The eleven of the 30th day of the Diario AS in LaLiga SmartBank

first_imgThe Cádiz midfielder was again essential for his team to take the victory. The leader remains intractable under the baton of an Álex Fernández who scored his eleventh goal of the season. In his goal he was attentive after a rejection, to from the ground, put his foot just enough to accommodate the ball inside the goal.Luis Perea (Alcorcón) The Alcorcón left in the Fernando Torres a first part of First team. Luis Perea was the main architect of this great pottery image. The winter signing has fallen on the Santo Domingo team and, in the blue feud, signed a brilliant performance being outstanding in recovering the ball. In addition, he rounded his game with two goals to the ball stopped.Borja (Oviedo) The defender of Las Palmas premiered his scoring account against Malaga, with a powerful stub at the exit of a corner. Munir could not do anything to avoid both. The island squad also adds an impeccable performance in defense, with eight of nine aerial duels won, a blocked shot and an interception.Lombán (Málaga) The center has been unleashed as a scorer with two goals in the last two days. On this occasion he finished off a corner kick taken by Dani Pacheco, with a perfect header shot with his back to the goal. His goal served to score a point against Las Palmas, in the Gran Canaria stadium.Arrivals (Oviedo) Álex Alegría has given Extremadura what the Almendralejo lacked in the first part of the season: goal. The striker has already scored four goals in the six games he has with the Barca jacket. Their goals are synonymous with points. Before the Huesca, he scored a goal of nine pure with a powerful header on the second stick. The 30th day of LaLiga SmartBankHe had eleven protagonists that we detail below. Okazaki (Huesca) and Luis Perea (Alcorcón) stood out with two doublets. Álex (Cádiz) gave the victory to the leader with his eleventh goal. Hugo Fraile (Fuenlabrada) scored one goal and gave another and the defenses Curbelo (Las Palmas) and Lombán (Málaga) signed the two days of the match that faced both teams.GoalkeeperRené (Ponferradina) Oviedo is in need of points and against Tenerife it achieved an important victory that allows it to continue looking at the permanence. Arribas had a fundamental role in the achievement of the three points, with a defensive performance of carats. He thwarted all the danger that came to him, with four clearances, a blocked shot and three interceptions.MidfieldersÁlex (Cádiz)center_img René completed a great performance against Sporting. The goal yielded by Almeria made five stops, three of them from within the small area. His first intervention was in a shot by Álvaro Vázquez. The last one, key to get the three points, was to clear a foul by Pedro Díaz.DefensesCurbelo (Las Palmas) In this crisis that Fuenlabrada is experiencing, Hugo Fraile is making it clear that he is a player of superior talent and quality. The blue end was one of the main architects of the ‘almost-comeback ‘with his goal and his assistance. The assistance was a tense center for his partner Ibán Salvador and the penalty kick.StrikersOkazaki (Huesca) Albacete seems to wake up from that nightmare in which he lived the last two months of competition. Pedro Sánchez is being his awakening. The former sportsman again saw the door against Rayo Vallecano as he did last day against Numancia. The goal made clear one of its best qualities: the arrival from the second line.Hugo Fraile (Fuenlabrada) The Japanese is being all work and commitment in his first season with the Oscenses. A crucial footballer for Míchel. Before Extremadura, Okazaki signed his first double of the season at a time when Huesca suffers from a goal. Both head, the first, catching with the foot changed to the rival goalkeeper and the second, taking advantage of a space behind the visitor.Joy (Extremadura) Ziganda has in the young Borja one of his best tricks to achieve permanence and the midfielder made it clear with his match against Tenerife. He only needed half an hour to change the face of his team and revolutionize the match. He led the entire offensive game carbayón and also caused the penalty of the only goal of the match.Pedro Sánchez (Albacete)last_img read more

