Ive always admired Porto's youth set up and i think its one that rivals Barcelona's and Bayern's....

Just read that Sporting Lisbon are 9th in the Primiera Liga and Sporting Lisbon B are 2nd in the Segunda Liga.
Next year the chances of both teams playing in the first league are pretty strong.

Now that would be interesting. Think of the match Sporting Lisbon vs Sporting Lisbon B. What's gonna happen there? :lol:

FYI, the captain of Indian Football team, Sunil Chetri was signed up by Sporting Lisbon B last July. He has played very very little there until now.
But I would be very happy if his team makes it to the first league. He has played in US earlier. By far the the best player of our team.

It's a shame we are still so behind others when it comes to football. :(

I do not think it is allowed for any 2nd Team to play in the highest league in the country

I, too, am perplexed at the idea of that happening. :?
Couldn't find any rules saying so.
Only that bottom two clubs would be relegated and top two from Segunda will move up in the first league.

Found it. "The second teams of all clubs from Primeira Liga are not entitled to promote " [source]
:)

In a way that would be so heart-breaking for the team that they are in 2nd but ineligible to be promoted.

I remember this discussion from elsewhere some while back, and someone brought up the rule that the reserve team and the senior team can't play in the same division under any circumstances. Basically, if the reserve team win their league and the senior team get relegated, the reserve team would also be relegated one division below instead of being promoted.

Now that is a ridiculous rule.
Height of insult : You think you're champions. Now go play in 3rd division.

I know they are trying to make things fair but thats pretty much a slap in the face for those kids who worked hard to win their league and there only a reserve team.

This. It would be ridiculous for any league to have two teams in the same division.

well, yeah, but there's never actually been such a precedent I think. Probably won't be either...

Last week, during an interview on a Brazilian talk-show, former fc Porto player, Casagrande, admited that porto's medical staff ordered him to take prohibited substances to improve his performance.
This happened during the 86/87 season, where fc porto beat Bayern Munchen on the Champions League Final!
Who's to say that he was the only one on doping?

Here is the video of the confession:

Very, very interesting! Thanks for the share.

However please note that Casagrande did not play in that final :( [source]

I know he didn't, we played very few games in fact.
But if a sub was told to use performance-enhancing drugs, i can only assume the team stars would receive similar treatment.

Definitely! A similar case happened in the final between Marseille and AC Milan with admittance that one or more Marseille players were doped.
