The calendar’s starting to fill up… With the close-season coming to an end focus soon switches to the 2013/14, and we still haven’t finished our summer yet!!!
In just over two weeks time the Bundesliga restarts, so here’s hoping for an improvement on last season for FC St Pauli. As it turned out, the threat of relegation was a false prospect until FCSP’s great win against Eintracht and then MSV Duisburg later being denied a license in Bundesliga-2.
One of the few games I went to last season was a trip to Duisburg. Had a great evening in Websters and was actually quite fond of the place in general – plus, there aren’t that many stadia in Germany that can be driven in a day from UK. I fear that MSV might be doomed, as a drop to Bundesliga-3 simply makes their task even tougher if they can survive Bankruptcy.
So, 19th July sees FC St Pauli host 1860 München and I’m rather looking forward to a return to the Zeitgeist…
..then I have a two-day wait for something that was only announced this week; AFC Bournemouth hosting a friendly against Real Madrid!
Summer 2013, bring it on!!!
