Who has everything, always has everything ::

18-0, 20-0, 34-0🇧🇷 No, dear reader, the report is not about the handball team… It is about the results of the training layers AC Gervidfootball club from Oliveira do Douro.

while under 19 go with 54 goals conceded after four matches, under 17 years old go with 67 missed (!), just three games. Finally the command up to 15 years follows the same trend, but with more “pleasant” numbers: 41 goals conceded in four games played. Total 162 goals concededonly one goal scored and nine defeats.

The Guyense emblem, founded in 1938, has never witnessed a disaster of this magnitude in a youth team. In the end what happened? Why is AC Gervide having such terrible results?

O zero zero was with President AC Gervide – Joel Marquez – looking for answers, and the conversation flowed without filters. From neighbor greed to disdain for those who “always give back the same,” the 48-year-old leader opened the book to what he considers “the worst performance in history in terms of preparation.” “.

“We can’t be the party bomb”

I’ll start with the obvious: How did Gervide become the worst club – in terms of training – in the Porto area?

�AC Gervid

“We cannot support a team that makes a decent championship with 23/24 athletes. Last year we enrolled 190 athletes. This year we have to go to 130, we have lost a lot of people. Another very serious aspect: the city council allowed us to enter the only place where we should train only on August 29, that is, all other clubs have already passed at least a month of training and funding, ”he began with what he remembered. .

As for the squads for this season, the president said the biggest challenges are with the under-19s, as they are forced to play with several younger players and with no “progress” on demand.

“For juniors, we have a large squad, but for juniors we have 16 athletes, and for juniors only 10. In addition, most of the juniors are freshmen. [no escalão]that is, they are descended from initiates,” he continued.

“We, since we had only 10 juniors, had to take four or five juniors as juniors. And if they are already weak in the first class of juniors … when they catch sophomores, the difference is enormous, and they can not stand it, ”he emphasized.

Worst results in each category:

How do kids and coaches deal with bad results? Joel claims that there is demotivation, but not a single child gave up at the beginning of the season.

We can’t be drummers at a party because it’s embarrassing and embarrassing for all the kids. Then, of course, it demotivates coaches, parents and me. I see them taking 30… and it’s not easy, but one thing is for sure: everyone comes to train,” he said.

“We have processes for many clubs”

Item 2 – Competition🇧🇷 In Vila Nova de Gaia, the demand for athletes is huge, and there are many “neighbors”: Vila FC, Panther Force, Douro olive tree, CD Candle, Achievements it’s in the list goes on

At the same time, Joel admits that he cannot keep the athletes in the club for a long time, but he does not hide his disappointment: “They don’t respect anyone”.

“Because there is so much choice in this region, kids go to, for example, Avintes or Oliveira do Douro… But these clubs don’t care if they know how to move forward or backward. They want to make two or three teams with children, collect tuition fees and that’s it. We even say jokingly: “These clubs have a team to compete and another to Coca Cola, that is, just for numbers, ”he explained.

“We have clubs that have come for us with four or five players. The law says that we can demand money from the fourth player for the transfer. We have processes to supply many clubs🇧🇷 We even have meetings with the presidents of all clubs, and we agreed: if we like an athlete from another club, we talk with the corresponding club, but no one does this, ”he clarified.

It should be noted that the law referenced by President AC Gervide refers to Section 37 of the Law on Regulations on the Statute, Category, Registration and Transfer of Players (FPF).

“Started storing leftovers”

Point 3 – Greed, financial inability and contempt: “He who has everything, he will always have everything …”

“What often happens: children leave for a year or two and return because they go to clubs, where, after all, there is no training. We started storing leftovers that no one needs. This is greed. They only want a certain number of athletes for a monthly fee,” he lamented, worrying about the reality of neighboring clubs.

“If we have a child here who stands out, they jump on the field and go to the athlete. There are clubs that don’t respect anyone, and that’s in plain sight,” President AC Gervide patented, pointing to the lack of transparency between institutions.

In addition to “unfair competition”, Joel highlights another major problem: financial (in)ability.

“We are the only ones who practice the lowest subscription fee. I can guarantee you that 60% of children do not pay anything, either because they have divorced parents, or because they have no conditions, ”he stressed.

A club from Guy even tried to attract athletes by offering free registration, but the parish council did not help as expected.

“The parish council, for example, gives eight thousand euros to Coimbroins, six thousand euros to Kandal, two thousand euros to Torrao and gives 1000 euros to AC Gervide! And we still haven’t received the money. Whoever has everything, he will always have everything … “

“If I leave… the club will close”

dot, paragraph🇧🇷 I mean, more or less. Before the start of the season, the president, who had been with the club for 11 years, announced that he was going to step down as president, however no one showed up to accept the badge based in Oliveira do Douro.

“This year I made the decision to leave. There were three builds, a lot of uncertainties and of course that also helped build the worst performance in history in terms of training. But no one showed up to take over the running of the club. If I leave… the club will close“, reported.

