No TV today....

Looks like Lorca Atletico have priced themselves out of TV coverage, and therefore the match will not be available via the Real Murcia website.

I am confused by Lorca.....this team "Atletico" I am told purchased Sangonaera's place in segunda B, this after the previous Lorca ¿Deportiva? folded, just like their predecessor. So this is the 3rd? 4th? version of a Lorca side in the last 20 years. Their high point was a few years ago, whilst in Segunda, they flirted with promotion. I can remember how their results and goals were greeted with some pleasure at the old Condomina - this all changed when they visited us. I have bleeted on about how Spanish fans are Madrid and Barsa at heart, but will attach themselves to their local side only if they are doing well. Classic example. Over 1000 Lorca fans came, were welcomed....until they insisted on insulting chants and general misbehaviour. The following season Real Murcia visited Lorca and gained a undeserved last minute draw.....and we fans were pelted with anything they could throw at us. End of the season they were relegated.....and then went out of business, until this version muscled their way into Segunda B. As per our amigos in Cartagena, no doubt this edition will inherit the other 3 attempt's history. This is why they appear as "Lorca Frankenstein" on my league table.....

Insults, bottles, stones......Why on earth am I heading to Lorca this afternoon? Why don't I stay home after a week away in the cold of Canada and London, and the boredom of Luton Airport for hours 2 mornings running thanks to the air traffic controllers?

REAL MURCIA....YOU'LL NEVER WALK ALONE!
