The new San Mams, Betis’ nightmare

The verdiblanco team, defeated in their seven visits to the new San Mams and imprisoned by an accused irregularity, seeks to take flight under the command of veteran Pellegrini

EL Athletic receives the Monday in San Mamés yet exemplary guest, of those who do not get you out of your boxes, nor do they make your day bitter when you act as a careful host. At least that’s how it happened every time Betis has paraded through the new Cathedral since its opening the world in September 2013. The previous two years, when the old rojiblanco coliseum was farewell, the story was very different, as the verdiblanco team won 2-3 (2011-12) and 3-5 (2012-13) with Beñat Etxebarria as the scorer in both stakes. The lions, with Marcelo Bielsa on the bench, were powerless against a rival who scored eight goals in 180 minutes to say goodbye to the top of a field that proceeded to close its doors to reincarnate in another in which Betis lives an authentic nightmare.

In total they are seven visits and as many defeats that the Andalusians have suffered in the new San Mamés, six in the league and one in the Cup, with a balance of thirteen goals against and only three in favor. His torture began on September 26, 2013, in the sixth league match, when Athletic beat the Verdiblancos 2-1 with goals from Óscar de Marcos and Mikel San José. The target signed by the now Granada striker, Jorge Molina, was of no use, since the lions tied the three points under the orders of Ernesto Valverde to repeat the triumph four months later in the second leg of the round of 16 tournament of the KO a double by Mikel Rico served to turn the tie around and leave Betis in the gutter that has continued to collect defeats in their appearances in Bilbao when they were defeated uninterruptedly by 3-1 (2015-16), 2- 1 (2016-17), 2-0 (2017-18) and 1-0 (2018-19, 2019-20).

The team that leads nowadays Manuel PellegriniIn this way, he will try to put an end to a nightmare that has lasted for seven years on Monday. His visits to San Mamés, turned into a torment for his interests, put on alert a team that has other sources of concern apart from Athletic. The sounded and celebrated arrival of Pellegrini to the local bench of Benito Villamarín has not yet borne the expected fruits to a club that has been embracing irregularity since the 2017-18 campaign, in which it managed to qualify for the Europa League with Quique Setién as coach. The joy, however, was soon gone. He did so in a 2018-19 year full of ups and downs that led to the departure of the Cantabrian coach and the subsequent hiring of Joan Francesc Ferrer, better known as Rubí, who last season worsened the football records signed by Setién.

Once the decision of his dismissal had been made, the club opted for the experience and seniority of Pellegrini, ex-coach of equipment like San Lorenzo, River Plate, Villarreal, Real Madrid, Malaga, Manchester City, Hebei China Fortune and West Ham, his last destination prior to landing in a Betis that he tries to promote in the heat of an attractive football proposal. The numbers signed since the beginning of this season, however, highlight the tremendous difficulties of the Andalusian team to seal its goal, to the point of appearing as the most thrashed team in the category with 17 goals conceded in the nine league games disputed. Seventh in the standings without having seen any of their league games postponed and with twelve goals in their favor, Pellegrini’s men are looking for stability that is also reflected in the results, since they have four wins and five losses to date.


Without draws in between, something common in teams capable of the best and the worst, Betis can boast of having surpassed Alavés (0-1), Valladolid (2-0), Valencia (0-2) and Elche ( 3-1), although they have yielded to Real Madrid (2-3), Getafe (3-0), Real Sociedad (0-3), Atlético (2-0) and Barcelona (5-2). It is true that the demanding calendar has not greatly favored the acclimatization process of the Verdiblancos to the contrasting booklet of Pellegrini, a coach with fifteen clubs and thirteen titles in his curriculum who has recovered players like Cristian Tello and Tonny for the cause Sanabria and that he will try to break the Betic curse on Monday in the new San Mamés.

