Champions League player watch: Which transfer targets shined on the night?

first_img 6 6 6 6 6 James Rodriguez and Isco (Real Madrid) – Scouts for these two will have been disappointed as neither made the field in their 3-0 victory over Wolfsburg. Ricardo Rodriguez (Wolfsburg) – The Swiss star, who is interesting Man United amongst others, was forced inside more than usual as he contended with ex-Tottenham winger Gareth Bale and was also dropping deeper, which isn’t too surprising given Real Madrid’s desire to turn the tie around. He still did well though, making more successful tackles than any other player on the night (four). 6 Premier League clubs will have been keeping a keen eye on last night’s Champions League clashes as they plot summer transfer moves.Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester United are among the teams who will be having an overhaul once the season ends and they may well have had scouts in the stands to watch targets on Tuesday night.Yesterday, we highlighted seven stars who may well be being watch, so how did they get on in their respective matches? talkSPORT takes a look.Click the right arrow above to see how the Paris Saint-Germain, Wolfsburg and Real Madrid stars got on… Edinson Cavani (Paris Saint-Germain) – Click the right arrow above to see how more transfer targets got on… – The Chelsea target saw a shot well saved by Joe Hart ten minutes from time when he was clean through on goal – but that was his only chance of the game. He appeared restricted by Laurent Blanc’s 3-5-2 formation and was unable to showcase himself. Marquinhos (Paris Saint-Germain) – The Brazilian, who is wanted by Chelsea, Arsenal and Manchester United put in another good defensive performance in PSG’s backline, many fans believe the 21-year-old should be starting ahead of David Luiz, while the decision to start Serge Aurier instead of him in the first leg against Man City still rankles with many. The centre back was solid in possession, while also making four interceptions, four clearances and three successful tackles. Zlatan Ibrahimovic (Paris Saint-Germain) – The Swedish striker, linked with Manchester United, will be glad to see the back of Joe Hart after the England shot-stopper twice denied him with excellent saves. The performances of Eliaquim Mangala and Nicolas Otamendi also played a part in his inability to power PSG through to the semi-finals. Adrien Rabiot (Paris Saint-Germain) – Arguably one of PSG’s best players’ on the night, the French, who has been chased by Arsenal and Tottenham, had to make things tick in the absence of Marco Veratti and Blaise Matuidi. Thiago Motta’s exit through injury just before half-time added to the expectation on him but he dealt with it well, making more successful dribbles than any other player on the pitch (six), and more successful tackles (seven) than anyone else too.last_img read more

As of next year, the group will run events and music classes in its place.Frankie was born in Belfast in 1955, became one of Ireland’s best known traditional flute players through his work with the band Altan which he managed and founded with his partner Mairéad Ní Mhaonaigh.Frankie and Mairéad set the seeds for Altan with their ground breaking album Ceol Aduaidh on the Gael Linn label.Frankie, a naturally gifted teacher and communicator, was part of a robust wave of young Northern flute players who came to the fore in the ’70s and ’80s. Like his contemporaries, Frankie drew inspiration from the older generation of Ulster musicians and singers. Scoil Gheimhridh Frankie Kennedy was established in December 1994 following Frankie’s untimely death from cancer in September of that year.The school’s vision is to continue his huge contribution to Irish traditional music, especially the music and song of Donegal.This year’s event, the last Frankie Kennedy Winter School by that name, will run at the end of December with dates to be confirmed. END OF AN ERA AS FRANKIE KENNEDY WINTER SCHOOL TO CLOSE was last modified: October 24th, 2013 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Frankie Kennedy Winter Schoollast_img read more
