Courtois and the penalties against Atleti: “I tried to be scary”

first_imgThibaut Courtois was the guest of this Monday in the Real Madrid Conecta program of Real Madrid Televisión. The goalkeeper reviewed his career, talked about his goals with the white team, praised Zidane, analyzed the titles he has achieved in white, revealed his rituals, confessed his hobbies …His dream is to play in Madrid: “It’s amazing. At the most I could dream of being a starter in the Genk and being there for many years. When I get to Valdebebas I say:‘ Look, I’m here. “I keep training hard. It’s a dream.”How do you feel in this 2020: “Very well. We have many victories and many goals to zero. The match in Getafe was very good, I made several stops in the first half and won 0-3. We went with confidence to the Super Cup, we won and we continue in that line.”The best goalkeeper in the world: “It is not easy for me to say that I am the best. There are many good goalkeepers. I am struggling to help the team win. When you help your teammates win, they will call you that. I have to work day by day because I can improve . The important thing is to help the team. “It started from left side. How did you become a goalkeeper ?: “Because of my relationship with volleyball. With my parents I went to the games, to beach volleyball … We had a field at home to practice. I loved to throw myself. With 7 or 8 years, in Belgium there are no goalkeepers, they rotate. A day, the coach asked me if I wanted to be a goalkeeper in a tournament, I said yes. The Genk saw me as a goalkeeper rather than as a side. “Passion for Madrid: “Seeing Casillas play one of his first games, also as a child … Seeing how he does it well you start to look at Iker, in Madrid … And my mother, who is a physio, had a patient who was going to Madrid to see two or three games a year and he brought me flags, Iker shirts. From there I always followed him and I dreamed that one day I would end here. “Boxes: “At that time it was an example. No matter how old you are. Then I have been looking at other goalkeepers because Iker is shorter than me. I also looked at Van der Sar. When in 2011 I could face Iker it was amazing “.Debut with the Genk: “At the beginning of the season I was in the subsidiary, there were two or three goalkeepers in the first team. I sometimes trained with them. At Christmas two goalkeepers left, they brought in a second … The headline injured his finger, the second goalkeeper my ankle is broken and I was able to debut with 16 years in an important game. “How do you decide to leave Belgium? “There, I thought I was quite an adult. These are things you feel. Both Chelsea and Genk, like much of my surroundings, wanted me to stay another year in Genk. At that moment, Atleti loved me. I saw that I had to grow because in pre-season it was no longer the same, I needed a push to discover my limits and grow. “Eden Hazard: “Eden is someone very funny, always with a smile, he always wants to play. I get along very well with him. Before Chelsea I already knew him from the national team. We are good friends. He is a great player. I hope he comes back soon and he can help win more games. “How did you live your presentation with Madrid? “It was something incredible. You only enjoy a few days later, when you are training. The presentation was very beautiful. It is a dream that you fulfill. I had been wishing for time and we were very happy.”Titles: “Obviously I want to win everything and that we try to do. In the end last year was not the best and that is why this year we are all fighting to win all possible trophies. We have already won the first one, in Copa we want to advance, in February the Champions … With great enthusiasm. “Club World Cup: “It’s special because to play the Mundialito you have to win the Champions League. It’s something I have pending with this club. The first trophy is always special. “Spain Supercup: “You have to be focused on wanting to win the game, knowing what we are doing. Madrid has always done that, in the qualifiers and finals, being there to win. It’s what we did, we are prepared to win and that was seen” .Psychological preparation in some penalties: “I went to the match against Atleti not thinking about being the hero but I felt very good after the game. Ramos or Isco gave me courage. You go with confidence and as I measure two meters I tried to grow up and scare the opponent. That could be It is also important that we do not fail on penalties. “ Mestalla header: “Against Girona at home last year I also went up but left. In Mestalla I knew it was the last play. If it happens three minutes before, I don’t go up. I looked at the goalkeeper coach and he said yes, to go up. The goalkeepers. we have a great timing when reading the plays. I almost scored. In the end Benzema did it. It was a rush for the whole team. “Roberto Vázquez, the goalkeeper coach: “We have a very good relationship with all the goalkeepers, there is a very good atmosphere. When we have to work we do it hard and very well. It shows in the level we are giving the goalkeepers.”Zidane: “It’s something special. As a child I have seen him play. For many players my age he is a reference and having him as a coach is something beautiful. And eager to win by his side.”The least scoring goalkeeper of the five major leagues: “I did not know. I was more aware of here, stopping everything I can. Not only does the goalkeeper count on that, we are eleven. And if we defend the eleven well we will fit few goals. When they ever arrive, I try to stop them. It is important, like yesterday. If we keep the goal to zero a goal is important to win. “19 unbeaten games in a row: “In those games I am sure that there are 11 or 12 with the goal to zero. There are games that we could have won, but if you keep that concentration behind it is difficult to score goals. Concentration and intensity, is what you are demonstrating.”He has received criticism: “I have always been strong mentally. If not, you can not stand the pressure, you know where you come from and here every game is important. Criticisms have to know how to handle them, know who they come from and where they come from. It only matters what the Mr. Roberto, colleagues … I don’t work differently than five months ago. The key is not to lose confidence in yourself. If you don’t trust yourself, forget. You have to be confident. “Who do you talk to most in the field? “The closest relationship is with the defense and Casemiro. We talk a lot and communication is important.”Rituals: “When we start a game I go to both sticks, I touch it with my foot and give it to the crossbar. Then I tie and untie my gloves a lot. It’s a hobby and I get out alone.”When you don’t train, what do you do? “When I have children I spend a lot of time with them. At home I like to watch movies, I play Play, I like Formula 1, I have an armchair with a steering wheel to play, watch the NBA … Then try to eat well and healthy to be fit. It’s day to day. “Kobe Bryant’s death: “I came back from the warm-up and the changes sometimes don’t come out to warm up. Lucas told me and I didn’t believe it. He told me it wasn’t a joke, it was serious. I started watching basketball with the Lakers of Shaquille and Kobe Bryant. He is someone who believed a lot in himself, did not want to give up a minute to enjoy what he loves, everyone loves Mamba Mentality. Everyone will remember his legend and live his values. “What is the best advice from your parents? “Keep your feet on the ground. Have respect, humility and work. And never lower your arms.”Psychological preparation: “In the end each person can have a mistake, the important thing is not to stay on that bad day and think that tomorrow will be another day. Knowing that it will always end well. If you work and do things well, it will come. A positive mind it will always attract good things. The negative mind does not bring anything good. “He has grown in Madrid. “I have grown a lot as a person. Last year was not easy and if you can not with that pressure this year could not be at this level. I’m proud. I have been strong mentally and I continue to grow as a person. Just with 20 years you take everything else to heart, now you know where to focus. “How to receive young players: “You greet them, you introduce yourself… You want to help everyone. Luka Jovic does not speak Spanish yet, much with him is in English. Sometimes you try to explain one thing, help him … He also has Modric, who speaks his language. It is being with them, supporting them. We want to see them succeed. “The Madrid shirt: “You can never loosen up. When you wear this shirt you know the pressure there is. That’s why the players here are able to wear it perfectly. And that’s why he has won so many trophies.”How would you like to be remembered: “As a great goalkeeper and great person. And having been important in Madrid and in the teams I’ve been to.”What would you like to get: “We want to win everything, but the Champions League is a big dream at club level. With the national team we were close to the World Cup, now comes the European. Hopefully we can win it. All dreams can come true.”last_img read more

