Aug 16 2021 Share

Transport Malta have reportedly taken a step back from the Marsascala yacht marina following backlash towards the controversial plans from a significant number of parties.

The government body stated that, despite the impression given by some, the plans for not finalised and the ‘Pre-Qualification Questionnaire’ (PPQ) was solely an early-stage call for anyone expressing interest to develop the marina.

Opposition leader Bernard Grech praised the pressure made by residents, the local council and NGOs and stated that the Nationalist party will make an effort to consult residents and keep the environment in mind when considering any investments into the village.

The statement went on to say that the decision for a Marascala marina was taken back in 2006, with a local plan through policy SMMS 04.

This weekend English football returned to normality as stadiums could be filled up once again. Fans from all around the country were seen in stadiums whether it was Brentford’s 17,250-seater stadium or Manchester United’s Old Trafford where up to 76,000 people can get in.

  Many games took place but some were more special than others. This match week marked Brentford’s return to top flight football. Their last game in England’s highest division was on the 26th of May 1947, so it was nice to see Brentford play and beat Arsenal at their new ground in their first ever Premier League game. The Bee’s fans couldn’t stop singing and celebrating, one moment of coach Thomas Frank celebrating with a young fan went viral.

Manchester United fans also had a warm welcome, as a crowd of 72,000 watched the Red Devils dismantle their old rivals Leeds 5-1.  United fans weren’t the only happy fan base, as Totthenham’s incredible atmosphere resulted in a narrow 1-0 victory over champions Manchester City.

Floriana condemn racist supporter

Aug 16 2021 Share

Last Saturday Floriana began their season, playing against Santa Lucia. The game ended in a 2-2 stalemate, but racist abuse by one particular fan towards new Santa Lucia keeper Julani Archibald was present. Floriana have officially released a statement stating their disapproval of this particular fan’s behavior.

The game started off with a shock Santa Lucia goal in the 20th minute. Floriana waited quite a while to score their season opener, until the 51st minute when goal scorer Kristian Keqi converted a penalty. Santa Lucia clearly missed their lead, as Francisco Farias  scored their and his  second goal of the game, only a minute after Floriana’s penalty. The game ended up in a draw when Daniel Agius equalized for the greens in the 71st minute.

What should have been a memorable outing for the Greens, having their fans back for the first time ended up in a disappointing result and abuse from fans.
