CNNFC: Your football views
BURGOS CF, Historic Spanish La Liga Team
Burgos Cf is one of the historical teams of "La Liga".
The sad thing of the Spanish Football league is that tiny teams like Oviedo, or Burgos CF are playing on low categories despite the high number of people who supports this teams.
From Burgos city, one of the coldest one in Spain, Burgos CF is playing and resisting to the pressure of Barça and Real Madrid, teams which are earning the half of the TV media benefits of La liga.
Burgos CF is more than a Football team, is a feeling, is a way of life, is a honor, is history...
When someone is listening about "La liga" just thinks with Barça or Real Madrid, but Spain is more than that, and you should think about teams like Burgos CF.
Burgos is located on the north side of Spain, where the cold winds remove the typical spanish high degrees.
So, if you come to Burgos and you see a match in "El Plantío Stadium" you will feel like in England, but with thousands of people singing the bests words as ever " Aupa Burgos, Vamos Campeón, eres el mejor! Seguiremos Juntos tu y yo de camino a primera división" (translated: Let´s go Burgos, go on, champion, you are the best! We will be walking with you, to the first division road )
¿Do you know that Maradona went to FC Barcelona due to a new FC Barcelona worker-observer who went to Barça from Burgos CF?
¿Do you know that Burgos against Barça ended with 2-2 at Barcelona stadium? ¿Do you know that Burgos CF won to Real Madrid ? Yes... definetly that´s history, but the feelings are inside of the people, and they are singing since that date with the same voice, same feelings, same thinking... and that´s a football team and the essence of a football team.
So, for the next time that your mind thinks about supporting "La Liga" and Barça or Madrid... remember that someone on Cnn suggested you to use on twitter the Hashtag #SupportBurgos and sing the Burgos Footballer song "Aupa Burgos, eres el mejor"
