Coelho: my part in his downfall

January 24, 2008 at 21:40 1 comment

i was listening to BBC radio Fivelive a couple of weeks ago when i heard Roddy Forsyth say that Celtic were in the market for a defender and had their eyes on Brazilian ‘lateral direto’, Coelho. i emailed fivelive to say that Coelho was not a defender but was in fact, more of a winger. I don’t know if the message reached Celtic but the move fell through and Coelho is back with Corinthians. Sorry Coelho!

    Você atrapalhou o Coelho, mas ajudou o Corinthians!
    O pessoal do Celtic e da Fivelive seguiu seu conselho porque costumam acompanhar suas narrações! hehe
    Ficou legal o blog, Jon! Parabéns!
    Abs, Marcos

    here’s a rough translation

    you ‘hurt’ Coelho but helped Corinthians.
    the people at Celtic and Fivelive followed your advice because they usually listen to your [TV] commentary. haha
    the blog is cool! congratulations!
