About less than a year ago, I went on to write about Ronaldinho’s problems with Flamengo, and his on and off the pitch troubles. I even doubted that he could return to at least part of the form he showed at Milan, before getting back to Brazil, and also said that it’d too dumb to anyone to look for his services.
Boy, was I wrong!
Guys, unfortunately I don’t live off this blog. If you ever read my bio on this site, you’re aware I’m currently an Economics student, so I don’t have much spare time to dedicate here. Also, as I’m writing on WordPress, I don’t have AdSense or any other form of profiting off traffic, so my absences are (unfortunately) often. Hopefully I’ll manage one day to squeeze some time from my schedule to write a piece or two per day.
Still, relevant news? CBF’s Team of the Year was announced, and after the jump you’ll find the names.
When the season began, there were three favorites for the Brazilian League title: Corinthians, Vasco and Fluminense. They were 1st, 2nd and 3rd in the league table last season respectively, and they were also expected to challenge for the title again this year. But at the moment, while Vasco and Fluminense are pretty much on the title run and looking like good contenders and Corinthians lost much of their step after focusing on Copa Libertadores, there is a party crasher in the middle of them, one that stands at 1st place and doesn’t seem to be willing to move from there: Atlético Mineiro.
Atlético-MG has been on a good mood lately. They currently stand at 1st place in Brazilian League after 10 rounds, winning 8 matches in a good fashion. Their latest at home against Internacional showed how strong they’ve been as they beat Internacional, which haven’t feature Chelsea-bound Oscar and striker Leandro Damião as they’re in England with Brazil’s U23 squad, 3-1. That also put an end to a 10 year long taboo where they haven’t managed to beat Internacional since 2002. They didn’t need much to address on this transfer window, but they made a move to add depth.
Atlético-MG has been under a very good phase. They are standing at 1st place in the Brazilian League after 8 rounds, managed to make Ronaldinho Gaúcho serviceable for them, and they’ve been stable on and off the pitch; something that I sincerely haven’t seen in my life since I follow football. Well, now it seems they’re aiming higher grounds too, as according to Italian site Sky Sport 24, Galo wants to get Robinho from AC Milan. Continue reading
