Deadline approaching quickly for restricted free agents

  Deadline approaching quickly for restricted free agents In a normal season, even restricted free agents that miss all of training camp have plenty of time to sign. To be eligible to play, they must have a contract signed and filed with the league by December 1, nearly two months after a normal NHL season begins. Two years ago we saw a negotiation go down to the witching hour between the Toronto Maple Leafs and William Nylander, with the young forward eventually signing a six-year, $45M deal just before the deadline. Nylander was in the lineup by December 6, though he never seemed to get comfortable and ended up having arguably his worst season as a professional.

The matches follow each other and are similar for Antoine Griezmann. Author of an honorable performance in the semi-finals against Real Sociedad with an assist to his credit, the French international stood out with his penalty completely missed during the penalty shootout. In the final tonight, the number 7 of Barça offered himself a double in an attempt to put an end to the long scarcity of FC Barcelona trophy and brandish a first title with the Culés in 2021.

Grizou, touched

As they set foot on the pitch at the Olympic stadium in Seville, the Athletic Club keeps the 2015 Spanish Supercup in mind as their last conquest. In a system shaped by architect Marcelino, the goal is to model his eleven on the same model as in his last Spanish Cup final played (and won) against Barça. Thus, the Basques are pressing high and showing themselves dangerous like Raúl García. The recent executioner of Real Madrid puts Marc-André ter Stegen on the parade despite a preliminary offside position (12th), then Ander Capa in turn warms the gloves of a German goalkeeper still in a state of grace (26th).

Grizou, sunk

How to proceed without Sergiño Dest, injured and replaced by Óscar Mingueza? The Batavian coach sees an early response thanks to Messi whose free kick touches the frame of Simón (53rd). On the other side, the Athletic puts pressure on a set piece and Raúl García thinks he gives his team a goal with a header, but the referee signals a positional offside after using the VAR (57th). Far from resigning themselves to the task, the Leones (Lions, in French) are voracious on a powerful strike from Iñaki Williams who narrowly misses (67th). At that time, Barça is round back and can hardly imagine Griezmann, yet author of a double on a new center of Alba (77th, 2-1) as the man of the evening. With good reason, since the Barcelona still crack on free kick with Asier Villalibre at the conclusion (90th, 2-2). Result? Everyone goes into overtime.

What is the point of playing fifteen extra minutes, if not to see Messi crack at the end of the match and be excluded for a punch given to Villalibre? Not much, other than knowing what we already know: FC Barcelona is going through a crisis of which it does not yet know the end.
