HSV just rolled over.

And the situation at the top:

Spain: Barcelona (29 g) 75p 24-3-2 90-33 (+57) 86% of possible points
England: Manchester United (30 g) 77p 25-2-3 70-31 (+39) 86% of
possible points
Germany: Bayern (27g) 72p 23-3-1 78-13 (+65) 89% of possible points

seems not *that* different.

Although Bayern's 'goals against' is of course impressive.
HSV equalised the season record for away goals scored
in the Allianz Arena today.

Ciao,
Werner

Yes, we are back to being our old selves. AFAIK this equalises our
previous record Bundesliga defeat?

 Apparently the last 2 League matches there between those 2 were won

 Hamburg are certainly on a poor run with regards to away matches
against Bayern!

This certainly does justify my picking Gomez and van der Vaart as my
Fox in the box pairing, especially since I needed 11 goals.  So i
stick by my decision , it was sound in theory.  I can't read the
future, i can only theorize what will happen based on previous
knowledge.
The only problem being. Gomez did not start or even make the subs
bench.  Again, I stand by my pick, even if it was based in nostalgia.
Back in 2012 Super mario  was scoring at the Euro\s and top scorer of
the bundesliga, so it makes sense, a year later he would be a good
pick to score many goals?

Unfourtanetly, based on the speed of his second decline, I expect him
to be playing for SV Ried next season.  I think the lesson I have
learned from all of this, is if you have a Super Mario as top scorer
and then replace him with another Super Mario, the new Super Mario
will take all the mojo from the original Super Mario  unless of course
you have a variable in the mix.  Like say, an old Peruvian striker?

Now, if you were to ask me, should a Gomez be replaced automatically
by a Peruvian in FOTB?  The answer would be, yes.  It is the only
logical choice!

My Bundesliga picks are another thing, my whole Easter resurrection
theory was way off.  Not one single relegation team got a point.  Now
this may have something to do with them all playing vs teams finally
getting serious about European spots, or more likely, had something to
do with a German pope retiring, leaving Easter as an impotent,
meaningless thing now for most Germans?  Yeah, we all thought it was
fun when we had a German pope, we would wear the silly clothing, go to
this cold building every few Sundays, have some wine, sing, read, get
preachy and have some laughs, but now Sundays and Easter are serious
again!

Second decline... ROFLMAO

Pizzarrrrroooooo, but seriously the goal Robben scored where he backheeled
it was insane, especially the finish from a fine player back in form, I
think Juve have a hot Robben to deal with!!!

ROFLMAO, logical yes, all it needed was your consent, and I would have
written "+ 4 (Claudio Pizzaro INSIDE, Claudio Pizzaro INSIDE, Claudio
Pizzaro INSIDE, Claudio Pizzaro INSIDE)

We are their punching bag, and almost always have been. Without us
giving them the points for free they'd probably have a third less
titles...

So on the Easter weekend when Relegation teams were supposed to come
back (at least according to my brilliant theory), not one single
relegation team wins, let alone one single underdog wins?????

Frth  -       Frankfurt       2:3 (1:1)
frankfurt have not scored in weeks, and furth have an Easter kind of
theme about them, yet nothing!  furth are relegated, though not
mathematically assured we are declaring them relegated

Wolfsburg       -       Nrnberg (So.)         2:2 (2:0)
According to my formula, Wolfsburg are now free of the Relegation
zone.  But when I made my picks, they were not and they are three
points behind Nurnburg, so they really should have won this game if we
follow the Easter rejuvenation theory.

FC Bayern       -       HSV     9:2 (5:0)
Not even I thought it would be this bad for HSV.

Schalke         -       Hoffenheim (Sa.)        3:0 (0:0)
Hoff can still make it out of relegation mathematically, but it will
not happen, they may make the relegation play off though?

Dsseldorf     -       Leverkusen      1:4 (1:1)
I am not prepared to predict Fortuna safe yet.  though at worst they
will only fall to the play off relegation spot

Freiburg        -       Gladbach        2:0 (0:0)
I probably picked a tie here, even though freiburg were behind
gladbach in the standings prior to this game

Augsburg        -       Hannover        0:2 (0:0)
Augsburg can still get relegated, play in the relegation play off or
be safe?

Stuttgart       -       Dortmund        1:2 (0:1)
though they lost, Stuttgart are now safe from relegation (according to
my formula)

Mainz   -       Bremen  1:1 (1:0)
werder are still in playoff relegation danger

3 of the last 4 matches, the 3 home ones, 2 goals against per game.
We will have to be better on Tuesday.

HSV seem to make a habit of that...  they've rolled over like that at
times in the past also against BvB or Bremen when one of these have been
driving towards a title.

So that you will beat us 11-2?  No, the truth is that in this moment
Bayern is approaching football perfection. They are firing on all
cylinders, have the Bundesliga title under their belt, so they will be
fully concentrated for the Juve match.

I say that if we get out of the Allianz Arena with less anything less
than  a two-goal deficit, I'll be happy.

I think you'll get the away goal and we will have to get it done down
there next week.  We've given up 2 in each of the last 3 home matches.
And you just beat Inter away.  I still recall our last match against them.

The defense is basically gone. Juve is going to have a field day.
Sure, the attack was enough to get a win against HSV, but Juve is
another class. Imagine HSV taking on Juve in an important European
match? Laughable isn't it?

In a row after the game, Weidenfeller called Harnik
a "wannabe ?si".
Which really only makes sense if Weidenfeller thinks
that being Austrian is a such a high honour that Harnik
is not worthy?

Those two have averaged 0.61 goals/game and now they score 5 in one?
Must be fix.

New coach for the rest of the season. Probably won't make a difference.

This was their big chance to move up.

This was the resurrection weekend. In the space of 5 minutes Saturday
I went from 8 to 19 points. Lost some of it again, as Schalke and
Leverkusen kept scoring, but it was enough.

70 points total. Better than the last two weeks, I guess. Surprise of
the week (2 points) was Augsburg losing. That's mindblowing. Anti-surprise
was Stuttgart - Dortmund 1-2 at 13 points.

Red jersey:    
Jesper  424
MH      396
Sven    383
Werner  375
Binder  354

Not a good week for the Binder comeback.

Stage wins:    
Jesper  10
Werner  6

MH      5
Binder  3

My first win since round 19.

Rckrunde              
Sven    159     (2)
Binder  145     (1)
Jesper  145     (5)
Werner  137     (3)
MH      136     (4)

This one got moved around a lot (position last week).
