O rolo compressor*

Foi uma taça fácil de vencer. Quem pensava que iria ver uma final muito disputada enganou-se redondamente, muito por culpa da qualidade do BENFICA e da autêntica falta de vontade dos adversários em jogarem à bola.
Tal como já tinha acontecido no jogo do campeonato, Jesus voltou a usar jogadores menos utilizados. Na altura jogaram Urreta e Luis Filipe, ontem jogaram Airton, Kardec, Rúben Amorim, Aimar e Carlos Martins (estes 2 acho que nunca tinham estado tanto tempo em campo ao mesmo tempo). Mesmo com estas mudanças os encarnados foram a única equipa a mostrar futebol e cedo resolveram a final.
Patéticos. Acho que é a palavra correcta para os jogadores do Porto. Cedo de percebeu que a única intenção era de provocar os jogadores do BENFICA, logo na 1ª falta do jogo (para aí aos 10 segundos) Rúben Micael parecia um cão raivoso. Durante os 90 minutos nada mudou, Raúl Meireles e principalmente Bruno Alves deveriam ter visto o cartão vermelho umas 2/3 vezes. Apesar disto os jogadores encarnados nunca cederam às provocações e até nisto venceram com facilidade. Pena que o árbitro (ele próprio um ex super dragão!) tenha deixado que o capitão do Porto pudesse distribuir porrada a torto e a direito!


POSITIVO
Destaques. Luisão (mas que grande jogo), David Luiz (se aquele golo tinha entrado), Rúben Amorim (merecia ter marcado o 3º golo), Carlos Martins (outra grande exibição). Mas quem eu quero mesmo destacar é o Airton, joga muito pouco e foi lançado a titular numa final e esteve simplesmente impecável.

 

NEGATIVO
Arruaceiros. Começaram nas áreas de serviço na auto estrada, continuaram à chegada a Faro e finalizaram mesmo dentro de campo. Será que é este Porto que os adeptos querem apoiar?
Jesualdo. Dizer que o jogo foi equilibrado é querer brincar com toda a gente que viu o jogo e principalmente com os adeptos do Porto. Ficava-lhe muito melhor admitir o que toda a gente viu. Talvez tenha optado por essa desculpa, pois desta vez não tinha a do túnel para utilizar!

Lindo... a imagem do Porto lá fora

 http://bleacherreport.com/articles/330214-fc-porto-leaked-phone-taps-proof-major-corruption-scandal#

 

For most Portuguese football fans, the brand "FC Porto" is a synonym of corruption. The leader of the club for over 25 years, Mr. Pinto da Costa, is well known not only for being the most successful executive in the football world, but also for the corruption scandals, which seem to be constantly associated with him.

Not long ago, Platini threatened to ban FC Porto from the Champions League because of the same scandal, which brought many referees and executives to the court. Nonetheless, FCP did not get the ban and Platini became a laughing stock in Portugal.

Not even the Portuguese courts were able to punish FC Porto's chairman, since the phone records that proved his involvement in the major corruptions scandal were not accepted as proof by the court.

Today the same phone taps, which were overruled by the courthouse, were posted on YouTube. The content is just a confirmation of what was already known by the general public.

The tapes include mostly talks between the Portuguese executive and major characters of the Portuguese refereeing scene. According to the conversations Pinto da Costa literally handpicked the officials responsible for FC Porto's fixtures. 

Bribes are also a topic. Money is not specifically mentioned, but nonetheless prostitution is broadly discussed under the term "fruit" (prostitutes) and the term "milk and coffee" (which refers to Latin-Brazilian prostitutes) which were offered to referees.

There is also another tape in which the Portuguese executive talks to the then-President of the Portuguese League, in order to ask him for a favor in a disciplinary case against Liedson for elbowing a FC Porto player.

One of the most scandalous tapes for international fans is the one which involves Deco, the famous midfield ace.

The Portuguese midfielder had thrown his boot at a referee after being sent off. Angry about this decision, Pinto da Costa asked a famous journal editor to publish an interview with Deco, in which the player would state that he would reconsider his place in the national team if he were to be punished for his actions against the referee.

The forged interview was carefully prepared, as was the hearing at the League's Disciplinary Committee. Deco carefully followed the instructions of FC Porto's chairman and was not punished by the league—a true scandal.

Now, Portugal eagerly awaits the outcome of this situation. Pinto da Costa has already filed a law suit concerning the leaked tapes. The Portuguese General Attorney is following the situation closely, trying to find those responsible for the publishing of those tapes, since they were held under a confidential status.

However, the question remains: How could Pinto da Costa not have been punished by the legal authorities?

Many suspect that Pinto da Costa also has some influence within the justice system, which is not too far-fetched. He has enjoyed some very intimate relationships with many famous politicians who still have a large influence in the legal system.

Godfather plot in Portuguese.
