William Bonner perdeu o bonde da história

 

William Bonner, no “Jornal Nacional” da segunda-feira, por mais que tentasse demonstrar o contrário, se mostrou visivelmente incomodado com a sua situação.

Parado, diante de um estádio de futebol e completamente fora do epicentro dos acontecimentos. Foi difícil.

Flávio Ricco comenta a postura da Band e da Record na cobertura das manifestações

 

Na cobertura das manifestações, segunda-feira, a direção da Bandeirantes não teve dúvidas em interromper a igreja e voltar com o Datena. Saiu do traço para brigar pelo segundo lugar.

Na Record, sem o CSI, Adriana Araújo e Celso Freitas o tempo todo no ar. Precisos.

As cobranças mudaram com o tempo na TV

Rivelino participa do oitavo episódio do programa "Menino de Ouro"

Rivelino participa do oitavo episódio do programa “Menino de Ouro”

Muita coisa mudou na televisão nos últimos tempos. Bem no começo da década passada, como uma ordem, era proibido dar menos de 10 pontos no SBT. Senti na pele. Todo e qualquer programa que não chegasse aos “dois dígitos” de média, corria o risco de execução – ser tirado do ar.

O ambulatório da Anhanguera vivia superlotado. Mas, felizmente, nada além de um probleminha de pressão ou simples dor de barriga.

Passado este tempo, 11 ou 12 anos depois, o panorama é bem diferente. As exigências são completamente outras ou simplesmente não existem mais.

Hoje, no mesmo SBT é possível verificar o esforço da sua atual direção em assegurar a segunda temporada de um reality de futebol, “O Menino de Ouro”, que no final da primeira edição beirou a casa de gloriosos 4 pontos.

A cobrança do passado, como se vê, se perdeu no tempo. Para o bem ou para o mal. O ambulatório, pelo menos e pelo que se tem notícia, nunca mais foi tão frequentado como naqueles dias.

Silvio Santos e Geraldo Luis conversaram na manhã de domingo

Geraldo Luis, apresentador da Record

Silvio Santos e Geraldo Luis, numa manhã de domingo – por acaso o último, saindo do salão do Jassa, na rua Henrique Martins, bem pertinho da Igreja São Gabriel. Alguns dos que foram à missa viram.

O apresentador da Record já tinha passado por ali no sábado, mas como não era o dia, voltou na manhã seguinte. Assim, meio que por acaso.

Gugu, de novo em São Paulo, vira sombra no SBT

 

Gugu Liberato, logo depois da rescisão com a Record, viajou para a sua casa em Angra dos Reis. Foi acompanhado da família e não falou com mais ninguém.
Só voltou a São Paulo neste começo de semana. Mas ainda no mais absoluto silêncio.

Ainda assim…

Mesmo quieto no seu canto, Gugu nunca esteve tão presente na vida de determinadas pessoas no SBT, como nesses últimos dias.
Foi transformado, no cotidiano de dois ou três programas, numa verdadeira sombra.

The bravest substitution: taking off Cahill proves a masterstroke for Osieck

Holger Osieck risked being the Socceroos coach who shot Bambi.

I know what I’m doing. I’m close to the players and I’m close to the situation.”

Instead, he can reflect with pride after his brave substitution of national hero Tim Cahill with the game in the balance swung it – and World Cup qualification – for the Socceroos.

Not happy: Tim Cahill reacts after being substituted.

Cahill’s replacement Josh Kennedy netted the 83rd minute winner at ANZ Stadium on Tuesday night which saw off plucky Iraq to book Australia a place at a third successive World Cup finals.

Cahill was clearly unhappy at the substitution, exchanging words with Osieck on the sideline as he walked off and slapping the air as he approached the bench.

 

And Australia held its breath as a man whose vital goals usually save the Socceroos took a seat as a night which promised so much was threatening to deliver so little.

But in victory as he was on the sideline, Osieck was unfazed by whether he’d turned the game with his brave move.

 

“You have to understand that no player ever wants to be taken off but it’s my discretion as a coach to make substitutions,” he said.

 

“You could see that after the game (Cahill) was one of the happiest people, climbing on my shoulders.

“When you have 10 people you have 10 different opinions. When you have 100 people you have 100 opinions. So why should I care?

 

“I know what I’m doing. I’m close to the players and I’m close to the situation.”

 

Despite showing his frustration when he was replaced, Cahill praised Osieck after the match.

‘‘All lot credit to the boss [Osieck] you know to do what he’s done, he’s taken a lot of criticism and at the same time Japan, Jordan and now today to execute the way he’s done ends up being genius,’’ Cahill said on Back Page Live.

