Pereira: “It will not be much less the result of Barcelona”

first_imgThe faces against Atlético are again seen, where he played two seasons and took two leagues, how will his return and the match against the mattresses be?Being the first against the second, the more you win. Back to Atlético, a club where I was very good and treated me very well, is always beautiful and special. The hobby is always present and I like it a lot. It will be a beautiful game and eager to live it.What is clear is that Atlético does not go through its best moment, they do not find their best version and they are already nine points …Each year they have been key players, they have been winning Laliga for three years despite that and in the end it is difficult to be so many years up to keep winning, but I think that because of the character of the players I know they will get ahead. Sometimes there are bad streaks and it is difficult to leave. We expect a competitive game such as Atlético, no matter what happens, the character of the players over happens everything that can happen.Dani González opens on the bench of Atlético and they say that a new technical victory sure, will you go to break that saying?Let’s hope so. I think he is a house technician who knows the values ​​and how an Atlético team has to play. Hopefully we break that saying, but surely it will not be much less the result of Barcelona.This year it seems that you have taken the First Iberdrola very seriously and you have the title very expensive …We have always taken it very seriously. It is true that you cannot lose so many games, Atlético this year is costing you more to get results and that is why we have distanced ourselves. In this league, if you play in two games being Atlético or Barça, it is very difficult because the other team does not fail. This year it was our turn to have the good run and compete all the games, they are costing them more. It was already time for things to turn upside down and we were ahead.You are doing a season and today Barcelona seems unstoppable, what has changed with other years?He signed very well and something different from what he had and has helped us to be that different team, that improved version of Barça that this year is giving us a great game. They are more goals and fewer goals conceded. That is positive, in the end with three changes we have been able to change the version, but it is an improved version. Could not be another year without winning anything Barca, we want to place where it deserves to be.In addition, Lluís Cortés is doing many rotations, but the team does not suffer …It is something important, in the end not having such a base team being able to change five or six players and keep winning is positive, not only because they are all motivated but because they can take breaks. Many competitions are coming, now with the Super Cup we add one more, and to get it right at the end it is important the rotations. You know that you are going to play and you will be motivated and it gives you confidence when you have to leave. Personal level things are also going very well, even though Van der Grart started out as a starter, the Dutchwoman’s injury has given her the job and now there is no one to move her from there.Knowing how to wait for your opportunity and be all prepared, not just me, all, in the end you don’t know with so many games what can happen. Unfortunately Van Der Grart was injured and I took the opportunity and I think I have fulfilled.And getting Barcelona to be a very difficult team to win …Many times we talk to Mapi when it is 6-1, 3-1, that goal, even if you have scored so many goals, that goal gives you bad feelings. That they score a goal and more in the way they get it that already lowers the concentration a little because with 6-0 the same is not important, but with what comes ahead, that goal and that lack of concentration can result more negative That goal leaves you feeling that we don’t like anything.It’s hard to stay focused with those markers.It is true that in the end you go forward wanting to enlarge the difference and in the end by deconcentration or thinking more about scoring another goal you end up forgetting the defense a bit. Hopefully this goal that we get sometimes does not affect us very negatively. The matches that come is something important to have the goal to zero.Winning Atletico at home, do you think the league is over?Finished not because there are many games left and we know that Atlético will not give up until he is a mathematician. It is a large mattress and a different assumable to face the second round with more rotations and changes and know that you have Champions, Super Cup, Cup … it gives you a little more that you can deconcentrate a tad to fight for the rest of competitions but it is not won . Be first-hand how Atlético is and how are your players, even Levante, it is a good mattress, but it is not finished.Another challenge will be to stay alive in Champions, where last year you got something historic …We focus primarily on winning the league. Having the reference from last year in Champiosn we could live it and hopefully it will happen again. The main thing is the league and then in March we will think about the champions. Now we have this game, the Super Cup, the Cup …With two other Classics in Europe plus the Super Cup, Go binge of Classics!Yes, the truth is that when we saw the Super Cup draw we think, for the analyst it will be less work. There are many games and I think that for us it is negative. If you win the first one, you think the second one goes with more confidence and that is where you can make that mistake, both they and us. You win and think it’s possible, you go out clueless and the surprise can come out. They will be beautiful and disputed games that the fans like this type of games and hopefully they all decide in our favor.Where do you see in June?I do not know, I hope that if possible playing many finals. I am living in the present, I try to focus on this and for June there is a lot left …last_img read more

