Ok, we've discussed Bueno a million times, so no need to go there I guess. Let's just put it this way... 9 games in the league, 0 goals, and he's a striker.

By the way, I was glad to see Ronny get a start. I like this player and since Tello can play many positions, it's good to get him in the games. He's definitely a massive threat from set pieces with that golden left leg of his.

Also, I know he came on today, but has something been wrong with Alecsandro from injury or something, Filipe? When he was getting the starts alongside Liedson, he was scoring goals and a few times was the best player on the pitch. I really like this player, Sporting should definitely try to sign him permanently if it's possible. :thumbsup:

Bueno participated in 7 of the 14 games of Sporting in the league so far

He played 390 minutes in those 7 games which gives an average of 55 minutes per game, i.e. 3 and a half games.

Obviously that he came to Sporting to score goals and he still did not do it (for the league). However he is starting to show signs that, from the 3 strikers that Sporting has to make a partnership with Liedson upfront at the moment, he is the one with better characteristics to fit into the Brazilian's game.

Yes, I agree that offensively Ronny is very good and very dangerous from set pieces but to be honest, from what I've seen and from what I've read, I think he should be getting much more chances of playing in the position that Tello played tonight and vice-versa. Ronny IMO still does not defend very well and if against teams like Académica that is not too serious when the opponent is stronger (like for instance Spartak) he is still a liability.

About Alecsandro I think that he is a good player but I don't think he is first XI material for us. He is a useful player to come in the second half but a bit too slow for Sporting's current tactical scheme.

A great atmosphere in Alvalade with more than 40.000 :eekani: for the Xmas party game.

Sporting's first half yesterday, mainly the first 30 minutes of it, was probably the best period so far of our season in what concerns league games. Free flowing attacking football with all the immense talent that these players do have coming out at the same time. We could and should have ended that period easily leading by 2 or 3 goals: pure bliss.

Unfortunately the second half was quite different and it brought with it some of the problems that we've seen afflicting our game this season. Nevertheless globally it was a positive game with some good individual displays.

Miguel Veloso once again showed all his class in a game where he didn't have that much work to do.

Rodrigo Tello and João Moutinho worked like two ants never giving up.

Bueno, as I've said earlier in this same thread, showed once again that he is for me currently the best possible choice to partner with Liedson upfront.

And what to say about Levezinho? He is back to his good old self, constantly looking for the ball, an amazing team spirit and a killer instinct when most needed. :thumbsup:


Now, it's Cup time on Thursday against União da Madeira followed by three weeks of break that hopefully will be used to recharge batteries to keep putting the pressure on a very strong Porto.
