Europa League review – Thurs 30th Sept
The Anfield aces were held 0-0 by Utrecht in Holland and then City came from behind to earn a 1-1 draw at home to Italian giants Juventus.
Adam Johnson snatched a point, bringing his side level in the 37th minute when he took advantage of a glorious through-ball from Yaya Youre. The winger showed good vision to race in from the right and sweep the ball home from inside the area.
It was just the boost City needed after falling behind to a goal from Vincenzo Iaquinta in the 11th minute.
With Jerome Boateng backing off, Iaquinta cut inside from the left before unleashing a shot that went beyond Joe Hart and into the corner of the net.
Veteran striker Alessandro Del Piero hit the underside of the bar with a late free-kick with both sides good value for their point.
Earlier, Liverpool picked up a hard-earned point with a goalless draw away to Utrecht.
The Merseysiders had precious few opportunities although Fernando Torres did fire over with his left foot early in the second half when he might have hoped to hit the target.
And the visitors should have taken the lead in the 57th minute when Dirk Kuyt crossed from the right to near post where Torres, eight yards out, saw his first-time shot tipped around the post by Michel Vorm.
Raul Meireles came to his side’s rescue, clearing off the line from Michael Silverbauer’s header after Pepe Reina had failed to claim a corner from Dries Mertens.
Without the rested Steven Gerrard, Liverpool lacked a spark. It was a solid but sometimes laboured display by Roy Hodgson’s side who will still be pleased to come away with a clean sheet and a valuable point.
A draw in the Stadion Galgenwaard, where the hosts had won their previous six matches, was no disgrace but it was hardly one of those classic, gritty away performances in Europe.
Roy Hodgson’s side, who had five successive Europa League victories prior to this match, were dominated for long periods and their clean sheet owed much to goalkeeper Jose Reina and that goalline clearance from Meireles.”
>My family and I are so excited for Sacramento’s annual St. Patrick’s Day block party, and we hope that every year we can create a better
experience for everyone.
After a year of reflection and many debates, we have decided to add a charitable aspect to our block party. We felt that we had a wonderful
opportunity to bring Sacramentans together for St. Patrick’s Day, and that we could do so while giving back to the community that has been
so supportive of us.
This year we have two charity events that take place during our block party on March 17. The 20/30 Club will be raising money for the UC Davis Medical Center Children’s Cancer Center, and local firefighters will be cooking the event’s food to raise money for the Burn Institute.
We also have an amazing charity event that takes place March 15 at de Vere’s. This year we have the privilege to host alongside the Keaton Raphael Memorial the annual St. Baldrick’s Day event.
The St. Baldrick’s Foundation is the world’s largest volunteer-driven fundraising event for childhood cancer research. At St. Baldrick’s events all throughout the year, brave volunteers shave their heads, raising funds for research. Like runners in a marathon, “shavees” collect donations from family, friends and associates. The foundation receives these funds and makes grants to research experts to find new and better treatments for fighting kids’ cancers.
Keaton Raphael Memorial is the host and event organizers for both the Roseville and Sacramento events.
“Shaving my head in 2003 in honor of my son Keaton remains one of the highlights of my life,” said Robyn Raphael, founder of The Keaton Raphael Memorial. “I gave only hair. Keaton gave his life!”
KRM is a local childhood cancer organization established in 1998 that raises funds to assist local childhood cancer families and childhood cancer research.
Since 2003, KRM has shaved thousands of heads. This year will mark the eighth Annual St. Baldrick’s Celebrations KRM has hosted. The Keaton Raphael Memorial hosts some of the largest St. Baldrick’s celebrations in the nation. In 2009, 565 heads were shaved – 35 of which were women – and a total of $125,887 was raised.
We hope that we can gain the support of the community for this event that will now take place at our pub annually. This great cause will be a wonderful way to start off our St. Patrick’s Day celebrations every year.
St. Baldrick’s Day originated on the east coast in pubs as a way to raise money for childhood cancer research and now has participants all
over the country. We are proud to be able to host this event and keep the tradition of St. Baldrick’s alive. One hundred percent of the money raised during this event is donated to research and ultimately contributes to saving lives.
Donations can come in a few forms, from shaving one’s hair to monetary support or even volunteering your services to help at local St. Baldrick’s events. If you are interested in learning more or participating in any way, please check out the site here. For the record, I’m shaving what hair I have! There are a few other Sacramentans getting involved in the before-and-after fund raiser, and I salute them for it.
Please support our Northern California families by shaving your head and raising money to help find a cure.
>Every 3 and a half minutes a child is diagnosed with cancer.
Despite some advances in research, childhood cancer still remains the # 1 disease killer of our children in the U.S.
Thanks to the efforts of quite a few good people in Sacramento, we at de Vere’s Irish Pub will be hosting over 100 shavees on Monday, March 15th. People from every walk of life will be shaving for a cure and raising money for childhood cancer research. We are proud to be hosting this event and are so excited at all the community members who stepped up to get involved. On behalf of our family, the Keaton Raphael Memorial, and St. Baldrick’s, we can’t thank you enough for getting involved.
Exciting News: Michael Ault, Executive Director of the Downtown Sacramento Partnership and Steve Hammond, the Sacramento Convention and Visitors Bureau President and CEO have committed to shaving this year. And trust me, they have nice heads of hair!
