    HH has been pulling some strings while out on one of his dinner dates with Brady 😁

  • John says:

    Blooming heck that place looks welcoming lmao. What was it before a football stadium? The Adolph Area 😂😂

    I’m beginning to think tbh that the pre-season is now shaping up nicely and the idea of avoiding the long haul is appealing to me.

  • Tel Boy says:

    If you go in will you ever come back out again.The Adolf and Kampf part of the name is a bit disconcerting Lol

  • HamburgHammer says:

    Don’t get me started. I wish it could have been my Hamburg based club Concordia, but it wasn’t to be. Altona are now saying there will be strong segregation on the day and apparently they will only allow English fans into the West Ham block, I tried to explain to them there will also be Scandinavian, Dutch, German or Belgian Hammers fans travelling to the game, I wonder if they will be kept out.
    Adolf Jaeger by the way was a club legend for Altona, their version of Bobby Moore.
    And Adolf was, as you can imagine, a fashionable name for boys in those days…

  • Stan The Man says:

    So tell me then HH do these Altona fans have a bit of a reputation if segregation is needed?
    Also are they on a par with Concordia or in a higher league?

    • HamburgHammer says:

      Stan, Altona and Concordia were both fighting for promotion in the league last season, Altona got promoted eventually, so they will be in the 4th tier now with Concordia remaining in the 5th tier for now.
      After their promotion regulations stipulate that Altona need to sort out segregation and it will be in effect for the West Ham game I understand.
      They are a loyal, but feisty bunch and some of them are extremly passionate to put it mildly…

      • Stan The Man says:

        I see HH i didnt know they were Concordia league rivals.So they are not your favourite team then lol
        I did a little googling about them and saw they have a feisty fan base as you put it.It could be fun filled when our chaps turn up in Hamburg then.
        Ok thanks for filling me in my friend.

        • HamburgHammer says:

          Pleasure. I will be in the West Ham end, so if some Altona nutters want to be silly enough to try something on at a friendly/preseason game I know they will get a response they may not like, from both the police and West Ham…

          But I hope things will stay calm on the day…it’s a bloody preseason game!
