    Numero Uno - Macnelly Torres is a 23 year old, Colombian attacking midfielder who currently plays for Colo Colo in Chile. He was born on the 1st November 1984 in Barranquilla, Colombia. He stands at a height of 1.75m.

    International
    Fifa U20 World Cup 2003 - Torres was selected as part of the Colombia squad for this tournament 5 years ago. They were drawn into Group D, where Egypt stood as the first hurdle. The match finished 0-0 with Torres replacing Victor Montano in the 73rd minute. Japan followed, with Colombia taking all three points, after dismantling them 4-1. Torres again appeared as a substitute, this time replacing Erwin Carrillo in the 66th minute. Los Cafeteros' final group game pitted them against England, and Torres was in the starting line up for the first time in the tournament. He played 91 minutes before being replaced by Andres Gonzalez. The match finished 0-0, with Colombia progressing to the round of 16, where Ireland awaited them. Torres started for the second consecutive game, helping his side to a 3-2 win after ET. He played the full 120 minutes. Colombia were now in dreamland, with the United Arab Emirates seperating them from a semi finals berth. Torres started again but was replaced in the 46th minute by Erwin Carrillo. Los Cafeteros progressed following a 1-0 win. Spain proved to be their undoing in the semis, succombing to a 0-1 loss, with none other than Andres Iniesta ending their dream. Torres remained an unused substitute throughout. Colombia went into the tedious 3rd place match as underdogs against Argentina, but prevailed victorious with a 2-1 victory, and took 3rd.
    International Debut - Torres made his senior Colombian debut in a 3-1 victory over Switzerland, on the 25th March 2007. He replaced Alvaro Dominguez in the 86th minute.
    Copa America 2007 - Torres was included in the Colombia squad to take part in the 2007 edition of the Copa America in Venezuela. Los Cafeteros were up against Paraguay in their opening Group C game and the final scoreline was ugly to say the least. Many of the Paraguay players were asking for high 5s after the 5-0 thrashing of their South American counterparts, on the positive side Torres came on in the 56th minute, replacing Alvaro Dominguez, winning his 2nd cap. The next group match wasn't any easier, Argentina the opponents. Colombia put up more of a fight losing 2-4, with Torres making an appearance in the 76th minute, after replacing David Ferreira. With advancing from the group seemingly out of the question, the final group match against the USA was just a matter of winning to regain some confidence. Colombia did just that with a tight 1-0 victory, with Torres playing 85 minutes before being replaced by David Ferreira.
    South American 2010 World Cup Qualifiers - Torres has been involved within a number of World Cup Qualifiers for Colombia over the past year, the first one being the match against Venezuela on the 17th November 2007, a 1-0 win. He came on to replace Aldo Ramirez in the 46th minute. He was then involved in the stunning 2-1 victory over Argentina 3 days later, once again coming on as a half time substitute, this time to replace Jaime Castrillon. His next appearance came on the 14th June 2008 against minnows Peru, this time he was in the starting 11. Colombia drew the match 1-1 with Torres completing 85 minutes before being replaced by Pedro Portocarrero. 4 days later against Ecuador, Torres started for the second consecutive match in a 0-0 draw. He was replaced by Giovanni Hernandez in the 62nd minute. His most recent appearance was against Uruguay on the 6th September 2008, replacing Boca Juniors star Fabian Vargas in the 46th minute. The match ended in a 0-1 win to Uruguay.

