Six teams accompany Liverpool as the only undefeated

first_imgThe Maccabi of Tel Aviv is another undefeated. Yesterday he could have lost the condition in his match against Beitar de Jerusalen, but the match ended 0-0. Their numbers: 13 wins and five draws, leave the advantage with Maccabi Haifa in four points. In their ranks two Spaniards play. The former Huesca Jair and the former Athletic Saborit, both fundamental pieces of the Israeli team.Ludogorets (Bulgaria) The steamroller of Europe. 20 wins and a draw in 21 games. The English are leading leaders of the Premier League, they outperform the City by 14 points, second place. The Klopp also have a game less, which could leave the distance at 17. Except hecatombe will win their first Premier Thanks to his defensive strength. They are the least thrashed team in the Premier, with 14 goals. In attack Mané and Salah are distributed almost half of the many. The Spaniards Adrián San Miguel and Chirivella are part of a winning squad.Shakhtar (Ukraine) Intratable in Ukraine. He won the last three leagues champion and is on his way to get the fourth straight. With 16 wins and two draws in 18 games, they beat Dynamo in Kiev by 14 points. In the Champions League they were eliminated in a group with City, Atalanta and Dinamo de Zagreb, but they finished third and will play in the Europa League (against Benfica). Its staff is largely composed of Brazilian players. Moraes is his pichichi with 15 goals in 16 games.Salzburg (Austria) In the month of January, most European leagues begin their second round. At this point of the season, who else who has already lost at least one game of their domestic competition. In the five major leagues only Liverpool has the honor of not having defeated so far this season. If you look at all the European leagues, in addition to the Klopp team, six other teams still don’t know defeat. They are the seven invincible.Liverpool (England) Another of the undefeated teams and that has the very determined League is the Prague Slavia. After 20 days their numbers are 17 wins and three draws; and his advantage with the Viktoria Plzen is 16 points. His domain is overwhelming and where this fact is most appreciated, it is in the goals received. It has fit just four. He is already out of European competition, but he had a whole Barcelona against the ropes both in the first leg and in the second leg, in addition to getting an honorable draw against Inter, in San Siro.Olympiakos (Greece) Slavia Prague (R. Czech) The Ludogorets is the last team of the select group. Bulgarians are reeling in recent games (they have three consecutive draws), but they remain undefeated. Their numbers in 20 games are 14 wins and six draws. In the Europa League his rival will be Inter. In the group stage they faced Espanyol and lost both games, receiving a blushing 6-0 in Barcelona. In the League they have only received eight goals in the 20 games. Olympiakos wants to emulate the milestone achieved by its rival, PAOK, last season. The Thessaloniki team managed to finish the season unbeaten with spectacular numbers: 26 wins and four draws. For its part, the Martins team has 13 wins and five draws in 18 games. In the Europa League, Arsenal will be measured. Miguel Guerrero, former player of Sporting and Leganés among others, is the only Spaniard in his ranks. He has two goals.Maccabi Tel Aviv (Israel) He has had six leagues in a row and although he has almost had no rival, this season the Lask is facing him. The difference between the two is only two points after 18 days. Jesse Marsch’s team has won 13 games and tied five. After his league stop will come the meeting that could leave the League resolved or turn it upside down, both teams will meet at the Red Bull Arena on February 14. And Salzburg will do it without Haaland, who after signing for Dortmund has reduced the attack. Without him, The team’s weight falls on Zambiano Daka, who has 14 goals. In the Europa League they face Eintracht.last_img read more

