フットボールの母国出身ですが、２００３年から仕事のため静岡に住んでました。もちろん、故郷のBrighton and Hove Albionサポですけど、静岡に来た時から大エスパルスファンに成ったぞ！日本にいるなら、熱い熱いエスパルス応援をする。イギリスに帰国しても、地元のチームのスタジアムに戻っても、死ぬまでエスパサポです。もちろん。 エスパルスの事を世界にちゃんとに紹介したいのでこのホームページ作った。このブログは全部英語なので、英語が分からない方にはちょっと大変かもしれませんが、英語に興味ある方もエスパ好きな方も、歓迎です！！みんな頑張ってください！＾＾ｙ よろしくお願いします！ Barry より
That's four years of meaning to get round to it. Having followed the Mighty 'Pulse since 2004 and experienced enough highs, lows and last minute penalty misses to last a lifetime, it's high time we started documenting our adventures. Join us as we travel the length and breadth of Japan, seeing the sights, drinking the ales, befriending the locals, and occasionally even taking in 90 minutes here and there.
Originally consisting of one loan member sitting through a home defeat in a typhoon (without the luxury of a roof), the UK Ultras are now a fluid group of 20+ S-Pulse fans from around the world - including several Japanese! The only continent not yet represented is Africa.
Above and beyond acting as a scrapbook for our own varied misadventures, this fanzine's goal is to provide news and information to the English speaking world about a truly unique football club, and to help build and broaden S-Pulse's profile on the world stage. With thousands of visits here from all four corners of the planet, the world is clearly hungry to learn about S-Pulse, and we're happy to help spread the word.
Being a football fan has never just been about what happens on the pitch, and this fanzine is here to document all the fun and games that go along with following S-Pulse. We'll sometimes report on news other than S-Pulse which rattles our cage, but we're experts on nothing other than our own opinion, so don't take anything we say too seriously. Match reports being a good example. Wildly biased and put together on memory (it's not easy taking notes while dancing the samba), they may occasionally be lacking in analytical depth.
Other than that, just enjoy one of the wildest rides in the J. League - Shimizu S-Pulse!
Having set up this fanzine back in April 2008 it's since taken on a life and a momentum of it's own. It's not easy to always find the time to keep the site updated, but seeing how many hits we get from around the world, the effort is worth it.
When not bouncing around behind the goal at Nihondaira, he expends his remaining football energy on the glorious Brighton and Hove Albion.
Fuz: Lives in Osaka now but her heart is still in Shimizu. Mother to one cheeky wee girl she lives in hope of getting to more games these days.
When she's not rooting for the 'Pulse, Fuz spends her footie time following the mightyGlasgow Rangers.
