Before the derby against St. Pauli, all eyes are on Simon Terodde. After moving to HSV, the striker has long since proven his worth.
Five wins, six goals, one template: The start of the new season at Hamburger SV could hardly have gone better for Simon Terodde .
The 32-year-old was able to underpin his role as the most successful striker in the second division (124 goals in 225 games) also in red pants and competes with a correspondingly broad chest before the important city derby against FC St. Pauli. ()

"He is always a danger. If he doesn't score himself, he definitely makes room for others," enthusesfrom his successor, about whom he says before the derby: "We absolutely need him!"
With three doubles against Fortuna Düsseldorf, SC Paderborn and most recently against the Würzburger Kickers, Terodde decided the HSV games almost single-handedly.

But it's not just his goals that make him so important to HSV coach Daniel Thioune, but also the way he pulls the team along.
The best example: the. At halftime, HSV were still 0: 1 behind, showed a desolate performance, but turned up after the break. Terodde grabbed the ball before every goal kick by the opponent and put it on the line by Würzburg goalkeeper Fabian Giefer so as not to lose any time. The effort was rewarded.
Kickers captain Feick: "That little bit of luck was missing"
After the 1: 3 defeat against the table top HSV, the Würzburger Kickers remain in last place in the 2nd Bundesliga. Previously, the Kickers had to report three positive corona tests. © imago images In the game against HSV, the Würzburger Kickers, around captain Arne Feick, could not shine. After the 0: 2 against Holstein Kiel, the Kickers have to cope with another defeat. So far, Tables-18. only one point out of five games.
Within 17 minutes, Terodde turned the game around with two goals and put his team in the lead, which it did not last until the end. "In this game, I judge him even more by his performance than by his two goals. Simon is human and athletic a win. He sets the boys on fire," said coach Thioune after the game."Shoots the 2nd division every year"
What makes Terodde so dangerous for opposing defenses is his unpredictability. There are games in which he has little contact with the ball, doesn't really take part in the action, but is there when the defenders aren't careful for a moment.
Despite its height of 1.92 meters, the attacker is sometimes invisible in the game and still very dangerous. "Terodde is a very, very good player. Somehow he shoots up the second division every year when he's there. We know him, we have to keep an eye on him," warns St. Pauli's midfielder Marvin Knoll.
Especially in derbies, Terodde has proven his accuracy and nerve strength in front of the goal several times. Terodde once scored 1. FC Kökn in stoppage time against Borussia Mönchengladbach, scored against Karlsruhe in Stuttgart, against Duisburg for Bochum and also scored a goal for Union against Hertha BSC in the Berlin derby. Now it should also work in the city derby against St. Pauli.
St. Pauli's Supervisory Board and Presidium want to change the Articles of Association
The honorary Presidium of FC St. Pauli has reached its limits according to its own information, so an amendment to the Articles of Association will be voted on at the next general meeting (November 15). © imago images Would like to reorganize FC St. Pauli: President Oke Göttlich. The club from Hamburg informed about its project by press release.
HSV lost the last two duels. "A city derby is particularly explosive. As a player, you just want the fans to go to work happily on Monday," Terodde said in an interview with the Hamburger Abendblatt .Terodde already a topic at HSV in January
The fact that the three-time top scorer and two-time second division champion was even able to switch to HSV was due to 1. FC Köln's generosity last summer. With an estimated annual salary of 2.5 million euros, Terodde would not have been affordable for the people of Hamburg.
"People asked us: Why are you giving up Terodde at this point in time? But HSV wanted Simon right now, the club would have been out later. […] Simon wanted to do it, we had to downsize the squad and make money That's why we had to do that at this point in time, "said Cologne's manager Horst Heldt, explaining the free transfer in a conversation with the Geissblog . Cologne terminated the contract and even took part of Terodde's salary.
The first intensive contact between him and HSV, however, took place much earlier, at the beginning of the year. At that time, the search for a new striker caused a tremor in the Rothosen board.
The chairman Bernd Hoffmann and sports director Jonas Boldt clashed several times. Hoffmann preferred Terodde, Boldt wanted the young Slovak Robert Bozenik, and ultimately Joel Pohjanpalo from Bayer Leverkusen came on loan.
A little later, HSV separated from its chairman Hoffmann. Reason: Atmospheric disturbances that made further collaboration in this constellation impossible.
In the meantime, the situation on the management floor has calmed down again despite the miserably missed promotion. To keep it that way, Terodde will have to score many more goals in Hamburg. In the third attempt, HSV finally wants to make the return to the Bundesliga perfect. Preferably with Terodde as the top scorer - and derby hero.
