Villarreal, collateral damage of the Braithwaite case and the RFEF

first_imgIn Villarreal it was interesting that Bacca had a rhythm of competition, first not to spoil the rest of the course and, second, not to devalue the player in case of a summer sale. It also happens that the player himself considered the Leganés offer good for providing minutes that allowed him to have options to play the Copa América, one of his fundamental objectives beyond LaLiga. LaLiga Santander* Data updated as of March 5, 2020 LaLiga Santander* Data updated as of March 5, 2020 That is why, when the RFEF communicated its decision to the Leganés, in La Cerámica they also shared regret with the Blue and Whites. Now all parties feel hurt. The Leganés, for not having lost a key piece without being able to resist and without finding replacement. Villarreal, for not being able to give minutes to Bacca and the player himself, for resigning himself to having a secondary role in the lack of season.center_img Although Bacca’s salary is high (around two million euros net per campaign), the Lega was willing to assume it from here at the end of the season on a loan that they received as an unexpected gift at La Cerámica. The arrival of Paco Alcácer and the hatching of Fer Niño have placed Bacca as the front quarter. His playing options are scarce. The refusal of the Spanish Federation (RFEF) that the Leganés sign a replacement for Martín Braithwaite has had side effects on his next rival. Villarreal also feels affected by a decision that, had it been favorable to the people of Madrid, would have allowed him to leave Carlos Bacca. As As said, the agreement for the transfer of the Colombian was absolute. There was even consensus that on Sunday he could play in the blue and white ceramic dress, with no clause of fear that prevented him. What has now transpired is that, in that pact, Villarreal himself had a lot to do, eager for his striker to enjoy minutes and not be devalued by the end of the season.Sources close to the dialogue consulted by As have confirmed that it was the Yellow Submarine that initially suggested the possibility of letting the Colombian out in the poll that the Leganés was doing to find a striker. The pickles, obviously, welcomed the idea.last_img read more

Cops to help make Special Olympics great

first_img“We don’t take the tips of the regular waiting staff, only any extra tips customers want to give us for the kids,” said Bush, a sales engineer when he’s not on patrol as a reserve officer. You may remember one of his reserve LAPD officers who will be there – Bobby Sherman, a TV actor and pop singing sensation back in the 1970s. “I was fortunate to keep the money I made in show business and manage it well so I could do something in life I really love,” said Sherman, who now lives in Van Nuys. A trained emergency medical technician since 1988, Sherman has been an LAPD reserve officer for 18 years. “I was not about to sit on my hands and do nothing,” Sherman said. “Serving the community and helping great organizations, like Special Olympics, is a heck of a lot more important and fulfilling than being a teen idol.” Dennis McCarthy’s column appears Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Sunday.

You’re all set! “There is no charge to any athlete who wants to compete in Special Olympics. The money all comes from the community, from individuals and groups like these law enforcement officers who open their hearts and give us their time so our kids can win an Olympic medal,” Maseda said. Los Angeles Police Department Reserve Officer David Bush still remembers sitting in the stands a few years ago and watching the Special Olympics opening ceremonies. “It was one of the most moving, beautiful events I’d ever witnessed, and I knew the men and women I serve with would feel the same way,” said Bush, who is in charge of the LAPD’s 641 reserve officers. Many of his reserves, along with FBI agents and sworn officers from the LAPD, California Highway Patrol and California State University, Northridge – more than 100 of them – will be working during Tip-A-Cop Night. They’ll be waiting tables, but also spending as much time as possible talking with diners about the importance of Special Olympics. The 750 special-needs kids who will be competing in the upcoming Tri-Valley Region Special Olympics at Birmingham High School already know the importance of those big hearts behind the badges, Jan Maseda says. They know that without Tip-A-Cop Night on Thursday, there would be no way their families and friends could afford to put on a full-scale competition, complete with aquatic, basketball, tennis and track-and-field events. No way they’d be marching into the Birmingham High stadium, their faces illuminated with smiles that elate – and break – your heart. “It cost us $10,000 for the games last year, and $8,000 of that came from law enforcement officers who raised the money serving as waiters and waitresses for Tip-A-Cop Night,” said Maseda, director of the San Fernando Valley Region for Special Olympics, Southern California. last_img read more

