Players called by Caparrós for the game tomorrow.

Iraizoz, Armando.
Ustaritz, Amorebieta, Iraola, Aitor Ocio, Balenziaga.
David López, Yeste, Gabilondo, Susaeta, Orbaiz, Gurpegi, Javi Martínez.
Del Olmo, Llorente, Etxeberria, Ion Vélez.

Suspended: -
Injured: Murillo, Garmendia.
Out: Lafuente, Koikili, Casas, Muñoz, Iñigo.
With BA: Iturraspe.

A recovered Orbaiz enters for Iturraspe, who returns to Bilbao Athletic, at least for this game. From what Caparrós has trained today it looks like Yeste could enter for Vélez in the starting lineup... Llorente a lonely island upfront again? :wallbang:

I actually like that, it fits Yeste perfect and we played fantastic football with that formation when Valverde coached us. But Lopez and Susaeta must play like real wingers without any big defensive responsibility.

Since Valverde left everytime we've played with a 4-2-3-1 it has been a fiasco, specially away from San Mamés. In fact, Valverde also played with a 4-4-2 on away games.

It was:

HOME

Aranzubia
Iraola - Murillo - Prieto - Del Horno
Orbaiz - Gurpegi
Etxeberria - Yeste - Ezquerro
Urzaiz

AWAY

Aranzubia
Murillo - Gurpegi - Prieto - Del Horno/Casas
Iraola - Tiko - Orbaiz - Yeste
Etxeberria - Ezquerro

With the 4-2-3-1 away (where the defense plays deeper than home) we suffer in defense -the wingers don't help that much the wingbacks- and in attack -Llorente is too lonely, specially if the slow Yeste is the one in charge of fighting for all the air balls Fernando wins.-

I'm definately for the 4-4-2, with the wingers helping in defense and Llorente with a partner who can 1.fight for those air balls Fernando wins and 2.Take some defenders away from him, since they have to mark 2 players instead of one.

Btw, today the newspaper says that Ion Vélez will play as starter, so we don't know. If Caparrós repeats Sunday's lineup it will be the first time he does it since he's Athletic's coach.

What's up with Etxebe?
Joseba has started the season pretty out of form, he was bad vs Almería. At least it looks like he's improved in these 2 weeks since he looked on form in the last minutes vs Valladolid. That, added to Ion Vélez's good performances have sent him to the bench. Joseba is still very important for the team, but the generational change has to come, better if it's step by step.

Anyway, with Llorente and Vélez as only strikers Etxebe has lots of minutes guaranteed this season. I wonder how many minutes will Iñigo play this season... I see Isma López making his debut before him...:rolleyes:

Well, we have some decent chances, Velez had a good try, but considering that we haven't scored and the yellow cards on Balenziaga, Ocio and Javimar, it's quite a bad half if we're going for three points.

What's interesting about Recre is that they almost always attack from their left with Poli-Sisi but Iraola's done a good job in denying them, Ocio's also been good.

The stream is down for me as well:(

From the little ive seen in the second half it have been a verry bad game for Athletic, a lucky goal and Gorka saving us with great saves a couple of times. Dont know about the first half but we sure ddint deserve the point in the second. So slow and with no creativity...

This team will have nothing to do with the top 6.
