Morning dawns slowly over the main road through a quaint residential neighbourhood. A set of waste disposal men get to work keeping Spain clean as a young lady zips past on her morning jog. But while the city begins to wake, all around there are signs that someone has been busy during the night.
Just for fun
Ultras Aufkleber of the Week – Eintracht Frankfurt
Fresh off the back of their Europa League triumph. I guess we should congratulate the people of Germany’s financial capital, but we actually don’t like their club so much. The city we live in is now covered in these stickers.
Ultras Aufkleber of the Week – Wydad Casablanca
One half of the most Football mad city in Africa. In Casablanca, you are either red or green, but you cannot mix the two. On our recent visit to Valencia, we spotted a lamppost outside La Mestalla that had been entirely taken over by Wydad Casablanca.
From Boothferry To Valencia
A bit of sickness this week put delay to this upload, but we have finally sifted through the photos of our latest trip to pick out the best for this blog post. Last weekend we got on the train to the Autonomous Community of Valencia for some La Liga groundhopping action.
Ultras Aufkleber of the Week – Brisbane Roar
Stuck a bit out of my reach, hence the awkward angle. Our next post will cover The Roar of Queensland and the surprisingly exotic history behind one of the A-League’s most decorated franchises. Perhaps not the most creative of designs, but the quality of A-League support is certainly underappreciated internationally even if the league struggles with consistent attendance figuers.
Ultras Aufkleber of the Week – Lok Leipzig
A difficult club for many to like but an impossible club to ignore, 1. FC Lokomotive Leipzig is one of 2 highly-charged clubs from Leipzig in Saxony with ultras and fanatics known for their connections to far right politics. This puts them at complete odds to the far left “Diablos” ultras of BSG Chemie Leipzig in one of the most fascinating German cities in the context of Football fan culture.
Ultras Aufkleber of the Week – Borussia Mönchengladbach
Perennial overachievers in the Bundesliga, Borussia Mönchengladbach are an easy-to-like side for foreign enthusiasts of German Football but fans get their fare share of animosity within the country. Gladbach ultras share a friendship with Union Berlin but are otherwise pretty much hated universally from the big clubs in the league. This design was seen in Spain.
From Boothferry To Catalonia
Hello darkness my old friend….. Autumn has most definitely arrived now, but that just makes finishing a match under floodlights all the more charming. We’ve been on the road again with more groundhopping with a camera with 2 matches attended in 2 days with great attendances, great atmospheres, great prices but a bit of a lack of goals in the consistently contentious comunidad of Catalonia.
