Cannibal Beheading – Gol

first_imgEvery big club goes through a “transit” period in which things don’t work out and the bottom turns out to be deeper than expected. The defeats are usually at every level – managerial, sports-technical, purely emotional.However, when we add to the failure of the team and the helplessness of the bosses an unprecedented shame, which left forever a shameful stain deeply embedded in the emblem, then we can safely talk about ruin. And in the devastation with the dry forests and the wet. As it happened in Barcelona. At the beginning of the century, the Catalans went through a 4-year “dark era”, but then it could at least be justified by a multi-layered incompetence and the lack of a megastar (in the 2001/02 season, leader Rivaldo had already lowered the level due to injuries). And the club was not at all the machine for millions it has become today. That is why even today the pain of each “tower” is much greater. The biggest. And it does not subside.The news of the desire of the new coach Ronald Koeman to kick the goal scorer №3 in the club’s history Luis Suarez caught me during the holidays and honestly did not seem credible to me. As every summer before the start of the season, transfer speculation has a refreshing effect on news-hungry fans, the players themselves (raising their price and providing them with better contracts) and the media. That’s why it seemed too much for the unproven coach Kuman to show such unwarranted audacity. Suarez, the proven sniper, the family friend of the strongest figure in the club Messi … Arriving at the “Nou Camp” to clean up the ruins and build a whole new team, certainly can not start with the removal of the Uruguayan. Because rotten apples are different.Statistically, Suarez played his weakest season at Barça, but we must not forget the serious injury he suffered in the winter and because of which he missed important matches. He is a football player of the “rabid tireless dog” type and his sporting zeal should remind Kuman of his former teammate Hristo Stoichkov. Like Kamata, Luis often needs a “half” position to score. Classy and inspired. Great versus big.Due to his status at the club and his friendship with Messi, Suarez has long won his place in the starting lineup and for some reason unknown to us, this obviously embarrasses the new coach, who is still far from his most successful colleagues as the final result. It is even more embarrassing why Kuman did not start the purge with other Tartars, who have already finished football at the highest level – captains Sergio Busquets and Gerard Pique, for example. We saw their helplessness against Bayern when the Bavarians branded the 120-year-old Barcelona with a devastating 8: 2, which will be discussed in 120 years.The reasons for Kuman’s passivity towards the two Spaniards have to be looked for far below the surface, which speaks of the use of a double standard and in fact the lack of such a “firm hand” with which the Dutchman allegedly began his rule. Busquets and Pique stopped pulling the strings on the field, but they certainly did it behind the scenes. You remember who provided the club with the multimillion-dollar contract with the Japanese company Rakuten? .. The husband of the singer Shakira undoubtedly has a business acumen, but in recent years his focus has almost completely shifted outside the stadium. He would be much more useful to Barça as president or sports director. Bussy will probably be more useful as a coach of one of the children’s teams, where he will inspire young talents with sweet memories of the golden years of “tiki-taka”.In official matches, Sergio and Gerard are increasingly ridiculed, unless they play for the championship against Eibar, Leganes, Alaves, Valladolid, Mallorca, Celta. But at the Nou Camp, because outside of it (5 losses and 5 draws in 19 championship away games) it is already difficult for them. And in the big matches of the Champions League they can no longer keep up with the pace and look like students who receive a lesson from a gang of Batkovs. Ask Roma and Liverpool. There is no sense in commenting on the Munich Express. After him, only bloody traces remain on the rails and the evaporated hope of those who dared to stop him.A distinctive feature of most legends is that they are great not only in their profession, but also as people. The result is a mutual pull-up – you have to be above things as a person and empathy must prevail over egocentrism (not to be confused with sportsmanship) to succeed with ease. At the same time, professional success is a great incentive to work on yourself and become an even better person, because you become an example for thousands of children.Ronald Koeman is undoubtedly one of the greatest legends of Barcelona. A stable defender with an affinity for scoring goals, his performance and trophies won on the field are phenomenal. As a coach, however, he remains a controversial figure.The 57-year-old has worked with strikers such as Romelu Lukaku, Aruna Cone, Ener Valencia, Dominic Culver-Levin, Jay Rodriguez, Shane Long, Graziano Pele, Juanmi, Charlie Austin, Sam Gallagher, Samuel Armenteros, Ruben Shaken and Elvis Manu from voluntarily renounces the services of a proven contractor of the highest category. It would not be an exaggeration to say that Kuman has never had such a central striker as Suarez and his decision to kick him out of Barcelona through the back entrance leads to a rain of questions.This type of solution has two possible effects – the catapult or the guillotine. Separation from a torturer can mentally release his colleagues in his area and lead to an increase in their level and results. Sometimes, however, the gap left can not be filled, and the eventual failure of the team automatically directs to the log the main culprit – the coach. Pep Guardiola succeeded with perhaps the boldest move in the recent history of Barca, parting ways with Ronaldinho in 2008. Back then, however, the Nou Camp was like a pool of talent, and the team looked like a purebred stallion in need of the right jockey to raise and guide it properly.Things worked out with Guardiola, but my personal opinion is that the timing with the release of Suarez is not right and Kuman is about to score such a spectacular own goal, which he did not attend in his biggest nightmares as an active footballer. The salvation for him can be called Ansu Fati, but the proper operation of the machine is still almost entirely dependent on the Argentine “motor” Messi. And Leo is certainly not happy with the way his close friend has been pushed off the stage, while it is still swirling with actors who have long been below the level of backups.

