Episode 300 - Thank You


On this week's podcast.. we breakdown the Moreirense game, discuss the possibility of a return by JJ, preview Ajax and Tondela.

As we prepared to record our 300th episode, I can’t help but to think how big a part of my life the podcast has become. What started as a hobby on a Saturday afternoon in front of a microphone, hitting the record button,  I would have never imagined the podcast would be able to fill my life with experiences and stories of a lifetime. Through this journey, I have forged many friendships from near and far, many of them going past the common interest that is Benfica, that I know will endure for the rest of my life.

Through this journey, I have been able to experience unique moments, moments that will be forever entrenched in my memory, moments that filled both my heart and my eyes with emotions. I’m still taken back by the many of you that express how the podcast is a part of your weekly routine, and how much you value the content we put out, YOU are also part of those unique moments.


Almost seven years later and 300 episodes, I still find joy, and excitement to press the record button, much of that joy has been driven by your support, and your friendship. I am tremendously grateful for all your support, and for being one of the reasons that have allowed me to enjoy the experiences as a result of the popularity of the podcast; for that, I am eternally grateful.

One last word of appreciation to everyone who has, directly or indirectly, been part of this labor of love that is our podcast, thank you for your time, your attention, your consideration, and your dedication.   

Here’s to another 300!
