Upset in Liverpool over the “excessive” celebration of Atleti

first_imgThe Telegraph, in an article signed by Chris Bascombe, question the methods of Cholo Simeone and some attitudes of Atlético players, criticizes the style of soccer they practice and collects the complaints, more or less manifest, of Klopp and some of his Liverpool players for the euphoria in the athletic celebration, since it was the first leg and there is still the return in Anfield After the game, with irony and subtlety, Klopp already recorded in a press conference the discomfort of Liverpool over excessive euphoria of players, coach and fans of Atletico, as there is still the return: “I have seen happy faces tonight at Atletico. I understand because it is an important victory, but this is not over yet. There are 90 minutes left in Anfield. The referee I also had to deal with the environment today in the Wanda Metropolitano. Perhaps there have been decisions and things he has not seen. Three minutes later there were three Atlético players lying on the ground and not injured. “ Bascombe speaks of “choreographed cynicism of Atlético”, of “ugly match” (by the locals), of “constant interruptions”, of “premature triumphalism” and of coaches who “play two different sports”. In addition, it makes a simile with the film Scarface, by Brian De Palma, in which the coach of Atlético would be the malicious and dark Tony Montana: “Diego Simeone perfectly reproduced the gestures of Tony Montana in the best scenes of Scarface. Simeone against Klopp could be the great duel of the year. ”center_img “There is the second game in our stadium and things will be different. As long as we have eleven players with the Liverpool shirt to play, we will try with all our strength. We will tell you: ‘Welcome to Anfield’ “, warned the German coach.He also explained his decision to switch to Mané: “I was afraid that his opponent would throw himself on the ground just by blowing him and seeing another card,” he said ironically.Some of the Liverpool players followed the same line of Klopp’s speech, and were even more direct:Joe Gomez: “Soccer in Europe is different and arbitration decisions too. It is frustrating, when you give everything and for concrete decisions you get nothing. This is what the technician tells us, we have to compete and if the atmosphere and the reactions of the public or the referee interfere, we have to try not to harm us in the field. We have fallen lower and we have risen from more difficult situations. ”Van Dijk: “It’s his way of playing and also that of Spanish football and we have to adapt a bit. We knew it and handled it well, “he says in reference to the loss of time and the alleged simulations of Atlético players.Robertson: “Atleti celebrated it as if they had won the tie. Now they have to go to Anfield… ”In line with the statements of Klopp, Robertson, Joe Gómez or Van Dijk, The Telegraph article tries to disqualify the playing style of Atlético and specifically Simeone: “It is unlikely that a team can play consistently with the same intensity as Atlético, which probably explains why Simeone, despite the interest of others teams, has stayed in Madrid trying to achieve the same melody with a new generation of players. Would any elite team or player enjoy watching these tactics every week? Probably not. There is nothing complicated or surprising in how they play (…) ”.last_img read more

When we look back … at all the successful teams we ever had, we had a couple things in common.”We had good goalkeepers, steady defenders, we had creative players, we had tricky wingers, we had goal-scorers and we were exciting to watch.”FIRM IDENTITYHe added: “I think as a footballing nation – which we are now – we’ve always had an identity and we would always go at teams, and play exciting and get the crowd involved in the game with the tricky players that we had, and I can see these similarities in this team.”Trinidad and Tobago entered the CONCACAF World Cup qualifiers at the fourth round and have played unbeaten to date to lead Group C with ten points.They opened their campaign with a crucial 2-1 victory over Guatemala in Guatemala City last November before battling to a nil-all draw with CONCACAF powerhouses, the United States, four days later.Last month, they twice beat fellow Caribbean Football Union side St Vincent and the Grenadines, to take a huge step towards reaching the next round.Latapy, who was part of the historic national side which qualified for the 2006 World Cup in Germany, said it was important that fans and the corporate community, threw their support behind the Warriors.”I’m hoping that we can get a lot of sponsorship for these players and we can give them everything that is needed and wanted in order to have a successful campaign.”T&T resume their qualifying campaign in September with a clash against Guatemala.last_img read more

St. Francis High’s choir cancels tour after theft

first_imgMOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. (AP) — St. Francis High School’s chamber choir singers spent the past year raising $13,000 for their year-end trip, but their plans fizzled when they found out trip organizers stole the money. Just days before their trip to sing with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir in Salt Lake City last week, the students learned they had been fleeced by a Florida-based company that organized the trip for St. Francis and dozens of other high school choirs, said choir director Margaret Durando. “We all feel like we ran into a brick wall, and there’s nothing we can do about it,” Durando said. Details of the theft remained sketchy, and the company’s owner could not be reached for comment. Most of the students lost $400 to $500 each, she said. The trip would have been the first out of state for the Catholic school choir. “We’ve done local performances and competitions, but this was our big thing,” said Douglas Gibson, a St. Francis choir member. “A whole lot of work went into it.” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