Finally, the president announced that the club was not going to die: “In March 2023, we will start trying to fix babies and sign documents,” showing mixed feelings about the hurricane of emotions that has been going through the last months.

“I’m happy that I didn’t let the club die, but I also feel exhausted. It’s not easy to walk with a house on your back and it’s hard for me when it falls apart like this … “– he finished, recalling the catastrophic results in the layers of the reservoir.

BALL – Enzo, Scaloni’s “pillar”, waiting for Di Maria (Argentina)



BALL - Enzo, Scaloni's "pillar", waiting for Di Maria (Argentina)

Argentina coach Lionel Scaloni told a press conference this Friday ahead of the World Cup round of 16 match in Qatar – Saturday against Australia (15 hours from mainland Portugal), in Al Rayyan – that he still believes the former player Benfica Di Maria (now at Juventus) has recovered from his injury and is ready to play.

“Di Maria still feels some discomfort, but he has no contractures. Wait for game time. It may seem absurd, but we played later, even after winning the group, and rested less than Australia had since the last game. Look, I also have doubts about whether I will have Tagliafico at the game. i hope angel [Di María] be available for the game,” Scaloni wished reporters this Friday in the capital of Qatar.

According to the Argentine press (Olé newspaper), Scaloni’s midfielder Enzo Fernandez of Benfica is one of the pillars of the formation in a strategy dubbed “Scaloneta”: the Benfica player is already in the starting line-up against Poland (assist) after coming on as a substitute in two previous games (and a beautiful goal scored against the Mexicans) is one of the three pillars of the pampas for the coach, along with Alexis Mac Allister (Brighton) and Julian Alvarez (Manchester City).

What Scaloni doesn’t want is unbridled euphoria. “The opponent is losing? I disagree. Absolutely. This is football, 11 against 11, you have to drop favoritism and play the match. As for tactics, it will be similar, perhaps with some changes. There are good players in Australia, but we will try to show our best game, control the game for most of the minutes, our idea is to try to win,” said Scaloni.

What he expected from the Oceania team, but which qualified and is playing in the Asian zone, was clear. “They have good players on the right flank, forwards and experienced midfielders playing in competitive leagues. And, in particular, they are a team. And when you face the team, it’s always hard. It’s a choice with players who know what they want,” Scaloni said.

After the controversy over the VAR confirmation of Japan’s 2-1 move against Spain – there was a feeling that the ball had completely crossed the bottom line earlier, but the goal was confirmed – also Scaloni, without stopping to do so, he left, as did his counterpart in Spain Luis Enrique, many doubts.

“I think the way Luis Enrique thinks: the first images are clear. [bola terá passado o risco na totalidade]🇧🇷 But if you analyze it in detail, you will see what happened. There is nothing else to do. We face the situation, we live with it. It’s hard to digest, especially since it’s implemented at the World Cup. If we had time to adapt earlier, but it was very sudden. We had a month of tests before the games. Anyway, this is for everyone, this is what we have. But to be… it’s almost a millimeter,” said the Pampas breeder.

As for the football that will be featured and what Australia expects, there is no doubt. “They have a clear system in attack and I don’t think they are going to change. My message to the fans as always: let’s break our backs on the field! We came to compete, but at the end of the day it’s just football, one game, we saw it in the Group E games on Thursday. Almost all the teams deserved to get into the next stage, but at some point the games turned upside down, that’s what happened, ”Scaloni gave the example, not surprised that Australia beat Denmark.

“I was not surprised: they are a good team, they had a good qualifying campaign. They were the fourth team to qualify for Qatar! They have a World Cup tradition and that makes them a strong contender. We are not going to be too confident, but we will play our best football, game after game, and see what happens, ”concluded the Argentina coach.

“Bernardo changed my idea of ​​football, his brain went crazy”



"Bernardo changed my idea of ​​football, his brain went crazy"

Jack Grealish praised Bernardo Silva, the Portuguese midfielder with whom he shares the Manchester City dressing room.

In an interview with The Mirror newspaper, the Englishman even says that Bernardo has changed his attitude to football and considers him the best he has ever played with.

“Bernardo has changed my idea of ​​football. Of all the players I’ve played with, he’s probably the best. The way his brain works is crazy,” he defends.

Grealish later recounted the game, marked by a request from Guardiola to Bernardo that blew him away.

“I remember last year’s game when Pep sent him to pick up the ball from Ederson. He passed to him and Bernardo dribbled. And I thought, “What the hell is this? This guy thinks he’s playing football on the school playground? It was amazing. He’s incredible,” he added.

The Englishman, who competes at the World Championships with the “Três Leões” selection, also highlights the courage of Bernardo Silva.

“Pep says he wants us to show ‘tomatoes’. We have to want the ball, even under pressure when the opposition supporters hover over us and whistle. And he tells us to give him the ball. In short, this is Bernardo,” he sums up.