Ice hockey club has hot run in Div. III tourney

first_img The 15th-seeded Cougars (11-11) gave second-seeded Wright State, which won the title, a battle through two periods before losing 6-1, then upset seventh-seeded Indiana, Pa., 4-3 in a sudden death shootout. They lost their last two games, 12-2 loss to 13th-seeded Central Florida and 8-2 to 14th-seeded Pittsburgh. “We were not expecting to go to the nationals,” said Schrage, who guided COC to a fifth-place ACHA finish three years ago. But there they were – plagued by injuries, lacking depth and tired from a six-hour, red-eye flight to Florida. “At that point,” Schrage said. “We were running on pure adrenaline.” The Cougars, the only junior college and California team in the tournament, went into the third period against Wright State trailing just 3-1. They beat Indiana on freshman forward Todd Stelnick’s goal to win 4-3. Another miracle on ice? Not quite, but College of the Canyons’ ice hockey club team gave it its best shot after sneaking into the American College Hockey Association Div. III National Championship at Fort Myers, Fla. The Cougars advanced to the tournament after Cal State Northridge, Texas and Texas Tech were ousted for using ineligible players, and UC Irvine wasn’t permitted entry because it had a first-year program. “We just kept getting bumped up the list,” coach Jim Schrage said.

My mind is there, but my legs can’t get me there.’ “After that game, it was like, ‘Let’s just go home now.’ ” Said Denes: “All these teams had 20 to 22 skaters and a bunch of guys on the bench waiting to play. “We were skating 10 guys for four days in a row. That’s what killed us. Matter of degrees: COC stayed at the same hotel as Central Florida, and the players met at the pool. “One of the guys had a bandage on his hand over in the spa,” Denes said. “He asked us, ‘Hey, any of you guys pre-med over there?’ ” Denes’ answered, “We don’t even have our AAs yet.” League of their own: COC’s women’s basketball team (20-11) was eliminated by top-seeded Mt.

Freshman guard Leslie Ortiz (Sylmar High), Melissa Tachias (Poly of Sun Valley) and Janette Galindo (Burroughs of Burbank) were first-team all-conference selections, and 12th-year coach Greg Herrick was honored as Coach of the Year for the fifth time.

first_imgA man who threatened Fianna Fail Senator Brian O Domhnaill during a late night bust-up on a mini-bus has been ordered to pay €5,000 to charity.Jimmy Sharkey ordered to pay €5,000 donation.Jimmy Sharkey pleaded guilty to using threatening and abusive behaviour against Senator O Domhnaill. Other charges of actual assault by another man against Senator O Domhnaill have been adjourned after the man also pleaded guilty.Sharkey, a 46 year old father-of-four, who is based in Bayside, New York, admitted being involved in the incident at 4.50am on August 22nd, 2010.Letterkenny Circuit Court heard Sharkey and his co-accused Cathal O’Donovan (44), of New Eltham, London met Mr O Domhnaill outside a chipshop in Gaoth Dobhair.It was alleged that he told the two men they could get a lift in a mini-bus back to where they were staying.However the two men missed their stop and ended up “on a tour of North Gaoth Dobhair.”Senator O DomhnaillThe men were then left back to a local hotel An Chuirt where they got out.However, the men protested and tried to get back on the mini-bus during which Sharkey was alleged to have become engaged in threatening and abusive behaviour towards Mr O Domhnaill with intention to provoke a breach of the peace.O’Donovan also admitted assaulting Mr O Domhnaill.The court heard that Mr O Domhnaill never got off the minibus and Judge Keenan Johnston said it should be noted that he was not in any way responsible for the incident.Barrister Damian Crawford said his client had never been in trouble before and had lived in New York for 20 years.He said the case had caused him serious distress and that his father was currently very ill in hospital.“This was a simple matter that escalated into people being driven around the country in the middle of the night and people were annoyed. Mr Sharkey has never fallen out with anyone and wants to apologise to everyone on the bus,” said barrister Crawford.He asked Judge Johnston not to record a criminal conviction but deal with the matter by way of a donation to charity.Judge Johnston agreed the incident arose out of drink but said Sharkey was a 46 year old who had never been in trouble before.He told Sharkey that if a sum in total of €5,000 was paid to the Friends of Letterkenny Hospital by April 1st, then he would not record a conviction against him.Sharkey later returned to court and paid the €5,000 into court and Judge Johnston discharged the case.MAN THREATENED SENATOR IN MINI-BUS BUST-UP was last modified: January 29th, 2014 by StephenShare 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:assautbreah of peaceCathal O’DonovanGaoth DobhairJimmy SharkeySENATOR BRIAN O DOMHNAILLlast_img read more

