He brought his Chinese nightmare to a premature end when he returned to Boca Juniors earlier this month and on Monday joked with Argentine television channel TyC Sports: “It’s fine because I was on holiday for seven months.”That prompted an outpouring of anger on Chinese social media, with fans of a number of Chinese Super League (CSL) clubs rounding on the man often disparagingly labelled “very homesick boy” in the Asian country.“Football hooligan, please get your arse out and never return to China again. Scum,” wrote one on Weibo, China’s equivalent of Twitter.“I wonder if there is anyone more shameless than him,” added another.Tevez missed half of Shenhua’s CSL games injured, out of form or out of shape, and when he did play he failed to justify his hefty pay cheque, scoring just four league goals.As well as hitting out at Tevez, whose previous clubs include Manchester United, Manchester City and Juventus, Chinese fans also said Shenhua should take same of the blame.“After looking at Tevez’s interview my heart as a Chinese football fan is again deeply hurt,” wrote another on Weibo.“While we are chasing Tevez like a rat crossing the street, China’s (football) managers should also do some good self-reflection.”In contrast, Tevez has been warmly welcomed back for his third stint at Boca and has a supporter in Argentine great Diego Maradona.“He filled Santa’s sack with dollars and came back to Boca,” Maradona was quoted as saying by Argentine TV earlier this month.Shenhua, who are keen to draw a line under the Tevez fiasco, declined to comment.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img

UK: HMS Monmouth Holds Fire-Exercise on Patrol

first_imgPlymouth based warship HMS Monmouth conducted a major engine-space fire exercise to keep self-protection skills fresh mid-way through its seven-month security patrol of the Arabian Gulf.Back at sea and on operations after a two-week ‘pit-stop’ of essential maintenance and well-deserved rest and recuperation in Dubai, HMS Monmouth, has got stuck into the operational tempo that has dictated the pace of the deployment thus far, including highly realistic emergency exercises.The ship regularly practises simulated incidents, from fast-boat attack to internal fires and floods.  This ensures that the crew is prepared to deal with any emergency.  However, with the ship being on patrol the exercises have added urgency and relevance.As soon as the ship left Dubai controlled ‘mayhem’ was already being instigated by the exercise umpires as they started a main engine space fire exercise to test the emergency response teams.  Exercise smoke quickly filled the vast compartment, making it almost impossible for the fire-fighters to see, while ventilation was crash stopped and the temperature started to rise.Chief Petty Office Dave Coleman, an exercise organiser, said:“Every member of the ship’s company is trained to fight and extinguish fires, whether it is from a minor incident to a major fire onboard which requires more manpower and highly trained techniques to be employed.“The objectives of the main machinery space fire exercise are to test the ship’s standard operating procedures for tackling a major fire at sea, to train and test all members of the ship’s company in advanced fire-fighting drills and to introduce new crew members to the ship’s damage-control organisation in order to maintain operational capability outside of the Flag Officer Sea Training environment.”The fire fighters were supported by first-aiders, marine engineers and communicators.  This evolution highlighted the importance of everyone in the team playing their part in keeping the ship on station.[mappress]Naval Today Staff, March 6, 2013; Image: Royal Navy UK: HMS Monmouth Holds Fire-Exercise on Patrol View post tag: Monmouth View post tag: HMS Share this article View post tag: News by topic Back to overview,Home naval-today UK: HMS Monmouth Holds Fire-Exercise on Patrol View post tag: Fire-Exercise Training & Educationcenter_img View post tag: holds View post tag: Naval March 6, 2013 View post tag: Navy View post tag: Defense View post tag: Defence View post tag: Patrollast_img
