  • Europa League - Slaven Bilic: I meant no disrespect

    Having been appointed on June 9, Bilic watched from the stands with academy director Terry Westley overseeing a 3-0 first-leg victory as the Hammers got their season under way just 39 days after the end of the last campaign. Bilic, 46, was presented to a sold-out Upton Park before the game before moving to the directors' box having flown over from a training camp in Ireland with those senior players not involved in the Europa League fixture. Lusitans coach Xavi Roura was not happy with Bilic's decision not to take charge of West Ham - saying he was saddened that his counterpart was not on the bench - claiming the Croatian thought he was the 'Special One' and that Lusitans were "not important enough" for Bilic.

  • Ryanair to move Copenhagen-based aircraft after court ruling

    Ryanair will move its one Copenhagen-based aircraft out of the country following a court ruling that airport staff in the Danish capital had the right to refuse to service its flights, the Irish airline said on Friday. Europe's largest low-cost airline's policy of employing people in countries such as Denmark under the less generous terms of Ireland, rather than local rules, has incurred the anger of Danish labour unions. The unions demanded that Ryanair sign a Danish collective agreement with its locally-based pilots and cabin crew.

  • The Latest: Fund: Greek default to spark severe consequences

    The European Financial Stability Fund said Friday it considered Greece's failure to cover a 1.6 billion-euro ($1.8 billion) repayment this week to the International Monetary Fund to be an "Event of Default" that allows the EFSF to activate a loan repayment demand. Top banking officials in Greece are meeting with Finance Minister Yanis Varoufakis, Deputy Prime Minister Yannis Dragasakis and Alternate Finance Minister Dimitris Mardas. A finance ministry official says the meeting is being attended by the deputy governor of the Bank of Greece and the managing directors or presidents of the country's five largest lenders: Piraeus Bank, Alpha Bank, Eurobank, Attica Bank and National Bank of Greece as well as the secretary general of the Greek banking association.

  • Honeymoon is over for Greek couple who went penniless in NYC

    Newlyweds Valasia Limnioti and Konstantinos Patronis' long-planned "dream trip" to the U.S. ended in New York City, where their three-week honeymoon quickly turned into a nightmare: Their Greek-issued credit and debit cards were suddenly declined and they were left penniless. The couple skipped a few meals before spending their last dollars on dinner at McDonald's. Strangers from two Greek Orthodox churches in the city's Queens borough came to the rescue, giving them survival cash until their flight home to Greece on Friday. In Greece, they generally pay in cash, which is preferred by businesses, but they were told to have cards for the U.S.

  • Wimbledon - BBC’s ‘disastrous’ new 'Wimbledon 2day' show comes under fire - fairly?

    Well, for a start it seems most tennis fans enjoyed the reliably straightforward previous format of ‘Today at Wimbledon’, hosted by John Inverdale, which simply sought to show working people highlights of the matches they missed through the day with room for expert analysis from the likes of John McEnroe. ‘We just want to watch some tennis after a long day at work’, was the consistent feedback from fans on social media, only that has now been re-worded in a much more negative manner after the seemingly unwelcome arrival of ‘Wimbledon 2day’. ‘Dumbed down’ and full of gimmicks, ‘Wimbledon 2day’ attempts to incorporate quirky skits and fan interaction with the chatty show played out in front of a live audience of fans who are made to stand in The Gatsby Club (one of Wimbledon’s hospitality suites) clutching drinks and trying to catch the camera’s eye over McEnroe’s shoulder.
