It is pitch dark when SCB striker Simon Moser leaves the stadium with the bag over his shoulder. A handful of fans are waiting in a corner. But not to insult Moser and Co. after the 1: 3 in Davos. “We believe in you,” they call encouragingly to the players. These seem to be stuck in an endless loop.

The SCB has played three games. And all lost. The start of the season has already failed in the last two years. In 2020, the first eleven games resulted in eight bankruptcies, in 2019 seven. Both times the downward slide resulted in a coach dismissal. Now with Johan Lundskog (37) there is a man on the gang who has never coached a professional team.
