14 million gloryhunters, maybe. But 14 million fans? Far from it. Maybe 100,000 true fans.
beira mar is not a rival? any team that plays with us in a professional competition is a rival i think....as far as i remember beira mar did their best to make things hard for us in the games we played with them..both for the league and for the cup...do you think it was all "arranged"? who are our rivals btw? maybe we would only have to play a couple games per year in order to win a trophy?
true that next year beira mar wont be a rival of benfica, as far as the superliga is concerned that is. because regarding the cup you never know do you....
another thing i dont understand is why people are so worried about how many fans we have at the stadium. we sure dont need to have coulourful chairs in our stands, in order to create the illusion that it is full
im actually quite impressed about how many people we were able to attract to the stadium this season...afterall, we hadnt won the league in 10 years and we were such a hopeless, handicaped , destined to failure team, in the words of the vast majority of the national sports press and of the all so knowledgeble experts, such as the "special " one....
gloryhunters? any gloryhunter in the portuguese league would have picked porto or maybe sporting to support in the recent years, wouldnt you say so? unless you are talking about a suicide gloryhunter
just say: i cant stand benfica!
it would be the honest thing to do, and would prevent you from saying a bunch of senseless rubbish
