Nor should we forget that Setién has had the real possibility of giving minutes to players of the subsidiary, especially in the Copa del Rey competition, where it was played with teams like Ibiza, Second B, but finally decided to bet on first team players in their vast majority.His predecessor in office, Ernesto Valverde, was also widely criticized for not betting on the people of the house. Nevertheless, During the two and a half seasons that he was in charge of the first team, the ‘Txingurri’ managed to debut a total of 14 players. The first on the list was striker José Manuel Arnaiz. From here came the premieres of Marc Cucurella, David Costas and Oriol Busquets. In their second campaign, eight kids premiered in the first team: Juan Miranda, Jorge Cuenca, Chumi, Riqui Puig, Moussa Wagué, Alex Collado, Abel Ruiz and Carles Pérez. And while he was in the 2019/20 academic year, Ansu Fati and Ronald Araujo debuted. The excuse that Setién has had little time to start working thoroughly with the quarry is a feasible argumentAlthough the coach himself has publicly acknowledged that he has not been convinced by the players in Blaugrana grassroots football. His phrase, “What do people want: the quarry or move on?” will go down in history. On the day of his presentation, Quique Setién claimed to have a special empathy towards the youth academy and the kids who rise from grassroots football, “if they push and earn it, they can play in the first team”, reason why more than one began to rub their hands believing that the image of a first team plagued by youth squads in the starting team would be repeated very soon. In any case, Very soon it began to be verified that from saying to fact there is a stretch: the initial bets for Riqui Puig or Ansu Fati were mitigated until they became little more than testimonials.In fact, Setién has not debuted any player from the quarry. In the three months he has been on the bench – although the last one has been confined by the coronavirus pandemic – he has had the opportunity to give the alternative to two players: striker Rey Manaj, which he called against Getafe on February 15 and defender Sergio Akieme, who called for the matches against Eibar and Naples, on February 22 and 25, respectively, due to the loss due to injury of Jordi Alba on the left wing. Neither of them finally debuted. Neither is goalkeeper Iñaki Peña, who has been called up in several games.
26.02.18 Planning to drive this week? Here’s the advice for car-owners ahead of the severe wintry weather Tuesday 27 Feb 2018, 8:42 AM Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article Feb 27th 2018, 6:02 AM 96,730 Views Image: Eamonn Farrell Updated 8.42am“THE BEAST FROM the East is coming our way,” warned Taoiseach Leo Varadkar, who asked people to pay “close attention” to any weather warnings that are issued in the coming days.Yesterday, the Taoiseach said any advice issued in relation to workplaces, travel and whether people should turn up for work “will be clear”.The polar vortex from Siberia, referred to as “the beast”, is expected to bring heavy snowfall and blizzard conditions on Thursday and Friday.Speaking on RTÉ’s Morning Ireland, Minister for Housing, Planning and Local Government Eoghan Murphy said that the forecast is “looking increasingly as predicted”, and the snowfall starting this evening “could potentially cause severe disruption for the country”.The National Emergency Coordination Group (NECG) outlined its preparation plans yesterday.It’s predicted that a red weather alert could be put in place for later in the week. The last time a code red was issued was for Storm Ophelia in October 2017.At the time, the NECG advised people to remain indoors and stay safe.However, there was confusion as to whether all businesses should close, and if people should go to work or remain at home.In the aftermath of the storm, Labour’s Brendan Howlin said there were lessons to be learned, and said the government should commit to issuing guidelines to the private sector as to what a red alert means for them and their employees.‘Genuine confusion’ At the time, the Taoiseach admitted that there was “genuine confusion for some people in the private sector because it was unclear to people as to whether they were to go into work or not”.He also acknowledged that a “better understanding of what a red alert means beyond the public sector and what it means in the private sector” needed to be developed.As a result, the government said in future, employers in the private sector will have to set our specific policy and guidelines as to whether they should remain open during red alerts.However, progress on mandatory guidelines has not yet been reached to date. Taoiseach Leo Varadkar Source: RollingNews.ieWhen asked about the issue yesterday, the Taoiseach suggested that the NECG advice issued later in the week could include advising people not to travel to work.“As it stands, the weather warning has not yet been issued, but I would ask people to pay close attention to any weather warnings and advice that is issued in the coming days.“Where advice is issued in relation to workplaces and travel, that will be clear and we’ll either be asking people to stay at home and not make unnecessary journeys or if they are in work already to stay in work and not make unnecessary journeys. But as I said, we are not in that position yet to issue that weather warning,” Varadkar told reporters.Speaking today, Murphy reinforced that no advisories were being issued as of yet. He said: “We try to be as clear as possible.Businesses need more direction. We can’t tell a business how to operate [but] the onus is on the employer to put the safety of staff at their forefront.Potential schools closureMurphy was asked about the possibility of schools closing due to the bad weather.

Where employees are present in the workplace, care should be taken to remain vigilant for any worsening conditions. Consideration should also be given to how long it will take somebody to commute home safely,” it added.With reporting from Sean MurrayRead: Here are the plans in place to get Ireland through Storm Emma>What exactly is the ‘Beast from the East’?

I want this council to send a clear message to the management of Pallas Foods that it is not acceptable in this day and age to refuse to engage with the union of the workers choice in order to explore options to retain these jobs.”Cllr Browne also revealed that the only options put to Pallas Foods employees in a six page document, was either voluntary or compulsory redundancy, or redeployment to Dublin.“This document did not address, in any way, alternatives to redundancies or redeployment. The Protection of Employment Act 1977, Part 2 section 9, clearly identifies the obligation on employers to consult employees’ representatives in such circumstances, and Irish law does facilitate looking at various options to mitigate job losses,” he said.He claimed that job losses at Pallas Foods were being implemented without any meaningful engagement with the workers concerned, without any input from their union (SIPTU), and selection for redundancies was being made without any transparency regarding the process.“Sinn Fein view this as a blatant disregard of the employee’s rights and indeed a total disregard for the potential of retention of employment in the Newcastle West area. At the very least, the company should allow workers the assistance of the professional help supplied by the State,” he concluded.SIPTU’s Limerick District Council the local authority’s call on the management of Pallas Foods to enter meaningful negotiations over the ongoing redundancies.SIPTU lead organiser Pat Condon commented, “We are delighted to receive the support of Limerick City and Council for our campaign for the Pallas Food workers. It’s great to see that there is widespread political support for our simple demand that the company engage with our union over these job losses.”“Our union’s prime concern is to protect the maximum number of jobs possible for our members, and ensure that there is a fair and transparent process regarding the selection for redundancies. It’s hard to believe that this far into the 21st century that there are still employers with 19th century attitude to workers rights,” he added.
