    Haji’s looked good, but he’s always a half-yard offside, it seems. The camera at Augsburg is super high up, so it’s great for watching his positioning.

    Yeah, so far he is getting direct service. A big change. He is fighting for position, back to goal and making runs. Big difference from last time.

    Wright has been decent. I get the feeling he's going to be called lazy his whole career due to his body language.

    also, it's hard not to look slow and languid when you are a 6'4" soccer player - cannot think of a single high-energy, quick player at that height.

    1-1 draw. A fair result and an important point on the road for Schalke.

    Hadji was soooooo much better than his debut. It’s encouraging. He actually looked like a professional. More agressive, better runs and better tactically. Still a lot to work on like movement and anticipation but that comes with experience of playing.

    Much better and an improvement over his previous appearance. It will take a bit off time adjusting to this level but you could see potential

    there you go - an exception to the rule - and proof it is not impossible.

    it was against another just-above-relegation side.

    easier to show potential, but yes, it’s there...altho he needs time on the pitch to confirm that he can play at this level.

    not sure he’ll get enough. he has to make do - power thru. and he doesn’t “LOOK LIKE” (i know that doesn't mean much) that kind of player.
