Camp Nou squeezes: Bartomeu’s second scourge

first_imgJosep Maria Bartomeu had to endure before the game against the Real society a new wash by the partner in the Camp Nou. A reaction that began very shy, after stopping to play the hymn through the speakers, but that little by little he gained momentum and force until the scream rumbles throughout the stadium: “Bartomeu resigns!”.The Blaugrana leader stoically endured the reaction of a member who publicly showed his dissatisfaction with the way he managed the club. It is true that it was not a majority reaction, since there were also whistles against the cloth, but the white scarves ended up gaining ground and were visualized by all the stands of the Camp Nou, curiously many near the box. On this occasion, the wash was neither the intensity nor the duration of the day of Eibar. And it must be remembered that in that game it took more than five minutes to start the match due to technical problems, which led to people having more time to expand and show their anger. In any case, Messi’s goals served to partially appease the waters.What seems clear is that the situation remains entrenched and without short-term fix signs, since many partners consider that the only solution is to advance the elections for this summer, while Bartomeu is more in favor of exhausting his mandate until June 30, 2021, despite whoever weighs and falls who falls.There were also songs in favor of Setién’s second, Eder Sarabia, by the Grada de Animación Joven.last_img read more

Fort St. John tops October precipitation average in first week, again

first_imgLast year the first seven days of the month resulted in 29.7 millimetres, including 28.2 on the first day. However, it was the tenth of the month before we received the first measurable snowfall of the season of 4.4 centimetres. This year it appears we’ll wait longer than that, as the current seven day forecast indicates we dodged another possibility of overnight flurries, and the only precipitation now predicted through Thanksgiving Day is a 60 per cent chance of showers tomorrow. – Advertisement –last_img read more

Griezmann would be a bargain at 11.9bn- Luis

first_imgBarca striker Luis Suarez has spoken about Griezmann as though a deal has already been agreed, prompting Atletico’s chief executive Miguel Angel Gil Marin to say they were “fed up” with the behaviour of the Catalan club.Griezmann could leave Atletico on a high by winning the Europa League final against Marseille next week.“Griezmann is cheap, for sure, at 100 million euros in this market,” Filipe said.“It will seem even cheaper if he plays well in the final. That is the reality, but neither Griezmann, nor the rest of us, are thinking about this. After the final yes, but not before.“We all want to win and it has no effect. We are delighted to play with him, but we are not just Griezmann, many players have worked hard to make this final.“Without doubt he has been our most decisive player this season, so we want him to stay. But what happens afterwards is something completely separate from what happens this week.”Griezmann has scored 30 goals in 51 games this season, including a crucial away goal against Arsenal in the first leg of the Europa League semi-final.The Frenchman has formed a strong partnership with Diego Costa, who insists Griezmann’s focus is currently on the final in Lyon.“For a player, when Barca wants you, it makes you feel important,” Costa said.“But he knows that he is important for us and that we want him here. If then he leaves or not, it’s his decision.“I am very happy with him, with the group, and right now he is thinking of winning a title. If Griezman can make history here with us, win that title, then there’s time after for him to decide what to do.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Atletico Madrid defender Filipe Luis admits the club would be letting Antoine Griezmann go on the cheap if his 100 million euro buyout clause is met this summer © AFP/File / PIERRE-PHILIPPE MARCOUMADRID, Spain, May 10 – Atletico Madrid defender Filipe Luis admits the club would be letting Antoine Griezmann go on the cheap if his Sh11.9bn (100 million euro) buyout clause is met this summer.Griezmann has insisted he wants his future resolved before the start of the World Cup, amid speculation the striker is set for a move to Barcelona.last_img read more

