History:

September 1893. Out of nothing, as a secret ambition unfolded by a tough and inflexible reality, FC Porto has been founded. António Nicolau d´Almeida, a fine sportsman and an expert Oporto Wine trader, invited, in the quality of F.C. Porto president, FC Lisbonense to a football match. It was the first appearance in a football match for the club, the most ancient page written in more than an hundred years of history.

Deep and insightful enthusiasm marked the years that followed F.C. Porto foundation. The goal of José Monteiro da Costa was to unite the efforts of the local community with the strong English representation in Oporto. This led to extinction of Grupo Recreativo "O Destino" in favour of F.C. Porto. It was the beginning of a solid structure.

The founders were men strongly determined to engender a symbol, a crest or an icon, in which future generations would have pride on. Their remarkable initiative is still remembered. Blue and white were the colours chosen, as meaning of pureness, calmness and stillness of mind. The colours were represented, at that early time, in the Portuguese flag.

FC Porto evolved its purposes to national and universal goals. In the first crest, the symbol
was, of course, a football ball with the FCP. initials. Twenty years later the Oporto city shield becomes a vital part of the FC Porto badge. In 1948, the 3-2 victory over Arsenal, at the time known as the best team in the world, was a proof of the blue and whites’ potential.

Over the years, FC Porto grew as the conquests were becoming bigger and as its purposes were becoming greater. The symbol of a region astounded the country and surprised the world. The 1980’s were one of the most memorable decades. In 1987 and 1988, FC Porto conquered the European Champions Cup, the Intercontinental Cup and the European Super Cup – an outstanding deed, a proof of the success of a special approach to sports. Few years later, F.C. Porto achieved a goal that no other club in Portugal dared to accomplish. Five championships in a row was a remarkable act, another great page in the clubs’ history.

Nowadays, the world changed and Portugal too has evolved. Sports reality is now more complex, but FC Porto remains at the top. The club remained winning and the dynamics persisted. FC Porto is now represented all over the country and all over the world.
The Centro de Treinos e Formação Desportiva PortoGaia and the Estádio do Dragão are modern infrastructures of world class. The future shines, as the club conquered the UEFA Cup, in the season 2002/03, the UEFA Champions League, in 2003/04, the Intercontinental Cup, in 2004, and the Europa League, in 2010/11. At the end of this last season, FC Porto became the most titled portuguese club.

Beyond the reality that surrounds football, F.C. Porto showed its greatness in other sports. The honours achieved speak for it. The club is also strong in basketball, handball, roller hockey, billiards, swimming, athletics, adapted sport, motorsports, boxing, camping, chess, fishing, karate and weightlifting. These teams contribute to this history of success and ensure the diversity and necessary involvement in the community’s well-being.​

This can't go worse than last season so I'm pretty optimistic about this new start.

We need to make quality acquisitions though. Considering the probable exit of players like Fernando, Mangala or Carlos*son, there'll a lot of work to do for the scouting and coaching staff...let's wait and see, hopefully Lopetegui knows his shit.

For now, Iturbe and Castro gone as expected.
Newcomers are GK Ricardo (ex-Académica) and Daniel Opare, an apparently versatile full-back we got from Standard Liège. Both players came on free transfers.
Evandro from Estoril is also basically official, his father already confirmed the deal but you never know for sure in football.

Kind of bad news are the new kits. I found a few more pics of the home jersey so this is very likely to be official.

Here they are: http://tadenoite.org/oficial-novas-camisolas-do-fc-porto-20142015/

Could be worse, but there's just too much white...I sort of dig the retro style though. Like it usually happens, maybe they'll look better in action.

The kits seem to be right. Porto's instagram has posted a teaser photo and the detail is exactly like the leaked photos.

Anyway, there's literally dozens of rumours flying around concerning players, so I'll just worry about either official transfers or post-WC rumours.

I kinda like it.
It looks an old school kit from 90s.

The sponsor will make it worse as allways.
We need to wait how it looks in the players before taking more conclusions about it.

We should be more worried about the away kits. I hope they are fake. Pinto da Costa would never allow a Pink Jersey. I hope:(

I had a GK shirt like that when I was 9 and dumb enough to get a GK shirt.

Leaked teasers of what I presume will be the 2nd kit:





It's not that ugly ass camouflaged shit it seems, which is kind of a relief. Also I like orange, so (Y)

EDIT
Seems like they're not legit after all, someone created a fake Warrior Football Portugal account on FB :mad:


New and official first kit teasers:







I'm afraid of the end result, but these actually look good :(

Official home kit. At first glimpse I was like "this isn't bad after all", now after taking a close look at it I think I fucking love it. Great job by Warrior (Y)

Varela (Portugal)
Mangala (France)
Defour (Belgium)
Ghilas (Algeria)
Reyes (Mexico)
Herrera (Mexico)
Carlos*son (Colombia)
Quintero (Colombia)
Fucile (Uruguay)
Opare (Ghana)


Those are the 10 players representing FC Porto in the World Cup. Respect! (Y)

Hopefully the ones we need to sell kick ass and we get good offers for them...either way, here's wishing they all have a successful tournament.
