Teams: SPORTING CP & Portugal NT
The dark ages of 2012/13 might be starting to finish. We've managed to win away after almost 9 months - the worst series in the history of the club - and we've managed to win two straight matches for the first time this season. Wow.
More important than these stats, that have made a field day to our lovely, and completely unbiased, sports press, is the fact that Sporting played in a very different way from what we've made until now this season. No knee jerking at the back, control in the midfield, movement off the ball and a self-confidence that was totally absent this season under any of the three previous coaches.
Now let's get rid of this president and start rebuilding this great club.
