disappointed that he didn't call up Ruben Pinto. Would have liked to see him get his first minutes this season.

I agree.

1-0 Setubal. Rafael Lopes scores to put the home side ahead.

Cardozo really wanted to win the top goalscorer award today lol. I think he took 14 shots before he finally got the goal at the end of the game. He must be pissed that Lima got a weak penalty against Sporting.

A lot of players looked disinterested. Bruno Cesar still can improve on his playing style, but I can't complain about his top class commitment.

Luis Martins was pretty good especially considering he played a total of THREE positions during the game. He keeps things simple and is tidy in possession.

Emerson came on as a sub (why??? lol) but actually made an assist!

still waiting to catch the game. (guide lied to me, it says it was gonna give the Benfica game but instead it's showing the Estoril match) So decided to look at the highlights. Seemed like we were very wasteful with our chances, Rodrigo missed an open net, and Cardozo wasted a lot of good chances before finally getting the goal. I gotta say for next season, we need to look for a new cb. Despite having an amazing gk in Artur, we are still conceding to many goals, and i think the big problem is that we didn't replace Luiz. Since he left last season in January, we've been conceding way to many goal, even in matches that we completely dominate from the first minute. I like Garay but i just don't think he's at Luiz level. Look at today's goal for example, it was completely his fault, just poor decisions at times. Really wish Sidnei was better mentally, he would have replaced Luiz perfectly imo.
