Oh dear, oh dear…

Said Ronaldinho apres le match:

“It was an easy chance, but the ball got stuck in my ankle.”

…which, by way of an artist’s impression, we think would look a little like this…

For the record, Flamengo went on to win 2-1 – no thanks to a certain dentally-unorthodox Brazilian malingerer.

    Off topic, but how on earth has Flamengo managed to field a kit without a sponsor across the front? They have BMG on the shoulders and UNICEF on the upper chest and Mobil Super on the lower back and the ass of the shorts, but no “main” sponsor? Just seems very odd to me…

    @sloth – it is because (I understand) the club generates enough from shirt sales, pitch-side sponsorship and TV rights to see them through. Which is why, like Barcelona previously, they allow UNICEF space on the shirts.

    To think he was considered one of the best players in the world only a few short years ago.

    @Mr. Sparkle: Eh…he was

    This guy in his prime was one the greatest No.10s to grace the pitch.

    To be fair that ball just came off the woodwork and has got some serious ω. I know he’s supposed to be world class and all, but I’ll cut an aging legend some slack every once in a while.

    I often wonder how many of you lot have ever kicked a football.

    I like how the people doing the graphic about the distance to goal saw fit to render in a massive crowd in a great looking stadium, then it switches back to reality where there’s a greenhouse and some cranes behind goal.
