The people ask to me why I am torcedor of Athletical, since I am person from de state of espirito santo. I answer with the same question. you, why twist for vasco, botafogo, fluminemse or flamengo? The simple reply and: soccer in the Espirito Santo does not exist. Teamses with a little of tradition in the capital, Rio Branco and Desportiva, had arrived tie to close the doors. In it I finish Brazilian championship it was the state represented in series D for Sao Mateus and was in I finish place.

I initiated to twist for the Rooster for I influence of familiar and also why in mnha city alone caught the signal of the TV Itacolomi, of Minas Gerais. He passed the games of the mining championship and I started to live deeply the atleticoxcruzeiro rivalry. At the time the Athletical one had a very good teams and was hexa champion miner: of 1977 the 1982. In 1977 the Athletical one was capable to be runner-up Brazilian invicto. It lost in the penaltis for the So Paulo. If was championship of run points, as and today, the Rooster would have been champion many rounds before.

It added 14 points more than the So Paulo, but the match was in the system of groups and kill-kills. In the year of 1980 the athletical one came back to be runner-up, but flagrantly stolen in maracana, I decide having it taken the heading of the miners and data to flamengo. The teams of twisted greater of Brazil, flamengo, not yet had been champion Brazilian, who had beginning in 1971. The great teamses who had gained brasileirao were athletical, palms, vasco, the International and So Paulo. Guarani also was champion. It had a great pressure for flamengo to take the heading. In the end the Rooster gained in mineirao the first departure for 1×0.
