    The39thStep Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbour?

    Anywhere between 30-50 ultras marched into the Sporting training ground and physically attacked the players. Das Bost their leading goalscorer required 5-8 stitches for head wounds . They've got the Portuguese Cup Final Sunday but its inevitable now that players are likely to leave the club after this . The President of Sporting is a loudmouth crackpot , he's publicly named and shamed players calling for them to be dropped and he's now threatening to sue the President of the Portuguese Parliament for slander.Sporting lost there last game and lost their Champions League spot , they'll be in Europa next season.
    Chronicle of a sad day for Sporting Clube de Portugal

    A bad day for Portuguese football. As a Porto supporter I understand that there's lots of politics and dodgy dealing in the game, there's never an excuse for attacking your own players though.

    When I lived in Porto the feelings were that Porto hated Benfica who hated Porto. Everyone thought that Sporting was liked a little because they were OK, not massively exciting, but never dull. This changes a lot. Most will be horrified by this behaviour, most will support the players, most will want strong actions to be taken against the perpetrators. Let's hope that is what happens.

    Fuck me. And we thought Arsenal fans were bad.

    Their president is a lunatic.

    Sporting's share price has dropped by 17%. Apparantly some 20 odd ultras have now been arrested . Funny thing is is that although Sporting finished third they won the League Cup, made the semis of the Europa League and are in the Cup Final Sunday, which isnt that bad a season really.

    Their season has, arguably, been as good as Porto. Maybe we Portista should give the players a bit of a kicking. You know, para encorajar os outros

    The League is the League though , thats the most important thing to win and breaking Benficas four year stranglehold on it was a real achievement. Don't know about kicking Chelsea but I've a grim sense of another underwhelming display against a team that we really should be beating into tomorrows FA Cup.

    Just did a quick search to see if Portuguese football has any match fixing stories and at a very quick glance and this story came up including top teams Rio Ave and Benefica
    Reports: Rio Ave players charged in match-fixing scam
    its as if football players arent paid enough

    Wolves are just about to sign Pele from Rio Ave so hope hes not one of those accused. Rio Ave were subject to an investigation about betting patterns against Benfica last year but I dont think anything came of it?

    There's been rumours of corruption ever since I moved to Porto 12 years ago.

    Things you couldnt make up. Sporting got beat in the Portugal final by Aves, a team who have spent only three years in the Portuguese top flight since 1930.Bit like Bournemouth beating Spurs or Liverpool in a final this season

    I didn't see the match so cannot comment on the on pitch performance, but I wonder how much the Sporting players were psychologically affected by the attacks. I wonder if they just couldn't get their heads in place for the match. I can't help but feel that I'd be going through the motions rather than giving it my all.

    Spanish football club presidents can be a bit temperamental. Jesus Gil, former Athletico Madrid president, put a live baby crocodile on the table at a board meeting. He said the team needed more bite.

    I think they are going to lose a few players in the close season.

    If this how some supporters behave, who can blame them? The financial cost to the club is going to be high, let alone the cost in player confidence on pitch, and consequently club success.

    Couldn't make it up part 2. Aves the Cup winners didn't register the documents required with the Portuguese Federation in time so they're not able to play in the Europa League.

    Das Bost? What a fucking excellent name for a striker.

    That's dreadful! What a disaster for them. So much prestige and money lost.