    Torres In Action For Colombia.
    Domestic
    Copa Libertadores 2008 - Before his move to Colo Colo, Torres played a vital role in Cucuta Deportivo's run to the round of 16. Cucuta were drawn in Group 6 alongside Santos, San Jose and San Lorenzo, meaning they had an excellent chance of qualification. La Furia Motilona were pitted against Santos in their first game, with a stalemate being the final result. Torres started and completed the full 90 minutes. Next up were Bolivian side San Jose, but the final score was again 0-0, with Torres playing the whole match. Cucuta scored their first goal against Mexican powerhouses Guadalajara in a 1-0 win. Torres played 83 minutes before being replaced by Roberto Penaloza. A second game against Guadalajara followed, with 1-0 again the outcome, this time around Torres completed the full match. San Jose were up next, and this is the game where Torres showed his brilliant range of passing, technical ability and finishing. Cucuta ran out 4-2 winners, with Torres setting up 3 of the goals, all for hat trick hero Matias Urbano, and grabbing a goal in the 54th minute for himself. He also picked up his first booking late on, in the 89th minute. La Furia Motilona were up against Santos in their final group game, and unfortunately had their unbeaten record broken after suffering a 1-2 loss. Torres played yet another full match. Cucuta finished as the group winners and progressed to the round of 16, where they were drawn against group rivals Santos. The 1st leg ended in a 0-2 loss for Cucuta, with Torres playing the full match and picking up a booking in the 89th minute. The 2nd leg again ended in a 0-2 loss for Cucuta, with Torres playing the full 90 once again. It was a dissapointing end to a good start from La Furia Motilona.
    Atletico Junior and Cucuta Deportivo - Here are some season by season appearance records whilst Torres was present at Atletico and Cucuta:
    2002 - Atletico - Colombia - 9 games.
    2003 - Atletico - Colombia - 21 games.
    2004 - Atletico - Colombia - 26 games - 6 goals.
    2005 - Atletico - Colombia - 23 games.
    2006 - Cucuta - Colombia - 43 games - 3 goals.
    2007 - Cucuta - Colombia - 36 games - 8 goals.
    2008 - Cucuta - Colombia - 15 games.
    Torres made 79 appearances, scoring 6 goals whilst at Atletico Junior, and 93 appearances, scoring 11 goals whilst at Cucuta Deportivo. He definately showed the rest of South America his technical qualities whilst at Cucuta where he shone as the most important playmaker of the team, providing killer passes for striker Matias Urbano to latch on to on a frequent basis. He was Pedro Sarmiento's prized asset, and he used him in his best position, behind the forward.

    From Atletico To Cucuta.
    Colo Colo - During May 2008 Colo Colo brought Torres for £1,200,000 from Cucuta making him the most expensive player to ever be brought by a Chilean club, and so far he has lived up to his price tag. He has made 11 starts, 1 substitute appearance and has scored 4 goals. He made his debut on the 29th June 2008 against Deportivo Melipilla, and scored his first and second goals for the club on the 16th July 2008 against Provincial Osorno. These goals came in the 29th and 55th minutes. His next goal didn't come until the 24th August 2008 against O'Higgins, in the 86th minute, making it 3 for the season. Three days later he scored against Union Espanola in the 84th minute, taking his current tally to four goals. He has usually played as part of a two man attacking midfield, within a 4-2-2-2 formation or as the playmaker within a 4-3-1-2 formation.

    A New Adventure In Chile.
    Honours - Here are his career honours to date:
    Colombian Primera A - Atletico Junior - 2004.
    Colombian Primera A - Atletico Junior - 2006.
    Personal Viewpoint - With Colo Colo making the most of his excellent passing and attacking threat, his game should improve and a regular spot within the Colombian starting 11 is not out of the question. He needs to start scoring more consistently, but if he is creating, which is his best asset it would not really matter if his scoring was patchy.

    #7 Guilherme

    Perhaps a well known find here, but I guarantee this report walks all over anybody elses on the forum. His name is Guilhereme and is currently ripping defences open over in Brazil. He was born on the 22nd October 1988 in Imperatriz, Brazil, making him 19 years of age. He stands at a height of 1.74m.


    Guilherme Clenches His Fist In Celebration.


