PL R9: SPORTING 1-1 Marítimo; Alvalade; 01.11.2009

This promises to be a very tense match for Sporting for many reasons being the first somthing that should never happen in a football club. A part of those prsons that will be at the stadium and that usually support Sporting, will be jeering the team from the first moment in the hope that we may lose so that the Board is forced to sack the coach. Disgusting is the mildest word that I can think of to call this.

Sporting's president yesterday was extremely hard with his words for this type of "fans" and I couldn't agree more. This so called "minoria do bloqueio", which did not pass the 10% of votes in the elections held just 3 months ago, are nothing but a mixture of clueless idiots and sleazy opportunists. The former think that Sporting can do more than what we have achieved in the last 4 seasons, with the incredibly thin resources available. The latter are rubbing their hands just waiting to see if something can drop in their pockets from one more pointless change of faces.

As far as I'm concerned I wish both sets can join Rui Santos, Jorge Gabriel, João Braga and the rest of their putrid lot and join whatever club is needing them, because ours certainly breathes better without them.

About the game itself, apart from the group of players still injured, of which Izmailov is the biggest loss, we will have Rui Patrício and Vukcevic not at 100%. In the case of the Montenegro international, it is actually very much possible that he will start on the bench.

Here's a possible starting XI for the game that kicks off in about half an hour (21:15 CET):

Rui Patrício
Abel | Tonel | Daniel Carriço | Grimi
Miguel Veloso
Pereirinha | João Moutinho
Matías Fernández
Liedson | Caicedo


Subs from: Tiago, Ricardo Batista, Pedro Silva, André Marques, Adrien Silva, Vukcevic, Angulo, Miguel Veloso, Carlos Saleiro and Hélder Postiga.

The official line-up is out and there are two changes to the line-up that I have predicted in the previous post:

Rui Patrício
Abel | Tonel | Daniel Carriço | André Marques
Miguel Veloso
Pereirinha | João Moutinho
Matías Fernández
Liedson | Hélder Postiga

10 Portuguese players in the starting XI.

Great start by Sporting creating already 2 or 3 goal chances. Marítimo also had a goal chance on their side. Good game.

Almost half-time and no conspiracy posts of you guys getting screwed and the referee missing 4 or 5 'blatant' penalties. What's going on here!?!

0-0 at HT

A good first half from both sides with two teams playing offensively creating several goal chances.

Marítimo is a good side with very fast and skilled players upfront whom did not come to play for one point only.

Sporting showed a good attitude, mainly in the first 10' and in the last 15' of this first period. Matías, Moutinho and Liedson were particularly positive whereas Abel, André Marques and Pereirinha were very poor. Our weak points are still the same: very poor service from the wingbacks and a clear mental weakness from a team that needs desperately to start winning games domestically.

One good thing: apparently until now, the menace of a demo from the inner scum is so far just that, a menace.

Well, there you go. A penalty on Postiga inside the box is transformed into a freekick outside. Happy now?

Quick ball recovery in the attacking midfield, Liedson assists with his head and Matías makes a beautiful bowed shot on the top left corner. 1-0 at 54'

And now at 62' 1-1 by Manu with a superb shot. Probably the best goal of his life, as it usual happens with all the shit that comes to play in Alvalade. No fault in our defense whatsoever.

At 64' two substitutions at the same time for us. Pedro Silva and Caicedo IN for Pereirinha and Abel.

1-1 FT

Nothing to say about the effort put by the team in this second half. They did all they can, it's not possible to ask more of these players, at this moment.

That miss by Caicedo at the 94th minute is a perfect mirror of this game.

The cockroaches came out now that the final whistle is over waving their "Rua" signs.
