Greetings Kankas and Kankies.
As a follow-up to my blog yesterday `THE SOUTH AMERICAN QUESTION – ARGENTINA AND BRASIL WHERE ARE YOU ?` I think I didn’t do Argentina justice by omitting some up-to-date information about their league.
At the moment, there are 5 famous clubs in the Top 6 positions, and these names just roll off the tongue to footie fanatiks, eg,
Boca Juniors, Independiente, River Plate, Estudiantes and Racing Club.
Granted, the league is only 5 weeks old, as opposed to Brasil (Brasil is spelt with an SSSSSS for Oz Kanka’s education !!!) which is in its 22nd week.
Notwithstanding, I’m sure all those famous clubs from both countries will be in there at the end fighting it out for the silverware. Perhaps our visitors to the blog from South America will keep us updated ???
One last snipit. You will recall that I mentioned in my previous blog that the British Expats introduced footie to Argentina and assisted them to set-up their league. Well, would you believe that there is a team called ARSENAL sitting in 10th position in the league ??!!
Hey, that would make a good footie quiz question if Mr Rob Dix reads this blog !!!
All the best from South American Footie Lover, Eski Kanka Jim
