Monchi wants Roma fans to be on their best behaviour

first_imgRoma’s director of football urged fans to be on their best behaviour at their clash with Liverpool and the team to beat the Reds as well.Roma’s ultras have been famous for their violent record – if the other clubs have moved past the violence in the 80s of the last century, Roma supporters seem stuck in the past. They are known for stabbing five Manchester United supporters in 2007, a few Tottenham fans later, then there were Arsenal, and Chelsea, and Liverpool, and so on – even Middlesbrough supporters were affected.However, Monchi stated the fans are not violent and urged them to show their true nature.Top 5 Atletico Madrid players to watch in next week’s UCL Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – September 14, 2019 With the Champions League about to start, we need to start talking about the Top 5 Atletico Madrid players to watch in the competition.Atletico…“At this time when we talk about violence, we need to make it clear Roma fans are not violent,” Monchi said, according to Liverpool Offside.“Football and life are two different things. We are all human beings.”“Beating Liverpool is more difficult than beating Barcelona,” Monchi shared. “Tomorrow does not exist—it ends all Wednesday and we must not leave anything in it. Every grandfather, every nephew, son, father, mother. Everybody plays on Wednesday.”last_img read more

Coleman admits Everton is weak

first_imgThe team’s right-back defender knows that only one win in the last four competitive matches is not good for his club.Everton lost 3-1 against Wolverhampton Wanderers in yesterday’s English Premier League fixture.The team went down a couple of spots in the table and is now in the ninth position with just 33 points in 25 matches.The Blues have only nine wins in 25 matches, six draws and ten losses.They have scored 36 goals and received 36 goals.And for Irish footballer and team captain Seamus Coleman, his team is weak right now and has not been playing well.“It’s a massive disappointment for us,” he said to the team’s official website after his side lost 3-1 against Wolverhampton Wanderers.“We should be performing better, especially at home in front of our fans.”“We came off the back of a good result against Huddersfield, and I think that’s been the problem this season.“We can’t seem to get a run of games going,” he added.Harry Maguire, Manchester UnitedLiverpool legend Nicol slams Harry Maguire’s Man United form Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Steve Nicol believes Harry Maguire has made some “horrendous mistakes” recently, and has failed to find his best form since joining Manchester United.“It was a tough goal to concede at the time [of the match],” he said about Raul Jimenez’ late goal.“It always makes it more difficult going into the second half,but we were still going out there for the second half hoping to put a bit more pressure on them, and it wasn’t the case.”“We’re fully responsible, the 11 lads on the pitch, and not many of us were good enough today,” he commented.“Jonjoe [Kenny] was prepared to come in, he came in, and I thought he did well.”“I think probably enough of us can’t say that we did the same and that’s the biggest disappointment today,” Coleman concluded.Everton February’s matches will take the team against Manchester City, then Watford, and after a big rest a visit to Cardiff City.FT.

Researchers find blind fish use novel type of navigational aid

Citation: Researchers find blind fish use novel type of navigational aid (2014, April 7) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2014-04-fish-aid.html Scientists have known for many years that fish have sensors on their flanks that allow them to feel what is going on in the water in which they are immersed. Now it appears that tetras living in a cave in Mexico have added to the sensory information they receive by causing changes to water pressure around them.The tetras are still the same species as the brightly colored fish found in aquariums across the globe, but because they’ve lived in absolute darkness for so long, they’ve lost both their coloring and their eyes. They don’t need either in their caves, as they live by eating bat droppings that fall into the water. But they also do something that has never been observed in any fish—they open and close their mouths, sucking in water which is pushed out the gills, and use the changes in water pressure created to help them recognize objects around them.Suspecting that something different was going on with the sucking motion the fish made, the researchers captured several samples and brought them back to their lab for study. There they put the fish in a tank with no food, but which did have five objects in it that the fish had to get around. After the fish became acclimated, the researchers moved the objects and then watched as the fish went to work. They noted that the fish suddenly began performing their sucking motion three and a half times more often. They followed up that experiment with another where they filmed the fish with a high-speed camera to help them count mouth action. They found that the fish very seldom sucked at the water when swimming at a distance from objects, or the wall. But when they came closer than 7 centimeters, the sucking frequency suddenly picked up, and when they moved to within just 1 centimeter, the sucking frequency occurred twice as often. It picked up again when moving even closer—up to six times as often.The researchers suggest that the novel type of navigational aid likely occurs in other fish as well, just none that are known right now.
