Caroline Garcia denounces serious insults received for losing: “I wish you die of cancer”

first_imgCaroline Garcia determined to share within the social networks the serious insults she received after her defeat final Tuesday towards Italy’s Fiona Ferro within the St. Petersburg match. The French 26 and 46th on the earth made public the expletives, sadly frequent in tennis, by punters indignant at their defeat by 7-5, 3-6, and 6-3, considerably unexpectedly, towards a rival much less rating, however not too low (58th).“I hope you die of most cancers,” one of these sad followers wrote. “You’re a depressing loser, a disgrace for the game,” mentioned one other softer assault. “Get out of tennis, bitch; your father (additionally a coach) is a bastard”, was one other of the insults that included her and her household, and that features the French portal RMC Sport. The reality is that Garcia goes by means of a nasty second of kind and that’s the solely motive for his defeats.

Barcelona and Real scrap for revival as Clasico looms

first_img0Shares0000Lopetegui’s Real Madrid have failed to score in their last four matches © AFP/File / ANDER GILLENEAMADRID, Spain, Oct 19 – Real Madrid and Barcelona cannot avoid heading into next week’s Clasico under pressure but each have two games to lift the mood at least, ahead of the pivotal clash at the Camp Nou.Eight games into La Liga and both Julen Lopetegui and Ernesto Valverde are feeling the heat, forced to defend poor runs that have seen their teams manage a combined total of two wins from their last 10 games. Madrid’s slump feels the more entrenched, given they are without a goal in 360 minutes, discounting injury time, and three of their last four matches have ended in defeat.While Barca can point to their riveting win at Wembley over Tottenham, and then a point gained in Valencia, Madrid have endured successive setbacks away to CSKA Moscow and Alaves.They have two home games to clear the fog, and winnable ones too, against Levante in La Liga on Saturday before Viktoria Plzen visit on Tuesday in the Champions League.A pair of victories, and just as importantly, some goals, would earn Lopetegui much-needed breathing space.He is already being asked about his future in the same job he sacrificed Spain and the World Cup for in June.“A coach does not think about this, we are in October,” Lopetegui said after Alaves’ first league win at home to Real Madrid since 1931.“The only positive is we are close to the top of the league, the most important thing now is to recover the injured players and then calmness will come by winning games and scoring goals.”Injuries have certainly not helped. Marcelo and Isco are both expected back against Levante while Gareth Bale has been training again this week, albeit on his own. All three would provide an attacking boost.Karim Benzema is struggling with a hamstring strain but the forward might anyway be less missed.Seven games without a goal have seen calls grow louder for Mariano Diaz to be given a chance and Lopetegui may now be able to oblige, without the unwanted dig at the Frenchman’s confidence.Lopetegui is also right to draw comfort from the table, as Barcelona’s stumbles mean his team are only two points off the top, where Sevilla are the surprise frontrunners.– Barca face table-toppers Sevilla –Barca face Sevilla on Saturday night in an unexpected duel of first and second, where the onus will be on Valverde’s men to make a statement.Sevilla have won four league games on the bounce and, in one of those, thumped Real Madrid 3-0.They also continue a run of blockbuster ties for Barca, which has already included Spurs and Valencia, and will stretch deep into November.After Sevilla, they play at home to Inter Milan on Wednesday and Real Madrid on Sunday. At the start of next month, they face Inter again in Italy, Atletico Madrid and Real Betis.A win this weekend and Barcelona might feel a corner has been turned.Level with the Catalans are Atletico Madrid, whose resurgence after a slow start is already in full swing.“We are the annoying team, that will always come between Barcelona and Real Madrid,” said Antoine Griezmann last week.Atletico visit struggling Villarreal on Saturday, looking to make it eight games unbeaten.The real surprise leaders of the weekend, however, could be Alaves, who were playing in Spanish football’s third tier only five years ago.They will go top, even if only temporarily, with a win away at Celta Vigo on Friday.FixturesFridayCelta Vigo v Alaves (10pm)SaturdayReal Madrid v Levante (2pm), Valencia v Leganes (5:15pm), Villarreal v Atletico Madrid (7:30pm), Barcelona v Sevilla (9:45pm)SundayRayo Vallecano v Getafe (1pm), Eibar v Athletic Bilbao (5:15pm), Huesca v Espanyol (7:30pm), Real Betis v Real Valladolid (9:45pm)MondayReal Sociedad v Girona (10pm)0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

