From the publisher:
The cover of Staantribune # 26 features Brazilian Ronaldo, who settled in Eindhoven 25 years ago. Reason for us to put Ronaldo, O Fenômeno, on the cover of this edition.
This edition also contains an extensive article about Leeds United, the fallen English top club that celebrates its centenary on October 17. The Whites are not at the highest level this season for the fifteenth year in a row.
Furthermore, a pre-publication of the book Lost professional clubs, connected by the demise , which will be published this autumn under the banner of Staantribune. Editor Martijn Schwillens delved into the history of the seven professional clubs that have disappeared from Dutch professional football since 1991 due to closure or bankruptcy: SVV, FC Wageningen, VC Vlissingen / VCV Zeeland, Haarlem, RBC, Veendam and AGOVV.
We also have reports on subbuteo (who didn't play it in the eighties?), The Ajax from São Paulo, the Mining Stadium of Beringen and Fosa Juniors from Madagascar. Arthur Numan talks about his time with Rangers, one of Feyenoord's upcoming opponents in the Europa League. And we delved into the history of the Derby della Capitale between AS Roma and Lazio.
Regular features such as De Voetbalstad (this time about Haarlem), The Portrait (NAC legend Bob Latchford) and Frank Heinen's column are of course also included in Stand # 26.
Note from Stanchion:
This publication is entirely in Dutch, with no English translation available. However, there are more than enough photos to satisfy any non-Dutch speaker!
