Football and other sports

Okay. Since Di and I totally hijacked the Chat Thread with our football talk and started to think that maybe some of you who don't like football will get bored with reading our musings about The Beautiful Game, we decided to start a thread for general sports discussion - for ALL sports outside tennis. So if you love football, icehockey, fencing, Formula 1, cycling, figure skating, curling, skiing races, biathlon and whatever else is out there - feel free to join in here!

Right now, I am following the CL scores on and so far, it's looking good, as Liverpool and Barcelona both are leading. Also, Atletico Madrid are kicking some PSV Eindhoven's ass. Which is good. Because I don't like the Lightbulbs. :devil: (I support Ajax Amsterdam in the Dutch league, and they are rivals!) Just Werder Bremen give me a bit of a headache right now, it's 0-0 vs some Cypriot team I have never heard of, Anorthosis Famagusta or something. Go Werder.

:banana::woohoo: Kiwi:hug::worship:

Yay for Liverpool:banana: My mates all chose to ring me, so got distracted, so didn't see the 2nd half, but Liverpool were deserved winners in my view.

OMG my mate in Sheffield she will be so smugly happy:angel:. Well she supports the red half(United) and they drew after having a man sent off for serious foul play:tape: The other side of Sheffield, the blue half - well they lost errr quite badly, well very badly at Reading:o And she can go to watch her team play my team on Saturday, because she found a babysitter:woohoo: Its gonna be such fun for the two of us on Saturday:angel:

Oh and I am crazy about motorcycling too, don't know if I've ever mentioned that, thats for another time;)

Looking forward to seeing more sportslovers here soon;) Sports rock:rocker2:

Ooh, I'm gonna like this thread ;) Good idea!

09-17-2008, 06:38 PM
Hey Deanna! Nice to see you here as well. Well, I was hoping you'd join, to be honest, because I know that you love footie, too. :)

Anyway. Aside from football and tennis, here is a list of the sports I like lots as well:

- SKIING RACES, especially Downhill and Super-G. OMG, the SPEED! I've been to some races and it was amazing.

- BIATHLON. I am truly obsessed with it once winter comes and I can watch it on TV.

- handball. Especially when there's international tournaments such as WC or EC going on. Love the German squad the most and follow TBV Lemgo and HSG D/M Wetzlar a bit.

- anything adrenaline involved, especially skydiving. That one is obvious. ;)


- some motorsports. Used to be a HUGE Formula 1 fanatic, but my interest has ceased a bit during the past couple of years. I still tune in, but the thrill is gone.

Occasionally, I'll watch basketball, track and field, icehockey and skijumping.

Tonight, more CL action. sat1 will air Steaua Bucuresti vs FC Bayern and I will be watching. Let's see how well Bayern will do on international soil and under their new coach.

And before I end this here, I have to admit, while I am interested in the sports first and foremost, I can't help being a shallow fangirl from time to time and drool over the hotties on a football pitch (mostly). Hehe.

09-17-2008, 07:09 PM
This thread is a great idea :)

09-17-2008, 09:10 PM
Hi Chrissie! :wavey: Nice to see you here as well. :)

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhh!! I just found out that the match 1. FSV Mainz 05 vs SV Wehen Wiesbaden will be a Monday evening match and thus be on TV. :bounce: Thing is - Mainz and Wiesbaden have a rivalry going on, so this should be a very interesting one. I happen to like both teams, but I think I lean a bit more towards SVWW now, although 05 are nice. I just shouldn't admit to that in SVWW's forum, otherwise I'd get kicked out there. :p :lol:

Anyway. Yeah, I'll be in front of our TV that evening, and they better show my Ronny a little more often or ... :mad: Personally, I wouldn't mind seeing him do the same thing he did to Cologne last season when he scored a hat-trick within seven minutes - the fastest hat-trick to have ever been scored in the history of the second division. :worship: So I guess now you know why I dig that guy (aside from the fact that he is totally hot)?

09-18-2008, 12:35 AM
Norwich 0 QPR 1:bigcry: Basically, everything that could go wrong did, all after Matt Connolly of QPR got sent off in the 1st half an hour. Yes, we were still attacking, but they do as all teams do after a sending off, defend tightly, work harder for each other. Then worse, 7 minutes later we were that goal down, a retaken free kick after our captain Mark Fotheringham, came out too early to block:( The retake from just outside the area was thundered in.(sigh)

They had brought on Latvian defender Kaspars Gorkss to replace a striker following the sending off, and this also helped to change the game. We struggled to make the extra man count, and the final pass was indecisive. At half-time the boss gave us a talking too surely, because we suddenly came out firing at the start of the 2nd half:)

And, Glenn Roeder made a change which saw our winger Lee Croft come on to replace out striker Italian Artur Lupoli. As has been the case this season, when Darel Russell was also pushed up front it made the difference and we came back into the game. But then we saw our new signing Mark Kennedy have to leave the field limping, and our seasoned striker Jamie Cureton have to depart the field with a bloody head wound:awww: Our other striker Antoine Sibierski made a real nuisance of himself in the final quarter of an hour, suddenly we were shooting in, but the ball just would not nestle into the back of the net. One of those nights against a team who are scoring goals for fun, and are going to be taken over by very rich owners very soon. Money talks:sobbing:

Other sports I like, well motorcycling, love little Spaniard Dani Pedrosa, and Aussie Casey Stoner:worship: I love to watch cricket, anywhere I can too, in the summer. Its such a great game, but games never seem to finish positively because of our stupid:rain: I mean it takes 4 days to settle a interstate game, or in our case a County game, and there is rarely a win for one team over the other because the elements get in the way:mad:

I am in love with the Aussie cricket team, my favourite players, wow so many,but I so miss Gilly, and Glenn McGrath. The Waugh brothers, legends:rocker2: Ricky Ponting, what a batsman, what a captain:worship: For England, Stuart Broad and Kevin Pietersen.

I like to watch most sports, but its tennis, football, cricket and motorcycling that excite me most and get my pulse racing. I have photos, OMG so many, will post some when I have the time to sort the great ones from the average:lol:

Deanna, Chrissie good to see you here too:hug: Looking forward to some more sporting stories, from more of you lovely chicas.

Chicos, where are you, this is for you too;) Come in and see us;)

09-18-2008, 06:05 PM
Sorry to hear about Norwich's loss, Di. :hug:

Right now, I am listening to VfL Wolfsburg vs Rapid Bucuresti, and I freaking don't like both. :mad: :( Rapid took us out in UEFA Cup a while ago (but then again, we didn't deserve winning because we completely sucked in both matches ...), and Wolfsburg simply are a team I could gladly do without. In addition, there are two ex Hertha players playing for them (Alexander Madlung, once a hero of mine because it was HIS goal which definitely saved us from being relegated several years ago; and Ashkan Dejagah), but ever since they signed a contract with THAT team, they moved to my black list and I consider them traitors now. However, the game seems to be a good one.


Excuse me, but I gotta post what I want:

this is SV Wehen Wiesbaden's home shirt (I once posted it in the Chat Thread as well, but since the I-want-that-shirt-issue is still going on in my mind ...)


And all three shirts (the white one looks okay to me, but the light blue one somehow doesn't do it for me; I want mine to have 13 and KÖNIG on the back, and in black and red, of course!)

(both stolen from SVWW's website)

So yeah, when I have 80 Euros to spend somewhere, I'll buy it. It looks pretty, I love the collar, and I just want to add items to my ever-expanding football collection. I usually collect scarves, but shirts are also very welcome. :p :devil:

09-20-2008, 12:56 PM
Okay. This is what I'll get this weekend:

Borussia Mönchengladbach (they used to be really big in the 70s) vs HERTHA BSC BERLIN
SC Freiburg vs SV WEHEN WIESBADEN (saw them both last season and my SVWW boys won 2-0 there and thus stole Freiburg their last chance to get promoted, match is tomorrow).

If it were me, I'd have gone to Gladbach this morning to cheer my Hertha Boys on and from there to Freiburg to watch Wehen-Wiesbaden tomorrow. I am nuts, I know. However, I plan to do exactly that next year. Steffi suggested to go to SVWW's very last homegame of the season, and I am pretty sure that I'll be travelling to Karlsruhe (we have a so-called Fanfreundschaft with them which means that Hertha and Karlsruhe-supporters get along very well), as Karlsruhe is only 2.5hrs away from me by train. Completely do-able for a day-trip. I'd be back home some time in the evening and then take the train to Frankfurt and from there to Wiesbaden on Sunday. Hey, I live only once, right? :lol: Groundhopping light. ;) But back to the SCF - SVWW game: dad and I are having a bit of a playful argument here. Dad is still slightly attached to Freiburg, while I am full on SVWW now, and I told him that SVWW were going to kick their asses (Freiburg are currently 3rd in the ranking, while Wehen-Wiesbaden are 13th, having only three points from three draws and one defeat, and only one point ahead of the last ranked team). And dad was like, "Yeah, right! Wehen will lose!" Me, "No way. Just so you wait, Ronny will score again!" (He hasn't scored since some time last season ...)

BTW, I consider THIS ( for SV Wehen Wiesbaden, although I am still rather new to them and not really sure if I can already consider myself a fan ...

