Discussion in 'Ecuador' started by barcelonista1981, Oct 12, 2008.
I'm not saying I agree with it...just that it is a rule and therefore, it needs to be followed.
I like your line up!
If Vizuete wants to be a bit more careful, he can also try this midfield
-------------------Cortez (explenation below)------
Cortez there because he is VERY physical and it is the player with the closest characteristics to Castillo we have in the roster.
With Mendez and Urrutia playing a bit more relax because of Cortez, we would get a lot of possesion in the midfield.
The crazy thing about our team now, comparing to our last 10 years, is that we have many options in players and tactics.
I understand you Cris...I just think it's unfair calling Benitez "unprofessional" and "a twat". Back in my (high school and amateur) playing days, when I scored a great goal, sometimes I didn't even remember how I celebrated it until my teammates told me. It's a huge adrenaline rush.
Chucho scored probably the most important goal of his life yesterday. I doubt the first thing on his mind was "let me not take off my shirt because there's a rule against that".
Agree on Guerron.
Totally disagree on Bolanos. He brought the team alive yesterday with his running on the left.
YES!! Or because, "I already have a yellow and I am needed for Venezuela."
BIG DIFFERENCE...c'mon now Manolo, que pasa? Benitez knew that a second yellow would ban him. I might understand if excitment allowed him overreact and pulled his shirt off but we see players all the time getting carded because of it. This is not a new rule - dumb and silly as it might be to you and me.
A professional, knows this while an amateur that is just out for fun doesn't care because it doesn't have the weight of bringing a team to the wolrd's largest event. on his shoulders. being a pro means acting like one for 90+ minutes.
Remember Schweinsteiger's little push against the Croatian in the Euro Cup because he felt he tackled him hard. it was harmful or hurtful but unprofessional - and he got a red. His little shove didn't effect the game as the ball was played on already and it wasn't intended to hurt the other player - but it was unsportmanlike behavior.
Benitez poor judgment might have cost us a badly needed goal in Venezuela.
OH GOD, NOT ANOTHER ONE
CASTILLO NO JUGARÍA ANTE VENEZUELA

Una noticia muy preocupante quedó rondado el pasado día domingo en torno a la Selección Ecuatoriana de Fútbol, y la misma prácticamente se confirmó este lunes en horas de la mañana.
Todo parece indicar a que uno de los puntales de la Tricolor, si con las ausencias de Benítez y Valencia no fuese suficiente, prácticamente se ha confirmado este día lunes antes del viaje de Ecuador hasta Venezuela.
Y es que el volante central de los registros del Everton de Inglaterra, Segundo Alejandro Castillo, tendría que ver los toros de lejos, por una lesión muscular que lo obligó a ser reemplazado en el final de la primera parte.
Según se pudo conocer, Castillo padece un problema muscular menor que no representa ninguna gravedad pero que necesita de un buen tiempo de descanso antes de volver a la actividad; por lo que su presencia en Venezuela está casi descartada.
El entrenador de la Selección Nacional, Sixto Vizuete, tiene en Fernando Hidalgo, Patricio Urrutia y José Luis Cortés a los candidatos para ocupar esta posición, ya que en Venezuela casi con seguridad se ubicará a dos de contención.
i hope guerron wakes up during venezuela..we need him to start playing like he did in the libertadores...and how come bolanos dont start..once he came in against chile he changed da game alot..
I just hope Vizuete will try to go for the win this time not settling for a point like he has done in previous away matches.
If i where coach i would keep elizaga.
Seeing as how we did not get our full points when Venezuela played in Quito it is only logical to try to get them away. Venezuela, Peru and Bolivia are away games that can bring those additional points back to Ecuador if played well.
Equipo PJ G E P GF GC +/- Puntos
Paraguay 9 6 2 1 17 6 11 20
Brasil 9 4 4 1 15 4 11 16
Argentina 9 4 4 1 13 6 7 16
Chile 9 4 1 4 13 13 0 13
Uruguay 9 3 3 3 17 8 9 12
Ecuador 9 3 3 3 11 14 -3 12
Colombia 9 2 4 3 4 8 -4 10
Bolivia 9 2 2 5 11 20 -9 8
Venezuela 9 2 1 6 9 17 -8 7
Perú 9 1 4 4 5 19 -14 7
This is a "must win" game.
Chile plays Argentina and unless they do a 180° turnaround, depending on the Uruguay - Bolivia game (my guess is, a Bolivian victory would best suit Ecuador) we will be able to jump above them on points putting us fourth behind Paraguay, Brazi and Argentina
So yeah, we cannot play this game for a tie because we aren't winning all our home games anymore and still ahve brazil, Paraguay and Argentina to face in Quito...those are not secured points by any means.
I really want this win, like crismerz said this could leave us in 4th place and then the next games aren't till March and those 2 games are at home (I won't say against who but we know what 2 teams they are)I just want to enjoy the Holidays knowing we are in Worlcup position lol
well said we have to make 4th as an xmas present !!!! and let's go Barcelona !!!! en la liguilla papa !!! after this round .. its off to liguilla forums !!!
He11 yeah, this is going to be a good december with us in 4th place and then the passion of my life (Barcelona) will get its 14th star.
The gentleman Ivan Hurtado said it best:
"Ecuador respeta a todos los rivales. Venezuela no será la excepción, pero nosotros vamos con un objetivo claro: ganarle para seguir en camino a la clasificación", dijo el capitán de Ecuador, Iván Hurtado."
I'm glad we're being humble. When Vizuete said "El futbol de Ecuador es mejor que el futbol de Colombia", I cringed. Colombia tying us in Quito at least served to teach this guy a thing or two about being humble.
Yeah but then he said that "Marcelo Bielsa nunca ha ganado nada"...and then beat him.
Guerron might not be part of the starting line up and
we might go with a 4-5-1
WTF is wrong with benitez i cant believe he took off his shirt , ok he scored hes exited but come on now he wont be avaliable to play againts venezuela. He is an amazing player even if he dosent do to much in a game the defence always plays close to him becuase they know of his potential. WE NEED KAVIEDES BACK!!!!
Pablo Palacios has a very similar style to that of the old Kaviedes, Palacios is not a good free kick shooter, but he is A LOT more active than Kaviedes ever was, excellent dribbling skills, good endurance, pressures the opponent's defenders, good header, decent outside shot and for those of us that watch the local tournament we know that Palacios can score.
I really wish for Vizuete to give this guy a chance If Palacios was able to make the fossil known as Zarate a decent player, he'll make Caicedo score.
Ecuador 3 Venezuela 1
Goles: dos de Mendez, uno de Sombra
what time do they play?? 2day
9pm if i'm not mistaken...
News: A las 22, Venezuela - Ecuador
Lets Go Ecuadorrrr!! Give us an early Christmas present!
Very True. I see it the same way
I want those points back. Vizuete I do believe feels the same as I.
Guerron is benched? Good for him. He's got to be a team player. Still, I love him when he plays because even though you don't seem him..that is because he is feared. They at least send two players against him. It's like playing against 10 men.
I want those points back.
