    Second Edition #2
    Villarreal C.F. Overview

    There are rumours of one of the all time legends joining to replace the long gone Riquelme, however this cannot be confirmed by the club as yet. See 'Rumour of the week' for details.

    Villarreal C.F. Financial Status
    Villarreal C.F. currently stand in a solid status financially. With 17m in the bank, Villarreal boss Sam Bartolo is looking to add to what he's got. Rumours are circulating the club that an unknown Barcelona playmaker is to join the club, however this does not, by any means, that it's a done deal (See 'Rumour of the week' for more).
    So far in the season, Villarreal are averaging an income of 904k per home game. This is not a bad statistic considering the size of the 'El Madrigal' stadium (23,000). The club can also confirm that about 8/9 of that income is going towards wages per turn, so Villarreal are currently losing close to 700k every week, which is equivalent to 2 games. That is not a nice way to go by things, and the manager can't exactly make the squad smaller than it is. It is no secret that Sam Bartolo is looking to increase the size of the stadium sooner rather than later.
    Villarreal C.F. have seen no less than 310m move around the club! The club has spent 154m so far, and has recieved 158m in all.
    Finally, the highest paid players are on-loan goalkeeper Oliver Kahn, and most recent big-name signing Fabian Ernst, who are together earning over 11% of the club's total 800k wage bill, which divides to 45k a turn each.

    MATCH ONE
    Wednesday, 19th September, 2007
    Villarreal C.F. (Sam Bartolo) vs Almeria (Unmanaged)
    Welcome to our first Match Report of the week, for the match between Villarreal C.F. and Almeria. The second match of the Spanish Top Division for each side, both coming from wins, met at the Villarreal stadium, El Madrigal, for this interesting encounter.
    Villarreal are yet to concede a goal in the league, and kept that record with this extremely convincing 5-0 victory over an unmanaged Almeria. Sam Bartolo would be delighted with the team, as they kept pushing and pushing infront of 22,605 supporters, 99% of them being their own crowd.
    Villarreal started the brighter and finished the brighter of the two sides, and it took less than a minute for 'The Yellow Submarine' to take the lead. Andriy Shevchenko failed to score on his debut on Saturday, however he wasted no time in getting on the scoresheet this time round! Following a long ball through the middle, he slotted the ball home with his right foot to give Villarreal the lead.
    Exactly half an hour later, referee Danny De Zeeuw didn't hesitate to send off Almeria right winger Juan Ortiz, after a disgraceful challenge, and rightly so. Villarreal reacted positively to the opposition sending off, and two minutes later they doubled their lead through Pavel Pardo, who seized on an Almeria defensive error, rounded the keeper beautifully and slotted home with ease! The fans where all over Pardo, who scored his first goal for the club, and it took 5 minutes till the referee and stewards managed to sit all the supporters back down again!
    On the 36th minute of the first half, Shevchenko doubled his goal tally after a miss-hit shot squirmed under Westerveld's body. The keeper may feel he should have stopped that one, and Shevchenko was embarrassed to claim the goal which virtually finished off the game and confirmed the 3 points for Villarreal. Yet it took Villarreal just 4 minutes more to get the fourth goal of the game, and with 40 minutes gone Filippo Inzaghi made the crowd go wild as he latched onto a rebound following a superb long range shot. A true poachers goal that one, and it increased his goalscoring record to 2 goals in 2 games for the Villarreal faithful.
    HALF TIME
    Villarreal 4-0 Almeria
    In a much less attractive second half, Villarreal calmed down the tempo a little and literally made fun of Almeria by dominating possesion - it was like a 10 v 1 pig in the middle game which would occur in training!
    13 minutes after the break, Shevchenko scored a tap in when a great shot from the wing crashed onto the crossbar, and he followed up with the rebound. This goal finished the scoring for the game, with Shevchenko taking the ball home after the match for having been the hattrick hero, in what was a man of the match performance by the ageing Ukrainian.
    There were some other chances after the fifth goal, with Van Bronckhorst and Gudjohnsen both coming close, but none managed to convert their chances.
    That finished an overall entertaining match for the home crowd, and ensured that Villarreal C.F. moved up to first place in the La Liga tables.
    FULL TIME
    Villarreal 5-0 Almeria
    The games saw 1 red card, while two players also went into Danny De Zeeuw's notebook... all players being Almeria players. With 53% possession, 18 shots on goal, 10 of which were on target, and 3 corners, Villarreal dominated the match, however Almeria will feel a bit hard done by, failing to take advantage of 9 corners and 7 shots at goal.
    Villarreal played with a 4-2-2-2 formation, the one which saw them defeat Athletic Bilbao 4 days before with their 2-0 victory. It is widely expected that Villarreal opt to keep this formation for Saturday's encounter with Levante.
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Players Loaned Out
    Due to the size of the squad, especially with all the young talent, Villarreal boss Sam Bartolo (Sir Bobo) has let plenty of players leave the squad on loan in hope of them gaining some experience, and to avoid them from being unhappy at the club, along with the fact that he's trying to reduce the wage bill.
    An incredible number of 29 players have left the club on loan to date, however Sam has not ruled out the fact that they may be recalled.
    ''We've let 29 players leave the club on loan. Some were not needed for this season, some were young stars who need experience, and the rest were chopped down to reduce the wage bill. I do not want more than 20 available first team players at any point, and we currently have 16. We will hopefully be adding a couple of face, and if not there is always the chance to recall some loanies.''
    Timmer, Foster, Vallejo Lopez, Konchesky, Sottil, Godin, Upson, Caceres, Sigali, Mancienne, Valentijn, Peter, Vaughan, Parker, Titov, Pelletieri, Smith, Dunn, Bullard, Muamba, Galloppa, Schneiderlin, Arzo, Park, Rossi, Vidangossy, Konstantinou, Ashton and Hladkyi have all left the club on loan on season-long deals, however with the option to be re-called.
    Disappointment of the week




