The trident of the Champions

first_imgNow the Portuguese is gone. And with him the goal went away. The top scorer of this Madrid is Benzema (18). And behind him, Ramos (7). In the double season (16-17) the Madrid of Zidane averaged 2.8 goals per game. In this one makes one less per game. That is why, with Hazard’s return, the trident has also returned to Madrid, and with the Belgian he has installed himself Bale, the player with the most fang for the goal of the squad. After the BBC comes the BBH. Only a couple of delays in defense made the bet end in wreck. For Zidane, Rodrygo is a midfielder, Lucas Vázquez a secondary actor Y Vinicius has no goal. Therefore Bale still important to him and insists on retrieve it The French coach wants his own trident, how Klopp has yours with Mané, Firmino and Salah, one like that of Barça with Messi, Luis Suarez and Griezmann or like that of Tuchel with Mbappé, Icardi and Neymar. Like the one who had Ancelotti (Bale, Benzema and Cristiano), the BBC what was it “non-negotiable“For the Italian and then inherited himself. But on that team inherited by Zidane was Cristiano, the man of 450 goals in 438 games, and ended up dispensing with Bale in the starting eleven of his last two Champions won. That Zidane was around Madrid with the Bbh for the big occasions it is demonstrated by the fact that it was his bet for the first big game of the season, before the PSG in the Park of the Princes. But he was too ambitious and placed James next to Casemiro and Kroos. He fell 3-0 with a crash. And even so, Zidane he scored the same eleven in the next game, in a whole Sánchez Pizjuán (0-1 this time). The coach repeated trident against Atlético en Liga (0-0), another big game. This time with Casemiro-Valverde-Kroos. And it worked… Until yesterday, because of the injuries chained by Bale and Hazard, I had not been able to repeat the experiment.center_img On the field. Bale left applauded the Bernabéu without making an important match. The fans rewarded their efforts more than their success, to be seen making a coverage to Carvajal in the 78th minute or he would not hesitate to play the expulsion to cut a counter with a hard foul to Rafinha behind. Hazard He weighed more for his band even than the Welshman. He formed a magic triangle with Marcelo (Gave him 13 passes!) And Benzema (7). On the horizon is the Classic and the City… It only remains to see if Zidane He really wants his own trident. But it points to the Champions.last_img read more

Athletic, Real and FEF agree on a Cup final with the public

first_imgFortunately, sanity has prevailed and although Athletic and Real Sociedad had distanced themselves in recent days for trying to defend their interests in the final of the Copa del Rey, they have chosen to walk together to have more strength. Aperribay and Elizegi have met with Rubiales and have agreed to request the RFEF that the appointment of La Cartuja can be held with the public and officially, open door, at a future date to be determined by agreement between the three parties.“The desire and the will of both clubs has always been, now and before, to play the final with the presence of our fans and fans. It is what we would like most. A Cup final with our fans in the stands,” argue the responsible for both entities in a joint note. Ibaigane published a very lukewarm statement last week, somewhat criticized by fans and the team itself, and has waited a few days to join positions with its eternal rival.At the same time, Athletic and Real Sociedad they want the RFEF “to guarantee that the Cup final will be played as an official competition and will be considered an official title”. To do this, they have requested the General Secretariat of the RFEF that the Delegate Commission of the General Assembly of the RFEF, whose next meeting will be held on Friday, take an agreement to modify the calendar that enables the Cup final to be held as Official title with the presence of followers of both teams. The Federation devised a plan to move the final until the spring of 2021, reserving a European place for the representative of the competition, which could even be both if one of the contestants obtained a ticket for Europe through the League, but the UEFA put that idea down. Now it is a matter of resuming that initiative with the approval of the national body. Everything indicates that it will not be so and the seventh of the League (right now Valencia) would go to Europe. The two main Basque clubs stress that with this decision, they want “to value one of the most prestigious and traditional sporting events that can be played in world football, unique in this edition and to do it together with their followers, followers, subscribers , subscribers, partners and partners, the true essence and raison d’être of this wonderful sport. “RFEF: approval for a final with an audience either in 2020 or 2021The Federation shares the desire of the Cup finalists and will do everything possible so that the final is played with the public. This is the statement issued by the RFEF positioning itself with Real and Athletic.“The RFEF fully shares the desire of the Athletic Club and the Real Sociedad clubs to play the Final of the Copa del SM el Rey when health and sports circumstances allow the Final to be held open to the public and with the presence of both fans and everyone those fans who wish to attend.The Royal House and the Trophy with the greatest roots and tradition in Spanish football deserve a final with an audience. For this, the RFEF thanks the decision and the joint request of both clubs and will articulate the necessary regulatory mechanisms so that the Final of the Copa del SM el Rey is played as an official competition at the right time during the year 2020 or 2021 and always before the Final of the 2020/2021 Season is disputed. The RFEF will set, in common agreement with Real Sociedad and Athletic Club, the most convenient date for said Final to be the great celebration of Spanish football. “last_img read more

