first_imgThe cold statistic says that only 7% of the occasions in which the local team loses in the first leg manages to overcome in the return match in European competitions. An added challenge for Madrid, which must be traced on March 17 in Etihad on 1-2 suffered Wednesday against City. There is a happy precedent. Only one to look at. It was in 1970, in the knockout round of the extinct Recopa (it was played by the Cup champions of each country).The whites, trained by Miguel Muñoz, lost in the first leg at the Bernabéu against Wacker Innsbruck 0-1, in a bad game and with little atmosphere. On the return, played on November 4, 1970, the Real Madrid players gave a joy to the Spanish emigrants who were seen in the stands of the Tivoli Stadion thanks to the goals of Grande and the Cadiz Manolín Bueno.That Madrid would end up playing the final of the Recopa against Chelsea in Athens, which he lost after a playoff game.Real Madrid 0 – Wacker 1, 10-21-1970, European Cup Winners Cup, round of 16 (first leg)REAL MADRID, 0: Miguel Angel; José Luis, De Felipe, Benito, Sanchis; Pirri, Grande, Velázquez; Amancio, Marañón and Manolin Good.

first_imgSome neighborhood councils members said they hope more information and insight will lead to more consensus and better development. “With education, (neighborhood councils) will be willing to allow more development when they’ve had an educated look at the project and had discussion with the applicant to reach agreement and find a middle ground,” said Jacque Lamishaw, a Winnetka Neighborhood Council member and planning consultant who helped develop the pilot program. Planning Director Gail Goldberg, who took over the department a year ago today, has said neighborhood councils should have a role in designing and developing its communities. The pilot program is part of her effort to engage the community in planning its neighborhoods. “We’re trying to come up with real plans communities can embrace,” Goldberg said. “If we’re going to create plans together, we need to have a relationship.” Besides getting neighborhood councils more information about projects, the department will offer training in how to read technical planning documents, how to make effective comments on proposals, and other planning topics. The pilot program is the second agreement neighborhood councils have finalized with city departments. Under a memorandum of understanding with the Department of Water and Power, councils now are notified and consulted before important decisions and proposed rate increases.

Since development is one of the most contentious and pressing issues in the city, the Los Angeles Planning Department and neighborhood councils have launched a pilot program to give communities a greater say in land-use decisions. Under the agreement, the Planning Department will send neighborhood councils copies of project applications and ensure that any position the councils take is considered in final decisions. Sounds simple enough. But it’s a level of communication that residents and activists have rarely been able to achieve with the massive, complicated department. As a result, residents, planners and developers have often battled over new commercial and residential projects. last_img read more

first_imgBournemouth manager Eddie Howe lamented a double refereeing decision which went against them in their hugely undeserved 1-0 defeat at Liverpool.After Tommy Elphick’s early goal was disallowed, Christian Benteke grabbed the Reds’ winner despite Philippe Coutinho interfering with play whilst standing in an offside position.The Cherries pressed hard for an equaliser but to no avail, and Howe feels his side were out of luck in their first ever Premier League game against the Merseyside outfit.“It [Benteke’s goal] is a clear offside under the new rules. I was very surprised even from my poor angle that the goal was given,” said the 37-year-old.“Our goalkeeper is clearly impacted by the player in the middle of the goal. It’s hugely frustrating after the goal [Elphick’s header] was disallowed as well.”The Premier League issued new rules regarding the offside rule before the start to the season, stating that any player who makes a play towards the ball, even if they don’t go onto touch it, is deemed offside.Benteke’s goal, by virtue, shouldn’t have counted, but it was captain Elphick’s disallowed header in the fourth minute that means Bournemouth and Howe leave Anfield doubly aggrieved by the result.The Cherries boss added: “Tommy has won the ball fairly for me. He’s been aggressive but if that’s a foul then we will be having a foul every time there are corners.“It’s very disappointing. It’s basically a two-goal swing against us. It’s two big decisions that have gone against us and we’ve ultimately been punished by that.”last_img read more

