Random Fact – The club are currently managerless after parting ways with Henrik Hansen in November.

Danish Monday night fitba again, this time at SønderjyskE (pronounced Sooneryoosk and meaning Southern Jutlandic), after last weeks damp squib in Herning I was hoping for a much better serving in Haderslev. I need not have bothered. This was equally as bad. It offered very little to stimulate my brain. What I can say is Vejle looked technically better had and have some fleet of foot players in their side. The game really was dire and again the sausage and beer was the highlight, the same as the previous week. But maybe that is not fair on Arbnor Mucolli who’s 93rd minute winning free kick was a sublime hit.

During the match my Aberdeen tourie got attention and I got speaking to Jesper Jensen an extremely affable man who used to live in Aberdeen and worked in Milltimber. He had also visited Pittodrie a few times inclusive of when we beat a strong Manchester United in ’99 just before they won the Champions League. The football chat with him far outdid goings on on the pitch for entertainment. He explained a lot about the club and why there are so many kids going about. On that subject I have never seen so many kids at one game. A very high percentage of the crowd in this compact wee ground were youths and it it is great to see. Even greater that the reason behind it is that SønderjyskE let them in for free. This due to if they train with a local club they can watch for free. In the long run this is a great way to gain support for a club. The formation date of the club may be reasonably recent but they have a long history with the original club Haderslev FK dating back to 1906 prior to the multisport club arriving 18 years ago. The old crest is seen all around the ground, on the walls and on the stewards jackets etc and there are still people wearing garb that can be seen too. Speaking of crests, the SønderjyskE badge on the scoreboard was only half present, but on further inspection it was clear that the scoreboard due to its placement had been twatted by errant shots a few times. As you can see I was paying attention to the game. The chat of football went further than just our own teams and on to football in general whether World Cup, Brondby being shit and just anything on the game really. It went on through to the moment Mucolli stepped up to hit the winner which funnily enough Jesper predicted was going in as soon as it was given. Once the net rippled Jesper wished me well and left and that was about that for the night. Terrible game made good by great company all because of my hat. Not a classic.

Entrance – 100DKK (£11.80)


Pie – 40DKK (£4.70) Sausage

Pint – 50DKK (£5.90), Black Widow, in the ground

At this point i was full of high hopes
The broken scoreboard
Sausage culture
Compact but tidy
The ultras were silenced late late on
