Aguirre clings to the message of meritocracy in the Leganés

first_imgJavier Aguirre is 60 years old and has a vast experience as a coach in Spain. Already become the foreign coach with more matches in LaLiga (365) the pulse does not tremble when making decisions. Be of the draft. In the last weeks in Leganés, the Mexican coach has already taken a few based on the scale of meritrocacia. And the ones that will come. A warning message that already became palpable in the alignment. For the first time without more commitments ahead of the League, that is, without any obligation to rotate due to the presence of the Cup, the coach used an eleven against the Txuri-Urdin in which two regulars fell. Óscar Rodríguez and Rubén Pérez did not play at the start. Recio and Eraso were his substitutes.“Leaving substitute is not easy”In the case of the first, Oscar, entered in the 80th minute to become, in 94 ’, hero of the day. His foul goal did not cover his bitter feeling for being on the bench.“I have entered with great desire. Leaving substitute is not easy. I have tried to do my best and, in the end, I have helped with a goal. I have done well the time I have played. Sometimes it is up to some, and sometimes to others. You have to make it difficult for the coach. The competition? Noticeable. That is good. It is very good to give the best of each one, “confessed that of Los Navalmorales after the victory. His absence against Real could be explained by rotations (he started at the Camp Nou and played everything in the Cup) and also by the good role played by Recio and Roque Mesa in the double pivot against Atlético de Madrid. In his case, the arrival of Amadou will involve injecting competition into a position for which Aguirre did not have the former Rivera pickle. It was not the first time that, in the last days, he stayed out of eleven. Already against Atlético de Madrid he stayed in the bank and only played ten minutes despite the fact that, against Ebro, in the Cup, he only competed 31 minutes. Its last ownership occurred in the derby (0-3) against Getafe. In that duel he was replaced as in thirteen others. With fourteen relays, Oscar is the most substituted First Division player. Despite this, it has only stopped playing a game in what we have been on course.More competition, more difficult to playIn the case of Rubén Pérez there was the paradox of being the first meeting in which the Andalusian was summoned, but did not play at the start. Moreover, in the course we have played, he has played all the games he has competed from start to finish, except for the duel against Granada, in which he left injured. That ailment forced him to stop until his reappearance against Barça, in the second game of Aguirre on the bench.center_img With a template removed (eleven changes, four new faces, 24 players in total) a new stage is coming in which the gallons, says the Basque, will be won on a daily basis, whatever the name of the affected person for good (play) or for bad (not play). “I’m happy. New guys generate internal competition for us. That makes the boys who were already more animated. Everyone has to shake“commented the Mexican after winning the Real last Sunday. The Spaniard (now in Girona), with Arnáiz (now in Osasuna), are two other examples of the new Aguirre policy. In his opinion, neither were able to compete in the last matches. Therefore, despite the absence of players in the squad, despite the shortage of the winter market, the coach left them out of the last games and even preferred to throw before the quarry. Now, with four new members on the roster, playing at Leganés will be more expensive than everlast_img read more

