A year without losing at Mestalla

first_imgOnce the competition resumes, the Valencia will have between eyebrows the record that Quique Sánchez Flores achieved between the 2005-06 and 06-07 season. Quique linked, between one campaign and another, 19 matches without know her defeat. To the Celades team, five games to match that record, le are pending duels against Levante, Osasuna, Athletic, Valladolid and Espanyol.Another one of the challenges dthe actual Valencia is to be all a regular League without falling into Mestalla. Since the competition is made up of 20 teams, the Ché team has not been able to close an undefeated course at Mestalla. However, the difficulty will now be double because Valencia will have to play behind closed doors, without the heat of its people and without the effect of a stadium that always pushes. In full stop due to the pandemic, the Valencia meets today a year without losing in Mestalla in Liga. The whole ché adds today 365 days undefeated in his stadium. The last defeat at home was on April 28 last year, against Eibar (0-1). Since then, Valencia have not known defeat in domestic competition.Between the end of last season and the break of this campaign, the black and white box chained 15 matches in a row without falling to his people. The last crash League that Valencia played in Mestalla was almost two months ago, against the Betis (2-1). Before that victory, the Ché team had already pulverized a record 14 years ago after leaving behind the 13 days consecutive at home without losing.last_img read more


first_imgUPDATED: A VICTIM of the great Donegal swindler has told us tonight that he has once again been given more excuses as to why he is not getting his money back.In fact, it’s the same excuse as the last SIX excuses: “Our lawyers are working to freeze assets from accounts!”Earlier this week donegaldaily.com exclusively revealed that investors had met at a Donegal hotel and were told they would get more information on their cash today. But a source told us: “I’m afraid it’s another excuse. I was hoping against hope that this would be it, but deep down I knew this was rubbish, some story about money tied up in investments and frozen accounts. I should have known better. It’s no surprise really.”Earlier today, in yet another exclusive revelation, we revealed that the number of people scammed in the Ponzi scheme is much higher and more widespread than first thought.At first it was thought that just Donegal people had been cleaned. The roly-poly crook was based here in the county.Then we revealed there were investors in Tyrone and Derry. But last night we also learned there are more swindled people in Belfast, Galway, Sligo, Mayo, Clare and Dublin.And a well-placed source told us: “Frankly I’d be very surprised if this latest promise is actually met by this man.“He has hoodwinked everyone.”With the number of investors growing, many people will lose out.One of them – owed €50k – told us: “I’ve given up on my investment. I believe we might get something back if this man thinks he can avoid jail by doing so, but I seriously doubt it.” email info@donegaldaily.comQUELLE SURPRISE!

Doolittle, Gallegly fend off primary challenges

first_imgRepublican Rep. John Doolittle of Rocklin, whose close friendship with disgraced lobbyist Jack Abramoff brought him unwanted scrutiny, easily beat back a GOP primary challenge Tuesday. He was among a handful of incumbents in California’s 53 congressional districts fending off primary challengers. Most attention focused on the San Diego race to replace former Rep. Randy “Duke” Cunningham and the contest against House Resources Committee Chairman Richard Pombo of Tracy, both Republicans. But with voters frustrated over congressional corruption and business as usual in Washington, several other contests were being watched. In the conservative 4th Congressional District, Doolittle defeated Auburn Mayor Mike Holmes. Early returns showed Doolittle with a commanding lead over Holmes. On the Democratic side, retired Air Force Lt. Col. Charlie Brown was favored against Lisa Rea and Mike Hamersley. Brown was leading Rea and Hamersley in early tabulations. In Southern California’s beach-hugging 36th Congressional District, anti-war liberal Marcy Winograd generated political buzz with a longshot challenge to hawkish incumbent Jane Harman of Venice. Harman, top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, supported the war in Iraq and the Patriot Act. Winograd, running under the slogan “A Real Democrat for the People,” supports withdrawing U.S. troops. In early absentee balloting, Harman showed a commanding lead over Winograd. Rep. Elton Gallegly, R-Simi Valley, beat back a primary challenge from first-time candidate Michael Tenenbaum, an attorney. Gallegly tried to drop out of the race on the day of the filing deadline in March, citing unspecified health problems and wrongly thinking the deadline for other candidates to file would be extended. It wasn’t, briefly leaving the field clear for Tenenbaum. GOP leaders urged Gallegly back in, but Tenenbaum stayed in the race. With early absentee ballots counted, Gallegly had an overwhelming lead over Tenenbaum. Meanwhile, in the state’s U.S. Senate race, Sen. Dianne Feinstein easily beat two little-known opponents to secure the Democratic nomination. Conservative former state legislator Richard Mountjoy ran unopposed on the Republican side.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
