The miracle of Deportivo has no limits

We ceded possession of the ball and from there we looked for a clear exit. In the first half we were not well, although we had two clear options, and in the second, the Alcorcón, which is very good team, put us in more trouble, “said Vázquez, at a press conference. Fernando Vázquez does not like to be called a magician, but what Deportivo has been doing since his arrival brushes the paranormal. Seven consecutive victories, and the latter worthy of study. 91 minutes defending, suffering and holding on to the inspiration of Dani Giménez in the goal. A draw that was already miraculous became victory in the last play of the game in practically the only shot between the three suits. Center of Keko Gontán and Mamadou Koné, holder for the injuries, marking on plate to punish an Alcorcón that deserved to win, took a new and undeserved stick in his stadium and ends an unbeaten seven-game streak.The match began with Corunna animation in the stands and potter in the field. And it is that the Alcorcón entered the encounter with two more marches than those of Vázquez. Good pressure throughout the field, greater intensity in duels and superiority in the game. The result was a Depor locked up with Montero shrinking ball after ball and Stoichkovthreatening Dani Giménez with two intentional shots. Twenty minutes of suffering until the left-handers of Çolak and Aketxe woke up to warn Alcorcón that Deportivo was also in Santo Domingo. The visitor awakening was short-lived and the yellows, who after taking a breath, returned to the charge with Stoichkov demanding the best of Dani Giménez. Good first half of those of Fran Fernández, dumped in the band of Mollejo, before a rocky Depor and delivered to the cons, but missing much the oxygen that Sabin Merino brings back to goal despite the tireless effort of Koné.The dynamics at the start of the second half continued the same, even with greater dominance of an Alcorcón that did everything well, but that failed to tear down the blue and white wall. The domino turned into harassment with the feeling that the local goal was only a matter of time. The same feeling was Fernando Vázquez, who struck Keko and Hugo Vallejo at once to try to threaten a Dani Jiménez who lived a placid morning. On the contrary, the other Dani, the Giménez, that in the 75th minute took a foul from Mula that was already slipping. And again the Galician goal was decisive two minutes from the end, when he took out a missile from Diéguez that was looking for a prize. When the local crowd was lamenting the draw, Koné’s head came at the last minute to enlarge the streak of Depor. To prove that Fernando Vázquez’s elf has no limits.center_img ChangesRui Costa (56 ‘, Dani Romera), Keko (66 ‘, Emre Çolak), Hugo Vallejo (67 ‘, Aketxe), Samuel Sosa (68 ‘, Oscar Arribas Pasero), Luis Ruiz (81 ‘, Victor Mollejo), Sergiy Myakushko (83 ‘, Juan Diego Molina Martinez)last_img read more

FF moves to rescind controversial fishing penalty points statutory instrument

first_imgFianna Fáil Spokesperson on the Marine & Fisheries Pat the Cope Gallagher has tabled a motion on behalf of his party to rescind the recently published Statutory Instrument (SI) No 89 0f 2018 – which was set to introduce a penalty point system for fishing infringements.The measure to introduce the statutory instrument was moved late last year by Minister for Agriculture, Food and Marine Michael Creed.The government has attempted to introduce a similar statutory instrument on fishing infringements on two previous occasions, but it ended up in the Supreme Court where it was subsequently struck down. Deputy Gallagher explained, “Fianna Fáil as a party is supportive of the introduction of a penalty points system for fishing infringements as requested under the EU control regulations providing the rights of the individual are respected, that natural justice is allowed to occur and our common law rights are upheld. It is therefore essential that any new points system for fishing infringement must work within the remit of the Irish courts.“The statutory Instrument placed before the Dáil by Minister Creed seriously undermines the rights of individual fishermen and vessel owners throughout the country, and it bizarrely bypasses both the Circuit and District Courts by establishing a new structure which is answerable to no one other than the Sea-Fisheries Protection Authority.“Despite being strongly directed by the Supreme Court, the government has failed to provide for the right of appeal to the individual, to deal adequately with the onus of the burden of proof, or to separate the powers and independence of the SFPA and the processes which will determine whether an infringement has occurred or not.“Furthermore, in line with the previous Sis, the fishermen and vessel owners were being treated as guilty parties from the outset – with the burden of proof being placed on them to prove their innocence as opposed to the state making a case against them, and more worrying than that, was the fact that penalty points would remain on the licence of the vessel owners, even if they had been successful in their appeal. This was an issue that was highlighted by the Supreme Court previously. “We have serious reservations regarding this piece of secondary legislation, especially given the fact that the Supreme Court has already twice expressed its reservations on this matter.“It appears the Government has failed to address the issues raised in the Irish Courts and the latest SI repeats the errors of previous pieces of legislation.“I have brought forward proposals to the party’s front bench to take the unprecedented move to place a motion before the Dáil to rescind the SI on the grounds that the legislation is flawed and contrary to our rights as citizens of this state. The government must introduce primary legislation to properly introduce a system which is both fair and balanced.“It cannot treat fishermen as lesser class citizens before the law, nor can the Minister circumvent the directives of our courts and constitution. Even in recent days the Attorney General voiced his reservations regarding this legislation but the government remains resolute in attempting to bring this SI forward.“I am determined that this SI will not see the light of day. The government needs to go back to the drawing board and ensure that the rights and entitlements of the fishermen are protected under Irish law. This SI is a step too far”, concluded Deputy Pat the Cope Gallagher.
