I'd play Ramalho instead of one of the attackers and play with SanJo and Itu in midfield.

Interesting line-up. Think we will dominate the midfield, but I guess Espanyol scores after a blunder by San Jose. Too bad Ekiza is injurded and Amorebieta out...

Isma López returns (he hadn't been in a list for a while, right?). As you know last season he stopped playing like 2-3 days before Athletic started preseason, due to his team Lugo playing the promotion playoffs.

Bielsa used him a lot during the first part of the season (Europa League for example) to take profit from his state of form and then we all saw his total drop of form during the last months of 2012.

He's been the last couple of months resting and doing his own preseason, so hopefully he can add to the team from now on to the end of the season.

Such a shame these injuries keep ruining our continuity of selection especially since we have turned in some decent performances lately.

Tonight is a real "6 pointer" versus a side in the drop with us.

A win lifts us nine points above the drop and gives us a platform to push on in the latter part of the season.

The defence worries me incredibly and whilst the onus is on us to attack we must be sensible and provide some midfield cover for the back four.

Fancy us to win tonight however....I haven't said that since the Europa League Final! #jinxytarquin

We must not concede first if at all.

That is absolutely critical.

Crappy start, but we are now dominating. Still able to play hasardious as the last defender though. We are playing with small margins all over actually...

Muniain injurded. I guess he needs the same pre-season as Isma Lopez. Was playing bad the first minutes.

Susaeta should have scored twice

The team has not played badly and created numerous chances.

The problem was a ridiculous foul by San Jose and embarrassing defending from the resultant free kick.

As I said earlier defence was the issue and not conceding first.

We have a mountain to climb now.

This reminds me of the Zaragoza game..we had just found a bit of form and the chance to move away from relegation and blew it.

A draw now looks our best chance and that is still short of what we need.

Look at the state of opposition for ****s sake...we should not be losing to a team like that.
