The Gary Neville experiment at Valencia has gone very, very poorly. They haven't won in La Liga in 12 games, and Neville says his obituary is already written. However, he said he won't resign, and he seems very annoyed at the criticism.

"I said before I came that I would be judged in five months," said Neville. "I have been judged in six weeks."

Valencia fans are not a patient bunch. Here's a lot of them giving Neville the finger.
