    Who doesn’t enjoy the sight of a Brazilian?

    „I believe in socialism because it seems more humanitarian, rather than every man for himself and 'I'm alright jack' and all those arsehole businessmen with all the loot. I made up my mind from viewing society from that angle. That's where I'm from and there's where I've made my decisions from. That's why I believe in socialism“

    More often than not that’s been the case.
    It’s times like this, and the fact their outfield players are not what I’d call the best they’ve had that we should ask has there been a change in their attitude to modern football?. Or is it just a generational coincidence?.

    Sometimes I wish we had the scouts & forethought to sign the players before they get to 'well known' pricey stage.

    Signing players from Argentina and Brazil before they get to to Europe could be rewarding.

    Most cases they wouldn't get work permits in this country though, this lad has dual Italian citizenship which is why he's got one but it's a limited pool and probably not worth the expenditure as we are at the moment.

    The Brazilian and Argentinian markets are dominated by scouting teams working for mega clubs or Portugueuse clubs. It is simply impossible to find a young talent there that nobody else has spotted. We've tried, in both countries, with poor results. Even if you find an interesting case, who owns the rights of the player is usually a nightmare: there are players co-owned by an army of different agents, their mom, their uncle and a couple of teams.

    A more interesting bet is South American players who come to Europe and do not impress on their first year, which is usually the case; there, one needs a good scouter who will spot potential underneath failure.

    South American market in general is full of a lot of overhyping and shady deals.

    There are even clubs that hoard players, don't even play games and send players to other clubs on co-ownership deals.

    It's a rewarding market but you have to know your onions there because you will be ripped off. Udinese/Watford have done very well out of it, but that's from decades of scouting and knowledge and they literally have brought hundreds of players over and only a few have been succesfull. Clubs are finding out it's cheaper to actually own a club out there than it is actually scouting alone, Man City & Red Bull have recently got new teams in South America.
