If I say it here it is because I also told the boys inside. We give away the first part in a childlike way. It does not seem that we fight for the descent. (… ) When a team gives 45 minutes in First division, most likely you will lose. A team that plays to follow in First cannot give away, no longer 45 minutes … but only two minutes.

LaLiga Santander* Data updated as of February 10, 2020 The worst in the epiloguesYes, lately the Leganés suffers in the beginning, but it turns out that its true pending subject is the one that points to the final stretch of the matches. To the epilogues. Until the dispute of this last day, the Blue and Whites were the team that has lost the most points in the last 30 minutes of their matches: Eight points stopped winning due to so many rivals from 60 to 90 minutes.Statistics are provided by the specialized site @StatsPrimera, which points out that, in a fictitious classification of matches at 60 minutes, Leganés would be 11th with 26 points. A guarismo that would grow if the matches were only played until the break. If so, Leganés would be 10th with 28 points. It is there, after the resumption, when most suffered a Leganés who has seen how he conceded 20 goals in the second parts of their matches for only eight scored.The mixture of both factors (lazy beginnings, bad endings) explains to some extent the irregularity of a Leganés who, when competing, generates expectations that dissolve at the ends of his matches. It is difficult for pickers to start and finish their matches. Enjoying a competitive routine for 90 minutes is another of the pending tasks from here to the end of the course.center_img The Leganés lost last Saturday to Levente fruit of two too early gorings.

first_imgLow Perea and Malbasic. “It makes me rethink the 4-2-3-1 system when I don’t see the team well to make any changes. The losses can be solved with other players. We have to be strong, neither skilled, nor precious, nor exceptional from there. everything else comes out. I’m going to work on that, that the team is strong, that on the contrary it costs him to reach the goal or handle the ball. “Jury. “He could be a starter, it is something to value, there are still two days left for the game and we will think about it. The other day he left on the left, but the game was very stuck and we put it inside, but he in this team where he can best perform it is on the left. When it has been available we have always used it, but it had two injuries in two moments that came out and has never caught pace. Now it seems that training has a good rhythm, the quality has it. “ Short week. “I would have liked a week longer because after a defeat you have things to improve and correct. After the other day we have things to talk about. You have fewer days and hardly any recovery time with the trip as well.”Sporting “The change of coach at the beginning did not have the effect they expected, but now the team is different. He plays very well with the ball, he has quite clear ideas of what they do with him and they have a very good result that they achieved in Santander the other day. Sporting, good or bad, in Molinón is dangerous, but now they are well. “Plan to stop the rival. “The plan is that they do not play comfortable, keep them away from our goal and take advantage of our moments that when we do that always appear.”Cádiz is stuck. “There comes a time of the season in which teams that have left more points on the road go more to the concrete, which is what we did at the beginning of the season and we are very well known, they know what our strengths are and We are played by taking advantage of that and we are made to change the way we play a team that does not have several records with the same chances of winning. We have a way of playing that gives us many possibilities and we are very safe and in others not so much When the team runs more with the ball it is a team that does not win and when it runs more without the ball it is a team that normally wins. That is what the teams know. Apart from that, we have to be an intense team. “Intensity. “For me, intensity means the number of stolen balls, which you lose to the opponent. Plays that are not seen in a match but that we handle because we have lived them and we have them. Sometimes the intensity is given by the game of the opponent , Zaragoza handled the ball a lot, there you can put the intensity into practice. “ Template state. “We have been with the entire squad for a while, with some players touched but who can train. That’s good, it is a handicap when making a list because many players stay at home and others without playing, but it is good to have it to choose “.System change “Since the arrival of Malbasic and Álvaro Giménez we have always had in mind that we have to try and be able to play like that. We did it in Las Palmas and we won, we did it the other day against Málaga and we didn’t win. The team suffers. at the time of not having the ball but we are supposed to have more stuck. For the moment we are not getting it, but that is not why we will stop trying. “Competition considers Mesa yellow fairIndignation in the cadism by the decision of the Competition Committee. The resolution gives the reason to Pulido Santana and does not rectify the yellow card that Nano Mesa saw in the match of day 28 against Málaga. The Yellow Submarine yesterday presented allegations, now dismissed, to try to free the Tenerife striker from the warning that the referee deemed necessary to pretend foul within the area and that the club considers unfair.The referee stated in the minutes that the reason for the yellow card was “to pretend to have been infringed” in an action between Diego González and Nano Mesa. Pulido Santana did not appreciate the fault and his assistant in the VAR, Ávalos Barrera, did not consider it necessary to review the images. This decision generated a controversy that has given much to talk in recent days after viralizing the images of the play through social networks.Now, the Competition Committee, after reviewing the images, considers that the decision of the collegiate was correct, and collects “the images provided undoubtedly prove the version of the facts that the club maintains: that the Málaga defender contacts his right foot with the player finally admonished causing his demolition. Therefore, this Competition Committee cannot substitute for the referee’s assessment, concluding that there has been a manifest material error. ”The yellow card is not a penalty for being the second of the striker, who once again stepped on the green after spending two days recovering from a sprained ankle he suffered in the match against Racing.Those who will miss the next game against Sporting when serving the federal penalty for seeing the fifth yellow last day are Filip Malbasic and Alberto Perea.

