I didn't find any proper thread,so I decided to open this thread,
Kike Sola out for 3-4 weeks? that is what I just saw on facebook but my spanish is not good and I don't know basque, what happened? Aduriz alone now? Torquero is not reliable for scoring, so maybe Ibai will be the best option for Striking position either as a substitute or starter I guess for next 3-4 weeks.

Celta have looked really potent this year thus far...I have been really impressed with the precision of their passing and the spped they move the ball from the back to the front.They also aren't afraid to use width with we struggle against imo.

They are not be underestimated and there is a chance,like the final competitive match at San Mames,that our boys could be distracted and lack focus.

Attacking options with us are always limited since the big man left.

Valverde clearly doesn't fancy Sola so his injury id by the by as far as i'm concerned.

We need a bigger contribution from midfield and Ibai and De Marcos offre the best options there imo.

Athletic plays a friendly in Amorebieta today and Valverde has called 3 players from BA: Aketxe, Guillermo and Sabin Merino. BA's best player and two possible covers for Sola's absence in the next 3-4 weeks.

Iago, Iraizoz.
Laporte, San José, Albizua, Iraola, Etxeita, Gurpegi, Saborit.
Morán, Beñat, Iturraspe, De Marcos, Susaeta, Rico, Herrera, Aketxe.

Maybe Valverde saw the odds of Herrera going to United in the winter...?

Doesn't Aketxe play in Herrera's position in BA?

Is anyone from here visiting the first match in our new stadium? Bio? Iribar? I'm very interested to hear the first opinions after the match, the opinions about the stadium :).

I will be in Bilbao for the match against Valencia... but I fear, I won't be as lucky as I was for the Osasuna-match to get a ticket... :/

Hopefully the accolade and prestige of scoring the historic first goal in the new stadium will be a real incentive for our guys...whoever achieves that will be immortilised...hopefully it's a Vigoite!

It should be an incentive, agree, but however I want an Athletic player to score the first goal in San Mamés Barria!
It is annoying enough, that it wasn't an Athletic player to score the last goal in San Mamés... and that Athletic lost... :|

Just checked that Aurtenetxe can't play this game. It would be fun if San Mamés Barria's first goal is scored by Aurtenetxe....with Celta's shirt on. :D

Yes he does. So does Galarreta in Mirandés (MOM and winning goal last weekend against Madrid B)...and a younger Unai López. Position is well covered.

I will be in Spanish territory on Monday night... but in Pineda de Mar, Barcelona. Will definitely be watching in a bar, so I will have quite a unique memory of this unique match!

As has been said elsewhere tho, what a terrible time for any football match, never mind one with this significance to the supporters. If this schedule is for the benefit of Clasico fans in Latin America, clubs like Athletic and Celta better see more of the TV money soon! Its getting more ridiculous every season, maybe time for all the others to leave FCB and RM on their own so they can have all the grudge matches they want, and the rest can negotiate a fair deal!
