    5-0 against Braga, ******** me what a joy our attack can be.

    I've always hated them (other than their gorgeous stadium) for being such a bogey team.

    What should have happened in the cup, we had as many if not more chances in the cup.

    Bragas defense is awful.

    But Trincão is in his best form, 1 goal and 2 assists he was man of the match today.

    Quaresma with another fantastic performance, he's cementing his place in the team and we don't even have Diomande back, who is in the AFCON final today. If he keeps this up we might have a replacement for when we sell Inacio.

    25 goals in 5 games. This team is cooking.

    Also, every time Moutinho touched the ball he got whistled. Love to see it.

    It's amazing how he went from seemingly dead and buried after a poor loan in Germany and completely ignored at the start of the season.
    Hopefully he can keep growing, he's been immense since that Porto game every chance he's had.

    That Quaresma goal was outstanding. Nice foot work. Great victory over a typically tough rival.

    Also Benfica drew with guimaraes, sadly they got a 90th minute equalizer after playing against 10 men for 30 minutes.

    Equal on points with a game in hand

    Lol and Di Maria throwing a fit because they didn't get 12 minutes of added time. Even against 10 they were inferior.

    Meanwhile they played against 10 men when Florentino should've gotten a second yellow card.

    Don't mind the this mouth-breathing troglodyte. He's used to flopping on floor for fake PKs. Argentine won an entire fake World Cup acting like uncivilized animals.

    Golo! Perfect start, 2 minutes in and we opened the scoring from a corner and some weird defending. Morita gets the credit

    Goloooo Pote makes it 2 - it all looks so easy but great play by Trincão on the left

    Trincao is absolutely in form but I must say, it feels great to not have Esgaio out there and to have Geny back.

    it's night and day, this formation is so reliant on full backs that have quality in attack and give width

    I know our European second leg will allow us to give extra rest, but surely makes sense to make a sub?

    Things have slowed to a crawl but considering we have games every 3 days it makes sense. Moreirense hasn't produced any danger so far.
