The Benfica Socio Commercial via Rui Costa

Thanks to a fellow poster on another site. This is Benfica's commercial to attract socio's to buy the kit. Rui Costa gets pretty deep and it brought tears to my eyes. Enjoy!

157,000 members is very impressive. Especially in a country with a population of only 10 million.

Can i ask what your average attendance is? Cheers

Last season was slightly above 43.000. We have a 65.000 stadium so there's still a lot of work to do. However, in the last 3 seasons (the ones with the new stadium) we've had an average os 23% yearly increase in attendances. Let's hope the trend continues.

I have deleted, the insults, the trolling and the off-topic remarks.

There is no reason to post personal insults, no reason, no matter "how deserving we might think they are".

The root? I have no idea where it lies, nor do I think it is longer relevant but I also think that you have to take some responsabilities for your actions and posts. There was no reason, imo, to post the score of a certain game in this thread

Plesae start treating each other with respect, being rivals and bantering is all fine and by all means, welcome. As FiG said, its very entertaining, but please refrain from trolling and from personal insults.

Thanks

Gràcies Pare, descansi en pau.

Thanks for what you've done.

As an FM I know I shouldn't allow myself to the kind of childish talk that happened in this thread. I regret I've done it although I am sure that unfortunately others here don't.
