Villarreal news around the 'net

Angel Lopez

The team returned to training yesterday ahead of the Twente match.  The club's TV promo spot came out yesterday, as already posted here.  Tickets are again very reasonably priced and it should be a great atmosphere in El Madrigal:

Up to 1500 Dutch fans may make the trip; security is being doubled for the match because of their numbers, much beer is expected to be consumed, but no problems are expected.

Nilmar appeared before the press today.  Says he's ready to go 90 minutes now, and feels fine, likes having the first leg of the quarters at home:

And La Liga has at least given the Submarine an extra day of rest after the Twente trip; they'll be under the Monday Night Lights against Zaragoza.

Of modest interest (nothing terribly groundbreaking or revelatory), here's a digital interview Giuseppe Rossi did with El País.  Further evidence he's an all-round great guy, as we all know...

Those of you following team members on twitter should add AngelLopez6 to your list.  Angel just joined, says his recovery is coming along well.

And finally a report we might be interested in a Toulouse defender.  He's considered to be a good left back, simple but efficient, not always at ease going forward.  Doesn't sound an improvement over Catalá or Joan Oriol to me.
