Boca and its always crisis

This leadership in the Football Council skin had already been disenchanted Sebastián Battaglia in early October last year, when the defeat at Monumental highlighted some of the shortcomings of a coach with little experience and little experience to cover such a chair.

Questions came and went, but became flesh at the end of that month, with the defeat against Gimnasia in the Bombonera, and Dante’s spectacle of the players who get up from the microphone in order of Juan Roman riquelmefor unlikely “compliments”, overreacted, which left sequels in the relationship between the parties.

The technician was seen outside and the Council began shuffling names to fill the position. Speculation took what remained of 2021 and the typical usury maneuvers were not lacking, with a Riquelme who with his statements has made the good cop and the bad cop and has not finished confirming his positionperhaps to delay their doubts in time.

Long last, Battaglia qualified for the Libertadores and won the Copa Argentina. And between that and the Council’s doubts about finding a successor, the simplest option was for the manager to renew the contract and all friends.

The truth is that the splinters of that conflict and the causes that originated it remained almost on the surface, barely covered with a patina of success that soon it was forgotten by the passage of a team in constant flirtation with mediocrity.

The Council made an economic effort to give Battaglia the tools it did not have (the return of Pipa, Óscar Romero, Pol Fernández), but Boca changed its name and not its shape. Thus, the manager is supported by sporadic exploits (before the Argentine Cup, after the victories against River and Estudiantes) and poor performances and inconsistent decisions bring him back to the abyss. Cyclically, until at some point the inevitable happens.

In the meantime, Boca he deludes himself with references to Núñez’s party. A triumph that supported him from an emotional point of view, but in which he almost did not kick on goal and took advantage of a childhood mistake by his rival. Valid, but insufficient. The draw against Arsenal and the bad defeat of Cali left the king naked. Yet.

Battaglia doesn’t help either. It is true that the players play badly, but the manager exposes himself with his decisions. He has known for months that he will not be able to count on the central starting couple due to the disqualifications of Conmebol. However, he went to Colombia with a duo (Zambrano-Ávila) not filmed (they barely played four starting games before Cali).

What’s more, Why, if Zeballos was to take Villa’s place, did he play so little? El Canguito had never been a starter this year and Battaglia launched him on the pitch with Benedetto, with whom he never shared the advantage. The coach arrived at Libertadores’ debut with a formation he had already been able to try and simply decided not to. Minimal, little foresight, improvisation. And it stinks of neglect.

Beyond all, the most serious thing about the situation (or a reflection of it) is that Boca does not have a precise idea, a marked style. Also, it feels like the team is playing one thing with players capable of playing another. On the pitch, the posture is similar to Miguel Russo’s Boca, but with light players, with good feet, and instead of having the ball, he gives it to the opponent and stops against, but in the middle he lacks the energy, the ability to recover quickly, and lately he makes rookie mistakes.

A more complex scenario than it seems

That’s the way it goes, credit that isn’t much is running out quickly. Of course, It is not an easy decision for a Juan Román Riquelme who is also responsible for having a manager who does not convince him. The scenario is more complex than it seems: JR knows that with Battaglia he has a direct line and a power of influence (there are many who say it is more than this …) that he will not have with a consecrated coach, of a proven category. , who would never let them mess with the form …

The cycle of the most winning player in the puppy’s history is as questionable as it was before the victory in La Plata. The situation is more serious because it was clear that the team, without key players, will have to fight a difficult group. And before Always Ready everything is played. Always Crisis, chapter 1000.
