hahaha now what? my team will be the most powerful team in the whole world.

we signed a new partnership with some "russian" guy, and their representative (Kia Joorabchian) is the one who is buyin all the stars from south america to play for corinthians.

Kia Joorabchian has some connection with the investors of chelsea, and some people believe that after 1 or 2 years he will go to play for Chelsea.

from what I saw on tv, boca fans are not happy with Tevez decision.. "he shouldnt go to corinthians. Who are they?".. another fan said "he should go to england.. teams like Manchester United or Chelsea or go to spain.. teams like real madrid or barca"

Why don't use european teams play the likes of Boca in pre season friendlies? FIFA should organise a proper tournament for clubs from all over the world and not that crappy world club championship.

Anyway, back on topic. Has Tevez expressed his view on what team he'd prefer to play for?

I read at TERRA ( (http://esportes.terra.com.br/interna/0,,OI434441-EI2011,00.html) that CORINTHIANS wants to hire some other foreign players like Riquelme and even DAVID BECKHAM as published in the English tabloid SUNDAY EXPRESS... so i imagine that Corinthians will make a really good team for 2005 season!!!
i remember when Manchester United comes to Brazil and played with some brazilian teams...
The top 5 Brazilian teams(São Paulo, Santos, Atletico-Pr, Cruzeiro and São Caetano) are some of the best teams of the hole world, even if compared to teams as Arsenal, Manchester United, Barcelona and Real Madrid...

Stupid move for Tevez, it's only a sideways move and I personally think Boca are a bigger club than the one he's going to. Fred I don't mean any disrespect, but the best players in the world play in Europe and the world's top club competition is the Champions League - basically the majority of Europe don't give a shit about who wins the South American version.

e, they dont giva a shit for it?!?!?!!?!, BOCA, RIVER, SÃO PAULO , SANTOS and many other south americans teams are much better then "BIG" europeans clubs...and of those south American teams that comes the players that now play in BARÇA, REAL and others "BIGs" in Europe!!!...
and u speak to me even so that they don't care?!?! HOW not?!!? if they didn't matter should not have any south American player playing in the europe, but ts not the truth!!
A thing is right, they give a lot of importance for south america, at least in what concerns the soccer!!

If you ask a European to list some South American teams, they'd list at max 5. Where as you ask a South American, they'd list lots of teams, teams of which many of their fellow south americans play at, or played at.

What Classic said about Europeans not caring much about South America is true.



Im not saying their football is bad, infact some of it is great, but the recognition of south american football is not as great as European. I myself watch the Argentinian league, and find it quite entertaining. But to most other people, they wont have a clue.

No, you've not understood what I meant.

People in Europe really don't care about the South American version of the Champions' League, the Copa Libertadores, when you compare how much interest they show to the UEFA Champions' League. The best players in world football all play in Europe, name me one widely recognised 'world star' who plays in South America (do not say Tevez, Cavenaghi, these guys are great prospects but they must prove it in the big leagues like Ronaldinho, Ronaldo, Adriano, etc)?

Over a competitive season I don't believe there's a single South American club side who could finish ahead of teams such as Barcelona, Milan, etc in their domestic leagues.

History has shown what I say is true, from Maradona to Romario through Rivaldo and Ronaldo to Ronaldinho, the top players move to Europe.

Sorry to correct such an intelligent post Classic D, but Cavenaghi moved to Spartak Moscow early this season.

ye the great players go to europe only because $$$ , if the south American teams had money, certainly the players would stay, especially because the most skilled and technicians players of the world come from the south america.. agree?!?!or u will tell me that europeans have players at the level of south americans players, because they dont have...

but in any way you are right ClassicD, European teams have structure and much money and for that they are the best ones...in my opinion just for this reason...

Of course, the UEFA Champions' League while having the best players is also a cash-cow, it makes a lot of money for these clubs along with their domestic leagues when it comes to the big nations (Spain, England, Italy, Germany, etc). For sure the best players in history have come from South America, for goodness sake the two best players always compared as the 'Best Ever' are from there, Pele and Maradona. That's not to say Europe doesn't have it's greats, not even the biggest South American fan could doubt the abilities of Zidane, Figo or Bergkamp in their prime, for example.

P.S. Gunplay, I heard that move had collapsed but I thought he'd moved to a Moscow side in the CL, not Spartak. That's another example of money, players like Wagner Love, Matuzalem, Cavenaghi moving to Russia/Ukraine, hardly a footballing valhalla.

Did Pele play in europe?
No, that was the biggest criticism levelled at Pele about his career, that he never went to Europe and played there. Same reason many people scoff at claims he scored over 1000 goals.

Loz I'm sure Fred mentioned that they have an Abramovich-type figure now.
