Attacking Soccer at related • 1 view

Manchester United beat Wolves 3-2 Â to-night in the League Cup at Old Trafford, with debutant Bebe opening the scoring for United with a neat chip over the Wolves keeper.

Bebe looked impressive and ready to prove his worth to-night but didn't play as an out and out striker, he instead hugged the right touchline giving strike partner Macheda the central role.

Rarely does a story read better than this. As a young boy Bebe was cared for by a charity in Loures, Portugal. His parents were unable to consistently provide for him and so passed on the responsibilities to a charity that claimed to be able to do just that. Upon maturity Bebe was unemployed and living rough.

Having my Bebé

David Conn has the story of how Bebé, the hitherto unknown Vitoria Guimaeres striker, who without playing one single competitive game was sold to Man Utd for £7.4m amidst accusations of poaching by his former agent.

The short of it is that Bebé apparently dumped his former agent without a timely notice and a proper reason before making off with the new agent responsible for bringing him to United.

No surprise here folks, JM has way too much on is plate getting Los Blancos off the starting line in La Liga to worry about a Portuguese team that is a total disaster. Although I do believe that one day Jose Mourinho will take over and lead his country to World Cup glory. When will that time be?

Provided you live somewhere near the general region of Iberia, that is.

With Carlos Quieroz unemployed and off to the sandy beaches of somewhere to ponder ways to behave like a polite, courteous human being, there's a large hole atop the Portuguese national team just waiting to be filled rather snappily, too, with qualifiers commenced again shortly.

La Liga Report at related • 0 views

Cristiano Ronaldo's Portugal national team manager Carlos Quieroz has been fired by the Portugal Football Federation following his six month ban for supposedly disrupting the nation's doping agency from testing players before the World Cup. Ronaldo's league rival Argentine forward Lionel Messi's interim national team coach Sergio Batista has been briefly extended by his homeland's football federation.

The year 2010 has certainly not been a favorite of Carlos Quieroz. Even if some had higher hopes, the World Cup run was met with the expected outcome for many Spain and then done but the rest has seemingly been one mess after another.

There was the shoving match with a journalist at an airport in February, shortly followed by the major saga in which he said mean things to anti-doping officials, who are seemingly the most fragile people on earth.

Rumours are that Carlos Quieroz who surprised everyone by surviving the axe after Portugal's dismal World Cup is most likely to be fired.

He has already been banned for a month by insulting anti-doping officials and is further in hot water by alleging a conspiracy by FPF vice president Amandio de Carvalho to oust him.

This is David Villa's World Cup. Fernando Torres might have faded but Villa seems to be relishing doing double duty.

An offside maybe but given the number of really bad calls already in the World Cup, this is not so egregious. It all happens in a blink of an eye and Eduardo who had a stellar match was unable to keep the ball away from Villa a second time.

Brazil and Portugal advanced from the group of death at the expense of Ivory Coast and newcomers, North Korea. Portugal was aided by a unexpected 7-0 rout of the Chollimas and therefore built up an unassailable goal advantage. It was never likely that Ivory Coast could emulate Portugal's feat but they tried gallantly.

Finally, Carlos Quieroz is able to witness a performance that he must be extremely pleased about. This could have been a potential banana skin for the immensely talented but unpredictable Portuguese side. The last time these two sides met, Portugal won 5-3 at Goodison Park in the 1966 World Cup quarterfinal stage.

Carlos Quieroz whines about Drogba favouritism

Carlos Quieroz believes that Didier Drogba received permission to wear a protective cast because he is a superstar.

He is worried that wearing such a contraption could have proved harmful to the Portugese players, i.e., it could potentially injure them. His complaints have no grounds.

At least one would expect that this match bristling with no mean sloths when it comes to scoring goals would at the very least be anything but a goalless draw. But that is what it turned out to be. It had its moments especially in the second half but there was no one to put an exclamation mark.

Cristiano Ronaldo joined Leo Messi, Wayne Rooney, and Samuel Eto'o - all leading contenders for the Golden Boot in drawing a blank.

A Nani One Bites The Dust: Portugal's star winger ruled out of entire World Cup

By Eric Beard

Brazil must be absolutely loving the build-up to this World Cup. After all, Didier Drogba hurt his arm a few days ago and news is breaking that Portugal and Manchester United winger Nani has injured his collar bone in training while attempting an acrobatic kick and he will now be ruled out of the entire World Cup.

Cristiano Ronaldo once again did not score but not because of the lack of trying. He got a number of chances but failed to convert.

What must have heartened Carlos Quieroz was that Portugal was able to find goals from other sources including two from Raul Miereles and the final goal by Nani.

Project 2010: a postmortem

Before the 1998 World Cup, US Soccer, advised by (future National Team coach?) Carlos Quieroz, set the lofty goal of becoming a World Cup contender by 2010 a mere twelve years down the line. Now that that deadline has passed, it's time to take a look at Project 2010, to determine its success or failure.

Fantastic performance. By far Spains most complete at the World Cup so far. Portugal set out to stem Spains passing in midfield, flood the centre of the park, and break out on the counter in the sort of devastating fashion that saw them flash seven past North Korea.

Un'altra delle possibili stelle del Mondiale, l'ala del Manchester e del Portogallo, Nani, potrà assistere alla competizione sudafricana da semplice spettatore.
Il talentuoso esterno, infatti, non ha superato il test decisivo per capire se c'era possibilità di recuperare dall'infortunio alla clavicola sinistra, procuratosi in allenamento, prima di partire per il Sudafrica.
