    Anyone else seen this about Portimonense potentially being bought by City Football Group?

    Solid start for us last night with a 2-0 away win against Pacos.

    Nuno Mendes and Pedro Porro were excellent on either side as the wing backs. Nuno Santos and Braganca both looked good when they came on. Pote wasn’t involved or Eduardo Quaresma due to COVID so it’s actually looking like we have good squad depth and different options this year!!

    Just need another striker as Tiago Tomas missed a couple of great chances

    Angel Gomes has wrapped up goal of the season already then. Scored from like 35+ yards Vs Moreirense.

    Scrap that. Nanu has just taken the net off at the Dragão.

    3-1 to Marítimo what an upset!

    How do you guys think Carlos Vinicius will get on at Spurs?

    I've missed Benfica's first couple of games so far this season, how has Vertonghen settled in? I'll genuinely miss him at Tottenham, a real professional and quality servant of the club.

    Vinícius is physically an absolute beast. Good link up play with his back to goal and can stretch a defence with his pace as well.

    I find him to be a bit streaky with his finishing tbh. Either everything goes in or nothing does.

    interesting but from the sounds of it I think he could fit into our system quite well when needed as we have quite a few wingers in the squad who are more than capable of scoring, just no out and out strikers besides Kane. I'd love to see him do well and get a few goals, obviously.

    And Telles and Danilo both leaving, I hope they’ve not got plans to replace them :laugh:

    We’ve sold Wendel to Zenit for 23 million. Good deal to be honest. He’s too inconsistent but does still have great potential.

    Looks like the money will be used to bring Joao Mario back on loan and Paulinho from Braga or another striker

    Joao Mario signed up on loan for a year, so happy with this one. I know his spells at Inter and West Ham didn’t work out but he played his way back into the national team in Russia so I’ve no doubt he’s still got the quality to lead this team

    Watched the game last night.

    First half was abysmal but 2nd much better. Portugal had the better chances and were really unlucky with the shots off the bar but Spain better overall.

    Patrício was MOTM for me, absolute colossus at the back.

    I used to watch a lot of Scottish football. This is a much better use of my time, trust me.

    Pedro's goals were quality.

    2-2 draw at home with Porto. Solid result especially after falling behind. Sporar isn’t the best but until we sign another striker he needs to start, we just lack that presence with Jovane as a false nine.

    I have to say.. what a performance from Palhinha. Years ago I thought he’d be the heir to William Carvalho’s throne. It’s taken him a while to get there but my word he was phenomenal tonight

    Brilliant goal by Tecatito for Porto's 2nd. Really thought he'd move on this summer.
