All for the fun of it now!

Ok, the previous matchday set things straight as far as we were concerned in the Liga. We’re staying for good in die zweite liga, and nothing can change that now. Team showed a whole different face in this second round, making this pre-last matchday really easy. No concern on wining points. Just a lust for good football. Gathering at Soridon drinking beers (coffee for some) and the typical chit chat before the first whistle. A great emotional pre-game moment with Rainer Wulff, the Stadium speaker, who started in September 1986, ending his carreer  after 31 good years of servitude.  Whishing the best for you mate.

Come get some!

Come get some motherfuckers. Do you feel fuckin strong? Come get some. Sankt Pauli, with the aid of Ewald Lienen and the almighty fan base never leaving their side no matter what, has transformed into a beast unmatched. A great deal of horror awaits anyone who dares to cross our path and what we were thinking of as a stressful procedure (first round ended with us havin headaches about how we’d remain in die ZweiteLiga, with so few points gained so far…), has started looking like a great festivity. Our Athens Club friends joined once again to repeat last game’s aura mix.  Everything seemed ideal and this time there was this thing in the air. How to explain. No stress man.  It took Ewald some time but damn it this looks so good. (Whiners rushing to blame it on Ewald on the first round…Suck this…hehe 🙂 )

Who can stop this train?

No one could expect the outcome of this Friday’s matchday. Not in a million years. Soridon packed once again (including a small Athens Club delegation 🙂 ) and everyone hoped for our beloved club to earn the three points, even by stealing them if possible. But damn…Words cannot describe what  went on. Running under the sounds of rehearsals from local folk celebrations taking place just outside our door, the first whistle of the game sounded.

Ooo  yeah baby…

Friday evening and Scum starts gathering at Soridon. The winning streak stopped after a defeat and a tie and everyone wanted to see our beloved Sankt Pauli back to winning games.  It was Nürnberg’s  time to fall under our blade. High hopes and looks like the planets aligned for this one.

LIONS

Ok. Noone…No let me say that better. NOONE would expect something like this.   Monday night is always a hard one, but this particular Monday everything worked in favor. Everyone was there. Soridon packed (same situation at Locomotiva, red line on all along the game) and everyone waited for the win. But this? Fuck man…Still can’t believe it. First whistle of the game sounded and the rest follows below. Biiiig breath and off we go.

Our Game!

Yeh! That’s right. Our fuckin game. From the beginning to the end it was Sankt Pauli all the way.  I guess though that in such games , the law of football is strict even for the ones who deserve 3 points 100%. Miss the obvious and thy shall receive. That’s how it goes. Arminia was nowhere in the field and yet they got one point. Bollocks.   Soridon once again after two weeks of my sorry ass not being able to make it.  Game started!

Pfff…Yeh right!

Sunday the 29th and here we are again for the first match after the break. Lot of talking had been going all this time along and we all entered Soridon hoping to see at least one point in our pocket .  Not an easy job of course against Stuttgart but Sankt Pauli needs these points so much that makes us believe it.  After all, we’re the ones who went against odds a couple of years ago and managed to stay alive in the season when everyone considered us dead right? The killer of giants right???  All of a sudden I got the weird feeling that we couldn’t even kill a bug on our shoulder.

The day looked promising. Something in the air I don’t know. But the fact is that getting out of home this Sunday morning it kind of felt like victory. Arriving at Soridon it was good enough to see that beside the usual Scum suspects we would have two friends from the Athens club, watching the game with us. The aura was getting bigger and it got even more big with the Scum Hoodies we brought to the joint. The aura, the laughs and the memories this game brought  in mind (in the same field, with the same team, back in 2010 which was the year we earned our promotion up to Bundesliga, we crushed those bastards  with four goals from Naki, Ebbers,Takyi and Hennings) , plus…the situation we are in, made our perspective to the game pretty simple. Three points or no one leaves this place!
