Facts and curiosities of a League stopped by the coronavirus

first_imgOnly two other footballers also managed to reach 35 km / h. The Uruguayan Fede Valverde (35.06), demonstrating his great physical power that has earned him a transcendental role in Real Madrid, and the swift Portuguese winger from Levante Hernani (35).Of the data provided by LaLiga, there are also three footballers who, a priori, were not listed as the fastest: Leganés midfielder Oscar Rodríguez (34.95 km / h); Villarreal defender Pau Torres (34.93) and Atlético midfielder Marcos Llorente (34.9).Aerial duels wonAnother statistic, that of the company Opta, in which there is a clear dominator, is that of the player who has won the most aerial duels. Spanish striker Joselu Mato is living a great moment at Alavés, being key in the direct game that Asier Garitano proposes, and he has won 217 disputes. With 126 stops, the Levante goalkeeper is living a dream season and comfortably leads this statistic of which he has been the owner since the beginning of the campaign. Manolo Reina (Mallorca), on his return to the First Division at 34 years old, occupies the second position with 90 interventions.The fastestAdrià Pedrosa has speed in his last name, shared, although without family kinship, with the motorcycle pilot Dani, two-time world champion of 250 cubic centimeters -2004 and 2005- and 125 cc -2003-. The versatile left wing player, who can play as a winger, winger or winger, He is the footballer who achieved the highest top speed in the 27 days played with 35.11 kilometers per hour. The second in this classification is a regular like Raúl García, always a fighter in aerial balls and divided, with 151, very far from the player of the Babazorro team. The 27 Conferences that could be played in LaLiga Santander before the suspension due to the coronavirus pandemic left us with curious statistics, beyond the goals and assists, led yet another year by the Argentine Leo Messi, as Adrià Pedrosa (Espanyol) being the fastest player in the competition and striker Jaime Mata (Getafe) as the player with the most fouls.The data provided by LaLiga on its website also highlights the Spanish goalkeeper Aitor Fernández (Levante), who numerically justifies the voices that asked for his debut in a call from Spain as he is the goalkeeper who has made the most stops (126) so far in the course.ScorersDespite missing five of the 27 games played, Messi leads, with 19, the classification of top scorers with a wide difference of five goals over the French Karim Benzema, its only competitor in this facet. To lead this statistic, he would surpass Zarra, a legend of Athletic Bilbao and the League, as the footballer with the most ‘Pichichi’ Trophies; both with six so far. Dani Parejo (1617), Toni Kroos (1608) and Ever Banega (1576) complete the ‘top 5’. Three names that are not surprising since they are the main managers of generating the offensive game in their respective teams.Fouls committedIn this statistical section, it would be normal to be in first position with a defender or a defensive midfielder, but It is striker Jaime Mata who leads it. The Getafe footballer has committed 67 offenses in LaLiga Santander, a fact that reflects the aggressive play style of coach José Bordalás. The attackers are the first to put pressure on the opponent and this, together with the large number of disputes in the air game in each game in which he has to fight, make Mata the most fouled player. In second position is, with eight, a Portuguese Cristian ‘Portu’ who has found in Real Sociedad an environment to continue growing after good seasons at Girona. Luis Suárez (Barcelona), Rodrigo (Valencia) and Roberto Torres (Osasuna) complete the ‘top 5′ with seven goal passes.RecoveriesThe Brazilian Carlos Henrique Casemiro has become a life insurance and fixed in the center of the field of Real Madrid for years. He is the one who destroys so that others can invent, and he does that work perfectly. So much so that the ’14’ of the white team leads the statistics of the most ball recoveries, with 53.center_img A Zarra whose name gives the award to the top national scorer. An award that has three equal Spanish as both Gerard Moreno (Villarreal), Lucas Pérez (Alavés) and Roger Martí (Levante) have managed to see the door eleven times.AssistsThe other great statistics of football is also led by Messi. The Barcelona footballer has distributed 12 assists so far this year, which makes him have participated directly in 31 goals in the 22 games he has played. A figure that once again reflects his level and the importance in the game of his own. A very tight classification in which closely follow the Spaniards Unai Bustinza (Leganés) and Kiko Olivas (Valladolid) and his compatriot Fernando (Seville), with 48 steals.PassesA statistic that perfectly reflects the style of play and who has the handle of each team. Two Barcelona footballers lead this section. Sergio Busquets has completed 1871 passes, while teammate Gerard Piqué is second with 1857. The Cameroonian Zambo Anguissa stands out among the first five. The midfielder arrived in summer at Villarreal on loan from Fulham, recently relegated to the English second division, as a defensive player, so fans of the classic club of the islands must be incredulous before the 60 dribbles he has done; ahead of players like Mikel Oyarzabal, Martin Odegaard or Lucas Ocampos.StopsWith the owner of the goal of the Spanish National Team in question, Aitor Fernández was running as one of the great candidates to be in Luis Enrique’s first call, after his convulsive return to the national bench, which should have occurred last Friday, but the coronavirus prevented it. DribblesAnother offensive statistic that Messi leads. And with a wide difference. The Argentinean has made 118 dribbles, well ahead of the second who is the Frenchman Nabil Fekir (Betis), which is demonstrating the great quality that was already evident in the French League.last_img read more

