Benfica a anos-luz de distância do Top da Europa Agosto 6, 2005

Benfica 0 – 2 Juventus

Vinte e dois minutos apenas foi o tempo necessário para a Juventus, campeão de Itália, pôr em KO o Benfica, campeão de Portugal, em casa deste. Aos 5′ no primeiro remate à baliza 0-1. Ibrahimovic evita Luisão e do meio da rua remate por alto para um golo inesperado, ainda mais por Quim que de certeza não estava com a concentração necessária por que um golo daqueles …

O 2º. é tão inexplicável quanto o primeiro, mas por motivos diversos. O Benfica a apresentar um meio-campo com 3 médios defensivos ! (Beto-Petit-Manuel Fernandes) perde uma bola a meio campo (em que dois destes tiveram intervenção : passe deficiente de Manuel Fernandes para Beto que perde a bola) e o contra-ataque mortífero permite com toda a facilidade um 2 para 1 que a qualidade de jogadores como Ibrahimovic e Trezeget não permite desperdiçar.

O Benfica ainda teve quase de imediato a sua maior oportunidade de golo do jogo numa tabelinha Mantorras-Giovanni, mas em que este já na área mas apertado não consegue melhor que chutar contra o corpo de Bouffon. Um golo encarnado ainda poderia animar os adeptos e manter em alguma expectastiva o jogo, mas a verdade é que a diferença de qualidade de ambas as equipas foi evidente.

Apesar de alguma rispidez dos italianos não sancionada por uma equipa de arbitragem que é de direito de 2ª categoria mas que revelou de facto ser de 3ª. (como é possível nomear uma equipa de arbitragem destas para um jogo em que estão os campeões de Portugal e de Itália?) , com destaque para Simão Sabrosa e Beto que sofreram as consequências, o colectivismo e a maior velocidade de execução dos italianos (isto para já não falar na categoria tecnica individual de grande parte dos jogadores italianos) foi sempre superior ao Benfica.

Na 2ª. parte com os italianos mais retraidos e com as substituições operadas o Benfica finalmente passou a ter médios ofensivos (com a entrada de Kariaka e Nuno Assis) e deu a aparencia de equilibrar as coisas, mas a derrota foi inapelável. Poderia ter sido ainda assim amenizada ao minuto 91′ quando Ricardo Rocha (que também exagerou na rispidez na 2ª. parte quando passou para lateral esquerdo – mas este levou amarelo!) ganhou a Bouffon para o desvio na bola vinda num pontapé de canto, mas que não teve o caminho da baliza.

Muitas preocupações devem ficar principalmente para os adeptos encarnados depois desta incapacidade demonstrada pelo Benfica associada ainda ao desajustado esquema tactico preferido por Koeman face aos jogadores do plantel. É certo que no campeonato português não há nenhuma Juventus. Mas tirando Porto e Sporting todos os outros jogos são de ganhar. E não é com três médios defensivos no meio-campo e um ponta de lança (que ainda por cima não o é) desapoiado na frente que o Benfica vai marcar golos suficientes. Não se percebe, assim, as “críticas” de Koeman quando disse que o Benfica marcou na épocas passada poucos golos no Campeonato : a verdade é que agora está a marcar muito menos. E não se percebe a dispensa de Karadas -não sendo um craque não se vê ninguém com as caraterísticas físicas, de vontade e disponibilidade que ele demonstrava. Custa ver cruzamentos de Alex ou de Giovanni encontrar na área apenas Simão Sabrosa para concluir de cabeça!

Entretanto continua-se à espera dos jogadores que segundo LFV vão surpreender todos ao ponto de se dizer como é que estes jogadores foram para o Benfica? Bem vejo …devem ser da qualidade de Delibasic.

1945 August 06 Hiroshima – How can the men be so cruel?

Filed under: Uncategorized — looking4good @ 12:01 am
Today we live the memory (60 years ago) of one of the saddest days for the Humanity

HARRY S. TRUMAN’S ANNOUNCEMENT OF THE DROPPING OF AN ATOMIC BOMB ON HIROSHIMA

Address to the Nation, August 6, 194 “Sixteen hours ago an American airplane dropped one bomb on Hiroshima, an important Japanese Army base. That bomb had more power than 20,000 tons of TNT. It had more than 2,000 times the blast power of the British “Grand Slam,” which is the largest bomb ever yet used in the history of warfare. (read completely here).

Como pode o Homem ser tão cruel?! A Humanidade viveu há 60 anos um dos dias mais tristes da sua História. “A maior aposta científica da História” – Truman. Como é possível dizer isto?