    New 12.5m Villarreal C.F. signing Michalis Konstantinou dropped 2 in the ratings from 90 > 88 in the past week, and was immediately loaned out as he was not needed any more. However, he scored on his debut for West Ham, his new club, and managed a rating of 9 in that game. We wish Michalis all the luck in the world in his season in England.
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    A look at the Villarreal Youth Squad
    The Villarreal C.F. Youth Squad is brimming with talent. There are currently 13 players in the youth squad, Joe Anyon being the best. Joe was signed for 1.5m earlier in the season from Port Vale in England, and is tipped as the future England number 1.
    Besagno, Azpilicueta, Bolland, Dimoutsos, Paglialunga, Pjanic, Joao Victor, Kayke, Jefferson, Fetsch, Wittesaele and Cases fill up the remainding 12 places, and all the youth players are available for loan.

    MATCH TWO
    Saturday, 22nd September, 2007
    Villarreal C.F. (Sam Bartolo) vs Levante (Melvin Skinner)
    Match two of the week since the last edition of the magazine arrived, with Villarreal having earlier managed back to back victories against Atletico Bilbao and Almeria. Villarreal conceded 0 goals till this match, having scored 7 goals in the process. Villarreal's second consecutive home match saw 22,605 supporters, which is exactly the same amount of supporters at the stadium last time round.
    Villarreal took the lead once again at the El Madrigal, when in the 12th minute, hugely on-form striker Andriy Shevchenko increased his goal tally to 4 goals in 3 games for Villarreal, by slotting home after some neat footwork.
    The goal put Villarreal to sleep though, and Kahn made 3 fantastic saves in quick succession to deny Levante. However the on-loan keeper couldn't last forever, and on the 29th minute of the match Levante equalised, beating Kahn for the first time this season, through Georgian striker Shota Arveladze. Rumour has it that Arveladze will be on his way out of the club very soon with incredibally high offers being received by his club, however he didn't let any media talk unsettle him with this spectacular volley.
    It couldn't have been worse for Villarreal, who just couldn't get back into the game, and just before the half time whistle Nino rose and headed in an inswinging corner to put the visitors ahead.
    HALF TIME
    Villarreal 1-2 Levante
    Sam Bartolo wasn't the happiest of people, and his half time talk didn't do much as Villarreal spent the first 15 minutes of the second half the same way they finished the first - very averagely to say the least.
    However there is a reason why he's know as the master tactician, and 3 substitutions which saw Bravo on for Man of the Match Shevchenko in the 60th minute, Magnin on for the lively Jankulovski (75th minute), and Fernandez on for Gio Van Bronckhorst (also 75th minute) gave Villarreal the confidence to go forward, and it was one of the substitutions who got the equaliser for Villarreal!
    A minute after Savio of Levante went into the referee's notebook, a spectacular volley in the 78th minute from Omar Bravo flew into the top corner of the net! The final action of the game came in the 83rd minute, when Eidur Gudjohnsen was booked for a 50/50 challenge - very hard done by the attacking midfielder.
    FULL TIME
    Villarreal 2-2 Levante

