A small post about the draw for the Europa League round of 32 . AS Roma avoided hard hitters like Bilbao, Everton and Zenit and will entertain the Dutch side Feyenoord in February.
The club from Rotterdam is currently fourth placed in the Eredivisie and although I'm a Belgian and they played Standard Liege not that long ago in the group fase, I know litte about them. Wikipedia has all the answers, undoubtedly. Players you might know or recognise are goalie Vermeer, defenders Mathijsen and Boulahrouz, midfield talent Jordy 'Xavi' Clasie and attacker Kazim-Richards (or Richards-Kazim, or Kazim-Kazim or any other composition with the word Kazim).
So feel free to comment your feelings, love, hate, joy about Feyenoord and the Europa League in general. Like it or not, we're stuck with it for now. But Feyenoord do have a history of emotional and passionate fans so both games are gonna have one hell of an atmosphere, both in the Olimpico and De Kuip.
I reckon there are quite some Dutch fans lurking around in Church so maybe they can give us a better insight of the red and white part of Rotterdam (the other club of that city is famously called Sparta).
Hey, it's not Barcelona but it's something, right?