Vickery – QPR should forget about Ronaldinho move, they don’t need him!

first_imgQueens Park Rangers shouldn’t even consider a move for unfit Brazil legend Ronaldinho, according to talkSPORT’s South American football expert Tim Vickery.Rangers boss Harry Redknapp is rumoured to be plotting a shock swoop for the former Barcelona man, who is a free agent following the termination of his contract with Brazilian outfit Atletico Mineiro.Ronaldinho is thought to be weighing his options before deciding his next move, with the Super Hoops just one of the many teams across the world vying for the global star’s signature.But Vickery believes the World Cup winner would struggle to make an impact in what will be a crucial Premier League season for the newly promoted side.He told Kick Off: “A number of clubs from a number of different countries are being tossed around as destinations for Ronaldinho.“Major League Soccer in the United States is probably the front runner, Besiktas in Turkey have chased him for some time, but the name of Queens Park Rangers has also come up.“But it’s very difficult to envisage Ronaldinho moving there.“I don’t think there is anyone out there who has followed his form in recent years that believes he could really make a difference in the Premier League these days.“It’s sad to say because he’s a football genius, born with unbelievable talent, but he has betrayed that talent over the past eight years and I don’t think he’s really fit enough to be of much use to QPR.“It’s a vital season for them as they seek to consolidate their place in the Premier League, and they really don’t need a passenger at this time.”last_img read more

Worst summer deadline day signing ever? Man United, Liverpool and Arsenal transfers all feature

first_img 3) Javier Mascherano: Corinthians to West Ham United – 2006 – Click the arrow for more – Signing with fellow Argentine Carlos Tevez on the final day of the 2006 window, Javier Mascherano’s controversial move from Corinthians to West Ham turned out to be a disaster for both parties. Spending only six months at the east London side, the midfielder made a handful of appearances after manager Alan Pardew strangely preferred midfielder Hayden Mullins to the international star. Mascherano’s misery at West Ham was soon over as he completed a move to Liverpool, before signing for Barcelona and winning every club trophy imaginable. 7 7 7 7 7) Robinho: Real Madrid to Manchester City – 2008 – Click the arrow to see which signing is number six – Upon buying Man City in 2008, Sheik Mansour’s first action was to break the British transfer record by signing Brazilian attacker Robinho from Real Madrid for £33m in a huge show of intent. Although his stats weren’t too bad – 16 goals in 48 appearances – the Brazilian’s attitude was a major problem. Saying Manchester was “an awful place to live”, he failed to adapt to life in England and his career at City lasted just two years before manager Roberto Mancini moved him on. 7 1) Xisco: Deportivo La Coruna to Newcastle United – 2008 – Costing Newcastle a reported £7m in 2008, Xisco had been labeled a hot prospect and a player for the future by the Spanish media after a successful season with Deportivo. He seemed to leave that potential in Spain though, and over the course of his four years at Newcastle, he was sent out on loan twice, and by the time he left St James’ Park in 2013, Xisco had made just nine league appearances for the Magpies, scoring one goal. 4) Michael Owen: Real Madrid to Newcastle United – 2005 – Click the arrow for more – Returning to England from sunny Spain, Michael Owen joined Newcastle for £17m in the summer of 2005, hoping to get his England career back on track. Scoring 30 goals in 79 appearances for the Magpies, each goal cost Newcastle £1.2m, while each appearance eventually cost chairman Freddy Shepherd a sizable £455,000. Rocked by injuries, Owen’s last season for the Magpies saw him play 30 games and score ten goals as Newcastle were relegated from the Premier League in 2009. center_img 5) Marouane Fellaini: Everton to Manchester United – 2013 – Click the arrow for more – Following David Moyes from Everton to United, Fellaini signed for just under £28m last summer. Having just enjoyed a brilliant campaign at Goodison Park, scoring 12 goals and guiding the club to a sixth place finish, his first season at Old Trafford was one to forget. In 16 appearances, he scored no goals and the United fans are yet to warm to the Belgian international. 7 It’s over, the transfer window is closed until January.Many clubs were busy right up until the 11pm deadline as they sought to bring in extra quality.However, last minute shopping rarely goes well and as can be seen above, even the biggest clubs have been guilty of howlers in the market.Click the arrow on the right to see seven previous transfer deadline flops and let us know which of the latest signings will be a hit and who will be a miss. 2) Paul Konchesky: Fulham to Liverpool – 2010 – Click the arrow for more – Moving to Merseyside to once again work with former Fulham manager Roy Hodgson, Paul Konchesky’s switch to Liverpool wasn’t the most exciting news Kopites had hoped for. Playing just 15 times for the Redmen, Konchesky’s career seemed to be over as soon as Hodgson was sacked and replaced by Kenny Dalglish in January 2011. He was then sent out on loan to Nottingham Forest before finally being sold to Leicester City in the summer. 6) Mesut Ozil: Real Madrid to Arsenal – 2013 – Click the arrow to see which signing is number five – Smashing Arsenal’s record transfer fee, £42.5m man Mesut Ozil came to north London after a fantastic season with Real Madrid on the final day of last summer’s transfer window. His debut year in England however proved less fruitful, with Ozil still unable to fully justify the amount spent on him after a number of poor performances for the Gunners. Out-muscled often and seemingly showing a lack of interest in games, the World Cup winner needs to rediscover his Madrid form to help the club win more trophies. 7 getty last_img read more

