Generation Z brake

first_imgAnsu Fati (10-31-2002). 14 games; 442 minutes and 3 goals.Its glittering appearance caused an earthquake back in August. It was 12 minutes against Betis that together with the goals against Osasuna and Valencia drew the appearance of a new star. In December he managed to become the youngest player to score in a Champions League game, but he has only played 34 minutes since November 9 and adds two months without starting. A full stop. It is true that a couple of physical mishaps have conditioned their end of the year, suffering, mainly from discomfort in the patellar tendon, the result of being still in a period of growth. The trident, in addition, has begun to carburize with a Griezmann who has struggled to fit. We will have to see from now on the confidence that his talent receives from Quique Setién. The Generation Z of LaLiga goes through the worst of its moments of the exercise. The young people who started the season willing to hit the table to position themselves as the main characters of the most powerful teams in the competition have entered a twilight phase. It could be seen as that NBA’s own Rookie Wall, when mental and physical consistencies are still not able to regularly wrap the quality and courage that the player in question treasures. Be that as it may Rodrygo and Vinicius do not reach a cruising speed in Real Madrid. João Felix, meanwhile, has returned from the Super Cup in Arabia with the worst face since signing for Atlético. In that tournament Ansu Fati only played two minutes, nine if we attend the last month and a half of Barcelona. Only Ferran Torres in Valencia maintains its strongest version, being indisputable to Celades and providing tangible and intangible hierarchy footballer. Vinicius (12-07-200). 17 games; 735 minutes and 2 goals.His football still offers no convictions to Zidane. His irruption during the final depressive last season at Real Madrid presaged more, but his weakness towards the goal and his inconsistency park him. Thus, the incumbent in the second part of the previous campaign has played a role of agitator in the final parts of the matches. Little for what was foreshadowed. Needs improvement. Rodrygo (9-1-2001). 15 games; 844 minutes and 6 goals.The Brazilian wants to rebel at a time when every minute is gold. Hazard continues to leave. The season began in Castilla and starred in a majestic staging in late October and early November. With Madrid hesitating in the Champions League, he vaccinated the Galatasaray with a hat-trick seconded with the goal opener against Leganés. His goal-to-goal instinct placed him clearly ahead of Vinicius. The low Hazard opened the doors of the eleven, but does not end up being a fixed for Zidane. You need more arguments. The personality with which he threw the penalty in the shootout against Atlético could be one of them.center_img João Felix. (10-11-1999). 21 games; 1,571 minutes and 4 goals.The Portuguese is the most expensive signing in the history of Atlético, an investment that has the club in suspense. He has had a cold and the Super Cup was the most obvious proof of that. His amazing pre-season adventures are in danger of being in fireworks. It transmits signals and sensations of not yet having finished digesting Simeone’s style and, playing everything, does not decide frequently or regularly tilt the matches of the red and white side. It comes on tiptoe in many games, with less frequent flashes. It needs to be activated urgently so as not to suffer the same fate as other talents that have recently gone through the team. There is raw material. Ferran Torres (02-29-2000). 23 games; 1,590 minutes and 4 goals.The exception that confirms the rule. Begins to be a hierarchy player in Valencia, despite his youth. Unquestionable and solid, for Celades it is as important as Rodrigo or Parejo. Just a year ago he achieved his first official goal with the Valencia shirt and his evolution does not stop. Seated, the club will work on a contract extension with which to strengthen one of its pillars of the future.last_img read more

Aussie media slams England ‘tourists masquerading as cricketers’

