Still on top of his game at age 40
« on: February 02, 2006, 07:31:46 AM »
This is what yuh call fwd,

The man was among the best and I still find he coulda be in the last WC.

Last week, he was allowed to miss two training sessions so he could attend a pre-Carnival party.

The missed practice didn't seem to make a difference, and he scored a hat trick the next day in Vasco's 5-3 loss to Botafogo in the Rio de Janeiro state championship.

"I went to bed at 4 a.m. the night of the match and still scored three goals, that's how my body works,"

Romario is one of the greatest of all time. He have real bad mind too. I love him. But in truth, the entire team plays for Romario and he scores goals and really makes no ther contribution but lurk in the box and have younger, skilled players make chance after chance for him. Plus he takes a lot of penalties. I have watched quite a bit in the last few years and he is a shadow of his former self despite the statistics (understandable...the man is 40)....like I said...he is a Great...and at 40 he is exceeding all expectations....but he has special circumstances where the main aim is to feed Romario when the ball is anywhere near the area. The entire system is designed specifically around him. I feel that he could not play in any team where he is not the absolute focal point. He was not good enough 4 years ago and is no longer good enough to play in the national team

in the last world cup to do what ? If they lost, yuh could speculate that he may have helped, but they won.....so they didn't need him.......

He shoulda been in the '98 World Cup for sure.....not last world cup.

I think Ronaldo and Rivaldo does work better together than Romario and either.  :beermug:

I was watching a Milan Classic a few weeks ago.  It was the '94 (I think) final of the EUFA Cup (now Champions League) and the man looked good for Barca.  His vision was immaculate, touch spot on and he was quick.  He had a good stint at Barca.
