So how long until Mourinho is kicked out?

It's not the manager's fault if his players miss penalties.

Bundesliga - Matchday 4

Schalke 0-2 Bayern
Stuttgart 0-0 Düsseldorf
Hoffenheim 1-1 Dortmund
Leverkusen 1-0 Mainz
Frankfurt 1-1 Leipzig
Augsburg 2-3 Bremen
Berlin 4-2 Gladbach
Wolfsburg 1-3 Freiburg
Nürnberg 2-0 Hannover

Schalke unsurprisingly earned their fourth loss in this young season. Dortmund was heavily outclassed throughout the entire game and when things got worse for them with a red card, they somehow managed to score the equalizer for a very lucky point. Leverkusen got their first points this season while Bremen benefited from a late embarrassing mistake by Augsburg's goalkeeper. Gladbach's display on defense was so atrocious that it was a miracle that they conceded only four goals; meanwhile, Hertha BSC Berlin can celebrate their personal best start into a Bundesliga season. Freiburg picking apart Wolfsburg was a surprise.

Looking at the standings, things are thinning out at the top as Berlin remains the only team within striking distance of the serial champion Bayern. Hannover and Stuttgart show how difficult year 2 in the Bundesliga is while Nürnberg and Düsseldorf are looking solid in year 1; that's how these things commonly play out. Still early in the season, so it's hard to predict where teams are going to settle. As mentioned last week, the early season schedule has distorted reality quite a bit.

Thanks, I appreciate your Bundesliga summaries.

Come on Derby, cracking performance at old Trafford last night



Fuck this piece of shit team and their piece of shit luck and their piece of shit referees. I fucking hate them.

Can't believe how long they've been riding this luck against us. It was Willian's lucky goal last year, then us missing a couple of sitters at Stamford Bridge, now Sturridge misses another sitter and then hits the post while they score a goal from a free kick which wasn't a foul, only to then score from an offside position which the VAR spent 3 minutes looking at only to give the goal anyway. It's like football is guaranteed to always be 100% bullshit when it involves Chelsea, ugh.



Also fuck Alberto Moreno, the worst left back I have ever seen. He somehow seems to only get worse everytime he plays.

He's not the best, but we have Bertrand, it's about time Liverpool bought a player from saints isn't it?



Hmm, pie.

Bundesliga - Matchday 5

Bremen 3-1 Berlin
Hannover 1-3 Hoffenheim
Bayern 1-1 Augsburg
Freiburg 1-0 Schalke
Düsseldorf 1-2 Leverkusen
Leipzig 2-0 Stuttgart
Dortmund 7-0 Nürnberg
Mainz 0-0 Wolfsburg
Gladbach 3-1 Frankfurt

Since Bremen's coach Kohfeldt took over in mid-fall 2017, the team is undefeated in 15 consecutive home games; Berlin has a less admirable streak, they had a penalty kick against them in all five games this season. Hannover, much like Stuttgart, isn't good enough at the moment; Stuttgart hasn't scored a goal in four of five games. While Augsburg fought hard and their new goalkeeper had eight saves, the biggest factors in the surprising draw were how careless and wasteful Bayern was with their scoring opportunities and how Neuer misjudged the late corner kick that led to the equalizer. Schalke is without luck, they hit the post twice in a game where a draw would have been a much fairer result. Leverkusen didn't get punished for sleepwalking through the first half (0-8 shots), then took advantage of it in the second half; Düsseldorf's goal came in the final minute of injury time. Einbahnstraßenfußball in Dortmund; Nürnberg didn't look Bundesliga-ready in this one and can be happy that it didn't go into double digits.

While Bremen was lucky in the first few games, they are now playing on a level where they deserve the points; in this form they'll be able to live up to their own expectations of being a serious contender for an international spot after years of mediocrity and suckiness. Both Dortmund and Gladbach have won their three home games, so the important thing to watch is if they can get any positive consistency in away games; otherwise they won't be able to challenge Bayern. Wolfsburg and Mainz will likely descend to the bottom half of the table soon enough while Leipzig and Hoffenheim are moving up. Leverkusen has won twice after starting the season with three losses. Schalke's coach is unsurprisingly on the hot seat. As is Stuttgart's coach, whose successful run that peaked with a 4-1 win in Munich last season seems like a distant past now.

Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

Wow Sevilla trashed Real Madrid. First la liga game I watched this season. Have the current CL champions struggled so bad in other matches as well?

I wouldn't mind getting a better backup LB, but Bertrand has played for Chelsea, so no thanks.

(And yeah I know we have players that have played for Chelsea, most notably Salah, but it's just... Bertrand has that "Chelsea vibe" to him, if you know what I mean.)

Yes, definitely, Romeu has the same feel. :P
