Birthday in more or less dystopian times, with the world being dragged into the moving sand of populism while a pandemic threats to end for good life as we knew it. However, today let’s forget about that for a couple of hours. Should we do that because football is larger than life? No, because it’s not. For some of us who we know why we stand here (😆), FCSP is not just about football, is rather the desire for things in the world working in a different way as reflected in sports.

We may not be really old in this (personally just 13-14 years, there are a couple of Scum comrades that go a few years further back) but the world HAS grown old in between. As Greeks we lived the transition from the meretricious prosperity and out-of-control show-off through frenzied naderism to the bleak reality of pensioners blowing up their heads with shotguns in front of the parliament, the reality of a people found hang by their bedsheets on the morning news and people asphyxiating by stoves, burning furniture at home, unable to pay for essential heating… We also witnessed the death of hope and rise of numbness in a society that, regardless all that, still tries to find a way forward. We even changed (and hopefully evolved) personally but, aside (true loyal) friends and family, one thing has remained unchanged all along: what FC Sankt Pauli means to us 😎

So yes, we celebrate today alright and we’ll keep on doing it even if football ceases to exist. Celebrate FCSP, celebrate life and we’ll work our way with the rest, HAPPY BIRTHDAY FC SANKT PAULI ☠️☠️☠️

PS: Not to forget, Liga 2 restarts in empty stadiums this weekend, (whatever this thing ends up to be) we play on Sunday
