Fans can’t believe Gerard Pique’s tackle during Morocco game wasn’t reviewed

first_imgHow Pique got away with that. Amazing. Two footed, studs showing. Fair to say standard of refereeing has been mixed at the #WorldCup— tariq panja (@tariqpanja) June 25, 2018 That has to be a red card on Piqué. Off the ground, studs up.— Jonas Giæver (@CheGiaevara) June 25, 2018 Spain edged to a 2-2 draw against their north African opponents Spain edged into the last 16 of the World Cup after salvaging a last-minute draw to Morocco.Iago Aspas cancelled out Youssef En-Nesyri’s bullet header after Khalid Boutaib and Isco’s goals saw the teams make it 1-1 at half-time. talkSPORT are with listeners all day and all night at this year’s 2018 FIFA World Cup™ with over 800 hours of World Cup content and all 64 games live across the talkSPORT network. Pique escapes a clear red card offence. Portugal conceed an extremely dubious penalty. VAR has singlehandedly put Spain through to the quarterfinals. What an absolute disgrace of an evening for world football. Embarrassing. #WorldCup #IRNPOR #SPAMOR #VAR— Kallum Astle (@KallumAstle) June 25, 2018 Pique’s challenge left Boutaib in a heap The referee could’ve given red card Pique and yellow carded Ramos but he’s given 4 yellows to 4 Moroccans instead. Some tough challenges but that’s not balanced.— Taintless Red (@TaintlessRed) June 25, 2018 What is Piqué doing coming in 2-footed like that? Couple of wildly uncharacteristic plays by him in this World Cup.— Grant Wahl (@GrantWahl) June 25, 2018 It was a game full of passion as Spain looked to get themselves over the line and into the knockout stages while Morocco were hell-bent on getting some kind of result for their terrific efforts at the 2018 World Cup.However, when passions run high, tensions begin to spill over and there were a few nasty challenges that referee Ravshan Irmatov should have taken more action with.Younes Belhanda’s first-half stamp on Andres Iniesta could have spelled trouble for the Atlas Lions player.But it was a tackle earlier in the game from Gerard Pique on Boutaib which really set the tone for a physical game and many fans felt aggrieved for Herve Renard’s men as the centre back’s two-footed lunge was not subject to a VAR review. If Pepe had of made that Pique 2 footed tackle he would have been sent for a shower 🔴— Matthew Rusike (@Mattyrusike) June 25, 2018 Pique should be sent off. That was studs up. VAR for who?#ESPMAR @FIFAcom— muhammad mansoor (@mmansoor10) June 25, 2018 Had this happened then Pique might have been given his marching orders which could have completely changed the course of the game.Below you can see the best tweets reacting to the incident involving Barcelona man. Pique should’ve been sent off. When will the refs treat the small sides fairly?— Babak Golriz (@BabakGolriz) June 25, 2018 2 2 So how have the VAR people not told the ref to look at Pique? I don’t get that.— Empire of the Kop (@empireofthekop) June 25, 2018last_img read more

