    Hi guys,

    First, I will introduce myself. My name is Paul Baaijens, 24 years old and currently living in Nijmegen, The Netherlands. At the moment I am working as a teacher of French at the Over Betuwe College in Elst.

    In December 2013 I am planning to stay in London for 5 weeks. My enthusiasm for football is huge. All the clubs in London have my special attention. I would like to be part of this unique culture for a longer period. I have a clear goal: visiting all of the 13 London professional football clubs and getting to know their fanatic supporters. The English football supporter is quite a phenomenon in Holland.

    I will write a book about this phenomenon: the London football supporter. I want to find as many supporters as possible (die-hards!) who want to tell me about their club and share their passion with me. I want to compare the London clubs and I would like to know what the club means to the supporters. In my opinion, there is a lot to write about London football.

    My questions:

    1. Do you guys know (or are you?) a die-hard fan with some good stories about your club for an interview?
    2. Do you know anyone who will meet up before, during and after a game? It's an essential part of my book, going to a matchday with a supporter.
    3. Anything else you can help me with, would be highly appreciated.

    Thanks in advance for your response!

    Paul

    I had two Dutch colleages/friends come over for a football match last season and they loved it. One supports, ah **** I've forgotten the team's name, we played them in the one of the European cups... anyway, they now sing "When the saints (Spurs) come marching in" very slowly like we do, all because they liked the way we sing it.

    I can't offer you any help apart from this: Any time they felt like being a little naughty, such as visiting the female toilets (they're men), they would tell the eveyone listening that they were German. If you want to be naughty, tell us English you are German.

    You probably mean FC Twente, although you've played NEC Nijmegen too in the past.
    I don't like germans..
