Operation Revolution Suso and Ayestarán have already decided which players are to be transferred, which could be transferred and which are a necessity to keep. First on the transferable list is “the bomb” Álvaro Negredo who is looking to either return to the Premier League or Serie A. Enzo Pérez, Abdennour, Piatti along with the loaned out Yoel, Salva Ruiz, Orban, Robert Ibañez, Fede Cartabia & De Paul are all high up. “That F?%&# neighbour”… …is a Norwegian song about Swedes, but it could also well be used to describe Villarreal’s meddling with Valencia transfer business.

Will Lim’s learnings lead Valencia back on the path?

It has been hard to find motivation and contents to write about Valencia this season. Somehow you feel you have said it all before; wrong appointments, lack of this and that, unmotivated players and so on and so forth. Now that the doomsday drums have silenced somewhat after securing our spot in La Liga this season, it is however maybe time to take a step back and put some things in perspective. Recently, the BBC documentary on Sir Alex Ferguson was broadcasted on Norwegian TV, and one bit really stuck with me; He knew that for Manchester United to succeed, it …

The nuts and bolts

Preparing for the worst The truth was laid bare at Camp Nou. It was cruel. A massacre. But Barcelona was actually merciful with Gary Neville’s men. Or is ‘men’ really the right word? In a match that will be remembered as the blackest in modern Valencian history, to call the eleven white-shirted cones men that night would be an insult to any narration. “Mercenaries”, “You don’t deserve this shirt” and “Vete ya” were the words of welcome as they returned to Valencia where hundreds of fans have had enough. Many outsiders say Valencia’s fans are particulary demanding. That’s not really …

Team News ahead of Rayo clash It wasn’t pretty and it wasn’t convincing, but Valencia did come away with a 3-1 victory over Monaco in this season’s first official match. Ruben Vezo stepped into the defense and except on one occasion, he really proved he will be no pushover. As Valencia prepare for their league debut, it is without three important players, all suspended as a result of the hard fought victory at Almeria which secured fourth place last season. Gayá, Feghouli and Parejo will all sit this one out, giving room for forced rotations from Nuno, who should have …
