Atlético – Liverpool | The Atleti and the triumph of faith

first_imgWithout possession, half against the rojiblancos was enough to continue transforming into wasps, horses galloping towards the goal of Alisson. But sometimes Morata ran into Robertson and sometimes with Alisson. The break came with Mané hitting Vrsaljko in the face for twice of pure impotence, playing the red one, and Oblak with the gloves intact. It was the first time that Liverpool Klopp closed a part without a shot on goal. The coach reacted immediately: I originated by Mané as soon as I returned from rest. Lemar was also leaving, his work done, it was Llorente’s turn. I needed the Atleti legs, lungs, physique. Atlético is a team with multiple automated attack connections. That attacks you in many different ways. Again the Atleti sanctified and locked in its area, but 45 minutes more worn. Liverpool had more body, more rhythm, haste. Salah nodded a ball that went to a span of Oblak’s right post. He was playing Liverpool over and over Vrsaljko’s band, once they had verified that Lodi had his door locked and very closed. His match was outrageous.The Metropolitan began to feel the heart in the throat. As if missing chest to put in so many nerves. He raised his voice. Ale, ale, aleee. His team was all shrinking and inaccuracies but all eyes were directed at the band, those of Klopp also: Costa sowed panic just by going out to warm up. Then Morata, alone before Alisson, tripped over himself and sent to the air the nth center of Lodi that furrowed the air screaming goool. He had to continue to suffer while the skin of Koke, Saul and Thomas was spilled on the grass in sweat drips. Holding the trident before, leading the pressure, swinging and covering now. ChangesMarcos Llorente (45 ‘, Lemar), Divock Origi (45 ‘, Mane), Vitolo (69 ‘, Morata), Oxlade-Chamberlain (72 ‘, Salah), Diego Costa (76 ‘, Belt), Milner (79 ‘, Henderson) Reason shouted that it was impossible. Beat Liverpool, stand up in this knockout round, Liverpool Klopp, the champion, the heavy-metal team that thunks throughout Europe. The impossible that in the 4th minute raised a fist to the aphonic cry of the Metropolitan, which sounded like old Calderón. A fist with that tattooed phrase, “strength does not come from bodily ability but from the will of the soul”, which marked the way. Saul kissed him, as in so many other great nights in Europe.The impossible was how Atlético went to the game. He grabbed him by the flap instead of letting him bury him. As if Simeone had opened a boat full of wasps. The rojiblancos itched, the rojiblancos bit. Quarters, quarters, all his boots seemed screaming. His multiplied soccer players. Breads and fish, heads and legs. They were everywhere. Overwhelming, he took the ball from Liverpool. At four minutes, that corner, so many times the shovel with which this Atleti dug the rival’s grave. Koke threw it, the ball touched on Fabinho and was killed so that a boot he will shoot her at the goal of Alisson like a bullet straight to the heart. That of that player who raised his fist. Saúl Ñíguez, who only knows how to score important goals. 1-0 The impossible come true. Simeone raised her arms in a grinder, asking for more voice, thrust of throats. Llorente slipped away in a Maradonian race, Liverpool was no longer drowning the same. Even Klopp lost his smile. He removed Salah and Henderson was injured while he heard the Ale, ale, aleee. There was Costa, in the band, 100 days later. The beast to play the last fifteen minutes. Atletico were the last minutes, Atletico and Vitolo races. Getting that question old again. “Dad, why are we from Atleti?” For parties like this, son. For this coach who again made the widest shirt, the reddest stripes. For his players, all his players. Again, another one. Because his team achieved the impossible, beat Liverpool the first 90 minutes of this tie on another night like those, of pure emotion, of struggle, of delivery. Athletic night. And the team walking on their favorite path. The heroic. Who said impossible? That’s how Anfield faces.center_img CardsReferee: Szymon MarciniakVAR Referee: Pawel GilMane (39 ‘, Yellow) belt (44 ‘, Yellow) Joe Gomez (58 ‘, Yellow After the blow, the answer. Because there was, immediate. Liverpool took the ball, embracing Atlético in their area. A Liverpool forced to play and play, without depth. The ball did not reach Firmino, Fabinho played with the blinded halls, Atlético survived comfortable battleship. The centers of Robertson and Alexander Arnold were always with a rival leg, Mané was not in the forest of men of Cholo and Salah either. His clearest chance in the first part, he met Felipe’s head: in recent times there is no better insurance. He made an extraordinary match. Other.The Cholo had surprised from the same booth. Vrsaljko holder, Arias discard. Lemar too. But not the Lemar of recent months, that without confidence, who weighed the shirt, legs and shield and only needed to write his notice at the Atleti. No, not that. It was the other Lemar, that of the Tallinn Super Cup, that looked like a mirage. Good in the game and better to help. Between him and Lodi they ate Alexander Arnold.last_img read more

