2008/09 Futebol Clube do Porto European Thread

We've been drawn with:

Arsenal (ENG)
Fenerbahce (TUR)
Dynamo Kyiv (UKR)

Looks like we'll progress again. Maybe not first place like last year, but second place.

I'll predict, like last season(and correct), that we'll take at the minimum 10 of 12 points from the Fener and Kyiv games, like we did with Marseille and Besiktas.

We should roll over Dynamo, and we proved we can win in Istanbul last fall. The key match might be when we host Arsenal.

kleber, don't start. You've been proven wrong in this Porto forum so often that we can't keep count. Keep 'em coming with the laughable predictions. Tell me Kyiv aren't going to finish dead last in the group. Tell me Kyiv aren't going to get rolled by Futebol Clube do Porto.

P&G: I suspect the games against Arsenal won't even matter as long as we get 10 of 12 from the other four games. A draw at the Dragao would be nice, just like we did with Liverpool who have far more European pedigree. I think we're sitting comfortable with this draw.

We were robbed in 1987 by a gay ref,we will not lose against Porto in Kyiv,that's is sure.

Porto is very weak this season without a decent full back and a right back.

Right, right, right... yet you'll be 5 points back already after week 2 of the league.

You should probably be banned from this forum after you were such a coward last season and didn't take your avatar bet when Benfica got drubbed.

I like the title of this thread. There is a hint of UEFA Cup in it. Very plausible.

I think Porto will progress 2nd, but only if they can beat Fenerbahce away in Turkey

Even if we finish dead last, which will not happen, there is no one who can laugh at our European pedigree. We've single handily keep the Portuguese league co-eff points up.

17 September--Fenerbahce
30 [email protected] Arsenal
21 October--Dynamo Kyiv
5 [email protected] Dynamo Kyiv
25 [email protected] Fenerbahce
10 December--Arsenal

We play Arsenal on Matchday's 2 and 6--same as in 2006--so we just need to take the maximum 6 points off of the Ukranian side like we did against Hamburg that year. The match in Istanbul against Fenerbahce should be fun to watch, though.

Let me have another go; Even if we finish dead last, which will not happen, there is no one who can laugh at our European pedigree. We've almost single handily represented the Portuguese league with decent results in the Champions League in the past few years.

This is the official UEFA ranking for 2009. I know truth hurts sometimes. :smileani:

As our league takes this weekend off, we find ourselves facing Fenerbahce in the first fixture of the CL this upcoming week.

Mariano has fully recovered after being out for 2 weeks from Hulk's free-kick. p The three Portuguese internationals(Bruno Alves, Raul Meireles, Daniel Candeias[U-21]) are all back, and the South American internationals(Lisandro, Rodriguez, Guarin, Fucile) arrive tomorrow.

It looks like, along with Tarik back, we'll have a full squad to choose from aside from Fucile who is suspended since last year's sending off against Schalke.

Rolando looks to have already taken the place of captain Pedro Emanuel, and Jesualdo apparently prefers young Fernando at DM right now over all of Guarin, Tomas Costa, Bolatti, and Pele. The spot in the air will be the right winger role, where either of Tarik or Mariano could occupy it, or Lisandro could go to the right for Hulk or Farias to play as striker.

Should be a great game.

Look at your 2005/2006 season.p

We are the most reliable club,since Sporting will lose their 04/05 ranking next season we are going to be the portuguese team with best chances in the cl beacuse we are going to pot 2.

We are the hope of portuguese football in the champions league.
