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. Saying that he will be missed is just not able to describe the feeling. In fact nobody will be missed as much as Philipp Heerwagen, considering the total time that spent playing with FCSP all these years…

Business as usual

OK, under normal circumstances this should be full of things like “FFS”, 🤬, “&%^*%#@@)&$”, etc, etc. No. From now on and considering our excellent record (100% disqualification success against Liga 3 squads since the latest transformation of Liga 3 in 2008/9), we will start approaching 1st round DFB Pokal games as impossible missions or as friendly matches against clubs like Real Madrid or Barcelona. So, yesterday FCSP almost touched the dream of quaification to the 2nd Round but unfortunately the momentum of the opponent and the overtime fatigue got the better of us. To the squad: heads up boys, one of these years we’re going to make it happen and the celebration that will take place it will be really unprecedented! Regarding the rest of us, let’s have a look at what happened yesterday, read on…

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 😉

For fucks sake!

This was (and still is) a fuckin’ nightmare from the past… Having as an opponent a squad that has managed 3 consecutive relegations in the last 3 years (they’re still in Liga 3 thanks to 1860) FCSP forgot that in football (like any sport) you have to play in order to win and lost fair and square 2-1 to an excellent (considering the circumstances) Paderborn… Talk is cheap, so are excuses, what remains is probably the worst brown white Pokal fiasco of the last decade…

After 3 weeks without action, before even getting used to life without FCSP, today’s draw came to remind us that next season is already under way. SC Paderborn came out as first opponent and we must do something really stupid in order to say goodbye to the cup from August. There’s only one problem, we’re occasionally prone to stupidity in August 🙂

So What?

Ok this was tough from the beginning. Taking this game and moving on to the third round would bring fresh air to the swamp we’re in from the start of this season. . Of course someone aiming that high, against a team standing high in the Bundesliga ranks, could easily be characterized as super optimistic/delusional, considering the fact that Sankt Pauli hasn’t shown anything of worth from the beginning of the season. Hopes are hopes though and of course someone should  shut those nazi fuckers up, thinking they could come in Millerntor with an attitude (reports of Hertha nazi hools messing around with people at the station in Feldstraße). Bollocks.

Having already put through the shitty Lübeck business and having already escaped the tricky first round which tends to be the modern curse of FCSP, the perspective through which we’re facing this season’s has changed. Fiasco avoided, winning the Pokal is not the primary target anyway ( 🙂 ), everything from now on is nice to have, so, more or less, it’s back to the enjoyment of football 🙂 From this point of view, the visit of Hertha BSC towards the end of October to Millerntor is considered a first class opportunity 😉

About time…

A Friday night unlike the others. Ooh yes. Soridon was packed with Scum (sounds bad but in our case couldn’t be more awesome), and our friends from the Athens Club, all waiting to see our beloved Sankt Pauli crush those bastards from VfB Lübeck. (The shit those fuckers pulled at Schweinske cup back on 2012 will not be forgotten.)
