Sporting Lisbon vs. BENFICA



Possible Teams:

Artur
Maxi-Jardel-Garay-Melga
Matic
Salvio-Andre_Gomes-Olha_John
Lima-Cardozo


Queen Vitoria is mildly discontented she won't get released for flight time in Da Luz as this match will be played away from home. Truth to tell, although the Queen won't admit as such, she is harboring a plot, a plot which involves her taking flight to the nearby zoo, something she has attempted in the past. Although a lucky charm for the club Benfica, they may grow weary if such mischief is to continue



Thank you for opening the thread Carrie, Nazir is dead and the lion will soon follow.



It's on

Big games are easy than the other games, unfortunately. Every times we have the control the games, under the control the games, during the games we had the some possibilities, some big chances, some big okazyons, something like that but what can I do, sometimes? And….it’s the football, that’s the football, something happened. Everything is something happened. - Fatih Terim

Thanks for stopping by, Andy.

To complete this preview I actually did research a little about Queen Victoria, but it was hardly exhaustive work; I only had to fish around in a few places to find out about the eagle's daring sojourn to the local zoo, for instance.

Stop trolling.

Anyway, the Lazio eagle would kick its ass.

Without it gravity is just gravy.

Hmm, I think so. As a lucky charm. And because it's cool.

Isnt this supposed to be like a local derby or something? Where are all Benfica fans? or maybe it's a timezone thing and they haven't yet woken up in America.

I'm helping to attract a new range of fans to the Benfica forum. How often do Andy Christ, Ronaldwho?, and Andor post in this forum?

see? i told it was a great opening jeff

its just so awkward, having a derby played on a monday......and even more awkward when our opponent is already 15 pts behind

still, fragile as they have been this season, our fellow pussycats (aka sporting) will put on their best performance tomorrow, i have no doubt

Is the derby scheduled for Monday because Sporting had their match delayed against Videoton?

On the Iberian Peninsula isn't it some kind of tradition to do things late at night? Whether it's hosting a dinner party or watching a football match, I noticed some matches in Spain kicked off around 10pm. Is it like that in Portugal too, what do you think of that lifestyle.

Most of the people that post in the forum live in the US and Canada, it's 10:53 here now, we've just finished watching the Manchester Derby

The name is Vitoria, and we had this tradition before Lazio, it was brought to the club by Spaniard Juan Barnabe who has since had issued with our security guards and let go from the club.

Here's Vitoria in the 2009 Eusebio Cup:



I'm not sure if this is Barbabe's original Eagle who was taken to Portugal from Canada, there's not just one Eagle and if I'm not mistaken also a Falcon that is displayed



As for the Derby, well, we run Lisbon, the green pussycats are indeed our noisy neighbors
