First away trip in 2014

Although not the first away trip this season last weekend saw us away for the first time this year. The chance came up for cheap flights to A Coruña and we jumped ad the chance.
Saturday saw us leaving and after a direct flight we drove to Lugo. A couple if drinks something to eat and the day was done.
Sunday came around and the chance to have a look around the city. Lunch was with some cousins who live nearby and it was nearly time for the game.
Although we weren't many away fans there are always some blue and white supporters where ever the team go in Spain.
The match started with an early goal from Aridane and the team threw all there effort into trying for a second. Unfortunately Lugo equalised but in the second half Ayoze scored two more for CDT. With another goal disallowed from Carlos Ruiz it was a great afternoon.
Slow trip home via Madrid but a great weekend away.


Late goal leaves Tenerife with a point

If one of the two teams deserved a win this Saturday on the cold afternoon in the Heliodoro it was CD Tenerife. The local team lead in control of the match and went up early with a goal from new player Juanjo, they had several chances to add to this. But it wasn't to be and a late goal byArzo means a point instead of the three they deserved.

The teamed by Álvaro Cervera showed yet aha ok they have the talent to play well and win. Suso had an early chance to centre but couldn't connect will a colleague. The blue and white player didn't give up and in min. 22 another ball found Juanjo and goal!!!

In the second half CD Tenerife had several shots at goal but unfortunately luck was with the away team and in play from the lads from the north of Spain Arzo scored. This led the island players to double their efforts and in the last minutes Edgar and Ayoze had several chances but when the final whistle sounded a point was the result. One of the best teams who have passed through the Heliodoro this season and although they are struggling right now I would expect to see Zaragoza make the playoff

Played in the Heliodoro Rodríguez López, in front of 7.180 spectators.


Ayoze off to Portugal??

Further rumors abound, it is difficult to know exactly where the young player from Santa Cruz will finally sign up next season but yesterday the thought was Oporto.
A team who are making a name for bringing on youth payers and selling them for high prices.  Sources state that the club will receive 1 million euros now and 15% of the future sale of the forward from Maria Jimenez.
Although it has been clear since December when he didn't renew with CD Tenerife his future has been linked to many clubs both on the Spanish mainland and in the Premier league.
