0-0 Half time

Ok first half, but Villarreal is the better team. Think it is too easy for them to play through Amorebieta and Ocio. They are not playing well, and neither are we. Let's hope for a draw or a lucky winner

By the way, Toquero is fighting, but has no luck. Let's try Etxeberria

Garmendia on for Toquero

wouldn't say they are so much better, Im quite disappointed by Villareal's performance tbh...

yes...Athletic is so up & down...just hope another "up" will come soon....0 points in 8 matches against top 4, thats tragical...no other La Liga team is such top club specialist..

another terrible season for basque football in general - Osasuna and now also Athletic around the relegation zone, Alavés and Eibar relegating, Erreala nowhere near promotion places...

so we are 2 points above relegation at the moment due to Nekounam's last minute winner...do you need any more motivation guys?

there are two positive things though :

1) international break including a friendly match against Girondins Bordeaux in Saint-Jean-de-Luz
(just hope Llorente won't get injured again)

2) we are actually two points below the 10th place as well...

we need to start winning now; we'll face direct rivals in 7 of the 10 remaining games...

No need to panic yet. Easier matches lie ahead and a lot of teams with similar points totals. Susaeta's sending off was ridiculous-the refs in Spain are a pretty poor crop.
