Tim Vickery in South America

I was talking to an American recently who got into soccer as a result of watching Ronaldinho at his extraordinary best -- which seems a long time ago. Now he is not sure whether to feel angry with the player for spending so long betraying his own almost unparalleled talent, or grateful that for a few years Ronaldinho hit a peak of performance that few have ever matched.

It is a dilemma which will be familiar to fans of Flamengo, Ronaldinho's current club, and one which may be solved one way or the other during the course of the Brazilian championship, which kicks off this weekend.
