Absolutely storming it.
Month in Review: May
During the month of May we got to see Gauthier and his team lose for the first time since the first of July last season. Despite the crushing 3-5 loss to Chao Pak Kei the club was able to recover after that. May was mostly the month for cup play with two cup matches. Sporting would win both and are now set for the quarter final against Chao Pak Kei.The loss brings the club down to second place at the end of the month.
Match of the Month: 23 May Macau U23's
Facing Macau U23's in the fifth round of the Taça de Macau saw Sporting have another outstanding match. In this match Sporting would dominate from the kickoff. The countries U23 proxy club were outmatched and outplayed during the 90 minutes. Timba Eder would be the man of the match scoring two goals. Sadly winger Gilberto Monteiro went down with an injury and will be out for a week.
Man of the Month:
Veteran midfielder Timba Eder was the most important player for the month of May. The 31 year old showed up and proved that age does not matter. He would score three goals and have an average match rating of 9.0.
Honestly I am a bit disappointed in the month. Yes we have advanced to the quarter finals but that result against Chao Pak Kei really has bothered me. Letting them score five goals really upset me. I just don't know what happened this month?? Seriously the production of the players was very disappointing. With five matches to go in the league we need to focus or we will not win the league.
What to look forward to in June:
June is the start of the transfer window and the club is looking to make a few moves. in league play there are two matches against Macau U23's and Cheoc Lun. In the Taça de Macau Sporting get to face Chao Pak Kei once again. This time they are looking to settle the score and get revenge from the last two meetings.