first_img“I know Cholo likes it. He would fit in Atlético”“Alexis is still a top player“he stated in Cooperative Radio the triple league champion with Universidad de Chile and today player representative, Leo Rodríguez. “The problem is that it lacks continuity, at Inter you play with another system. At this time, you have to go to a club where the coach wants it and the system benefits him, “he continued. And he entered the name of the Cholo.” I know he likes it. And in a team from the Atlético line, he could play and have continuity, “he concluded. The future of Alexis Sánchez (31 years old) is in the air. Inter Milan have already announced that they will not exercise the purchase option on their loan. An ankle injury has kept him from continuity. He will return to Manchester United, a club in which he has not convinced yet (five goals in 45 games), much as now Solskjaer come to his defense: “It will show that you were all wrong.” But the reality is different. Two years after he paid 29.2 million euros for his transfer, he is looking for a destination. One of the options that sounds is Qatar, according to The Telegraph. Another could be Atlético. That at least points from his country, Chile.Cholo has always chewed his name, he has always followed him closely, he has always loved him on his team. Regardless of what the numbers say (a goal in 13 games at Inter, for example), Cholo knows. And he knows why experience tells him: no coach was able to get as much performance out of him as Simeone himself, in River, 2007-2008 season. “Alexis Sánchez is an extraordinary player, what more could I say about him. I love him a lot, because I had him when he was just a boy,” the Argentine coach defended in 2018. Now, in the midst of the global pandemic caused by Covid- 19, with Atlético drowned economically and a summer with ‘low cost’ signings, The name of the Chilean appears again linked to the future of Simeone. It is good, experienced and cheap. Interest is a repeat offender. last_img read more

first_imgWhen Ricky Chin resigned as president of Waterhouse Football Club last season, it was certain that the next man to step into his boots would have a mountainous task returning the club to the peak of it powers.After a comprehensive search, Jamaica Public Service (JPS) board member and a director for energy in the Ministry of Science, Technology, Energy and Mining, Fitzroy Vidal, was handed the mantle to move the club forward.”Waterhouse Football Club is one of the biggest football clubs in the country. I was asked to assume this role of taking charge of the club as president and I consented and the management asked me to implement the necessary changes that I saw fit and rebuild the club to its former glory and even exceed it,” he stated.Vidal said the club’s hierarchy contended that the club was not being managed properly, and that it was plagued with problems of inadequate structures and financial challenges such as a high electricity bill and was overburdened by a Caribbean Football Union (CFU) fine.OPERATINGAS ABUSINESS”The administrative area needs changes and we have had personnel changes. But it’s work in progress. We have more to do and we want the right people, but we are determined to take it (club) to the professional level, as we want to run it as a business.”He added: “We are facing mountains of debts which we are committed to paying off and at the same time to run the club as a professional unit is extremely difficult. But I undertook the task to transform the club into a business operation and put it back to its rightful position. But the financial management is of high priority and we are putting structures in place.”Our sponsors are big stakeholders. We saw National Continental Bakery stepping forward and giving us additional money to support us and it is extremely important because it takes money to run a football and this is sending a big signal and we are grateful for it.”They (sponsors) have been with us through the good and bad times, the highs and lows and corporate Jamaica know what football can do for this community with financial support on a larger scale,” Vidal reasoned.However, uncharacteristic poor results on the field this season have been a major cause for concern, sparking fears of relegation in a community which lives, eats and breathes Waterhouse Football Club.”The community is very important to this football club, the fan base is very strong and very supportive. The club was hungry for change and it has been difficult, but very strategic. We made some changes at the technical level and after I got the technical team I wanted, I then moved my focus to the administrative aspect and we have seen improvements, although not as much as we would have wanted, particularly because we have been paying our debts to creditors,” he noted.”My vision is to make Waterhouse Football Club a football giant, winning leagues, developing youngsters into professional footballers and helping them ply their trade on the international scene and leverage the Waterhouse FC brand for the sustainable benefit of all stakeholders.”I am proud to be identified with this club because everywhere I go people want to be associated with them,” said Vidal.last_img read more

first_imgFormer national under-17 captain Omar Holness has revealed that three things have him excited about playing Major League Soccer (MLS) in the coming season. The 21-year-old Jamaican, the overall number-five pick, was selected by Real Salt Lake in Thursday’s Major League Soccer’s Super Draft following an impressive three-year career playing central midfield for the University of North Carolina Tar Heels scoring four goals and registering 11 assists.Now that he is a professional, he gets to work with two Jamaican legends, possibly play against his childhood hero and believes he can help his club win a championship.At Real Salt Lake he will be working with Andy Williams and Tyrone Marshall, former Jamaican players, now coaches employed by the club but on the day he said he didn’t know who would select him or what to expect.”All of the draftees were nervous because in reality we had no idea, no clue where we were going to end up but when I heard my name being called at number five for Salt Lake I was excited and surprised but when I heard I was going to join Andy and Tyrone and Demar (Phillips) up at Real Salt Lake, I was like it couldn’t get better than that,” he said describing the fact that the presence of the Jamaicans is for him a huge boost.”I believe having coaches Andy Williams and Tyrone Marshall will be a very positive thing for me. I say so because having Jamaicans around you will help me settle in and give me tips that will help push me in the right direction.”much sweeterHolness said playing professional football has always been his dream but this experience is going to be so much sweeter as he could possibly face his childhood hero, who now plays the MLS for the LA Galaxy.”Playing football professionally has been a dream of mine ever since I was a little boy. To finally realise that it is actually coming true is very exciting. I think what I am looking forward to most is making this transition and playing against my childhood hero, Steven Gerard.”Gerard, a Liverpool icon in the Barclays Premier League currently plays for the LA Galaxy.Holness realises that he has his work cut out for him. He is expected to come in and strengthen RSL’s midfield contingent and hopefully help push the club to a title in the coming seasons. Following Thursday’s draft Real Salt Lake’s general manager Craig Waibe told media that the Jamaican was exactly who the club wanted. However, he was quick to point out that the Jamaican would not be pressured from the outset and would be given time to adapt.last_img read more
