Soccer isn't doing so well? Could have fooled me with the amount of great players coming back to Brazil. 5 years ago Neymar and Ganso would have left Brazil,they stay.

The national team isnt doing well. Players like Ronaldo, Ronaldhino, Roberto Carlos, Kaka, Dida, Cafu etc. were scouted so extensivley by the greatest teams in the world that they couldnt turn down the offers. Now someone like Neymar plays for maybe Tottenham or something.

I watched a game of soccer once. Didn't care for it. MMA is much better.

It's alright I guess. Pretty boring a lot.

The way I see it, if someone isnt getting punched in the face then it's not my kind of sport.

Say what you like but Tottenham are a great team, Neymar would go to Chelsea over Tottenham if he were going to the UK though.

Lucas still plays in Brazil aswell.

Brazil have some amazing players, Thiago Silva, Dani Alves, Hulk and Alexandre Pato. They also have some awesome players coming up, like Lucas, Oscar, Marcelo, Dede, Neymar and Ganso.

EDIT: Paris St. Germain won the bidding war against Man Utd at a whopping 45 million pounds for Lucas, he goes there beginning of next year.

What point is he missing exactly? You claimed that every sport enthusiast claims that their sport will be the most popular sport in the world.

Like Soojookoo, I haven't ever heard a single damn person try to claim that their sport is going to over take football in terms of popularity.

So like him, I'm also inclined to believe you're talking rubbish.

Thinking your sport is better than football is one thing (and that's fine) thinking it's going to become more popular is just ridiculous.
