TV Gazeta promove demissões e acaba com programas

TV Gazeta extingue programas e culpa crise econômica

TV Gazeta extingue programas e culpa crise econômica

A TV Gazeta iniciou na manhã desta segunda-feira uma série de demissões em suas produções de programas e departamentos.

Vários programas, por conta disso, vão deixar de ser exibidos pela emissora.

A informação é que essa medida poderia afetar inclusive o “Todo Seu”, de Ronnie Von, mas o apresentador conseguiu reverter sua saída.  A nota foi atualizada.

Consultada, a TV Gazeta declarou à coluna que só terá uma posição oficial sobre os títulos que deixarão a grade no final da tarde de hoje, quando soltará um comunicado.

A emissora confirma que atrações sairão do ar, e culpa a crise econômica, mas ressalta que a lista ainda não está fechada.

Profissionais relatam que “está um caos” na Gazeta, por conta do anúncio que será feito nesta tarde sobre o fim de produtos, incluindo do esporte. Todos os diretores da casa foram convocados para uma reunião.

Produtos não rentáveis e de baixa audiência são os principais alvos dessa contenção de gastos.

Isabeli Fontana mantém classe, elegância e beleza em programa de aventura

Isabeli atravessou rio sem perder a pose, a maquiagem e o brincão

 

Nas gravações do “Desafio Celebridade”, estreia de domingo, 21h30, no Discovery, Isabeli Fontana encarou de tudo um pouco.

Nadou em rio, enfrentou lamaceiro, cobras, bichos e lagartos.

Por pior que fosse a situação, ela não perdeu a classe, muito menos a elegância, com direito aos seus brinquinhos e maquiagem sempre impecável.

Tatá Werneck vai vender melão no final da novela “Haja Coração”

Personagem de Tatá Werneck já tem final resolvido no final de "Haja Coração"

Personagem de Tatá Werneck já tem final resolvido no final de “Haja Coração”

Daniel Ortiz e equipe de colaboradores em “Haja Coração” já têm traçado o final da novela das sete.

Tatá Werneck, a Fedora, por exemplo, vai acabar vendendo melão na feira, contando para isso com a assessoria direta de Tancinha, Mariana Ximenes, que se tornará também a sua mais nova amiga de infância.

Por outro lado, o pessoal de “Haja Coração” vai tentar evitar o vazamento do momento mais aguardado da história, sobre quem ficará com a personagem de Ximenes, Apolo (Malvino Salvador) ou Beto (João Baldasserini)?

Para os autores, não tem nada definido ainda, a exemplo da própria exibição do último capítulo, se será mesmo numa sexta ou numa segunda.

“The Voice Brasil” e “X Factor” expõem decadência da música brasileira

Jurados do "The Voice Brasil" e do "X Factor"

Jurados do “The Voice Brasil” e do “X Factor”

Tanto no “The Voice Brasil” quanto no “X Factor”, para ficar só nos principais, torna-se a cada programa mais perceptível a quantidade de músicas cantadas em inglês por parte dos seus participantes.

Não está na hora de começar a se investigar a razão disso?

Reflexo ou não do atual cenário, dominado por sertanejo, arroxa e sofrência, a Música Popular Brasileira de qualidade está perdendo espaço de maneira bem desproporcional e das mais perigosas. Basta recorrer a qualquer playlist para se deparar com tão triste realidade.

Quase nada de importante se tem como registro depois de Legião, Engenheiros, Capital, Marisa Monte, Tribalistas, Titãs e Charlie Brown, para ficar numa geração mais recente.

Será que ainda existe um meio de reverter tão triste estado de coisas?

Gente boa existe, mas faltas de oportunidade e reconhecimento sempre aparecem como principais complicadores.

Football Federation Australia reprimands Melbourne Victory under National Code of Conduct

Melbourne Victory.

Tuesday, 18 October 2016

Staff writer
Football Federation Australia (FFA) has today sent Melbourne Victory an official reprimand under the National Code of Conduct following the lighting of a flare at the Hyundai A-League match at Etihad Stadium on Saturday night.

After reviewing a submission from Melbourne Victory, FFA has recognised the significant shift amongst the Melbourne Victory supporters who showed their displeasure and then identified the perpetrator.

