Benfica - Belenenses/Gil Vicente/Leixões/whatever postponed!!

Ridiculous. An entire summer to decide this and only two days before the match, they cancel it. Now Gil Vicente is suspended of all competitions, those four teams won't play this fixture, FIFA in on to us, etc. etc. :rollani:

The up side: we have many injured players, and these weeks off will help us. Also, we need the time to get back on track after that awfull pre-season.

The down side: we'll have to stick this game somewhere down the line, and that may clutter our calendar.

Truly sad, I completely agree with you. It makes me wonder what more important things these officials had to do rather than resolve this issue.

Yes, it is pathetic although not exactly surprising taking into account previous affairs like this (Trofense, Alverca, etc, etc, etc). It's a mirror of the kind of "justice" that rules our football, slightly slower than the Italian one.

In any case the danger of seeing our NT and our clubs suspended is very little as Gil Vicente's move to the civil justice will only harm them and not the rest.

Only in Portugal.

They should have been able to sort out this mess before the Liga started. They even travelled to Lisbon before the game was called off!

Don't worry.... it only seems kinky the first time.

"Since there will be no game, and because my team is very young, I'm taking them to the Zoo. There are many identified species there, and the place is fun".

António Fiúza, Gil Vicente president, after taking his team to Lisbon even though he knew the game was postponed.

Another funny moment happened when both Belenenses and Gil Vicente tryed to propose a training match with Benfica, in place of the official one.

Funny quote from Fiuza.