first_img0Shares0000England’s Jonny Bairstow (L) walks off as Australian players celebrate after defeating England on the final day of the second Ashes Test match in Adelaide © AFP/File / WILLIAM WESTSYDNEY, Australia, Dec 11 – England were dismissed as “tourists masquerading as cricketers” by Australia’s media which turned the screw Monday after Ben Duckett was fined for pouring beer over teammate Jimmy Anderson.Duckett was slapped with a reported £1,500 ($2,000) fine and will play no further part in the remaining England Lions matches following the late-night bar prank in Perth on Thursday. It plunged their already difficult tour into another crisis after wicketkeeper Jonny Bairstow headbutted Australian Test opener Cameron Bancroft in a Perth bar during the tourists’ first night in Australia.That followed star all-rounder Ben Stokes being suspended from the Ashes campaign after an incident outside a Bristol nightclub in September that led to police investigations.England have so far lost the opening two Tests and have their work cut out in the third this week at Perth’s WACA Ground, where they have not beaten Australia since 1978.“These English Contiki tourists masquerading as cricketers are about to seal their places in Ashes infamy,” Sydney Daily Telegraph said on its back page.Contiki is a tour company that caters for younger travellers and has earned a reputation for attracting the booze-filled party crowd.The Telegraph stuck the knife in further with a blazing headline “Perthetic”, adding: “Tour degenerates into farce as rudderless Poms face whitewash.”The Sydney Morning Herald also jumped on the bandwagon, screaming “Teetering on the drink” on its back page in a story that said their Ashes campaign was “again in disarray”.“It is the third time in four months that England’s preparations have been derailed by an alcohol-fuelled incident,” it wrote.– Drinking culture –Earlier in the tour, England cricket chief Andrew Strauss insisted there was no drinking culture in the team, but he still slapped a midnight curfew on the Ashes tour.The Duckett incident happened on the first night that the curfew had been relaxed.The Australian newspaper spared England some of the more strident criticism dished out by other media, and instead ran a story highlighting the drinking on England’s 1986-87 tour to Australia.That side featured the likes of Ian Botham, Allan Lamb and David Gower, who enjoyed a tipple, but they still won the series, and without a curfew.“Mike Gatting’s squad got the job done, winning 2-1 against Allan Border’s side while burning the candle at both ends,” the newspaper said, suggesting that currently England “do not have the troops to hang onto the Ashes urn”.While Australia’s media made the most of England’s problems, coach Darren Lehmann played a much straighter bat on Sunday, saying the alcohol-fuelled indiscretions were no laughing matter.“I’ve been through all that, so no, I don’t have a chuckle at that,” he told reporters.“You have those situations at various stages throughout your career. It’s not funny.“It’s a case of actually making sure you’re trying the best you can to get your side prepared. For me, I don’t have a chuckle at any of that.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Favorite songs refresh aging minds

first_imgPenny Roberts scanned the activities room at Sherman Oaks Health & Rehab Center on Wednesday morning looking for Marilyn. She found her slumped in her wheelchair, head down, eyes closed and completely oblivious to the 30 other seniors, and the program going on around her. “Hi, Marilyn. It’s me, Penny,” the music therapist said, kneeling in front of Marilyn’s wheelchair. A quizzical look spread across the face of the 89-year-old woman suffering from dementia, then a slow smile of recognition. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORE11 theater productions to see in Southern California this week, Dec. 27-Jan. 2She couldn’t remember her 89th birthday had been Tuesday, or that her family had come to celebrate with her. She couldn’t remember how long she had lived here or what she had for breakfast that morning. But when Penny started strumming her guitar in Marilyn’s room a few minutes later, the birthday girl could remember almost every word to the song her mother sang to her 80 years ago when she was a little girl growing up in Brooklyn – “You Are My Sunshine.” Before Wednesday was over, Penny Roberts and her guitar would make five more stops like this one, using music to kindle the light that still burns inside her Alzheimer’s patients, including one man who wants to sing only Bob Marley and Three Dog Night songs. She is one of two full-time music therapists, along with a team of student intern volunteers majoring in music therapy at California State University, Northridge, who visit dozens of Alzheimer’s patients every week for VITAS Hospice Care in Encino. Penny knows each of her seniors’ life stories and favorite songs. She knows their children and grandchildren. She knows their doctors and therapists. And after each song is sung – while they are still smiling and as sharp as they are ever going to be – she gently prods them with questions about how they are feeling, is there anything they need or want to tell her, anything that hurts. Before her seniors retreat into their private worlds again, she will start playing another of their favorite songs to sing along with, filing away in her memory what they have said so she can add it to their medical charts later. What doctors, therapists and even family members might have trouble getting out of an Alzheimer’s patient, an old, favorite song can. “Marilyn may not be able to finish a sentence, but she can sing the words to `Tennessee Waltz’ with me,” Penny said. “It’s a great sense of pride for her to remember these songs.” Music therapy isn’t new. It began after World War I when community musicians went to veterans hospitals to play for thousands of vets suffering both physical and emotional trauma from the war. The vets responded to the music, and by the 1950s colleges were offering music therapy degree programs to train musicians in dealing with developmentally disabled people and dementia patients. As she finishes singing “You Are My Sunshine,” Marilyn reaches out and touches Penny’s knee, laughing. “I got all the words right, isn’t that something?” she said. Then Marilyn talked about growing up in Brooklyn and cooking for her brothers and sisters while her mother worked. “I kept the home fires burning,” she said. “It’s nice here, but it’s not like home. It’s all different now.” Penny nodded and quickly picked up her guitar. Marilyn was going away again. “How about this one?” she said, starting to sing and play “A Bicycle Built For Two.” Marilyn, whose family doesn’t want her last name used, sang with Penny and then told her about the boy she rode a bicycle built for two with back in Brooklyn. “He wouldn’t let me pedal, I don’t know why,” she said, laughing. Half an hour later, Penny pushed Marilyn in her wheelchair to the dining room for lunch. “I hope it was a good day for you,” the music therapist said. “It was a lovely day,” Marilyn said, squeezing her hand.