Also, Liverpool have a home match vs Stoke City. Bring it on.

09-20-2008, 10:21 PM
Sorry for spamming, but


So, Werder Bremen travel all the way down to Munich, lacking three important players, and what happens? They win that freaking match 5-2! :worship: Last time a team got five goals past a Bayern goalie was more than 30 (!) years ago (Bayern lost 0-7 back then), and Werder never managed to score more than three goals against them.


Now all I need is a Ronny goal and a Wehen-Wiesbaden victory vs Freiburg tomorrow and this weekend is perfect, since Hertha BSC won in Gladbach. Admittedly, it was a bit lucky, but what matters more is that we won there, and thereby secured three valuable points. Yay.

09-23-2008, 09:10 PM
Bayern lost 5-2:o

I went to watch Norwich play Sheffield United on Saturday,we won 1-0 in the 90th minute - Lee Croft curler:woohoo: My poor friend who is a Sheffield United fan, made it to the game, but bet she wishes she had stayed home. Sheffield United had so many chances, they just couldn't hit a barn door:lol: Our last gasp win puts us in the top half of the table:banana: I took some pics of the outside of the Carrow Road stadium, I'll post them when I have time;) The pics I took of the match,they were a disaster:mad: So,I'll probably scan a few pictures in from the local paper.

Yay for Hertha:dance: It doesn't matter how you win as long as you do;)

Kiwi those Wiesbaden shirts are sooooooo nice:hearts:

09-24-2008, 04:14 PM
Football action tonight! Cup matches. We're playing away in Dortmund vs Borussia Dortmund who lost two matches in a row: their UEFA Cup match vs Udinese Calcio (0-2) and the league match to TSG 1899 Hoffenheim who only got promoted this year. So far, Hoffenheim are the surprise of the league, being second behind FC Schalke 04. Our record in this DFB Pokal (as the competition is called) isn't the best, to be honest here. Last time, we lost to third league team Wuppertaler SV in a rather shameful matter, and the year before, we were leading 2-0 at St Pauli and still lost the match because we started strutting around on the pitch. Yikes. The only time when Hertha BSC had some success in this competition dates back to 1993 when our amateur team reached the final (and lost 0-1 to Bayer Leverkusen). But other than that - forget about Hertha BSC and DFB Pokal. :rolleyes:

SV Wehen Wiesbaden are up at home vs Alemannia Aachen. With the exception of the first round in DFB Pokal, SVWW haven't won a single match (friendlies and small tournaments don't count) since the 2008/2009 season started. What makes matters worse is that a certain striker whom I happen to like a whole lot (actually, it borders on being obsessed with him) hasn't scored since 1,300 minutes (which is QUITE A LOT). He needs a goal really bad, and I don't care if it's a rebound, a freekick, a bicycle kick or a header. He just needs that one damn goal to build up confidence and end his non-scoring streak. :) But the main problem is that SVWW's game is built up around Ronny, and of course their opponents know that and try to take him out of the game. :rolleyes: However, I hope he'll have a great evening and the boys aren't too down from their shameful performance (they lost 0-5 in Freiburg on Sunday, the only player who had a halfwhat decent - as far as you can say "halfwhat decent" if your opponents get five balls past you! - was their goalie Alex Walke) in Freiburg ... I hear there won't be too many spectators in SVWW's BRITA Arena (nicknamed Filter) tonight, yesterday, there were only roughly 3,000 (!!) tickets sold. I wish I could be there and cheer the boys on!

Some other matches that took place yesterday: 1860 Munich won vs MSV Duisburg after a penalty shootout. Yay. And 1. FSV Mainz 05 won the Battle of Carnival vs 1. FC Köln (both towns are known for their carnival celebrations) 3-1. What pissed me off is that Energie Cottbus won 3-0 over Gladbach. :mad: I bloody hate Cottbus!! :mad::mad::mad: Oh well.

FC Bayern's match vs The Club (the nickname Nuremberg have) is on TV tonight. WHYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY always Bayern's matches? At least on free TV ... if I had payTV I'd prolly switch to and fro between SVWW and Hertha BSC. :devil:

Okay. That's it for now.

All the best for my teams tonight!

09-24-2008, 09:41 PM


*totally abusing capslock and !! here*

I was following both (Hertha BSC and SV Wehen Wiesbaden) matches on livescore, and both had me on the verge of getting a cardiac arrest. Why is football so thrilling sometimes, especially when you're as much emotionally involved as I am? Well ... I guess that can't even be answered by us hardcore footie fans whose lives revolve around the sport. Hehe! It is just the way it is. ;)

While Hertha lost in overtime to Dortmund (well, I guess I have to live with that, at least, we didn't make asses out of ourselves like we did in previous Cup matches), SV Wehen Wiesbaden didn't. They won 1-0 thanks to Ronny's nice header - after Bakary Diakite's cross. Ronny only had to net that ball in. And he did. I am SO SO SO HAPPY for him right now!! If I grant someone THAT goal, then it's him. Finally, after more than 1,300 goalless minutes, he did it. :worship:

TWO COLOURS ONE LOVE (copyright: Nordwand SVWW)

This team so won me over, really. *sigh* Third round, here's SV WEHEN WIESBADEN! Ha!

The following conversation happened between me and my dad after the Hertha match:

me: "Well, at least Wehen got deeper than Hertha did."
Dad: "WHAT?!" *checking the results*
me *grinning from ear to ear*: "And now take a wild guess who scored?" :D
Dad: "No idea."
Me: "My Ronny did!"
Dad: "Okay, now I know why you are in such a good mood ..." (I am known to be slightly pissed off when Hertha BSC lost a match)

Ronny made my day today, that is for sure. I love this guy!

09-25-2008, 04:06 AM
Yay for Ronny:banana: That surely makes up for Hertha losing big style.
I had to laugh at the results in our League Cup last night, Ipswich our bitter rivals lost 4-1 at home to Wigan - yay:banana:

Then Manchester City, who are the new richest team in the Premier League, some say the World now(eh?):rolleyes: after a massive injection of cash provided by some mega rich people in UAE, well they lost 5-3 on penalties to League 1 side Brighton, away at the Withdean in Brighton. Richest team in the Premiership cant take penalties:rolls: The red half of Manchester, they'll be in ecstatic for months at that result:lol: Even I am sharing Man Uniteds joy, though I'm not a fan of either Manchester team.

09-25-2008, 04:38 PM
I am still so happy for Ronny. THAT goal was EXACTLY what he needed. And I hope he will find the confidence now to score a little more often now. I wanted to give him a big hug afterwards, that is for sure. I've seen some pics of him on the fence and celebrating with the fans - and he looks so happy and relieved on the pics. But can anyone blame him? Certainly not. Well done, Ronny!

Here's a video of fanclub The5Brothers who filmed a "choreography" the fans made before the match started. It is not that important what the guy babbles in the background, just pay attention to what the fans do, their clapping and chanting = wow. It's so freaking amazing!

The banner in the video says TWO COLOURS ONE LOVE, btw.

Here's the vid:

I now can't wait for the matches this weekend - we have a homematch vs Energie Cottbus (our rivals), while Wehen-Wiesbaden play at home vs freshly promoted RW Ahlen. Bring it on! I want six points! ;)

And finally ... :lol: at ManCity. There ya go - money doesn't automatically buy you titles!

09-28-2008, 05:08 PM
Football-wise, this weekend had it all for me.

First, we lost to last ranked Energie Cottbus. Why is it that we always are piss poor when we have to play vs them? Oh well. So they scored sometime during the first half and managed to keep that result till the final whistle was blown. Hertha 0, Cottbus 1. Feck. Glad I went out to watch The Dark Knight again, otherwise, I'd have been entirely pissed off in front of the radio.

Liverpool, however, won the Merseyside Derby vs Neverton 2-0, both goals scored by Fernando Torres. Yay! Haven't seen anything of the match, but I am very happy. :) Liverpool FC rocks!

Later on, there was the Barcelona-Derby, Espanyol vs Barça. While I am totally not that much into La Liga anymore, I still have a soft spot for Barça. What happens? Espanyol are up 1-0 and it takes some time until Barça strike back, even though Espanyol were shorthanded in that match since one of their players (Nene) got sent off. Barça win 2-1 there. :)

Today, there was SV Wehen Wiesbaden vs RW Ahlen. I was really optimistic after the Cup victory on Wednesday evening, but alas, it was not meant to be today. SVWW once again sucked completely, especially the defense. 16 minutes played and Ahlen are up 2-0 already. I fear another slaughtering! Second half ... 71' ... GOAL! SVWW. And take a wild guess who was the one to score? RIGHT. MY RONNY! Yay! But the tiny spark of hope didn't glow too long, as RW Ahlen scored again 72 mins into the match. :rolleyes: If SVWW continue playing like that, it's 3rd division next season. HEAVEN FORBID, of course, but ... they seriously need to get their shit together and start to play football again! Also, next up is FSV Mainz 05, a derby match which will be televised (yay), and Mainz are currently 2nd. Mainz won both matches last season in style (3-1 and 3-0). That's gonna be REALLY tough, and I am afraid my SVWW boys will be steamrolled out there ...

