I like Christian Streich, I dont think many outside of Freiburg do? He seems to actually coach teams and develop players, unlike so many "TV managers", who are good at interviews.  Having said that, a VfB win suits Bremen better.  Probably a draw though.

1-1

Saturday 17th March, 2018
Gladbach vs Hoffenheim

This is National Irish Day, so green vodka will flow, though hopefully not as early as this game comes on, here on the Iceberg.  I thought I saw something on kicker about bmg in crisis?  Still think they should beat Hoff, who are working back up to Europa/UCL points-not sure they will do it, sold too many players last year and didn't replace enough of them with quality.

3-2


Frankfurt vs Mainz

Dont know how Eintracht are doing it this season?  You look at the team and it is nothing special, not to mention, it is an age old footballing proverb that you can never win a game if you have Kevin Prince Boateng in your line up.

2-1


Augsburg vs Werder Bremen

I dont like Augsburg, not the city, the team.  I dont like how they play, they have always been this plucky,dirty, hard working team.  Yet they have remained up for how many years now?  These are the type of teams Werder lose to, but I cant pick Augsburg and sleep at night, though after National Irish day, I will probably have no problem fallin asleep.

0-1


Hamburg vs Hertha Berlin

 

HSV goin down like a Lead filled Zeppelin, mostly because they cant score goals.

0-1


Wolfsburg vs Schalke17.30

I would have to say VW is in crisis, both on and off the field.  Actually, they seem to be coping with the off field crisis.  Meanwhile, Schalke is second place, that is until Bayern buy up half their players.

1-2

Sunday 18th March, 2018
Borussia Dortmund vs Hannover, 12.30

Oh dear.... I watched the Red Bull v BVB yesterday and being half Austrian and having lived there for a while, of course I was happy to see the real Red Bull win the tie, they are not a bad team, showed some nice play at times, worked hard for each other etc.  But man did Dortmund look poor, like they were not there,  watching the game go by them.  Did they put inlader rum in the water bottles?

2-1


Koln vs Leverkusen, 14.30

Yeah, last chance for Koln....uhmmm... no.

1-2


RB Leipzig vs Bayern Munich, 17.30

Match of the weekend!!!! except that it wont be.  Bayern will play whatever players they did not play vs Besiktas and win by however many goals they feel like.  I think the only question/crisis at Bayern, is when/if Neuer is coming back?

1-4

Super Mario lives!!!!  Puts in a cross within a few minutes.  I have not even located my green die to pour into my favourite beverages yet.

I prefer to think of Petersen as an ex Bremen striker :D

Yes, seems like a lot of ex werder strikers kicking around still. 

 

For those of you who must be wondering if JLow has picked Super Mario and Nils Peterson, for the upcoming friendlies (not sure how friendly the Brazilians will be?) the answer is yes and no.

Please note the the present 'coach' is not playing the two main and valuable players at the moment. Leon is not interested anymore (it shows by the way he goes about the job) and young Max is sitting on the bench match after match.  Embolo cost the most and gets a few minutes each game and Harit has almost disappeared.  Selling players at the moment will not make any difference and we have the easiest run-in to the end of the season.  Our 'past-it old men' will continue to be lucky and who can guess where we will finish?

Well we also said that about Nouri last season, so I'm a bit reluctant to praise Kohfeldt at this point, but things are definitely looking good since he took over :P

Just give the man some holiday from summer until fall. Werder should look for a coach who is willing to sign for 2 or 3 months and is known for having a good start.

Might be something for Jupp Heynckes. In the summer he helps out in Bremen and for the rest of the year he has time for his dog.

Fahrmann is a beast.

He's surely a very good keeper, but it also was a poorly taken penalty... Wolfsburg should seriously go down. Even instead of HSV.

Every time I watch them play, I can't wrap my head around them actually being second in the league.

Video killed the Bayer come back. VAR assisted red card to Alario. Koln actually have been the better team so far, though bayer were getting into it up until the off the ball, needless, elbow by Alario

Alario gets sent off for elbowing a Köln player behind referees back, well done by VAR for intervening.

I wonder if VAR will change players habits knowing they can get tugged during the game rather than it being left until after.. I suppose some will wise up while others will never learn..

Yeah, I think most simply aren't capable of thinking about consequences at the heat of the moment, so we're always going to have some incidents. Which is not a bad thing, to be honest xD

For the most part I like and agree with having VAR ( or whatever they are going to call it), in this day and age you need some way of going back and checking things that can be checked.  I prefer having an independent  team looking at the video, but I can see some people not liking the time delay.

I had to look this up.

Ever since I discovered every video ever made is on youtube and my tv has you tube, and my tv goes through my stereo, I have been watching a lot of  old you tube concerts and such.  Oh and yes, that is how everyone looked in the late 70s and 80's.

The Pretenders have probably been the better team in the second half, but you could sense that Koln wold score on the counter. 2-0 and bad news for HSV
