Season Three Review

I won't go through our fixtures or anything this year (partly due to not having screenshots) but instead I'll go through the winners of all Portugal's top four trophies as well as a couple of other league around the world.

Portuguese Primeira Liga

SL Benfica

SL Benfica just about got there in the end! Under the leadership of ex-Porto, Chelsea and Tottenham manager André Villas-Boas the famed Lisbon-ites recorded a long overdue title win. They finished on 68 points, one ahead of FC Porto on 67.

Portuguese Second League

Oriental Lisbon

Oriental coasted to the title in the end and will make their first appearance in the top flight in their 70-year history. Many tip them for relegation straight away but under manager Vitor Martins, 38, anything seems possible.

Taça de Portugal

FC Porto

FC Porto may have missed out on the title but they sure didn't miss out on any trophy at all. Paulo Fonseca continued the club's winning tradition and history by beating lowly Aves 3-0 in the final.

Portuguese League Cup

Sporting CP

Sporting CP didn't enjoy the same success under Leonardo Jardim as they did last season but they still got a piece of silverware after overcoming overachievers Rio Ave in the final of the League Cup.

Euro 2016


England are winning it all! Can anyone stop Roy Hodgson's men? The ex-Inter manager is fast creating a world power who have now won two major international tournaments on the trot.

Italy Serie A

AC Milan

Giants A.C Milan returned to glory as they capitalised on Udinese's late slip up to take home the Serie A crown and once again become kings of calcio! Milan have been something of a fallen giant lately and this title will be music to the Rossoneri fans.

Spanish La Liga

Atlético Madrid

They used to be the little boys of Madrid, but now, Argentine manager Diego Simeone is on the cusp of creating one of the world's footballing powers. If Atleti can continue this stellar rise to fame, who knows, maybe Real Madrid will be a thing of the past?

Great season Walt! And England... my God Woy!
Great season Walt, interesting too!
Josh_MU, Pauker thanks guys, the world of football never ceases to amaze ;)

BREAKING: Mudingayi Signs For Oriental

A Bola:
Portuguese Primeira Liga new boys Oriental Lisbon have confirmed the signing of ex-Inter defensive midfielder Gaby Mudingayi on a free transfer. Mudingayi, 34 will also take over the U19's Manager role.

Recently promoted Oriental Lisbon have signed experienced midfielder Gaby Mudingayi on a one year deal, with a clause meaning that once he plays 15 games his deal will automatically extend for one more year.

Mudingayi brings a wealth of experience to a side that will need it more than ever, as they embark on their first ever season in the top flight of Portuguese football. Mudingayi, 34, has spent the majority of his career in Italy's top flight, with teams as reputable as Inter Milan. He spent the majority of his career with Bologna, where he assumed well over 100 appearances.

The Belgian, who was born in the Democratic Republic of Congo, will also assume the role of Under 19's manager at the club and help develop the next generation of youngsters at the club. Hot prospects such as Pedro Monteiro and Dani are a part of the squad and Mudingayi revealed he was ecstatic at the opportunity to work with such talent.

Vitor Martins also praised the Belgian's belief in how football should be played. The former Torino midfielder is said to be an advocate for adventurous, passing play - something manager Martins wants his youth players to develop with.

Vitor Martins: "I'm delighted to have been given the opportunity to sign Gaby and I believe he can give us experience and quality for the season ahead. He's been there and done it before, he's used to the pressures and rigours of top flight football. He's also a very up and coming manager, and has a fantastic philosophy that I think we should let our youngsters develop in."

Gaby Mudingayi: "Moving to Oriental wasn't hard because they are a club with a lot of potential. Vitor Martins is doing a fantastic job here and I want to be apart of it and also help out. I've got my own managerial career to think about as well and this is the first step."

Ex-Inter player, Gaby Mudingayi...Even though he's shit, I support this signing fully due to his ex-Nerazzurri roots! :P
Nice signing Walt!
What a journey to the top! Now time to rub shoulders with the big boys. Awesome story, Walter :)
Nealão lool, the marquee tag makes you cringe a little doesn't it? xD

Josh_MU Cheers Josh :D

P-KIDDY Thanks P-KIDDY :) I'm coming for Sporting ;)
