    Episode 348 - One shot to rule them all

    On this week's podcast.... We catch you up with a brief recap of the  League Cup and Portuguese Cup games that took place before the end of  the year. We then look back at the difficult game in Guimaraes against  Vitoria, where Benfica was able to come away with the 3 points, despite  not being the best team on the field. Nonetheless the first half goal by  Cervi and a solid defensive effort in the second half was enough to  prolong our 16 game winning streal away from Estadio da Luz. In the  second half of the podcast we discuss Julien Weigl's signing and  transfer rumors that included RDT's possible permanent exit to Spain.  Lastly we look ahead to the month of January and Benfica's next Liga Nos  game against Aves.

    Episode 345 - Mountains and Valleys

    On this week's podcast... We look back at the Leipzig, Maritimo, and Covilha games. throughout these 3 games Benfica hit peaks and valleys, the disappointing collapse in Germany after being 2-0 into the 90th minute, the trashing of Maritimo at the new pitch at the Luz, and the poor result against second division Covilha for the League Cup. We look at Lage's choices, and decisions, the affirmation of Vinicius as the #1 choice at forward, and Benfica's lack of competence to dispatch a second division team. In the second half of the podcast we look ahead to Benfica's visit to the Bessa, and UCL matchday 6 where Benfica will hope to get into the Europa League as a consolation prize for the miserable UCL campaign.