Utah basketball: Offensive rebounding, two droughts were key in Utes’ loss to No. 1 Arizona

first_imgNobody’s interested in the sob stories about losing close games and being fragile and ‘coulda, shoulda, woulda.’ All that fragile stuff is out the window. – Utah coach Larry KrystokowiakSALT LAKE CITY — Larry Krystkowiak’s postgame comments after Utah’s 65-56 loss to No. 1 Arizona on Sunday night started off in a whisper and eventually progressed to a gravelly rasp.The third-year Ute coach had been battling a cold for a few days, and he wasn’t feeling any better after his team lost yet another road game — its sixth in six tries this year — although at least this one came against the No. 1 team in the country.Krystkowiak wasn’t distraught by the loss and said there were “a lot of positive signs” in the nine-point defeat on the road. The Utes weren’t intimidated by the sellout crowd of 14,545, as they jumped out to a 12-2 lead and led as late as the 11-minute mark of the second half.However, two things that disappointed Krystkowiak were the offensive rebounding edge the Wildcats enjoyed (20-9) and two five-minute droughts the Utes had, one in each half where they were outscored by a 24-0 total. One happened from the 12:55 mark to the 7:39 mark of the first half, and the other came between the 11:04 mark and the 6:50 mark of the second half. In each case, Arizona outscored Utah 12-0.“We had a five-minute period (in the second half) when the game was close and we forced shots that weren’t really our kind of shots,’’ said Krystkowiak. “A couple of turnovers, ill-advised shots, self-inflicted a little bit down the stretch when we got away from what put us in that position. All of a sudden we’re going to try to go on our own and be the star of the game and it backfired.’’Delon Wright was the Utes’ most solid player Sunday, scoring a game-high 19 points and adding six rebounds, four assists, three steals and a blocked shot. Jordan Loveridge scored 13 points, but only managed 1-for-7 shooting in the second half.While Krystkowiak called the loss “disheartening,’’ he also said his players aren’t getting down on themselves as they reach the halfway point of the Pac-12 season this week.“Nobody’s interested in the sob stories about losing close games and being fragile and ‘coulda, shoulda, woulda,'” he said. “All that fragile stuff is out the window. We’ve got a group of kids that’s turning into men and hopefully we’ll learn from what we’ve gone through up to this point.’’Utah now turns its attention to a game against Colorado, which has lost four of its last five games, all by double digits.“It won’t be tough to get in the mindset for our upcoming game against (Colorado),’’ Wright said. “They’re down right now and that’s a great opportunity for us to steal a win. We’ll be good mentally. After a week of practice we’ll be great.“We have to get ready for Colorado,’’ said Dakarai Tucker, who scored 10 points Sunday. “This game is over and we’re going to start out new.”UTE NOTES: Dallin Bachynski got his second start of the season and pulled down a team-high 10 rebounds and had three blocked shots. He scored four points on 2-of-5 shooting from the field. … Because of Arizona’s overall length, 5-foot-10 sophomore guard Brandon Taylor didn’t play much Sunday night, registering a season-low 14 minutes and going scoreless for the first time all season. He also had two assists and a team-high three turnovers. … In Taylor’s place the Utes went with 6-6 freshman Kenneth Ogbe, who scored six points on 2-of-3 shooting from 3-point range in 23 minutes. … Also seeing action at the off-guard spot for six minutes was freshman Parker Van Dyke, who didn’t play Thursday at Arizona State. … Senior forward Renan Lenz, who suffered a badly sprained ankle at Washington State, saw his first action in two weeks. He only played two minutes and had all zeros on his stat line. … After Saturday’s game in Colorado, which starts at noon, the Utes return home to play Washington and Washington State the following week.last_img read more