Campesino for Gladiator Trophy feature race at Caymanas

first_imgSix starters have been declared for today’s open-allowance feature over 1400 metres for the Gladiator Trophy, including super fit CAMPESINO, who faces two tough opponents in PHINEAS and LONG RUNNING TRAIN.Significantly, all three were prepared for the December 5 Diamond Mile, but none managed to get into the race, having failed to secure the necessary earnings to make the top 16. They were placed on the reserve list instead, and with the first 16 entries standing their ground, CAMPESINO, in particular, at number one on the reserve list, failed to squeeze into the race, much to the displeasure of his owner Howard Hamilton.Today, CAMPESINO has a glorious opportunity to resume winning ways with outgoing champion jockey Dane Nelson riding for 14-time champion trainer Philip Feanny.CAMPESINO is still in fine fettle following his good second to the progressive POKER STAR in the fast-run Glen Mills Caribbean Sprint on November 14.In this small field, the five-year-old son of Campadre-Yaella should get first run on the recent Coca Cola Invitational Mile winner PHINEAS from the Andrew McDonald stables and Harry Parsard’s 3-y-o filly LONG RUNNING TRAIN, now bidding for a hat-trick, into the straight. And this should prove a decisive factor in CAMPESINO’S winning bid.PHINEAS beat him by 13/4 lengths when they last met over this trip back in June and went on to beat none other than subsequent Diamond Mile winner SEEKING MY DREAM by a head in the Invitational Mile. But CAMPESINO enjoys a 4.5 kg swing in the scales today, and, if anything, is a better horse now. He thus gets my vote.The day’s supporting feature for the War Zone Sprint Trophy has attracted 12 starters, including top contenders ROYAL ASSAULT, with Shane Ellis riding for trainer Anthony Nunes and recent winner FEARLESS FURY, who is unbeaten in two starts. The latter will be ridden by promising 4.0 kg claiming apprentice Dane Dawkins for trainer Fitzroy Glispie, and the fact that he is set to receive 7.0 kg from the speedy ROYAL ASSAULT, tilts the balance in his favour.I also like ELVIRA in the second race; JAMAI RAJA in the third for maiden two-year-olds; as well as down-in-class RAGING PROSPECT IN The fifth; YOGA in the sixth; and the recently disqualified winner, PRINCE O’SHAUN, in the 12th and final.last_img read more

first_imgScores of diabetic patients in Region Two (Pomeroon-Supenaam) have been complaining of having to incur additional expenses to purchase insulin medication and also the syringes for them to receive their treatment at the Suddie Public Hospital.The State-run medical facility is without insulin injections and syringes since late January, and although requests were made for additional supplies, there still remains a shortage.According to patients, they are given prescriptions to purchase the insulin and syringes and to return to have doctors administer same.This is causing great inconvenience, as many patients cannot afford to purchase the medication.Recently, several persons were admitted to the Hospital for hypertension and there is very little that medical practitioners can do. Pensioners are predominately affected, since they cannot afford to purchase the medication needed.“It seem as if we have to reserve to alternative measures of eating cucumber to lower we pressure, I have been never out of tablets or injections… it’s frustrating, I cannot afford this, my pension has to maintain me and I can’t ask my children,” a poor pensioner from Marias Lodge related.Residents are therefore calling on Public Health Minister, Dr George Norton to immediately intervene, since the situation had become extremely burdensome.Guyana Times was also made to understand that the Hospital is in need of additional medical supplies.

Council to hear report Tuesday about possible community run health clinic

first_imgAccording to Council, one of the main reasons physician recruitment and retention is said to be such a challenge for Fort St. John is issues surrounding overhead and cost of operation for a family practice. The challenges along with the Physician Compensation model has led to a public clinic being proposed.A public clinic would provide for a fully staffed medical office where physicians can work using a salary compensation model. Under this system the physician would not be required to run the facility as a business, unlike the current clinics in Fort St. John, with the exception of the unattached medical clinic.Council will hear on Tuesday if a public clinic is viable in Fort St. John.  The report was commissioned at a cost of $52,600.- Advertisement –last_img read more

