    I think the number of times Sérgio has had to refresh his squad and play different styles of football to suit whichever players he's had at his disposal that particular season just tips it in his favour for me. You look at the team he had with cloggers like Moussa Marega & Héctor Herrera and then compare that to the team with Vitinha, Vieira, Díaz etc, they're almost complete opposites and both achieved so much.

    That's not to downplay how good Amorim has been btw, he's been unbelievable at both Braga and Sporting.

    Sporting are interested in signing Chiquinho from Wolves apparently. It's a bit of a downgrade on Edwards role in the team but at €4.5M could be a good investment.

    Wolves apparently interested in Francisco Moura from Famalição. I'd be very happy with that.

    Rodrigo Gomes going to Atleti for €15M after we had a deal agreed for months. So pissed off.

    We’ve signed a Goalkeeper :love:

    Kovacevic in from Rakow. 6’4 and decent with his feet, hopefully a huge signing as Adan and Israel were both pants last year

    Chico linked with moves to Bayern & Atleti for €30M. That's an absolute horror show for Porto if he leaves for such a small fee.

    I think so yeah, more in terms of potential than current ability though. If you look at some of the other fees for young Portuguese players recently €30M for Conceição is really cheap.

    I have a bad experience with super expensive players coming from the portuguese league :laugh: That's why I ask.

    We trashed more than 80m for Quaresma and Joao Mario, still hurts :laugh:

    Haha I feel your pain bro. €40M on Fábio Silva hurts me every day.

    Chico is the real deal IMO.

    Now he's signing for us again! Fair play Wolves, did not expect that to happen after Atleti were interested. Very exciting young player.
