The second edition of our League Cup (sponsored by the Danish piss brand) started yesterday with the first leg games of the first stage which involves only Liga de Honra (sponsored by a brand of bottled water) clubs.

The main thing to notice is that Boavista forfeited the game at Sporting da Covilhã which means that they have been expelled from the competition. That is probably the least of their problems anyway.

So here are the scores:

2008/09 League Cup (Carlsberg Cup)

First Stage - 1st Leg

02.08.2008
Sp. Covilhã vs Boavista (*)
Santa Clara 0-0 Olhanense
UD Oliveirense 0-1 Estoril-Praia
Portimonense 0-2 Gil Vicente
Gondomar 3-1 Beira-Mar
Feirense 1-2 Vizela
Varzim 0-0 União Leiria
Freamunde 3-1 Desp. Aves


(*) Boavista forfeited the match and was consequently expelled from the competition.


The second leg matches will be played next weekend.

The truth is that this Piss Cup is showing an undeniable fact: your squad is the weakest of the top 3 clubs in Portugal and that will be reflected at the end of the season. :)

O Belenenses acaba de receber um fax da Federação Portuguesa de Futebol a confirmar que foi aceite o efeito suspensivo do recurso apresentado pelo clube do Restelo.

Sendo assim, o Benfica-V.Guimarães referente às meias-finais da Taça da Liga está suspenso.

:howler::howler:

Screw this pathetic tournament.

Here's a comment from a Porto fan on a forum of one of the biggest Portuguese footbal websites, about Porto's attitude towards this competition. A proof that not all portistas are sad losers...

" desinteresse... by zloit, 05.02.2009

Como portista, entristece-me muito ver o desinteresse que o Porto teve com esta prova...

Na minha opinião é um desrespeito pela competição em causa, pelo futebol português, pelos apreciadores de futebol e principalmente pelos próprios adeptos do FC Porto. Não serve a desculpa que isto é gestão de plantel porque por diversas vezes que o Porto teve jogos da champions a meio da semana e não foi por isso que os jogadores titulares deixaram de ter bom desempenho e bom rendimento por fazerem dois jogos numa semana.

O jogo de hoje foi francamente mau, dos piores que vi em toda a época - serviu também para confirmar que as soluções que o Porto tem no banco são realmente más, ainda pior quando jogam todas simultaneamente.

Não me custa realmente nada congratular o Sporting por repetir a presença na final da Taça da Liga, que não precisou de muito esforço nem de uma complicada gestão de plantel para tirar do caminho o campeão nacional que fez por ir a Alvalade ser humilhado."

:thumbsup:
