Hugo Almeida scored for Besiktas
Brumas older brother making headway in England
Helder Postiga scored for Real Zaragoza to help them win and escape relegation.
Diogo Amado signed with Sheffield United. Signing will be approved today. They are after Semedo, too.
Semedo had a great season. He went largely unnoticed.
Nuno Gomez joins Blackburn
Ricardo Vaz Te, let's see if he can ride the momentum.
Blackburn Rovers sign Portuguese youngster Fabio Nunes
Deportivo La Coruna is a team that I'm sure a lot of us Portuguese will be following this upcoming season. They're becoming like Besiktas...loaded with Portuguese players.
But Deportivo are in one of the best leagues in the world, La Liga.
Looks like Pizzi is on his way to Deportivo according to most Spanish and Portuguese sites.
Pizzi joins Andre Santos, Bruno Gama, Diogo Salomao and Ze Castro.
Tengarrinha signed with CSKA Sófia, Bulgaria.
Diogo Valente scored for Cluj, Romania, in the Supercup game that ended tied, and eventual won on PK shoot-out by Dinamo Bucharest
Francisco Santos Da Silva Junior scored for everton yesterday a cracking goal
U19 Paulo Jorge just signed with Blackburn; ABOLA is reporting.
That makes three portuguese players on the roster: Gomes, Nunes and Jorge.
Nuno Gomes scored a goal in a 2-0 win for Blackburn. Fabio Nunes also impressed, he's got skills like Nani.
Jose Semedo and Diogo Amado , former Sporting players, faced and lost against the Lions in the Albufeira cup while representing their current club Sheffield Wednesday.
Add Edinho Junior to make it 4.
Taborda, Bruno Madeira and Nuno Viveiros all starters for Brasov, the Romanian club drew 2-2 in the first league game of the 12-13 season.
Tonel scored the winner for Dinamo Zabreg that ensured the club 's participation in the group phase of the CL
Pizzi scored the tying goal (PK) in a 3 - 3 away at Valencia, for Coruna. August 26, 2012
He promptly got selected for the NT WC qualifying games (replacing the injured Almeida). Excited to see what he brings to the table.
Tiago Pinto, the son of Joao Pinto, has joined Deportivo. That makes 8 portuguese players on the roster.
I believe he'll be on their B team
Rui Pedro scored the winner for Cluj.
Bruno Madeira also scored in the Romanian league for Brasov
U-19 David Viana will join MLS side Real Salt Lake
This may not be the best thread to vent but I don't know where else this may fit.
I am someone that believes in nothing without sufficient evidence, however I am at a point now that I am completely convinced that Portugal and in particular Portuguese players are the most hated by in large, over any other country.
After watching Man U vs Galatasary today I went to Goal.com to read there player ratings.
My god man, I know that site is a joke but they gave Nani a 2.5/5.
I might be viewed as bias because of my name but I assure you if you watched that game he was easily there 2nd maybe 3rd best player on the pitch, alongside Carrick and Kagawa and perhaps rivaled by Valencia. He missed a penalty sure, but how does that impact the other 90 minutes he played.
Before the Euro I read a ton of annalist predictions and of course kept my eye on bigsoccer and It truly seems to me like if a player is Portuguese they will be picked on and or ignored for any thing of value they might have brought to the game/season. Ignorance for Portuguese soccer is huge, don't believe me? just start looking up player reviews after every game where a Portuguese player is featured or predictions for international matches or even how the Portuguese teams are rated in Europe, not by Uefa but by the people.
Anyway enough of that, I just can't figure out the cause of this.