Dr Paul Wright: WI cricket needs overhaul in leadership

first_imgI watched the Test match between the West Indies and Australia recently. I’ve also read various statements and watched interviews from members of the CARICOM subcommittee on cricket and the president of the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB). I thought that the attitude and performance of the players in the Test match were simply disgraceful. I also thought that the attitude and performance of the president of the WICB were simply disgraceful. I think it is disgraceful because the WICB had agreed to the setting up of the CARICOM cricket committee and had selected and placed its own representatives on the body, implying that the recommendations would be binding on the contributing participants. But I forgot that the president of the board had shown time and time again that his word means absolutely nothing as he continues to defy the wishes of every West Indian fan who does not benefit from the decisions of this group of men. Then I saw an interview with one of my favourite batsmen, Virat Kohli, the captain of the victorious Indian Test team that defeated South Africa in their recent Test series. My hero, Kohli, lashed out against critics of his victorious squad, saying, among other things that someone who had never played Test cricket should criticise those who had because it was impossible for them to understand the pressure that these players undergo in a Test match. PUBLIC PRAISES Instead, flaws and deficiency in Test players should be discussed privately with the player, and publicly, players should be praised so as not to bruise their fragile egos. I have never played Test cricket and I have in the past criticised players. So now, according to the wishes of my hero, I will try to find positives when commenting on the activities and performance of cricketers. So here goes: in the Test match between the West Indies and Australia, I thought the quality of bandaging of eight fingers of Marlon Samuels was well done. I particularly liked the way he kept both hands in his pockets, playing with what might have been loose change or marbles, enabling him to know exactly when six balls had been bowled in an over so that he could change his fielding position, slowly, so as not to risk injury. I also noted (with admiration) the way Kemar Roach bowled each ball at a different part of the pitch, keeping the Australian batsmen uncertain as to when he would bowl a ball on a good length and in the so called ‘corridor of uncertainty’. This unconventional and unique tactic ensured that he was not used for more than four overs in the opening session, allowing him a well-earned rest as the other bowlers were slammed all over the ground as record after record was broken, ensuring that when history is written, his name would be among those involved in the massive total of the Australians. Darren Bravo’s innings of 108 and Kraigg Braithwaite’s innings of 94 out of a total of 148 has already been praised by other writers, so I will not highlight those obvious positives in the loss to the Australians. JASONHOLDER’S UNORTHODOX FIELD PLACING I will, however, point out that the unorthodox field placing of the captain, Jason Holder, ensured that he could not be accused of putting any pressure on his Australian hosts during the game (thereby upsetting them), and as a bonus, his field placing ensured that his fellow fielders did not have to go very far to retrieve the balls from the boundary ropes, thus keeping them fresh for other matches in the long tour of Australia. So no one can say that we, who have never played Test cricket, criticised these cricketers, who, according to the president of the West Indies Players Association, Wavell Hinds, earn more money in a year than teachers, nurses, and doctors, as he advised young Jamaican cricketers to choose cricket as a career. The leadership of cricket in the region and the poor performances locally and internationally are inextricably linked. The only way to save cricket is a wholesale removal of the leadership of cricket and concentrating on our Under-19 cricketers. Failure to do this will ensure that the sport will lose its relevancy in the region and internationally.last_img read more

England advance to WT20 semis

first_imgNEW DELHI (AP): Jos Buttler struck an unbeaten 66 and Chris Jordan grabbed 4-28 yesterday to help England knockout defending champions Sri Lanka and advance to the World Twenty20 semi-finals with a 10-run victory. Buttler struck eight fours and two sixes in a blistering 37-ball innings that helped England reach 171-4 in their last Group 1 match, despite struggling at 99-3 off 15 overs after being put in to bat. Sri Lanka collapsed to 15-4 off three overs before captain Angelo Mathews led a spirited fightback with 73 not out before the innings ended on 161-8. The game had looked in England’s control for much of Sri Lanka’s innings before Mathews clobbered five sixes and three fours off 54 balls to take his team to within striking distance. Fifth wicket England spinners Moeen Ali and Adil Rashid conceded 63 runs between them in four overs – each going for 21 in one over – as Sri Lanka got back on track. Mathews added 80 runs for the fifth wicket with Chamara Kapugedera (30) after Tillakaratne Dilshan (2) and Dinesh Chandimal (1) had failed. With 22 runs needed off the last two overs, Jordan conceded just seven runs and took two wickets in the 19th over and Ben Stokes – who hit six valuable runs off his one ball as a batsman – conceded only four in the final over as Mathews decided to keep the strike and go for boundaries. Mathews, who struggled to run towards the end with a hamstring injury, could only manage two sets of two runs in the over as Stokes fired in full-length deliveries. England will face New Zealand in the semi-finals on Wednesday if West Indies beat Afghanistan in their group match.last_img read more

