Cifuentes saved Cádiz “in extremis” three points this season

first_imgThe old rockers never die, and this expression not by manida ceases to be applicable and in force to the most veteran goal of the League. At forty, Alberto Cifuentes is still a kid, something that shows match after match. For the Second leader, the good work of the Manchego goal has directly reported three points this season. Before Málaga and, more recently, this past weekend against Ponferradina, his interventions in the last two matches saved a victory and a draw. Without these stops, Almería would lick the cogote to the yellow team, to the point of being only two points out of the five that it now enjoys.True is that Álvaro Cervera has brought his maxim to excellence that a good attack always implies a better defense. His team has built a very difficult framework to overcome for their rivals. Only Huesca follows in rhythm in conceded goals, 19 each, but we must bear in mind that four of them were received by Cádiz in the match against Numancia. Cifuentes does not usually get burdened in matches, but when he intervenes it is usually providential, as happened in Malaga and Ponferrada. Cifuentes seems to have no end. Keep training as you play, with unusual freshness and security. For this reason, it is normal for the club to renew until 2021 in the past month of September. Along the way, an ascent to Second and another that is working towards First with providential interventions. He has rope for a while.

And last saturday against Ponferradina, he had several important stops but none like the one he made to Yuri in the ’89 minute, which was undoubtedly one of his most spectacular interventions in the 188 games he has played to date with the elastic of Cádiz.last_img read more

Kante, Jorginho and Pedro fire Chelsea to opening game win at Huddersfield

first_img 4 4 STAR MAN – PedroIn all honesty, no Chelsea player stood far out from the bunch against Huddersfield. The Blues weren’t at the races for much of the first period and, despite improving later on, were still not displaying top form. Pedro put in a solid shift on the wings and rounded off the win with a finely-taken goal.MOMENT OF THE MATCHThe goal that ultimately killed the game has to be Jorginho’s penalty. Huddersfield had performed well in the first half and felt hard done by to be behind. A 15 minute break could have allowed them to regroup and come again in the second 45, however Christopher Schindler fouled Marcos Alonso and Jorginho doubled Chelsea’s lead just before the break.LINE UPSHuddersfield: Hamer, Jorgensen, Schindler, Kongolo, Hadergjonaj, Mooy, Hogg, Billing, Lowe, Pritchard, Mounie.Chelsea: Arrizabalaga, Azpilicueta, Luiz, Rudiger, Alonso, Barkley, Kante, Jorginho, Willian, Morata, Pedro. The game began in underwhelming fashion for the Blues who appeared to be struggling to get to grips with Maurizio Sarri’s style of play.Chelsea had plenty of possession, but created few chances until Willian drove down the left after 34 minutes and smashed a ball across the box which was volleyed home by N’Golo Kante. 4 4 World Cup winner Kante returned to score the Blues’ opener Three minutes later, the Terriers came within inches of an equaliser. A corner from the right was flicked on at the near post by Mathias Jorgensen only for Steve Mounie to head against the far stanchion from close range.With just two minutes until half-time, a flick from Ross Barkley played Marcos Alonso in behind the Huddersfield defence. This drew a desperate challenge out of Christopher Schindler and caused referee Chris Kavanagh to point to the spot.Jorginho stepped up, calmly stroked the ball past Ben Hamer and gave Chelsea a 2-0 half-time lead which was flattering to say the least. Jorginho’s penalty was finished in a collected fashion Kante’s volley looped over Hamer after being driven down into the ground It was all smiles for Chelsea after Pedro secured the victory Chelsea ran out 3-0 winners at Huddersfield in their first game of the new Premier League season on Saturday.Maurizio Sarri enjoyed a fruitful competitive debut as the side’s manager, with player debutants Jorginho and Kepa Arrizabalaga also getting off to positive starts in the division. In the second period, Sarri’s side started far brighter than in the first, with two early corners nearly producing goals as Antonio Rudiger and Marcos Alonso went close.With just over ten minutes remaining, a classic Blues counter attack saw substitute Eden Hazard carry the ball forward before releasing Pedro, who beautifully dinked the ball over Hamer to wrap up the three points.last_img read more