    Moving straight into the domestic scene with Guilherme, he was nurtured through the Cruzeiro youth system from 2003 to 2006 before impresseing enough to earn a spot on the first team for the 2007 season in Brazil. He made his debut on the 12th May 2007 against Fluminense, where he replaced Nene, then went on to record his full debut against Parana on the 27th May 2007, scoring two goals in the process. These came in the 43rd and 73rd minutes. After his excellent performance he picked up an injury and was out until the 24th June 2007, when he returned to action against Atletico Mineiro. He scored in the 76th minute after coming on to replace Charles in the 65th minute. Six days later he scored again after coming off the bench, this time against Vasco Da Gama. He had replaced Leandro Domingues at half time, picked up his first booking in the 56th minute, and then slotted home a goal in the 92nd minute. His next couple of goals didn't come until matchday fifteen where Cruzeiro welcomed Botafogo on the 29th July 2007. He started the match, and scored in the 46th and 80th minutes, from the left wing, an unusual position for Guilherme. There was then an even longer wait for his next goal which came all the way down the road on the 13th September 2007 against Flamengo. Guilherme replaced Luis Alberto in the 78th minute, before scoring just three minutes later. Three days later, Guilherme scored a brace against Atletico Mineiro after replacing Marcelo Moreno in the 60th minute. His goals came in the 61st and 77th minutes. A string of goalless substitute appearances followed before scoring what turned out to be his final goal of the season on matchday thirty four against Botafogo, on the 1st November 2007. He scored the only goal in a poor 4-1 loss, in the 20th minute. His records for the season were: 13 starts, 13 substitute appearances, 12 games where he was unused, 10 goals and 3 yellow cards. When Guilherme started he played as a forward nine times, a left winger three times and a right winger just once. A good season, and more was to come as we will see.

    Moving on now to the 2008 Copa Libertadores where Cruzeiro first had to win a two legged qualification match against Cerro Porteno of Paraguay to enter the group stage. Guilherme completed 61 minutes of the 1st leg before being replaced by teenage prodigy Kerlon. "A Raposa" came out on top 3-1, to hold a healthy lead going into the 2nd leg in Paraguay. Guilherme didn't feature in the 2nd leg, but Cruzeiro came away with a 2-3 victory, 6-3 on aggregate. With the victory "A Rapona" were put into the draw for the group stage, where they were pitted against Real Potosi, San Lorenzo and Caracas FC, one of the easier groups in the competition. First up were Real Potosi, and they proved to be nothing more than a bump in the road after Cruzeiro thumped them 3-0, with Guilherme scoring in the 64th minute, seconds after replacing Fernandinho. A bore 0-0 draw followed against San Lorenzo, with Guilherme being replaced by Marcinho in the 61st minute. A match against Venezuelan side FC Caracas came next, and there was a second 3-0 win for Cruzeiro, with Guilherme scoring in the 10th minute, and claiming one assist also. He was replaced by Leandro Domingues in the 71st minute. Guilherme missed the return against FC Caracas, where it finised all square at 1-1. He was back in the starting eleven against San Lorenzo however, and completed 66 minutes before being replaced by Thiago Heleno. The full time score was 3-1 to Cruzeiro. The tides dramatically changed in the final group game against Real Potosi though, with the Bolivian side demolishing "A Rapona" 1-5, Guilherme didn't feature. Cruzeiro still won their group and progressed into the round of 16 where they were given a very tough draw against Boca Juniors. They needed a good first leg result to stay in touch with the Argentinean superpower, but unfortunately lost 1-2. Guilherme completed 61 minutes before Jonathon replaced him. The return leg again turned out to be a 1-2 loss for Cruzeiro, with Guilherme substituted at half time, replaced by Marcinho. A 2-4 loss on aggregate sent "A Rapona" crashing out of the competition.


    Boca Proved To Be Cruzeiro's Undoing.


