Inter Milan star Fredy Guarin Manchester United and Liverpool target Fredy Guarin might still leave Inter Milan this window for a non-European side.The transfer windows in both Russian and Turkey are still open so sides like Zenit St Petersburg, managed by former Tottenham boss Andre Villas-Boas, and Galatasaray can still sign the Colombia man.Guarin had hoped to secure a move to England, especially to Louis van Gaal’s side where he could link up with international team-mate Radamel Falcao.But both United and Brendan Rodgers passed on the option to sign the midfielder and he could now secure himself a highly lucrative move to one of the nations that still have until September 6th to complete any transfer deals.Guarin and Villas-Boas worked together at Porto and the former Chelsea boss has kept in close contact with his former player, even guiding him to Inter before he became unsettled at the Serie A side. 1

PROUD Donegal manager Jim McGuinness has paid tribute to his team for bouncing back – after being written off by the pundits.The Glenties man joined the Seniors and Minors in the traditional reception back in The Diamond in Donegal Town last night as the players and the fans partied into the wee small hours.And right they were – so many new milestones in the remarkable Donegal man that is Jim McGuinness. First time ever that Donegal won both Seniors and Minors in the same year; and a first victory over Monaghan since 1983. “We were absolutely wrote off a week out from the Derry match and we’re Ulster champions today.” said Jim, defiant, and happy.“I think it’s our best victory in terms of the questions that were being asked of us and what was being said about us, and had the boys got the stomach for it. I think they proved they have. I think it’s our best victory because of the circumstances and because what surrounded it.“The boys weren’t going to come off that field beaten. That was the key thing for us.”Anyone who thought McGuinness was getting complacent about the big occasion would have had that knocked out of them as Jim bounded child-like across the pitch after yesterday’s victory to cheer and hug his heroes, men who are “an absolute privilege to work with”. “I am just so proud of them. They are immense to work with. Their focus is unbelievable. Their energy, their work-rate and their commitment to Donegal.”It was a tense and tough game in Clones as Monaghan attempted to bully Donegal off the pitch. Late challenges and several off-the-ball challenges disrupted the game.But it was fascinating to watch; and brilliant to see Man of the Match Ryan McHugh bounding up the wing, big Neil Gallagher catch the ball so high he should have been wearing an oxygen mask.Patrick McBrearty and Darrach O’Connor were superb; and Karl Lacey his usual sublime self.The bridge in Pettigo saw more silverware over it last night; and then on to The Diamond in Donegal Town. These are special nights. Donegal have won just eight Ulster titles in a century; three have been in the last four years.The players were once again brilliant with the fans on their return, captain Michael Murphy meeting and greeting as many fans as possible.And he for one is hoping this year isn’t the last with Jim McGuinness at the helm.“We want him here for many more years to come,” said the Glenswilly man.

23 April 2014 After winning the IRB Junior World Championship in 2012 and finishing third in 2013, the Junior Springboks will be one of the favourites to lift the title when the tournament takes place in New Zealand from 2 to 22 June. The squad, announced on Tuesday, includes a number of players with Super Rugby experience, and other players with previous experience of the Junior World Cup. Handre Pollard (Vodacom Bulls), Andre Esterhuizen (Cell C Sharks), Sergeal Petersen and Aidon Davis (Southern Kings), and Malcolm Marx (Lions) have all either played Vodacom Super Rugby or have been part of their respective franchise’s Super Rugby training groups.Win over New Zealand The squad also sees the return of several players who did duty for the South African under-20s in France last year, where they claimed the bronze medal after defeating New Zealand in the playoff for third. Pollard, who also starred in the 2012 tournament, Davis and Jesse Kriel all played for the Junior Boks in 2013. Winger Petersen, who made an impressive Super Rugby debut for the Kings last year by scoring several stunning tries, was also included in the squad but missed the trip to France because of a hamstring injury.Selection South Africa under-20 coach Dawie Theron and the national selectors, Peter Jooste and Ian McIntosh, selected the 28-man squad following an intensive identification and trials process. More than 50 players attended the training camp, which ran for almost three weeks in Stellenbosch and included two trial matches as well as several training games. The Junior World Cup squad returned to their training base in Stellenbosch on Tuesday to continue their preparations for the tournament, which will include a three-match international series against traditional rivals Argentina from 2 to 10 May in the Western Cape.Weather conditions Theron said the weather and playing conditions in New Zealand, as well as a tough pool draw, will contribute to a challenging competition. “Our players are used to dry and fast fields and we will encounter the opposite of these conditions in New Zealand,” he explained in a statement. “These were obvious factors we had to take into account when selecting the squad. “We will now intensify our preparations. The series against Argentina will give us an ideal opportunity to test our game plan, readiness and decision-making against a very competitive team and in real match situations.” Twins There are two sets of twin brothers in the squad, Jean-Luc and Daniel du Preez, the sons of former Springbok scrumhalf Robert du Preez, and Jesse and Dan Kriel. In 2013, the Du Preez’s older brother, Robert, played flyhalf for the SA under-20s. Jean-Luc du Plessis is also the son of a former Springbok. His father is Carel du Plessis, who also served as Springbok coach in 1997.Junior Springboks 2014 JWC fixtures2 June: SA vs Scotland (North Harbour)6 June: SA vs New Zealand (North Harbour)10 June: SA vs Samoa (Pukekohe) 15 June: Playoffs (Tbc)20 June: Finals (Auckland)
Essential Reading! Get my first book: The Only Sale Guide You’ll Ever Need “The USA Today bestseller by the star sales speaker and author of The Sales Blog that reveals how all salespeople can attain huge sales success through strategies backed by extensive research and experience.” Buy Now Everyone wants leads. Specifically, they want ready-to-buy leads. Selling is easy when your prospective client is trying to buy. If the leads come from marketing, whether it be traditional or inbound doesn’t matter. What makes leads attractive is the fact that they come to you. You don’t have to start from nothing.Targets are different. They’re anything but ready-to-buy. When you target your dream client accounts, there is a high probability that they already have a partner who helps them with the outcomes you’d like to provide. What makes targets unattractive is that they are not delivered to you.Targets are better than most of the leads you will ever receive. You know that they’re qualified and that they spend in your category. If they’re dream clients, you know that what you sell is strategic, and something your target values because it is necessary to their strategy or business model. Because what you would provide them is important, it’s likely that your target cares enough about it to improve their outcomes, allowing you to create opportunities, even if it takes time. More still, when they choose a partner, they tend to be very loyal–as long as that partner continues to deliver new value.Leads are attractive because you believe they’re interested–even when they’re not. The fact that they raised their hand (or clicked a link that you choose to believe suggests an interest), is no indication as to the value of the lead. Some will be very good, most will be something less.If you are provided leads, you still need targets. Whatever time you invest in the leads you are provided needs to be matched with an equal or greater commitment to pursuing your targets, your dream clients. The Gods of Prospecting smile on salespeople who take action and punish those who wait.
