    First three games away against fairly good opponents and then at home against Barça.
    I'd say any point taken is a win.

    Great breakdown of the league, excited to see how you can turn this club around and hopefully add another team into the mix of LaLiga contenders.

    Good preview of La Liga, I agree with it all really, I wonder how close the predictions will be to how it ends, it is a tough start for you though, really want to see you stop Barca when that games comes, Hate that club!

    Considering the pre-season, you can only be right in this.

    If we are supposed to fight for Europe, we better start winning points in these games before we face Barcelona.

    Well... I just don't see it in the short term, to be honest. I'd be happy if we're able to be fighting for an UEL spot.

    Thank you! Hate Barça?! Why? I think you must really think about it twice... :D :p

    4 out of 2, on par with the big three: good start

    A Fantastic start to the season with four points out of six it shows the quality of the team especially that point against Villarreal who will be up there

    Very good start in not only getting the wins but also starting to find an identity so early in the season.

    Great start to the season. Doing a great job with controlling the ball both games it looks like.

    A preseason to tick off and to learn from. Unfortunate loss against Hertha. But nothing to be ashamed of ;) Does happen to the best.
    Afterwards a solid start into the season. 4 points out of 2 away games is a promising start after this preseason. Seems like Koldo made the right changes and adjustments.

    Yes, I'm happy with it. Villarreal are a very strong rival and despite they were superior, we got a good result. Much better against Leganés in every sense. I'm happy with this first 2 games.

    This is the kind of results we must have to try to fight for European spots. I'm still unsure we can do it (a lot to be played yet) as it was tough to draw against Villarreal, who are direct rivals... we'll see how it progresses.

    This is what I believe it's the most important. Surely a lot of things to improve, but Zurutuza and Illarramendi give stability to midfield and Januzaj and Oyarzábal seem powerful in attack. I hope to find the best out of Willian José, so far the biggest disappointment.

    Yes, we want that possession football becomes our trademark. I hope we can continue this way in the next games.

    Yes, we fixed some aspects after the pre-season and they seem to work. I wish we can extend it in the future.

    Good start to the season, a bit worrying to concede 3 to Eibar though. I must say these graphics are looking clean, very good job, lots of work done to get the table and results posted for each fixture too. :)

    Frustrating to draw in a derby you should have won by the sounds of it. A derby to. Remember for the fans but the players must move on and not let the mistakes happen again. Still without a loss after three games but will need to start getting wins instead of draws to keep the pace.

    Thought about doing a La Liga CM because of the new license stuff but never got round to it, good luck man!

    Unfortunate as these games are the ones who should be won...Giving up the lead 3 times is something to remember. Concentration and focus is the key then once you get the lead. So a shootout for the fans but Koldo can't be happy with this point.

    A solid start I think a point away from home for a team like Sociedad is always a good result and Eibar seem to have made a positive start as well

    Well, Eibar isn't a newly promoted team and has had good seasons in LaLiga recently. However, it's true that we can't take the lead 3 times and waste it as we did.

    Thank you! Well... after some time using Excel, it doesn't take that much time. :)

    That's the word: frustrating. I agree that we should improve the results, but next match it's Barcelona....

    Exactly... we should have controlled the game after every goal, but we were unable to avoid the come and go kind of game. A lesson to learn.

    Yes, Eibar also had good results. Thinking positively, an away draw isn't a bad result.

    Expected. I honestly say, you have three points more than I anticipated. The worst is over and you're only down on goal diff from where I expect you'd be (which is: top half of the table).

    Always going to take something special to beat one of the top 3. Not a bad start though. I agree that top 10 is still very attainable.

    Sorry if I missed it, but are you doing the Basque transfer policy?

    Wow a humbling defeat at home shame really but Barcelona are a very strong side and not many teams will take points from them

    It's not going bad... Except for Barcelona, who are in a different level, the team is playing according to the plan. However, we truly fail to create chances and this is a problem. Let's see how it develops and I wish we can be in the top half, as you say.

    It should be... The UCL is out of reach, but hopefully we can fight for being 6th or 7th in the best of the cases. Still I honestly think there are lots of teams better than us after the top-3 as Valencia, Sevilla, Betis or Villarreal. But I think we should be able to compete against the rest.

    No. Real Sociedad don't do it. They have lots of homegrown players, but they also have foreign players and Spanish players from other regions. Still I'll try to use the academy as much as I can. It's a must anyway, as the economic power isn't high.

    Too strong... their passing football and the efficiency in attack was really hard to stop, if not impossible at moments. Still the game went wrong since the first second.