Seven summer moves which will help AC Milan rock European football again

first_img 7 Confirmed: Andre Silva – €38m – Thrilling young Portuguese talent wasn’t going to be at Porto before someone snapped him up and it is AC Milan who have made the move this summer. Silva possesses not only a predatory instinct, but an array of skills to lay on assists for team-mates. Able to play in both a two-man, or three-man front-line, the forward, who is already an international star, could be in the reckoning for the Capocannoniere if things go to plan and he settles quickly having managed 16 goals in 32 appearances last time out. It’s been a while since AC Milan have been mentioned among the elite of European football.Four seasons of Serie A finishes outside the top six have seen the Rossoneri drop down the ranks when comparing top clubs, despite winning the Champions League in 2003 and 2007, while also reaching the final in 2005.Stars like Andriy Shevchenko, Kaka, Ronaldinho, and Paolo Maldini, are long gone, but a new group of players is being assembled as they look for a return to the top table of the European game.Following Yonghong Li’s takeover of the club – ending Silvio Berlusconi’s 31-year reign – more funds are being made available to manager Vincenzo Montella, and they haven’t wasted their time in splashing the cash.So, who are the men being tasked with taking AC Milan back to the top?Click the right arrow above to see the player who have already been signed, and those rumoured to be moving to the San Siro this summer… Confirmed: Franck Kessie – Two-year loan with an obligation to buy – Atalanta impressed everyone last season, ending the season in fourth place – but the team from Bergamo have now lost one of their star players. Kessie is powerful box-to-box midfielder, who can cause havoc with driving runs, but is still a little raw. He already possesses the composure and confidence to be a regular penalty taker, but can be a little reckless when it comes to trying to win the ball back from opponents. Rumour: Andrea Conti (Atalanta) – One of AC Milan’s top targets, Conti excelled at right wing-back last season for his current club, scoring eight goals and laying on four for team-mates. Reports suggest the player has agreed a deal with the Rossoneri and now the two clubs must agree a fee. Like Rodriguez on the opposite flank, he will look to excite fans at the San Siro with his gung-ho style. 7 Confirmed: Ricardo Rodriguez – €15m – After being pursued by some of Europe’s top clubs for the last two summers, Swiss star Rodriguez is finally swapping clubs. The former Wolfsburg left-back is fond of getting forward and will no doubt excite the San Siro, while his set-pieces are also of note. An ankle injury curtailed his season but he should be fit and firing for the new campaign, and ready to prove a point. 7 7 7 7 7 Rumour: Emil Forsberg (RB Leipzig) – Europe’s creator-in-chief last season, the Swedish star made 19 assists and scored eight goals from attacking midfield in the Bundesliga. He’s now being targeted by a host of clubs, but AC Milan are at the front of the queue. Asked about a move to the San Siro while on international duty, Forsberg was reluctant to comment but acknowledge he knew plenty about the new ‘project’ taking place at the club. New contract imminent: Gianluigi Donnarumma – The deal that would top all the others is a new contract for teen goalkeeping sensation Donnarumma. Already pencilled in as the heir to Gianluigi Buffon on the international stage, Gigio seems set to sign a huge new deal, after admitting he was looking for a new house in the city, insisting he was ‘attached to Milan’. Confirmed: Mateo Musacchio – €18m – Click the right arrow above to see the players who have already been signed, and those rumoured to be moving to the San Siro this summer… – Almost signed by Tottenham Hotspur two years ago, the Argentine has been a big part of Villarreal’s defence but has also experienced injury issues which have curtailed his playing time. He will be looking to give his all in red and black this coming season and force his way back into the international reckoning ahead of the World Cup. Musacchio isn’t the tallest, but is composed on the ball and confident going into tackles. last_img read more

After Salah blow, another Liverpool star is set for spell out injured

first_imgSadio Mane has broken this left thumb in training with Senegal national team, his injury could get worse if he played. He’s expected to miss the game vs. Sudan and Liverpool’s clash against Huddersfield in the Premier League.— Mootaz Chehade (@MHChehade) October 15, 2018Mane’s injury is the latest blow to Jurgen Klopp, the Liverpool manager, who is already sweating on the fitness of Mohamed Salah, Virgil van Dijk and James Milner ahead of the Premier League’s return.Salah, the Egypt forward, picked up a muscle strain in his country’s 4-0 defeat of eSwatini (formerly Swaziland), while Van Dijk suffered a blow to his ribs as the Netherlands secured a win over Germany.

