#CheNews June 11th

It’s time for another round of CheNews! Well, actually it’s been time for a while but like Adil Rami we need to go off and dance elsewhere sometimes. Today we are back to perform however and we hope you enjoy this edition! Barcelona joins the Andre Gomes fanclub Just as Juventus realized old Italian ladies can’t attract young handsome Portuguese men, Barcelona has emerged as a competitor to the rumored interest from Mouchester United. The interest is documented from both sister cities and as Suso Pitarch met Jorge Mendes in Portugal it increasingly looks as the Portuguese will be the …

Raúl Albiol still waiting for Napoli to agree to negotiate The defender has long had an agreement with Valencia over a 4-year deal but De Laurentiis is yet to agree to him leaving. His agent spoke to the Napoli president last week and is awaiting feedback to make the move happen. Ignacio Camacho too expensive, but Suso has a plan Valencia have found the now fully Malaga owned player too expensive at 20 million euros, but is looking into the possibility of a player exchange deal. According to Plaza, Valencia have a deal with the player to wait until Valencia …

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 …

#Chenews 24.06.2015

The summer is progressing and some people start to go on holiday. That is not true for Valencia or the many journalists that follow them – and of course not for us at Chescandinavia either. Today’s #Chenews gives you the latest updates. The selected goalkeeper is closing in on a move The story of Gerónimo Rulli does not seem to stop producing surprises. From the very beginning the transfer looked difficult, as the player had stated his intention to stay with Real Sociedad where he was on loan last season. Then it emerged that Valencia, not Real Sociedad had come …

#Chenews 12.06.2015

Summer is upon us, and while most of the talk is on transfers, there are also other interesting topics to keep tabs on! We give you the latest all summed up, right here: Who decides? There has been a lot of debate between fans about who really signs players for Valencia. The basis are reports in newspapers as well as the Cadena SER radio station. Some have even gone as far as to say Nuno and Rufete couldn’t stand each other and couldn’t even bring themselves to meet each other. Judging by what we have seen this week, that seems …

Season review 2014/2015 – part 2 – Rufete and the players

We continue our review of the season with Michael (@VCF_Nordic) from Denmark, Daniel Cervera (@Cerverone) from Sweden, Eirik (@EirikSPedersen) and Hans (@mulu83) from Norway and Pål (@paalpot75). “One of the keys to the vast improvement from last year seem to be in the player material. How do you rate Rufete’s contribution to the club?” Eirik: I am not sure about Rufete’s impact by identifying players to buy, but I think he have done an important job when it comes to the final signature on the contract. He is good at convincing players that Valencia is the right club to join. I also think he …

#Chenews May 8th – Spanish Football Civil War

It has been a lively week in Spanish football despite there being a respite between matches after 3 of them in the space of a week. As Valencia prepare for this weekends “all to win”-match against Real Madrid, we take a look at the current news. Small injury scares  When the news came that Valencia’s golden defensive triangle Alves, Otamendi and Mustafi all struggled with injuries after the Eibar match, one started getting nervous. Now though, all three are back in full training and ready to form part of the squad. Nuno’s only doubt for the game against Madrid is …

#Chenews 24.04.15 – New Parejo deal still unresolved

The captain’s contract Dani Parejo has had, in numbers, a really good season at Valencia. In addition to being chosen captain at the beginning of the season, he has been a given starter for Nuno as long as he has been fit. Before this success Valencia had made their intentions to renew the player known. Parejo has been debated among fans for a while and there are both fierce defenders and those who feel he is just not good enough. I for one think he is both as portrayed in this article. Valencia seem to be in the same dilemma …

#Chenord #SillyChe is here! Barcelona – Valencia Valencia return to Camp Nou after having emerged victorious from the last battle in the city of tapas and tourists. This time the battle, for Valencia, is one to ensure the third place and with that direct qualification to Chapions League. Financially as well as far as reputation is concerned, that is key to land the kind of players Peter Lim is said to have in mind. Barcelona on their side are fighting  off a late challenge from Real Madrid for the league title and cannot really afford too many slip ups. The …

Chenews – 10.04.2015

#CheNews #CheNord Teixeira Vitienes and his assistant a.k.a. The blind and the blinder. Valencia were left in shock and rage as the refereeing team once again let the team down against Athletic Bilbao. The referee let himself be led astray by the home crowd following a clash of feet between Mikel San José and Nicolás Otamendi. In a situation where a free-kick could have gone either way and which he could easily have let it pass or given a yellow; instead he chose to cause a stir. The Spanish referees’ eagerness to be the center of attention seem to have …
