No joke - Neymar and co will be hard to beat
A horse walks into a bar.
The barman thinks about asking him why the long face, but decides that's too obvious so quizzes him about who he thinks the best player in the world is.
The horse replies: "Neeeeighhhh. Ma."
The barman says: "What, you're telling me your mum is a better footy player than Ronaldo or Messi?"
Hmm, think that one still needs a bit of work, but at the very least I'm convinced that the best name for a horse at the moment is Neighmar.
I'm treating the opening day of the Olympic men's footy as a watching brief but I'm confident about my outright fancy.
I just can't see much to put me off Brazil, even though the class on show from Spain and Uruguay is impressive.
Never mind the Olympics, more or less this Samba Stars team is supposed to win the World Cup in two years and although there's huge scope for development, I doubt they'd be a million miles away if you played the tournament tomorrow.
Can I see Neymar and co getting beat? Neeeeeeigggggghhhh!
