Good job Rafa didn't try to imitate it otherwise the Japanese would have been suffering their second minor earthquake of the month.

You lost because of Lampard, he's not good enough, end of the fucking story!

If Xavi or Iniesta had played his no-look through ball round the corner for Torres (who unfortunately decided to kick it against his own stomach) in the first half, people would have been wanking over it long into the night.

That was embarrassing. Why is it that only ALL South Americans still do that? Haven't seen one of them since the last world cup.

Well, after a crap game against the African champions, we could play as well as we played in Libertadores. This title was the cherry on the cake for us.

I disagree with Puro about Lampard. The last European club game I watched was the CL final, so I don't know about the current form of the players, but I think he played well today and some of Chelsea best chances were created by him. Pure class.

Chelsea played well, but our keeper Cassio was excelent.

I'd like to mention the ridiculous attitude Santos had when they played against Barcelona last year. Brazilian media and Santos players thought they were as good as Barça, they believed in their own ridiculous hype, and played like shit when they finally found out they were nothing compared to the Barça team. I said here before that game that Santos was a mediocre team with a great craque: Neymar. The ease with wich Barça ran over Santos was awkward.

Corinthians, on the other hand, is a team without a craque, but full of grit, organized and moved by their incredible fanbase of almost 30 million supporters, that are always backing them up, even in their worst moments. I believe this victory came because the players were humble enough to recognize the superiority of the champions of a continent that has money enough to sign the best players in the world, including South American players, and gave their best to overcome this inequality.

Taking into account Corinthians opponents in libertadores and in the Club World Cup, Chelsea were the team that had more shots against Corinthians goal. In 16 games (14 in Libertadores and 2 in the CWC), Corinthians conceded only 4 goals and was unbeaten. Against Chelsea, our keeper Cássio was forced to work much more than in Libertadores games. Thank fuck he did alright and we could win this title.

The whole team were brilliant against Chelsea, but I advise you to take special note on Paulinho, a DM that will probably be a starter for Brazil in the next WC. This guy is pure class.



Cheers. <Ale>

You guys brought it back to Brazil and perhaps the differences in approaches between Santos and Corinthians will bring a little sense back to Brazil.

Congrats Mongrel Hawk ok

Chelsea did a barca (missing chances), rather than corinthians doing a chelsea I feel.

That's what I hope. I've always been against this samba-football, joga bonito crap. This is a myth. Brazil 1970 had a lot of serious work behind, the best and most sophisticated physical training team and a very good organisation. Talent alone isn't enough.


@110%

Brazil has not defined the keeper yet. Cássio may be a good choice.


Thank you all who congratulated me. Ale

@Mongrel Hawk: Why is Samba football and hard work mutually exclusive? Surely it requires hard work to maintain fitness and work in training to play to a high standard in that style too.

Congrats belatedly on Libertadores and WCC. What's next for Corinthians?

Semi-finals:
Bayern vs Guangzhou Evergrande
Atlético Mineiro vs Raja Casablanca

What is the importance that Bayern fans give to this trophy?
Does anyone on here thinks that Bayern may not win it?

We do not care too much...that's why Fifa sold only 11.000 tickets to our fans who will travel to Morocco only to support Atlético. Smile

Be aware of Ronaldinho. Sure, he is not the same player he was at Barcelona, but he is much better than you think. He has been playing at a very high level over the past two years.

He's a Brazil starter, he's pure class. The fact that he's not doing well in Tottenham doesn't mean much. He's a established player, not a promise.

Edit: If Tottenham get rid off him, they'll regret it sadly in the future. I'm sure.

No shame. Inter lost to Mazembe. Corinthians could very well have lost to Al Ahly last year (we were lucky). They are better than some of us think, we are worse than some of us think.

I'm curious to see if Raja Casablanca will stand a chance against Byern.

Thanks for your words. You're right when you say that we are worse than we think, but what happened is humiliating and you know that. We were so bad...

According to the press, there were 15,000 atleticanos in the stadium. Many of them were crying after the match. Dozens of friends of mine travelled to Morroco. And now they must stay there until Sunday. I feel so sorry for them...

I watched some Tottenham matches and Villas Boas played Paulinho out of his favourite position. He is a defensive midfielder who likes to go forward, he is not a playmaker. AVB played him more upfront and a pair of central midfielders (Dembélé + Sandro or Capoue). His passing is good, but not brilliant. That doesn't mean that he is not a very good footballer.

I agree. He's playing much more advanced for Tottenham than he used to do for Corinthians. He's a DM that goes forward as a surprise player. In England he's constantly up front.

I'm curious to see if Raja Casablanca will stand a chance against Byern.

Thanks for your words. You're right when you say that we are worse than we think, but what happened is humiliating and you know that. We were so bad...

According to the press, there were 15,000 atleticanos in the stadium. Many of them were crying after the match. Dozens of friends of mine travelled to Morroco. And now they must stay there until Sunday. I feel so sorry for them...

If I was in their situation, I guess I'd forget football existed and try to have some fun there (and never watch the 3rd place game).

And what I said about Corinthians-Al-Ahly is true: we almost lost that game, we were lucky. We beat Chelsea later because of a very strong winning mentality, cause Chelsea was certainly better technically.

I don't remember a single semis involving a Brazilian that wasn't a hard game. It was never a walk in the park.

No shame. Inter lost to Mazembe. Corinthians could very well have lost to Al Ahly last year (we were lucky). They are better than some of us think, we are worse than some of us think.

I know that the match against Al Ahly was hard. What I meant is that if you had lost that match it would have been humiliating. It would be even worse than what happened in the clash against Tolima in 2011.

My friends said that now there is a funeral atmosphere amongst our fans in Marrakech. I didn't care too much about this tournament until  a few days ago when I realized how much it is important for them. I'm feeling so bad for them...  

Yesterday I said that we were not organised defensively, but I've never seen such a mess. They had a lot of room to counter-attack during all the  match. We looked like an amateur side. If we had played like that against Bayern we would have been raped, but it would be better than losing against Raja.

The funny thing is that apparently our european friends on here, including Bayern fans, don't give a f... about this tournament while I will not lose any sleep if Brazil do not win the next World Cup.
