carvalho or simão should be captains. ronaldo is starting to meter um bocado de nojo in the nt, but the thing is at United he's playing very well, so probably the problem is that in the NT he's the menino bonito and no one has the balls to tell him to pass. the fucking. ball.

Quaresma is like ronaldo he goes in the box he doesnt cross right away, simao and nani cross the ball more so i think one of those 2 should start on the left when Almedia starts becuase hes great in the air... his goal he scored Nuno gomes wouldnt have scored that

ronaldo should be captain of the NT but only in the future
unless he gets serioulsy injured he'll certainly be the player with more games for the portuguese NT ever
but now he's not mature enough to be captain and there are other players who would be better suited for that, like simao and carvalho as you have mentioned before

Agreed Fili. Ronaldo and Quaresma don't do half of what they actually do in their teams. But I believe that in the real thing (Euro 2008), they will play their best. After all, it is Euro 2008 against qualifier, damn.

Ronaldo at captain? No way, it should be R.Carvalho, end of.

he was our best player today together with carvalho probably..

Quaresma and Ronaldo were crap again, the only thing they did right was the assist(quaresma) and the goal(ronaldo)..

unfortunately i couldn't see the game (damn Estruturas Discretas!)
anyway we won and that's the most important thing.
i don't know if we played well as a team but it seems that quaresma and ronaldo continued they crap streak. but they were still crucial to the victory so they are "desculpados"

euro 2008 here we come

its funny how the only person that made fun of Porto loss to Fatima was a sporting fan lol

Currently 2-1 Fatima.

It seems two losses in regulation time opposed to a penaltie loss lol karma is a bitch buddy

lol i knew i got excited to early lol still you guys lost in regulation at home to them we did on penalties.

lol i knew this was gonna happen but still i though Sporting were gonna gave a great team this year (i thought you guys made great signings) but that isnt the case here. Is Paulo Bento or the squad. I dont know anymore.

Great logic, and we won where you drew.

It's the squad: Purovic, Gladstone, Had, Celsinho, all close-to-nulites so far, not forgetting Paredes, Farnerud...

Two great goals by the player that the other teams fans always criticize, but that would love to have in their squads! :p

It's truly the squad. Purovic still does something. He scored one today and gave us one point against Setubal. I think he deserves another opportunity, he looks better than Djalo...

Had, Celsinho, Farnerud and Paredes aren't players for Sporting. Djalo and Ronny don't do a sh*t. Abel was too bad to say the words today...Derlei got injured, bad luck...

Our hope is that Veloso and Liedson keep carrying Sporting. They are the only ones doing something around. Stoijkovic, Moutinho and the CB are ok for now...but with guys playing like that...dude, winning today and going to next round is truly a miracle.

Whatever, next round (H)

And you lost where we never had a chance to play, plus you had a second opportunity to make amends or else you would be out.

But that defeats the purpose that this team is compeltely underperforming.
Everybody seems to be underperforming. Ya liedson scored 2 goals yesterday, but come on its fatima and a player like liedson should always score against these teams. But he's been underperforming this year. Moutinho has been a shadow of himself (or maybe he was just way to overhyped by the media and his true colours are showing). Veloso has been okay, but not as good as last year. Polga's been a rock. your bug signings have been flops. Djalo is proving to be anither media product.

I though Sporting would challenge Porto till the end (and that may still happen as Jesualdo is Porto's coach and 2nd half collapses are his specialty) but instead your playing at a level that Benfica's team is playing at, and they have possibly their worst team they've had in the past 10 years or so.

Definately worrying

I agree, Purovic needs to be given more oppurtunities, Djalo has been pretty bad this year... Only thing Djalo is good for is his pace, his finishing is horrible.
