Real Mallorca came from being two goals behind to pull off an impressive 2-2 draw away at Mirandes in the Castile/Leon region of Spain. Our island football team don’t half put their fans through the wringer (we used to call it a mangle in Scotland), none more so than up in Miranda De Ebro on Saturday night. Whoever said football’s a funny old game wasn’t kidding. That best known of all football phrases summed up this game (especially in the second half) when the Palma side produced the mother of all comebacks to salvage a point in a game they certainly didn’t look likely to get anything from at the break. We looked dead and buried as the referee blew for half time but two inspired substitutions from “Chapi” Ferrer in the second half turned the match on its head.
