But that is the recommendation right?



A cousin of the jeitinho is malandragem. Malandragem is the black sheep of the jeitinho family. “Deeper linkages...were being made between Brazilian football and the lifestyle and culture of the malandro. The malandro was a stock figure of Brazilian culture – the hustler, the street smart, an urban warrior living on his wits and charm,” writes Goldblatt.

Fascia Tension 


Rebellian Mindset


Marinho was echoing the anthropologist Gilberto Freyre, who in 1938 wrote that “our style of football seems to contrast with the European style because of a set of characteristics such as surprise, craftiness, shrewdness, readiness and I shall say individual brilliance and spontaneity, all of which express our mulattoism. Our passes…our tricks…that something which is related to dance, to capoeira (the Afro-Brazilian mixture of dance and martial art), mark the Brazilian style of football, which rounds and sweetens the game the British invented, the game which they and the other Europeans play in such an acute and angular way.”


It starts with that audacious style of play – the feints and dummies, the shimmies and nutmegs, the chapéus (literally meaning “hat,” in soccer the word means to flick the ball over an opponent’s head), the joy – Garrincha-esque – taken not just in winning, but in humiliating defenders, just a little, while doing it, and making the crowd gasp.


Soccer as art. Futebol-arte. The interesting thing is that no Brazilian soccer player ever thought about futebol-arte when out on the fieldonly writers and commentators. The soccer players, many of them poor, thought about futebol-showing off, or futebol-standing out from the crowd. Because showing off and standing out from the crowd got you noticed. Showing off and standing out from the crowd got you a contract.


 Garrincha had the jeitinho, the Brazilian way of getting things done even when there seemed no way to get them done, creative, improvising, a little bit dodgy, a little bit unsafe, but that worked, most of the time. Many Brazilians, particularly the more elevated social classes, like to tut-tut at the jeitinho. But deep in their hearts they are proud of it, even if subconsciously, even if they will not admit it, like New Yorkers are secretly proud of their city’s abrasiveness. Because it is what makes Brazilians different, it is what makes them special.



A Survival Strategy

Neymar, putting the ball through an opponent’s legs, pirouetting, even, on occasion, going back and beating an already humiliated opponent again just for the hell of it, has the jeitinho. Correction. Neymar doesn’t have the jeitinho. Neymar is the jeitinho. Neymar’s goal for Santos against a Flamengo side that included that other sorcerer of the dark arts of Brazilian soccer, Ronaldinho, in 2011, had the jeitinho written all over it. 



Skills and dribbling is based of respect. Without respect of the game - Dribbling can not express itself. Dribbling is not something you teach yourself. Dribbling is something subconsous inherent do to it ability to escape - pretect prevent and attention.

One last caveat. The Neymar generally referred to in this text is the Neymar of Santos and of his early days with Brazil. The Neymar whose play was cheeky, imaginative and creative, at times irresponsible in its showmanship. Those qualities still remain, but since his move to Barcelona he has become more efficient, arguably more effective, stronger, more direct and disciplined. This is the Neymar most people see today – a fusion of Latin American individuality and European efficiency. When Brazilian soccer fans think of Neymar, however, they think of the younger, maverick Neymar. 


Flow state. Confident. Bending the rules. He who has the ball controls the game.
