With the 2-0 defeat against VfL Wolfsburg, the fear of relegation at Schalke, especially in the ranks of the fans, has grown again. In order to show and give the team the support that cannot be given in the corona crisis, although it would be so important at the moment, a large video message is now planned – from the ranks of the fans, supported by the social media team of Clubs.
It was another sobering appearance that FC Schalke 04 showed against VfL Wolfsburg on Saturday afternoon. The game was already decided after 24 minutes, due to the poor performance in the first half and especially in the first 30 minutes, an early and well-deserved 2-0 lead was enough for the Wolves.
In the end, even trying to stand up in halftime two on the part of Royal Blue did not bring anything: whether it is more frustrating or a little more hopeful that the team was able to pull itself together again after the double setback – and still remained without a goal – is one of the big questions after that Game. One thing is clear: the fear of relegation has grown again. For this reason, the fans now want to help where there is currently help: by conveying the support that it can only be done together.
After the first reactions, perceptions and opinions about the game had been discussed on social media, some S04 followers on Twitter came up with the idea of creating a video message as large as possible and sending it to the team. The planned tenor: Clearly positive messages with which you want to show that you support the team in this doubly difficult time.
It is difficult to understand who started the idea in principle, but in the end it is all the more important who wants to support it. The two Twitter users Funkyhunter and Maaj1904 have agreed to cut the clips sent in, which should not exceed ten seconds if possible, to make the planned video. The FIFA YouTuber ‘GamerBrother’ (unsurprisingly also a Schalke fan) has signed up to ensure that the project has as wide a reach as possible.
Another important step: The miners’ social media department has already thanked you for this action and also announced that it would offer support and remain “in close contact with one another” – this help is of course needed to finally send the video to the team To be able to approach it so that not only individual players get to see it via their respective social media accounts.
With all the justified frustration and anger that the fans have had to endure for the past ten months, plus the fear of sporting insignificance and relegation, it would be a good and important sign if such a project from the pen of the fans would take shape should assume. Due to the empty stadiums, it has also not been possible for over eight months to get in touch with the team – neither during the games nor during the usually numerous public training sessions.
It will be exciting to see whether this idea will bear fruit. It is the expression of (almost?) The last hope on the part of the blue-and-white supporters to support the deeply ailing team. Yesterday after the game, Mark Uth showed how much this may be necessary with his honest words: “I could go into the dressing room and cry.” In order for such a meaningful sense of achievement to come about as soon as possible, the fans now want to take the wheel.
