Porto queixinhas … Novembro 23, 2005

Filed under: Uncategorized — looking4good @ 10:21 pm
O Porto fez queixa à Liga dos Clubes sobre o gesto de Nuno Gomes (simulando uma injecção no braço) na parte final do jogo de Braga e em comunicado “ataca” ainda o Sp. Braga. Leia-se:
“O que acaba por ser surpreendente é o papel passivo e submisso do Sp. Braga e da sua direcção, que deixam passar incólume uma grave insinuação atentatória da dignidade da sua equipa de futebol. Aparentemente, a determinação tão propalada pelos seus atletas nos dias que seguiram ao jogo não tem o mesmo correspondente nos mais altos responsáveis do clube»
O que querem com isto? Dizer que o Braga está feito com o Benfica? De facto esta história e este papel do Porto queixinhas … faz-me lembrar uma anedota .
Se o gesto de Nuno Gomes é éticamente reprovável não vejo como o mesmo o possa ser disciplinarmente punido! Mas o Porto ataca para todos os lados… não só quer que Nuno Gomes seja castigado, como agora atira-se ao Braga … por não falar muito (mais do que eles estou a ver…) no assunto! É esta a maneira de estar no desporto do … Porto.

Porto 1 – 1 Rangers

Porto domina mas cede empate quase no fim…

Admirámo-nos pelo escalonamento da equipa de Co Adriaanse que no início do jogo apresentou apenas Lisandro Lopez na frente de ataque. Começou bem o Porto a chegar à baliza dos escoceses com relativa facilidade principalmente em jogadas pela direita e disfrutou de uma grande oportunidade aos 7′ : cruzamento de Bosingwa e Lisandro Lopez de cabeça de baixo para cima com a bola a sair por cima da barra. Com o decurso do tempo o Porto continuava a dominar mas as situações de perigo escasseavam. Em contrapartida os escoceses nem chegam perto da baliza do Porto.

Na 2ª. parte o treinador holandês do Porto arrisca, tira Pedro Emanuel (um dos defesas centrais) e faz entrar Hugo Almeida (avançado centro). O Porto continua a dominar e ao expirar o 1º. quarto de hora, um cruzamento longo de Bosingwa é finalizado por uma cabeçada de Lisandro Lopez para o fundo da baliza. Fazia-se justiça no marcador. Este golo faz com que ambos os treinadores alterem as suas formações. Co Adriaanse repõe o segundo central entrando Bruno Alves e saindo Diego (63′) , enquanto o treinador do Rangers mete unidades ofensivas (Thomas 62′, McCormack 75′ e Burke aos 78′). Finalmente vê-se os escoceses a querer atacar, com o Porto a não saber aproveitar devidamente (por Jorginho) algumas jogadas de contra-ataque e quem diria aos 83′ um cruzamento longo da direita para o 2º. poste, uma cabeçada coloca a bola na área nevrálgica para McCormack igualar no único remate à baliza do Porto em todo o jogo!

O Porto disfrutou ainda aos 88′ de uma grande, diria grandíssima (porque foram duas vezes no mesmo lance), oportunidade de golo. O guarda redes defende a primeira a bola sobra para Paulo Assunção a um metro da baliza aberta remata e …o mesmo guarda redes recupera e faz uma defesa extraordinária evitando o 2-1 e quase colocando o Rangers nos oitavos de final da Taça Uefa.

O Porto agora tem de ganhar fora ao Artmedia (o que está longe de ser impossível), mas precisa que o Rangers perca em casa com o Inter. Ora com o Inter já qualificado e um empate a servir ao Rangers, parece-me um cenário muito complicado. Isto é uma vitória pode não chegar para se qualificar. Um empate basta para prosseguir pela Taça Uefa. Muita gente vai rezar a Nª. Srª. de Fátima!