Awaken The Giant Tour coming to Paddle For The Peace

first_img“Accordingly, KAIROS is calling for construction on Site C dam to be suspended; that no more permits be issued for Site C dam until the Indigenous peoples, whose lands and ways of life will be affected, are able to exercise their right to free, prior and informed consent, in keeping with the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples. KAIROS is also calling for a thorough, arms-length review by the BC Utilities Commission.”Rolling Justice Bus spokesperson Janet Gray says this bus ride is extremely important, and also explains the meaning behind why it is called the “Awaken The Giant” Tour.“We’re calling this journey to the Peace River the Awaken the Giant tour because we think that the people of BC haven’t been paying attention to what’s been happening in the northern part of our province over the past decade or so. The rapid industrialization of the north- fracking, LNG projects, pipelines, Site C dam construction- all of these initiatives represent a way of thinking about development and resources that disconnect us from the earth and from each other. Aboriginal and non-aboriginal communities are being divided by what government and industry are doing and the rest of BC remains silent. We think this must change. This is not just a local issue. If Site C proceeds, the financial burden it will place on BC Hydro will be shared by everyone. The people of BC are like a sleeping giant. Once awakened- once more of us better appreciate what’s happening in the north and the consequences for the entire province- the giant will rise up and use its strength and clear vision to build a new kind of economy for BC.” FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – A group of 45 members will travel from Vancouver to make the trek up north to participate in the Paddle For The Peace.The group is called “The rolling justice bus”. The group with people from Vancouver Island and the lower Mainland will leave Vancouver on Thursday, July 7th and travel by bus to Fort St. John.The group says they are proud to participate in the event.“The Rolling Justice Bus community is proud to be supporting this celebration of the beautiful Peace Valley and the mighty river that sustains it.”- Advertisement -The RJB is also a part of another group called KAIROS. Also known as Canadian Ecumenical Justice Initiatives.It is “a organization concerned that construction of the Site C dam will violate Indigenous peoples’ rights and exacerbate ecological damage caused by previous dams.”KIROS is calling on the Site C project to be halted and no more permits be issued.Advertisementlast_img read more

Talk is cheap as Arsenal’s Wenger eyes more misery for Everton

first_imgBut Wenger, speaking ahead of the Gunners’ visit to Everton on Sunday, effectively pointed to his players’ medals as proof of their quality and character.“The only response we have to give is on the pitch and not listen too much to what people say,” he said.“If you look at these players and what they have achieved in their careers, I think that speaks much more than any sentence at a post-match press conference.“When you’re questioned, in our job there is only one response and that is on the pitch.”The Frenchman was just as dismissive of reports that Germany midfield player Mezut Ozil wants to join Manchester United in January.“We have to deal with all kinds of speculation when the players are at the end of their contracts,” he said.“On the other hand, to be professional is to give 100 per cent as long as you are somewhere. For the rest, we came out many times and said that’s the situation.“The media can come out tomorrow and say that he extends his contract here. It will be exactly the same, it will not change anything. When you play the next game, commit 100 per cent.”Neither issue, he insisted, would affect his plans for the visit to Goodison Park, when Arsenal can pile extra pressure on under-fire Everton manager Ronald Koeman.“I believe that at the moment I just focus on what is the best possible team for the next game and have no pre-conceived ideas if the guy will be 100 per cent committed or not,” Wenger said.Alexis Sanchez and Aaron Ramsey are expected to return to the Arsenal starting eleven, and Laurent Koscielny is fit to play after cramp forced him off towards the end of the Watford match.Koeman, meanwhile, has complete faith that the players he signed in the transfer window will get his side’s season back on track.The Dutchman made a sizeable outlay to bring in Jordan Pickford, Michael Keane, Wayne Rooney, Gylfi Sigurdsson, Davy Klaassen and Sandro Ramirez but Everton find themselves languishing in 16th place in the Premier League.“I still believe in the players, and I still believe in the signings that we made in the summer,” Koeman said.“Maybe some people can have doubts about some of them at the moment but the future will tell everybody that the signings we made were really good ones.“We need to take the situation for what it is now and prepare our team for Sunday.“Of course, we have discussions internally about the tough start, the fixtures, Europa League football but the position in the table is not where we need to stay and that is what we need to change.”Koeman will decide whether to recall Phil Jagielka, Leighton Baines and Rooney against the Gunners after he rested the trio for Everton’s 2-1 defeat to Lyon in the Europa League on Thursday.James McCarthy is available again having recovered from the knee and hamstring problems which have prevented him from making a first-team appearance this season, while fellow midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin has shaken off a knock picked up against Lyon.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Arsenal’s coach Arsene Wenger says his players record proves they cannot be bullied © AFP / ANDREJ ISAKOVICLONDON, United Kingdom, Oct 21 – Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has dismissed suggestions from Watford striker Troy Deeney that his players can be bullied and show little stomach for a physical battle.Deeney made the remarks after Arsenal’s 2-1 defeat at Vicarage Road last weekend, when his introduction as a substitute unsettled the Arsenal defence and turned the game in Watford’s favour.last_img read more

