The cards can leave Simeone without three pieces

first_imgLooking a little further, in the locker room there are five other players who are two yellow from the penalty. They are Savic, Morata, Koke, Vitolo and Vrsaljko. The case of the Croatian is special, who made his debut against Leganés and was then reprimanded in the next three games. Thus, there are eight rojiblancos who have to be careful not to be punished. At least, Cholo has the peace of mind that 22 players are already available, all but Lemar, Therefore, sanctions may not be a serious problem if they do not accumulate. On the horizon, after visiting Espanyol, Atlético will meet Sevilla, direct rival, and then Athletic, Osasuna and Valladolid.In Champions the situation is very different. The Cholo only has a warning in case the Atlético is raised in the quarterfinals. In the European competition the cycles to be punished are not five cards, but three and with two yellow is only Correa, admonished in the first leg against Liverpool. No other player carries more than one card. Largely overcome the plague of injuries in the locker room, Atlético must now be careful with cards too. Simeone has a yellow of the sanction in League to three soccer players: Thomas, Marcos Llorente and João Félix. As soon as they are admonished they will become low for the next game. For the technician it can be a problem especially if he drops both means at the same time, because the Ghanaian is an essential and the Madrid player is gaining weight in the team and also, if necessary, could replace his partner.In the case of Thomas, the third footballer in the squad with more minutes (2,651), he would complete his second cycle of reprimands, since he has nine yellow ones – those that add up to ten more than First – and the game was lost against Granada (first round) by penalty. For its part, João Félix (1897 ’) saw Villarreal his fourth yellow in the league, the third to protest, to become warned. In the case of Llorente, he has been aware since November and there are already seven games in which he has dodged the fifth card.last_img read more

Photograph: Nigel French/Empics First published on Thu 28 Aug 2008 19.01 EDT • Trainer and son injured, friend killed in accident• Tributes flow in for bloodstock agent Corby Since you’re here… Shares00center_img Horse racing Share on Facebook Share on Pinterest Topics The mood at Mick Channon’s West Ilsley yard was described as “shocked” by a spokeswoman for the Berkshire stables last night as staff came to terms with the news that the trainer and his teenage son had been injured and another man killed in a car crash on Wednesday evening. The three were returning home from Doncaster sales when the Mercedes in which they were travelling left the M1 and collided with a concrete pillar.Tim Corby, a 63-year-old bloodstock agent and owner who is thought to have been driving the car, was pronounced dead at the scene. Channon and his 15-year-old son Jack were flown to a hospital in Nottingham, where both were described as “stable” in intensive care last night.Channon suffered broken ribs, a broken arm, a fractured jaw and a punctured lung. His son is not thought to have been seriously injured. The cause of the crash is unclear and Leicestershire police are appealing for witnesses. It appears that no other vehicles were involved.Channon is expected to have surgery on his jaw and his arm today, after which stable staff hope to have a clearer idea of when they can expect his return. “It’ll be a second-team effort for now,” said his racing secretary, Sue Harding, “but the minute he can get a phone to his ear, he’ll be back in charge.”Channon’s elder son, Michael, said: “Mick is conscious and able to talk from his hospital bed and he’s absolutely devastated at the loss of Tim. We have been petrified and worried and absolutely out of our wits worrying about our own family. But as for the Corbys, our hearts really go out to them.”Newmarket trainer George Margarson led the tributes to Corby. “Tim was a great bloke and a really good bloodstock agent,” he said, “and he was racing manager for John Guest, my biggest owner – he introduced John to the game. He was great at keeping people involved in racing. He was a genuine, honest, fun-loving bloke but professional, too – he was always very hard working.”It’s a very tough job [buying good horses] and he would always make the extra effort to go and have another look at a horse. So he’ll be especially missed at this time of year. Barathea Guest, who won the Grenham, we both picked him out together – and he found Imperial Guest, my best two-year-old this year.”Corby had achieved a notable success earlier this year when Katchit won the Champion Hurdle. He had bought the gelding out of Channon’s yard with a view to selling him as a hurdler. Alan King, Katchit’s trainer, said: “He was an absolutely smashing fella and I’m totally shocked by his death. My thoughts are with his family.”Bruce Raymond, racing manager to Channon’s principal owner, Jaber Abdullah, had first-hand experience of Corby’s talent and said: “Jaber often used to go to him when he wanted a second opinion.”It’s very sad. I knew Tim well – I was talking to him when he was at Doncaster bloodstock sales on Tuesday. He was very close to Mick. I thought he was a great guy, very friendly and open and he always wanted to help people.” Corby is survived by his wife Sheila and daughter Adriana.Ron Cox’s tip of the dayMythical Blue 2.10 SandownHandicappers trained by Stuart Williams often run up a sequence when they hit form and Mythical Blue looks one to follow. He landed some good bets in a Newmarket nursery under a fine ride from young David Probert, who takes a valuable 5lb off again. Mythical Blue has an advantageous high draw and has more improvement in him, judging by the way he beat Waffle last time.
