A big fail from Iago (running out of his goal) leads Elche to the lead.
They are way better anyways..

Another evening ruined, but at least it's a sunday...

Iago is a moderate keeper...hopeless on crosses and has no command of his area.

Against Depor the back line was constantly looking behind for him to come for the ball..he generally didn't and that led us to hack the ball anywhere.

The defence has no confidence in him and to be fair thats understandable when he makes things up as he goes along without a game plan.

Awful keeper...good shot stopper.

More than happy to skip Europe this year.

After the Copa final that would leave 2 weeks off before resuming training for the qualifiers...can do without that.

Lets build for a good season next term.

2:0 for Elche... thank you, Pathetic Club! -.- :mad:

About Iago..
Well, he was in a good form before his injury but now... I don't feel comfortable at all with him as a goalkeeper (especially in the cup final).

Why the hell is Gorka not starting? If this is some ploy to get Iago some experience before May 30, well, it's backfiring. :groan:

The guy is shit..I was trying to be diplomatic.

Gorka must start in the final but the fashion to give the understudy a cup run seems to guarantee this complete hopless and hapless tit a game.

Youy play your best team regardless of the competition.

Is there any chance Gorka will play in the cup final? Or are there contracts, that say that Iago has to play no matter what (except of being injured of course)?

Because... if I was Valverde, I would play Gorka... in EVERY match given the fact of Iagos current form...

No contracts to that effect Lucy.

Just the fashion to give some of the extras a game.

This match is huge for us and although we probably have little chance,the goal keeping role is critical if we are to be in any way competitive.

Okay, got that.

So, if Valverde plays Iago in the cup final alltough he is able to see, that Iago won't suit at all for this match, I will be very, very angry.

This match does mean a lot to our club and I don't want to hear "little chances"... no, I want everybody to f***ing fight for a damn victory!! :/
