Oscar Delights!

Oscar Delights!

I`ve said it before and I will say it again, international football bores me rigid!

I`ll only be paying a passing glance at the goings on at Wembley tonight, preferring to enjoy the company of my wonderful wife, away on an isolated caravan park with nothing but lakes for company for the next few days.

But, it has to be said; international football does have a degree of entertainment value, especially when it comes to our young Brazilian, Oscar

The youngster was the star of the show last night as Brazil trounced a very weak Iraq side with Oscar, scoring twice in the 6-0 rout and picking up the man-of-the-match accolade against a side who are coached by the Brazilian legend Zico.

12/10/2012 13:41:00
hazabee u got an ideal hangout for them?
12/10/2012 13:48:00
Thank God we won the "OSCAR"

C'mmon martinez#47, they are two diff players, and peeps that knows hazard well are saying he is not in form yet, that when he is in form that he is unlayable, that he is still playing about 5% of his potantials, so I am excited..on oscar, he'll only get better and better, chelsea are playing two no.10s in games, there is no way both of em will be off form, so its a win win for us.
12/10/2012 14:05:00
@martinez,how do u compare oscar and hazard for u to say oscar is better than hazard?i think the two r different in terms of their play and field position.
12/10/2012 14:18:00
They're way different
12/10/2012 15:01:00
come on guys they are not so different,one thing both their prefferd position is the #10 role.Hazard is great,he can pass(i think people have not noticed how flawless his passing is yet),he can take a man on an beat him with sheer skill etc,but Oscar has got everything else his passing is supreme,he can defend(Pirlo,Arterta being shut down know this better than anyone else),he keeps it simple but when need be he opens his bag of tricks and gets out of the tight situation,In my opinion he is better than Hazard.Good thing they both play for us and are yet to reach their max potentials,but hey Im not saying that Oscar is better than Hazard by a mile its just a small difference like Silva and our own Mata difference.I'll leave you to judge who is better (Mata or Silva0 but one thing is for sure its a very small difference.

He is truly a special player and on this i will admit i got it all wrong and the board were absolutely right..i could not see the purpose of us signing him when we got hazard but now it is so clear..the lad is so versatile..i really think he can do for us much of what frank used to and more. Great insightful pick up by our board..and his value will only increase in the next few years.

Neymar, 20, started the fixtures with Iraq and China as a 'false-nine' whilst Oscar and Kaká were charges with interchanging roles in attacking areas, whilst Hulk lined up on the right-flank. The system has overseen two emphatic wins over weak opponents, but Neymar believes that the Seleção are improving, as the coach tests the water with some new formations. "Mano is evaluating his options," Neymar told Rede Globo on Thursday night. "It's a good system [with no centre-forward], everyone is moving and always rotating who plays up-front. "Oscar scored twice and, for the most part, I played up front. The interplay was fluid and it's improving each time." The potent duo of Neymar and Oscar continue to impress and their figures for Brazil so far in their early careers are astounding - Neymar has amassed 14 goals and seven assists in his 24 games to date, while Oscar has four goals and four assists in his 10 appearances.

Great guy, loved his style of play from the very first time I saw him play... very intelligent, efficient, hard working and complete midfield player, reminds me of Zidane... I think he is a better midfield or Number 10 player than Hazard while Hazard is better on the wings (based on what I have seen so far)..
12/10/2012 18:27:00
@Kaku, is playing with a false number 9 the future of top bracket football. Barca do it, Del Bosque used it in the Euros, now Brazil are trying it. Interesting to see.
12/10/2012 19:07:00
how can anyone say hazard is only playing 5% of his potential? how is that information even calculated?
12/10/2012 23:59:00
By checking the Hazardometer3000. I believe Desmond has the only one in existence.
13/10/2012 03:07:00
Compare the performances today of Falcao and Messi against top level opposition in competitive matches that meant something and then compare that to Neymars showing against an abysmal Iraq yesterday. Those who keep saying this guy belongs in the same discussion as those two and other players like Ronaldo and Ibrahimovic are missing the plot. I feel sorry for the Selecao..they are living in self deception and Mano Meneses is pulling a screen over Brazils collective faces. When will he line up the Selecao against top level opposition because they are living in a fools paradise beating up on minnows like China and Iraq who wont even be at the world cup...They better get a dose a reality rather than waiting for the Concacaff tournament in 2014 just before the world cup to discover just how inferior they are compared to the real big boys of world International football.
