‘Some people believe that football is matter of life and death. I am very disappointed with that attitude, it is much, much more important than that.’

Forget, then, international tournaments – and back to club football. Domestic championships were more exciting than European qualifications…may be. In Spain, Valencia CF clinched the title, thanks to better head-to-head record against Barcelona, who ended with the same points, more wins, and superior goal difference. But Valencia won 2-0 at home and managed a 1-1 draw in Barcelona. Alfredo di Stefano was coaching, but apart from old Valencia fans nobody remembers the champions today. Rather, the dark times of Spanish football were represented – the national team was struggling, the clubs too. Valencia suggested crisis, not improvement.
I am Vesselin Vesselinov, born in Bulgaria and living in Canada. Football is my hobby since childhood – not the most important part of my life, but lifelong addiction nevertheless. Playing, watching, talking and collecting football. Now I am sharing my addiction with you. Hope you enjoy it.
