VICTOR RAMOS

victor-ramos1.jpg

Four big talents emerged from the unlikely youth factory that is Vitoria in 2008: Marquinhos, a valuable attacking midfielder now at Palmeiras, Willians, a winger who is also at Palmeiras, Marcelo Cordeio, the left wingback now backing up Kleber at Inter and Anderson Martins, the central defender who was voted best player in the Campeonato Baiano, currenly negociating a deal with Santos. Add in there Leonardo Silva, who is now plying his trade at Cruzeiro, and we have a very respectible system.

This season, Victor Ramos is the first name to pop up on any list. If the uncanny similarities to the Anderson Martins situation suggest that his stock will skyrocket soon, his actual performances suggest that he might just be better. Let's start off with a few similiarites. They both came to Vitoria as youngsters (Victor Ramos has been in the program since 1998, when he was 10), they both were noted as hardest workers in the youth program, they both gradually worked their way up to winning the confidence of the manager, and they both replaced more experienced defenders.

Anderson Martins started most of last year next to Leonardo Silva, stealing away Marcelo Batatais' spot. However, despite Leonardo's departure to Cruzeiro, it was clear in Vitoria's mind that they had the talent required with Wallace, Victor Ramos and Thiago Gomes to replace Marcelo, who's contract was not renewed. For those who do not know, Batatais was a regular for Cruzeiro for a few years and was generally known as a reliable defender.

Now, this leaves us with Anderson Martins, Thiago Gomes, Victor Ramos and Wallace. Why are we so exited about Victor Ramos, you may ask? First of all, Thiago Gomes was let go before the Brasileiro, replaced by Robson. Second of all, Victor Ramos is an example in versatility, with advantages that you cannot devellop. Anderson Martins, Robson and Wallace are all 1.83 metres, average height for a central defender. Victor is closer to 1.93 metres. Technically, Victor Ramos is one also one of the best options, he knows the system throughout and is a valliable worker.

Another major benefit is that, with Anderson Martins, Victor Ramos is one of the two top ball-movers on the squad. In the air, Victor Ramos will soar over any of the other Vitoria defenders, though his offensive heading lacks compared to Wallace. Add in that Victor is the strongest of the four and the youngest, you see why Vitoria want to nurture this player and get all his potential out of him. They are giving him every chance possible. Not that he has needed them.

Now, it's nice to have a good story and potential, but what's the use without performances? He got his first start last season in some kind of strange, 4 centre back formation (actually, Wallace played DM in front of Batatais, Thiago Gomes and Victor Ramos, but that's beside the point), and was brought back into the squad at the end of the Baiano this season, enough for 6 starts and 1 sub appearance in the Campeonato. He also started 5 Copa do Brasil games early in the season, including a goal against Atletico Mineiro.

His true brilliance however has been in the Brasileiro. He got the nod for the first match, and played a full 90 against Atletico Paranaense. Vitoria managed to keep a clean sheet. Next up were Sport Recife. Again, full 90 for Victor Ramos. Again, a clean sheet. Last week, Cruzeiro finally broke the defense, beating the Bahia side 2-0. Another 90 mins in this one, and don't judge Victor Ramos' performance by the scoreline. He was one of 6 centre-backs nominated for the team of the week by Brazilian journalists. Two of these will be voted into the side by the fans.

He is viewed as a leader by example, respected already despite having just turned 20. If he keeps up the good play and stays with Vitoria, there is already talk of him as a future captain.

He is currently rated 77.

Re: VICTOR RAMOS, Ferreira

Victor Ramos has now played 630 minutes out of a possible 630 minutes for high-flying, 3rd place Vitoria. He has emerged as the key peg of their solid defense (with Wallace and Anderson Martins) and a leader of the team, reinforcing my opinion that he's a future captain.

He's only 20 (just turned 20 in May), so these are very valuable attributes to have.

Re: VICTOR RAMOS, Ferreira

is he worth trading in walter for him?

i only have 600k and he is just over a million

thanks

I'd take Victor over Walter, easily. Victor is much more reliable, will easily hit mid-eighties this year. Walter has more superstar potential, you can buy him back later, he won't rise at the moment because of his long-term injury.

Re: VICTOR RAMOS, Ferreira

Just scored his first goal, in the 28th minute against Santos. Awkward volley running away from the goal. Nothing pretty, but he got it on goal and it counts. 4-0 so far :D

EDIT: I guess he sacrificed defense for offense. Took down Para in the box for a penalty, where he really was at fault. 4-1.

Re: VICTOR RAMOS, Ferreira
