TRUE BLUE STORIESWHY BLUE
My first visit at Maine Road was after the Trafford Rangers-Feyenoord Champions League match. We went to get a tour aroud the stadium. The man at the reception told us that we could walk around by ourselves but not on the pitch. After being robbed for everything we wanted to do or see at the 'other' stadium this was a pleasant surprise. The atmosphere at Maine Road felt much better than what we expierenced earlier that day. We were very impressed and took lots of pictures while we walked around. Made a fews jokes about the away stand how they would feel in some weather conditions. And who we would like to see there. When we left to see the Fan Store the man from the reception called us back and gave us a few magazines about MCFC. For free!!! We realy had to pinch each other to see if all of this was for real. This was the area where people love their club and are proud of it. It still existed!!! We came to the conclusion that what happened earlier that day was just being in the wrong place at the wrong time. From that moment we considered 'that' place as the mosque.
Since that day MCFC has a very special place in my football heart. Of course you guys are a much more bigger fans of the guys in Blue than I am. But I still consider myself a City fan. I have much respect for a club that went through a lot of trouble but still have a higher attendence than many Dutch Premier League teams. If you look the word 'faithful' up in the English dictionary you'll see a picture of a City fan. In the Dutch version it would be a Feyenoord fan, that's for sure.
What City means for all of you is Feyenoord Rotterdam for me. I think we have a lot of things in common. We both hate another team with all we've got. Because of simular reasons. The other team that I mean is @j@ks from Sh*t City. They also have won a 'few' prizes the last couple of years. And that attracts a lot of glorybees. People that have never been in Sh*t City act like they are @j@ks themselves etc etc etc. Sounds familiar? Anyway, my team is doing well at the moment, they're top of the league and that sounds familiar again I quess.
All I wanted to say is that I realy enjoy reading you stories and nicknames. With this newsletter, a few internetpages and ceefax I keep myself up to date about MCFC.
Wish all of you a quick journey back into Premier League!!!!.
