(Was) Back home on the North Bank now back in W.
Had the pleasure of having a chat with three Dutchmen in the Spread after the game last night.

Three friends on a football and rugby watching 10 day break in the UK, they'd managed to time it so they get to see 9 football games, at various levels, sandwiched around a trip to the Millenium Stadium for a Wales rugby international, all in their 10 days.
They'd started at Chelsea for the Cup game against Man City before moving on to watch us last night and then going on to Birmingham tonight.

They are all followers of Feyenoord and mentioned that they've also been waiting some years for a new ground.
They loved the fact that Roots Hall is an old ground full of character where the crowd is close to the pitch and combined with the passion shown by the fans the atmosphere that is created, they thought much better than Stamford Bridge on Sunday...:thumbsup:
Of our players, they were impressed by Barnett and the passion shown by Barrett, they thought Barnett is 'the real deal'.

Having enjoyed a couple of pints in the after match atmosphere of the Spread, something else they like about English football, the atmosphere in our pre and post match pubs, they happily made their way into the night to their hotel sporting newly purchased SUFC scarves and a promise to return.:thumbsup:

Bon voyage chaps, glad you enjoyed last night.:smile:
