HOT NEWS: Emerson signed for Santos

Good evening, friends. I'm gonna leave for my blog mates to comment on our terrible match today. I just wanted to bring you the news. They were officially announced a few minutes ago at the Santos Official twitter and the midfielder should arrive at Vila Belmiro this week. His last team was Milan, having played for Real Madrid, Juventus, Roma, and others before.

Let's hope the man can still kick ass.


  1. The answer from a Milan fan after reading Emerson signed for Santos:

    "Let's hope the man can still kick ass."

    No he can't. He barely played for us in the two seasons he was with us. A quick look at wiki tells us that he had 20 appearances in the first season and only 7 in the second season. And I guarantee that most of those appearances were after the 80th minute. He moved at a glacial pace and was routinely slighted by milan fans. (well by me anyway )

    He lost his ability that he had at Roma and Juve and maybe to some extent at Madrid. He was basically a giant clumsy oaf who could no longer win the ball without committing foul after foul after foul.

    His contract got rescinded by mutual consent in April and it was the only bright spot we had all season last year. Which of course is not saying much since last season was a pretty shi*ty one.

    He makes patrick viera look like he is aging gracefully.

  2. The way I see it is like this:
    I do not expect the guy playing the same way he did for the Brazilian squad, Juventos or Roma. Times can change a man and even though he is not the player he once was, he still can bring value to Santos. His experience, respect and confidence can make the rest of the team improved, united and, eventually, play better. If it happens I will see it as a great addition to our team.
    Also, I can see Him playing better than at least 60% of our started team. We'll see.

  3. By the way, in this picture Emerson looks just like Sylvester Stallone at the end of every Rocky movie! LOL
