Discussion Starter #1
Ive noticed recently with Athletics siuation ,the old discussion about changing the philosospy of Athletic and buying players from outside euskadi has come up again...in newspapers,tv ,radio and within sites like aupaathletic itself.

Im surprised at some people who use the examples of madrid ,barca and them having foreigners and if Athletic had players from Brazil of Argentina that we could win titles.i think that is nonsense.

If we did buy from those countries with our financial problems, we could only buy bargain basement type players who would not add a great deal of quality to our team anyway and we have all seen that teams like Betis,,Atl Madrid and Celta with alot of average extranjeros in their squads have been relegated in recent years , so having extranjeros is not going to make sure that we never get relegated.

And i wonder if people realise, that whatever advantage we could gain with changing our tradition, we also could lose some very special things ,like our identity and sense of unity that has been our hallmark for 108 years.

just wondering what eveyone else thinks?

That discussion sometimes appears when things go bad, but it´s always provoked by certain media groups who want to control Athletic and certain people not related to Athletic. Logically there´s people in Athletic who want foreigneers but it´s a minority although they make more noise when things go bad. That´s not a debate in Athletic´s social mass.
