From the publisher:
Stand number 35 is partly dedicated to the Italian Sampdoria. The club from Genoa is 75 years old and exactly thirty years ago won the first and so far only scudetto in history.
We interviewed journalist Jurriaan van Wessem about his love for 'the Girl'. And we bring you a top 5 players from Samp , beautiful photos of Stadio Luigi Ferraris and iconic Sampdoria shirts. We also dissect a goal of our cover hero Ruud Gullit in the service of the Genues. And as always, Frank Heinen wrote a beautiful portrait, this time of the tough-as-nails Sampdoria defender Pietro Vierchowod.
For this edition we also flew to Brazil for an interview with former PSV hero Alex. We stayed closer to home to visit the Roda JC pop-up museum in Kerkrade. Editor Dave Aalbers wrote about the fierce rivalry between Hannover 96 and Eintracht Braunschweig. Gerrit-Jan van Heemst delved into the rise and fall of the NCRV Mini football show, a true viewing figures cannon in the 1970s and 1980s. Elisa Kuster went in search of the lost championship scale of Dordrecht'90. Would she find him? And Bas Voets makes his debut with a story about the last major match in the Olympic Stadium . Editor Martijn Schwillens also tells about the NEC of the 1988-1989 season, a characteristic team that determined the DNA of the club from Nijmegen.
Master photographer Marco Magielse also made some nice reports for Staantribune # 35 - Sampdoria. And of course, regular items such as De Voetbalstad (Groningen), Het Shirt (West Bromwich Albion) and Frank Heinen's column should not be missed.
