Hamburg's problems diagnosed: goals too small

BERLIN, Feb 6 (Reuters) - Hamburg SV have scored fewer goals than any Bundesliga club this season and the Hamburger Abendblatt newspaper has discovered one possible cause - the goals in their home stadium could be too small.

The newspaper reported that the goals in the Hamburg Arena stand 2.39 metres high, with the crossbar five centimetres lower than the prescribed 2.44 metres.

'Obviously we're going to measure that again,' HSV spokesman Joern Wolf told Germany's SID sports news agency.

'If those numbers reported are correct, we will make sure we have a new goal in place that conforms with the rules by the next match against Borussia Dortmund. It's a good thing no one hit the crossbar last week in the Energie Cottbus match.'

If confirmed, it would be another embarrassing setback for Hamburg, who started the season hoping to win the championship after finishing third last season. They are bottom of the standings and last week sacked coach Thomas Doll.
