Yeah... as always, well actually, knowing that the majority of players are valencianistas, in any other place, they could be booed. In Alacant, Elx, Castello, Alcoi or Vilarreal there is a big antivalencianismo. I'm sure that this match would be ignored here in Alacant... even in València, I don't expect a huge attendance.

Actually, it this matches have sense in places with a big national feeling as Catalunya or Euskadi, out of these places, the success of these matches is low.
I know, I know... in fact, I wouldn't have noticed this match if zeifod2 hadn't created this thread. My only wish is that Valencia players don't get injured.

Umm... I was wondering what relationship between Valencia and Barcelona for yellow and orange and both in Aragon before. But I didn't know get the "blue". Thanks for your explanation. I'm reading materials about Spain history. One thing annoying is English name and Spanish name mixed together without notice. For example, Saragossa (local) means Zaragoza (English)? Or there is such a place? And the country was once called "The Great Spain" by the end of 16 century for holding great amount of colony aboard?

What about another team in Valencia? They use blue and red the same as Barca.

Hope you didn't mind my silly questions.
'Saragossa' is Catalan, and 'Zaragoza' Spanish. In English they say the last one because it's more known, I guess.

About the other team of the city, it's Levante, but I don't know if their colors are taken from Barcelona (and they took them from Basle) or it's just a coincidence.
