Raúl summons Rodrygo

first_imgAfter not being summoned by Zidane in four of the last five games of the first team (the last four in a row), Rodrygo returns to a Castilla that still aspires to playoff. The white subsidiary is six points from the fourth position, which occupies the Peña Deportiva. The Brazilian only played two games under Raul before breaking into the first team to stay. It was there for the month of September, on the fourth day against Langreo (0-0) and on the sixth against Rayo Majadahonda (3-1). Both in a Di Stéfano that this Sunday will be able to follow his evolutions and those of the newcomer Reinier.The regulations allow Rodrygo to return to Castilla despite having played 12 league games with the first team. The paulista is registered with Raúl’s team, since at the beginning of the season there were no chips available in the first team and, despite Odriozola’s departure in the winter market, the club has not modified his situation. Being a dependent team (that is the term used by the General Regulation), you can act with the first team and with Castilla without any limitation until you play with both the same day. This Sunday will carry the eleven of Castilla behind.Call of Castilla for the match against SanseGoalkeepers: Altube and Toni Fuidias.Defenses: Fran García, Chust, Guillem, Javi Hernández and Gila.Midfielders: Martín, Ayoub, Fidalgo, Bravo, Blanco, Baeza, Reinier and Arribas.Forwards: Marc Gual, Rodrygo and Pablo. Rodrygo returns to Castilla. Almost five months later, Raúl has called the player again to play with the Real Madrid subsidiary. The Brazilian will play Cicerone of his countryman Reinier, who will debut with the white shirt in this Sunday’s game (17:00, Real Madrid TV) against the Sanse colista.last_img read more

Chertoff denounces fake news conference

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREGame Center: Chargers at Kansas City Chiefs, Sunday, 10 a.m.“I have made unambiguously clear, in Anglo-Saxon prose, that it is not to ever happen again and there will be appropriate disciplinary action taken against those people who exhibited what I regard as extraordinarily poor judgment,” he added. Asked specifically if he planned to fire anyone at FEMA, which is part of his department, Chertoff declined to say, citing personnel rules. Chertoff said he knew nothing about the matter until after it happened and that he “can’t explain why it happened.” The White House on Friday scolded FEMA for the faux press conference about assistance to victims of wildfires in southern California. The agency – much maligned for its sluggish response to Hurricane Katrina over two years ago – arranged to have FEMA employees play the part of reporters at the event Tuesday and question Vice Adm. Harvey E. Johnson, the deputy director. By Devlin Barrett THE ASSOCIATED PRESS WASHINGTON – The homeland security chief on Saturday tore into his own employees for staging a phony news conference at the Federal Emergency Management Agency. “I think it was one of the dumbest and most inappropriate things I’ve seen since I’ve been in government,” Michael Chertoff said. The questions were soft and gratuitous. “I’m very happy with FEMA’s response,” Johnson said in reply to one query from an agency employee. FEMA gave reporters only 15 minutes’ notice about Tuesday’s news conference. But because of the short notice, the agency made available an 800 number so reporters could call in. Johnson said in a statement Friday that FEMA’s goal was “to get information out as soon as possible and in trying to do so we made an error in judgment.” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Eight Championship stars PL clubs could sign including Sissoko, Taylor and Ayew

first_img 8 Moussa Sissoko, midfielder: Newcastle star’s Euro showing put him in the shop window? Click the arrow, above right, to see which players may swap the Championship for the Premier League – The Magpies man impressed for France at Euro 2016 – most notably in the Stade de France final. Rafa Benitez and the St James’ Park hierarchy are determined to retain the 26-year-old by setting a £35m asking price. Sissoko has scored 11 goals, laying on 17 assists, in 118 Premier League appearances and has been linked with Everton, Liverpool and Tottenham as well as German club Borussia Dortmund. 8 8 8 8 Jordan Ayew, forward: Jordan to leave Aston Villa and join brother Andre in the Premier League? – The 24-year-old moved to the Midlands last summer from Lorient, scoring 12 goals as the Villans failed to avoid the drop. He ended the season in red-hot form, scoring four goals in his last three Premier League matches, carrying it into pre-season with a brace in the 8-0 win over GAK Graz. According to the Express and Star, Ayew is in ‘no rush’ to leave Villa Park but the outlet reports he is a target for Southampton. Ross McCormack, forward: Fulham striker to finally get Premier League chance? – Scottish striker McCormack has proved his ability in the Championship over the years, bagging 116 goals in 309 appearances, laying on 56 assists. Like his transfer from Leeds to Fulham in 2014, which reportedly cost £11m, he will not come cheap. Championship rivals Norwich are said to be readying a £13m offer and he could attract interest from clubs in the bottom half of the Premier League. Jeff Hendrick, midfielder: Euro showing to earn the Derby County man a move? – Republic of Ireland international Hendrick caught the eye as Martin O’Neill’s men stormed to the last 16 of Euro 2016. The 24-year-old, who has two years to run on his contract, has more than 200 senior Rams appearances to his name and he was reportedly subject to a recent bid from Burnley. The Clarets could yet return with an improved offer, doubling their £3million opening bid. Charlie Taylor, left-back: Another Leeds United academy product to leave Elland Road? – After Lewis Cook’s departure to Bournemouth, Whites fans are now worried about losing their 22-year-old full-back, too. He became a reliable player in United’s team last season, making 43 appearances. Despite links with newcomers Middlesbrough and Burnley, the Leeds academy graduate is currently out with Garry Monk’s squad in Ireland for pre-season. The new Premier League season is upon us and teams are adding to their ranks. Preparations are well underway, with clubs tackling gruelling pre-season training and flying around the world for friendly matches. Vast amounts of money is being spent to recruit players from overseas, but Leicester City have showed you can find a lower-league gem who can hold his own in the top tier. Jamie Vardy, signed from non-league football when the Foxes were in the second tier, fired Claudio Ranieri’s men to the title last season.The Championship will welcome a number of Premier League stars from Newcastle United, Aston Villa and Norwich City, along with those up and coming players. Big-money moves has already seen players going the other way such as Matt Ritchie and Dwight Gayle going to Newcastle. So which players are worth a gamble?Click the arrow, above right, to see who makes our list of eight players who could be heading to the Premier League. Georginio Wijnaldum, midfielder – Newcastle United man to stay in the Premier League? – The Dutchman moved to St James’ Park from PSV Eindhoven for a reported £14.5million last year and he went on to score 13 goals in 48 appearances for club and country. Of those goals, he shocked Fantasy Premier League bosses by netting four times in the club’s 6-2 win against Norwich. Wijnaldum is one of the bigger earners and has been linked with Spurs, but owner Mike Ashley does not appear to be in a rush to clear the wage bill. 8 8 8 Jonathan Kodjia, forward: Swapping Bristol City for a Premier League club? – The 26-year-old striker only moved to Ashton Gate last summer – from Angers – but he soon found his feet in the Championship, firing 18 goals in 45 appearances to steer the Robins clear of relegation. He has been linked with Aston Villa in recent days, but the Ivory Coast international could be seen as a cheaper option for Premier League clubs. Lewis Dunk, defender: Has the Brighton centre-back earned his chance in the big time? – The 24-year-old is reportedly attracting Premier League interest, with Everton and Crystal Palace among those clubs linked. He has made more than 150 appearances for the Seagulls and will not come cheap, with the Mirror reporting in June that Albion have set a £10million asking price. last_img read more