Finally, to top this slightly crappy weekend - my most hated F1 driver won in Singapore today. I am not much of an F1 fan anymore, but I want anyone to win BUT THAT DUDE!!! :mad::mad: I can't stand Alonso, and I don't care how great his race today supposedly was. I just don't want to see him anywhere NEAR the podium! Gah.
Okay. Rant over. :D

10-04-2008, 09:19 PM
Okay, I am pretty much talking to myself here, but WHAT.EVER.

Pic of our most recent victory:

We won in Leverkusen today, and that match was totally crazy. Leverkusen, being second of the table and thus the clear favourite on the sheet, had the game in control, they had more shots on target and more ball possession. However, they just couldn't score for whichever reason. What happened then was sheer brilliant, albeit lucky as well:

Our skipper Arne Friedrich gets the ball and passes it to Andriy Voronin. All Voronin had to do next is to outplay L'kusen's defense and slam it in - which he did (89'). Leverkusen 0, Hertha BSC 1. Yay. :worship: It was pretty much our first and only real chance and there we go and score that freaking goal. OMG. I totally freaked out in front of the radio and the computer. Ha! Ironically enough, Voronin scored against (one of his) ex-club(s). His last Bundesliga goal was in a Leverkusen - Hertha match some time ago (they said so on the radio). Talk about full circle here!

That was our third victory on foreign territory (we won 3 out of 4 away matches, that one loss happened in Munich in August), while we aren't all that great when being at home (two draws, one loss). But I LOVE my team, really!

Also, I ordered Steven Gerrard's autobiography and a DVD with the most insane football match EVER - the 2005 CL final. :)

10-11-2008, 08:56 AM
asdfghjkl ... I GOT IT!! I ordered it on Thursday afternoon and it was delivered today already. Thanks to the SVWW fanshop for being so fast - I'd gladly order some more stuff from them! :worship: What I am talking about? This thing of course - and it looks so freaking HOT! in real :hearts:

10-12-2008, 08:34 AM
Very nice top ;)

10-12-2008, 08:56 AM
I am still so totally giddy about it! :hearts: Now the guy just has to sign it, but I am sure I will find means and ways to get that done. ;) I'll definitely wear it next Sunday when I am in front of the comp again to follow their match vs FSV Frankfurt on livescoring. Yay. :) I usually don't buy shirts with names and numbers on them anymore, but in this case, I gladly made the exception. :D

10-12-2008, 05:06 PM
Kiwi, I am soooooo glad you got the shirt:hug::hug: Congrats on beating Leverkusen:banana:

Well Norwich just go from one disaster to another, losing at home to Derby last Saturday, no recognised defenders in our squad as things stand,they're injured/suspended:sad:

I went to an FA Cup qualifying game yesterday in my beloved Norfolk. An all Norfolk tie between little village team Wroxham and Kings Lynn(70 miles from Norwich). Kings Lynn won 2-0. One of our former players Alex Notman played for Wroxham. Ironically he has transferred from Kings Lynn to Wroxham. He had to quit football whilst he was playing for us a few seasons ago due to a series of knee,leg injuries:sad: I cried for most of the match with joy,I was just so glad to see him again.

And a good night for England winning 5-1. Spain won again, Germany beat Russia, thats a pretty good result. Its actually looking good for World Cup qualification, though there is still lots of time for things to change...

I will find some pics of the match, but I forgot my camera didn't I?:banghead: Some friends took some, but whether I'll get to see them:D

10-15-2008, 09:15 AM
Do you guys want to know the REAL reason why I love football? Well, it's the sexy hotness of the players, of course! This pic was taken by me, and it shows some SVWW players warming up before a match. Oh THEIR ASSES! *has butt-fetish* This is what happens if you give Aunt Kiwi a frontrow ticket and a camera with a lovely zoom! :devil: Also, Ronny is on the pic as well, he's the blonde guy on the left: (

Here you can see his very handsome face:

Another football hottie would have to be Clemens Fritz, he plays for Werder Bremen:

one more:

So completely adorable!!

Just kidding, of course. Yes, I do think that (some of) the lads are hot, but that is just the icing on the cake. I've loved football since my early childhood, so there. I just can't stand those fangirls who only swoon over a player like, "OMG He's so HOT!" but don't know anything about the sport itself. :rolleyes:

While there is international action going on this evening, I am already focussed on the weekend. We are playing at home vs VfB Stuttgart. Stuttgart were our favourite opponents last season, as we won both matches in style against them. Yay.

SVWW also have a homegame, another derby vs FSV Frankfurt. I really hope for one, no two things:
a) them not conceding again, their current goal stats is 5-18, 13 of those goals conceded in the last three (!) matches, whilst only one goal scored in those three games (Ronny vs Ahlen).
b) a victory. They need a victory SO BAD! They have collected three points so far, all three from draws. Ugh.

10-18-2008, 04:36 PM
Two things I learned today:

1) We still know how to win at home: Hertha BSC Berlin 2, VfB Stuttgart 1
2) We are also able to win without our "life-insurance" Marko Pantelic. Maximilian Nicu and Gojko Kacar scored for us. :worship:

Also, we're in the top third of the table - we're currently fourth! FOURTH!! This is so amazing! Bayern, fyi, are only 11th or something. :devil: I really believe that our coach Lucien Favre is achieving what he aims at. Give him and the team a couple more months and we'll rock the whole league even more. Awesome.

Hertha, I love you!

SV Wehen Wiesbaden tomorrow. They HAVE to win or it's getting even more ugly.

10-19-2008, 05:01 PM
Kiwi those lads are hot,thanks for posting the pics:hug: You must be thrilled with the way Hertha are going in the Bundesliga, lets hope it continues:rocker2:

10-19-2008, 08:49 PM
See, we have hot guys here in Germany as well. Not just the Spanish NT ... ;)

I also hope that we can keep up with our good work there in Berlin. It's been a while since I had so much fun supporting Hertha BSC. :)

Aaaaaaaaaaanyway. I freaked out totally today. The reason: my beloved SV Wehen Wiesbaden boys won their match vs FSV Frankfurt 3-1 today. Admittedly, it was more luck than anything else, but it doesn't matter. The three valuable points they have gained are more important than that. :) I was especially thrilled when Ronny scored again. Really nice one, boy! :worship: Dad kept teasing me everytime Ronny was to be seen on the screen during the summary of the match: "Ohhh, THERE he is!!". I just did this: :rolleyes:. However, when Ronny was briefly interviewed on telly, I couldn't stop awwwing. The guy is drop dead gorgeous. :hearts: :inlove: I hope they'll keep that up now, because the next match will be a toughie again, it's vs FC St Pauli on Friday evening. Bring it on!

10-22-2008, 06:36 PM
Norwich did the unthinkable last night. They actually won!!! Norwich City 5 Wolves 2:worship: Wolves were the league leaders in The Championship.

The Wolves keeper comically carried the ball into his own net to start the fun:D Then came a hat-trick by Leroy Lita our on-loan 5 ft 7 striker, then Lee Croft made it 5-2. They scored a penalty minutes before Lita got his hat-trick.

Enjoy the picture gallery:D;)

Come on Liverpool:rocker2:

10-24-2008, 01:16 PM
Congratulations on that spectacular victory, Di! :hug: A hat-trick? Yay, I love when that happens!

Yesterday evening, I was watching our match vs Benfica. We had the match in control most of the time, but two things sucked: the final pass and that we simply couldn't score to save our lives. So at the beginning of the second half, Benfica score out of nowhere. WHAT?! I was so pissed off in that moment, you have no idea! However, we'd be nowhere if we didn't have Marko Pantelic (he was benched for the bigger part of the game, but then Favre sent him on the pitch), and he scored a real cracker of a goal. Absolutely amazing stuff there, Pante! He may be a diva, but we do need him, I think. Voronin would have almost scored as well, but he missed the goal by an inch or something. I yelled GOAL! already but had to realize that the ball didn't go in. :sobbing: Bottom line, we could (maybe even should, seeing that we had more chances) have won this, but our inability to score only led to a 1-1 draw. Oh well.

On Sunday, we'll be in Dortmund and want revenge for the DFB Pokal loss some weeks ago. ;)

SVWW are playing vs St Pauli tonight, and I can't wait. Also, as it looks, I will be going to their match vs 1. FC Kaiserslautern (a huge name here in Germany, lots of tradition and such) on November 7. I'll be freezing my butt off as it is on a Friday evening, but yes, I am that hardcore, and I can still get a front row ticket. :devil: Will order the ticket soon. :)

Yay, live football!

10-24-2008, 05:20 PM
:awww:thats hard luck Kiwi:hug: Thanks for the congrats for Norwich:hug:

Norwich have been much the same all season, all the possession, but no goals....until Tuesday night:banana: I'm going to watch our game at home to Doncaster tomorrow. I hope we will progress from the great performance on Tuesday night,I wish I had actually been at the game:sad: But,I couldn't go because of work, and then I caught a bad cold, which is only now clearing up.

