2010/11 FC Porto domestic thread (league + cups)

Season starts with the Supertaca match against Benfica in Aveiro.

Porto had a decent pre-season, started off very well but struggled lately in the tournament in France.

First time in years we go in to this season as underdogs, with a new coach and a very young team.

Interesting selections...

Fucile not called, that's expected as he's on his way out, but Raul Meireles called! He hasn't played a minute in the pre-season so far like Bruno because both are/were certainties to leave, but I don't know what to make of this now. Surely he won't start, even though Ruben Micael is injured.

Walter not called since he's only played a few minutes so far, along with James Rodriguez and some others. Appears the exhibitions of our boy Ukra have won over Villas-Boas who has kept him in the team.

Squad called:

GK: Helton, Beto

DF: Miguel Lopes, Cristian Sapunaru, Rolando, Sereno, Maicon, Alvaro Pereira

MF: Joao Moutinho, Fernando Belluschi, Raul Meireles, Souza, Fernando

FW: Falcao, Hulk, Silvestre Varela, Cristian Rodriguez, Ukra

--

Not Called: Walter, James Rodriguez, Fredy Guarin, Andre Castro, *Tomas Costa, **Jorge Fucile, Emidio Rafael, Pavel Kieszek

Injured: Ruben Micael, Mariano Gonzalez

* - Tomas Costa has been told he will not be part of the team and is waiting to be loaned/sold.

** - Fucile will be sold soon and is not called to avoid injury and give the expects two RBs, Miguel Lopes and Sapunaru, regularity.

Hmm, so Walter and James Bond Rodriguez weren't called up because their inscription with the FPF still isn't done yet. That's ridiculous.

http://www.ojogo.pt/26-219/artigo878376.asp

Anyways, expected line-up:

Helton[C]
M.Lopes - Rolando - Maicon - A.Pereira
Fernando
F.Belluschi - J.Moutinho
Hulk - Falcao - Varela

Bench: Beto, Sereno, Sapunaru, Souza, Raul Meireles, Ukra, Cristian Rodriguez

Personally, I'd give the captaincy to Fernando.

Damn that is a young team. Especially once Ruben comes in for Belluschi, and Walter and Bond are in.

A young team with a young coach. Could be a good thing, could be a bad thing. Mind you, a young talented team with a young talented coach.

Goooooooooloooooooo FCP!

1-0 for us in the 4' minute on a goal from Rolando. Comes from a corner kick.

Hey, we may not be able to defend set pieces, but we're scoring from them at least. p

Excellent start!

Joao Moutinho just dominating the midfield in these opening minutes. Has drawn three fouls, sprung Hulk in on a great opportunity, and is moving the ball around with purpose.

RIDICULOUSLY dirty play from Cardozo in the 15th minute!

Sapunaru clears the ball off a corner kick, and Cardozo after the fact leans into Sapunaru and swingis elbow at Sapu's head, dropping him to the pitch.

Benfica showing their frustration early, lots of nasty tackles and this Cardozo play was a ****in' red card if the refs or linesmen had seen it.

Fabio Coentrao finally booked after his third dive of the game.

Complete domination by us in the first 30 minutes, Benfica have one shot on goal and have used their elbows and diving more than their feet so far.

Sapunaru is just a terrible player.

Can't attack at all, can't defend even decently, and now he can't even take throw-ins in time and ends up getting whistled by the ref.

Just a bad player.

Benfica getting into the game now, two recent chances and they're hanging onto the ball better.

Holy ****, Ceisar Peixoto just went studs into Varela's calf and then stood on his ankle for like 3 seconds... and nothing called!

Luisao saves Benfica from the 2nd goal.

Roberto, like the shit keeper that he is, swats the cross right onto Belluschi's foot who hammers it on goal. But Luisao was standing on the line and clears it away.

1-0 for us at HT.

Opening 30 minutes contained some of the best football we've played this summer. Benfica then got a couple of chances that Helton had to be careful with, and then the last 6-8 minutes we took control again almost scoring the 2nd.

Not happy with Cardozo's elbow and Coentrao's three dives so far. Peixoto's studs on Varela's calf was nasty, but looking at the second and third replays, doesnt look intentional just an unfortunate scenario. Cardozo's elbow to Sapunaru's head was blatant and well late after the ball was cleared.

I hope Miguel Lopes comes on for Sapu because he's just a bullshit footballer. Doesn't do anything right.

At 50', Pablo Aimar joins Fabio Coentrao in the yellow card department.

Belluschi is just too quick out there today, one step ahead of all other midfielders on the pitch.

And two minutes later, Aimar is lucky not to be sent off as he kicks Belluschi in the head challenging for a header. Well, Aimar didn't challenge for it, he went up with his foot.

Absurd tackle from Carlos Martins showing how hot headed he is and no concentration.

Varela skins him on the wing and he lunges out into Varela's ankle.

Benfica have lost their heads!!!

Sapunaru is carrying the ball back for a throw-in, David Luiz comes behind him and kicks him to the ground!!!!

Just a YELLOW card again, this is ****ing bullshit! That's like three or four just nasty, away from the ball, ridiculous plays from the red bastards.

And another yellow card for Benfica... this time Jara, the substitute.

What a dirty bunch of pricks they have been in this game. Instead of trying to match our football, it's kicking, elbowing, and diving everywhere.
