Today is a sad day for me… It is with much regret that I have to announce to all his friends here on the Blog that Finnster passed away last night…
I got the message early this morning via email. Apparently, he suffered a heart attack…
Finn came to the blog many years ago, probably around 2006 and we all gotten to know him as the sharp-tongued Norwegian from Nu Yok. Liverpool fan. Dirk Kuyt fan.
Funny as they come.
And passionate about Dutch football. I had the opportunity to spend time with him in real life, like passing ships.
I didn’t really know him. But I am surely going to miss him.
Our thoughts are with his loved ones…. May he rest in peace….
This is sad news indeed. RIP Finnster.
Wow. Horrible news. Condolences to his family.
RIP Finnster ….. I remember his thoughtful posts and his love for the Oranje.
RIP Finnster – Take care wherever you are.
OMG!!!! when I clicked here, I thought it could be a joke.
🙁 RIP finnster. 🙁
RIP Finnister……..My thoughts and prayers are with you.
Really sad news. Thanks for sharing your thoughts and love of Oranje with us. RIP!!!
RIP Finn, we’ll miss you – your humour,your passion for oranje and liverpool…
Terrible news. Thoughts with his family.
terrible news, always liked reading his take. RIP finnister.
Oh my goodness,once i entered here,i wonder who is this man,then this name looks fimilar.Okay,Jan is cracking some jokes with some funny things.But….damn it…life sucks….
I am so sorry RIP Finnster,may you rest in peace,we all gonna miss you for sure.
Remember his great comments. Great pal to chat here in the blog, we will miss him…He was very active in the blog, one of the leaders I shall say because he was always respectful and very sharp.
Rest in peace. This kind of things are important, tomorrow´s game is only that: A GAME.
Will miss you Buddy – We had some fun and banter together here. Holland has to win today FOR YOU !! Miss You !
It is so strange as none of us ever met him, yet we all felt that we knew him through his comments on the blog. It is a very sad day. I hope our guys do it for him tomorrow because he was certainly the most committed oranje fan out there. So Finnster can have a last good laugh at the expense of the Germans!
I feel sad. Rest in peace Finnter.
As a newcomer I can only wish his family much strength in coping with their loss.
Brings EURO-12 into prespective doesn’t it? RIP FINN!!!
Our condolences to Finnster’s family. Hope Holland beat Germany so Finnster will smile up there.
Sad news, Finn will be missed a lot on this blog:( poor Finn I remember his comments from three days ago before the Denmark game, he was going to a wedding and he was trying to find a tv to watch the game!
Very sad… you will be missed. Rest in peace Finnster.
Thanks for letting us know Jan. Finn, you will be truly missed. Our deep condolences to his family. May God continue to hold them ever so closely in the days and weeks ahead. Sterkte.
Wow very saddened hearing this as I remember reading from back in the day. RIP Finny, my condolences to your family and loved ones.
Tough post Jan, usually I come here as you and other writers are my “vision” xanax for helping me calm down pre/post game for years now. As I am certain it was not easy reading the message and writing this, take care everyone.
Rest in Peace Finnster – very sad indeed. Thoughts and condolences to his family.
I came to Jan’s blog always expecting to hear him say something interesting. There was something comforting about his steadfast presence that made this place feel like home. He will be truly missed.
Oh my God, I can’t believe it…
Finn, I hardly knew you.. but somehow so sad to hear this news.
See you on the other side where we can eternally argue Kuyt v RvP, brother.
You will be missed for sure.
I thought this is a joke. Rest in Peace, Finnster.
Oranje shall revenge tomorrow. You will be proud!
Yeah, Finn was a constant fresh breeze with his insights and his sharp wit…
RIP my friend. I always remember your thoughtful posts. Oranje will surely win tomorrow to make you happy. This win will be for you.
Shocking. Life is a fragile thing. Condolences to his family. RIP Finnster.
Our prayers are w you and your family. While you are up there see if you can pull some strings. You deserve a win in honor of the love and passion for your Orange. You will be missed
Terrible news. I feel so sad…
Thanks Finn for make me enjoy a lot reading your comments.
I am sure you were a great guy and now you are enjoying a lot in heaven!
Peace Finnster. May our lads tomorrow play with the same passion that you have always had for Oranje. On to victory!
Wow, incredible, I can’t believe it…
Oh Gosh what a sad news….
God bless your soul, Rest in peace Finn.
I have read Jan’s blog for…3 years maybe. I have read many of his comments in Jan’s blog.
omg. this is shocking news. terrible. we all gonna miss u finn. our thoughts are with ur family. RIP
R.I.P. Finnster… condolences to your family and friends.
You will always be remembered. I’ve been reading your comments for the past few years. Even though I have never met you, I feel I know that you’re such a nice person. Rest in peace and may your soul be happy when your beloved oranje wins. May your family and friends have the strength to cope with this.
OMG! RIP Finn, I think Finn was the only one who knew when I was joking around here.
I will miss his sarcasm and humour. He was top shelf.
Hopefully Oranje will rise in his honour. Kuyt to be subbed in and score the game winner
Rest in peace Finnster.
This is really sad news, RIP Finn.
I enjoyed reading your comments for the last 2 years, you always brought the right attitude to discussions here and had a great sense of humour!
Oh man…Rest in piece. A man with a great sense of humour that could make you laugh even when you are angry or in bad mood.
Terrible news … RIP Finnster. Will miss your positive attitude and smart contributions to this blog!
You will be missed Finn!!
Strangely, my thoughts on the German game have now changed.
Germany have no chance. None!
Rest In Peace Finnster01

I’m extremely impressed with your writing skills as well as with the layout on your weblog. Is this a paid theme or did you customize it yourself? Either way keep up the nice quality writing, it’s rare to see a great blog like this one today..

My spouse and i got quite glad Emmanuel managed to finish up his researching from the precious recommendations he made when using the weblog. It’s not at all simplistic to just choose to be releasing points that many people may have been selling. We really remember we have got you to be grateful to for that. The type of illustrations you have made, the straightforward web site menu, the relationships you will give support to promote – it’s all awesome, and it’s making our son and the family understand that subject is fun, which is unbelievably pressing. Thanks for all the pieces!
I got what you mean , appreciate it for putting up.Woh I am delighted to find this website through google. “Delay is preferable to error.” by Thomas Jefferson.
