nah, I know Ana was joking. In fact she is just like one of those Dutch greenhouse strawberries...sparkling red in the outside but gloriously green in her core. p

Fábio Coentrão and Sepsi are the only players previously on loan that will be back on Benfica. This means that Freddy Adu, Luís Filipe, Makukula and Zoro have no space on the team this year.

Yesterday was the official kickoff to the pre-season 09/10 and also the presentation of the new shirt. The alternative hasn't been presented yet - will be on Monday - but there's a strong possibility that it is the black one on the bottom of the list.

Is the white shirt a warm up jacket?

Second straight year Adidas get a And I didn't even hate the pink shirt, just didn't love it. The home shirt looks almost identical to what they wore two years ago. So I may skip buying one, but I'll definitely pick up a black, shorts, and maybe a jacket when I visit in August.

My only gripe is that they allow tmn's logo to be a total distraction to the shirt. It's big and looks like a bad photoshop. The Sagres on the back or the meo on the black is how a sponsor should be. I wouldn't be surprised if they allowed that without raising the point that it should be a little more subdued.

FYI: Now that the '09 shirts are discontinued, you can find good bargains on Ebay. I just order a home longsleeve (I know how much Pila them) with Nuno Gomes' name and number for $40 delivered. It will take a few weeks to arrive, but it's worth the wait for an authentic that would cost over $100 brand new.

If you are worried about bad sellers, you are protected if you use paypal.
