Episode 392 – Flooded in Azores

On this week’s podcast.. We are running out of words, and logic to understand what is going on with Benfica. We look at the 3 parties to blame after another abysmal 45 minutes of football where we get pushed by minnows. Players, JJ, and front office all have their share of blame in the current situation. Before we turned off the mics we look ahead Tondela and Estrela games. Happy New Year everyone.

Episode 391 – Bye 2020

On the last podcast of 2020… We look back at the Super Cup game against porto, we discuss attitude, grit, commitment, all of which were probably part of Luisao’s talk to the team at the end of the game. We also discussed the game against last place Portimonense, a tale of two halves, in opposite sides of the spectrum. 2020 has been and extremely unusual year, thank you for tuning in to us, we wish that 2021 is much better than 2020, both from a personal perspective, but also that Benfica can rise to glory in 2021. Happy New Year...

Episode 389 – Resiliency

On this week’s podcast…. It’s a triple play of game recaps, first we looked back at the last match of the Europa League group stages, where Benfica had minimal hopes of finishing first in the group, then a game against Vilafranquense for the Portuguese Cup where Benfica exercised their logical domination against a second division team. The last recap was of the Portuguese League Cup against Guimaraes for a spot in the competition’s final four, where Benfica struggled to be efficient in front of goal but were able to...

Episode 386 – Time for Debuts

On this week’s podcast…. After the international break Benfica returned to action in this season’s debut of the Portuguese Cup. None of the internationals made the game roster as JJ opted to include 9 “B” team players and 2 juniors in the game call up sheet. The scoreline is not indicative of Benfica’s domination of the game, but of their lack efficiency in front of goal. We recap the game, discuss JJ’s presser comments and wonder if there’s a message behind it. We then look ahead to...
