How has VAR not ruled that out? Kramer heads the ball onto his hand and then scores. If it doesn't hit his hand he doesn't keep the ball under control.

Gladbach were so poor. It was frustrating to watch them.

I still don't trust Dieter Hecking.

Haha, funny you say that. My mom is a big Mönchengladbach fan, and she always says Hecking isn't the right coach. I've come across a few other Gladbach fans who say the same. Weird.

Important match in Hannover today. If we don't get at least a point there, the win against Dortmund will have been for nothing. Hopefully we'll manage to show the same courage today as we usually show against the "big teams".

Du bist aber doch nicht hoffentlich einer dieser Fans, die sich beschweren, warum die Mannschaft nicht immer so einen Fußball spielt, wie gegen die großen Teams. Und nicht immer so viel Einsatz zeigt. xD

Ich beschwere mich nie über die Leistung der Mannschaft, weil es einfach total unrealistisch sind, das wir aufgestiegen sind :4_joy: Wenn wir mit diesem Kader die Klasse halten, ist das eine Sensation. Und wenn nicht, geht's halt wieder runter. Ich kenne Leute, die sagen das sie ihre Kutte für ein Jahr ablegen, wenn Fortuna "nur" die Relegation erreicht. Total bekloppt.

Ja, du hast halt immer ein paar richtige Experten dabei xD

Ich kenn jemanden, der hat letzte Saison, wo wir mal ein paar Spiele verloren haben (in einer Saison wo wir als Aufsteiger am Ende 7. geworden sind), gesagt, dass er ab sofort nicht mehr mit Trikot ins Stadion geht. Er wäre "durch mit den Arschlöchern". 

Aber ich meinte jetzt auch die Leute, die grundsätzlich nicht verstehen, dass man gegen Mannschaften, die oben stehen, ganz anders spielen kann und muss als gegen Mannschaften, wo man selber das Spiel machen muss.

Nach unserem Sieg in Köln gab es auch genug die der Meinung waren, die Mannschaft muss jetzt immer so spielen und die würden in den anderen Spielen nicht richtig kämpfen und so ein Unsinn.

Fucking RB.

What's even worse is that we still can't convert our chances and concede after such stupid individual mistakes like that Kruse's back pass to Pavlenka. Rashica is soooo fast but he just can't score it seems...two 100% chances wasted again. On a positive note, Johannes is finally starting to show his potential. Hope he signs a new contract soon.

Damn :( A great match altogether; have to admire Kohfeldt for wanting to win and bringing fourth striker on even after our equaliser xD Oh well. Last game this year, mid-table; not too shabby. The way we play we should have more points to be fair; but wasted chances and some defensive blunders have cost us a few matches...

By the way both Jojo Eggestein and Joshua Sargent are class.

Joshua has the potential to become a great player. Hopefully Bremen can hold on to him for a few years. 

Hope so too... He was playing for the reserves until very recently but seems to be making the break into the first squad now and already has two goals to his name! I doubt we'll manage to hold on to him for a long time; maybe 2-3 years at most and I even doubt that...depends if we start qualifying for Europe again then our chances should be a bit better. Very exciting talent at any case.

What a week. We doubled our points in 7 days, from 9 to 18. 9 points in 3 games within a week. Crazy. 

 

The match itself, well, first half both teams played pretty rubbish. In the 2nd half we had it under control but failed to score until Fink got lucky with a blunder from Hannovers keeper. But a deserved win. We even scored a goal earlier in the 2nd half, but the goal line technology said it wasn't in, even though it looked completely over the line on the replays. Can't trust these technologies. 

 

14th place now over the winter break, which is very nice. Hopefully we'll manage to sign a decent striker in the transfer window. Hennings is a hard worker, but that's it. Ducksch doesn't seem to have what it takes for Bundesliga level.

Bruno Labbadia can't be explained. 

Inga is still hoping that he will become a coach in Bremen one day.

I can't disagree that it's one of the more likable teams around, yes.

They've always been one of my favorites since starting to watch the league. Great history, incredible fan base, and overall just seems like a very likable club.