first_imgLouis van Gaal hailed Manchester United’s “unbelievable” spirit after they beat Everton 2-1 to reach the FA Cup final – before admitting his continued uncertainty about his chances of still being with the club next season.Anthony Martial struck a dramatic stoppage-time winner at Wembley after Marouane Fellaini’s 34th-minute opener was cancelled out by a Chris Smalling own-goal 15 minutes from time.United had dominated the first half, with Everton then mounting a comeback during which Toffees striker Romelu Lukaku had a 57th-minute penalty brilliantly saved by David de Gea.The semi-final looked certain to head into extra time, but Martial then intervened to send the Red Devils into their first FA Cup final in nine years as they remained on course for their first trophy since 2013.United are currently fifth in the Barclays Premier League and there has been plenty of talk this season about boss Van Gaal being replaced in the summer.And having praised his team for their efforts on Saturday, the Dutchman – asked how important winning the FA Cup could be for the team’s development heading into next season – said: “I am not looking beyond this competition and FA Cup, because we live in the present.“For the future, I will discuss that with my board and others.”Van Gaal, whose current contract runs until the summer of 2017, was then asked if he would consider winning the FA Cup but failing to qualify for the Champions League a success.The 64-year-old replied: “It is not for me to judge – it is for the board of Manchester United.”Van Gaal had no doubt his side deserved to win the match.And although he did not dispute the awarding of the penalty by referee Anthony Taylor following Timothy Fosu-Mensah’s challenge on Ross Barkley, he was critical of the official more generally as he gave his assessment of the contest.“I think in the first half we were the better team,” Van Gaal said.“We scored and created more chances, although we could have finished more.“In the second half I think the referee changed the match.“I have to say I think it was a penalty – I don’t argue. But I argue about over 50 duels that were not in our favour – when you do that over 10 or 15 minutes in a row, you have a big influence in the game.“After that we scored the own-goal and it was 1-1, and then you saw we were showing our spirit. It was unbelievable.“We were out of the game, but then back in it, and then Anthony scores a fantastic goal.“We are lucky we scored in the last minute but we deserved to win.”last_img read more

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORECoach Doc Rivers a “fan” from way back of Jazz’s Jordan Clarkson Among the qualities you’d want from the greatest quarterback in college football history, high on the list would be a strong arm. So this could be a handicap for Leinart if we’re judging by raw tools. All the same, if something like that drops him behind Johnny Lujack or Les Horvath or Vinny Testaverde on the all-time list, it’s likely not to spoil Leinart’s memories of three seasons as the Trojans’ starting quarterback and on-the-field leader. If Leinart might not be the greatest ever – there are a lot of contenders for that distinction, after all – he can console himself with the knowledge that no quarterback ever got as much out of a university career as he has. He’s got those national championships, two according to the Associated Press poll and three if the Trojans beat the Longhorns in Pasadena. He’s got that Heisman Trophy, which puts him in a group with eight others who quarterbacked a national champion and won a Heisman (Lujack, Horvath, Angelo Bertelli, Davey O’Brien, Gino Torretta, Charlie Ward, Danny Wuerffel, Chris Weinke) and puts him in a group with one other who quarterbacked multiple national champions and won a Heisman (Lujack). He’s got a high selection in the NFL Draft to look forward to, and is likely to join three others who quarterbacked a national champion, won a Heisman and went either as the top quarterback in the draft or otherwise in the top 10 picks (Lujack, Horvath, Bertelli). He’s got this 34-game winning streak which, if the Trojans win this week, will match the record for a starting quarterback (set by Chuck Ealy when the Toledo quarterback went 35-0 in 1969-71). He’s got a host of USC and Pac-10 records already, and very likely will end up with the NCAA record for the lowest percentage of passes intercepted in a career. He’s got the iconic, last-minute drive that won the Notre Dame game in October, culminating with his touchdown push through a pack of humanity, a play that made him the hero of every day-after-Thanksgiving shopper at Mervyn’s. He’s got the satisfaction of having helped Reggie Bush to win a Heisman of his own this season. He’s got the benefits of being the most eligible 22-year-old bachelor in L.A. He’s got the much-admired decision to stay in school for his senior season. And before any of that, he’s got one of the nicest back stories in Hollywood, as the cross-eyed kid who grew into an eagle-eyed passer. That’s 10 reasons that Matt Leinart needs to be remembered as the greatest quarterback in college football history about as much as Hugh Hefner needs sainthood. Unless you want to proclaim Leinart the answer to “Who’s the greatest?” just to be a dutiful homer, you have to admit that it’s an unanswerable question. What makes somebody the greatest – being the most talented, or the most honored, or the most valuable to your team? How do you account for the huge differences in the way the game is played from O’Brien’s day to Carson Palmer’s? How do you compare John Elway (incredible skills, but no Heisman and no national title) and Wuerffel (Heisman and national title, but a third-round draft choice)? “There are so many great ones,” Leinart said Sunday. “Elway wasgreat. There’s so many guys who did great in college and the NFL. … It’s definitely an honor if I’m one of the top guys – top 10, top 20, whatever.” No less than Dan Fouts, the prolific San Diego Chargers passer who will be ABC’s analyst for the Rose Bowl, thinks there’s a strong case for Leinart as the top 1. “He’s got to be No. 1,” Fouts said. “When you have a (won-lost) record like has – how else do you judge a quarterback? Hey, Joe Montana’s the greatest quarterback in NFL history – because he has the numbers. It’s all a debate, but I remember from debating that you’ve got to back it up with numbers.” There are two ways of looking at this. From where fans stand – from the outside-in – the question would be whether Leinart entertained us in such a way as to be remembered as the greatest college quarterback ever. From where he stands – from the inside-out – the question would be whether Leinart entertained himself in such a way as to be remembered as the most fulfilled college quarterback ever. The answer to the first question is a definite maybe. The answer to the second is a definite yes. If I were him, I’d rather have the consolation prize.

