Rubi: “Real Madrid can be hurt”

first_imgBetis coach Joan Francesc Ferrer, Rubi, reviewed the previous game that his team plays against Real Madrid: “There are two or three teams in this League that are harder to beat than the rest. Before Madrid we have to make it almost perfect to win, but it doesn’t scare us. We were able to win against Atlético and Barcelona. “Ultimatum? “That question this year is very common, unfortunately because we are not where we should be. But I do not worry, I work to be close to victory. Then whether we win or not depends on other things.” Madrid more vulnerable. “I have the impression that you can hurt him, like everyone else. But his numbers in conceded goals are very low and the defensive facet is taking it well. You don’t end up hurting him and his goalkeeper is in great shape. We will try to take advantage of his weaknesses but it will be key that we put the chances that we have, that we are going to have for sure. Madrid, Barcelona or Atlético are very powerful, but we cannot focus on these matches from the excess of respect. We have to do things very well to win, but we can to get it”.Sensations. “It has been another hard week but I do not notice discouragement in our players. We are going to face and play a game more than worthy. It hurts that deserving more in other games we have no reward. We must insist and work harder if possible.” Problem of the coach? “I understand that no, but what am I going to say. These last matches we have been close to winning them all, for me it is very different now at the beginning of the campaign. I do not see a team that has fallen or does not make chances. This season we have started it crooked , in the first third there were many concepts that the team did not assimilate, that cost us a deficit.Then we have set up many good games with some not so good, but within a normality.What will happen? I will fight to be the top possible and go over 50 points minimum. We don’t have that fortune point to help us. The only ones who don’t put Betis in their position are the players and the coaching staff. We are working hard to change it. “Defensive bleeding. “We continuously analyze everything that happens to us. In Valencia we conceded two goals, the second I blame, because we risk the most, it is a matter of going up to an open grave. But in Mestalla we suffer very little. Against Mallorca more, but the effectiveness of the rival was one hundred percent. Of course I look for things to try not to score those goals, but our goalkeeper does not make eight stops at the beginning of the League. “Bad run of Borja Iglesias. “Every week we think about the striker. Loren had an incredible level, then the level was more even and both have been playing.”Feddal. “Zou wants to stay and I understand that the campaign will end with us, he wants to help. We have four extraordinary centers.”Warning for the derby. “We have not looked at it that any day, nor will we do it in this match. Channels can play with four cards, it has many duels as well. But if there is any need to be done, he will have to sacrifice the derby for the sake of this match against Real Madrid”.Setién and its possible return. “What hurt me was that at the beginning of the project I could not have the room to maneuver, but at the moment when Rubi is not a coach I will have to respect the one who comes. out of here”.last_img read more

