The Super Cup gives another chance to Simeone against Barça

first_imgSticking to the tournament in liza this week in Saudi Arabia, Simeone and the azulgrana already saw their faces in another Super Cup of Spain, with the classic round trip format. It was in 2014 and the two matches ended in a draw: 1-1 at Calderón (Villa and Neymar) and 0-0 at Camp Nou. Barça took home the trophy.The league is where the differences become very evident, although Atlético more than compensates that one of the draws that have scratched Barça served to win the 2014 League at the Camp Nou. But it has not added not a triumph in the 16 games disputed in nine different seasons and before five Barca technicians (Guardiola, Vilanova, Martino, Luis Enrique and Valverde). In addition to that 1-1 (Godín’s head goal) that earned a title, the rojiblancos have taken four other draws and have lost eleven games, the last one a little over a month ago in the Metropolitan. Messi undid the 0-0 with a goal in the 86th minute. In the Cup, Barça has eliminated Atleti twice of Simeone: in the quarters of the 14-15, double Barça victory (1-0 and 2-3, the one of the boot of Arda thrown towards the line judge), and the semifinals of the 16-17, 1-2 at Calderón and 1-1 at Camp Nou, with Gameiro missing a penalty. So, this afternoon, Cholo faces the 23rd attempt to beat Barça …Cholo beat Athletic and Madrid in neutral field outside SpainThis Spanish Super Cup that is played outside the borders is a novelty, but for Atlético del Cholo it is not measured against a compatriot team on neutral ground abroad. In fact it will be the fifth time it happens, although the first time the winner does not take a title. In 2012, the rojiblancos beat Athletic (3-0) in Bucharest in the final of the Europa League. In the following even years he returned to play finals. In 2014 and 2016, of Champions against Real Madrid, that of Lisbon lost it in extra time and that of Milan, in penalties. Against the whites he repeated in Tallinn in 2018, in this case for the European Super Cup, and then they won the Cholo, 4-2 also in extra time. The team that is resisting Simeone as coach of Atlético is Barça. The Cholo has not won neither in League nor in Cup, nor in Supercopa. Since 2012 they have succeeded 22 clashes In the national competition and the best that the rojiblanco team has drawn has been eight draws. The rest, fourteen defeats. In Champions it has had better luck, with two victories del Atleti – both in Calderón – in four games and two Barça eliminations in the quarterfinals.last_img read more

Marcos Llorente: more gallons in case Saúl or Thomas left

first_imgAnd here appears Marcos Llorente, footballer who signed Atlético this past summer for about 40 million euros. Marcos Llorente has been this season in the shadow of both Saúl and Thomas and Koke. Simeone placed him in the double pivot, although with the passage of the games he also placed him in the band, where he has performed well. If Saúl or Thomas were not still in the team, Marcos Llorente would have to assume more prominence. This season is helping him to adapt to the team and to adapt to the game system of Simeone. In the 2020-21 campaign he must be one of those who carry the weight of the team.Marcos Llorente signed for five seasons, has a contract until June 2024. At 25 he is at his best at Atlético after his two goals against Liverpool at Anfield. So many that exalted him in the face of the red and white fans. The footballer, for his part, always said that he was delighted at Atlético and that he had succeeded with his signing by the entity of Wanda Metropolitan. Marcos Llorente has played 24 official competition matches (18 in LaLiga, three in Champions, two in the Spanish Super Cup and one in the Cup). He has scored three goals, one in the league championship and two in the Champions League. And given an assist, in Champions. He has played a total of 986 minutes. And nobody doubts anymore that the best of Marcos Llorente in Atlético is yet to come. Thomas is another of the midfielders whose future still seems in the air. The Ghanaian is a very important part of Atlético de Simeone, he has a renewal offer on the table, but he has not yet signed it. In the club they trust that he will do so and can continue at Atletico for several more seasons. But from the Premier it is also indicated that it could end there, since it has a large cartel. Its clause is 50 million euros, an amount that English clubs could pay.s. There is an Atlético player who can play a much bigger role next season if there is an important move within the rojiblanca squad. Marcos Llorente will have more gallons during the next exercise. The rojiblanco midfielder has gone from less to more this season, he started somewhat hesitantly, but has performed well in the second half of the year and will be a very outstanding footballer in the next campaign. And more if finally one of the players comes out of the midfield.Saúl continues to sound very strong as Manchester United’s future. From England, it is said day and day that the Atletico midfielder could leave this summer for the Premier club. Manchester could lose Pogba and Saúl would take the Frenchman’s place. The clause of the Atlético player is 150 million, although Manchester would never reach it. AS already pointed out a few days ago that the English entity could reach a maximum of 80 million.last_img read more

