      Amilcar – i haven’t really given it much thought yet as the Paulista still has a long way to go. but if Santos can keep their squad together, it could be a very interesting tournament. i will be writing a ‘guide to the Brasileiro’ before the national championship kicks off

    I like the paradinha.

    Things like Neymar’s humiliation of Rogério and Fred’s embarassing miss are most entertaining.
