We got fined 17,000 Euros for stoning your bus after the 5-0 game; sorry about that.
What the hell is going on in Uruguay? Own teammates going at each other. Ridiculous. That's some some South Americans never make it big in Europe, bad mentality.
Di Maria: " I would like to come back to Benfica someday".
2018 squad...David Luiz and Di Maria come back!
"Melhor clube do Mundo em fevereiro"
Hello..I'm an everton fan. Going back about 4 years or so (you had played away vs Celtic, early November 2007) I met a big crowd of Benfica fans in Stanstead airport.
Fantastic bunch of lads and had a couple of photos taken with our benfica/Everton flags.
I'm trying to locate them!! Have any of you got an idea where I can find any photos? Like, it there a fan website were these can be uploaded?
Thanks in advance.
PS- sell us Cardozo on the cheap!!
How many Portuguese players in Benfica's normal starting line-up?
I am just curious as I don't get to read much on Benfica's youth system.
Not many bud Our youth system was neglected for many years but we now have some really promising youth players coming up. Hopefully Benfica will actually give them the same opportunity to play as is give to the S. American players.......
Its true. There was a while when we would feature ~5 players in the lineup. But since our championship it has gone down. These days were lucky if we get 2 Portuguese players in the starting XI.
But like Eurodad said we have some talent coming into the fold these days. The most notable players are Roderick Miranda, 6'4 CB, Miguel Victor another CB, Nelo 6'2 U20 striker (Nelson Oliviera).
That is good that they might slowly start to bring them back into the club through the youth ranks rather than relying solely on south americans.
Nelson Oliveira is the main surprise of the season. He needs to be more patient and mature, but here's finally a Portuguese youth striker Benfica (and Portugal) long time wanted.
Possible name in the Portuguese squad for the Euro Championship.
Nelson and Rodrigo emberged nicely this season, both racking up interested all over Europe.
Nelson is undoubtably on the squad for Euro, but I want him a starter, not a bench warmer. Let's keep this kid a starter on Benfica, he's started the past 2 games in a row. Works well with Cardozo, let's hope JJ keeps his relying on the kid so Paulo Bento can't say no to the kid.
Aimar to miss Mondays game
Pedro Mantorras is now the new embassador for Benfica!
Ola John: "Benfica is bigger than all of the Holland teams combined".
Big statement coming a Dutch player that played for Twente.
Europe has forgotten how big Benfica was, is, and how many people support this team throughout the world. We're not in the Guinness Book of World Records for nothing.
As the Portuguese saying goes: " Benfica didn't have a childhood, it was born big"
Somos enorme! Sempre Benfica! SLB4Life
