Brasil Selection of Manager
« on: November 29, 2012, 08:08:38 AM »
Looks like Brasil are set to announce Big Phil Scolari as coach and Perriera as Technical Adviser.
To Quote Romario: "It seems the incompetents at the CBF have got one thing right." Short man not easy  ;D

Hmmm.
The greatest single cause of atheism in the world today are Christians who acknowledge Jesus ;with their lips and walk out the door and deny Him by their lifestyle. That is what an unbelieving world simply finds unbelievable.

Hmmm. Sounds a bit like the arrangement just announced by the TTFF with Shabazz and Charles.

Not really Tempo. Brasil / Argentina has always operated with a Coach, his staff and then a Technical Advisor / Coordinator. The Advisor takes care off many details surrounding the team, which in turn allows the coach to take care of on the field matters.

Brazil in state of shock over Romario omission
By Robert Shaw
6:03PM BST 08 May 2002

IN THE end nothing could save him, not even a tearful press conference. Luiz Felipe Scolari remained unmoved by popular pressure with the result that Romario's name was missing from Brazil's 23-man squad for the World Cup.

"I don't believe the voice of the people is always the voice of God," explained the coach.

So many things weighed against Romario: age (36), tactical incompatibility (how to fit a footballing genius into an essentially defensive scheme), personality (he is his own man), as well as an unwillingness to accept Scolari as the father figure in this "familia Scolaris".

Scolari wore his customary hangdog, hunted look at the press conference in Rio, where he tossed another explanation into the pot.

"Romario's situation involved tactical considerations. The non-involvement of the player in the 2001 Copa America also influenced the decision."

Vanderlei Luxemburgo, the former national coach, concurred. "Felipe never forgave him for this," he said. Scolari's treatment of the veteran striker after Romario's preference for a trip with his club to Mexico rather than the political turbulence and the on-off-on shambles in Colombia was in character.

Mauro Silva was also a casualty of this stern disciplinarian line when he changed his mind at the airport after checking in his bags for the flight to Colombia. Not even the possibility of donning the captain's armband in Korea and Japan could persuade the 34-year-old Deportivo man that the risk was worthwhile, and particularly as successive Brazilian coaches had effectively forgotten him since his part in the 1994 triumph.

Scolari's family rules - including an attempt to regulate the sexual behaviour of his players for much of May and June - also meant that another Deportivo man missed out. Djalminha had been widely tipped to get the nod from Scolari before a more violent motion of his head directed at club coach Javier Irureta tipped the scales against him.

Djalminha's rush of blood opened the way for Kaka, the Sao Paulo tyro who has the loose-limbed, languid style of a Latin Steve McManaman, but a better strike rate.

The other surprise choice was Vampeta - infamous for his nude pose for a Brazilian magazine - who has shown some recovery of the form that made him the star of the show when Brazil trounced Argentina 3-1 in the home qualifier in July 2000.

Under the stewardship of Carlos Alberto Parreira, Vampeta has gone some way at Corinthians to forget his bad spell last year at Flamengo. Both Vampeta and his former club colleague, Edilson, managed to escape the crisis in Rio football to salvage their own World Cup chances.

For those accustomed to the rhythmic, melodious "futebol-arte" of Garrincha, Jairzinho and Zico, the choice of only one Rio-based player may come as a shock and further dispel some notions about the Brazilian game.

With Romario overlooked - the local Jornal do Sports has already identified the harassed Scolari as "Public Enemy No 1" after the exclusion of Rio's favourite son - the sole Rio representative is Juninho, the former Middlesbrough player whose club, Flamengo, have descended into debt and political infighting. Even he is an adopted son of the city, though: he originally comes from Sao Paulo.

Football in Rio is in a mess. The four main clubs are out of all the main competitions, the clubs are looking to offload many of their staff for financial reasons, and there is an attempt to revive the neglected state championship.

Juninho admitted this decline - he is also likely to return to Atletico Madrid after the World Cup - as he reflected on the balance of the squad.

"The results prove that football in Sao Paulo is better than in Rio. So four from Sao Paulo were picked and only one from Rio."

This trend may have also been boosted by Scolari's choice of players from states such as Minas Gerais and Rio Grande do Sul. The Brazilian media have dusted off some well-worn stereotypes of Gaucho cowboys and "churrascarias" (traditional barbecues) seasoned with distinctive rural accents, though the selection of the likes of Gilberto da Silva and Kleberson probably reflect the Scolari preference for hard-running midfielders rather than a regional bias.

With Djalminha excluded and other gifted creative midfielders such as Alex failing to make the 23, a popular concern is that Scolari is trying to create a cloned family, modelled on his ideal formation - the Parreira side of 1994.

Ronaldo remains central to Brazilian hopes, despite his long-term worry over injury. There is an injury doubt too about Rivaldo, so much expectation has been heaped on the resurgent Ronaldinho Gaucho, who has matured at Paris St Germain and showed a new dynamism during last month's 1-1 draw in Lisbon.

However, the central issue remains: is Scolari right to exclude Romario? Time will tell.
