Specialists in relegation: The players who lost the category the most times

The decline in football is usually one of the worst moments in the career of any player, not only because of downgrading, but because of the economic loss it represents.

Around the world, there are several footballers who have descended on more than one occasion.

Players with the most relegations in the history of world football

The former Boca Juniors goalkeeper, Carlos Navarro Montoya, is one of the players who experienced the most decreases in his career.

The first time was when he was part of Extremadura of Spain and lost the category in Season 96-97, a year later he experienced the same terror, but now with Merida.

Bad luck accompanied him for one more championship in a row, so the 98-99 season fell again with Tenerife.

In 2007 and 2008 he dropped again, this time with Nueva Chicago and Olimpo de Bahía Blanca respectively.

Pablo Pinillos, a Spanish right-back, experienced a situation similar to Montoya’s; however, he only lost the category four times.

The first of them was with Levante, while years later he lived it with Racing de Santander, as well as with Deportivo la Coruña.

Nathan Blake, a Welsh player, had a seesaw in his career, as he lived playing several tournaments between the Premier League and the Championship.

He was relegated twice with Bolton Wanderers, as well as once with Sheffield United, Blackburn Rovers and Wolverhampton.

The English goalkeeper, Robert Green, has experienced several regrettable chapters in his career, two of them with Queens Park Rangers.

Green, who was England’s starting goalkeeper in South Africa 2010, also lost the category to Norwich in 04-05 and West Ham in 10-11.

The second wave of covid triggers the pressure in the ICUs of Extremadura

for 25% of ICU beds occupied by coronavirus patients. Specifically, it is at 35.71%, which is why it is at a point that the Ministry of Health indicators consider very high risk in the evolution of the pandemic.

It is the hospital center with the fewest intensive care beds in the region, a total of 14. That means that any spike in the complication of covid cases immediately raises the percentage of intensive care occupation. Therefore, it has been at similar levels of occupancy since the last week in August, with the exception of the fourth week in September. In fact, in the update carried out by the Extremadura Health Service (SES) on Friday of last week, of the six patients in the ICU of Plasencia, five are admitted because of the virus.

In the rest of the hospitals in the region, the pressure exerted by covid patients is much less, although in all it is above 15%. The regional average of ICU beds occupied by coronavirus patients is 16.6%, as stated on Friday by the Minister of Health, José María Vergeles, who used the report of the Center for the Coordination of Health Alerts and Emergencies (CCAES) . In that same document it is noted that the national average is almost ten points higher than that of Extremadura.

The most up-to-date data from the Extremadura Health Service (SES) raise the occupancy of the ICUs by covid patients to 17.83%. This is the highest percentage of the entire second wave.

The region is at very high risk in the indicators of cumulative incidence of the disease at fourteen and seven days. The first amounts to 512.5, when the limit is 250, and the second reaches 304.67, well above the 125 mark. That is, Extremadura not only exceeds, but also doubles the accumulated incidence rates that they are considered very high risk.

512.5 is the accumulated incidence of covid at 14 days in Extremadura. This is one of the indicators that Health uses to assess risk and places the region at a very high level
In numbers

The indicator of global positivity is also framed at very high risk – from 15% -. In the latest CCAES report, it is reported that 15.53% of the virus detection tests carried out in the region during the week of October 20-26 were positive.

At the moment, pressure in regional ICUs is at high risk, between 15% and 25%. Although the SES understands that it is a medium level, since in order to calculate the levels, one must take into account “the total hospital capacity not installed, but included in the contingency plan.” The high level would place Extremadura on alert 3, according to the document ‘Coordinated response actions to control the transmission of COVID-19’, published by the Interterritorial Council of the National Health System. This point means that there is “uncontrolled and sustained community transmission that exceeds the response capacities of the health system”.

This same text indicates that the health authorities must recommend to the population not to leave the home unless it is essential. Likewise, it points out that it is convenient to assess the limitation of entrances and exits from the territorial area and go to work in an exceptional way and maintaining the measures of physical distancing, hygiene and prevention.

By hospitals

Since the second wave of the pandemic began in mid-August, the increase in covid patients in Extremadura’s ICUs has been constant, although with slight fluctuations. In the second week of August, only 1.27% of the beds were occupied by coronavirus patients and last Friday that percentage was already at 17.83%. A growth of more than 16 percentage points.