Tigertown: Morris, Trammell elected to baseball Hall of Fame

first_imgDon’t miss out on the latest news and information. Morris also pitched for World Series winners in Detroit — with Trammell, in 1984 — and Toronto in 1992. His 3.90 career ERA tops Red Ruffing’s 3.80 as the highest of any pitcher in the Hall.“For years my earned run average has been an issue for a lot of people that thought it was not good enough for Hall of Fame honors, but I never once thought about pitching for an ERA. I always thought about completing games, starting games, eating up innings and trying to win games more importantly than anything else,” he said. “Today’s generation is different. In my heart of hearts I don’t think for a second that guys that are pitching, the elite guys especially that are pitching in the game today, could not do what we did. I know they could. But they haven’t been conditioned to it, both physically and mentally.”His 175 complete games included 20 in 1983. The entire big league total this year was 59, and no pitcher had more than five. He said sabermetrics should not be used to evaluate his era.“Now I’m getting analyzed by a bunch of numbers and things that didn’t exist when I played, he said. “Had they existed maybe I would have had a better understanding of what it would have meant to not pitch through pain, to not go deeper into games on nights that I told my manager, ‘I’m fine’ when I wasn’t. But I don’t regret doing that, because if you go to the wall and never try to push down the wall, you’ll never know if you can.”Now 59, Trammell was a steady presence in the middle of the diamond while playing all 20 of his seasons in Detroit, 19 of them next to double-play partner Lou Whitaker.Trammell was the 1984 World Series MVP, hitting .450 as the Tigers trounced San Diego in five games and finished off a season in which they started out 35-5.A six-time All-Star and four-time Gold Glover, Trammell scored 1,231 runs and drove in 1,003. He batted .285 with 185 home runs and a .352 on-base average — he walked 850 times and struck out 874.Trammell never came close to election during his 15 tries in Hall voting by Baseball Writers’ Association of America members, peaking at 40.9 percent in 2016. Starting at 22 percent in his first Hall ballot appearance in 2000, Morris reached at high of 67.7 percent in 2003, his next to last appearance.Trammell’s next visit to the Hall will certainly last longer than his first trip to the shrine in upstate New York. That was in 1995, when the Tigers played the Cubs in the Hall of Fame exhibition game.Wearing his No. 3 jersey, Trammell jogged the couple blocks and hurried through the Hall in 30 minutes while the teams were limbering up at Doubleday Field. “I came to realization that it might not happen, and I was OK with that. I really was,” he said. “If people thought it was a tad short, I could live with that.”Former catcher Ted Simmons fell one vote shy, and former players’ union head Marvin Miller was five short of the 12 needed.“It’s not a big surprise,” Miller’s son, Peter, said from Japan. “I think my father’s place in history is understood by all baseball players, all baseball fans and the general public.”Morris had 254 wins and seven more in the postseason, including his 10-inning shutout in a 1-0 win for Minnesota over Atlanta in Game 7 of the 1991 World Series.“No question it was my defining moment in baseball,” Morris said. “I never thought I was in trouble and I knew I could get out of it if I was. So I had the best mindset I’ve ever had in my entire on that night.”ADVERTISEMENT It’s too early to present Duterte’s ‘legacy’ – Lacson “I definitely want to come back some day,” he said that afternoon, “but I probably wouldn’t go through it in my uniform.”Steve Garvey, Tommy John, Don Mattingly, Dale Murphy, Dave Parker and Luis Tiant also were on the ballot.Miller, who headed the players’ union from 1966-82 was on the ballot for the seventh time. Miller sent a letter to the BBWAA in 2008, four years before he died, saying he didn’t want to be considered anymore.The BBWAA annual vote on players will be announced Jan. 24. Chipper Jones, Jim Thome and Omar Vizquel are among 19 first-time candidates, and Trevor Hoffman, Vladimir Guerrero, Edgar Martinez, Roger Clemens and Barry Bonds are among the holdovers.Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Phivolcs records 2 ‘discrete weak ash explosions’ at Taal Volcano Coco’s house rules on ‘Probinsyano’ set AMA to select 1st in 2017 PBA D-League Draft The big-game pitcher and star shortstop were picked by 16 voters who considered 10 candidates whose biggest contributions came from 1970-87.

first_imgThis season Conte used the Italian phrase “demenza senile” in relation to the United manager, which translates as senile dementia with Mourinho responding by alluding to Conte’s match-fixing suspension at his former club Siena, which he was later acquitted of.But the United boss claims the pair are now at peace and fans should not expect wounds to be re-opened at Wembley on Saturday.Asked about his relationship with Conte, Mourinho told Portuguese newspaper Record: “It’s okay. It’s okay. He stretched out [to shake hands], I stretched out. We got bored.“After the game in Manchester, I invited him to come to my office. We talked. Nothing’s wrong.”Mourinho also revealed he plans to replace departing assistant manager Rui Faria with a new coach whom he has worked with before.He said: “It’s a person coming who worked with me before but I can’t say the name because he’s still linked to another club.“Good coaches there are many, but I like to make my assistants.