Of course what happens to our hat-trick hero, he's the subject of enquiries from Premiership clubs like West Bromwich Albion. He's on-loan from fellow Championship club Reading, and only has 2 weeks with us, unless we can extend his loan somehow before some Premiership club gets him, we just have to keep him:rocker2:

Enjoy SV Wehen Wiesbaden - all the best to your boy Ronny, good luck to Hertha against Dortmund:rocker2:

Oh for f***'s sake!!! How piss poor and pathetic can you be? Yikes. Yes, I am talking about SV Wehen Wiesbaden here. They sucked so much in today's match vs FC St Pauli ... absolutely NO will, NO fighting spirit, NO attacking football. :rolleyes: It hurts to see them play like that. They only had what, one or two good shots on target, one of them of course was Ronny's attempt 83 (!!!) minutes into the game, when the show was over already, and St Pauli were up 2-0 (both goals scored within less than five minutes ... :help: ), but the ball only hit the crossbar. :sobbing: I just hope they'll win vs FC Ingolstadt on Tuesday evening ... although I have absolutely NO idea how they'll be able to. :sad:

And you know what? I just bought a ticket to their homematch vs 1. FC Kaiserslautern on November 7 ... I think I'll be witnessing a hammering, because K'lautern are up there among the top teams. Ugh. I must be masochistic, somehow?

10-25-2008, 07:04 AM
:awww: It makes football lovers want to tear their hair out when a performance is so poor. I always ask afterwards 'Well then what did they do on the training pitch?' 'Did they even train?' I sigh and think 'Come on, it takes 2 sides to make a game of football':rolleyes:

10-25-2008, 12:42 PM
:awww: It makes football lovers want to tear their hair out when a performance is so poor. I always ask afterwards 'Well then what did they do on the training pitch?' 'Did they even train?'

Exactly. This is exactly what I am going through again and again - pulling hair and thinking what they might have done during practice. Because right now, it really hurts to watch (and care) about SV Wehen Wiesbaden. I actually feel sorry for two players out there. Goalkeeper Alex Walke (without him, they would've even conceded more goals; but what can you do as a goalie if your defense is non existant?) and of course my boy Ronny König, because he is usually all by himself out there. The midfield pretty much doesn't exist, either, and what are you supposed to do as a striker if you don't get passes you can make use of because each and every opponent knows that it is the same thing again and again: long passes to Ronny which don't reach him too often because their opponents "steal" the ball. But for some unknown reason, coach Christian Hock (short: C.H.) sticks to his tactics and doesn't change the system the slightest bit. The result? Last ranked, the fewest goals scored, the most conceded (RW Oberhausen have the same stats: 8 scored, 21 conceded, they'll be playing tomorrow). I know there is also Sabidal Orahovac, the team's top scorer (having scored four goals so far, in nine games), but as I said - it's mostly Ronny whom they try to get the ball to. The team play a little better when Dennis Schmidt comes on the pitch, so if I were C.H., I'd bring him and Ronny from the beginning, and Orahovac "behind" them. But I think that is WAY too much of an attacking team, because the tactic in St Pauli was to defend, defend a little more, and defend. Well, we all saw where that lead to. :p :rolleyes:

Having said that, what pisses me off to no end as well is that they keep conceding goals after free kicks and corners like there's no tomorrow. What the hell are they doing in their trainings?? :rolleyes: :mad: Standards, btw, were SVWW's weapon last season, and they're now used against them. Oh well. I hope there'll be changes soon and they start to play FOOTBALL soon, because THIS is really depressing. :rolleyes:

10-26-2008, 03:55 PM
LIVERPOOL FC, I freaking LOVE you guys! Xabi Alonso, you are my hero! :worship:


And now, is it too much to ask for a Hertha victory in Dortmund today? ;)

10-26-2008, 04:02 PM
I usually don't follow soccer but my other local team (FC Inter) won the Finnish championship a few moments ago.

:rocker: :banana: :yippee: :woohoo: :yeah: :bigclap: :worship:


10-26-2008, 05:57 PM
Congratulations on winning the championship, then!

Well. Once again, we gained a point in a match which we should have lost. Dortmund were the better team, they had more ball possession and whatnot, but still we managed to draw them in their homebase. We got a penalty in the first half, and all I could think was "Please don't let Marko Pantelic do it!" (Pante is known for failing at penalties; last time, he missed the goal by several inches :rolleyes: ). So new guy Cicero takes the penalty and ka-boom, we're up 1-0. Yay. But in the second half, Dortmund continued playing the way they were playing before halftime, and that way, their equalizer was justified. We can consider ourselves lucky that we didn't lose out there. I was close to a cardiac arrest while following the match on livescoring ...

Being a -devoted- football fan is definitely not good for one's health. :lol:

10-26-2008, 06:40 PM
A bonus point for Hertha then, Kiwi:banana: And yes being a devoted football fan definitely doesn't promote good health and well being:lol:

Liverpool:banana: They snapped Chelseas 86(yes EIGHTY-SIX):speakles: unbeaten run of games at The Bridge. Awesome:worship:

Leroy Lita,our on-loan striker from Reading says he wants a further loan spell with Norwich:banana: So, lets hope that can be arranged(crosses every part of the body that can be crossed):lol: The fans love him, the players really like him, so hands off Premiership clubs,he wants to be with us!!:ras:

10-29-2008, 04:47 PM The 0-0 draw vs FC Ingolstadt doesn't help SV Wehen Wiesbaden a lot. The only good news is that they didn't concede, however, they should have won this match. Ronny missed the goal twice, so did several other players. Oh, and coach CH decided to play with two strikers yesterday, he had Dennis Schmidt and Ronny König up front. Apparently, that seemed to work a little better, as SVWW indeed were better yesterday, although they couldn't finish. Hm. The team are going to Fürth tomorrow to take on SpVgg Greuther Fürth on Friday evening. That's gonna be a real toughie, since Fürth is one of the top teams. :help:

Also, I got my ticket for the SV Wehen Wiesbaden vs 1. FC Kaiserslautern match next Friday. Yay, front row! :devil: I will probably also go to their last home game of the year vs FC Augsburg. :)

My Hertha Boys are playing at home vs Hannover 96 tonight. And there's a lot of trouble inside the team. There is a huge power struggle between our life insurance Marko Pantelic and coach Lucien Favre. Today, Pante stated in an interview that he feels f***ed over by the team, that they aren't honest with him. While he has the support from the fans, it's not the case from manager Dieter Hoeneß and Lucien Favre. :rolleyes: He is such a diva, but sadly, we depend a lot on him. *sigh* Oh well.

10-29-2008, 09:03 PM
asdfghjkl ... 3-0!!! WE WON!!! YAY!!! We kicked Hannover 96's asses back to Hanover. Yay. Gosh, do I love my team right now! Marko Pantelic, Andriy Voronin and Valeri Domovchiyski scored for us. Wheeeee! :worship: I told you we'd rock the league this season. ;)

I am still totally giddy about my ticket for the SV Wehen Wiesbaden vs 1. FC Kaiserslautern match on Friday ...

Front row. And the SVWW boys warming up directly in front of my nose. :hearts:

(edited because by now you guys have seen the ticket ...)

11-02-2008, 02:29 AM
Wow, very lucky for a front row ticket! ;)
Nice work; Enjoy yourself :D

11-02-2008, 09:18 AM
It is usualy not that difficult to get a front row ticket there. ;) My dad said I just wanted to have a front row ticket because I wanted to have a better view on the players' asses. :rolls: Depending on how I feel (and I feel like it quite a lot, to be honest) I will also order a ticket for the match vs FC Augsburg in early December. :devil:

Anyway. Hertha and Liverpool - shame on you! :mad: Man, I was pissed off yesterday, that is for sure. *shakes fist* At least Barcelona didn't let me down. :rocker:

11-02-2008, 02:41 PM
Yeah Kiwi I was pretty fed up with all my teams yesterday. Even Valencia lost:banghead:

I saw the Barca game, the conditions were dire, so wet and the pitch was very muddy. Very impressive play from Barca, Thierry Henry, the guy is a genius:worship:

I just watched the East Midlands derby Derby County vs Nottingham Forest, they are in the same league as Norwich. The best incidents came with minutes to go. Derby were shooting in, they had a penalty it was saved, minutes later they scored and the referee disallowed it for no good reason at all, perfectly clean header, there was no-one offside, or fouling anyone:shrug: But actually I am happy with a draw because it means neither team get much closer to Norwich in the league table;)

Deanna,do you like cricket? I hope you do,Australian cricket is awesome:worship: Michael Clarke,Brett Lee,Ricky Ponting:rocker: I am desperate to talk to someone about cricket. Or maybe I should see if there is a Cricket Thread out there. Does anyone know if there is one? (Plea for help:D) Thanks:hug:

11-05-2008, 04:15 PM
*passes out*

I hear that Wehen-Wiesbaden's lovely little stadium - BRITA Arena - very likely will be sold out vs Kaiserslautern on Friday evening. Oh wow. That's gonna be fab, then. :) I am so excited about it already! :bounce:

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand - I will be going to their last home game of the year vs FC Augsburg. I asked my friend (with whom I am usually going) whether she felt like coming along, and she said yes. So I ordered front row tickets for us yesterday. Wheee. Don't tell me I am :cuckoo: ... that's nothing new. Besides, I feel really low at the moment, so indulging myself in football is a very welcome cure to heal the pain for a moment.

