Our first big game of the season.
Until now, we have failed every time we played a big side, so I'm obviously nervous. If we can change that this Saturday, I can see us become a serious contender to the title.

Miccoli is out, thanks to that incredible red card in the last game, and so are Rui Costa, Karagounis and probably Paulo Jorge.

It's still to early to guess how Fernando Santos will play, but I wouldn't be surprised with a more defensive scheme, maybe with Karyaka on the starting 11, and Simão taking Miccoli's role.

I'll update with more info as it gets available.

Ah yes, the annual pilgrimmage up to the North for a showdown at the Dragao. I will be happy with a draw on this occasion and I think Miccoli could've really been the x-factor.

Stupid refs. :thmbdown:

I wouldn't be surprised if you manage to grab a draw at Dragão, especially after watching Porto playing last weekend. However that will not necessarily mean much concerning the title race as last year you managed to beat them twice and look at where you ended up at the end of the league.

Up until last week, I would have said the scheduled Ref for this weekend was the worst in the liga. And that's saying something, considering how bad they all are.

On this account, given this team's desciplinarian issues, expect nothing less than two ejections. My guess - Rocha and Petit. Possibly Queresma on their side.

Looks like Kikin might play from the start!

Well with Rui Costa,Paulo Jorge,Miccoli and possible Karagounis out i don't see many options anyway,maybe Karyaka or Manu.:undecide:

Looks like Paulo Jorge won the race to Kikin Fonseca and we're back to the 433. A more defensive formation, at least on paper.

Less than 17 hours to the game.

Anyone capping this match? I'm not able to watch it live.

I tried creating a BlueSQ account but I wasn't able to since I live in the US.
If anyone could help me out . . . (like with a username / password), I'd truly appreciate it.

in the last 5 / 10mins we've missed two "certain" goals , 1st by kikin and then by paulo jorge, in two sexy moves from our team

very frustrating, but i believe we can get it done
