DThe moment the lightning table lifted the whole city onto the podium, Dirk Fischer experienced first hand at Volksparkstadion. The president of the Hamburg Football Association had jumped from his seat in the HSV box when Douglas Santos fired on the Cologne goal four minutes before the final whistle of the second division top game and Pierre-Michel Lasogga then completed the rebound to 1: 0.
With the victory of the traditional club jumped to number one, and the Cologne fell from the rise ranks, which are firmly in Hamburg's hands since Monday. HSV: one. St. Pauli: two. It is not better. Really? While everything is rosy at the former Chaos Club St. Pauli, HSV is plagued by financial worries.
