    FT, Union loses 3:4.

    Doesn't look good for Union, i fear they'll join the list of clubs from Berlin who once thought there could be a second pro club in Berlin and then dissapeared (Tasmania, Blau-Weiß 90, TeBe...).

    Might this change with the newly remodeled Olympicstadium?

    I'm no expert on Berlin soccer, but i don't think so. Even Hertha can't fill the Olympiastadion (the reconstruction is already completed) in most games and they and Union are the only pro (soccer) clubs in a 100 something km radius around Berlin.

    Yup, wird that there is only one BL1 soccer club in Berlin and Union failing badly atm, too.
    Maybe it is because in Berlin there is so much concurrence for soccer. They do have a successfull Basketball club (Alba Berlin), Football (Berlin Thunder), Hockey (Eisbären), not to mention the propably best cinemas in Germany, the biggest nightlife, operas, museums, ... at the other hand, that is not different in Munich. But would explain Mänchengladbach's attendance success: There is just not much more going on.
    Same in hannover, we have to high prices, with Wolfsburg successfull concurrent (well, more or less), and like in the last 15 years things you can do in the free time raised from 10 to 100.
    And it explains why LOK is so successfull: Too much unemployment ;-)

    Union for sure won't play in the Olympiastadion. Their place is East-Berlin (Köpenick). Some months ago there were speculation that Union could move to Jahn-Sportpark (Prenzlauer Berg, still East-Berlin but at the former border and thus much more central) but the supporters were all against such a move.

    Thanks for all the info.

    From what I understand, Union is still suffering from the old DDR curse?

    You'd think it'd be different in Berlin, more than a decade after the unification.

    Suffering is the wrong word. Their district and their Eastern background is a big part of their identity. Imagine Tottenham Hotspures FC moving from Northern London to Fulham. So the DDR thing is till a topic of course but it is much more due to their roots in Köpenick district that they don't wanna move.

    You can only have one favourite club (like only love one woman) but I do like Union somehow. Maybe it is only because I don't like Hertha. But I guess it is much more due to the unique fans, the pure stadium. Just not the "we-are -a-top-club-top-city-hollywood-like-capital-club"-attitude Hertha show.

    I just did some counting and with Ryan's 8 goals and the other two forward's 3 goals each, the three forwards combinded have 14 goals. The other 4 goals oustanding. That sort of on goal creationg concentration can really help an opposition's defence tighten down on Ryan (e.g In terms of scoring, Ryan is tied at 7th with goals and the other two forwards are at 38th place!.)