Di, I don't know if you've seen it, but there's a cricket thread in the non-tennis section here on MTF. ;)

11-05-2008, 06:25 PM
Great that you're going Wehen Wiesbaden's last game of the year too Kiwi;) Sorry you're feeling low:awww::hug:,lets hope the football lifts your spirits;)

I got some rare good news about Norwich. Leroy Lita our striker who has been on loan to us from Reading, is going to stay with us for another month on loan, up to and including the home game against our arch local rivals Ipswich on Sunday 7th December:woohoo: Trouble is the rest of the team are just ****:o. He likes the players, they like him but he has to make things happen by himself, because they don't give him any service:awww:

Our predicament is even getting to our longest serving player Adam Drury, usually a quiet,unassuming guy. He has urged the players to start playing as a unit. I can only hope and pray....

11-06-2008, 03:40 PM
Kiwi btw I found the Cricket Thread,thanks for the tip;):hug::kiss:

Not long to go now before the big game tomorrow night for you;) In case I don't get in here before tomorrow evening, hope Wehen Wiesbaden strut their stuff for you:rocker: Enjoy the game Kiwi:hug:

11-06-2008, 08:33 PM
Oh great, we drew Metalist Kharkov 0-0. :rolleyes: If we're barely scraping through in this whole group stage, I'll be furious as all hell. I know that we can play football, but sometimes, we're minimalists out there. Oh well. At least we didn't lose. But the goalless draw doesn't help us that much, either. :rolleyes:

Di, thank you so much for your kind words regarding my effed up situation and tomorrow's game. I am so excited about it, it is almost unhealthy. :rolls: I hope that during the time in the stadium I will be really able to forget all the crap I am going through right now and leave my worries behind. *sigh* And since I'll be sitting where the SVWW boys are warming up and close to the pitch I am sure I will have some fun. ;) No pics, though, because I am not allowed to take my professional cam in there without a special "license", and my mom's little cam is broken, so is my old one. Oh well. I hope for a nice Wehen-Wiesbaden victory tomorrow evening. I can feel it, the boys are going to rock tomorrow and cause a bit of an upset. ;) (K'lautern are currently second, but lost surprisingly to two lower ranked teams while playing away from their notorious Betzenberg, and why shouldn't the underdog have a chance?)

More when I am back home, which will be in approximately 24hrs ... Wheeeee!

Also - our tickets for the Augsburg match arrived today. They are SO FAST at that ticket thingy! :eek: Lovely.

11-07-2008, 09:39 PM
Thank you, SV WEHEN WIESBADEN, for being entirely awesome today and defeating 1. FC Kaiserslautern 4-2. The best thing about it - my boy had Ronny König Show and scored two goals ... yay. I am still so happy! I sensed he'd score today, and what does he do? He scores TWO lovely goals. :worship:

But it all got topped with what happened after the game ... I kept waiting a little while to celebrate with the team, and afterwards, Ronny came to the fans and handed one of them his shirt. *jealous* Then he high-fived a couple of them and made his way to where I was sitting. Well, okay, I was standing in that moment already, so when he was right there, I decided NOW or NEVER: "WELL DONE RONNY!"


asdfghjkl ... I tell you - I still haven't entirely realized it ... it was so amazing! It was just one short moment, but it surely made me feel over the top. And he looks so freaking gorgeous in the flesh, really. *sigh* :hearts:

I had a real blast there, the match was totally insane as five goals were scored within ten minutes or something, and I am so totally glad that I went. :) Gotta LOVE SV Wehen Wiesbaden. *nods*

11-08-2008, 09:18 PM
I still owe you the match-report, so here it is ... and believe me when I say it was the definition of insanity and awesomeness:

The match had a 6pm start, and during the first half, I got roughly 50 cardiac arrests because Kaiserslautern (whom I've wanted to see live once for quite some time) were in front of the goal every so often and really dangerous. FCK were in control most of the time with their pressing and all. However, they just couldn't finish to save their lives - either would Alex Walke save or they just didn't score otherwise. *wipes sweat* 41 minutes into the game, SVWW had their best chance during the first half (Benjamin Siegert and Madi Panandetiguiri also had some, but ... ya know?) ... as I told you yesterday evening already, my boy had Ronny König Show and it was him, of course. But unfortunately he missed the target, because Lautern's keeper Robles had a point blank save. Wow. I know in the meantime that Ronny was really pissed off at himself for that - he said he chose the wrong technique to score, so he missed it. He also said that the guys cheered him up in the locker room and told him "You'll get your chance in the second half!" Little did they know what would happen ...

The second half started off with K'lautern being again aggressive, but my boys now knew how to play them and didn't allow them too many chances anymore (aside from a really dangerous freekick, which was amazingly saved by Walke). And then the show started ...

66': Sascha Amstätter passes the ball to Ronny, FCK defender Amedick tries to get the ball out of the danger zone, but doesn't succeed. Instead, the ball is now right in front of Ronny's boot. All he has to do is to slam it in. YAY!! SV Wehen Wiesbaden 1, Kaiserslautern 0.

So we all - as long as we were supporting SVWW - got up and cheered like mad. I had just sat down again, when THIS happened:

68': Sanibal Orahovac (he came on the pitch after the break, he subbed Dennis Schmidt) scores another goal (and Ronny is somehow involved in this one as well ... asdfghjkl ...). SV Wehen Wiesbaden 2, Kaiserslautern 0.


From now on, the guys were on fire:

71': Benjamin Siegert's totally amazing cross makes its way to Erwin Koen who scores a cracker of a goal. Volley. Hallelujah!
My thoughts in that moment: "WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON HERE?! F*CK YES!!" Because mind you, K'lautern are second of the table, while Wehen Wiesbaden have the weakest offense of the entire league.
SV Wehen Wiesbaden 3, Kaiserslautern 0.

73': Kaiserslautern are dangerous again in front of the goal, and Srdjan Lakic (an ex-Hertha player) scores their first goal. In my opinion, it was a bit doubtful, since Alex Walke was pushed in that moment, but the ref allowed the goal nonetheless. Crap.


76': RONNNNNNNNNNNNYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY!!!! There he is and scores another goal, his second of the evening and his fourth of the season. Again, Sascha Amstätter has the assist for that one. Holy crap!!! SV Wehen Wiesbaden 4, Kaiserslautern 1.

I was so totally happy for him ... he deserved these two goals so much!! And you know what? I knew all the time he'd score yesterday, and there he goes and scores two. Yay. (I sent my friend an SMS in that moment: "I love this guy! Two goals, and I am watching this live. *faints*")

And yes, you counted that right - FIVE goals within TEN minutes! Now if THAT's not insane and awesome, I don't know what is.

The fans were now singing "Einer geht noch, einer geht noch rein!" (a very popular chant when a team keeps scoring a lot of goals, and SVWW were on a roll last night!) and "Lautern wir hören nichts!" (yelled at the opponent's fans when they are totally quiet because their team is down or something). It was absolutely amazing! A real party.

Ronny was subbed by Sandro Schwarz (83'), and the fans chanted "Ronny König Fußball-Gott!" and applauded him a lot. Awwwww ... He also said in an interview that it felt special to him to have scored against his ex-club (he was playing for K'lautern's second team before signing for Wehen-Wiesbaden).
*fangirl mode on* I can't help it, but I totally dig his voice as well ... *fangirl mode off*

Kaiserslautern scored one more 89 minutes into the game (Lakic again), and Sanibal Orahovac had a chance to extend the lead to 5-2 shortly before the final whistle was blown, but what the heck, the boys were freaking amazing last night, and I am so, so proud of them!!!

After the match, the team celebrated together with the fans, they did the so-called "Humba", and the boys were jumping around on the pitch like crazy. And you all know what happened after the "Humba" ... *sigh* Namely ... high-fiving my boy. asdfghjkl ...

I left the stadium a bit after 8pm, and walked back to the railway station, in a state of total happiness. Because let's face it - how often do you get to see matches like that?


I don't even care that much about the fact that my throat was totally sore yesterday from screaming and celebrating so much. And yes, I also caught a bit of a cold, but whatever. What happened yesterday was so totally worth it. And I also have another SVWW scarf now; one side is black and has "WIR SIND EIN TEAM" (We are a team) on it, the other side is red and has SV WEHEN WIESBADEN on it. Yay.

