Dammed island

Although it was 20 years ago, Real Madrid fans never forget the two leagues they lost here. Both leagues were then won by FC Barcelona which hurts even more. Although the match was played against their second team last Sunday there was still that uncomfortable feeling.
The fans turned out in force for a match which was the game of the season. 13.400 fans turned out to see their team win, and win they did. In a game which for me was the best the team have played this season. They controlled the field and never at any moment looked inferior to Castilla. This could be the start of the run up to the playffs. The next game is at home against La Roda this Sunday at 12.00.