 

‘‘If it was [former Socceroo coach] Guus Hiddink you’ve have given him credit so I’d love to see [Osieck] get the credit now.

 

‘‘I was the first one to jump on [Holger when Kennedy scored]. It is the best feeling in the world when your teammate scores and you’re going to the World Cup … we’re about a team, about a unit.’’

 

The Socceroos celebrate after defeating Iraq at the Olympic Stadium in Sydney.

Kennedy, in his first Socceroos appearance for 19 months after recovering from a serious back problem, rated the strike the most important of his career.

“I really don’t know what to say – it’s amazing,” Kennedy said.

“It’s been a long road to get back where I am now and this is the icing on the cake.”

Captain Lucas Neill admitted the performance wasn’t great, but it was a case of mission accomplished.

“I’m proud of everybody. It’s been a really tough campaign. We’ve stuck at it, showed mental strength,” Neill said.

“Sorry, it wasn’t pretty. But we’ve beaten what was in front of us and pushed ourselves on to a very exciting tournament.”

The result secured Australia second place in Asia’s Group B behind winners Japan, with the top two teams qualifying for Brazil.

Jordan beat Oman 1-0 in Amman on Wednesday morning to secure third place in the group, and a playoff against Uzbekistan – third in Group A – in a second-chance attempt to grab a World Cup place.

Uzbekistan’s 5-1 win over Qatar was not enough to secure automatic qualification in that group, forcing them to a playoff in which the winners take on South America’s fifth-placed side.

Instead Iran and South Korea progressed to Brazil as the top two teams from Group A.

Iran claimed top spot by beating the Koreans 1-0 in Ulsan.

Report card for the Socceroos

Player ratings in Tuesday’s World Cup qualifier against Iraq.

Flying: Joshua Kennedy celebrates after heading in the winning goal for the Socceroos.

MARK SCHWARZER: Wasn’t the busiest man on the pitch. Teen striker Saif Salman forced a save from the veteran gloveman in each half. Apart from two other saves, was barely troubled. Rating 6

LUCAS NEILL: Solid in defence without being flashy. His leadership and vocal presence is always key. Rating 6.

TIM CAHILL: Put Iraq under pressure almost immediately forcing a great save with a powerful left-foot drive after just two minutes and was always dangerous. Was very tightly marked and fouled often. Had a few opportunities go begging but was always dangerous. Rating 7.

The Socceroos celebrate after defeating Iraq at the Olympic Stadium in Sydney.
MARK MILLIGAN: Defensive work was outstanding, won the ball at key moments and had several strong tackles. Displayed a higher work rate than midfield partner Bresciano and got forward when needed. Rating 7.

SASA OGNENOVSKI: Solid in defence and had a rare shot on goal in the first half. Again, partnered up well with Neill. Rating 6.

LUKE WILKSHIRE: Defensively strong. Made several runs forward and combined well with Kruse. Rating 7.

ROBBIE KRUSE: Supplied a constant flow of balls forward and had several dangerous runs. Sent the 80,000-crowd into raptures when seemingly breaking the deadlock with a long-range screamer in the 65th minute, only to have it disallowed. Rating 8.

TOM OAR: Had an outstanding game. Was a constant thorn in Iraq’s side with superb attacking play down the left. Played a beautiful ball forward to Cahill to set him up perfectly for an early attempt at goal. Was a real workhorse this game. Rating 9.

BRETT HOLMAN: Looked flat and sluggish and didn’t give the side that crucial spark in the front third he usually does. Was set up by Kruse to break the deadlock in the second half but didn’t do much with it. Rating 4.

MATT MCKAY: caught out of position a few times in the left-back spot, giving the Iraqis an area to exploit early on. Improved in the second stanza and showed some great build-up work. Rating 7.

MARK BRESCIANO: Was heavily marked and rarely found himself in space. Found a way to lose his markers twice in the second half and had a crack at goal both times. Provided a perfectly placed ball into the box resulting in Kennedy’s ensuing goal. Rating 8.

Substitutes:

TOM ROGIC: Came on for a lacklustre Holman in the 61st minute. Looked dynamic from his first touch and had an instant impact providing a much-needed spark up front. Rating 7.

JOSH KENNEDY: Came on for Tim Cahill in the 78th minute. The move proved a master-stroke by Osier with the lanky striker climbing high to finally break the deadlock with a superb header in the 83rd minute to ensure the 1-0 win and send the Socceroos to Brazil. Rating 9.

ARCHIE THOMPSON: Came on for Kruse in the 79th minute. Added much-needed fire power up front. Rating 6.
