Welcome Bernard, Nashat, Bryan, Miroslav and Ransford.
Welcome to our wonderful country The Netherlands, and to the wonderful region in it: Twente. We look forward to see you shine in our stadium, De Grolsch Veste.
To learn a little bit more of the habits and phrases of Twente, as well as some great FC Twente-players in the past, we have compiled a small ABC-guide to ease your stay.
We continue with the letter G.
G is for grass. Grass is something we assume you are very familiar with. But in rural Twente the Grass is all around you, not only on the football pitches. You’ve probably heard of the grass we sell in our coffeeshops, but we assume you’re not as attracted to that as you are to our football pitches. The grass in ’De Grolsch Veste’ was a real issue last year. Pending the season our pitch got in abysmal shape. In march, even when it was three times better than the Amsterdam Arena we decided to replace it just before the PSV game. We didn’t make it in time. The game had to be rescheduled. The commotion these days showed us we are getting very close to the top. Other topteams tried to talk the KNVB into deducting points for this mistake. All Twente got was a fine. Anyway, now we have a great pitch once again. There should be no problem for you guys to play great games. Maybe someday when you are a substitute, you can witness the greenkeepers crew in action. There is something very odd in their actions during half time. It is a funny story to explain, but maybe it is a good idea to find out if the readers know.
For the first time in The Tukker ABC there’s a test. The question is: After the change of pitch, the one that caused us problems, the half time crew have changed the execution of their jobs. What has changed? Please leave your answers in the comments.
