Probably not going to be a very popular thread, but I need a place where I can talk about South American football.

Copa Sudamericana 1/8 finals are being played at the moment, which include a total domination from U. de Chile to none other than Flamengo at Brazil. They're winning 0-3 at half time.

Well Neymar scored a pretty sick goal earlier.

I'm gonna try and follow the Copa Libertadores a lot more next time it comes around. I would like to watch a lot more Argentine football, the few games are very entertaining.

How are Santos doing?

I know Neymar and Ganso want to stay for the next couple of months.

Are Santos doing well?

I'm actually amazed at how many clubs it isn't

Flamengo x 3
Santos x 4
Corinthians x 2
Palmeiras x 4

Seriously?

I watch the Copa Libertadores, but not much else, so you'll see me in there when that's on.

Was very entertaining last season. Loads of upsets and great games.

Yesterday Flamengo lost 4-0 to the La U from Chile, for the Copa Sulamericana (an equivalent to the Europa League for the Conmebol), I watched it and I'm amazed how Flamengo is capable of pulling this kind of horrible performances once in a while.

It was a performance to be remembered as one of the worst ever for a brazilian club in a continental competition and I'm not exaggerating, it's not only the score, it's the whole performance.

This team is funny, led by Ronaldinho, sometimes they play very very well.
I recommend for everyone interested in seeing more of Neymar and Ronaldinho, to watch the highlights of the Santos 3x4 Flamengo game that happened in the middle of the season. Lots of interesting and creative plays.
But their average performance is dissapointing and they are really dependant on Ronaldinho's form, which means, sometimes he'll play like a genius, but most of the time he'll do nothing special.

They are probably going to qualify for the Libertadores next season and will need a lot of reinforcements to be competitive...

^ That the game Ronaldinho acted like Rooney and got the red for the kick?

No. He scores 3 goals and leads a comeback. It was actually 5-4 score not 3-4 like a stated before...

Sorry, meant the 4-0 game.

EDIT: forget it, it was against Ceara.

Actually it's not (I've made the same mistakes a couple of times). Copa Libertadores and Copa Sudamericana are played in different terms, not at the same time and they should have the same meaning (also called "the other half of the glory"). Obviously it doesn't, as Copa Libertadores has so much history behind it and means way more for the casual and die hard fan, also Copa Sudamericana started recently in 04 replacing Copa Mercosur.

In terms of quality I may agree with you, but then again the top teams of South America and Mexico also play Copa Sudamericana, they just add some mediocre ones to make it longer as there isn't a group phase sothe first few stages aren't really worth watching.

U. De Chile played an outstanding game yesterday, it's never easy to play against one of the big Brazilian clubs at Brazil in a international competition. They walked over Flamengo in every sense of the game you could imagine and could have won 0-6 if it wasn't for two goals bad cancelled. It's not a big surprise they won as they have been playing some spectacular football year long with Sampaoli, but the way they did just strikes me out.
