Numancia puts its focus on Marc Gual

first_imgThe forward assigned by Sevilla to Girona, Marc Gual, It is the great goal of CD Numancia as Diario As has been able to know. Sources consulted by this newspaper assure that the battering ram is the great claim of the Soriano team; an interesting footballer and who from the offices redheads know him from his stage in Espanyol B. In case of fruiting the negotiations he would arrive at Soria as a loan but the inconvenience is in the monetary. The operation is a high economic amount that the Numancia CD cannot assume. The Girona intends to incorporate a new player with offensive mood, only in that case he would let Gual out. The nine, native of Badalona, It is a very complicated operation to date for Numancia, although as it has already been demonstrated in this winter market everything can happen. Gual was a dressing room companion for two players who are currently active in Numancia, such as Curro Sánchez and Bernardo Cruz. Another player who has been aware of Diario As and for which the Soria club is interested is Gorka Guruzeta. The Athletic squad has reached the first team and from the closest environment recognizes Soria’s interest in his services. An injury temporarily slowed his projection. Now he is in the process of recovery, defining him as a player: “With potential.” The Donostiarra scored 26 goals in his four years at the rojiblanco branch until he made the leap to the first team from Biscay. Although in order for certain players to come, Numancia needs to check out several of those in the first team. One of the men who has received offers to change airs is Nestor Albiach. The player who has only played a total of 119 minutes spread over six games. The Castellón of the Second Division B is interested in the player of Xirivella to defend his colors as a loan.Aguado about to reach SoriaAs Diario As has been telling throughout the month, Real Valladolid player Álvaro Aguado would be about to close his assignment to CD Numancia. The midfielder does not enter Sergio’s plans and from the Soriano club the soccer player has always been seen with good eyes, who will join Luis Carrión’s discipline until next June. There are small fringes to close between the parties so that their official status could take place in the next few hours. As As has learned, Aguado’s arrival could close the doors of the mediocentro José Rodríguez of Málaga. With Aguado there would be three incorporations made by the Soria club in this winter market, with more than a week to close the signing period.last_img read more

Man City face FIFA transfer ban: report

first_imgEuropean football’s governing body UEFA is also looking into potential breaches of financial fair play, an investigation that could result in City being banned from the Champions League.A transfer ban for the Premier League champions would come less than a month after Chelsea were hit with the same sanction for 29 breaches of article 19 of FIFA’s regulations on the transfer and status of players.The west London club have already lodged an appeal against that punishment but were told by world governing body FIFA last week that the sanction would not be frozen while the case is being reviewed, as Chelsea had hoped.FIFA has been investigating City’s international transfers for several years, although the club were cleared of breaking the rules when they signed Benjamin Garre from Velez Sarsfield in 2016 just after the Argentine midfielder’s 16th birthday.According to the Sun report, FIFA believes City have crossed the line, though, in regards to their relationship with FC Nordsjaelland and the Right To Dream football academy in Ghana that is also owned by the Danish side’s president, Tom Vernon.Last year, two players from the academy, Sierra Leone’s George Davies and Ghanaian Dominic Oduro, told Danish newspaper Jyllands-Posten that they signed for City and played in youth matches before they turned 18.Both have since left City — Davies now plays in Latvia and Oduro in the United States — but FIFA has been investigating their time with the English club.And that investigation was broadened later in 2018 when a second Danish newspaper, Politiken, published a story that said City had a secret deal with Vernon to have first refusal on the best prospects from Right to Dream.If true, that would be a breach of the rules preventing the third-party ownership of players, as City could be argued to have undue influence over another club’s players.Neither FIFA nor City were available for comment on Thursday.City have welcomed the UEFA investigation into allegations that the club tried to circumvent financial fair play regulations, and Blues boss Pep Guardiola said on the issue last week: “I said last season I trust a lot what the club has done because I know them. Hopefully they can solve it as soon as possible.”As well as Chelsea, Spanish trio Atletico Madrid, Barcelona and Real Madrid have all been punished for signing under-age players from abroad in the past.Real were able to get their ban reduced on appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport, an avenue Chelsea will also explore.0Shares0000(Visited 6 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Manchester City face a transfer ban, according to a report © AFP/File / Adrian DENNISLONDON, United Kingdom, Mar 15 – Manchester City will be banned by FIFA from making signings in the next two transfer windows after they broke rules related to the protection of youth players and third-party ownership, according to a report in the Sun newspaper.The club are already being investigated by the Football Association and Premier League over allegations related to youth transfers and financial fair play rules.last_img read more

