2012 Brazilian League Team of the Year: Fluminense and Atlético Mineiro domination

Fluminense’s Fred is the best player of the year

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.

Corinthians reaches marquee value in Brazilian football

First Brazilian club to reach R$ 1b in value

As a football fan, I don’t like Corinthians. In particular, due to a city rivalry between São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro, I’m not very fond of São Paulo teams. But as an Economics student, I’m in awe at how there’s a huge distance between São Paulo teams and Rio de Janeiro teams when it comes to finances, and in that aspect I must take my hat off to them. Most of it due to Corinthians board and their ability to push their team at higher grounds when it comes to money. Continue reading
