It is official! 1.FC Magdeburg are back in professional football and have marked their return with aplomb by winning 2-1 against Rot Weiß Erfurt. The victory may have been lucky; the winning goal came in the 90th minute. A pretty victory or an ugly one, deserved or not. It is secondary. The great Brian Glanville once noted about West Germany beating England in 1968 for the first time ever:
A win is a win.
And he was right then. And his quote proves to be just as valid today.
More than 20000 people came to enjoy the game and the majority of them left the ground happy. It is a start that could not have been better.

The fans have established a reputation of being creative and funny and once more they worked hard for this choreography. FC Magdeburg may play third division, this atmosphere and such effort are first class.