11-09-2008, 03:16 PM
Kiwi, I am very happy you had such a great time :hug:

I really would like to contribute more to this thread, but I am not that much into football (except European or World Championships), so my posts would only sound very strange... ;)

11-09-2008, 05:07 PM
Kiwi:banana: Unglaublich:rocker: Ronny smiled at you and high fived you,awesome Kiwi:hug::hug: I am so pleased for you:woohoo: What an amazing game too:bowdown:

Its so nice when players take time out for their fans especially someone as devoted to their team,a particular player as you are Kiwi;):hug:

Birte,nice to see you in here;):hug: You contributed just by coming in here;):hug: And if ever you have thoughts no matter how strange you think they might be on football,any other sport,we'd love you to share them with us:hug:

11-09-2008, 05:30 PM
Birte, nice to see you in here, too. Well, you don't have to necessarily talk about football, this thread is open for all kinds of sports outside tennis. So just feel free to babble about any kind of sport you might fancy. :)

Di, I was in heaven on Friday evening. And after all I've been through the days and weeks before, it felt so damn good to witness this. It was a fantastic experience, especially when I got to high-five Ronny. It was perfect, an insane football match, amazing atmosphere, totally happy SVWW players and all ... can't wait for December 7 now, because that's when I will be seeing the lads again and hopefully they'll win again. Friday's match proved that the team still has the potential to win, and if they can keep that up, they'll be out of the relegation zone soon. :)

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand ... asdfghjkl ... HERTHA!! Wow, we defeated the best team of the league, TSG Hoffenheim, 1-0 this evening! Apparently, our defense was amazing, since we didn't allow the best offense of the league to score against us! Yay. Now that's what I call a clean sweep, since the four teams I care about the most all four won, and some of them even in a very nice manner. :worship:

11-09-2008, 08:31 PM
Kiwi,Hertha beating Hoffenheim,never in doubt;):hug: I can see it will be a long time before you come down to earth,I don't blame you:hug: All four of your teams winning too,wunderbar:rocker: You deserve to savour it, what is it they say in German? 'Prost!':D

11-12-2008, 03:26 PM
Okay, my boy Ronny was on TV on Monday evening. Since I wasn't at home, I set my VCR, but something screwed up and my VCR didn't record ANYTHING. Okay, nevermind, there's a re-run. WHICH MY VCR DIDN'T RECORD, EITHER!! :mad: However, hr (a regional TV channel) put the interview online, and I watched the interview there. HOLY CRAP!! :hearts:

The guy is so, so gorgeous! I was just a bit sad that his interview didn't last longer and that Kickers Offenbach's (another regional footie team) keeper was being interviewed in between. Argh. Oh well. My friend told me she got the interview and also the match from Friday evening. Yay. :worship:

Also, football magazine kicker was full of Ronny praise on Monday. So of course I had to lay my greedy paws on that issue. Well well. And NO, I am NOT obsessed, what makes you think that?! :rolls:

This Friday, SVWW have another away game, at Osnabrück. I am all in for another glorious victory! And Hertha are up vs Hamburger SV, that should be an interesting one, too.

11-13-2008, 03:50 PM
Kiwi that pic of your boy Ronny is hot,thanks for posting him out of his football kit,he scrubs up rather well:yeah:

What is it with VCRs?:mad: I'm glad your friend rescued the interview,match for you:banana: I'm going to google Ronny I think;) Just to see what I can find out:)

Good luck to your teams this weekend Kiwi:hug:

I'll catch up with all the European results later this weekend, cos I'm going to Norwich tomorrow for a few days. We have a very vital game vs Swansea:help: Trouble is Swansea are a very good side, and they have the best looking manager in English football in Spaniard Roberto Martinez:hearts: He speaks fantastic English with a Welsh lilt, his Spanish accent is fading very fast:lol:

11-13-2008, 05:09 PM
See, I told you he's drop dead gorgeous, and trust me when I say that I almost keeled over when I high-fived him, because he looks even better in the flesh ... ;) His charisma is absolutely amazing!!

Okay, here's some basic info about him:

D.O.B.: June 2nd, 1983
Place of Birth: Lichtenstein (near Chemnitz, Saxonia)
former clubs: SSV St Egidien, Chemnitzer FC, 1. FC Kaiserslautern II
plays for SV Wehen Wiesbaden since: 2006
contract until: 2010
position: forward
shirt number: 13 (used to be 29 when they were still in 3rd division)
height: 1.90m
weight: 93kgs
favourite stadium: Camp Nou, Barcelona
players that should appear on his dream-team: Kaká, Ronaldinho, Messi, Henry, Gerrard and Ballack
favourite movies: Pirates of the Caribbean I-III
favourite food: spaghetti with scampis
something that is never missing in his fridge: cola :D

other tidbits:
- apparently left-footed (there was a little game at the show he was on on Monday evening and the guests had to shoot on target, he said "I'm left-footed" ...)
- scored a hat-trick within seven minutes (I am getting that match, too)
- his neighbour is Marko Kopilas (vice-captain), they sometimes play video games together
- he kisses his boots before a match :rolls: (said so in an interview which was on SVWW's homepage; dunno if he's still doing that, but it cracked me up)
- almost left the theatre while watching "Spiderman 3" (tbh, the first one sucked already)
- has a fanclub somewhere (my guess is in his hometown), I haven't found out anything about them, yet, I just know that he is still in touch with them and that they sometimes come to watch him play if they can make it
- answer to the question what he'd do for a million Euros: "I'd cut the grass of the pitch in our BRITA Arena with scissors. And if I had the million then, I'd support my hometown club, SSV St Egidien, with the money."

... anything else you want to know? ;)

Other than that ... WTF, LIVERPOOL?! :rolleyes:

11-16-2008, 04:35 PM
Kiwi, vielen dank:hug::hug: Thats so much info:yeah::banana:

Norwich lost again:rolleyes: We were winning 1-0 through Italian striker Artur Lupoli (through good passing), and then we threw away the game when Swansea levelled the scores just before halftime 1-1, 2 minutes of madness at the start of 2nd half we're losing 3-1. A freak own goal gave us some home with 20 minutes to go, but my God the defence is:o:o:o:o!!!!!!!!! Final score Norwich 2 Swansea 3. They won because they passed the ball, and defended tighter, we tried to pump the ball in the air,to the smallest forward of ours(Leroy Lita) their players were bigger than ours, why oh why, lads don't you keep the ball on the floor for the whole game??!!!!!! We do have players that can run at defenders and terrorise the opposition a little bit, but we're too:scared:!!!

Hertha won again I see:banana: Happy that Liverpool are still doing really well in the Premier League, Stevie G:worship:

11-16-2008, 08:11 PM
You're very welcome, Di. :hug: All the info I posted was from his player's profile on SVWW's website, various articles and interviews I came across. :)
BTW, I now have him in 70cm x 50cm on my wardrobe, so I can see him whenever I go to sleep. ;) And my friend and I will probably go and stalk him and the rest of the team during a training session not too far into the future. Yay. I hope to get my pic taken with him then, but I usually succeed in such missions. ;)

Hertha ... well, they had me close to another heart attack when HSV went up 1-0 in our homebase, but four minutes of awesome were enough to send them packing. *wipes sweat* Still high-flying (currently, we're fourth), still strong, still awesome. I really hope we can keep that up and won't collapse again ... like we usually do at some point. :rolleyes:

Liverpool :worship: Now all I need for is to Chel$ki to make way up there and I am satisfied. I want the title back where it belongs - at Anfield. :)

11-17-2008, 07:14 PM
I just knew you'd use that pic of Ronny as your avatar Kiwi;)

I think Hertha will stay strong;)

I would give anything for Norwich to be 4th from top, as it is we're 19th, theres 24 teams in our Division:o

11-17-2008, 08:31 PM

Errrr, am I really THAT predictable? :rolls: Nah, seriously, that screencap was too hot not to make use of it. ;)

BTW, I forgot some dates:

I mentioned the teams he was playing for before joining Wehen; here they are together with the years when he was playing for them:
- SSV St Egidien (???-2000)
- Chemnitzer FC (2000-2004)
- 1. FC Kaiserslautern II (2004-2006)

And you know what? I found some pics of him in his SVWT kit from his very first season there (match as well as his mug shot from the team back then). Yay.

Usually, we collapse at one point of the season and fall into a slump. But for some reason, I don't really see that happening this season. :)

Best of luck to Norwich! :)

11-21-2008, 02:45 PM
Yay, GO ME! I found two (small) team photos of Chemnitzer FC from the 2003/2004 season. Hi Ronny! I am such a stalker, really. :rolls:

Speaking of Ronny:

Dear Eintracht Frankfurt,


No love,

Rumour has it once again that Eintracht Frankfurt want him, probably already after the winter break. I don't approve of it one single bit. I hate that club, and I don't want my boy playing for them. :mad: The teams' bosses both denied it, coach Christian Hock said his contact to Ronny was that close that he'd knew if there was any truth to it. The only vague comments came from Ronny's manager. *stomps*

Worst case scenario: Ronny gets booked for the fifth time vs 1860 Munich next week and won't be playing in the match vs Augsburg (so I won't get to see him) and then signs a contract at Eintracht Frankfurt in the next transfer period. Ugh.

