Hehe, spoken with the true ruthlessness of a Porto fan..
Guimaraes will be tricky.. I really hope we score two quick goals. Then we can play on the counter.
Just one goal won't be enough for us and I hate how Porto can score one goal and its pretty much game over. We are always biting our nails with a one goal lead >_<
Well.. I don't know how good Pacos are this year because they've lost a couple of good players.. Beira-Mar will be the ones to watch this season. Didn't know they had some Iranian millionaire behind them now :O
Investment in Portuguese league? Interesting, interesting...
Pacos vs Sporting haha...what the hell?! Losing 2-0 and then in 8 minutes they completely turn it around and score 3 goals and win 3-2. I know just before they scored Pacos got the red card and then the spaces opened for Sporting..but jeez! Pacos were doing alright too before the red card, shame. I was enjoying it up until the 76th minute, but even after that it was quite amazing to see them completely turn it around! Possibly Sporting needed this to start their season off, but if Pacos never had the red they wouldn't have got back!
As for Benfica, the first pen, the goal, a soft nudge in the back but Hulk has gone down like that before and we've had pens..so yeah, i'll let you off!
The 2nd pen, the miss, that was hardly a pen so i'm glad he missed it. The 3rd pen, it was quite a harsh to give, he was jumping and his hands weren't even all over the place, they were just up with jumping and did it really even touch his arm? If it did it only skimmed him, but you don't always see them ones given. None of them were really proper clear pens to be given, possibly only the first. You had your chances though but Nilson made a few decent saves too.. and his kick was great to set up their goal!
Ha, i didn't know that about Beira-Mar.. They lost to Uniao today though, didn't they? Ha.
