  1. Yes, they need more midfield options as well. I now he's been terrible for some time now, but I feel like a player in the mold of James, a creative attacking midfielder, could be a valuable addition to the squad.
  2. Feel like Thiago Silva on a free transfer would be a good option for Liverpool.

    Campeonato Brasileiro - Brazil

    Yes, Copa do Brasil. After Campeonato Brasileiro, it's the most important national competition. Differently from Europe though, the winner automatically qualify for next season's Copa Libertadores, which is the equivalent of Champions League.
  4. But in the books, Barça are getting 70 Million euros from this deal in this "fiscal year". They will only account Pjanic's purchase next season.

    Campeonato Brasileiro - Brazil

    State championships used to be really important back in the Pelé days. But nowadays, most fans really don't care. The level is terrible. State championships only survive because they are the main source of revenue of states federations and in order to get elected, the CBF president need their votes. But they are relic of the past, a source of deficit for the clubs and they also squeeze the whole schedule, with Campeonato Brasileiro starting only in April and ending in early December.
  6. I don't think so. I think the real reason behind the deal is that Barcelona needs to balance its books, and Juventus helped Barcelona doing that at the price of getting a promissing midfielder. There were some rumours about some indiscretions last year, but he returned from the coronavirus pause in really good physical shape and he also put an effort to learn catalan. I feel like he really wanted to make an impact for Barcelona, even though this hasn't been translated on the pitch, since La Liga's return his performances have been subpar. Still, I find insane to judge him based only in his last 3,4 matches like some Barcelona fans and analysts are doing, specially when he was arguably Barça's best midfielder in the early stages of this season until his injury.

    Campeonato Brasileiro - Brazil

    It´s crazy, but this is how things are done in Brazil.
  8. Richarlison comes across as a very humble and down to earth lad. I saw the interview in which the quotes were taken out. It´s a Youtube channel dedicated to football but they try to be funny, it´s more directed to younger audiences, the interviewer, Bolivia, even wears a mask. I just don´t see it as provocative, he said that van Dijk is a great defender and then he laughs mentioning that he already dribbled the dutch. But it´s more like something you remember as you´re speaking, it didn´t really fell like he was trying to mock van Dijk in any way. on 13min40s.
  9. I find the moving image even more incriminating.
  10. I agree. We have a funny expression in Brazil for that kind of goalkeeping: "mão de alface" ("lettuce hands").

    Coronavirus (COVID-19) Outbreak

    Thank you very much for all the messages guys. I really appreciate it. Everton from Grêmio? I didn´t know that. I´ll check it out. Bolsonaro is definitely the worst leader in the world when it comes to the response to the coronavirus, I agree.

    Coronavirus (COVID-19) Outbreak

    My uncle died this afternoon. It´s such a tricky disease, we thought he was cured and then he ended up returning to the hospital last week and died there.

    Coronavirus & The Premier League

    In my opinion, the Corona crisis will extend for years and eventually football will return before it´s over. Unfortunately, I don´t think a totally safe scenario similar to the pre-corona days is possible. Maybe I´m too pessimistic but I think the Bundesliga scenario is here to stay and this is how football will operate for years. Yes, football is not an essential activity, but eventually the majority of players will end up returning because, yes, that´s what they love to do and also because they´re aware of the huge financial implications of not playing for months or even years.
  14. I have a question for Chelsea fans: What´s Robben´s place in Chelsea´s history? Is he considered an idol?