Kiwi I want to rep you for the lovely info you found for me about Ronny. It won't let me:mad: As soon as I can rep you I will;) I hope you're feeling better:hug:

Well Norwich won:bounce: Fantastic:banana: Away from home with 10 men on the pitch after 20 minutes of the game, our centre-half 'The Doc' got sent off for a foul deemed serious enough for a straight red card:rolleyes:

Three minutes later we scored, a nice cross from our midfielder David Bell driven in by Matty Pattison, his 1st goal for Norwich:woohoo: Of course then we let them draw level before half-time:rolleyes:

Midway through the 2nd half we got the winner, courtesy of an own goal:lol: I mean our striker Leroy Lita was simply standing alongside a couple of Forest players:lol: The last player to touch the ball was ironically born in Norwich, Chris Cohen. He only lived there for 1st six months of his life:lol:


11-23-2008, 12:23 PM
Again - you're very welcome about the Ronny fact-sheet. I enjoyed doing this. :)

I feel a bit better, the antibiotics kicked in, and I don't have those horrible coughing fits anymore. However, as I told you, I was close to a nervous breakdown while following our match in Bochum yesterday. Dear Lord, that was close! Almost blowing a 3-0 lead? Shame on you, Hertha! But we pulled off the victory. Yay. So we're still fourth, one point short of Bayern. :D It's so amazing, no one expected us, "one of the most bland teams in Germany", to be up there, and what do we do? We're on a roll and join the top teams. :worship:

I am following Wehen Wiesbaden's match on livescore right now, and it seems to be a good one. Ronny would've almost scored, but missed the target. Geez! Come on SV WEHEN, win this thing!!

Oh and NICE WORK Norwich! Yay! You must be so happy!! :hug:

11-23-2008, 07:20 PM
I am soooooo happy:D:banana: No-one can wipe the smile off my face today:)

SV Wehen 0-0 I see:) Sounded like an entertaining game for 0-0 draw;) Another point to the total, shame it wasn't three:awww:

11-24-2008, 02:41 PM
SV Wehen Wiesbaden pissed me off yesterday. They should totally have won this one, since Oberhausen were short-handed for the bigger part of the second half, and their goalkeeper had to be subbed as well. But nooooooo ... :rolleyes: Also, Ronnny and Baka missed great chances to put SVWW 2-0 ahead. *sigh*

BTW ... you know what? My boy is made of so much awesome! The other day, I had sent him a letter and told him how much the match vs Kaiserslautern and high-fiving him meant to me and cheered me up. I had also asked for his autograph, and lookie what I got today (including a personal dedication):

11-28-2008, 03:50 PM
Hertha vs Cologne tonight. Let's see if we can ruin Daum's 400th match as Bundesliga coach party? :devil: A victory would put us, "one of the most bland teams in Germany", among the Top 3. Only for a night, probably, since Bayern and Leverkusen battle it out tomorrow, but ... it'd be so freaking awesome! Come on, guys, make it real!



HOLY.SHIT. This is the table of today:

1. (1.) 1899 Hoffenheim 14 10 1 3 37:20 +17 31
2. (4.) Hertha BSC Berlin 15 9 3 3 23:19 +4 30 --> WHAT?! :eek:
3. (2.) Bayer Leverkusen 14 9 1 4 32:17 +15 28
4. (3.) FC Bayern München 14 8 4 2 33:21 +12 28
5. (5.) Hamburger SV 14 8 2 4 22:22 0 26
6. (6.) Borussia Dortmund 14 6 6 2 25:18 +7 24
7. (7.) FC Schalke 04 14 6 5 3 22:13 +9 23
8. (8.) VfL Wolfsburg 14 6 4 4 32:22 +10 22
9. (9.) SV Werder Bremen 14 5 5 4 32:26 +6 20
10. (10.) 1. FC Köln 15 6 1 8 16:22 -6 19
11. (11.) VfB Stuttgart 14 5 3 6 19:21 -2 18
12. (12.) Eintracht Frankfurt 14 4 4 6 19:23 -4 16
13. (13.) Hannover 96 14 3 4 7 15:27 -12 13
14. (14.) Arminia Bielefeld 14 2 6 6 14:23 -9 12
15. (15.) Borussia M'gladbach 14 3 2 9 15:27 -12 11
16. (16.) VfL Bochum 14 1 7 6 17:23 -6 10
17. (17.) Karlsruher SC 14 3 1 10 12:25 -13 10
18. (18.) FC Energie Cottbus 14 2 3 9 8:24 -16 9

I'll laugh my ass off if the Bayern-Leverkusen clash ends in a draw tomorrow. :rolls:

12-10-2008, 08:24 PM
Well. We lost two games in a row, first the one vs Galatasaray (totally disappointing from us!) and then the league match vs Schalke 04 (for f***'s sake!). Last match of the year is vs our friends from Karlsruhe on Saturday.

Wehen Wiesbaden ... well, can I just say CRAP? What a piss poor performance vs Augsburg. Madi got sent off (yay ... not), Captain Sandro Schwarz will be sidelined on Sunday as well as he collected his fifth yellow, and well ... overall, the match was rather boring in the first half.

I have officially decided that I am totally :cuckoo: because I have this test in Wiesbaden next week, and the place where I have to take that test is close to the stadium and to their "office". :devil: So I'll make my way to the stadium when the test is done with and take some pics of the outside. I doubt I can get in, but you never know. And also, I'd like to pay their "office" a visit, because I think I want to go to their first home game of 2009 vs Alemannia Aachen. :devil: I just want to ask when the tickets go on sale. :p I told my mom already that I needed her little camera that day, "because you never know what's going to happen in Wiesbaden that day!" :devil: (I don't think I'll bump into players while lurking around there, but ... ya know?) And I still have to talk to Steffi to make a Stalking Appointment. :devil:

12-22-2008, 09:17 PM

I hear Voronin who is on loan to you from Liverpool is very interested in staying with Hertha beyond the season long loan;) What do you think??? Have you heard the same thing your end?

Norwich managed a win over the weekend,we beat Charlton 1-0(Leroy scored again:banana:) There is talk that he may be allowed to leave Reading for as little as £300,000!!(hopes and prays):) We must sign him in January:rocker:

01-04-2009, 10:42 AM
Any of you guys that might read this,I'm not going:mad::crazy:talking to myself. I want to keep this thread going for my football:crazy:dear friend Kiwi;)

Kiwi,if you're reading this,hope you're starting to feel better about things sweetie;):hug:

Well Norwich are still in the FA Cup:banana: We have only managed to get through the 3rd round twice in our last 11 attempts:o We drew 1-1 at Charlton(in London) yesterday. The manager played a rare master stroke,putting on our Italian loan striker Lupoli in the 2nd half, and he scored within 7 minutes of being on the pitch:woohoo: A nice passing move finished with a left footed strike:dance:

Liverpool are still in the Cup, winning comfortably 2-0 away at Preston. A great strike from Riera, and Torres:worship: came on as sub and made it 2-0. The draw for 4th round is later on today:scared:

Oh and this should make you smile. Man City 0 Nottingham Forest 3:lol:

In La Liga, Barca won 3-1, goals from Henry, Iniesta and Toure Yaya:rocker: Valencia also won 3-1 against Atletico, a penalty from Villa, and 2 from David Silva(one shot was from 30 yards:worship:)

01-28-2009, 08:14 PM
YAY FOOTBALL IS BACK!!!! Finally, it was about time. I was a bit on withdrawal here. The good news is that I'll be attending TWO SVWW matches within one month - one this Sunday, the other one on Feburary 27. Yay. :D And I have front row tickets. *muahahaha* :devil:

I have SVWW's DFB Pokal match vs Karlsruher SC on livescore at the moment, and hell yes, my boy scored. Now I hope they can keep that up! It's like 5 mins to go and I am all nervous. But if they win this, it'll be more than amazing - and their best Cup result ever. Yay. Bring it on!

EDIT: THEY WON!!! YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAYY!! Ronny - you are a fricken hero! (So is goalkeeper Alex Walke.)

Now bring on Alemannia Aachen on Sunday. :devil:

01-29-2009, 04:37 PM
Kiwi you're back:bounce: OMG I'm so happy. I was going to post your fixture in here. I hope you're feeling better now:hug:

Yay for Wiesbaden in DFB Pokal:banana: Oooh Ronny:rocker:

Norwich have a new management team:rocker: Bryan Gunn,who played in goal when we famously beat Bayern in UEFA Cup:worship: And we have persuaded another former player,Ian Crook(who also played in the team vs Bayern):worship: to give up his job in Australia to come back:woohoo: John Deehan is also part of the management team,he is also a former player.

The first match Gunny took charge of we thrashed Barnsley 4-0:woohoo: Tuesday night we drew 2-2 with Southampton. Tomorrow we are away at Doncaster,come on you yellows:rocker:

01-31-2009, 11:54 AM
Fangirling tomorrow. :devil: Can't wait, although it is freaking icy outside and I do have a bit of a cold already. Blah. That's what warm underwear and skiing pants are made for, right? ;)

Anyway. I want this:

Hot, no? I've had a crush on that scarf from the first moment I saw it. Which was yesterday. And they said on SVWW's forum that the scarves are available tomorrow at the game already. Yay.

I will also order some stuff from FC St Pauli's store. I've wanted a scarf for quite some time now. Heh. They also have dog leads which have YOU'LL NEVER WALK ALONE written on them. I was like :rolls: when I discovered that.

And, we - Hertha BSC - play vs Eintracht Frankfurt today. I am all in for some serious ass-kicking! Bring it on!

01-31-2009, 05:06 PM
... and the Hertha Train keeps rolling!!

