Back on track

It was worth the wait. Almost two months of waiting and the first thing you see is Sankt Pauli crushing poor Greuther Fürth who seemed desperate. Soridon was ready and we were ready. The technical problems of course before the game start were there just to keep the tradition that wants our balls busted before each game true. Something wrong with the sound and (the worse) the decoder needed a new verification (late edit: thanks Thomas and Nadine, right people, at the right place, at the right time 😀 ) due to the long time of inactivity but who cares. Everything solved (commentary sound got fixed on the second half), and SP reigned.


First moment belonged to Spvgg. Berisha on 2′ with a header but Himmelmann’s shoulder was there to repel. On 6′ Gjasula tries to keep the pressure on SP with a shot sent couple of meters away from Himmelmann’s post. On 13′ Thy tries to flank but gets caught offside. On 24′ Alushi passes to Thy and he leaves the ball to Rzatkowski who fires off a nice one but ends in the feet of Heidinger. Sankt Pauli seemed to start taking possession of the ball, something that kind of jammed Fürth’s attacks who all ended above and next to our posts causing no threat. On 34′ Hornschuh while in an offside position receives a high ball from Nehrig and opens the score table in favor of Sankt Pauli. Clearly offside but no one whistled so…Gooooooal. On 38′ another big moment for SP. Sobota executes while receiving the ball from Buchtmann but Mielitz stands in the line and repels. This and a Greuther Fürth sad excuse for flank, where Sobiech easily clears up a shot from Berisha,  sums up the action on this first half.

Second half underway and no substitutions where made. On 48′ Stiepermann tries something from distance but it has the same luck almost all Spvgg shots had in this game. Away from our posts and in the end….NOT a threat. On 50′ a nice flank and Alushi is get’s behind Fürth’s defensive line. His shot is really close to the posts but still not in. Able to get us up from our chairs though. Fürth seemed hopeless. Their futile attempts with Gjasula on 52′ and Tripic on 54′ proved that Spvgg had nothing else to show here. It was up to Sankt Pauli to end it. And thus happened with Sobota on 62′. He controls the diagonal pass from Thy with his body leaving Gießelmann behind him and gets left alone with Mielitz. The last one cant block Sobota’s smart lobe, and there you have it. 0-2 for SP and it all seemed to end for Fürth. On 74′ a desperate attempt on header from Stiepermann, ends some good three meters above our posts.  The action pretty much ends on 90’ with Himmelmann easily blocking a soulless shot from Gießelmann.

Aaaaand that’s how it’s done ladies and gentlemen. Almost 90 minutes of Sankt Pauli football. No other team in the field. Sankt Pauli dominated every inch of the field leaving no space for poor Fürth to react. Our defense was exceptional with no bad moments worthy of mentioning, and the midfielders finally seemed to be working well with the offence leading us to 2 goals and three points in our pocket. A great Sunday and let’s hope that this is the spirit we will carry on to. Next Friday it is Red Bull that we will need to crush, and this time inside Millerntor. Let’s give these bastards some nightmares. Forza Sankt Pauli.
