    On 2nd match, At. Nacional was 1-0 ahead, but before 2nd goal the ref. Carlos Amarilla (who has an agenda against uruguayan teams and national team since the start of his career) don't called another penalty and dismissed a legitime goal of Peñarol calling an incorrect offside, both chances would gave Peñarol a 1-1 tie and could been another match after that.

    After first 2 matches, facing the best team on southamérica (U. Chile) with 4 points in the pocket would be a different scenario, than having 0 pts and bad goal difference, but futbol in southamerica is that way, try to beat stroger rivals when they get into your path, and have some luck trying to avoid corrupt referees as Amarilla.

    Sad to see that no uruguayan teams on next round, but must be a wake up call for managers and coaches, for making our teams be respected by referees, and for coaches to play better football and not trying to get one point playing lame matches.
    You bring up a big concern in Latin football. I think three of the worst arbitrated areas of footy are offsides, penalties and disallowed goals. As long as we remain focused on keeping the game free-flowing, there will always be concern about the fairness and impartiality of officials. Here in the US, most major sports have a review process. The NFL review process allows each team to challenge up to 2 objectionable decisions during a game but this delays games up to 3 mins for review per challenge.

    Assume that we had both teams use both review challenges in the game, that's a 12 min delay. Not bad in the interest of fairness but this is a non-starter, so there really is nothing else to do but have review and scoring process for referees that promote or demote referees and linespersons who make or miss obvious issues consistently. Then again, have you seen the quality or lack of refereeing in the PL this season ?

    Can't be more agree with the review process, also major sports have their own system, NFL, NBA, even Tennis has their own since some years ago, but Fifa refuses to take action.
    Only since last WC, when England were harmed against Germany, Fifa start thinking on a goal line system, but there's more controversial decisions that need to be reviewed but Fifa don't even care on study that ones, 'cause ref's mistakes most of the times favor big money, powerful countries and Fergie.

    Tough loss Mari but looks like you fans were looking at the bright side - now Nacional can focus on defending the Primera title.

    That is some proper stadium atmosphere that!

    People going to Anfield should probably take note and we'll just maybe make Anfield a fortress again!

    Its been a while since I last watched an entire game of Leandro Damiao's and after watching most of today's rain-soaked match between Inter and Ceramica in the Campeanato Gaucho, and with all the deserved hype Cavani's been getting, its worth remembering that Leandro might end up being the more affordable option at center forward for us.

    Inter won 3-0 (the pitch was waterlogged!), and Damiao was everywhere. He scored the 2nd goal - excellent finish. His technical ability and touch is eye-catchingly good and his hold up play and distribution is top notch.

    Congrats Mari ! Is Gonzalo Bueno a better prospect than Viudez at this time ? Only 19 and seems to be shining big-time.

    I was out most of this afternoon but watched the Atletico Nacional v Patriotas Liga Colombia game tonight. Dorlan Pabon scored a penalty in the 40th minute and had at least 3 other shots on goal saved. Cannon leg he has ! And he was quite the handful, as evidenced by the elbow to the face he took when he was about burst by one of the Patriotas fullbacks and when their center-back Portocarrero was sent-off for a foul on him. He does have a little bit of a selfish streak in him but its likely because he is head and shoulders the best striker on the team and has scored a few goals from 30+ yards this season. Still, it would be worth a Liverpool scouts time to check him out because he is still a relative unknown even though he is now a key starter for Colombia's WC Qualifying campaign. Value/moneyball written all over him.

    Of course i think he had a great future, the problem will be if he go to europe being so young, this is a problem of to many young players, that they see the money and wanna go, here in uruguayan press are already saying that he'll go to Italy in european summer/ uruguayan winter, and i don't think that he had the maturity to affront european football, it's seen in certain details, i think if he is inteligent he will stay a few years more, play some libertadres, and recently there migrate.
    He is in the list of preselected for the olympics.

    I think Gonzalo Bueno deserves more minutes, i mean, forwards as Viudez, Vicente Sánchez, Porta, Alexander Medina are ahead of Gonzalo in Gallardo's consideration, so played few minutes this season, when he's the best prospect on Nacional's team, I'm agree with Maripacha, would be good to stay at least one more full season and play as starter to get ready for Europe.

    Same happens to Facundo Píriz (22), defensive midfielder, also in the olympic preselection, last season had a great performance on his first season as starter on the team, but this year Gallardo signed the argentinian Damonte, and Píriz is having few minutes, now need more game to recover his shape.

