Let's hope we see some improvement!

And not calling Ronaldinho would be a step on the right direction. Fingers metaphorically crossed, because when I type with crossed fingers tTw assjgps.

I agree re Ronaldinho Gaucho. Here is one 'scenario'.....Mano gets sacked and Luxemburgo gets his job = goodbye RG in the yellow. Stranger things have happened.

That would be absolutely hilarious. :D If that day came to pass, I'd love to be a fly on the wall witnessing RG's temper tantrum.

No Kaka is pretty fine. He played a handful of games as started and showed to be a bench player, now R10 is like Mano Menezes signing his dismisse. The guy shows a total lack of professionalism, the same thing that made him from best player in the world by miles in a problem and made us lose a World Cup and very little of that magical football to be there. Mano could explain how much he is getting to call him or just wear one of those shirts "R10's bitch".
It is a bit like a cheated husband to buy a hat to hide his horns.

This squad has manz attacking midfielders, I just wonder who will be the no.5 Too manz primadonas in this squad, RG obvious, Hernanes ?Is he a squad player or plays for Hernanes .. some others.... Well, I suppose Mano did the best from the players available.

THere are many injuries, at leat the GK position is well covered, have you seen Diego Avles playing recently?? He deserves the convocation,
I hope that RG will not disturb too much, and that Sandro/Elias will cover the volante no.5 roll, without getting a red card.

Some players I don't know so I can not comment anything about them

After the game I will know better

Neimar and Ganso, this duo plaing together and Gano wearing rthe No. 10, well this is of course wishful thinking, the Mano I used to know was not fearful. I would like to see him giving RG the no. 20, sub for Ganso..

If we are talking ex Gremistas here, Jonas is more promising, I have seen him lately in Valencia, giving assists, going back to defend, a good team player who also scores a lot of goals.

Mano is driving me krazy with his stupidity. Kaka on the bench is better than Ronaldinho full time... ARG!!! How can he be so dumb?!?! Kaka competes with the likes of Cronie, Dimaria, and Ozil for a spot- Ronaldinho practically puts himself on the starting lineup. RIDICULOUS. I know the Dunga method might not be preferred, but this is just the EXXXXTRREEEEEMMEE opposite. Rather than structure we have playoboys...

Ronaldinho's presence on the list really is all I needed to know. The rest of the list... well, this friendly will be useless for the Olympic team's preparation and that's a problem by itself, as we apparently haven't learned anything from previous Olympic flops.

So we're going to include token Olympic-aged players in the bench of a couple of friendlies, call that "preparation for the Olympics", and when the tournament comes we'll call a squad that never ever played together. I'm sure that bold Olympic project will work just as well as it worked the last five times we tried it! :proud:

I suppose being eliminated early from the Olympics will be useful preparation for the Ronaldinho-captained team that will be eliminated early from the World Cup. Mano is like the sensei of crushing failure.

How do you think I feel, Garrincha - I am going over there to watch it! Time to get Mano out of there (am I Brazilian now - you guys sack your tecnicos every week) and get Luxemburgo. We then end the flawed Ronaldinho Gaucho madness.

**** Luxa? :D
Well, Luxa would be an improvement over Mano. Even Joel Santana would be an improvement over Mano.

The flora in my intestines would also be an improvement over Mano, because unlike Mano my intestines know when it's time to push out the sh!t.

I hope at least our 2nd half team is the olympic team. But I guess the point is to have them all together in training...woohoo.
