Nomeação de árbitros Agosto 9, 2005

Filed under: Uncategorized — looking4good @ 9:40 pm
Começa bem a época

Não há dúvida que a época oficial ainda não começou e a problemática dos árbitros ( e a sua nomeação) já consegue ser mais quente do que o clima, já de si bem elevado. Depois de resolvida a questão do sorteio / nomeação em que esta última levou vantagem, já nos jogos particulares houve muitos motivos para falar ( e dizer mal) da arbitragem. Vejamos:

No jogo Guimarães-Benfica veja-se a “vergonhosa” arbitragem de Paulo Costa. Na primeira parte só faltou tirar olhos. Ou seja tivemos uma arbitragem mais que incompetente, com as regras do jogo mudadas pelo árbitro ao intervalo do jogo.

No jogo Sporting- Sampdoria a “rábula” dos fora-de-jogo foi mais hilariante do que os sketchs dos programas de humor da moda. Dizem que são as nossas instruções da Uefa. A verdade é que não vimos essa rábula em nenhum dos jogos internacionais (e são muitos) que já ocorreram. Digam antes que o que se passou foi incompetência.

Para o jogo particular Benfica-Juventus ou seja entre duas equipas que foram campeãs nacionais de Portugal e Itália respectivamente foi designado um árbitro desconhecido que pertence à 2ª. categoria. Demonstrou, como se escreveu aqui, que de facto era de 3ª. categoria e as coisas não deram para o torto porque a insuficiencia do Benfica (bem derrotado) não aconselhou responder à agressividade dos italianos (Beto e Simão Sabrosa que o digam…).

Agora que a época oficial começa e a primeira nomeação teve de ser feita vejam bem qual a “solução” encontrada para arbitrar a Supertaça de Portugal entre o Vitória de Setúbal- Benfica : Olegário Benquerença !!! Esse mesmo – o árbitro do Benfica-Porto do campeonato findo. O tal que não viu um “penalty” claríssimo no início da 2ª. parte e o árbitro que fez com que Vítor Baía passasse a ser um dos poucos (infelizmente não é o único) guarda-redes que defende golos. Será que todos os outros árbitros ainda estão em férias? Depois há problemas e queixam-se…

De facto, isto é como os incendios. Não os previnem …depois os danos acontecem e os bombeiros não chegam.

 

Magia no futebol do Benfica

Filed under: Uncategorized — looking4good @ 12:24 pm
Não. Não é de certeza o que estava a pensar. Não é a qualidade do futebol do Benfica que faz sonhar os adeptos. Não o Benfica que está a jogar bem ao ponto de o seu futebol parecer mágico. Pelo contrário. Há bons motivos de preocupação lá para os lados da Luz quanto à qualidade do seu futebol.

O que é magia é o modo como os reforços para o plantel encarnado aparecem num dia … e desaparecem no outro!

Saviola, Zalayeta, Kleberson, Vagner Love, etc ….foram nomes avançados ou inventados pela imprensa como jogadores que o Benfica poderia estar interessado, mas desapareceram!

É verdade nem Luís de Matos consegue fazer melhor. Depois de Tomasson (e aqui não foi só a imprensa, foram os próprios representantes do clube) sucedem-se as contratações “virtuais”.
Era Nonda porque a Roma não poderia inscrever jogadores, mas se o destino é o Benfica, logo o Tribunal dá razão ao clube italiano que passa a poder contratar jogadores e Nonda “Não deu”.

Ontem era Kalou (que grande craque até o Chelsea o quiz contratar!!) que vinha para o Benfica num acordo com um fundo de investimento (será o mesmo que ia pôr Robinho, Maxi Lopez, etc, no Benfica? ). Porém logo Kalou desaparece do rumo do Benfica quando afinal o pretenso contrato com o fundo de investimento tinha assinaturas falsas dos dirigentes do Feyenoord e até já envolve polícia. Mais uma grande Kali(ou)nada.

Dá vontade de desaparecer durante um mês….regressar então e ver se apareceu entretanto algum craque lá para os lados da Luz … ou se desapareceu mais algum (a juntar ao Miguel).
