Round of 16, Here We Come

By: Cesar | February 22nd, 2012
   

europa-league

After the debacle that was Barcelona 5 – Valencia 1 this Sunday, it’s on to greener pastures and the Mestalla, where Stoke City comes to town.

It’s Thursday night and the UEFA Europa League.

I did another preview of the big match over at Forza Futbol, so won’t you be so kind as to check it out and tell me what you think?

Key points heading into this match:

1 – Is Unai Emery on the hot seat? The Barca loss was tough to take. Can we advance against a weakened Stoke side? If we don’t, not only would it be a major shock but a bitter disappointment. Emery’s job could be on the line.

2 – Weakened is the key word. Stoke are sitting many of their key players, including Peter Crouch and Matthew Etherington. The Potters will be playing their fourth match in 10 days and their squad simply isn’t deep enough to contend with us. So how about we do what we need to do, eh?

3 – Ever Banega. I don’t even know what to say. Muppet.

So take a peek at my preview, let’s take Stoke out and advance. How about it?

By the way, I DO think we can win this tournament. So let’s show Europe that the 5-1 isn’t indicative of our talent.

AMUNT!!!

    Ours isn’t a blog and won’t die out, as it doesn’t need anyone running it !

    Facebook is ok but it sucks at many things, for a start you have to sign in to Facebook.

    I belong to a Facebook community, it is ok, but generally the discussions are kept to very few words and are not as interesting on a proper board that has no word restrictions.

    Freedom of choice, go where you wish but I say that our board is better than any Facebook Group and looking at most clubs, the message boards are much bigger than the Facebook sites in numbers of visitors.

    Yes I’ve noticed that as well. The forum that gavin posted the link to is pretty active and http://clubvalenciacf.blogspot.com/ is a news site. I don’t know any other english sites. If you know spanish it’s worth checking out superdeporte.es which is a Valencia based newspaper and the main source for Valencia news. Also if you know serbo-croatian it’s really worth checking out http://www.valencia-balkan.net/
