    Porto dropping points at Funchal is a classic

    nah, he's too greedy, tried to gamble with both Benfica and Sporting, but looks like he's going to Flamengo

    Disappointing performance from us at the weekend. Amorim just seems to struggle to get it right against Famalicao. We looked sluggish, players who have started the season in fantastic form were terrible and I’m not sure what’s going on with Nuno Mendes but Vinagre is playing much better than him

    We desperately need a striker. I like Paulinho and I like the way he plays like the Firmino of our team, but he’s not a reliable goalscorer. Either that or we need a clone of Pote on the other side to ease the goal scoring burden

    Is that the same Mendez that we're getting on loan with an option to buy (the left-back)? Anyone with any info on him? Would be great to have some competence down the left wing...

    He’s a terrific young left back, he could easily become one of the best in the world in that position

    7 million euro loan fee with a 40 million ‘option’ to buy. It sounds very much as though it’s been inserted as an option as a way to get around FFP but it is actually an obligation to buy. Sarabia to us on loan in return too

    Sarabia is a lovely little player but at the wrong club. No reason why he can't thrive at Sporting this season.

    Never talk about Boavista here, but João Pedro Sousa is really a lovely manager, it's insane the start of the season he's been making, qualifying for the League Cup group stage and sits at 6th in the league with a very limited squad. Poor investments last season cost them hard ths season, they a few a good young players who are stepping up nicely

    Benfica always finds a way to give a chance to their rivals, we are very creative like that

    I'm liking our goal ratio this year, 5 shots on target, 5 goals, damn

    Funny because it looked like a match made in heaven when he signed but if he's playing Marcano out of position or shit like Manafá or Zaidu over him then there must be something wrong.

    Surprised Vitinha hasn't been getting a game as well, he's much better than Bruno Costa or Matheus Uribe.

    Vitinha is special, hope he continues on the bench in the next games eheh

    Good win today, not a particulary good exhibition, but we got the 3 points. Good to see Darwin gaining some momentum
