The Alania Vladikavkas appreciation thread
So much talk about the Moscow clubs..ok, they have the money, the stars and the success..and good crowds for the occasional derby, but...a bit boring.
Apart from the boys from Samara there is another club I really like: Alania!
Its really a pity to see them slide down during the years. Losing them would be a great blow for the top division, with their fans, their passion and their really strong identity. Clubs like Alania help to make the Russian championship a truely Russian thing, not just a Moscow city rivalry.
And, not to forget, they really challenged Spartak M for a while. Not bad for a club from a troubled region in the Caucasus.
