RIVALDO_PILOTA_D_OR.v1349446271.jpg
Rivaldo used social networks to reveal that “with tears in my eyes I’d like to give thanks to God, my family and for all the support I have received in 24 years as a player. Today I’m announcing to my fans around the world that my history as a player has reached its end.” The now former striker is unquestionably one of the greatest players ever to play for Barça. He excelled here for five years between 1997 and 2002. Rivaldo (Recife, Brazil, 1972) arrived from Deportivo la Coruña for the 1997/98 season, as a direct replacement for his compatriot Ronaldo. Tall and strong, he did so brilliantly with the kind of skill rarely seen before, a tremendous left foot, exquisite dribbling ability, a powerful shot and an outstanding capacity to score from set pieces. Best in the world 1999 He wasn’t a natural centre forward, but tended instead to play out wide or just behind the attack, but still managed to score an astonishing amount of goals for FC Barcelona: 136 in 253 appearances. He was always a discrete person who preferred to so his talking on the pitch, and was rewarded with the Ballon d’Or in 1999. Some of the fondest memories of his time at FCB include a famous hat-trick at the San Siro, a brace (with another goal inexplicably disallowed) at the Bernabéu in 2000/01, and most of all his spectacular last-minute overhead kick against Valencia to ensure qualification for the following season’s Champions League. At Barcelona, Rivaldo won two leagues, one cup and one European Supercup. After winning the 2002 World Cup with Brazil, Rivaldo left Barça to spend two seasons at AC Milan. Since then, he also played for clubs in Brazil, Greece, Uzbekistan and Angola. He is currently president of Brazilian Serie C club Mogi Mirim, where is son Rivaldinho is among the playing squad.

Most managers say they wanna get shit done before the World Cup. Doesn't seem to happen that way most of the time though as the parent clubs seem to prefer to gamble on the player having a good tourny a forcing the price up.
They're the closest thing to a footy manager save I've ever seen. They're becoming a bit of a joke. Each year it's a load of comings and goings both in terms of players and staff. Millions and millions spent and then after a couple years, when they're not winning everything, they flog them all and spend another feck load of cash on a brand new squad. This season once again started with so much optimism. Granted, Bale had gone but they spent all they received from that deal (and then some) on another bunch of shiny new foreign players and AVB had finished his settling in period and Spurs were ready to finally challenge for the league title..... 7 months down the line and their season has completely unravelled, once more. It must be something in the water at these North London clubs eh? They've seemingly written themselves out of challenging for 4th and can forget about any UEFA Cup glory after a humbling at home to Benfica. They've thrust a manager into the limelight who has clearly (and predictably) found the leap to Premiership management too large and, what's more, they seem dead set on appointing the daddy of all short term managers in the Summer (van Gaal) when what they really need is a sense of stability and security. Will they ever break this constant and ridiculous cycle? I suspect not with Levy in charge...
Just caught the end of the Spurs game and was surprised at how well Jermaine Jenas came across. Seems like a natural. So, on the back of that I've been inspired to create this thread for all things pundit related. Post away.
