Nürnberg missing all pens:

In Germany we say "Der Club is a Depp."
"Der Glubb is a Debb" that's how it's pronounced in proper nämbercherisch :D

Vielleicht wusste ich das schon mal und habs vergessen. :nervous:
It's not important anyway. One of the best things about this forum is its cosmopolitan vibe.

But back to football, the fail fest in both these races is indeed a bit funny. If Bayern manages to somehow not win it this year, wow. Still think they'll do it.

Local media say he had calf muscle problems. Kicker said so immediately on their live ticker. Only the idiots at Sky apparently didn't get the memo.
Alright thanks, would have been really exceptional otherwise.

Kicker had "no apparent injury" in their live ticker at the time of the sub. But alright, if that was what happened, that's one less embarrassment.

Diagnosis is out: "neurogene Muskelverhärtung" and i'll be **** if i know what that is :D
Hm, i checked the kicker ticker while the match was still on - they seem to have added it fast, at least. anyway...

Another very fun Bundesliga match. Mainz - Leipzig 3-3, RB led 3-1.

SV Hamburg selections have been so wierd recently....Lassoga and Arp benched (so hang on he's supposed to be good enough for Bayern and can't even get in Bundesliga 2 team) and Holtby and Hunt not even in the 18. They might be injured but they've also been benched in recent times.

Oh and they're 4th and losing again.

Hamburg in total meltdown.:lol:

Paderborn also lost so good chance for Union Berlin to get that second automatic spot now. Would be nice to have two Berlin teams in top division.

It would but Union hasn't been all that convincing lately either plus their away record is very average, not an ideal situation when 2 of your final games are on the road.


Hamburg is on the brink of disaster though. Not sure what will happen if they have to spend another year in the 2. Bundesliga, their financial situation being as terrible as it is.

And I wonder if they're gonna get rid of their coach now which would lead to even more chaos.

Their GD is way better so 2 wins out of 3 would be enough to finish above Hamburg. Hamburg Paderborn also play each other next week. Berlin big favourites now.

Yes, but we're talking about Union here who have managed to finish between 4th and 9th 7 years in a row now. They're perpetual bottlers and I'm still worried they find a way to mess it up.

Bayern concede a joke of a penalty and just a few minutes later Hannover gets a joke of a red card. The rules have become mad.

It was actually a second yellow, not a straight red. Nonetheless too harsh

I can't stand the complaining and diving nowadays, 20 years ago I laughed about that in serie a or la liga, now the bundesliga is even or worse. And that includes my hometown club, too. Makes me think to give up my season ticket

Then Bayern did not get a joke of a penalty for an identical hand play and no penalty for a clear foul in the box...

No Reus. Bayern can prepare the champagne.

EDIT : oh yes just remembered he got a red card versus Schalke.

Pulisic with the goal. Here on American TV they had no idea what formation Dortmund are using so Pulisic was listed as the RB.

-----------------Bürki
Akanji, Weigl, Diallo, Guerreiro
-----------Witsel-----Delaney
Sancho-------Götze------Pulisic
----------------Alcacer

Is the most obvious interpretation.

2-0!

Awesome guys, don't let this slip! This is arguably Dortmunds most difficult match left while Bayern have their two toughest left (away Leipzeg and home Frankfurt).

What? :lol: The best footballer the country has ever seen, and yet they don't know what's his position?

They know and love him there was just confusion on how Dortmund would lineup once the starting 11 was announced.
We play a 4-2-3-1 all the season, there is no reason for a confusion. And Pulisisc never hast played as a RB, so why they announce such things? I don't understand. Maybe the guy on the graphics smoked something and laughed his ass off. Btw: iam watching FOX S2 with Owomoyela as a co-commentator since 20 minutes, quite good commentating, but is this the tv-station you are speaking of?

Yes. But, I switched over to the Spanish language broadcast on Univision.

Well when you're team plays Guerrero, Akanji, Weigl and Diallo I can understand the confusion because that would mean either Diallo, a left footed CB who has played occasionally as a LB, or Akanji, and CB who has never played RB, playing as the right back. It could well have been a 3 at the back formation with Pulisic and Guerrero as the wing backs.
