Dunga named coach of Brazil?

Remember this advocate of Jogo Bonito? Dunga AKA Dopey, the Piltdown Sam of Brazil, more likely to usher in a regime of defensive cloggers of his ilk. For me, the moment he won the World Cup was a tragedy. Once they achieved success with his style of play, they've since always played with two defensive midfielders, the excruciatingly negative Emerson and some other guy, Ze Roberto, Gilberto Silva. OK when it's a tasty side like the Argies. But against the likes of Japan, Australia, and Croatia? Eh! This is no doubt a reaction to Brazil's limp showing in the World Cup, but do they really need a more defensive outlook? They conceded exactly 3 goals in 5 matches. What they might want to consider is someone who can bring back the days of '82 when you and they knew they could score at will. Dunga would only get my vote for the job ahead of a combination of that half embalmed old Nazi Havelange and his fat bandit son-in-law Texiera. I'd sooner take Socrates even if one of his conditions of taking the job was being allowed to build a bonfire on the sideline to keep his endless cigs going. Hell, I'd take Pele ahead of Dunga even if El Rei insisted on being player manager and guaranteed a number 10 shirt emblazoned with an advertisement for Cialis! Dunga? Hell, no!


  • Cialis Dunga - ouch!
    I always liked Dunga - Brazil was all flair all the time but had to have someone like a Roy Keane/Makelele/Vieira to get the ball and he was it - trouble is now they are all Dunga's with one Ronaldinho!

  • Dunga is the guy you want watching your back in an alley, just like Keano and Make and Patty V. I think he will do wonders for Brazil: I doubt they will lose in the next four years.

  • Ah, you lot can't be that cynical, can you? Brazil is the team that you want to go balls-out to score goals. You want 4-2 scorelines because they couldn't give a care to defend. You want a team that know's that all that's needed is one more samba run through a defense than their opponents can manage.

    You don't want them to feed Fat Ron in the first 6 minutes and then hang on for the next 84.

    Brazilian flair is what it's all about. Dunga? Hell, no!

  • 1970 can give me back my hairline first. THEN we can talk about getting the attitude back.
