    about ******* time the CL is back, baby!



    having said that, I go for a clean 2-0.
    Falcao and Hulk to destroy Arsenal (H)
    Not so excited when I think about the second leg though :(

    Erm...you should have watched their previous displays at the Dragão and you wouldn't think that way.
    even Wenger himself admits that keeping a clean sheet is what they want, of course they will explore the counter-attack but the basis of their game will surely stand on stopping us from scoring.


    I'm OK with that as long as it only happens after he obliterates your arse. (H)

    It's hard to when your goalkeeper is Almunia.

    I remember when Hulk played in Japan for Kawasaki Frontale. His strike partner was called Magnum, so it was Magnum - Hulk. Awesome.

    Meh, not confident on this one too. We've been terrible for most of the season, with a particular knack to fail on the decisive moments. It is undeniable our team misses the confidence Lucho portrayed on the pitch, and Ruben is still too young in the team to boost the same levels of that 'intangible' confidence that makes good teams great.

    This is the most crucial week for Porto this season, playing our hopes on the CL and Liga in 2 decisive matches...
    Hope I'll be here next week saying I was wrong about us not coming through in the crucial moments.

    Prediction: 1x1

    ugh we are so messed with injuries for this game here is the squad though.

    Arsenal : Fabianski, Clichy, Vermaelen, Campbell, Eboue, Nasri, Denilson, Fabregas, Diaby, Walcott, Bendtner, Mannone, Sagna, Silvestre, Traore, Vela, Ramsey, Rosicky

    lineup will probably be

    Fabianski

    Sagna-Campbell-Vermaelen-Clichy

    Cesc-Denilson-Diaby

    Rosicky-B52-Nasri​

    Campbell to play his first UCL game since that night in Paris(screw you Belletti :swear2:!).

    we have our share of problems too, there are no strikers available apart from Falcao (Farías and Orlando Sá are injured) CR10 is also injured, Meireles just got back from an injury and Hulk hasn't played for 2 months now because he's still suspended in Portugal (and hasn't even been convicted yet 8|).

    Our match squad:

    GKs: Hélton, Beto.
    DFs: Miguel Lopes, Fucile, Bruno Alves, Rolando, Maicon, Alvaro Pereira.
    MFs: Fernando, Guarín, Raul Meireles, Tomás Costa, Ruben Micael, Belluschi.
    FWs: Mariano, Varela, Hulk, Falcao.

    This should be our line-up:

    ------------Hélton-------------
    Fucile-Rolando-B.Alves-A.Pereira
    -----------Fernando-----------
    ------Belluschi----Rúben-------
    Varela------------------Mariano
    ------------Falcao-------------


    I wonder if Jesualdo will risk playing Meireles and Hulk for Belluschi and Mariano respectively, I wouldn't be for it though...the team has been playing good football lately and I believe there is no need to disrupt its flow.
    Especially Hulk, he will come in handy throughout the match I reckon. He must be anxious to make a cracking comeback and what better stage to do it other than the CL (H)

    I must say it's pretty impressive how Micael has settled into your team so easily, now do the same with David Addy.

    He's a great player, manages to establish great balance in our midfield given his tactical awareness and also inject great creativity with his technique.
    He came from Nacional so he's already used to our league which is a plus.

    about Addy, we are yet to see him in action but he's been called up for every match since his arrival. Coincidently we always had the need for a back-up full-back for our last 3 or 4 matches so he got lucky making it to the squad (H)
    I hope to see what he can do soon enough, btw have you ever watched him play?
    If so, please share!