1 Hoffenheim 18 12 2 4 44 23 21 38
2 Berlin 18 11 3 4 29 21 8 36 --> WHAT?! :eek:
3 Hamburg 18 11 3 4 27 24 3 36
4 Bayern 18 10 5 3 39 25 14 35
5 Leverkusen 18 10 3 5 37 22 15 33

9 Schalke 18 7 6 5 24 17 7 27
10 Bremen 17 7 5 5 39 28 11 26
11 Köln 18 7 2 9 20 26 -6 23

17 Bochum 17 1 8 8 19 30 -11 11
18 M'gladbach 18 3 2 13 18 37 -19 11

Okay, the victory vs Frankfurt was a bit on the lucky side, but what matters is that we're SECOND!! :woohoo: I am just so freaking happy right now!

02-14-2009, 03:48 PM
Oh ... My ... GOD!!!

I cannot really believe what just happened in Berlin today. We had Bayern over for a visit, and usually, we lose to them big style. Last year, we managed a goalless draw when they were in Berlin, but lost 1-4 when we played them in Munich. Our last victory dates back from 2001 ...

And today it happened.

WE BEAT BAYERN 2-1!!! In our homebase. Andriy Voronin scored both goals. He brought us up 1-0 in the first half (39'), Klose scored the equalizer (62'), but it was Voronin again who finished those "Lederhosen" off (77'). Hell yes. :worship:

Due to the fact that Hoffenheim lost 1-4 to Leverkusen yesterday, we are now TOP OF THE TABLE!!!

I am so happy right now, I could cry!

EDIT: Here's the table for the non-believers among you ;)

1. (3.) Hertha BSC Berlin 20 12 4 4 32:23 +9 40 --> HELL YES!!
2. (1.) 1899 Hoffenheim 20 12 3 5 46:28 +18 39
3. (2.) FC Bayern München 20 11 5 4 43:28 +15 38
4. (5.) Bayer Leverkusen 20 11 3 6 43:27 +16 36
5. (4.) Hamburger SV 19 11 3 5 29:27 +2 36

18. (18.) Borussia M'gladbach 20 3 4 13 20:39 -19 13

02-14-2009, 07:45 PM
Kiwi,thats brilliant:banana::woohoo: What a feeling being top of the league:rocker:

I just came back from Preston. Norwich played their backsides off and still lost 1-0:sad: We had loads of chances,you know that feeling when the net is gaping and there is a brilliant last ditch challenge,their keeper had a blinder,he got in the way of everything.

We're 20th,under a new manager,a former player at our club,Bryan Gunn,a total legend. He played in the side that famously beat Bayern in UEFA Cup:worship: Its going to be difficult to avoid relegation,but we're not playing like we are in that position. We are playing good football,just no reward.

02-14-2009, 08:18 PM
Di, remember that I told you I'd once take a pic of me how I look when I make my way to a stadium? Well, I took one today. With the exception of the hood being pulled down that much into my face, this is pretty much it: Hertha jacket, shirt underneath it, scarf round my neck (if it's cold, pulled up to my nose), and at least one scarf on my wrist. :)

Anyway ... Hooligan? ME?? :rolls:

02-14-2009, 08:25 PM
Oooh I like the pic Kiwi,thanks for sharing,love the gear:yeah: You're very well wrapped up;)

02-14-2009, 08:35 PM
You're very welcome. :) I am sure there'll be some similar pics to follow soon. :devil:

Meanwhile - here's my collection of footie stuff (plus some American sportswear thrown in):

02-14-2009, 08:43 PM
Awesome Kiwi:worship: Thanks for sharing your collection with me:hug: I have quite a few different football shirts,cricket shirts,there's even motorcycling shirts:lol:

It will take me sometime to put them all on camera,and then load them on my laptop,I'll put them on here at some point;)

02-15-2009, 08:20 AM
My pleasure. I just love collecting footie memorabilia, and I feel there's a bit more to be added soon. ;)

I would love to see your collection, too. But please take your time.

02-15-2009, 03:48 PM
I was raiding yahoo's photo gallery to find photos of our glorious day yesterday.

This is a sight I surely love:

And here's the link to the photoalbum I created:

Because THIS day needs to be treasured. :) Also - there's a Bayern fan living in our house. When I met him today, I asked, "Hey, how did Bayern play yesterday?" :devil: And he just replied, "Ah, shut up!!" :rolls:

I just hope for ONE thing - NO bandwagoners at Hertha BSC. That sort of "fans" pisses me off. :rolleyes:

03-09-2009, 05:01 PM
Four points clear of Bayern, Hoffenheim, Hamburg and Wolfsburg! :worship: I love my boys so freaking much right now!! We also finally did it - we kicked our nemesis's, Energie Cottbus (for some reason, we usually always suck when we have to play against them), ass on Saturday and wiped the pitch with them. When they went up 1-0, I was like, "Oh brother, not again!" But ya know, Cottbus are dumb, they missed the wide-open goal and thus couldn't score their second goal shortly afterwards. :rolls: And ... once again, Andriy Voronin made the difference. He scored ALL THREE Hertha goals. :worship: I think I am getting HIS shirt instead of Nicu's. ;) Even IF we don't buy him (he said, he wanted the decision whether he'd be staying at Hertha by the end of the month), he was a huge part in the mission CHAMPIONSHIP 2009. ;)

Roll on Leverkusen on Saturday!

Oh, and BTW - I am the proud owner and maintainer of a HERTHA BSC group at LiveJournal. :D

03-14-2009, 03:04 PM

My favourite English team travelled to Manchester today to take on the arch-rivals, Manchester United. ManUre went up 1-0, but LIVERPOOL came back. And they did it. They freaking did it!! They wiped the pitch with ManUre and won 4-1 at Old Trafford. OMG. In your stupid faces, ManUre! :rolls:

04-17-2009, 05:36 PM

:inlove: :hearts: :inlove: :hearts: :inlove: :hearts:

And ... whoa, BENNY!!

06-20-2009, 03:05 PM
All of those were taken on Sunday, May 24, 2009, after the match vs Hansa Rostock.

Location: outside BRITA Arena, Wiesbaden:

Aykut Öztürk (will be staying):

Benjamin Hübner (will be staying - and my new fangirl target, now that Ronny has signed for Rot Weiß Oberhausen):

Marcel Ziemer (lots of transfer window drama here, but in the end, he'll go back to 1. FC Kaiserslautern):

Dennis Schmidt (he'll be leaving the club):

Torge Hollmann (will be staying):

and do I have to say who this nice gentleman is? (signed a contract at RWO ... I am already making plans on how to stalk him next season ... :devil: )

BTW, he signed the shirt I am wearing on the pics. I asked him to write a dedication on it as well. Which he did. Yay.

And for your viewing pleasure: :hearts: :inlove: :hearts: :inlove: :hearts: :inlove:

06-20-2009, 05:26 PM
Wow:hearts: Of course I knew you would plan to continue stalking Ronny,dedicated fangirling knows no bounds;)

07-04-2009, 09:56 AM
Stalking trip this afternoon!!! :aplot:

Including a birthday cake and card for Ze Benny as he turns 20 today. I am all systems go, I just need to pass the time until we leave. ;)

I am wearing my KÖNIG shirt today (since I absolutely cannot show up there in a Hertha shirt, can I??) and what does my dad say? "Now she's wearing a shirt that has KÖNIG on the back - and he's at Oberhausen now!"
Me, "I don't have a Benny Hübner shirt at the moment ..." :p

07-05-2009, 11:31 AM
My stalking trip to Grünberg yesterday was a total success. :) As I told you, my current fangirl target, Benjamin Hübner, turned 20 yesterday, and here's what happened:

"Happy Birthday!"
"Thank you." *smiles*
"I got something for you ..." *handing him a card*
Benny takes it.
*taking out the cake* "And this is also for you. Enjoy!"
Benny's eyes SPARKLE in that moment, a huge smile crosses his face. "Thank you so much!"
MISSION: ACCOMPLISHED, I'd say. Awww, he was SO TOTALLY HAPPY in that moment!! I bet he didn't expect something like that. Wheeeee.

You should've seen that smile when I gave him the cake. TO.DIE.FOR!!! :hearts: :inlove:

After the training, coach Hans Werner Moser walked up to me and shook my hand. Yay.

And yes, there are pics. HERE (

Once again, I was out and about to visit SV Wehen Wiesbaden, and yes, folks, I got pics. :angel::D

Thorsten Barg, the gang and me:

Kiwi-goalie Milan (??) Marinovic and me (boy, did I regret that I wasn't wearing my light blue KIWI cap I had bought in NZ!!):

Kristjan Glibo and me:

Torge Hollmann and me:

and "my" Benny Hübner and me (DO YOU SEE HOW CLOSE I WAS TO HIM??? I am like totally snuggling up to him, because he pulls me so close ... asdfghjkl ... I wanna cuddle him ALL DAY LONG ... really!)

07-19-2009, 07:21 PM
Amazing :bounce: Congrats you're soooo close :woohoo:

09-04-2009, 12:54 PM
Holy shit. HOLY.SHIT.

He needs to stop being so completely adorable and cute. *sniffles* Can't wait for my next Benny!stalking adventure. :aplot:

Meanwhile, I've been to Bochum to watch my Blue-White Squad lose another match while I was in the stadium, but I still had a blast, and next weekend, I'll be in Mainz to watch My Boys. :) Yay, can't wait. :D
