Bulldogs needs to open up in attack: LambBulldogs needs to open up in attack: Lamb

first_imgThe Bulldogs will enter the new year as one of the most under-pressure teams in the competition after coach Des Hasler survived an emergency board meeting in October to keep his job.But Lamb insists it’s time for his ex-Kangaroos roommate Hasler, who fights for a new contract next season, to deliver a premiership.”We’re a successful club. The last grand final that we won was 2004. We’ve been in two (grand finals) since and have gotten beat. We need to win,” Lamb told AAP.”We want to celebrate like the Sharkies did last season. That was a magnificent game last year, every grand final has been magnificent over the last three-to-four years. We want that.”And to do so, the three-time premiership-winner believes Canterbury need to take a leaf out of the team that ended their finals run in the first week in September.The Panthers almost dazzled their way into a fairytale grand final on the back of an enterprising style of play, but ultimately fell two games short after being ousted by Canberra.Lamb reckons the Bulldogs are a top-four team.”I don’t want to question what Dessie does on the field because he’s been very successful as a coach,” Lamb said.”But for me, Penrith came out 6-4 down at halftime against us in that elimination final, they scored four-to-five tries in that second half because they threw the ball around.”That proves that these days you need to attack more than you defend.”Lamb said he and Hasler have mended their relationship after Lamb questioned whether the former Manly coach understood the club’s famed ‘Dogs of War’ culture.Hasler came under more fire later in the year, surviving a sensational post-season board meeting that ended in board member Steve Mortimer stepping down from his role.”I had a meeting with Des, we spoke about it, we shook hands after it,” Lamb said.”When you know a person since 1986 as a roommate on a Kangaroo tour, it’s hard to put a knife through a friendship. But it’s not about what I want – it’s about what the club wants.”And that’s to be more flamboyant in the game itself.”last_img read more

The ‘other’ Saponjic of EuropeThe ‘other’ Saponjic of Europe

first_imgThe Bundesliga is not saved either. Fiete Arp (Bayern); Raffael (Gladbach); Pascal Köpke (Hertha); Matheus Cunha (RB Leipzig-Hertha); Dawid kownacki (Fortuna Dusseldorf); Yoric Ravet (Freiburg) and Taiwo Awoniyi (Mainz) they haven’t seen a door yet. The Saponjic case is just one more example of a forward who He still doesn’t know the goal’s honey this season. But the line that separates the success of the failure for a tip is its link with the goal and if you don’t score you don’t succeed. In LaLiga there are up to nine players plus the Serbian striker of Atlético que have not yet been released in an official match. Curiously one of them has rojiblanco past: Adrián López (Osasuna). In addition, from the former player of Porto, they are also on the list: Mariano (Real Madrid); Enric Gallego (Getafe-Osasuna); Quique (Eibar); Rony Lopes (Seville); Oliver Burke (Alavés); Cucho Hernández Y Pablo Chavarría (Mallorca) and decimated by injuries, Gonçalo Guedes (Valencia). The most striking case is that of the Portuguese soccer player of Seville whose performance is light years away from the one he gave in the Monaco. In France, the most flagrant case stars Timothy weah. Signing franchise of Lille, which does not end up having continuity beset by injuries. In Ligue 1 either they have wet front Thierry Ambrose (Metz) and Anastasios Donis (Reims) Another ‘acquaintance’ of AtletiIn Italy, there is another surprising case. An old acquaintance of Atlético, Nikola Kalinic, has disputed ten games with Roma without scoring, almost a year without drilling the rival goal (the last one did it just with the Girona mattress shirt in the Cup).center_img Alireza Jahanbakhsh is an Iranian player of Brighton which took almost 500 days to score his first goal in the Premier after breaking scoring figures in the Dutch league. Ivan Saponjic It hasn’t been that long without marking, not even a year ago-his last goal dates back to May 11, 2019 with the Benfica subsidiary– Although if you still do not enjoy opportunities with Simeone you can emulate the tip of the Brighton It is not the only case in Series A. They stand out Matteo Politano (Inter-Naples); Lukasz Teodorczyk (Udinese); Florian Ayé (Brescia); Alessandro Matri Y Giacomo Raspadori (Sassuolo) and Mattia Destro (Genoa). Droughts in the PremierIn the Premier there are also sounded cases although some players have enjoyed more minutes than Saponjic. It draws a lot of attention Dwight gayle Y Andy Carroll, who haven’t scored yet for the Newcastle. The case of the first is bleeding since last season scored 24 goals. Meanwhile, Carroll has almost one hundred goals in his long career in England. Other players illustrious attackers are: Emiliano Buendía (Norwich); David McGoldrick (Sheffield); Jordon Ibe Y Arnaut Danjuma (Bournemouth); the former of Granada and Malaga Isaac Success (Watford); Matej Vydra (Burnley); Che Adams (Southampton) and Christian Benteke (Crystal Palace), which adds a lonely goal in the last season and a half.last_img read more

