Hello Jörg,

if you need a reference you can look up chapter 4 of Andreß/Golsch/Schmidt (2013): Applied Panel Data Analysis for Economic and Social Surveys. Springer. They compare pooled OLS, First Differences and FE-Models. The problem with pooled OLS is that it uses the between variance, even when you use the cluster option (which does NOT control for all the serial correlation). The other models use the within-variance only.

Hope this helps,

Sebastian Beil, M.A.
