LC R3: Vit. Guimarães 0-0 SPORTING (6-7 pen.); D.Afonso Henriques, 26.09.2007

Our debut in the brand new League Cup could hardly be tougher and comes with very bad timing. We are about to visit Vitória de Guimarães, a team that has proven to be on of the strongest so far in this league that has exactly the same performance as Benfica, our next league opponents.

I'm quite curious to see which starting XI is Paulo Bento going to field against his former club. Liedson is injured and he was not called, in what looks like being a preventive move to rest him for the big derby on saturday.

Here's the list of players called:

Goalkeepers: Stojkovic and Tiago;

Defenders: Polga, Ronny, Tonel, Gladstone and Abel;

Midfielders: Paredes, Adrien, Izmailov, Vukcevic, Farnerud, Miguel Veloso, Bruno Pereirinha, João Moutinho and Romagnoli;

Avançados: Purovic, Yannick Djaló and Celsinho.


I would start with these:

Tiago
Abel - Tonel - Gladstone - Ronny
Adrien
Celsinho - Izmailov
João Moutinho
Purovic - Yannick Djaló

You will win this game convincingly. I say 3-0. I think you're being too modest saying you couldn't have gotten a tougher opponent when there are many teams more difficult than Guimaraes.

No, really, I believe they are in a peak of form and I think that apart from the other Big 2 and perhaps Marítimo (even if I'm still not that convinced by them), there are no other teams in Portugal playing better football than Guimarães.

Is it confirmed Adrien will start for sure?

I might have to end up watching this game then as I'm a big fan of the boy. I really, really liked what I saw from him in your pre-season games. A different type of player to Miguel Veloso, that's for sure, but effective and alot of deep playmaking promise I see in him.

3-0? I wouldn't be surprised if Vitória won this game. It's at D. Afonso Henriques and they have a good team.

Well it looks like PB is not taking this game and this trophy lightly so at least according to today's O Jogo we are going to field our strongest possible XI tonight:

Tiago
Abel - Tonel - Polga - Ronny
Miguel Veloso
João Moutinho - Izmailov
Romagnoli
Purovic - Yannick Djaló

I'd do the same if i were him.

Btw, what are the prospects of Liedson missing the derby?

0-0 at HT

Sporting has been clearly the best team on the pitch. Three great goal chances and an overall domain of the midfield. We should be up already. Is it the grass?

penalties here too?


Lex Immers - Pace & power. Holland's #1 box to box player

Feyenoord forum - the place to talk about this phenomenon

Ronald Koeman "Oranje kan Immers goed gebruiken"

Fred Rutten "Feyenoord heeft Immers nodig"

Van Marwijk over Lex Immers: 'Stille kracht van Feyenoord'

John de Wolf “Dat is nou precies de aanjager, het ’etterbakkie’ in het veld dat Feyenoord in dit soort wedstrijden nodig heeft"
