The Quiet Captain
[dropcap]T[/dropcap]here’s a lot to be said about Antonio Valencia’s blockbusting opening strike against Everton last weekend; the sweetness of the hit, the sheer ferocity of the shot, and the pleasing sound of the ball thumping the back of the net. Perhaps the most noteworthy observation was the understated way the Ecuadorian celebrated his goal. He simply jogged back and crossed his chest before acknowledging an onrushing Phil Jones. Captain quiet.
