Álvaro Cervera: “The team is afraid. It is my feeling ”

first_imgDespite the victory, Cervera was not happy with his team’s game. “A match where an eleven-against-ten team has not made enough merits to win it, but has won a stroke of luck in the end. The team is very shackled, it is not a fluid team, the decision making is the first that goes through the head, not the best. The team does not steal balls, wait for the opponent to lose it. This victory is not that we were superior to the rival. It is hard for us to play with certain criteria. ”Stroke of luck. “We have been more inaccurate, victory gives it luck. The team plays crushed, I don’t know if the requirement, the points … The team looks like it plays self-conscious. ”Stuck equipment. “If our mouth swells talking about promotion, the team has to respond to that. If we talk about promotion we must have the hierarchy to respond. We have to calm down and enjoy the victory, but put our feet on the ground, based on who we are, three times four. From there, grow. With a closed team it costs us our lives not only to score a goal, but to generate danger ”.Is the team deranged? “That they give you three minutes seems like a lie, but get into soccer, but we have also had opportunities to give rhythm to the game and we have not done it.”Stuck. “I always believe that the physical question comes from the mental question. The team is afraid. It is my feeling. I do not know why. You have to go out and be there, I have been a footballer and I have played games with fear of the stage, the abyss of 48 points and there are players who feel more self-conscious. Players who train with you see them laugh and when it comes to the game they are more muted. ” Change of Iván Alejo. “The card has advanced the change. That type of reaction has them many times. The two changes, both he and Garrido, have been for the cards. ”Cristóbal Parralo: “I am happy for the delivery of the team”The Racing coach claims to be happy for the sacrifice of the teamor to cover the expulsion of Olaortua, but also sad for not having gotten a reward for that work. The minister insists that problems arise one week after another, this time, they suffered expulsion and injury.Match played. “As it happened four days ago against Las Palmas, we had a meritorious point almost in our possession, but football is that capricious. We have to get up and continue. I keep the effort of the team. ”Expulsion of Olaortua. “It is not known what would have happened with eleven players, but we had to multiply. The injury forced us to make another change. Things come like this. I have to check the images of the expulsion, from the bench I have not seen it well. I haven’t talked to him yet. During the break we tried to adjust the lines, but I didn’t have time to talk to him. ”Defeated players “We have many matches with very similar situations. When you have such a need to rate, these situations get worse and are much more painful. ”Defensive work. “I speak of my team, I want to highlight the solidarity that has existed after the expulsion so that the lack of that player is not noticed. I feel happy for the delivery and sacrifice of the team, but sad because it has not been rewarded. “Goal of Cádiz. “I knew there would be phases in which we were going to suffer. The team at the time of the goal was fine. Just before we had the chance to score. This time we had injury and expulsion and a goal, to make it even more dramatic, at the discount. ”last_img read more

Juventus grind out 2-1 win at Chievo

first_imgMILAN (AP):Title-winning teams often grind out results despite not playing well and that is precisely what Juventus are doing.Chievo Verona had won just one of their past six matches, but Juventus struggled to break them down before eventually winning 2-1 yesterday.Juventus moved four points clear of A Roma, which beat Bologna 3-0, with AC Milan a point further behind following their 2-1 away win over Palermo.Miralem Pjanic had struggled to fit in since transferring from Roma in the off-season, but he scored what was to prove the winner for Juventus in the 75th minute with a trademark free kick into the top right corner from just outside the area.”I won the free kick and I put it in. I’m happy, but what’s important, above all, is the three points,” Pjanic said. “I always do my utmost to fit in as best as possible, it’s obvious that I want to do more, but it’s a new system, it’s a different kind of football to where I was before, but I’m adapting.”I’m not worried, I know that there are always great expectations in a great club, that doesn’t worry me, I’m staying calm, I do my work as best as possible. So slowly but surely I’ll get there, I’m a new footballer here, but I’m happy to be here.”Mario Mandzukic broke the deadlock in the 53rd, controlling Juan Cuadrado’s through ball before driving across into the bottom left corner.Mandzukic almost scored a stunning goal in the first half, nodding on a long ball and flicking it over Nicolas Spolli before firing over the bar from six yards.Juventus goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon was making his 600th Serie A appearance, becoming only the fourth player to reach that mark after Paolo Maldini (647), Javier Zanetti (615) – who are both retired – and Roma captain Francesco Totti (607).Buffon was decisive in the 64th to deny Lucas Castro from point-blank range, but could do nothing moments later as Sergio Pellissier converted a penalty after being tripped by Stephan Lichtsteiner.In other results, Empoli trashed Pescara 4-0, Inter Milan and Atalanta had 3-0 wins over Crotone and Sassuolo, while the Fiorentina – Sampdoria and Genoa – Udinese games ended 1-1.last_img read more

