I'd rather see SGE than Frankfurt, so I don't get hungry

SGE has been the biggest surprise so far. It is amazing how they can again build an entertaining team for a very limited transfer amount. Also great to see how the betrayal of Fredi Bobic hasn’t had a negative impact.
Glasner effect. You see how good he is if you watch Wolfsburg this season. Might be one of the best Coaches around under the radars.

German Cup is on, we're at the round of 16 now and it feels like a wide open race without Bayern involved. 5-6 of these 16 teams aren't in the Bundesliga.

Koln vs Hamburg on, one of the standard fixtures of the Bundesliga for ages, now they can only meet at the cup :p

1860 Munchen vs Karslruhe ensures that at least one lower league side will make quarters.

Koln have a really good team this season. I will be surprised if they don't qualify.

Speaking of Koln, what a weird player Modeste is. He had exploded few years ago in Bundesliga which granted him a move to China. Then he returned in Europe, first in Koln and then in France, where he couldn't score for shit and out of the blue he's scoring for fun this season.

Koln's turn of events reminded me of Inter v Lazio with the very late PK, but this time the home team failed to win.



For years this has been the best cup tournament in the sport by far.

Two quarter finalists are from lower leagues and a third may advance unless Dortmund wakes up. Dortmund's proper starting XI mind you.

German Cup is fun this season. Both Bayern and Dortmund are out of quarter-finals for the first time since 2006/07. Half of the teams are coming from Zweite Liga:

Hamburg (beat Koln), Karlsruhe (beat 1860), Hannover (beat Gladbach), St. Pauli (beat Dortmund).

In the end Leipzig will probably win it but it will be fun if an underdog pulls it off.

such a shame the fans aren't really present.

Would be fun if we have a HSV-St Pauli quarter. We had a Berlin derby in the R16 where Union beat Hertha 3-2 away.

Some studies showing that this can happen in men under 30 following contracting COVID, fucking sucks. Hope he recovers alright.
It's also a side effect of the vaccine particularly among younger people. I hope he recovers in perfect health.
