Racing 2 – 0 Independiente

Short story short, if you have been keeping up, you should know we dont like these people (if not, see aehnliche beitraege, to the right of your screen please). Today, we won on the field…

And off the field…

Historic. Weekday. Away Game. 1200 KM distance. 10 000 Fans. Only Racing Club.

You might be wondering why we are showing you a blurry picture of some busses on a rainy Argentine country road. Its because these busses are part of an historic mass mobilization, once again protagonized by the fans of Buenos Airess great and glorious Racing Club. Tonight is the final of the „Copa Argentina,“ between Racing Club and Boca Juniors, taking place in San Juan, 1200 KM from Buenos Aires. Just how massive is this mobilization?

The caravan of Racing fans is ***111*** sold out busses, ***21*** chartered airplanes, plus all those travelling in cars or normal flights.

This not being enough, the club has installed cinema screens at its social centers in Avellaneda and Villa del Parque. Tickets to both are sold out as well.

A Racing Lo Hace Grande Su Gente.

Match starts at 1 30 am, and you can watch it on rojadirecta.es, and here are images from the semi-final, where Racing dramatically eliminated River Plate in a penalty shootout:

(For you Europeans who only are aware of footballers who have played over there…you will notice one of the most recent additions to Racings roster…Mauro Camoranesi.)

The Great Catalogue Update Part 9: FF Goes Euro 2012 and Re-Stocks / Atlanta Barras Go Hollywood

No, this isnt like with South Africa, Fire and Flames is not going to Poland or the Ukraine. As should be obvious, its not futbol we like…its Atlanta, Racing, and every four years, when the bug bites, Argentina in the World Cup. And with the exception of Argentina, what Racing and Atlanta do on the field unfortunately rarely has very much to do with what most of you would recognize as futbol. This in part why this blog has suddenly gone so quiet as far as futbol is concerned…its just been very depressing lately (the other part is simple lack of time). Atlanta, with three games to go, is fighting desperately to remain in second division, while Racing has been the source of one absurd scandal after the other, even one including a player drawing a firearm in the locker room.

Anyways, what we mean with „Fire and Flames Goes EM“ is our contribution to keeping you all part of the „in“ crowd as far as the mass insanity of the moment is concerned. So, for the occasion we have re-printed the great „Hate Germany“ shirt. Other suggested items of the moment…


No explanation needed.

For decorating your surroundings…

And finally, a bit of something to read about how much different of a form futbol and that which surrounds it can take…

The futbol related aside, after re-issuing a whole series of classic Fire and Flames designs last month, the next round is coming this month, with all the following designs being again available in all sizes…

*1945

*Class Pride


*Old School


(Bordeaux as well)

*Revenge

Finally, to start and end with futbol…

Tonight, at exactly the same time as Germany – Portugal, but much more strongly recommenden, our beloved Atlanta has a life or death game in the struggle to avoid relegation to third division. So, if those in Göttingen hear wild shouts of celebration, even though on your screen no goals have been scored, you will know why. It wont be the first time…Racing won the relegation match 2008 at the same time as the last Euro final, leaving many in the Rote Strasse wondering why people were wildly yelling „goool“ when nothing was happening on their screens. :-)
(If you are looking for even more altenative entertainment, Argentina vs Brazil is also taking place parallel to the Germany game…)

We leave you with a video from a coming sensationalist „documentary“ on Argentine barras in which Atlanta is very prominently featured…

Gol…..

GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOLLLLL

1988, South American Supercup Semi-final…

1997, Libertadores Cup Second Round…

Just Now!!!! Copa Argentina Semi-final…

Fuck Europe. Fuck Euro 2012. Fuck Germany. Aguante Racing.