Russell’s violation hearing continues – West Indies all-rounder’s lawyer remains confident

first_imgLead counsel Patrick Foster continued his cross examination of Nadia Vassell, Jamaica Anti-Doping Commission (JADCO) whereabouts officer and director of technical services, during yesterday’s hearing into the whereabouts clause violation of Jamaica and West Indies all-rounder AndrÈ Russell at the Jamaica Conference Centre. Foster focused his arguments on procedural breaches by pointing to miscommunication and questionable methods of communication used by JADCO in contacting Russell and his agent, Will Quinn, for extension deadlines, especially, from the period July 20 to 24th (2015), in regards to the allegations against the West Indies cricketer. “I finished the cross-examination of Ms Nadia Vassell on the filing failures allegations. I just explored the procedures adopted by JADCO in recording the filing failures, and I did that in background with the rules just to make the panel understand what the process is and if there was compliance with the rules,” he told The Gleaner. “That is the critical issue, whether there was a filing failure and whether JADCO reached that conclusion in the appropriate way in compliance with the rules, particularly in relation to the July to September quarter where issues arise as to whether they have the right to make two filing failures or one,” he added. When the hearing resumes on October 6, Foster will continue his cross examination of JADCO witnesses Carey Brown, the executive director of the organisation, and Tahje Smith. Following his questioning of those two witnesses, Russell’s team will then open its case, and Russell is expected to give evidence. “The next witnesses to be called are Mr Carey Brown and Mr Tajae Smith on behalf of JADCO. But we are moving on with the case after those two witnesses are finished, and we will open our case and Mr Russell will give evidence. We are looking forward to giving evidence and have the matter closed and move on. But it (case) is still unfolding, and I will leave that ’til the end,” he said. At the last hearing, Vassell told Foster that a reminder was first sent to Russell through a letter on July 6, 2015. Russell was given an extension to file his whereabouts by July 13, 2015 and on July 20, he (Vassell) sent another email to the cricketer asking him to file his whereabouts by July 24.last_img read more

SUPER DONEGAL KNOCK TYRONE OFF THEIR PERCH TO WIN IN CLONES

first_imgDESPITE some dreadful Tyrone tactics and poor refereeing decisions, a gritty Donegal today knocked Tyrone off their perch – and booked a place in Ulster SFC Final against Derry.In an action packed game at Clones, Donegal’s Colm McFadden – arguably playing the best football of his career – was the Tir Chonaill man who took a superb goal in the second half to set up the win.And although Tyrone equalised with just seconds of normal time left, the brilliant Dermot Molloy sealed the win with a fantastic goal in injury time – winning 2-06 to 0-9! There were wild celebrations among the Donegal players and fans among the 20,000 fans at Clones.All across the park Donegal were men against boys, Neil McGee and Karl Lacey were superb.And Jim McGuinness may have been criticised for his tactics, but his tactics worked superbly today.“I’m delighted for all the players but we have to focus now on the final,” he said calmly afterwards. Donegal now play Derry in the Ulster Final in three weeks time.In the 53rd minute Donegal were denied a clear penalty when the referee penalised McFadden for over-carrying when he was clearly rugby-tackled from behind.But just two minutes later McFadden scored a superb goal after brilliant work by Karl Lacey.Kevin Hughes was sent off in the 61st minute for punching a Donegal player and the referee had no choice but to send off the Tyrone player.It was more than deserved – Tyrone had been commiting foul after foul, pulling jerseys and hitting Donegal players high. For all their dominance in the first half, Tyrone led by just two points 0-6 to 0-4.Veteran Owen Mulligan opened the scoring for Tyrone but Mickey Harte’s side were reduced to taking long shots at goal as Donegal put men behind the ball.By the 11th minute Tyrone were three points up as Philip Joran hit over from 40 yards.A couple of minutes later and it was 0-4 to no score as Brian Dooher pointed from all of 35 yards. It took 17-year-old Patrick McBrearty to get Donegal on the scoresheet when he hit a superb point from a tight angle against the breeze – and 30 yards out – in the 16th minute.As Donegal played defence, Tyrone hit wide after wide.However they hit two more points from Cavanagh and O’Neill.With Donegal five points adrift, it was looking bad for the Donegal lads.But with three minutes left to the break Donegal began something of a fightback. McBrearty won the ball, passed to Kevin Rafferty who hit a superb point from all of 35 yards.When McFadden scored a point from a free just after the deficit is reduced to just three points – 0-6 to 0-3.Tyrone moved forward but after beating back a Stephen O’Neill effort on goal, Donegal swept forward and Kevin Cassidy pointed to leave it 0-6 to 0-4 at half time.And Donegal came roaring back in the second half – bagging two goals…to finally knock Tyrone off their perch.MORE REACTION LATER TONIGHTSUPER DONEGAL KNOCK TYRONE OFF THEIR PERCH TO WIN IN CLONES was last modified: June 26th, 2011 by gregShare 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:donegalTyroneUlster SFC semi-finallast_img read more

