Jordi Alba is born 21st March 1989 in L'Hospitalet and came last summer from Cornellà. Before Cornellà, he was at Barcelona but was thrown out because he was too short, similar to David Silva at Barcelona, but is know even taller than Bojan! :strong:

At Barcelona, he was playing on the right side but at Cornellà, Valencia and the Spanish U19-team, he's a left winger.

He recently got his chances at Mestalla and took it. Suddenly becoming the best player of the team with multiple assists and some goals.

Now discuss this guy and his future! :star:

This is what Koeman says about him:
"He's a player that I've seen in various amounts of game and I've liked him, we also have Vicente some minor injury problems and Jordi can replace him because he has talent and I like to give players from the academy the chance"

Well we're awaiting the debut:D

I think we have enough wingers but the guy deserves a chance.


If there's one thing about Koeman that's positive is the fact that he gives youngsters a chance.

Good luck to him, he has got to Vicente and Mata to contend with on the left, hopefully he will get his chance soon to show what he is made off.

Vicente is gone from the game so it will probably not be that big of a problem, we'll see later.

Mestalla players that have debuted so far:
Montoro - Well, nothing special, played out of position, can't judge him. Nothing impressive but is still young.
Lombán - Also out of position some games but have been good in other when he played as a CB. Maybe is something to keep the eye on.

What about Pierrick? Why isn't he getting called up?

Pierrick is in crap form, haven't scored for weeks now.
Michel is the leading scorer and came to Mestalla this summer, he's more of a supporting striker than a pure one.

The team is still young so I would wait to judge them before although it's some good steps forward with Jordi Alba now. We miss Aarón though :D

Hehe, the stuff that makes the african striker uncomplete, the finishing :D
Always strong, fast, good technique, fantastic shooting and so on but then it's the finish that usually becomes a problem :D

I count Benzema as french but that's another thing :D
Arab-African countries have more the cynical European stuff in them while the rest of Africa is more or less the wannabe-South America but still have something that doesn't make them into South America :D
My theory is just getting way and way dumber and dumber :pp

But anyways, this is about Jordi Alba, the left-footed Garrincha! :hopeful:

No... but I hope he get's some minutes if we're leading with 2-0 or 3-0 with 15 minutes to go but asking for that in this period... well :D

But we're going through a period of change now, it came too late and we lived for too long on the team of Benitez.

But let's say he got some time, damn, how young would the team be then? :D
Albiol (85)
Sunny (88)
Banega (88)
Silva (86)
Mata (88)
Alba (89)

No... I don't jump on anything, I'm the creator of the bandwagons ;)

And so far, I've only got rights, I hyped Mata, Sisi, Pablo H and Banega, now name one of them that have flopped? :D

well we shall see what sisi and pablo can do when they are valencia players. Banega looks very talented and has done really well but it's still early days. Mata i like but he's been as bad sometimes as he's been good

Jordi Alba dominates as usual for Mestalla with a perfect assist to Sandaza in the latest game for Mestalla (1-1 after a late equalizer from the opponents) :proud:

U19 call up were;
Aarón, Lillo and Alba
