    I thought I would start this thread so we could post questions about a specific player and if anyone has seen them play lately or knows of any news they could post.

    I had a few players that I had been looking forward to seeing (I thought, by now, on larger European club), but have still yet to see them.

    1) Nilmar Honorato da Silva, also known as Nilmar. Previously with Lyon. I know he had contract issues, but if I believe correctly he put up very good points with Corinthians in the 2005 - 2007 seasons. In FIFA 08 (Yes, I know not an actual source) he is not to be found. I had thought he had signed for Internacional, any news?

    2) Fabio Paim. The highly anticipated Sporting Lisbon prospect loaned to KSV Roselare (I believe) for the 2006/2007 season. I believe he had a serious knee/leg injury and it was said he would never fully overcome his injury and became nervous on and off the ball. Not on the Sporting CP team this year or the KSV Roselare (I maybe wrong). Club, fitness, progress, wondering about it all, any news?

    3) Carlos Eduardo de Castro Lourenco, also known as Carlos Rincon or Rincon; The highly skillful and versatile defender/midfielder on the books at Manchester United. It seems as though he had been loaned almost everywhere and thought he ended up at Empoli FC. Wondering about fitness and progress, any news?

    By coincidence, earlier today I was checkin to see what Nilmar's current status is. 39 goals in 55 games for Corinthians, and is now at Internacional after his contract with Corinthians was cancelled due to the club owing him 2million euros :eek:

    Last I saw of Nilmar was in that Dubai Cup match against Inter Milan where he scored a great bicycle kick.

    He's hurt again, and will be out till March.

    Fabio Paim, last I heard, was at loan at Paços de Ferreira in Portugal. Not sure how he is doing because I haven't watched anything in Portugal this year.

    I think Rincon has been lent out to Empoli by Inter Milan. I don't know anything else.

    Thanks Mengão! I haven`t seen any of them play, live, but was looking forward to it muchly. It is a shame about Nilmar as he always seems to be hurt when things start to look up. His ability to recover seems good as during the Dubai Cup (or at least the few clips I saw) he was impressive and he just had a serious injury, but is quite injury prone to say the least. I have yet to see Fabio Paim play, hopefully he gets some playing time. If I am not mistaken it was Portugese standout defender Atunes that played last season for Paços de Ferreira and now plays with Roma. I saw him during the UEFA Champions League game against Manchester United where he still stood out as a talent even with the likes of Nani, Ronaldo, etc. facing him down the flanks. And, Rincon as I thought was at Empoli. He doesn`t get any playing time which seems beside the point of loaning out a player. Maybe a late bloomer but I heard so many good things about him years ago. Needs to get playing time to showcase his talent.
