de Tomas seems so much money for our league but i've never seen him play...have you?

i'm amazed at the amount of money we are getting from felix, and in the end of the day jimenez not bad either, although i still think we could have used him a lot more, and given him more opportunities to play.

Jovic ..clear miss lol going for castillo and ferreyra and loaning him as we did, was a big mistake . Oh well, live and learn

Let's hope the $ we are getting from these transfers ( for now) is used wisely

Raul de Tomas is a natural striker he will have the fans on his side quickly in his career, Benfica would be wise to put some of the funds received towards its debt while shoring up the club with a few more signings. Jovic had a problem following the rules the club had enough of his nonsense but in a savy business move, were paid €7M from Eintracht for his rights and made another 20% on the sale to Real Madrid so close to €20M for a player that never did much with our club.

didnt know about that 20%, so doesnt look so bad on a player that came cheap....discipline issues was it? well, that is something that for a while now Benfica is not putting up with , thankfully, had too much of that in the past with the outcome we know ....

strikers need goals, if he scores, the fans will be behind him, that's how it works...

i agree on saving up some of that money, not going silly on spending it randomly with players transfers / wages , i hope as a club we are past those days, though we do need to take on the CL stronger than we did last year and before, buy / sell wisely

Didn't think you would need a goalie (Odisseas, Svilar) but Mattia Perin from Juve is apparently signing long term contract.
Im very surprised since odisseas is great and svilar imo good enough back up, but i think they are trying to sell svilar...we sold a young player to juve now, joao ferreira, so dunno if it is part of the perin deal...either way read perin is atm injured and not expected to be fit before september, and season starts 1st week august with supercup 😄