    But there's a player that won his place on the starter team this year, Alexis Rolín (23), central defender but he can play also at the wing backs, very technical and solid player, great temper and use to score goals, he's ready for europe now and have great chances to play on starting 11 in the olympics with Coates.
    I would add Polenta (U17 player, big temper and corpulent for its age) and Martín Cáceres (main NT and Juventus player, he can play in all defensive places) and defense would be solid as a rock!

    The problem i think is that the only league they can make money over there is Brazil, corect me if i'm wrong.

    Does anyone know anything on Jackson Martinez from Jaguares in Mexico ?
    It's the second time we are linked with him in the past few mounths.

    It wasn't a good weekend over there as Racing lost 4-1 to Independiente in the Avellaneda derby.
    Really thought Racing can push for the title this season.

    For what its worth, Jackson is possibly technique wise the best center-forward in the Mexican Primera but just as Jaguares started off well this year but have tapered off, so has Martinez. That's my concern with him - at 25 he has the skills, pace and size to be a beast of a player all the time but he isn't. I've watched a couple of big Jaguares games this season (not as many as I'd like) - Pachuca vs Jags and Cruz Azul vs Jags and from what I saw, I think he lacks that "killer instinct" that we need to see in a top striker at LFC. He isn't even the top scorer on his own team - 33 yrs old Luis Rey has more goals than him this season.

    But right now possibly the best striker option in Mexico is 28 yr old Aldo De Nigris who has been on fire for Monterrey and the Mexican national team. Have a look at this goal scored recently in the CONCACAF Champs League semifinal. He also has an Italian passport.

    I know you watch the Mexican Primera so would love to hear your thoughts on De Nigris. If I may be honest, I'd rather we paid more and got Damiao, Soladado, Negredo, Cavani or Llorente.

    In south america the only place to make the diference is barsil, but the problem is when the youngs go to europe whit 18 19 20 years, rarely succeed, exceptions Luis Suarez, Cavani Gaston Ramirez, Abel Hernandez, and probably Coates, the others, is not that they have failed is that they didn't been able to consolidate in his teams Nicolas Lodeiro(in Ajax), Jhonatan Urretaviscaya(Benfica), Tabare Viudez(in Milan), Bruno Fornaroli (Sampodria) and there will be more, i'm sure that if Gonzalo stay and consolidates, he will go to a bigger club than Bologna (are talking about an offer from there), who knows maybe even liverpool are watching him

    Tough luck tonight for Defensor Sporting in Copa Libs Group 7. A convincing 3-1 victory over Velez Sarsfield, who had already won the group and booked a passage to the Round of 16, was too little too late for the last Uruguayan team standing in this year's Continental championship. A sharp drop from last year when Penarol made it all the way to the Finals. Chivas had already all but given up hope of qualifying and rolled over to a 5-0 loss against Deportivo Quito. The 4 goals by Quito's Matias Alustiza puts him right behind Dorlan Pabon on the goalscoring leaderboard. Velez with "El Burrito" Juan Manuel Martinez is always dangerous and now that El Tanque Santiago Silva's absence has finally been filled by Mauro Obolo, they are a force again.

    In Group 3 Bolivar (BOL) and Junior (COL) are leading the Chilean clubs - UCatolica and Union Espanola respectively. But neither of the qualifiers from this group should be expected to go very far from here.

    Brazilian Rio, Sao Paulo and Gaucho State Championship Roundup

    Its been a while since I updated everyone with the goings on in the Brazilian State championships but with State Championships moving into the knockout rounds, now's the time to share some updates.

    Rio Championship
    Flamengo may be out of the Copa Lib but their hopes of winning the Taca Rio are alive and well. This coming Sunday's game will be a repeat of February's Taca Guanabara half-season tournament and the Scarlet & Black will have to try and go through Vasco; only this time the game will be at their home stadium - the fantastic Engenhão. In the other semifinal to be played next Saturday, surprise team Bangu, who won Group B over much more fancied Vasco and Fluminense, will host Botafogo.

    Sao Paulo Championship
    The Quarterfinals start this weekend and some interesting games are in the offing.

    Corinthians has played some impressive defense on the way to securing the top seed. Their wins have been low scoring and unexciting but they just know how to flat-out win. And the 8th seeded Black Bridges of Ponte Preta aren't likely to be up for the Corinthian juggernaut. Credit that powerful back 5 led by DM Ralf and CB Leandro Castan.

    #2 seed Sao Paulo should easily prevail against the weak defense of Bragantino's. The addition of Jadson has been great for the team - both he and Luis Fabiano have added maturity and poise to the young guns of SPFC - Lucas, Casimiro and Osvaldo.