Senate OKs $60 billion bill that would extend tax cuts

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWalnut’s Malik Khouzam voted Southern California Boys Athlete of the Week “Millions of Americans have benefited from these important tax policies either directly through lower taxes or indirectly through new and better jobs and greater economic security for families,” said Treasury Secretary John Snow. Democrats roundly oppose extending tax cuts for investment income. Senate leaders dropped an extension from their bill because a key moderate Republican balked at its inclusion. The bill would stop a tax increase on about 14 million families in line to pay the alternative minimum tax next year. Originally a levy to prevent the wealthy from avoiding taxation, inflation causes the alternative minimum tax to reach into the pockets of more families every year. Lawmakers regularly enact walls to hold it back. Senate Republicans beat back Democratic attempts to use the bill to pinch oil and energy companies that have been reporting record profits while consumers pay high gasoline prices, efforts that reflected sensitivity on Capitol Hill to high gasoline prices and fears of skyrocketing home heating costs this winter. The largest oil companies, nevertheless, would be hit with about $4.3 billion in taxes through a change in accounting methods. That provision drew a veto threat from the White House and upset some Western Republicans, who deemed it an unfair and political attack on the energy industry. “Is it a windfall tax by another name?” said Sen. Larry Craig, R-Idaho. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! WASHINGTON – The Senate passed a $60 billion bill early today that would extend expiring tax cuts and prevent roughly 14 million families from paying higher taxes through the alternative minimum tax. It drew a presidential veto threat for raising taxes on oil companies. Much of the bill, passed 64-33 after midnight, preserves tax cuts approved in previous years that are set to expire unless lawmakers keep them alive. “I call this bill the ‘Tax Increase Prevention Act,”‘ said Sen. Rick Santorum, R-Pa. Senate GOP leaders pledged that when the bill returns to the Senate for final approval, it will also extend the life of reduced tax rates for capital gains and dividends, scheduled to end when the calendar flips to 2009. last_img read more

DD Motoring: Cruising in the all-new seven-seater SEAT Tarraco

first_imgThis week Donegal Daily’s Brian McDaid is looking at Seat and their latest offering with their new SUV the Tarraco courtesy of DMG motors outside Donegal Town.With a starting price of a very competitive €34,000 approx, our test seven-seater SUV was nearer the top end of the range weighing in around the €39,000 mark.Cruising past Biddy’s Advertisement Before I got as far as Biddys on the way from DMG Motors to Letterkenny through Barnes Mor Gap, I had the Tarraco in cruise control and in this setting, I had chosen it was tracking the car’s progress in front of me and was automatically keeping a very safe distance between us.The model was also giving me a gentle reminder with a vibration through the steering wheel any time that I drifted over the lines at the edge or the centre of the road.Add to this the beautiful seven-speed DSG automatic gearbox which can be changed to five different driving modes ranging from Sport Ecco, Snow, off-road and normal mode.I was in Ecco mode and the indicator shows this SUV making it way up through the gears as we made our way through the gap. Advertisement American PieThe Digital Audio Broadcast Radio (DAB) picked up the BBC reception from Radio 2 and on it a version of Don McClean’s song ‘American Pie’ which just invited you to turn the radio up a bit, Two girls were singing the classic in perfect harmony.This just added to the feeling of comfort and luxury inside this well-appointed interior.The 148 BHP engine fitted in our Seat Terraco which we tested this week. Photo Brian McDaid.There is paddle shifts neatly placed behind the steering wheel if you feel the need to change the gearbox up or down yourself, but only a few miles into my journey, I thought I’d let the DSG gearbox do the work while I sat back and enjoy the comforts on offer.Good Looks There is something very stylish about this new Seat maybe it’s even better looking than the equivalent version from its parent company, VW.Even when it was parked up beside the top of the range Audi the headlights cluster looked very alike on both.Striking similarities in the our Seat Terraco and a top of the range 191 Audi Quattro parked beside each other in a car park . Photo Brian McDaid.The is all good news for Seat when everyone is always on the lookout for style as well as all the practicality that this four wheel drive SUV has to offer.The Tarraco prices start at €34,00 approx and the near top of the range model that we tested was weighing in at €39,000 approx, which is good value for a seven-seater with this level of trim. A great presence on the road the seven seater Tarraco from Seat. Photo Brian McDaid.A full sunroof from front to back was available on our version which is not operated by the red button above the mirror. That Red Button is to make an emergency assistance call from which I accidentally pressed then quickly pressed again to deactivate it. But it is very reassuring to know it is available.Summing UpThe Tarraco from Seat ticks all the boxes for a family on the move who want to explore in all types of weather.A vie of the Interior of the Seat Terraco we drove this week courtesy of DMG motors. Photo Brian McDaid.It is for those who have the benefit of having a few extra seats to bring a few friends of them adventure road trips, and at the same time this vehicle can transform into a very roomy workhorse swallowing up that bulky load or can just be a great easy run family car.A view of the very rear seats in the Tarraco we drove this week.
