The Wroclaw Polish Masters tournament will be held on July 21 and 22, at Stadion Miejski in Poznan, Poland. The other clubs participating are, PSV Eindhoven (Netherlands), Benfica (Portugal), and Slask Wroclaw (Poland).
Depending on where you live, because I’ve heard the shipping prices can get kind of ridiculous, there is always Athletic’s official online store.
Personally (Mod no. 2 Here) I was lucky enough to have ordered one from Amazon earlier last year when they were selling it, but unfortunately that shop isn’t up anymore. So your next best chance is probably to look around on Ebay.
“We deserve to win this final and this trophy. We put our heart and soul into every game and we’re a team that gives its all. We’ve managed to move on from the setback of the last final and we have a chance in this one. I don’t know what percentage, but we have a chance. If we can bring our best to the field and cause Barcelona problems, we can beat them”—Fernando Llorente
Mod no. 2 doesn’t think anyone would disagree that this isn’t the way any of us wished for our league campaign to end.
A draw in our last home match, losing the Europa League, and a loss in the last league match (complete with a penalty), let’s be real kinda leaves a bad taste in one’s mouth.
But this was one hell of a league campaign. Even though we’ve finished in 10th place, and there were absolute slump periods we can look back and be proud of the things we did achieve and accomplishments made this season. We had an eleven match streak without a loss, Fernando Llorente scored his 100th goal for the club this season, we made it to the finals of two competitions, and we still have the Copa del Rey final to look forward to in a few weeks. And we by default have a spot in the next season’s Europa League competition.
So, you may feel a little down now, but I for one am glad that I was around for a season like this and all of the emotions that came with it.
Iraizoz; Iraola, Ekiza, Amorebieta, De Marcos; Iturraspe, Herrera, Toquero; Susaeta, Ibai, Muniain. With Raúl, San José, David López, Llorente, Gabilondo, Koikili, and Javi Martínez on the bench. The match starts in about 45 minutes.
Well, this is an interesting question, normally if you ask us a question non-anon we answer them privately but since it’s just me (Mod. 1), right now I’ll answer it publicly and eventually Mod. 2 will put her opinion in!
My favorite current player if I had to choose would be a tie between kapis, Carlos Gurpegui and Andoni Iraola are both reference points for this team that I will cherish forever. I have so much respect for Gurpe and I have always gotten so much enjoyment from watching Andoni on the pitch that for me, they are and have been priceless assets to this “pride”.
(Mod no. 2, here) My current favorite is Oscar de Marcos. He honestly used to be another number to me, but he’s improved so much and it’s been so entertaining to watch him play this season. And my “permanent” favorite is Toquero. I have so much respect for him. He’s always giving it 110% when he plays no matter what. He doesn’t score a ton of goals but he deserves each one he does score.
