We bring on Lamela if he can.“We bring Dele. We didn’t have a presence in the box, the opposition is going to try with the low block so let’s try to have one with Dele.“We are trying to do things so very difficult for us.

But I saw crazy things, completely off the plate. That’s what put me in this impossible state. But I never fell for it.“It’s easy to say, about a player at PSG: ‘Ah, he didn’t respect the institution, PSG must take sanctions.’ But, that is not for you to say! That’s why I say that in France, it is easy to criticise.“Here [in England], they know there is a problem with a player and they say, ‘We will see what the club does.’ It is different from: ‘He must be punished.’“They [journalists] can write whatever they want, but they have to keep in mind that the person they are writing about is a human being.

The turn of the century

first_imgMárquez’s corridor. Marc Márquez reappeared at the Circuit of the Americas in Austin, which comes to be like the hallway of his house. The Thunder of Cervera added his seventh title in the Texan layout in his eight participations. And that came to the appointment with more broken bones than Filemón after meeting the mustached agent Cachomúlez, after he mistakenly whispered the password “the guys with mustaches look like hottentots.” The fact is that Márquez in the middle of the race had time to stop, make a couple of announcements, a solidarity campaign, change the nails of the clavicle and even so he still had more than enough finish.The Vietnamese Roll. Lewis Hamilton won the Formula One Vietnam Grand Prix at the Hanoi street circuit. But the news was in the press conferences after the race. The juiciest of all was that of Fernando Alonso, who did not participate, but who appeared before the press to charge against the McLaren mechanics. “Carlos Sainz is lazy and too good a guy, I see that the nuts are loosening up and that is not the case.” Local restaurants are baffled, because the famous ‘Vietnamese Roll’ has taken on a new meaning from that press conference that has nothing to do with Asian cuisine. The Change. After the fast-paced game that closed the league game on Sunday in Anoeta between the Real Sociedad and Real Madrid, jumped the scandal of the season. The subject will bring a queue. At the last moment, already on the steps of the plane that was to transport the white team back to the capital, Real Madrid was discovered by the airport agents in their attempt to hit the changeover to the people of Donostia. Odegaard was discovered wearing the meringue team tracksuit, sunglasses and a cap about to take off as part of the white expedition. He also had a sticking plaster in his mouth. Minutes earlier, Jovic had been discovered, perfectly dressed in Real Sociedad, locked in the toilets of the visiting locker room. In the end, the change did not slip and each will train today with their respective teams.Butragueño. Faced with this brutal attempt, Real Madrid acted immediately and the club’s institutional spokesman appeared before the press, Emilio Butragueño, who offered an exciting spiel on how green sauce should be properly cooked to get a hake to the Donostiarra de chupote. When asked about the crude change, the Real Madrid spokesman said that, if the facts were confirmed, it would be studied very seriously, but “Do not forget that the key to everything is in the balance between the fumet, the white wine and the flour, that if the sauce is not too liquid or too thick and then it is worth nothing.”last_img read more

No Candy Tossing in DC

first_imgSome parents in Dawson Creek want a stop to candy being tossed at children during parades because of safety concerns.Cities such as Kamloops, Prince George and Fort St. John began enforcing a no-toss rule a few years ago.Fort St. John Coun. Larry Evans, who is also marshal for the city’s parades, says kids would burst from the sidewalks towards moving vehicles to get the candy, sometimes moving too fast for parents to grab them.He says the drivers of the floats would lose sight of the children when they ran into the parade and that was too dangerous.Fort St. John hasn’t banned floats from flinging candy at crowds, but asks participants to hand out treats to kids instead.Stefanie Oestreich, office manager for Dawson Creek’s Chamber of Commerce, which organizes the annual Fall Fair parade, says there are no plans to ban candy tossing and that parents and float participants should act responsibly to keep children safe. – Advertisement –last_img read more

