    Tbh I'd like Leão to be our youth coach at Santos. I like him.

    Busquets isn't the best the world at his position, to me it's not eve close. His skill set fits that Barcelona system. But if he's playing at a club that demands more of his defensive abilities he will get shown off.

    What Barcelona did this year is interesting. Everyone knew they had a bad defense, but they went out and got even more offense.

    Because of the threat of Suarez, neymar and messi, teams now cannot afford to pressure Barcelona or give players the liberty to not participate on defense.

    This caused teams to be less offensive vs barca, making their defense really good once again.

    Over the past two years barca's downfall was their defense, so you're telling me that the defense got older, remained the same, but because they are winning they are now the best in their positions again?

    Absurd call up, plenty of better and more experienced options available.

    Why not Alex Sandro? Dunga is banking that Felipe Luis will be fit throughout.

    Marquinhos can play left back I think that might be the reason he picked on talent. Looking at his videos he looks like he has good speed , skill and crosses the ball well. Might be a Olympic preparation move

    Ricardo Teixeira is so screwed. He is indirectly mentioned by the DoJ and now has been indicted in Brazil. Apparently he was trying to establish residence in Andorra where he would be free from extradition. He basically has nowhere to go.

    He is in currently back in Brazil at his residence in Rio waiting for the story to unfold itself. I wouldn't step in the US if I was him. He is trying to sell his house in Miami. He will have much better luck there. It will depend if the Brazilian Government takes this case seriously. There is more than enough spotlight on the issue for them to do so.

    Romario must be gloating with Valcke's name being dragged into the mud as well.
