At this time, it would appear that Koln and HSV have not really lost any players, so odds are good they come back up.  Kiel lost their goalscorer, so not sure if the promotion dream will continue for the new boys.

So excited for this. Not only are HSV expected to actually win some games this season (lol), but I can’t wait to see what Titz does with a full preseason of preparation. Our preseason went very well, we actually have a defent and balanced winger stable for the first time during my time as a HSV fan, and I’m very excited to see how the youngest side in the 2. BuLi fares in our rebuilding bid. The hours until this game will absolutely drag, no doubt.

Hamburg just love fighting for relegation. 

 

Clearly.

I think we’ll be okay though. Narey didn’t work as a lone striker, and we clearly, desperately need a top noice CB to pair with young RvD. Bates just not up to par yet. Man the fuck up and buy Bikakcic, Becker.

From what I gathered, Koln taking Anfang from Kiel and subsequently Drexler, via Denmark, was going to have a massive negative effect on Kiel and they'd struggle to replicate the highs of last season. Turns out, that might not be the case.

They lost Czichos too, who just scored for Köln on his debut as well. 

Köln lead 2-0 so far, good second half.

Wow, 2nd div starts already, it still seems too early for me (it is like 40C outside!).  Do you now no why Arp is playing Reserves?  I thought he would have a big year, picked him on my kicker interactive team.

HSV lose the first North Derby and I mean really first, dont think they have ever played each other before? I guess HSV did lose more players than I thought, Koln on the other hand still kept key players like Timo Horn and Jonas Hector.   Monday night football too, is that new this season?

Monday matches have been there in the 2. Liga since early 90s.

As for Arp, I was also surprised to see him in the reserves. Granted, he was barely even noticeable in their 0:4 loss against our U23 team either, so maybe just not really match fit yet.

Just checked. Holstein Kiel were runners up to HSV in the okd Regionaliga Nord in 1953 and 1957. I must get a life.

We actually didn't lose very many, let alone crucial ones. The only critical player we've lost from last season, we didn't even lose to transfers, as it was Papa who we lost to a knee ligament injury. Otherwise, we've kept all of our important players. Kostic is likely to go, but he never really has hit his value for us anyway, and really wasn't all too important last year.

The problem, by my impression, was excessive nerves from a squad with very little 2. BuLi experience. Khaled Narey was our only player who's recently played in the division, and he was pushed out of position into a lone striker role, and so isolated from the team (especially since we don't play with a No 10) and the ability to impact the game with some experience. The team just did not look like the side which faced Monaco the week before, and seemed to have forgotten so many of the instructions and system established by Titz. 

Point is, I think we'll still be okay, but it's going to take a bit of settling down. I think Papa was a lot more important than many Hamburgers are willing to admit, both for his athleticism but also his personality and presence. Our young Dutchman, Rick van Drongelen, looks to be moving into that role, but he's still young and still gets phased by making mistakes. Papa wasn't perfect and made mistakes of his own, but he was fantastic at just shrugging them off and playing on. If RvD can continue to mature into a role as a back line leader, this will do this incredibly young team a lot of good. 

Really looking forward to the match tomorrow, as I view it as a good way to settle down. We're away from the imposing and impatient Volkparkstadion, in a small stadium, against a side we really should beat. Settle down, remember Titz' system, don't get distracted by Sandhausen's outlandishly handsome Gislason, and play a bit of football, then we'll see how we do settling into this league.
