Great stuff, we now have a Peruvian and Brazilian football thread. I'd be tempted to start a Paraguayan football thread as I enjoy football from there when I have a chance to watch it but nah not into it a sufficient amount.

 

Really hope Flamengo wins this year because of the 2 Peruvians, although I am Atletico Mineiro in Brazil. I fell in love with the 2013 team that had Ronaldinho, Bernard, Jo (in his prime) and Victor. 

 

Also would like Sao Paulo to do well. Christian Cueva is arguably the best player in the league alongside Lucas Pratto who is also a cracking player. Wondering how Rogerio Ceni will do as a manager. Surely not as bad as Bauza.

I don't believe São Paulo will do that well, but Flamengo will definitely be up there again.

I don't have a clue on many of the Brazilians in this league (aside from the obvious ones, Dudu, Lucas Lima, Diego) but Sao Paulo have quality foreigners. Christian Cueva and Lucas Pratto are the best players in the league in their position and will have many goals between each other this season. I also liked what I saw from Buffarini in the 2014 Libertadores. They seem to have a lack of depth though. Andres Chavez can score goals but he's limited overall, while Gilberto couldn't even do it in the MLS. 

If they take advantage of their quality I think they'll do fine. Sometimes quality over quantity is the way to go.

Chapecoense up top of the Brazilian first division at the moment and have looked good in the Libertadores. After the plane crash, they have done extraodinarily well at recruiting new players and staff. Fair play to them.

It's almost 3 years since the world cup. How has Brazilian football developed in the mean time?

Are there new youth academies? Do the national teams (adults and youth) play modern systems now?

Not much has changed. The national team is doing well under Tite but brazilian football remains a mess.

Not really, things haven't changed much.

What a volley from Diego to put Flamengo 1-0 up.

A team with Trauco, Guerrero, Diego and Rever can't be doing this poorly in the league. Surely they'll kick on from here.

I chose the right game to watch. Paolo Guerrero with a hattrick and an assist in a 5-1 win over Chapecoense. What a top striker, seriously he's just having fun in Brazil. He can still cut it in Europe, his age will put teams off though and he's happy in Rio.

I just turned it on. Dare I say it, but Paolo Guerrero is becoming one of the best free kick takers in the world.

He's peaking right now. Germans will be left with their mouth open if they see how well he plays now.

Ended up being a dull game but Guerrero yet again was unplayable. Trauco had an OK game. Cueva was a bit better than his recent form suggests, he was denied on the line of a goal. Shame as that would have really helped his confidence.

Rogerio Ceni is too inexperienced.

43 year old left wing-back Ze Roberto is still going strong xD. He plays for Palmeiras.

On a lesser note, Rafael Sobis also still playing and is even more lazier than he used to be!

Corinthians vs Flamengo on BT Sport now. 

Corinthians top of the league, only conceded 7 goals and have not lost a game after 17 games. 

Flamengo in joint 4th with Palmeiras in the fight for automatic qualification to the Copa Libertadores.

Jo should have done so much more with his career. Another one of the "wasted talent" brigade.

I wouldn't agree with that to be honest. Sure he didn't live up to European standards, but he had a very good 2013 where he won the Copa Libertadores and scored a few in the confederations cup in Brazil. He got to play with Ronaldinho and looks like he's going to win another trophy. He's not been a seasonally consistent player, but when he stepped up, he's done well and he's won a lot.

That's South America though, where are his achievements in Europe? He failed on the big stage with Manchester City and Everton whilst not looking clever with CSKA Moscow or Galatasaray.

He may have been a flop in Europe, and sure he's not world class or anywhere near a top player. Its still South America though. The standard may not be anywhere near what it once was these days but the Copa Libertadores is still a prestigious trophy as is the Brasileirao. He's got his chance to play for Brazil, did well in one tournament that the Selecao managed to win. Its the other half of the footballing world at the end of the day and he's quite a successful player here.

Now, I'm not going to compare him to the following players as that would be silly, but Riquelme and Veron had their successes in South America  (while also did well in Europe) and both were excellent players and showed that even in recent times, you don't have to play in Europe to be a great player. Paolo Guerrero is another. 

Jo isn't a great player, but he's a damn successful one and he's contributed to those trophies that he's won.
