A grande contratação do Benfica : Simão Sabrosa Agosto 31, 2005

Filed under: Uncategorized — looking4good @ 9:39 pm
Grande movimento também no Sporting. Marek Cech no Porto.

José Veiga declara que o Benfica fez três grandes contratações: Karagounis, Miccolli e o maior de todos Simão Sabrosa! Foi a mais cara de todas : 18.000.000 Euros pagos em cash!

O Benfica esticou a corda até aos 20 milhões, o Liverpool chegou aos 18, o Benfica foi intransigente, Simão não saiu e ficou a “perder” 3 milhões de euros/ano, livre de impostos!!

Fico contente em termos desportivos que Simão fique (desde que não falhe mais penalties), mas daí a dizer-se que foi o maior reforço do Benfica?! É de facto inacreditável o que os senhores do futebol conseguem dizer.

Entretanto o último dia de inscrições de jogadores foi agitado e o Sporting também registou grande movimentação. Rochemback saiu para o Middlesbrough. Wender, como já havíamos dito ontem, ingressou no Sporting, mas a novidade do dia foi a contratação de João Alves(ex- Sp. Braga) por três anos.

Mas o Porto também inscreveu um novo jogador na Liga, o eslovaco Marek Čech que representava o Sparta de Praga. Tem 22 anos, 1,80 e actua preferencialmente no meio-campo

Simão a caminho do Liverpool

Filed under: Uncategorized — looking4good @ 11:48 am

O melhor jogador do Benfica está a ser negociado para o Liverpool que já chegou aos 15 milhões de euros. Luís Filipe Vieira aumentou a fasquia para os 20! É muito dinheiro, de facto.

A verdade é que terminando hoje as inscrições o Benfica em vez de se reforçar como precisava corre é o risco de perder o melhor jogador. Depois de Miguel, vai Simão.

No Benfica, quem falha um penalty vai embora, dizia humoristicamente um adepto!

Karagounis e Miccolli no Benfica. Wender no Sporting Agosto 30, 2005

Filed under: Uncategorized — looking4good @ 10:15 pm

Não há fome que não dê em fartura. O Benfica contratou dois “números 10” isto é dois jogadores de apoio ao ponta de lança. Ponta de lança é que não foi possível arranjar!

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

Karagounis representava o Inter e assinou contrato por três temporadas a “custo zero”. Foi o marcador do 1º. golo do Euro 2004 e é Campeão da Europa pela Grécia (tal como Fyssas que o Benfica, dispensou!). Giorgios Karagounis nasceu a 6 de Março de 1977 em Pyrgos, na Grécia, é centrocampista. Tem 1,76m e cerca de 74 Kg. Desde 1998/99 representou o Panathinaikos, passando para o Inter em 2003/2004

Foi difícil convencer a Juventus a emprestar Miccolli ao Benfica por uma época, tendo o Benfica a opção de compra do jogador no fim do empréstimo por cerca de 5 milhões de Euros. Fabrizio Miccolli nasceu no dia 27 de Junho de 1979 em S. Donato, província de Lecce; tem 1,68 m e 64 Kg é avançado. Miccolli jogou na época 2002/03 no Perugia tendo marcado 9 golos em 34 jogos.
Na época seguinte passou para a Juventus onde participou em 25 jogos, marcando 8 golos na prova nacional e fez 6 jogos na Liga dos Campeões marcando 1 golo. Na época passada representou a Fiorentina tendo obtido 12 golos em 35 jogos. É um jogador de baixa estatura (tipo Rui Barros) forte no um para um. Em 2004 num jogo particular entre a selecção de Portugal e Itália marcou um dos golos da vitória italiana por 2-1.
Entretanto no mercado interno o bracarense Wender sempre acabou por ir parar a Alvalade, assegurando o Sp. de Braga por sua vez o brasileiro Rossato que estava ao serviço da Real Sociedade.
