Official: Papu is already a Racing player until the end of the season

first_imgPapu is left-handed, he has a lot of quality, he is an idol in his country and he can play both on the right wing, playing a changed foot, or as a midfielder. During the talks between both clubs, the sports director Maño, Lalo Arantegui, has insisted to his racing counterpart, Chuti Molina, that Zaragoza prefers to play inside. Another thing is the accommodation that Christopher finds him since in the two positions in which The new signing is where Yoda and Cejudo usually play, the two top scorers and Racing assistants. In fact, it seemed much more urgent to hire a born center forward than another midfielder. In any case, Papu’s class is indisputable and Chuti Molina was taken by his qualities since he saw him mark a hat-trick al Albacete in May 2018. Giorgi Papunashvili, 24, has a difficult mission for the next five months: trying to help Racing avoid the downgrade. Real Zaragoza and the Cantabrian club simultaneously announced the assignment, advanced by AS on January 2, from Georgian midfielder until the end of the season. In the end, it has been the player who has chosen since he had on the table the offers of Racing and Extremadura.The operation has been very close to shipwrecked since, after having an agreement with the player, Racing refused to accept an economic penalty clause in case Papu does not play almost everything until the end of LaLiga Smartbank, 15 games. We must bear in mind that only 20 days remain but from which we must discount the duel against Zaragoza to be played at El Sardinero, since Chuti Molina has not only accepted the penalty for matches but has also signed the fear clause so Cristóbal Parralo will not be able to count on his new player in the March 1 game.last_img read more

Ronaldo, Bale net goals in Real Madrid win

first_imgBARCELONA, Spain (AP):Gareth Bale scored his first goal in three months for Real Madrid before Cristiano Ronaldo added a penalty to secure a 2-0 win at Eibar yesterday and end their two-game losing run in Spain’s La Liga.Bale headed in Luka Modric’s cross two minutes before half-time, and Ronaldo converted a spot kick in the 82nd after a penalty was awarded when substitute Lucas Vazquez went down after slight contact with Dani Garcia.Madrid’s win at Ipurua Stadium came after the team was heavily criticised for a loss at Sevilla and last weekend’s 4-0 defeat to Barcelona.Madrid remained in third place, six points behind leaders Barcelona and two points behind Atletico Madrid after they both won on Saturday.”We arrived here after going through some difficult moments, and we are all aware that we have to improve,” said Madrid goalkeeper Keylor Navas. “These are three important points that keep us in the title race.”Ronaldo, who hadn’t escaped criticism from Madrid’s fans for the loss to Barcelona, spent most of the game lamenting missed chances before he got his ninth league goal of the season from the spot.Until the Portugal forward put the result beyond doubt, the hosts had matched Madrid’s talent with effort and constantly appeared threatening.Eibar, which was missing injured top scorer Borja “Baston” Gonzalez and suspended forward Sergio “Keko” Gontan, slipped two spots into eighth place after only their third loss in 13 rounds.”We played a good game in defence, but we needed to show more fire going forward,” said Eibar manager Jose Mendilibar.While under-fire Madrid coach Rafa Benitez got some breathing room, Valencia manager Nuno Espirito Santo is set to step down after his team finished with nine-men in a 1-0 loss at Sevilla.last_img read more

Halfway through the first period, Dawson Creek got a powerplay goal, when a Colter MacLean effort appeared to go in off the skate of Brandon Juell.But, after an outstanding first ten minutes, the Jr. Canucks allowed three straight goals in the final four minutes of the first, scored by Cody Hildebrand, Robbie Sidhu, and Owen MacKinnon.- Advertisement -The teams exchanged goals in the second, with Hildebrand scoring his second of the game, when the puck trickled out of York’s equipment and over the goal line.

