Will the real Benfica please stand up and show yourself. Is it the club that was picked by several to gain promotion to the Premier League? How about the side who would at least be in the mix with the top three all season? Or, how about the side that gets absolutely hammered by Villarreal, 6-0. I'm not going to guess which is the real one, although I'm sure it's not the last mentioned. Benfica are a perfect example of the challenges all teams in League One have faced this year. Despite what those in the PL think, it's a tough league. Virtually all games are a contest and teams like Benfica who win two and then lose heavily are not rare. There is parody and there are unexpected turns so it's best to move onto the next week each time. Do Benfica stand a chance at promotion? That is hard to say. Very soon I'll take an updated look at the table and see if anyone has a chance to catch the top three. I'll also be predicting where everyone will finish. That is right, I make predictions now when it's far safer. Call me a coward, but I call myself lazy and afraid to face the wrath of teams early in the season when I pick them to finish near the bottom. Speaking again of that 6-0 game, how about Villarreal? El Submarino Amarillo is floating beneath the surface of the league and is striking unprepared opponents. Remember, this was a side picked by their rivals, Valencia, to finish at the bottom of the league. No, not near the bottom, the bottom. However, Valencia are now the team in danger of floating to the bottom of the league, only to be seen a few times a week by a curious opponent. Valencia, what say you?
