Ronaldo’s ‘Ghost’ Haunts Real Madrid as Ajax Visits Tonight

first_imgBut they come into the game on the back of three consecutive home defeats – including two by Barcelona last week.“Given what he did for us and this club, we miss Cristiano,” said Modric.Ronaldo was top scorer, or joint top scorer, in the past six Champions League seasons. He scored a club record 450 goals in nine years before his £99m summer move to Juventus.But they failed to sign a big-money replacement and only three of their players have scored more than five goals this season – Karim Benzema (20), out-of-favour Gareth Bale (13) and centre-back Sergio Ramos (11).They have lost three of their last four games, 2-1 to Girona, 3-0 to Barcelona in the Spanish Cup semi-final second leg and 1-0 to Barca in La Liga to leave them 12 points off top.“The club wanted the other players to make up for what Ronaldo did, divided between the strikers and that is not easy,” Modric said.“Cristiano scored 50 goals and you can’t find someone today who scores that many. Some of us have to take a step forward and, while not scoring 50, what we need is two or three players who score 15, 20, or 10 goals and we don’t have that.“That is our biggest problem this year. For example against Barca in the cup we had many chances and when you don’t take advantage your opponent punishes you.”Real captain Ramos starts a two-game ban for “for clearly receiving a yellow card on purpose” during the first leg – which the Spanish side were fortunate to win, while midfielder Marcos Llorente is injured.TODAYB’Dortmund v TottenhamR’ Madrid v AjaxWEDNESDAYFC Porto v RomaPSG v Man UtdShare this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram UEFA CHAMPIONS LEAGUEReal Madrid’s failure to replace Cristiano Ronaldo’s goals has contributed to their struggles this season, says midfielder Luka Modric.Real, chasing a fourth European title in a row, host Ajax in the second leg of their Champions League last-16 tie tonight having won 2-1 in Amsterdam.last_img read more

Olympia Assistant Fire Chief Pat Dale Retires

first_imgFacebook2Tweet0Pin0 Submitted by The City of OlympiaOlympia Assistant Fire Chief Pat Dale has announced his retirement beginning January 31, 2015.Olympia Assistant Fire Chief Pat Dale has announced his retirement beginning January 31, 2015, after 33 years of fire service including 16 years of service to the citizens of Olympia and Thurston County at the Olympia Fire Department.  Chief Dale intends to pursue fire service teaching and other fun adventures during his retirement. Chief Dale has the opportunity of a lifetime, teaching Fire Ground Command and firefighting techniques, nationally and internationally, with an established training company based in Phoenix Arizona.  Prior to coming to Olympia, Chief Dale worked through the ranks to Battalion Chief at the Kent Fire Department. A life-long area resident, Chief Dale began his fire service career as a volunteer at the Tumwater Fire Department after graduating from Tumwater High School.Chief Dale contributed more to the firefighters at Olympia and in Thurston County than can be listed here.  A few of his many accomplishments include: developing the Olympia command training center for fire officer training –  purchase and deployment of Olympia’s first articulated aerial ladder truck – development of a working and training relationship with Bates Technical College in Tacoma – initiated and managed a joint fire training program for Olympia, Lacey Fire District 3 and City of Tumwater – brought to Olympia, International Association of Fire Fighters, Firefighter Survival training class, this is the only such approved course and teaching location in the State of Washington –  and earned a number of personal medals for mountain biking at the World Police and Fire Games.Chief Dale was especially invested in firefighter safety.  Along with all of the training programs he developed to Olympia, he worked with one very special safety program that has been seen locally, regionally nationally and internationally by fire service members.  Chief Dale was instrumental in producing the Mark Noble safety video for firefighters.   Mark Noble, was the first line of duty death in the history of the Olympia Fire Department.  Before Noble died of brain cancer from diesel exhaust in fire stations, he sat for a moving video interview in which he talked openly about his cancer, warned firefighters about the risks of firefighting and highlighted measures to assure respiratory safety.  Without Chief Dale’s support and subsequent distribution of the video, this incredibly important message might never have been shared.People may remember the big fires in Olympia over the past 16 years but what is more important in Chief Dale’s career are the many house fires that were contained to just one room and the fire extinguishments at Georgia Pacific in 2007 that averted a major catastrophe.  The knowledge, vision, training and energy that Chief Dale brought to his job translated to positive outcomes for Olympia.Chief Dale’s extensive knowledge of firefighting and his ability to share that information with new officers and firefighters will be greatly missed in Olympia and Thurston County.last_img read more

