    After seeing the match today vs. Fortaleza, there's no doubt the fellas are going up. The question I personally have is how many will remain with the club because the lures of playing abroad will surely arise.

    I have noticed the depth of this team. Many playas today didn't start against Botofogo from the Copa do Brasil match earlier in the week. I am liking what I am seeing. Possible double for this season??? Nice way to recover 2007 season.

    I don't get to see all of their games, but are you talking about depth on the bench? If so, then I for one am happy... I did see the Botafogo match, and I do remember thinking, "Where is the regular line-up?"

    On a side note: did Acosta play for Nautico last year? And if he did, why transfer from a former Serie 'B' to a recently relegated Serie 'B' team? I'm not complaining, mind you, glad to have him on board and all, but why? :confused:

    4 games, 12 points. Vamos p'ra Serie 'A'!!!

    EU NUNCA vou te abandonar!

    I was thinking the same. I didn't see Douglas, Perdigão, or Lulinha. However those people that played in their place did an outstanding job vs 'Fogo.

    According to Wikipedia

    Looks like Lulinha got hurt vs. Fortaleza and may miss the game vs. Sport on Wednesday.

    Yes, Acosta did play for Nautico last year.

    Que nao faz, toma!

    Vamos tomar!

    I got back home just in time to see the two Sport goals. I had spent the whole day singing all the chants in my car, at lunch...everyone thought I was crazy.

    How do you watch the games? I manage to get games occasionally by streaming them on Justin.tv.

    Sigh. I spent the entire day singing/chanting/shouting as well. Many a crazy look from my co-workers...

    I subscribe to Globo Internacional to see these, but I hear there are more available on PFC.

    Don't worry man. I sing the chants at work all the time, lol. No one understands a thing and thinks I'm crazy. Good thing they don't see me during the games.

    PFC has been showing all of Corinthians' Serie B games so far. The Copa do Brasil games were on Globo Internacional.

    Have to disagree w/ you on that one. That save vs 'Fogo was awesome. That secure passage to the Finals. You can't ask more from him.
