Pardew: Don’t pressurise Perez

first_img The 21-year-old Spaniard has scored three times in as many Barclays Premier League games, including winners against both Tottenham and Liverpool, to draw comparisons with Geordie heroes such as Alan Shearer and Andy Cole. However, while he has been delighted with the youngster’s contribution to date, he is determined not to pile the pressure on him as he prepares to unleash him on QPR this Saturday. Press Association Newcastle boss Alan Pardew has urged people not to label striking sensation Ayoze Perez after a stunning start to his career in England. “He’s a smashing player and is low-maintenance. We’re enjoying him on the training ground.” If Pardew has found a solution at one end of the pitch, he is having to be inventive at the other end too with Coloccini definitely sidelined by a calf problem this weekend and Steven Taylor also struggling. As a result, left-back Paul Dummett will line up the in the middle once again alongside the fit-again Mike Williamson, and his manager will have no qualms about him doing so. He said: “He’s been a player that the fans were slow to respond to. For us, we’ve always felt he had a massive chance because of his defensive abilities. They’ve really come to the fore in this run, either at left-back or centre-back. “He’s got a tough job on Saturday. He will play centre-back and will be up against two strikers really on their game. This will be a big test for him. “But I’m not going to lose any sleep over it, I’m confident he can deal with it, and I couldn’t pay him a higher tribute than that.” Pardew also moved to address claims from South America that midfielder Jonas Gutierrez had been told to find another club after being diagnosed with testicular cancer. The 31-year-old is due back on Tyneside within the next few weeks after winning his battle, and the manager insists he will be welcomed with open arms. He said: “It’s difficult, when you’ve said to a player to get a new club and unfortunately the illness has come. “You try to be supportive, but of course, the player wants to find a bit more assurance than that. “But that decision was a 100 per cent football decision. I want to invite Jonas back and give him the best possible chance when he returns.” Pardew said: “At the moment, he’s fearless. He’s got the wind in his sails and is going along very nicely. He’s been very sharp in training. He’s a threat. “If you take your eye off him, he’s a predator. I’m sure QPR will be having conversations of how to look after him. He’s difficult to pin down, his movement is very clever. “But he is a young player. Some of the headlines have been way off the mark – the new Alan Shearer, the new Andy Cole. “This is a boy who has played three games. Those players are legends and have done it all. Ayoze is just setting foot in the Premier League. “But I have to say, he’s done really well so far. I’m pleased with him.” Perez, a £1.5million summer signing from Tenerife, has got his chance because of an injury to Papiss Cisse with the Magpies having decided not to sign a big-name frontman during the close-season. He was seen as a player for the future, but the impact he has made to date has been remarkable after settling in with a little help from skipper Fabricio Coloccini. Pardew said: “He’s a nice, bright boy. Because of the language, Colo has taken him under his wing. That’s helped him settle quickly. last_img read more

Green State Strategy will put pressure on treasury – Jagdeo

first_img…To be scrapped after PPP wins 2020 electionsIn reiterating his disapproval of the Green State Development Strategy (GSDS) that was created to replace the Low Carbon Development Strategy (LCDS), Opposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo said it would only put pressure on the treasury, and if the People’s Progressive Party (PPP) returned to office, it would be automatically scrapped.Jagdeo described the draft strategy, which he has had a look at, as one that was a basic ‘cut and paste’ of best practices from around the world, essentially lacking the ability to attract funding for Guyana.“It will add cost. I disagree with its fundamental premise. The premise which brings cost to the country versus earning money for the country… The LCDS was an economic strategy. It earned money for Guyana. The GSDS is so far about expenditure from our treasury. That is why conceptually, we disagree with it.”Jagdeo, the mastermind of the LCDS, which secured him international recognition and led to him being conferred with the “Champion of the Earth” award by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) said that under the LCDS, there were specific areas that were targeted for development purposes across Guyana.“We said we are going to spend US$10.5 million on Amerindian land titling. It solved a problem. Two, we will spend US$17 million on ICT (Information Communication Technology) in the hinterland. We would spend x amount of money like US$80 million on the hydropower by buying down equity,” he explained.Further, the Opposition Leader said there were also plans to create a centre for biodiversity studies and establish an adaptation plan. He said, “We searched into crops that were flood and bug resistant. We set aside money for small loans and grants too to individuals in various sectors. It was about 20 initiatives and we were earning money doing that, we weren’t taking money from taxpayers’ money.”As such, the former Head of State argued that the GSDS was more about cost to the Guyanese public. “Right now, they are talking about planting trees and all of that. They missed the whole point that that was an economic strategy to adjust to the future. That’s why conceptually, we have a major difference,” he added.Reference was also made to the fact that several foreign consultants were hired to review the strategy for advice and further input, including requesting the Global Green Growth Institute (GGGI) to be part of it. Jagdeo, who was the first President of that body, said he has seen a lot of what has been used before in the GSDS, in addition to that of the work being done by UNEP.“The speeches would tell you, (David) Granger… the first year he went into Parliament. He keeps saying one thing over and over again. It does not change. Same old thing,” Jagdeo stated, noting that the GSDS would not bring any substantial benefits to Guyana, but rather put pressure on taxpayers’ dollars.Jagdeo noted that the Strategy has not received the approval of the National Assembly, while noting that it was still at its conceptual stage. Nevertheless, he said, “That is a political initiative of Granger until it has parliamentary approval as far as we are concerned. In all likelihood, we will scrap it as soon as we get into office, because it makes no sense. It will only add cost. That’s all.”A number of renewable energy farms and facilities form the thrust of Government’s goals in the GSDS. The Government plans to build a solar energy plant to the tune of US$3.8 million. The farm, to be funded by the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB), will be constructed at Bartica, Region Seven (Cuyuni-Mazaruni). It was indicated that construction of this farm would be completed by the end of 2018.Government has also secured funding from the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) to establish solar photovoltaic (PV) farms at Port Kaituma, Region One (Barima-Waini) at a cost of US$1.8 million; Kwakwani, Region 10 (Upper Demerara-Berbice) to the tune of US$2.6 million; and Matthews Ridge, Region One (Barima-Waini) at a cost of US$2 million. It has also secured a line of credit of approximately US$15 million.The Government has been heavily criticised for the GSDS that has been touted as a blueprint to developing a “green economy”. The Opposition has described the document as a hollow one. But with Government recently getting the green light to access funds from Norway for its renewable energy initiatives, questions remain over exactly what policy document was presented.last_img read more
