Calm down, we let you win.
yes, that's the only reason that makes sense. Also because France always likes it to lose against Germany and another reason is that Didier Deschamps and Rudi Völler were teammates when winning the Champions League 1993 with Olympique Marseille
If you saw how intensively both hugged each other after the match then it is "klar wie Kloßbrühe" that Deschamps did Rudi a favour by letting him win in his only match.
Tomorrow the top match in the Bundesliga #2 Bayern vs #1 Bayer.
Tbh I don't know why this match has to be played on a friday. OK, Bayern did play already on a Friday (mostly when the Bundesliga season starts and the open the season as Champion) but normally Bayern matches are Saturday evening or Sunday (even the traditional Saturday 3:30 pm kick off is not often with Bayern).
Anyway, I look forward to it. Hopefully Bayer without n won't disappoint (like so often in the past when it counts).
In 2.Bundesliga HSV has to play on Saturday at 1:00 pm (not our normal kick-off time, either). It's the first encounter ever with SV Elversberg from the little Saarland. Let's hope we don't underestimate them that would be fatal.
The Legend of Harry Kane.
Very entertaining game between Bayern and Leverkusen, could have been 4-4! Boniface has missed a fair few today but looks a very good player
Deserved point for leverkusen who were actually the better team. This bayern team dont look that impressive so far from whative seen. Would need a good bit of luck to win the champions league
Go ahead and thank the referee, Leverkusen fans. What a disgrace he is, handing Leverkusen a penalty for mere contact in the box. The true score of the game should be 2:1 to Bayern. I'm not saying Leverkusen were considerably worse, but the goals we scored were proper, and Leverkusen's were only courtesy of a freekick and a piss poor referee.
I'm not writing Daniel Schlager as a referee off yet, but if he continues whistling complete garbage like this, then he's deserved no place at this level.
@Philip The Frog Good game by Leverkusen, no doubt, but this/these referee(s) reminded me of the same moron(s) who screwed Uruguay at the Rugby World Cup against France a few days ago.
"If looks could kill"
How dare the referee? A penalty against mighty Bayern? In Stoppage time? And this just before the 188th Oktoberfest opens on Saturday and Bayern playing in their special "Wiesn-shirt".
Is this even allowed?
btw: I'm glad that Leverkusen could draw this. So matchday 4 and Bayern still not #1. If only this could hold until the season ends.
@Dirk If Bayern weren't involved and I'd never seen a post from you, I would get the impression you haven't even seen the incident. Sorry, but just because Bayern keep winning the league, it doesn't mean you can whistle penalties out of thin air and expect not to suffer a reputational loss.
If I had watched the same situation in a match without Bayern, and only neutral interest, I'd lament exactly the same rubbish refereeing. Anyways, I know you'll cling on to anything that contributes to Bayern dropping points.
If every such situation is whistled consistently, then we'd be facing games consisting of 10-20 penalties within 90 minutes. That's not the sport I want to see, and that's not the beautiful game you want to see. What we want to see, is crystal clear penalties given, nothing more and nothing less!
Above all, Leverkusen know they only have that clown, Schlager, and a few dimwits in the video room to thank for walking away with a point against us last night.
Der Schiedsrichter hat eine Linie und vorher gab es vielleicht Zweikämpfe, die er ähnlich auslegt. Und dann muss es dabei bleiben! Wenn du vorher nicht jeden Kontakt abpfeifst, wieso dann plötzlich am Ende?
The referee has a line and earlier, there were perhaps duels which he rates similarly. And then, he has to stick to that. If you don't whistle every contact earlier, then why suddenly at the end?
Who cares? We all know Bayern are going to romp this now that they have an actual CF. Didn't watch the game, glad Leverkusen didn't lose but frankly finishing 2nd is more important.
Dortmund wins 4-2 in Freiburg after being behind 1-2 at halftime, 2 winning goals at the 88th and 93rd minute. A win is a win, I think
Leipzig 3-0 against Augsburg, now only 1 pt behind Bayer and Bayern
Stuttgart this time not involved in a 5 goal (for or against) match for the frist time this season . "Only" a 3-1 win at Mainz. All 3 goals by Guirassy.
He's now already at 8 Goals in 4 matches for the start of the season. Not even Gerd Müller or Robert Lewandowski did that.
Very good start into the season for the Swabians, 4th place actually.
In the 2.Bundesliga we saw the "same old, same old" HSV again.