Culver City catches Redondo flagging

first_img“He is a great player and we gave him too many chances,” Redondo coach Gene Simon said. Banks, who led the state in passing last season, beat Redondo (2-3) more with his legs than his arm. He passed for two touchdowns to Antwon Moutra, but also ran for three scores and a handful of critical first-down conversions down the stretch. One such play came early in the fourth quarter when he ran from sideline to sideline, scrambling for 16 yards on fourth-and-8. The play lasted 18 seconds. Culver City (5-0) scored two plays later to take its first lead of the game, 24-21. “It’s quite bittersweet when you play against him. It’s sweet for the first five seconds when you think you’ve stopped him, but that feeling turns into rage for the last eight seconds when he gets away and runs down the field,” Simon said. “Every time, we called the perfect defense to stop him, but then he improvises.” Banks also was the beneficiary of a number of pass interference calls. Redondo was called for pass interference five times for 66 yards. Redondo’s Nick Jones was called for pass interference on three different plays, but helped make up for some of it with a 17-yard touchdown catch on a pass from Erik Wilson with 2:40 left in the game. But the score was too little, too late. Redondo’s best scoring chance before Jones’ catch came with the team clinging to a four-point lead in the third quarter. On fourth-and-3 at his team’s 45-yard line, Nick Garcia ran an inside handoff on a fake punt for 7 yards and a first down. But the drive ended four plays later when Gray was stopped a foot shy of a first down on fourth-and-1. “If we got that first down there and went on to score, we would have stayed in the ballgame a little longer,” Simon said. david.saunders@dailybreeze.com160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! Redondo was flagged 11 times for 140 yards in Friday night’s 38-28 nonleague loss at Culver City. At one point, the Sea Hawks faced third-and-50 after three unsportsmanlike conduct penalties on back-to-back fourth-quarter plays, effectively killing the team’s last shot at reeling in Culver City. It was those penalties that nullified a three-touchdown, 257-yard rushing performance by Gray, who carried the ball 18 times. “The calls didn’t go our way and that was the biggest factor in the game,” Gray said. “They not only took away from what we were trying to do on offense, but they really brought the spirit of the team down.” Penalties not only stalled all but one of Redondo’s four second-half possessions, but also gave Culver City quarterback Darius Banks a fresh set of downs on four occasions. Banks made the most of those opportunities as Culver City outscored Redondo, 28-7, in the second half. NONLEAGUE: Centaurs quarterback Banks capitalizes when Sea Hawks falter. By David Saunders STAFF WRITER As precious fourth-quarter seconds ticked off the clock, Redondo running back Hayward Gray could do nothing more than shake his head at the result of a game that wasn’t lost on the line of scrimmage, but rather on the belt loop of the officiating crew. last_img read more

