I wonder, has Valverde wondered what will happen if Aduriz gets injured -knock wood ? Are we gonna start the prayers? Or at the matches where he'll be suspended due to the large amount of cards he gets?

We surely need an attacker, just not to be soooo predictable. Sola and Toquero not for Primera (and ChL of course!!) and Borja Viguera seems to be the new diaz de Cerio. Guillermo seems to me the best next option, but he seems soft and "scared".

And one more, why Iraola is benched? I think he is clearly a better right back than de Marcos + de Marcos could play elsewhere. Anyone else wondering the same? He is just 32, not 35!

22': Muniain with a nice move on the left wing to cross it in to Laporte in the box, but he hooked it wide right.

If we don't get the three points in this match, then good night.
Our next Liga rival is Real Madrid...

Something is missing at Athletic... something that we had last season! :(

The guy who used to wear #21, that's for sure.

27': Arruabarrena with a beautiful low cross from the left side but Balenziaga clears. Otherwise, Piovaccari would've had an easy tap-in.

35': Susaeta with a ball into the area and Albentosa almost puts it in his own net. Corner for Athletic amounts to nothing though.

Oh yeah, Iraola also got a yellow. Here are your first-half stats:



71-29 edge in possession and yet they lead us in shots, 6-5? Incredible.

Same old same old rubbish unfortunately.

Passionless,pointless and paceless play which is our M.O. at the moment...nothing on target and looking vulnerable on the counter.

Our best player is licking the touchline and almost stuck in the first row of the stands.

Playing like the bottom three side we currently are.

Big 45 coming up.
