  1. I read recently a rumour about Rodrygo possibly moving to Liverpool. I really hope this move actually happens. Rodrygo is way too talented to play second fiddle. Due to his versatility, he's moved to the right-wing, but his best position is in the left. He needs to move to a team where he always play LW and where he is the focal point of the attack, especially considering the Mbappé signing. His two goals tonight against Bilbao show how good he can be when his potential is maximized.
  2. Haven't seen much of Liverpool this season, but the impression I have is that the lack of a realiable source of goals ,other than Salah, could cost them in the Premier League race.
  3. But can any arab government sit at the table with Israel at this point without losing its legitimacy before its own population? In my opinion, restraining Israel is imperative for the americans in terms of damage control. The notion that the Global South will unite over the palestinian cause is obviously pure fiction. But at the same time, the images coming from Gaza definitely hurt american image worldwide and, most especifically, the Biden administration.
  4. The impression I have looking from afar is that after the events from October 7th, the israeli government settled on solving their "Gaza Strip problem" once and for all. In other words, ethnic cleansing Gaza. Netanyahu and co. probably calculated that the Hamas terrorist attacks had generated a wave of sympathy towards Israel from the international community, and that they could push an extremely tough strategy without much public condemnation in the West. More, they probably counted that Europe, sooner or later, considering the humanitarian tragedy in Gaza, would end up accepting thousands of palestinian refugees, in a repeat of 2015. Obviously, all their forecast failed miserably and know they don´t really seem to really a plan. It seems that they´re killing innocent people due to a strange state of inertia. As the Vietnam War shows, even if one of the combatants kills a large number of enemies, it´s impossible to win a war if one doesn´t have a clear objective. This is a terrible tragedy, and the worst part of it is that only an intervention from the americans can bring it to an end. Unfortunately, it seems that one of the few bipartisan consensus in Washington is supporting Israel no matter what.
  5. Hopefully those two goals can give him confidence and also more minutes.
  6. IMO The whole "Essequibo is venezuelan" is a diversion by Maduro. In order to the US lift its sanctions against Venezuela, Maduro promissed fair and free elections. The problem is, if that happened he would inevitably lose those elections. The chavistas are trying to create the poison and at the same time sell the antidote. The goal is to destabilize America's backyard with the intention of getting the Biden administration to make concessions on that promisse of free and fair elections. I don't believe guyanan oil reserves are the main aspect of this conflict. I mean, even if Venezuela got hold of them, they wouldn't able to do much. Chavez and Maduro turned PDVSA, the state-run oil company, into a shadow of its former self. It's incredibly corrupt and inefficient, I don't see how they would be able to increase production.
  7. I agree. Tite is still the best brazilian coach and yet he looked completely out of depth in 2 World Cups. The level of coaching in Brazil leaves a lot to be desired. I would love to see Venezuela qualifying for the World Cup just to see Soteldo playing at the highest level. He's very underrated due to his height, but he's such a fun player to watch.
  8. Yep. The Diniz experiment has been a huge failure. He simply doesn't have enough experience and expertise at this point of his career to coach Brazil, even if it's on a temporary basis. The worst part of it is that Ancelotti is close to extending his contract with Real Madrid. There are not good options in Brazil and the squad is simply not that good. I think CBF should give Mourinho a call.
  9. Endrick should be on the pitch. He's much more of a thread than Raphinha at RW.
  10. It is stupidity not malice. The Libertadores final was a mess well. I don't think this game will end well. The players are nervous.
  11. Definitely. Especially the Rio police, they shoot first and then ask questions. And they have a long history with the argentinian barras. I still can't believe CBF thought it was a good decision to mix argentinian and brazilian fans. Anyone with a brain knew it was a bad idea. Those idiots think we are in Europe.
  12. A fight broke out between argentinian and brazilian fans in Maracanã. Really stupid decision not to assign a sector of the stadium for the visiting fans. This is South America.
  13. Yes. I would say it's the most probable result.
  14. Brazil and Argentina tomorrow. Brazil coming from two defeats versus Uruguay and Colombia. I am really pessimistic, especially with Diniz sticking with a formation with only two midfielders. Hopefully, Endrick gets some playing time. That's all I am hoping for.
  15. I understand the anger of the argentinian people. Fernandez completely destroyed the economy. At the same time, Milei seems more of the same. Argentina already tried liberalism with Menem in the 90s. Dollarization and privatization has already been done in Argentina and it didn't end well the first time. The relationship with Brazil is one to watch here. Milei said he wouldn't trade with Brazil and China, since both countries are governed by leftists, but Brazil and China are their most important trade partners. He will need to back down, if only out of pure pragmatism. Having said that, Lula was extremely unwise to use his weight so the Development Bank of Latin America loaned 1 billion dollars to Argentina during the elections. Brazilian government clearly tried to influence the result of the argentinian election.