GORMAN SCORES HIS FIRST SENIOR GOAL FOR STEVENAGE

first_imgGorman in action for Letterkenny Rovers before he departed for Stevenage Borough last summer.Dale Gorman scored his first goal for the Stevenage first-team against St.Albans on Monday night and in doing so capped a remarkable week for the young Letterkenny man.Last week Gorman was at the centre of a storm, he was kicked in the head by a Mexican player during an international fixture at The Milk Cup between Northern Ireland and Mexico.The clip received national attention, and IFA authorities came down hard on both sides for the mass brawl that brought unwanted negative attention to the popular competition. Gorman wasn’t badly injured despite the vicious kick, and the tough midfielder played in the rest of the competition for Northern Ireland.He’s progressing well at Stevenage and this was evidenced further on Tuesday night when he scored a cracking goal against St.Albans in a pre-season friendly fixture.Gorman will be hoping he can break into the first-team on a regular basis during the forthcoming season ahead.They say a week is a long time in football and in the case of Dale Gorman, it’s a very true statement.   GORMAN SCORES HIS FIRST SENIOR GOAL FOR STEVENAGE was last modified: August 6th, 2014 by Mark ForkerShare 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:Dale GormanNBewsNOrthern IrelandSportStevenage Boroughlast_img read more

Sheephaven sub-aqua diver not put off by stormy sea conditions

first_imgSHEEPHAVEN SUB AQUA CLUB NOTES:When the weather stops diving Sheephaven divers can do either of two things, go abroad for warmer waters or go snorkelling and last week there are reports of both.First up over the last few Sundays there has been a dedicated turnout of Sheephaven snorkelers at PortnaBlagh, in some cases braving very poor sea conditions indeed. Last Sunday was also quite poor, both in and out of the water, with air temperatures near zero and a real nip to the water temperatures.However for the snorkelers involved it was great to be in the water and getting the very best of what Donegal waters have to offer as winter begins to beckon.One Sheephaven diver has just returned from much warmer temperatures is club Chairman John Joe Rowland, when he travelled to New Zealand to meet his engineer son John and took the opportunity to get a few dives in while there.John Joe carried out dives in both New Zealand’s north and south islands, starting with an exceptional wreck dive on the 170 metre, 20,000 tonne MS Mikhail Lermontov, a Russian cruise liner sunk in 1986. How she struck rocks of Port Gore, Marlbourough Sounds, New Zealand has a familiar enough story, when the local pilot leaving Picton with a mainly Australian complement of passengers took a short cut and ended up with a fatal gash 5.5 metres below the waterline on its port side.Happily all 743 on board got off safely and by all accounts just in time, as she sank below the waves 20 minutes after the last person on board was rescued.Today she lies on her starboard side in depths between 14 and 38 metres and while popular with divers involves a 2.5 hour car journey to the dive site.John Joes’ visit was guided on site in conjunction with Nelson SAC and Brent Mc Fadden of Go Diving Dive Centre, where they conducted four dives in good water conditions of temperatures of over 14 degrees Celsius and visibility of greater than 10 metres horizontally.As ever the Donegal connection is never far away, with Brent Mc Fadden’s ancestors immigrating to New Zealand in 1862. Brent is looking forward to tracing his Irish roots in the near future. John Joe’s second New Zealand diving experience was at the Poor Knights reef in North New Zealand, which has a mixture of sub-tropical reefs and caves.It was reported to have been considered as the 7th best dive location by none other than diving legend Jacques Cousteau.The islands involved that make up this location originated from an eroded 4 million year old volcano. They have been uninhabited since the 1820 and today are a sub-tropical marine nature reserve, with a no-take zone that encourages species like the great Rays to flourish.Due to its sub-tropical climate water temperature was a very comfortable 14 degrees Celsius, while in-water visibility was reported as excellent. While it will be some time until Donegal water temperature returns to similar levels, in the meantime we will enjoy what we have – any chance we get.Sheephaven sub-aqua diver not put off by stormy sea conditions was last modified: November 22nd, 2016 by Mark ForkerShare 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:ConditionsDivingseaSheephaven Sub-AquaSportlast_img read more
