A tale of two cities

“One of the most intriguing aspects of Spanish football is the way in which the different sets of supporters around the country react to defeat. It’s becoming better known nowadays that Spain is really a loose collective of chalks and cheeses, where you can cross a regional border and suddenly feel as though you are on a different planet – so it comes as no surprise that each football club in the country is un mundo (its own world). The Spanish themselves accept these differences as part of their own cultural mix, and have a fixed set of perspectives on everyone else.” (ESPN)
