Why isn't Brazilian Football Better?

  • Published on Oct 31, 2018
  • That the Brasileirão is a hotbed of excitement and prodigious talent, is surely one of the biggest myths in domestic football across the globe, and it is about to be debunked.

    and this is also the reason I don't see Brazil winning another World Cup for a long time. We're shipping our most promising talents to Europe way too young for them to develop our way. Then when World Cup comes around we have a squad of "european" players that will never beat europeans at their own game. the whole identity of each club having its number 10, the guy who lays the team on his back and gets the job done, and those guys coming together as a team in the seleçao... those days are over. Brazilian players never do anything unpredictable anymore. it's annoying to watch. We desperately need clubs to hold on to the young guys, at least til their mid 20s. The clubs will make a lot more money when they finally sell the player, plus all the money they'll make with season tickets and ticket sales, merchandise... and the player wont lose the Brazilian identity.

    It's ineptitude and 3rd world tribal mindset that keeps Brazil from being a top league. The talent is there in plenty but the mafia CBF are horrible in order and progress. They still play in state leagues. 5 five World Cup country can't pay as rewarding as the Chinese, Ukranian, Russian, Arabian leagues.. the player agents rule the league.

    Eurocentrism, they take every good player from us, Brazil is the third most sucessfull country in the Champions League when it comes to goals made, it's NOT our country's fault that Europe take everything from us, we still can make decent teams even with that money difference, back when there were no such thing, Brazil would beat the shit out of European teams at the Intercontinental Cup, Brazil is the most sucessfull country in Club World Cups together with Spain (Real Madrid 2018 reached us).

    You are misleading. The calendar are irrelevant compared to the fact that you are simply selling the any player that is above a certain level meaning the cream of brazilian football will practically never play in theri home country. The rest is simply the consequence of this. I explain you this because is exactly the same for Argentina. And any other poor country. You seem to be the only one believing that Brasileirao is so good....

    Brazilians didn’t perfect shit. They create exceptional talent, athletic and talented scorers. But Italians perfected it tactically, the Germans perfected leagues structurally and the English perfected the fandom. South Americans just give birth to crazy talent. Probably the top three best of all time are Brazilian and Argentinian( Messi has Italian parents)

    It seems like a large portion of this problem could be solved if Brazil (and the rest of the americas) adopted the European calendar football year. Then, no one would have to worry about players leaving midway through the season.

    I think it's funny when people say that un South American league's are only second class players and first class are in Europe and that's why their teams are "bad" but... they played first in South America and those who are called second class become later un first one but they are actually the same players -Vinicius wasn't an important player in Flamengo and not because of his age. It's about press and popularity. The real problems are the little times of work. Teams changes all the time but not only players but managers.
    About Brazil is curious they poor performance in south american competitions out of the '80 and '90. Their club área knowed for being wheepy, claim to the referees in excess, to fall under preasure and hard marking and being not inteligent for claim and play. It's popular the vision of Grêmio as the "most argentinian-uruguayan club from Brazil".
    It's interesting how an stranger see the regional leagues as "pointless". They in fact are not. Understand that Brazil is almost a little confederation. I see as pointless that a country with so many clubs center it's structure in the typical form of leagues. That kills competition, kills regional football (rivalries, clubs and development) and makes the big bigger and the small smallest.

    Unfortunately, it’s because Brazilians have poo-poo brains. Electing people with poo-poo brains - it’s why they continue to fall behind Europe. The country is, and I cannot stress this enough, poo-poo.

    Great Summary. Im Brazilian and this is absolutely true. We used to have one of the best leagues in the world in the 50' s all throughout the 90's . Up to when in the late 90's Marketing and Globalization of Football players got swallowed by only the major and more financially powerful clubs. Destroying talents and swooping them too early from their base. Weakening the league and the players progress , considering a lot of them return back after years of bench and loans, when they return, they are totally demotivated. Only a few make it really because o coach preferences. Its a lot of things that need to work out. HOWEVER, we are witnessing a u turn on professionalism on management level in the big clubs. This is reflecting on a better league in 2019.

    Every excuse made here applies to the Portuguese Primeira Liga. Benfica, Porto and Sporting lose half their squads and their managers every year to clubs in Europe with more financial power and better wages, and YET...the Portuguese league is regularly rated among the top 5 leagues in Europe (and consistently performs better than French clubs). Porto & Benfica regularly punch above their weight class.
    The true reason that the Brazil league is weak is they are focused entirely on individual skill and not the rest of the game. This is the reason Brazilian managers are in very low demand.

  • Russell ward

    The opening quote is a big part of the problem. They continue to live in the past and dont evolve. Clubs are playing very unimaginative style of football. Focused on athletes and winning cheap free kicks. Its not just that talented players leave. Its that clubs want them out of the league as soon as possible so there growth isnt stunted playing dark ages football. Firing the managers every 3 months doesnt help.

    The bigger issue at least for me is the Seleção now longer resembling their predecessors. This has happened for two reasons. Firstly the game has changed; it's much more physically demanding. Second, Brazil caters for European clubs. Changes in tactics have brought changes in player development. Kids need to be physically good as well as contribute to multiple phases of the game. Those that are technically sound though apathetic defensively or/and physically inferior don't have a place in today's game, where's in the past there were players of this description that were household names.

    CURINTIAS CABEÇUDA!!! LOL There are so much more to know, so many political, culture and social issues to solve and grow... Soccer isn't that important for us anymore.... Brazil gotta grow as a whole country and nation, on education, health, and respect among us.... after that our sports league will be naturally settled.
