I was really surprised with this to. I always have seen Julen kind of as a symbol of what Athletic stands for, and maybe the player that plays with the most heart.
From a neutral stand point I'd say Atheltic have been changing their image a bit. Getting the jersey advertisements, selling Julen.... if these things come true I can see alot of unhappy socio's at the cathedral.
What a wasted talent...Julen was so brilliant 10 years ago, who don´t remember the "Julenmania"? What has happened to him? How can be someone an idol (not only in Euskadi, but in Spain) and years later a forgotten player?
Yes and they´ve loaned Simeone just so they don´t meet in the changing room....
Why don´t they let us alone? The last Marca cover about Athletic I remember was the one saying we had signed Mendieta just the day before our return leg of the Cup against Madrid, stop inventing!
Aupa Julen, forever a lion!
And even though Julen isn´t the world star he used to be, he could still add a lot to the team if he had a decent chance, but apparently all the chances are for pateTIKO, who keeps on sucking on every chance he has but continues playing.
