Nah, the Brazilians passion for football have been dying out for a long time now. And I mean several decades. The old timers (the people who saw the NT at its glory days in the 50’s and 70’s) were still around for 94’. Back then supporting the NT was almost like a religion. By the 00’s the country was nowhere near producing talent of the caliber they were used to and people gradually lost interest.
What happened in 2014 was just the nail in the coffin.
Couldnt agree more. The peak in terms of quality was probably the 60s. Too many world class players distributed around the clubs. Fan Passion has clearly been fading and nowadays Id say only a fraction of the people cares about football in general. You will find more passion in England or Argentina, for example
Mr Reliable. Lol who would have thought. Reborn under Pirlo. And my favourite aspect of him as a player, is his leadership qualities. Barking orders, trying to organise the defence, it’s clear he feels like an important member of the squad, and he clearly is now.
