Dirty Tackle

German fans use arrows to show scoring-impaired team where goal is

Dirty Tackle

Sitting at the bottom of the Regionalliga Nord -- the fourth tier of German football -- Magdeburg have given their fans a collective headache this season. But as the three-time East German champions try to avoid relegation, their fans have employed a system to help them get out of their recent five-match scoring drought.

During a match against Berliner AK 07, a group of fans stood behind the visiting team's goal, each with a large, brightly colored arrow pointing to the net so their team would know where to shoot. And just to clarify their intentions, another group of fans held up a banner that read, "We'll show you where the goal is!"

Here's a series of photos that highlight their efforts...

Though the all that work did result in Magdeburg finally scoring a goal, they went on to lose the match 2-1. Next time maybe they should have everyone behind their own net hold up stop signs.
