No way Simão and Rui Costa fit in. Chalana and maybe Simões should probably make it, just from the top of my head.

My beef with Rui Costa is that he was young when he left and closed to washed up when he came up, no doubt a true Benfiquista but there are others that had more success with our shirt.

Simão carried us and so did JVP, I'd have to put Joao Viera Pinto in there even though our teams were horrible at the time..

Yeah, Simão carried us, but that, and him, became more evident because he was clearly the best and also the first in the clubs' rebuild.

I would still rate Chalanix and Simões above him.

I would rate Chalana or Simões above Simão. And Simão above Rui Costa and JVP.

I think the confusion came from Simões and Simão. :thumbsup:
No confusion bud, just wanted to understand who you were rating higher than who, know very well know Simao and Simoes are.

Good team, however i'd try to squeeze JVP over Simao in there, JVP over Rui Costa hands down, this man was Benfica for mid to late 90's, Rui was doing his thing in Italy, heck, even Poborsky did more for us than Rui

Here's mine (recent)

Preud ' Homme

Miguel- Ricardo Gomes- Luisao- Coentrao

Poborsky- Emerson- Aimar - Simao

JVP- Miccoli


All time

Preud ' Homme

Miguel-Luisao-Coelho-Coentrao

Simoes-Coluna--JVP--Chalana

Eusebio-Jose Aguas

Bench: Costa Pereira, Mozer, Ricardo Gomes, Simao, Cardozo

JVP, simply the best Portuguese player from mid 90's to around 2000, Rui was also good and can't argue if some choose Rui but Figo overcame them after that.
Miguel and Coentrao, both excellent but their stay wasn't long enough, still put them there for the short list.

Aimar: Hard to choose a #10, will take Pablito over Rui since Rui was washed up, will however take a pre-Fiorentina Rui over the current Aimar.

Cardozo: most goals by a non Portuguese and counting, not my favorite style of player but the net does shake when he plays.
