It is an accolade in itself that The Guardian writes about Sir Charles and his Knights in brown:
Their 3-0 demolition of FC Köln had been a long time coming – it was only their second win in three months – but the manner of the victory made it worth the wait. „They simply ran all over us from the first minute,“ said Köln’s coach Frank Schaefer.
„It was our best game [of the season],“ Stanislawski added after seeing St Pauli play with the kind of high-tempo aggression that any self-respecting promoted side need to produce at home, and they played really, really well. The German-Ghanaian Charles Takyi caught the eye with two great goals, the first a 25-yard screamer into the top corner, and celebrated the double with a unique four-and-a-half finger salute. The upper part of his ring finger is missing.
