A Parades Commission spokesperson confirmed: "The Commission received on September 19 notification of a procession on Saturday, November 16 by the Royal Netherlands Football Association along a route from Dublin Road to Donegall Avenue.


"The organiser has notified of 900 participants with the procession taking place from 6pm until 6.30pm."


When feasible and cleared by the fans ambassadors and host authority's the GAWA hold marches to most away games, Iirc this is the first to return the serve, hope they enjoy the visit without the 3 points...

Coconut for anywan who spots moi...

Life must be slow if walking from a pub to a game is worthy of comment.

Jayzuz. Easier on the eye than the typical boilers you see with cans of tennants at the real thing.
Which do you prefer the one with the yellow tee shirt or the man beside with the red sunglasses.

I bet you really get excited when you see the well dressed Orangemen march past on the Twelfth.

I get that. I just don't care. Maybe living in a global alpha city as opposed to a provincial town the ability to manage a crowd doesn't really seem worthy of a thread.

I don’t understand what the OP is meant to be discussing. But did you know the Dutch are the tallest people in Europe. Their country is pretty flat and they are experts at keeping out the sea.

King Billy would have been a Remainer. Didnt he cross the sea to conquer England for the Netherlands.

You are correct. England has been conquered three times and acquiesced on all three occasions.

Firstly by the French in 1066, King Liam in 1688 and the Germans in 1714.

Wrong on three counts.

It would take a bit more than your gurning to prove those facts wrong.

The Frenchman William of Normandy became king of England; the Dutchman King Billy became king of England and the German George became king of England.

That's more accurate now that you've refined it.
