Simeone: “João? When it appears to feel for Atlético things go out alone”

first_imgWhat does this Super Cup mean, mid-season: “It is always an opportunity to compete for important things and we value everything. We understand it as an opportunity to continue growing as a club and as a team.”2014 Super Cup: “I remember that moment perfectly, especially because we won. I am happy to be able to be in an important competition that the club has and hopefully we can behave.”Format: “We have to adapt to what the FEF proposes and we seek to solve it. There are semifinals where there was not before and a game that was not there before. We are clear about the concept. Having to travel that did not happen before. Trying to win which is the only thing that will count for the end. “Joao Felix: “Each player has a different personality, each player needs a different time. We try, within the mistake that we will surely make, to succeed in the way of how to reach each one of them, how they live it with enthusiasm, emotion. Apart from having talent they need commitment. When feeling comes because they are playing at Atlético, things go out alone. For João, Savic when he arrived, Koke and Saúl as boys. I don’t speak proper names but rather a way of life. “How do you rate the moment your team arrives and rival tomorrow: “Barcelona has individualities that can break any job and we arrived at a good time although with things to improve. Tomorrow’s game is very good for us. Playing against the best teams in the world makes you stronger. You must turn on the alarms from the first minute. “Koke: “Well, wanting to play. Hector has been competing very well. Saul, Thomas, Hector, everyone is fine and that’s where he will be. I have doubts as to who can start. The four will participate.” In front of Barcelona, ​​how do you expect the match?: “Unlike the League. There is a direct elimination and only one result. You have to win. The two teams with their characteristics and their tools will seek that goal. LaLiga allows you a draw or situation that this competition will not give you and there is only one result, which is to win. “Low rival, can they condition?: “We will have to comment on the coaches of the other teams, those affected. In the world, when they play Madrid, Barça, Atlético, they don’t ask who played but how the game came out. There will be a winner and it’s the only thing that matters “.The impact absence Costa in this Super Cup: “We have Costa down for several games. He is a very important player for us. He gives us internal competition and offensive strengths but the whole team has worked very well in his absence. As for the game: it is a qualifying match where each one will seek with his weapons to reach that result. “ The Barcelona and the Atlético de Madrid face tomorrow in the second semifinal of the Spain Supercup in Saudi Arabia Today, the protagonists have passed through the press room to analyze the confrontation and discuss the state of their teams.

Why lifetime banning orders are empty promises from West Ham

first_img West Ham’s final match at Upton Park was marred by trouble outside the ground talkSPORT’s Drivetime presenter Adrian Durham was presenting a live show from West Ham’s Upton Park ground ahead of the final match at the 112-year-old stadium. Here, he gives his take on the events that threatened to ruin a special occasion.The scenes outside Upton Park on Tuesday were apocalyptic. It was like being on the set of the film Green Street. You’ve seen the footage, you know what happened, so what should happen now?The fact that West Ham co-owner David Sullivan took it so lightly reflected West Ham’s lack of preparation for such a huge event. Sure they spent £250,000 on fireworks and West Ham branded taxis for the celebrations. Unfortunately they forgot the important stuff.Co-owner David Sullivan’s feeble response embarrassed the club: he said there was no damage to the Man United bus and it wouldn’t have happened if they had turned up a 4pm. Away teams never arrive three hours and 45 minutes before kick off, and there was substantial damage to the bus. Was Sullivan claiming it was United’s fault? Was he saying that if you get to a certain cut off time then your bus deserves to be bottled? They were irresponsible comments from a man in a very important position in our game.The club have promised to ban for life anyone found guilty. Well let’s see if they follow through on that. But what will it mean if it actually does happen? I hosted Drive on talkSPORT from Upton Park from 4pm until 7pm and then popped outside to gauge the atmosphere. I was horrified. It was like the wild west.I recalled a conversation I had on the tube with a Hammers fan earlier that day on my way to the stadium.He had two tickets to sell and wouldn’t accept anything below £1500 for each of them. I asked if he was going to the game, and he said he couldn’t because he was subject to a banning order – he was a bona fide hooligan.His words to me: “They’ll all be coming out of retirement for this one. The fact it’s United makes it better, although we’d have preferred Chelsea.”In other words, all the Hammers hooligans not allowed to go to games formed a substantial part of the baying mob outside.So West Ham are promising to catch the culprits and ban them for life, when quite possibly most of them are already banned for life. Empty words.And what if some of Tuesday night’s hooligans aren’t subject to banning orders already? West Ham will ban them, then pluck a few numbers off their waiting list and fill up the Olympic Stadium – no big deal for West Ham. No punishment.Don’t forget this is the Premier League, these scenes go around the world.On the pitch it seemed to be perfect. That is until you highlight West Ham players falling over for no reason and getting cheap free kicks – Aaron Cresswell for the winning goal for example; Mark Noble twice after that to waste a bit of time.Not everything went West Ham’s way of course, but after a first half Hammers goal was ruled out the officials were made well aware that the crowd were baying for a home win.The nonsense outside the ground forced the ref to delay kick off and commanded ‘common sense’ refereeing – and I’m being diplomatic with that wording.Listen, I’d seen Mike Dean referee like a rabbit in the headlights in a massive game at Middlesbrough on Saturday; he was like a quivering wreck of a rabbit at Upton Park midweek. Any ref would have been, knowing what had happened outside.For all those reasons the game should be replayed behind closed doors at a neutral venue. The whole night stopped being about the fairness and integrity of the Premier League. It became about intimidation of opposition and officials. I used to love Upton Park, but walking past police vans and debris, smelling fear and violence in the East London air, I realised it really was time to move on.I hope for the sake of honest decent people like Karren Brady and so many others who work at West Ham United Football Club, that the disgraceful minority element of their fanbase don’t move on to the new stadium with them. 2 2last_img read more
