Labbadia has Hertha playing well. Must be encouraging Nathan.

Hertha was really good, but on the other side Union disappointed so much. Union can be glad to have already so many points, so they will not fear the relegation...

Encouraging for sure, but it's way too early to get my hopes for the future up. Definitely cool to see the combination of vets and young guys getting it done right now. Cunha is the most fun player Hertha had in a while. History tells us they will mess this up, though, so let's wait and see.

Next game in Leipzig will be the first real test for Labbadia.

They have Gladbach, Schalke and Frankfurt in their next 3.

Might be back in the hunt for 15th after those 3 games.

Brutal loss for Gladbach. The fight for the top 4 spots is going to be really interesting.

Being able to hear the players (w/out fans) is a cool element

1) Bayern
2) Dortmund
3) Leipzig
4) Leverkusen
5) Gladbach

Based on individual talent.

Expect this to be the final result, too.

Last week it was weird. Since this second journey, it is ok as a tv spectator.
Hopefully we won't have too many infections in this period...

I am at the point where I would gladly accept relegation if that meant getting rid of all the cancers on our team.

Naming this game today an embarrassing performance is sugarcoating here...

Pick any DM or defender you want.
Anyone of them couldn‘t stop a turtle from scoring.
Match-day 27...we have already 60 goals against. Previous worst defense was 57 goals against for a full season.

If it wasn‘t for the keepers doing a fairly great job we would be at 80+ goals against already. We are on prime HSV level of defense.

And the worst...you have players like Martin or Niakhate in the 11 looking like they don‘t give a damn because they want to leave in summer.

And then there is Edimilson Fernandes. Dude does not even seem to get the basic concept of standing in front of the ball when the opponent has a free kick to prevent that the opponent can quickly continue to play.

I am truly convinced that our u19 squad would not have lost 0-13 to Leipzig in any 2 game span.
There are quite a few good talents on the u19 squad...yet our incompetent coaching staff almost never plays anyone aged under 20.
On other teams...the staff notices much sooner when the top talents are ready for the league. Latest examples are Wirtz or Samardzic.

And then you have the coach playing CM as RB and RB as DM. Should‘ve stuck to being a school teacher.

If this team is not relegated this season...then they will be relegated next year. And it will be well deserved.

In two hours we will watch the german clasico between Bayern and Dortmund. Everybody is hoping for a win by Dortmund to make the remaining journeys in this season more interesting. But my feeling is that Bayern will dominate the game, like in most of their matchups and everybody will be disappointed by the performances fo the dortmund players.

Bayern have a beastly starting XI. Given they are at almost full strength, I think they will take care of this game.
Depth is their problem, though. Season could get interesting if Lewa or other key players injure themselves.

Well, now it's over. They're not blowing that lead.