UNMEER Says No New Cases in Nine Counties

first_imgAn official report from the United Nations Mission on Ebola Emergency Response (UNMEER) has disclosed that over the past 21 days, nine counties, mostly in Southeastern Liberia, have reported no new Ebola cases.Hans Rosling said Grand Gedeh, River Gee, Grand Kru, Maryland, Gbarpolu, Bomi, Grand Bassa, and River Cess counties, have reported no confirmed cases of the Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) for more than 21 days, while Lofa County in northern Liberia has reported zero cases in more than 40 days.Speaking at the Information Ministry’s daily Ebola briefing last Monday, Mr. Rosling expressed the hope that the situation would remain under control and that there would not be a rebirth of the disease in those counties, especially Lofa, the former epicenter of the deadly Ebola virus disease.Lofa is one of several Liberian counties bordering Guinea, from which the first outbreak was transmitted. He explained that Foya in Lofa County registered Liberia’s first case of Ebola in early March 2014, with the disease subsequently spreading rapidly to other parts of the country.He has, however, cautioned residents of those counties to remain assertive in protecting their communities and families by adhering to the preventive measures outlined by the Ministry of Health and its partners, including reporting all sick cases, doing away with bathing of dead bodies and shaking of hands.At the same time, according to Rosling, six counties- Cape Mount, Montserrado, Bong, Nimba, Margibi and Sinoe, have reported over 70 Ebola cases in the last three weeks but he maintained that UMEER was determined to ensure that Ebola is eradicated from Liberia.It may be recalled that in early November, the World Health Organization (WHO) assigned doctor to Lofa, Clement Peter, declared the Foya Emergency Treatment Unit (ETU) free of Ebola after it did not report cases of the disease in more than three weeks.“The World Health Organization (WHO) will declare a country Ebola-free if no new Ebola case is reported in 42 days. Liberia is fighting the virus and hopes that the country will be declared Ebola-free soon.”Also speaking, the Head of the Incident Management Team andAssistant Minister for Preventive Services, Tolbert Nyenswah, revealed that the government has sent a six-man technical team to Grand Cape Mount County to beef up the strength of the local Ebola Taskforce in eradicating the virus.Minister Nyenswah said the government’s decision to dispatch the team was due to the constant outbreak of new Ebola cases in the area and the need to curb the virus.He said it is regrettable that while many counties are reporting zero cases, Cape Mount is still reporting fresh Ebola cases daily.Minister Nyenswah further disclosed that the six-person team will work with the County Health Team and local and international partners in fighting the further spread of the virus in the county.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Attorney contract remains unsigned

