Brazil have quite some way to go to attempt to make amends for this years world cup disaster. The 7-1 loss to Germany pretty much devalued every player on the pitch so badly that memes of Mourinho's hands full of cash and laughing hit the web insinuating his pleasure at selling off David Luiz pre World Cup.
Thanks to Adidas Football I became part of something very special - I was given 8 World Cup tickets to give away to total strangers... Our Argentina fans turned to the camera and said "Thank you, it was a dream - not quite the perfect dream but a dream all the same. I will never forget this."
Brazilians turned their shirts inside out. Many left the Minerão stadium at half time. By the fifth goal Brazil fans were applauding Germany... In the grand scheme of things there were many problems but here are my three key factors as to why we lost so badly.
This year's world cup has been exceptional on so many levels - almost to the point that it's sad to see any of the teams go; couldn't we just let the World Cup go on for a little bit longer this year? ...

'Boxing is like a drug' McKenzie explains 'luckily I'm a realist otherwise I'd also he back in the ring. I've accepted I'm past my sell by date' whereas 'Hatton can't leave it alone he's blinded by the light - more money than sense, the motivation is definitely not financial - Hatton is stubborn, its his way or no way, he's not listening to anyone'
In one of the most sensational transfer stories of F1's history Lewis Hamilton has announced that he is to leave McLaren after fifteen years and move to Mercedes, who have offered him a three year deal beginning at the start of the F1 season 2013.
This desperation for fame is flooding football, as if the money they earn isn't enough, so many sport stars crave front page stories. Clearly it's not for the pounds and not necessarily for the women, these guys have more money and women then they can handle.
The Paralympic closing ceremony has finished. London 2012 is over and the Olympic flame is undoubtedly already covered in glitter, doused in caipirinha and in between a dancers butt cheeks as it makes it's merry way to Rio.
I'm intrigued by the athletes we so quickly forget. The ones who spent the last four years sacrificing with one goal in mind... and missed.
The opening ceremony was a spectacular welcome to the athletes that have been sponsored by their nations and sent over to represent their best. Of all the changes and education of the last four years it was the athletes parade that gave us the greatest example of change. 4200 athletes have arrived to compete from 164 nations, more than ever before.