McIlroy eyes Masters at Pebble Beach Pro-Am

first_imgMcIlroy, who returned to the top 10 last month after failing to win an event last year for the first time in nearly a decade, said he had taken positives from recent results.His runner-up spot in Dubai came after he blew a two-shot lead down the stretch to give China’s Li Haotong the biggest win of his career.However McIlroy said simply being in position to win had been encouraging.“I had two chances to win golf tournaments and I didn’t,” McIlroy said of his performances in Abu Dhabi and Dubai.“But great building blocks. I don’t want to dwell on them too much — I take them for what they are, which are good performances in a couple of pretty solid golf tournaments.“They were two good confidence builders going into this part of the season,” the four-time Major winner added.“I feel like the best way to prepare you for a big week like the Masters is to be in contention, feeling those nerves down the stretch. I feel like the more I play, the more chance I’m going to give myself to be in that position,” added McIlroy, who is playing this week’s tournament in California for the first time.Another former world number one, Australia’s Jason Day, is also satisfied with his form ahead of Pebble Beach.Day returned to the top 10 in the world rankings last month after defeating Alex Noren in a play-off at the Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines. It was the Australian’s first title since the 2016 Players Championship.Day told reporters Wednesday he was eager to add to his career tally of 11 PGA Tour wins and one major.“Every mindset that I take into every tournament should be like, ‘This could be my last tournament,’” Day said.“Because I don’t know what’s happening around the corner. My back could be gone, and I may not be able to pick up a golf club again.“I need to go and try and win every single event, because who knows what’s going to happen around the corner.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Rory McIlroy of Northern Ireland plays a shot during the Dubai Desert Classic at Emirates Golf Club on January 28, 2018 © AFP/File / GIUSEPPE CACACESAN FRANCISCO, United States, Feb 8 – Former world number one Rory McIlroy is hoping to build on recent near-misses in Abu Dhabi and Dubai as he steps up his Masters preparation on Thursday at the PGA Tour’s Pebble Beach Pro-Am.The Northern Irish star has enjoyed a solid start to the year, finishing in a tie for third at the Abu Dhabi Championship last month before a second place at the Dubai Desert Classic.last_img read more

Alaska Peninsula state oil, gas leases sold

first_img Shell submitted identical bids of $5.02 per acre generating $28,911 per tract on its 33 successful bids. Hewitt bid $21.14 per acre, and a total of $121,767 each, for two tracts. It bid $6.11 per acre for two other tracts. The 10-year leases have a fixed royalty rate of 12.5 percent. Local support for the sale contributed to preparing lease details in two years rather than the usual three, said Mark Myers, director of the Alaska Division of Oil and Gas. The communities want local energy supplies and a stimulus to the economy, he said. The state and communities negotiated restrictions to protect the environment but still make drilling viable, Myers said. The leases ban offshore drilling. ANCHORAGE, Alaska – The first sale of state oil and gas leases in 22 years on the Alaska Peninsula generated 37 bids Wednesday, with a major oil company winning the most. Shell Offshore Inc., part of Shell Exploration & Production Co., was the high bidder on 33 tracts, all centered near Port Moeller. The site is southeast of Nelson Lagoon, about 580 miles southwest of Anchorage. Hewitt Mineral Corp. of Ardmore, Okla., was high bidder on four tracts in the same area. Alaska offered 1,047 tracts covering about 5.8 million acres, an area about the size of New Hampshire. The sale acreage available stretched from the Nushagak Peninsula in the north, down the north side of the Alaska Peninsula, to an area north of Cold Bay, including offshore tracts. The bids generated about $1.3 million. The minimum bid was $5 per acre. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations!
