This is absolutely awful! Early (unconfimed) rumor is that he failed some sort of drug test.

He wasn't a starter, but he worked hard to earn his slot on this team. Depending on the reason why he was released, this could turn into a media circus, which is the LAST thing this team needs.

The nightmares of Saltillo are starting to rush back to me! :depress:

Hugo Viana is the early favorite to replace him.


Let the "Why the F*ck isn't Dani called up instead?!" rants begin, RedE! ;)

Agreed. Here comes Dani boyz? The people who questioned this now get the man they wanted Dani!

Theres talk in Macau about something to do with doping - feel sorry for the dude, but for me he just didnt gel with the team.

Question now is who will replace him - my vote goes to Viana, heres already had some experience with the NT (unlike the untried Kennedy) & will serve as backup to Rui.

Hugo Viana is the substitute, the Federation confirmed already anounced it (at least acording to the news on portuguese TV)

Kennedy's antidoping tests revealed that he had taken a diurétic (?)(diet) pills... he confirmed it to A Bola here

I really feel sorry for the poor little [email protected]@rd !!!

Whether he is telling the truth or not, he should be proffessional enough to have anything he takes checked out by club or NT Doctors.............. anyways as one door shuts another one opens & I am sure Hugo Viana will grab his opportunity with both hands !!


BTW - Why the f*ck would you wanna take diet pills when your gong to asia ??? you dont stop sweating there !!! or did he take them before he knew of his call up ????????

any full time professional footballer that needs to take diet pills (Richie Dunne?) should be banned anyway. Try jogging dear boy!

My guess at the real story :stoned: , he finished his season at Maritimo. him & all the boys decide to celebrate by smoking this giant block of hash in them giant hook up bongs , you know the ones with the 6 hoses . well anyway he gets the call for his surprise NT selection , BUT..... too late :eek: he has got the savage munchies.... he has downed 7 chickens , 3 Mud Cakes , 8 Bacalhaus , 10 Kilos of potatoes and washed it down with 2 slabs of Madeira'a finest brew , Coral . All that explains the diet pills !!!! How'd you be Badge ???

How'd you be you & all your mates are down at your local pub , You just downed your 37th pint of that fine drop Guinness & your missus rings up telling you that her plans with her girlfreinds fell through & she wants to get down & dirty ;) . BUT......... in your drunken stupor , you have forgotten to bar up :rolleyes: ... (I know a poor example , but the only one I can think off ) and your answer is that magic pill designed for you viagra ( or ecstacy )............. see badge there is a pill for everyone in a sticky situation ;)

Viagra was researched and is manufactured in Ireland. See, us Irish just want the world to get it on! The Pfizer Risers as we call em.

Yer man Danny Kenedy has a fierce Irish name as well.

Good point Alc.....Is he was an offspring to one of the Yankee Kennedy's we can sweep this under the rug alot easier. Nevertheless, he isn't which makes it all too strange.

Hey Badge, let us not forget the infamous George Best who made a every footballer look like a saint compared to him....

It's ashame in more ways than one.

Stupidity on Kenedy's part for being on the stuff. And I don't buy that BS about being on a diet. The guy is a professional futebol player.

Viana's call up is questionable. I haven't seen him do anything yet. However he's there and good for him.

I guess Portugal just became more predictable with this call up though. If Rui Jorge gets hurt all our opponents are going to be aware of the fact that no one can beat them with their left!

I don't have any faith in Oliveira.

Hey RedE, you must have faith bro. I think we should have called up Dani personally but I think Vianna is fine. Either way we need to look at it optimistically although I am not an Oliveira fan. I prefer Coelho compared to him.

Needless to say, we should be o.k. Kenedy said he was taking "slimming pills" because he was on holiday for 11 days before he got the news of the call-up. You see, call someone up unexpectedly and he's been eatin, drinkin, and shaggin for 10 days already. How do you expect the lad to get fit? You should've at least gave him a hint not to let himself go to hell until the roster was announced.

Flo, you misunderstand brother! I have faith in our team, but not in our coach. I believe that we will succeed, but that's because of the players, not him. He's a Tool!

As far as the Kennedy, I don't buy it. THe diet pills are used to mask other forms of drugs, that's why their banned. He could have been stupid enough to take them after he was called, because of the reasons you mentioned, but I doubt it. WHy wouldn't a professional athlete who's seen Quim get banned not question the compounds of a diet pill?

No wonder he ran all over the place against Benfica.

True, true, true.....I hear ya RedE...I guess I by into that philosophy as well......

That was straight from Kenedy's mouth and I don't by it either...He just ruined a chance of a lifetime....He was the 23rd selected anyway so I mean he's replaceable.....I just wish it was with somebody who can play the left...

My contact in Macau told me Paulo Sousa looks unreal as well as Nuno Gomes.......He also stated Baia is lookin like ****e!

We shall see on Friday....
