After a week when the UK news programmes have been all about the country’s new prime minister Liz Truss – Truss, according to an online dictionary, means (1) a surgical appliance worn to support a hernia or (2) a framework made in its smallest form from two short planks ! – Real Mallorca head to the Spanish capital where they’ll play Real Madrid in the intimidating Santiago Bernabeu on Sunday at 2pm. Over the (almost) 40 years I’ve been a season ticket holder, I could count the times we’ve actually won or come away with a point in the Bernabeu on one hand and Sunday’s game isn’t one I’m looking forward to. The odds are firmly stacked against us and I just hope the final scoreline is better than the 6-1 drubbing we suffered last season.
