Well, Corinthians still isn't as good as Bianchi's Boca (far from it). They need more reinforcements, Tevez can't win games by himself.

But overall Carlitos has done quite well so far, IMO. :)

Tite. Good manager. He won the Brazilian Cup with Gremio a few years ago.

Robinho, O Rei?
The most anticipated matchup of the Paulista tournament ended up being a forum for Robinho to flex his muscles in front of the entire soccer world. The Brazilian phenomenon outclassed, outplayed, and outscored his Argentine counterpart in a matchup of the two most exciting and talented young forwards in all of South America. So much so, that both Argentine and Brazilian media outlets called this game Tevez vs. Robinho. It was a matchup that transcended two teams. It became a matchup between two individuals, and the results were made known by the Brazilian media.

Robinho simply played one of the best games of his career on Sunday, as Santos demolished their Paulista nemesis Corinthians. It was one of the most satisfying victories for the Peixe over their rivals, as the Brazilian striker scored on two occasions and assisted on another. Meanwhile Corinthians’ most prized acquisition, Carlos Tevez, touched the ball a few times and could do very little against a team that was inspired to win. The cover of The Lance mentioned how “Robinho did the samba around the Corinthian defense, while Tevez suffered with Santos. Round four goes to Robinho.

One thing that must be noticed is that this was the seventh week of the Paulista tournament, not the final of the Copa Libertadores or an Argentina- Brazil matchup. If you were to add up these, the boy from Fuerte Apache in Buenos Aires would have a commanding 3-1 lead. I refuse to take that route because the game had other protagonists, and it would denigrate the entire team effort put forth by the santistas.

With the way this game transpired, this would be one of the ideal storylines that could develop throughout the duration of the Brazilian tournaments the rest of the year.