    Finally onto the ongoing 2008 season in Brazil where Guilerme is in the form of his life. Altogether this season he has started thirty games, scored seventeen goals, been substituted into a game just once and has picked up five bookings. Here is a quick summary of his goals this season:


    13th February 2008 - Real Potosi (Copa) - 1 Goal - 64th Minute
    4th March 2008 - Caracas FC (Copa) - 1 Goal - 10th Minute
    17th May 2008 - Botafogo - 1 Goal - 11th Minute
    25th May 2008 - Santos - 2 Goals - 18th and 63rd Minutes
    12th June 2008 - Palmeiras - 1 Goal - 17th Minute
    21st June 2008 - Figueirense - 1 Goal - 34th Minute
    29th June 2008 - Sao Paulo - 1 Goal - 33rd Minute
    26th July 2008 - Fluminense - 1 Goal - 36th Minute
    30th July 2008 - Nautico - 2 Goals - 16th and 69th Minutes
    3rd August 2008 - Flamengo - 1 Goal - 66th Minute
    16th August 2008 - Vitoria - 1 Goal - 56th Minute
    4th September 2008 - Vasco Da Gama - 2 Goals - 29th and 76th Minutes
    21st September 2008 - Figueirense - 2 Goals - 13th and 78th Minutes


    As you can see he is scoring bags of goals but goalscoring isn't his only quality. Guilherme is supurb at finding space, one of the reasons he scores so many goals, he can just get a couple of yards on a defender with ease. Being two footed helps any player, Guilherme possesses this quality and uses it to devastating effect. He also has a wonderful touch like many Brazilian players. Guilherme is a great example of a second striker, he can run at defenders, score goals and most importantly provide assists with inch perfect passes as well, proving why he is considered one of the best playmakers currently in the Campeonato Brasileiro, even though he scores as many goals as an out an out striker. His current contract runs until the 31st January 2012, meaning clubs wishing to get their hands on him would need to pay a hefty sum of cash to aqquire him.


    Good At Finding Space - Guilherme.


    Personal Viewpoint - Even if Guilherme went off the boil now, he would still have had a sensational season. Surely a move to Europe will arrive in January, he certainly has the quality to succeed


    Guilherme's Best Position Is Certainly SS, But Can Play As A CF, RW Or LW.

    I have to explain my vote, as always....
    I like all involved in this group, as people and forumers but sadly, cant vote for more than one....
    I have Voted for Jewi.... Although he is not as active recently, when he has been he has created good threads that have got people involved and posting.... Besides the fact hes a great lad, he has a sensible (Sometimes) head on his shoulders and he stands out as a great overall forumer to me...
    Neller is a closet United fan so can't vote for him... , We have both openly talked about our love of the scum, thats why I like him so much, hasn't been that active since stepping down as a mod, granted, its because he's been busy...
    Insider is a great scout, and a great bloke to talk to, always replies in the best manner to any posts, if he disagrees or not, was very close to getting my vote if I'm honest...
    Joe is great to talk to and his scouting is also brilliant, contributes to other parts of the forum but not enough to get my vote....Sorry Pal...
    Steve, in his own words, shouldn't be here... I disagree, as the votes got him here, obviously others think he should be here... He is now showing in the Gold Setups section, flashes of the brilliance that came from his old match reports.... Not active enough to get my vote though sorry mate...
    Sorry for the analysis of everyone, but I feel its important that everyone explains there decisions for voting and not voting for people from this stage onwards... It gives people feedback on how they have been doing and also, maybe, where they have been going wrong...
    Good luck to everyone in this group.....

    32nd minute GOAL - Benfica are back level through centre back Moreira David Luiz. A stunning goal from the young man, after making his way past a handful of defenders, he lashed home a great effort.
    39th minute CHANCE - Just as David Suazo thought his shot would nestle in the corner of the net, it was cleared away at full stretch and out for a corner much to his disbelief.
    42nd minute GOAL - Benfica were in front just before half time, thanks to Oscar Cardozo's powerful finish after the defender's attempted clearance hit him in the face and rolled into the Paraguayan's path.

