I merged it with the pre-season thread, while pointing out the game against Chelsea within the title as it is the highlight obviously

I am looking forward to this one actually ... hope it's gonna be an enjoyable football-event for everyone involved. I'm particularely interested how Mourinho will be wellcomed back in Lisbon, especially in such friendly-atmosphere.

Please, just a note. It's not "Da Luz" or "Stadium of Light". It's Estádio da Luz.

estádio is portuguese for stadium, so saying stadium would be correct if one is writing in english

i do agree the word Luz shouldnt be translated though...

so it would be enough to say : at Luz, or eventually at Luz stadium or Stadium of Luz

ps: i hope mourinho will be welcomed with many friendly goals on Cech's net

So I take it you'll be sitting behind the visiting coaches box Ana?

LOL Good to see you haven't changed your views on the "special one" after all these years.
