Does JJ just call up the youth teamers to tease them or what? :pp They never play. 21 players called, so you know the three in the stands will be Mika, Luis Martins, and Nelson Oliveira for sure.

Nah, one of them will sit on the bench during the 90 minutes...because Capdevila will be in the stands. :smileani:

The important thing is that we actually have young Portuguese guys travel with the team for now.

Can somebody explain what Miranda did for his yellow card?

Emerson elbows him in the head away from the ball, Miranda goes down hurt, the wonderful Jorge Sousa gives a yellow card to both players.

:confused:

Edit: Marítimo: Cartão amarelo para Rafael Miranda
Por protestos. :howler: He didn't complain at all.

Not sure what he said, I'm sure you can't tell either unless you read lips or something, Filipe will chime in with his conspiracy theory though.

Great effort from Maritimo, even a man down.

Very impressed with Pedro Martins. Makes the right adjustments throughout the game and gives his team a chance to win every weekend.

I thought you guys were extremely poor, but still got the 3 points with a scrappy effort. Almost a full 45 minutes with a man up though, you should be doing better than that.

Yes, we were very poor today, need to get rid of that Emerson guy

Marítimo must have had about 80% of their (many) attacks from the left flank. Emerson is your LB. In spite of that you shouldn't get rid of your RB as his theatrical dive on the second yellow of Olberdam was the key for this win.

Good job by Jorge Sousa. After his perfect refereeing on the Ajax vs Real Madrid game, here is another proof of the high quality of Portuguese refereeing. :stuckup:
