Around 3000 Athletic supporters will be on Thursday in Liège after (of course) making a ritual stop in Amsterdam.;)

Valverde has called 20 players since some as Del Horno, Karanka or Yeste are doubt for this game. Remember Lafuente, Javi González and Lacruz are still injured.

Goalkeepers: Aranzubia, Pampín.

Defenders: Karanka, Del Horno, Javi Casas, L.Prieto, Iraola, Murillo, César.

Midfielders: Yeste, Julen Guerrero, Jonan, Solabarrieta, Gurpegi, Orbaiz, Tiko.

Attackers: Arriaga, Ezquerro, Urzaiz, Etxeberria.


Will we (finally) see our first win away from San Mamés?:hopefull:

For those of you in Europe (sorry for the rest) who have a satellite dish, TV Sport (RO) on Sirius @ 5 deg East are broadcasting the game tonight on FTA (free-to-air). I'll try and point at it although the size of my dish is just about enough to tune it on a good weather day (so say the experts). Today we've got 50 mph winds in Dublin!!! :irritate: :irritate: :irritate:

For more info on satellite footie check this website. It's pretty good.

AUPA ATHLETIC!!!

PS: Please never tell my girlfriend I asked for the satellite system as a birthday present mainly to watch football and Athletic in particular, even if it's only the highlights in the news after the games!!! If she knew....... :broken:

lol that is so something I would do :howler: I guess that's what obsession does to us :stoned:

good luck with your game by the way....i've said it loooong time ago (under my old user name Stinkfist) and I'll say it again - I have alot of admiration and respect for Athletic Bilbao and their youth/player policy. :)

Oh dear, here we start again, Urzaiz in the bench, Tiko is playing. I don´t know what system is Valverde playing but you all know what´s my opinion (and most of the people´s) about playing without a pure striker, even more if finally Ezquerro plays there. If Urzaiz doesn´t play at least put Azkorra (but he´s in Bilbao:eek: ) but not Ezquerro as striker, or the Ezquerro-Etxebe attack that never works!!!:mad: I hope it works today but our record without a pure striker is horrible! And I don´t understand why Tiko has to play if he´s been pathetic this season!

Anyway, I hope it works and we win, but I think Txingurri is playing with fire here, at least he isn´t playing Karanka this time...:rolleyes:

I don´t know what will be the system, probably a 4-2-3-1 with Ezquerro as striker and Yeste on the left, also something like this could be...

.....................Aranzubia

Iraola.........Murillo........L.Prieto.........Del Horno

...............Gurpegi.......Orbaiz

Tiko.........................................Yeste

..............Etxebe.......Ezquerro

We´re playing light blue shirt, black shorts and socks.:eek:

We´re playing this::eek::confused:

...................Aranzubia

Murillo.......Gurpegi.....L.Prieto.....Del Horno

...............Tiko......Orbaiz

Iraola..................................Yeste

..............Etxebe...Ezquerro

Yellow card for Gurpegi in the first minute, possible penalty for hand of a Standard defender and great chance for Standard in a header that went out for milimeters. Nice game, high rythm.

GOAAAAAAAAAAAAAALLLLLLLLLLL EZQUERROOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!

Great play between Etxebe and Tiko and Ezquerro just had to push the ball to the goal.

AUPA ATHLETIC!!!!

I would love to eat my words today.;)

Half time: Standard 1-3 Athletic

In the other game: Parma 2-1 Besiktas (with this score we would qualify even loosing by one)


Well, what an exciting game, it´s having everything; goals, chances for both teams, injuries (a Standard defender), a missed penalty and even a post, Murillo sent the ball to his own post in a corner.:dazed: Standard is playing dangerous long balls to their tanks while Athletic is making great counters with our fast forwards Etxebe and Ezquerro. What an envy all those Athletizales in Liegè.

I hope the second half is more calmed for Athletic, C´mon lions!

Parma game is interesting too, but I really want to see that game.... :sigh:

Anyway, it's good to hear that Athletic is leading the game...I just hope they can keep up the pace and seal the victory! :boxing:

Txupa, I'm afraid that this question is not related with Athletic, but hows' Sergio Conceicao doing in Standard?? I'm guessing he has some troubles with Del Horno :rollani:

Also, How's Tiko?? I just want to see his rocket style shot again :smileani:

Just after the goal, there has been 2 clear penalties in the same play, to Etxebe and Yeste, but the referee was ashamed of signing it I suppose...
