'Ello. Following this topic from a few days ago, I thought it nice to join in as well. Wife of 'Runner', and also quite active (some'd say too active....) on social media/forums, so why not join the forum? And I was asked by Gally to do an intro, so here we go. In short: Dutch, moved to the UK in 2011 for my study stuff, and ended up in Darfield after 2 years in Hull. Although friends say I already sound and act more Barnsley than many. I'll take it as a compliment. As mentioned in that thread, I had never seen a live football game in my life before I moved to Darfield. I followed the Dutch national team whenever they were playing, but that was when they weren't *****. Nowadays.... don't get me started. At least the Dutch ladies won the European Championship... Anyway, I had never been to a game before, but I was sold from that first Barnsley game back in January 2015, I think it was. OK, it was getting used to watching the game without the commentary and having to sort out things like names myself, but strangely enough that was easier to do than expected, especially if you start getting into it, reading the news and following team updates, so you know who is who, etc. In the end, and it has to be said, before the bandwagon really took off (=before they got promoted) we decided to just go all-in and buy a season ticket. And I just love the home games, a pint before the match, sometimes one after. Atmosphere is great most of the time, Other things I like: trail running, sports in general, beer (drinking and brewing), whisky, sci-fi (reading and television), coffee, travelling in our camper van, F1 and MotoGP and their feeder series, browsing the interwebs/social media/forums, board games... well I can go on and on. Any questions, ask.