THANKS FOR BEING YOU, MANUS

first_imgI didn’t know Manus Kelly the rally driver.Unlike so many other people across Donegal, I wasn’t brought up on rallying.But I did know Manus Kelly the man. Perhaps not as well as so many others who mourned his utterly tragic loss last week.But I knew Manus to stop and chat to and have a laugh with. And you always had a laugh with Manus.The last time I spoke to him was a couple of days before he died doing one of the things in life he loved doing.I was in Italy on holiday with my family and he was making the final preparations for this year’s rally. But he wasn’t calling in his own interest but in the interest of others.He wanted me to put in a press release on Donegal Daily urging people to be safe around rally time and to drive carefully and to think of others.I told him I was on holiday but I’d get it sorted through the office for him.He called me a bollox and said something about me being on another holiday and that was the last time we spoke.On Sunday afternoon last I sat down in a bar on a campsite in Italy surrounded by Cavan fans waiting for the Ulster Final to start. I check the Donegal Daily site and noticed that three stages of the rally had been cancelled because of an “incident.”Before I could even check to see what had happened my 15-year-old son showed me a snapchat from one of his friends which simply said ‘RIP Manus.’I just muttered to him that the fella who posted that should be ashamed of himself as I dismissed it out of hand.My phone started to vibrate then to Whats App messages and texts and I knew then that something was dreadfully wrong. I went to my wife who was down beside a lake swimming and getting ready to come up to join us to watch the game.She turned to me and was on her mobile phone and I knew by the look on her face that it was true.I watched the game and thought of the likes of Michael Murphy and Aidy Glackin and if they knew about Manus before they took to the pitch.In truth, I didn’t really watch the game but just thought about Manus and his family, about his wife Bernie and his mother and father Donal and Jackie.I ultimately thought of his kids. Only last week I sat having a cup of coffee in Tobins in Letterkenny and Manus and Bernie’s two eldest sons Mandy and Charlie were in having a sandwich.I know them both through our local Glenswilly GAA club. Two mischevious lads who you wouldn’t change for the world.They laughed at each other and as they ran out the door I had to call out after young Mandy that he had forgotten his coat. He thanked me and away they went.Manus would have just thrown his eyes up to heaven and laughed at the two lads and muttered something like “they’re some bucks.”I’m dreading meeting the Kelly family as much as I want to tell them how sorry I am for the loss of Manus and to apologise for not being at Manus’ funeral and wake.Decent people. No-nonsense people. Community people. People people.We came back from holiday on Saturday night and we headed down to Manus’ grave to say a prayer and to pay our respects.Pictures of him on the grave amidst fresh floral tributes with poignant messages from family members.For some unknown reason which I am ashamed of I became angry with Manus for being behind the steering wheel of that car.But deep down I know he loved it like all the other things in life he loved including Bernie and the kids, his family, his work and his community.I turned from his graveside and looked across the skyline above the graves at Conwal towards Bomany which had turned an unforgiving black with rain-swollen clouds.I have only black thoughts when I think of Manus and how, like so many others, we didn’t get a chance to say goodbye to him.I’m trying to think of the many, many happier times when he made me laugh be it down in his café, out on the sideline in the park at Glenswilly or just a casual meeting on the street.It’s difficult but we have to try.To eventually smile and remember Manus with fondness in the passing of time rather than to think about his sad and sudden passing is what his legacy should be.Thanks for being you, Manus.SM.THANKS FOR BEING YOU, MANUS was last modified: July 2nd, 2019 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:donegalglenswillyManus Kellyrallytributelast_img read more

The story is here: https://www.donegaldaily.com/2012/08/02/is-this-donegals-most-expensive-bag-of-spuds/Following the latest claims, the consumer told us: “This was not a stall run by someone else. This was at the gate to a farm and the people selling the spuds are selling their own spuds from their own farm. They are farmers.“I am delighted to hear that most farmers are not over-charging. But this one was and I am angry at attempts to say that my purchase didn’t happen. It did. That’s why I contacted donegaldaily.com.”And just for the record, we went to the same farm today and bought the same bag of spuds. And it’s cost?…..FIVE EURO.
