same when they play sporting, and to some extent porto...although, benfica , as u know, is the team who usually drags more fans into away games
these lil teams earn more money in a game with us (or u) than they do all season long , to say the least....so basically, our fans are paying their wages, and they still complain about playing in a bigger stadium lol
of coz that for the local fans and for the players, what's top on their mind is the unique opportunity to play against a big shark, but i was commenting on the whinning that most coaches from these teams always make about playing in a diffrent stadium, even if that benefits them financially...and in the current state of our football, its no small thing....
doesnt even have to be a big shark actually...a couple months ago, when boavista came to oeiras, to play for the cup, i was really sorry i couldnt come to the game, but couldnt help feeling proud to hear that they gave them "xadrezes" quite a beating
