While the narrative for the failed league challenge will be the controversial home loss to Porto; but as noted on OptaJoao on Twitter: "Benfica have won just one of their last six on the road in the league, their worst run since October 2008. Quieted"

Aimar's red card played a role in that, but what happened on the whole? Why did this team just stop scoring goals away from the Luz?
How much blame does JJ get?

Discuss......

I think Jorge Jesus has to be questioned. Some of his substitutions during the season were real head-scratchers. Leaving Capdevila off the Champions League list was another blunder, though it didn't seem to hurt us that much. I've often wondered why Nolito was not played more often, giving his propensity for scoring. Aimar's injury and suspension hurt as well. There's nothing you can do about that.

when you lose the league the way Benfica lost the league, you dont ask questions like: "what went wrong?" You simply fire the coach immediately and give him a very hot slap.

They won their group, but that was in spite of the home match vs. Basel and Luis Martins' emergency start.

To be frank, I'm pretty 50/50 right now on JJ. I don't advocate just change of changes sake, and I don't know if the club does a year end review, but he his out of left field decisions haven't worked well.

i agree

when you have a 8pts lead like we had , you cant fall appart the way we did...

mishandled the pressure?

mishandled the motivation levels?

mishandled the physical condition of the players?


champions fight until the end, dont give up half way when things get tough :palm:

time to make some decisions , need to start preparing the following season and imo its time to say goodbye to jesus

with dignity, of course, he deserves that much :thumbsup:

You lost the title because you were absolutely robbed by PdC and his crooked referees. Maicon was clearly offside on this goal.

The linesman is standing right there looking directly down the imaginary line.

Absolutely ridiculous.
