Darmstadt just made the 2-1 against St.Pauli in the 89th minute. Let's quote Vanni again3 points for St Pauli tonight and they'll be top of the table. Tomorrow Sandhausen will park the bus at the Volksparkstadion and take a point off HSV, while Union Berlin do the business over Koln.

hope you're right. Normally when I mock about other clubs HSV loses the next day, too. I really don't know how we'll come out of the winter break, have a strange feeling about this game. I'm off to the Volkspark in an hourBut anyway, you lot should beat Sandhausen tonight
I hope that Union wins or at least draws this match. Tbh I even want Union and St.Pauli get #2 and #3 and both promoted (together with HSV). Because then suddenly Germany's biggest cities have both 2 teams in the Bundesliga.but Koln's game tomorrow is a toughie, and hard to call. Yesterday I was thinking that a Union Berlin win would be better for St.Pauli's (slim) promotion chances but that was before they lost the game* and now I'm not so sure. U. Berlin are only three points off St.Pauli, and they'll be level on 34 if they win the game.
That'll be a cracker. It's a Monday night match. Maybe I'll watch it at the Millerntor (if I can find my Pirate Shirt and Cap )But that's not all....next St Pauli match is at home to Union Berlin........Hmmm, I think I want Koln to win now, or failing that, a draw.
Most relegated club from the Bundesliga. They even were relegated the season after the won the German title in 1968. Must be the 10th time now when they go down again if I remember this right.(what a yo-yo club Nürnberg have become).
Of course we make it to Berlin. End of April against UnionHope you make it to Berlin (you won't).
Vanni: From where did you get the impression that HSV is a moneybag? They are not. Actually HSV has debts/liabilities in the amount of 85 million Euro. OK, that's not much if you compare this with some top clubs in Europe but St.Pauli has not even half of it, so they're nominally "richer" Last business year HSV had a negative balance of 5.5m Euro (btw the 8th year in a row they had a negative balance although we have 50.000+ crowds on average but the money from the entrance fees is nowadays not the main factor anymore.It's all panning out just like we were all expecting to in the second division isn't it. That is, moneybags FC K$$n and H$V H£mburg€r to go up this season.
We got only a lucky 1-0 win due to a slapstick goal in the 84th minute where Dresden's goalie made a fool of himself (although he was great otherwise for the whole match), I haven't expected it anymore that we would score a goal but when you get such a gift it would be rude to neglect it .More of the same to come tonight when poor D.Dresden go to HSV and let in 3 goals or something.
On second thoughts, I hope HSV smash the racist fcukers 10 nil
Thanks for the detailed report. Totally forgot that this was the weekend where you came "Heim ins Reich" . How was the atmosphere at the Bremer Brücke? HSV has not so good memories there lately.Well Düsseldorf, thank fuck they've got the football because they have bugger all else to offer!
Was a nice train ride to Osnabrück on Friday to witness the 3. Liga league leaders lose against all odds to Sonnenhof Grossaspach 0-2. Not quite sure who was at which end of the table while watching this game.
The following day, I took a much shorter train ride to Duisburg to attend KFC Uerdingen vs 1860 Munich (if I understand this right Uerdingen have been relocated to MSV Duisburg's ground just for this season as their local ground is being renovated). Possibly one of the worst first half I ever watched but the second half was good. The "hosts" (ground was more than half empty) opened the scoring from a shot via a deflection but we equalised a couple of minutes later from a free-kick. Went down to 10 men on the hour mark but held on for an important point away from home. Still only 4 points from the drop so looks like promotion will have to wait another season. Let's hope we don't fuck it up and go down back to Regionalliga Bayern in 2019/20.
Which leads us to yesterday for F95's game vs Stuttgart. It felt like a Pokal game tbh, that's how bad Stuttgart were. At 0-0, the hosts' superiority was obvious and the scoreline really illustrates the difference between those 2 sides. The worst part is that Fortuna are not that good but VfB are this bad! They have great ultras who came in numbers at Düsseldorf (a couple of them stayed at the same hotel as mine) and I thought they didn't give them enough shit for such a dreadful performance. Seriously where is this club going?
It has been a thoroughly entertaining weekend in the Buli too what with Hoffenheim pegging back Dortmund to a 3-3 draw after being 0-3 down with 10 minutes to go and Hertha BSC destroying Gladbach at home. However, one result that caught my eye was Hanover beating Nürnberg 2-0 meaning that the Frankens are pretty much destined for bottom spot while the play-off spot will be strongly contested between VfB and Hanover. Frankly, I'm not sure if I want Stuttgart to stay up. This squad is so Buli Zwei level that staying up would be pretty senseless imo.
Overall a good weekend. Could have done with a bit of sunshine but hey ho.
"The Dino (aka HSV) is (eating) shit" Tbh had to laugh about it when I saw it in the stadium but I can't stand pyro in the stands. Fucking smoke for quite a time.By the way, there's a video on Youtube of the Dynamo fans unfurling that huge dragon banner on Monday. Nice bit of choreography and all that but what is the message they're trying to put across? It's definitely not something complimentary to HSV that's for sure!
Cheers. Re. pyro, I'm with you. I don't mind flares and smoke bombs and the like, in fact I think it helps with the general atmosphere at football grounds but then again the smoke does take quite a long time to clear. Plus, and far more importantly, I always think of those fans with breathing problems. Just because I don't suffer from asthma doesn't mean that nobody else does. In other words, fans in favour of pyro at stadiums are being selfish."The Dino is (eating) shit" Tbh had to laugh about it when I saw it in the stadium but I can't stand pyro in the stands.

approx:Mit dem Gegentor haben sie sich wohl eher selbst in den Mund geschissen
^ That's like a '2 in 1special' so no it's not the one(s) I did watch. It's these two below, IIRC because quite a few videos do look very similar and probably show the same footage"The Dino (aka HSV) is (eating) shit" Tbh had to laugh about it when I saw it in the stadium but I can't stand pyro in the stands.

edit. just looked for it at yt. Do you mean this one?
