Goal! And then all turn

Chaos? Or just a little bit of clutter? But in the modern soccer no space. Everything is planned, measured, calculated. The Trainings are optimized, the moves are learned, and the budget planned, each corner has a Sponsor, on the Terraces and Cantor set the pace. A game is a meticulously choreographed Show.

Until a goal is scored. On the field the players will drop like young dogs, on the ranks of the heart of man, everything is shaking, for a few seconds, this well-structured world in the stadium completely off the rails. It breaks something out of us when celebrating a goal. But what? How does the hit the opponent? Why is the Fan? And how will it be reported? Responses from four perspectives.

The striker: "As a warning shot,"

More than 220 goals scored by the man in his professional career, he has scored in Ligue 1 and the Champions League, in China and in the free stream, and therefore, first of all, the question is: How much the emotions are there still in scoring goes to Guillaume Hoarau? "A lot," says the French striker of YB, "because a goal is the best feeling to shoot still at all in football." Just the 35-Year-old is going through a losing streak, two goals in nine Games means that for his circumstances, after a foot injury, he wants to attack again. Hoarau is a striker, "I was always in the front" because he had a unique responsibility: The striker can give the team a lot and also take much, says Hoarau. "A goal of yours – and all of them have confidence again. A Penalty goes wrong and the morale is in the basement."

goals in football sometimes come quite suddenly, "like a terrible shot". The were the best, the sudden lead after the printing phase of the opponent, the surprising long shot to happiness. "There are these wild moments are in the game, there is so much voltage discharges." Hoarau remembers the Cup final in France with PSG against Monaco, 0:0 to 90, 0:0 after 105 minutes – all the people are expecting a penalty shoot-out. Out of nowhere Hoarau on the images to see how him and his team-mates with entrücktem views over the place to hunt. "Something you think of as a little Boy in Training," says the Frenchman.

The cold-bloodedness of the unerring striker appears to be transmitted in Hoarau on the scoring. His hits, he maintains with the clenched fist to celebrate, perhaps with a cry. "My role model was Pauleta of PSG. He has always spread kindness to the poor." Only once Hoarau allowed a little extravagance: In December 2018 YB 3:1 in Basel wins, the wounded giant of a man allows himself in the stands, a Serving of fries, for which he is promptly criticized. A week later, he can join in against Thun again, hitting a stoppage-time victory and imitated with paper scraps from the floor the next Serving of fries. "That came quite spontaneously," he says, laughing.

Reporter: A goal, the essence of the game

As a footballer, Gabriel Haldimann midfielder was. But on the microphone as the Reporter from the YB-Fankanal "Radio-Yellow-Black" (RGS) has a nose for goal like a top-striker. Haldimann and his colleagues to read the game, they are 90 minutes live on the air. Comment for Fans who have no TV pictures available, or even for the Blind. "The Fan wants to know how what happened," says Haldimann, "and time for the repetition you're not, when you're live." The ball attachment in the midfield RGS is also time for cocky-extravagant backgrounds: oh, there's no line at the sausage stand, the aha, the President of the city tweet about YB.

But in the last third of the field, in the dangerous Zone, "we have to be on the ball," explains Haldimann. When celebrating a goal, the reporters have already tried a lot of things. The elongated "Goooooool" to a South American model was discarded after some time to "set up", so Haldimann. A goal is for him the essence of a game, the cheering must remain authentic. "And it serves as an indicator for the drama of a match."

"not a goal for YB" at 11:1 in the Cup against Freienbach to the minutes-long shouting, according to Jean-Pierre Nsames title-locking 2:1 against Luzern and more. The Torschrei is the "signature move" of the radio reporter, his license plate: "on the Basis of the jubilation, I can tell immediately how important at the time, the goal for YB was."

When René Häfliger outside his home town of Basel on the way, it is possible that his well-Known whip out in the pub the phone, to show others a Video: "Look, this is the case with the da." To listen Häfligers is then rough voice. And to see over long distances, his belly, because the Reporter from the 5:0 of the FCB is about Benfica Lisbon, while he hailed the gates, and admired.

Häfliger must smile when he sees his outbursts. But he also says: "It would be wrong if any local media would send someone to the games, showing no emotions. It would be wrong if the Swiss television would be emotionless reports about games of the national team." Emotions play, it is prohibited for him, as well as for the creators of "Radio-Yellow-Black".

In his 30 years as a Reporter and television was Häfliger commentator. But gates, he experienced rather than the radio man: "On TV, you give your two cents, what you all see. On the Radio, but you are the one who creates the images in my head of the people are. This is much more intense." So intense that Häfligers cheering in the Benfica game almost ecstatic comes across as that of the players on the field.

gates are also celebrated in times of staged single-jubilation mostly in the group. Collected a Team but a counter hit, then in the team sports of football is thrown back, each player on themselves. So the Christian Schwegler told. After more than 500 Matches as a professional-and-white of the Lucerne defender: "In the first line of each self for its performance."

Is the Ball in the own network is less demand for collective encouragement as resilience, inner toughness. Possible, that responds to a colleague a positive effect on a shoulder knocker. The other wants to be to a fault dear to be left alone.

basically, Schwegler says: "Directly after a gate impact on the group dynamics is very difficult." Too hectic around Drum, to quickly re-played more. So everyone needs to find a way to process the goal. "Self-criticism is a must. But you can't rag, otherwise you lose too much energy."

And sometimes can throw a gate in a whole Team out of Balance. Schwegler has experienced it with Salzburg. 2:0 led Team in the first leg, against Malmö, in one of the numerous attempts of the Austrians to the Champions League, before at the last Minute a long Ball and a misunderstanding led to the goal. Schwegler speaks of "a dull feeling" which immediately arose.

and Then helped all the positive Talk about nothing: "You're exposed to the subconscious defenseless. You're trying to believe and know: It can't go well." In fact, it did not go down well. With the willing to change Sadio Mané of the best Salzburg refused to play the return game. "We are unceremoniously gone down," says Schwegler, "there's a goal in the last second, has influenced two Matches."

The Fan: "Duregheie", also about ten feet

"Maybe ten meters," estimates YB-Fan Martin* and means, how far it is a wild goal celebrations in the curve, pushing off from the original location. In the Ultra-block, a goal is perhaps a little more than degrees only applauded, of course.

"But it is important to me, what a goal it is," says Martin. It is a 4:0 against Thun, a 3:0 against Lugano should also be discreet cheers. "But if you have 2:1 lead against Juventus, or just the decisive goal for the title experience, something out of you." Because it is wild and loud, because the beer flies beaker and its contents, "the don't have to find all the fun." Keyword: beer: What goes up in, out must the bottom. A Football fan must be a master of timing – "who missed a lot of goals on the toilet, gets to hear a lot of contradictions." Control? In the case of advantage.

Nevertheless, it is sung by the Fans of FC Basel "duregheie" as a part of the curve culture – the loss of control over the emotions. But "duregheie", this is not on the push of a button, says Peter*. For large feelings the right environment is necessary. It needs a full stadium, a close proximity to opposing Fans, the mutual Provoke that drives the atmosphere, an exciting game.

And very rarely is a certain magic about a game, without that it would have been announced. For Peter that was last against Eindhoven in the case: "There's a special atmosphere on the stadium was from the very beginning." Then the game must not be sold at all, because there is a connection between Fans and players provides for a energy, as the man feels comfortable only at mass events.

1. December travels YB and Basel. "A game with potential," says Peter.
