The most beautiful move of Atlético de Madrid’s Infernal Wing

first_imgPeiro he was, long before hearing that metaphor in cryptic language technicians, the “third man” who came to the goal from the shadows; a footballer so modern that today would be priceless in the midst of the speedy reign. Necklace, also fast, he lowered a ball from the sky as if it had paste on the instep and could put it wherever he wanted at any distance, then. The two were overflowing: by the left profile The child; for the two of us The Greyhound. They couldn’t give more to Athlete: Enrique Collar his sports life; Joaquín Peiró half of it and the financial salvation of the club when he asked him to leave.They drew wonderful plays from Peiró to Collar, from Collar to Peiró… But the most beautiful was missing. On March 18, 2020 Joaquín Peiró died. The plague prevented the warmth of his own, the hand held by his love forever; that of a son upon the heart; prayer in goodbye quiet. As in so many Spanish homes, and around the world, pain upon pain. Nor could the loyal ones gather by the hundreds to accompany him in the farewell. The next day they took him to the Canillas Cemetery, his town, which was when the promising cyclist Joaquin I traveled to Madrid by bicycle. They allowed a very close relative to come, four people. A crown of the Atlético de Madrid, another of his Legends, one more of the Federation. And then, like a ball that falls just in time to splice it, like the partner’s pass that you interpret before it is thrown without the need of a gesture; like the three seconds in which a goal is drawn, a fourth crown appeared to hug Peiro. On the metropolitan green of its leaves an endless number of red and white carnations had been born. And a slogan crossed his waist from side to side: ‘WITH LOVING, YOUR PARTNER OF THE INFERNAL WING’. La Gradona, white scarves in the wind, roared again, all standing by Peiro Y Necklace“ “The ball came through the air after the Enrique Collar right into space. Joaquín Peiró He threatened to get closer to the pitcher and after starting, he turned and looked for the ball to the empty place between centrals. With that move, the Hell Wing was always in check. And many times, checkmate. Goal. What is unique is that the exact, geometric launch of Collar was by hand! Those two geniuses had come up with that particular trick by mere repetition. Once it went well, no one knows when, and look. Maybe that throw-in occurred to Enrique any afternoon in Murcia when Ramón Colón took the two of them to ascend to the Pepper. They did it. In La Condomina the wing began to be hellish.An afternoon of paella and laughter, Enrique Collar He told us that the hellish thing was born from some Brazilian rivals who told the press about the devilishness of that pair of kids who were scorching the red and white band on the left. His exploits are in the Hemeroteca and even more in the indelible memory of the Atlético de Madrid. The infinite class of Necklace, the stellar overflow of PeiroThey ended up composing the best left-handed duo in the world when Joaquín was transferred to El Toro. Jorge Griffa says so. Amen.last_img read more

And analysts have plenty to say about it.The tech giant on Tuesday reported fiscal second quarter earnings that initially seemed disappointing. Apple’s revenue from iPhones fell 17% to $31 billion year-over-year while profits dropped 16% to $11.6 billion.But investors who looked more deeply in the results found reasons for optimism. IPhone sales fell in January and February, but March was strong—signaling that they had turned a corner. And Apple’s services business, which includes revenue from the App Store, Apple Music, and iCloud, had $11.5 billion in sales, up 17% from $9.9 billion in the year-ago quarter.Services now brings in more revenue than both the Mac and iPad divisions combined. That size, coupled with Apple CEO Tim Cook kicking off a call with investors on Tuesday by talking about services, made clear just how critical the division has become in Apple’s product mix.Encouraged by the results, investors sent Apple’s shares up 4.9% on Wednesday to $210.52.In notes to investors on Tuesday, several Apple analysts said they were impressed by the company’s performance. And although Apple’s