VIT. SETUBAL vs BENFICA PREVIEW, SQUAD CHANGES AND THE SELECAO DEBACLE

Friday 12/09 will mark the opening of the Liga’s fourth game, with Vitoria de Setubal receiving Benfica at the Bonfim at 8.30pm GMT, under the control of Joao Capela. Setubal, led by Domingos, is one of those teams capable of creating a surprise and I sure hope that JJ will go for a more logical side than he has lately.

This game gave us a good preview of what we will look like this...

The financial situation of the Club

It is with a surreal feeling that I make my first contribution to this blog with such a post. I would have loved to write a fluffy text about the greatness of our squad, our manager and our president as well as our high hopes for 2014-2015, but sadly I have had to research information explaining what is currently happening to the club.