MEET THE DONEGAL WOMAN WHO HAS RISEN TO THE RANK OF CAPTAIN IN THE DEFENCE FORCES

first_imgCaptain Bridget Clarke: Pic Donegal DailyIT MAY be a male-dominated world but Donegal Army Officer Bridget Clarke has risen through the ranks of the military and believes other women can do the same.Based at Finner Military Camp, the Carrigans woman was recently promoted to the rank of Captain and oversees more than four hundred personnel.Capt. Clarke told Donegal Daily how she enlisted when she was eighteen-years-old “for the adventure and the money” and said she would do it all over again. She is now celebrating 22 years as a member of the Defence Forces.After excelling in her training, doing further military courses and serving overseas this determined woman went from raw recruit to Commissioned Officer. She is attached to 28th Infantry Battalion.Speaking about the promotion, she says: “I was honoured and privileged on behalf of my Unit and my family. It really was a massive honour for me. I wouldn’t be part of it if I didn’t enjoy what I do. It really is a life less ordinary.”Among her many duties is the responsibility for discipline, ceremonial matters, contracts and HR for personnel at Finner Camp. “It’s a broad spectrum of work and then I am also assistant for the officer commanding,” she says.“You are his right-hand woman. I am employed in the Battalion Headquarters and then you would have a Company underneath that.”She was speaking following the announcement of a new Defence Forces recruitment campaign, Join Our Team, launched by Defence Minister Simon Coveney.It plans to induct more than 600 general service personnel to the Permanent Defence Force in 2016 and a further 850 personnel in 2017.The 2016 campaign is hoping to increase female recruitment while also reaching out to people from all backgrounds and ethnicity. Currently, just over 6% of personnel are women. Privates in the Defence Forces earn around €36,000 a year and also receive foreign service allowances.A former County and St Eunan’s footballer, Capt. Clarke said her sporting background helped her prepare for the physical demands of life in the Army.She says: “At that time, I was studying Electronics at Letterkenny I.T. I was a sporty person anyway and I thought this was something that I wanted to give a go. I thought about the adventure, getting away from home and earning some money.“I played GAA and soccer and went on to play football for the Army. I also had a great family support network. I don’t come from a military background so this was all new to me.” Throughout the training process and interviews, Bridget’s mother Annie was beside her all the way.The 40-year-old officer comes from a family of seven – three brothers and three sisters – and also has huge support from her husband, Dermot, a former member of the Defence Forces who is now studying for a PhD.Asked why young women should consider a career in the Army, she says: “It is unbelievable the career prospects open for new recruits nowadays.“You can keep up your sports, you have opportunities to study for civilian qualifications accredited by Carlow I.T. and you have a chance to serve overseas. A lot of entrants coming in are highly educated and you try to allow them to build on that.“It isn’t always easy. You’re going into an organisation and it’s challenging; the training is challenging and robust. But you do get great satisfaction when you complete the training.You get to meet people from all parts of the country and you make friends for life.“You are making a commitment to the country that you are going to serve. There are times when you will be disappointed. You have to be prepared to get on with it. But the rewards are there.”Capt Clarke, who has served overseas on four different occasions, explains how women do make a difference .“Women bring so much in many ways. They help to calm and engage with local population and in certain conflict situations can help to bring balance.”Recalling her first overseas deployment, Capt Clarke says: “That was a massive experience for me. Other than a school trip, that was my first trip abroad. It was fascinating and nothing will beat your first trip.“There were six other females – we were six strangers in a room but there was great camaraderie and support. And you do make lifelong friends.“When I first went overseas, there was no social media, mobile phones or internet. You had to wait on a letter and it was brilliant getting that letter. If I go overseas again I would still ask for a letter to be sent because there’s something special about that.“Two years ago I was back in Lebanon again. It was so different for me. The rank, the job and whatever it is about the Irish Army but we tend to win people over. It’s a very different country now. It was a very rewarding experience.”Applications can be made online at www.military.ie Army applicants must be at least 18 years old, and under 25 years old. Closing date for applications is Sunday, May 22 – 23:59 hours.MEET THE DONEGAL WOMAN WHO HAS RISEN TO THE RANK OF CAPTAIN IN THE DEFENCE FORCES was last modified: April 24th, 2016 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:Bridget ClarkeCaptainDefence forcesmilitary.ierecruitmentlast_img read more

