Things are changing at Real Mallorca and for the better. It was a great performance on Saturday night in awful conditions and the 3-0 victory means that the team can start building the foundations of something special both on and off the pitch. I went to the game with a group of people from our English speaking supporters club as guests of the Chairman, Utz Claassen, who was very impressed with the support the club is receiving from the British expat community on the island. Claassen said that the club needed as much support as possible if Mallorca is to continue to move up the Second Division table. But there is now a certain buzz around the club. There have been a series of appointments and even some of the players bought in the winter transfer window appear to be doing their bit. Now, obviously it is early days and the euphoria could end again on Saturday when Mallorca travel to Barcelona but we are moving forward. I was pleasantly surprised to see that a number of expats are now going to watch Real Mallorca on a regular basis partly because of our Supporters Club. The conditions on Saturday were terrible but it did help the team. The gate was just 4,500 and as the rain started to fall supporters were told that they could move across to the voted area. This meant that the total crowd was sitting in the same area and the atmosphere, obviously helped by the goals, was notably better. Things are changing and changing for the better!
