Friday and especially Saturday were very wet and windy here. This is the local football pitch at half time on Saturday afternoon. Imortal Albufeira v Messinense, Algarve League Division One.

Albufeira Municipal stadium half time Saturday 11th February


Yes, half time. The football authorities here care not at all concerned about the welfare of players nor that fact the people pay to watch in such conditions.

The only good thing about the afternoon was that we won 1-0. A token crowd of about 50 fans huddled in the deepest recesses of the main stand to escape the driving rain which fell almost constantly until just before the end of the game.
