Jeff.....game starts in less than 2h...where is the thread? :eek: :D


ok, today at 4pm GMT we host Boavista , who is currentely sitting 14th place, but lets have no illusions, they will give their best to grab pts, as they have already troubled good teams this season and Petit is very competitive

its a home game, we are stronger home , im expecting the usual support from the fans ( are expected around 50.000 at the stadium) its a beautiful sunny and warm day, looks like bloody summer lol

its of course game to win, no other option is acceptable

Rui Vitória has called the following players:

Goalies: Júlio César , Ederson;

Defenders: Lisandro, Luisão, Jardel, André Almeida, Sílvio , Eliseu;

Midfield: Talisca, Samaris, Gaitán, Pizzi, Carcela, Taarabt, Renato Sanches , Nuno Santos;

Forwards:: Jonas, Mitroglou, Gonçalo Guedes , Raúl Jiménez.

fejsa is still injured, same with semedo, lindelof and salvio, cristante was not a choice again

FORÇA BENFICA!!!! :wee: :wee: :wee:

the play was very mediocre yes.....we have the same old issues in the midfield, samaris is by himself defending, and thne nobody to make the transition to the attack

luisão, i have the biggest respect for the guy, but had boavista pushed a bit more....silvio played very well today

upfront, jonas had one of his worst games i can recall, even if he did hit the iron , but found him very slow, mitro was totally lost, jimenez i didnt see as i missed the 1st half

guedes with another great performance, carcela looks interesting , he is fast and has skill, just needs to play more with the team, but he has potential


gaitan is gaitan, he is always class, even if it was one of his worst games


and please...can we send talisca to sporting? he misses jj clearly, i cant watch that guy anymore :palm:

rui has to look for alternatives for that midfield ...pizzi? so far hasnt convicned me, but still better than talisca imo, cristante? taarabt? i dont know, something needs to be done

truth be said boavista didnt once make a dangerous attack, and we hit the iron twice, and missed a few other chances, but benfica cant display such poor quality footy

Taarabt has ability but is totally unprofessional so he's someone you can't rely on at all, he's basically wasted all his potential.

67-year-old QPR manager Harry Redknapp, stated after his team's home defeat against Liverpool,[40] "Taarabt is not injured. He's not fit. He's not fit to play football unfortunately. He played in a reserve game the other day and I could have run about more than he did. I can't pick him."

kind of sounds like what they use to say about Quaresma

i dont undertsand why we bought him

all i hear is he was like that already....

since he got here, he has been caught more thna once partying the night before a match ( carcela was with him once i think, but seems like he wised up, becoz he has been playing and looking good), has too much weight and wasnt coping with the diet imposed by the club, really dont get it

We were desperate and hoped that he would see this as his last chance, kind of like what Porto did with Quaresma, Im just guessing. Its the only thing that makes sense to me. Kind of looking like a huge waste of money. Money we cant afford to throw around
