    I think Benfica picked up Freddy only for CL matches. He's not going to play in their league-- not challenging enough for him.

    I and some others were watching the RTPi feed through tvtuga or something. I posted the link in the last match thread because the feed was so outstanding. Is this the same as what you posted? If not, we may not be out of luck yet!

    What position does Di Maria play? He's left-footed isn't he?

    Is there any chance he sees the field??

    Freddy needs to get some time here if he is to continue his development.

    Of course there is a chance.

    And he played in the last CL game -- but that was with a different manager.

    Sorry, left the "s" off of "names" in my original post. With apologies for taking the low road: "Quim" has another, slang, meaning and it being positioned next to Butt was a little funny, in an admittedly juvenile way.

    my early predictions for this game.

    there is an 80% chance that Adu will not appear on the field.
    there is a 10% chance he'll get some minutes in the game but not do much.
    there is a 10% chance he'll score a goal (or have a nice assist) in this game.

    overall, it should be an entertaining match as Benfica try to hold onto their 2-1 advantage from the first leg.

    finally, the partner up front that cardozo needed is back..viva di maria!!!


    our defence is ********ed, katsorouanis and luisao both not fully fit..so that means we only have a 18 year old youth centreback to play LOL

    Everybody should get into their stream at least five minutes early. The pre-game chanting really gets you pumped for the game.:D

    Aren't we off to a bit of a slow start for an Adu thread?

    What time should we start chanting?

    Yeah, allow me.

    Seriously who here thinks he's even going to be in the squad after the horrible form he showed against these guys in the first leg. He sucked, then didn't even make the squad for the next two games and now you think he's going to play CL!? What a waste:mad:
