It was a good goal, I'll admit.... happy? :P
I'm really surprised you've held on to your players tbh.. I'd have thought at least Falcao would have gone by now. I wish we had been able to hold on to our lot..
Ah ha, yes!
I'm surprised too, but so far we're managing to hold onto them! Although Falcao is being forever linked with Atleti.. but i think it's just one of these transfer stories we have to put up with. For some reason I have a stupid feeling that a couple will leave within the last hour of the transfer window! With the players staying though you kinda expect Porto to be just as good if not better with having added a few more players to strengthen the squad, but I can't see us running away with it at all.
Anyway, your first game kicks off in just 15 minutes time, I doubt you’ll have too many problems! Nolito is starting too so it’ll be good to see how he does, also it’s good to see you’ve gone for Artur in goal and not Eduardo (even If I do hate seeing the guy in a Benfica kit!
I’m also excited to see how Academica do this season but most importantly how Pedro Emanuel manages them! Hoping he does well for them and hoping one day he becomes our manager. I love Pedro!
I see Freddy Adu has gone back to America. To be fair to him he was barely given a chance at Benfica but then on his part when he played he was rubbish. At least you didn’t pay that much for him and only a couple million dollars.. so you didn’t lose much on him!
Did you watch Portugal in mid-week? I know it was just a friendly but Coentrao was great! He’ll probably never play as well again whilst he goes and takes a season sitting on the bench! Ah, stupid guy! Also, Hugos goal was a beast of a goal! Better than Portos last week!
Let’s go watch Benfica absolutely smash Gil Vicente now, but it’s nice to have them back in the Liga! And at least they get you guys and Porto out of the way in the first two games. Wahey, the start of the season begins!
