From the publisher:
Standing stand number 34 is another varied edition, with a focus on the fiftieth anniversary of FC Groningen. Journalist Robert Visscher wrote a personal story about his feeling for the FC. About the Oosterpark Stadium, flying tackles, The Smoke Magician, away days & cup fever.
In addition, we spoke to Bali United player Melvin Platje about his luxurious life on the Indonesian island, former Fortuna Sittard players Regilio Simons and Kevin Hofland and several Fortunes about the legendary season 1998-1999 and Niels Kokmeijer, the former player of Go Ahead Eagles. player who once suffered a horrific leg fracture, but is now a major player in bathrobes.
Of course we also have various reports. For example, Joris van de Wier went to Scourie FC, the most beautifully located club in Scotland, we took a long walk through the football city of Rotterdam, after reading this edition you will know all about the rivalry between 1. FC Kaiserslautern and SV Waldhof Mannheim and about the Ecuadorian club Aucas, founded by Dutchman Marius Hulswit. Julian Droog wrote a truly magnificent portrait of Hugo 'Komt dat schóóóóóóóóót' Walker, for which he spoke to Kees Jansma and Frank Snoeks, among others.
In addition, we have the usual columns such as the column by Frank Heinen, who also created a portrait of the atypical world football player Gaizka Mendieta, The Goal (about the world goal of Karel Poborský during the European Championship 1996), The Photo , in which the European Cup II final between Manchester United and FC Barcelona in 1991 is central, and Gerald Vanenburg's Ajax shirt
All this interspersed with beautiful images by master photographers Marco Magielse, Dirk-Jan van Dijk and Stuart Roy Clarke, who takes us to the Scotland of the 1990s.
And of course with Joop van Maurik's monologue. Because Joop belongs to Standing Stand, even without a pub.
