Bale: your most negotiating side

first_imgBale’s image in Wales is very different from that of Real Madrid, closer to apathy and coldness than commitment. In each FIFA break, a player has been seen to be much more involved with his team than with the white club. That raised suspicion at the Bernabéu and also controversy. His last appearance with the Welsh team lit a wick that has not been extinguished. After qualifying to play the final phase of the Eurocup, he jumped with happiness with a banner that put “Wales. Golf. Madrid. In that order” (Wales. Golf. Madrid. In that order “), something that unnerved white fans. The Bernabéu greeted him with a loud whistle when jumping onto the field in the next game, on November 23, in the match that Madrid beat Real Sociedad (3-1). His relationship with the Bernabéu stands has been a roller coaster and his image has been changing its price until reaching the red numbers. Now, he is back on the exit ramp … Nothing to do with the aura that Bale has in his country. Leader of his team, involved in the field and committed to the offices to help his colleagues. If the Real Madrid dressing room baptized Gareth Bale as The Golfer (The Golfer) For his unbridled passion for the sport, in Wales he might well be known as The Negotiator. Because the Real Madrid player is in charge, along with Chris Gunter, of negotiate with the Welsh Federation the bonuses players receive for each victory.Giggs’ men will be at the Eurocup which, due to the coronavirus crisis, will be held next year and, in principle, the premiums negotiated by the madridista will remain, who in his team is a committed leader. With the team and with his teammates. This was revealed by Gunter himself, in statements reproduced by The Sun: “It all started with me, Ashley Williams, Bale and Ramsey. We needed to have a conversation about this. Williams was sitting, watching the world go by, relaxed, without getting involved. Ramsey the same. So we were Bale and I who were fighting and discussing every little point. “Bale showed his most ‘combative’ side in order to scratch off the biggest prize for the Welsh dressing room: “Members of the Welsh federation are not difficult to deal with, but Bale and I will fight for the boys if there is anything that needs to be resolved. To be fair to Bale, he is fighting for an extra bonus for each team victory, but he doesn’t need any more money to win. He needs to get more credit. But he is still fighting for the rest of us, to try to win a decent amount of money in this game. ”last_img read more

Any yellow fan would know how to tell the team that Álvaro Cervera would line up in the event that they had not been penalized or injured, which unfortunately has been a constant during the 31 days that have been disputed. This team matches the most used players, however, as incredible as it seems these eleven players have only met on the field in two games. Curiously both against Zaragoza. Sanctions and especially the lesions have ravaged the Cervera’s team, which has had to supply the numerous losses with other players. Of the eleven, only Iza and Álex have been present in the 31 league games, followed by Cifuentes (at 30) and Espino (29). As of the Uruguayan, the remaining seven have lost at least five games. José Mari is the one who has had the most absences. Almost two months were lost due to a clavicular acromio dislocation in his left shoulder, produced against Fuenlabrada, which caused him to undergo operating room.Nonetheless it the broad template that has Álvaro Cervera has allowed the yellow club stay on top from the table. All players have had their opportunities. Iván Alejo, Edu Ramos and Marcos Mauro are the ones who have entered Álvaro Cervera’s line-ups the most times, out of the eleven most used players.

Silva is left without tribute

(they compare him to Colin Bell)Since City hasn’t had many cracks that have stayed there that long and accomplished so many things at once.

first_imgAfter representing three clubs in 15 years in the nation’s Women’s League football, Rochelle ‘Chunky’ Bryan has fallen in love with Barbican FC. She now has no intention of parting ways with the St Andrew-based club.In her second season at Barbican, Bryan was awarded the Most Valuable Player (MVP) for the just concluded 2015 season. She won the MVP trophy and $25,000 cash incentive at the recent Sherwin- Williams/JFF awards ceremony.Bryan missed the function due to illness, but was naturally happy on hearing the good news. She was a key member of the team which won the league and knockout double.

Oral Tracey: Protect Taylor from ‘burn out’

