Re: Summer Transfer Window 2015

While we're talking about bringing up all these youth players, it seems like it will be a bit harder for them. I had seen a article on Benfica raising an additional 50million in bonds, now it's come out that today in a meeting with Jorge Mendes LFV is making it clear that we are on the market for ta...

Re: Benfica Press Headlines

While I fully agree a European manager would be great for the champions league. It is expected that type of manager would also want some CL ready players from the transfer market. With the third party ownership ending, they won't get that. Supposedly the biggest issue LFV had with JJ was his lack of...

Re: Summer Transfer Window 2015

Looks like we sold Funes Mori to Monterrey for 3.5million. He was one of those players that part of his ownership was held by an investment fund. It's good that we keep cleaning these types of things out, especially for players that are not going to find a spot. On the rumor side, Ivan Cavaleiro cou...

Re: Benfica Press Headlines

I think you guys may get your wish. Supposedly all the papers are talking about Marco being the next manager for the reasons stated above but also that us winning with him would be a double slap in the face of Sporting. There is a meeting at the club for the idea of raising 25 to 50 million in new b...

Re: Benfica Press Headlines

Looks like Rui Vitoria is only a candidate at this point, they have a list of managers they are currently in talks with. I'm excited to see who we get. To put things into perspective, in the 2014/2015 season JJ was the 10th highest paid manager in the world (9th if you remove the national teams). ht...

Re: Benfica Press Headlines

Here comes a long rant. In all fairness most of had the feeling he would be leaving yet most (including myself) laughed at the rumors of him going to Sporting. This is truly a surprise, I didn't event want to talk about it last night. First off I say thank you for the titles won and memories. While ...

Re: Benfica Press Headlines

If we get Markovic for Nico I would also want at least 20million cash but I highly doubt that will happen and I think the club has little need for wingers. I'm really liking the youth and options we have at the moment for the team. It would be a loss if Nico is sold but I think we'll still be very s...

Re: Benfica Press Headlines

I haven't liked seeing these kids go but to be honest, the prices we are seeing for loan/bench players is pretty stupid in my book. I would have rather seen the club keep some of these kids but I'm also not surprised. In total we are looking at 45million from the sale of Ivan, Cancelo, Sidnei and Fa...

Re: Benfica Press Headlines

I was hearing that Benfica podcast and they had a guest of 4million per year vs the estimated 5 to 8million we'll now get. Chris on there put down the impact those dollars make but in my book, a few more million from a sponsor there, maybe a bit more eventually from the back sponsor, BTV is giving u...

Re: Benfica Press Headlines

There have been rumors of this for a couple of seasons but it looks like it is official now. Our main sponsor will be Fly Emirates. Contact is for 3 seasons. With extra revenue from BTV airing our games, increased sponsorship dollars, and higher fan turnouts, I feel as if the club is really starting...

Re: Summer Transfer Window 2015

I agree with the idea of just taking the players if they show promise. Just loan them out and flip them for a profit if possible. I'm guessing the issue could be if there are any third parties holding part of their contract which is common in Brazil. Since we're trying to get rid of those third part...

Re: 2015-16 Kits

lol me and you both buddy. My only issue with the kits is that they better just come with the Campeao patch on there, my this season got messed up a bit when the wife had an accident while attaching it. I'll pay an extra 5 or 10 euros, just put the bloody thing on for me.

Re: 2015-16 Kits

I rotate each season, this upcoming season it'll be the white kit and that kit will look nice when I'm out and about! As for the home kit, I love how simple it is. With opposite shorts, both kits will look good. I wouldn't mind a 3rd kit, I'm thinking when we face Braga with their red top with white...
