As the fans cursed his bastard name, as they muttered darkly about plots against the club they adore and the unfairness of it all, few of the red and black clad faithful of FC Union would have realised that Thorsten Schriever may have actually done them a huge favour. The referee had left the pitch of the Alte Försterei under a hail of abuse at half time, a battery of phlegm infused insults and incantations to malign spirits to strike down this man whose heart was as black as the fucking shorts he wore as he destroyed their hopes and dreams bore down upon him.
