It’s time for Roberto Martinez and Everton to forget about this recently concluded season

This season which concluded a few days ago was a horrific one for a number of clubs but there is one club that manages to stand out and not in a good way and its’ Everton.

Roberto Martinez during his first season in charge of Everton managed to push his team to the 5th spot with a total of 72 points secured in the previous campaign.

Going from the 5th spot to the 11th position is a huge blow for any club but for Everton they seem to have taken a bigger hit as the players themselves didn’t even appear to be interested in playing their last match of the season which was against Tottenham Hotspur and ended in a 1-0 defeat for Roberto Martinez and his team.

Everton’s match against Tottenham Hotspur was played on May 24 at Goodison Park and it just didn’t seem like the players of Roberto Martinez were inspired to claim a victory as the visiting team controlled the pitch from start till end while the hosts just allowed them on doing it without much opposition as Tottenham Hotspur won the game with a scoreboard of 1-0.

This game and result is the way that Everton has been playing for a large portion of the season with only a few bursts of positive results and performances on certain occasions but the majority of them were disappointing.

The players, the supporters and everyone that is involved in one way or another with Everton is well aware of just how frustrating this season was and Roberto Martinez announced that a number of changes will be done in order to not go through another underwhelming season. Read more »

Hulk is looking to make an impression on his national manager Dunga

Hulk is looking to make an impression on his national manager Dunga with a good show in the games versus the Costa Rican and the American team for which he has been included in the squad.

It’s the first time in his career that Hulk will be playing under Dunga.

Hulk was in Brazil’s World Cup squad too last year and although he was not at his best in the tournament as many of his teammates, he had managed to retain his place in the first squad that Dunga announced after taking charge.

But, he had to pull out from that squad due to injury and was being overlooked after that.

He has received the call up again and this time around, he is keen to establish himself.

Post a gruelling practice session last evening, the 29-year old was quoted as saying, “You have to grab your opportunities especially when you are from a country like Brazil where so many wonderful talents keep popping up.”

“I believe this is my time and I need to make sure I make the most of it and show what I have got to offer.” Read more »

Brazilian football has provided yet another export to the European league

Brazilian football has provided yet another export to the European league after teenager Nathan Allan de Souzahas, or simply Nathan, has joined Chelsea from Atletico Paranaense.

It has been reported that a number of top European clubs like Barcelona and Manchester City were also interested in signing the 19-year-old. However, it is the Premier League champions who have managed to win the race for the highly rated youngster. Nathan has not yet proved himself at the top level, but it has not prevented Atletico Paranaense from claiming a £ 4.5 million transfer fee for the youngster.

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho claimed that they then will not be joining up with the Chelsea team immediately next season. Instead, he will be sent out on a couple of loans spells in order to help his improvement. Only a few players have managed to establish themselves in the Chelsea team after moving on loan, but the examples set by the likes of Courtois will be a source of huge inspiration for Nathan. He said that it was a huge delight to join a big club like Chelsea, who already have a number of Brazilian players in their ranks. The likes of Oscar and Ramires will help Nathan settle at Stamford Bridge. Read more »

Barcelona needs to wait to decide over Players

The fanatics of Barcelona had to wait for a while before seeing Neymar and Lionel Messi form the much expected attacking partnership which is supposed to guide the Spanish club through smooth victories and ultimately claim the Spanish League title as well as also help out in their ultimate objective on winning the Champions League trophy.

When Neymar arrived to Barcelona and was unveiled by the club on June 3 of 2013, the Brazilian did not make an immediate and huge impact with Barcelona as he did manage to make a few impressive performances and scored goals for Barcelona during his first season but it wasn’t anything really groundbreaking as fans were expecting the Brazilian to create a fluent and game-changing partnership with Messi but it did not happen until a few months ago.

Neymar has already stated on a number of occasions that he wants to help Barcelona in securing major trophies but the 23 year old attacker has more recently unveiled his desire to bolster and improve his national country which the purpose creating history with Brazil and secure an Olympic crown which is something that the South American country has never managed to do.
