After qualifying for the Europa League's group stage last Thursday on a nervy but deserved way we are back in the league today trying to get our first win.

Domingos said that we have to win this one so let us see if his line-up will tell us if he is ready to walk the talk. It's true and understandable that a coach should not change the line-up of his team because of the amount of jeers that player X or Y gets, but the truth is that Yannick Djaló never showed, and goes on not showing, enough quality to be part of this club's squad.

Nice to see André Martins getting his first league call and lots of expectation about the possible league debut of Bojinov.

Here's the list of players called for tonight's match:

Goalkeepers: Rui Patrício and Marcelo Boeck.

Defenders: João Pereira, Daniel Carriço, Anderson Polga, Oguchi Onyewu and Evaldo.

Midfielders: André Santos, Fito Rinaudo, Stijn Schaars, Marat Izmailov, Diego Capel, Jeffrén, André Carrillo and André Martins.

Forwards: Valeri Bojinov, Ricky van Wolfswinkel, Yannick Djaló, Hélder Postiga and Diego Rubio.

You should win this one, Maritimo have arguably their poorest squad in the last 4-5 years.

Should be three points.

Believe it or not last night when I was watching the news about the hurricane I was wondering if you and Pila would be OK. Hope this was more the news hype than anything else.

André Santos
Izmailov ---- Schaars
Yannick Djaló - Hélder Postiga - Diego Capel



Subs: Marcelo, Onyewu, Rinaudo, Carrillo, Jeffrén, van Wolfswinkel and Bojinov.

I wish somebody one day could take one hour to introduce Postiga to the offside rule. :rollani:

Hats off to Yannick who did a good job in the assisit and also to the very good shot of Izmailov, who has been so far, and by far, our worst player tonight.

SPORTING 1-0 Marítimo at HT

As much as we don't want to talk about them they force us to do it. The only reason we are ahead on the score it's because we scored two goals because it's obvious that this season we start with -1 goal. How is it possible to be so feckin trigger happy in waving the offside flag in a situation like Evaldo's goal?

Anyway, talking about the game itself I don't think that Marítimo looked bad at all. They have a very fast set of players upfront and that speed made our job in this first half very difficult. It's true that the only times that they created some danger came from the usual deadball situations in which our defense goes on being extremely weak - no wonder as this defense is exactly the same as last season.

Even so we did show some good moves upfront, mainly through the good work of Schaars. We could have scored a couple of times even before Evaldo's goal. Postiga did his usual wanderings through the flanks but when he does that nobody compensates in the middle, which means obviously, that he should never be our only striker on the pitch. Izmailov was very absent from the game right until that wonderful strike that broke the lock.

I would like to see a couple of changes upfront asap in order to score the second and secure the very much needed 3 points.

At 48' 1-1 from a corner by Miranda's shoulder. Marítimo won all the headers so far so it's not surprising to see this.

And at 52' it's 2-1 to Marítimo thanks to a gift by João Pereira and the goal of Sami's life.
