first_imgJuanma Lillo will be in charge of directing the Qingdao Huanghai in his debut in the Chinese First Division. The Basque was confirmed today as a coach of the Shandong team, with which last season he achieved promotion to the Super League. After a fruitless stage in Vissel Kobe, Lillo arrived in Qingdao in August last year. He took the reins of a team that already occupied places of direct ascent and led him to reap six wins, a draw and a defeat in eight games, what the promotion and the title of the Jia League gave him. “After a friendly negotiation between the two parties, Qingdao Huanghai completed the extension of Juanma Lillo’s contract,” the Chinese club published in one of its official channels.

Barça’s business with Barry: could go for € 3M

first_imgThe transfer of the youth Louie Barry can become a round financial business for FC Barcelona. The English arrived this July from West Bromwich Albion in exchange for just over € 250,000 and now, only six months later, Aston Villa is willing to pay a millionaire transfer for the youth striker A.According to the English press, Birmingham club will pay more than three million euros for the striker to return to England. This transfer has unleashed, again, the wrath of West Bromwich Albion, quarry from which Barry left for Barcelona last July. The baggies denounce the transfer to the Villa after Barry refused to renew with them and left his academy for € 261,000, flat rate established by FIFA for the transfer of youth between foreign clubs, last July. These have raised their complaints to FIFA itself for what happened and is that, as they say from England, Barcelona has not yet paid this transfer when it is about to close the next one.Thus, Barry will close a brief stage in Barcelona leaving a good profit and several ‘controversies’ since his arrival. In addition to his departure and anger at West Brom, the PSG saw how Barry finally signed for the Catalans when he had already passed the medical examination with them.During his youth stage he did not have a great role. The player did debut in the Youth League with the Catalans but in the three games he played in this competition he left from the bench getting an assist in the 2-3 defeat to Slavia Prague.last_img read more

Something happens with João Félix

first_imgJoão takes this course four goals (Eibar, Mallorca and two to Lokomotiv) and an assist, against Leganés. Little baggage for a player of his enormous quality, although it is true that an ankle sprain stopped him when he was better and left him out of six games. And Simeone is still trying to strengthen him for his good and that of the team, although he is also usually one of the usual substitutes for his disgust. In the final against him Madrid started on tip next to Morata, although during some section it occupied the right band. They are the two positions that he has been playing since he arrived at the Metropolitan, although the Portuguese prefers to be closer to the area and less demanded in defense. In that sense he also explained the Cholo that would look for the formula so that fatigue does not punish the player and can be more decisive in attack.“Apart from talent, commitment is needed. When feelings appear because they are in Atlético, things go out alone. Each player needs his time”, explained the technician asked about the young crack before Barça-Atlético. The player did not find his best feelings in Arabia, although he tried hard. For this reason and because before the break, he made good performances and left great plays that show what he has, since the club has intact his faith in him, although there is some concern, as in part of the fans, hoping that in what The course is much more than a soccer player with sparks.The strong investment made has generated some impatience around the player and also that he is probably judged very severely. However, the forward is aware of his role and expectations and does not shy away from responsibility. From the locker room they warn that you only need a couple of goals and good games to break free and take away all the anxiety you may have. In Jeddah it could not be. Something happens with João, but he has time to dispel all doubts. The season is close to the decisive stretch and Atlético and its people expect the best of the crack that has excited most in many years … 7 No one doubts that João Félix is ​​a footballer with something special. Any fan, mattress or not, sees that when he catches the ball and tames it, he has an enormous talent that if it explodes can lead him to be a supercrack. But it is also true that in the Super Cup more was expected of him. On a stage to look, before two rivals of the highest level, he went virtually unnoticed. Details, some driving, good touches … but no real weight in the matches. Something happens with João, who at times has been seen with some disconnection, even apathetic. He is young (20 years old) and the confidence in him is full to help everyone to grow the football player, because there are still three titles at stake. But he has to punch the table.In the final he played 101 minutes and left a shot outside (crossed the ball too much after a Ramos fault) and another blocked. In the semifinal of Thursday he did not finish, although he participated in the 0-1 combination. But it really was not successful in most of the actions in which it is expected that, due to its quality, the play will improve. The focus that should be especially for him in recent weeks is being earned by Correa, A player who loses more balls and is more unpredictable, but is more electric, is being more decisive and, taking stock of each game, generates more danger to the opponent even starting from further back.last_img read more

Find out why IKEA puts such rare names on its products

first_imgHaving said this curious biographical data, the founder of IKEA decided to create a series of names with which to baptize their products and that today can still be used. Once the series was created, it grouped the different types of furniture and objects of the brand and associated them with a specific theme. Below you can see a list with the different groups of IKEA products and the theme to which it is associated.List of IKEA product names– Toiletries: Names of Swedish lakes and bodies of water.– Bed textiles: flowers and plants– Beds, cabinets and lounge furniture: Norwegian place names– Bookstores: Professions or names of Scandinavian children– Bowls, vases, candles and candlesticks: Swedish place names, adjectives, spices, herbs, fruits and berries– Boxes, wall decoration, paintings, frames and clocks: Swedish slang expressions, Swedish place names– Children’s products: Mammals, birds, adjectives.– Desks, chairs and swivel chairs: Scandinavian boy names– Fabrics and curtains: Scandinavian girls names– Garden furniture: Scandinavian Islands– Kitchen accessories: Fish, mushrooms and adjectives– Illumination: Units of measure, seasons, months, days, shipping and nautical terms, Swedish place names– Carpets: Danish place names– Sofas, armchairs, chairs and dining tables: Swedish place namesThis way of organizing the products of the famous brand attracts attention worldwide and now we know its origin. Even so, this technique sometimes varies, since if the name of a product is very similar to a word from another language, this product changes its name in that country. Although IKEA products are very different and varied, they all have something in common and they are the strange names that they give them. Although these types of words are known to Swedes, it can be very difficult for the rest of the world to try to name a simple shelf. It may seem that naming each of your products in such a peculiar way is meaningless. However, it has its reason.The founder of this popular Swedish company, Ingvar Kamprad, suffers from dyslexia and over the years has sought a method to help him fight with it. At one point in his life, he realized that nouns helped him remember products better than when using numerical codes.
