El Clasico: Isco hits back at rumours of his revolt against Zinedine Zidane

first_imgReal Madrid were humiliated by their fiercest rivals Barcelona at their own home on Saturday.The first El Clasico of this La Liga season ended 3-0 in favour of the Catalans while Real Madrid were left ruing over their too many little mistakes.As if the view of being trampled by their biggest rivals was not enough, Real Madrid players, especially Isco, was hit by media reports claiming of his revolt against manager Zinedine Zidane.According to media reports, Isco, Asensio and Gareth Bale were warming up but Isco refused to be subbed on and sat on the bench as soon as Zidane sent Nacho on the pitch following Dani Carvajal’s red card.Isco shot back at the rumours after the Clasico angrily spewing on Twitter “Stop spreading crap.”Isco added that he went back to the bench because he knew that Asensio and Bale will be sent in to play.Dejar de meter mierda que ya iban a salir mis otros dos compañeros… no sabía yo que sé podían hacer 4 cambios https://t.co/CFnYgNZcbM- ISCO ALARCON (@isco_alarcon) December 23, 2017″Stop spreading crap. I knew my other two team-mates were already going to be subbed on,” Isco said on his official Twitter account.He sarcastically further added, “I didn’t know four substitutions were possible.”Real Madrid have been hit by one or other controversy this season ever since their form has gone for a toss.From reports of rift between Sergio Ramos and Cristiano Ronaldo to rumours of unhappy players in the dressing room, Real Madrid have had a stressful campaign off the field as well.advertisementEven Marcelo took to Twitter to target the media and said “they kill us for things which are not true.”Hoy un dia duro!Pero no nos vamos a rendir nunca!Llevo aqui muchos años dando el maximo de mi y seguiré dando! nos matan por cosas q no son verdad! O no han comprendido o no quieren comprender: mi comentario ha sido explícitamente a la Prensa, no a nuestra afición.#M12- Marcelotwelve (@MarceloM12) December 23, 2017″Today a hard day! But we are not going to pay ever! I have been here many years giving the maximum of my and I will continue giving! They kill us for things which are not true! They have not understood or don’t want to understand: my comment has been explicitly to the press, not to our liking,” Marcelo tweeted.Sergio Ramos also displayed his grit on Twitter and said, “Screwed but not sunk. Hit but not sunk. Always #HalaMadrid Always #HalaMadrid.”Jodidos pero no hundidos.Hit but not sunk. Siempre #HalaMadridAlways #HalaMadrid- Sergio Ramos (@SergioRamos) December 23, 2017Saturday’s Clasico result was not the Christmas present Real Madrid were hoping to give the Bernabeu faithfuls and midfielder Toni Kroos apologised to the fans on Twitter but asked them to look at the larger picture of 2017 — the four trophies that Madrid have in their cabinet at the end of the year.Tough day because we started the game so well…But: Look at what we have achieved in 2017! You better celebrate this with your loved ones. Merry Christmas! pic.twitter.com/DXR3jI8zcj- Toni Kroos (@ToniKroos) December 23, 2017last_img read more

The Worthwhile MagazineWebsite Connection

first_imgSome publishers like separation between print and digital brands, allowing the Web site to be just close enough to exploit print’s brand stature while simultaneously developing unique and exclusive content, often catering to a very different audience. Yet for Field & Stream, which has just undergone a redesign and is under new editorial leadership with the appointment of Anthony Licata into the top editor spot, the magazine is moving purposefully toward a closer relationship with its Web-based alter ego.The ties between the two products, however, don’t simply rely on a half-page, “What’s Online” department in the magazine, or story callouts driving the reader online “for more on this topic.” A new front-of-book print department called Campfire is constructed largely from reader-generated content, spanning letters, stories, interview excerpts, reader tips, and blog excerpts that inherently drives the reader back online—either for more about a topic or to continue a debate. And the magazine benefits, too. Debates, discussion, or images, for example, that originate online, can be continued in print. “When I say we’re tying them together, we’re using our readers on our Web site to come up with stories and story ideas, which will end up in the magazine. It’s a little subtler than just pushing people back and forth.”last_img read more