Angels: Angels face a Big challenge

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREThe top 10 theme park moments of 2019 Not surprisingly, not many Angels have hit him well during their careers. Garret Anderson is 3 for 18; Darin Erstad is 5 for 20 with one homer; Vladimir Guerrero is 6 for 30 with two homers. Orlando Cabrera, the Game 2 hero, is an exception, hitting .364 (8 for 22) against Johnson in his career. To make matters worse for the Angels, Johnson is pitching better now than he has all season. He hasn’t lost since Aug. 21, going 6-0 with a 1.93 ERA in his last eight starts. He was 0-0 with a 5.40 ERA in two starts against the Angels this year, but those starts came during a 10-day period in July. “I think the reports when we saw him in the summer, he wasn’t throwing the ball as well as he’s thrown it down the stretch,” Angels manager Mike Scioscia said. “I don’t think there’s anybody that doesn’t see that Randy is throwing the ball to his capability now and it’s come at a great time for the Yankees. “It’s going to be a challenge. He’s a challenge no matter if he has great stuff or not. He’s going out there with great stuff now, and you can see how well he’s pitched recently for those guys.” Johnson went 17-8 with a 3.79 ERA in his first season with the Yankees, signing with George Steinbrenner’s team with one goal in mind – to win the World Series. But he heard boos early in the season as he struggled, causing some to wonder if he was finished at age 42. NEW YORK – Don’t look now, but the “Big Diesel Freight Train” is fueling up for a head-on collision with the “Little Engine That Could.” Yankees pitcher Randy Johnson is better known as the “Big Unit,” but Angels pitcher Paul Byrd used the locomotive analogy when asked to compare Johnson to himself. The two pitchers with contrasting styles will hook up tonight in the pivotal Game 3 of the American League Division Series at Yankee Stadium, with the series tied, 1-1. “That’s like comparing (Chone) Figgins and Bengie (Molina) running,” Byrd said of his showdown with the Yankees’ ace. “I’m not going to overpower people, I’m going to change speeds, I’m going to work the corners and try to keep you off-balance. He has more of an intimidating style where he tries to overpower you, and he’s got that really nice complement of a hard fastball and then a nasty slider that breaks at the back leg (of the hitter). It’s as different or contrasting styles as there could possibly be.” Johnson once accidentally killed a bird with a pitch in spring training, but the Angels’ Byrd won’t have to get into the batter’s box like his teammates. Johnson is 15-6 with a 2.93 ERA in 29 career starts against the Angels, mostly while he was with the Seattle Mariners. center_img “Obviously, I’m not happy with the ups and downs that I had, but I think any pitcher out there that didn’t win 17 games would love to have 17 wins. It’s funny that we say I had an off-year, and still won 17 games. “I understand I’m here to get this team over the top, and with that, there’s no making mistakes.” The Angels’ hitters aren’t exactly going into tonight’s game hitting well in the series, regardless of the pitcher, particularly three of their most important bats. Anderson is 0 for 8, Figgins is 0 for 8 and Guerrero is 1 for 6 with a single. Guerrero has only one home run in his past 52 at-bats, going back to Sept. 15. “We need Garret and we need Vlad and we need Figgy to set the tone,” Scioscia said. “You’re not going to have every guy in the lineup swinging the bat well at the same time. But when we talk about the middle of the lineup, especially Garret and Vlad, we absolutely are going to need offense from them if we’re going to get by in this series.” Truth is, neither team has hit well because both teams have pitched well in the first two games. The Angels are hitting .219 as a team, the Yankees .227. The Yankees’ trio of Derek Jeter, Alex Rodriguez and Gary Sheffield are a combined 4 for 21, all four hits being singles. “They are two ballgames that have been pitched very well,” Yankees manager Joe Torre said. “The last time we faced them back in 2002, we didn’t pitch well at all. The postseason is all about how well you pitch. There’s very few games you’re going to try to outscore the opposition. “But we need to dominate. We need to control the game with pitching, because if you don’t, with their type of offense, they can be distracting and do a lot of things. We’ve been fortunate, we’ve kept Figgins off the bases, and that’s given us a chance to win.” Joe Haakenson, (626) 962-8811 joe.haakenson@sgvn.com 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

