    Dario Conca is just fantastic. Isn’t it strange that the two best midfielders in Brazilian football – Conca and Montillo – are Argentinians?

    Yes here till Christmas. I ignored Ganso as we won’t be seeing him till next year. Flamengo are slightly less awful under Luxemburgo but I’m enjoying watching Flu. If only they could get all their injured players back in action…

    Coxa back in the Serie A! Feels great. It was not a fun start to the year seeing the team struggle in Joinville but they got it together and deserve this!