Leinart himself put his credentials in a sling a couple of days ago when, in reminiscing about his days as a Fountain Valley youth-league pitcher, he noted the damage all of those early fastballs did to his left arm. “Now I have a ‘good’ arm, but not a ‘strong’ arm,” Leinart said at a Beverly Hills hotel in one of the news conferences before Wednesday night’s USC-Texas Rose Bowl. “I wish I had my shoulder back.” center_img Matt Leinart probably is not the greatest quarterback in the history of college football.

first_imgBY EMMET RUSHE: Every time someone starts Personal Training with me, or becomes a member of my Better Bodies classes, it usually isn’t long before I get asked a few questions. Almost every single time, one of the questions will be in relation to something that someone has said.It usually goes like this. Client – “You know how you have fruit in your smoothies?”Me – “Yeah, it’s a great way of adding taste to them and also getting your fruit and some fibre at the same time.”Client – “Yeah, it’s just that, Jenny at the office said that if I eat too much fruit, it will make me fat.”Me – “Fruit makes you fat? How much fruit does Jenny think you are eating?” Everyone has an opinion.Everyone thinks that they are entitled to their opinion.Sometimes you are, and sometimes you are not.Sometimes you really need to learn when to say nothing at all.One of these times is usually when you are talking to someone who has started a diet, or has started training. The reason is simple.Whenever someone mentions that they are making a change for the better, there will always be this one person, who will have some horrific information as to why, WHATEVER you are doing, is wrong.Client –“I have started lifting weights, I really think it will help me improve my shape and lose some weight.”Jenny – “You shouldn’t be doing that, I know this one girl who started lifting weights and she turned into a man” Client – “I have started to drink more water. I am really seeing the benefits in my skin and I feel so much better when I’m training”Jenny – “You shouldn’t drink so much water. I know this one girl who drank too much water and she died”Client – “I’m eating more fruit and also adding berries to my smoothies. They are a great way for me to get more fibre in my diet and also to get my 5 a day”Jenny – “You shouldn’t eat so much fruit. The sugar in fruit will make you fat”You see ‘Jenny’ hates change.It makes her uncomfortable.What makes her even more uncomfortable is whenever someone else starts to change something about themselves.This change, no matter what it is; weight loss or training, it highlights all of Jenny’s failings.Every time she has failed on a diet, every time she has started training and stopped a few weeks later, it all comes out, when you start on your journey.Sometimes, they won’t know they are doing it; it’s an automatic reaction to the discomfort they are feeling.Other times they will know exactly what they are doing.Like when they badger you to go for drinks at the weekend, knowing full well that you have given it up to concentrate on your goal.Like when they bring buns and biscuits into work and tell you that one won’t kill you, knowing that you are on a diet.When they bring those buns to work, making it look like they want to share them with their work colleagues, what they really want is to eat buns.By bringing them into work, they feel less guilty because now everyone is eating buns.Starting any training or nutrition program is hard.Change is hard, because there has to be some form of discomfort in order for change to happen.It’s hard enough without someone who is supposed to be a friend trying to sabotage it.Trying to sabotage your friend means you are not much of a friend.Here’s an idea…why not use their new motivation as motivation for yourself and join them?#TrainSmartIf you have any question on this article or for getting a tailored program based on your starting point, please contact me through the link below.
