    You are Argentine... Watch a lot of Brasilian action and claim it to be the most entertaining!! So I thought you wanted people to acknowledge that again using the fact that the players there are generally local ones

    I actually was just curious as i expect it to be much lower then the others... there are still alot of foreigners in both leagues though... argentines are running rampant in brasil these days

    Well the Irish are foreigners, and the Scots, Northern Irish and Welsh are from a football perspective if the consideration is the interests of the national team.

    the money is a bit better.. and its a great way to really challenge yourself as you will get a bit of abuse... carlitos, masch, maxi lopez, Conca, Andres D'alessandro, matis de federico just to name a few that have found success in brasil.... but somehow the opposite never happens... they cant handle Argentine... omg i Cant imagine if someone like kaka tried to play in Argentina... he would be stabbed...

    Portugal is understandable because Brazilians go there because they feel more comfortable and they don't need to learn a new language

    Well that puts a different perspective on things, because I could quite imagine a large chunk of that percentage being from those countries.


    Still it wouldn't surprise me if that percentage did not include the UK players.