Developer to seek city OK of smaller Whole Foods

first_imgProject consultant Michael Hastings said the developer spent three weeks with city planners after the rejection to look for alternative sites, but did not find one that suited the Austin, Texas-based organic grocer. Rather than abandon the project, the firm is making one more push for a store at Alameda and Main Street, he said Friday. “You want to be able to satisfy the public and bring them the services that they’ve requested, even if you have to keep fighting and keep fighting to come up with a plan that works,” said Hastings, who is also a former city councilman. But project opponents have cried foul, believing the council already decided the issue. “We feel betrayed,” said Roman Gora, a Rancho resident and Whole Foods opposition leader who believes the grocer would bring excess traffic and other problems to a neighborhood where homes come with backyard stables. “We followed due process; we followed the rules. The decision was 3-2,” he said. “The discussion about a smaller store is not an issue here. It’s about `Let’s confirm the verbiage,’ not about considering a 40,000-square-foot store.” Davies originally planned a 60,000-square-foot store with two levels of subterranean parking on the 76,000-square-foot site now occupied by an office building. The city’s Planning Board rejected the project, saying it would be incompatible with the neighborhood. While appealing the decision before the City Council, the developer heeded concerns from Councilman David Golonski and opponents about the store’s size, and reduced it to 52,340 square feet. Davies had said the market can’t be any smaller, but Golonski, who suggested paring the building down to 40,000 square feet, held firm and eventually voted against the project. Gora said the last-minute change was disingenuous. “If that was the case, he should’ve said yes at that point,” he said. “It’s just not fair to the public.” Hastings disagreed. “They should be pleased that they have won another victory to bring us back at 40,000 square feet,” he said. “We’re working off their perceptions of fear, and hopefully this will take them out of that mode.” But Gora insisted that even the smaller market doesn’t address concerns about traffic congestion and safety for area residents and equestrians. “Even if you have a smaller store, you’re still going to have another traffic nightmare,” he said. eugene.tong@dailynews.com (818) 546-3304160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! BURBANK – Despite rejections from City Hall, a proposal to build a Whole Foods Market in the Rancho equestrian district refuses to go away. In what may be a last-ditch effort to convince a City Council majority to get behind the project at 901 W. Alameda Ave., developer Tom Davies is pitching a 40,000-square-foot store – about two-thirds the size of the original plan. Though the council on Feb. 20 shot down the controversial project in a 3-2 vote, the refusal won’t be final until the panel formalizes the decision in a resolution, an act scheduled Tuesday. It’ll be up to the council members whether they want to reconsider, though it’s rare for a developer to appeal a project at this late stage, city planner Greg Herrmann said. last_img

BC Hydro refutes PVLA claims against Site C

first_imgOther costs associated with a delay in construction include inflation, interest rates, and disruption costs for work that has already started being stopped and started again. All of these things, said Conway, would likely be passed on to the rate payers.Finally, Conway said, the current economic conditions are ideal for building such a big project. Low interest rates, a slow-down in a number of industrial sectors, and there are workers available.“Who knows what the situation would be two years from now.” “First of all,” said Dave Conway, Community Relations Manager for Site C, “we do integrated resource planning, or IRP, which is a 20-year look out in regards to BC Hydro’s energy capacity and needs. We look at all the commercially available sources of electricity – including things like solar, wind, biomass and natural gas – and we file an IRP with the government.”The IRP that BC Hydro filed, was independently reviewed in 2014 by the Joint Review Panel. The Panel concluded that Site C could deliver energy at a considerably lower cost than any of the other options. Site C is a source of clean, renewable energy, said Conway, and although electricity is not emissions free, it has lower Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions per GW hour than most other options. The Joint Review Panel also concluded that Site C would be the least expensive of all the other options.“When you look at the cost analysis for the project, from the IRP,” said Conway, “that analysis has been independently reviewed by KPMG and a third-party reviewer, Synapse Energy Economics, and Synapse concluded that our alternative analysis, methodology and tools were consistent with good utility practices.”- Advertisement -“We have very strong confidence that our modelling is appropriate.”Conway said that BC Hydro’s analysis shows that a delay of the project for two years would result in a higher cost to rate payers, not a savings as the PVLA claimed.If Hydro delayed the project for two years, it would have to go looking for energy to meet the needs in 2023, instead of providing it from Site C. “Can you get it at the time that you need it?” asked Conway. The price of purchasing the electricity could be much more expensive by then also.Advertisementlast_img read more

