  1. Re: PORTUGAL – 1st and 2nd Division extensive thread - Discussion Thread Thanks. I think Kléber needs a real manager before he starts playing at his full potential. He has perfect athletic abilities to perform at a top level in his position and his technique is almost as good as Falcao's when it comes to trapping the ball. I suppose he lacks the killer instinct and jumping ability which makes Falcao two steps ahead of your average forward' date=' but the difference is that Falcao had two extremely competent managers to help reach the next level. Kléber has had none. In short, I'd never sel
  2. Re: PORTUGAL – 1st and 2nd Division extensive thread - Discussion Thread Lots of ratings done today! Where to start?... Maybe with the biggest money-maker team this term: Gil Vicente. I had 6 big risers listed on the risers section. Unfortunately, SM decided to cape Gil Vicente's risers at 80 so nobody got beyond that. Hugo Vieira, Luís Manuel, André Cunha, Claudio, Caiçara and Facchini all rose to 80. My predictions on the first three were correct, but I had expected higher for the other ones (81/82). Anyway, all of them should get 82 in the next ratings change, provided they keep their plac

  4. Re: PORTUGAL – 1st and 2nd Division extensive thread - Discussion Thread Meanwhile SM has finished with the Eredivisie and started with the smaller teams in the Portuguese League - Feirense and Rio Ave. I'm very pleased that I nailed the three biggest risers in Feirense (Ludovic +6; Diogo Cunha +5; Mika +6). You'll see that all of them were listed correctly in the risers section. The only riser I misjudged was Nuno Henrique. I predicted an 80 but SM went for 78 instead. It doesn't make sense to give Ludovic and Diogo Cunha the 80 and leave Nuno Henrique out of the contingency, but whatever.
  5. Re: PORTUGAL – 1st and 2nd Division extensive thread - Discussion Thread Precisely. We were disgusted after he left. He said a hundred times that he wouldn't, only to resign at the first opportunity. The 15M€ were useful of course, but I'd much rather have AVB still as our manager. The timing was awful too as most of the good managers available were already tied down to new contracts. Personally I'd hand my season ticket back with a letter to the president if he sat on our bench for what's left of this season. That said, I don't think he'll leave Chelsea this year.
  6. Re: The Drafting League Another fantastic draw. I'm in the 15th place now. Yeah!
  7. Re: Official Chelsea FC Thread I don't think Chelsea is going anywhere whilst their team is so Mourinho-esque (Cech, Terry, Cole, Essien, Lampard, Obi Mikel, Drogba, Malouda, Kalou...). This team might have been very good half a decade ago, but not any more. Chelsea made two good signings ever since Mourinho left: Mata and Ramires, maybe throw Sturridge in as well. The rest was just plain average.
  8. Re: PORTUGAL – 1st and 2nd Division extensive thread - Discussion Thread Of course not. That's just a minimum fee release clause for externals. The actual sum we need to pay for an unilateral termination of his contract (without negotiation) would be the total of his wages until the end of said contract. Even so, I reckon VP will be sensible enough not to demand all the money. It was his misdoing after all. http://vitorpereirajafoidespedido.com/
  9. Re: PORTUGAL – 1st and 2nd Division extensive thread - Discussion Thread In all my years as a Porto fan I've never seen such a pathetic display. I've never been this humiliated since our heavy loss against Nacional da Madeira six (!!) years ago. Last season we were easily one of the strongest sides in Europe. This season our displays on the pitch are nothing short of pure mediocrity. Our chairman has to sack the manager AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. We're out of the Cup, most likely out of the CL and if we keep things as they are the league will follow suit.
  10. Re: Official Bundesliga Discussion Thread Amazing game by Reus against Werder. He's such a talent, I hope he moves to a bigger German club.
  11. Re: Official Euro 2012 Qualification Thread Of course you would! Let the titans fight between themselves while England sneaks away against the weakest opposition.

  13. Re: PORTUGAL – 1st and 2nd Division extensive thread - Discussion Thread He wasn't loaned out. Santos demanded that Danilo only left the team in January so that he could play in the CWC. I have no idea, I suppose it depends if he'll come to play as a RB or as a CM.

  18. Re: PORTUGAL – 1st and 2nd Division extensive thread - Discussion Thread And Walter. Kleber is a good player, but Walter isn't an option for competitive matches despite scoring the odd goal more often than not. I reckon we're still looking to bring an extra striker in January.

  20. Re: Official Euro 2012 Qualification Thread Bosnia was destroyed, as expected. And the result was not fair since both Bosnian goals were bad calls by the referee (non-existent PK and an offside goal), and he also missed a crystal clear PK for Portugal. Should have been 7-0 instead of 6-2. Oh well...
