01/09/2020 – 21:58 | 22:43 – 9/01/20 Those of Simeone trace a match (2-3) that had deservedly lostThe culé team disappears in the final stretch of an exciting matchThe goals of Morata and Correa in the end cite the rojiblancos with Madrid Instead of where women are degraded by the mere fact of being women and thousands of kilometers away from the fans of both teams, the semi-final of the Spanish Super Cup between Barcelona and Atlético de Madrid reeked of one more match among all those who play for a title in which you risk more than you earn. However, what happened in Jeddah was an ode to the inexplicable from which the rojiblancos won, with a 2-3 that takes them to the final against Real Madrid.Everything was based on the survival instinct. The one that the Athletic one possesses in enormous quantities and the one that the Barcelona loses between the hands. Only in this way is it understood that it is the mattresses and not the culés who are at the end of Sunday. Atletico lacked everything for 80 minutes, but he did it dodging death sentences. Some were stopped by Oblak and others stopped by the VAR. Later, the faint of Barça took advantage of the Simeone squad with an unusual faith and a decisive final arreón, led by Vitolo’s fresh legs.In spite of everything, the party must leave a very negative reading for those of Simeone. He was totally dominated by Barcelona, with and without the ball. Locked up in his field, he had to endure the precise circulation of rival ball and the physical phenomenon that is an Arturo Vidal that alone is worth as an army. The center of the rojiblanco field was deactivated, with Thomas, Saúl and Héctor Herrera collected errors at full hands and an imperial Busquets in the management of the soccer culé and also in the recovery after loss. Messi was soon awake, testing from the front on a couple of occasions, without danger. Savic and Felipe, co-managed, were able to draw two services of Griezmann rights to the head of Luis Suárez in the last breath. The clearest was for the Frenchman, who relied too much on the unproven humanity of Oblak. The Slovenian, in hand to hand, took out his arm and denied his ex-partner as much as the entire stadium took the goal for granted. On the athletic side, a foul shot by Héctor Herrera and many, many doubts. Photo: EFE To try to scare them, the ‘Cholo’ put Koke by the Mexican, and in the first surprise of the night, the change was successful at 18 seconds: those that took the ‘6’ to take advantage of Correa’s filtered pass to beat to Net. The joy did not last long for Atlético, who in five minutes suffered the peck of Messi, in a right that took place after a rejection and with the passivity of Thomas. The result better reflected what was seen on the grass, and the feelings also endorsed it: Barcelona played and played as it had done until then … but Oblak had other plans. The goalkeeper took a blow to Messi and a new Vaseline to Griezmann. He could not do anything when the Argentine, with Saul covering him with his eyes, broke the hip of the ‘8’ and put it to keep. This time it was the VAR who entered to whistle a previous hand. But even Oblak has limits. With Lodi to see them coming, Suarez came alone on the second stick to shoot with his head. The elsoveno took it as he could, but in the clearance he could not correct the slowness of Felipe, who could only see how Griezmann also traced with the head. Already with the result in favor, Barcelona maniató and mistreated Atlético. But without killing him. Oblak did another miracle before the shot of Luis Suarez, Messi did not adjust well to the long stick, the VAR annulled (well) a goal from Piqué out of Vidal’s game … and, suddenly, something creaked. Fainting of BarcelonaIt didn’t ring, it wasn’t noticeable until the first loss came. Barcelona dissolved like a sugar bowl in a matter of seconds, from one moment to another. The transformation coincided with the entry into the Vitolo field, which provided Atlético with speed and poison in the final meters. The rojiblancos smelled the blood and decided to really push, and the revolution began. It was the Canary who, after a loss of Griezmann, stood alone before Neto and took the penalty. Morata did not forgive and, faced with the disbelief of everyone, marked the tie. It was ten minutes to go and the best was yet to come. After an incomprehensible action of the VAR when not indicating hand of Piqué within the area, the Athletic one continued pressing. Thus came a new loss in which Morata left Correa in his hand in front of Neto. The Argentine, true to his style, defined badly, fatally, but the goalkeeper’s rejection went straight to the net. Barça only had a spontaneous reaction, a steamer based on balls to the pot. A mirage. Marcos Llorente was about to make the 2-4 with a slalom to the goal with a shot that Neto cleared with trouble. Correa’s goal had been final. To end a Barcelona with feet of clay. To send an Atletico to the final of the Super Cup that has already exhausted all the topics on resistance. Data sheet:Barcelona: Neto, Sergi Roberto, Umtiti, Piqué, Jordi Alba, Busquets (Rakitic 85 ‘), Vidal, De Jong (Ansu Fati 89’), Luis Suárez, Griezmann and Messi.Atlético de Madrid: Oblak, Trippier, Felipe, Savic, Lodi (Vitolo 67 ‘), Héctor Herrera (Koke 46’ (Marcos Llorente 72 ‘)), Thomas, Saúl, Correa, Joao Felix and Morata.Goals: 0-1 Koke (min 46), 1-1 Messi (min 51), 2-1 Griezmann (min 62), 2-2 Morata (min 81), 2-3 Correa (min 86).Referee: González González, from the Castilian school in La Mancha. He piled yellow card to Piqué, Luis Suárez, Vidal, Neto, Marcos Llorente, Felipe, Savic and Thomas. Stadium: King Abdullah Sports City.
