    Stout fellow. Very strong on the ball, good skill. Poor man's Rooney. Overpriced.

    Okay thanks. I found some good Hulk goal porn. He seems to have a cannon for a leg.

    U.S. - Brazil was entertaining to watch last night: solid turnout too. It would have been nice to see better defense from the U.S. (Brazil's wasn't much better), but the U.S. played very well for stretches. A more fair scoreline would've been about 5-2 or 5-3. Herculez Gomez played an excellent match, and I think Michael Bradley did pretty well in midfield. Canada on Sunday before WC qualifying, so hopefully they can get back on track.

    USA 1 - Brazil 4

    Score didn't really reflect the run of play (at least in highlights I saw..). USA had a nice amount of chances, the Brazilian goalie was on top form though (so was the crossbar!!)

    Also, it looked like there was something wrong with the pitch... the ball didn't bounce properly!!

    USA/Brazil was fun to watch. I'm pleased with Klinsmann's push to get us into proper competition with elite sides rather than just muddling around in the CONCACAAF over and over. I only saw the first half and was pleased at 2-1 down (because Oneywu's handball was sketchy at best). Sad that the USA collapsed later on.

    Neymar and Hulk were a good tandem on the wings. Marcelo looked like he was having a great game too (FTW!). Brazil's side was Menzes' fine-tuning for the Olympic cycle. Who is Oscar (Brazil's 10?) Kid had some cheap shots off the ball on US defenders - but it never ceases to amaze me that a Brazil side full of "no-names" or local players can still impress.

    Think Hulk is better than a poorman's Roo (especially at 150mil). Think he's faster and willing to use more skill. Also think he's built more solidly - ie less chub more muscle.

    Ribery is a not a Beur ...

    He is from Boulogne and is as beauf as you can...

    He converted to Islam to marry his wife and went to see prostitutes...

    Le Pen will prefer losing every sport competitions and kicking them out...

    By the way , Malouda is from La Reunion ...

    Do not tell him he is not French.

    Brendan Rodgers is the new Liverpool manager. Leaving Swansea.

    Great manager

    Re Hulk, come on boys, nobody here is serious about his buyout clause. Nobody here would take him over Rooney either, especially after his dashing hair transplant.
