Spain is a great, very colourful, massive, Madrid and Barcelona are excellent places to visit.
On the downside, the way the Spanish fans treated our Black Players during a friendly one November night in 2004 is unforgivable. Lets not forget Lewis Hamilton treatment in Barcelona.
Spanish Football 1997 - 2008, a glorious era.