GDP estimate cut, but still best since ’04

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORERose Parade grand marshal Rita Moreno talks New Year’s Day outfit and ‘West Side Story’ remake “The bottom line is that we had a very strong quarter of growth,” said David Wyss, chief economist at Standard & Poor’s in New York. Wyss said he believes the hurricanes shaved about one-half of a percentage point from growth in the third quarter, having less of an impact than economists had originally feared. The Bush administration, which has been trying to highlight the economy’s strengths as a way to bolster the president’s approval ratings, said the 4.1 percent GDP growth rate was evidence of a vibrant economy. “The economy demonstrated its resilience in the last several months,” said Commerce Secretary Carlos Gutierrez. On Wall Street, the Dow Jones industrial average was up 28.18 points to close at 10,833.73. WASHINGTON – The U.S. economy grew at the fastest pace in 1“ years in the summer as booming auto sales offset the adverse effects of hurricanes Katrina and Rita. But the year is expected to end with much slower growth. The Commerce Department reported Wednesday that the gross domestic product, the broadest measure of economic health, grew at a 4.1 percent annual rate from July through September. That was down from a 4.3 percent estimate made a month ago, but it was still the fastest pace since early 2004. The gain was even more remarkable in light of the hurricane devastation and gasoline prices that topped $3 per gallon. Analysts believe growth has slowed substantially in the current quarter – to between 3 percent and 3.5 percent – reflecting slower increases in consumer spending. The slowdown includes a slump in auto sales, reflecting falling popularity for some sport utility vehicles after consumers were reminded how gasoline prices could soar. Asha Bangalore, an economist at Northern Trust Co. in Chicago, forecast that consumer spending would slow significantly to a growth rate of just 0.5 percent in the current quarter. Consumer spending accounts for two-thirds of total economic activity. While rebuilding in the hurricane areas will offset some of the slowdown in consumer demand, analysts don’t expect that stimulus to be felt until next year, given the delays in reconstruction efforts. Nigel Gault, an economist at Global Insight, a private forecasting firm in Lexington, Mass., said that in addition to a drop-off in consumer spending, the economy will be held back by a surging trade deficit, which has hit records in recent months. “Robust industrial production growth suggests inventories are being rebuilt, which will dampen any slowdown,” he added. An inflation gauge tied to the GDP rose at a rate of 3.7 percent in the third quarter, the fastest pace in more than a year and up from a 3.3 percent rate of increase in the second quarter. However, excluding food and energy, the GDP inflation measure was up a more moderate 1.4 percent, the slowest increase in almost two years but higher than the month-ago estimate of 1.2 percent. Some analysts said the slight upward revision in inflation would keep the Federal Reserve tightening interest rates, with at least two more moves forecast in January and March. “It is never a happy day for the Fed when GDP is revised down, and inflation is revised up (from estimates),” said Stephen Stanley, chief economist at RBS Greenwich Capital. The economy’s growth in the third quarter had originally been estimated at 3.8 percent, a figure that was revised up to 4.3 percent last month and now revised down to 4.1 percent. The latest downward revisions reflected slightly lower estimates in several categories, including consumer spending, business investment and housing construction. The GDP report also showed that the profits of U.S. companies from current production fell by $54.4 billion in the third quarter, compared with an increase of $59.3 billion in the second quarter. Profits were cut by $165.3 billion at an annual rate from the estimated effects of Katrina and Rita, which required higher payouts by domestic insurance companies and also depressed profits at companies hit with uninsured losses.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Locals say they have contacted both Donegal County Council and Irish Water but nothing has been done about the situation.Local businessman and father-of-two Charlie McClafferty said the situation is simply not acceptable.He said the local supply from Gartan Lake is fed through a reservoir and the treated but the entire system needs to be overhauled.He revealed locals are due to meet with Irish Water in the coming weeks with a view to taking over the scheme. Unlike many others, Mr McClafferty, a publican and local undertaker, says many of the 700 or so households affected by the brown water would not mind paying for their water.“The reality is that the average household here is now paying around €1,000 for bottled water.“I have talked to many and they would not mind paying for water if the water is of a good quality. What people are being asked to drink and bath in now is nothing short of a disgrace,” he said.The quality of water was independently test and the results showed it was not fit for human consumption.Local woman Rose McGettigan says her sister has just returned to live in the village and is being forced to buy bottled water to make up her baby’s drinking bottles. Her sister turned on the tap this week to bath her 11 week old son and was horrified by what came out.She said the situation has been going on for months and are being forced to spend a small fortune on bottle water.“I simply don’t know how they can expect people to live like this and have this quality of water in 2015.“My sister and her children are expected to bath in this water and use it for feeding bottles. It’s just disgraceful. “How can a little baby be expected to take a bath is what looks like bog water. God knows what is in the water.“They have now been forced to buy bottled water which is expensive but they simply have no choice,” she said.WATER CRISIS – RESIDENTS IN CHURCHILL AND GLENDOWAN SPENDING €1,000 ON BOTTLED WATER was last modified: September 15th, 2015 by StephenShare 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:donegalGlendowanIrish Watrm Churchillwaterlast_img read more
