And we sold this man smh.”Another said: “Trippier had one bad season like a lot of players do. People gave him s***! Trippier was a good player and would still be better then aurier and KWP.”A third tweeted: “We’re playing a centre-back, who’s not even that good at centre-back, at right-back. You, as they say, love to see it.”And a final fan fumed: “Trippier pocketing Ronaldo whilst we have to witness Sanchez get spun round like a yo-yo at every given opportunity.”3 Ex-Spurs man Trippier managed to keep Cristiano Ronaldo off the scoresheet in a Champions League matchCredit: AFP or Licensors3 Trippier, left, was acting like a winger against Juventus while Davinson Sanchez, right, played a more reserved roleCredit: Opta Meanwhile, we’re playing a centre-back, who’s not even that good at centre-back, at right-back.

first_imgIn what was an end-to-end affair despite dour Eden Park conditions, a try-happy Blues outfit ran in eight five-pointers to four and appeared likely to cut through a meek Cheetahs defensive line at every opportunity.All Blacks hopeful Rieko Ioane ran riot, scoring two tries and setting up another, while midfielder George Moala did his Test prospects no harm in a classy display.Loose forward Steven Luatua also impressed as an all-action blindside.Despite the bonus-point win, the Blues remain pinned to the bottom of the New Zealand conference, but puts plenty of pressure on the fourth-placed Highlanders ahead of their clash with the Bulls in Pretoria.It also increases the Blues’ chances of sneaking in to the final top eight, as they jet off to Cape Town for a clash with the Stormers.Despite their reputation for running rugby, the Cheetahs could only find joy through the set piece and nabbed three of their four tries via mauls.”We struggled a little bit with their driving maul, but outside of that we’re relatively happy,” Blues captain James Parsons said.”That’s probably the only area of concern – we’ll enjoy the small wins (and) celebrate tonight, but we’re on the early flight tomorrow.”The two sides traded tries in the opening 20 minutes, as Ioane responded to Francois Venter and Scott Scrafton to Torsten van Jaarsveld.Akira Ioane then broke a brittle Cheetahs left-edge defence to stroll over and put his side in front in the 23rd minute, before lock Patrick Tuipulotu swirled out of two tackles to motor home 10 minutes later.The Blues were forced to switch first-fives after the break with Piers Francis limping off for Ihaia West, but kept their foot on the accelerator.Further tries to Luatua, halfback Augustine Pulu and Rieko Ioane put the result to bed, before a breakaway Melani Nanai score was sandwiched by two mauling efforts from replacement Cheetahs rake Elandre Huggett.”We knew we had to fire up, not do what we did against the Waratahs (concede late points), score first and make sure we put scoreboard pressure back on,” Parsons said.”I thought we did that quite well, especially exiting our own half.”last_img read more

first_imgThey were able to inaugurate the Darder, spur, and Budimir marker, knocked out by Cabrera. Also Calleri, in a goal saved by Reina, like Valjent before De Tomás hit the net a death pass from the ‘10’ parakeet. The attacks were as aggressive as the defenses were indolent, as if they were handling a time bomb to explode.But the ‘summum’ of the nerves came with the penalty that Mateu Lahoz pointed out about Budimir but that the VAR, in charge of Martínez Munuera, annulled because before the ball had left the bottom line. Cornellà celebrated it almost as a rehearsal for his own goal.And it would come around the game time, in a stolen ball on the left by Dídac, who focused on Darder serving as a tray the head of the relentless Thomas, who had the 2-0 (which would have matched the particular scoring goal) on a double occasion with Darder who broke up Reina.He managed with some ease the advantage of Espanyol against a Mallorca that lost control with the change of the expert Salva Sevilla, although he came to hang around the tie in Budimir’s head. The first of many endings awaiting. Espanyol announces that it was preferable to spend the money in the winter market to have to do it in Second. 20 million Chen Yansheng invested in Raúl de Tomás, the most expensive signing in its history. And time is giving the right to the parakeet owner, while taking it away from romantic football. There is no match in which the forward does not score, and there are already five between LaLiga and the Copa del Rey. And today was not worth three points, but six, against a Mallorca that continues to mark the permanence but which equals points.Tons of tranquilizers would have been distributed in Cornellà-El Prat (in the stands and even on the lawn) in the first section of the meeting had a pharmacy been installed in the stadium. The starter was astonishing, as if instead of a duel for the permanence a match was won that won the one that scored the first goal as soon as possible.last_img read more

first_imgIn seven months of competition, Thibaut Courtois has traveled through all moods. Of the unsafety at the beginning of the season fueled by statistics (nine goals conceded in the first five games) and by the shadow of Keylor Navas, goalkeeper of the three Champions followed by PSG, he went to the frustration to feel pointed after the win of the PSG (3-0) and whistled in the Bernabéu against Bruges (he conceded two goals and stayed in the locker room at rest for some stomach discomfort). After, reborn with merit stops and zero goals, acting as a hero against Valencia (he headed in the discount a corner that opened the way for a draw to one of Benzema) and in the Supercopa of Spain (fantastic during the final against Atleti, Thomas was penalized in the batch and gave the title to Madrid). And when I was in full physical, psychological and with an outstanding service sheet, against Levante doubts returned in Morales’ goal, where he was inexplicably seen to shrug his arms.For Courtois, the turning point of his season came on October 22 in Istanbul, when Madrid won the Galatasaray (0-1). Before that meeting, he felt on the target after the wreck of Madrid in Mallorca (1-0), in that game against Bruges where he did not play the second half for an indisposition (2-2) and in the debacle of Paris ( 3-0). In addition, in the other games he did not offer that image of ‘miracle goalkeeper’ so of Real Madrid. But in Ali Sami Yen, Courtois fell apart. “Against Bruges we got a point that was key to classify us. But against Galatasaray I got a‘ click. ‘Suddenly I had that feeling that no one surpassed me. Then Roberto Martínez, the coach, told me: ‘There I have seen the Thibaut of the World Cup again,” said the Real Madrid goalkeeper in statements at Proximus Sport. That night in Turkey stopped all the auction shots that came to him and sent a message outside the field: “I am the goalkeeper that I am and I never doubted myself. I know where I am and I am only interested in constructive criticism.” After the match in Turkey, Courtois only conceded 10 goals in 19 games (0.5) and registered eleven ‘goals to zero’. Contrast with the 12 goals in nine clashes that precede the appointment against Galatasaray (1,3) and only twice unbeaten. The Belgian was one of the pillars of that streak of 21 games without losing that Madrid had. “The important thing for me is not to show doubts; I will not shake my defense either, ”he said. Some doubts that seem to have returned in the last two games, where those of Zidane have lost five points (2-2 against Celta and defeat 1-0 against Levante), at the least opportune moment of the season.
