    Werder Bremen Champions League profile

    Well after Enricos' detailed Anderlecht profile I thought I would do profiles for the other two teams starting with the Germans.

    Werder Bremen

    Official website:

    Some great players have touched Werder Bremen in their careers such as Rudi Voller(97 goals), Mario Basler(36 goals), Torsten Frings(?? goals) and more recently, Ailton(88 goals).And just last season they were one of the shocks in the German Bundesliga, winning the title comfortably over giants Bayern Munich.

    The team:

    Despite the sale of some of their best players at the end of last season most notably Ailton and Krstajic,Werder Bremen still has a strong side with a team capable of beating anyone when in their prime.

    Goalkeepers:Reinke, Borel, Walke

    Defenders:Fahrenhorst, Pasanen, Baumann, Nery, Magnin, Ismael

    Midfielders:Ernst, Davala, Stalteri, Lisztes, Micoud, Lagerblom, Jensen, Borowski, Schulz

    Strikers:Charisteas, Klose, Hunt, Klasnic, Stier, Valdez

    In bold = Key Player

    In green = New Player

    The coach:

    Thomas Schaaf

    Career as a coach:
    1987-1995: A-Youth SV Werder Bremen
    1995-1999: Coach Regional League team SV Werder Bremen and Head Coach SV Werder Bremen Young Talents
    09.05.1999-??: Head Coach Bundesliga

    It can be said that this squad is not as strong as last seasons but it is still strong.

    Werder Bremens achievments:

    Bundesliga - 1964/1965, 1987/1988, 1992/1993, 2003/2004
    Cup Winners Cup - 1991/1992
    Intertoto cup - 1998

    Their season so far...

    Werder Bremen have already okayed two games in this years Bundesliga and sit on top of the table with two wins out of two (6 points).The reigning champions beat highly fancies Schalke 04 1-0 and Hansa Rostock 4-0 away from home.Updates to come.

    The Stadium:


    Capacity - 42 466 (32 506 seats)
    Built - 1997

    Good profile Fabio. Perhaps you should add how they did last season and change the colour since green kinda camouflaged the words.

    I've seen quite a bit of Werder Bremen on FSW. They are a good organized side. Micoud the playmaker is IMO the best player to replace Zidane in the French NT setup. He maybe already 30 but he is a great player. Great passing, control, etc. Werder are definately no pushovers since they won the German League last season.

    The addition of them in our group makes this group, in my eyes, the group of death.

    Diego Simeone (

    Werder Bremen's rise to prominence last season was one of the highlights of a fine fine Bundesliga season in terms of entertainment. Playing attractive football with the likes of now departed Ailton (direct and classy finisher) and Micoud, they steamrolled a lot of teams with ease. No doubt, the CL is a different matter, but they could be the surprise package (I have hunch that they'll finish 2nd to knock Valencia out of the CL).

    They have replaced their 2 important players (Mladen Krstajic DF and Ailton ST) of last season with Frank Fahrenhorst, possible German international regular defender in the future (tall and can grab goals from set pieces) and Miroslav Klose (German international striker, decent finisher but nothing more).

    Player for player they should be a weaker side from last term, yet the emergence of Klasnic (exceptional all round striker) and the coolness of Ernst (one of the best players in the Bundesliga last season) should still cause sides headaches.
