Career

Club career

Rangers

Van Bronckhorst was already a regular international when he signed for Rangers in 1998, joining up with compatriot Dick Advocaat, the Scottish club's new manager. In his first competitive game for Rangers, a remarkable UEFA Cup tie away to League of Ireland side Shelbourne (although played at Tranmere Rovers' Prenton Park), Van Bronckhorst marked his debut with a finely-struck goal as Rangers came back from 3-0 down to win the match 5-3. Van Bronckhorst went on to score 22 goals for Rangers (13 in the league, three in the Scottish Cup, one in the Scottish League Cup, three in the Champions League and two in the UEFA Cup), mostly as a play-making midfielder of notable skill and subtlety, before an £8.5 m transfer to Arsenal in the summer of 2001.

Arsenal

Arsène Wenger signed van Bronckhorst to replace the midfield void left by the departure of Emmanuel Petit from Arsenal and he was expected to partner Patrick Vieira in the centre. [1] However, his period at Arsenal was marked by a cruciate knee ligament injury which saw him sidelined after only a few months at the club. When he returned, his role was increasingly minimal and he found himself behind Vieira, Edu and shortly before his departure to Barcelona, Gilberto Silva in the pecking order. He did not leave Arsenal without any silverware, however, as he collected two FA Cup winners' medals and a Premier League winners medal.

Gio in 2006.

As the 2003-2004 season approached, Van Bronckhorst had the opportunity to move to FC Barcelona and work with new boss Frank Rijkaard as part-exchange for the transfer of Cesc Fàbregas to Arsenal. After adapting to his new role as a left back, he helped Barça to a revival in the second half of the season. He won the La Liga title with Barça in the 2004/05 season after some of his finest displays together with 4 goals to his credit. In 2005/06, he helped his club repeat as Liga champions while winning the 2006 Champions League as well (He was the only player who participated in all Champions League matches that season). In Spain, he styled his shirt name to 'Gio' as opposed to his time at Arsenal where his name was 'Van Bronckhorst'. He said on Dutch soccer program Studio Voetbal, that he could return to Feyenoord due to a contract clause that allows him to sign immediately with the club he supported as a boy.

Meisje van de Slijterij (4577 words)
In 1994 was ik ineens zwanger en ik was er stellig van overtuigd dat het er twee waren.
Ik kreeg geen tweeling en elke keer als ik begon te zingen ging Pepijn, waarvan ik ook nog tot een dag voor zijn geboorte dacht dat hij een meisje zou zijn en Fraukje zou heten, in mijn buik te keer.
Dit Meisje van de Slijterij ging afgelopen dinsdagavond in de Malt Barn van The Glenlivet in Schotland geheel en volledig uit haar dak. Niet alleen de aanblik van die paar honderd mannen in kilts was daarvoor verantwoordelijk, maar ook de verfrissende, heftige, meeslepende en geweldige doedelzakmuziek van deze in Schotland mateloos populaire formatie.
