FC Magdeburg Fans Show Their Team Where The Goal Is (VIDEO)

Some of you may have seen this YouTube video clip of desperate football fans taking matters into their own hands earlier in the year. But as the new season starts this weekend, we thought we'd bring it to everyone's attention again.

After an appalling 2011/12 season saw German team FC Magdeburg go without a goal for five consecutive matches, fans took drastic action.

They arrived at the next game against Berliner AK 07, armed with brightly coloured arrows, which they then helpfully pointed towards the goal.

And - guess what? - it worked! Ten minutes before the end of the match, US forward Chris Wright scored a blinder.

Mind you, they still lost 2-1. Never mind, lads - better luck this season!
