Greetings from the island of Madeira, an 8 night holiday for me after recuperating from eye surgery and to escape the UK winter. Maritimo v Guimares on Saturday followed by Nacional v Porto B on Sunday. Scout some players and meet up with Ronaldo`s mum to get him at the Mol for next season if we go up... :lol:

Maritimo..ask them if they remember King John at centre half for them?
When they won the second division in 1982.

Thanks, Cannock, I always had Big John as a striker. You learn something every day.

John Richards was a striker, and he was one of the very best.
But after a season, they needed a centre half, and being firstly intelligent and surprisingly one of the tallest, he offered to play at the back...and thus they won the league

Maritimo 3 Guimares 2.

Great game of fast passing and movement for 94 mins. A joy to watch. The home winger Valente looks a player.

Nacional v Porto B......postponed, thick fog. Why they built a stadium up at 600m God knows. No buses for a Sunday 11-15 kick off, so I wasted 30Euro in taxis there and back. . Argh.

Flight home delayed by three to four hours. Stormy weather in Funchal. Argh..argh...Argh...!!!!

Cheap as chips.

Heres Boavista who finished 8th in the Portuguese top division offering season tickets for twenty five quid.
Yes 25 quid.

Boavista get very low attendances so I can understand them wanting to see more fans at home games but even so, that price is unreal and will get snapped up by many locals there for sure. The way forward for some clubs.

Personally, I'm surprised clubs don't have cheap season tickets. My "hometown" club of Detroit City allow all kids in for free and season tickets (about 10-15 matches a year) are $60-75 each year. They average around 6,000 per home game which is very good for a club at their level, but they're building sustainability because I see a ton of kids at the games and recognize so many faces year to year due to being cheap and accessible. They won't have to worry about attendance year to year because they do such a good job of grooming the next generation of fans.