It is a figure that coincides almost exactly with the evolution of the occupation of all intensive care places. In the week of August 14 it was 29.93% and at the end of this week it stood at 47.77%, about 17 points more. This points directly to the covid as the reason that has triggered the pressure on ICUs in the region.

However, not all hospitals in the region are suffering it in the same proportion. The largest centers have a higher percentage of total occupation due to the fact that they dedicate a large part of their resources to patients with other pathologies.

Thus, the hospitals in the health areas of Cáceres and Badajoz have ICUs at more than 60% of their capacity – 66.6% and 61.4%, respectively -, but the covid does not represent 20 % in no case. Although it is true that his coronavirus admitted to intensive care, as in Plasencia, are at the highest of the second wave.

On the contrary, in the health areas of Mérida, Plasencia and Don Benito, those infected with covid in their ICUs represent a high percentage of the total. In all more than 40%.

In absolute number, there are 29 covid patients in intensive care in the region as a whole, according to data from the Ministry of Health. It is a number that has undergone a great jump in the last week, since in the October 23 report there were 17, which represented 10.82% of ICU beds, seven points less than at present.

Despite being a high number, it is still far from the nearly 60 hospitalized for coronavirus who were at the same time in Extremadura’s ICUs during the month of April.


The virus maintains, according to Health, 290 people admitted to the region. Less severe cases are found in so-called acute beds. The occupation of these ranges between 5.5%, in the Coria hospital, and 10.91%, in Llerena-Zafra. Only the Mérida hospital is outside these parameters, which with 78 patients has more than 17% of its beds occupied by covid.

In the global region, Vergeles highlighted on Friday that 10.2% of the plant spaces are currently destined for people infected with the virus. “This is a percentage lower than the national average, which is 14.7%,” insisted the counselor in his speech.

Evolution, on the other hand, does not invite optimism. Just a week ago, the beds occupied by covid patients was 6.09%, following the same ministerial report that Vergeles referred to.

It will soon be a year since Prince Harry and Meghan Markle left for the United States never to return. They announced it on January 18 after spending more than a month on vacation in Los Angeles, where they spent Christmas with Meghan’s mother instead of with the Royal Family, as had been tradition.

By Vanity Fair

Of course, before formally abandoning their life as royals, the Sussexes returned to the UK in March to say goodbye and finalize the deals for their long-awaited freedom, which was finally granted by Queen Elizabeth II in April. And since then, they have never seen each other again in person.

That is why all the British people were anxious to know how the next Christmas would go when Harry and Meghan had to return yes or yes to England. Although not for pleasure, but because on January 11 the trial that the dukes are holding against Associated Newspaper, which owns several tabloids, is scheduled to be held in London, which they accuse of publishing false information about them.

But according to what has just been learned, finally that Christmas return could not take place. Well, the judge in charge of the case accepted the formal request that Harry and Meghan’s lawyers have sent to delay this meeting in court for several months.

StarCraft 2 stops producing content 10 years after launch, but Blizzard will keep it alive

It seems that new games based on the franchise are not being ruled out, with no sequel announced yet.

In July 2010 it was put on sale StarCraft 2, a game that has remained the dominant RTS as it was with its predecessor. Now, Blizzard announces the cessation of development of new content for this title, which means that we will not have more commanders or chests to buy. But that does not necessarily mean that he will die.

Of course, the lack of news will put off many players, but the servers will remain active as up to now and their developers have confirmed that we will continue to have updates with balance adjustments and bug fixes, “focusing primarily on what matters most to our core and competitive community.”

Qualifying this last point, Blizzard ensures that SC2 will continue to maintain its usual representation in the eSports scene from the hand of ESL Gaming and GSL. What about the IP as such? In the past, the Warcraft fathers had no qualms about listing their most relevant games for the future. Right now StarCraft doesn’t have a sequel on the horizon, but it seems that something like this is not ruled out.

Or at least, it is what can be read between the lines following the closing of the entry. Producer Rob Bridenbecker concludes, “We will keep you posted on any and all plans we have for future forays into the Koprulu sector.” In the absence of something more specific, we remind you that Blizzard has announced Overwatch 2 Y Diablo IV (plus the spin-off Immortal) as well as the imminent expansion Shadowlands WoW, so it will surely be a while until we see their next big game.
