Houston, we have a problem…

In fact, we have two of them: a) a squad, that a couple of weeks ago was supposedly hunting for promotion, getting humiliated and eventually spared by a squad that is currently fighting for survival and b) people in the brown white block whistling and throwing beer to the squad after full time… Aye, not to forget, you also have suddenly good numbers of people (at least in the SM) asking for…Kauczinski to be sacked… Sad times, if you ask me…

No complaints

Reality check yesterday evening for the Boys in Brown. In front of 50.000 people (5.000 brown white) Köln made it look easy for them in the 2nd half, showing that they are at least one level above us overall, however we fought passionately, we never quit the game and we showed everyone that we didn’t go there only for the sake of the trip. Unfortunately, sometimes these are not enough, especially when you’re not in the top shape that you were supposed to be. No complaints overall, Boys in Brown play on, the rest read on.

You reach the end of the game, being somehow 2-0 ahead. You then concede 2 goals in less than 2′ (85″!) but you still manage to win the game with a penalty on 94′. Monday evening stories of football madness someone could say. No my friend, at least no when you are an FCSP fan 😄

Welcome ba…EAT THIS!

Back in business for 2019 but not in the best possible way. Neither luck nor the unbelievable incompetence of the assistant referee were able to save us yesterday against Darmstadt. Imagine a match where you manage to stay ahead until the closing 10′, you eventually lose it and everybody reacts like you were trailing from the beginning. That’s the story of yesterday’s 2-1, read on 😎

End of round 1 with 31 😎

This will be a carefree 2nd round. FCSP completed the 1st on Saturday with a 2-0 victory over Greuther Fürth, reached 31 points (only 9 away from the magic 40 😆), guaranteeing us a remaining season free of high pressure pills, visits to the doctors and all weird stuff that happens when you’re flirting with disaster. The Boys in Brown did actually better than that. Seems that somehow we’re serious promotion play-off candidates, sharing the nomination with Union, 4 pts ahead of the remaining competition. No idea what will happen during the 2nd round but screw the future, these will be a fine Winter break 😎

Acrophobia 😋

Alright. you Boys in Brown, you can open up your eyes again now, these two matchdays of agony are over – 6 pts from the top, 4 pts from the promotion play-offs place and with 4th place all ours, normality has been restored 😋 (A little more) seriously now, there’s some kind of phobia here but it’s not about fear of heights. It’s called lack of self confidence, it’s the thing that drives football squads crawling back in their holes for safety towards the end of games, only to get trapped in there and eventualy pay the price. FCSP 1 – SGD 1, almost like last week, next time will be better 😉

A little more than we deserved 😉 (REVISITED)

Hell yeah! Another tricky escape, this time from Schauinsland-Reisen-Arena, thanks to an Allagui header (!), a minute or so after his entrance in the pitch 🙂 Surreal situation in the table, with FCSP having climbed to the outrageous 3rd place and already voices (ffs, get serious people 😂) about promotion being heard. Scum suggests composure and reminds that the distance until the magic number 40 has been reduced to 21 😎

Still the City Boss

…and in case somebody has any doubts, a look at their faces after full time whistle tells the whole story. FCSP got a draw and had the chances even to win the match in the end, in a game clearly less intense than the last one in there. Yeah, numbers say 72-28 possession for H$V but this superiority not only didn’t convert to real stress for us but we almost robbed the house in the end. Once more undefeated, once more clean sheet at Volksparkstadion, now you big (Dino) birds come over to Millerntor ^^