Melbourne Victory, along with all Hyundai A-League Clubs, was also supportive and vigilant in taking part in and delivering the National Flare Campaign; its message was simple “Flares are not Acceptable – don’t be disloyal!”

“FFA has received a detailed submission from Melbourne Victory and the club has been issued with an official reprimand,” said Head of Hyundai A-League Greg O’Rourke.

“In making the determination, FFA has placed considerable significance on the Melbourne Victory supporters who voiced their displeasure and then helped identify the perpetrator, who was removed from the stadium and will go through the FFA Banning Process. This behaviour is refreshing.

“We look at all incidents on a case by case basis and take into consideration the totality of the situation and behaviours and we noted some clear distinctions from the incidents last week at the Sydney Derby.

“Before the start of the Season, FFA and the clubs launched a National Flare Campaign in collaboration with police and stadiums where players and coaches asked football fans through video screen messages, Member letters and social media to help rid their clubs of disloyal fans discharging flares.

“FFA recognises that the self-policing by the Melbourne Victory fans is yet another positive step and a strong public statement that fans, clubs and the wider football family were united in saying flares are not acceptable and show disloyalty to their club.

“In issuing the reprimand FFA is warning all clubs of the need to stay vigilant. The collective focus of FFA, clubs, players and true football fans is to work together to eliminate all forms of anti-social behaviour, including flares.

“We need to be clear that a recurrence of the incident where flares are ignited in the Melbourne Victory fans area may leave FFA with no alternative other than to deduct points from the club.”

Melbourne Victory has accepted this decision and will not be appealing.

Female coach developer program launches

The participants for this year's Female Coach Developer Program.

Tuesday, 18 October 2016

Staff writer
Football Federation Australia (FFA), in collaboration with FIFA, will run a Female Coach Developer Program for six chosen applicants.

Having secured FIFA funding, the running of this Female Coach Developer Program aims to meet the dual goals of improving both the quality and quantity of FFA’s coach developer workforce, and to increase the number of female coaches working within football.

This program is in line with FFA’s Strategic Plan for 2016-19 which identifies establishing FFA as the ‘leading organisation for females in sport’ as one of the four key principles.

“FFA is committed to being a leading organisation for females in sport, supporting female coaches is a key part of this commitment.

“This program provided a fantastic opportunity for six participants to improve their coaching skills and knowledge and we expect the number of female coaches working within football will increase as a result,” said Emma Highwood, Head of Community, Football Development and Women’s Football.

The six applicants were chosen by a FFA selection panel to be involved in the Female Coach Developer Program, with the program to involve both distance learning and interpersonal components.

The six successful applicants are:

·         Ann Gourley (Perth)

·         Deb Fisher (NSW)

·         Rani Cavaretta (NSW)

·         Louise McColl (VIC)

·         Mel Lum (VIC)

·         Joey Peters (NNSW)

The program includes two four-day workshops at the Australian Institute of Sport in Canberra on October 10-13 and March 13-16, 2017.

The talented Tim Cahill’s inspirational advice

Tim Cahill acknowledges the fans following City's win in the Melbourne Derby.

Want to make it in professional football? Ask Tim Cahill – he’ll tell it straight, as http://www.a-league.com.au managing editor Aidan Ormond found out in part one of an exclusive interview with the Hyundai A-League marquee man.

First, Tim Cahill is an extraordinary Australian. I truly believe this.

I first interviewed him for a magazine cover in the post-2006 World Cup media frenzy when the Caltex Socceroos became truly household names.

Fresh faced but focussed and already planning for the challenges ahead, he struck me as more than just your average footballer.

Ten years later, nothing’s changed.

After a decade of extraordinary achievements – scoring some freakish goals at two subsequent World Cups, and aiming for a fourth World Cup in 2018, goal scorer at three Asian Cups and a winner of one, EPL, MLS, China and now as the pin-up boy at 36 of the Hyundai A-League – Cahill is still thinking ahead, still restless, still wanting more out of his body, his teammates and his nation.

And his passion to grow the game in Australia remains undimmed.

In part one today (part two tomorrow), he discusses why Caltex Socceroos coach Ange Postecoglou is like a soul mate on the journey to make football the biggest sport in Australia.

The younger boys at City, their mentality, their attitude, what do you see?

Firstly, for every young player, there’s an opportunity to play. Including youngsters.

The first thing you want from them is discipline.

Players who listen and who want to be part of the group and learn.

