O Chalo está de brincadeira comigo, não há outra explicação – dizia, a mim mesmo, enquanto chamava o garçom do bar para pedir a conta. Contudo, sua insistência com o tema me preocupava. Já o tinha visto antes obcecado com o futebol ou com um par de saias, mas agora era diferente. Havia uma convicção em suas palavras que deixava qualquer um estupefato. Ao ver esses olhos de animal teimoso, juro que me deu um pouco de curiosidade. E se fosse possível? A própria ideia era tão louca, tão descabida, que dava medo sequer considerá-la.

O grito sai da boca espumosa de José Pedro, subindo antes pela garganta oscilante que cuspe maravilhada o brado que se libera extasiado, abandona-se a uma luz cintilante, expande-se, salta aos retorcidos lábios de Ângelo reverberando num grido di gioia que se excede, peregrina entre dimensões e chega até o rosto corado de Alcides.

Este tipo de jogo tem uma particularidade oculta: pode converter-se numa imensa necessidade, quase ao ponto de entregarem suas próprias vidas por ele, fazendo com que uma obscura e densa nuvem pouse sobre suas recordações e corações, nesse momento tudo terá a aparência de ter sido sempre assim. Se, por alguma razão, chegarem a encontrar-se nessa desventura relembrem que o caminho de volta estará sempre gravado no mais profundo do ser de cada um de vocês.

Omar, Adolfo, Marco, Franco, Paolo... todos emudecidos e absortos por uma espécie de malefício que nos roubava a alma. Como se o próprio Mefistófeles houvesse se enfurecido com cada um nós, sequestrando nosso espírito e a paixão pela própria vida.

O tempo segue seu dissimulado transcorrer oferecendo a falsa aparência de continuidade. Sente-se apenas como se houvessem transcorrido alguns minutos... quem sabe fossem anos. É difícil dizer com certeza. O mestiço Eusébio se aproxima em sprint de gazela após deixar para trás vários que queriam caçá-lo. A colisão parece iminente e Johan corre inconscientemente ao seu encontro. Um choque ósseo de cartilagens é escutado em meio ao aguaceiro, pele com pele e lascas com lascas ficam registradas no ar. A dor é penetrante e, empapado em câimbras, Johan se refaz sem se importar com o calvário interno. É só uma questão de acariciar o ego e cavalgar novamente em direção ao escuro horizonte, mais uma vez, para tentar escapar do fogo que consome o seu ser.

A morte e seu clamor se acomodam no ambiente e tomam assento esperando presenciar uma tarde repleta de vísceras, extremidades e cabeças espalhadas... aguardando um espetáculo memorável que pudesse depois ser contado aos filhos e netos da grande República.

Agora que vejo tudinho em perspectiva, tenho que lhe dizer, amiga, que eu tampouco fui uma santa. Olhe, se choro é por raiva e não por vergonha. Passe-me um lenço, por favor, e deixe de me olhar com essa cara de censura? Enfim, não me orgulha contar, mas lhe confesso que duas vezes pequei e me entreguei a outros braços. Uma delas por ingenuidade e pela bebida (a maldita cachaça). A outra por raiva e despeito, quando comecei a suspeitar das andanças do meu defunto “passarinho”.
Transition Based Soccer Possession Training: Theory & Training Ex...

The most important time in a soccer game is when the ball is lost or gained, that is the point of transition. The team that wins possession of the ball, normally has a small window of opportunity to attack the opposition, before they can get organized defensively. In modern soccer, the speed of the counter attack or attacking transition speed is critical in creating scoring chances. Teams will often leave a minimum of one player high when defending, ready to spring into the counter attack the moment the ball is won. A team that is skilled in attacking transition, will look to play early balls into depth behind the defense to create goal scoring chances. Attacking transition is also very effective when a player with excellent pace, runs with the ball at speed, advancing it down the field to create scoring chances, not allowing the defense time to organize. However, attacking transition does not always start by going forward. If the ball is recovered and there are no good options to advance the ball forward into a dangerous position, the ball can be worked backwards or square. By simply maintaining possession of the ball, players on the attacking team are allowed time to open up and spread out the field, moving out of their compact defensive shape. <br />The opposite of attacking transition is defensive transition. If a team in possession loses the ball, they must re-group and organize themselves very quickly, in order to stop the opponents from launching an immediate attack. Defensive transition involves quickly pressuring the ball, while dropping numbers behind the ball into a compact shape. By slowing the ball down and getting players back, it makes it harder for the attacking team to penetrate the attacking area. Transition both from an attacking and defensive standpoint is something that needs to be trained regularly in all possession exercises.<br /><br />

Association Football has for many decades been more than a game, it’s culture has now spread across all continents of the globe to become a multi-billion dollar business which is followed by a significant proportion of the world’s population. It is arguably the most significant human phenomenon of the modern age that transcends national, cultural, and religious boundaries and to provides a common bond across much of humanity.<br /><br />On Parker’s Piece, Cambridge football first became football put skill above force and forbade players to catch and run with the ball. These rules produced a game that was as much a pleasing spectacle, as it was a sporting pursuit; a combination that was above all else responsible for game’s subsequent appeal this was the game adopted by the Football Association.<br />To chart football’s birth Malcolm Walker takes us on a globe-trotting tour that spans the complete history of humankind and ends in a messy birth in an upstairs room in a London pub in 1863. <br /><br />It’s not pretty and it’s not beautiful.

<b>An opinionated masterclass in the art and science of “reading” a match from one of professional soccer’s most respected and beloved international figures</b><br />  <br /> Ruud Gullit knows better than anyone else that to understand soccer you have to understand strategy. When he started playing soccer, his only “strategy” was to get the ball, outrun everyone else to the other end of the field, and score. At first it served him well, but as he advanced through the sport, he learned that it takes much more than speed to make a winning team. He worked his way from the Dutch junior leagues all the way to the legendary AC Milan, eventually retiring from the field to be a trainer, then a manager, and finally a commentator. Each step came with its own lessons, and its own unique perspective on the game. Having looked at soccer through just about every lens possible, Gullit is now sharing his own perspective.<br />  <br /> Most spectators simply watch the ball, but in <i>How to Watch Soccer</i>, Gullit explains how to watch the whole game. He shows how every part of a match, from formations to corner kicks, all the way down to what the players do to influence the referees, is important. And he uses his own vast experience to illustrate each point, so his lessons are filled with anecdotes from his years on the field and insights from his observations as a manager and commentator. This exhaustive guide will change the way even the most die-hard fan watches the beautiful game.<br /><br /><br /><i>From the Trade Paperback edition.</i>