    International
    Fifa U20 World Cup 2003 - Torres was selected as part of the Colombia squad for this tournament 5 years ago. They were drawn into Group D, where Egypt stood as the first hurdle. The match finished 0-0 with Torres replacing Victor Montano in the 73rd minute. Japan followed, with Colombia taking all three points, after dismantling them 4-1. Torres again appeared as a substitute, this time replacing Erwin Carrillo in the 66th minute. Los Cafeteros' final group game pitted them against England, and Torres was in the starting line up for the first time in the tournament. He played 91 minutes before being replaced by Andres Gonzalez. The match finished 0-0, with Colombia progressing to the round of 16, where Ireland awaited them. Torres started for the second consecutive game, helping his side to a 3-2 win after ET. He played the full 120 minutes. Colombia were now in dreamland, with the United Arab Emirates seperating them from a semi finals berth. Torres started again but was replaced in the 46th minute by Erwin Carrillo. Los Cafeteros progressed following a 1-0 win. Spain proved to be their undoing in the semis, succombing to a 0-1 loss, with none other than Andres Iniesta ending their dream. Torres remained an unused substitute throughout. Colombia went into the tedious 3rd place match as underdogs against Argentina, but prevailed victorious with a 2-1 victory, and took 3rd.
    International Debut - Torres made his senior Colombian debut in a 3-1 victory over Switzerland, on the 25th March 2007. He replaced Alvaro Dominguez in the 86th minute.
    Copa America 2007 - Torres was included in the Colombia squad to take part in the 2007 edition of the Copa America in Venezuela. Los Cafeteros were up against Paraguay in their opening Group C game and the final scoreline was ugly to say the least. Many of the Paraguay players were asking for high 5s after the 5-0 thrashing of their South American counterparts, on the positive side Torres came on in the 56th minute, replacing Alvaro Dominguez, winning his 2nd cap. The next group match wasn't any easier, Argentina the opponents. Colombia put up more of a fight losing 2-4, with Torres making an appearance in the 76th minute, after replacing David Ferreira. With advancing from the group seemingly out of the question, the final group match against the USA was just a matter of winning to regain some confidence. Colombia did just that with a tight 1-0 victory, with Torres playing 85 minutes before being replaced by David Ferreira.
    South American 2010 World Cup Qualifiers - Torres has been involved within a number of World Cup Qualifiers for Colombia over the past year, the first one being the match against Venezuela on the 17th November 2007, a 1-0 win. He came on to replace Aldo Ramirez in the 46th minute. He was then involved in the stunning 2-1 victory over Argentina 3 days later, once again coming on as a half time substitute, this time to replace Jaime Castrillon. His next appearance came on the 14th June 2008 against minnows Peru, this time he was in the starting 11. Colombia drew the match 1-1 with Torres completing 85 minutes before being replaced by Pedro Portocarrero. 4 days later against Ecuador, Torres started for the second consecutive match in a 0-0 draw. He was replaced by Giovanni Hernandez in the 62nd minute. His most recent appearance was against Uruguay on the 6th September 2008, replacing Boca Juniors star Fabian Vargas in the 46th minute. The match ended in a 0-1 win to Uruguay.

