Was foreseeable. Thanks Adi. I would kick his ass directly after the game. Get the bus driver in for the last games.

3 points and we should be through.

Kind of a lackluster performance today, I agree.
Ndicka 10th yellow. That will give us an advantage in 2 weeks. Feel like Ndicka has been great all season covering Kostic‘s defensive shortcomings.

I shouldn't be, but I'm happy for Mainz.

6 games in 20 days will be super tough for Hertha, especially with that much pressure on the team. Mostly winnable games though. We'll see how it plays out, but I can't say I'm super confident. And to be fair, Schalke, Hertha and Bremen are probably the teams who deserve to go down the most.

How was this guy so long a Hertha player Nathan?


Well, Pal Dardai likes to reward the guys who work really hard in practice. Skill or any kind of in-game production is not that important. You run a lot without doing much? Yeah, you're starting!

Glad we got rid of Dard...

Crap.

You should be rooting for Bremen to make it. Otherwise you‘ll be stuck with Selke again and not receive 10 mil. €

That said, I think Bremen are due to be relegated. Kohfeldt, Baumann...personally I think this duo is almost as bad as Schröder/Beierlorzer for us. What I dislike the most is their attitude. From every interview I kind of get the vibe that they - deep inside their mind - think they are a Europa League team and in the current position just due to some miraculously unlikely circumstances of bad luck. Which is not the case. They just suck.

Bremen got lucky that there were a lot of terrible teams in the league early on in this season and they picked up some points from them.
Now, they are looking to be their usual self with a 7 game losing streak.

Their remaining 3 Leverkusen (H), Augsburg (A), Gladbach(H) are not that bad, though.
Especially the last two given that Augsburg and Gladbach are in poor condition as well.

Hertha has 6 winnable games left.
3 wins and a draw should theoretically be enough to not be relegated.

You can start winning those after the Mainz game...

6 games in 20 days is kind of hard, though. Remember Dresden last year collapsed on a similar schedule.

Bayern paying 25 mil. to get Nagelsmann from Leipzig.

Probably more than the bottom 12 teams can spend on all new players on average. Pretty much sums up the inequality in the league.

Rouven Schröder is still available. :lol:

No seriously, just continue with Ben Manga.

3 points from 4 games should be enough to complete one of if not the most ridiculous comeback in league history.

Hopefully, we can get it done against Hertha today.

Ultimately we must play the games ahead of us and not think about what other teams are doing. Though keeping Hertha in relegation would be good.

Must win one of Freiburg and Hertha and then you got the free ride against Schalke to get ahead of Bielefeld and Bremen.
36 points will be enough to escape relegation, IMHO. 35 might be as well.

Meaning we have to get 1 point out of 3 games which will be hard enough given all of Frankfurt, Dortmund and Wolfsburg are still in the CL race.

I sure hope 35 is enough. If we can't beat Schalke then we deserve relegation. With our defense you just can't say for sure what will happen the next 3 games but I think we are capable of winning though I am biased ;)

Augsburg lost against Stuttgart. 33 points.
They have Bremen and Bayern left now.

Things could get ugly for them soon if they lose against Bremen next week.
