The Spanish coach had plenty of time during the international break to work with his squad, given that only one player, Vinit Rai, had to report for national duty. After suffering back-to-back defeats in their opening two games, they came back strongly to pick an important win in Mumbai. However, they followed it up with a draw in Kerala.”We were playing good football in the first three games. The last game was not that good (against Kerala). We did well in the first two matches, but did not get the result. This is football. Tomorrow (Sunday) is an important game. ATK are a very good team and are at the top of the table. They have good footballers in their squad. But we are ready to compete and have the mentality to get all three points,” said Gombau.Table-toppers ATK will be hard-pressed to ensure they do not lose the momentum gained after three consecutive wins before the break. Roy Krishna and David Williams have set the league on fire with their camaraderie upfront, having scored six goals between them.Odisha’s defence will have to be at their very best to blunt ATK’s talented forwards. However, the Kolkata-based side will be without the services of midfielder Pronay Halder who suffered a shoulder injury in India’s away game against Oman earlier this week.ATK have the firepower to play a game as per the situation demands. For example, in their away game against Chennaiyin FC, they preferred to hit on the counter, instead of taking the game to the opponent. While in their home matches, they have always dictated terms and have played on the front foot.”We have a style of football. Our philosophy is that you respect the opponent and play the 90 minutes. We always focus on the next three points. You can’t win every match. But we focus from match-to-match. We have to run and not jump,” said coach Antonio Habas.The wily Spaniard, who is no stranger to the Shree Shiv Chhatrapati Sports Complex will look to mastermind a fourth win on the bounce for ATK while his compatriot will be busy trying to arrest ATK’s momentum. last_img read more

Plug pulled on community TV

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram The federal government has announced that it is effectively ‘switching off’ community television stations, suggesting to broadcasters that if they wish to continue with their programming they will have to do so via the internet.Minister for Communications Malcolm Turnbull said that stations will only be licensed until the end of 2015.The announcement will affect community broadcasters C31 in Melbourne and Geelong, 31 in Brisbane, TVS in Sydney, 44 in Adelaide and WTV in Perth.That means for people fond of community programming, like Vasili’s Garden to Kitchen, which has been welcomed by a lot of yiayiathes and pappouthes over the years, will now miss out, or if the programmers choose to, can continue watching their favourite programs on the internet. Australian Community Television Alliance secretary, and general manager of C31, Richard McLelland, said that the decision is the “death knell of community television in Australia”.McLelland was frustrated by the government’s decision.“He [Turnbull] seems to have a view that community television is not worth having in this country,” he said. But Mr Turnbull said that community television will be better served online.“The government believes that the best outcome for community television is that, in the future, it uses the internet as its distribution platform,” he said. “It will deliver wider audiences at less cost on a wider range of devices.”Community television has produced a number of household names, with the likes of Corinne Grant, Rove McManus, and Hamish and Andy starting out on the platform.Source: ABC Newslast_img read more
