Osasuna-Real Madrid: memories of a ‘hot’ rivalry

first_imgNUTS TO GALLEGO AND VALDANOIn the midst of an environment shaped by a raffle of European competitions that had led to a Madrid-Juventus confrontation and just three days after receiving the whites to Barcelona at the Bernabéu, Osasuna received the Real Madrid players, leaders at that time, in El Sadar. And as usual, the atmosphere was tremendous since the Beenhakker came out to warm up. Although Miguel Indurain took the honor roll (he had won the Tour of the Future of the EEC), from the first minute, radical members of the rojillo set began throwing bottles, coins, lighters, oranges, flares… to the places where the white players were located. Galician (a screw hit his eye causing a contusive syndrome of the anterior pole of the right eye) and Valdano (the Argentinian was hit in the head) they were the ones who suffered the worst consequences in the first ten minutes of the match. The referee of the meeting, Jiménez Moreno, was impassive. The locals won by the minimum, a goal from Bustingorri, appealing to the whites of the first place in the leaderboard. The whites also complained about an action of Rípodas, which hit Buyo when he was about to get out the door. The Sadar was closed …THE HELL THAT LIVED PACO BUYOIn the 1988-8 season9, in the match that opened the second round, the referee of the match, Socorro González had to suspend the meeting. In the first meeting of the season, Real Madrid and Rojillos had tied two goals at the Santiago Bernabéu stadium, while on the way back, the Reds had advanced with a goal of Pizo Gomez at 34 minutes of the first part. In this case, the big hit was Paco Buyo. The Madrid goalkeeper suffered a hell. As soon as you jump to the field to train, from the area where the most radical followers of the Navarre complex were located, the whistle was tremendous, including banners with slogans such as “Buyo execution” and “Buyo, criminal and clown”, as well as a constant chorus shouting: “Buyo, c …, you will go to the wall”. Likewise, threw all kinds of blunt objects: oranges, nuts, coins, firecrackers … One of them reached the Galician keeper. After being notified by the field delegate and not paying attention, the referee, Socorro González, indicated the suspension of the meeting. Three days later, On January 31, the Competition Committee decided to close the Navarrese stadium for three games, and that what remained to be played was done at La Romareda behind closed doors on March 8. And it was there, in Zaragoza, where the remaining 47 minutes were disputed. Hugo Sánchez matched the contest in the absence of five minutes to go … A new edition of a hot match is played again: Osasuna-Real Madrid. Whenever whites play at El Sadar they do so under a strong environment, full of tension and nerves. That palpable tension causes white players to suffer too much throughout the 90 minutes of the match. This rivalry reached great (and bad) notoriety throughout the 80’s. Here we collect three episodes that occurred at that time … RED TO SANTILLANA AND A WHITE DRESS PIG Day 16 of the 1982-83 season. Madrid was leading Pamplona, ​​showing a solid and solvent game: nobody had managed to win the ones he was training at that time Alfredo Di Stéfano. And El Sadar arrived in Madrid with the idea of ​​following his immaculate trajectory. Little by little he would realize that it would not be possible. At half an hour of play, in a set (unfortunate for the Real Madrid players, lucky for the locals), the referee Damín Rendón, indicated a penalty by Juan José: in an attempt to stop a center in Echevarría, the ball hit the arm of the Cadiz defense, pointing out the corresponding penalty, which Rípodas would be responsible for transforming into the 1-0. Just ten minutes later, Santillana would establish the tie. In the absence of ten minutes Echeverría would uneven the score, but the worst came later: Santillana was expelled for claiming a card to a reddish player for a foul on Juanito in the area that defended Basauri. While he was leaving, the Cantabrian striker allegedly insulted the referee. Although the Madridista swore and perjured that he had said nothing, he had three penalty matches. But the thing was not there: a coin thrown from the stands hit Santillana as the Madrid striker retired to the locker room. In addition, and During the meeting a little pig dressed in white was thrown to the pitch. Real Madrid players Paco Bonet and Uli Stielike were also sanctioned.last_img read more