Bennett not afraid of losing job

first_imgJamaica Scorpions coach Junior Bennett, has said that while he is concerned about the fortunes of the team in recent years, he is not too perturbed at the notion of losing his job. The former regional four-day and one-day championship-winning coach has for the past three years been prevailing over squads that have produced substandard outcomes. This lack of results has been evident in the regional first-class championship, where two years ago, the team finished fourth, and last year, fifth. The one-day team has not been firing on all cylinders either, with the team over the past three seasons having a record of two semi-final appearances, and a first-round exit. “If you are the coach of the side and they are not playing well, then you have to take responsibility for it,” Bennett told The Gleaner following the team’s eight-wicket defeat to Trinidad and Tobago Red Force in the WICB First-Class Championship at Sabina Park earlier this week. “But, in life, just you just have to do what you have to do. That’s the way I see it. That’s the way I work. You are going to have good times and bad times.” The defeat by Jamaica was their fourth of the season in seven outings, with the others being victories. It followed a surprising 82-run defeat away to Leewards Hurricanes the previous week. This has placed them in third position on 60 points and with only a mathematical chance of surpassing leaders and defending champions Guyana Jaguars, who has 107. B’DOS IN SECOND PLACE The Barbados Pride, 90, are in second position with Red Force fourth on 56, Windwards Volcanoes fifth on 41 and the Leewards rounding off the standings with 36. “No, I am not worried,” Bennett said when asked if he was worried that the team’s lack of results could cost him his job. “Anytime you play cricket and dominate for a period of time, you are going to have a time when you just have to rebuild,” Bennett added. The Scorpions, who changed captain from Paul Palmer Jr to John Campbell last weekend in a bid to try and arrest their flagging fortunes, are scheduled to face the Pride at Sabina Park this weekend in the eighth round of the 10-round championship.last_img read more

Kimani’s hope – Convicted Jamaican basketballer finds peace on the court

first_imgIn his own words, the last four years of Kimani Ffriend’s life have played out like a movie. Not a sunny, happy film, but a horror flick; one which Ffriend hopes to walk out of very soon. Things are looking up for the professional basket baller though. After spending two years and eight months of his sentence, part of that period under house arrest after he was found guilty of vehicular manslaughter in 2014 for the November 3, 2012 death of Serbian Nevena Dragtunovic, Ffriend late last year signed a contract with Serbian team OKK Beograd and only a few weeks ago got a new contract with the top team in the country’s domestic league – Dynamic. He’s so far been the leading scorer for the team and is one of the most valuable players in the league. In fact, he says playing basketball has been his therapy as he hovers on the cusp of liberty – not quite free, not quite locked up. He is scheduled to return to court on January 25 for a hearing on an appeal against his conviction. While he awaits the outcome of his appeal, Ffriend has been allowed some freedoms and that is what enabled him to start playing again, and earn a living in the sport which brought him fame. “The basketball for sure has been my therapy. The two hours I’m in training or the weight room or playing that is my way of getting away from the reality of the situation. If it wasn’t for me being able to play here it would have been much harder and being under house arrest it was much harder,” he told The Gleaner. His renewed faith in God has also helped him get through the difficult moments. Ffriend admits that his position has weighed heavily on his psyche. Because he was so well known, and the woman who died was the girlfriend of a Serbian pop star, the case has continued to make headlines. “It’s all been very humbling. I made a lot of money financially and all of that was taken away from me, but although I lost a lot, I gained in Christ and now I rely on my faith and it’s my faith why I’m able to have a positive mind outlook,” Ffriend said. Ffriend, who continues to live in Belgrade, has not been able to see any of his Jamaican family throughout the period and he says the experience has taught him patience. “Everything happens for a reason and I see what my purpose is and now I have to stay patient and trust God that everything will work out,” he said. “It messes with your head but at the same time it’s a blessing because I am able to move around, but my life is stagnant because I have to go back to court and I’m still like a prisoner. I’ve been here four years now but my life is still not moving forward. I can’t do anything in my career. I lost four of my best years in this country,” he said. “It’s traumatising. Those types of stuff affect your mentality. Because of that I can’t really be myself until all of that is over. I’m more aware of my surroundings. I don’t trust people as much as before. I’m not as open or friendly as I used to be. It’s not a good feeling and this is something I have to live with for the rest of my life.” The knowledge that he robbed a family of its daughter also weighs on his conscience. “There is not one day that goes by that I don’t think about it,” he said.  Through basketball and over the last few months Ffriend has been turning things around and one of the best parts he says is that when the newspapers write about him it’s no longer about his court case but his exploits in basketball. “The fact that I’m playing and the coaches want me to play is a big deal. It’s a new year. All I’ve been going so far is up and I just have to believe that God is going to pull me through,” he said. dania.bogle@gleanerjm.comlast_img read more