And we implemented that early on when we went to Townsville for a ten-day camp.

Playing them in games against Auckland City, Bruno [Fornaroli] the captain for one half, me the captain for the second, with young boys like [Daniel] Arzani, Connor Chapman and others.

And they need to know they can bounce off players like myself and be in the same mixer and be valued in the same way.

Now, the biggest thing with anything is even with the players that we have who are a little older, consistency, you need consistency in training, train well, not to miss training not to miss games and to be available and to be professional.

Because you look at our set up, it has to be one of the best in the league. I can only speak for our club, but it’s exceptional.

And it’s set up like an English football club.

 

And you have a leadership group that drives the culture and allows younger players to take their chances?

I recognise talent, I recognise when players need an arm around them. I also recognise when they need support off the park.

And that’s all part of the leadership group. Bruno being the captain, and Tommy Sorensen, Manny Muscat, Michael Jakobsen, Neil Kilkenny and myself.

There’s a real strong level of respect in the changing room which we set early on.

Being a pro footballer is not just the hours you’re at the club is it? The nutrition, recovery, looking after yourself, doing all the things when people aren’t watching you…

One hundred percent…

How much of that message is getting through?

We joked with the staff the other day, I said with Arzani and I’m all over him.

Because he played against Auckland and was exceptional. He’s a natural talent. Ripped their defence in half. Now it’s about consistency, can he play? Can he do it in front of a bigger crowd?

You look at Bruce Kamau, Connor Chapman, then there’s Josh Rose, 35-years-old one of the fittest players in the team.

I think what you do off the park is the reason I’m still in the game.

So when they see you running, pressing to win the ball back straight away it’s infectious.

Same as the Socceroos.

Once they see you do it. Once they see you not missing training. They’ve got to ask questions of themselves. Are they doing enough? And that’s the ethos I learned with Ange in a big way.

Do your job. And if there’s another one to be done, don’t ask. Just do it. Help them.

 

When a famous person is doing the hard yards, that’s a powerful statement and a powerful sign.

That’s the key.

People have the perception that when you’re 36-years-old, you can’t run 10k a game or beat Western Sydney [in the Cup] with an old hack, or score the winner coming off the bench in Abu Dhabi. You shouldn’t be scoring 48 goals …

This is what Ange [Postecoglou] is talking about. Why can’t your next tournament be the biggest tournament?

And the World Cup was…and I did it, but I couldn’t do it without him believing in me. Supporting me and giving me something to chase and chase. And then me coming home to the A-League.

Who’s taking all the pressure? I am. But I’m at peace with that. I’m loving it. I’m happy to be in the firing line.

And you could’ve gone pretty much anywhere?

I was two years signed in China. It was near enough done and dusted then I thought, ‘what’s there to lose’?

Just go. The story of my life has been battling and fighting. Not to prove people wrong but to keep playing.

If you want an education, read Ange Postecoglou’s book [‘Changing The Game’].  He’s gone about his business slowly and quietly.

And that’s pretty much a reflection of him as a coach to what I am as a player.

Describe the meeting of minds…

I met someone in Australia who loves football in Australia more than me. And that’s hard to find.

He can change the game because he loves it.

Some people in the game don’t love it. They like it but they don’t understand it.

They don’t know what comes with it. And that’s the biggest thing, there are some misconceptions about comments he may make, what he wants is people to understand because we’re Australian, we don’t have to settle. That whole, ‘we’re Aussies, that’s okay, we don’t have to win. You take the Cup, we’ll go back to Australia’.

We wouldn’t have won the Asian Cup if we had that mentality. And let’s not forget, Bresch [Mark Bresciano] and I weren’t on the park. Tomi Juric won the ball back and Jimmy Troisi scored the winner.

And that’s the mindset of using 30 players in a squad to win something. It’s not one individual.

When you look around the league, what do you see?

The funny thing is, the most successful coaches in the A-League, Popa [Tony Popovic, coach of Wanderers], Muzzy [Kevin Muscat, coach of Victory, Aloisi [John Aloisi, coach of Roar] we had to fight for everything, every single day, every single week.

We all have our own stories, our own individual upbringings.

And likewise Ange, with what he’s written in his book, I can relate to that.

We’ve created our own talents through hard work. Now we’re rewarding our talents.

