sure, my entire argument is based on my own ignorance, but if menezes had been doing a good job i'd know all about brazil.

What didn't come across on TV during the Copa América, but did when one saw them in the flesh, is that almost their entire team are absolutely enormous. Cantagalo will know better than me, but I suspect the average Brazilian wants them to make sure they win, not to play pretty football. As it stands, of course, they're not going to do either. If you want pretty football from a team in yellow at Brazil 2014, you should probably be watching Colombia.
