Lorca 1 Real Murcia 0

Dismal performance from Real Murcia - that said, it is a game they didn't deserve to lose. Lorca's tactics were clear from the start - the lush green grass had been left uncut and unwatered, and it was like playing on treacle, which clearly favoured Lorca and hindered Murcia's passing game. Once they got ahead (through a penalty), there was no end of playacting, particularly from their keeper Goyo who went down feigning injury 4 or 5 times. The ballboys disappeared. However, it has to be said that some of our players looked like they thought we only had to get off the bus to take all 3 points, perhaps a bit of complacency after last week's 6 - 0 drubbing of Lucena. We simply weren't at the races, and hardly troubled Lorca's goal until the last few minutes. Having 3 players sent off didn't help. Abraham for violent conduct a straight red (I didn't see anything), Oscar Sanchez for 2 yellows (the second of which is a foul but no way is a 2nd yellow) - I can't remember the first, think it was for dissent, Kike dismissed in injury time with a second yellow for diving in the box.....a tackle that looked like a penalty from my viewpoint.

Germán - Méndez - Olivares - Casabella
Quintero (Meca 83') - Antonio (Adrián 70') - Sebas - Toño
Aarón - Verdú (Jaime 70')

Real Murcia:
Gago - Gotor - Amaya (Kike 76') - Óscar Sánchez
Aguilera - Richi - Cañadas (Aquino 65') - Albiol (Abraham 40')
Pedro - Chando

1-0 Jaime (pen 70').

Att. around 1,500 of which aprox. 60% were from Murcia.

Referee: Mr. Pino Blanco. After an acceptable first half and first few minutes of the second, decided he was going unnoticed and proceeded to give a disgraceful and unwarranted display of cardwaving madness.

Best we forget this one ASAP. Hope Iñaki Alonso gave them the bollocking they deserved.


  1. Sounds like some dirty tactics got the better of us, bit disappointed in going down to 8 men. is the nueva condomina becoming our fortress? do we still sit in second?


  2. Thanks for the summary - I must start putting money on one of our players getting sent off each game! Interesting to see the crowd estimate - you dont get to see these figures much. Did you go on organised travel with the club? Onward to next week and back on the TV. Is it going to be just the second half again?!?! PETE. PS- have emailed the club 3 times [in English and Spanish] re sending club shop items to the UK. Havent had a reply yet!

  3. Joe - Yes, NC should be a fortfress and we need to make sure we don't drop any more points there. It is soooo important finishing first in this division. Sevilla Atl. only drew at home to Roquetas, so yes, we are second, level on points.

    Pete - I went in the Guiricar and purchased a ticket on the day. Web coverage....I have found that with an upgraded browser (Opera) I have had less trouble and breakup. Club shop....that is a bit disappointing them not even replying. Send me on your email to them and I will see if I can help.

  4. yes pete i have also tried emailing the club about shipping to england, and i too have had no reply.

    and i have google chrome, but can only get the second half on the web at the min.

  5. The official website stream does have a matchday countdown running towards the start of the second half, so it is definitely all they are showing. Thanks Joe, I hope our persistence will wear the club shop down! Guiri-what is your email? PETE
