... also cup night in Germany

 

Matt Penney starts for St Pauli at home to Eintracht Frankfurt  :rolleyes:

Another 90 mins in a great atmosphere. What an experience Penney is having. No wonder he's loving it

Yeah, we need to bring him back to the half empty Hillsborough to play Wigan on a wet Tuesday night.

Attendances are generally pretty solid - hats off in particular to Dynamo Dresden who took 35,000 away fans (not a misprint) to Hertha Berlin tonight. Lost on penalties after a 3-3 draw.

 

St Pauli v Frankfurt attendance now confirmed at 29,500 - which is a full house, give or take

They obviously aren't hampered by any SAG restrictions

SAG would have a fit at any of the games I’ve been to out here.

We have given zero minutes to any player under 23 this season and I dont think any of this lot will be filling Monk with much joy either unfortunately.

Exactly, Penneys living the dream.

Playing in front of 29500 fans/ ultras

I'm sure he's enjoying his time there - regular games, big crowds, exotic locations  :rolleyes:

I'm just hoping their results pick up as the mood from the terraces might alter things

 

Same applies to VfL as it's more likely Joost van Aken is in the shop window there. Success breeds confidence etc

 

Jack Stobbs? Bit of a knife edge there, I reckon

He's not getting the game time and that's the one thing he needs most of all

 

Connor Kirby is getting plenty of game time - he's clocked up 17 appearances already

But Macclesfield are in the news again today for being unable to pay their staff and players ... again

Plus their form is patchy at best - still, it's all good experience  :mellow:

I've been to Dresden, really interesting and nice place. I'd recommend it for anybody going over the East side of Germany. The football club as well has a pretty interesting history. 

 

Still not been to a German game which is criminal really. Our lass is from Saarland though and I think the nearest Bundesliga team is Mainz which is 2 hours away.

Was just there a couple of weeks ago, yeah it’s a brilliant city.
 

German games and the atmosphere are a double-edged sword - I did the real Leipzig derby (Chemie v Lokomotiv, sod Red Bull) a few weeks ago and I got to enjoy the bonkers atmosphere from the open terrace behind the goal. On the downside, the relationship between clubs, footballing authorities and police is dreadful, even worse than England, to the point where there were no away fans allowed because they couldn’t agree on an allocation.

Who ...?

 

No.4   SSV  Jahn  Regensburg

Regensburg ... another beauty spot set in the heart of Bavaria and regarded as Germany's 'best preserved medieval city'

Built on the banks of the Danube and located between Munich, Nuremberg and the Czech border

It looks like the kind of place you'd expect to see decorating the front of a biscuit tin  :biggrin:

Current population puts it on a par with ...... Huddersfield ... but I think all comparisons should probably end there 

Like most present-day clubs, SSV Jahn trace their origins back to the 19th c. but football would come later

Also like many of their rivals, the club would regularly re-invent itself over the years -  most recently around the turn of this century

But struggling away in the 4th tier and on the brink of going bust, it took moving to a new 15k capacity stadium in 2015 to give 'em the boost they needed

They won successive promotions, first to 3.Liga and then via the 2017 play-off to 2.Bundesliga at the expense of 'local' rivals 1860 Munchen *

Now they've established a foothold in the 2nd tier things are looking up

 

 

 

* They actually drew the home leg 1-1 and then won 2-0 in Munich in front of over 62,000

  So given their status and the timing of those games (May 2017) perhaps they have more in common with Huddersfield than I thought  :dry:

1st November

Jahn Regensburg  3-3  VfL Osnabruck        (att:  10,179)

However many VfL fans made the near 750mile round trip for a Friday teatime kick-off, they're probably glad they did

JvA's side boasted the best defence in the division and the joint worst scoring record, so a six-goal thriller was never really on the cards

SSV Jahn were probably worth their half time lead, but to concede a second just before the break was hard on VfL

The second half looked like a different game though. VfL scored early on and although they soon trailed by 3-1 they were never out of it

At 3-3 with about 20mins left I'd have said there was only one likely winner ...

So ... VfL extend their winless run to seven games but I bet the long journey home seems a little shorter

2nd November

St Pauli  2-2  Karlsruher SC         (att:  29,546)

Jos must've been walking under ladders again

His side egded this one and were comfortably 2-0 up after an hour thanks to two 2nd half penalties

Then KSC pulled one back on 86mins and equalised in the 91st - they might even have won it at the death!

Matt Penney started as wing-back but was subbed off, presumably injured, after half an hour

Hope it's nothing serious  :unsure:

That is what I've heard. Perhaps 3 games in a week was to much for him. On a positive note it shows what an important player for St Pauli he became.

 

Btw. He bossed 2'nd half in a cup game against Eintracht, team that "murdered" Bayern Munich today.

 

In my opinion he is a special talent that we must nurture.

2nd November contd ...

Carlisle  2-1  Macclesfield           (att:  3,880)

Definitely the theme of the day - concede late goals/ throw away valuable points

Connor Kirby & co perhaps did this in less dramatic fashion than Wednesday and St Pauli

But they were leading, missed a penalty and then conceded a scrappy equaliser in 1st half injury time

Had another goal disallowed after the break before Carlisle grabbed an 82nd minute winner

 

 

 

Motherwell  2-1  Livingston             (att:  4,423)

A penalty for Livi brought them level on the hour, but they too conceded a second goal with about seven minutes left to play

Jack Stobbs watched it all happen from the bench once again

I dunno, you're a goal down and the clock's ticking. When do you bring on your subs?  :mellow:

Yeah! We’ve got the option of bringing him back in January though if Monk wants to have a look at him.

He's doing well in Germany and getting played. Doubt monk will play him here. How many minutes do our u23s get in the first team, a big fat zero!

8th November

St Pauli  1-1  VfL Bochum           (att:  29,546)

Which is, curiously, the exact same attendance figure given for their previous home game  :mellow:

Either means the game sold out (again) or else they can't be bothered adding the numbers up anymore

Anyroad, Matt Penney missed this one through injury - as we thought he might

And in his absence St Pauli dropped more home points to a side currently sitting in the bottom three

 

 

 

9th November

VfL Osnabruck  1-0  Stuttgart           (att:  15,801)

By contrast, VfL ended their winless run with a hard-fought victory over a side currently in the top three

Change of formation saw Joost van Aken starting left CB in a back four

The goal came after 4mins and it was all hands to the pump for rest of it

Although Stuttgart did seem to run out of steam towards the end

The win sees VfL move above St Pauli and up to 9th place - but there's a top 3 and a bottom 3, not much to choose between the rest