Lyon, Dortmund and Arsenal, attentive to Gelabert’s future in Madrid

first_imgCésar Gelabert, one of the biggest pearls of ‘La Fábrica’, ends his contract with Madrid in 2021 and several teams are pending his situation. French Lyon have reports of him from his first youth season. In fact, they even made a formal offer, but Madrid rejected it and they are still aware of its progression and future.Gelabert’s interest in Europe has not only been in France, but also in England. Arsenal is also pending if the youth squad finally does not renew with the white entity. Arteta followed closely behind when Cesar played against Chelsea and Tottenham (where he scored a great goal) in the Youth League. The Gunner technician has come back for him.Precisely, it was in the Youth League where Borussia Dortmund fell in love in a match against them, where by the way was also Sancho and Isak. The Germans have good reports on the Madridista youth squad and have not lost sight of him since that meeting. These three teams have also seen how several First and Second Division entities have probed their situation. Gelabert is one of the largest pearls in the quarry. In fact, it is vital for Raúl from his return to the playing fields. In the youth stage he was going to be the only youth squad (of that age) to travel with Lopetegui, but an injury prevented him. While in the selection is indisputable in the Sub 19 and already looking to debut with the Sub 21.last_img read more

Win puts new life into West Indies cricket – Heaven

first_img DESERVE RESPECT President of the Jamaica Cricket Association Trevor ‘Billy’ Heaven believes the double victory by the West Indies men’s and women’s teams in the finals of the International Cricket Council’s T20 World Cup in Kolkata, India, yesterday has put new life into the Caribbean game. Captained by Jamaican player of the tournament, Stafanie Taylor, the Windies women won their first-ever T20 World Cup title, defeating Australia by eight wickets. A few hours later, the West Indies men’s team, with a mature knock from Marlon Samuels, won the ICC Men’s T20 title, defeating England in their final. “I want to commend the teams for giving us a double on the day, and I think both achievements were very, very remarkable and they put some new life in the West Indies,” Heaven said. Heaven also felt that it was an important moment for the Caribbean game. “If you look in the various territories at the turnout at the different venues and the different spots, it was simply fantastic. They went out there determined and they went out there knowing they have the talent, skills and determination to win that final, and from that standpoint, I think it’s a fantastic day.” Heaven said it was time for the West Indies women’s cricket team to be given the respect they deserve by the Caribbean people. “It’s a remarkable and historic occasion for women’s cricket in the world, and if you look at the teams they defeated, Australia, whether it’s the women’s team or the men’s team, Australia is always difficult to beat, so it’s a really difficult feat,” he added. “The women were motivated and they worked together as a team and they gave it their all. (Hayley) Matthews is a great talent going forward. She played a very mature game and supported Stafanie in a great way,” he noted. Heaven also singled out Samuels and Carlos Brathwaite, who hit four straight sixes to save the West Indies who entered the final over needing 19 runs to win. “Marlon Samuels played a very, very mature and brilliant innings. He read the game well. He knew he had to stay there, and irrespective of Brathwaite’s heroics in the last over, I believe Marlon set up the victory. Marlon stood there and he knew he had to be there at the end if West Indies had any chance at all of winning the cup,” he said. “That was Marlon at his best,” he added. He pointed out that the West Indies is the only men’s team to have won the T20 World Cup twice. “That’s also an achievement on our part,” he said. Meanwhile, Peter Lloyd, group marketing director of team sponsors, Digicel, said the telecommunications company was delighted with the teams continued success. “The ‘Windies’ teams fought hard and were rewarded with well-deserved wins against England and Australia – both formidable opponents. We wish all the West Indies teams continued success as we look to continue supporting them through our partnership with the West Indies Cricket Board.”last_img read more