Anthony Patrick is still at Waterhouse despite being relieved as head coach of the struggling Premier League team. He remains at the club as assistant coach and is also in charge of the youth programme. Patrick returned to Waterhouse as interim coach of the Red Stripe Premier League outfit following the resignation of Calvert Fitzgerald, who started the season in charge. Poor results led to Fitzgerald stepping aside. Patrick took over. However, the team continued to struggle. It was rumoured that Paul Young would have taken over some two months ago, but the deal was finalised last week and Young took charge on Friday. When contacted yesterday, Patrick explained his role at the club. “I was playing an interim role until Paul Young came in. Now he is at the club, so I am his assistant and also in charge of the youth programme,” Patrick told The Gleaner. Young, who also had a stint at Waterhouse in 2009, a 2-2 draw against Tivoli Gardens last Sunday at Waterhouse Stadium. Although Waterhouse are at the foot of the table, on 14 points from 17 games, Patrick remains hopeful they will start winning soon. “It will take self-discipline from players. He (Young) is stressing on that, as it is important in moving forward. “We are trying to get the players to concentrate for the entire game. We have to be hopeful that the team can start winning. With five games remaining in the second round, the aim is to win those games then enter the third and final preliminary round in an improved position and take it from there. “We still have a chance of making the last four for the championship play-off,” Patrick said. Waterhouse next play Cavalier SC at Stadium East this Sunday, starting at 5 p.m.

A VICTIM of a paedophile priest has called for a Garda investigation into allegations that his attacker and up to two dozen other priests in Raphoe abused children over a 35 year period.Just six priests from the Diocese have been brought to justice for crimes against children.One of them was Father Eugene Greene, a child sex monster who was moved through eight different parishes where he raped and abused dozens and dozens of young boys. Now one of those victims has told donegaldaily.com that a forthcoming report must be published in full and gardai must investigate allegations of a cover-up within the Church.The church-run National Board for Safeguarding Children in the Catholic Church has spent months carrying out a review of all allegations made against priests in Co Donegal.Bishop Philip Boyce will publish that report in the next two weeks.The victim of Father Greene told us: “It wasn’t just him. That is now clear. I have spoken with a lot of victims who have never even been to gardai and the allegations concern two dozen priests at least. “I hope this report is published in full. I want Bishop Boyce to publish it and deal with it and there were people in the diocese who knew about Greene and others and they were just sent to other parishes.“Some victims have killed themselves. Someone has to pay a price for that.”The so-called audit asked the diocese to hand over details on all abuse allegations against priests dating back to the mid-1970s.It is understood the audit will be damning of the Church and how it handled allegations of child sex abuse.Some in the Church believed paedophiles could be ‘cured’. The Diocese doesn’t have to publish the report. Audit reports are published at the discretion of each bishop.However Bishop Philip Boyce has made it clear that he will publish it. He is expected to issue a lengthy statement in which he will apologise on behalf of the Church for the abuse which took place.Father Greene served nine years of a 12 year sentence and was released from prison in 2008. He is now living in Co Cork.He abused dozens of boys between 1965 and 1982.

The scene of today’s fireFIRE officers are tackling a huge gorse fire in the county today.The blaze broke out on ground at Ardsbeg, Gortahork earlier.It’s one of a number of reported fires around Donegal today, with another fire reported near Ramelton. The blazes come just hours after Donegal County Council and fire brigade staff warned that the recent dry weather had created dangerous gorse fire conditions.Our picture shows the Gortahork fire with the snow-topped ‘Taobh a’Leithead’ mountain behind.A council spokeswoman said conditions exist for further fires.“Our appeal follows information received from the Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine which advised forest owners, managers and the public that high forest fire risk conditions now exist over parts of Ireland and that these conditions are expected to continue over the coming Easter holiday weekend. “Despite the severe weather being experienced in many parts of the country, the Fire Weather Index forecast produced by Met Eireann for the period 27th to 31st March predicts high fire risk conditions for fire in many parts of Ireland.“Low rainfall and moderate South-East or East breezes are forecast to continue for the coming days and will contribute to high fire risk conditions particularly in the South West, West and North-West of the country.“Forest owners, farmers, rural dwellers and holiday makers are asked to be vigilant, to report any suspicious activity to the Gardai and to report any uncontrolled or unattended fires immediately to the Fire and Emergency Services.“The Department also recommends that forest owners, managers and investors should consider the fire mitigation measures that they can put in place to help prevent loss or damage to forest resources through fire.” FIRE OFFICERS TACKLE HUGE GORSE FIRE AS COUNCIL RENEWS WARNING was last modified: March 30th, 2013 by BrendaShare 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:adsbegardsbegFIRE OFFICERS TACKLE HUGE GORSE FIRE AS COUNCIL RENEWS WARNINGgortahorkRamelton
