Dejected Mallorca players troop off after the disastrous first match of the season. | @DaniMullor Fotofutsal
Real Mallorca made a humiliating start to their centennial season by losing 2-0 away at Alcorcon on Saturday night. It was far from all right on the opening night for the islanders who had no spark, no creativity and were completely devoid of ideas. This was our third successive first game defeat in three seasons, and I'm racking my brains to think of a more inept first game performance that was dished up cold by Real Mallorca in Madrid. It grieves me to report that we were painful to watch, and had no ideas, no game plan, a striker (who wasn't really a striker) who never saw the ball, and worse still, yet another fragile defensive performance.
