Pacos continue to climb the Liga table with another win today. 3-1 with Stephen at CM for the full 90.

Eustaquio in the Liga Nos starting 11, and ranked as the top central midfielder.   https://desporto.sapo.pt/futebol/primeira-liga/artigos/votacao-fc-porto-em-maioria-do-onze-da-12-a-jornada-

Scored today in a 1-1 draw... very well-placed shot.

Does this mean Pacos has clinched a European spot?   Or just that he really like the moons of Jupiter?

Iooooo!! :D

To expound upon the theme of Galilean moons, with Santa Clara's loss today in the Primeira Liga, Paços de Ferreira can finish no lower than 6th place. They also cannot finish higher than their current 5th place. So Europa Conference League it is!

I'm just curious... has anyone seen a situation like this before? There's another Portugueese media outlet saying Eustaquio (and his teammate Costa) to Porto is confirmed for the summer, and we've seen a ton of these through the year. But on the other hand, you've got the club chairman and Mauro himself saying no discussions have taken place whatsoever. I get they have an interest in raising his price, but I don't understand how their stories could be so far apart with no comments from anyone.

Just typical Portuguese media honestly.

Napoli joins the party, cause why not?

I'm gonna hold off on posting updates before something gets acknowledgement / confirmation. I think this is gonna be a David-esque transfer window where like a dozen different clubs get linked to Steph. I'm gonna start taking these outlets with a grain of salt, especially considering Record previously reported a Porto deal was already closed. Something should happen, and it could be as big as Napoli or as small as Vitoria de Guimaraes... it's anyone's guess!

That article has a picture of his agent at the Napoli offices.

Imo Napoli would be better than Porto, just for the fact that he'll be playing tougher competition. Both of them are guaranteed European football with Napoli battling with Juve for the final Champions League spot in Italy.

 

Plus just think about the stars he would be playing with which is why I do want to see him go to Serie A and play for Napoli. It would be huge for our program especially if he ends up there.

Indeed, but he looks more like a tourist than on official business.

BTW - he also represents Reinildo, David's Lilie team-mate.  While less intriguing, it would be really fun to watch them both together.  A la Hutch & Larin.

Yeah, for the purpose of this site, I generally use “Canadian” to refer to someone who has repped, or is willing to rep, Canada.  Place of birth is just a matter of coincidence of you choose to rep another nation.  

If they don't consider themselves Canadian, why should we?  I've never understood this.

Before we get too excited, let's bear in mind that Stephen's agent represents many players and there's no indication that Stephen is the subject of any discussions that are happening. 

That said, the possibility that Eustaquio's name may come up is certainly exciting. I don't think it's far-fetched to imagine them being interested in signing him for a modest fee (4-6M euros) and using him as a depth player, at least to start.

Anyways, that's it for Pacos' season. Steph played pretty poorly these last 2 games, but hopefully that's more a case of being checked out than anything else. Great season for them, even if they're about to lose all of their best players lol. Let's hope he finds the right team to move to.
