The Diary: Long-range lover from Rotterdam

HANS DE ROON lives on the south side of Rotterdam. "Five minutes from Feyenoord's ground," he said. Not that the retired town hall clerk ever makes the trip to De Kuip, The Tub, as the Stadion Feijenoord is popularly known. De Roon is as passionate about his football as any Rotterdammer. Probably more so. Indeed, just to be with the footballing love of his life he endures a gruelling 20-hour trip. The Rotterdam resident is a season-ticket holder at Sunderland's Stadium of Light.
