I'm really looking forward to this. It's cool to see these two top sides face each other. I think this will give a little bit of an indication on where Porto's level is at prior to entering this year's 2011-2012 champions league. I think Porto will be one of the better teams to watch in this year's CL. Glad they are back in it again. Who knows? The two sides might clash again if Porto goes deep into the QFs, SFs, etc.

Alvaro is definitely on his way out.

Too bad that James and Iturbe have only had two training sessions, would've been very nice options on the bench for this game.

Defour makes his first squad list, we'll see if he gets any minutes. Unlikely since Moutinho-Guarin are the starters and Belluschi has looked good, eager to reclaim his starting spot from Guarin.

Walter dropped again. Strong rumors of him being loaned out as we bring in a bonafied striker. What a disaster his career with us has been so far. He just loves to eat and be lazy.

Interesting to see Cebola included, but many Porto fans believe this is for two reasons; James and Iturbe aren't ready yet, and this is a reward to Cebola for his dedication and hard work over the last 3 years. He isn't even registered for the league, so he's definitely on his way out. This is a farewell gift to be called up for a special game.

What good would it have been to keep an unmotivated Falcao? He came on as a sub twice in the first three games and looked disinterested. No point playing a player who doesn't want to be here.

Fernando is on the way out and hasn't played a single minute, he is the backup to the far more technical Souza.

Vitor Pereira said today that we will not abandon our 4-3-3, so that line-up won't happen anyhow. Belluschi can't play on the wing.

Your theory of "unmotivated" players simply doesn't stick. According to you Luisão was "unmotivated" at Benfica. Yeah, we saw that last night.

Falcao left because you need the money, no more no less. You are forced to sell players every year as you like it or not. It's the fate of Portuguese teams to do it these days.

Souza is more technical but when Fernando was on form he gave a solidity to your defensive midfield that Souza is unable to give.

Thanks, like I didn't know that? I'm the first to admit we must sell players each summer, it's the harsh reality of our league's football.

So that's it? Souza can't improve? A 22 year old in his second season in Europe won't get better? He has a huge margin of potential and VP is a big admirer of his talents. Fernando came as a nobody from Brazil who was loaned to Estrela to prove himself. Souza is ahead of the curve already.

I think of Fernando as one of the best DM's in the world, so I hope Souza can become as good as him, but I really wish we had Fernando staying.

Anyway, the game is close now. I really hope we can push the cheats, but I don't hold much. I wish this game came right after we both won our respective European trophies, I think we could have taken them at that stage for reasons mostly to do with pure confidence.

My prediction is the Cheating Dogs 3 - Porto 1.

When did Belluschi play on the wing against Benfica? He played as a right sided central midfielder in our 4-3-3. Hulk was clearly the right winger, and Varela was clearly the left winger.

What you think your chances are tonight, Josh?

Not trolling here at all, just think you guys started better last season, in terms of play anyways, which is normal though considering there have been changes in the starting line-up.

will they go with a high pressure ala Mourinho?
