(Half-)Season Summary

 

spacer.png

spacer.png

spacer.png

spacer.png

Ok, it was only half a season but still. Güler was essential, but thats obvious. Ramirez turned out to be our leader from the back. Okoye was vital in many games. It is a pity that Thiam will leave after this season, there was no way to loan him out again. And of course Ismail Kaya! What a season for him and us!

Transfers & Our New Team

 

spacer.png

Selling Okoye hurt us, but he wanted to move to a bigger club. Ben Johnson was fast, but not fast enough for us. Heinze had a release clause. Bautz & Amend are incredible talented youngsters who needed game time.

spacer.png

We spend a lot of money but it was necessary.

 

Jürgen Eschweiler

spacer.png

Strong, physical Box-to-Box midfielder. The 23 year old was capped 10 times for the German U21.

 

Marco Capellino

spacer.png

25 year old Uruguayan international, who should go right into the 1st team in central defense alongside Ramirez.

 

Matty Potts

spacer.png

Welsh Left Back, 23 years old, 9 caps.

 

Rimmel Rennie

spacer.png

One of the funniest names in the game, but the English U20 player also seems to be a capable left winger.

 

Pablo Marquez

spacer.png

Long-term replacement for Kaya. 20 year old Argentinian striker with bags of potential.

 

Juan Videla

spacer.png

Another young Argentinian (21). He is planned as a backup central defender, but he is almost too good to be just that.

 

Karl Traub

spacer.png

Solid defender. The German (27) is our swiss army knife in defence, he can play every position there.

 

 

The Team

 

Goalkeepers

spacer.png

There is no competition for the number one. Yet.

 

Defenders

spacer.png

Finally we got a good central defender pair! To be honest, all 3 could play there, as Videla turned out better than expected.  Also can´t wait to see how Traub and Potts do on the pitch for us.

 

Midfielders

spacer.png

Rimmel Rennie! ´Nuff said!

 

Attackers

spacer.png

Both strikers could pose a thread to any defense. Achatz is also there.

 

Key Player

Ismail Kaya

No doubt about that. Hope he stays, as he is making noises again about leaving for a bigger club...

Slow Start

 

RESULTS

spacer.png

This is fine. We were damn lucky in the cup but then a strong game against RBL followed which gave us confidence to beat St. Pauli comfortably one week later. Looks like were on the right track now.

Our Europa League group looks not too easy.

RESULTS

Take a deep breath. We had no chance in our away games and lost deservedly. At least we recorded a nice win against Dortmund, we somehow seem to be their bogey team. I guess, Liege will finish last in our EL group.

it’s crazy how dominant they are. Being from Scotland we just had Celtics crazy dominance in which rangers broke. But it’s definitely a two team division so I can feel the pain of other fans in Germany being in a one team division

Hello Again Europe!

 

RESULTS

spacer.png

A lot of draws in February. And only one win in the league. Hertha knocks us out of the DFB Pokal as we fail to defeat them TWICE this month. But we are suddenly back in Europe! And what a comeback that is - we trash poor underdogs Sarajevo 6-1 but they manage to grab a credible draw in the 2nd leg. Hats off to them! Next we will face Olympiakos.

Exactly! We just couldnt manage to score against Leverkusen and Hertha although we were dominating those games. I don´t know, sometimes I really hate the game :)

One word to describe this months results: Tight. But, tight as the 2 legs were, we were able to overcome BMG and reach the semi finals of the ECL, where we face Fiorentina. Checking the other semi final, I realized the final could lead to a meeting with my old love!

spacer.png

That would be some final! (If we both make it there, that is...)

Of course Bayern are top again.

Yes! Finally we find our form again and deliver some important and crucial wins. Fiorentina wasnt a hard opponent at all, against my expectations and we made it to the Europa Conference League Final! And we meet my old club PEC Zwolle there! What a great final is that?

This final is worth a post on its own!

