What a brilliant away day! Although Real only scored late into the game, they always looked in control of the situation. All 3 goals were high class, Kike Garcia with the first after a great cross by Isaac....a towering, powerful header, a real centre forward's goal...the kind of goal that is ever more rare in football these days. Kike was outstanding from the moment he came on....and if he concentrates and is given time, patience and minutes....we could have a real player on our hands. He cooly finished off a great move for the third. Albiol majestically executed a free kick....right in the top corner, for the second. Special mention to Alberto, who pulled off an incredible double save at point blank range. Since Girona he seems to be blessed....ying and yang?

Ref: Mr. Gil Coscollá....was OK, but the game was easy to referee.
Att....dunno....maybe 600....200 odd from Murcia.
On arrival at Roquetas, we went into the ground, and, going up the stairs, the smell of bacon and sausages invaded our noses.....a proper bar, real beer, and, as is typical in Andalucia, a "tapa" with yer beer ("chistorra" or bacon in fresh bread). Lovely. At halftime, back to the bar, and this time they had prepared "migas" to acompany the cold cerveza. Yum. This is what top level football is missing....it was friendly, local, reasonable and original, a very pleasant surprise, the like of which I have not seen in a football ground in years.....and which no doubt helps a club like Roquetas to survive with the income it creates. I'm sure there is a do-good quango or health and safety no fun spoilsport out there waiting to pounce on them. After the game.....down into town to the beach area....Pescado frito, Paella, Gintonic, lots of laughs....and all sat outside in just a tee-shirt. Just a perfect day.
Thanks to all concerned.....Mr. Black, Masacra, Sr. Garrido, Paco Isterici, Tarantino, and most of all to the beautiful brunette with the massive gravity defying jugs who seemed to follow us around all day!
