S.E.S Ball

Season 2018-19 fixtures announced. A journey that starts from the tiny cradle of Evil (Magdeburg, let’s punish these bastards before they even start talking ^^) and finishes at Fürth – last time the Sonderzug stopped there it was for the promotion to Bundesliga celebrations, with some 9.000 brown whites participating 🙂 Somewhere in between of course reside the two instances of the derby that we have so badly missed, we did this back then, hopefully we’ll do it again now… One thing you should know is (<copy paste from last season section>) that, as usual, there are no specific dates/times at this point, it’s all conceptual at a match weekend level. This means that anybody who’s planning a trip at this stage should book at least from early Friday to early Tuesday (</copy paste from last season section>). This does not apply to the last 2 matchdays (all games are on Sunday).

Brown white appointmens follow in detail below, start checking out, see each other along the way 😉

First of all, happy new season everybody, as yesterday’s draw signaled the beginning of 2018-19 activities. Of course this is only typical and in essence nothing more than a connection to the things to come, before a long period of slumber and mostly transfer rumours that will be interrupted once again shortly on June 29th for the Liga 2 schedule draw. However, we now know our 1st round opponent: it’s SSV Wehen Wiesbaden and after the first (ignorant, read below) Scum reaction, is considered, especially considering our Pokal history (you don’t even need history, just look back at last year ^^). one of the opponents that we certainly wouldn’t prefer, read on 😉

Home Safe 🙂

 

…and they lived happily ever after… this standard fairytale conclusion maybe not precise enought to describe the overall situation (hard times will come again) but fits like a glove when coming to describe the relief, hapiness and the resulting euphoria (natural and comparable to drugs 😀 ) that Sunday’s match caused. Yeah, the Boys in Brown stood up to the standards when it was mostly required, did what they had to do in the pitch, secured Liga 2 and gave us one of the best weekends that we had in the last years, read on 🙂

Talk is cheap

Well, well, here we are… ^^ From a situation where everything was looking under control (people were asking Kauczinski about promotion on PKs 😀 ) some weeks ago to a point when we all start doing calculations about the points required to secure the league. The fact that this change is also a result of a crazy situation with most of the squads squashing within a quite narrow point range is not an excuse. It’s not only about our place in the table, it’s also about the football we play…

Not bad, not bad at all

Once more without a victory in Millerntor but this time was different. Having thrown in the bin already a significant amount of points, a victory over FCN who has set already one foot in the Bundesliga and scores almost always and everywhere, would be something slightly exceeding expectations. We didn’t won but we made the something extra required by stopping them and creating at the same time the opportunities to actually win this. Are we happy? Hell, we are 🙂

Back in business after the winter break in pure style, Fuckin’ Hell (especially for Dynamo 😀 ). A really smart and focused (alright, most of the time) FC Sankt Pauli had an excellent and easier than expected (at least by us) evening, inside an anything but friendly environment (anyone who has visited DDV Stadion even once knows ^^) and forced the yellow terrace mob to boo their squad and start leaving long before the final whistle. Too early to start jumping into conclusions about Kauczinski‘s new squad and stuff but certain promises were given in the pitch yesterday evening 🙂

Jaaaaaaaaaa!!!

Finally a win at Millerntor! FCSP managed to get the 3 points, prevailing on Monday night 2-1 over VfL Bochum right at the moment when everything was looking bleak due to the consecutive bad results and the gradual annihilation of the squad in terms of personnel. No, we didn’t play world class football and towards the end of the game we gave rights to the opponent to question the outcome of a game that looked certain from the beginning of the 2nd half (certainty can apply to normal squads, no such things for FCSP 😀 ) but what matters is that we got 3 very significant 3 pts at the time we needed them the most. Let’s exhale and go home for (football and not only) holidays 😉

I was lucky enough to be inside Vonovia Ruhrstadion last May when Ewald Lienen named with a gesture Olaf Janßen as his successor (in fact he was nominated already some months ago), in front of a blissful guest block, during Sonderzug 2017. Now, almost 6 months later, the story ends with the worst possible ending…
