Alright! Let's be serious, what are our chances of winning the WC?
hmm Postiga scores some goals but I don't think he's THE guy. I doubt he will be as great as Pauleta. As for Quim, I have some troubles to compare him with Ricardo because I don't fancy one or other. Quim hasn't made a big blunder this season but Benfica have conceded some naive goals with some fault on him, in my opinion. Anyway, he's playing decently.BeiraMarense said:As of right now?
It's very hard to tell.
Pauleta is just not gonna cut it, but I think Helder Postiga is picking up the goalscoring, so we could have a possible solution.
The only spots on our team which I think might need some strenghtening would be the forward slot, one of the wings (doesn't matter which, Ronaldo can do the other), the DL, and debatably the goalkeeping spot. For me, I think Quim should have a go as keeper, he was very good against Canada and I would hope that he gets a chance, he's very solid, and I don't think he's made a big blunder at all this season.
Ofcourse, Pauleta is our number one option. However, Nuno Gomes has also been playing well in qualifying. Only if we had a dominate striker like Henry or Sheva...hrvatski kralj said:hmmmm i am unsure about nuno gomes aswell for some reason pauleta has been good in qualifing so i would stick with him for now who played striker against canada ?

It depends. There's one more season till the WC 06 and we must realise that Pauleta will certainly leave PSG because his situation at the club is not great. Anyway, if it's confirmed that Liedson will be transferred out to Corinthians, then why not Pauleta signing Sporting? I think this is the season for Pauleta to debut in Superliga, finally. Porto have the money, Benfica are on fire... good chances for him, too. Playing in Superliga might give him a new confidence because I think he's still with a good physical condition. The main problem is PSG, which is not the easiest of the teams to settle.-Marta- said:Portugal needs a good striker (Pauleta has been terrible this year) and someone who's *not* a pitiful goalkeeper. That leaves Quim and Ricardo out. If I had to choose someone it would have to be Moreira. It's just too damn bad that Mora isn't portuguese - he's done some great games this year.
