Pablo Hernández uses The Offside as inspiration in 4-1 win over Levante

By: Kyle | January 20th, 2012
   

DV1104569It’s always nice to know that people read your work, and when they do they take it to heart. Clearly, Pablo Hernández has a good understanding of English and reads The Offside, because just days after I called him rubbish and whatnot, he put on a blinder of a performance against Levante in the Copa del Rey. Shame though towards the end of the match he had to be subbed off due to injury.

Pablo played a part in all three of VCF’s first half goals. Assisting on the first and third goals (scored by Jonas and Pablo Piatti, respectively), as well as delivering the pass that the visitor’s defense failed to clear before Soldado struck. To be fair, I didn’t actually see the match, so if Pablo was shit except for these three moments, let me know in the comments section.

Also getting off the mark was Piatti, finally scoring his first goal for the club just before half time. He paid the price for scoring however, after colliding with the keeper. VCF’s official site said this morning that he has only a bruised knee, and no ligament damage. Again, for those who watched, how did Piatti play?

Thankfully, Unai Emery decided to abandon his beloved 4-3-3 for this match, and what do you know….. we win playing 4-2-3-1 \O/

Sadly, Valencia’s next match is against Osasuna on Sunday, in Pamplona. This guarantees a snoozer of a match, not to mention it’s the mid-day game (which for us here on the American east coast is 6:00 am). With Piatti and Pablo being questionable, it looks like a return to Feghouli and Mathieu on the wings. Ugh…

    great through ball for piatti.. and almost scored from a superb first time shot..

    Well the last 20 mins they werent really trying all that much anymore and we were just passing it around a bit. They game was basicly done by then.

    I think everyone on the pitch would have been ok with the match ending 20 minutes early really, there was nothing to play for for either team and we were just trying not to get injuries and cards.

    excellent game overall,everyone played well with the exception of Barragan- can’t cross a ball to save his life.

    The 4-3-3 only worked because Levante were down to 10 men.

    They were only down the second part of the second half when we were already up by 2. I think the 4-3-3 worked reasonably well in the first half as well.

    Well that was our yearly Racing away match…. I find i really wonderous how we always find a way to play our worst game vs Racing. Good thing if they get relegated cause it hasnt quite been the 3 point ground it should have been for us.

    @Bipo Speaking for myself i go to any valencia site but vcfcentral. I really dislike that commentsystem with ratings.
