What’s with the goalkeepers making all these awful errors. It’s like every Portuguese game I’ve watched there’s been at least one!

Keepers are still in quarentine.

In all seriousness, the quality of the league is horrible these days so you get these stupid mistakes often

Find a new GK. :lol: Mind you don't sign the Porto one as he was awful last night.

Guimaraes quite a skilful team but they don't half hang onto the ball too long in the final third, particularly Edwards.

Think we'll see a red card in this aswell as some wild challenges so far.

Admittedly I've not watched much of the league so far this season, not as much as I have in the past anyway.

Vietto is just trash, I remember watching him when he came onto the scene in Europe with Villareal.

Vietto is strange because he has the talent an the showed it in Villarreal but he just.....idk man. We dont have a goal scorer and that is a real problem.

I've liked the look of Sporar from the little I've seen of him but yeah you could definitely do with a proper striker.

Good overrule by VAR.

Marcus Edwards has talent, just seems to lack confidence once he's in the box. Hestitates so much. What's the feeling of him in Portugal?

He has surprised me actually im not going to lie. I need to see a full season of him to get better judgement though.

Because our president is a twat and loaned him out with a 15M buy clause which West from activated.

Covid-19 could of at least done us all a solid and took out Varandas but nope even that was not enough.

Red was coming in this one with all the yellows in first half.

I don't know what's more infuriating, the lack of quality or the lack of urgency.

Why are we not using our subs when the players on the pitch can barely run by now?

Weigl and Zivkovic have gone to the hospital apparently, no news yet on how serious it is.

Shameful stuff once again in portuguese football

It was his debut for the first team, but honestly Eduardo Quaresma if given a consistent chance to play won’t take many years to be a potential starter for Portugal. The only decent player we have on that position now is Ruben Dias, Pepe is done, Fonte never was impressive.

And Sporar was a decent signing too. On the other side Acuna and Battaglia look the football version of Dumb and Dumber. Anyway first game in 3 months we cannot expect much from the teams.

This is the kind of shit that led to half the Sporting squad tearing up their contracts.

How I missed this... shit football, managers blaming refs and violent fans. The trifecta in the first couple of days after the quarantine.

What's the thing of Lisbon ultras with attacking their own players? Not even when we made some terrible seasons back in the 90s this happened

So basically Porto, Benfica, Sporting and Braga all failed to win this week. Would have made me a millionaire if I called that right!

I’m sure I’ve been reading that Atletico are showing interest there.

Feck them. All they do is rip us off in deals.

Elias, Vietto, Pongolle.

They should be black listed by Sporting.

I'm looking forward to the battle between Nuno Tavares and Marcus Edwards when Guimaraes play Benfica in precisely one month

Braga are in free fall mode it seems.

Sporting were terrible vs Pacos but its understandable with all the young players in the pitch.

- Eduardo Quaresma is going to be our de ligt. The quality and maturity in his game at just 18 years old is evident. He will be the real thing.

- Max was very secure as well. He reminds me of a young Rui even with the errors.

- Jovane has been the best layer for the past 2 games.

-Nuno Mendes debuts at just 17 years old. Didn't show much but I based on his potential he has all the makings of being Portugals starting left back in a few years.

- Happy to see vietto get injured as it means he will be forced out the lineup. I dont understand on the insistence in putting vietto out wide. he offers nothing and it leaves acuna stranded.

- Camacho can make a career for himself if he plays right back. Similar to Ricardo pereira. He has been poor these 2 games but I rather see him get minutes then ristovski especially since the season is over and we have nothing to play for.

The bold part about Jovane is a bit scary if you really think about it :P

I have similar opinion as you: I think Camacho is very focused, but he doesn't have enough spark to become a reliable top club winger. He should refactor himself. The base quality is there, though.

Max is secure, but i really don't think he will become a top keeper tbh.

What surprises me most is that Porto has an amazing generation of players, like Diogo Leite, Diogo Queirós, Fábio Silva, Baró, Fábio Vieira, Tomás Esteves and they are failing to take advantage of that. Porto used to be a club who was an example in taking the best out of good generations. I think they had lost their focus on the transfer activity... From a NT perspective it will be a pity if none of those players manage to get to the first team.