    Torres In Action For Colombia.
    Domestic
    Copa Libertadores 2008 - Before his move to Colo Colo, Torres played a vital role in Cucuta Deportivo's run to the round of 16. Cucuta were drawn in Group 6 alongside Santos, San Jose and San Lorenzo, meaning they had an excellent chance of qualification. La Furia Motilona were pitted against Santos in their first game, with a stalemate being the final result. Torres started and completed the full 90 minutes. Next up were Bolivian side San Jose, but the final score was again 0-0, with Torres playing the whole match. Cucuta scored their first goal against Mexican powerhouses Guadalajara in a 1-0 win. Torres played 83 minutes before being replaced by Roberto Penaloza. A second game against Guadalajara followed, with 1-0 again the outcome, this time around Torres completed the full match. San Jose were up next, and this is the game where Torres showed his brilliant range of passing, technical ability and finishing. Cucuta ran out 4-2 winners, with Torres setting up 3 of the goals, all for hat trick hero Matias Urbano, and grabbing a goal in the 54th minute for himself. He also picked up his first booking late on, in the 89th minute. La Furia Motilona were up against Santos in their final group game, and unfortunately had their unbeaten record broken after suffering a 1-2 loss. Torres played yet another full match. Cucuta finished as the group winners and progressed to the round of 16, where they were drawn against group rivals Santos. The 1st leg ended in a 0-2 loss for Cucuta, with Torres playing the full match and picking up a booking in the 89th minute. The 2nd leg again ended in a 0-2 loss for Cucuta, with Torres playing the full 90 once again. It was a dissapointing end to a good start from La Furia Motilona.
    Atletico Junior and Cucuta Deportivo - Here are some season by season appearance records whilst Torres was present at Atletico and Cucuta:
    2002 - Atletico - Colombia - 9 games.
    2003 - Atletico - Colombia - 21 games.
    2004 - Atletico - Colombia - 26 games - 6 goals.
    2005 - Atletico - Colombia - 23 games.
    2006 - Cucuta - Colombia - 43 games - 3 goals.
    2007 - Cucuta - Colombia - 36 games - 8 goals.
    2008 - Cucuta - Colombia - 15 games.
    Torres made 79 appearances, scoring 6 goals whilst at Atletico Junior, and 93 appearances, scoring 11 goals whilst at Cucuta Deportivo. He definately showed the rest of South America his technical qualities whilst at Cucuta where he shone as the most important playmaker of the team, providing killer passes for striker Matias Urbano to latch on to on a frequent basis. He was Pedro Sarmiento's prized asset, and he used him in his best position, behind the forward.

    From Atletico To Cucuta.
    Colo Colo - During May 2008 Colo Colo brought Torres for £1,200,000 from Cucuta making him the most expensive player to ever be brought by a Chilean club, and so far he has lived up to his price tag. He has made 11 starts, 1 substitute appearance and has scored 4 goals. He made his debut on the 29th June 2008 against Deportivo Melipilla, and scored his first and second goals for the club on the 16th July 2008 against Provincial Osorno. These goals came in the 29th and 55th minutes. His next goal didn't come until the 24th August 2008 against O'Higgins, in the 86th minute, making it 3 for the season. Three days later he scored against Union Espanola in the 84th minute, taking his current tally to four goals. He has usually played as part of a two man attacking midfield, within a 4-2-2-2 formation or as the playmaker within a 4-3-1-2 formation.

    A New Adventure In Chile.
    Honours - Here are his career honours to date:
    Colombian Primera A - Atletico Junior - 2004.
    Colombian Primera A - Atletico Junior - 2006.
    Personal Viewpoint - With Colo Colo making the most of his excellent passing and attacking threat, his game should improve and a regular spot within the Colombian starting 11 is not out of the question. He needs to start scoring more consistently, but if he is creating, which is his best asset it would not really matter if his scoring was patchy.

    Huge Riser - Christian Pasquato - Young Italian Striker
    This is my third player talent post, the others were Trevizan Felipe and Luke De Vere.
    This player has never before been mentioned, which is why i may have put him in the talent scout section, however IMO this player is in for a big rise!

    Christian Pasquato
    Christian plays for Italian Serie B side Empoli. He stands at 5ft 8inches, and was born on the 20th July 1989. This obviously makes him only 19 years old.
    He wears the number 34 top for his club Empoli.
    Pasquato has currently played 303 minutes out of a possible 360 minutes. He has started all four games played so far this season, playing the full 90 minutes in each, and being subbed off after 30 minutes in the last. He has also got 1 goal to his name already.
    This great prospect is only rated 72on SM :eek: !!! The fourth lowest rated player Empoli have Another thing to mention is he is keeping out 87 rated striker Pozzi(0 played) and 86 rated striker Saudati(0 played).
    Empoli also have an average rating of 81 on SM and with Christian Pasquato being 9 ratings less than this, i think a huge rise is in store. Oh yer and he can be snapped up for only 50k
    Now to the good stuff !!! I predict he will rise from 72-77/78 and 80 a possibility, then after that (if he continues playing) 84!!! This makes him a tremendous signing and money spinner.

