Thanks to VAR and Carrasco

Thanks to VAR and Carrasco


It all ended very madlittle boy. Mad, bad and dangerous. What phrase did the English press give away after City. If they were looking for insult, they define. Because there is nothing in the world more mad than Atleti. crazy, crazy You are a witness. That last minute. Carrasco’s ball that hits Raúl de Tomás’s elbow. There is a ruckus, VAR call. The referee goes to the screen. Observe and judge. Mark the point. Penalty. Carrasco asks for it, Carrasco launches it, Carrasco beats Diego López for the second time in the afternoon. Is the end. There is no more time. The referee had already whistled it before the VAR call. The Metropolitan explodes on your day, that of the children, with the blessed madness caught in the air. LaLiga de 14 again unsettled. The three points. And that feeling: for the new football you have to unscrew your arms before entering the area. The hands conditioned everything. Then and before. Marker.

Vicente Moreno planned the long game, with a defense of five by surprise that Simeone choked. A Cholo who responded with a slate twist: he gave up the 4-4-2 and Llorente’s hybrid motorcycle, to the defense lane, in attack with freedom to climb. It was one of the few things that he moved in the first part of Atlético with the weight of the tie, and the elimination on Wednesday, on his legs. Bad. Sometimes games are like that, kid. The time, the City, the custom of so many games at 9:00 p.m. Espanyol blinded roads, well planted. Simeone shook his head. The vertical sun, its players who asked for the ball at the foot, without rhythm, skill. The most dangerous thing your inexperienced eyes have seen in the afternoon is that header by Cabrera to which Oblak responded with a blow. And he prodded your father, your mother, into the uncomfortable seats. oops. He came from a corner, from a lateral center and for this Atleti that is always a danger.

TIC Tac. The clock ticks while nothing happens. Don’t fall asleep child, don’t fall asleep. João asks you while escaping from Calero to catch that long ball from Kondogbia. His left foot goes up. But he moves the air. A little. Don’t fall asleep, child, don’t fall asleep. It’s not always like that, even though the Metropolitano’s afternoon is chewing cement gum. EITHER worse: rest comes with two clack. On the one hand, Lemar, when trying to control a ball. He falls to the ground in tears. On the other, João, stomp on the ankle. Also Oscar Gil. The three go touched to the booth. None come back.

Dangerous. That is what Cholo is looking for, as soon as he returns. Triple change. Griezmann, Carrasco and Cunha enter to generate play between the lines already settled in their 4-4-2. Then you feel it, how the stands explode, the concrete shakes at your feet, the mouths expel the chewing gum: Oblak sticks out his hand to prevent Darder’s goal and, on the next play, the three who have just entered take the ball to the Diego Lopez network. Grizi distracts, Cunha assists the hole, Carrasco scores. Soccer boy, this is soccer. From 0-1 to 1-0 in half a minute. Now you don’t close your eyes. The more vertical Atleti, with more presence in the parakeet area. There is already rhythm, game, win. Kondogbia’s physique increases, although the last pass is still missing. But then comes the danger. Those rules with the hands that no one understands anymore.

They are all punished. The volunteers and not. And in the second, Atleti’s afternoon is cloudy. A ball from Darder hits Kondogbia from a rebound on the edge of the area. Second yellow, red. Raúl de Tomás, who had appeared for the first time in the match a while ago, remotely directed the foul to Oblak’s net, which failed. 1-1. And the stands raise their voices, and you shout, it’s your day, you don’t like the bad, the rules that no one understands anymore, not even the players themselves.. You see yours launch with more haste than head on the parakeet area. But this year Llorente doesn’t get goals, but he’s dry. That’s when you feel Kondogbia’s hand like a rope around your neck, the mad thing explodes. The hand of Raúl de Tomas, the VAR, the time expired, Carrasco, what nobody understands. Mad, bad, dangerous. The blessed madness. welcome kid.
