Alvarez it is

Well, the coaching mystery didn’t last all that long in the end.  And I think we should be excited.  This guy was absolutely critical in helping us turn this season around as it seemed headed straight for the toilet after the Xerez debacle.  And as others have pointed out, splashing huge cash on a big name may not have been the most fiscally prudent choice given the state of our (and all of La Liga’s) balance sheet.

Now we can get on to speculating and dreaming about those 3-4 new players that Del Nido was promising.
