Kauczinski & Stöver OUT – Luhukay & Rettig “IN”

Bomb exploded at the neighborhood this morning with Kauczinski/Stöver being “released” and Luhukay/Rettig (?) filling up for them until the end of the season. Nobody expected a move of such magnitude, remains only to be seen if this will be proven beneficiary for the Club or not, discussion just starting and will be around for a long time.

Earlier today, Philipp Heerwagen‘s transfer to FC Ingolstadt was announced, with a contract valid until the end of the season. This is a sad day for the Club (wanted to keep him), for us fans and in a way even for Philipp himself who probably had to make the hard choice between staying with the Club that he loves or finally having the chance to play, at least for a while, football before the end of his career.

It was a Saturday morning, early March 2014, a sunny day at Hoheluft, watching our U23 playing against someone ( 🙂 ) and having fun with friends with booze coming from Victoria Klause (the excellent stadium bar). I can still recall myself back in that day, talking with a friend about Thomas Meggle (coaching passionately from a chair right next to the sideline) and saying with my usual idiot-impersonating-the-connoisseur “experienced” look “this is the next FCSP head coach”. Some 2 and a half years after, with all the things that have happened in between, the only thing remaining really cool about this, is just the memory…

Winter break maybe horrible for the obvious reasons, however represents also a chance to break the weekend2weekend routine and take a look at some of the ongoing Club issues.

Sudden development tsunami in Hamburg! Yes, you heard right: Rachid Azzouzi has been released from his duties, Thomas Meggle has been promoted to Sports Director and…Ewald Lienen is the new Head Coach of FCSP! This not just a surprise, this is like the entire Sankt Pauli Cosmos is turning upside down! The only thing sure is that we have a brand new ball game and looks like that there are no intermediate scenarios this time, this is Death or Glory…
