Marco Silva

17871501_qAIJa.jpeg

 

Em cinco anos e três meses de consulado Carvalho, que englobou quatro treinadores, foi ele o único a conseguir um título digno desse nome. A Taça de Portugal 2015. Recebeu como paga dessa conquista o despedimento imediato, com a cumplicidade e o aplauso de figuras que então gravitavam em torno do desvairado presidente e se apressaram a virar a casaca assim que o vento soprou em sentido contrário, tipo "antifascistas de 26 de Abril".

Para o lugar dele chegou alguém a embolsar dez vezes mais sem conseguir vencer nada de relevante. Mesmo assim, Marco Silva manteve a classe: ninguém o viu envolvido em sessões públicas de lavagem de roupa suja - especialidade de quem o despediu em Alvalade. Hoje no Reino Unido, como treinador do Everton, acaba de ser notícia em todo o mundo com a goleada que aplicou ao poderoso Manchester United. E segue em sétimo na classificação da Premier League: a sua equipa é a primeira após os Seis Grandes (Liverpool, City, Tottenham, Arsenal, Chelsea e United). 

«There may have been some doubts expressed about Silva's position not so long ago, but this blistering run of home form - and a style which will win full favour from Everton's fans - surely means he will be given time to build, as he should», escreve a BBC, entre elogios à «devastadora forma» apresentada pelos toffees em campo. 

Marco Silva merece estes elogios. E merece também uma palavra de apreço dos sócios e adeptos do Sporting que não são ingratos, conservam boa memória e jamais se deixam iludir com bravatas verbais destinadas a disfarçar a ausência de troféus.

    Não sei onde foi retirar os comentários que transcreveu, visto que não indica nem a fonte e muito menos a data! O que neste caso é importante, porque podem ser opiniões do inicio da época, altura em que Marco Silva era contestado pelos adeptos.
    Eu, neste forum de adeptos (https://www.grandoldteam.com/forum/forums/everton-forum.2/), aquilo que leio (e à data de ontem, 25/04/2019) é isto:

    - "...we’ve already won one more game than last season. And so far lost one less (though that could obviously change with 3 games to go). I wonder if the losses were spread out evenly would people still be fuming.
    I view it this way. We’ve scored more, conceded less, play better football, will likely have more points, have a younger squad and have on the whole improved as the season has gone on as well as fixed a significant flaw (set pieces). That all seems pretty positive to be honest."

    - "He must’ve built one of the hardest working teams in the league. Digne and Coleman get up and down, Gueye doesn’t stop and Bernard, sig, Richarlison and DCL all run hard. That’s always a good place to start."

    - "Your argument rests on the basis that this is a very good squad, when clearly we have almost a very good first team - when all are available and there to be called on. Add to that we are minus a striker who can score regularly - a deficiency Silva has had to manage with all season. In short: it's not a squad that we should expect to break into the top 6 with...which is the only place we can go at the moment.
    Then there's the question of what the DoF handed Silva to do this season after the last two failed managers had shorn us of any sort of method or style of play. We now have that methodology in place. We have our identity back as a team and the players are buying into that, as per Coleman's interview post United game.

    - Starting XI age down
    - Good style of football in place, but pragmatic when need be
    - Ability to beat top 6 clubs confirmed
    - On course for a reasonable 50 odd point tally
    - Plan to add a striker and to address other key positions for next season in place
    I just dont see how much more Silva could be expected reasonably to do. It feels like you've painted yourself into a corner on this. I know that feeling well enough."

    - " think despite all this tho we can consider this season a season of progress.
    I mean the important things are improved results, 2 years without a top 6 win then we get 3 on the bounce. Those results dont mask the Fulham and Newcastle results for me, but they do give me something to cling to. Im also not as annoyed about the cup exits as most, I guess I just expect us to get knocked out by tosh, clearly thats on me.
    If we can get 7th and Europa I would be fairly happy, considering that's the min I expected, 8th would be alright, but even being in the mix with 3 games to go is decent, YES, we should have wrapped up 7th already and be closer to 6th, but it is what it is.
    I don't know what others expected, it was always gonna be too early to attack the top 6, for me that was always gonna be next season, off the back of a 7th place. Next season we certainly need to improve our consistency. But theres only 2 consistent teams in this league currently and they are both challenging for the title.
    Thats of course the level we need to be at, not fighting for 7th, not challenging for top 4, entering a Derby knowing that victory will give us a great chance at the title. But we are a good few years and a few superb transfer windows away from that, but if we can progress ever year, it wont take us long." (Nesta opinião por exemplo, é possível ver a grande diferença entre quem tem a noção da realidade do seu clube e quem vive numa outra dimensão e com permanentes alucinações!)

    - "I enjoy the style he is implementing. Get on the ball and play when we need but sometimes go direct. Get in shape defensively and hold firm or aggressively pursue our opponents in the press.
    It's pretty boss. Much to improve but still, remember Allardyce / Koeman / Unsworth?!"

    E poderia estar aqui o dia todo a transcrever. No entanto, desafio quem se quiser dar ao trabalho, a procurar no mesmo blog, comentários que peçam a saída do treinador.