first_imgDonegal manager Jim McGuinness has said he will not accept coming out second best against Dublin in the All-Ireland semi-final.Jim McGuinness is still hatching his plan for Dublin.The Glenties man set out his stall at a press conference in Letterkenny Rachel McLaughlin With his captain Michael Murphy by his side, McGuinness spoke for 40 minutes about his thoughts on the clash against the current All-Ireland champions.He said the management team are in the midst of forming a game plan to see off Dublin and battle tactics are yet to be cemented.But McGuinness spoke with clarity and concentration when he said “I definitely don’t want to be associated with being a gallant loser.”The even better news coming form today’s press conference is that Karl Lacey has shown a remarkable recovery from injury which threatened his place in the starting line-up for the August 31st clash. McGuinness revealed Lacey, who damaged his hamstring in the match against Armagh, has made a good recovery.He trained this morning with the medical team and will be back to training with the Donegal squad on Tuesday night. McGuiness said that they had feared the worst, but Lacey’s recovery has been great and he has regained full strength.He added that his entire team are now focused on the job in hand and are in a much better position than they were last year.“We’re 70 minutes from the All-Ireland final, and we’ve got to try and do everything in our power to be in that final, and that’s the approach we’ll be taking to the game,” he said.Participation at training is at 93%, while it was at approx. 40% in 2013, he added. “We’ve a lot of work done, they (the players) have been very focused, and as we sit here today we have a fully-fit, healthy squad and we’re looking forward to the game.”Despite Donegal’s narrow win over Armagh in the quarter-final on the 9th of August, their performance was disappointing, McGuinness said. “We have levels and we have standards, and a lot of the things that we’re normally good at, we weren’t.”McGuiness put last week’s unimpressive performance down to unforced errors and poor decision making. However he maintained that the team have played to a consistently-high level throughout the rest of the season.The odds are firmly in Dublin’s favour, and McGuiness is all too aware of this. He gave a detailed analysis of the opposition’s game that proved just how much of a threat the Dublin team presents. “They’re very fit, they’re very strong, they’re well-organised and they’ve got their system now well down the track in terms of their development.”“You can see the patterns, you can what they’re doing and the support play and it’s really really impressive.”All things considered, McGuinness said that Donegal are happy with their level of athleticism and hope they can match Jim Gavin’s side.How he plans to avoid defeat, though, will not be revealed until the big day.‘I DON’T WANT TO BE A GALLANT LOSER AGAINST DUBLIN’ – GAA BOSS McGUINNESS was last modified: August 17th, 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:All-Ireland semi-finaldonegaldublinGAAJim McGuinnesslast_img read more

No arrests had been made by Monday and no vehicles recovered. Also Sunday, sheriff’s deputies arrested Selena Ross, 29, after several people complained that she was walking through traffic and behaving erratically during the Love Ride celebration. According to Sgt. Deborah Miller, when deputies tried to subdue Ross, she tried to hit the deputies and bit one of them. After being placed in the patrol car, Ross kicked out the windshield and attempted to escape, suffering minor injuries in the process. Ross was booked into the Santa Clarita Valley station and appeared in court Monday. Carol Rock, (661) 257-5252 CASTAIC – Eleven motorcycles were stolen Sunday from various locations and a woman was arrested on suspicion of assaulting a police officer during the annual Love Ride, which attracted 22,000 riders to Castaic Lake. Sheriff’s Lt. Bill Weiss said four of the bikes – two of them custom-built – were stolen from the Castaic Lake Recreation Area. Bikes also were taken from parking lots at Chuy’s Mesquite Broiler in Newhall, El Torito in Valencia and Route 66 Classic Grill, where the after-party for the ride was held. Nine of the motorcycles were Harley-Davidsons. “It’s not unusual to have a few bikes stolen,” Weiss said. “When you have so many in one place, it’s hard to secure them.” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

first_imgCONVICTED child rapist Liam Adams claimed a paedophile ring operated in County Donegal.The brother of Sinn Fein president Gerry Adams is behind bars awaiting sentence for the vile abuse of his own daughter.But in 1998 he told the Irish Independent newspaper that a paedophile ring was operating in Louth where he worked as a youth worker – and it had links to Co Donegal. But in an article in the Irish Independent in July 1998 on paedophilia in Co Louth, Liam Adams warned about groups of paedophiles.The article read: “Youth community leader Liam Adams says there is a strong local involvement in what he described as a ‘very well organised arrangement’ which may also have links in Donegal. ‘We have names of well-known business people who we are 100pc sure are involved.’“But he says that the authorities should be doing more to investigate the situation based on the evidence which has emerged so far.”Of course what no-one knew then – apart from daughter Aine – was he himself was was a paedophile.Adams, 58, from Bernagh Drive, Belfast, was found guilty of ten offences, including rape and gross indecency against his daughter Áine AdamsThe abuse was committed over a six-year period between 1977 and 1983, when she was aged between four and nine.Áine Adams has said she could now begin her life at 40 and “lay to rest the memory of the five-year-old who was abused.”Sinn Fein president Gerry Adams admitted confronting his brother in a house in Buncrana about the incidents in 1987.Aine claimed her uncle threatened her father with a hammer, a claim denied by the politician.The RUC had been aware of the allegations from 1987, but the PSNI only investigated the allegations 20 years later.REVEALED: CHILD ABUSER LIAM ADAMS CLAIMED A PAEDOPHILE RING OPERATED IN DONEGAL was last modified: October 5th, 2013 by John2Share 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:Liam Adamspervertlast_img read more