European Union ‘not optimistic’ about avoiding no-deal Brexit

first_imgThe top Brexit negotiator for the European Union has said he was not optimistic about avoiding a no-deal scenario before October 31. Michel Barnier said the EU could not meet Britain’s demands that the backstop is removed from the Withdrawal Agreement.Writing in the Sunday Telegraph, Michel Barnier said that the backstop had to stay to protect the integrity of the EU’s single market, while ensuring an open border on the island of Ireland. “I am not optimistic about avoiding a no-deal scenario, but we should all continue to work with determination,” Mr Barnier said, according to extracts of his article on the newspaper’s front page.“The backstop is the maximum amount of flexibility that the EU can offer to a non-member state.”British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has vowed to take Britain out of the EU with or without a deal on 31 October. Opposition MPs plan to act next week to stop a hard Brexit in parliament.Writing in the same newspaper, Mr Johnson’s de facto deputy Michael Gove said that to remove the option of a no-deal Brexit on 31 October would “diminish” the “chances of securing changes” to the Brexit deal that could get it passed through parliament. Meanwhile, Britain’s Shadow Brexit spokesperson has said that Mr Johnson is not making any attempt to reach a Brexit deal with the EU.Speaking on the BBC’s Andrew Marr Show, Keir Starmer said that if a no-deal Brexit is reached by the 31 October deadline, an extension would be needed.He did not give any timeframe for how long any proposed extension should be.He said proposed legislation brought by opposition MPs this week was “almost certainly” the last chance to stop a no-deal Brexit.Mr Starmer said any proposed legislation to stop a no-deal Brexit would need to be simple and straightforward aimed at making sure it was avoided, but would not give details as to what exactly would be included in the bill He said the current situation was being forced on them by Mr Johnson, who he said had no mandate to leave without a deal.European Union ‘not optimistic’ about avoiding no-deal Brexit was last modified: September 1st, 2019 by Staff WriterShare 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)last_img read more