Sparman dodges question on Fire Advisory Board status

first_imgCoI into deadly prison riotThe Fire Service’s implementation of measures outlined in the Fire Prevention Act was scrutinised at Tuesday’s hearing of the Commission of Inquiry (CoI) into the death of 17 prisoners at the Camp Street Prison. In the cross-examination, Attorney Christopher Ram sought to determine whether the Fire Service indeed observed all of the Standard Operating Procedures.Officer in Charge of Operations Compton Sparman continued his testimony at Tuesday’s CoIRam grilled the Officer in Charge of Operations, Compton Sparman, over the Fire Service’s operations on the day of the deadly prison fire and questioned him over what he knows about the Fire Prevention Act, Chapter 22:01; more particularly, Section 3 of that Act, which stipulates that a Fire Advisory Board be established. Sparman however avoided the questions regarding the body’s status.“That decision would be made with the Chief Fire Officer, I know for sure a board supposed to be in place but whether it is functioning or not, it is not within my remit to make such a statement,” the Officer in Charge of Operations stated.The attorney then asked the witness if he was aware that the Chief Fire Officer or any inspector could enter the premises for inspection purposes where there is a danger of an outbreak of fire.“I am perfectly aware,” responded Sparman. He related that he has general knowledge of the inside of the prison based on prior inspections but could not state when the last inspection of the Georgetown prison was done.In Monday’s testimony, Sparman told Commissioners that firemen could not rescue the burning inmates since the Prison Service was giving the orders. On Tuesday, the Fire Officer suggested that “certainly” the high prison population increased the potential for loss of life as was the case of the March 3 fire.In re-examination by Attorney representing the Joint Services, Eusi Anderson, Sparman reiterated that fire fighters used some caution in their approach to the deadly blaze as they could have been trapped due to the “raucous behaviour” of the inmates and the layout of the Georgetown prison.Throughout this week, witnesses from the Joint Services will continue to give their testimonies.last_img read more

