Return from the dead

Hey guys, I'm back from the dead. Due to commitments with school I haven't had time to update. However, I'll be hard at work with a new format to the posts. That includes translating and posting articles from Globoesporte, Futebol Uol Esporte, and of course the club's official website. I think this would be the best way to keep others up to date on the workings of the club.

We have been lukewarm since the last time I posted and the Copa Libertadores is beyond us. Now all that is needed is for us to return to the Copa Sudamericana spots. Today we face SPFC at home in a derby with title ramifications. Let go out there and throw a spanner in O Tricolor's title hopes.

On another note the Santos Women's team has won the Female Copa Libertadores. They steamrolled their way to the title, scoring 47 goals in the process. In the final they beat Universidad Autonoma 9-0 to claim the crown. Congrats to the ladies!

In international duty Ganso and Brazil lost the U20 World Cup final on penalties to Ghana. Heartbreaking stuff. Yesterday Neymar scored a goal reminiscent of Pele's famous fake in the U17 World Cup. Brazil won 3x2 against Japan. The kid is going strong.

See you after the game today.


  1. I'm glad you are still alive. I'm in the middle of my doctoral comprehensive exams. The thing is killing me.

    Today is a mandatory win.

  2. Olá amigo santista!

    Gostaria de fazer parceria troca de links?
