    导出博客文章Guillem Balague has broken down the fallout from Spain after Gary Nevilles
    Valencia suffered a 7-0 defeat to Barcelona in the first leg of their Copa del
    Rey semi-final. A defiant Neville insists he will not resign from his position
    at the club, despite suffering the heaviest defeat of his managerial career on
    Wednesday.Balague believes Nevilles honeymoon period is now over - but admits
    the managers job at the Mestalla was a poisoned chalice. Speaking to Sky Sports
    News HQ, Balague said: Gary Neville was right when in the defeat against
    Sporting he said he did not hear the fans complain about him. That was true,
    that was not the case.The players were called mercenaries after their defeat
    against Sporting. There was no blame attached to Gary Neville at that point.But
    thats over, that honeymoon is completely over. Now the criticism has reached the
    coaching staff and they are having a go at Gary Neville. Gary Neville says he
    will not resign despite suffering what he called an unacceptable 7-0 defeat to
    Barcelona There were 300 fans waiting for Valencia to arrive from Barcelona at
    the airport and as the players were picked up at the steps of the planes and
    taken away to the training ground, there were 300 fans there as well.Former
    Valencia goalkeeper Santiago Canizares, who played over 400 times for the club,
    winning two league titles and two cups, labelled the Barca defeat as one of the
    worst results in the clubs history while former midfielder David Albeda voiced
    his concerns of relegation. Here is a look at Valencia before Neville and under
    Neville As well as the fans, Albeda and Canizares - two legends of Valencia -
    have also had a go in the last 24 hours, Balague added.Albeda is saying we
    [Valencia] have to start thinking about not getting relegated - theyre only five
    points away from the bottom three at the moment - and Canizares is saying Gary
    Neville has to go and he has to apologise. [Canizares] said the best thing to
    happen to Valencia would be if he goes. That is the kind of tension we are
    talking about. Valencia club legend Santiago Canizares has criticised Neville
    Despite criticism from former players, Balague does not expect the club to make
    any snap decisions.The message from the club was very clear last night: calm,
    stay calm; we want everyone to stay calm, Balague added.The problem is [owner]
    Peter Lim is in Singapore, so not even at the club do they know what his
    reaction is going to be. I have got the impression that both Gary and Phil feel
    that there is going to be no changes and that they will be there against Betis
    and be there until the end of the season.So the message is calm. The next home
    game will be Barcelona in the cup - not many people will be there after this 7-0
    of course - but the following game that will be at home I think there will be a
    reaction of the fans against the coaching staff. Valencia manager Gary Neville
    looks on during his sides 7-0 defeat to Barcelona in the Copa del Rey Balague
    accepts Neville will be held accountable for his tactical decisions but feels
    the players too need to change their attitude if Valencia are going to reverse
    their current slump.The criticisms they are getting after this game against
    Barcelona is why [Sofiane] Feghouli, who is a right winger, played in
    centre-midfield and why [Guilherme] Siquiera, who has just arrived, was playing
    as a left winger. Sofiane Feghouli was played out of position against Barcelona,
    says Balague But a series of things contributed to the [Barcelona] result. There
    was also a lack of attitude from the players. Nobody can answer or explain that
    or why that is the case.Players at the Camp Nou werent aggressive enough. The
    ones that were trying to recover the ball were the Barcelona players - Sergio
    Busquets, [Lionel] Messi and Neymar - and that was disappointing.Nevilles move
    to the Mestalla was underpinned by his Salford City ties with Valencia owner Lim
    and Balague believes the former Manchester United captain accepted a poisoned
    chalice. Valencia owner Peter Lim is currently in Singapore [Criticism] hasnt
    reached Peter Lim because hes put almost 200m euros into the club since hes
    arrived, Balague added.The decision to put Gary Neville in charge is a little
    bit of a [poisoned] chalice and the kind of decision that can go against
    you.Gary Neville said yes because it was almost a favour to Peter Lim but the
    questions that have been asked in Spain are: Was he prepared enough? Is there
    enough respect for the process that you need to take to be a top manager, that
    takes you to Valencia? Thats the kind of thing that people are discussing.Watch

    female sprinters, exuberant after winning a relay race at the world
    championships in Moscow, have set off a flurry of speculation that they were
    protesting Russias new controversial law against gays. But two of the athletes,
    who appeared to brush lips while kissing each other on the cheek, insisted
    Tuesday that was not the case. Kseniya Ryzhova, one of the 4 x 400-meter relay
    winners, said: "The storm of emotions going through us was
    incredible.dddddddddddd And if we, accidentally, while congratulating each
    other, touched lips, excuse me. We think the whole fuss is more of a sick
    fantasy not grounded in anything." Russian women often kiss one another on the
    cheek when celebrating a happy occasion or even just in greeting. ' ' '
