    Anyone going to get Paulinho on their kit this year? I am strongly considering it.

    I'm thinking about Holtby, Lennon and Villa (?), although it depends if I like the kit.

    My guess is he will take the 8/6 if Parker/Huddlestone leaves or fight Holtby for the #14.

    Hey, he can speak english, watch this on youtube, best english you will ever hear :302:: watch?v=lUseY6AUXN0

    It was in Tokyo with Corinthians for the clubs world cup. I think when he played in Poland and Lithuania he got used to speak in english, so maybe he wont need a translator.

    Little interview with Paulinho today for Lance journal, i translated the parts you guys maybe are interested in:



    In three years you came from Bragantino to Tottenham and during that time collected some important titles with Corinthians and the National Team...
    Did not expect it so soon. There were good things, and I always went step by step to reach my goals. Bragantino was important because it opened the doors for me to show my work, then the Corinthians, the chance in the National Team, to be champion of the Confederations Cup ... Then life goes on. Now comes new stage in Tottenham.

    Do you think you secured your place in the 2014 World Cup squad with your performance in the Confederations Cup?
    No, still has one year, a lot can change. All players have to do all they can to be on that list of the World Cup. Nobody's guaranteed yet.

    Tottenham is a big club, but it is not known for all brazilians and right now isn't among the biggest clubs in England. Believes it is possible to reach the Champions League and win it playing for them?
    Sure. They have a large group, great players with quality ... We will fight to be on top always, for titles and qualifying for the Champions League, which is our biggest goal.

    Enter the list of the best players in Europe and the world is also a goal for you?
    Not yet, i'll go step by step, do not think about it now. I want to get to Tottenham and show my work, show my value. I think only to adapt as quickly as possible to help the team.

    He's not as big as I thought he was but he looks like an awesome player. I am very excited to see him play.

    Paulinho had his farewell tonight with Corinthians winning another title. He said he will travel to London next week, so it means he wont join the team in the Hong Kong tour.

    Spurs' Lloris hails Paulinho signing
    Tottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris feels the summer signing of Paulinho can inspire the club to Champions League qualification.

    Spurs signalled a statement of intent earlier this month by luring the midfielder from Corinthians for £17 million.

    And Lloris, who signed for the club last summer, believes the 24-year-old's arrival at White Hart Lane proves Spurs are ready to make the step up to the next level.

    So he's back in London? Or would that have been taken when we 1st announced him signing, but the pic was held back due to the new kit.

    This has probably been asked before. But how come he's not included in pre season games, and is he in training?

    He was playing all the way to the final of the confederations-cup and after that had to deal with leaving and his goodbye at Corinthians and than travel to London to sign the contract and stuff, so he got an extended break.

    True, but a Paulinho that's already tired even before the season starts isn't going to help much either. Would have been ideal if he went with pre-season indeed, but with the confederations-cup going all the way to the final for Paulinho, he needs his break more.

    He's probably better off doing nothing at all and just resting on some beach enjoying the sun. I understand that everyone is eager to see Paulinho in action, but a proper vacation is probably what benefits him most.

    Probably but I'd wager that he has plenty to see to getting settled with his family in a new contitent.

    The season in Brazil is different, we start here in January and go all the way to december... the break for the teams and players is in December.. if Paulinho did not have this break now, he would play straight to next june.