DD Gardening: The Importance of planting a hedging

first_imgHave you considered planting a hedge in your garden? If you have then Donegal Daily’s horticulture specialist Conor Gallinagh gives you the low down on the steps you need to take below. A hedge, in my opinion, benefits the garden in these ways.Creates a backdrop or framework to work from for the rest of your garden.Provides shelter to the garden and houseCreates an ecosystem for wildlifeThe bareroot season is an ideal time to plant your hedge. Of old it was defined as any month with an ‘R’. As our climate changes the season has drawing shorter normally now from November to Mid-April. Advertisement So we still have some time left to get that hedge planted or even begin planning for the next season.Bareroot simple means that the plant is dormant and without a growing medium i.e. roots exposed.Donegal proves to be a difficult county to grow plants. Going from windswept coastal garden’s to bog covered lands to fertile valleys all within a couple of kilometres of each other.The soils greatly dictate the variety best suited as well as the climate and client’s personal taste also play a role. Advertisement Here are some of my recommendation for the different locations that can be found.Fertile Soils in Lowlands Beech – Fagus sylvatica This forms into a really beautiful natural hedge. In non-windswept areas, the dormant leaves will cling on over the winter to give a beautiful bronze effect. The glossy light green leaves unfold from pointed buds in spring and as the season transforms they darken to a richer green hue.Fertile Soils Highland. (Evergreen hedge) Common Laurel – Prunus laurocerasusA reliable classic evergreen hedge. Can withstand a range of soils and environments. The long dark glossy leaves remain throughout the year. Forms into a tight compact hedge.Poor Soils Hornbeam – Carpinus betulus This species is often confused with beech as it has a similar leaf and growth habitat. Look a little closer and you will see deep groves or ridges running through the leaves, unlike the smooth beech leaf. It’s also missing the distinctive pointed orange-red buds of Beech. Unlike the Beech as well the Hornbeam will grow quite successfully on poor or less fertile soils. Coastal HedgeGriselinia littoralisThe foliage has a rubber texture and completely smooth which it makes it very suitable for the salt-laden breeze along the coast. An evergreen with light green smooth leaves. Does well in sandy soils.Biodiversity Hedge Hawthorn – Crataegus monogynaUsing Hawthorn as your base plant, interplant with species of Holly, Wild Cherry, Guelder Rose and Dogrose. This will provide a hedge where an ecosystem should thrive in and also provide interest all year round.A Bit Different Perhaps you’re looking for something that little bit different. The Photina varieties, in particular, ‘Red Robin’ or ‘Magical Volcano’ could be an option.In my opinion, the new variety ‘Magical Volcano’ has the potential to make a wonderful hedge. The bright red juvenile foliage with its crinkled edging is a real eye-catcher.It also has a much denser growing habitat than its counterparts. One to watch for sure.Boxwood Alternative With Buxus sempervirens suffering from various disease and becoming a little bit old fashioned, the search is on to find an alternative.The Ilex crenata, in my opinion, seems to be a suitable replacement. A similar leaf structure, growth habit and shape. Seems to match up the criteria well.Just remember that the end of the bareroot is coming in fast. Once it ends my recommendation is to hold off until it starts in November again.Use the time in between to plan the area, choose the species you wish to grow and order them in advance as well.Any questions on this column or looking for further advice either send me an email at cghorticultureconsultant@gmail.com or message me over on my Facebook page Conor Gallinagh – Horticulture Consultant.Happy Gardening!DD Gardening: The Importance of planting a hedging was last modified: March 24th, 2019 by Conor GallinaghShare 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:Conor Gallinaghdd gardeninghorticulturelast_img read more
