Espanyol – Athletic | A point that nobody fixes

first_imgIt was a Cornellà game full of urgencies and he only had to roll the ball so that they all saw each other on the grass. The urgency of a sunken Espanyol in the table, which is only worth adding three by three. The urgency of an Atlético who had seen how Sevilla won, how Real Sociedad won, how he should win if he did not want to finish the day outside the Champions League. The two collided on the grass like tectonic plates causing earthquakes on each play, each dispute and split ball.Neither team seemed to think clearly. The attacks were articulated in jaurías. Men throwing themselves on the opposing goals as if life were in them. They had not finished sitting the trainers on their benches when Correa in a corner forced Diego López to remove the mitt to avoid the goal. Espanyol’s response was immediate. The next minute first Wu Lei and then Bernardo looked for Atlético the tickle of the ball stopped. The two ran into Oblak. Felipe saw the yellow when the game took five minutes. Until ten there was no moment of respite. The two teams looking for each other with bare chest and all their wounds in the air, seeking to cauterize. Goals1-0, 23 ‘: Savic, 1-1, 46 ‘: Saul In the absence of David López and Marc Roca, Abelardo concreted the medium. Víctor Sánchez and Iturraspe and ball to Atlético. For the rojiblancos, creating is like trying to climb Everest without oxygen. A torture. And that in everything else was fine. He easily got rid of the good pressure of Espanyol with direct balls to Morata to plant himself at the gates of the Diego López area. But once there, the blindfold, night, nothing. And that was the main difference between the urgencies of Abelardo and Simeone. While one drags his goal problems through all the League fields, the other has Rdt. Amen. He didn’t need to touch a ball for the goal. His mere presence was enough.Abelardo was looking for tickle now in that band Carrasco-Lodi. Between Javi López and Wu Lei they made the hole to the Brazilian to send the ball to Raúl de Tomás that he should only try to finish off. Savic, trying to cut him, deposited the ball in his net. 1-0 Espanyol took the scream of Cornellà to football the last 24 hours. Yes you can. Since then there was only one team in Cornellà. The one at home, Espanyol. It was up to Oblak to hold an otherwise missing Atlético. The Espanyol I love and lord the marker and the grass. With ball but especially without ball. Rdt filling everything and become a mood. In that shout. Yes you can. The goalkeeper who wore yellow deflected a crossbar from Víctor Sánchez with his fingernails. And then another from Bernardo with his chest and a lack of Embarba. The red-and-white answer, a Chilean from Felipe, seemed fiery among so much fire. CardsReferee: Javier Alberola RojasVAR Referee: José María Sánchez MartínezFelipe Monteiro (5 ‘, Yellow) Embarba (37 ‘, Yellow) Thomas (41 ‘, Yellow) Koke (85 ‘, Yellow) Renan Augustus (88 ‘, Yellow) Victor Sanchez (89 ‘, Yellow) Javi Lopez (91 ‘, Yellowcenter_img First Saul, then return from CostaEverything changed as soon as the second part began. From it emerged the Saul of the great parties. The Cholo sewed the boot to the boot and sat down to watch. He only had to wait a minute: what it took Saul to stand on the front and send an unstoppable volley to Diego López’s network. His kiss on the wrist, his usual celebration, the Yes you can del Atleti: tracing, remaining Champions positions. The goal ripped the rojiblancos from the slab on top, Espanyol went out, Atlético was already leading all the attacks. Before the time João Félix entered by Carrasco to stay in the band and Correa at the tip. Ten minutes later, the 1-0 action flew over Cornellá as a deja vu, now starring Atleti. Ball from the side of João, Diego López throws himself to stop him, the ball hits him in the body and he cries to the net … Until bumping into the stick. Morata arrives before anyone else, the ball almost on the line, but instead of kicking without thinking, to the heart of the net, tried to decorate. What if the floor, if I put a tie, if they take it off, of course. On the next play he went to the bench. Costa was returning in the league. But this Coast no longer changes parties, moods. Wider, slower, less Coast, zero Beast. The reordering of the attack of the Cholo (his last man was Vitolo, by Correa) messed up his team. The game returned to its beginning, high pressure from Espanyol that did not find Rdt, disputes, intensity and the rojiblancos attacks always far from Diego López. Costa did not run to get out of the game, João’s races crashed into the rivals, Vitolo did it with himself. The oops with those who finished the game were parrots, there Bernardo. There were nerves, yellow and a point for both. A band aid that seems weak, little sew, too many urgencies. ChangesJoão Felix (55 ‘, Carrasco), Diego Costa (62 ‘, Morata), Vitolo (68 ‘, Belt), Jonathan Calleri (70 ‘, Wu Lei), Oscar Melendo (70 ‘, Iturraspe), Adrià Pedrosa (80 ‘, Embarba)last_img read more

