The Bundesliga will also have two rounds this week. Among other competitions, the Arminia Bielefeld-Schalke 04 meeting will be held on Tuesday. The teams currently on the standings will be safely downgraded. This is a meeting. Not only is there no one in Hungary interested in it, but no one in North Rhine-Westphalia is interested in it now. However, in this pairing, they played the most memorable match in Bundesliga history. Life is an amazing director. Just one day 50 years ago, two conflicts between the two teams ended in court. Dozens of people were banned from immortality, which almost overthrew the Bundesliga. The Bundesliga has only existed for 8 years. year.
On April 17, 1971, Bielefeld took the train only 2 points more than Offenbach to reach Schalke, which was in a better position. Bielefeld was on the verge of relegation and performed a rope skipping dance across the league. In the 27th round, he defeated the final Oberhausen and was eliminated due to Offenbach being a guest of Hertha (Zoltan Varga scored the first goal of the West Berliner), So he has the opportunity to stay before Gelsenkirchen. However, because the team in the town 120 kilometers away from him is 5 points away from the leader on the list, that is to say, he is fighting for the championship title, so the home team Schalke obviously has the opportunity to participate in the game.
Bielefeld doesn’t trust the scores in this area, so he uses other methods. He promised to lose 40,000 marks for Schalke players. This is a huge number, but in many ways, it is no longer a fairy tale.
We are such fools! After all, our victory premium is 2,000 marks, and this time our per capita income is 2,300. “ A few decades later, that’s what Klaus Fischer said. For decades, Fischer has been ranked second in the Bundesliga permanent goal list, just a few weeks ago, Robert Lewandowski (Robert Lewandowski) pushed him to third place.
In the spring of 1971, when he was only 21 years old, he had only one promise. As he said, this type of fur coat is always taken care of by great old people. Of course, he had heard of it the week before the game, but he was not particularly proactive. However, thanks to the help of others, it worked. The Bielefeld football player Waldemar Slomiany, who had previously played for Schalke, put a handbag containing 40,000 marks on the toilet before the game.
So the money has arrived, but Schalke football players are very divided on this matter. The bag is in the dressing room, but not everyone knows what’s in it. Stan Libuda was not only the biggest defender at the time, but also his captain. He said nervously before withdrawing that he could not do so. No. 1 goalkeeper Norbert Nigbur (Norbert Nigbur) said that he was injured before the game, so he could not participate in the game. 20-year-old Dieter Burdenski came to replace him. Schalke participated in the scheduled game, in which a young man ranked high in the fur game, instead of the original goalkeeper, he did not know that he had to leave. When Burdenski paraded during the match, his Kicker match reporter gave him the highest rating of 1, and was included in this round. However, as his teammates had hoped, Gerd Roggensack failed to contact him and the ball went out.
Bielefeld won the agreement. The young goalkeeper knew nothing, and his teammates were surprised after the blowout. After a few decades, he said:
After the game, one of my older teammates said, please come to the Löwenpark parking lot at 9 o’clock. We met there, I pulled down the window, and he handed me an envelope. I don’t understand, but I didn’t expect it, because I am satisfied with my outstanding performance and there is a lot of money in the envelope. Because I got 800 points in the club a month after that. My conscience is very clear, because I only recalled this manipulation and did not participate. “
On the other hand, the Kicker correspondent knows more than Burdenskin, or knows football very well, because he gave six Schalke players the worst score, which is 6. Fischer is also 6 years old, and 50 years later, his older comrades will not give him the ball. This completely explains all his offense. At that time, the midfielder did nothing without help. But he also has an envelope. He received it three days later. In this way, one of the greatest battles in the history of the Bundesliga almost ruined his entire career at the age of 21. He did claim to be stupid with noble simplicity.
This Schalke-Bielefeld fur game is just the first paragraph in the darkest chapter in Bundesliga history. He started an amazing avalanche. Six rounds before the closing, four of the five teams approached in the threat of relegation and began to take a series of shameful actions off the court.
