Aston Villa manager Remi Garde insists he has not given up on Premier League survival - but concedes that it may be mission impossible to avoid relegation. Villa are rooted to the foot of the table, having lost five games in a row. They are nine points from safety with eight matches remaining ahead of this weekends trip to Swansea City on Saturday Night Football.Garde told The Birmingham Mail: I am not stupid. Its an impossible mission that we have to make possible. You never know in football. Garde says the Villa fans need to get behind the team as they battle for survival We need to win games - at home or away, it doesnt matter. We are in an urgent situation. Its always difficult to know what will happen in the game. It will be very tight, probably with a lot of tension. They [Swansea] also need points.I still believe. I have said that since the first day. I am focused on saving the club from relegation. From the time when things are certain, you can say we are in that league or this league. I am focused on the next game. I am not speculating. Villa have lost their last five games as fan discontent has grown Villa were last relegated from the top flight in 1987 and Garde insists the whole squad must continue to believe they can avoid demotion. He added on Sky Sports News HQ: Of course we do have the obligation to believe but its not just an obligation it is something that should be inside every player, inside myself too. Of course we are in a very bad period with five defeats but we have a very important game which is always difficult because even if Swansea are not in the best position they are in a far better position than us. It will be a very tough game. Also See: Garde: Villa will fight on Sporting director leaves Villa Villa video Villa fixtures Villa stats Get a ￡10 free bet! Grant Hill Jersey .

The mascot for the Paralympics is a mopped-headed doll with leafy hair, meant to represent the vast diversity of the flora in Brazil.The mascots made their first official appearance on Monday at a school in the Santa Teresa neighbourhood, which is a mix of precarious slums and homes for millionaires. The school is named for former International Olympic Committee President Juan Antonio Samaranch.Their purpose is to delight and engage the audience, particularly the children, Carlos Nuzman, head of the Rio organizing committee, said of the mascots. In addition, the mascots will always be remembered by the people.A public poll will be conducted to name the two from a shortlist of possibilities. The possibilities for the Olympic mascot are: Oba, Tiba Tuque and Vinicius The choice for the Paralympic mascots are: Eba, Esquindim and Tom. They must be voted on in pairs: Oba and Eba, Tiba Tuque and Esquindim, and Vinicius and Tom.Votes for the names can be cast on the organizing committees website and Twitter feed. The winning names will be announced on Dec. 14.The cuddly, cartoon-like mascots are also big business.Organizers hope that Olymmpic merchandise, much of it carrying the mascot logo, will generate sales of 1 billion reals ($400 million).ddddddddddddThe organizing committee will receive about 15-20 per cent of the sales of branded merchandise, with the rest going to licensed manufacturers and vendors.Income from merchandising makes up a chunk of the $3 billion operating budget. Half of that budget is to come from the sale of local sponsorships.The Olympic merchandising campaign will comprise about 12,000 products aimed mostly at children. About 90 per cent of sales are expected from the domestic market.Our mascots represent the diversity of our people, our way of life and our natural environment, said Beth Lula, the organizing committees brand director.Olympic officials expect the mascot to represent 25 per cent of merchandising sales.The mascot for this years World Cup in Brazil — an armadillo named Fuleco — generated little interest. Some blamed this on pre-World Cup protests, and repeated delays and distractions in preparing venues.In addition to the operating budget, Rio is spending about $20 billion in a mix of private and public money to prepare sports venues and urban infrastructure. Brazil spent about $15 billion on the World Cup.___On the Web: www.rio2016.com/mascotesTwitter: @Rio2016.__Stephen Wade on Twitter: http://twitter.com/StephenWadeAP Cheap Nike Buccaneers Jerseys Cheap Nike Packers Jerseys Cheap Nike Vikings Jerseys Cheap Nike Lions Jerseys Cheap Nike Colts Jerseys Cheap Nike Texans Jerseys Cheap Nike Jaguars Jerseys Cheap Nike Dolphins Jerseys Cheap Nike Patriots Jerseys Cheap Nike Jets Jerseys Cheap Nike Browns Jerseys Cheap Nike Broncos Jerseys Cheap Nike Chiefs Jerseys Cheap Nike Bengals Jerseys Cheap Nike Steelers Jerseys Cheap Nike Titans Jerseys ' ' '
