Campeonato Paulistao Standings | Fixtures | Past Positions
- Fantastic run in the 2nd half of the State Championships meant that we finished in a very strong 5th position. Unfortunately, we lost
a very entertaining game in the Quarter-Finals against Palmeiras.

- A great season overall, and we managed to avoid relegation with a couple games to spare. Highlights of the season include decisive victories over Corinthians
and league champions Gremio
Copa do Brasil -
As usual, we exit the competition at the second round, this time to Golas on penalties
- We made several transfers to strengthen the squad. And some worked out while others didn't.
- He was healthy the whole season and played in all the league excluding the ones he was suspended for. Lethal from the air as well with 8 goals
- I loaned him back for another 2 seasons and compared to last season he really improved a lot
- On loan from parent club Flamengo, he was a starter for the whole season and was a steady contributor
- Signed on a free, he has a bright future and had a fantastic season with the U23's/U20's.
- he had a solid season with 9 goals after coming back home from Tolima in Colombia, where he average a goal every other game in 2 seasons (30 goals, 12 assists in 59 league games).
- another player signed from Colombia, this time from Millonarios, where he scored 32 goals in 54 league games. Unfortunately, he only scored twice while mostly coming off the bench and he won't be coming back next season.
- an injury crisis at striker meant I started Koffi in his first league game. Unfortunately that game he tore his calf muscle and missed the rest of the season.
- I made the 26 year old the highest paid player on the team (and with a Match Highest Earner clause, he will be the highest paid player in the future too) but only managed 3 goals and 5 assists in 18 games. Hopefully a full season with him will help him settle.
This is definitely a squad that needs to be improved for next season.
Team MVP - Luisinho Paulista
- my leading scorer, and all 12 of his goals were important ones!
Overview | Facilities | Finances | Affiliations
- Finish in the top 13 next season to qualify for at least the Copa Sudamericana
- Home field advantage in the State Championships (top 4 finish)
- Spend some money! Because this squad can't last through another season if there aren't enough improvements.
- We need better players on permanent contracts. We have to improve the entire squad if we want to get to where we want to be
- I have one year left on my contract. I don't want to sign a new one in January as I want to take a wait and see approach to see if this squad can improve. If not, I will leave Brazil in 2015. Hopefully there's an opening at a MLS club.
