Bremen in the Relegation: Werder miracle to succeed – part one

four years Ago, when Werder last of the descent threatened, was half the town on the legs. On Easter dike, on the ramp, which leads down to the stadium, people were standing very close together, a sea in Green and White, the coaches of the teams had to pave a chore your way. It is the time of the "Green White Wonderwall", a different, a very, very distant time, which has, of course, with Corona was not – but also only.
