Carlos Soler, shadow worker at the service of Valencia

first_imgThe Valencian He has led his team in recent months in what is known as ‘dirty work’. Celades, aware of Carlos’ work, has adopted a game layout on the left where side overflows have more relevance compared to the right. Not surprisingly, the data in the last precedents so express, ‘8’ coverage They allowed Gayà to be, together with Ferran, the player who most focused on the rival area against Atletico. Soler was also who else ran in San Siro a little over a week ago and also completed the same recoveries as Diakhaby in San Sebastián.Although it is a less striking work, although Soler starred in the important goals against Chelsea, Celta or Real Madrid, the technician has shown value. Proof of this is that since he returned from the injury He has been a starter in every game, including the Super Cup, the Champions League and the Cup. And only in five of 18 Celades decided to replace him. One of the players who, a priori, seemed to benefit from the arrival of Albert Celades to Valencia was Carlos Soler. The canterano had to adapt to play in the band with Marcelino and although that allowed him to adopt new faculties, the signing of the new technician seemed to return him to a more advanced position and hook with the strikers, his natural place until he reached the elite and where he could shine more. Nothing could be further from the truth. And is that the Valencianist Not only has he continued in the band, but he has had to adapt to the left side and play changed leg. In that part of the field, José Luís Gayà has shone in recent months, where he has participated in the attack moves as one more extreme. And if the side has been able to reach the opposite area without fear it has been, in large part, because Soler covered his back.last_img read more

first_imgGreek Americans’ John Sarbanes, a Maryland Democrat and Gus Bilirakis, a Florida Republican and Co-Chairman of the parliamentary group for Greek issues, have been re-elected in the House of Representatives. Massachusetts Republican Niki Tsongas, wife of the late Greek-American Senator and candidate for U.S. President, Paul Tsongas has also been re-elected. The winner of yesterday’s election, is a longtime friend of the Greek community and supporter of Greek interests Robert Menendez, a New Jersey Democrat, who won his second six-year term in the U.S. Senate. One of the most bitter races playing out in 2012, has been the race for the Nevada Senate claimed by Democrat Shelly Berkley, a Greek Jew from Thessaloniki, who seems will be defeated by incumbent Republican Sen. Dean Heller. If Berkley is not elected, there will no longer be a Greek Senator in the Parliament, after Republican Senator Olympia Snowe’s decision not to seek re-election. Former U.S. Rep. Dina Titus is returning to Congress, this time from Nevada’s 1st District, while John Arvanitis, a New Jersey Democrat and James Kargas, a Texas Democrat did not make it. In New York, Democrat Rep.

Weather Eye: Expect heat today, cool temperatures rest of week

first_imgPatrick Timm is a local weather specialist. His column appears Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays. Reach him at http://patricktimm.com. We are quickly approaching the end of this month. And the weather has sure been up and down lately. We have gone from hot to cool in 24 hours. Of course we also have those typical June morning clouds. I have to chuckle because some have lasted well beyond the morning hours.The marine cloud deck was thick enough to give us some light drizzle or a shower Friday night. Officially, Vancouver only had a trace of moisture. We have had a trace of rain six days this month. We received measurable rain on five days for a total so far this month of 0.83 of an inch. That is still about three-quarters of an inch below average.There were three 90-degree days and plenty of 60 and 70-degree days.I know the sun worshipers feel a little left out with only three days of 90-degree heat but July is just around the corner and you know the old saying: “Summer begins on July 5th.”Today could join the 90-degree club but the rest of the week looks nice with highs 75-80 degrees. There is a chance of a rain shower overnight into Monday.The Full Strawberry Moon rises late Wednesday just before midnight. I think of strawberries ripening in June but I guess the Algonquin tribes knew to harvest berries under this full moon.last_img read more
