    Where the water is warm, the drinks are cold... and I don't know the names of the players.

    Valverde happy with display at Mestalla

    Valverde's comments after 1-1 draw at Mestalla:



    Messi goal not given

    "We can all agree that in these type of clear situations, when itís clear the ball has gone over the line, that [help is needed for referees]. Weíre not talking about re-refereeing the games, but weíre still getting moments where the ball goes over line and itís not spotted and we can all see the evidence. But it also went in our favour against Malaga, when the ball went out of play before a goal that we scoredÖ No one knows what would have happened if we'd got the goal. It would have put us ahead, though, and that's a big advantage."


    Comments on the match

    "Both teams were true to their style. They wanted to counter-attack quickly, in the first half we dominated, we didnít give much away.

    It was a good game, with a controversial moment which luckily didnít knock our focus. In the second half, they started a little better and got the goal, but after that we tried to take steps forward.

    We struggled a little with the space behind us but got the equaliser and went after the winner. We would have liked to get the three points but we are happy with how we played."

    "It doesnít matter to us what people say [about how we play]. We now that we want to dominate a game and boss the possession. There are times when youíre more fortunate than others. Our idea is to always be in control."
