Bordalás: “Ajax is still a favorite, no doubt”

first_imgDid you imagine a night like this?Honestly no. We had the most complicated team, a semifinalist of the Champions League and a great team. We always believe in what we do and the team played a great game. We minimize a team with great offensive vocation. We did not generate clear chances. Only in the final section the team went down a bit due to wear. This team does not know how to look back and in the last action we arrived with five players to finish that against. The 2-0 is a good result, but not definitive. What did you think of Deyverson’s game and his provocation at rest?We are very satisfied with all the players and especially with him. He scored and helped the team a lot. He was cooler than his peers and for high blood pressure and the work was very good. The goal was found in a very good team action. I have not seen what happened, but I have told everyone to forget about provocations.Were you disappointed in the style of Ajax?It has been the merit of Getafe that Ajax has not been able to develop the game we are used to.How should the second leg be raised?Now we have a very important match against a huge rival like Sevilla. The one in Amsterdam will be very difficult in a mythical scenario.Does Geta have more football than those who complain about his way of playing?We don’t have the talent of big teams because we are modest, but we do have a great offensive vocation and we are like that for something.How do you get everything to work so well?Players believe in work that is not a day’s flower. The player realizes that the job makes him better and the team wins. They are very happy with the interpretation of the game and that players who were unknown are making a great championship. A small team like Getafe could have a hard time in LaLiga, but you have to congratulate them all. Today there has been a fantastic atmosphere and we have all enjoyed it very much. Is it the most special game of your career?Fortunately I have left very satisfied with many Getafe matches. I always tell the boys not to set limits. Today was a great game, we enjoyed a lot of people. I congratulate the players and the fans.How do you leave Ajax without knocking on the door?A football team is like the machinery of a watch. If a part fails, the clock stops. Today we function as a clock. We neutralize a rival as powerful as Ajax with a great job.Is he now the favorite Getafe in this tie?It is still the Ajax without any doubt. They have fantastic offensive potential that they have already shown against large teams. We will enjoy this victory for a few hours and be aware that there are 94 minutes left before a team.last_img read more

A WHOLE NEW TROPICAL WORLD COMES TO LETTERKENNY

first_imgA Letterkenny businessman has invested almost €500,000 creating a unique tourist attraction which he hopes will ‘get wings’ soon!Clive Alcorn, part of the well-known Donegal family who run a florist and garden centre, is to launch his new venture ‘Tropical World’ next week.The new venture, which will be on an adjoining site to the old garden centre, will house a butterfly farm, as well as an aviary for parrots and owls and even a raccoon! Clive got the idea for the new 1,000sq metre tourist attraction when he visited a similar butterfly farm in Statford-Upon-Avon in England six years ago.“When I walked in I was amazed and I knew it was what I wanted to open back here in Donegal.“So I began researching and putting things in place and now I am delighted to say that we are about to open on Monday week.“It has been a labour of love but I am really passionate about it and I know people are going to love it,” he says. But the new centre is not just another business for Clive – he is passionate about teaching children about nature and all it has to offer.“I have always been an animal lover and this will give me a chance to spread that love and education of plants and animals to children,” he said.To assist in that education Tropical World has a fully-equipped education centre which will cater for school trips and teach children all about what is on display.And what a list of creatures Clive and his staff have gathered.As well as the unique collection of butterflies, children can get to see 18 different types of reptiles as well as loveable chipmunks. The centre is based overlooking stunning Lough Swilly and a picnic area has also been developed so people can bring their own lunches or buy food from Tropical World’s own cafe.Because of the recession Clive is conscious that money is tight and has introduced a range of family tickets and school deals for everyone who wants to see Tropical World.“We have sat down and tried to do the best deals we can because we want people to come back time and time again.“We want Donegal to have a new unique attraction that can also educate children about nature and all it has to offer. “It has been six years in the making from that first moment of inspiration but I am delighted that we’re just there now,” he said.Further information on this wonderful new project can be got from logging onto www.tropicalworld.ieEndsA WHOLE NEW TROPICAL WORLD COMES TO LETTERKENNY was last modified: March 28th, 2011 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:AlcornDonegal touristletterkennytropical worldlast_img read more
