Phil Ball in Spain

Usually, when you have been through a period of suffering, the return to normality enables you to see life in a different way. Everything seems interesting again, the birdsong seems sweeter and even the in-laws seem wonderful somehow. In footballing terms, a decent spell in the Second Division means that when you return to the top flight, the sensations are giddy ones, and the visit of teams like Real Madrid lends the weekend a sort of intangible richness, like that tingly feeling you had as a kid, just before Christmas Day.
