  1. A very wet & windy day yesterday in Bielefeld. Talk of game being cancelled with numerous pitch inspections. Kick-off delayed by half an hour to see if things got better, which they didn‘t but since 26.000 were already in the stadium including 3.000 in the sold out away section then the game went ahead. Conditions provided a leveler between top and hovering above the relegation spots. H96 should at least have taken a point back along the A2 to Hannover. Not to be however, with Yabo getting the winner in the 83rd minute. Result leaves H96 still sitting precariously close to the play-off / direct relegation spots. In saying that the overwhelming majority of upcoming games are against fellow @rse end of the table strugglers. Next up, home to Holstein Kiel on Monday.
  2. Woman in the queue yesterday, with a H96 top, Bielefeld on the back and a Hamburg scarf tied around a wrist!
  3. H96, SV Hamburg (and also Bielefeld) all have a ‚fan-friendship‘ type of thing with each other. Personally I find it all a bit cringe-worthy, with shit-loads of half & half scarves, people wearing the scarf of one team round their neck and tying the other teams scarf round their wrist. Only upside of all this is the police presence is reduced and also not as stern as usual. 12.000 Hamburg fans in attendance for the 1st Nord Derby between both clubs to take place in Hannover. (H96 got gubbed 3-0 in Hamburg last September). To cut a long story short, typical derby football, 1-0 for H96 in the 53rd by Teuchert. 5 minutes added on, with Hamburg getting the equaliser in the 96th (sic) minute! An unexpected point, but still a f**k, f**k, fuckity, f**k moment! Next up a trip to Bielefeld.
  4. A much needed 3 points for H96 yesterday, as they deservedly won 3-1 down at Greuther Fürth. 12°C, blue sky & [emoji295]️as well as full-strength [emoji481] in the away end. A fairly uneventful 1st half, with Haraguchi getting the 1-0 lead just before the half-time whistle. 2nd half Elez contrived to get himself sent off for a 2nd yellow, conceding a penalty in the process. For the 1st time ever, think I saw Ron-Robert actually save one! Lead extended courtesy of Teuchert with 20 minutes to go, although an og from Anton a few minutes later meant the usual squeaky bum time for the rest of the game. 19 year old Stehle put the icing on his debut by securing all 3 points with his goal in the 96th minute. Next up home to Hamburg! The small HSV against the big HSV. Game already sold out.
  5. Think it‘s season ticket numbers plus whatever‘s sold on top. No way it is actual attendees. I‘m in N7 (lower section of the home end), and the amount of space available in a ‚sold out‘ (rail seating/„safe“ standing) section is noticeable. The game against Hamburg is already sold out. The only other home games that will sell out will be St. Pauli and probably Bochum on the last game day.
  6. Hopefully not, but struggling to see where the points will come from over the next set of games. Away to Fürth (4th) Home to Hamburg (2nd) Away to Bielefeld (1st) Think the two games after these, home to Kiel & away to Nürnberg, will give the best indication as to whether it‘s mid-table mediocrity or down at the bottom fighting relegation.
  7. An eventful last 10 minutes as H96 went from 0-1 to 2-1 before Wiesbaden got a last minute equaliser to send theIr small number of fans a bit happier down the road. Bit of understandable anger creeping into the feeling on the terraces, with the team just 2 points above the relegation/play-off spots. Next up a Sunday trip down to Fürth.
  8. Got tickets for Morrissey gig in Köln on the 9th March.
  9. First time at the Continental Arena in Regensburg as H96 went down 1-0 in an absolute crap game. New signing on loan from Alaves, ex Celtic player, John Guidetti made his debut. For all he did he might as well have been standing next to me. Miserable conditions with snow/sleet through the 1st half, requiring a switch to the orange ball midway through. Regensburg took the lead courtesy of a penalty deep into extra-time. Result leaves H96 hovering above the play-off/relegation spots. Next up home to fellow struggler Wehen Wiesbaden which has a bit of a 6 pointer feel about it!