first_imgBetis is a good team. He treats her well with the ball. I will not name the players you have. We knew we would suffer without the ball. We had our chances, but lacked precision. In every game you play life. We have to do our job and the remaining 14 matches, be serious. I hope we find the goal. Today we threw eleven times, but only once at the door. They four and two at the door. That is work, conviction. I have an honest and honest team. We lack that in the end. Have some more calm.Does the draw face the match against Celta?You have to go to Vigo with the lights on. And with the needs we have here. It is not worth doing caballas to see how the week goes. Let’s see how we recover those who are touched. You have to see how it goes. We will go with the mentality of the team that plays the descent.What is missing to win out?We defend better than what we attack. We need that end. We give every day more work to the offensive facet, because the defensive we have more assumed, assimilated. Offensively is where we are in debt. It is what we lack.What do you think of the play by Alex Moreno?Did you see my attitude, miss? I calm down, perfect. It’s football It is done. You asked that question 18 years ago and … bitch … but now … calm down. I do not know what happened. In the areas there is a mess, in that it was. There is nothing. I don’t complain I will never.In the last play he has not granted the advantage law …If I am an arbitrator, I do the same… that we can get into trouble. Neither did Braithwaite go alone. I was with one next to me. It is difficult to be a referee. I would have done the same.Good match of Soriano.Juan has been doing well for three games. With little work It was good today. But he did well. With Juan and with Pichu. Also with Lombo. It’s young … I have it warm there.What happened in Borja’s red?I saw nothing, I saw one of the physios on the floor. The referee showed him the red one and that’s it … it’s hard. Everyone wants to win. I don’t want to give it more importance.How do you manage not to leave the descent?Nothing, giving it naturalness. When we were 6 of salvation it was like that. While we depend on us. Not doing drama when lost, or euphoria of triumph. I don’t think about it anymore. In case of course you have to win. Today we have that bittersweet taste. You are with the accounts in your head …Why don’t you get Oscar holder?We have 25 players and everyone has to play. If Oscar left ask for another … It is one of those coach attacks, which removes the best according to the criteria of journalists, but the coach arrives, who is crazy and decides according to what he sees all the training and does not put it …What do you think of the schedule?The truth is that they are curious. We have very nice schedules. If it is not Friday it is at 12: 00 … today at two … Nothing happens. -J.

It was the case of this tie to zero between Leganés and Betis. A binge of boredom. The locals dominated the points, but it could end with a visitor triumph if it were not for the interventions of an attentive Soriano. The guard, owned by Sevilla, stopped Rubi’s in the second half after a start without a trace of the outsiders. On the Madrid side, the effervescence of Braithwaite was insufficient. Fair point. Borja Iglesias was expelled for pushing a physio from Lega in ’93.I was sweating Butarque when the ball rolled. It was not the spring temperature. It was scary. Imported in radio waves from the other Seville. The one of Pizjuán. That one that almost lets itself be overcome by Espanyol in the prologue of this duel. Emergencies squeezing the desires of an armored Leganés in the middle that began briskly in prudence, without risks and much cement in the face of this parody of Betis ‘stunned’. What an obsession with bland tenure. What a tostón.The plan also collided with Guido and Carvalho, rusty pulleys that left the Verdiblanco attack unpublished. Nor did the Lega look mordant, although he did go around Joel’s borders more, with Braithwaite transmuted into a mocking imp to fiddle between the gaps of Bartra and Mandi. Two clear ones he had until he forced the most obvious. Recio marred in the area a good service of the ram in overtime. Topped stumbled. And in between, mess. Estrada waited three minutes at a possible hand of Alex Moreno. Penalty that seemed, but did not whistle. Then he added two. Unheard.It was not Rubi. At the break he removed Guido and Emerson and took out Barragan and Loren. He revived Betis and Aguirre responded with Bryan and Oscar. Change that envied the big and resulted in hectic game, but without bubbles. Ruibal touched 1-0, but scored an excellent against collective. Soriano broke up another of Channels that almost herd Borja if it wasn’t for Silva’s intervention. Already with Tello (Joaquin was cheered) Soriano again scored Aleñá’s goal in an ugly epilogue for the gresca that led Borja in the red.Rubi: “It is usual to stay with ten”How do you know the point?It has been a bad first time, where Leganés has made us feel uncomfortable. In the match there was a chance to score. Ugly match. I’m getting annoyed. I wanted to win. It’s not easy here, the Leganés is winning. But I’m getting annoyed.What do you think of Borja’s red?I have not been able to see it. The intention he had was to play fast and by removing the ball, it has surely displaced the boy. And he has taken the red one. It’s a classic to keep ten even the last play.Hasn’t the idea of ​​Guido-Carvalho convinced you?It is evident that in the first part we have not been comfortable with or without the ball. You had to change things. You had to put a more creative center of the field. The change has been good for him. With Barragán we have sought to have more exit from outside and we have also reduced the risk of reds for the yellow ones that the substituted ones had.Does it look far from Europe?Whenever I finish a game, I worry about things that could go better. What we are not going to do is faint. We want to approach the top positions. For us it will not be missing, although there is great distance. -J. MartinAguirre: “We need to finish better”How did you value the match?I liked my team in the first part. In the second we try to find depth. We had the first one, but it already became a round trip.

