brazil. not sure about the relegation system that is used in argentina (brought in i believe to help boca stay up!)

No way! That's awful that is. Imagine if your team went down instead of Boca that year. You'd be fuming! If that happened to Everton, my rage could be seen from SPACE!

Corruption is rife in the game it seems...

pretty sure that was the reason, got brought up when river went down. don't know too much about the argentine league but it seems a world away from ours - especially when it comes to the fans.

up until recently (when they were forced to change it) if the team was losing and the fans rioted and they could get the game postponed and replayed. the ultra groups or bavas bravas, also have way too much of a say & control within clubs.

EDIT: here is a bit on it:

Here is Stracq's goal from last week.

On initial look, it seems quite scrappy, but after the replay it seems like a really good finish - the ball bounces up and he shapes his body to chest it downwards and he volleys it fiercely into the net before it even touches the ground!

Translation of the article below:

Stracqualursi: "We lost good"

BUENOS AIRES - The San Lorenzo striker Denis Stracqualursi, did not hide his distaste for the defeat his team suffered this afternoon before Velez Sarsfield (1-2) for the 8th. Initial date of the match and said he retired with the New Gasometer anger "because we do not play anything."

"I leave with a lot of anger because in the second half we did not play anything. Well lost," he said, with remarkable candor, rafaelino striker, former Tiger.

"On Monday (in the return to training of Cyclone) we make a thorough self-criticism. Need to work hard for the next match with Racing," said Stracqualursi.

In reference to the module selected by coach Ricardo Caruso Lombardi to play this afternoon against Velez, the striker declared: "Today we played catch (Alan Ruiz). Both Jara But just as we did not get me the ball."

In tune similar, Martin Rolle expanded the concept and said: "It is not about playing catch or not. There are many teams that play no defined link and generate many scoring maneuvers." Similarly , Martin Rolle expanded the concept and said: "It is not about playing catch or not. There are many teams that play no defined link and generate many scoring maneuvers."

Talk this week is of San Lorenzo playing more attack-minded with a third striker playing behind Denis and his partner Franco Jara. The Cyclones have a young player by the name of Alan Ruiz coming through the ranks who may get a run in the first team to see if this formation will result in a more attractive, attacking style of play.
Ruiz is with the Argentine U20 squad at the moment and is described as a playmaker.

Could he be the key to more chances and more goals for the big man? Let's hope so!

You cannot improve upon perfection. He is built to terrorise defenders. If you want to terrorise someone would you rather look like Stracq or Justin Bieber?

San Lorenzo's poor run continued with a 0-0 draw with Godoy Cruz.

The Firecracker is yet to light the fuse it seems with only 3 goals in 10 appearances. Come on Denis lad!

And here is his letter - shamelessly pinched from the OS:

Denis Stracqualursi says playing at Goodison Park was a ‘beautiful dream’ and that he was truly humbled by the support he received.

The Argentine target man spent last season on loan with the Blues before returning home to seal a move to San Lorenzo.

His soul-baring honesty on the pitch made him a firm favourite and he admits that the backing from the stands meant a great deal to him.

“Playing in that stadium was like a beautiful dream and something which I will never forget,” the striker told evertonfc.com.

“I will be grateful all my life for the kindness with which I was treated. Some of the nicest things that happened in my life happened there.

“The year at Everton was the best year of my career and I will never forget those amazing fans.”

It wasn’t just at Goodison that Stracqualursi was appreciated.

David Moyes never shied away from praising his work ethic – something that also made him popular with his teammates.

The striker feels he learnt a great deal during his year on Merseyside and believes he is a far better player for the experience.

“I loved my time there and I enjoyed every single training session,” he explained. “I was surrounded by top, top players who were all really nice guys as well and they all helped me to feel part of the group.

“I was also lucky to have a great manager in David Moyes and I learnt so much from him.

“He is also a great person and he was always really straight with me and told me exactly what he was thinking.

“It was something which was really useful while I was there and something that will really help me in my future career.”

The hard work on the training pitch led to 28 first-team appearances as the Blues finished seventh in the Premier League and reached the semi-final of the FA Cup.

Stracqualursi played his part in the cup run, netting in the earlier rounds against Fulham and Blackpool, but the undoubted highlight of his spell was a crucial goal to clinch a 2-0 league victory over Chelsea at Goodison Park.

“Scoring that goal was the sweetest thing that happened and I felt a huge rush of emotion as a result of all the effort I had put in to reach that moment,” explained the 24-year-old.

“Reaching the semi-final of the FA Cup was fantastic as well and again highly emotional when you consider all the work the squad had put in to get there.”

Now Stracqualursi is looking forward to a fresh challenge in Buenos Aires with San Lorenzo – one of the big teams of Argentine football.

He does, however, admit he was a little disappointed not to remain on Merseyside.

“My ambitions with San Lorenzo are to win the league as it is a massive club in Argentina – and at the same time to score a lot of goals,” he said.

“It was disappointing [not to stay at Everton] because I had given my all and I would have liked to have stayed there for many years.

“I would love to come back to England and even more so to come back to Everton. The reason is because of all the lovely memories and how well I was treated by the supporters.

“My family absolutely loved living in Liverpool. We enjoyed being at the ground and all the people there – it was a great life experience for all of us.

“I really love Everton and will always have a soft spot for the place. I send all my best wishes to the Club and its supporters for the new season.”

Still trucking along with just two goals in what is now 10 games, but as this excerpt from an article from Argentinian website Telam shows, his manager is still keeping faith with Our Denis due to his excellent attitude and work-rate:

"San Lorenzo coach Juan Antonio Pizzi, acknowledged today that "the lack of scoring" is one of the main shortcomings of the team, which is in the relegation zone, and striker Denis Stracqualursi supported by noting that he "will make many " they need.
"The lack of scoring is a reality, the numbers reflect it. It's hard to have good results with six goals in 11 games, "explained Pizzi under a press conference after morning practice.
However, the former coach of Rosario Central centrodelantero publicly supported the team and Denis Stracqualursi, who scored two goals in ten games played in the tournament.
"I have no doubt that Stracqualursi will make the goals we need. Everything you need to do when you're go through a losing streak he does: endeavors, does not give up, generates situations," he explained."
