Imortal Albufeira 1 - 2 Olhanense

A close game, Olhanense scoring in the 89th minute of normal time to grab the points. It wasn't a good game on a windy day. There were few scoring chances created. A reasonable crowd was on hand of about 250, not bad considering the late change of venue and including about 50 from Olhão.

The police were enforcing mask wearing on arrival, but once the game started ignored a group of Olhanense ultras who were not obeying the law. The FPF has increased the admission charge to €5!

Olhanese started with an attacking formation, often with five players up front. In vontrast, Imortal packed the midfield, playing with only two attackers. Both teams defended corners and set pieces with all eleven players in their own penalty area.

It took until the mid point of the first half for either side to create a goal scoring opportunity. Imoral's striker Duarte was way off target with a header from fairly close range. Moments later, Tidjane Baldé had a good shot blocked.

Olhanense responded. A long range effort by João Nobrega was pushed around the post low down by ´keeper Freitas.  Back at the other end, Portela had the ball at his feet for ages just outside the six yard box but perhaps couldn't decide what to do and lost possession. The game was end to end at this point, but with nothing much being achieved.  The visitors should have gone ahead on the half hour, but Matos totally failed to react to a good low cross with the goal at his mercy.

Mateus Vieira (Imortal) had a good shot stopped, then right on half time Baldé sent in a very decent cross which Duarte managed to scoop over the bar from three yards. But then over the weekend we have seen players of a higher standard doing much the same! 0-0 at half time.

Olhanense came out with some purpose after the break, but the opening goal went to imortal. Eight minutes in, Bruno Torres was hacked down just outside the Olhanense penalty area, on the angle. Torres took the free kick which Duarte headed home from close range, atoning for his earlier howler.

The lead lasted only a few minutes.  With the wind in their favour, Olhanense launched an attack down the left wing. João Nobrega sent in the cross which was deflected behind Imortal's defensive line. Matos was the first to react, stabbing the ball into the net from close in. There were some half hearted apeals for offside but nothing doing. Olhanense built on that, causing problesm in the home defence. Centre back Calado found himself with two opponents heading towards him and the ball, but in their zeal they managed to foul him! Williams Fadini made a last ditch sliding tackle to foil another attack.

Imortl went back on the offensive, Macedo having a hard shot parried back into the melée. The ball seemed to bounce around for ages before being seized by the ´keeper. Imortal's defender Tavares became the first player to see yellow for preventing him clearing the ball. Yes, seventy two minutes before the first booking. Some kind of record?

That peace did not last, there were three more yellow cards in the next ten minutes as things got a little tetchy. Imortal were often trying to play the ball out from the back when a hoof upfield might have been better. They rode their luck a bit until the 89th minute.

Another bit of defensive hestitancy and indecision ended up with Freitas sliding out of the penalty area with the ball in his hands. Just his momentum, nothing intentional, but a free kick nevertheless. It was just outside the penalty areato the left of the goal, about five yards in from the goal-line.

I don't know if Imortal's defence was not quite ready, but when the kick was lobbed over to the far post no-one moved except for Sergio Semedo, on hand to bundle the ball over the line. Olhanense celebrated as it the World Cup had been won. One of their coaching staff was booked for overdoing it.

There was still time for a sending off. Right over on the furthest corner of the ground from where I was, a fracas broke out with punches thrown. An Imortal player went down hard, the referee showed red to Zokhoi Djoulou who trudged off slowly right around the pitch. Baldé was booked for his contribution.

Game over, 2 - 1 to Olhanense but a game that could have gone either way. Olhanense stay top, Imortal are now sixth.

BING BONG LATE FIXTURE CHANGE!!

For reasons unknown, Imortal's game v Olhanense on Sunday will now be played at our place, ko 3pm / 1500hrs. Nice to let us know.

The Algarve Cup games that were supposed to be played on December 1st have re-appeared on the fixture list.

Imortal will be away to Portimonense B at the highly inconvenient time of 5.30pm! It being a holiday there are no buses back to Albufeira after 16.55 and no train until 20.34.

GD Montemôr 0 - 2 Imortal Albufeira

No way to get there at the weekend. Away games might as well be on the moon, except for just a couple! There may be more on Imortal's facebook page but that is no longer available to non-Facebook persons like me.

Imortal took the lead in the 14th minute with a goal by Mario Duarte but had to wait until ten minutes before the end for the second, scored by sub Mateus Vieira. The game saw a debut in goal for  Hans Freitas, with Nélio Pereira suspended after his sending off last week. Freitas managed to get booked.

Poor performance by the ref, only four yellows in the first half, five in the second.  The home team won 5-4 on yelllows.

Imortal remain fourth in the League. Their next league game is not until 28th November when they travel to top side Olhanense That's one I will be able to get to!

Befor that comes the short trip to Estombar on Wednesday evening to meet Carvoeiro United in the Algarve Cup. Undoubtedly the second string players will form most of the team.

IMORTAL 1 - 1 MONCARAPACHENSE

Imortal's fourth draw of five league games played. Iit was pretty dire stuff for much of the afternoon, with most of ther drama in the final moments which ended up with Imortal's goalkeeper Nélio Perreira being sent off and a few moments later one of the visiting players.

The first half was very poor. Neither side could keep the ball, there were too many long hopeful passes which were easily dealt with a both ends. Moncarapachense did manage an attack of sorts on 26 minutes, but experienced defender Pedro Rorigues did just enough to slow down the attacker, whose final effort was soft and wide. A couple of minutes later the visitor's ´keeper Tiago Maia tried a cheeky shot from free kick from inside his own half, hoping the wind would assist but it didn't, the ball droping nicely into his opposite number's arms.

