It is curious, in addition, another statistic. José Manuel Aira, Cultural technician, in fact, does not know the defeat between its walls. When the Leonese team lost that Cup match against Barcelona he was not there, he was still coach Victor Cea. And one of the sinuses of this Atlético 2019-20 and that of the last 2018-19 is its weakness far from the Metropolitan Wanda. In season and a half, he has won in the league only ten games away from home. Poor numbers for a team whose aspirations are everything. Atlético travels to León on Wednesday to start the Copa del Rey on Thursday. New format, old aspirations. It is the shortest path at the moment to a title, six games. But Cholo cannot start looking for him in a more difficult place: the Kingdom of León. They take their bleachers for a year and a half without seeing their team, the Cultural Leonesa, without kneeling at home, without a defeat. The last time it happened, which he lost, was also the Copa del Rey. The tie of two seasons ago against Barcelona. A Barcelona that failed 0-1 until the one-way discount, in minute 91, goal of Lenglet. Afterwards, they have followed only victories and draws in the League and in the Cup. The Cultural is a team of those who never stop believing. His name was in the hype of the draw of the 16th Cup for the goal of Kawaya against a rival of Segunda, Huesca. It was in the 90 ‘. The Kingdom can be called a fort.

Doc Lawson, ex United States Major League Soccer (MLS) player of Liberian origin has called on Liberian parents to encourage their kids to play sports.Known affectionately by kids as Uncle Doc, the Chief Executive Officer and president of United States based not for profit organization, DonamiSports, said he is happy to make his contribution to the happiness of kids in Liberia.“We intend to organize similar happy moments for kids throughout the country,” Uncle Doc said. “We believe that kids need to play sports; and therefore, we need to keep their interest in sports.”He told the Daily Observer last Saturday, when he held a fun game for 400 kids in Duport Road community, that the program will be bigger next year.“My major interest is to give kids the moment of their lives, to be with each other as they engage in sports. I think it is an important experience for them,” he said.Uncle Doc said his partners in the United States are passionate about helping Liberian children to simply have fun through playing soccer.“I saw the excitement on the faces of all those 400 kids and I am satisfied that working with others, including the Liberia Young Men Christian Association, we were able to direct our energies to make those children happy.“That’s why I think it is important for adults and parents in particular to remember kids and make them part of what they do for leisure,” Uncle Doc said.He said he is grateful to few volunteers who joined him and worked hard to give the kids the best experience of their young lives.DonamiSports/YMCA provided jerseys and medals for all 400 kids who participated in the one day soccer jamboree. The kids’ ages ranged from three to seven.Recently, more than 10 communities in Monrovia, Kakata and Gbarnga concluded U-12 and 14 soccer tournaments under the sponsorship of DonamiSports/YMCA.DonamiSports, he said, use sports as a vehicle to get kids to play with each and to develop the ability to work together as teams, an invaluable asset for their development as members of the Liberian community.Doc is also the global ambassador for The Last Well, a US based organization that is determined to provide safe drinking water, alongside the Gospel of Jesus Christ, for all Liberian communities by 2020.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window) read more

Frank McGlynn has been an integral part of the Donegal senior football squad since his debut back in 2006.In the build up to tomorrow’s Ulster final versus arch rivals Tyrone, McGlynn has noted to the joys of success but also mentioned the taste of defeat.“Every Ulster championship you get is massive, for the team and the whole county. It gives everyone a great lift going into August in Croke Park as Ulster champions.” “We have done both before, going into August as Ulster champions and going in as runners-up in Ulster and there is a huge difference when you get to that stage, so the preferred option is to go there as champions.”Take a look at Donegal TV’s video below.DDTV: FRANK MCGLYNN TALKS ABOUT THE ULSTER FOOTBALL FINAL was last modified: July 16th, 2016 by Mark ForkerShare 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:DDTVdonegal tvFrank McGlynnUlster Championship read more

Mayo GAA manager James Horan may have some secret information on All-Ireland finalists Donegal if his team beat Dublin on Sunday.The Ballintubber man lived here for a number of years where he worked at Letterkenny Institute of Technology.But even more surprising is the fact that James led a secret sporting career – as a rugby star. The Mayo boss lined out for Letterkenny Rugby Club and became its top point-scorer for two seasons.Horan would play rugby on Saturday and then travel home on Sunday to play gaelic.Former President of Letterkenny RFC, Jim Moore, says James could have played rugby at the highest level.“He is such a nice fella and he was a natural sportsman. “He played full-back for us and he was our top points scorer. He could have played at the highest level.“He was very popular and I’m sure there will be plenty of Donegal people rooting for him on Sunday.“However, I’m not so sure they will be speaking to him if they beat Dublin and go on to the final,” laughed Mr Moore.MAYO BOSS WILL HAVE FIRST-HAND KNOWLEDGE OF DONEGAL – IF THEY REACH FINAL! was last modified: September 1st, 2012 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:donegalJames HoranMayo manager read more
