While talking through the recent interviews about FTMH, I was reminded about how we came across the amazing story of Vegalta and their fans. Of how a trip to a Championship (tier 2) game in a small coastal town on the East Coast of England meant that we saw the evidence of fan power in action – as the wave of worldwide support for Vegalta surfed through to the tune of ‘Take Me Home Country Road’.
I looked out the YouTube video that I watched that day in Ipswich with our friends from Sendai and the staff of the club that had done so much to show their support, and to this day, it still makes the hair stand up on the back of my neck. Seems appropriate to run it on game day. Get the glory Sendai!!!!
Here’s to global fan power. Good to talk to you Dave at Sounder at Heart… This ones for you.
