    Very well written piece Julen. Having worked in Bilbao for a few months in the early 1980’s, I can confirm with Julen that the local people are indeed very similar to us Geordies in many ways. It’s a beautiful city & region & I still keep in touch with friends I made there over 30 odd years ago. I was lucky enough to watch a couple of Athletics’ home games at the stadium & was blown away with the passion, friendliness & hospitality of the Bilbao fans. Can’t think of any other ground in the world where the local fans would pass round the carafe’s of wine or cans of San Miguel during the match along with the sharing of the tapas & other snacks. These are some of the many experiences that I’ll never forget. I’m sure the late great Sir Bobby always dreamt of fielding a team full of Geordie locals which sadly has never & may never be realised although I applaud the stance that Athletic take on this with their squad.
    Zorte on Julen.
    Aupa Athletic.
