Default La Liga | Valencia 4v2 Deportivo | Post Match Comments | 28-09-2008

The first 30 mins was really good imo but as soon as they equalised, we seemed to wobble like a boxer that had just taken a great punch to the head.

Defensively, we were a shambles for big parts of the game and watching Lopo's "efforts" in particular was nothing short of excrutiating.

Lafita got a consolation but it wasn't good enough to get anything from the game.

Before the game it was known that in this Valencia, Mata assists and Villa scores. Couldn't we find any way to stop this??
The defensive game and the attitude was awful. Without De Guzman the midfield is kindergarden, but this time Laure, Filipe, Lopo were awful as well...

Maybe it sounds funny but I'm optimistic before Brann after this game, because I believe we can play whole game against Norwegians as good as we played 30 minutes against VCF.

Comments? Idiots, as mentioned by Philip. We could have got a draw there, but we allowed 4 goals. Our defense was non-existant. On the bright side we finally scored goals (lucky ones but still), our next rival is Numancia at home and we're still 3 points above relegation zone ()

Oh, this was embarrassing. After 3-1 I began eating, and I seriously laughed when the annoying Gol TV co-commentator said:
"They can't defend, they can't counterattack - what are you doing, Lotina?"

Whole team was really bad, I think it's mentally there's something wrong with the team, when we concede a goal.

Starting in the defense, Filipe had a bad 1st half, but wasn't the worst in second. Cause that prize has to go to Lopo, our 'experienced defender', who really was horrible. Our marking was especially non-existing. Laure bad too, while Ze Castro at least did better than Lopo.
Aranzubia had his bad moments, but he also had his good. A little under acceptable, but definitely not our worst on the pitch today, and should under no circumstances be blamed for the 3rd and 4th goal.

JR, Verdú and Tomas all really seemed like they couldn't pass at times, but some of the subs were also weird and did not help them much.

Bravo for Mista didn't make sense when we had to push, as we missed a target man, while I still don't see the point in Alvarez and Guardado switching sides. Lafita brought some fresh air to us, and seemed like one who really gave an effort. Weird goal, like the first one.

Anyway, if Lotina manages to get us to the group stages of the UEFA Cup, I won't really give a damn about today, although our defense was not at all acceptable. If he doesn't, we really seem like a team in trouble - or at least underachievers.

But if Lafita played from the beggining I think that better

He made a deference at some minute he played

Please focus on the Valencia match here and about Deportivo in general in other threads.

Over 90 mins, Aranzubia, Guardado and Pablo Alvarez did what they could and the rest were horrible. Our first 30 mins seemed reasonable, but only because Valencia hadn't started yet and the own goal they scored shocked everyone.

How many decent attacks did we make? Let's don't get overexcited with the first 30 mins. A match lasts 60 mins more. Our defence was just horrible, a Segunda B defence. We can't blame our midfield because with JR and Tomás we won't beat Valencia. The wingers tried but were isolated. Verdu and Mista? No comments.

Valencia were too easy. If not, they could havescored 6, 7 or 8 goals. A 4-2 score might seem reasonable, but our goals are scored once in a lifetime. Pablo's cross was reaching noone and Alexis would have prevented Lafita's run towards the goal, hadn't he completely stopped playing.

Enough said, we never were going to win this anyway with our current form and suspended/injured players.

Our defense is good the problem is in the midfield! When De Guzman isn't playing I feel our midfield inexistant! Antonio Tomas and Juan Rodriguez are the players to blame IMO Lopo and Ze Castro have to do double work with these inexistant midfieldersit's like we're playing with 9 players from the start could be 8 if I include Verdu...

Yeah there was a problem in midfield, but believe me, the defense is the one to blame today. Lopo was supposed to do double work, but he hardly did half work.

Bleak, bleak, bleak. It's not acceptable to be humiliated at Mestalla. Ever.

What the hell is going on with lotina? the subs..the tactics? i think it's time for him to go..the midfield was horrible not able to get the ball to the front..strikers no comment..IMO it wasn't defence fault...if valencia kept going through midfield with ease it's just a matter of time before defence makes a mistake..

Another bad performance Valencia 4, we 2... Hmm, really? 1st goal - autogol by co-operation by Moretti and Renan. 2nd - very happy - Valencia's players stopped ( by waving the flag by refree) and Lafita had to score. But we still have the problems with scoring.