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho charged with misconduct following half-time incident in West Ham defeat

first_imgJose Mourinho has been charged with misconduct by the Football Association following his half-time dismissal in Chelsea’s loss at West Ham.Mourinho, who is appealing against a £50,000 fine and suspended one-match stadium ban for comments made about officials following the October 3 loss to Southampton, faces further charges after being sent to the stands by referee Jonathan Moss during the ill-tempered derby at Upton Park.A statement from the FA read: “Jose Mourinho has been charged with misconduct in relation to his language and/or behaviour towards the match officials in or around the dressing room area at half-time.”Silvino Louro, one of Mourinho’s assistants, was sent to the stands after Nemanja Matic was sent off for two bookable offences and has also been charged with misconduct.Both the Hammers and the Blues have also been charged for failing to control their players in the aftermath of the challenge which led to Matic’s dismissal.“Chelsea coach Silvino Louro has also been charged with misconduct in relation to his behaviour which led to his 45th minute dismissal from the technical area,” the FA statement added.“West Ham have been charged for failing to control their players in the 44th minute of the game and Chelsea have also been charged with the same offence for an alleged breach in the 45th minute of the game.“All parties have until 6pm on Thursday (October 29, 2015) to reply.” 1 Jose Mourinho last_img read more

‘Great game intelligence’ with a bit of Gerrard, Pogba & Matic – new LFC player profiled

first_imgLiverpool are believed to have snapped up Marko Grujic, so talkSPORT’s Transfer Spotlight has more on the talented teenager…Name: Marko GrujicDate of birth: 13/04/96Born: Belgrade, SerbiaClub: Red Star BelgradePosition: MidfieldWhat’s the latest?It appears Liverpool have beaten off competition from the likes of Anderlecht and Inter to sign Serbia’s highly-rated teenager Marko Grujic. It is being reported the player will sign for the Reds in January, but remain with Red Star until the end of the season. Zeljko Buvac, right hand man of manager Jurgen Klopp, is said to have had a hand in the deal.The lowdown:1) At Red Star Grujic operates in a deep lying role and the way he plays in the middle of the park has seen him likened to some of football’s best, such as Steven Gerrard, Paul Pogba and Nemanja Matic.2) Earlier in the year Grujic revealed Matic had informed him Chelsea were keen on him, but he also went on to explain he was looking at a possible summer departure because he wants to win the season’s Serbia SuperLiga with Red Star.3) Speaking to the Liverpool Echo, Serbia-based journalist Vlastimir Stevanovic praised Grujic’s athleticism as well and all round attributes. “He has excellent vision, a great passing game and he possesses great game intelligence,” he said.4) In an interview with Serbia publication Mondo earlier in the year Grujic praised the atmosphere at English stadia and explained that players’ energy levels are boosted with fans so much closer to the action.5) He was a member of Serbia’s victorious 2015 Under-20 World Cup winning team which beat Brazil 2-1 in the final in New Zealand, though he didn’t get on the pitch in that game.What is being said?I think he is much more than a regular playmaker or attacking midfielder. He would be better suited as a winger or behind the striker. I think that he should play on the flanks and closer to goal– Veljko Paunovic, Chicago Fire head coach and under-20 World Cup winning bossVideo evidence: 1 Marko Grujic (no.16) celebrates Serbia’s penalty shoot-out win against the USA last_img read more

Mustangs defuse Dynamiters, 26-0

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWalnut’s Malik Khouzam voted Southern California Boys Athlete of the Week Elder scored his second rushing of the night in the third quarter when he kept the snap and scrambled for a 64-yard touchdown. “Forrest Elder is awesome; he does some amazing things,’ Mustangs coach Ken Howard said. “Roby started off a little rusty because we didn’t play him that much, but he turned things around.’ Although the win did not give Muir a comfortable lead in the standings, it gave them a some separation between them and the bottom of the pack. “It feels pretty good. Our confidence level is going up,’ Howard said. “We’ve had some good practices and we’re in a good position right now. Next week is another big game; we can’t look past anybody.’ Early in the second quarter Elder scored on a quarterback sneak to give Muir a 13-0 edge with 2:08 left. The scoring drive was extended by Roby’s clutch 7-yard catch and run, tight roping the sidelines, on third- and-five. The third quarter, though, was when Elder and Roby really put on a show. Roby opened the Mustangs’ second half with another athletic play. Elder, who wasn’t hurried in the pocket for the majority of the game, found Roby down the middle, who in turn caught the ball and ran around the defenders for a 17-yard touchdown, setting the tone for the rest of the game. PASADENA — Muir High School (5-2, 2-0) stayed atop the Pacific League after shutting out last place Glendale High School (1-6, 0-2), 26-0 at home Friday night. There was no surprise as to who would do the damage for the Mustangs. Quarterback Forrest Elder and receiver Tyler Roby provided a potent combination that led the way to the easy victory. An early Dynamiters’ stingy run defense was not enough to hold down Muir for long. center_img 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
