Arrives. It keeps. Rises. It falls sharply. disappear. Come back… The last time I saw him go, naked and sad. Get lost in the tunnel of the changing rooms of Montilivi until disappear. People don’t understand. She puts her head in her hands. Suddenly ‘those of that time’ arrive, those who preceded us and still remain, resist, as if they were the inhabitants of that fantastic city in which no one died: “The next day no one died.”
This is how it starts Joseph Saramago to his disturbing novel ‘Las intermitencias de la muerte’. Chaos in the city of the living elders. Until death returned to continue carrying out his clean and silent work.
Something had to be done, thought Ernesto Valverde…
Otherwise, people will jump on us, and rightly so. It was about ‘resurrecting’ to be able to measure up against Alzira. There where Portu fell. And he fell silent. Of falling and losing my speech before my sad figure installed between the seats of the stands of the ‘Luis Suñer’ stadium. It rained. And Athletic, intermittent, as if it were impossible for them to free themselves from that condition of an oscillating team.
Something that, well thought out, is essential for the euphoric Athleticzale world to resurface after having moved breathing sulfur among the flames of hell where the most terrifying football matches are played. Something will have to be done, return the donkey to the wheat. Valverdeturning his head at the doors of a athletic club vs Royal Valladolid “very important”.
They were giving him the murga on account of Gorka Guruzeta and his ability to see the goal in short spaces of time. He summoned him to Lezama to leave the ‘herd’ and approach him. Take my arm, he told the soccer player. So that. Don’t ask questions and obey your coach. He took it. And now, twist it for me.
Gorka did not understand the staging of the metaphorical saying. And that was how ‘Ernesto Valverde gave his arm to twist’. Guruzeta would be part of the game in the “very important” match to be played against Real Valladolid de’pacheta‘. That man who, during his time as a player, specialized in scoring goals against Athletic under the gaze of a Jose Iragorri chastened: “Patxeta, who else? Pacheta again,” he said into his microphone Herri Irratia.
With Guruzeta as ‘nine’, Valverde could recover that lethal couple that gave his Athletic so much back in the middle of the second decade of the century.
Inaki Williams. Iñaki, finally, heeled to the right to exploit his insulting speed for Athletic…
Go discounting rivals until, near the bottom line, insert the ball in that space of the area in which the defense backs away and his teammates viciously fix their gaze on the figure of the goalkeeper. The first goal of the triad that Athletic conceded to Masip It was a carbon copy of those of that time, when Athletic’s ‘intermittent game’ brought him glory.
Iñaki put it in luxury to Aduriz. ‘The Old One’ [el tiempo pasa; nos vamos poniendo viejos], more ‘Zorro’ than ever, decided to annihilate the goalkeeper by ripping his body twice with his mythical sword. Leaving his Zeta sign, Aritz Aduriz vanished as it is said of the resurrected who return to life so that we know that they are still alive in the eternal. It was then that Gorka Guruzeta began to show himself to San Mamés as his most fervent devotee.
