FC Porto Thread [2015-2016]

Estádio do DRAGÃO


September 1893. Out of nothing, as a secret ambition unfolded by a tough and inflexible reality, FC Porto has been founded. António Nicolau d´Almeida, a fine sportsman and an expert Oporto Wine trader, invited, in the quality of F.C. Porto president, FC Lisbonense to a football match. It was the first appearance in a football match for the club, the most ancient page written in more than an hundred years of history.

Deep and insightful enthusiasm marked the years that followed F.C. Porto foundation. The goal of José Monteiro da Costa was to unite the efforts of the local community with the strong English representation in Oporto. This led to extinction of Grupo Recreativo "O Destino" in favour of F.C. Porto. It was the beginning of a solid structure.

The founders were men strongly determined to engender a symbol, a crest or an icon, in which future generations would have pride on. Their remarkable initiative is still remembered. Blue and white were the colours chosen, as meaning of pureness, calmness and stillness of mind. The colours were represented, at that early time, in the Portuguese flag.

FC Porto evolved its purposes to national and universal goals. In the first crest, the symbol
was, of course, a football ball with the FCP. initials. Twenty years later the Oporto city shield becomes a vital part of the FC Porto badge. In 1948, the 3-2 victory over Arsenal, at the time known as the best team in the world, was a proof of the blue and whites’ potential.

Over the years, FC Porto grew as the conquests were becoming bigger and as its purposes were becoming greater. The symbol of a region astounded the country and surprised the world. The 1980’s were one of the most memorable decades. In 1987 and 1988, FC Porto conquered the European Champions Cup, the Intercontinental Cup and the European Super Cup – an outstanding deed, a proof of the success of a special approach to sports. Few years later, F.C. Porto achieved a goal that no other club in Portugal dared to accomplish. Five championships in a row was a remarkable act, another great page in the clubs’ history.

Nowadays, the world changed and Portugal too has evolved. Sports reality is now more complex, but FC Porto remains at the top. The club remained winning and the dynamics persisted. FC Porto is now represented all over the country and all over the world.
The Centro de Treinos e Formação Desportiva PortoGaia and the Estádio do Dragão are modern infrastructures of world class. The future shines, as the club conquered the UEFA Cup, in the season 2002/03, the UEFA Champions League, in 2003/04, the Intercontinental Cup, in 2004, and the Europa League, in 2010/11. At the end of this last season, FC Porto became the most titled portuguese club.

Beyond the reality that surrounds football, F.C. Porto showed its greatness in other sports. The honours achieved speak for it. The club is also strong in basketball, handball, roller hockey, billiards, swimming, athletics, adapted sport, motorsports, boxing, camping, chess, fishing, karate and weightlifting. These teams contribute to this history of success and ensure the diversity and necessary involvement in the community’s well-being.​

We may be going through a rough time because we won fuck all as of late, but our negotiation skills remain intact:

We decided to make a move for Casemiro, since the loan deal we made last year with Real involved an option to buy (allegedly €15M), and we decided to take it. That deal had a another clause though, saying that Real could stop the move but they had to pay us a compensation instead. They decided to do so, which means that in the end we had Casemiro on loan for a full season and now we are getting around €7M because he's going back. (H)!!!!


Staff member
His retirement was put into consideration after his achilles' heel injury, but he is now fully recovered and actually finished the season as the starter and in good form. As a result, his contract has been renewed for another couple of seasons. Fabiano had been extremely shaky throughout last season and then the Munich game was the death of him.

Gudiño will probably play one more season in the reserves before taking the big step.


Staff member
Fucking legend.

Was wishing he would go to a better league and team than Serie A and Milan, but as long as we're getting payed fairly (and we are) I'm cool with it.
Just hope Milan are able to build a strong team around him, if that's the case then he can actually be part of something big there. Juve, beware...

Concerning the striker position I wouldn't get anyone else TBH. I think Aboubakar might be able to do a good job, then we have Gonçalo and even André Silva who are amazing prospects and should be given a chance now and then. But I assume we will be buying another striker, Guido Carrillo being the strongest rumour so far.


Staff member
Yeah. We're gonna have a new sponsor (yet to be announced) starting this season so I'm still curious to see what the final result will be.

So good that they named him twice?

Anyway you guys had so many players on loan during the past season, and Carlos*son is supposedly leaving, which doesn't do you guys any justice.

I honestly don't understand what this means.

There is no need to be that offesive. You guys had players like Casemiro, Tello and Óliver Torres (who's amazing) on loan. Sorry if my punctuation was a bit difficult to understand. I hope it clears it up.


Staff member
You thought was offensive? Wow.

Nothing to do with punctuation, it was actually the last part which riddled me: "doesn't do you guys any justice". You mean Carlos*son leaving? It is more than expected, he was actually as good as gone last season but stayed loyal to the club.


Starting XI
Offensive? Yeah I guess but I'm pretty much fucked up right now.

Oh I see.. Well by "doesn't do you guys any justice" I meant that FC Porto is a sympathetic club for me, like Atléti and Dortmund, and it's kind of sad to see such influential players leave the club. But you guys always find new quality players thanks to a proper scouting etc.. So it isn't really that big of a loss.