Juve respect Fiorentina

first_imgJuventus midfielder Miralem Pjanic assured Juventus is full of respect for tomorrow’s Serie A opponents, Fiorentina.The Bianconeri travel to Florence this weekend, for what is sure to be a hostile atmosphere at Stadio Artemio Franchi, where they will face one of their most bitter rivals.”It’s a difficult place to go, so we’ll have to play a good game,” Pjanic said in the build-up to the highly anticipated clash. “It’s a game in which we want to take all three points. We know we’ll have to fight to the end, and it’ll be a game which comes down to the details.”We have a lot of respect for these opponents, so we need to be humble, but above, all we want to take home three points.Juve Coach Massimiliano Allegri complained that his side keep dropping in intensity, after coming close to throwing away the win against Atalanta in the Coppa Italia.concentration”We just have to keep our concentration. It shouldn’t be happening, we need to close out games earlier,” said the tactician. “We’re going forward, we’re working well and we’re getting results but there are some details which we need to correct.”Up until now the team has always been able to correct what we’ve been doing wrong and we want to do that in the coming games.”Pjanic, who has scored seven goals and created nine assists since joining Juventus from AS Roma in the summer, also spoke about his link-up play, particularly with striker Paulo Dybala and his general contribution.”The objective is always to find ourselves between the lines,” Pjanic explained.”Then we have the freedom to combine with each other and switch positions upfront. We find each other on the pitch very often, and it’s easy and a pleasure to play with him in the side.”We have so many good players and we respect that the coach tries to put the best team out on the pitch.”And as I’ve said, I make space for Dybala and he makes space for me. We combine, and now we understand each other’s movements well.”last_img read more

Supervalu could buy Albertson’s

first_img Supervalu has 1,546 owned or licensed retail groceries and 57,000 employees. The company announced Sept. 2 it was interested in pursuing “strategic alternatives” to increase shareholder value. Albertson’s has struggled with lagging sales, a stagnant share price and competition from lower-cost rivals such as Wal-Mart Stores Inc. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! BOISE, Idaho – Grocery chain Supervalu Inc. said Friday it has resumed talks to acquire Albertson’s Inc., the nation’s second-largest traditional supermarket chain. Albertson’s said earlier Friday that it had received a new offer for the entire company from a consortium that had previously made a bid and said it planned to begin negotiations. It did not name the members of the bidding group. But later in the day, Minneapolis-based Supervalu said in a statement that it was a member of the consortium that had resumed talks with Albertson’s. Neither Supervalu nor Albertson’s said how much was being offered. They also cautioned there was no guarantee a deal would be reached. Albertson’s shares rose 24 cents to close at $24.11 on the New York Stock Exchange, while Supervalu lost 34 cents to finish at $31.85. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORESanta Anita opens winter meet Saturday with loaded card The announcements came a day after The Wall Street Journal reported Supervalu and a consortium of private-equity investors offered just more than $26 per share for Boise-based Albertson’s. Its shares have traded as high as $26.51 over the past 52 weeks. “I think the market expects a transaction,” said Joseph Phillips, senior analyst with Redwood Technimentals Research in New York City. “If the latest deal comes in above $26, there’s still a little room for an investor who’s willing to take the risk, and it is risky because last time the deal fell through the stock dropped dramatically.” A previous offer – reportedly valued at about $9.6 billion in cash and stock, or about $26 per share – fell apart when the parties could not agree on who would be responsible if antitrust regulators tried to block the deal. At that time, Albertson’s said it was no longer considering a sale of the entire company. The company said Friday it does not expect to disclose more details unless it approves a transaction or ends the talks. Albertson’s is No. 2 behind Kroger Co., with about 2,500 stores including Albertsons, Acme, Shaw’s, Jewel-Osco and Sav-on Drugs. last_img read more

What’s Happening to All the Green Building Programs?

first_imgChanges, changes, changesThe national programs are all undergoing significant transitions. The latest version of LEED for Homes, originally called 2012 and then renamed to Version 4, recently completed its fifth public comment period and is scheduled to be voted on during the summer of 2013, and, hopefully released late in the year.Interestingly, USGBC is currently planning to allow projects to be certified under the current or the upcoming versions of LEED for Homes for as long as three years after the release of Version 4. Since the current version of LEED for Homes still relies on Energy Star Version 2 requirements for its energy efficiency prerequisites and credits, there is a plan to raise the energy efficiency requirements in the current version of LEED for Homes in early 2013.The 2012 NGBS, also known as ICC 700, is planned for release in early 2013. There will be a short period of approximately three months when builders can use either the current or new versions. Following this, all new projects must use the new standard for certification.Energy Star has also introduced a multifamily certification program to address high-rise buildings that are subject to commercial building codes. Green home certification programs are starting to reach a level of maturity. At the national level, LEED for Homes has established itself as the national industry leader, at least from a branding standpoint. NAHB’s National Green Building Standard (NGBS) has a growing following but, in my opinion, is still struggling to gain broad industry acceptance. Energy Star completed its transition to Version 3 in 2012, significantly raising the bar for certification, and, it appears, losing some market share in the process.The Passivhaus standard continues to influence industry thinking and discussion, possibly out of proportion to its actual impact on the market. The Living Building Challenge is out there on the cutting edge, still having only certified a few (mostly commercial) buildings. Where are we going?While single-family home certification won’t go away, I believe that it will take a while for the demand for certified homes to grow. One industry bright spot is multifamily housing. A large portion of affordable housing in many states is green certified, and many market-rate buildings are now seeking certification. This is good luck for the residents of these buildings – they will get to reap the health, comfort, and efficiency benefits, and, hopefully, demand the same when they move into new apartments, condos, and homes down the road.It will be interesting to see how this will all shake out. I believe that ENERGY STAR will slowly recapture some of its market share. LEED and the NGBS will continue to grow their share, probably at the expense of local programs, with much confusion as the new versions are released and phased in over the next several years. Then we will see another round of program updates and the process will start over again.Confusing? Sure, but it’s also a bit of job security for us raters and consultants. What’s up locally?Many local and regional programs, once close to 200 in number, appear to be losing market share, some to the national certifications. As construction slowed at the beginning of the latest recession, many single-family builders eliminated third-party certification. BLOGS BY CARL SEVILLE Another GreenBuild DownPondering the Sorry State of Green BuildingThe Problem With Modern Architecture Several large builders created their own green branding programs, some of which barely meet the current energy code.EarthCraft House, the Southeastern U.S. program that I am most familiar with, now relies primarily on multifamily certifications, much of that in the affordable market. Single-family home certification, once the mainstay of EarthCraft, is a small part of a much smaller new home market.Some local programs have shut down, and, I expect, that others will do so as well. Please share any stories about the status of local programs in your area.
