2nd visit to Anfield 🏟🏴 | Premier League 🏆 | Liverpool FC - Chelsea FC 2-0 | 53.279 👥 | 14.04.2019 📅 |
The revisit to Anfield was a magic game as well. The title race between Manchester City and Liverpool was incredible at that time. Before kickoff the fans remembered the 96 who tragically died at Hillsborough 30 years ago. Afterwards it really was an astonishing Premier League game with many chances on each sides. A goal from Naby Keita and a stunning Strike from Mo Salah took the Reds to the 2-0 victory over Chelsea. Anfield is a magic and very special ground I try to visit again as soon as possible with my mates!
1st visit to Bramall Lane 🏟🏴 | 11/92 | Championship 🏆 | Sheffield United - Millwall FC 1-1 | 26.703 👥 | 13.04.2019 📅 |
In April we travelled to Northern England. We lived in Liverpool but in that Saturday we travelled by train to the Steel City Sheffield. We all looked forward to the game between the Blades and Millwall Football Club. Bramall Lane is a nice ground just in the city centre of Sheffield. Our seats were perfect because they were just in front of the pitch and the game really was fascinating till the last minute. Sheffield took the lead but then Millwall got several big chances which they missed. After a red card for the Blades and a missed penalty from Millwall, the Lions scored the equalizer with a stunning header by Jake Cooper in extra time. The whole Stadium was silenced with this goal but all three of us were excited. Up the Lions!
1st visit to The Den 🏟🏴 | 10/92 | FA Cup Quarter Final 🏆 | Millwall FC - Brighton & Hove Albion 4-5 (OP) | 17.137 👥 | 17.03.2019 📅 |
The next day we went to see one of my favourite teams in England and to do the 10th ground of my #92challenge. Millwall Football Club played against the Seagulls in the FA Cup Quarter Final. The Den is a really nice traditional English Ground in South Bermondsey. The game was quite good, the underdog fought and took the lead with 2-0 after 80 minutes. But the Seagulls came back and so it was 2-2 after regular and extra time. In the penalty shootout two Millwall Players missed the goal so that Brighton & Hove took their way to the Semifinals. Millwall is such a great Club with a long history and The Den really is an amazing ground. I hope that I come back soon and see the Lions win! Fantastic support from the Millwall Fans through the game.
1st visit to London Stadium 🏟🏴 | 9/92 | Premier League 🏆 | West Ham - Huddersfield Town 4-3 | 59.931 👥 | 16.03.2019 📅 |
Exactly 1 year after I started my #92challenge I travelled with my mate @markusharlington to London to see 2 new grounds. On this weekend there were only few Premier League games because of the FA Cup Quarter Finals. The game between West Ham and Huddersfield Town took place in London Stadium which was built for the Olympic Games in London 2012. I dont like that ground much because it isnt a real football Stadium and there is a bad atmosphere. However the game was brilliant and we saw 7 goals with the final score 4-3.
1st visit to Craven Cottage 🏟🏴 | 8/92 | Premier League 🏆 | Fulham FC - Tottenham Hotspurs 1-2 | 24.807 👥 | 20.01.2019 📅 |
On the next day we travelled to Fulham where the Cottagers played against North London Club Tottenham Hotspurs. Craven Cottage is an old-fashioned English ground with a terrace completely made of wood. The game was very interesting, Fulham had a lot of chances and took the lead. But the Spurs fought back and in extra time Harry Winks scored the winner with a beautiful header. Pretty unlucky for Fulham!
1st visit to Loftus Road 🏟🏴 | 7/92 | Championship 🏆 | Queens Park Rangers - Preston North End 1-4 | 13.736 👥 | 📅 19.01.2019 |
On a cold winter day my first trip to the UK in 2019 started with the fixture QPR v Preston. Loftus Road is a nice and pretty old English ground and the view from our seats was incredible. Preston was the stronger team and they earned their win. Final score was 1-4 and the travelling fans shout in full voices: "This is a library!". They showed nice support the whole day. Another step done at my #92challenge.
1st visit to Old Trafford 🏟🏴 | 6/92 | Champions League Group Stage 🏆 | Manchester United - Valencia CF 0-0 | 73.569 👥 | 02.10.2018 📅 |
On the 2nd of October I travelled to Manchester to visit my first Champions Legaue match ever and to confirm the 6th step of my #92challenge. The Theatre of Dreams had been always a dream for me since I was a kid. The game between the "Red Devils" and Valencia CF wasnt as good as expected. I dont like Mourihno football either. The atmosphere was according to the game but we had a lot of fun that day. Old Trafford is always worth the trip.
1st visit to Selhurst Park 🏟🏴 | 5/92 | Premier League 🏆 | Crystal Palace - Liverpool FC 0-2 | 25.750 👥 | 20.08.2018 📅 |
On the last day of my England trip in August I visited one of my favourite grounds and one of my favourite teams in England. On monday night the "Eagles" played against Liverpool FC. This Stadium is very cool. Good atmosphere at home games, old terraces and no space between the pitch and the supporters. How football should be. The game was amazing and Palace fought till the end but the Reds got one lucky penalty and scored the second goal by Mané after counter attack. I hope I will come back soon to this special ground.
1st visit to Griffin Park 🏟🏴 | 4/92 | Championship 🏆 | Brentford FC - Sheffield Wednesday 2-0 | 10.134 👥 | 19.08.2018 📅 |
On sunday I travelled to Griffin Park in the West of London to see my first Championship ground and to do the 4th step of my #92challenge. Griffin Park is home of the Bees who played against Sheffield Wednesday on this warm day. Its a really typical old English Stadium and its a pity that it will be demolished. The game was quite interesting and the Bees won against the Owls with the Final Score of 2-0. In the first half there was really good support by the away fans but their team didnt play really good so they got quiet soon. Really a nice day with nice weather.
1st visit to Ibrox Stadium 🏟🏴 | 1/42 | Scottish Premiership Playoff 🏆 | Rangers FC - Kilmarnock FC 1-0 | 49.703 👥 | 05.05.2018 📅 |
I did my first visit to Scotland at Ibrox to see my favourite Scottish team Rangers FC. The Season 2017/2018 wasnt the best for Rangers FC an Celtic won another Scottish League title. But the game was quite good and Rangers scored the late winner. I hope to be back soon at this nice Stadium.
1st visit to King Power Stadium 🏟🏴 | 2/92 | FA Cup 🏆 | Leicester City - Chelsea FC 1-2 ET | 31.792 👥 | 18.03.2018 📅 |
The day after the magic night at Anfield I travelled to Leicester by train to do the second step of my #92challenge. The FA Cup Quarterfinal took place at King Power Stadium where Leicester City faced Chelsea FC on sunday evening. Morata scored the opening goal in the first half but the Foxes got the equalizer with Vardys goal later on. The atmosphere was rousing an it was a hard fight during extra time. Pedros goal took the Blues to the Semifinal and in that season they won the FA Cup. Great adventure and a great trip to Leicester.
1st visit to Anfield 🏟🏴 | 1/92 | Premier League 🏆 | Liverpool FC - Watford FC 5-0 | 53.287 👥 | 17.03.2018 📅 |
I started my #92challenge at Anfield with the fixture Liverpool FC v Watford FC. It really was a cold day but the fans were incredible. This Stadium is something special and the hymn "You"ll never walk alone" really is magic. Salah was magic too on that cold evening, he scored 4 Goals and Watford hadn't any chance to win the match. It really was a nice experience and it wont be my last visit to Anfield.
