FC Sankt Pauli – the soccer membership within the red-light district of Hamburg; a transvestite chairman; terraces populated by means of punks, pimps and prostitutes; a membership run via anarchists, united less than the cranium and crossbones flag. this can be the cliché that has been lazily peddled, one that draws clueless stag events from the Reeperbahn to the Millerntor stadium. yet it's no longer the true St Pauli. In Pirates, Punks & Politics writer Nick Davidson places the checklist directly, intermingling the background of FC St. Pauli, and the district it represents, with an account of his personal involvement with the membership. again in 2007 Davidson travelled together with his father to observe his first video game on the Millerntor. What he stumbled on strengthened his religion in soccer. This e-book is going past the stereotype to find the true St. Pauli – a membership with a passionate, left-wing fan base that has made a stand opposed to, fascism, racism, sexism and either in soccer and wider society. because the writer and numerous others have came upon, the Millerntor can also be a spot which welcomes with open palms fanatics looking an alternative choice to the rabid commercialisation of soccer somewhere else, encouraging them to stick for hours after the ultimate whistle and immerse themselves within the bright fan tradition. learn this e-book and fall in love with a special form of soccer. the entire author's royalties might be donated to the 1910.V. Museum, FC St. Pauli museum venture.
