Default Deportivo & Turkey

What is the relationship between depor and turkey? I always notice turkish flags with the ultras and even a big turkish banner sometimes.

Why are we nicknamed "el turco"?

The nickname Turcos (The Turks) was originally used as an insult by rival Celta Vigo fans. The name supposedly dates from early in the club's history when, at least in the Spanish thinking of the day, a Turk was equivalent to a pirate. This has ancient history dating back hundreds of years to Ottoman Turkish pirates patrolled the seas of the Mediterranean and terrorized Spanish coastal cities. Whatever its strange origins the nickname has been adopted as a badge of pride by the club's supporters and Turkish flags can regularly be seen in the stadium.

Did we not have a right up about this somewhere or was it lost when the DB crashed last summer?

I think you're "write" Feli

I presume it was lost because I had a look here first. I thought we even had something written up on the main pages (as opposed to here at the forum) but if we do, it's well hidden

The threads that got lost, was those that had been created the last months. If we had such a thread, that's an old thread and should be alive somewhere in the forum.