1-2 loss at newbie Elversberg which didn't get a point at home before....until HSV comes
Seems it's always the same. Winning against the big guns in the league but forgetting to do the same against the smaller clubs.
Fantastic top match in the evening between Schalke and Magdeburg. 60.000, full house in the Veltins Arena. Magdeburg looked like the sure winner in the first half, going ahead 2-0 (which could even be higher) but Schalke fighted back and won the match 4-3.
Düsseldorf now the new #1 after their 3-1 away win at Rostock, dropping HSV to #2 because of the better GD
I care! I'm not sure you realise that I'm fighting for the entire sport, not just Bayern.
LOL. Seems that Japan is actually "spelling doom" for German coaches.
After the 0-4 against Japan Bundestrainer Hansi Flick was sacked (btw: The first time ever that a Bundestrainer was sacked, the other (like Erich Ribbeck) resigned themselves before they'd get the sack).
After the 2-4 of Turkey against Japan Turkey's coach, Stefan Kuntz, got the sack.
And now we have another one in the pot for potential Bundestrainer (DFB will (and must) have the new coach installed before the trip to North America and Mexico in October.)
Stefan Kuntz coached Germany's U21 team and reached the U21 Euro final 3 times in a row with them (2-times won). After the DFB installed Flick as Bundestrainer in 2021 after Löw resigned, Kuntz became Coach of Turkey.
I still think it was a bit out of frustration that he didn't get the job as Bundestrainer (but maybe I'm wrong here).
Maybe this time? I like him but still favour Nagelsmann for the long time perspective.
I'd be happy with both as Bundestrainer.
Some former German internationals like Bastian Schweinsteiger or Michael Ballack want to see former Dutch Bondscoach (and Bayern coach) Louis van Gaal installed.
A Bondscoach as Bundestrainer? A Dutch coaching the Germans. Then I've seen it all
The guy is over 70 and didn't he retire after the World Cup in Qatar?
I think you're fighting for Bayern on this occasion but I get your point. I admire fans of clubs that always win getting worked up when a decision doesn't go their way in the league. If it were CL, I would get it but Bayern will get 3 points most weekends in the league so nothing to get worked up about.
Each to their own of course.
Der Wunschkandidat hat zugesagt: Mit Nagelsmann zur Heim-EM
Julian Nagelsmann is new Bundestrainer and leads the Nationalmannschaft.....until the end of the Euro 2024.
As I understand it, it's only until the end of the Euro? Is this because the DFB is actually "cash-strapped" and has also to pay sacked Hansi Flick until the end of his contract? And don't want to risk a long-time contract if the Euro will also be failure? Questions over Questions
Anyway, with 36 years Nagelsmann is the youngest Bundestrainer ever.
Good news for the rest of Europe tbf.
In 1.Bundesliga we only have one match today: #4 Stuttgart vs #17 Darmstadt
The team which scored the most goals (14) against the team which conceded the most (13). Normally on paper a safe bet for a Stuttgart win. But I have the impression that Stuttgart overperforms a bit atm and Darmstadt isn't so bad as the standings may suggest. Last weekend they were unlucky not to get their first win, after a 3-0 lead against Gladbach they could only draw the match.
In 2. Bundesliga we have 2 matches today:
#18 Osnabrück vs #2 HSV
#5 Magdeburg vs #14 Paderborn
Osnabrück was hammered 0-7 last weekend in Hannover and you can expect them to be extra motivated against HSV today (like always btw).
HSV after a good start into the season with 3 wins 1 draw against the "big guns" in the league last weekend with a crap performance against the other promoted team, Elversberg, where we lost 1-2.
2 losses against promoted teams in a row? After this good start? Normally this would be a sure bet that exactly this happens. But I hope HSV shows now what they always proclain for weeks now, that this is a "different HSV" now. Let's see....
You must just bang (lightly!) the table or have hands in heads as an act of frustration with results like this!
Another season in division 2 beckons
If you read again my last post than you see that I already had a feeling that this could happen.
HSV has so far lost all away matches at the legendary 'Bremer Brücke" in the 2nd Bundesliga. Last away win for HSV there was in 1988 in the DFB Pokal.
Thank God next week we have #1 Düsseldorf at home
In your dreams
They're still winning. Now 3-1 against Darmstadt and top of the table (at least for a night)
Again 2 goals from Guirassy. Now 10 Goals in 5 matches. What's going on with this guy?
Tbf we've also had bad days v Osnabrück :
