Making beds

Funny title for a football post more usual for housekeeping or housewives. There is a saying in Spain that players can make a bed for their coach.(Trying to get him sacked) I am not sure if that is what happened yesterday but there was talk in the stands in Leganes that this is what the players were doing. It was a terrible game and was televised and the highlights can be seen here. I don't really want to talk any more about the match itself.

One of the things I love about following CDT is the friendships I have made. People I would never have met without the team. Leaving the hotel in the company of four lads from the Irish Clan the newest formed CDT fan Club, walking along the road being joined but a Brit from Armada Sur. A little further down the road we were joined by Paccuco from Barcelona and when we reached the grounds there were two more from Madrid itself and a couple from the UK. Football is not just hooligans it is great people who travel out of their way to see their team.

The lads from the Irish Clan Tenerife

The fans me included were very down after the game and we left the grounds with the plan to go strainght to the airport to wait for our flight when a message came in on the phone saying why don't we have lunch. This was the best part of the day and we spent the time with Antonio and the three other lads from the Irish Clan talking about CDT and various other clubs, the island and other away games we had been at. Four nicer lads I haven't met and I look forward to seeing them on other trips. They are above us in Herradura by the big screen and I think they will grow as a fan club as they have some great ideas.