Phew! We are level on points with Leverkusen but we got one more goal in goal difference. Say Hi to the Champions League!

The Promised Lands Reloaded

 

spacer.png

THE FINAL

spacer.png

We won it. But it was some hard work. Only one player from the team that I left in 2031 was still there: Ritchie Geurtsen, the central midfielder I bought from Heerenveen for 12.5M back then. He is 35 now and still playing a vital role there. But even he could not prevent his team from defeat. We took a very aggressive approach to the game which resulted in a lot of bookings and a red card for Benjamin Muller shortly after the break. I feared Zwolle would come all over us then but they did not. They had some shots on our goal but most of them were from distance and did not even bother us. So, with 10 men we managed to break away once and Marquez scored our winner after a nice individual dribbling effort. We continued to defend with passion and then the whistle was blown and we had won the ECL!

Well done on the Conference League. I know people seem to be dismissing it as a competition but it's still something and you seem excited enough about winning.

Season Summary

 

spacer.png

spacer.png

spacer.png

spacer.png

Güler is the number one of the German national team, and it of course also showed in this season when he made the difference in a lot of our games. Ramirez is slowly declining, I am thinking about selling him. New Signing Eschweiler made the most games, mostly because of his versatility but also just because he is good. New striker Marquez did what we bought him for and Kaya again was our best player. Youngster Fitz is showing good progress in his development. He already got capped for the German U21. Same goes for Marinkovic who is already one level ahead in his progression.

Transfers & Our New Team

 

spacer.png

There he goes... We had to sell our best player Kaya, as he was already on the verge of poisoning the dressing room if he wasnt allowed to move. Good bye then. 

spacer.png

83M! But finally I got the player I was pursuing for some years now: Playmaker Ermin Cetic. I spotted him back when we played Red Star with Celta Vigo in the EL. Then I tried to sign him but we didnt have the money they wanted. Then he moved to China. I searched his name and found that he got a release clause of 31.5M. He wanted that we bring a companion to help him settle so we signed Karalic but he goes straight to the B team. In the end it worked. Tobias Orlov is a German rising U21 star so we snapped him up from 2nd division Osnabruck. Godfrey joins from Newcastle as we desperately needed a right winger after Kaya left. Farkas is a new striker and Buchner is an aging (33) former German international whose contract was running out and we said why not?

 

Nils Buchner

spacer.png

89 caps for Germany. The veteran central midfielder joins for 1 season.

 

Tobias Orlov

spacer.png

20 year old German U21 player. A pacey left winger.

 

Ermin Cetic

spacer.png

The 22 year old Bosnian has it all: Passing (18), First Touch (16), Decisions (17), Vision (17), Anticipation (17), Pace (16). What more do you need in a playmaker?

 

Leon Godfrey

spacer.png

5 caps for England. The 25 year old should help us on the right wing.

 

Robert Farkas

spacer.png

22 year old Serbian striker who could give Marquez some competition.

 

The Team

 

Goalkeepers

spacer.png

There is still no competition for the number one.

 

Defenders

spacer.png

No changes in defense. 

 

Midfielders

spacer.png

I hope the new playmaker will settle in quickly. Same goes for the other new signings, especially the wingers.

 

Attackers

spacer.png

Farkas is listed in the midfield section, but he and Marquez will battle it out in attack.

 

Key Player

Ayhan Güler

Our keeper leads from the back.

Season Summary

spacer.png

Cetic seems like a disappointment but he really wasn´t. He initiated most of our attacks and carried our offensive game most of the time. He will get better next season I am sure. Farkas was the best signing this season - 29 goals speak for themselves, even more than Marquez who played alongside him in our 2 striker tactic. Youngster Fitz continues his fast development with a nice goals and assists count, while our other youngster Marinkovic played himself into our first eleven with great performances in central midfield. Godfrey proved to be the right winger we were looking for and he delivered nicely too. Some players, like Potts and maybe Brand will have to leave though.