Muscle injury against germany

Canales, down against Athletic

Major absences. The league break motivated by international commitments has been adverse for the interests of Betis, which saw on Tuesday how Sergio Canales, one of its main assets, fell injured in the 9th minute of the game that faced Spain and Germany. The Cantabrian midfielder, a victim of a muscle injury, will be absent on Monday against Athletic in a date in which Nabil Fekir will not be present either. The Frenchman, another important man for Manuel Pellegrini, will have to wait to return to the pitch due to another muscular ailment. The Algerian center-back Aissa Mandi, meanwhile, will be out against the lions due to suspension after being sent off against Barça.

With seventeen goals against in nine games, the Verdiblancos appear as the team with the most goals in the category

The Municipal Band of Bilbao offers the concert ‘Memoria del septimo arte’

PThey MISS the pirouette but there are times when the simplest occurrence is the one that best fits the story. Let’s say that the music played yesterday by the Bilbao Municipal Band sounded like a cinema. How beautiful when this happens! The ease of which I was speaking is relevant because under the baton of José Ramón Pascual-Vilaplana, performed at the Arriaga Theater the plays Tribute to Ennio Morricone, of the Italian composer Claudio Mandonico;Silverado, from BruceBroughton, an eminent nine-time Emmys-winning and Hollywood Oscar-nominated composer, and The pawnshop (known among us as Chaplin, the moneylender), of the Galician composer, Antón Alcalde. The concert was titled Memory of the seventh art and it was organized as a tribute to the soundtracks that give air to cinema since it became sound. It was, believe me, quite a show, a recess for the audience.

Before the concert started you thought about it. Film music stirs our emotions, moves us, impresses us, imbues us in the film and makes us live stories. Some transport us to the imagination, and others to the cruel reality of life. Without it, cinema would not be what it is. We don’t need to watch a movie to enjoy your music. But could we see a movie – I think Star Wars, Titanic, The Lord of the rings, etc.– without its soundtrack? It’s hard to imagine, don’t say no.

As I thought about it, people were arriving. Among the first, the managing director of Bilbao Musika, Ana Madariaga, just moments before the Councilor for Culture did, Nekane alonso. Both greeted the clarinetist outside the theater Rafa Climent, to whom they congratulated for their daughter’s work, Carmen Climent, in the long-lived series Tell me how it happened. The good man thanked him but like a good father he asked them: “And haven’t you seen her in The parade? “, as an extension of the compliments to his daughter. At his side was the piper of the Municipal Band, Juan Jesus Silguero, currently the musician with the longest career in the Bilbao Municipal Band. A few meters further, the double bass player Danylo Betsko greeted and chatted with Carmen Jimenez Y Mariana Chacó. I don’t know if it’s because of the last name municipal or what is the reason but give a nosequé of happiness to see the musicians mingling with the crowd, a detail that is also to be applauded in Pascual-Vilaplana, who took several photographs with the people who requested it and even with the councilor, Javier Segura; The deputy director, Iñaki Urkizu; the timpani of Iñaki Morcillo Y Paco Pineda, oboe of the Band.

Little by little people were arriving, a point of concern in some cases when they asked. “Hey, journalist, do you know when the theaters are going to close?” Asked a distressed voice. Hard to know. For now, it can be said that the Arriaga Theater was open yesterday to María José López Ibáñez, Charo Velasco, Mercedes Vicinay, María Luisa Ortega, Ander Uriarte, Idoia Aranguren, María Teresa Martínez, María Teresa García Barrejón; the sisters Martha Y Alicia Bermejo, Mikel Palacios, Iñaki Mendia, Alama Iturriaga, Alberto Muñoz, Santiago García, Maika Fernández, Antonio López, Rosa López, Juan Carlos García, Emilia Fernández, María Ángeles Bengoetxea, Carmen Alonso, Juan Carlos Agirre, Miren Olarreaga, Maite Olabarria , Sara Olmos and a good number of attendees to the symphonic evening.

The concert began with a soundtrack that takes one to an old border town in the American West. From there the adventure did not stop. After all, the director was heard to say that “music and cinema are undoubtedly two effective balms for sadness and two powerful nutrients for tenderness.”

Of course, before formally abandoning their life as royals, the Sussexes returned to the UK in March to say goodbye and finalize the deals for their long-awaited freedom, which was finally granted by Queen Elizabeth II in April. And since then, they have never seen each other again in person.
