I post a lot of Athletic Bilbao but also Spain (especially Rojita), Real Madrid, Arsenal and others.

#Hockey is always tagged for your filtering convenience and is mostly Blackhawks, Hurricanes, Flyers & Bruins. There will be an excess of Staals.

Sigh.

Stoked for Guillermo to score a lovely first Champions League goal, bummed we couldn’t manage at least a point from a match that didn’t actually suck too bad. Considering the other game in the group today and Porto’s previous games though, I guess I should be happy it was such a close (and small) final score.

An interesting day for Aritz to say the least. Beautifully converted penalty to give us the early lead, and then a series of narrowly disallowed goals and misses that could have had Athletic 4-0 up by halftime. Alas, Celta instead equalized late and were able to take a point.

A point though, considering recent results, is much better than nothing for Athletic.

I keep Liking this so I can Unlike it and watch that little heart breaking icon. Because it’s accurate.

Not the best game overall, and a slow start to our Champions League campaign, but overall not too bad. Can’t say I’m surprised to see a slow start and some scoring struggles- those seem to be par for the course at the start of every Athletic season.

Clean sheet and a point at least, and considering the goal-fest that Porto had tonight, I think we’re going to need all the points we can get.

Well, losing to Barca at Camp Nou isn’t all that surprising, but of course it’s not fun either. Overall a great match though, end to end ridiculousness and Athletic were right in there until the second late goal. It was a rather clowny display of colors, but I did quite enjoy seeing both teams in their flag-themed away kits today too.

All in all a decent and challenging warm-up before we welcome Shakhtar this week to start the Champions League.

The boys are heading back to Bilbao after winning their qualifying group for the U21 Euros. The final playoff draw for the tournament will be Friday.
…uh, I hope they didn’t forget to bring little Unai home with them too.
