Yes, please. That would secure Cologne finishes the season worse than we do.

:lol:

You guys are linked with Heiko Herrlich. Would that be better?

Also, seems like we got lucky with that foul against Benes, who might be back shortly as nothing was broken.

We also signed 16 year old US right back Joe Scally from NYCFC.
He'll join us in January 2021, after his 18th birthday.


Don't think it would be any improvement.
He was just swimming on the foundation Roger Schmidt built in Leverkusen without significant success.

My priority list:
1) I want Zeljko Buvac. Former assistant coach from Jürgen Klopp. Even living in Mainz right now.
2) Alternatively, Roger Schmidt would be an option. I think he inserted Havertz and Brandt into the Leverkusen starting XI...and we have quite a good youth right now but they are not given a chance in the Bundesliga team.
3) If those two are not possible, I want Benjamin Hoffmann, the U19-coach to take over. He at least knows the qualities of the youth players and would hopefully hesitate less to throw them in a game than Schwarz did.

Still only a third of the season played.

Their next two opponents are Augsburg and Union Berlin. Both winnable games.

4 points out of those two games and they are back in striking distance.

Yes, because they have no Gisdol.
I can't any improvements for the next games.

I love seeing Bayern lose. The world is a much better place when they struggle. Köln just managed to steal a point this weekend in what looked like a certain defeat.

Always good to get a dirty win against Frankfurt.
