Goalkeeper Ricardo- Next Betis game Betis v Huelva, 1st game of La Liga season 2008-2009, GK Ricardo did not play!

Next Real Betis game, with goalkeeper Ricardo. They play this Sunday at home against Huelva in the first game of the La Liga season 2008-2009. We'll see if he stays as 1st choice goalkeeper. He had been 2nd choice in the end of the last season. If he is, I think he might transfer out.

Rafael Sobis not available for this game against Recreativo de Huelva because of a knee problem. Edu, José Mari and Odonkor not available either. Mark González (former Liverpool) is in doubt.

August 30, 2008- Betis coach, Paco Chaparro called up the players:
Ricardo, Casto, Damiá, Lima, Rivas, Rivera, Mehmet Aurelio, Ilic, Babic, Melli, Arzu, Capi, Pavone, Fernando Vega, Juanito, Juande, Emana, Xisco y Nelson.

I saw on GolTV "Ole, La liga" the highlights show and guess what? GK Ricardo did not play!

Betis' next games:
Liga Betis-Recreativo 1ª jor
Liga Getafe-Betis 2ª jor
Liga Betis-Sevilla 3ª jor

Liga Betis-R. Madrid 5ª jor

Betis in the La Liga Table:


Real Betis signed Nelson, right-back from Benfica. Six millon euros signed for the next 5 seasons. Tomorrow Wednesday, August 27, 2008, Portuguese Nelson will go through the medical tests.

Probably Mexican forward- Nery Castillo. Castillo arrived in Sevilla today (August 26, 2008) to be ready to take the medical tests, IN CASE Real Betis and Shakhtar Donetsk reach an agreement TONIGHT. Source: Radio oficial del club verdiblanco. (89.6 FM)

Chaparro, said to Mexican newspaper 'Excelsior' August 27, 2008 that "If he wants to earn a place in this team and stay, he'll have to give everything. Nery has a good enough curriculum because since he was 16 or 17 years old, he's been playing in important teams, he's a figure in México; in Europe he still needs something, in Ukraine and England he had his problems, but we hope that here in Spain he's capable of giving us what he has."

Brasilian Rafael Sobis wants to stay- Sobis arrived at Manuel Ruiz de Lopera. He said "I am staying for sure. I came to show the bronze medal, 2008 Beijing Olympics. From my mouth you never heard anything. Everything that has been said about me is a lie. My agent only replied to Chaparro. I am happy here. I don't have to prove anything to anyone, just to me. I don't have to talk to anyone, only to put on the training kit and train. Chaparro has told me a lot of things but I limited myself to just listening. I only think of succeeding and play for Betis," said Sobias on 'La Onda Verde', Radio Betis (89.6 FM).
