    Been hearing alot about the 22year old on the transfer circuit... Call me blind but watching the WC I barely noticed him, mostly glued to the big guns... :p Anyone have any ideas on what to expect from him?... Skill wise and such?...

    The 23 players that Felipao brought to Japanrea are top notch in terms of skill.

    Just notice how Brazil improved its game after the Brazil X England game (his first from start). He demostrated to be a great (and fast, and precise) defensive midfielder, with great skill and confidence. I think he made the difference on that midfield!

    BOTH KLEBERSON AND GILBERTO SILVA WERE
    TREMENDOUS IN THE WORLD CUP. THEY BROKE UP THE OPPONENTS ATTACK WITH MUCH SKILL AND GRACE. YOU KNOW THEY ARE DOING THEIR JOB
    WHEN YOU HARDLY NOTICE THEM.

    Kleberson got into the attack more, esp.
    vs. Germany(just needs to work on his
    shot outside the box). A player that I
    expect will get better for the green and
    yellow.

    Kleberson, a nauseating Love story

    About to sign for Leeds...

    That's great - until I read the bit about the woman being, well, a girl. 15 years old? Yes, culture, blah blah. But c'mon. Surely he can handle a woman closer to his own age, right?

    Should be interesting.

    Re: Kleberson, a nauseating Love story

    Sounds like an episode of 'The Jerry Springer Show'. There was one about these 2 men from Canada fighting over a 15 Year-old girl (Canada's legal age is 14). Kleberson's girlfriend agreed to the leeds move if he promised to marry her on her 16th Birthday (16 is the legal age in Britain), but she won't be 16 until Valentine's day (14 days after the transfer market closes for the season).

    Kleberson's fate

    So, did the Ronaldinho-ManU saga flop in anyway affected Kleberson's transfer to the Red Devils? I haven't found anything on the net that the deal was consolidated.

    I'd like to know from the Premier/ManU fans here what are they thinking of Kléberson so far. I just hope he will be fit to play the next round of WCQs and show the same football that helped Brazil in the 2nd phase of last World Cup.