Radiography of Madrid after seven months: the goal and the defenseRadiography of Madrid after seven months: the goal and the defense

first_img12 Militao (992; 17th)Another example of a player surpassed by demand and expectations. The 50 million investment today it seems too many. Militao, who despite this has made a fix in the calls of Brazil, has not threatened the welfare states of Ramos and Varane. Starting with him, Zidane’s men have won six games, lost four and tied one, with a slightly favorable goal balance: 17-16. He has not scored or assisted, while in Porto, in 2018-19, he made five goals and distributed four assists. The coronavirusLogically, also in sport, it has been a turning point. The season of Real Madrid, in the midst of many doubts, she was stopped by the health crisis after seven months of competition. Until then there was an alternation of light and shadow. The balance is good in goal and defense: 35 goals against in 39 games (0.89 on average) and 14 goals (18.18% of the total) and 18 assists in attack. Areola (674; 20º)Better sensations than data, which is still worthwhile being where it is. Has fitted 9 goals in 8 games (1.12 on average) and he has scored 3 doors to zero (37.5%). His stop percentage is discreet, 59.09% (that of Courtois, 72.92%), but in the club he has really liked his adaptation to the role of second goalkeeper. Worker, collaborator for the good atmosphere of the locker room, his transfer until June might not be his end at the Bernabéu. 5 two Marcelo (1,495; 11th)It still does not recover its old level, but streaks has offered better impressions than last season, the one that put him in the pillory. For it Zidane has put a cable in it, in the antipodes with the Brazilian of a Solari who promoted Reguilón. Statistics portray his offensive assets and his defensive debts: with him Madrid scores every 38 minutes and fits every 28; without it, every 77 and every 127. 2. 3 Carvajal (2,910; 5th)It has gone from less to more, losing even in the last stretch of 2019 the ownership in the Selection. Madrid, however, has missed him when he has not been: four wins and three losses without him. Its hierarchy and importance, in fact, led Odriozola to leave on loan in January. Mendy (1,638; 10th)One of Zidane’s big bets in terms of reinforcements, completely successful in view of its performance and how it has fallen into the hobby. Mendy has been presented as a rock in defense and a pylon hammer in attack, the heir to a left lane for which Marcelo, however, promises to fight. Nacho (641; 22º)His most difficult season since he settled in the first team. A difficult knee injury, the level of Ramos and Varane, and the commitment to Militao (€ 50m) have heeled him. Zidane recognizes his values ​​and his worth, but It has only taken him in nine games, three of them in the Cup. His versatility has helped him, acting six times on the sides.center_img 6 Sergio Ramos (3,033; 2nd)The captain, reliable although with some lapse in defense, as in the recent night of Villamarín, has differentiated himself since August in functions of ‘9’. With 7 goals, he is, equal to Rodrygo, the second top scorer of a template with wet gunpowder. 4 Varane (3,000; 3rd)The most regular of the Madridista back line. The knee has respected him, has found regularity, exceeded 300 games in white and taken a step forward in responsibility when it comes to taking the ball. To that we must add three goals and one assist. 3 Courtois (2,865 minutes; 6th of the squad)This more than half a year has proven his signing (around 35 million) and silenced the memories of Keylor Navas. The Belgian’s records are unquestionable: 26 goals in 32 games (0.81 average) and 15 goals to zero (46.87%). Zamora, after Casillas’ in 2007-08, is again a real goal in Madrid. 13 one Odriozola (434; 23rd)Weighed down by the weight of the shirt, With errors as notorious as his unnecessary expulsion in the Mallorca debacle, he went on loan to Bayern in winter. In Munich it has hardly fared better, only 70 minutes, But it is still his great opportunity to demonstrate what led him to Madrid and La Roja.last_img read more

