    It's barm so STFU.
    Keirrison (sp?) was another who sank without trace in Spain after being touted as the next big Brazilian signing - signed by Pep from Palmeiras - looks like Pep got it right second time around with Jesus.

    Deco was a pretty high achiever, 6 European league titles 2 champions leagues and went back to Brazil in his thirties and won two more titles.
    If Moreno achieves anything like him he will be some player.

    Well fair enough, I don't know why I had this thought then lol, must have seen a few hard workers and generalized too quickly.

    For the sake of accuracy: Keirrison wasn't Pep's signing, he was never supposed to play for Barca, just like defender Henrique. Everyone who followed Barca knew it, it was a typical shady deal by Barcelona.

    Yep. Another thing is that Keirrison was never called"next big thing" in Brazil. Lol.
    In the past was very hard to fact check these things, but today when you hear about "next big thing" you only need to see what the locals are saying about the player..
    For example: when the european media was calling G.J "next Neymar", any Brazilian would confirm that GJ is not really a winger.

    Pato was destroyed by injuries.
    He has a genetic problem. Under any stress his muscles tend to react as if he was falling.

    Just saw highlights of him playing against Levante. He got an assist and looked great! Strong, great control and skill. Can't believe he won't play more.

    Best of luck to the kid.

    Hopefully he can put the Girona experience behind him and show why we were so keen to secure his signature.
