EL FINAL Benfica vs Chelsea

this is it my dears, we are back in the center stage, time for another final

has been over 20 years since our latest one, but we are ready to face it!

Not only are we back in amsterdam to play a final, as we are staying in a hotel that was built back in 1962, when we won a final for the last time

this has to be a good omen, has to be!

besides, wally will be at the stadium, and im counting on him to be our lucky star tomorrow night



Players called by Jesus:

Goalies: Artur Moraes, Paulo Lopes , Bruno Varela;

Defenders: Luisinho, Maxi Pereira, Garay, Melgarejo, Miguel Vítor, Jardel, André Almeida, Roderick , Luisão;

Midfielders: Aimar, Ola John, Carlos Martins, Salvio, Gaitán, Matic, Urreta, Enzo Perez , André Gomes;

Forwards: Cardozo, Lima, Rodrigo , Kardec.

Will JJ actually start Cardozo? That's my question.

which hotel?

Amsterdam's finest http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/arti...thy-rooms.html

Benfica's fans will also be seated in the home end.


Lex Immers - Pace & power. Holland's #1 box to box player

Feyenoord forum - the place to talk about this phenomenon

Ronald Koeman "Oranje kan Immers goed gebruiken"

Fred Rutten "Feyenoord heeft Immers nodig"

Van Marwijk over Lex Immers: 'Stille kracht van Feyenoord'

John de Wolf “Dat is nou precies de aanjager, het ’etterbakkie’ in het veld dat Feyenoord in dit soort wedstrijden nodig heeft"

i dont recall the name of the hotel, but its a 5 star one, located in the posh area of the city ( so they said), in the same area as Van Basten lives....

its lovely that our fans will stay where the home fans do

ps. the room where i stayed when i was in amsterdam had similar beds, but it was clean and the frontdoor was quite pitoresque , so it wasnt the same hostel

Benfica have also lost sooooo many fecking European finals, they r due to win 1!!!

PS Nice pic of O Barbas. I remember eating at his restaurant as a kid. Costa da Caparinha if I'm not mistaken!

I spent one day and night in Amsterdam. Great city and culture. However, it has to be the most confusing city to move around. This was about 15 years ago, but I don't recall too many street signs. My buddy and I were walking around with a map and completely confused as to where we were.

I make a habit of eating there every year.

So far nice game by Benfica, if only we start taking shots. We're not going to walk in with it, boys.

He's doing his best to imitate a real Portista. It's feigned, no worries. His real team plays in Spain.
