Darmstadt game 1 - OFFICIAL MATCH THREAD

Recommended Posts

Interesting 

I wander if this is the preferred starting 11 (allowing for injuries in defence)

Cantwell?

Wouldn’t be surprised to see this lineup on the opening day of the season other than Tettey at CB.

Zimmermann for Tettey and that could be a first-team line-up with Cantwell on the bench for creativity, or quite possibly in Stiepermann's spot, and Emi would probably be where Dowell is.

Stiepermann and Dowell together could be interesting, and it's clear that Pukki likes having Stiepi behind him. Both have some height and strength, whilst Placheta is just bloody fast. I wouldn't be surprised if Stiepi plays Placheta in for low crosses.

My oh my you're still being a bitter, angry old man. How's your heart working? Seems pretty cold.

Not bitter, not angry  , not old , just amazed at your  postingfor the sake of posting....here's a few to consider....." do you think they'll be wearing boots ?" , "has the refs haircut influenced  the game" , " will Farke be wearing a green or black parka today?".

1-0 City. Placheta. Keeper has a 'mare.

Placheta did well with his speed to get it but damn, awful keeping all on the keeper that one

Indeed, but it was some good pressing from the lads to create the error. Need lots of that this season.

Glad they've found a pitch today rather than a field.  

Says quite a lot when you look at this pitch, which is somewhat uneven and has quite a few holes and can think "Yeah, this is much better than the last one"

 

Still confused why they thought playing on that pitch was a good idea

Was he the crosser? Struggled to see who it was.

OTBC

think it was Placheta, he did really well to catch up to the ball to get it too thought it was going out

Our defending isn’t exactly decisive! Yes I know it’s a criticism when we’re 2-0 up but Farke did say he wanted to see us concede less chances and they’re spending plenty of time around our box atm.

Pre-season and all that, but been quite suspect defensively already.
