Zaandam, Holland
Hi all,
I'm 30 odd posts in already but I didn't introduce myself when I joined which was rude so here goes.

From the age of 2 until nearly 7 my family lived in The Hague so, when we came back to live in Saarfend, I knew nothing of english football. A school friend showed me book that had pictures of all 92 teams kits. I liked QPR's kit so I became a fan. That was the season they won the league cup as a third division side. I saw my first Southend game in 1968 under floodlights and was hooked forever !
After a lot of years supporting The Shrimpers home and away I was introduced to the lads forming a new club called SUFCSC. I spent many years pretending to be a keeper (I fooled nobody) and made many life long friends despite the abuse.
I once had a fish, living in FatGrandad's tropical tank called Anton (Otulakowski). I'm sure he murdered it.
I have lived i Holland now for 26 years. I pop over when poss to watch games but I've got used to lying on the couch watching on ifollow.
I still dream of us winning the Champions League (we won the European Cup in Waddingtons table soccer).
Take care all Shrimpers. Hugs & Kisses, Sammy
