What 'lucky' rituals do you have when Villarreal plays?

New, comments

Players have superstitions when they play--always putting the same foot on the pitch first, 'lucky' socks, that sort of thing...and coaches sometimes have 'lucky' ties, jackets, etc. What about you? When you watch Villarreal play, what do you do?

There's a week left in the transfer window and depending on whom you believe, Denis Cheryshev is definitely going to Valencia (Superdeporte), is likely to go to Valencia (AS, etc.), or, in fact, there is no Valencia offer and the only club that has offered to take him is Villarreal (COPE).  WHO KNOWS?

So let's take a break from all that.  Today's musings were prompted by a young Villarreal fan on twitter (living in Vila-real) who gave "rules" such as whenever you go to Castellón, wear a Villarreal shirt, and sing the Villarreal anthem as you pass by Castellón's football ground.

That got me thinking--all of us, except for maybe Robin, are nowhere near Vila-real, have to watch the matches on TV or via a stream, sometimes can't make them all so have to rely on updates through our site and so on.

Do you have any pregame rituals, or in-game rituals to help the Yellow Submarine to victory?  However ridiculous, however small?  Let us know!
