Hi ed01. Just thought I would ask for you to do a report on Adriano. When I watched him for those 5 seasons in Italy I thought he was a Ronaldo on steroids. How good was he in his peak and what went wrong?

{Ed001's Note - I have added it to the to do list for you mate. It is odd his name just cropped up a few days ago with some discussion of just how brilliant he was for a short period.}

Agree0 Disagree1

He was jaw dropping good. It was funny because I remember playing PES and you could score from anywhere with him! Completely overpowered. He just seem to disappear. Yes will be looking forward to that Ed.

{Ed001's Note - he was insanely good for a very short period. Big shame that it never lasted.}

I watched few documentaries about him and how his career and lofe had the worst turn when his father passed away, as reports say they were very close, and sfter his father death he got so depressed and couldn’t concentrate on football any longer and moved back to brazil and joined a gang and gained so much wait.

Good info that Moe mate and a very good reminder to us all that footballers are just like the rest of us if you strip away the money and fame.
We all struggle at times with different things and none of us are immune from human emotions and at the toughest times we all need good people around us far more than fame or wealth.

A fair few Brazilians seem to of declined hard and fast.

During the 2014 world cup a Brazilian coach said because many young Brazilian players are born into terrible poverty and football can be an escape route for them but once they hit a level of financial security they seem to stop progressing. I guess you have to have lived their lives to fully understand why and how it happens.

Ronaldinho also in truth fits into that bracket! Only a few good seasons (or exceptional seasons) . Kaká also.
