There is no doubt that in number our support has grown considerably over the last few years - and again this season the underlying trend is towards inconditional, even though we have suffered 2 relegations in 3 seasons. I know that the elder amongst the fans say that in the 80's, before Madrid and Barcelona monopolized media coverage, that Murcia had big attendences at home....but have we ever travelled in such number as now? 3,000 odd at the Bernabeu is normal.....but over 800 at Lorca, in a segunda B match? That is almost double those who attended our last visit there some 3 or 4 seasons ago in Segunda. This is good....there is real feeling for the club, and despite the fact that I saw two numpties yesterday with their Real Madrid tracksuits, you can tell the majority disapprove - and let them know about it.
The updated table is below.....I hope we can cut out the inconsistency and the bit of complacency. I'm not making stupid demands like our local rag "La Verdad" who insist that Real Murcia need to win seven nil every week in this division - that just shows their ignorance of just how competitive a league segunda B is. Just that we concentrate and take nothing for granted.
