Teams: SPORTING CP & Portugal NT
Taça 12/13, 3rd Round| Moreirense 3-2 SPORTING, AET| Moreira de Cónegos, 21.10.2012
The majority of sportinguistas would expect us to go to this important game already under the management of a new coach but that is not the case. Our Board keeps trailing and the only thing they say it's "patience, we need patience". Oceano, the current coach, is at least a sensible guy which is one of the few reassuring things we can find right now about this club.
He called the best squad available for this difficult away game at Moreirense, a Primeira Liga side that is tough to beat at home. It's also interesting to see that he called two players from the B side that he coached until he was called to manage the first team - Portugal U21's international CB Pedro Mendes and the excellent Colombian RB Santiago Arias, who was strangely sent to the B side by Sá Pinto in the pre-season.
Line-up to be posted soon.
