These are the same bullshit ass “Temas” you always propose – LOL – If you do a Podcast, talk about the game and nothing else…. it don’t matter in the end, Tabarez dominates the Conversation.

i got a topic that doesn’t cease to haunt me.. no matter how poor uruguay looks, the media always justifies it and unsolicited.. i read ovacion, go to tenfield, even urugol.. a little bit of dissent at the observador..
why do you guys think this is?

i got another one.. maybe i’m imagining this but there have been post-match interviews to suarez and cavani where they have shown “timid” criticism with the tactical deployment in the arg. game.. i can’t find the original link to the suarez quote at the moment, but he said that he was triple-marked at times and no one was coming along to exploit the spaces that were created with the marks being clustered around him.. some interpreted this as a subtle kick to cavani, but i’m taking it differently.. isn’t it the coaches’job as they observe the game, to instruct the… Read more »

“It was the best of times…” said someone.
“Tabarez is still the coach!” said another.
“Then it was the worst of times!” they both agreed then.

Can’t believe the lineup Tabarez has conjured up – Rest In Peace the Uruguay National Team, it was fun while it lasted!

“que cuadro mas amarrete por dios..”
well.. i called it.. not that it was so hard..

wait a minute.. now i read that lodeiro was in the starting 11 with cebolla out..
it’s a start but i wish they would have pulled that amorphous egidio..
hoping the tactical figure is more of a 4-3-1-2 because lodeiro and the wing do not mix.. it worked on the england game if you recall.. altough arg. has better ball possession.. we don’t really need wingers here.. we need bochazos largos looking to spring luisito & el edi.. lodeiro even with all his flaws can really pass the ball better than any other uruguayan player..

Get the apple apps “notas de voz” and even more importantly “Drive” yoru. The first is to record audios in great quality not too heavy in MB, awesome. And drive is to share any stuff/files just by attaching the emails of the people you wanna share with. People over here have u tried those apps? You can also record audios talking to others LCB fans, record them through “notas de voz” share them with us through “drive”. Thats a smart way to keep the blog active with little effort since we can open a short article just with the audio… Read more »

Forgive him Jules, he just discovered the IPAD – one day he’ll discover Fondue. 😉

and let the head-scratching continue:

http://www.ovaciondigital.com.uy/seleccion/guzman-suma-convocatoria.html

vecino – out injured.. only a local from uruguay or a free (not under contract) player can be called upon at this point..
so he calls a guy that has been under rehab all summer (uruguay’s winter) hasn’t played since april, has not even made his debut on the field with pen~arol..
WTF? indeed..

plaga9celeste

how does the old saying go?
“mas vale mal conocido que bueno por conocer”
tabarez has become el maestro of cliche really..
how can you call this guy?
if he had to be “from the process, i take el tata, without contract, fat and out of shape..
but this really was an opportunity to call a new guy, like romero or rodriguez from pen~arol.. good solid players that have been turning heads but have never gotten the call before..
so back to the old “refran”
so, in light of the latest developments – the eleven in mendoza:
muslera
fucile, gimenez, godin, palito or silva
sanchez, corujo, egidio, cebolla
suarez, cavani

of course, el cebolla will last about 35 minutes and will have to be replaced probably with a defensive back to move palito to the midfield..

don’t you sometimes lose hope on la celeste? even though there’s always a mini-miracle liable to happen.. it comes with this sky-blue jersey.. but then you may read news like this: http://www.ovaciondigital.com.uy/seleccion/reunion-auf-definir-marca-indumentaria.html and you realize of the true dimension of this miracle.. in case you can’t read it or don’t want to, i’ll sum it up: the AUF assembly of 1st division uruguayan clubs has been called to discuss and vote a possible very lucrative contract with nike for the endorsement of the nacional team.. this would mean not renewing with puma (current provider of those extra tight jerseys we… Read more »

And a brilliant summary it is…

I’m not surprised, the Old Man is still the coach, the game plan seems to be let Suarez do whatever he wants and Unofficially or Officially Paco decides what’s best for Uruguayan football. Funny the other day on the subway I was assaulted by Puma’s Ghetto targeted retro-Ad Campaign… and THIS is Uruguay’s kit supplier. Anyway Paco knows best 😉

And forgotten in all of this is that Messi un-retired, apparently he found a “personality” by dying his hair blonde and this alone will inspire him to actually give a shit during the big game matches…

I am sure that Puma will up the ante and the AUF will keep them as the jersey supplier.

Only in Uruguay can you have a vote with teams that have obvious conflicts of interest in keeping Tenfield and Puma. I hope that the AUF at least decides to not sell la Celeste brand again to Tenfield. But with AUF president Valdez, anything is possible.

conflict of interest and then some.. tenfiled’s tentacles are everywhere.. take your pick.. from contributing to, allegedly, 50% in the financing for the construction of the manya’s campeon del siglo stadium.. to actually paying entire payrolls for clubs like fenix.. this is a golden opportunity to cut the cancer out.. and whoever falls with the false empire, oh well.. merge with another club if you have to (which is what should be happening with the indigent uruguayan 1st division) funny thing is that without la celeste, tenfield has nothing.. cannot compete with fox sports for latinamerican tournaments TV rights.. they… Read more »
