    Atletico and Cruzeiro are probably a class above everyone else in the Minas state, so to finish within six points of them is a great effort. Let's hope your squad overhaul pays off for the league season.

    S1 Brazilian Cup Fourth Round Second Leg





    S1 L2 Brazilian Cup 4th Round v Mineiro



    A creditable 2-2 draw with late consolation goal I switched to 3-5-2 when chasing the game and Juisse scored when he was sprung from the bench to score his first goal for the Boa. (using the crystal wings tactic from this thread: http://champman0102.co.uk/showthread.php?t=8361 I played Juisse in the role just off the main striker.

















    Press Conference






    Press: Your out of the cup how do you feel?

    Me: Disappointed with the overall result but I have to be proud of my players they gave a good account of themselves overall. I hope we can build on this performance when we play games in the Brazilian first division.

    More squad overhaul before the league season starts

    Back up Goalkeeper


    I decided to sign another goalkeeper - Artur Moraes aged 35 on a free transfer from Osmanlispor.

    Artur Moraes (GK)





    Because when Gomes goes back to Watford in December I will need a decent backup stopper. More importantly he accepts the role as backup player and is a Brazilian national


    Artur has played for a lot of big clubs Roma and Benfica among them.




    Defensive Playmaker


    I also signed a player known as Matuzalém or simply “the professor” because of his passing creativity and technique.


    Matuzalém (DMC) "The prof"




    He is a much-travelled player having made his name in Italy playing for Lazio and Napoli among others. He has also played in Spain with Zaragoza and even had a spell with Shaktar Donetsk in the Ukraine.

    I decided to rescue this former Brazilian u20 international from playing with Miami FC in the USA, and take him “home” to the Boa in Brazil. He has won silverware on his travels: the Ukrainian Premier League back to back with Shaktar and the Coppa Itallia with Lazio.
    In his early career in Brazil he won two Campeonato do Nordeste (regional titles) with Vitoria. He was also a member of the Brazilian 1997 u-17 World Cup winning team.

    His best position is (DMC) although given his skill levels he can function as an orthodox midfielder and maybe even a creative centre back in a “three”.





    Creative playmaker


    Finally got my creative play-maker to play behind the striker.
    Cost 350k aged 23 also a free kick expert predominately right footed

    João Pedro Santos (FC)





    Joao Pedro attributes



    [CENTER]


    Versatile Veteran defender


    I also needed a Brazilian defender who could play as a wing back if needs be as cover.

    Neto who I signed on a Bosman free was the nearest I found to those criteria as strictly speaking his best positions are defender or midfielder.


    Darcy Dolce Neto - "Neto" (D\MR)






    Total spending of 1.2m for the season is nosebleed territory for the Boa.
    Fortunately a number of players had been sold earlier to balance the books.




    Players out





    But there was one player who's sale has the potential to change the future of the club.



    Dutra's sale


    Sold Dutra for 2.9m over 6months!!!





    There is now 925k in transfer funds!!!

    First game of the Brazilian league proper



    S1 Match 1 Brazilian NAT DIV1 Sport Recife (a)






















    I went with a 4-2-3-1 defensive formation from the start but when I went behind and the opposition were dominating I had to change something so I changed tactics to 3-5-2 crystal wings in the second half
    (crystal wings tactic from this thread: http://champman0102.co.uk/showthread.php?t=8361 )






    4-2-3-1 line up









    Press Conference







    Press: There was not many shots on goal for the boa in this game.



    Me: On the plus side there was only 2 goals conceded and Marques chipped in with a goal, but I am not happy with the low amount of shots on goal we had in the game.

    Another Hard Luck Story





    S1 BN1 Match 2 figueirense (h)






    Another hard luck 2-1 defeat.









    I started with the 3-5-2 Crystal Wings formation.






    I finished with a 3-4-3 attacking formation in search of the winning goal







    Worse still the player who scored two goals Eilias was one who I tried to sign but I was not able to afford!




    Press Conference









    Press: Second defeat in a row for the Boa, your reaction?


    Me: It's going to be a long hard season!! But myself the staff and players will keep working hard to turn things around. With players like Marques we always have a chance.



