Owls Trial Bilbao Midfielder

Owls Trial Bilbao Midfielder

Wednesday boss Brian Laws has taken Athletic Bilbao midfielder Igor Angulo on trial at Middlewood Road as he looks to bolster his squad following the departure of Chris Brunt.

The Owls have already been linked with a move for Derby winger Lee Holmes but official confirmation from the club has revealed the Spanish left-sided midfielder has been on trial at S6 this term.

Laws told the official SWFC website: 'Igor has come to train with us this week and has looked sharp so far, we will put him in some game situations to see how he gets on and take it from there.'

Angulo comes with a good background in Spanish football after representing Spain at under-21 level but is not thought to be in Bilbao's plans for the forthcoming Spanish season despite having a year to run on his current deal.

Laws is desperate to add fresh blood to his team after losing the first two league matches and is keen to add before the transfer deadline next week.

Hey there aint many clubs that give their fans as much entertainment off the field as on it lol :-) Carnt say that us owls fans are ever bored, not like our piggy rivals across town pmsl, Striker here striker there....ooohhhh lets buy another striker !!! yawnnnnnn!!!! he he. Anyway on a serious note, I no alot of people may disagree with this but it dont matter if its a player called Holmes from derby or Rasiak, what matters is that the player or players in question come to Hillsborough with a sole desire to play for the club with 100% commitment and in respect that same respect should be repaid back to that player game in game out. We gotta trust Laws judgement. UP THE OWLS !!!!

think we are all agreed on that, which is why I strongly believe that we should look at the younger players first, those already on the books

He is more likely to sign as he does not know what a "cretin" is, what "scum" means or just how venomous a "bitch" can be.

it'l be a gamble, but credit to Laws, he has got him in for a trial and not just seen a clip on youtube.

Is this the fella that they went to watch in Europe? Don't know anything about him. Could be good, could be bad. At least the pressure wouldn't be on him straight away (Like Jeffers) as we can play Small and Johnson for a while. Knowing our luck we'll agree a fee and then there'll be some wages issue (CoughSodjecough)

He might not speaka de lingo but im sure his agent knows how many euro's there are to the pound. The fans (members) actually own the club in Bilbao, now there's a novel idea. More useless trivia:- If your not from the Basque region, you have no chance of playing for them. There is a waiting list for season tickets. Real Sociadad in San Sabastian are there biggest rivals (Darko plays for them) Bilbao only stayed up by the skin of their teeth last season. They are in the process of building a new stadium (Next to the old one) right in the centre of the city. Bilbao is a steel town, as is the Basque region. However, their mills are still open and booming. A pint of Beer is anything from €3 to €5. Just trying to make the lad feel at home. Lol
