Hi, Drago, good to see you around :thmbup: It´s a good idea but I´m afraid we don´t have many chances to know the other teams´players. I mean I know Erreala and Sanse players but I´ve never seen most of Athletic, Osasuna or Alaves young players play. Anyway we could try and see what happens...
It´s a bit exaggerated because Larrea and Garmendia are too ofensive to play them there, you could put Markel or Ibon Gutierrez though. Also Amorebieta or Tarantino could have a place. Who I don´t know if could play is Kepa Blanco, from Sevilla.
I´m sure Riesgo wouldn´t have problems with the anthem this time.
-> Fernando Llorente is from La Rioja but he has already played for Euskadi young teams.
Yes, Labaka is 24. There are other 2 good CBs in Sanse who may soon become Primera players : Azparren and Mikel Gonzalez. Azparren has already been on the bench in the last games. This is interesting as we´ve been lacking good CBz in Sanse lately. Anyway the one I like most is Fagoaga (Eibar), he may be a bit short, but he´s fast, strong and a great defender. My team :
In fact I only change Fagoaga for Goikoetxea from Txupa´s team, but I admit I don´t know Garmendia or Llorente as well as you. Txupa,Thor, could Agirretxe be there? What do you think? Is Llorente better?
Well, Llorente and Garmendia play now in Segunda B, so saying if they´re so good is a bit risky. Then of course, if everything goes as it should they´re 2 players with a great future and should be important players for Athletic. Lezama coaches have hope in that generation, with Garmendia, Llorente, Amorebieta, Andoitz, Campanera or De Paula.
Agirretxe is younger, although he´s very strong so he could maybe be there, although I still prefer Llorente right now(for age at least). I haven´t followed much Imanol now that he´s on Erreala but if he continues his amazing progression he has everything, physically and technically to be a football star, now of course, if his head works well, that´s a thing I doubt more...
I forgot Solabarrieta true, well if we had to do a realistic team it would need a real DM so Aritz, Markel or Ibon should be there instead of Garmendia or Larrea. I prefer Garrido to Casas, still Casas could be there in the center instead of Goiko, to give it more Primera flavour.
BTW, I think Fagoaga is older than 21, I remember looking to Eibar´s squad in the beginning of the season and the only U21 were Paul Abasolo (from lezama) and that Silva guy loaned by Valencia.