Championship round-up: Watford close gap on summit as promotion rivals falter

first_img1 Watford striker Matej Vydra scored twice as the Hornets moved to within three points of the Championship summit with a stunning 3-2 comeback victory against Leeds United at Elland Road.The Hornets fell behind early when Billy Sharp pounced after a mix up between Ikechi Anya and Heurelho Gomes to add his fourth goal of the season.Leeds then went further ahead with barely 20 minutes played after Rodolph Austin impeccably executed a half-volley over the hapless Gomes from 30 yards.The Hornets, however, crucially responded just before half time when captain Troy Deeney latched onto Matej Vydra’s through ball to notch his second goal in a week.Deeney then returned the favour for strike partner Vydra who struck at the back post to level proceedings just before the hour mark.Vydra, in the absence of in-form striker Odion Ighalo, had the final say with a powerful finish in the final ten minutes to propel the visitors up to third and ensure their fifth victory in six league games.In fact, Watford were the only team in the Championship top seven to win as leaders Derby County fell to a surprise 2-0 defeat to Fulham at Craven Cottage.Steve McClaren’s side remain two points clear at the top of the table, but were lacklustre against a side they had already scored ten goals against in two games previously this season, with goals from Bulgarian centre back Nikolay Bodurov and Cauley Woodrow sealing the upset.Second placed Middlesbrough also suffered a surprise defeat as Sheffield Wednesday struck twice – through Will Keane and Atdhe Nuhiu from the penalty spot – in two second-half minutes to grab a 2-0 victory at Hillsborough.Former Brentford striker Clayton Donaldson came back to haunt the club he scored 46 times for as Birmingham City dented the Bees play-off hopes with a 1-0 win at St Andrews.Donaldson forced Brenford defender James Tarkowski into an own goal just before half time and, despite Stephen Gleeson’s late sending off, Birmingham held on for their first win in nine games.Bakary Sako’s third goal in a week was enough for Wolves as their 1-0 win at Cardiff City closed the gap on the play-offs to just two points.Nottingham Forest remain unbeaten under new manager Dougie Freedman after an impressive 3-0 victory over Reading at the Madejski.Stunning second half goals from Ben Osborn, Matty Fryatt and Gary Gardner ensured a league double over the Royals and kept Forest’s slim play-off hopes alive.At the other end of the table, Kari Arnason struck late on as Rotherham came from a goal down to beat relegation rivals Millwall 2-1 and move six points clear of their opponents.And in the other big relegation encounter, Wigan Athletic increased their survival chances as they comfortably beat basement side Blackpool 3-1 at Bloomfield Road.Goals from Kim Bo-Kjung, on-loan defender Harry Maguire and James McClean ensured an easy win for the Latics and, despite a late Gary Madine consolation, the three points kept Malky Mckay’s side within touching distance of their rivals.Former Celtic striker Tony Watt scored twice to ruin Chris Powell’s return to his former side as Charlton beat Huddersfield 3-0 at the Valley.Meanwhile, highly-rated youngster Zach Clough scored his fifth goal in five league starts as Bolton beat relegation rivals Brighton 1-0 at the Macron Stadium.Elsewhere, in a game that was delayed by half an hour after a serious car crash, Bournemouth remain fourth after they were held to a 0-0 draw at home to Blackburn Rovers, extending the Cherries’ winless run to five games.Championship results in full:Birmingham 1 – 0 BrentfordBlackpool 1 – 3 WiganBolton 1 – 0 BrightonBournemouth 0 – 0 BlackburnCardiff City 0 – 1 WolvesCharlton 3 – 0 HuddersfieldFulham 2 – 0 DerbyLeeds 2 – 3 WatfordReading 0 – 3 Nottingham ForestRotherham 2 – 1 MillwallSheffield Wednesday 2 – 0 Middlesbrough Matej Vydra last_img read more

Quique Sanchez Flores exit is ‘CRAZY’ – Watford captain Troy Deeney

first_img1 Quique Sanchez Flores oversaw his last game as Watford manager on Sunday Watford captain Troy Deeney has described the decision to let head coach Quique Sanchez Flores leave the club as ‘crazy’.The Hornets secured a second season in the Premier League by finishing well clear of the drop zone in an impressive 13th place – their highest top-flight placing in 29 years.But the Spaniard has paid the price for a torrid second half of the campaign, and will leave the club having played their final game of the season.The Hornets, promoted from the Championship last season, also reached the FA Cup semi-finals in Sanchez Flores’ first season in charge.And Deeney believes the 51-year-old was harshly treated by the club, who will now begin their search for a new permanent boss.“His time here has been a success,” the striker told several national newspapers.“He’s brought me on a lot as a player. I have nothing but gratitude. We’ve had 16 new players and he’s made it seem effortless.“Sunderland have been in the bottom three and managed to stay up, and Sam Allardyce is being hailed as a great manager, which he is, for keeping them up.“But we’ve seemingly coasted through this season and our gaffer’s been sacked. It’s one of those crazy ones.”last_img read more