first_imgBoys and Girls’ Champs 2016 is now done and dusted. Once again, it showcased brilliance as Jamaica continues to lead the world in the systemic production of young track-and-field talent. With two early individual records in the 200 and the 400 metres, along with an overall four gold medals, Christopher Taylor of Calabar High was undoubtedly the most dominant athlete on show. The precocious 16-year-old talent must be looked at beyond the scope of setting Champs records and lifting the Mortimer Geddes Trophy for Calabar. Taylor’s supreme talent is a rare gift to be nurtured and showcased by Jamaica for the wider world. Many observers, myself included, are seriously concerned for the future of Taylor in term of realising his potential as a genuine world beater. The World Youth champion over 400 metres is in his fourth year at Calabar High, where he has been nothing but a fearless and aggressive competitor and a champion. He competed in 10 races at Champs 2016 and was flat out in at least eight of those runs. Outside of the physical rigours of doing so much work at such a young age with such a frail physical structure, the possibility of physical, mental, and psychological burnout of this young gem is a clear and present danger. In terms of making the successful transition to the senior level, it is a potentially lethal combination to be as talented as Taylor at such and early age and to attend a Champs-chasing school like Calabar. Rising to the pinnacle of personal performances and team achievements, 14- and 15-year-old provides for a lofty emotional ride for any young athlete. The satisfaction of excelling repeatedly at Champs from such a very early age could be debilitating for the development and transition process of a special young athlete like Taylor. The story has been told of a former Champs star who instructively also attended Calabar and was competing at a World Junior Championships. When he was approached by his national coach with words of motivation and encouragement before the start of his event, the youngster’s response was: “Coach, it’s not Champs, but I will try my best.” The scary history is there for all to see. None of our current senior international male world beaters were outstanding Champs stars at Class Three and represented Champs-winning teams. The athletes who make the transition are generally not from the top Champs schools and generally were not Class Three standouts. Usain Bolt never won at Class Three and competed for William Knibb; Asafa Powell never won at Champs, he went to Charlemont High; Yohan Blake was a big star at Champs for St Jago, but not at Class Three. As great as Taylor is as an athlete, and as a ruthless as he is as a competitor, he is still human and it would a be a tragedy of immense proportion if this youngster – who is already the best in the entire world at his age group – does not make the successful transition to the senior ranks. He is the most special athlete to emerge from the Jamaican production line since Bolt and while the dynamics are different, we must remember that there were moments along the way when we almost lost Bolt. Just as was done for Bolt, Taylor should be protected from ‘burn out”. One more year in school maximum to facilitate the completion of his physical development, then the deliberate and meticulous process should begin of moulding Taylor into the international star he is destined to be.last_img read more

Thompson foresees ‘bright future’ for Reggae Boyz

first_imgRYAN THOMPSON foresees a ‘bright future’ for the Reggae Boyz following recent performances at the CONCACAF Gold Cup. The Jamaicans made history by becoming the first Caribbean team to play in the final and registered another landmark on their way there, when they defeated the United States in the semi-final. Prior to the 2-1 win at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta, no Jamaican football team had ever beaten the United States in America. In the final, the team lost 3-1 against Mexico. However, Thompson focused on the positives. “It’s just a building process for the future. It’s very bright for Jamaica’s football,” he said. On the way to the final, the Boyz won their group with seven of maximum nine points, then beat Haiti 1-0 in the quarter-final before advancing to the US game, then the final. After that defeat, their only one at the tournament, he said: “We’re happy with our performance and that’s all we can ask for. Everyone went out there, played to the best of their abilities. Everyone went out there and pretty much wore their hearts on their sleeves out there. We could not have asked for anything more than that.” The tournament itself represented a breakthrough for Thompson, who made the most of half a chance. The 30-year-old goalkeeper grasped the number-one position after starting out as third string. The former Ardenne High School Manning Cup representative got his chance in Jamaica’s last group game against El Salvador in Canada, when Dwayne Miller got injured early and his back-up, AndrÈ Blake, was short on match practice. “It started from last year when I got invited to camp, and ever since, Sch‰fer (Winfried) rang me, I’m there. I made certain that I’m going to be a face that he never forgets. I work hard every single day, I compete every single day. I haven’t missed a camp. I haven’t missed a single trip ever since coach Sch‰fer invited me and I’m thankful for that,” Thompson remarked. “He saw something in me as a player and I know I have a lot to give to the team and I want to build on these things going forward. Hopefully, Jamaica, and not just Jamaica, but the world, will recognise that we have quality players out there and give us the respect that we truly deserve. “I’m just happy with my performance and what I was able to do for my country. Every game, I went out there I gave of my best. I wore my heart on my sleeve out there,” he continued. The goalie made a blunder that caused the goal in the US match and central defender Michael Hector made two that led to goals in the final. However, Thompson said the team’s reaction to such situations reflects a spirit among the group that fosters growth. “It’s amazing. Everybody’s going to make mistakes. This is the beauty about this team, we don’t single out anybody, when one person makes a mistake, everybody makes a mistake, and it’s just amazing to be a part of a group like this, nobody is going to single you out and this is just positive going forward. It’s just pure positives going forward and again, I’m sure Jamaica’s football is going to be very, very bright,” Thompson emphasised. “It’s all a part of the game. You’re gonna make mistakes and stuff happens,” he added. “But I’m proud of my team. I’m proud of everybody. Nobody expected us to be here and we played in the final against Mexico, one of the best teams in the world.”last_img read more
