The agreement between the two clubs is very close and Oscar did not hide in the press conference prior to the duel with the Osasuna that the future of Lobotka does not pass through Balaidos. The Sabadell coach said he would not have the pivot if he did not see it centered and admitted with resignation that “I have also been a professional player and I know that football players want to play the Champions League and a European competition.” The hours of Stanislav Lobotka in Celta they are counted.

It’s a big part of their food bank and we’re just happy to be able to contribute.”On the ice the Huskies next play in Dawson Creek on Wednesday at 8 p.m., and their next home game comes on Friday night at 8 p.m. against the Grande Prairie JDA Kings. Allen Karasiuk is one of the event organizers. He says the food collected along with local support made the Fill the Bus Campaign a great success.“It’s been a great day. We’ve collected over 24,000 pounds. In addition to that we’ve got the $10,000 in regards to Tervita’s generosity, and another $1,400 through the Rotary Club and Canadian Tire,” he says. “With Tervita putting out the call for companies to step forward and jump on board with them, that’s in the works right now, so all in all a great day.”  Karasiuk says the novice players in minor hockey were a great help in helping to collect food for the event, and other volunteers contributed greatly as well.- Advertisement -“Through minor hockey the novices stepped up big time. Seven year olds were out there collecting and learning about volunteerism and supporting the community,” he explains. “We’ve got volunteers from all walks; families of the Huskies, the Huskies themselves who are really the spearhead behind all this. Just people that are generally interested. It’s a real community effort. It’s difficult to mention everybody but it’s all appreciated.”The Salvation Army food bank is a worthy cause Karasiuk says, and he’s happy that the hockey club was able to lend a helping hand.Advertisementlast_img read more

first_imgTEMPE, Ariz. – The Angels’ offseason could best be described as a glass-half-empty, glass-half-full situation. The optimists will point to the various reviews that say the Angels might possess the best bullpen in the American League, if not in all of baseball. Francisco Rodriguez might be a notch behind the New York Yankees’ Mariano Rivera for the title of best closer, but the Angels’ right-hander probably has more value considering that at age 25, he is 12 years younger than Rivera. Rodriguez’s 92 saves over the past two seasons are the most in baseball, and his 312 strikeouts over the past three seasons are the most over that span for a reliever. With Colon on the mend, Lackey inherits the role as staff ace. His mastery of the Oakland Athletics last season (3-1 with a 2.10 ERA in five starts) will be counted on again. Colon wants to be back for Opening Day, but his recent injury history suggests a more patient timetable. Adding free-agent Justin Speier while trading Brendan Donnelly to the Boston Red Sox effectively strengthened the middle relief corps, which leads into set-up man Scot Shields. CATCHER It will be a wide-open race for the Opening Day slot between Jose Molina, Mike Napoli and Jeff Mathis. The veteran Molina might be playing with some fire this season after missing out on a lucrative bonus in September. Molina was relegated to the bench in the final few days of the season, costing him a games-played incentive. Napoli has the inside track at a roster spot over Mathis and anything close to his torrid stretch last June (six home runs, 17 RBI) will net him the starting spot. Mathis would have the most to prove after making the Opening Day roster last season and lasting only a month before he was sent back to Triple-A Salt Lake. Much of Mathis’ struggles last April were on the defensive side but he got his game back together at Salt Lake to earn his third organization defensive player of the year award. A strong spring from the trio could lead to a three-catcher system to start the season. Mathis would also enhance his trade value with a strong spring. INFIELD Things are set up the middle with Orlando Cabrera at shortstop and Howie Kendrick taking over for the departed Adam Kennedy at second. The biggest battle of the spring likely will take place at first where Casey Kotchman, Kendry Morales and Shea Hillenbrand will fight it out for the starting spot. Morales appeared to have the edge with some impressive power numbers in winter ball, but he ended up with a sore knee. He isn’t expected to miss much time this spring. Kotchman, who has the best defensive skills of the bunch, also played winter ball after missing most of last season with mononucleosis. Third base belongs to Chone Figgins, whose lackluster on-base percentage will force him to move to the No. 9 spot in the lineup. Matthews will take over at leadoff. Maicer Izturis, Robb Quinlan and Hillenbrand could see significant time at third if Figgins falters. Even if he doesn’t end up at first or third, Hillenbrand still could see significant time in the designated-hitter role. OUTFIELD Say what you want about Matthews’ $50 million deal but the signing instantly made the Angels better defensively. Remember, it was defense that was a big part of the team’s slow start and ultimate undoing last season. But even the best defense isn’t enough to justify $10 million per season. Matthews will be looked upon to deliver, at minimum, his 19 home runs and 79 RBI from last season. The team will be just fine with his .313 batting average and .371 on-base percentage from last year as well. Losing Juan Rivera to a broken leg in winter ball was costly. His status still is unknown with an optimistic return date set for the all-star break. With Rivera out, Reggie Willits and Tommy Murphy will be in line for a backup role. A healthy Anderson will be vital. The sore foot that plagued him all last season started a year ago next month in Cactus League action. The injury could be blamed for his reduced production, but Anderson’s .280 batting average last season with 17 home runs and 85 RBI, was not much different from his 2005 numbers (.283, 17, 95). 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! Now for the pessimists. Not only did the Angels not add the impact bat they desired, owner Arte Moreno essentially reneged on a boast to enhance the roster with an impact acquisition. It can’t be a good sign that management grossly underestimated the free-agent market. The Angels also have received an abundance of criticism for committing $50 million over five years to Matthews, who will try to build off his breakout season in 2006 at age 32. First base and third base remain question marks. When pitchers and catchers report for spring training today in anticipation of their first workout Thursday, that pitching staff might want to do some early weight lifting, just to feel what it would be like to carry the weight of the team on its shoulders. Angels personnel breaks down as follows: PITCHER Not only will one of the top rotations start things off, one of the best closers will be counted on to finish things. center_img The starting staff is first-rate with John Lackey, Jered Weaver, Ervin Santana, Kelvim Escobar and Joe Saunders, with Bartolo Colon possibly coming back by May, if not sooner. Even more upbeat news is that the outfield of Garret Anderson, Gary Matthews Jr. and Vladimir Guerrero is now considered by some as the best in the business. Nobody dared to make such a boast last season. last_img read more

