1. Best basque player
Probably not his best year but I think he´s nowadays the best player, I´m talking about Xabi Alonso. Only Yeste could have something to say about it but his lack of regularity kills him. He hasn´t probably conquered english market as Iván Campo (;)) but Xabi has vision, has pass, has intelligence and defends well, maybe he lacks speed but does he need it? I´m sure Fish agrees with me.:D

2. Best non-basque player in a basque club
Nihat comes to my mind but I give my vote to Pablo García. I´m not a fan of his personality but can´t deny he´s the leader of Osasuna and an excellent midfielder. Appart from defending well he also plays the ball, a very solid partnership with Patxi Puñal.

3. Worst basque player (ay aitor aitor )
I made this category just so I could vote Aitor Karanka.:D

4. The surprise of the year
He already showed sparks of his class in 2003 but 2004 has been Andoni Iraola´s year, no doubt. He isn´t excellent technically but I think he´s one of the most intelligent players in the sport. As a winger he offers help, center & goal while as a right back he adds defense and surprise, excellent player.

5. The confirmation of the year
I can´t vote one, they have to go together as they always do. Fran Yeste and Asier Del Horno (Zipi & Zape) have been more consistant this year although I still think they can give much more.;)

6. Basque team of the year
For the UEFA qualification, and the level shown in this competititon it has to be Athletic. Only Eibar could say something about it.;)

7. Basque/basque-team coach of the year
I could think in Irureta (semis of CL), Valverde (UEFA qualification), Lotina (super-Espanyol) or even Mendilibar with his Eibar but my vote goes to the man who made Monaco Champions League finalist (with Madrid humilliation included:D ), Didier Deschamps.

8. Best game of the year


Any doubt about it?:cool:

9. Your player bet for 2005 (who will be the surprise)
Xabi Prieto, Igor Angulo, Mikel Labaka, Manuel Almunia..... but I vote for Asier Riesgo. I think this is going to be his year.


10. Your hope for 2005

Will we make it 21 years later?




...it´s in our hands..:hopefull:

Special mention for a career
I don´t know if he´s finally retiring this season but Bittor Alkiza deserves a mention for so many years of great football and for being such a noble man.



The rest for other day.;)
