MT 17: Benfica - Pacos Fereira

I'm a bit late today with it but I have been pretty busy afore and am glad still to make it.

The match will be played in half an hour from here and we should win it to remain in the title race. Yet it's not a 100 percent sure who will start in our goal, Moretto seems to be the winner in what is a tough competition between him and Quim .. here's however how I would play them:

GK: Quim

RB: Nelson
DC: Anderson
DC: Ricardo Rocha
LB: Leo

DM: Petit

RW: Karagounis
MC: Manuel Fernandes
LW: Simão

FC: Miccoli
SC: Nuno Gomes

I thought about introducing Robert, but I don't know how much he's already into the team.

Força Benfica!

Agora não, que joga o Benfica! (Deolinda)

It's just that Koeman has the one or other surprise again ...

Moretto; Alcides, Anderson, Ricardo Rocha e Nélson; Petit e Beto; Geovanni e Simão; Nuno Gomes e Miccoli

Suplentes: Quim, Léo, Mantorras, Karagounis, Manuel Fernandes, Manduca e Robert

Though I'm as well, as you Ana, among the Quim-supporters I wish Moretto, who seems a big Benfiquista, best of luck in his debut. No doubt he's a quality keeper.
I'm pretty surprised by Nelson on the left, I mean his crosses with the right foot are outstanding, we rely on that, dunno why he has to play on the wrong side, when we'd have Leo or Dos Santos there. Well, and I honestly miss Karagounis, he has been spectacular last match.

However, support them all ... Força Benfica!

theres a couple things im finding pathetic tonight

why isnt manuel playing? or even karagounis ....now, with beto making his usually depressing exibitions, makes me wonder why doesnt koeman play karagounis ahead of petit or manuel....petit is doing a great game, both defending and even making a connection defense-attack...wouldnt it be more useful to have the greek (or manuel) helping out in that connection..instead of having beto doing terrible both on defensive and offensive moves? actually what offensive moves does he make :rollani:

other thing...geovanni has no tactical discipline whatsoever, and that is costing us...alcides is playing quite well, but he is all alone on the right flanc...geovanni is playing "on the sand", and ill be very surprised if paços coach doesnt hit us bad in the 2nd half from that flanc....

more..leo is a better player on the left than nelson is....i didnt know there were still any doubts about this


finally, i find it disgusting that moretto (to whom i wish the best and am happy to have in the team) is given 1st team play in his 1st chance.
what is this? a player who has arrived less than a week ago, is given the chance to start a game when our current goalie is in shape?!?
disgusting and pathetic human resources management

simao is back and playing well, and what a goal he almost scored :thmbup:

we have to make a couple serious changes in the 2nd half:

beto out for manuel or karagounis
geovanni out for robert or manduca (move simao to the right if necessary)

lets win the game :fero:

How is Miccoli doing for you guys?
Is he someone Benfica will invest in after this season if he plays like he has done so far?

well he hasn't been playing very in the last few games mainly because Koeman got in his head that Miccoli is a pure striker. When he played free in the attack he played very well.

There's a buying clause in the contract, if we show them 5 million, he's ours.

I know. Only asking if that's something you think Benfica will do, and whether he has performed well.

Thanks to those answering anyway .

I think that kind of decision will only be made at the end of the season. He had a promissing start but has been disappointing lately, though i'm confident he'll be of great importance this year.