GAA NEWS: TERMON U12’S CAPTURE COUNTY TITLE

first_imgThe Termon U12 teams capped a fine season with victories in both matches over Glenties in the county finals played in Naomh Mhuire on Sunday last.Cheered on by a large crowd of parents and supporters, the development squad set the scene with victory in the first game.The determination and work rate of these players gave them a platform which allowed their passing game to flow. Great credit is due to this squad who have improved so much over the year.Each and every one of the team raised their game for the final and fully deserved their victory.Mark Toye and Luke Downey were resolute in defence, Kevin Mc Gettigan and Manus O Connell put in a towering performance in midfield while Michael Trearty, Lorcan Callaghan and Martin Mc Garvey provided some fantastic scores.In the A final, the Termon boys started very strongly only to be hit by a goal against the run of play which brought a quality Glenties team back into the game.

Dortmund put Chelsea disappointment top of the shopping list

first_img Morata scored 11 Premier League goals last season Morata had a mixed first season in England following his £58m move from Real Madrid in 2017.He scored 11 goals in 31 Premier League games, but his lack of goals in the final half of the campaign was alarming.After finding the net against Brighton on Boxing Day, Morata scored just one more Premier League goal in his final 14 appearances of the season – and even that came in a 3-1 defeat to Tottenham.Now with a managerial change expected at Stamford Bridge, Morata’s future has become unclear and Dortmund are reportedly ready to pounce.Morata’s Chelsea team-mate Michy Batshuayi spent the second half of last term on loan at Dortmund, scoring seven goals in 10 Bundesliga appearances, and he could be signed permanently.But German publication Bild has reported that the club really want to complete a deal for Morata, although a price tag of around £45m could be a problem.If so, Dortmund could turn their attention to Werder Bremen’s Max Kruse, who would be significantly cheaper and with six goals in 28 appearances this may explain the reasoning for difference in price.