first_imgFormer Everton defender Alan Stubbs believes the Toffees have the ability to break into the Premier League’s top four if they build the team around the club’s young stars.The likes of Ross Barkley, John Stones and Gerard Deulofeu, all below 23, have been in top form this season, while Romelu Lukaku has transformed into one of the country’s most lethal frontmen.The Belgium international become only the fifth player to reach 50 Premier League goals before the age of 23 earlier this term – joining Robbie Fowler, Michael Owen, Wayne Rooney and Cristiano Ronaldo – and he scored his seventh goal in six games to seal a 1-1 draw with Crystal Palace on Monday.Roberto Martinez’s men endured a disappointing campaign last season, missing out on a European spot as they finished in 11th in the top flight table.But, having manged to hold off interest from a number of clubs to keep their promising young starlets over the summer tranfer window, ex-centre-back Stubbs sees real signs for excitement for the future at Goodison Park.“The last window was a big statement to make for Everton, especially standing their ground over John Stones,” the former Toffees star, now manager of Scottish side Hibernian, told the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast.“If Everton are going to become a top four team they have to build a team around these young players.“You look at the Everton team and the players now, whenever they get the ball they look like they’ve got lots of options and are full of confidence.“Lukaku is unplayable at times up front and Ross Barkley, Gerard Deulofeu; they all want to take the ball into tight areas and are not afraid if someone is close to them.“Everton look very exciting at the moment.”last_img read more

