Bro, don't get me wrong. Robinho is my favorite soccer player, and I think Casillas is the best GK in the world.

But ...

The Spanish Civil War and Fascism was a very big deal that continues to influence Spain even to this day, La Liga is not excluded from the influence.



Quote:
The Spanish Civil War was a major conflict in Spain that started after an attempted coup d'état committed by parts of the army against the government of the Second Spanish Republic. The Civil War devastated Spain from July 17, 1936 to April 1, 1939, ending with the victory of the rebels and the founding of a dictatorship led by the Nationalist General Francisco Franco. The supporters of the Republic, or Republicans (republicanos), gained the support of the Soviet Union and Mexico; while the followers of the Rebellion, also called Nationalists (nacionales), received the support of the major European Axis powers of Italy and Germany. The United States remained officially neutral, but sold airplanes to the Republic and gasoline to the Francisco Franco regime.

Wikipedia link:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spanish_civil_war
Please feel free to explore the link and have a clear idea why it remains such a big deal.

Catalan is a different language from Castilian Spanish, as Bangla is different from Urdu, with all the cultural differences that follow. The multicultural elements of Republican Spain, which included other nationalities such as the Basque, had little trouble getting along with one another until the Spanish Republic and its Democratic institutions were brutally destroyed by Franco's Fascists and their Nazi allies, and Castillian dominance was enforced over all. During which time, Real Madrid was directly sponsored by Franco. Castilians who secretly supported democracy and multiculturalism, supported Atletico, their Basque allies supported Bilbao, Andalucians Sevilla, and Catalans supported Barcelona. Imagine if the Pakistani generals won in 1971 and brutally forced Urdu and Punjabi culture on us, sponsored Rohmotgonj Muslim Friends Society with money and power, and then assess Catalan and Basque sentiments and their relationship with Real Madrid and other "Real" outfits in La Liga.

Here's a couple of links you may wish to explore: -

Thanks SNR bhaiya for clearing up that whole issue...........
Anyways I don't think that those political issues should have an influence on what team you support in today's time. Don't support Barcelona just because you agree with their Catalan pride. And don't stop supporting Real Madrid just because Franco used to support them. Judge them on their game not on everything else.

Puerta laid to rest
Afp, Seville

Thousands of football fans gathered at Sevilla's stadium Wednesday to pay their last respects to defender Antonio Puerta, who died three days after suffering a heart attack during the club's opening match of the Spanish league on Saturday.

The body of the 22-year-old, who made his national team debut last season, was moved to the Sanchez Pizjuan stadium from the hospital where he died on Tuesday as supporters chanted: "Puerta, friend, Seville is with you".

Puerta was then cremated at a cemetery in Seville in southwestern Spain at 2pm (1200 GMT), reporters said at the scene.

Fans from both Sevilla and its cross-town rivals Real Betis left football scarves, candles and dozens of flower arrangements at the stadium while long lines formed to file past the player's coffin, which was draped in Sevilla's centenary flag.

At the coffin's side were the recent trophies which Puerta helped the club win, including last season's UEFA Cup.

Also mourning in Seville were Real Madrid chairman Ramon Calderon, who headed the club's delegation to Wednesday's ceremony alongside sporting director Pedja Mijatovic and top stars Raul and Guti.

Others present from the league champions were former Seville stars Sergio Ramos, Javier Saviola and Brazilian Julio Baptista.

The Sevilla squad went directly to the stadium after rushing back from Athens where they had been set to play a Champions League return leg against AEK Athens on Tuesday night.

UEFA postponed the encounter.

Accompanied by Sevilla president Jose Maria del Nido and the club's coach Juande Ramos, the squad was greeted with applause on their arrival by some 20,000 supporters with cries of "Sevilla! Sevilla! Sevilla!".

The player's family, including his girlfirend Mar, who is seven months pregnant, held a silent vigil by the coffin.

The Champions League match has now been scheduled for Monday although the UEFA Cup champions' Super Cup match against Champions League winners AC Milan, scheduled for Friday, has been maintained.

Spain's sports newspapers also paid homage to Puerta.

"Antonio Puerta, the injustice of dying at the age of 22. Why?" wrote sports daily Marca in its headline while daily newspaper La Razon said: "The heart of football has stopped."

In an editorial, top-selling daily newspaper El Pais said Puerta's death had touched the public and "raised questions about the demands of professional sports."

Sevilla has scheduled four "high level" matches in just nine days, it said.

Puerta, who reportedly sparked interest from English Premiership sides Arsenal and Manchester United earlier this year, collapsed after half an hour of Sevilla's 4-1 win over Getafe.

He was able to walk to the dressing rooms where he collapsed a second time before being taken to hospital where he remained hooked up to a life support machine until he died.

Clubs continued to express their bewilderment, meanwhile, at what had happened.

Angel Torres, chairman of last weekend's rivals Getafe, said Puerta's death "is a blow for football and for sport," adding the pain of the affair was made all the harder as his own club was playing Sevilla when the player collapsed.

Torres spoke of the "immense grief" felt by Spain's sporting community and offered condolences to Puerta's family.

Spanish media quoted Liverpool's Spanish star Fernando Torres as saying on his website that: "Puerta's death leaves a vacuum which is impossible to fill. May he rest in peace." source

I was watching the game live when he collapsed on GOLTV. Very sad. He walked up and went inside only to have another cardiac arrest later..
