"Would you like to sign Bruno Alves?"

"Him, Ronaldo and Messi."

Don't think so mate; Casa Ferreirinha 2004 or 08 Barca Velha Red around  £400/bottle.

This man is an expert on beer. He knows nothing about wine.

If you see him, do not approach. Feel free to throw things at him, though.

Wine poofs are up in arms I see.

As it happens Inigo, I am currently enjoying a vintage 2016 £5.50 bottle of white wine which may be from Australia but seems to have an Irish name. First glass was bit harsh, but my taste buds are now numbed and ready to receive the rest of the bottle.

So many false dawns, I take these pressers with a pinch of salt these days.

Hopefully the pish we've been watching is not the real Pedro.

Drink to forget, especially this fucking season.

@Queen's_highway deal with this cheap, beer swilling beachcomber, will you?

Been to the Algarve numerous times in the last 10 years and there are excellent wines there. Very reasonable too.

Andyou cant beat an ice cold Super Bock or Sagres 👌

Young line up on Sunday, I would expect Barjonas/Beerman/Bates/Wilson all to start.

Maybe being a bit optimistic but I thought he's starting to appreciate the expectations at our club.  Wish to fuck he'd stop going on about wonderful Portuguese wine as if every other country's wine is inferior, does my nut in

I am beginning to find all this shit about Portuguese wine is really pissing me off. We have a Manager talking shit about Portuguese Wine just after a significant defeat. What is there to laugh about? It's just more and more bullshit every week now.

He's talking shite, yes, but fuck me the journalists ask the same question over and over again. What is he meant to say!!

I have doubts about Pedro, but any time I have watched his recent press conferences I always have it in my mind that he gets it. 

I just hope he can walk the walk. 

Clear to me he doesn't rate the squad, and I also took from this that he doesn't think the group have trained well tactically prior to him joining. 

It's alarming some of the shite we have seen on the pitch from him. 

Big part of me can believe that he is playing the board to show how shite we are, in order for the greater good. 

Might be wishful thinking, and I'm still not convinced, getting there though.

I'm glad he's said the results and performances need to be completely different next season and that he's been using the games to find out about the squad, then said everything has to change! He's figured out they're real shitebags!

I really like Pedro and the way he handles the media. He seems focused on his plan.

He can't wait to get rid of the duds you can tell.

I believe he will do very well for us if he is given time.

During my formative years half a flagon of Triple Vintage and a bottle of Lanliq was considered 'posh', so a nice Portuguese wine is fine by me.  

PC does seem to understand the club, but, it really would be premature to judge him either way at the moment.  Let's see who he brings in during this transfer window, it will speak volumes to his ability AND give us an indication of the board's intentions going forward. Hopefully he can offload a considerable amount of the dead-wood.

Seemed to me to be a bit of a Picador-like performance by Pedro.   Starting to sharpen his verbal jabs at the journos.    These sessions could get quite combative next season as they continue to try to bait him.    To my mind his whole body language, and his verbal jabbing, indicates he'll stand up for himself and the Club.   Pity more of a 'jab 'em a bit' attitude could not be found from Directors or the MD or the absentee Chairman on handling the media.

Also seems a bit of a case of the 'el vino did flow' (or will flow) is emerging.

Portugal is the 11th biggest wine producer in the world apparently, sandwiched between Germany at 10 (nobody likes a Reisling) and Russia at 12 (Russian wine ffs!!!).

What people need to realise is that there is no bad wine, only underdeveloped taste buds!