STUDY OF LETTERKENNY AIR SHOWS SMOKY COAL BAN BADLY NEEDED

first_imgA study of the air in Letterkenny by the Environmental Protection Agency and the Health Service Executive has shown alarming results.The study, undertaken over the past two years, shows unacceptable levels of dust particles known as PM10.Many of these particles are connected with the burning of coal. The results of the study has partially led to a ban on the burning, marketing, sale and distribution of “smoky coal” which will be introduced to Letterkenny and its environs from May 1st 2013.The purpose of this ban is to deliver cleaner air and to reduce air pollution in the larger towns and cities in Ireland. This has been done in many other towns and cities since 1990 when the ban was first introduced to Dublin.From 1st May, Coal Retailers and Coal Merchants will not be permitted to market, sell or distribute bituminous (smoky) coal to householders in Letterkenny and the wider environs. In addition to this, householders within Letterkenny and the wider environs will no longer be allowed to burn bituminous (smoky) coal from 1st May. A map of the ban area can be found at www.donegalcoco.ie.The sole purpose of the “Smoky Coal” ban is to deliver cleaner air to the Letterkenny area. The EPA, in conjunction with the HSE, has monitored the air quality in Letterkenny for the past 2 years and the results show an unacceptable number of exceedences of the air quality limits for PM10 which are very fine particles of dust or particulate matter (less than one-hundredth of a millimetre in size).In smaller urban centres such as Letterkenny, the main source of PM10 is the emissions resulting from the burning of smoky solid fuels.PM10 is harmful to health owing to its ability to penetrate into the lungs and is associated with cardiopulmonary and respiratory disorders. Put simply, less PM10 means better health and improved air quality.The “Smoky Coal” Ban has been in place in Dublin for the past 23 years and has had a dramatic impact on the air quality in the city.Research carried out by Professor Luke Clancy in 2002 has indicated that the smoky coal ban introduced in Dublin in 1990 resulted in major health benefits with up to 350 fewer deaths annually in the city. The Asthma Society has stated “that Ireland has the 4th highest prevalence of asthma worldwide with 470,000 people in Ireland suffering from Asthma. The research published in The Lancet also showed that poor air quality is directly linked to increased risk of death from respiratory and cardiovascular disease.”The Asthma Society state that “people who suffer from respiratory conditions, such as asthma, can be badly affected by exposure to harmful particles in the air which result from pollutants, including the burning of smoky coal.”The alternatives to burning “Smoky Coal” is to use Smokeless Fuels including,• Smokeless Coal – bags will be clearly labelled “Smokeless Fuel”, • Wood – kindling, firewood logs, firestarter logs• Turf – loose turf and baled briquettes.The new regulation will be enforced by Donegal County Council after an awareness raising campaign. Inspections will be carried out on retailers, coal merchants and coal delivery lorries. Inspections will also be carried out “out of hours” when coal deliveries are most frequent.Donegal County Council encourages members of the public to report instances of the flouting of the law, which will result in enforcement action being taken by Donegal County Council.STUDY OF LETTERKENNY AIR SHOWS SMOKY COAL BAN BADLY NEEDED was last modified: April 22nd, 2013 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:letterkennysmoky coal banlast_img read more

