Santos look like their in trouble, their a big team that might get relegated! It is a pity people can't watch a lot of matches from Brazil, but what do you expect with the time zones, and the fact that Europe has lots of leagues, people can't find the time to keep up with all these leagues, I am going to try and 'follow' the MLS, Brazilian and Argentine leagues, I watch highlights of MLS a lot, their games are on late, so have no choice really, but I'll start to do the same with the other 2 leagues and see how I like them, you never know I might get hooked!

I don't think Santos will be relegated. Santos played 2 games less than the other teams (the team is 2 games behind the others). I believe Santos will recover in the championship, and at the end will be among the first 12 teams.

About the time zones, it should be really hard to anyone in Europe to watch the matches in Brazil, but there are many matches on Sundays at 4 PM local hour in Brazil, that's Sunday night in Europe (between 6 PM and 9 PM, depending on the country).