    Marques

    Boa change tactics yet again






    I decided to continue my tinkerman reputation and change tactics yet again this time a
    4-3-3 formation


    S1 BN1 Match 3 Sao Paulo (a)


    Line out v Sao Paulo (a) 4-3-3



    I was also unafraid to play the youth signings

    Portela (DR) started, while Aldison (AMFL) and Antonio (AMRL) were used from the bench.








    Ederson Portela (DR)












    Adilson (AM/FRLC)














    Antonio (AMRL)














    And another delighted hopeful Marcos Dias (FRLC) also made his league debut for the Boa from the bench.






    Marcos Dias (FRLC)

















    I got a lot of shots on goal but this was skewed by Sao Paulo getting a man sent off at 32 mins.

    Both boa goals came after this sending off.


















    Press Conference






    Press: Happy with the performance?


    Me: Yes. We got the three points the youngsters really showed that they have a future at this great club.


    Press: Do believe in bringing through young players into the squad?


    Me: Absolutely, I am a great believer that if you are good enough you are old enough.




    Me: I am also delighted that João Pedro got off the mark for the Boa with his first goal.




    Me: Although at the age of 23 he could be classed as a veteran compared to the younger players at the club! I am expecting him to do great things for the club and the money spent on him will prove a bargain in time.

    Boa Drama




    S1 BND1 Match 4 Cricuma (h)




    Criciuma raced into a 3-0 lead a nightmare performance from keeper Prieto who got a 4 rating at half time. The sun was in his eyes again apparently.....


    Prieto









    Young Portela (DR) was also poor and received a 5 rating at half time.






    Ederson Portela (DR)















    I subbed both under-whelming players and switched to a 3-4-3 formation.

    Then there was the comeback with goals from Joao Pedro (FC), Davi (AMLC) and the ever consistent Marques (FC) , all within a 15 minute period!
    3-3 game on!

    The Boa were attacking like mad the winning goal looked likely, time was running out.

    Then disaster struck substitute goalkeeper Artur Morares got injured in the 90th minute.



    Artur Morares






    I had to put veteran defender (and former Brazil captain) Lucio in goal at the end of the game.


    It was nailing biting stuff....





    Could the Boa hold out for the draw?



    Final result v Criciuma (a)







    Press Conference








    Press: What are your comments on that amazing game?


    Me: I am pleased that 16 year old (FLC) Slivio de Abreau made his debut for the Boa!

    New youth signing cover at left back





    I felt that another left back was needed just in case there was any injuries to the veteran Edu Silva at left back and I wished to play 4 at the back.

    Claudio Luiz Dutra – will be known as Claudio Luiz (no relation to the Dutra that was sold to enable the squad overhaul as far as I know)


    Claudio Luiz (DL)

    Change of tactics once more (slightly)

    In consultation with my Assistant Manager Xavi


















    I have changed to a 4-3-3 short Christmas tree formation.





    4-3-3 Christmas tree line up




    In order to try and get some consistency I have decided to play less attacking and either go defensive counter or normal counter as Marques is ideally suited for counter attack.

    I also have decided to tighten up the midfield area by starting three DMC’s and moving Davi into a more attacking position behind the striker.

    I would like to play youngster Antonio (AMLR) but he lacks stamina to be a regular starter I think he is more suited to an impact role with his dribbling skills which are now 20.

    Under the tree at Boa





    S1 1BN Match 6 Brazil de Pelotas (h)






    Played the 4-3-3 Christmas tree formation, except on this occasion I played it as defensive counter.






    Result






    On loan Cassiano scored on his debut. (played in one of the two deep roles behind the striker – gave him free role)



    Cassiano





    Joao Pedro was subbed for Cassiano who was poor on the day.

    I am always reluctant to take Joao Pedro off as he is a top notch free kick specialist only slighly right footed.


    Joao Pedro








    Joao Pedro attributes







    Press Conference







    Press: Your team performed well, is this because of the new formation?

    Me: I would not solely put it down to the new formation. I signed a lot of new players and they take time to gel no matter how talented they are.