    Xavier Baez, Guadalajara is playing on a regular basis , he's played 527 of 810 minutes so far this season.
    I think most likely he'll rise +1 to 87 (70%) and there's a small chance he'll stay the same at 86 (30%).

    #6 Ronald Vargas

    Another player from Venezuela here, his name is Ronald Vargas, born on the 2nd December 1986 in Guatrie, Venezuela. He is currently 21 years of age and 1.74m in height.


    Vargas Shouting In Triumph.


    Back in 2005, Vargas was in the Venezuela squad for the South American U17 Championship, although Venezuela only won one game, Vargas scored a couple of goals and gained some appearances at International level. First up were powerhouses Argentina, "La Vinotinto" succombed to a 0-3 loss and an immediate loss of morale. Vargas played 33 minutes after replacing Nicolas Feder in the 57th minute. A 3-3 draw with Bolivia followed, with Vargas replacing Ever Espinoza in the 39th minute. Venezuela's second loss came next though, with Coloumbia wrapping up a 0-2 victory. Vargas gained his first start however, and a full 90 minutes. "La Vinotinto's" first win came next, with a 3-0 thumping of Peru. Vargas was replaced by Elias Leal with 23 minutes of the match remaining. Venezuela did just enough to scrape through to the final stage. They did not have a good start, losing 0-1 to Argentina, with Vargas replacing Nicolas Feder in the 85th minute. Another 0-1 loss followed, this time against Brazil. Vargas again appeared as a late substitute, with Paul Ramirez making way in the 83rd minute. Chile proved too much for "La Vinotinto" in the next game, losing 2-3. Vargas scored twice, in the 42nd and 67th minute proving he was a starting 11 player. He played the whole match. Uruguay then beat Venezuela 1-2 to pile on the misery. For the second game running, Vargas played the full 90 minutes. Venezuela played Colombia in their final game, and they could not muster anything from it, losing 0-2, with Vargas playing a full match again. "La Vinotinto" gained no points and finished last in the group. Vargas was 2nd joint top scorer with 2 goals, behind Paul Ramirez (4) and equal with Nicolas Fedor (2).

    In February this year, Vargas made his senior international debut for Venezuela against Haiti in a friendly. Four months later Venezuela gained a legendary 2-0 victory over Brazil, with Vargas on the scoresheet, his best international moment so far. Since then he has started 3 of "La Vinotinto's" games in the 2010 South American World Cup Qualifying section. The first came against Uruguay on the 14th June 2008, where Vargas scored in the 55th minute, before being replaced by Alexander Rondon in the 72nd minute. Five days later, Chile were the opponents, and Venezuela succombed to a 2-3 loss. Vargas started again, and was replaced by Tomas Rincon in the 60th minute. This month, on the 6th September 2008, Vargas started the match against Peru, before being replaced by Alejandro Abraham Guerra in the 66th minute. "La Vinotinto" lost 0-1.


    Regular Starter For Venezuela Now?


    Caracas FC were Vargas' home from 2005 through to the 14th May 2008. Altogether he made 43 appearances, scoring 10 goals. The 2008 Copa Libertadores was the only competition where Vargas showed his capability on the entire South American scene. On the 12th February 2008 he started Caracas' first Group A match against Argentinean side, San Lorenzo. Vargas was booked in the 4th minute, played the whole match and his team won 2-0. A great start for Caracas. Real Potosi of Bolivia were next and Caracas gained their 2nd successive victory, winning 3-1. Vargas scored in the 38th minute, but was then sent off 6 minutes later, meaning he would miss the next match. Next up were group favouries Cruzeiro, from Brazil. With Vargas missing they struggled to a 0-3 loss. On the 18th March 2008, Cruzeiro were back in town and this time Caracas gained a creditable 1-1 draw. Vargas was back from suspension, straight back in the line up and played the full match. The 1st April 2008 saw "Los Rojos Del Avila" take on Real Potosi, if Caracas wanted to progress to the next stage they needed a win and they didn't get it. Potosi took the spoils 1-3, much to the disappointment of Caracas and their supporters. Vargas played the full match. San Lorenzo were Caracas' final chance to qualify, and once again "Los Rojos Del Avila" failed to show up, losing 0-3. Vargas captained the side, and was later replaced by Emilio Renteria in the 68th minute. He also picked up a booking in the 38th minute. Caracas finished 3rd in Group A, 3 points behind San Lorenzo and 4 behind Cruzeiro.