first_img Liverpool news live: Klopp reveals when Minamino will play and issues injury update The average first-team salaries at every Premier League club in 2019 Most read in Premier League “I’m saying any boy or girl who has a decent level of physical ability and is the right size, you give that kid two years and you can turn out a goalkeeper who can play very, very comfortably at any level of English football.”One Premier League keeper has taken umbrage with Bob’s view, with Ben Foster of Watford reacting to the story on Twitter, and then joining Tuesday’s Jim White show to explain that there is a huge difference between a goalkeeper who is good, and one that is truly world class.“Bob, I’m afraid you’re wrong on this one mate,” Foster replied. “I do agree with a lot of what you say and you speak sense most of the time, but you are definitely wrong on this one.“There’s a huge difference between being a good goalkeeper and being a £70million goalkeeper. And that’s why you pay £70million for a goalkeeper. 💰 “If you pay over £5m for a ‘keeper you’ve been mugged off……You can take ANY 16-year-old and train them up to be a top level goalkeeper!” 🧤👀What do you make of Bob Mills’s theory on how clubs can create the best goalkeepers? 🤔— talkSPORT (@talkSPORT) September 3, 2018The world record fee for a goalkeeper was broken twice over the summer, first by Liverpool when they signed Alisson, the Brazil international, from Roma, then by Chelsea, who paid over £70million to bring Spain’s Kepa Arrizabalaga to Stamford Bridge.Clearly they were acting stupidly to Bob, who thinks the two clubs should have just gone out and trained up a teenager to fulfil the role of goalkeeper.He said: “If your team spends over £5million on a goalkeeper, tell them they are being mugged off.“Tell them they can go to any non-league club and find a 16- or 17-year-old who has the right physical attributes, they can spend about £200,000 training him, and they will have a goalkeeper who will stand in their goal for the next 10 years.

first_imgBY EMMET RUSHE: Relay for Life is an amazing event that has been held worldwide for the past few years.The Letterkenny event was founded in 2011 and was the largest first time Relay event held worldwide and the largest relay event in Europe in 2012. Cancer is an illness that has touched the lives of everyone. I would hazard a guess that there isn’t anyone reading this column who doesn’t know someone affected by cancer at some stage or another.The following information is taking from Macmillan Cancer Support; it is resource that I have found very informative on topics of health for before, during and after cancer treatment.Until recently cancer was seen as something you were either cured of or which killed you.This has now changed and for many of the two million people now living with cancer it has become a long term condition – but they are not necessarily living well. After treatment, learning to live with cancer is tough.Severe fatigue, depression, or reduced muscle strength can be immediate effects.People may not realise that heart problems and osteoporosis in later life are unfortunate consequences of cancer treatment.So it is incredible to think that just by taking the simple step of getting involved in physical activity cancer patients could possibly be helping themselves to overcome or even prevent these problems.What’s more, in some cases it can significantly reduce the risk of dying from the disease. It seems so simple, but this idea is still news to many healthcare professionals and certainly to people living with cancer.MotivationsCancer survivors are first and foremost people – and they have the same motivations as other people their age.For instance: • Spending time with the grandkids.• Spending time with friends or their other half.• Losing weight.• Feeling better and living longer.• Taking pride in still being able to get active.• On top of that they’re motivated to improve their quality of life because of the issues from having a chronic condition.Many of these motivations would be the same if they were suffering from diabetes or cardiac disease.They want to deal with these problems, but don’t necessarily realise that physical activity will help them with these conditions.• Loss of confidence.• Weight gain.• Fatigue/ tiredness.• Joint pain.• Improve well-being.• Improve recovery.• Help cope with stress of treatment and disease.• Get mind off disease.• Flexibility.• A friendly and helpful instructor.• Friendly/ welcoming/ fun environment.Lastly they have cancer-specific motivations for being active, for example• Managing their cancer – preventing reoccurrence.• Gain control over cancer and their life.• Spend time with people like them.• Women who’ve had surgery for breast cancer often want to improve the flexibilityaround their shoulder because the surgery causes it to be very tight.The biggest motivation under this heading, and perhaps overall is that physical activity can help stop the cancer from coming back for some types of cancer (particularly breast and prostate cancer).There is evidence to support the role of physical activity for the following stages of the cancer care pathway:During cancer treatment – physical activity improves, or prevents the decline of physical function without increasing fatigue.After cancer treatment – physical activity helps recover physical function.During and after cancer treatment – physical activity can reduce the risk of cancer recurrence and mortality for some cancers and can reduce the risk of developing other long term conditions.Advanced cancer – physical activity can help maintain independence and wellbeing.The type of activities that you can do is dependent on the type of cancer that you have and where you are in your stage of treatment/recovery, but physical activity has been shown to have great benefits for people of all stages of treatment.#TrainSmartIf you have any question on this article or for getting a tailored program to help you reach your goals, please contact me through the link below.* Emmet is the owner and operator of Rushe Personal Training and PerformanceEMMET RUSHE’S FITNESS COLUMN: RELAY FOR LIFE AND HOW ACTIVE LIVES CAN HELP YOU was last modified: May 31st, 2014 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:emmet rusheRelay for Lifelast_img read more
