I finally had the privilege of witnessing the legend that is Frank Zander last Saturday before Hertha BSC’s final home match of the season against Schalke 04. The mulleted, moustachioed, über-ginger-wonder lead the crowd in a rousing rendition of Nur Nach Hause.

The Olympiastadion was heaving, easily the busiest I’ve seen it this season during the 9 matches I’ve been to:

Hertha BSC 1-1 Arminia Bielefeld
Hertha BSC 2-2 Wolfsburg
Hertha BSC 2-1 Stuttgart
Hertha BSC 1-0 Hoffenheim
Hertha BSC 2-1 Köln
Hertha BSC 2-1 Frankfurt
Hertha BSC 1-0 Bayer Leverkusen
Hertha BSC 2-0 Bochum
Hertha BSC 0-0 Schalke

That’s 9 of 17 home matches attended – not a bad return given that I live in south east London! Roll on next season where hopefully I can increase that number…