Passport Division Steps Up Passport Procedure

first_imgThe Passport Division at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs has stepped up the processing of passport to enable passport seekers to get their passport on time and with no further embarrassment or delay.The division was on Wednesday, March 23, 2016 processed over 130 passports within the period of 4 hours, something that really impressed those who went through the process.The sharp improvement in the process is a welcome development to many who claim that they had lost hundreds of dollars to bogus individuals within the passport division who had begun to exploit applicants’ limited knowledge about the process of obtaining an ECOWAS biometric passport. The Daily Observer caught wind of the situation and broke the story coupled with an editorial on Tuesday, prompting the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to respond quickly by fixing the situation and issuing a public response. Though the Ministry of Foreign Affairs did not confirm nor deny the Daily Observer report, it issued a statement insisting that the Ministry has “a strong policy in place to discourage employees from extorting money from passport applicants. There are clear notices placed all around the Division of Passports indicating the processes of obtaining a Liberian passport, the fees charged and the duration it would take to receive an ECOWAS Biometric Passport.The Ministry said it was taken aback by the Daily Observer report, and wondered why the newspaper did not report alleged acts of extortion and corruption to the passport director. The Ministry however ignored the glaring fact that, prior to the publication, there were long lines of people grumbling about the delays with their passport applications, especially when the entire process should take no more than three days. A full expose on the corruption in the passport division is coming soon for the benefit of the Ministry, which appears to be in denial, and for the general public. “The Division always encourages applicants not to give money or bribes to anyone who is performing his/her official duties and preferably encourages that an applicant goes through the process in person,” they said. “Passport officers, including the Director of Passports, are identified by their uniform, and once in the uniform of the Passport Division, the person is considered an employee of government and is paid to render services to the public where assigned “free of charge”.To the surprise of those who went through the process on Wednesday, the Director of Passport announced that 50 of the passports processed on Wednesday would be delivered by March 24, 2016 at about noon. She added that the remaining applicants will receive their passports by 12 p.m. today Friday, March 25.She, however, warned passport seekers to bear patience while going through the process of obtaining their passport.She said, besides the US$ 50 paid for passport there is no other fees attached, adding, “the application form is absolutely free and if you don’t understand anything, please contact me, but give any money to anyone.”There was no difficulty in the distribution of application forms as has been complained by many passport seekers before,” one of the applicants said.This reporter saw a long cue of passport seekers, waiting for form, but within 30 minutes time, all of them got their forms and left.For those living in the US and other places around the world, she said, US$ 205 was charged for passports and the processing can only be done in Liberia, before it can be sent through DHL to the Liberian embassy for those who applied to get their passport. “We encourage passport applicants to report all such criminal behavior by pointing out persons engaged in these unwholesome acts to the authorities of the Division of Passport for immediate redress,” the Ministry says. “Likewise, we also encourage clients to follow the processes outlined on these official notices spread around the Passport Division for easy reference; in fact undertake the task themselves.“Let us once again state to passport applicants: The fees for ALL Liberian ECOWAS Biometric Passports issued in Liberia remains US$50 ONLY. Applicants are cautioned NOT TO pay extra monies to individuals in order to initiate or expedite the process. Kindly feel free to deposit all complaints, recommendations and a telephone number in the Suggestion Box posted all around the Passport Bureau. Any applicant paying additional charges to anyone is doing so at his or her own risk. Please be forewarned.”Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

MP demands reason for scrapping Demerara Bridge tender

first_imgFinance Minister Winston Jordan has recently been reported in sections of the media as revealing that Government has decided to issue a new “request for proposals for the new Demerara Harbour Bridge” in the wake of an examination of previous requests.This means that previous proposals largely centred on a three-lane bridge across the river have been scrapped.In an interview with this publication, Opposition Member of Parliament Juan Edghill has urged Government to come clean on the matter.“I am surprised that, with a project of such magnitude, the Minister of Public Infrastructure did not notify the Guyanese people that the project as envisaged for the three-lane bridge would conclude by way of an annulment,” Edghill declared.The artistic model for the three lane bridge“The last words of the Minister were that three companies would be selected from the companies who bid, and they would be asked to submit proposals, including for financing the bridge. And he had given a particular timeline,” Edghill reminded.According to Edghill, this development is indicative of three things: that the Government has no policy direction in the public infrastructure sector; that Govt is prone to making ad hoc decisions; and that Govt follows a pattern of annulling tenders.He was here referring to the Guyana Power and Light’s (GPL’s) $3 billion tender for the installation of smart meters and transmission lines which Government annulled a few months ago.“It would appear that unless they get a specific outcome, or they are allowed to get away with their underhand dealings, their (preference) is to annul and start all over. If it was the case where they wanted a four-lane, six-span bridge, we of the PPP have been saying to them that is the way to go. They were talking about cost,” Edghill explained.“Why would the Government want to invest US$170 million on a three-lane, retractable bridge? And we always wanted to know why. But they have been caught with their pants down, and the only way they can deal with it is annul and go for a four-lane bridge. I would specifically like to hear the Minister of Public Infrastructure give the rationale for the annulment,” he declared.Edghill questioned why Government was only now going for the four-lane bridge model. He also queried at what level the decision to annul the tender was made, and what led to the annulment.Attempts by this publication to make contact with Public Infrastructure Minister David Patterson and junior subject Minister Annette Ferguson were futile.Last year, a feasibility study and design for the new Demerara River Bridge had reportedly cost some $146.3 million. It was presented to Minister within the Public Infrastructure Ministry, Annette Ferguson.The 57-page final report was done by Dutch company LievenseCSO. The project team had included officials from the Demerara Harbour Bridge Corporation and Transport and Harbours Department.It is understood that the feasibility study had determined the proposed location of Houston-Versailles was the most ideal. It is also understood that a low-level bridge with a movable part and three-lanes was recommended for construction.Another study had been completed back in 2013, when the Demerara Harbour Bridge Corporation had collaborated with the then Public Works Ministry to carry out a pre-feasibility analysis. That study had concluded that a ‘fixed, high level’ bridge was the best option to pursue, rather than the retractable model, echoing the most recent recommendations made by Consultants Rameshwar.The “fixed, high level” option would ensure that traffic would be able to flow even while boats passed underneath the structure. The bridge presently operates according to schedule in order to cater for marine traffic.There have traditionally been lengthy traffic lines during rush hour, as motorists hurry to catch the bridge before it closes. It was to solve these traffic woes and to cater for the advanced age of the Demerara Harbour Bridge structure that a new bridge has been contemplated.According to the 2013 report, consultations were carried out with various private sector agencies and non- governmental organisations (NGO) representing cross sections of the production and manufacturing sectors in Guyana. Those consultations, the report details, were to obtain valuable data to complete the report, introduce stakeholders to the new Demerara River Crossing concept, and garner feedback that could potentially influence the project.last_img read more

