I'm not allowed to scout outside Spain and France for the most part. I'd have to buy him sight unseen. Not sure if I'm willing to do that. Also, his position doesn't help him at all. I have Javi Martinez and Ander Herrera at CM, then there's also Iturraspe and Galarreta, plus those two newgens.
And in a rubber match on the final day of the season, the Basque Country played host to a team from the Capital, with tens of millions of dollars in Champions League revenue on the line. What do you think was going to happen at The Cathedral?
Muniain played the best first half I have ever seen. 2 goals, assisted the Gabilondo goal, and set up 3 more clear cut chances before the 45 minute mark.
Gabilondo, arguably our best player in the second half of the season, when the team morale was in the gutter, scored effectively the goal that sealed Bilbao's place in next season's Champions League in his final game for the club. He will retire in the summer. Thank you, Igor.
I was going to ask if you had Monreal... So good to see you do. I recommend the shortlist Ruffin and Azpilicueta. The gk was a good player enough for France back-up. And I had the RB for Vilarreal and he was solid.
Monreal has been my only purchase so far. Ruffier is coming this season, already purchased for 11.5m Euros. Cesar Azpilicueta is shamefully expensive, sadly. The two Sociedad players were just sold, so hopefully they'll be interested in coming here after a year or two when it's not a direct transfer.
