Perfect debut for Hamburg's new home kit, a 0-3 home defeat :ffs:

What happened then Dirk?
Vanni, that was so typical HSV;). Perfect scenario: Sell out crowd of 57.000, high expectations and then they blew it on the field.

Although we had a fair amount of big chances in the first half the win for Holstein was deserved.

btw: It was our first competition match against Holstein since 1963, in the pre-Bundesliga era.

Anyway, it's only the first match of a long season and remember last season where we began with 2 Wins in the Bundesliga. So maybe it's a warning shot to the right time that this season won't be a "no-brainer". Next week they'll have the chance to (Red Dead) Redemption, away at Sandhausen.


My personal highlight was the little pre-match ceremony where HSV and Germany Legend Uwe Seeler was on the field. Good to see my childhood hero fit again after some health problems. He's nearly 82 now.

St.Pauli wins again, 2-0 at the Millerntor against the Lilies from Darmstadt (their first loss in the last 12 League matches.
6 points now from the first 2 matches. Not bad I have to admit.
This great start reminds me of the HSV last season :lol:

Damn, weve again lost one of our highly rated prospects. This Time Kehrer for 37 millions to PSG.

What a Team we could field, solely based on our own youth, if we were able to keep them together

Gündogan, Sane ( both Manchester City)
Matip ( Liverpool)
Özil, Kolasinac ( both Arsenal)
Draxler, Kehrer ( both PSG)
Neuer ( Bayern)

That will put an end to the Jerome Boateng to PSG rumours, I think.
A bit surprising though because last week it seemed that Kehrer and Schalke wanted to extend the contract which lasts until 2019. 37 million Euro are hard to withstand for Schalke though.

That will be the 4th German for PSG (3 players and 1 coach). "Paris Saint Germa(i)n " :D
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

HSV won at Sandhausen with 3-0, 2 of the 3 Goals were gifts from their goalkeeper but wgaf, goal is goal :D

Today at 8:30pm (7:30pm UK time) we'll see the "Supercup" match between Bayern and Eintracht Frankfurt, a replay of the Cup final from May, only that Nico Kovac is now Bayern coach.



edit: End-result: Bayern wins 5-0

I switched off after the 2-0. This was clear from the beginning that Frankfurt will lose.

What to expect when their new coach is named Adolf "Adi" Hütter and comes from Austria. This sounds all too familiar :D

You switched off at 2-0? Funny, I switched the game on at that point. Game over of course but I wasn't expecting much.

Nor am I expecting a title race or anything. I just hope someone has the quality to be a decent runner-up to Bayern. Haven't gone through the squads just yet (the Buli only kicks off in a fortnight as it's Pokal weekend in a few days) but reports are promising regarding BvB. Hopefully Schalke can play some better stuff and I reckon Bayer FC were the real contenders last season. Lots of promise shown, just need to keep this going this season.

The drop is going to be the more interesting battle (it always is). I have high hopes for Düsseldorf and Nürnberg (not really I'm just saying this but it would be nice for such big places to have a team in the top divison for more than 2 seasons, actually Nürnberg have stayed for longer man this is a long bracket).

Anyway can't wait.

Hamburg hadn't won 3-0 away in the league since February 2017 (at Leipzig). This stat isn't very interesting is it? Oh well.

I simply couldn't stand these Lewandowski "celebrations" anymore. Hand behind the ear to the fans. Prick.

tbh i am not a big fan of Lucien Favre as coach. But maybe the years in Ligue 1 were good for him. But I like the work of Domenico Tedesco. One of the "Jungen Wilden" like Nagelsmann (both are mates and made their coaching diploma at the same time (Tedesco was the best one of the class though before Nagelsmann).

Let's see how both and their team now perform with Champions League Football in addition.

Anyway, can't wait for the catastrophic 2018 football year (for Hamburg, the Bundesliga in Europe and Germany, too) to end. Can't get any worse....saying that we'll play France in a few weeks in this new competition "Nations League" (still don't know the rules of it :D ) Oh my....

Ja, ja, wer den Schaden hat braucht für den Spott nicht zu sorgen ;) (cba to find a suitable english idiom for this saying )

Wait until 2022 when you're defending World Champion and will bow out in the group stages. It's the new World Cup Football "natural law" for European World Champions of the New Millenium (remember: you "discovered" it first in 2002 :D )