What happened the last time England were in a World Cup semi-final

first_imgJimmy Hill decided it had been “a pleasure to see an England team give such a display in the arts and crafts of the game”.But early in the second half, it was still West Germany dominating as they had done before the whistle.England won a corner on 53 minutes but Pearce fumbled, leaving the opposition to break.Thon sped 25 yards into the box, turning around Parker before cursing the talent of Shilton, who somehow pushed the shot away to his left.The game was very much open and markedly good-natured. But for England, it wasn’t enough.Will they have better fortune this time around? Tune into talkSPORT on Wednesday for the World Cup semi-final between Croatia and England, kick-off 7pm. And the deadlock, as we know, doesn’t break: unbelievably close shots disturb the stoppers at either end but nothing gets through.Shilton was both heroic and lucky to only concede one, a fault of a loose defence who were too often off their mark.But penalties, the cruellest thing in football, awaited. Klinsmann continued to bother Shilton but was consistently allowed the freedom to evade the English defence.Five minutes later, the famous moment came: Gazza’s good-natured but boisterous tackle on Berthold is clearly a foul, but does not warrant the West German’s overwrought reaction, with theatrics Neymar would be proud of today. Lineker gives England a lifeline on 81 minutes 15 They think Pearce has put them ahead A strong start had legendary BBC commentator John ‘Motty’ Motson say: “England are playing some tidy football,” as surprised as the rest of the nation that we were actually holding our own.Between them, Gazza and Lineker were dazzling and dependable in equal measure, comfortably cocky on the world’s biggest stage.But it was Waddle who drew gasps half an hour in with a thunderbolt shot from 45 yards rattling the crossbar. 15 Gazza, realising the cost of his error, throws his hands up in hastened apology but the yellow comes out, ruling him out of the final against Argentina should they get there (that they don’t is bittersweet).The face reddens, tears come and Lineker tells the bench to “have a word”; the prospect of an English side in the final is tainted and so, so sad. 15 To his credit, he doesn’t give in and when Berthold subjects him to a tackle much worse than his was, rightfully getting booked himself, the pair shake hands.The consequent free-kick sets up Platt for a clever header which is painfully, but correctly, disallowed for Gazza’s marginally offside position. 15 15 Nothing could provoke Gazza’s temper A foul to Lineker saw Kohler pick him up and give him a friendly pat on the head; old divides are forgotten on football pitches.But good sportsmanship could not beat good sportsmen, and the dreaded goal came on 59 minutes.Pearce claimed another grievous error as he fouled Hässler just over 20 yards out, just to the right of the centre.A free kick was sent to Brehme, whose powerful shot deflected off Parker and looped over the helpless, hapless Shilton who fell over himself trying to keep the ball from its destination. 15 15 Their place felt lucky: their quarter-final victory over Cameroon didn’t feel fully deserved and their best performance had come in a 0-0 draw against Holland.But the West Germans, wearing a zany green kit, were on fire, having breezed past Yugoslavia, Holland and Czechoslovakia on their merry way to the semis, their eighth time getting this far in their last nine attempts.We all know how this one ends, but here’s a recap for those of us  – including 16 of Gareth Southgate’s 23 in Russia – who weren’t around for that fateful day. England (5-3-2): Peter Shilton; Paul Parker, Terry Butcher, Mark Wright, Des Walker, Stuart Pearce; Chris Waddle, Paul Gascoigne, David Platt; Gary Lineker, Peter Beardsley.West Germany (3-5-2): Bodo Illgner; Guido Buchwald, Klaus Augenthaler, Jürgen Kohler; Thomas Berthold, Thomas Hässler, Lothar Matthäus, Olaf Thon, Andreas Brehme; Jürgen Klinsmann, Rudi Völler.Referee: José Roberto Wright (Brazil). 15center_img He sank to his knees as West Germany celebrated wildly, leaving them with just one match until they would lift the Jules Rimet trophy.Matthäus lifted a destroyed Waddle to his feet, a gesture which encapsulated the respect and joy of this seminal semi-final. Lineker saves the day 15 15 Bereft Yet England bounced back, with Pearce nearly making amends for his fault with a header just wide only minutes later.Gazza continued as the beating heart of the midfield, moving the West German defenders into vulnerable spaces.The first yellow card of the game went to Parker for his blatant clattering of Buchwald, and it seemed a spell had broken.Minutes later, England were denied a clear penalty when Augenthaler brought Waddle to ground but their patience was finally rewarded nine minutes from time.Parker sent a long cross from the halfway line on the right to Lineker, who controlled a Kohler deflection with his knee before booting a left-footed shot in to the far corner.His tenth World Cup goal, and the fourth of Italia ‘90, sent England into extra-time for the third time in a row, the first time it had ever happened at a World Cup. Waddle and Matthaus battle it out England manager Sir Bobby Robson was pragmatic about the result 15 15 Paul Gascoigne at Italia ‘90 is the emblematic face of English heartache.Tearful after a booking ruled him out of the World Cup final, his dream of leading Bobby Robson’s England side to glory had they beaten West Germany, as it was then, was scuppered.The semi-final on July 4, 1990 was their biggest match in 24 years. 15 But with extra-time came the slack discipline that comes with sheer desperation to progress.England played turbulently, giving possession away cheaply and missing their marks to force Shilton into a fine save on 95 minutes, denying Klinsmann. 15 The West Germans, dismayed by the ease with which England were controlling the game thus far, piled pressure on five minutes from half time, stretching Shilton in goal but still unable to break the deadlock.Come half time, BBC pundit Terry Venables was singing England’s praises, calling them “unbeatable”. Waddle’s despair We’re even until 3-3, with Lineker, Beardsley and Platt putting them away.But Pearce’s miss, a poor shot down the middle that Illgner saved with his feet, was out of character enough to demonstrate the hellish pressure of World Cup pens.Thon’s success on the next one meant it all fell on Waddle.And though his shot sailed inches over the bar, it felt like miles. England were charming and relaxed 15last_img read more
