Don't sleep on Ganso at all. He real bad.

..which is kind of a blanket statement for most young up and coming Brazilians, but I wonder where most people have gotten dat assessment from, seeing as he still playin in Brazil (which most people dont watch) and was injured for most of last season anyway and a good chunk of this one.

not sayin he eh good, but i've only seen him playing a few times...

   Word of mouth is a helluva thing.  I knew who Russell Latapy was I feared how good he was before I ever saw him play or played against him.


Not because a man ears long and he teet' long dat it make him a Jackass!

I like his control, composure, vision and passing. Well advanced for a player that age .

well he is 21, same as Pato, so he eh all dat young...but anyway, I find he looks good too, just need 2 see him a few more times to draw a proper conclusion (and I doubt I am the only one).

You see ESPN? That is how you analyze a game at half time.

They doing everyone a disservice. The u17 WC even worse, them does talk about champions league and the transfer market before they tell you why the score in the game is 2-0.

I think during the game, if you going to have a colour commentator, they should be able to provide some insight, not tell me what xyz should have done, or what you would do. Efan Ekoku does this perfectly. 1/2 time, I expect more in-depth analysis, this is where you should hear about what working and not working, and what should be done to change it.

The best thing they did for the last World Cup was rent some foreign talent like Martinez, Guillet, Andy Gray ect. People who wasn't into talking shit or talking for talkin sakes. yeah we still dealt with the ex US players but al least it wasnt a steady diet of them and their shit. The only American commentator who can hold his own is Christopher Sullivan on FSC.

Any time Brasil have two defensive midfileders like Ramires and Lucas in their mildfield you know they will be short on creativity in that area of the field. I don't think they need two of the same on the field.

I don't think it's an American thing, so much as an ESPN thing. They do well in the loud, manic, sportscenter type shows and the in-depth 30 for 30 type shows, but they seem to have trouble with live sports.

The NBA coverage on ESPN is soporific at times and the NFL works because Tirico keeps it simple and Jaws provides real insight.

All the other live sports coverage tends to be either overwrought or boring

So much so he calls it "football" more often than not, more guys should take a leaf out of his book

Ganso was poor in this game, lucus brought nothing. In the next game Sandro and Elano should start.