    Rumour of the Week


    Rumour has it that Barcelona star Deco may be on his way to Villarreal. The press report that $40m + Matias Fernandes should be enough to tempt the Portuguese playmaker, however Sam Bartolo has been told that there is plenty of interest elsewhere.
    Where will he end up? Will he stay or will he go?
    Stay in touch with Villarreal latest next week where we can get you more about this speculation on the #3 Magazine.





    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Blast From the Past!
    Juan Roman Riquelme
    Once a legend always a legend at Villarreal!
    2004-2007

    Juan Roman Riquelme, born 24 June 1978, is an Argentinian attacking midfielder, who currently plys his trade in Spain with Spanish giants Barcelona.
    Riquelme enjoyed his first professional spell with Argentinian team Boca Juniors, and then he moved to Barcelona during difficult times in the Spanish top division. Riquelme had the potential, but family problems along with his coach ignoring this potential led to him not being able to show his capabilities.
    Riquelme then moved on loan to Villarreal in 2004, and he slowly began to show the class he showed in his younger years at Boca Juniors. Riquelme soon became a legend at Villarreal, and is praised as the best player to ever wear a Villarreal C.F. shirt. In 2007 he was loaned out to Boca Juniors for 5 months, and then he returned to Villarreal.
    However this time it didn't work for him. Injuries prevented him from playing, and on the 17th September, 2007, Villarreal received an offer of 20m + Eidur Gudjohnsen + Jose Edmilson, which Villarreal accepted for the 29 year old.
    On the 18th September, 2007, Juan Roman Riquelme signed for Barcelona, which is his second spell with the Spanish giants. This mightn't have gone well the first time round for Riquelme, however his gain in experience has immediately helped, and he's played 3 games for Barcelona within just 2 weeks of signing. Despite not scoring, the new Barca playmaker has impressed behind the two strikers of Barcelona FC, mainly in the teams' 3-0 triumph at the home of Valencia.
    There are good times ahead of Riquelme's career, and we here at 'La única manera está arriba' would like to wish Riquelme the best of life in both his football career and family life, and we give our thanks to a player who played a major part in the development of Villarreal C.F.
    Thank you Riquelme!

    Strikers not yet on SM to keep an eye on
    Rubin Okotie
    20 yrs
    Austria
    Striker
    FK Austria Wien (Austrian Bundesliga)
    Scored twice in the tournament, reminds me a lot of Altidore. Could be a revelation at Wien this season.
    Abdallah Salah
    20 yrs
    Jordan
    Striker
    Al Wahdat (Jordan 1)
    Probably never will make it on SM, but he was awesome, the only real force for Jordan.
    Ousman Jallow
    18 yrs
    Gambia
    Striker
    Raja Casablanca (Morocco)
    Was the go-to-guy for Gambia, I think he may get out of Africa. On the right track at Raja, is a very talented striker.
    Zequinha
    20 yrs
    Portugal
    Striker
    Tourizense (BWIN Liga)
    Forward got pressed into the starters role after injuries. Played good enough to be mentioned here. When he gets added to the database, is worth buying if he is sub 80.
    Gabriel Torres
    18 yrs
    Panama
    Striker
    Chepo FC (Panama 1)
    Left alone at the front, and still managed to create opportunities for Panama. Bright spot on an awful team.
    *** Il Kim
    19 yrs
    DPR Korea (North Korea)
    Striker
    April 25 (DPR 1)
    Produced some brilliance against Panama, but Mejia kept turning him back. Finally got his goal against another great keeper, Radek Petr.
    Brown Ideye
    17 yrs
    Nigeria
    Striker
    Ocean Boys (Nigeria)
    Wow. He will be something. With Bala, was dangerous all tournament. Only 17, probably attracted some Norwegian club () and will be transferred to Europe soon. Worth buying.
