Teams: SPORTING CP & Portugal NT
I am happy that I couldn't watch this one because after reading all the available press reports this was one more episode of the bad taste comedy show appropriately named "Liga Sagres".
From what I've read, it's clear that once again Sporting did not play that well and it's also true that Paulo Bento keeps strangely betting on an injured Polga thus seriously handicapping our defensive line, but these two facts cannot be the only that justify our bad result at Dragão.
How is it possible that those responsible for appointing referees in Portugal can nominate someone that is in the middle of a legal case with our club?
How is it possible that Raúl Meireles was not sent off for his foul on Abel whereas Miguel Veloso sees a red in the way he did?
How can one not be disgusted with the permanent circus that happens in that stadium every time one of the two big clubs from Lisbon visit it?
As long as there are no answers to questions like these I cannot blame Paulo Bento for openly criticising these sons-of-bitches.