Hamilton keeping close eye on F1’s meeting with teams

first_imgMercedes driver Lewis Hamilton of Britain gestures as he answers to reporters at the Formula One Bahrain International Circuit in Sakhir, Bahrain, Thursday, April 5, 2018. The Bahrain Formula One Grand Prix will take place here on Sunday. (AP Photo/Luca Bruno)SAKHIR, Bahrain — World champion Lewis Hamilton will keep a close eye on Formula One owner Liberty Media’s proposed talks with the teams on Friday because his next contract could be shaped by what happens.U.S.-owned Liberty took over after Bernie Ecclestone’s 40-year reign ended last year. F1’s managing director of motorsports Ross Brawn has the task Friday of presenting the ownership’s plans beyond 2020 when the current rules — known as the Concorde Agreement — expire.ADVERTISEMENT People’s champ Nurmagomedov vs Holloway in UFC title fight Conor McGregor seeks to emerge from controversy in UFC comeback “We can put (down) the (F1) qualifying order for this race right now and that’s a little bit sad.”Liberty also plans to reduce costs.“The biggest problem is there are so many people making the decisions. I’ve talked to people high up who have absolutely no idea what it means to be a racing driver, or a team, or a designer, and others that do understand it, like Ross,” Hamilton said.“At least they’ve got some people there who do understand it and hopefully we’ll move in the right direction.”Mercedes head of motorsport Toto Wolff said teams have a responsibility to try to overcome their differences in the face of a threat by Ferrari to quit.Ferrari chairman Sergio Marchionne is unhappy with the proposals to simplify engines and redistribute prize money.“Don’t mess with Sergio Marchionne,” Wolff said. “Formula One needs Ferrari much more than Ferrari needs Formula One.”F1 cars use 1.6-litre V6 turbo hybrid engines. According to media reports, F1 and governing body FIA agree on a simpler model which reduces costs. But this would impact on the hybrid system, which recovers energy from the turbo and makes Mercedes and Ferrari so powerful.Amid so many competing agendas, optimism is low.“Trying to get a consensus between teams that have varying objectives, different set-ups, is going to be impossible,” Red Bull team principal Christian Horner said. “It’s history repeating itself.” Drivers, who have minimal input, are also divided.If they could write down ideas on a blank sheet of paper, Hamilton said, “there would be some who say they’d like it futuristic like Formula E, and drivers like me who say they want a V12 (engine) and a manual gear box.”Danish driver Kevin Magnussen could not care less.“Liberty should just do their own research and not listen to the drivers,” he said. “Because drivers will just say what’s in their best interests.”Veteran Ferrari driver Kimi Raikkonen responded to the question with trademark indifference.“What’s the point for me, to give you a list, because in the end I have zero power?” he said. “We can’t, we don’t make the rules.”___Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next MOST READ Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

MURPHY WAS BORN TO CAPTAIN IRELAND – DUBS LEGEND ROCK

first_imgDublin GAA legend Barney Rock has said Michael Murphy was born to captain Ireland.Michael MurphyThe Glenswilly man has been named captain of the Irish compromise rules term to face Australia shortly.And Rock says that manager Paul Earley could not have made a better choice. “Murphy is the right man for the job for a number of reasons, but the most important is that he is built to thrive in the compromise game.“He has the size, the power and the ability to be Ireland best player over the two Tests,” said Rock.And the former All-Ireland winner says that Murphy would almost certainly have been a huge star if he had chosen to go Down Under and play Aussie Rules when given the opportunity a few years ago.“Physically and skill-set wise he is such a good fit for this, it was no surprise as a teenager that he was a top target of the AFL clubs. “You sense that if he had taken up that option he would have almost certainly have made it in that game.”Earley paid tribute to Jim McGuinness for sticking with Murphy and putting such responsibility on his young shoulders. MURPHY WAS BORN TO CAPTAIN IRELAND – DUBS LEGEND ROCK was last modified: October 5th, 2013 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Barney RockCompromise RulesMichael Murphylast_img read more

THIRD CHINESE NATIONAL ARRESTED IN €1M CANNABIS FIND PROBE

first_imgGARDAI have arrested a third man as part of their investigation into the seizure of more than €1M worth of cannabis near Malin yesterday.The third suspect was detained overnight.Garda experts are still at the scene of the warehouse, 3kms outside Malin Town. Two other Chinese nationals were arrested at the scene during a Garda raid yesterday.They were living on the site.Garda Superintendent Kevin English, who is leading the investigation, warned landlords to be responsible when leasing properties.“Where people have commercial premises for rent, we would ask them to have inspection clauses so that they know what their premises are being used for. “They need to be responsible and they need to ensure that they are being rent for lawful purposes,” he said.Supt English said he would not rule out the possibility that there is a paramilitary link to the find and confirmed they are liaising with the PSNI.Seized cannabis included everything from seeds to recently harvested plants.Sources say the raid was a result of “good police work” by community Gardai.It’s understood Gardai now believe the cannabis factory is part of a network of growhouses in Co Donegal and believe there may be more here in the county. Gardai are urging anyone who sees suspicious activity, particularly in rural areas where there are disused warehouses or outbuildings, to contact them immediately.They also believe the Chinese nationals are being forced to work in the growhouses by criminal gangs who are also involved in human trafficking.THIRD CHINESE NATIONAL ARRESTED IN €1M CANNABIS FIND PROBE was last modified: October 11th, 2012 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:THIRD CHINESE NATIONAL ARRESTED IN €1M CANNABIS FIND PROBElast_img read more

