    Dissent in the dressing room

    After a woeful performance against S.L. Benfica, heads clashed in
    the Sporting dressing room. I was not happy at all with his display and
    let him know exactly how I felt.

    Before deciding on any disciplinary action, I wanted to speak to the player
    to see his side of the argument. If he accepts the blame for his poor showing, I'll
    let him off with only a warning this time

    Deeply disapointed. I sense a bit of an ego here so fined him 1 week wages

    I will not put up with this sort of dissent! Straight on the Transfer List.



    But just when I thought the matter was over, this happened.

    We should be able to see our way through the the Knock-Out rounds
    easily enough. Not much opposition in Group D

    The Taca de Portugal drew a mouth watering tie between Lisbon Rivals
    S.L. Benfica and Sporting Club de Portugal.

    Very disappointed. We never felt out of this game but Marítimo always seemed to find
    a way to keep us on the back foot.

    Out-skilled, Out-matched and Out-gunned.
    An Oscar Cardozo hat-trick put us to the sword.

    Youngster Bruno Wilson made his Sporting debut in this match and the 16 year old Defender
    put in a great shift, finishing the match with a 7.10 rating. I had been closely following his
    progress in training and felt he was ready to step up to the Senior team after impressing for
    the U19s.

    It pains me to see Benfica take such a commanding lead while draws have left us
    competing in the chasing packs.

    Despite only joining Swansea City in the sumer window, David has found himself surplus to requirement at
    the Liberty Stadium. I was a big fan of him when he was a Liverpool. A quick, agile striker who showed moments of brilliance. I always felt he could excel in the right environment. He's been placed on the transfer List and we're currently negotiating a fee believed to be in the region of €150K

    The Danish Left Back who plays for Genk in Belgium has found himself on the fringe
    of first team action this year, and with only 6 months left on his contract, I've
    offered him a deal to come to Lisbon at the start of the 2014/15 season. This deal
    is part of my long term vision for the club since our current starting right backs are only
    contracted to the club through loan deal. I'll be retraining him to play RB

    He may have grown up supporting Benfica but Rosa's footballing talent cannot
    be denied. Having moved from Benfica to Belenenses during the Summer, a leg break
    has put his long term future in jeopardy. I've a €300K tabled and at only 24 years of age,
    he should still have a fine future ahead of him after some work with our physios.

    January Transfers


    IN

    David Ngog: A €130K bid was accepted but the deal fell through after I refused to
    meet the players wages demands. He wanted 50Kp/w and I was not willing to even
    tough that figure.


    Miguel Rosa: The club accepted a €375K offer for the 25 year old Portuguese midfielder.
    I've arranged the deal to go through int eh summer window since he's injured and stands
    a better chance at getting 1st team football at his current club after he recovers from his
    injury.



    Brian Hamalainen: We've agreed a pre-contract that will come into effect on July 1st, 2014.
    A strong solid Left back who can also play further up the wing an an attacking role. At only 24, he
    has a big future ahead of him.

    Bosco: This 19 year old Brazilian striker came to my attention when a scout rang the office with
    clear excitement in his voice. I sent the scouting team to South America to find a young striker who had all the qualities I like in a player: pace, balance, strength, flair, workrate, technique, passing, finishing; a Complete Forward who can play in any role up front basically. He cost me €1.2M and I allowed him to go back on loan to the club for the rest of the seasons but we may have a very good player for season to come.

    Out

    Fredy Montero: I didn't really want to see this guy go but his form had dropped significantly and
    he was startign to cause moral drops int he dressing room. He seriously under proformed during most of the season and I was glad to get €1.9M for him so the club broke even on the player.

    Quite a disapointing monht. One exhillerating game but the lack of depth in the squad
    is startling to show how far behind the other big two we really are.

    Managed to keep Cardozo quiet but Lima scored from a corner on 11 minutes to end our cup run.

    Injury to hero goalkeeper Patricio was a scary moment. Wasn't sure how long he'd be out for but thanks fully it was 2-3 weeks.


    My back up Goalkeeper, Marcelo Boeck, came in for 4 games and did well, even if he did concede 11 goals.

    I genuinly didn't know weather to laugh or cry. This was an absolute epic of
    a game but I never like to concede as many goals as that so it's bitter-sweet.

    Team Pld Won Drn Lst For Ag G.D. Pts
    1st Sporting Lisbon 2 1 1 0 7 6 1 4
    3nd Olhanense 2 1 1 0 3 1 2 4
    3rd P.Ferreira 2 1 0 1 6 6 0 3
    4th Gil Vicente 2 0 0 2 1 3 -2 0

    Despite my win putting me top, the group is still wide open and any of the top 3
    could still go through.

    Throughly outclassed. I was 0-3 down by the time I put one past them.
    Disappointing result especially since I was at home.

    It was in our hands. Win and we go through tot he Quarter Final. We couldn't
    score when it mattered though and this is another peg in what is turning into a disappointing season.

    The End

    I went into my first game in February against the side second from bottom.
    I was fairly confident of a good result but after being solidly beaten on the pitch, I
    know enough was enough.

    Was hoping this could have been a good save but alas, it was just not meant to be.