biggest-selling device, the iPhone, is struggling, many of them were optimistic about stronger results overall for the company in the near future.Here’s what they had to say:J.P. Morgan Finds Positive Signs in ChinaJ.P. Morgan analyst Samik Chatterjee said he expects Apple to grow revenue in the coming quarters. Chatterjee was especially pleased by Apple’s performance in China, where sales declined 22% year-over-year, but showed improvement over the 27% decline in the previous quarter. Price cuts and expanded trade-in programs in China that encourages customers to ditch old devices for new ones seemed to be lifting sales there, Chatterjee said.J.P. Morgan’s 12-month price target on Apple’s shares, which are currently at $214.52, is $235.eMarketer Looks to the iPhoneEMarketer analyst Yoram Wurmser voiced skepticism about Apple’s earnings the growth in Apple’s services business couldn’t offset the 17% year-over-year decline in iPhone revenue.“The long-term growth of the company still depends directly and indirectly on iPhone sales,” said Wurmser, referring to the money the company collects from iPhone owners who subscribe to its services.During his call with investors on Tuesday, Apple CEO Tim Cook said that he’s unconcerned about the iPhone’s declining revenue. In a sign of hope, he pointed out that iPhone sales declined more steeply early in the quarter than at the end, and that he and fellow executives “like the direction” the iPhone division is going.Needham Talks EcosystemsNeedham analyst Laura Martin said that growth in Apple’s services division bolsters the “ecosystem” argument— that people who buy Apple devices are more likely to subscribe to services like Apple Music or iCloud. Because they’re using Apple’s services, those customers are more likely to buy more Apple hardware at some point.The average Apple customer lives in that ecosystem for 10 years before considering alternatives, like Android or Samsung smartphones, Martin said. It’s something that Apple’s services business has already benefited from and will continue to do so over time.“We believe the Apple ecosystem is approaching 950 million unique ‘subscribers,’” Martin said, referring to subscriber to the company’s services. Needham estimates that those subscribers own a total of 1.4 billion Apple devices.Needham’s 12-month price target on Apple’s stock is $225.Morgan Stanley Feels Good About the Next QuarterMorgan Stanley analyst Katy Huberty expects Apple’s fiscal third quarter to be strong, noting that sales across iPhone and other key areas, like wearables, accelerated in March and remained robust in April. Huberty believes that trend, coupled with similarly momentum in services, could be enough to help Apple’s financial performance and push its shares higher in the coming weeks.Morgan Stanley has a $240 12-month price target on Apple’s shares.UBS Looks to QualcommEarlier this month, Apple and Qualcomm settled their nearly two-year long patent dispute and signed a six-year deal for Qualcomm to supply Apple with chips for its devices. Most industry watchers say Apple signed the agreement to get access to Qualcomm’s 5G modems so that future iPhones can connect to ultra-fast 5G wireless networks.In a note to investors on Tuesday, UBS analyst Timothy Arcuri called Apple’s Qualcomm deal “neutral” to the iPhone’s maker’s future performance. More importantly, Arcuri questioned how Apple’s iPhone sales could be impacted by adding a 5G modem in next year’s iPhones.Arcuri said that 5G modems will be more expensive than the current 4G modems Apple uses. Unless Apple can increase iPhone prices enough to offset that higher cost, the company’s iPhone profit margins may shrink. But it’s not a problem today, Arcuri said, and for now, Apple’s iPhone division is pointing “in the right direction.”UBS has a $235 12-month price target on Apple shares.You May Like HealthFormer GE CEO Jeff Immelt: To Combat Costs, CEOs Should Run Health Care Like a BusinessHealthFor Edie Falco, an ‘Attitude of Gratitude’ After Surviving Breast CancerLeadershipGhosn Back, Tesla Drop, Boeing Report: CEO Daily for April 4, 2019AutosElon Musk’s Plan to Boost Tesla Sales Is Dealt a SetbackMPWJoe Biden, Netflix Pregnancy Lawsuit, Lesley McSpadden: Broadsheet April 4last_img read more
