EL 12/13, Group G| Videoton 3-0 SPORTING| Szekesfehervar, 04.10.2012

It's obvious that Sá Pinto's departure is a matter of weeks, perhaps even days, so this game is just one more stone on his grave. It's also obvious that he is not the main responsible for the current chaos in our club but if he is such a great sportinguista as he claims to be I feel that the best proof of that would be if he could resign and stop pretending that he is a true coach.

Amongst explained, and unexplained absences, this is the line-up that, according to UEFA's website, we are about to field in Hungary:

Rui Patrício
Rinaudo - Boulahrouz - Rojo - Pranjic
Gelson Fernandes
Izmailov - André Martins - Jeffrén
Labyad - Viola

1-0 to Videoton by Paulo Vinicius from a corner at 15'

Sporting started well, pressing very high but two corners by the hosts were enough to put them ahead on the score.

At 20' 2-0 by Filipe Oliveira after a cross from the right. No surprise at all after looking at the starting line-up.

This seems to be one of those cases of watching a team sacking the coach on the pitch.

Sa Pinto to be sacked tomorrow if it stays so?

Great work by Izmailov delivering an excellent cross but Viola completely misses the header. Van Wolfswinkel is watching from the bench.

In normal circumstances yes, but right now there is absolutely nothing normal at this club.

First sub by our Rinus Michels at 30': Rinaudo is subbed by van Wolfswinkel.

And now the ref gives a little help to the Hungarian bus. Ricky is blantantly pulled by Caneira when he was about to tap in but none of the 259 refs saw it.

One minute later Boulahrouz assists Nikolic for the 3-0. Classic stuff.

Truth to be said, in spite of this disastrous HT score I am not one but surprised with it. This was bound to happen sooner or later and it is irrelevant whether this is only due to the comical line-up picked by our coach or to any sort of lack of will by some of our players. Sporting is a ship without captain and right now just about any team could beat us.

In one minute two shots on goal for us, by Viola and Jeffrén, both saved by the keeper.

It is in fact irrelevant whether Sá Pinto is now going to be sacked or not. The tragic thing for the club right now is that those that are the real responsible for this state of things got a blank cheque early this week from the majority of those sócios that bothered showing up at the club's AGM.

Once again Sporting is proving that we are the most Portuguese of our country's clubs. We keep being shagged by those in power and we keep trusting them.
