I can't believe you forgot his magnificient penalty against Holland in WC98 semi-finals...Ze da Fiel said:Have they finished their cycle for Brazil??
If yes.... i say thank you Rivaldo for everything... the bad and good moments..... and Emerson thank you for nothing... a waste of space I can't recallany good moment of this so called "footballer"in the NT
Yeah, really sad too. I knew after the World Cup he wasn't going to be the same player he used to be even though he had a very good tournament. Rivaldo at his best was very, very scary like during the Valencia game when he scored a hat-trick by scoring the "chilena" and taking los Blaugranas to the Champions League.Ivan Helguera said:rivaldo, i miss you so much. rivaldo's golden age finally ends?! :broken:
Whatever one will say about him playing for Brazil this is BS, Dacourt is class, Emerson is world class, go take a look at his goal against Villareal.Patrick said:I'm sorry dude, but he's not even the best DM on your own team.
First, Cafu was NOT "able to always play well". He had several awful performances with the NT, delivering bad crosses by the dozens and leaving spaces in defense. In one such bad performance he was booed by ninety thousand people in the Maracana, in the 1998 Brasil x Argentina. But despite the fans' whining, Zagallo kept him in the team until he proved his worth. Let's not pretend that Cafu always did well when that's manifestly not true. However, the general predisposition against Cafu made the critics hit him much harder after a bad game than they did with fan-favorites like Rivaldo and Alex, whose irregular performances were always forgiven much more easily.JCamilo said:I just like to point out that Cafu was able to always play well, Dunga is over rated for his job in some way to make up for the under rated relation made with him before 94 and Emerson relations have nothing to do with them, He is just unable to justify his presence in national team over and over...
There is another possibility that must not be overlooked. Maybe Roma's playing system suits Emerson much better than the Brazil one.romafan53 said:I havent seen him that much for Brazil but my mind is just boggled as to how hes so good for us and so bad for you. I tell ya, you guys are missing out on a special player here, either that or you dont know what your talking about
Are you sure that was not just gossip? Because since Abramovich bought Chelsea, Chelsea has been reported to want to sign at least one million players...lucifuga said:Why did Chelsea offer Roma last summer 20-30 millions for him then?:star:
He never had a really bad tournament. Single games, yes because this anyone can have.First, Cafu was NOT "able to always play well".
Rivaldo is hardly a fan favorite. If you say he is attacked way to often by the media, yes, he was. They are wrong.However, the general predisposition against Cafu made the critics hit him much harder after a bad game than they did with fan-favorites like Rivaldo and Alex,
Dunga is way over rated. His leadership capacities are blow out of proportion, people turned him in list of best brazilian players ever, and even his defense, good was inferior for example than Mauro Silva's but Mauro never got his status.Second, Dunga was overrated? He was the best passer in our team during the 1994 WC, according to the official WC statistics.
He was a fine leader in the team of leader such Jorginho, Rai, Romario, Branco and other experient players. In 98 he did something that a good leader would never do (the Head in Bebeto), he is not an awesome leader, just a fine one. But the press created all the myth of leader all over again in our time of loss and exagerated it when found one leader.He was the leader we lacked since the 80s, and was also selected for the World Cup's best eleven in that year...
Because when is rated among the best middlefields we ever had, or the always impressive leader they are over rating him.and AGAIN we reached the WC final, with Dunga playing well during the whole tournament. How was Dunga "overrated"?
Roma director Baldini even confirm thisOAnimal said:Are you sure that was not just gossip? Because since Abramovich bought Chelsea, Chelsea has been reported to want to sign at least one million players...
That could be the problem indeed. When Brazil played a 3-4-3 (during the last WC), Emerson was coupled with Gilberto Silva in the centre and they didn't have to help on the wings (like Kleberson in the current system). In Roma Emerson also has a partner in the centre, Dacourt, who helps him a lot. So basically, if Brazil would switch back to their 3-4-3, the whole team would benefit from it; exception: Ze Roberto, who would have to go on the bench.OAnimal said:There is another possibility that must not be overlooked.
