INFO:

Domingos Antônio da Guia (born in Rio de Janeiro, November 19, 1912 – dead in Rio, May 18, 2000), nicknamed the "the Divine Master" was a Brazilian footballer. He is regarded as one of the greatest players in Flamengo and Corinthians history, as well as the all time best Brazilian defender.

He quickly rose to fame as one of Bangu's key players (central defender) between 1929-1932. Despite the fact Bangu had a history of fielding black players (Francisco Carregal was the first in 1905) Domingos might have witnessed racism in football . After Bangu, Domingos moved to Uruguay's Nacional de Montevideo for a season, before brief periods at Vasco da Gama (Brazil), Boca Juniors (Argentina) and then finding a home at Rio giants Flamengo (1937-1943). A brief spell at Corinthians left Domingos to return to his beloved Bangu where he stay until he retired in 1948.

Domingos also enjoyed a successful international career, getting 30 caps for Brazil. He came to the world's attention in the 1938 FIFA World Cup finals, where he was the linchpin of Brazil's defence. Domingo's son Ademir da Guia also played for Bangu 1959-1961 before becoming at idol at São Paulo's Palmeiras.

Quote:
Considerado como el mejor defensa brasileño de la historia y el primero en tomar riesgos e innovar en su posición.
Por su forma de jugar supuso una revolución en el fútbol ya que a Domingos no le quemaba el balón, le gustaba llevarlo pegado al pie y jamás daba un balonazo para sacárselo de encima (conducta habitual hasta entonces en los defensas), todo un espectáculo.
Por si fuera poco era un defensa sólido y consistente.
Él despreciaba la velocidad. Jugaba en cámara lenta, maestro del suspenso, gozador de la lentitud: se llamó DOMINGADA el arte de salir del área a toda calma, como él hacía, desprendiéndose de la pelota sin correr y sin querer, porque le daba pena quedarse sin ella. Por esta peculiar forma de jugar se le llegó a conocer también como el Hitchcock del fútbol, por el suspense que creaban sus recortes en su propio área.

Isn't his Response too low? Comparing him with other defenders of his generation (1930's all stars for example), is the worst defender in terms of RES now.

Most of them should get too a similar downgrade to fit him..There's no way that they should have defensive skills comparable to the Serie A of 80's or 90's

Maybe, but downgrade his RES from 95 to 82 isn't a bit too harsh for him? Btw, the downgrade in his other stats seems razonable.

Not actually, those stats were very outdated and when we review again the info we found that he didn't really deserved such high values at RES..

For what I read he was slow but reliable in defence, maybe 85 fit more for him (I think that 10 points of downgrade is enough). Although he is a player from the 1930's and 1940's, he is one of the best brazilian center backs ever and was awarded as the best defender in the 1938 World Cup.

I agree, but some members don't agree as you can see. Whatever I do, somebody is unhappy and than "dictatorship" issues start floating on the site..

Anyway we updated Janes on RES 83 and I clearly see him better there. And many other defenders from that era you were mentioning, are not updated yet. Some of them should also get now significant decrease in some stats, especially Quincoces..

About Domingos, I saw just the texts highlighting his technical skills and dribbling, calmness on the ball and even playmaking, but not some spectacular defending..

Yeah, the 90 in DEF is rather a tribute for been named the "greatest brazilian defender"..

Ok, I will wait for the updates in the other players. My only fear is that the old legends start getting too bad comparing him to contemporary legends. In my opinion, the football has improved specially in the physical part, but not so much in the technical part. Maybe is more understandable with veeeery old legends (1900's and 1910's) but no with 1930's and 1940's legends. But it's my point of view, someone can have a different opinion, obviusly :D

Don't get angry! Haha :mrgreen: But yes, I think the same. For me some 1930's legends are technically good as some 1980's legends. Maybe they are inferior in physical aspects (trainings and technologies improved, football is quicker, etc) but not in his technique.

Rather remove Tactical Dribble for Dribbling, his style wasn't exactly holding or spending too much time with the ball like T. Dribble suggest, plus he liked to 'dribble his way out of the defensive line', usually meaning *Dribbling, you know, like Lucio.
