Martins is a Nabaistard if you ask me.

Nabais update.

More like: (Calmly) "I am not prepared to answer that question." ;)

That's what we say to Rablador when he comes online.

I'm glad the embargo is gone, but I doubt our current chairman will be hanging around for much longer, as he is still 'Looking to leave'. I'd say there's going to be more developments as the seasons comes to a close. Thanks Paddy :)
not sure whether the takeover failure will be good or not for you, but good luck with it.

Also, when will this friendly banter stop and an update get put up? :P
Frustrating... but it hasn't held you back so far! Keep performing and the off-field issues will eventually be sorted out.

Feliks Update will be out soon :P

Griffo Nah, it's actually more stable now. I'll just keep on track with the football side of things :)

We Aren't Pushovers - Martins



Portuguese Football Express
Oriental head honcho Vitor Martins has said his side are stiff competition for every team in the league and that they shouldn't be taken lightly ahead of some big clashes for the Lisbon-based minnows.

Ahead of the final sprint towards the end of the league season, Martins' team face all of the big three, as well as Vitoria Guimarães and Braga, incredibly tough fixtures. Last time around Oriental came away with only two points from those five fixtures.

"It's a tough end of the season for us, but I'm confident we can get the results. We are a tough team to beat," Martins proclaimed. "We just came off a brilliant run of form, confidence is sky high, and we still know we have a job to do, I can't think of us being in a better place right now."

Oriental currently occupy 10th place in the Primeira League, much higher than many of the punters' predictions - most saying they would finish dead last. Yet after some quality wins, including an amazing fight back against Nacional Madeira, Oriental continue to defy expectations.

Sergio Liparoti's goal scoring form of late has been outstanding whereas China and Pedro Monteiro have played active roles in scoring and assisting from wide positions and in the centre.

"I'm really glad to see the team playing so well as a unit," Martins added. "They're all on the same page, and as a result creating some fantastic goals. I'm impressed."

Vitor Martins has garnered a somewhat reputation for approaching press conferences calmly, when he does attend them. He has more of a reserved manner and holds his cards close to his chest.
Martins is a great 'honcho' indeed.

Oriental Make Two Acquisitions


Shopping Spree: Oriental snap up Anthony Moris (above behind) and David on free transfers

Portuguese Football Gazette
Oriental Lisbon have confirmed the signings of two players, Belgian goalkeeper Anthony Moris and Brazilian full back David, both on free transfers. Moris was formerly of Belgian powerhouses Standard whilst David has spent his whole career at Recife-based Naútico.

Moris joins to provide competition for number one Rafael Copetti, who has done a fairly good job this season, his first in the Primeira League.

David joins on a free transfer, however Oriental dished out the small sum of £4k to buy the player's full rights from agent Leandro Bosso, who owned a 5% stake in the player, meaning the club will receive 100% of the fee if they choose to sell the player.

Fans were there to see their new arrivals presented and many were reacting positively. "These signings are great," said David Gonçalves, "they provide competition for places and experience in their own respective top flights."

Oriental are currently fighting it out in the Primeira League for the first time in their history, and they currently sit 10th.

Two nice signings there Walt!
