Alright my Ansomesssss howwwwsssss uuussseeeee ddooooiiinnngggg

Well, game day semi-final arrived, and we were not out we were out,out in town from 10 am and the first beer is always the best

Sitting in the majestic pub in Dam Square the seats soon filled up with West Ham fans and even some locals who like me were enjoying the 25 euro jugs of beer

The famous footballs got bought out again and were seen flying through the air and as always sometimes landing on people’s tables sending beers flying

The weather was pleasant, and so the time came for us to board the train from Amsterdam Central to take us to Alkmarr Station. the train was full of West Ham fans, who we’re all a bit worried about as we had heard the AZ ultras had already attacked fans who had gone up early

With this in mind, the police were now out in gorse guiding the 400 of us to the fan zone,

When we arrived there were about 900 already there so with 950 tickets sold I would estimate 1400 in the zone 🥸

After more alcohol, it was time to head via bus to the stadium but not before Andy Carol made an appearance leading the singing with West Ham are massive and of course, Andy Carols having a party. Bring your vodka and your Charlie 😂

Onto the ground, we went, and the atmosphere was electric beers on the terraces as well helped the atmosphere

You know the game you the score so I won’t bore you, but afterwards, what scenes David Moyes got an ovation and a song as did the whole team they stayed for about 20 mins but didn’t come over for the five as they were dealing with the fights in the VIP section involving there ultras and the players family’s

To see Paqueta run into the crowd with Benrahma and all the others was a sight to see

We were kept in for one and a half hours and then a bus to the train station where again we were held for an hour saw me get back to town at 1-30am
But I didn’t stop there more beers to get to the hotel at 4 am to wake up at 6-30am for the train to the airport and home

Well, what three days they were!

Special mention to Norman, Kevin, Dave, Harry, Mason,Charlie, Deeksy and Jake

By the way, never shout where’s Charlie in Amsterdam 🥸🥸🥸

Off to Prague and of course, Big fat Sam on Sunday but until then

Brady out out out
