Since 2013 there is a Scottish based point of reference for all English speaker Parma supporters, long before us and Parma Calcio social accounts: Solo Parma.
Behind it, GiovanniDougall, a lifelong fan that we had the pleasure to meet in person many times. We suggest you all to follow his channels and to get in contact with him, he will be surely happy to answer (if he is not training for the next marathon).
Let’s build a worldwide Parma fans network together.
This is the part of football we like the most: meeting good people.
Thank you to Darren Bentley, Burnley Football Club Media Manager, that agreed to kid with us and took a pic with our Hawaiian style holiday hat.
The story behind this pic?
As you know, we have been in Burnley last August to follow friendly match in Turf Moor and met many abroad fans there – read the post “About Turf Moor, cricket and relatives” – receiving a great welcome from Clarets fans.
We started a Twitter chat with Darren after that he posted a picture of him and his colleague, the commentor Phil Bird, with an Hawaiian style Burnley shirt during the match between Burnley and Parma, so that we decided to ship them our Hawaiian style hat.
It was a way to say thank you to Burnley people and to express the wish to meet them again on the field, who knows, hopefully not for a friendly match.
Hi, my name is Mirko, I write you from Children Hospital Oncology Division [English Translation follows]
🇮🇹 “Ciao sono Mirko, vi scrivo dal reparto di oncologia pediatrica.
Sono le 11:00 e dalla finestra della mia stanza, numero 4, vedo arrivare un gruppo di tifosi del Torino con in mano uno striscione con scritto: MIRKO SIAMO TUTTI CON TE. Ma allora è vero che siete tutti con me nonostante il mio cuore gialloblù. Che emozione!
Alle 15:00 sono in collegamento pronto per il match Parma-Torino. La partita è equilibrata e finisce sullo 0-0. Il Parma si porta a casa un punto molto importante per la salvezza, mentre il Toro con una vittoria avrebbe potuto puntare alla Champions League. Migliore in campo per il Parma, Gazzola, abile nel recuperare palla e nel sostenere la squadra fino alla fine. Per i granata, Berenguer, bravo nel recuperare tanti palloni e attaccare l’area del Parma.
Ringrazio i tifosi del Torino, sempre nel cuore quelli del Parma.
Dalla mia postazione anche per oggi è tutto
🇬🇧 “It’s 11 o’clock and from the window of my room, number 4, I see a group of Torino fans handling a banner with written: MIRKO WE ARE WITH YOU. So it si true that you are all with me despite my yellow and blue heart. What an emotion!
Ar 3 PM I’m connected and ready for the Parma vs Torino match. Game is in balance and ends 0-0. Parma conquer one very important point for salvation, although Toro, with a victory, could dream about Champions League. The best on the field for Parma was Gazzola, skillful in retrieving the ball and supporting the team until the end. For granata, Berenguer, good in both, getting back the ball and attacking Parma’s box.
I say thank you to Torino fans, Parma ones are always in my heart.
From my station this is all.
