Re: Summer Transfer Window 2015

Didn't follow much news today, just logged on to see that Lima is gone to the middle east. Found the transfer fee is for 7 million for him.

This really opens up a spot for Jonathan & Nelson. These next few pre-seasons will be critical for both players.

Re: Summer Transfer Window 2015

Pizzi on the wings worked better then I expected. The more I think back on that game the better I feel about the first team. I know we have some weak spots but in the first half we had almost 60% possession, PSG could barely get out of their half. I found that Pizzi kept tracking back and added pres...

Re: Summer Transfer Window 2015

Had it under the preseason match-line but maybe I should make a separate thread for each match. What a great game it was considering it was the first time our team played under Rui. Even though PSG already played a preseason game and were in North America a couple extra days earlier, we were clearly...

Re: Summer Transfer Window 2015

Both Porto and Sporting have made very expensive bets, failure will not only hurt them this season but it could for a couple of years. Which makes winning this season that much more important. I agree with the comments on Nico. Everything points to him going on the North American tour and us no long...

Re: Summer Transfer Window 2015

For a bit I thought those were BS but now I believe it. I think he'll be an improvement but I agree that for the salary and how he's been doing in the past couple of years, its a big risk by Porto. Funny how we win two back to back titles, if you now look at how much money Porto and Sporting have be...

Re: Summer Transfer Window 2015

I agree that RQ is likely trying to shop around, issue will be that no one wants to pay top dollar for an older player like him. I would love to see Sporting waste even more cash on a player they will get nothing back from. So far Nico has been in training and is part of the team. It would be great ...

Re: BenficaTV

A 3rd channel will make sense as long as there is enough people in Portugal willing to pay for this. At this point I'm not sure how many more people they can sign up domestically. As for BTV outside of Portugal, I don't think they can broadcast most of these other leagues.

Re: BenficaTV

So BenficaTV has signed up both the Italian and French Leagues. While I like hearing that our channel is headed towards being the number sports channel in the country. The point of the channel is to increase club revenue and provide better services to our fans. I hope they are being smart about thes...

Re: Summer Transfer Window 2015

According to the papers, there was a flight issue and Nico will only arrive at the club tomorrow for preseason. Looking at the pictures today, it was great to see Silvio at the club. I still wasn't sure if he was a loan or owned by SLB but if he's fit, I'm glad with him as an RB. I think he would be...

Re: Summer Transfer Window 2015

When it comes to B. Silva, at the moment 15million looks like a bad a deal. However if we take everything into perspective, at the time he was a very exciting prospect but 15million for a b-team kid that had yet proved himself seemed like a good deal at the time. I wish we had just developed him but...

Re: Summer Transfer Window 2015

I'll add that Bernardo himself while JJ was still at the club, clearly pointed the figure at JJ as to why he left and why other youth were pushing for a move out. Cancelo happened around the same time JJ left, regardless that could be an item that the club thought they had Maxi and Cancelo wanted to...

Re: Summer Transfer Window 2015

I still strongly believe that positions should be earned, not something players are entitled to. So I hope guys like Ivan, Nelson, and so many others can make a strong case for a spot on the team. With Salvio injured Ivan should be able to take a spot. As for Nelson, we'll need to sell Lima or Jonas...

Re: Summer Transfer Window 2015

And the tradition of signing a boat load of player which most will never play on the main team continues. Benfica confirmed the signing of several players today: Ederson (Rio Ave) - 21 year old goalkeeper that had 50 caps for Rio Ave the past few seasons (I'm guessing him or Varela from the B-team w...

Re: Summer Transfer Window 2015

Now that Uruguay has been knocked out, I would hope by this week or next week we would have an answer on Maxi. Love the youtube scouting, that's all us fans have to work off of for some of these players. I can see your point on the speed, this John Murillo can really move but the part I liked seeing...

Re: Summer Transfer Window 2015

I think by next week we could know if Maxi is staying or going to Porto. Supposedly this morning the papers were saying we offered a 3 year contract at 1.5million putting Maxi as the top 3 most paid players at the club. Now rumors are Porto are offering 2million for 4 years. Maxi is amazing but up p...