Crystal Palace v Liverpool live stream – Premier League football on talkSPORT

first_imgCLICK HERE TO STREAM CRYSTAL PALACE V LIVERPOOL LIVE ON TALKSPORT TODAY, KICK OFF 13:30 GMT.Liverpool bounced back from their League Cup final heartache to thrash Man City 3-0 in the Premier League, to give themselves a glimmer of hope of making the top four.But the Reds have a wretched record at Selhurst Park. Check out some of the key stats ahead of the game, which is live on talkSPORT around the globe and on national radio in the UK.– Crystal Palace ended Tottenham’s hopes of the treble with an unexpected 1-0 win at White Hart Lane that took them into the FA Cup quarter-finals.– An unlikely goal on a rare start for Martin Kelly, coupled with a vastly-improved overall performance, proved enough to secure a victory that will lift the mood that had been settling at Palace and inflict a rare disappointing note on Spurs so-far promising season. – With Tottenham also challenging for the Premier League title and Europa League, manager Mauricio Pochettino chose to again rotate his team from that which had drawn 1-1 at Fiorentina on Thursday.– Harry Kane, Kyle Walker, Danny Rose, and Eric Dier were recalled to his starting XI, while goalkeeper Michel Vorm retained his place in the absence of the injured Hugo Lloris and there were also rare starts for Josh Onomah and Nabil Bentaleb as Christian Eriksen and Toby Alderweireld were rested.– Palace’s only victories in 2016 had come in the Cup. They had lost to Spurs in the Premier League only a month ago, and after this week taking his team to Spain for a training camp to prepare for this fixture, manager Alan Pardew surprisingly set his team up in a 4-4-2 formation, pairing Connor Wickham with former Spurs striker Emmanuel Adebayor in a front two and recalling the fit-again Joe Ledley.– As far as solutions to poor runs go – they had last won in the league on December 19 at Stoke – it was far from inspirational, but even then it surprised when Kelly began to emerge as the possible match-winner. – The full-back last played at former club Liverpool in November and was only selected in the absence of the suspended Pape Souare, though will know the in-form Spurs could easily have built an early lead.– Yohan Cabaye blocked a Dele Alli header off the line in the opening minutes, and though Walker almost headed an own goal over Vorm in the 14th minute – requiring the goalkeeper to recover and palm clear – Spurs’ threat remained greater.– If the hosts were then fortunate, they were far less so with another effort from Alli in the 23rd minute. Son Hueng-Min broke down the left wing, and after Damien Delaney dispossessed him, Alli collected the loose ball before curling against the far right post, watching the ball roll along the line before hitting the other and then being cleared off the line by Joel Ward.– On the stroke of half-time, however, shortly after Kane had tested Wayne Hennessey with a 30-yard free-kick, Palace’s, and Kelly’s chance arrived almost from nowhere.– Wilfried Zaha drew Rose out of position, and with Kelly overlapping on the right-wing, played the full-back into the area from where he impressively and powerfully struck high inside Vorm’s near post. – Though Spurs could do without further fixtures in their already busy schedule – and a replay was surely the last thing Pochettino wanted – he turned to substitutes Eriksen, Nacer Chadli and Ryan Mason in his pursuit of victory.– Yannick Bolasie, who had been missing since December 19 with a hip injury, returned as a second-half sub for Palace, creating a chance which was disallowed after the offside Wickham turned it into the net. They thereafter defended resiliently, securing the clean sheet which took them into the competition’s last eight. 1 talkSPORT brings you live coverage from Selhurst Park last_img read more


first_imgDonegal MEP Pat the Cope Gallagher has tabled amendments on boar fish and for whitefish vessels fishing off the North West Coast including under 15 metres.On 05 April next, the European Parliament will vote principally to extend the existing transitional technical measures under the Common Fisheries Policy to January 2013.The European Commission is anxious to roll over the Regulation. However, Pat the Cope Gallagher MEP is aiming to amend this important regulation  so as to introduce an appropriate mesh size for the fishery targeting boarfish and separately to enable whitefish vessels and small boats under 15 metres to fish stocks other than cod off the North West coast of Ireland.MEP Gallagher stated “EU Ministers for Fisheries agreed in December to grant Ireland 67% of the TAC for boar fish.“However, the existing rules under the Common Fisheries Policy do not recognise this type of fish, which is caught in nets with a mesh size in the range 32-54mm.“Therefore, I decided to use the Regulation on technical measures as a vehicle to introduce the appropriate mesh size. Thus avoiding the need introduce new legislation, which would take too long.”  “The European Parliament’s Fisheries Committee strongly supported my amendment in February and I am confident that the plenary will formally adopt. The 27 governments are also supportive.”“I have also submitted amendments to allow whitefish and small boats under 15 metres to fish off the North West coast in Area VIa. Regrettably, the other political groups in the Parliament failed to support the amendments at Committee”.“Area VIa is effectively closed for whitefish with a significant loss of income due  to unworkable technical measures introduced two years ago for cod recovery.These vessels do not catch cod however the rules under the Regulation make it virtually impossible to catch other species such as megrim, monkfish, haddock and hake.“I am very concerned for the financial viability of vessels involved if these measures are not amended without delay.” “In addition particularly for vessels under 15 metres, there is an important health and safety concern which needs to be addressed as quickly as possible. The current mesh size effectively means that fishermen must steam approximately 80km out from their ports into dangerous waters in order to make a living.”ENDSPAT THE COPE FIGHTS FOR NEW SPECIES QUOTAS FOR WHITE FISH VESSELS was last modified: March 29th, 2011 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:fishing rights DonegaklPat The Cope Gallagherwhite fishlast_img read more

