Tonight, I’d say just about anything is possible. Really. Palmeiras could crash completely or defeat Grêmio 3-0. There’s simply no telling. Personally, I don’t believe in any “normal” result, I believe we’ll see extremes, good or bad. To all the warriors that are entering the stands at the Olímpico stadium tonight, cheering Palmeiras forward, my DEEPEST respect.
Keeping up the positive spirit, here’s a rundown of (at least not negative) events that haven’t been treated in this space before:
Saint Marcos has set a date for his farewell game, and a very suitable one: 12.12.2012. Opponents are yet to be chosen.
Centreback Henrique has signed with Palmeiras for the coming five years. The deal was actually announced already in late March but was formalised only recently due to internal processes at Barcelona; apparently the directors were questioned regarding the fact that Henrique was sold to Palmeiras for considerably less than the purchase amount back in 2008.
Marcos Assunção has launched his personal website, check it out on http://marcosassuncao20.com.br
And wrapping things up for tonight, the suspect of the express kidnapping/hijacking of Valdivia and his wife Daniela has already been identified and arrested by the São Paulo police.
