After Sunday's game, and back in Murcia at the supporters club bar, Paco Sutil had the temerity to say exactly what he thought. "I hope that Murcia go up to Primera, and that Cartagena are relegated to Segunda B", he said. In the 92nd minute he cheekily mucked around with the ball, goading his opponents while wasting a few seconds. "If I laughed at them, it was on your behalf" he said to the fans.
These comments have really upset the delicate flowers down in Cartagena. Yes, those who helped Real Murcia down to segunda B 2 seasons ago by losing 0 - 4 to Albacete in their last game and celebrated the fact as if they had won the world cup. The same people who spend the whole game insulting, spitting, and throwing objects at us from the upper tier. The same who bring a coffin to the game with Real's crest on it. Real captain Oscar Sanchez had to issue an apology, and he did this very elegantly, just in case anyone was offended. Fair enough. But why should he do so? Is what Sutil said going to make our visits to Cartagena any more unsafe than they already are? Personally I think not. And have Cartagena ever apologised for throwing a game that help get Murcia relegated? Of course not.
Another case of speaking the truth and saying what you feel being valued below a more politically correct lie. I can see that when you have Sutil on your side it's great, but i'm sure he's dead annoying as an opponent. Like a more talented Robbie Savage.