Espai Barça never endEspai Barça never end

first_imgHe April 5, 2014six years ago this Sunday, 72.36% of partners del Fútbol Club Barcelona voted yes to the Espai Barça project designed byr Sandro Rosell and finally activated by Josep Maria Bartomeu. Of the 118,578 members called on April 5, only 37,535 voted. Up to 27,161 voted in favor of a project that had 9,589 votes against and 751 blank votes. The participation was of a little 31.65 percent. But the ‘soci’ had voted yes to Espai Barça.Six years after that vote, and as if from a curse it was, he Espai Barçabeyond the inauguration of the Johan Cruyff Stadium, still does not start. But not only has its roadmap been delayed. Also their financing conditions. So much so that the board has already admitted that the project will have to undergo a second referendum.Initially, the Espai Barça budget amounted to 600 million. Some 420 were budgeted to put a new skin to the Camp Nou (The winning project was that of the Japanese studio Nikken Sekkei, whose excellence is questioned by some experts); 90 million more would be dedicated to the Nou Palau and the rest, to the works of conditioning a new space around the facilities that would touch the streets adjacent to the Camp Nou. The 600 million were to come out of a simple three-part partition. The Barca I would ask 200 million euros from a bank, others 200 million would come out of naming rights and, finally, the last 200 would come from operating profits from restaurant services, shops, ticketing … He time passed, the agreements with the City Council were delayed and the project price grew. Furthermore, and after flirt with some foreign and national multinationals (Grifols) for the hackneyed title right, a study of Goldman Sachs helped, supposedly, to change the strategy of Barça. According to that Goldman Sachs study, the new recreation space, With the Nou Camp Nou as the jewel in the crown, it could produce up to 150 million euros in income of exploitation. It was therefore working use a credit that it would have to be returned year after year with that operating income but that, in the long run, could generate more benefits in the club And, above all, he would not be a slave to the contract he signed with the company that would give the Camp Nou a surname. Furthermore, the Barça found from the beginning the trouble that no company, no matter how big, wanted advance 200 million. Multinationals only accepted installment payments.So the idea of new financing of the Espai Barça began to gather strength as the works never started (the last date was this summer 2020) and Bartomeu and its Board of Directors considered the convening of a extraordinary assembly of compromisarios for start it. But it was not like that. Finally, and perhaps for fear of losing that vote, as had happened with the new shield at the 2019 Assembly, Bartomeu rethought the situation and activated the idea of a second referendum. This would put the candidates of the 2021 elections in check, who should approve their project. And, in case of losing, I would say that it was the partner’s democratic decision.The coronavirus crisis, The last stumbling block that Espai Barça has encountered, has braking the summons of that second referendum that he is now thinking about the end of the year, but that he has already found a discordant voice. Victor Font dropped that, given the proximity of the elections (June 2021), could sound logical that the candidates back to them expose your financing ideas to give the green light to Espai Barça. Basically that the idea of Espai Barça between within the electoral campaign and that, once elected president, it be done based on how he projected it. Bartomeu has not yet spoken publicly about that Font amendment. But it has announced the convening of a second referendum.The immovable is that, six years after the referendum that gave the project the green light, Espai Barça is the Espai Barça never end.last_img read more