CAN YOU BELIEVE THESE DRESSES WERE MADE FROM JUNK?

first_imgTHEY are dresses which look as if they came out of a top London fashion house – but they are made entirely from trash!Four fourth year students from Loreto Community School Milford, Ciara Haley, Kate Haley, Seania Strain and Eilis Mc Clay have made it through to the regional finals of the recycled fashion competition ‘Junk Kouture’.And this is what they have come up with. They have designed two dresses called ‘The Fame Game’ and ‘No Glitz Just Glam’. They have been working on the dresses since September and have really pulled it out of the bag this year in terms of design. Both dresses are made out of 100% recycled materials. ‘The Fame Game’ is made out of old computer and television wires. It’s a dark, edgy, modern design. ‘No Glitz Just Glam’ is made out of foam packaging waste. It is the opposite a beautiful, white, glamorous, delicate design.Now the girls desperately need your help to reach the finals. An online vote will take place from now until midnight on Friday the 1st March. Everyone can vote once per day by going to www.junkkouture.com and using their email address.

Inspired by the ancient Roman gladiators! Inspired by Russell Crowe’s Gladiator performance! And inspired by a gorgeous Mad Max Mel Gibson!Inspired by men… but only to show the world the power and beauty of a modern seductress gladiator. The materials used in creation this battledress come from all around the house, from garages and sheds, from the everyday world where we all live and where this kind of exquisite female strength and beauty is hidden. The ingredients include heavy duty plastic used for laying the roads; old leather belts and bags; long-forgotten jewellery and watches that stopped before most of us were even born; bits of old farm machinery, and a creative college of screws and bolts, of feathers, of foam wire and mesh!We wanted to focus on the old-fashioned man’s world to find our inspiration. And we have created the perfect female battle armour. Beautiful to look at, with incredible strength, created from almost nothing. And how did we add spice to our ingredients? We threw in a dash of Versace’s spring collection 2013 which features a dress that is strong, bold and entices woman to unleash their warrior!This Junk Kouture creation was inspired by Alice in Wonderland’s magical world of our childhood adventures. Under the duvet Alice in Wonderland’s magical universe was painted in magical colours in all our little heads. And Tim Burton took these magical images from our consciousness and created a cinematic masterpiece of images and colour.Creating a magical reality from the world of childhood’s imagination was the spark that ignited the desire to make my dreams come to artistic life. This kind of styles is what drove us into the creativity of Tim Burton’s Alice. The sleeves have too many bows to make sense, and their colours clash and merge and try to outdo each other. And the rainbow ruffle is even bigger and better, even more magical. The zips hold the dress together, suggesting safety… but this safety is only a stepping stone into the deeper world of fashionagination.

‘COME OUT AND SUPPORT THE GIRLS’ SAYS LADIES FOOTBALL MANAGER DAVY

first_imgGeraldine: Missing from the action this weekendARMAGH will be slight favourites against Donegal’s Ladies on Sunday – but the roar of some extra Donegal fans might just swing things our way.With the Minors and Senior Men playing at Clones earlier in the day, a quick jaunt up the road to Lisnaskea will hopefully entice football fans to go and support the Senior Ladies in their Ulster Championship semi-final clash with the Orchard County (throw-in at 5pm).“Both sides will be in Division 2 of the league next year,” says Donegal manager Davy McLaughlin. “We were relegated from Division 1 having lost all the games, whilst Armagh were promoted from Division 3 having won all of theirs, so they are probably slight favourites because of that; they’ve been winning.“But we’ve come a long way in a short time. I’m there 10 or 11 weeks and we’re going to give it a good go. We’ll throw everything at it.”A few extra supporters from Tir Chonaill might help.“I was delighted with the slot and venue; it means fans leaving Clones can stop off in Lisnaskea, get a bite to eat and come and support the Ladies,” says Davy. He has lost some well-known players for various reasons “but we’ve planned for most of those” says the Moville man.Therese McCafferty and Roisín Friel are in America on holidays.He knew he’d be without Geraldine McLaughlin after a cartilage operation, but has also now lost her sister Nicole to a hamstring injury. His own daughter Niamh will be missing as she’s still at college in Britain.“I saw Armagh beat Tyrone and they beat them well, so they’re a good team,” says Davy.“But we’re going to go in and give it a go. If fans from Clones come along and get behind the girls, it might give us that wee edge and get us to an Ulster final.” ‘COME OUT AND SUPPORT THE GIRLS’ SAYS LADIES FOOTBALL MANAGER DAVY was last modified: June 21st, 2014 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:armaghdonegal ladiesFootballUlster semi-final clashlast_img read more
