Introducing Orlando Mac! is excited to welcome the newest member of our writing team, Orlando Mac. Orlando is well-versed in all matters having to do with the sport in Portugal, and he will bring a sense of humor to the site. Here’s his introduction:


I’m Orlando Mac, Sam after having seen some of my work invited me to join his team.

I was highly impressed with the job that Sam has done on this site. I appreciate the amount of time, dedication, and commitment involved in producing such a great resource for the Portuguese futebol fans, so I welcomed the opportunity to help spread the word.

Some of you will be familiar with my name as I have been posting regularly to all the major (English Language) Portuguese soccer sites for decades.

For those of you who aren’t, I am a passionate Portuguese fan that takes a serious look at the game, but who also likes to interject some fun into the equation from time to time.

I believe that as a writer/media member it is important to move the needle, the worst reaction you can have is apathy. So from time to time I like to play devil’s advocate just to see the reaction.

Life is about learning and I have learned a lot from being a regular member of Portuguese football websites. The different perspectives have broadened my views on many a subject even when I didn’t agree with the commenter, and I have relied on many to give me a deeper insight into the game.

There are so many great posters on these English language sites and I welcome them to participate, comment, and join us here at Please make us a regular stop in your tour of the Portuguese football sites.

I am new here so I hope you can welcome me in to the family, and I look forward to many friendly spirited debates on the subject we all love, Portuguese Futebol.
