Taça - 5th round - Benfica vs. Leiria 2:1

Now that was another statement. Though the presence of Rui Costa, Benfica didn't look too creative, but all in all Luisão-Anderson seems to work and Benfica scores important goals when needed, in persona: Simão (I think Nuno Gomes didn't touch it) and ...
... the great saviour ...
... the irresistable ...
... the SLB-big-time-James ...
... Mr. zero nerves himselves ...
... Senhor Benfica ...

Absolutely sickening play-acting/diving from Petit to have Harrison sent off.

He should be ashamed... that was disgusting. He jumped into Harrison, began rolling around on the pitch, then once Harrison's sent off, he gets up ready to go again.

Just pathetic.

I thought Mantorras was great. Very active with great pace like always.


Oh lampião, levaste 5 no Dragão, nunca te esquecerás desta grande humilhação!

Why isn't mantorras playing more? the man's 24 or 25 now, seems like he's been around forever since he started catching the eye very young.
Seems to be running fine, perhaps his knee can't long periods of running/cutting/shooting and other sport related activities? Miccoli's fat and overweight, he's also 30 and as much as I like him should go back to Italy, If Mantorras if fit then why not play him?

Well, I also heard the version with the knee which cannot do anymore but for 30 minutes maximum several times, but I somehow can't believe it, he would be an invalid then, how could he still integrate into the squad? Does he train for only 30 minutes? I don't think so. Since Trappatoni simply no coach believed in him anymore. Yet I think with Kikin having left now he will get more playing time, but only in his role as a joker.
