The spirit of the matagigantes – AS.com

first_imgIt was late yesterday in Madrid when Liverpool returned where last season was proclaimed champion of the Champions. The Metropolitan A stadium that tonight will try to snatch the You’ll never walk alone to swell with courage the legs of its players, this Atleti that this February is at the same point as the previous one: forced to play the eighth of the Champions League against the European coconut. A year ago it was called Juve de Cristiano. This one sounds even worse, a lot. Liverpool of Klopp. And from Alisson, Van Dijk, Fabinho, Firmino, Salah, Mané. The current champion. If names scare you even more, their numbers do. Like open jaws over the rest of Europe (follow the match live on As.com).Because this Liverpool of Klopp is even better than the one that last June stepped on the Metropolitan to beat the Tottenham. Undisputed leader of the Premier, with 76 points, 25 more than the second, the City. He has only given a draw in 26 games, 26 games with 25 wins, the last 17 in a row. With 61 goals scored (2.44 per game) and only 15 conceded (0.6). Because if that happens in your league, the rest is the same: only two defeats in the season, against Naples in the Champions League and against Aston Villa in EFL Cup (who played with team C). 42 games played, 36 wins and four draws. And more emphatic than numbers are sensations. Because that is the greatest strength of this Liverpool. Klopp has built an almost indestructible team, of solid foundations based on solidarity, group and intensity. On each ball, each play. And without casualties. Even Mané, injured on January 23 against Wolverhampton, is recovered to play against an Atleti who has been obsessed with this game for three months. The season goes through these eighths. And nothing makes him more favorite than not. He fed that spirit that he so often showed in the Champions League. Juve last year, Bayern in 2016, Chelsea in 2014, twice at Barça de Neymar, Messi and Suarez. In seven qualifiers he was, a priori, vulnerable and four took them. Giant slayer. The fans have spent days mobilizing to Spanishize the You’ll never walk alone Y dressing the Metropolitan of what old Calderón was tonight. Cholo’s plansIf Klopp’s eleven seems clear, Gomez-Van Dijk behind, with Fabinho pivot, accompanied by Henderson and Wijnaldum, and the trident above, Simeone has not given any clue to his plan. A plan that could be a carbon copy of last season, against Juve, with Costa titular as a surprise. A Coast that returns to the list, 19, and that seems fundamental, whether it plays or not, whether it is worse or better: its fury infects. But Costa, operated on a cervical disc herniation in November, may not yet be in shock.. Without João, Herrera and Trippier, the idea of ​​Cholo may be to repeat the Mestalla (quadruple with Correa and Vitolo pointed) or give ownership to Morata, his best footballer. Or maybe give the left-handed side to Hermoso and not Lodi, That is why Liverpool suffers without spaces or concessions and this is a 180 ‘game and not just 90’. These first in which the team of never stop believing, insurance, will not walk alone. Never never never.last_img read more

Disappointment over Councillors’ no-show at Cathedral Quarter meeting

first_imgThe Letterkenny Cathedral Quarter committee held a meeting last night to discuss the success of the group with local councillors and future plans to rejuvenate the heart of the town.It was a major let-down, however, when nobody turned up.The Letterkenny Cathedral Quarter was established in 2014 to restore the Church Lane off the Main Street and improve prosperity in the area. They have held culture events and festivals, installed artwork and created maps and tours to drive visitors to the area. They have also planned a number of Christmas events involving various community groups. Letterkenny Cathedral QuarterA meeting was arranged in Dillon’s Hotel Letterkenny on Tuesday night to showcase the progress of the initiative to Letterkenny Municipal Council members and to seek support for the future.The meeting had to be abandoned when no representatives appeared.Committee Secretary Donnan Harvey said invites were emailed to all Councillors prior to the meeting and he spoke with several on the phone who confirmed their attendance.On the night, however, the representatives were said to have attended a meeting in Galway and were late back. “But how hard is to pick up a phone to tell us, you can’t make the meeting,” Donnan said.A statement from the Cathedral Quarter Committee said: “We are very disappointed with this no show, we work on a voluntary capacity to regenerate the area for the community.“All we are asking for is a bit of support from our elected representatives but unfortunately, that didn’t happen tonight. They have not matched our commitment to our project which aims to develop an area for locals and visitors to enjoy to stimulate business and create jobs.” Disappointment over Councillors’ no-show at Cathedral Quarter meeting was last modified: November 22nd, 2017 by Rachel McLaughlinShare 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:letterkenny cathedral quarterlast_img read more

2018 Chevy Volt Is A Winner But This Guy Cites One Major

first_imgFor years, we’ve heard mostly positive words about the Chevy Volt and this is perhaps the first time we’ve heard this new complaint.The Chevy Volt is (and has been) known as the plug-in EV that offers an impressive amount of all-electric range (53 EPA-rate miles) before its gas engine kicks in. In fact, there is still not another plug-in hybrid electric vehicle on the market today that can match it. The Honda Clarity Plug-In Hybrid is the first to come close and the Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid fares pretty well, for a minivan. But still, the Volt remains in the lead. Nonetheless, this YouTuber wants more electric range. Maybe he should have considered buying a BEV? Or, should he be driving the car differently, and especially not racing down the highway at 85 mph?Other Chevrolet Volt Stories: We felt compelled to share this video (make sure you have a look at the YouTube the comments as well) to show that there is still a huge lack of education out there about electric cars. People are unaware about regenerative braking/driving modes, how speed impacts range, why a PHEV is not going to offer the electric range of a BEV, etc.Essentially, Jeremy Judkins is impressed with his new Volt. He says it’s a stepping stone to pure electric car ownership. He’s especially happy with its mpge and initial projected electric range. However, as he jumps on the freeway and drives really fast, that mpge and range deplete rapidly. He seems surprised by this reality and considers it a flaw.Several YouTube commenters try to help him out by making multiple suggestions: he shouldn’t speed, he should use the gas engine on the freeway, he should adjust the driving mode, he should drive the car differently to maximize its range potential, and on and on. Clearly, aside from a comment here or there, these people don’t really get it. In addition, while it seems like Jeremy may be starting to get it, we’re not quite sure he’s got it all figured out yet either.We’re aware we have many readers that are Volt owners. Perhaps we can give him a bit of advice in the comment section below?Video Description via Jeremy Judkins on YouTube:2018 Chevy Volt : 3 Months Later | The ONE thing I hate about itI found one issue with the Chevy Volt… it’s not a deal breaker, but I thought I would point it out for those also interested in the car.
