    It took longer than expected but Berizzo was finally appointed as a new Sevilla coach for the next 2 seasons. I think he'll do well there.

    Sevilla started to move on the transfer market. In last few days they've bought forward Luis Muriel from Sampdoria for a club-record fee 20M€ with add-ons. They also signed LB Jordan Amavi from Aston Villa for around 9M€ to compete with Escudero and defensive midfielder Guido Pizarro from Mexican team Tigres. He'll replace team captain Vicente Iborra who left to Leicester City for 14M€. They are still negotiating with Jesus Navas but he rejected Sevilla's first offer and Newcastle is also interested in him so there is no guarantee he'll really return home. Nolito could also come from Man City on loan with buy option to replace Vitolo who will most likely leave for Atletico Madrid (and be loaned to Las Palmas until January).

    If they can complete those two signings and keep N'Zonzi then I think they are fine in midfield and attack although there are rumours they might still consider getting back Jovetić. After that they should adress CB position which I think is their biggest weakness and possibly bring a backup/long term replacement for Mariano. They are rumoured to be interested in Sebastian Corchia from Lille.

    Amavi failed his medical. Zubi would buy him anyway.

    And now there are reports Vitolo has renewed his contract till 2022 with release clause 50M€. Not officialy confirmed yet though.

    Vitolo is extending so he will stay. Nolito won't come and Navas is very close to signing. Amavi's deal collapsed due to the failed medical so another left full back will be sought, most likely Jonny Castro of Celta. N'Zonzi also very likely to stay as Juve not interested to pay 40 mill and Sevilla not interested to have nothing less but that amount.

    So now we have: 2 attackers (Muriel, WBY), 2 left wingers (Vitolo, Correa), 2 right wingers (Navas, Sarabia), 2 AM's (Banega, MKD), 2 DM/CM's (N'Zonzi, Pizarro), 3 CB's (Mercado, Pareja, Lenglet - Rami not sure if he'll stay so perhaps we need another CB to cover for Rami). So not bad at all so far.

    And now it looks that ATM will pay Vitolo's clause today. It seems his agency just used Sevilla to get a better contract with Atleti. Sevilla fans are going crazy from what I've read. Navas is represented by the same agency (Bahia Internacional) so it will be interesting if Sevilla will sign him after what happened with Vitolo.

    Rami was officialy sold to Marseille for 6M yesterday while Mariano will most likely go to Galatasaray. Too much changes before CL qualifications in my opinion. Hopefully they'll have some luck with draw or I'm affraid they could stay out of CL.

    Nolito is joining Sevilla on a 3-year deal. 9M transfer fee is probably a bit too much for almost 31 year old player but he could still give them 2-3 good years, especially in Berizzo's system.

    9m for Nolito is a bargain in today's market. Even after his shite season in England, he could easily go for 15m or more with current figures. That and he is also proven in La Liga.

    Saw this great post from Reddit about how Monchi transformed Sevilla into one of Spain's best teams.

    Understandably, I don't think most people knew Sevilla before the EL titles, and so grossly underestimate how much Sevilla has changed in these 17 years with Monchi.

    When he was named sporting director back in 2000, there was zero money. No money for buses to move the team around. No money for goddamn balls (legend has it that the then-president of the club, Roberto Alés, had to pay money off his pocket so that the players had equipment to train with). Hell, net worth was negative due to chronic indebtedness. Not many people remember now, but 5 years earlier Sevilla had been relegated from La Liga to the third division (2ºB) for financial problems (only to be reinstated weeks later thanks in part to fan support).

    How the fuck do you build a decent team in that situation? Two keys: 1. By making the development of your youth squad a priority (Sergio Ramos, José Antonio Reyes, Jesús Navas...) 2. By bringing the Javi Navarros, Antonio Notarios or José Luis Martís of the world. No one talks about these transfers as Monchi's most successful ones, but these were the ones that laid the foundation of what Sevilla is now. They came in very little money and performed admirably to put the club in a perfect position for what came after. You gotta learn how to walk before you learn how to run, and these guys made it possible. The prime example of this is probably our early-2000s coach: Joaquín Caparrós. He left the team with zero titles, yet the consensus is that without his work, what Juande Ramos achieved in the following years would have been impossible.

    Back when Monchi came in, Sevilla was an elevator club. We had two aspirations: in the longterm, become a stable mid-table team. In the short term, beat Betis as frequently as possible. That's it. Monchi knew that well enough; before becoming the sporting director, he had been the (mostly reserve) goalkeeper of the club for most of the 90s. And despite that, he had this amazing vision that he could somehow transform the club into what it is now. Well, maybe not what it is now; I don't think that would have been possible even in his (or any sevillista's) wildest dreams. But he dreamed, and that's what made it possible. That, and his fucking scouting talent.

    Monchi is brilliant.

    Really interested in seeing how he'll build Roma.

    He explained it in an interview before, how his scouting is.

    He is rooted in reality, he said he has a sheet for every position filled with potentials. He doesn't chase players who they cannot afford and he doesn't promise players anything they cannot provide. So they are efficient in their transactions, they don't waste time and the shopping windows are short so he is always well prepared. Other clubs, like Arsenal and Liverpool, waste so much time, over paying for trash and trying to get unachievable targets.
    May permanent peace be brought to the Arab world. My heart goes out to the families of those who have lost loved one(s). I wish and hope those who are creating religious, racial, regional, and tribal divisions among/within the Arab nations would be defeated in their quest for the destruction of the Middle East.