Thebes, anniversary under pressureThebes, anniversary under pressure

first_imgOn April 26 as today, but from 2013, Javier Tebas (Costa Rica, 1962) was named president of LaLiga, then LFP, replacing Astiazarán. He came to office after being vice president and leading the G-30. Since then, he has achieved an extreme professionalization and international expansion of the organization (physical presence in 46 countries and television signal in 200), and has managed to make the clubs go from being indebted entities to leading companies in what he calls “the industry of entertainment”. Now, that growth has been slowed by this harsh coronavirus crisis, so, as experts say, “until the 2022-23 season, normalcy will not return.” Hence, Thebes celebrates this Sunday an unhappy anniversary, concerned about the effects on football and reviving the competition; with footballers and doctors anxious about the protocols and with several clubs very annoyed by the plans for promotions and descents if it is not played.The Tebas’ mandate began with the establishment of an economic control elevated today to law under the umbrella of the Higher Sports Council since the time of Miguel Cardenal. The clubs have gone from owing to the Treasury 634 million to less than 47, all of them within contests with approved deadlines for payment. A government institution with which the leader came to see himself in court (“the tax collector wants to liquidate the clubs”). In this process of sanitation, its strategy contributed to ending complaints about non-payments to players (there were 153 in 2013), before a custom embodied in dozens of reports with lock-ups in the locker room. His obsession with money was such that two months after occupying his chair, he proposed lowering his salary to 348,000 euros. His predecessor earned 395,000 and he said in the hallways that that was a lot. The intransigence with which they did not comply led Elche and Murcia to drop to 2ºB. Meanwhile, he implemented a radical change with the schedules to give each party a strip from Friday to Monday, the controversy of which still reaches our days. There, an unpopularity grew that later varied due to its position with Catalonia (“If it becomes independent, Barça and Espanyol would not play LaLiga”), its sincerity in AS (“I am a Real Madrid player”) or its affinity for VOX. “In Twitter I have no followers, what I have are persecutors, “he says.His next milestone, after balancing the accounts, was to boost revenues to compete in the best conditions with the Premier in a fierce market. His move was to hold on to the power of television. The 2015 Royal Audiovisual Decree, now reformed by Irene Lozano, marked the step and was decisive, with benefits for professional football, for amateur football and even for other federations. LaLiga, when Thebes arrived, entered 851 million for the commercialization of the rights, before individually, so the ratio between the one who earned the most and the least was 6 to 1. With it, a joint sale was formalized (3.5 to 1), with revenues skyrocketing to 2,111 million. In that growth, LaLiga joined Mediapro as a commercial agent abroad, with a significant premium.Thebes also led a new image in terms of Security and Integrity. The hacking of the signal was subtracting some 500,000 subscribers a year. With the amaños it got to write a book on this subject (Football is not like that), ignoring those veiled criticisms they make (and reach) off the record some of his opponents because the Huesca that he presided over was, supposedly, involved in various puddles in the past. Now, with the sentence of Osasuna case, also analyzed by its critics as a smokescreen to the controversy of the tests, LaLiga has been rewarded for its fight against corruption. But Thebes’s pride is his anti-ultras crusade. Jimmy’s death (2014) was a turning point. Villar’s passivity did not stop him. He prohibited them from being in the stands and asked to modify the regulations with partial closings due to physical or verbal violence, while pleading to toughen the penalties of the Penal Code. He became so serious that he dismissed Augusto César Lendoiro as ambassador for attending Jimmy’s funeral to say goodbye to the Depor fan.New times in the bossesAfter plugging the leaks in income and reputation, the clubs already enter a total of 4,100 million annually, making football account for 1.37% of GDP and feed 700,000 families. This made it possible for Thebes to force his associates to invest in the improvement of the stadiums (not only is the Bernabéu underway), perfect the audiovisual product and security to be able to sell the product at a higher price and diversify the business. The growth was such that Thebes was also improving his salary. First it went to 425,000 euros. Then to 879,033 (629,033 fixed plus 250,000 for fees). And two years ago, he put to the vote, after an offer from the Serie A that many question but which was confirmed by managers of the Italian championship itself, which will receive 1.2 million euros net plus 250,000 extra. Almost all supported him except Madrid, with whom he has had several disputes in the courts, Athletic, Celta and two Second-tier entities. It always enjoyed majority support. Although he said that he would establish a limit of two terms, He has been re-elected twice (2017 and 2020) without opposition and holds the keys to the Madrid headquarters in Torrelaguna until 2024. Alex Aranzábal (ex Eibar) tried to keep his pulse the first time, but eventually backed down. In LaLiga it is not like in the RFEF: you can only give the endorsement to a candidate and Thebes, who handled the information and deadlines, always assured them on time. However, this general confidence has waned. In the last electoral process, Madrid, Celta, Zaragoza, Barça, Athletic, Getafe, Extremadura and Sporting, due to discrepancies and because the last five preferred to act like this when forming the Electoral Committee, they did not endorse him. Perhaps due to this growing division, many leaders think that Tebas has been with the idea of ​​becoming something like the CEO of LaLiga for a long time, to focus on the international audiovisual market and hand over the day-to-day staff to Carlos Suárez (Valladolid), Quico Catalán (Levante) or a trusted dolphin.Another evolving relationship is with the Federation. After his crude war with Villar (“he thinks he has a farmhouse”), a new time seemed to begin. Rubiales’ arrival was an opportunity to improve things, but his battles have been even tougher (competitions, on Mondays, Plan Miami, VAR …), losing several of them. The tension dates back to 2015, when Tebas stopped a strike led by Rubiales and several other unionists who now work for LaLiga in AFE (“don’t come with scenes like Bildu and HB”). The Viana Pact, for which the employers will inject 200 million euros into Spanish sport in four years, indicates that there has been a truce. “I wish the RFEF president luck and that he makes the best decision,” Thebes said Friday about the redevelopment of the 2nd B.
