Football Culture Blog, Understanding The World 90 Minutes At A Time.
The posts in From Boothferry To Germany will always focus more on Football fan culture than the sport itself. Posts will cover the actions and manifestations of fans, politics on & off pitch, how culture and expression of identity influence behaviour and of course, our own game-day experiences. You won’t find this blog giving match or player reviews, talking Champions’ League tactics or predicting transfer window movements.
The story of Hull fanatics going to Germany is arbitrary, but gives context. It is the diverse people watching the sport that make it exciting and give it character. Football is a great lens to look through to understand people and 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.
