About

This is a collection of writings about various aspects of Romanian football. I’m mainly interested in the history, especially from the inter-war period, but I can be tempted to digress onto more current topics – although I almost never watch football on TV. God, if life weren’t so short…

I am an Englishman living in Bucharest, and so my interests are biased in several directions. I am a Rapid Bucharest fan, to a fairly limited extent, especially now they find themselves reforming in the (even more) amateur leagues. My Romanian is not great to be honest, and I find newspaper reports particularly difficult to read, partly because of Romanians’ natural fondness for abstract nouns and over-complicated clauses. So not my fault then.

Expect gently biased, ill-informed comment on things I have only recently learned about. Great. Right? Keep reading!

  1. Good luck with your site. I really enjoyed it and will look for more posts.
    I follow FC Voluntari as my daughter lives right next to the stadium and I have been a couple of times when there was a match whilst visiting. It is interesting to note the differences between the Premier division in Romania and the Premiership and Championship in England. Goodness, what a contrast in money available. My “home” team, Hull City, have been promoted to the Premiership again and it looks like their financial rewards will total around £200,000,000. Yes two hundred million, and maybe more. Obscene really!!
    Best wishes
