Daudén...careful...:scared:

Ocio played on Sunday even if he wasn't at 100%, but Ustaritz was suspended and looks like Caparrós doesn't trust in Prieto, even if in an interview a couple of months ago he said that Prieto was going to be very important in the last games of the season... Anyway, with Ustaritz back and Aitor still with problems in the knee it is probable to see Usta as starter on Sunday.

Fran had some calf injury but it looks like he can make it (he never trains during the week!:rolleyes: ) and let's see if Garmendia repeats after his good performance vs Espanyol or Caparrós plays a pure attacker as Etxebe or Aduriz.

Since we're already safe from relegation Orbaiz is going to have surgery on one of his ankles, apparently he's been having some problems lately. He'll miss the rest of the season, 3-4 months out. This has nothing to do with the injury he got vs Recre, he's had it from before, just that they prefer to make the operation now so he can start next season. Another summer in the gym Pablo! get well soon!

And talking about injuries, today Del Horno got injured and will be around 3 weeks out. At least one of the game he misses is vs Valencia, game he couldn't play due to the loan agreement.

Ustaritz and Gabilondo also had problems in today's training but it doesn't look too serious. Looks like it wasn't the best of the days in Lezama...

Players called by Caparrós to face Deportivo:

Armando, Aranzubia.
Ustaritz, Amorebieta, Koikili, Iraola, Murillo, Aitor Ocio.
Garmendia, Yeste, Gabilondo, Cuéllar, Muñoz, J.Martínez, D.López.
Llorente, Etxeberria, Aduriz.

Suspended: -
Kidnapped: Gurpegi.
Injured: Iraizoz, Del Horno, Orbaiz, Tiko.
Out: Expósito, Zubiaurre, Prieto, Susaeta.

-----

Susaeta will play for Bilbao Athletic this weekend, to help them avoid relegation. When we thought (listening to Caparrós words) that we were going to fight hard to at least try to qualify to Europe, now it seems that Bilbao Athletic's objectives are more important than the first team... Appart, BA's problems aren't the players but Liñero's tactics. Anyway, hopefully David López and/or Cuéllar will make good use of their chance tomorrow.

...and out of nowhere, suddenly comes Cuellar! Very strange decisions from Jokin...

Btw,there heave been rumours linking PAO with Exposito.I guess it's only nonsense from Greek papers,but has anything been heard/written there?

Also, Deportivo hasn't lost (till now...) with Dauden Ibanez in Riazor (6-3-0).

Seems a bit silly, surely the first team should be the main priority.

Still, as you said at least it'll give Lopez and/or Cuéllar a chance in the team. Infact I'm a little surprised they haven't been sent to the B team instead to help them out considering they haven't played much recently.

They can't play for Bilbao Athletic, only Susaeta can because he has a B team squad number. In fact, I thought Susaeta couldn't either, because he has played more than 10 games with the first team but apparently that law changed and players with more than 10 games can play, as long as they're under 23 and have a B team number.

BTW, finished: Bilbao Athletic 0-0 Ponferradina. One point against the leader isn't bad watching the recent form, but not enough. Was Susaeta really necessary for this?

Do we feel too confident now?
Leaving Susaeta and going for surgery with Orbaiz. I followed Alemannia Aachen last year, and they were in 8th position at this time last year in the bundesliga, but still relegated.
And. is avoiding relegation everything there is...?

At least Deportivo is a sure bet tomorrow...

I read he had everything agreed with PAO in the winter market, but they had to free one space in their squad and they couldn't. They are interested again now, but apparently Expósito will most probably return to Numancia if they promote to Primera, which is almost sure.

And you didn't tell me :cry: :mad: :smileani:?
Will Numancia want him then ? He has forgot how to play football, he can't be that bad, Iraola also needs to take a rest.

And mellansnack,add also the fact that this year,in 15 games with Dauden,only one visitor has escaped with 3 points and also the good form of Depor.

But we always should trust our lions! Aupa Athletic!

Aupa Athletic!!!
Hopefully,another win today and loss of espanyol and almeria.
Also,hopefully Bilbao athletic will get enough points to remain in Segunda and won't relegate to tercera.
Iribar,if really the coach of bilbao athletic is reason of the mess,then why don't they sack him?

I have read some old threads in this forum lately, and Tiko seems such a good player. What happened with him?
And why doesn't Etxeberria play? Would have been nice seeing him on the right wing. Anyone got a stream?

Good chance for Llorente who headed soft a great cross by Koi from the left.

Depor pushes now.

We're in fact playing a 4-5-1 with Garmendia in midfield, Llorente is too lonely upfront.

Armando
Iraola - Aitor Ocio - Amorebieta - Koikili
Javi Martínez
D.López - Garmendia - Yeste - Gabilondo
Llorente​
