Stadium of Light
Teams: Benfica, Portugal
All's I know is that SPorting is being carried by the refs. Yesterday's game is a classic example of what has happened to Sporting in more games than I can count.
IT's a 0-0 game JVP has dove a bazillion times to get a call, and then when Prates does it, Bam penalty shot with 20 minutes left in the game. If you tell me that doesn't kill a game, then I don't know what to say.
One thing is being lucky, another is every other game getting the benefit of these decisions.
Jardel has more penalty shots for goals this season than what he had at Porto in 3 years while Porto won all them championships.
THere's more to it than luck.
....There was also a conspiracy against Sporting to keep them out of 1st place by 26 points. The conspiracy is about to be revealed in a public judicial forum soon enough. It's hasn't anything to do with Golden whistles, but with Golden Showers, as Sporting Administration and coaching has conspired to piss all over themselves this season.
