Were you there in the stadium? I watched it on tv and the support of the Sampdoria fans came across just phenomenally, it was hugely impressive.
I wasn't in the stadium. Regarding fan support, keep in mind that our stadium is currently being renovated and the 'Ostkurve' is in mid-construction and lacked a roof (many 'Ultras' were distributed all over the place). Without a roof, the support was bound to sound weaker. Still, the atmosphere in the Weserstadion could be better overall.

The Sampdoria fans were quite impressive though. Based on what I've heard, they were really good fans that I'd love to see again in Bremen. A bit of too much "dying on the pitch" from some of their players, but the Sampdoria fans were quite nice and are welcome again if we meet them in the future.

Uh-oh, Iasius is probably opening up the hard liquor right about now.
Still lots of time left though.
I was away from home since last Wednesday, helping my sister move*. I just got home yesterday afternoon. On Tuesday, I turned on the TV at 21.15 when Sampdoria was already 2:0 up at home. I went to bed at half-time, thinking that with that level of play Werder definitely wouldn't make it (shame on me).

Well, Bremen made it quite exciting, but deserved it imo; brave fight by Sampdoria though. If Bayern had qualified for the CL like that I would have said "typical".
However, I couldn't sleep and went downstairs again to watch the rest of the match at around minute 75.

I'm glad I did. This was really the kind of match I've come to expect from Werder over the last years. In some ways it was similar to our defeat in the EL last season when we drew 1-1 in the away match in Valencia and then drew 4-4 at home after being down 1-3 ... except with a happy ending.

Being a Werder Bremen fan is not for the weak of heart.



I hope Rapid can win their second leg today against Villa. Austria (the country ) has been doing really well in UEFA competitions last year and I hope this will continue this year, especially with Rapid (I also like the colors ).

Another good year, and you could see additional CL spots for the Bundesliga (the other one ).

Besides, your team has earned a place in my heart with your demolition of HSV at home last season. Shame you couldn't repeat that away.

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

Ugh. Inter ... again.

We were already drawn against them in 2004/05 (0:2 away, 1:1 home) and 2008/09 (2:1 home, 1:1 away).

Spurs are interesting and we beat Twente in the EL Round of 32 last season.


This also seems to be Arnautovic's group, his former clubs being Inter and Twente.

It's a very difficult group for Bremen imo, you'll have to improve compared to the games against Sampdoria. Bayern typically got the easiest group of all the pot1 teams except for possibly Arsenal.

Not looking too good for Rapid today, playing shite, although Villa sucks too.

Congratulations.

Judging by the scoreline, it must've been a great game.

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

Watched the game and I don't get how Villa blew that one they were just awful for the last 1/3 of the game after looking comfortable. I don't see how MacDonald can get the job unless Lerner is only bothered with his cheque book because when it began to go wrong he looked clueless. When you need goals you don't leave Heskey on the field with Carew warming the bench . Villa will struggle to finish in the top 10 based off the last 3 performances and a fully fit Dunne/Agbonlahor cannot come quick enough.

They need to get rid of some players without a doubt, Reo-Coker looks out of his depth, Guzan never had a good game for Villa period and Davies looks shaky than a Michael Dawson without King next to him. Not too mention Beybe is plain awful no matter what side of the defence he's on.

Lerner will regret O Neill's departure no doubt.

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

As for the CL draw, first of all I hate how Uefa try and turn it into some sort of hour long show UEFA its tacky just draw the god dam balls next time please.

Man Utd should easily win there group with Valencia a shadow of the team they were last season now they loss Villa & Silva. However Utd should be careful to watch Juan Mata who is very good. Utd/Rangers will be fun and I look forward to an English team stuffing a Scottish one

Chelsea will face tricky away ties at Moscow and Marsielle but still should ease through as winners. Arsenal get the typical easy group out of the english clubs invovled so they will ride through to the last 16 but then get knock out soon after. I think Spurs can finish 2nd, there homeform is key and I will go out on a limb and say Spurs will finish 2nd if King plays in the CL games.

for me....

Spurs Last 16
Arsenal Last 8
Man Utd Last 4
Chelsea to finally win the dam thing.

Some of the Europa League groups are as comparable to the Champions League ones.

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

A third England footballer has won an injunction to stop claims about his private life going public.
With the amount our footballers who whip out there cocks with anything with two legs and a short dress I feel they should fucking retire and become pornstars for a living. So who do we think are the idiot 3 ?

* Crouch probably has done it before he got caught so thats one

* Rumors flying around about J.Cole and Gerrard though I don't think Stevie is that stupid.

* I wouldn't put it pass Cashley beign in a fucking orgy at the Chelsea training ground or Terry shagging the secetary

As for Chelsea players, we have loss Lamps/Terry for the upcoming ENG game. Lamps is having surgery, which has been obviously planned for the international break meanwhile Defoe whosep robably got less chance of playing puts his off. Remind me of that the next time Lamps tells us how proud he is of playing for England.

Dawson/Jagks will probably be our centre backs, meaning we need to beat Bulgaria because Switzerland in there own back yard are probably going to turn us into swiss cheese.

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

Watched some enjoyable matches this weekend, Villa v Everton was real end-to-end stuff. A very enthralling match.

Saints had a mixed week, won 4-0 and sacked our manager today Can't say I'm too surprised though, it was a long time coming and I'm not too worried about it. I'll hold back my judgement until we find out who the new manager will be.

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

I can't understand why Saints sacked Padrew therefoe blowing any chance of getting promoted this season. I wonder if they will go for someone like Paul Ince ? cheao young and bags of potential BUT I actually want him to be the next U21 manager so actually scrap that idea

I see that Capello picks SWP again doesn't pick in form Huddlestone and takes bit part Utd player Carrick instead. To top it off he recalls slower than a snail UPSON and takes 1 right back again..

Hes really learn't his lessons I see. England might just might beat Bulgaria but we got little chance against the Swiss in there own yard.

Sacking PArdew is a weird one, though apparently there are rumours of unrest behind the scenes. Still it seems a silly time to do it, if their are issues either get rid in the summer, or else get behind him till at least November!

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

Well from what I've heard Markus Liebherr wanted to sack Pardew last season, but because of the goodwill from the fans over winning the JPT our chairman, Nicola Cortese, persuaded our owner to give him more time.

But I think that there has been some friction between Pardew and backroom staff, and his sacking was delayed because of Liberherr's passing away.

I've never been really convinced by Pardew, he doesn't really have a plan b and we've been poor at closing games out.

It'll be interesting to see how the team and the crowd react tonight, as we play Swindon in the first round of the JPT.