Shortly before half time, Imortal defender Calado was booked for a bad challenge and moments later bundled over an opponent to concede a penalty. He was lucky not to get a second yellow. After the ritual protests, Luis Gaspar converted the spot kick to cue celebrations as if they had won the World Cup.

Much muttering in the stands at half time. Imortal had maanged only one half decent shot and nothing at all on target.

The first fifteen minutes of the second half consisted mainly of four substitutions and two more bookings to add to the five in the first half. Imortal were playing better, well they could hardly have been worse. A good move down the left between Williams Fadini (who was one of the better players all round) and Flavinho came to nothing when the final pass was blocked for a corner. For their part, Moncarpachense were playing five at the back, relying on the occasional counter attack. One such almost caught Imortal with too high a line, it was four v three but the final ball was feeble and wide.

Imortal continued to press, two really good tip-over saves by Maia denied  Emanuel Costa and later Rodrigo Macedo.

The equaliser came halfway through the half, a really good cross by Fadini eluded the goalkeeper and defenders leaving Macedo to slide in at the far post and score from close range.

Four more subs and three more bookings later and Moncarpachense had a gold plated chance to grab the points. A long ball caught out Rodrigues, he stumbed on the turn leaving Santos one on one with Pereira, fifteen yards from goal. His first shot was blocked, the rebound turned away for a corner, leaving him to beat the grass in frustration.

Four minutes added time were announced.  The visting 'keeper was booked for time wasting. A few seconds of added time to go and it all kicked off. Pereira dropped onto a loose ball in the customary fashion, one of the forwards made the usual half hearted attempt to get it and was penalised. Pereira stayed down, a scrum formed. Somewhere in the melée Pereira said or did something the ref didn't like and was shown red. Bedlam ensued for four more minutes, with everyone involved, much arm waving and shouting, even the three GNR officers were paying attention. One of the Moncarapachense subs, who had been booked earlier, got a second yellow for advancing onto the pitch and making threatening gestures at various Imortal players.

Once order was restored, Imortal made their final change with reserve goalie Hans Freitas replacing Tidjane Balde, the free kick awarded ages before was taken and the game was over.

Imortal's next game is on Sunday 7th away in Montemôr.

Pinhalnovense 1 -1 Imortal

A short report as obviously I could not travel there!

A good result at the league leaders, the first points they have dropped.

Imortal were 1-0 down at half time and made three changes.

Reward came in the 53rd minute with an equaliser from Mario Duarte.

The final twenty minutes or so minutes look like fun, with five bookings and two sendings-off, all but one guilty party being the home team.

In toal eight yellow and two red cards, about par for a Portuguese game!

Next Sunday Imortal host bottom club Moncarapachense with a 3pm / 1500hrs kickoff.

Imortal 1 -1 Juventude Évora

Some might blame the strong wind, but I think Imortal have mainly themselves to blame for dropping two points. After a dominant first half, capped with a good goal right on time, the second half was full of mistakes, too  many passes were going astray and the ball lost far too easily and far too often. They paid the penalty three minutes before the end of normal time when a pass floated in on the wind easily found Shibane totally unmarked just inside the penalty area. One touch to control and a superb shot wide of Nélio Pereira into the far corner gave the ´keeper no chance.

It was a sunny but windy afternoon, the wind blowing straight down the pitch. Imortal had the wind in their favour at the start. Tidjane Balde had an early chance with a header but was denied by a good save.  Imortal had the best of the game, keeping Évora mostly pinned into their own half. Imortal defender Fadini did though have to make a useful interception with a toe end to divert a cross that looked bound for the two strikers near him. He was called into action again when some good defensive work on a rather troublesome winger, Almeida, who switched wings at will and caused problems with his speed.

For all that, Imortal's finishing was either wayward or weak. They had managed only one effort on target as the half came to a close when things livened up a bit. Macedo was inches wide with a low long range effort jsust as the clock ticked to 45 minutes. Somehow the referee found three minutes to add to proceedings and in the second of those minutes a supeb cross from the right by Torres was met with a powerful close range header by Mario Duarte for the goal.

Évora came out for the second half with a lot more purpose and with the gusty wind in their favour were quickly on top. Imortal were limited to the odd counter-attack as the pressure mounted and problems began to increase. Pereira wa forced to finger-tip a dangerous cross over the bar as it caught in the wind. Almeida was still attacking on both flanks and joined by half time sub Shibane they had Imortal defenders well under pressure. But despite many efforts it was to no avail.

With 16 minutes remaining, Évora were reduced to ten men. Santos saw straight red for a challenge on Duarte. That red had been preceded by five yellows in that half hour or so since the interval. The ref obviously thought he would not meet his quota for the day and some of the cards were rather questionable.

Not longer after that, Shibane hit the top of the Imortal crosber with a header while goalkeeper and defenders could but watch. By this time the Imortal head coach was flapping his arms like a demented penguin as he could see the game slipping out of control.

Shibane had his reward with the equaliser, a flurry of substitutions broke up the game (five are allowed in this League) and resulted in five minutes being added on. Évora seemed happy to take the point and all ended fairly quietly.

Imortal now have no game for two weeks! The next home game will be on 31st October when Moncarpachense will be the visitors. A week earlier they will travel to Pinhal Novo, south of Lisbon.

More details from Sunday. The only goal was scored by Imortal defender Mario Duarte from the penalty spot on 57 minutes. Four Imortal players were booked, as were four of theirs and about  par for the course. During the eight minutes of added time at the end Imortal sub Bruno Pereira was sent off.

A glimmer of hope in that Vilafranquese are currently bottom of Liga 2 with two points from five games. A game I shall be unable to watch as I shall be in sunny Tonbridge that weekend catching up for two years loss of ale drinking.