L.A. cold-case detectives swamped

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORECasino Insider: Here’s a look at San Manuel’s new high limit rooms, Asian restaurant “This is an extraordinarily important priority for me,” said Councilman Jack Weiss, who chairs the panel. Weiss, a former federal prosecutor, acknowledged that funding is tight in city government – facing a $270 million shortfall in next year’s budget – but he said the extra cops could save resources by arresting prolific felons who commit numerous crimes. Despite opposition from some civil libertarians, who objected to a requirement for DNA samples upon arrest and not just after conviction, Proposition 69 passed with 62 percent of the vote. By 2009, the measure will require police to take DNA samples from all adults arrested on suspicion of committing felonies, as well as all people convicted of felonies and serious misdemeanors. In the meantime, police agencies across the state have begun taking samples from a smaller group of arrestees and convicts. The samples get sent to state analysts who will soon be returning large volumes of data to local police. Last year, 5,000 DNA samples were collected each month in Los Angeles County. Officials expect an average of 6,000 a month this year. When the LAPD matches that information with its own evidence gathered from crime scenes, it could produce promising new leads in more than 350 unsolved cases, mostly sexual assaults and homicides, said Deputy District Attorney Lisa Kahn. “We’re going to have some very serious predators to investigate,” Kahn said. “But the cold hit is basically the starting point. … It’s the beginning of hundreds of hours of investigative work before a case can be filed and prosecuted.” The bulk of that work falls to the LAPD’s 3-year-old Cold Case Homicide Unit, which has six detectives working on about 80 cases. LAPD officials are seeking an immediate increase to 12 detectives and eventually want 18. The other key unit for the unsolved cases, the LAPD’s Scientific Investigation Division, has problems of its own. The division, which analyzes the crime-scene evidence that gets matched to DNA samples, has 30 employees squeezed into a facility built for nine as they await a new laboratory expected to open next year, said Steven Johnson, head of the division. “They don’t even have their own desks, so it’s a difficult situation,” he said. “The light at the end of the tunnel is the new laboratory.” The LAPD reserves almost all its analysis resources for violent cases, although DNA evidence will be collected in some property crimes in a new pilot program in the San Fernando Valley. One-third of citywide residential burglaries occur in the Valley, according to a city report, so the area was was chosen for the pilot program, funded with a $436,077 federal grant. The Public Safety Committee approved the pilot program while calling for another hearing in several weeks to discuss funding for more cold case detectives.

The Los Angeles Police Department lacks enough detectives to handle a looming onslaught of DNA evidence that could help identify the culprits in hundreds of unsolved cases a year, officials said Monday. Police said the LAPD might need to triple the number of officers handling cold cases to pursue leads generated by Proposition 69, approved by California voters in 2004 to require that agencies take DNA samples from many suspects, as well as convicted criminals. “There is going to be just an avalanche of ‘hits’ coming down the road, and we need to prepare for that,” said Cmdr. Harlan Ward, head of the LAPD’s Detective Bureau. Members of the City Council’s Public Safety Committee directed the LAPD to work with city administrators to try to find money for the extra detectives. last_img read more
