was canceled after two seasons. Bishop then became a familiar guest figure in TV variety shows and as sub for vacationing talk show hosts, filling in for Carson 205 times. He also played character roles in such movies as “The Naked and the Dead” (“I played both roles”), “Onion-head,” “Johnny Cool,” “Texas Across the River,” “Who’s Minding the Mint?” “Valley of the Dolls” and “The Delta Force.” His comedic schooling came from vaudeville, burlesque and nightclubs. Skipping his last high school semester in Philadelphia, he formed a music and comedy act with two other boys, and they played clubs in Pennsylvania and New Jersey. They called themselves the Bishop Brothers, borrowing the name from their driver, Glenn Bishop. Joseph Abraham Gottlieb would eventually adopt Joey Bishop as his stage name. When his partners got drafted, Bishop went to work as a single, playing his first solo date in Cleveland at the well-named El Dumpo. During these early years he developed his style: laid-back drollery, with surprise throwaway lines. After 3 years in the Army, Bishop resumed his career in 1945. Within five years he was earning $1,000 a week at New York’s Latin Quarter. Sinatra saw him there one night and hired him as opening act. While most members of the Sinatra entourage treated the great man gingerly, Bishop had no inhibitions. He would tell audiences that the group’s leader hadn’t ignored him: “He spoke to me backstage; he told me `Get out of the way.”‘ When Sinatra almost drowned filming a movie scene in Hawaii, Bishop wired him: “I thought you could walk on water.” Born in New York’s borough of the Bronx, Bishop was the youngest of five children of two immigrants from Eastern Europe. When he was 3 months old the family moved to South Philadelphia, where he attended public schools. He recalled being an indifferent student, once remarking, “In kindergarten, I flunked sand pile.” In 1941 Bishop married Sylvia Ruzga and, despite the rigors of a show business career, the marriage survived until her death in 1999. Bishop, who had one son, Larry, spent his retirement years on the upscale Lido Isle in Southern California’s Newport Bay. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

He termed the comedian “the Hub of the Big Wheel,” with Bishop coming up with some of the best one-liners and beginning many jokes with his favorite phrase, “Son of a gun!” The quintet lived it up whenever members were free of their own commitments. They appeared together in such films as “Ocean’s Eleven” and “Sergeants 3” and proudly gave honorary membership to a certain fun-loving politician from Massachusetts, John F. Kennedy, at whose inauguration gala Bishop served as master of ceremonies. The Rat Pack faded after Kennedy’s assassination, but the late 1990s brought a renaissance, with the group depicted in an HBO movie and portrayed by imitators in Las Vegas and elsewhere. The movie “Ocean’s Eleven” was even remade in 2003 with George Clooney and Brad Pitt in the lead roles. Bishop defended his fellow performers’ rowdy reputations in a 1998 interview. Joey Bishop, the stone-faced comedian who found success in nightclubs, television and movies but became most famous as a member of Frank Sinatra’s Rat Pack, has died at 89. He was the group’s last surviving member. Peter Lawford died in 1984, Sammy Davis Jr. in 1990, Dean Martin in 1995, and Sinatra in 1998. Bishop died Wednesday night of multiple causes at his home in Newport Beach, publicist and longtime friend Warren Cowan said Thursday. The Rat Pack became a show business sensation in the early 1960s, appearing at the Sands Hotel in Las Vegas in shows that combined music and comedy in a seemingly chaotic manner. last_img

first_imgTHERE is some rare good news for the fishing fleets of Killybegs and Greencastle today – they will be allowed to catch more whitefish from next year.Minister of State Joe McHugh TD, commenting on today’s announcement “I welcome confirmation from the Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine, Simon Coveney T.D., that following discussions with the European Commission, a total of €123 Million in value of quotas was secured for the whitefish fishermen, an increase from last year. “For the North West region, this will mean a 20% increase in monkfish quota; a minor increase for the megrim quota, a doubling of the Rockall haddock quota and a 14 % increase in Donegal haddock for the ports of Greencastle and Killybegs. “This is a positive development and a good result overall for both fishermen and the relevant stakeholders, securing a continued future for the industry which will result in positive results for fleets. I would like to commend Minister Coveney on his hard work in securing this outcome, without which, the original Commission proposal would have included a 20% reduction in whitefish quotas, involving a direct income reduction of €18m for our fishermen.“There was also agreement from the Commission that they would reverse the proposed 14% cut in the prawn quota, based on scientific advice, and that instead there will be a 3% increase in our quota for this extremely important €60 Million fishery. The Minister has also secured an 11% increase in the hake fishery and maintained quotas for monkfish and megrim stocks. This involves a total landing value of €27million to the whitefish fleet operating in the Celtic Sea.“It is important to note that there will be an additional review in February 2015 of the total allowance for herring fishing and this will be something that I will be raising directly with the Minister.”  DONEGAL FISHERMEN GET 14 PER CENT INCREASE IN HADDOCK QUOTA was last modified: December 17th, 2014 by John2Share 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:FISHING QUOTASGreencastlehaddockJoe McHughKilllybegslast_img read more
