Ronaldo even more vital to Portugal than to Real

first_imgPortugal coach Fernando Santos is counting on Cristiano Ronaldo to use another impressive season with Real Madrid as a springboard to a strong Euro 2016 campaign.Ronaldo joined his national team in training on Sunday, eight days after scoring the winning penalty against Atletico Madrid for Real to lift the Champions League trophy.His presence is a boost for Portugal, who lost 1-0 to England in a friendly last week and take on Estonia on Wednesday in Lisbon in their final warm-up game.Santos had wanted to give Ronaldo and Real defender Pepe a chance to a catch their breath before they joined the team.“They needed to rest,” Santos told Spanish sports magazine Marca.“It’s better for everyone that they arrive happy and with that extra bounce after achieving their aims.”Ronaldo scored 51 goals in 48 games in all competitions for Real this season.“If he is so important for Real, you can only imagine how significant he is for Portugal. Certainly the same or even more.“When you have players that score 50 to 60 goals per season, and who can always score, they are of vital importance. It’s impossible to quantify.”Ronaldo’s fitness is a concern, with tendonitis preventing him from being at his best at the 2014 World Cup when Portugal crashed out in the group stages.“There’s always talk that all the players must arrive 100 per cent,” Santos said. “But that is never the reality.“Obviously, it would be ideal if he was at his best but I would never stop calling Cristiano even if he was at 80 per cent.”Ronaldo, 31, came close to winning a trophy with Portugal at Euro 2004 but Greece beat them in the final.Portugal reached the semi-finals four years ago but were eliminated by Spain on penalties.“If we think of the generation of players we have had, it’s about time,” Santos said.“Portugal should have already won a European title but just like Spain, they took their time and now they have managed to win several trophies.”Portugal begin their Euro 2016 campaign against Iceland on June 14 in Marseille. They also face Austria and Hungary in Group F.last_img read more

Rangers agree compensation deal for Pedro Caixinha

first_imgPedro Caixinha is expected to be announced as Rangers manager on Friday after the club agreed a compensation deal with his current employers.Al-Gharafa say they have approved the move because it is “in the interests of the club financially”.Caixinha’s contract with the Qatari club is due to expire in 45 days. The Doha-based side added that their manager’s desire to leave outweighed their wish to keep him on. It’s expected the Portuguese coach will now travel to Scotland to complete his move, before taking in Sunday’s Old Firm derby from the stands.Caixinha was a goalkeeper during his playing career but moved into coaching at the age of 29.He worked mainly as an assistant until taking charge of Portuguese side União de Leiria in 2010. Caixinha managed Nacional and Mexican side Santos Laguna before moving to the Middle East.last_img read more

Upside-Down Christmas Trees Are Becoming a Big Trend This Year

first_imgFeel like the entire world is turned upside-down?  Why not let your Christmas tree make that metaphor. So what’s the point?  Well, if you’re into serious religious symbolism, the upside-down tree is big in central and Eastern Europe because people think it resembles the shape of Jesus on the cross. Apparently, UPSIDE-DOWN CHRISTMAS TREES are trendy this year. You can either mount your tree to the ceiling so it hangs, or buy an artificial tree that’s designed to stand upside-down.  Pretty much every store sells them now, from Home Depot to Target. Or if you’re more into aesthetics, the upside-down tree shows off your ornaments better, because they’re dangling into the air, not being covered up by thicker branches underneath.last_img read more

DVC Monthly Preview – December 2018

first_imgShare This!Welcome to the December installment of our monthly Disney Vacation Club preview. This month, we round up the latest news, including an upcoming price increase on Copper Creek Points and information about a DVC tasting cruise activity at Walt Disney World. We’ll also take a look at some common DVC owner questions.Booking WindowsThis month, here are some booking window dates to keep in mind. For your home resort (11-month booking window), in December, you will be able to book for dates in November 2019. For all other DVC resorts (seven-month booking window), this month you will be able to book for dates in July 2019.Topiary buffalo stands guard between the Boulder Ridge and Copper Creek Villas.Booking directly through Disney, during the month of December 2018 there is virtually no availability at Walt Disney World or Disneyland. As usual, there is moderate availability at Hilton Head. With the exception of the two-week period including Christmas and New Year’s Day, Aulani is wide open, with 1-bedroom, 2-bedroom, and 3-bedroom villas available nearly every night. During January 2019, currently there is wide availability at Hilton Head and Aulani. In January, Saratoga Springs has 1- and 2-bedroom availability during most of the month. There are Polynesian Village bungalows available during weekdays in the second half of January. If you’re looking to splurge, now’s the time!If you want to expand your options, you may want to explore renting points as an alternative to booking through Disney. (If you rent points through the affiliate link to David’s DVC rentals, TouringPlans receives a commission.)DVC and Disney NewsDVC members visiting WDW in December should purchase their Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party tickets as soon as possible. Some dates may sell out. Later winter visitors should keep an eye out for events related to Epcot’s International Festival of the Arts from January 18 – February 25, 2019. If you want to graze on tasting tidbits without the overwhelming madness of the Food & Wine Festival, the Arts Festival is a terrific option.DVC members may now book a new tasting cruise around the Seven Seas Lagoon. Members board pontoon boats at the Contemporary to explore the Lagoon, making stops at DVC resorts to enjoy food and beverage tastings. Stops include the Beaches Pool Bar at the Grand Floridian, Trader Sam’s at the Polynesian Village, and the Top of the World Lounge at Bay Lake Tower. The cruise cost $99 per person and is available on most Mondays through May 2019, setting sail at 3:00 p.m. To book, call member services at 800-800-9800. Reservations are required.Price Increase Coming on Copper Creek PointsMember services recently sent out a notice that the price per point at the Copper Creek Villas and Cabins at the Wilderness Lodge will increase from $182 to $188 on January 16, 2019. DVC is also running additional promotions offering savings of $1,000 to about $3,000 for Copper Creek purchases made prior to December 15, 2018. If you’ve been waffling on a purchase, this might be the time to act.Guest use grill at Saratoga Springs.DVC FAQHere’s where we tackle a frequently asked question or two about Disney Vacation Club.Question: Do I have to pay to park at the DVC resort hotels?Answer: During summer 2018, Disney added resort parking fees: $13 per night at value resorts, $19 per night at moderate resorts, $24 per night at deluxe resorts (which includes all the WDW DVC hotels). However, there is good news for DVC members. Members are still allowed free parking for up to two vehicles when staying at any of the WDW DVC hotels, whether they are paying with points or cash. If you are using DVC points to pay for a room at a non-DVC hotel at Walt Disney World, you are still allowed to park for free. DVC members paying cash to stay at a non-DVC hotel will be charged the parking fee. The valet parking rate at the deluxe and villa resorts is currently $33. All guests, including DVC members, using the valet parking service are required to pay the fee.Question: I’ve seen outdoor grills at my DVC resort. Do people really use them?Answer: There are outdoor grills available for guest use at many of the DVC resorts. In my experience, they’re used somewhat infrequently, so if you’re in the mood to cook up some burgers or hotdogs, or to indulge in some s’mores, it’s likely that you’ll have no problem finding an available grill. Charcoal briquettes and matches are available for sale in the resort shops. Tools like outdoor use tongs and spatulas are available to borrow in the DVC resort community centers.That does it for this month’s wrap-up. Got any DVC questions? Comments? Let us know below.last_img read more