Ex-banker Sarri only interested in money- Napoli owner

first_img0Shares0000Chelsea coach Maurizio Sarri marshalls his men in the goalless draw at West HamMILAN, Italy, Oct 10 – Napoli owner Aurelio De Laurentiis on Wednesday accused former coach Maurizio Sarri of only being interested in money and predicted that new manager Carlo Ancelotti was in for the long haul as the southerners chase a first Serie A title since 1990 and dream of Champions League success.“I thought I had met a coach who would stay at Napoli for a long time,” De Laurentiis said of Sarri in an interview with Corriere dello Sport. “At a certain point it became a question linked exclusively to money.“Suddenly, it was established by the media that his contract must be adjusted. So what is the value of an agreement just signed? We had already gone from 700,000 euros (Sh80mn) to 1.5 million euros (Sh170mn)).“I also once heard him say that for his next contract, he wanted to get rich.“Sarri’s declarations of love for the city? I believed it, but then I wondered: ‘What if he was using me as a bank?’”Sarri, a former footballer who turned to a career in banking in London, Zurich, Frankfurt and Luxembourg, before returning to coaching, took over at Napoli in 2015.-Ancelotti take overBut the 59-year-old moved to Chelsea on a deal reported to be worth nearly six million euros (Sh660mn) during the summer after Napoli finished runners-up to Juventus despite a club record 91 points.His job in the Stadio San Paolo was taken by former Chelsea and Paris Saint-Germain boss Ancelotti, who has won league titles in five of Europe’s top leagues as well as the Champions League with AC Milan and Real Madrid.“Ancelotti was a date written in the football universe as if fate had decided it,” said film producer De Laurentiis, who rescued the club from bankrupcy in 2004.“It took five minutes to get an agreement. The quickest negotiation of my fifteen years of football.”Napoli are six points behind Juventus in Serie A this term, but are top of their group in the Champions League after a late Lorenzo Insigne winner over Liverpool a week ago.“With him, we have a human relationship. We discuss our mutual interests. And if I talk about football, he doesn’t get offended,” said De Laurentiis.-Politely“Before the match against Liverpool I called him in the morning. I expressed some opinions, politely, but also with authority.“He told me: ‘Don’t worry, president, we will win’. I took it as his word and at the 87th-minute thought: ‘Do you want to see what happens?’ And then it happened.“Insigne? He hasn’t surprised me. He’s a product of Napoli and Naples, a complicated city where it’s more difficult than elsewhere to be a prophet in your homeland.“He (Insigne) proved to be a man.”De Laurentiis believes that there is still hope this season despite trailing Juventus by six points after eight games.“There will be a moment when even Juventus can break,” he warned.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

California woman dies in hot air balloon accident

first_imgALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – The basket of a hot air balloon tipped after the craft got stuck, sending a female passenger on a 60- to 70-foot fall to her death Monday, state police said. The balloon snagged a fiberoptic line running above a power line about 8 a.m. during an annual balloon festival. The pilot threw down a tether to a pickup truck on the ground to reel the balloon down and free it, state police spokesman Andrew Tingwall said. But the tether broke, and the balloon flew back up, causing its gondola to tip and the woman to fall to the ground, Tingwall said. Paramedics tried to revive the woman, Rosemary Wooley Phillips, 60, of California, in a dirt field where she fell, but were unsuccessful, he said.

Tingwall did not know the conditions of the other three passengers or the pilot. The crash site is about three miles from the launch site for the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta, a nine-day event that began Saturday and features mass ascensions of balloons, events for special shaped balloons and competitions for pilots. There have been fatalities in previous years. One woman was killed during the 1998 event when a balloon plowed into two sets of power lines before plummeting about 30 feet to the ground at Kirtland Air Force Base on Albuquerque’s south side. During the 1993 fiesta, two men were killed when their balloon hit power lines, severing the gondola, which plunged about 90 feet to the ground. Two other men died during the 1990 fiesta when their balloon crashed into power lines and burst into flames. Four people died and five were injured during the 1982 fiesta when propane tanks on a large balloon exploded. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