    #3 Santos should stroll through the game against Mogo Mirim. Strangely Santos has been quietly getting it done in both the Campeanato and Libertadores but as the knockout stages in both start up - Neymar, Ganso, Arouca and co. have another gear they will move up to.

    After their stellar start to this season's campaign, Palmeiras finished the regular season in 5th place. While Hernan Barcos has definitely improved Palmeiras' attack, its their defense that's let Scolari down this year. Also, there's been a Tinga sighting in the Palmeiras lineup again ! Its been almost a year since the young DM fell out of favor and was sidelined for an extended period of time but his presence should help the Palms back line in their upcoming games; starting against 4th seed Guarani.

    Gauco State
    Gremio and Internacional are on track to face each other. I would recommend watching the Inter game to catch the stellar play of Leandro Damiao and Gremio's young DM - Fernando.

    Do Nacional have to sell though? Are they in financial trouble or can they keep hold of the players they want to keep?

    I don't know if exist some financial trouble, i think that no, and the offer by the two players would be 4million (a gift), it could sell for much more money

    That's exactly what I thought..there is no point in selling your good young talent for cheap to the likes of Bologna when you could sell them for good money to bigger clubs. Bologna are only going to make a profit from the deal down the line when the players move for big money from Bologna to a bigger European club. If there is no financial trouble, it'll be criminal to sell your young talent on the cheap!

    Bueno was extremely impressive last weekend playing on the left wing and showed how quickly he is coming along. To sell him so early to Bologna .... its ridiculous. As Mari stated, he should stay home for a year or two more to sharpen his skills and mature in the safe confines of Nacional. But if he is to be moved - why not consider Liverpool ?! With the quality and reputation of our Academy and given that we have Luis and Seba, he would be right at home and be groomed the "Liverpool Way". And 4m for him and Piriz is ludicrously low. Bueno alone will be worth more if he can keep developing as he is in 2-3 yrs. Plus he has Portuguese nationality so work permits won't be an issue.

    Player Watch
    Speaking of value - I rewatched some of UdeChile's best games in this season's Copa Lib last night; mainly to see how Vargas' replacement, Junior Fernandez was doing. And couldn't believe what I was seeing - 24 yr old Fernandez - a near complete unknown 2 years ago, may be a touch slower than the uber speedy Vargas but his heading ability was, no pun intended, head and shoulders above EV. So much so that with his 5'11" frame, I could even see him playing a true center-forward position; but with the skills on the ground to play a fluid pass and move game. He moved from Palestino to UC for 700K in December 2011 and with Vargas' departure, has made the RF/RW slot his own. Customary warnings about YouTube videos not always telling the ENTIRE story but take a look at this video compilation.

    Of course, we'll all have a chance to watch out for #9 as UChile steamroll their way to a Copa Libertadores SF or Final appearance - on talent and coaching alone, they're one of the teams to beat in the upcoming knockout stage.

    Copa Lib
    Big news is that usually boring Corinthians scored more than a single goal ! They scored 6 in fact to secure 1st place in Group 6. Also in Group 6, Cruz Azul becomes the only Mexican team to make it to the Round of 16. Given their woes in the Primera, they may be putting all their eggs in the proverbial "Copa".

    In Group 4, Fluminense secure 1st place with Riquelme's Boca Juniors in 2nd. Neither team's wins have been particularly impressive so far but the next rounds should bring out the fight in these two - and they do pack a punch !

    Maripacha..I got this from the front page of the LFCTV forum..any more news you can shed upon this?

    “@davidsimpson88: Rodrigo Amaral, Leandro Otormin, Gaston Pereiro and Daniel Baldi, will leave Montevideo on Thursday to train with #LFC.”

    “@davidsimpson88: Amaral, Otormin, Pereiro and Baldi will take part in 10 training sessions at #LFC, before a scheduled return to Uruguay on April 29.”

    “@davidsimpson88: The deal was made possible by clause in Coates' transfer to #LFC which stipulated the Reds would have 1st option on Nacional's young talent.”

    RT, excellent news regarding Bueno then! Does anyone know he's really coming in the summer? I really hope he does as we need anyone who is a half decent striker at virtually all levels of the club..Do you think he'd be able to come off the bench for us next season in games and make a difference or do you think he'd be consigned to the reserves team?

    I really wish we took a punt on Uruguayan talent..we seem to have a good working relationship with Nacional and they produce good talent..we usually overpay for anyone we buy..could be a win win situation for both clubs.

    Edit: How has Fernando been doing for Gremio? I haven't watched them in a while but he stood out every time I have watched them of late.
