I hate international breaks?

No question, yes, definitely: there is hardly anything more unnecessary in professional football than international match breaks. A not inconsiderable part of this dislike is always contributed when FC St. Pauli is in good form and they are held back by such a break.

It’s time for some confused statistics again.
