First official game of the season tomorrow as we travel to tiny Mata Real to face Pacos Ferreira. Always a tough game in their stadium.

We beat them 2-0 last week to win the Portuguese Super Cup, but I expect a tougher game tomorrow with the season kicking off.

Jesualdo has named the squad for the game.

GK: Helton, Beto
DF: Jorge Fucile, Nuno Andre Coelho, Rolando, Bruno Alves, Alvaro Pereira
MF: Fernando, Raul Meireles, Fernando Belluschi, Tomas Costa, Fredy Guarin, Diego Valeri
FW: Mariano Gonzalez, Ernesto Farias, Silvestre Varela, HULK, Radamel Falcao

Cristian Rodriguez and Orlando Sa are still injured. The rest... Nuno Espirito Santo, Cristian Sapunaru, Miguel Lopes, Maicon, Nelson Benitez, and Sebastian Prediger were not called.

pun, Farias the goal machine will likely start.

He has scored in all but 2 games he has started for Futebol Clube do Porto. Incredible ratio.

I don't think I'll forgive him for his miss against Manchester United at the Dragao last season anytime soon.

Falcao might not start, but he'll get game time. Soon enough they'll be the starting players with Cebola.

I agree with you. Falcao will be in there very soon, but for tomorrow it'll be Farias. He's red hot and has scored both times he's played in the Mata Real.

Just got in the house, we're already losing 1-0 in the 30th minute. Man this stadium is cursed or something, it's so hard for us to win at Mata Real. Lots of time left though, but we need to wake up.

Raul Meireles got hurt in the 1st half, and has been subbed now at half-time for Falcao. We've switched from a 4-3-3 to a 4-4-2 with Falcao and Farias up front. I hope Raul Meireles isn't hurt too bad, he's our engine.

Well, we're done for this game now.

Hulk sent off for a second yellow, we're down to 10 men, down 1-0, and Pacos are falling all over the floor wasting time now.

This will finish in a loss for us, I'm sure of it.

Yup, and with Cebola still injured, Orlando Sa still injured, Falcao just getting integrated, and Jesualdo's insistence of Mariano ahead of Varela. Bad news bears! p

what? the last time they beat you at Mata Real was in 2003 and in the 11 times you've played there you won 8.

I know, I said it's hard for us to win there, not that we don't win there.

Even in our wins, it's ugly stuff. I just don't like the stadium.

GOLO FALCAO!

First goal for Porto.

Cross from Fucile, and the Colombian buries it home with a header.

1-1 in the 78th minute.

****, I have to leave to drive my girlfriend to her dance practice.

Last time I did this with a few minutes left, we screwed up against Estrela Amadora and tied 2-2.

Go FCP, make me happy listening to the radio.
