Kevin: “I wish Bale were on my team, it’s differential”

first_imgThey arrive at this appointment with another face after winning Sevilla.It was a balm, we finally breathed. I haven’t seen the team so happy in a while. I think it is another stone to add to the wall we are building.Why doesn’t Celta just work?By name you will not be up, you have to get to the field and prove it. So far we are not doing it and it is time to reflect. I think we can grow and in recent weeks we are competing well, deserving more points than we have.Is there fear that Aspas will see the fifth yellow and cannot play against Leganés?We have to think about the game he is playing now. La Real won in Copa a couple of weeks ago and we also have a chance to win. What are we going to say about Iago? He always helps us with goals and reading the game well. In the first round he had to cover Vinicius. What analysis does the Brazilian do? He will be the headline again at the Santiago Bernabéu.Hopefully he can take the position of Mallo. The truth is that it is a curious fact that of the thirteen matches in First, three are against Madrid. I hope there are more times.How do you remember last year’s experience?It was complicated for me because it came from an injury and I was out of competition. In the third minute I had to go from right to left side due to Juncà’s injury and the profile change was complicated. In spite of everything, we did a good defensive job, although it cost us to get up. Was your game tougher on a personal level?Playing at the Bernabéu is always very demanding. They are very high level players that take you to the limit.It was his turn to cover Asensio, Bale and Vinicius. Which was the most complicated?They are quite similar players in that they are very physical, but I think all Madrid players are brutal physical portents. They are very runners, have great driving skills and are very good at almost everything. I could not say which was the most complicated because everyone has their own.Bale is getting a lot of criticism. What do you think of Welsh?I wish he were on our team, he is a player out of series. Physically it is a wonder and has a lot of goal. He is a very differential player.center_img What match do you expect?We want it to be a disputed match and that it is open for both fronts and that in the end it can fall on our side.Is playing with five back a defensive strategy?I don’t know what we are going to do yet. The coach analyzes well what we can best according to the style of play of the rival. He is a player who likes to face and bargain. He is Brazilian of pure strain, although it is true that he does not find the goal as easily as Bale, but it must be tied shortly.Hazard returns, have you studied how to mark him?He is a very complete player who has a good dribble, a good finish and finds good passes. It has very good characteristics. It is among the best extremes in the world.last_img read more

Poston, master sidekick, dies at 85

first_imgOn “Mork and Mindy,” which starred Robin Williams as a space alien, Poston was Franklin Delano Bickley, the mindless boozer with the annoying dog. On “Newhart,” he was George Utley, the handyman who couldn’t fix anything at the New England inn run by Newhart’s character. And on Newhart’s show “Bob,” he was the star’s dim-bulb former college roommate. “In ways I don’t like to admit, I’m a goof-up myself,” Poston said in a 1983 interview. “It’s an essential part of my character.” Goof-up or not, Poston was a versatile actor who made his Broadway debut in 1947 playing five roles in Jose Ferrer’s “Cyrano de Bergerac.” One role called for him to engage in a duel, fall 10 feet, roll across the stage and vanish into the orchestra pit. Other actors had auditioned and failed but Poston, who in his youth had been an acrobat with the Flying Zepleys, did the stunt perfectly. He went on to play secondary roles in Broadway comedies and starred at regional theaters in shows including “Romanoff and Juliet” and “A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum.” For 10 years he was also a panelist on the popular TV quiz show “To Tell the Truth.” He made guest appearances on scores of television shows, including “Studio One,” “The Phil Silvers Show,” “The Defenders,” “Get Smart,” “The Bob Newhart Show,” “The Love Boat,” “St. Elsewhere,” “The Simpsons,” “Coach,” “Murphy Brown,” “Home Improvement,” “Touched by an Angel,” “Will & Grace,” “Dream On,” “Just Shoot Me!” and “That `70s Show.” Poston and his first wife, Jean Sullivan, had a daughter, Francesca, before their marriage ended in divorce. He married his second wife, Kay Hudson, after they met while appearing in the St. Louis Light Opera, and they had a son, Jason, and daughter, Hudson. Poston and Pleshette, who had appeared together in the 1959 Broadway play “The Golden Fleecing,” shared a brief fling before marrying other people. In 2000, when both were widowed, they reunited and were married the following year. Their paths had crossed on “The Bob Newhart Show” in the 1970s. Poston made several guest appearances on the sitcom in which Pleshette played Newhart’s wife. In 2006, Pleshette underwent chemotherapy for lung cancer that her agent said was caught at an early stage. Born in Columbus, Ohio, on Oct. 17, 1921, Poston moved from city to city as a child while his father hunted for work during the Depression. After two years at Bethany College, he enlisted in the Army Air Corps and flew troops to the European war zone during World War II. Besides Pleshette, Poston is survived by his children, Francesca Poston of Nashville, Tenn., Jason Poston of Los Angeles and Hudson Poston of Portland, Ore. A private service was planned for immediate family. Details of a public memorial service were to be announced later.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! Tom Poston, the tall, pasty-faced comic who found fame and fortune playing a clueless everyman on such hit television shows as “Newhart” and “Mork and Mindy,” has died. He was 85. Poston, who was married to Suzanne Pleshette, 70, died Monday night at home after a brief illness, a family representative, Tanner Gibson, said Tuesday. Bob Newhart remembered Poston as a “versatile and veteran performer and a kindhearted individual.” Billy Crystal, who starred in the 1978 film “Rabbit Test” in which Poston also appeared, was another admirer. “How rare that a gentle, sweet person could be so incredibly funny,” Crystal said in a written statement. “I grew up watching Tom on `The Steve Allen Show’ as a kid. What an incredible gift to become friends with him and to learn about comedy from a true professional. He was a combination of Stan Laurel and Jack Benny.” Poston’s run as a comic bumbler began in the mid-1950s with “The Steve Allen Show” after Allen plucked the character actor from the Broadway stage to join an ensemble of eccentrics for “man in the street” interviews. Don Knotts was the shaky Mr. Morrison. Louis Nye was the suave, overconfident Gordon Hathaway. Poston’s character was so unnerved by the television cameras that he couldn’t remember who he was. He won an Emmy for it, but when Allen moved the show from New York to Los Angeles in 1959, Poston stayed behind. “Hollywood’s not for me right now; I’m a Broadway cat,” he told a reporter at the time. When he finally moved west, he quickly began appearing in variety shows, sitcoms and films. His movie credits included “Cold Turkey,” “The Happy Hooker,” “Rabbit Test” and, more recently, “Christmas With the Kranks,” “Beethoven’s 5th” and “The Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement.” last_img