TABLE-TOPPERS HARPS MAKE LONG TRIP TO IN-FORM COBH RAMBLERS

first_imgTwo of the in-form sides in the First Division go head to head at St. Colman’s Park on Saturday evening, as top of the table Finn Harps look to extend their unbeaten start to the league campaign to eleven games.Only Wexford Youths have a better record in their last six games than these two sides who meet for the second time this season on Saturday evening.And it is a vastly improved Cobh Ramblers side that Harps will face at the weekend from the one they met at Finn Park in March. In the build-up to that match, Martin Cambridge had left his post as Manager of the Ramblers and Anthony Wolfe was in care-taker charge as Harps ran out 2-0 winners with Wilfried Tagbo and Kevin McHugh on the scoresheet for the home side.Since then though, Stephen Henderson – who led Ramblers to the First Division title in 2007 – has returned to the club and brought an upturn in fortunes. In his six league games back in charge at St. Colman’s Park, Henderson has watched his side lose just once – that coming last weekend when they fell to a 1-0 defeat at Ferrycarrig Park against Wexford Youths.“Cobh is always a hugely difficult place to go,” said Harps boss Ollie Horgan ahead of his sides 900km round trip on Saturday.“Now with Stephen Henderson taking over it will be even tougher,” he said. “They have serious quality in Shane O’Connor, Kevin Mulcahy and Rob Waters added to very talented young players in Ryan Goldsmith, Stephen Kenny and Darren Murphy to mention just a few,” said Horgan. Harps will go into the game with their first sign of an injury crisis in this campaign. Packie Mailey has yet to kick a ball in anger this season and Horgan said that the big defender is still a number of weeks away from forcing himself into the squad. Brian McGrory, who has missed the recent games against Cabinteely and Waterford, remains sidelined.More worryingly, Keith Cowan, who had played every minute of every game so far this season, limped off with a torn hamstring in the 65th minute of last weeks victory over Waterford United meaning he will be on the sidelines for the foreseeable future.Harps stretched their unbeaten start to the campaign last weekend with a nervy 3-2 victory over Waterford United at Finn Park. Harps were 2-0 up within six minutes through Michael Funston and Wilfried Tagbo and should have been further ahead before Shaun Corcoran pulled one back before the half-hour. From there until Ross Fitzpatrick equalised in the 73rd minute, Waterford were the better side. However, Ruairi Keating slotted home after his initial shot hit the post with just two minutes to go to give Harps the points and keep up their 100% home record in 2015.“We started the game very well on Friday and could have been three up relatively early on,” said Horgan as he looked back on the game.“Waterford scored what was then a little against the run of play which changed the game. From there on Waterford were excellent and put in a performance that Tommy Griffin would be very proud of. They deservedly equalised and had chances to win the game but ran out of luck at the end,” he said. Horgan shrugged off suggestions that his team thought the hard work was done after the two early goals.“I don’t think anyone thought it was going to be easy,” he said. “It was the manner in which Waterford kept trying to play that got them back into the game with great character. I suppose we showed a little bit of character ourselves at the end also but it was harsh on Waterford.”TEAM NEWSSuspended: None.Doubtful: None.Injured: Packie Mailey, Brian McGroary, Keith Cowan.FORM GUIDE (last six league games)Finn Harps: D-W-W-W-D-D (12 pts)Cobh Ramblers: W-D-W-D-W-L (11 pts) RECORD AGAINST COBH RAMBLERS (All competitions)Friday’s game will be the 63rd meeting of the two clubs, and the 33rd to be played at St. Colman’s Park.Total Games: 62 (32 at St. Colman’s Park)Harps Wins: 24 (10 at St. Colman’s Park)Cobh Wins: 20 (15 at St. Colman’s Park)Draws: 18 (7 at St. Colman’s Park)Harps Goals: 82 (37 at St. Colman’s Park)Cobh Goals: 67 (43 at St. Colman’s Park)LAST 10 GAMES v COBH RAMBLERS04-May-13 Cobh Ramblers 2-2 Finn Harps (First Division)05-Jul-13 Finn Harps 2-2 Cobh Ramblers (First Division)23-Aug-13 Finn Harps 1-1 Cobh Ramblers (FAI Cup)26-Aug-13 Cobh Ramblers 0-4 Finn Harps (FAI Cup)31-Aug-13 Cobh Ramblers 3-2 Finn Harps (First Division)21-Mar-14 Finn Harps 5-0 Cobh Ramblers (First Division)10-May-14 Cobh Ramblers 0-2 Finn Harps (First Division)11-Jul-14 Finn Harps 0-0 Cobh Ramblers (First Division)06-Sep-14 Cobh Ramblers 1-0 Finn Harps (First Division)27-Mar-15 Finn Harps 2-0 Cobh Ramblers (First DivisionTABLE-TOPPERS HARPS MAKE LONG TRIP TO IN-FORM COBH RAMBLERS was last modified: May 14th, 2015 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:Cobh Ramblersfinn harpslast_img read more