    On the 14th May 2008, Club Brugge of Belgium secured the services of Ronald Vargas for the next 4 seasons, after buying the Venezuelan for £800,000 on a 4 year deal. After a long wait throughout pre season, Vargas made his competitive league debut for Brugge on the 29th August 2008 against Tupize. He came on as an 82nd minute substitute for Wesley Sonck, with Brugge winning 4-1. On the 13th September 2008, Vargas started for the first time in a Brugge shirt in a league match against Dender, he was replaced by Peruvian, Daniel Chavez in the 69th minute. 1-1 was the full time score. Yesterday in the Uefa Cup First Round, Vargas played the whole match for Brugge against BSC Young Boys of Switzerland, with a 2-2 draw the final result.



    He Shone For Caracas, Now To Light Brugge Up.


    Vargas usually plays as either an attacking midfielder, centre midfielder or right winger. Brugge seem to be playing him on the right side of midfield, however Venezuela tend to use him 'in the hole' behind Giancarlo Maldonado and Juan Arango.

    Personal Viewpoint - If Vargas can hold a starting 11 place, he should be a hit in Belgium providing he doesn't suffer from the different style of play disease. £800,000 could well turn out to be a bargain.


    Vargas Can Play On The RW and RM, But Also As An AM or CM.

    #4 Taison


    Taison Posing For The Cameras.

    The greatest footballing country is next on my list, and I present you Taison Barcellos Freda (With a big thank you to Insider). He was born in Pelotas, Brazil on the 13th January 1988, making him 20 years of age. He is 1.72m in height.

    The international scene has eluded Taison for now, but he will surely be capped at sometime in his career, which will be a very good one, so the domestic scene is my only source. He currently plays for "Nacao Vermelha", Internacional in his native country, Brazil.

    Taison has burst onto the first team scene this season, but before we dive into that, we will take a look at his brief career before he became an important member of the Internacional squad. He was spotted by Gremio at first, and played through the youth ranks for a number of years, this then led to a trial with Intrenacional, but he was rejected. He then proved himself to be an excellent player in the State Youth Championships, his rise to prominence was once again seen by "Nacho Vermelha", but this time signed a contract with them until 2013, with a release clause of £33 million pounds, this shows how highly he is regarded by Internacional. His speed and dribbling are sensational, and has been compared to Milan star Alexandre Pato and Real Betis player, Rafael Sobis.


    Gremio Spotted Him, Internacional Possess His Talent.


    So onto the 2008 Brasileiro Serie A, where Taison has enjoyed breaking into the starting 11 on a regular basis. Altogether he has made 11 starts, appeared as a substitute twice, has scored 1 goal and has picked up 3 yellow cards. He scored his first ever goal for the first team, against Palmeiras just three days ago, on the 21st August 2008. His goal came in the 85th minute, after coming on as a substitute. His other substitute appearance came against Vitoria on the 22nd June. His three bookings came on the 6th July 2008 against Coritiba, the 26th July 2008 against Ipatinga and finally on the 2nd August 2008 against Fluminense. He has featured on both wings occasionally, but has mainly featured as part of a two/three man attacking midfield.

    Personal Viewpoint - This player has a great future ahead of him, if he is being compared to Pato by his team mates, and is holding a regular spot in the starting 11, this 20 year old should start to raise a few eyebrows. With a £33 million pound release clause, Internacional must think he is star quality in the making.


    AM Usually, SS, LW and RW Occasionally.