Liverpool FC news: Jurgen Klopp signs new SIX-YEAR contract

first_img Jurgen Klopp 1 Jurgen Klopp has signed a new contract with Liverpool which ties him to the club until 2022.The German was only appointed Reds boss nine months ago on a three-year deal.He led predecessor Brendan Rodgers’ squad to the Europa League and Capital One Cup final and is a hugely popular figure at Anfield.The relationship forged between Klopp and senior figures John W Henry, principal owner, Liverpool chairman Tom Werner and Fenway Sports Group president Mike Gordon is already a strong one with a great degree of trust on both sides with the manager happy to work within the structure the Americans implemented at Anfield.Now they have demonstrated their faith in the 49-year-old by handing him a fresh six-year contract.Klopp’s senior backroom staff who followed him from Borussia Dortmund, Zeljko Buvac and Peter Krawietz, have also signed extensions.“When you have an individual of Jurgen’s quality in the building it makes perfect sense to secure that person for the long term. To not do so would be irresponsible,” said a joint statement from Henry, Werner and Gordon.“The overriding motivation behind this decision is Jurgen’s commitment to overall improvement and development.“In Jurgen we have someone who is always looking ahead, always looking beyond his own wants and needs and putting the club first.“The ideas and plans he has for the football infrastructure excite us and we believe it benefits the organisation to have Jurgen committed to Liverpool for a sustained period, to make sure he is here to oversee this development.“By making this commitment to him, we are taking away any future distractions or doubt.“We will move forward in partnership together, with confidence in each other and with the club’s future at the forefront of every decision.“He is a world-class managerial talent and his leadership will be critical to everything we hope to achieve in the years ahead.”Klopp’s new contract gives him the platform to plan long-term for the future with confidence.“It’s hard to express in words how honoured myself, Zeljko and Peter feel by the commitment shown in us by the ownership and the club in general,” he said.“We are very much at the beginning of our journey, but to already have the connection we have with this very special place is incredible.“I am the first to recognise that with this great commitment comes a great responsibility.“All of our coaching careers we have looked to make teams and clubs better, with the ultimate goal of making the supporters proud and happy.“To do this we have to make sure we always put player and team development at the heart of every major decision.“It is my job to lead that and ensure every element of the LFC football environment reflects the best practices in the game.“It is fantastic that the club’s ownership is just as committed to this as we are.“There is much to do and much to achieve and we look to do this by being the most completely together group anywhere in the world.“That’s everyone and we all have responsibility for it – all of us who are part of this LFC family: players, staff, ownership and of course the supporters.“By being together at all times, we will be stronger, better and our successes sweeter.”last_img read more

DDTV: DONEGAL ISLANDERS FILM ON FISHING BAN TO BE SCREENED IN PARIS

first_imgAN award-winning documentary on how Europe turned over our Donegal islanders with outrageous fishing bans is to be shown in Paris next week.The Irish Cultural Centre and Irish Embassy in Paris are hosting a special screening of A Turning Tide in the Life of Man in the French capital at the cinéma Les 3 Luxembourg (67, rue Monsieur le Prince – 75006 Paris) on October 13th at 7.30pm. The film retraces the origin of the global problems the small fishermen are facing today, the complexity of such political decisions and the consequences for the lives of small coastal communities, emanating from the implementation of the Salmon Ban and other EU Regulations over the years.Since 2006, islanders from the communities of Árainn Mhór Island, Inis Bo Finne and Tory Island, in Donegal, Ireland, together with experts from around the world, have been working on common documents and actions that will help them to survive Government-led policies, and allowed them to participate in the writing of new reform of the fishing policy which was put in place in 2014 for all European countries.Lead by one fisherman’s voice, John O’Brien, we follow John’s very personal journey with his family and friends from Árainn Mhór Island and Tory Island over 8 years.The film sees their efforts to survive and their long quest to find answers to their questions; traveling, meeting with politicians, gathering together other islands communities from all around Europe, querying MEPs, working with International NGOs to understand the political process and convincing those who hold the power to join their fight and make a difference. As John gets closer to the European Parliament circumstances force him into a more important role.He becomes one of the few EU small fishermen representatives and advisor by default in the new reform process.Discovering that he’s only a little piece of a larger puzzle, for the first time, John has to envisage the bigger picture for himself and like the Members of the European Commission, John and his people also have to take into consideration, environmental, economic and social issues. DDTV: DONEGAL ISLANDERS FILM ON FISHING BAN TO BE SCREENED IN PARIS was last modified: October 5th, 2015 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:donegalfilmInisbofinTorylast_img read more
