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

Operation ends girl’s unchecked laughter

first_img“You could tell by the look that something isn’t right,” said Anderson, who compared her daughter’s behavior to Batman’s arch-nemesis. “It was almost as if she started to grind her teeth and then it was kind of a smile almost like the Joker – I don’t know how else to describe it,” Anderson said. NEW HYDE PARK, N.Y. – Doctors probed deep into the center of a 3-year-old girl’s brain to save her from her own laughter. Anastasia Lagalla’s uncontrollable laughter and seizures were part of an extremely rare condition that could have led to mental retardation, but doctors announced Thursday that surgery to remove a tumor causing the problem had been successful. “It’s like I have my little girl back,” said Ana’s mom, Jennifer Anderson of Ridge, N.Y., who beamed as she told reporters Thursday of her daughter’s recovery. “She’s doing amazing.” The laughing seizures began in May 2006, Anderson said, with only a few episodes a day. At first, Anderson and her husband, Peter Lagalla, agreed with the assessment of doctors that the tantrum-like symptoms were merely “terrible twos” behavior, but the frequency of the seizures grew to an alarming rate. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
