Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

Yeah, it is exciting (Werder Bremen finished 10th last season, so I suppose I like some variability, even though they finished 2nd the season before). The Bundesliga is also very close to taking 3rd place in the UEFA rankings from Serie A and getting a fourth CL spot.

I do like good open leagues like the Bundesliga. And I'd be more than happy to see 4 German teams in the CL instead of the Italians.

Bet Liverpool would like a good open league at the moment. They're down and out now. I didn't think it could get any worse for them after the beachball, but today's game was a real farce, mainly due to bizarre tactics and prioritising the Champions League game. At 1:1 Liverpool were, AFAIK, still controlling play and could have probably pushed for the win. So what does Benitez do? Subs off his only two matchwinners so he can play them in Lyon. Foolish, in my opinion. That's one title challenger out of the race... though of course I predicted from the off they were never in it to start with

Hehe, not a good day for the top teams. Leverkusen drew, Bremen drew, Hamburg lost, Schalke drew, Bayern drew, Wolfsburg drew, Mainz drew.

Well, no one really understood how exactly Hertha was so "good" last season (mainly a lot of lucky one goal difference wins, they were sort of the Greece of the last Bundesliga seasons). So there's a certain satisfaction among many that they play so badly this seasons.

(And Voronin's 11 goals in 27 games earned him a 16th place among goalscorers, not exactly stellar.)

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

Those results are superb and what keeps leagues interesting. I remember last year there were two days where the top five teams didn't even score, let alone win and it kept things tight for just that little longer.

I can't believe Voronin only got 11 though - it seemed like every week I was reading in the Bundesliga summary article he'd scored yet another winner. So now he's even more useless in my mind - thanks Iasiusthat's made my day!

Of course, as open leagues go, the Championship that Jax, Starkers and I follow is pretty gaping as well - http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/foot...le/default.stm

Well, most of them did score.
Schalke - Leverkusen: 2-2 (0-2)
Nürnberg - Bremen: 2-2 (2-0)
Hamburg - Gladback: 2-3 (1-1)
Stuttgart - Bayern: 0-0
Wolfsburg - Mainz: 3-3 (2-2)

They just didn't score more.

Glad to be of help in any way that lowers your opinion of Hertha('s ex-players).

Of course, as open leagues go, the Championship that Jax, Starkers and I follow is pretty gaping as well - http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/foot...le/default.stm
That does look really interesting.

Actually, it's much more exciting than I'd like it to be - being a Bayern supporter, I like my Bundesliga exciting only as long as there is no doubt about who'll top the table in the end

By the way, great job by Schalke tonight, scoring twice inside the last seven minutes and forcing a draw against Leverkusen.

Yeah, whilst you might have expected Newcastle, WBA and Cardiff near the top who'd have seen Blackpool, Leicester and Bristol City in the top 6 at this stage. Ok it might not stay that way, but I still firmly expect another surprise team to get promoted ala Hull/Burnley etc.

Fuck, horrible, horrible perfomance by my club, that's the end of our run in the European Cup this year. Oh well, was nice while it lasted. Our Ultras made a nice Star Trek-themed intro though: [the banner says "let's go, boys, beam us to the final" (a little overly optimistic )]

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

Sad to hear about the German Keepers death, sounds like he could of been a big player for GER in the World Cup. Cudicini of Tottenham has been injured seriously in a motor bike accident yesterday and looks like his career is over from reports.

Bad week for Football really

On a positive note we get to see Ireland dump the french out hopefully I do fancy there chances, c'mon ireland it won't be a world cup party without the Irish to sing and drink with .

If you love Brazil or hate England then you will be happy come Saturday evening when the Samba boys stuff England because with the injuries I can't see us getting out of the Middle East with less than a 2-0 drubbing if not 3-0.

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

Ugh, Gibbs has followed Van Persie into the injury room. It's been a while since I've seen Traore at left back, hope he can fill in well enough. Rumor is that Gibbs fractured his metatarsal, if so that, like Clichy's back fracture, is a long term layoff.

I suppose Sagna could be shifted to left back though, and keep Eboue on the right.

Ramsey had a cracking game against Scotland, I'd love to see him play in Diaby's position more often.

I wonder if Wenger will switch to 4-4-2 and put Arshavin behind Eduardo, or if he'll keep the 4-3-3 and hope Eduardo can play as a target man.
