 All the way from Oz.
Topic Originator: dickandbert  
Date:   Wed 20 Apr 01:27

I’m hoping to combine a business trip to Eindhoven with a visit to the home of football to witness the great escape. (The QOTS match).

48 hrs return journey and jet lag, it will be worth it all to see the Pars stay in the championship.

I was a former season ticket holder on the Norrie, before moving to Melbourne a few years back. I’m pretty excited about meeting old friends and watching my team live.

COYP.

It would be good to welcome all you guys who are travelling a distance to the game, perhaps a few tables could be put aside in Legends for you all to meet together and swap stories

What time does the Legends open for an evening game usually, and is it open for after the match too?

Not sure my feathered friend. I was saying I only tentatively follow AFL and Soccer.
It’s just not the same if it’s not your team!

It`s strange how our commitment to the team of our early days sticks with us throughout our lives. My primary school pal from my early days in Cowdenbeath, who lives in Queensland is lost if he can`t get the Cowdenbeath result after every game. I haven`t been so heartless to tell him that the Dunfermline result, I can understand but Cowdenbeath!!!!!??? That makes no sense at all.

It’s still his team. I would guess some Rangers and Celtic fans would think the same way about Dunfermline.

Well it’s now confirmed. Flight booked.
Let’s hope results go our way! I’ve been to some nail biting last games at EEP before. Meadowbank and Airdrie among others.

I can’t wait. I will be in Legends before the match. COYP.

Let`s hope your trip to EEP coincides with Championship survival for us. You have to travel even further than I do. As a far-flung expat it is always so special to be able to watch the Pars live and especially at EEP. No doubt this will be the same for you. My last live game at EEP was I think December 2018. I hope to be able to take in some League Cup games in the first part of July when we are back in Scotland on holiday, and await the league cup draw and fixture list. ParsTV is great and allows us expats to watch the games, but nothing beats watching live in person.

Do you know if anyone is asking the stadium announcer to give you a mention, Gordon? If not, I could so that for you before the game.

Nobody is requesting a mention. I don’t have friends just people that don’t hate me us much as others! 😂
