i even thank academica for scoring 1st!

becoz we were playing so slow, and after that goal ( luis filipe's blunder lol ) we actually started running and creating chances!


di maria hit the post, nuno almost scored and rui finally does the 1-1 with a free kick

now....we need to replace luis filipe for nelson at once! he is not defending nor attacking and doing a terrible terrible game, forcing luisao to cover half the back pitch!

great to see di maria playing on the wing, where he belongs

ps: seen petit on the bench? damn i miss him on the pitch!

and we win 3-1

terrible 2nd half i must say...lack of organization, the players didnt seem to know which positions were theirs, rui playing on the wing etc etc etc and slow..we were playing slowwwww

then, towards the end of the game, academica's goalie gave us a hand and luisao a heel

and becoz tradition is tradition....adu scores the 3rd right at the end of the game


a lot to be done with this team, camacho needs to get his mind clear and finally make us play as a team

this game i would like to point out david luiz's return...very solid performance! rui's class in several occasions and di maria's play on the wing


now we stand in 2nd with 6 pts ahead of sporting and 1 pt behind porto...should they lose tomorrrow against setubal:hopeful:

I think we're starting to show what kind of depth this team has. We obviously have our weaknesses ( Luis Filipe for one) but all around, we have a strong group. Amzing how things changes after a couple of months, no?

It's a huge asset to have David Luiz back. To me, Luisao are the best CB pairing in the league. Not only that, it allows Katsouranis, to go back to his better position at midfield. Also nice to see Petit back out their!

Agreed, Luis Felipe really pissed me off on the first goal However, good response from our team after the goal BTW, this Freddy Adu is pretty good, huh?

Not the best game from Benfica but the most important is the three points,Academica played very well .Ndoye and Ivanildo made amazing game on the other hand Ricardo played for us.p ,but pedro roma is also a disgrace so.

Benfica best players,david luiz,riu costa and di maria.Again the team showed heart.
