    Let's add that René Pontoni was Pope Francis' favorite player.

    That's seventy years ago, he couldn't have watched Pontoni play.

    Hello! I'm really sorry for a wrong thread, but i need some help, my mental health depends on it. Long time ago i read an article about some english player from sixties or seventies. And now i can't remember anything aside he was an alcoholic and collected tombstones and paintings in his house. He played for Fulham or Derby, or something like this. I wanna read about him again, but just cant find anything, and it pises me off. Can someone help me.

    Country:
    Brazil
    Guarani - 1978 & 1986 - Brazil


    "1 really small team, 2 totally different generations and a whole lot of talent!"


    1978: National Champions (Honorable mention - 4th place in 79’s Copa Libertadores).
    Team:
    Neneca
    Mauro - Gomes - Édson - Miranda
    Zé Carlos
    Zenon - Renato
    Capitão - Careca - Bozó
    Coach: Carlos Alberto Silva


    1986: National championship 2nd place.
    Team:
    Sérgio Nery
    Marco Antônio - Ricardo Rocha - Valdir Carioca - Zé Mário
    Tozin - Tite
    Boiadeiro
    Catatau - Evair - João Paulo
    Coach: Carlos Gainete


    National team level players:
    78: Zé Carlos (former star for Cruzeiro), Zenon (later a star for Corinthians), Renato (82’WC) and Careca (Napoli fame).
    86: Ricardo Rocha (Real Madrid, 90’94’WCs), Evair (Atalanta, Palmeiras and unfairly cut off from 94’WC list) and João Paulo (Bari/best foreigner in 90’91 Serie A fame).

    The irony: Careca, 78’s champion with Guarani, now playing for São Paulo was decisive for taking away the title from Guarani in 86.
