Bundesliga 2017/18

Recommended Posts

Did not watch much live as I was more focused on Irma but these days off gave me the chance to catch up on the games the last two days.

Bayern looked pitiful (Bayern 0:2 Hoffenheim).  There really is nothing special going on there at the moment.  They will right the ship but the beginning of the season has not looked exceptional at all.  Hopefully they open up UCL by taking their frustration out of poor Anderlecht.  I think Hoffenheim could end up with a decent Europa campaign.  As much as it sucks only having three Bundesliga teams in UCL I think that they are better suited to be successful there, at least this season.

Dortmund had around 80% of the possession and spend the final hour a man up and still could not find the back of the net (Dortmund 0:0 Freiburg).  This was just one of those games, nothing to be concerned about for them I do not think.  They sit atop the table with seven points and still have yet to surrender a goal.  Freiburg is going to struggle this season although I guess getting a point here is something for them to simply about.

The most interesting game was Hannover 96 equalizing in seventy-fifth minute at Wolfsburg to remain unbeaten.  Their return to the Bundesliga has certainly gotten off to a good start.

I am updating the table in the first post for anybody that is interested.

Happy to see that Bayern seems to be playing much better the last two matches.  Having fun watching James.  That being said, Neuer is out until January, which just plain sucks.  Second foot injury this year.  Hopefully this does not become a thing with the World Cup next summer.

Today was an embarrassment.  I am in fear of what is going to happen with PSG this week.

All I know is James better be out there.

Hoping someone will break the monotony of the FCB monopoly. 

Shut up :tongue:

Honestly though I can understand that, if I were not their fan I would feel the same (unless it was Leipzig).

Another 2-0 advantage.  Another blown lead.  Two more points dropped.  What an embarrassment.

Ribery is likely done with an ACL as well.  At least Freiburg helped us out by beating Hoffenheim.  They somehow have a win and a draw against Hoffenheim and Dortmund but are 1-0-4 against everyone else.

Five points down is not a good start.

Sorry I have not been able to keep to probably zero readers I have updates, but there are those occasional months where teaching destroys your ability to do anything else.

Anyway, Der Klassiker is tomorrow and I urge everybody to watch.  After defeating Leipzig last weekend my boys look to take a stranglehold tomorrow!

I love you Jupp!!!

DFB Pokal Round of 16 Draw

Only four lower division clubs remain with only one from below the second division.  Paderborn and Ingolstadt do play each other though so at least one will make the Quarterfinals and both Nürnburg and Heidenheim are at home.  FC Köln are also still alive and they may as well be a second division team at this point.

December 19-20
Mainz 05 v. VfB Stuttgart
1. FC Nürnburg (II) v. VfB Wolfsburg
Bayern München v. Borussia Dortmund
1. FC Heidenheim (II) v. Eintracht Frankfurt
Werder Bremen v. SC Freiburg
Borussia Monchengladbach v. Bayer Leverkusen
SC Paderborn (III) v. FC Ingolstadt (II)
Schalke 04 v. 1. FC Köln
