Read what the biggest Eintracht fan in the district, Dorfen's former mayor Sepp Sterr, experienced.

And what other fans from the district say about the Euroleague triumph.

Subsequent shipments will be delayed by a week.

No, it's not due to a "Wetten, dass..?" show that was too long or an ARD focal point.

We just can't - as promised - talk about goalkeeping mistakes today when we've just seen Kevin Trapp in action.

The announced sports whisper "Bailouts, bad luck and parade breakdowns, part 2" is therefore only available next week.

Today we want to talk about unity.

No, dear mountain learners, you are not meant for once - even if you were right at your championship celebration last year and there are photos with SVE scarves all over the world.

It's about the Frankfurt SBU, which by the way doesn't just take on every newcomer (i.e. success fan).

One even tweeted: "I'm noting down all the names of fans from other clubs trying to suck up now."

We don't care.

First of all, we want to remind you that we do have a close unity connection in the district.

Or wasn't our ex-Dorfener Werner Lorant part of the victorious UEFA Cup team in 1980?

And besides, we do have our own Eintracht Ultras.

For example Sergio Linke, player-coach of the Walpertskirchen second team and "Eintracht fan since childhood", as he says himself.

His uncle and cousin from Neu-Isenburg brought him to it.

“Whenever we visited there, we watched the training.

When the new stadium was built, I was already on the construction site.” He watched the Euroleague final against Glasgow Rangers at home with a few friends.

He couldn't stay calm at the finale.

"And I almost died on penalties." Luckily, things turned out differently.

Would have been stupid too, because Sergio Linke also had his birthday on the final day.

Yes, sans, the people of Frankfurt: just give their fan the Euro title for their birthday.

He used to be smiled at in Erding, but that changed with the cup win against Bayern in 2018 at the latest.

How else can you tell that Linke is a real Eintracht fan?

His favorite player is Ioannis Amanatidis, hero of a not so glorious era.

"And today it's Martin Hinteregger," he says.

What connects him with Richard Hehenberger.

The soccer player from Kirchasch is even certain “that I am the most blatant Martin Hinteregger fan in Bavaria.

If Martl had played, we would have been 3-0 up at half-time,” says Hehenberger.

who, by the way, only watches the Frankfurt games since Hinteregger has been playing there.

So many roads lead to the Römer in Frankfurt.

Sepp Sterr was exactly there, which hardly surprises anyone who knows the former mayor of Dorfen.

During his years in office, he had a Eintracht sticker on his company car.

It's no wonder that Heiner Müller-Ermann, who is not necessarily on the same page politically, immediately congratulated him on his great triumph.

He has been a fan for 69 years because the term "Eintracht" fascinated him at the time, says Sterr.

As a boy he experienced the national championship final against Real Madrid (3:7) and celebrated Fred Schaub's winning goal in the UEFA Cup against Gladbach in 1980.

"But this year - that's unique".

That's why he celebrated directly with hundreds of thousands in the epicenter of the euphoria.

Bitter defeat in the promotion final

His grandson had booked the train journey - and it was thanks to his grandfather that he was allowed to be right at the Römer.

It wasn't that easy.

In the afternoon after the big game, the two arrived in Frankfurt, where they first stayed in one of the access roads.

"Everything was already closed at the Römer," says Sterr.

Yes, yes, he says, it was a bit chaotic - but that was the endearing chaos.

Around 9:30 p.m. Sepp Sterr had enough.

No, he didn't go home, but in the direction of the Romans.

In fact, the security let the elderly gentleman through.

"But not without my nephew." So he too was allowed to experience everything up close: Fischer's pathos, Hinteregger's sayings, Trapp's songs.

Of course he also sang himself, says Sterr, who is already looking forward to the Supercup.

"10.

August”, it comes like a shot from a pistol.

Liverpool or Real?

Doesn't matter.

"If we were to play right now," says Sterr, the chances wouldn't be that bad.

By the way, the game will take place in Helsinki.

No, he won't do that to himself, he says.

The hardships are too great.

Even this trip to Frankfurt was exhausting.

Whereby:

The next day Sepp Sterr was jogging again.

Even sans the Eintracht fans.

This column is dedicated to our colleague Gert Seidel, the best commentator and second-biggest Eintracht fan in the district, who died much too young.
