SWANSEA (4-2-3-1)FABIANSKI,NAUGHTON, BARTLEY, WILLIAMS, TAYLOR,KI, SHELVEY,ROUTLEDGE, SIGURDSSON, AYEW,EDERLEICESTER (4-4-1-1)VARDY, OKAZAKI,MAHREZ, DRINKWATER, KANTE, ALBRIGHTON,FUCHS, HUTH,MORGAN, SIMPSON,SCHMEICHELJamie Vardy wrote his name into Barclays Premier League history by scoring for the 11th successive game for Leicester City against Manchester United last Saturday, overtaking Ruud van Nistelrooy.And if the England front-man scores again, in Wales, he will pull level with all-time record holder Jimmy Dunne, an Irishman who scored 18 goals in 12 successive First Division games for Sheffield United during the 1931-32 campaign.It is a remarkable run and one that has enabled Leicester to stay level on points with Premier League leaders Manchester City.Leicester would now be top but for the 1-1 draw with United, but the point extended their unbeaten league run to seven games while the Foxes remain the only team in the division yet to lose away from home.They have won four and drawn three away from home. Their 15 away points is the joint best in the Premier League, with Arsenal also boasting 15 points on their travels. Leicester also have 15 away goals (only Arsenal have more with 16).Swansea, meanwhile, are now 15th in the Premier League following their 1-0 defeat at Liverpool, their third loss in four games.Swansea, though, should be confident, having won their last three home league games against Leicester.
A man with a lengthy criminal record was arrested after becoming abusive with Gardaí, a court has heard.Gerard O’Connor, 54, was arrested at Lower Main Street Letterkenny after becoming aggressive and abusive and for failing to comply with the instructions of the Gardaí.Gardaí were called to Lower Main Street, after they received reports of a man who was extremely intoxicated and was causing disturbance in the area. Gardaí found O’Connor in an extremely inebriated scene and was deemed a danger to himself and others, Letterkenny District Court was told.He was subsequently arrested and taken to Letterkenny Garda Station.On the 8th of October, Gardaí received reports of a man causing severe disturbance outside the Bus Station in Letterkenny who was becoming abusive towards members of the public.Gardaí found O’Connor in a dishevelled and drunken state and when instructed to leave by Gardaí he launched into a tirade of expletives and called the Gardaí b******s.He was again arrested and brought to Letterkenny Garda Station.The court heard how O’Connor has had a long-history of problems with alcohol and despite efforts to reform had fallen off the wagon in recent years.The court also heard how he had 73 previous convictions, most of which were alcohol related although some included criminal damage.The court heard how Mr O’Connor was willing to enter into a rehabilitation unit in Galway and if granted bail would proceed straight to the facility after his hearing.Judge Denis McLaughlin agreed that “another stint in Catlerea wouldn’t help” the matter and allowed Mr O’Connor to go to the rehab facility.He also added that it was clear Mr O’Connor couldn’t come to grasp the seriousness of his problems and needed help urgently in order for him to stay out of trouble.He adjourned the case until the 25th of January.MAN WITH 73 PREVIOUS CONVICTIONS CALLED GARDAÍ B******* was last modified: November 12th, 2014 by Mark ForkerShare 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:courtsnews
