Yep...I know we were knocked out by a crooked ref and the galacticos. But I just put Sky Sports on, expecting to see Almeria´s "Estadio del Mediterraneo" full to the rafters for their clash with Deportivo. I think it's the first time they have ever had the chance to reach the semis......and my complete surprise...it was EMPTY! Not half full....almost no-one had bothered to go!
Hang on a minute.....I blinked, pinched myself....and looked again. The echoes of the players shouts, the plastic unoccupied seats on all sides....What is it with the Spanish and cup competitions? Can anyone explain?
I just don't get it. A midweek cup time, that's what gets me going. Staying at home just isn't an option. Spain is different, as they say.
