Another rather mixed performance, although the score is flattering to Caravaca who hardly threatened, and thanks to our forwards (particularly Chando) who were wasteful in front of goal. However....in this league you are going to have many ugly games where the visitors come to defend and are hard to break down. Plus, for a team like Caravaca playing at the NC is like a cup final, so they are super motivated, whilst I think some of Real Murcia's players find it hard to be motivated for such a game.

Ref: Mr. García Castillo. Woeful. Seemed to ignore any late kicks, did not have a criteria for yellow cards for hands, clueless about playing advantage, too far away from play....so no better or worse than all the others we have suffered!
When the referee blew for the start of the game, Caravaca's players all dropped to their knees.....not in prayer for victory, but as a protest as they have not been paid for a few months. After a minute (Real Murcia sportingly just knocked the ball around between thenselves) they got up and proceeded with the game. Evidently the owners and or politicians need to sort this out and are to blame, but you cannot get away from the fact that the bipolar media and their ramming Madrid and Barcelona down peoples throats, and that only that brand of football is valid contributes greatly to this. Low league football in Spain is in a complete mess......but at the RFEF it only seems to matter that Messi scores another couple in another predictable 5 or 6 nil trouncing and that these are seen worldwide. Is it any wonder the people of Caravaca don't go or support their local side?
