O.k I hear that a lot of benfica fans want sporting to win the championship coz of the north v south rivalry.
Well as much as porto may have gone a long way to creating this north v south rivalry I for one believe portugal is one country and love the north of portugal just as much as I love the south.
And hey what would be better than another year of sporting going without the championship!

Believe me, if Benfica had won the last 5 championships in a row, Porto fans would also wish Sporting to win it this year.

As for that rivalry, it irritates me. I keep hearing that too. It seems a lot arrogant from the big cities to think that they can represent half of the country. The north isn't Porto, neither is Lisbon the south. I'm so tired of that...blaaargh

it will always be like that. Porto the big city of the North represents the North, while Lisbon represents the south. North versus South exists in every country (ask the Italians) and will never stop. traditionally the North is more prosperous than the South. The only country that this may not apply to is perhaps Canada.

ha ha....my family is from the north and all the blood and sweat they put into their work went straight into Lisbon. Second The North is wealthier than the South.