Lowry’s Raptors too hot for Trail Blazers

first_img GRITTY PLAY PORTLAND, Oregon (AP): No matter what city they visit lately, the Toronto Raptors feel right at home. Kyle Lowry scored 27 points and the Raptors won their franchise-best seventh consecutive road game on Monday night with a 95-91 victory over the skidding Portland Trail Blazers. It was the second stop on Toronto’s six-game swing out West, which will take the Raptors (22-8) to tough places such as Golden State and San Antonio. But home or road these days, Toronto is proving to be a very difficult opponent. Though the Raptors’ usually prolific offence was slowed by Portland’s trapping defence, they found a way to pull out a highly competitive game in which neither team led by more than six points. Toronto, had reached 100 points in 16 straight games, used their defence and gritty play during the final five minutes to win their fourth in a row. “A few years ago our guys would have kicked that one away by 15 or 20 points,” Raptors coach Dwane Casey said. Toronto ran into a short-handed but extremely motivated Portland team that ultimately lost their sixth straight. The Blazers (13-20) were without star guard Damian Lillard, who sat out with a sprained ankle. Lillard, averaging 27 points per game, was injured last Friday against San Antonio. C.J. McCollum scored 27 points to lead the Blazers, who have lost 10 of 11. Toronto kept Portland’s runs to a minimum. The Raptors were particularly effective down the stretch, when they took the lead for good at 82-81 with 5:50 remaining on two free throws by Jonas Valanciunas. Toronto, averaging 112 points per game this season, scored only 43 during the first half and had just 22 in the fourth quarter. Portland’s blitzing, trapping defence made life difficult for the Raptors. “Their defensive scheme was unbelievable tonight. Their bigs moved their feet well and I had a couple of turnovers trying to get around them,” Lowry said. Portland coach Terry Stotts said “it might have been our best defensive game of the season. We played with a lot of energy.” Patrick Patterson scored 15 points for Toronto, while Valanciunas had 12 points and 12 rebounds. Mason Plumlee had his fifth double-double of the season with 13 points and 15 rebounds for Portland.last_img read more

Chrysler stock jumps after report of talks with GM

first_imgDETROIT (AP) – U.S. shares of DaimlerChrysler AG jumped more than 4 percent Friday – setting a new 52-week high – after a trade publication reported that General Motors Corp. is in talks to acquire the troubled Chrysler Group. GM and Chrysler officials would not comment on the report by Automotive News, which attributed the story to people in Germany and the U.S. whom it did not identify. Several industry analysts said the speculation drove DaimlerChrysler stock up. Its shares closed up $3.08, or 4.4 percent, to $73.33 on the New York Stock Exchange. Earlier in the session, it set a new 52-week high of $74.53. GM’s shares slipped 10 cents to $36.34, after rising earlier to $36.83. Spokesmen for both GM and Chrysler said they would not comment because so many rumors have surfaced since Wednesday, when DaimlerChrysler Chairman Dieter Zetsche said the automaker would not rule out possible sale of its U.S. operations, which it acquired in 1998. The DaimlerChrysler chairman, who formerly led Chrysler Group, said the German company is considering all options for its U.S. operation, including strategic partners. “It’s the rumor of the day, or the week,” Chrysler Group spokesman Mike Aberlich said of the GM report. “It’s just speculation and we’re not going to comment on speculation.” But neither company would deny that talks were taking place, either. “We’ve said on many occasions that conversations throughout the auto industry happen all the time,” said GM spokesman Tony Cervone. “And those conversations very often lead to nothing.” Several analysts said that neither company would gain much if GM acquired Chrysler. “It doesn’t make any sense to me at the corporate level,” said Burnham Securities analyst David Healy. “They have competitive vehicles with dealers across the street at every level from subcompact car at least to full-size pickup truck.” Healy and others said it’s more likely the two companies would join to develop technologies or hardware such as a clean diesel engine built at a single plant. “I think there’s some fire with all that smoke,” he said. “With the Chrysler Group losing money and looking for alternatives to save development costs, joint ventures, technology sharing with GM and some of the other auto companies might make a lot of sense.” The Wall Street Journal and The New York Times on Friday both quoted sources as saying that Chrysler and GM have discussed a possible alliance related to large sport utility vehicles. DaimlerChrysler already has intertwined its Mercedes operation with Chrysler to the point where it would be difficult for the companies to separate, said Kevin Reale, an AMR Research Inc. automotive analyst. “If you stand back and look at the monies and whatnot that DaimlerChrysler is investing in Chrysler overall, and the level of reuse in architecture and parts you’re seeing, I find it very difficult for it to be more than just a rumor right now,” Reale said. David Cole, chairman of the Center for Automotive Research in Ann Arbor, said he, too, didn’t think the acquisition would take place. But he said the major issue of pension and health care liabilities for unionized retirees could be addressed if the companies combined. GM and Chrysler could reach a settlement with the United Auto Workers union similar to what Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. reached with the United Steelworkers union. Goodyear got rid of its liabilities by paying $1 billion into a union-run trust fund. “If you fold their legacy costs together,” Cole said, “you might be able to save enough on your long-term contingent liabilities on health care and pensions to pay for the whole thing.” GM has said its potential retiree health care liability is $50 billion. Stephen B. Cheetham, senior research analyst for European autos at Sanford C. Bernstein Ltd. in London, estimated those liabilities for Chrysler at $21 billion. Chrysler on Wednesday announced a 2006 operating loss of $1.475 billion and said it expects to show losses through 2007. The company also said it would eliminate 13,000 positions – including 11,000 production jobs and 2,000 white-collar posts – over the next three years as it seeks to cut costs and return to profitability in 2008. GM, on the other hand, has said it will turn a profit for the fourth quarter of last year, although its earnings report has been delayed by accounting troubles. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Local MP voices concerns over RCMP firearms program decision on 10/22 magazine