Former champs on song ahead of the Dusi

first_img7 January 2014Dusi Canoe Marathon title hopefuls Lance Kime and Thulani Mbanjwa kicked off the new year in winning fashion on Sunday when they cantered to victory in the Popes Canoe Centre Alan Gardiner Memorial Challenge.The Dusi Canoe Marathon, which was first contested in 1951, is one of the world’s largest canoe marathons. It covers 120 kilometres between Pietermaritzburg and Durban and alternates between a singles (K1) and doubles (K2) race.A Dusi seeding race, the Popes Canoe Centre Alan Gardiner Memorial Challenge was contested in tough, desperately low conditions on the mid-uMngeni River from Ibis Point to Dip Tank.Former Dusi winnersKime (Best 4 Healthcare/Euro Steel) and Mbanjwa (Build it) are both former Dusi champions, with Kime having won the title in a K1 last year and Mbanjwa having teamed up with Mertin Dreyer to take the K2 title in 2008. Not surprisingly, they are considered potential winners of February’s iconic three-day race.On Sunday they took to the water in the hope of getting further race practice and valuable time in the boat together under their belts and, after finishing well over a minute ahead of Computershare Change a Life Academy’s Lucas Mthalane and Mmeli Cele, they achieved just that.‘Nice to win’“It’s always nice to win a race, especially with this one have being a Dusi seeding race,” Kime said with satisfaction afterwards. “It would have been nice to have the two other crews there but even so it’s always great to get the confidence up.“It’s great to have so many pre-races before Dusi and to be getting a couple of good results, especially at this stage of our build up to Dusi, is great,” he added.“The closer you get to Dusi the more you read into results and the last thing you want is a few bad results to play on your mind, so these few good performances we’ve had in the smaller races I definitely think have served us well and given our confidence a bit of a boost.”After seeing Sbonelo Zondi (Euro Steel) and his fill-in partner Carl Folscher charge to the front of the field early on and lead the race until the Nqumeni Hill portage, Kime and Mbanjwa worked hard on the tough run and managed to put in ahead of their challengers.‘Blockage’It was far from a done deal at that stage though. “Sbonelo and Carl caught us again at Big Bend and we paddled together right up to the headwaters of the dam where we had to deal with a big hyacinth blockage,” Kime continued.“We each took different lines on the portage and it was there that we managed to get ahead of the others, and from then on we held the lead across the dam and down to the finish.”While many of KwaZulu-Natal’s rivers are currently enjoying near full conditions, a dry few days in the build up to the race produced an exceptionally low water level, adding to the day’s challenge.‘Tight and technical’“There was very little water,” Kime said, describing the challenge it posed. “It is a race known for being quite low, but this year the river was probably lower than ever before and, with it being a doubles race, it really was tight and technical.“We had to get out and push over things a couple of times, but it was a good outing for us nonetheless. Training together, which this race was for us, is always far better than training on your own, so we definitely still got a lot out of it.”“We’re getting better and better with time. We’ve gotten to know each other in the boat really well and things have steadily improved for us over time.“A couple of good results, like we’ve had recently, also really start getting you thinking that maybe we can actually do this [win Dusi].”Women’s winnersThe majority of the Dusi’s top female contenders took to the water in K1s, which opened the door for the evergreen pairing of Debbie Germiquet and Carmen Donald to take the women’s spoils ahead of Jordan Peek and Brittany Petersen.With their Dusi partners out of town, Abby Adie led home Robyn Kime and Hilary Bruss in the women’s K1 section, while the pairing of Sboniso Shonzi and Nokukhanya Shange claimed the mixed doubles victory.The Dusi Canoe Marathon 2014 starts in Pietermaritzburg on Thursday, 13 February and ends in Durban on Saturday, 15 February.RESULTSOVERALLLance Kime/Thulani Mbanjwa 2:00.10Lucas Mthalane/Mmeli Cele 2:01.17Carl Folscher/Sbonelo Zondi 2:01.33Murray Starr/Andrew Adie 2:03.41Donovan Wewege/Kevin Musgrave 2:06.14WomenDebbie Germiquet/Carmen Donald 2:21.46Jordan Peek/Brittany Petersen 2:35.26Jenna Ward/Lauren Felgate 2:44.09Men K1Marc Germiquet 2:13.13Thando Ngamlana 2:19.37Mfaniseni Nyawose 2:21.28Women K1Abby Adie 2:19.43Robyn Kime 2:22.18Hilary Bruss 2:31.31SAinfo reporterlast_img read more