Massimo Cellino considering future as Leeds United owner – ‘It’s been a nightmare’

first_imgLeeds owner Massimo Cellino has admitted he is considering his future at the club, admitting his spell in charge at Elland Road has been “a nightmare”.The 59-year-old Italian lodged his appeal against a second Football League ban in 12 months on Wednesday, having failed its owners’ and directors’ test last week following another tax conviction in Italy.Steve Evans recently became the club’s sixth head coach since Cellino took control of the club in April 2014, but he has yet to win in three games and Leeds are without a home victory in nearly eight months after Thursday night’s 2-0 defeat to Blackburn.“I’m losing my balls,” Cellino told The Times, who have reported rumours of renewed interest in the club from Red Bull.“Ten years ago, I had more balls, but since I came here it’s been a nightmare.“Now I have a low quality of life. I feel shame when I walk to the shop to buy cigarettes if we lose a game.“I convinced my family to come here and they have run away.“It’s like being at a party where you’re not welcome. It’s killing me. Every night I lie awake, asking myself, ‘Am I good enough?’.”If Cellino loses his appeal he will be banned from office until June next year. His previous disqualification in relation to a tax conviction in Italy ran from January to May.On his latest conviction, for failing to pay VAT on an imported Range Rover, Cellino said: “It never went out of the garage.“I sent it back to America and bought my son a diesel car the day after.“The holding company cannot keep this club without me running it. To save money I do 20 jobs. If they ban me and someone else comes in who does not fight for the club, it is dead.”The former Cagliari owner, who pleads his innocence in relation to an outstanding charge of embezzlement in Italy, added: “I’m not a coward. Life is not just about enjoyment. But I ask myself if it’s better if I leave. Only failing to make the fans happy can hurt me.“You think I can sell a club in five minutes? Who gets hurt in the meantime? Last season someone sent me a lot of bulls***ters.” Leeds owner Massimo Cellino 1last_img read more

Fulham chief Khan has bad news for Man United and Spurs

first_img 2 Ryan Sessegnon is wanted by Manchester United and Tottenham Manchester United want him, so do Tottenham, while Paris Saint-Germain have also been linked, but Ryan Sessegnon is going to remain at Fulham next season.That’s according to the club’s owner Shahid Khan, who saw the 18-year-old help the club reclaim their Premier League status by beating Aston Villa 1-0 in the Championship play-off final.“We don’t want Sessegnon leaving,” he told The Times. “I don’t think he wants to go. He’s going to be at Fulham for the coming year, leading us into the Premier League.”Sessegnon is reportedly valued at £50million and it was he who provided the killer ball for captian Tom Cairney to score at Wembley. 2 This season Sessegnon scored 16 times and created eight in the Championship in addition to becoming the first player outside the top flight to be named on the shortlist for the Professional Footballers’ Association’s Young Player of the Year award in its 44-year history.Khan admits it would have been tricky to keep the teenager had Fulham not won promotion.“Frankly, if we had not been promoted, well, we have a responsibility to our players. He’s been there since he was eight. We want to do the right thing for him and he is Fulham through and through.“He is going to be there next season.”After the win at Wembley, manager Slavisa Jokanovic said: “Many things can happen but I prefer to stay with him and what I know is that the kid wants to stay too. He is really happy in the place where he is.”However, Khan didn’t rule out the idea of a bigger club paying for Sessegnon, with the player remaining at Craven Cottage on loan for the new 2018/19 season.“If a club pays a ridiculous fee he’s not going to be breaking into their starting XI so he will be at Fulham next year; what the terms are I don’t know,” he added.“Nobody knows — we’ve not even stopped celebrating. I can tell you with certainty he’s going to be at Fulham because it’s good for him and good for us. We want him to stay, period.”last_img read more