High school bond effort to continue

first_imgLANCASTER – Antelope Valley voters will be asked in June to pass a $177 million bond measure to expand and improve high schools and to build two new ones. The new bonds would annually cost property owners in the Antelope Valley Union High School District about $30 per $100,000 assessed valuation, which is slightly higher than what they already pay on a bond measure passed by voters in 2002. “We have some work to sell this,” trustee Al Beattie said. “I’m confident people will be happy with the results we have accomplished since the last bond (measure) was approved. I think most people do not want to see schools overcrowded. They realize the importance of having smaller campuses to get a better-quality education.” By the time construction starts, it is estimated that new high schools will cost $110 million to $120 million each. By contrast, Knight High School, which opened in 2003, cost about $76 million, and Eastside High, which is under construction, will cost about $100 million. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORECasino Insider: Here’s a look at San Manuel’s new high limit rooms, Asian restaurant District officials want to build one high school in southeast Palmdale and the other in northwest Lancaster or in southwest Palmdale’s Ritter Ranch master-planned community. State funds will cover about half the cost, and some money will come from fees on new homes. The high school board voted unanimously at Wednesday night’s meeting to place the bond measure on the June 6 ballot. District officials had initially considered putting it on the November ballot but decided against it because that is when voters will decide on state bond proposals to finance Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger’s massive public-works rebuilding project. School district officials will try to pass their measure under Proposition 39, which requires a 55 percent majority, rather than two-thirds. A district poll of 600 registered voters found 53 percent of the respondents supported and 39 percent opposed passage of a bond measure at the $30 tax rate, with a margin of error of plus or minus 3 percent, Beattie said. “We need space for our kids. We are short of space for students. We just need to get caught up,” trustee Jim Lott said. “We are trying to make sure we have enough housing for the students. As of right now, we are running behind.” Besides building two more schools, the bonds also would pay for converting three classrooms into two science labs at Lancaster High School, adding classrooms and parking at Quartz Hill High School, completing the construction of Eastside High, upgrading lighting and handicapped accessibility at various schools and doing preliminary work for the district’s 11th comprehensive campus, officials said. On the June ballot, the high school bond measure could be listed beside elementary school bond measures in parts of the Antelope Valley. Lancaster and Westside Union school district officials are also considering bond measures for June, but have not made final decisions. If all three pass, Lancaster and Westside property owners would have to pay for the Antelope Valley Union High School District bond measure as well as their local elementary district bonds. The elementary school districts are within the high school district’s boundary. Money from the $103.6 million high school bond issue approved in March 2002 will be gone after construction of Eastside High, the district’s eighth comprehensive high school. Money from that measure also went toward building Knight High School, modernizing three high schools and constructing three alternative campuses. Beattie believes taxpayers are paying about $28 per $100,000 assessed valuation on the 2002 bond measure.
