A blockbuster dream – 11FREUNDE

A blockbuster dream – 11FREUNDE

What’s new? Taking part within the group of the Convention. The fantastic Effzeh has had many experiences in his historical past: Few (few) championships and cup wins, video games in varied European cups, promotion and relegation. However what the membership didn’t survive was participation within the Europa Convention League. Sure, the competitors has been round since final yr, nevertheless it’s nonetheless thrilling that it serves precisely its goal, that’s, to provide middle-class golf equipment from the higher components of the continent the sensation of enjoying the violin in Europe. Properly, alongside champions San Marino, Albania and Iceland, after all. Nevertheless it’s worldwide and you are not wanting on the reward of the European Cup within the mouth, or one thing like that.

What’s left (rattling it)? Maybe an addition that features participation within the European Cup in Cologne historically. So a time filled with chapter, worries and the hazard of resignation. After qualifying for the Uefa Cup in 1985, Cologne misplaced out the next yr on the ultimate day of the match. It was truly a relegation battle in 1993 after the group certified for the 1992 European Cup. Within the 2017/18 season, when Kölle beat Arsenal within the Europa League, they have been eleven factors wanting their Bundesliga hopes, and Cologne have been relegated. After shedding the cup on the weekend in Regensburg, a impartial observer sadly has to say: it’s not inconceivable that the billy goats will discover themselves in a relegation combat relatively than in a renewed combat for Europe.

What’s lacking? Large cash. Qualifying for the Europa Convention League doesn’t change that. The monetary state of affairs of the membership is tight, additionally due to the pandemic. Financially and structurally, the FC is a serious restructuring venture,” stated Christian Keller, sporting director of 1. FC Köln, to the Kölner Specific in Could. The membership even raised ticket costs on the Müngersdorfer Stadion by round 20 p.c. Prime gamers and prime earners similar to Anthony Modeste or Sebastian Andersson can nonetheless be offered. Younger folks come at no cost or come for a small payment. These accountable might develop the group with Steffen Tigges, Sargis Adamyan or Erik Martel due to extra burdens than to strengthen. If a few of the finest gamers go away, it might fall on the hooves of the invoice goats. However the membership took precautions final saturday. As a result of elimination of the cup, the load is just three (potential) double load. Sensible.

If this membership have been a drink: Good & low-cost coke. A cola that actually needs to be like all different well-liked and profitable smooth drinks. In comparison with the massive gamers, nevertheless, it has modest prospects. And when it was purchased, it thinks it has already arrived on the Cola Olympus (Effzeh coach Steffen Baumgart in a 1:2 pleasant victory in opposition to AC Milan: Successful a recreation like this in Cologne cannot be good in any respect, so you will not catch anybody right here.”). Grocery store consumers take a bottle from the bottom shelf and spot the skinny and cheaply produced bundle. Saving prices however dreaming of being a blockbuster – that is not the way it works.

11 KIND OF Oracle: In fact, it is going to occur as standard in Cologne for the previous few a long time. Within the playoffs of the Convention, Effzeh will combat in opposition to CSKA Sofia within the group stage, solely to be eradicated there in opposition to Konyaspor, Good and Molde. Due to the European video games, the record of accidents is rising and the scale of the group is beneficial, however Baumgart is searching for the identical high quality in useless. Skills like Denis Huseinbasic, Mathias Olesen and Tim Lemperle needs to be within the beginning XI. Issues will probably be higher within the second half of the season as a result of after the DFB Cup, Cologne will be unable to play within the European Cup and the injured will return. On the thirty second matchday, Effzeh made it clear that they’ll at all times be in opposition to Hertha. Ultimately it was sufficient for thirteenth place.
