In the beginning of the season Fyssas played more often than Dos Santos. Although he was defensive, Miguel was in form on the right-back, showing his very offensive style. But then Miguel got some injuries and Dos Santos also replaced Fyssas on the left. This way, Dos Santos was more offensive than the right-back (João Pereira) and when Miguel returned from injury, not completely treated, he played with many cautions.
Luisão and Ricardo Rocha (centre-backs) don't have specific orders to play deep or pushed up. They play according to the team's current strategy.
The dm's, especially M.Fernandes, attacked a bit.
It's hard to say which position do the attacking midfielders play because they are not exact all the time. Simão is a winger who usually goes into the middle but so is Geovanni. The attacking midfielder centre, Nuno Assis, had some troubles to do the playmaking and his solution was to stick himself next to the forward Nuno Gomes, where he had no phyisique to make his presence.
