Football Culture Blog, Understanding The World 90 Minutes At A Time.
Occasionally comical, occasionally analytical, always reliable, From Boothferry To Germany focuses more on Football fan culture than on the sport itself. Posts explore fan customs and traditions, how culture, economics, politics and history influence fan behaviour and of course, our own game-day experiences. You won’t find this blog giving player reviews, talking Champions’ League tactics or predicting transfer window movements.
The story of Hull fanatics going to Germany is arbitrary, but gives context. The diverse people watching the sport make it exciting and give it character. Football is a great lens to look through to understand people. Being a foreigner at games is a fast-track to learning about the natives. We aim to capture that essence in writing. We hope everybody involved in the sport from club management down to pub-team goalkeeper finds From Boothferry To Germany engaging, instructive, and inspiring enough to help question the way they look at the Beautiful Game and their involvement in it.
