It can drop to 150 and I'd still make a decent bag that I'd be happy with. I bought pretty cheap so I kinda wanna see how far this goes, but if it gets to like $500 I'd take it and run.

Ruben Amorim could've been coaching Benfica right now Lord Eder, if only he had waiting a few weeks.

No tears from me on that one haha I know there was lot of criticism about the cost and his license and all that but I haven't been happier with a coach since JJ (and even more, as much as I liked JJ, Amorim seems to have the midas touch, to the point I don't even question his decisions)

As resourceful as Ruben was as a player, the man was clearly born to coach.

As for Benfica, Luis Filipe Vieira's chickens have finally come home to roost. Had we kept, like 1/4 of the insane amount of outgoing talent over the past half decade, we'd be a perennial presence in the champions league semis.

This year was the straw that broke the camel's back. Giving up Ruben Dias with the schedule underway for a truck load of money and Otamendi in return, seems to have shattered the team.

The good part is that Benfica can put it together rather quickly, considering the fantastic scouting department and direction of Rui Costa as GM-equivalent. Benfica is going to be a European powerhouse once Rui Costa takes over as president. Just hold on a little longer.

Our league would be one of the best in the world if every team could keep 1/4 of their outgoing talent lol It's the nature of the beast. Benfica's youth development has been outstanding lately and even though some flops in the transfer market recently there's no doubt Benfica will be back on top soon enough. Let us enjoy our time haha

I'm bummed there's no fans this season. I did the tour at Alvalade summer 2019 and promised myself I'd go see a game. This would've been a great season for that.

I most definitely prefer padding Benfica's off-years with Sporting winning championships, rather than FC Porto.

No game thread and it's already game day. Shows how little people are interested in this year's team

Team Mediocre looked at this and thought it meant the team was good. :lol:

Team is Mediocre, it’s about to start running on a treadmill unless changes are made.

This team has no future without a superstar.
