A rewrite of our post Angry Cops And Belgians, our account of that famous Europa League Knockout clash between Sporting Lokeren and Hull City when the Black & Amber Army came up against the Flanders Law Enforcement. We’re now taking the same match to tell the story of an average FBTG away day. Continue reading
A wall of aggression. A barrier of taxpayers’ money. One single channel holding 2,000 fans in complete anarchy. Glassware continued to rain down indiscriminately. A middle-aged woman behind me shook with fear. Two men burst through the crowd, one supporting the other, blood rolling down his face. It wasn’t a fight because it wasn’t fair.

It’s going to be a long hot summer for From Boothferry To Germany. Most clubs across the world have announced their pre-season plans now and we’ve been researching them all diligently to see which ones work best for us.
Starting in Bochum, who host Brentford FC on the 13th of July, and making a visit to the Deutsche Fußball Bund national museum in Dortmund the next day. Then it’s on to one of our favourite cities, Dresden, at the end of the month. 4 teams are in town, Everton, Werder Bremen, Real Betis and of course SG Dynamo Dresden. All will play each other and we’re going to join the fun on the 29th. And lastly Hull City have announced their pre-season schedule with games against Çaykur Rizespor and Torino FC, once again in Austria. These are ones we are sure not to miss.
Shout out to our friends in Lokeren who play host to Newcastle United. That is a game we cannot make but would love to be there to give one to the Geordies.
Everywhere We Go, Everyone Will Know.
Travelling this weekend back to the Daknamstadion to support our friends at Sporting Lokeren. Game will be played Sunday evening at home to K.V. Oostende with tickets around 18 €. Is there anything I’m missing?
These guys know how to party and I have fond memories of the place. Beer inside the ground and all-standing home support in a working class provincial town; the spirit of the sport.