first_imgBagwell said he voted for the authorization in the interest of healing a divided council. Meanwhile, Bill Molinari, the city’s mayor pro tem, voted in favor of hiring Beltran and in favor of the contract, but cannot ink his signature to the deal unless Lopez-Reid is out of town or ill, officials said. “Give me the authority,” Bagwell said. “I’ll sign it.” Lopez-Reid did not return four phone calls seeking comment Wednesday. Interim City Manager Randy Narramore, hired by the council earlier this month, said he hoped the situation would be resolved soon. MONTEBELLO – The contract for City Attorney J. Arnoldo Beltran remains unsigned by the mayor, even though the City Council approved hiring the lawyer in February, officials said Wednesday. By law, the mayor is authorized to sign all contracts approved by the Montebello City Council. The mayor pro tem can sign contracts in the event of illness or absence. So far, neither has put a pen to Beltran’s proposal. “They are both kind of adamant about their decision not to sign it,” said Bob Bagwell, a councilman who originally opposed hiring Beltran. “They want to have some kind of meeting to resolve it.” Although he joined Mayor Norma Lopez-Reid and voted against hiring Beltran, Bagwell did vote in favor of authorizing the contract, while Lopez-Reid abstained. “This all happened before I got here,” he said. “Hopefully they’ll get something done.” Beltran had no comment Wednesday. The lack of a signed contract could result in a lawsuit against the city, Bagwell noted. Beltran has been paid on his February invoice to the city, Bagwell said. “This is an issue where two people don’t see eye-to-eye,” Bagwell said. Although he’s been on the council for four years, Bagwell said he’s never seen a situation quite like this one. “Hopefully it can be resolved,” he said. “We need to take care of business and move on and work together. Right now it’s not happening.” The City Council had planned to discuss a strict new resolution that would institute the censure and impose fines on council members who were deemed to have behavioral problems during meetings. That discussion has been postponed, Narramore said “I think its pretty well known \ a 3-2 council and they are looking at something to speed it up. My first council meeting was last week and it didn’t finish until 1 a.m.” The proposed resolution, which contains provisions for fining council members and even having them removed from public meetings, will be reviewed by Beltran before the council begins a discussion on it, Narramore said. “The city attorney will have to give some guidance on this one,” he said. “It was pretty strong and I doubt that something that strong could work here.” frank.girardot@sgvn.com (626) 962-8811 Ext. 2717 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Soccer: USL panel in driving seat with another win in FAI Inter-Pros

first_imgTHE ULSTER SENIOR LEAGUE representative panel are right in the mix to win the Michael Ward Trophy following a comfortable 2-0 win over Connacht in Cork this afternoon.Fanad United’s Davitt Walsh scored twice as Peter Moran’s team won for the second time in as many games.The USL selection will face the hosts, Cork, in tomorrow morning’s clash at Turner’s Cross and have given themselves a superb chance of adding to their Intermediate Interprovincial successes of 1998, 2013 and 2014. Moran made seven changes to his starting XI with Walsh one of those included from the start today. Sam Todd, Jack Blake, Laurence Toland, Ryan Varma, Chris Flanagan and Adrian Delap were the others elevated to the starting line-up.Walsh had been unavailable last night as he was in Dublin, where he was presented with a Gold Medal for Marine Gallantry, honouring his heroism in the Buncrana Pier Tragedy when he saved the life of four-month-old baby Rionaghac-Ann.The USL took the lead just after the half-hour mark as Walsh opened the scoring.After a fine move down the left, Laurence Toland whipped a dangerous cross towards the front post and Walsh expertly turned home.Midway through the second half, they doubled the lead. Having surged forward from full-back, Bonagee United’s Gareth Breslin was taken down in the penalty area and the referee awarded a penalty.Walsh stepped up and neatly tucked home to the goalkeeper’s right-hand side.Ulster Senior League: Harry Doherty (Cockhill Celtic), Gareth Breslin (Bonagee United), Conor Tourish (Letterkenny Rovers), Peter Doherty (Cockhill Celtic), Sam Todd (Derry City Reserves), Jack Blake (Derry City Reserves), Laurence Toland (Swilly Rovers), Ryan Varma (Cockhill Celtic), Chris Flanagan (Letterkenny Rovers), Adrian Delap (Derry City Reserves), Davitt Walsh (Fanad United).Subs used: Stephen Duffy (Derry City Reserves), Derek Doherty (Cockhill Celtic), Mark Moran (Cockhill Celtic).Results – FAI Intermediate Interprovincial TournamentFriday Ulster Senior League 3 Leinster Senior League 1Munster Senior League 1 Connacht 0SaturdayUlster Senior League 2-0 ConnachtFixturesSaturday, October 15 3.30pmMunster Senior League v Leinster Senior LeagueO’Shea Park, BlarneySunday, October 16, 10.45amLeinster Senior League v Connacht Ringmahon ParkMunster Senior League v Ulster Senior League    Turner’s CrossSoccer: USL panel in driving seat with another win in FAI Inter-Pros was last modified: October 15th, 2016 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)last_img read more
