The shot below demonstrates some international solidarity at Wembley in April 2008, as Town fan Martin Robinson lines up with St Pauli and Town fan Joachim Hanssen to support the Mariners and oppose franchise football. The two became friends while working in Immingham in the early 1990s, explains Martin. "I have kept in touch with Joi over the years and he has seen Town play every couple of seasons or so. He managed to get to the play-off final in '98 and his last Town game was at Swindon last season, where he and some of his friends were less than impressed with our performance. However, they were amused with the singing of 'We piss on your fish' by the away following."
St Pauli, says Martin, "are the lesser known Hamburg team. They presently reside in the seconnd division in Germany but still get decent crowds of about 15,000. They have a distinct brown-coloured kit, and their fans are well known for their liberal, left-wing tendencies. St Pauli is a district of Hamburg which contains the red light area – the Rieperbahn – and is situated in the old dock area. I have managed to see them play whilst they were in the Bundesliga, and enjoyed their old-style ground with fans drinking beer on the terraces, plenty of singing, very unlike the sanitised stadiums in England now. Also it is very cheap to watch with tickets only costing about eight quid. If you are ever in Hamburg be sure to visit the 'Millerntor' where the fans are bedecked in scarves and badges, many showing the skull and crossbones motif which they have adopted."
"Joi has become a loyal Town fan as well as his love of St Pauli, so when we got to Wembley this year he straight away booked flights to London, and he and two other St Pauli fans travelled to Wembley, where we met and they thoroughly enjoyed the day despite the result," continues Martin. Thanks, folks. See you back there in 2009, maybe!