first_img“that cartridge magazines that are originally designed or manufactured for use in a firearm that is chambered for, or designed for use, rimfire cartridges are not included in these magazine restrictions.”At the end of his letter, Zimmer asks them to reverse their decision, saying that it has caused fear and uncertainty.“I urge you to reverse this unfortunate decision which has done nothing to promote public safety, and has only created fear and uncertainty within the law-abiding firearms community.” FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – MP Bob Zimmer has voiced concerns after a ruling by the RCMP’s Canadian Firearms Program which made the Ruger 10/22 magazine prohibited.In a press release, Zimmer says that many people have reached out to him after word got out that a memo had been sent to police agencies about the Ruger 10/22 magazine classification.Zimmer then wrote a letter to RCMP Commissioner Bob Paulson.

‘Leaked’ Man United line-up v Arsenal: Fellaini to partner Rooney in attack?

first_imgManchester United’s FA Cup quarter-final clash against Arsenal has all the potential to be a seismic moment in the respective seasons of these former heavyweights of English football and you can get it LIVE on talkSPORT from 7pm.For United, FA Cup success will represent progression for the fallen giants, as boss Louis van Gaal tries to lead them back to the top of the game, but standing in their way are an old foe.The Red Devils are currently on a strong run of form that has seen them lose just two of their last 22 matches in all competitions – including the 2-1 victory over Arsenal earlier this season – and they will need to call on that resilience on Monday evening.Personnel-wise, Van Gaal has a largely available squad at his disposal, with only Jonny Evans – who starts his six-match ban for spitting – and Robin van Persie noticeable absentees.Michael Carrick is in line to start having made his return to first team action with a late cameo in the 1-0 victory over Newcastle last time out.There are rumours emanating from Manchester that Van Gaal may have a trick up his sleeve in terms of selection, as this ‘leaked’ line-up below shows… 1 Manchester United duo Wayne Rooney and Marouane Fellaini 1 GoalkeeperDavid De Gea’s continued heroics make him virtually undroppable, so expect him to start.DefenceThere are question marks over Luke Shaw’s fitness, but with the additional days’ rest, the England man should get the nod at full-back, with Antonio Valencia on the opposite flank. Evans’ ban means that Chris Smalling will likely partner Marcos Rojo in the middle.MidfieldThe return of Carrick will provide Van Gaal with a tough choice in the middle, but it seems possible that he will go for two ball-playing players with Daley Blind playing alongside the England international. Ashley Young’s late winner certainly warrants a start, while Angel Di Maria’s ability means he will almost certainly start.AttackThe big surprise looks likely to come up top, with rumours circulating that Marouane Fellaini will be deployed as a striker alongside Wayne Rooney.Man United fans, how do you think you’ll line-up?
