Here it is, our second newsletter! Enjoy the wee read! Hail, Hail!
Markus, Fanny and myself started our wee 4 days trip on the 2nd of September with getting on train to Geneva Airport. There we hit the international roads with a shitty EasyShit flight to Barcelona. Spanish fenian Gonso picked us up with his new car at Barcelona’s airport and we drove about 3.5h to Villarreal where we had a first positive shocker. When we walked into our hotel the whole Celtic team was waiting in the lobby, what lead to a “fucking hell” shout by myself. The team wasn’t too happy about having supporters in their hotel and just gave us a wee wave. Kayal at least was ready to take a picture with me (see below).
We then headed to town to the peña Celticsubmari, the clubhous of the local Celtic Supporters Club, where we were having chats with new and old friends from the Yellow Submarines. Some beers and sandwiches later we headed to bed for being ready for the matchday on the next day. And it was worth it! We started with some drinks at around 11, singing, dancing and meeting other Tims (just a few though) and having a great day. In the afternoon we were invited for a loads of beers, paella and were even interviewed by the Villarreal FC TV (see video)! Friendship at it’s best! Doing a march before kick off with the organized band wasn’t that bad either.. 😉More videos can be found here and for game highlights click here!
After long discussions we even could take our flags inside and put it up (maybe you spotted it in the hihglights). We sang all the game, even started Villarreal songs as their fans didn’t start singing. The game itself wasn’t very good, but still nice because of the 6 goals we did see. And the best of it was the wee cancer patient who scored a nice goal (click here to watch)! This goal was shown all around the world! You got to love Villareal and their peña!
After the game we went on with having a good time, as we did the other day with a wee tour to Peñiscola, a neighbour village, plus having a last blast in Villarreal the night!
We want to thank Javier and David Vilar Blasco, Gonso, Dirk, all the new sottish and spanish friends and all we forgot for an great trip!
