Messi vs Valencia

        The season started with no Champions League football while Serbian James Bond Djukic replaced Ernesto Valverde with the motto “Valencia is a sleeping giant who I intend to wake”. Valencia fans were obviously not sure whether this is the giant they were looking for as the season progressed. The season was full of uncertainty both on the pitch and off the pitch. Djukic was only good at creating a complete mess.  Every match was a horror […]

      And so Atlético de Madrid won the league and how. It was an amazing achievement and VLL will talk all about it in the end of season awards but there was another huge achievement this season down in the south of Spain. Sevilla are no strangers to cup glory but the last few seasons have seen off the field drama make the headlines rather than actions on the pitch. Like many other La Liga club they have […]

    Back from Mestalla and I sit here before my screen in a dark room. What can I write that would convey the great rush of adrenaline I felt today. How can I replicate with words the joy and utter happiness I felt in Mestalla today for 94 minutes. There are no words to convey that pureness of bliss that one feels in their seat in Mestalla.   There are no words to express the love I felt for […]

  Valencia will be hoping their continental luck can strike twice when they face off Thursday against Sevilla in the Europa League semifinal second leg at the Mestalla.   Los Che lost their quarter final first leg to Basel 3-0 in Switzerland before putting five goals past the Swiss in the return leg at the Mestalla.   They’re now facing a 2-0 hole. Can history repeat itself?   The first match against Sevilla was a case of bad luck for […]

  There are few topics as dividing to Valencianistas as the topic of Unai Emery. He was Valencia Cf’s longest serving mister and by far most profitable man at the helm. He was responsible for 4 straight seasons a Valencia record and maintaining 3rd place in la Liga after Barca and Madrid three years in a row; also a Valencia cf record. He accomplished this through the year after year selling of all his best starts and minimal reinforcement. Villa, […]

    Every year there is a giant slayer that makes a brief appearance in the Europa League. Ludogorets of Bulgaria is this year’s darling – the underdog which everyone is putting money down on to cash in with yet another giant slayed. The Bulgarian team’s last victim was Lazio. In the group stage before that PSV Eindhoven and Dinamo Zagreb also suffered to Ludogorets’ advantage. So now the next challenger is none other than the once mighty Valencia Cf. […]

  Tomorrow night Mestalla will be host to Dynamo in the Europa league only a week after the Ukrainian side was forced to play to a nearly empty stadium away from Kiev due to rioting. In that match Valencia managed two away goals and in Mestalla, Los Che will surely hit the final nail in the coffin. Dynamo are a solid squad and could certainly pose a threat. Their defensive tactics proved costly late in the second half where 2 late […]
