a very intelligent person told me once, with enough sugar and fat, you can make s%$#! taste great.
I'm starting to feel that this is the case here, right now. today. Mrs La Mendel @La Mendel(I want to make sure i'm not being sexist, i know most of the users on this board are men, but the LA is the singular form of the feminin definite article in French) I will assume you are a lady with great TASTE. Are you into a meal prepared by a chef, or do you prefer a meal prepared by the short order cook? Choose your destiny. Your comments lead me to believe you love the latter.
You mentioned you knew I was a coach. Are you a soccer Mom? I can teach your kids how to be better players. I can teach you how to trap a ball or juggle one or many of them for 1000 touches. I can show you what spaces to go on the field and when to avoid doing so. I can put you on a program to help you improve and become the player you are not. I can pull out the X's and O's and show you why you are wrong. But unlike what you are stating, I am not an egoist, and I'm no Fernando Santos. I would never compare myself to the manager of a national team. You are right.I'm just a coach.
however........I did happen to follow the NT to the USA and Brazil in 2014 and I witnessed in real time the environment of Santosian mistakes.
I saw him smoke. I heard him scream. I saw him bring his players to the cheese buffets. I saw him pull the hairs out of his nose. you did not. Things you never saw on your 86" TV set. The little things that you can't comprehend and the big things that would have made us advance. But it does not matter, because you are a minimalist living in the minimalistic world. Santos delivered this:
Only santos can deliver this. And his little minions that believe in his minimalistic ways, still argue against it. Embarrassing and unforgivable. But Mlle Mendel, you think you know the game?
Having learned the Otto ways and bringing it to Portugal was guaranteed success, go read my posts about it from 3 years ago.
I don't need to ask you what you prefer to eat. You have answered all of this on your own. Because you don't know what a fine meal, prepared by a great chef tastes like. The perfectly fine chopped vegetables, melting in fine herbs and spices, cooked over the perfect temperature, using the best elements to transcend the flavours in. All of the above Soaked in the finest wine, giving the experience of bliss that you can't possibly comprehend.
No you .... will take a ball of crap, injected with liquid sugar, deep fried and coated with white IRON enriched poisonous flour, sprinkled with chocolate, and you will call it delicious. enjoy that ball of crap as you have earned it. enjoy your little fake santos.