    Londrina's Calling




    S1 BN1 match 7 londrina (a)


    The Boa went behind 1-0 then had to chase the game

    I switched to 3-4-3 when it was desperation stakes and we needed a goal




    Londrina had few shots, but were very clinical. Boa were the opposite.






    Despite another goal from Marques (FC)


    Marques




    The performance of some of his teammates let the side down.

    Both Neto (D/MR) and Joao Pedro (FC) were poor. The latter's morale has also dropped to very low so a stint in the reserves is the medicine for JP.


    Neto






    Joao Pedro





    Thumbs down today....



    Press Conference





    Press: Why did the Boa miss many chances today?

    Me: The players must believe in themselves more and let thier ability shine. This makes all the difference in pressure situations in games. Basically, be more like Marques who gives his all for the club.



    Me: But it is unfair that one player should share this burden all of the time. It is time that other players in the squad improve thier consistency and performances.

    Chambers happy despite the referee...






    S1 ND1 match 8 Botafogo (h)

    I was forunate here to get a 1-0 win because of a card happy ref.
    Botafogo went a man down from then on there was only going to be one winner eventually




    The scorer was a surprising one it was not Marques but on loan Luke Chambers who scored his first goal for the club from the bench. (He came on for Lucio who was on a yellow)


    Luke Chambers








    Press Conference











    Press: How would you rate the performance of the referee today? The Botafogo manager was not happy with him.

    Me: I did not get a clear view of the incident that lead to the red card so I cannot comment on it. But I did see Luke Chambers bag his first goal for Boa. Fair play to the lad.

    Sunshine footballers




    S1 ND match 9 Bahia (a)


    Went 1-0 up but lost 2-1






    The weather did not suit my style of play it was wet so I had to switch to direct style


    Press Conference








    Press: Can you explain this defeat?


    Me: Yes, the players must learn how to kill a game when they are in front, and they must be more adaptable to the weather conditions.

    Boa on the defensive




    S1 ND1 Match 10 Flamengo (h)


    Due to the strength of the opposition I switched to a more defensive tactic







    I started win a defensive counter tactic 4-3-2-1 (with three deep players)

    Focusing on my players pace dribbling skills.


    S1 4-3dp2-1 short counter def








    It definitely restricted the opponents chances and kept the game tight.






    Marques to the rescue 1-1 draw


    Marques







    Press Conference






    Press: Was a draw a fair result?

    Me: Yes, I think it was. I am pleased the way my players implemented the game plan, and stifled such a strong team as Flamengo. It proves that this Boa team is a match for any team in this division on thier day.

    As corujas smash and grab





    S1 ND1 Match 11 America MG (a)

    I kept the same formation as the previous game 4-3dp-2-1 it seems to really suit the players. The lads managed a 1-3 smash and grab win against America MG.






    The Key to the tactic seems to be to play defensive and counter and pay the high line up the pitch.



    Press Conference









    Press: Another win for the Boa what do you put this form down to?



    Me: The players are gelling as a team and they are adapting well to my new tactics. The fortunes of the Boa seem to on the up!


    Press: What are these new tactics?


    Me: A magic winning formula! Marques and Antonio!


    Marques








    Antonio (AMRL)

    Boa Esporte Scout Cobalsky Correa - the interview

    The Cobalsky Correa alleged Incident- the fallout





    Vivi and Cobalsky






    Further Media Reports:

    Cobalsky Correa, a friend of Vivi from the samba school Salgueiro a percussionist and scout with Boa Esporte, In an interview with the newspaper Extra, Cobalsky stated discomfort with the situation




    “My contact with Viviane is because of samba school and I was appoint as scout at Boa Esporte by Niguel Fallon manager of Boa, because I told Vivi I was very brilliant at Championship Manager 01/02” Correa stated.


    Vivi at Salgueiro Samba School




    Correa went on to say "I am say it was no me, and I have to prove it was no me. That day I was return from the Salgueiro with friends, inside a van." The controversy is not good for the career of Viviane Araújo well known tv personality. According to the blog Fabíola Reipert, she would have lost some work after early rumours of the video. Correa declared that his lawyer will resort to justice to unlink the video. to clear their name.”
