Malaga clings to its fortress in La Rosaleda

first_imgDespite these numbers, the good performance of Malaga as a local comes from further back. The blue and whites add eight straight games without knowing defeat at home, in which he has won four wins and four draws. 16 points of 24.The last time Málaga lost at home was on October 26, three and a half months ago. And he did it before Cádiz (1-2). Since then La Rosaleda has been impregnable. And to that strength as a local Malaga is seized to progress in the classification. The blue and white team was penultimate after the visit of Cadiz to Martiricos on day 11 and currently occupies the seventeenth position. This progression also has protagonists at the individual level. The level of players like Antoñín or Sadiku in these months has been decisive. EI Málaga has recovered the smile. And he has done it in the heat of La Rosaleda. The situation remains delicate, but under Sergio Pellicer’s tutelage the team has added eight points out of 15 possible and maintains a two-point mattress on the relegation points, one more than when the club dismissed Víctor Sánchez del Amo. Of those eight points, seven have arrived in La Rosaleda. Two victories and a draw against Mirandés in a match that Málaga had to win make up the blue and white balance at home with Pellicer in command. The team has added 12 points as a visitorThe life of Malaga at home is another story. Málaga won in Santander on the first day of the League. But then he has only added nine points as a visitor. Their numbers far from La Rosaleda are quite discreet, having garnered a total of 12 points in 13 home matches. In his 12 starts he has achieved two victories (against Racing de Santander and Deportivo), six draws (Mirandés, Zaragoza, Numancia, Extremadura, Oviedo and Fuenlabrada) and also six defeats (Girona, Albacete, Huesca, Ponferradina, Alcorcón and Elche). Despite these records, there are up to five Second Division teams that have added fewer points than Malaga as visitors at this point. Pellicer and his soccer players are very clear that a very important percentage of the permanence happens to conserve their power in the matches that are played in La Rosaleda.Cádiz gives 400 tickets for Sunday’s derbyMalaga will not be alone on Sunday at Ramón de Carranza (4:00 pm). The yellow club has given a consignment of 400 tickets at a price of 15 euros. From them, Malaga will today sell 140 for its subscribers that can be purchased at the ticket office from 10:00.

Yale Just as the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development prepares for steep budget cuts that end popular grant programs and slash funding for subsidized housing, the department’s head, Dr. Ben Carson, told Sirius XM radio host Armstrong Williams that with “the right mindset,” those who use HUD’s services could cease to need them altogether.Carson, HUD Secretary, sat down for an interview with Williams on Wednesday, telling the host “I think poverty to a large extent is also a state of mind.”He elaborated: “You take somebody that has the right mindset, you can take everything from them and put them on the street, and I guarantee in a little while they’ll be right back up there. And you take somebody with the wrong mindset, you can give them everything in the world, they’ll work their way right back down to the bottom.”Carson told Williams that the government can provide a “helping hand” to citizens in need, but that “sustaining them in a position of poverty” was not wise.”I think the majority of people don’t have that defeatist attitude, but they sometimes just don’t see the way, and that’s where government can come in and be very helpful,” Carson said. “It can provide the ladder of opportunity. It can provide the mechanism that will demonstrate to them what can be done.”The interview comes just days after the release of President Trump’s 2018 budget blueprint, which aims to cut $6.2 billion from the HUD annual budget. Specifically, the cuts will end the Community Development Block Grant program, as well as programs that address community blight and encourage first-time homeownership. The budget also cuts $2 billion from HUD’s rental assistance program, which provides rental subsidies for more than 4 million low-income U.S. households.“While the scale of this reduction is significant, we are prepared to meet its challenges,” Carson of the budget. “The proposed reductions are primarily from rental assistance reform and eliminating funding for programs that haven’t consistently been targeted to address need.”Carson also said that by 2019, HUD will present a comprehensive “path for work-able families to move toward self-sufficiency.”center_img Secretary Carson Talks Mind Over Matter in Housing Struggles Sharelast_img read more