At that time 20 community leaders/activists participated in the training over several months. Training for Transformation is built on the idea of building a “temporary learning community”, and by doing so, learning the tools of building a sense of community in our own places built on three distinct realities; that everyone feels a sense of being safe and accepted, that everyone feels they are important, significant and has a part to play, that everyone feels a common bond, a sense of solidarity.Training for Transformation is ideal for developing leadership capacity at grassroots level, creating and deepening a sense of community among diverse groups, particularly those with a history of conflict, and developing skills for community building by experience, a process that is inclusive, participative and built around fostering human relationships.Partners, the community education agency working in Ireland for over 25 years and who delivered the programme in Raphoe in 1999 is now keen to return to Raphoe and East Donegal to run the Programme again and are in the process of drafting an application to the Department of Foreign Affairs.

Sister City plan runs into snag

first_imgMONTEBELLO – Montebello’s newest Sister City program has come under fire from an ambassador for the Republic of Azerbaijan. The conflict surfaced after Montebello city officials inaugurated the city of Stepanakert for the program Sept. 25. Stepanakert is a capital city of a disputed region of Azerbaijan. Now, Azerbaijan Ambassador Hafiz Pashayev has written to both Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger and Montebello Mayor Bill Molinari, warning that sensitive peace negotiations with Armenia could be disrupted by Montebello’s move to create a sister-city relationship with Stepanakert. Schwarzenegger’s office re- sponded by telling Pashayev that it was a local issue and referred his concerns to Molinari. Molinari answered Pashayev in writing, saying the city would continue with its Sister City plans. Telephone calls to Pashayev were not returned. Stepanakert is the capital of Nagorno Karabakh, an area that belonged to Armenia before the 1917 Russian Revolution. It was subsequently claimed by neighboring Azerbaijan prior to the formation of the former Soviet Union – a fact that has been a source of tension between Armenia and Azerbaijan ever since. Officials from both countries claim ownership of Nagorno Karabakh, which is located inside official Azerbaijanian borders. Referring to peace talks between officials of Azerbaijan and Armenia, Pashayev wrote, “This move by the City Council comes at a very sensitive time in the negotiations and can easily upset the long-striven-for balance to the degree that can slow down or even disrupt the process.” Pashayev said that when the Soviet Union collapsed in 1989, the United States agreed to recognize established borders of its 15 former republics. But Serge Samoniantz, chairman of the San Gabriel Valley Armenian National Committee and an organizer of the Sister City program in Montebello, said the United States never said Nagorno Karabakh should be returned to Azerbaijan. He said Azerbaijanian leadership failed to fully develop the region during its multidecade control. “Azeri \ discriminated against the Armenians,” Samoniantz said. “They are mostly Muslim, Armenians are Christian. But it was not so much religious as cultural \. “The Azeris didn’t develop the area that was Armenian. They discouraged the use of Armenian language, they shut down their schools, jammed their broadcasts – they `Azerbaijanized’ them. The oppression caused Armenians to move out.” After the dissolution of the Soviet Union, the territorial dispute resurfaced, leading to a three-year war between Armenian and Azerbaijanian forces. A tense cease-fire has been in effect since 1994, with Armenian troops stationed around the region’s borders. The Sister City idea was created in the hopes of sharing resources with Nagorno Karabakh and encouraging investment by Americans, Samoniantz said. But Pashayev wrote that, “while my Government welcomes in general the intention of the American city fathers to establish cultural exchanges with this city in Azerbaijan, you should be aware of the fact that it is the administrative center of the secessionist region of Nagorno Karabakh … currently under Armenian armed occupation, from which all non-Armenian residents have been forcibly expelled. As such it should not be presented as \ `Armenian city.”‘ On Saturday, the president of Nagorno Karabakh visited the Montebello-based Armenian Center as part of an international fund-raising effort to help pay for infrastructure building in the region.
