thank u josh


only had the chance to watch the 2nd half, but heard the 1st one on the radio

what can i say...very poor game overall, quite slow from both teams, but obviously a lot more was expected from Benfica.

as far as i'm concerned there is no controversy from the penalty scored by Maritimo, nor by the fact that we werent given a penlaty as i dont think Lima was touched

its hard to believe, from the way we've played, that we have been training at all since the holidays, and hard to understand how after so many pre-season games we aren't able to play with any logic as a team....also disappointing the lack of speed displayed by most players, and the lack of hunger for the victory

a lot of work is left to be done, this Benfica was a shadow of itself

Porto 1-0 down at HT, PK + red card and easy win in the end.

How predictable...

nothing new there lobito....has been going on like that for the past 20 years or so

regardless, we have to play fairly decent if we want to win the title at all

Fair play Anocas, fair play :thmbup: I wish I could say the same about those two muppets that commentated the game for SportTv. They were so bewildered with the loss that they couldn't stop talking about how "controversial" was that last minute dive by Lima.

Guys what do you know about Salvio leaving Benfica for Zenit?

Numerous different reports saying we have agreed whatever fee you wanted for him after a week of prolonged talks.

Was he fit to play this evening?

its why they only lost 1 league match in 3 seasons,
no coincidence it coincides when Benfica became a bigger threat to the title, whenever Porto is on shaky grounds the Grande Artistas are there to bail them out.

I fear it will be a very easy championship for a Porto side I think is the weakest of the last few years, Benfica looks out of sorts and losing today is probbaly already a death sentence.

Sporting had a good game today but next week against academica the refs will do everything they can to slow us down and bring porto back to the top of the league as quickly as possible

We don't need to pay a cent to ensure Sporting aren't a threat for the title.

You do a great job of that all on your own.

Sporting has a very good team,
we just lack superstars like varela and lica on the wings, josue, and defour, and the old man lucho and the great keeper Helton.

I'm sorry, are you calling them bad players?

That great keeper Helton has won as many Portuguese league titles (7) as your club has in the past 48 years. :dielaugh:

yes I am acrually, but Porto main players are Capela, Jorge Sousa and the like.

yes and you will win yet another this season. If not I guess we wont be seeing you around here, like you disappeared for months when benfica was in first place, then came back when Porto won. Bandwagoner, hope you feel good when you tuck yourself into bed at night with your FC Porto pajamas and Real Madrid Blanket.

That was an awful showing. Too early to be throwing in the towel, although the defeated look on JJ's face wasn't particularly exuding confidence/uplifting. The team does not defend well at all. Matic appears to be somewhere else already.

you guys really need to get rid of JJ, his cycle has come to an end IMO

hope you had fun laughing at Sporting these last few years, I think our fortunes will go in opposite direction from here on out. We got rid of Godinho and the Roquettes, but no sign LFV is leaving anytime soon.

spending obscene amounts of money on random serbians and the like
is akin to just putting duct tape on the leak on the sinking ship.

Hope springs eternal, but maybe, just maybe, your lagarto crystal ball might be a bit tilted.

Ui Ui Ui, I come back here and see the usual suspects..... first things first, we played better than Maritimo but couldn't put the game away, silly mistakes, consecutive games letting goals in and a team that didn't seem sure of itself still dealing with last year's ghosts, tough start.

VS Gil:

Dominated the game, 2 shots, one goes in. Bench comes in and does well. Our wingers are horrible crossers, Salvio as good as he is not a guy that goes down the line and puts the ball in the perfect spot for someone to tap in, Sulejmani on the other hand showed that he can cross very well, Markovic..... Beast so far, hope he keeps it up.

Vs Sporting:

Sporting came on top of us as expected, played very well and pressured high, that calls for a lot of physical demand which showed in the second half, goal shouldn't have been allowed but it was close and the bad call is accepted, Markovic shows that he's in very good form and creates two good chances, Patricio does a great job on the first but could not stop our prodigy on the second.
PK on Cardozo should have been called as well since contact is to be expected but Mauricio hugged the Paraguayan locking fingers lol, bad call in my opinion.
Montero, good little rat, saw him play in the MLS, looks like you found a subfor Liedson, congrats.
In the end i felt that we could have done more but a tie in the Derby when the other team was perfect isn't that bad.
Sporting overall, BDC has been doing an excellent job getting rid of the evil caused by previous presidents but I'm afraid that i do not see your squad as a title contender, perhaps a good 3rd place finish because both Benfica and Porto have better squads, 3rd place will get you into CL territory which means a lot of $$$$$

Porto: New season, new foul outside the box for a penalty, Jackson pushing the defender and heading in the ball, seems like you're 100% in stride and playing to your full capabilities.

Overall i still think we have the best team on paper, hope that we can put this new Serbian "Feijao" at 6, move Matic to 8, Enzo to the Wing and be ok with Salvio's injury.

Oblak and Bruma = failed attempt from their reps to make money, these guys should be banned from the sport, I just don't know why.

Porto will lose points, we just need to start playing like we can, Cortez is a joke defending btw.
