Happy Birthday, and Happy Anniversary!

We'd be remiss here at VillarrealUSA if we didn't wish a big happy 24th birthday on the 1st of February to our Bambino, Giuseppe Rossi, currently enjoying his best season ever and newly signed up as part of the Villarreal family until 2016. As those of you following him on Twitter may know, he's a big fan of cupcakes, and we hope he enjoys some today!!

And for that matter, a happy first anniversary on the job to our coach Juan Carlos Garrido. His record since being hired is mighty impressive: 78 points in 39 league matches, including an astonishing 17-1-1 record at El Madrigal, and the 45 points Villarreal have amassed in 21 rounds of the league so far this season are a team record, and an all-time record for a third-placed team. But apart from the numbers, he's brought back the pride and the passion that we associate with this amazing club. Happy first anniversary in charge, el mister, and thanks.

We wish both of them many years of continued success with the Yellow Submarine!