Popa won the Asian Champions League in his first tilt in Asia. Brand new club. Never be done. Look, I hope it is and I hope it’s us, but it may never be done again in our lifetime.

An Australian did that. In a salary cap league. It makes me wonder, if he does that and we win an Asian Cup, what do you have to do to wake people up?

Part two tomorrow…

Young Socceroos aim for second win at AFC U-19 championships

The Young Socceroos face Uzbekistan in their second group game at the AFC U-19 Championships on Tuesday.The Young Socceroos face Uzbekistan in their second group game at the AFC U-19 Championships on Tuesday.

Tuesday, 18 October 2016

John Greco @Grecs7
The Young Socceroos face Uzbekistan in their second group game at the AFC U-19 Championships tonight (Tues) in Bahrain with a win all but securing Australia a spot in the last eight.

After both nations won their opening match in Group D on Saturday, three points at the Khalifa Sports City Stadium this evening would all but secure progression to the knockout rounds for Australia.

The Young Socceroos need to reach the semi-finals of this tournament to qualify for next year’s FIFA U-20 World Cup in South Korea.

“Winning games give us more confidence, it always helps,” Australia head coach Ufuk Talay said.

“But we take it one game at a time. These games are challenging for us and we’re looking forward to it.”

The Young Socceroos, fresh from winning the AFF U-19 Championship in Hanoi last month, carried that form into their opening 1-0 win over China on the weekend.

In an impressive display from the Aussie youngsters, midfielder Mario Shabow’s goal in the first minute of the second half was the difference in an end-to-end encounter.

Lachlan Scott and George Blackwood combined to set-up the match-winner for the Western Sydney Wanderers youngster.

A swift counter attack saw Blackwood drive into the area before squaring to Shabow who bent his shot from 12 yards into the bottom corner.

“It is always good to score but what was important was to grab three points from this game, which will give us momentum in the competition,”  Shabow told the AFC website.

“We have been working very hard in training for the competition and we are happy that we could begin with a victory.

“This will give us confidence in the next matches.”

Uzbekistan came from a goal down to beat Tajikistan 2-1 in their first group match. Australia face Tajikistan in their final group game later this week.   https://twitter.com/theafcdotcom/status/787563740669448192

Caltex Socceroo’s sparkling Sparta form in Eredivisie

Craig Goodwin at his unveiling at Sparta Rotterdam.

Craig Goodwin rated his second-half cameo for Sparta Rotterdam on Saturday as possibly his best in the Eredivisie, with the Caltex Socceroos winger notching a goal and an assist to secure a 2-2 draw.

Sparta trailed 1-0 to visiting Willem II when Goodwin came off the bench at Sparta Stadion and the hosts fell even further behind in the 65th minute when Spanish striker Fran Sol struck his second goal for the visitors.

But Goodwin wrestled the momentum back for Sparta just four minutes later, sliding in to poke Finn Stokkers’ cross into the net.

 

It was the Australian’s second league goal since joining the Dutch club for the 2016-17 campaign, and Goodwin completed an impressive display when he cut the ball back for Thomas Verhaar to equalise in the 90th minute.

Fellow Australian Kenny Dougall played 90 minutes in midfield for Sparta.

“Since I’ve come to the Netherlands I feel I’m getting better with each game I play,” Goodwin told Goal Australia following the draw.

“I feel I’ve had a good start to the season and it’s great to be able to help the team, but it certainly was a great team effort to come back from two goals down to secure a point.”

The 24-year-old added: “Obviously it’s really nice to have an impact for the team and that’s what I try to do, whether I’m in the starting XI or on the bench, I try to impact the game as much as I can for the team.”

Having joined Sparta after helping Adelaide United win the A-League double last season, Goodwin has started strongly with two goals and three assists in eight Eredivisie appearances.

That form prompted a call-up to the Caltex Socceroos for the World Cup qualifiers against Saudi Arabia and Japan this month, and although Goodwin failed to get on the pitch, he was thrilled to be back in the national set-up.

“Every time I’ve gone into the Socceroos camps I feel I’ve come away from it learning a lot from the coaching staff and the players around me, and most of all being in that environment you just want to be there for the next camp,” he said.

 

“So I’ve certainly come away with more determination to be back and to push for game time with the Socceroos.”

Goodwin has made three appearances for Australia’s senior side with the last one coming off the bench against England in May.
