What a difference a day makes! A month ago Real Mallorca were looking at the relegation zone now there is talk of them playing First Division football next season. And at the previous home match just 4,000 fans braved the elements but last Sunday there were more than 8,000 supporters at the Son Moix. So what has changed? The Utz Claassen revolution has arrived at Real Mallorca and things are looking up. Claassen told me last week that Real Mallorca probably had one of the best squads in the Second Division after some useful buys in the January transfer window and ofcourse the singing of  Albert Riera, the former Liverpool winger. Anyone who doubted Claassen can now eat their words. He means business and the transformation of Real Mallorca is now underway. Claassen and his board of directors thought that the team would be making a charge to the First Division next season but Mallorca, almost against all odds, are now closing in on the play-off spots. This is fantastic news and has given Real Mallorca  a buzz and the crowds are starting to return. I know of quite number of English-speaking fans, part of our fan club, who are now regulars at the Son Moix.  As Claassen said last week he wants as many English-speaking supporters attending the matches as possible. Real Mallorca are back in business and although promotion to the First Division this season will be difficult the dream is certainly on.
